which is to enable the state to qu1allfy

upper house with dis4patch. No oppo
1ton was offered to the prospect of
creating at htighiway commission, as
federal aid was contiuigent upon state
wide organization. The only points at
issue were different ideas as to cen

contingent upon the state's raising suf
