Gigaitic Secondary Road Improvement
Planned By State Highway Department
The State Highway Department’s
19,786,837 first post-war Federal aid
secondary road improvement pro
gram, consisting of 149 projects
totaling 258 miles on county and
state highway system road in 84
counties, including Noble county,
has been submitted to the Public!
Roads Administration for approval,
Highway Director Perfy T. Ford an
nounced today.
Approval of the vast program is
expected by June 1., Director Ford
said, and the Highway Department
will offer the projects for sale as
quickly as possible after that ap
proval is received.
Earlier this year, the Highway
Department submitted to the PRA
for approval Ohio’s plan for a 12,200
mile Federal-aid secondary road sys
tem stretching into every one of the
state’e 88 counties. It was necessary
to set up such a system before the
state could participate in the 1944
Federal Highway Act program. This
act authorized an annual $500,000
000 road improvement appropriation
for distribution to the states for the
first three post-war years, this to
be matched 50-50 by the states.
The act provides that $225,000,000
be spent annually for Federal prim
ary routes, $125,000,000 annually
for urban routes and $150,000,000
annually for secondary routes. Ohio’s
Federal allotment for each of the
three years is: primary routes,
$7,904,000 secondary roads, $4,658,
000 urban highways, $7,540,000.
All but 475 miles, or less than
three per cent, of the mileage sub
mitted to PKA as Ohio secondary
road system, was approved. Of the
approved 11,750 mile system, 4,952.9
miles are on local road systems
(county and township) and 6,796.8
on the state highway system.
A total of 996 routes in Ohio are
included in this secondary system
approved by PRA. Every county was

wMOTHERS
asked, early this year, to submit
their first and second post-war
years’ secondary road improvement
projects to the Highway Department
When those were received, the de
partment selected those projects it
considered most urgent and included
them on the 1946 program.
Forty-six of the first-year pro
jects are on the state highway sys
tem, and 103 on the local roads.
Seventy-nine counties have local
projects and 46 counties have pro
jects on the state highway system.
The Federal secondary allotment
of $4,257,514 was divided equally
between local roads and state high
ways, with the Ohio Planning Sur
vey project being financed from the
state’s share, Mr. Ford explained.
To be as fair as possible, the local
road share was divided among the
counties on the same basis as motor
vehicle and gasoline tax funds. The
1946 Federal aid secondary funds
allocated to each county represent
10 per cent of the 1940 income of
each county from its motor vehicle
and gasoline taxes.
It has been agreed by the state
and counties, Director Ford said,
that the counties will finance all
project costs over and above the
legal maximum Federal aid second
ary funds assignable to the project
or the total allocation of Federal aid
secondary funds to the county which
ever is the smaller amount of Fed
eral funds.

(looked A Fine Dinner
Then Threw It To Dog
One lady recently stated that she
used to throw her own dinner to the
dog most of the time. It made her
sick just to look at anything to eat.
Shj was swollen with gas, full of
bleat, had headaches, felt worn out
and was badly constipated. Finally
she got ERB-HELP and says she
now eats everything in sight and
digests it perfectly. Bowels are reg
ular and normal. She is enjoying
life once more and feels like “some
other woman” since taking this New
Compound.
ERB-HELP contains 12 Great
Herbs* they cleanse bowels, clear gas
from stomach, act on sluggish liver
and kidneys. Miserable people soon
feel different all over. So don’t go

Missionary Returns To Africa
1
Mr. and Mrs. Edmund Long of Caldwell, Ohio have received word
that their son, William, and his family sailed from New York with a group
of missionaries on April 24. They were scheduled to sail on the “Marine
Tiger,” a fast troop ship, which will arrive 14 days later in Cape Town,
South Africa. From Cape Town, the twelve women and children in the
group will be flown to their station at Bangui in French Equatorial Africa
to spare them the rigorous overland trip. The men will drive their cars
and trucks the 5,500 miles tnrough the central part of Africa.
Rev. Long and his family will be located at the same station where
they previously served during the six years they were in Africa. These
missionaries have been trying to obtain passage to return to Africa for
the past year in order to relieve Reverend and Mrs. Guy Laird, whom they
sometime. Mr. and Mrs. Laird started home recently, but news was re
ceived today of the sudden death of Mr. Laird at Leopoldville, Belgian
Congo—just a week prior to their passage to America.
Shown in the picture above is Rev. and Mrs. William Long and
their daughters: Marilyn, 5 and Juanita, 8. The background is the picture
of one of the native villages as painted by Mrs. Long.
The Longs are fortunate in that they have been provided with
an unusual list of equipment to enable them in doing evangelistic work
in the villages many miles from their central station. Among their equip
ment is a specially constructed truck and house trailer which Mr. Long
built himself and equipped with electric lights and loud speaking system
to make possible evening meetings,
