VOLUME 30. NO. 24 COTTONWOOD, IDAHO, FRIDAY, JUNE 9, 1922 $2.00 PER YEAR GOVERNOR DAVIS VISITS THE CITY _ I SAYS NOT ALL OF THE ROAD MONEY DOES FOR SURVEYING. Gov. D. W. Davis, of Idaho, spent more than an hour in Cot tonwood Tuesday morning while enrouted from Boise to Moscow over the north and south high way. The governor was ac- 1 companied by F. A. Jeter, pur chasing agent, and they made the trip in a Cadalic car While in the city the governoi met as manv of the business men as was possible and he congrat ulated Cottonwood on its street improvements. j lhe governor w-as enrouted for Moscow whep he wiH attend the graduating exercises of the , 3 state university and make short address. In Lewiston he gave out the following inter view regarding the north and south highway: "We should get as many peo ple as possible to go over the north and south highway this year. Idaho is onb state. The idea of sectionalizing Idaho is a mistake. Noilh Idaho has ieen remarkably well treated >-unie interesting ligures aie presen ed when we consider the work on the north and south highway. On the section from Weiser to Council, the sum of 8412,854 has been expended. Between Coun cil and Grangeville, there has al ready been spent 81,971.200. North of Grangeville to the Canadian line, the amunt ex pended is $2,288,300. The total is $4,500,000 already spent on the north and south highway. "I wish that all might take a trip over the highway and see what has been done. We have a wnai. nas ueeii none. vie nave a nght to be proud of the results obtained for the money expend ed. Much unthinking criticism is made that is unjust. It can be remembered that in places where it formerly took four horses to pull an empty wagon, ÎL g .°°f C . ai Ll!°.... b . 0 cousu uuuuii is I.i.m>. standing foi the "hole s.< e moved. It is expensive construe tion, but where finished it can be traveled at the rate of from 30 to 35 miles an hour. Traffic oyer, it should lie encouraged. Much of the money which built it came from outside of the part where the construction is made. We are of Idaho "When a man says that 50 per cent of the highway funds are spent for engineering we will find that hardly more than 7 1-2 per cent is actually used, and thus far the government has paid it. The department must meet some specified conditions laid down by the government. There are a few things that we should know. We have a great responsibility as citizens. If we meet this responsibility we can continue to grow and pros per, as we should when we do our duty." Governor Davis will to Boise via the north and south highway and will pass through Cottonwood either today or to morrow. , . , - 1 INTEREST RATE CUT.
