If we should fail to support it we will lose the biggest chance we ever had to get road. Kuads or No Roadn. I would like to remind the readers of your paper that the proposed bond i not. the state will continue to collect tilla county. The truth Is, that our present method of patchwork to the tune of one hundred twenty thousand dollars per year, is not a modern, scientific or economical way to han dle the road situation. Nearly every state in the I'nlon haa recognised this fact. The economical way to build roads is to build permanent roads. We MiH lay Anyway. Whether we pass the bond bill or 'I'd J bill does ifot present an alternative by which each voter can select what he think is the best means for the build ing of roads. Bear in mind that at this time we huve no choice whether we shall build road by issuance of the bond or by the fens equitable method of direct tax. The bond meas ure Is presented by itself. We can like it or leave It. The practical question is thin: Do we want lo im prove our more important roads? In less than ninety days the heavy trav el will cut our dirt roads to pieces At intervals during the winter the roads are almost impassable on account of mud. Some seasons of the. year our roads are pretty good. A greater part of the time they are not good. The Intervals of good road and bad roads have been recurring for half a century. T for one. reached the conclusion that we might to have good roads throushout the whole year and ought to get some good roads now. Tn other words, we ought to see to It thst the bond bill Is approved by the people. Knrface for Macadam Road. If the bond bill passes, the High way t onimlKSion are on recora tnat they will hard surface the macadam road from Pendleton to the Washing ton Mate line. The macadam road has already cost us a fortune. Ever body know it need repair. What are r gfttiur to do If the bond hill dnf not carry and tlm tate dira not hard -iirfac th- macadam mad? We have a chance for one of two things. We van repair the niacadem road ourselves or we can let It go to complete ruin If re repair It. how will we repair It? Where will we tet the money? The truth In. we have no mmwy and the six per cent limi tation ties the bancs of the county court. MllikHi for Vatch Work. The thing that convinces me is. that the state is now spending be tween three and four million dollars per year upon patch work. Umatilla county spi-ntlis more- than one hundred thousand dollara per year. According to the figures submitted by the coun ty court, nearly un-tialf of this huge um i spnt every year for patch work and repair on a limited number of miles of rid connecting the cen ters of population- Theno are th roads that will be Improved by the state If we pass the bond measure. Is it not better to make permanent state roads out of thee main highways so hat Umatilla county can divert it's road funds to the read extending through the country sections of this county? The opponent of the bond measure all fmy they are in fvor of good road and they proe their loyalty to he cause of good road by oio?ini he only plin that ha been offered which good ronas can be bui!t The method of bulling roads by di rect tan under the present bis will never work. Iecue it cannot work The Idea ran be illustrated this way If a btisities has one hundred twenty-seven tilers income per er an 1 n anmiNl eie?ij, of one hundred twentv-en doll, it. It will not be poSMshi for It to make pernanen improvement. If thts same business ttwtitmton conld ivh bond ami r;i? money with whieh to make it er tiisnent Improvement an 1 thus e one-h lf of Its annu.i evpt-nse tt can cre;ite a fund for continuing the per manent improvements. This i.ltjtr-i-t..n represents the condition of Vma- the quarter mill tax and the double automobile license will have to ba paid in any event. In the bond bill there is a designation of roads th state of Oregon Is bound to recog nize. It is provided that a liberal proportion of the highway funds should be spent in eastern Oregon. We know without doubt that a consider able mileage in I .'mat ilia county in addition to the macadam road, will be hard surfaced by the state. If the bond bill fails, don't let us fool ourselves into the belief that we will receive any considerable state aid in Umatilla county. We might get some aid. because Umatilla county is rep resented in the state highway com misaion, but we are in the minority. Kastem Oregon Is a minority. This country is -looked upon by lots of people in western Oregon aa a kind of a desert. They will not be dis posed to see the state build highway in eastern Oregon, because they want the highway built in western Ore gon. The need in western Oregon for roads Is even more apparent than It I In eastern Oregon. They are in deep mud six montns of the year. Their demands for state aid amount almost to a clamor. Our voters her do not realise this part of the situa tion. If they did. no one would con sider for a moment casting a vote against the bond bill. The vote in this county ought to he unanimous in its favor. t'ncle Ram Wants It. I desire to call attention to one more thing. Whenever the oppon ents of the bond bill have been smoked out of all other positions, they say the bond bill may be al right, but this Is no time to sell bonds and no time to build roads. I have but little faith in my own provincial judgment on a matter of ; this kind, but I believe It 1 about a good as the provincial judftment of nv other provincial. The answer this kind of talk is. that the Unit ed Slate govern men d e si res u to continue our normal Industrial acti vities so far as possible. If we ihonltl stop el' development on ac count of the war. onr nation would intin be too weak tn ca rrv on a war to a successful concn-iin.

Mi of the important military affairs committee of the United States sen ate is on record in favor of road de velopment. Secretary of War Baker who Is by law the cnairraan of the national council of defense and in a sense is the mouth piece of the ad ministration and of the President of the United State, has publicly de clared his desire that the highway commission of all the states may has ten to build good roads connecting the centers of population for military purposes. Uncle Sam needs Improv ed trunk roads as an auxiliary to the railroads. leaving aside our self-interests and the desire for the better ment of our own county and the pur pose o f in creasi n g the val ue of our own property, every man and wom an In this county should support the administration by voting for the bond issue. Upon June 4th. we will re ceive the first practical test of our patriotism, and the result will show whether we are slackers or whether we are trying to do what our gov ernment desires us to do.
