WORK CUT 20 PER CENT Twenty per cent less than wad originally planned will bo spent in the county this year on state trunk line roads, but practically the entire improvement program for the year will be carried out, William W. Cox, county road en gineer states. While the supervisors last Oct ober appropriated $160,000, en nough to meet tho county's share of the $640,000 expenditure plan ned tho state will spend less than $100,000 instead of $480,000. The county's share of the trunk lino road improvement is 25 percent. Since the state has cut on its total expenditures more than $J'0, 000 will remain out of the 3160,000 appropriation. "The drop of 20 per cent or more in cost of road construction has made it possible to carry out practically the entire program at a considerable less expense," Mr. Cox explained.
