motor trucks, carrying loads, over the
highways of Vermont from Fort Ethan
Allen to St. Johnsbury as a test run.
It is said that the trip was intend
ed to be a snow test but the season
was so far advanced that it was more
of a mud test for the motor trucks.
More than that, and immeasurably
more important, it was a test of Ver
mont roads to which they should not
have been subjected. In our neighbor
ing state of New Hampshire they have
just passed a law requiring that motor
trucks keep off designated highways
during the spring when the frost is
coming out of the ground and the
highways are in a soft condition. The
new law is reasonable and absolutely
necessary if the roads are to be kept
from complete demolishment. Yet in
Vermont these armv trucks were sent
over one of the most important high
ways in the state at a time when
heavily loaded vehicles were calculated
to damage the roads materially.
Through the towns of Essex, Jericho,
Underhill, Cambridge, Johnson, Mor
ristown, Wolcott, Hardwick, Greens
boro, Walden and Danville to St.
Johnsbury the army trucks ploughed
their way through a combination of
snow and mud. At one point, so the
news dispatches stated, the trucks
were stalled and mired so that trac
tors which were carried on some of
the trucks, ostensibly as "loads" but
more likely as motor aid in just such
emergencies as were met, had to be
used in hauling the trucks out of the
mud. It is said that the ruts dug
by the army trucks ranged in depth
in some places from 10 inches to 'Z0
inches, while the grinding which the
tractors subjected the roads to in the
places where the trucks were mired
added to the destruction of the high
way. The damage done to the high
ways cannot, according to the Burling
ton Clipper, be repaired at less than
$50,000, thus adding to the tremendous
burden of upkeep which Vermont has
been carrying for a long time. And
that, too, just to make a "test run!"
The order which sent the trucks over
the highways of Vermont was a se
rious mistake but was almost equalled
by the tacit permission given by the
state department of highways and
town departments to carry through the
so-called test. The federal government
ought to pay for the damage done.
