BLACKSMITHS AND WOODWORKMEN HORSE SHOEING $LM Weeks Old Stand PRESCOTT. ARKANSAS. CLASH ON ROAD ISSUE. Washington, May 20— Alabamans clashed today when representatives of the United States Good Hoads Associa tion and of the Bankhead Highway As sociation appeared before the Senate Host Roads Committee at hearings on the Townsend bill to establish a feder al highway system and a federal high way commission. The argument between J. A. Round tree of Birmingham, representing the Good Roads Association, and Senator Heflin, a member of the committee, be gan when the former on the witness stand gave his unqualified approval to the pending bill. Senator Heflin im mediately said the present law govern ing federal aid to road building was good enough. Mr. Roundtree replied that the pres ent act had resulted ‘in the building of little dabs of roads,” and that many of the roads are deteriorating rapidly because there was no provision com pelling their maintenance. The Ala bama senator questioned the latter statement, and Mr. Rountree exclaim ed : • Why there is a road riming out from Birmingham built several years ago with federal money but not main tained adequately, that has lieoome so rough that milkmen starting to town with sweet milk find their cans full of buttermilk when they reach Birming ham." Roundtree added that $2,<XH). 000 had been spent by the federal gov ern ment on roads in Alabama but that many of these highways had become "almost as bad as they were before they were built.” -o PLEASE CALL BY NUMBER We now have out our new telephone directory, and will have them delivered to our subscribers Friday and Satur day, and in order to keep a check and know that each subscriber gets a di rectory, you will please write your telpehone number on the old one and give it to the boy in exchange for the new one.
