she was supported by Mrs. Gertrude
Azzato, who said she was a childhood

eration. The above number of days divided
Into the total number of miles trav.
cled by the machines shows that 31,
306 miles were traveled on tho aver
age each of the 260 days, which makes
the distance traveled (if traveled by
fourth times around the earth.
Besides during the year the ma
chines of the state highway depart
ment must have traveled In distance
366 tjmes arodnd the earth, or from
