Over two score of pins already introduced In the apeclal ftslon of the Sixty-sixth Congress make evident the positive demand that la de veloping all over the United State for nationalised highways and more com plete control of federal expenditures on roads by the government. Though the extra session Is yet young, come forty bill having highways aa their major them have been dropped into the legislative hopper, while more than a score of ethers which deal with the road situation to a greater or lesser degree are now en file. Clilf among these In interest, of course, is the measure of Senator Charles K. Townsend. of Michigan, providing for a national system of highways, a federal liighwy commission, and a thorough study of the principles governing trans portation. This bill was first Introduced at the hist session. Since then it has been sub jected to a nation-wide criticism, wltn the result that numerous powerful or gs a I sat ions have gone on record favoring It as a bill which treats the subject In the broadest manner and with due con sideration for the varying needs of the respective states.

Senator Morris Sheppard of Texas Is the author of one bill calling for a. mili tary highway along the Southwestern bor der while Representative Hayden of Arl sona also would have the war department at once undertake a survey and Investi gate the need for a boundary road. Rep resentative Hudspeth of Texas, has about the same Idea, except that he would not delay In starting the building of such a irllltary highway. Senator Jones of Washington would nave a survey of the entire Pacific coast for the purpose of Investigating the need of a military road. He would also aurvey and locate a military and post road from Ht. Louis to Olympla. Wash. Representative Lea of Callforlna. pro poses a hlghwsy for mllltsry coast de fense purposes along the Northern Pacific coast of his state, to be known as the Roosevelt highway.

Senator King, of Utah, believes that the national forests should be returned to the department of the interior. Instead f being administered by the department of agriculture, which arrangement. It will ne remembered, traces back to the Roose velt administration, when the change was fen see to meet the wishes of Gifford Pln chot. the then chief forester.
