With the many splendid improve ments in the Potlatch that give promise of being fulfilled in the near future, there is nothing to be discouraged about here. Did anyone ever hear of a good argument a gainst gooct roads? The comm onfargumentfagainst themjis that they cost too"much. Any man with sound business judgment knows* that' bad roads cost many times more in [the end than good roads. Unless the discipline laid down by the teachers is sustained by the parents of the pupils, it is a hard matter for^the teachers to get re sults. It used to be a good old fashioned method, and one in which there was some merit, to warn the child that if it received a thresh ing at school, another was waiting for it at home. GOOD BUSINESS SENSE From the standpiont of a hard headed business man there is only one side to the good roads question and that is—good roads. -We have been so used to depending upon our county commissioners to settle the road questions and to foot the bills from our annual tax money, that when we consider taking the initia tive and building real common sense roads it has the appearance of too big an undertaking. On the contrary it is a comparatively simple matter to form good roads districts or highway districts and vote bonds for the building of roads. It is not as expensive to spend a large amount of money at one time and get results as it is to spend a smaller portion from year to year and have nothing better-j~ than at the beignning. . Below are a few figures taken from a reliable source that ought to I make even the most skeptical stop and think - In the first place it has been said , 4 i . , that the world is never more than sixty days ahead of famine. Just now the period of time is much shortened on account of the ed condition of trade as a result of the war. Hoover says: "Fifty per cent of our perishable food stuffs never reach the consumers because the farms upon which they are rais ed are too remote from the markets in which they are sold and from forty to sixty percent of our potato crop is lost each year by rotting in the ground, owing to lack of trr.ns- j portation means or spoiling on the | way to market because of inad-1 equate transportation over long dis , ,, la . It is said that the United States has been paying a penalty of more thean $504,000,000 in the excessive cost of the transportatidh of our agricultural products alone because of its neglect of highways. No wonder the country is at last wak ing up to the fact that roads are badly needed. Good hard surfaced roads mean that much of the hauling in an agricultural district like the Pot latch will be done with motor trucks. This is an economic sav . , , ingg over the use of work animals. t Our 40,000,000 work animals are | eating the crops of an acreage that, planted to food, would sustain 40, 000,000 more people. A committee appointed by the Government compiled the following figures: The saving effected by improved roads in this country would be approximately one billion dollars annually or ten dollars for every man, woman and child in the j country. j It is estimated that the total mil age of roads in the United States is j 2,645,760 and approximately 125,000 J of this amount is surfaced. These figures show that exclusive of the roads in the Potlatch there are j other sections in the United States ! that need roads. If the above figures, which show ! such a loss of both money and food stuffs, hold good on a large area of country, why would they not he ' equally true in the same ratio when applied to our road conditions right here in the Potlatch? If these fig ures are true, farmers in this com munity are losing thousands of dol lars every year on account of the poor transportation accomodations. Let's be economical and build roads. POOR OLD DAD When our government declared war Against the German Hun, Dad said to John it's up to us To put them on the run. Dad was all right, but his hair was white Which wouldn't let him through, While John was over fighting Huns Dad done the work of two. Dad said the way to win this war Was to work both night and morn, And ship our Allies wheat and meat While we live on rye and corn. When Dad kneeled at his bed-side 'Neath the stars and stripes un furled, He did not ask for daily bread But the freedom of the world. John fought them like a hero And showed his Yankee grit, But they never could have won this war If Dad hadn't done his bit, John fought the Huns on No Man's Land While mother sat and knit, And Dad worked in the harvest field. They'all have done their bit. When the Germans saw the stars and stripes They didn't lose mueh time In trying to save their bacon, But they couldn't save the Rhine. John came back with his medals Ani ever\one was glad. Will someone pin a medal On the breast of Poor Old Dad? ---- The Guitar I The gnitar is an instrument of six string«, nr., E, A, D, G, B, E.
