A special session i f the (.ich

been called to meet at Kich

the purpose of raising revenue

Federal appropriation for good

Federal Act several million dol?
lars Uro appropriated but of the
Federal treasury for roads m
this state, provided the state
appropriates an equal amount
The state docs not have funds
at present to meet this gift from
the government, hence the Leg

not take the position that it
