UP SCHOOL GROUNDS, ETC.
The program for Thursday, Public Roads, Grounds and Buildings Day,
is intended to suggest ways and means by which young and old, men and
women, in every community, may join in actual physical effort together. It
is to be a genuine "work day" with recreational features for the noon hours
and the afternoon or evening. Let the local committee for this day arrange
a schedule of community work which will provide.

On Good R ""d? Day in 1011, Governor Craig led a band of road workers
in his home township in Buncombe. At Chapel Hill, Dr. Pratt, of the Gelogi
cal Survey, and President Graham, of the University, with many citizens
of the town, several members of the faculty and four hundred students, side
drained and surfaced with gravel an eighth of a mile of Franklin Street, the
main street of the town. In Randolph County, 2,000 men and boys worked
two days using one hundred and fifty teams, grading eight miles and gravel
ing one and one-half miles of road.
On account of the vital interdependence between good roads and good
schools, special care should be taken to improve the approaches to the school
Remove logs, rocks, stumps and stones from the roadway; fill holes, pref
erably with good earth; cover stretches of sand with clay and gravel; drain
wet places in the roadway; scrape off and outwards sod margins where they
hold the water with sand or gravel; but the gravel should not contain any
clay unless it is to be placed on sand. Culverts may be repaired or new
culverts put in. Road drags (of planks or split logs) should be made and
arrangements perfected for using them after rains, throughout the season
on all clay or loamy soils. Don't try to do too much. Don't start more than
you can finish. You cannot build a macadam road, nor very long stretches
of gravel road in one day. Don't haul gravel onto roads that have not been
properly graded and drained. Don't grade roads that have not been properly
staked out on correct lines. Don't plow long stretches of road and leave
them impassable. Don't scrape sods on to the traveled roadway and leave
them for passing vehicles to smooth
