The dru.tures going to the Rickcnbackcr ( 'on.stt'uc uoii Company, of Union, S. ('., for $,r0,:WL.r)0, making a total of $181, (!27.5(). ..-."... The letting came soon after a del egation from Haywood and Transyl vania counties appealed in a special hearing before Chairman 'of the Com mission, Capus M. Waynick, During the course of the hearinjr the fact was brought out that an other $100,(100 had been designated for construction of pait of the road on the Hay wtiixt county side of the mountain.-' This com met i.s expected to be awarded during August. Just whether, the $10(1,1100 will be spent on the si retch of road from Woodrow to Springdalcdr on the was not stated. The highway has been put on the Fedeial Road system, which is an as surance that i: will be built. Mr. Waynick" told the delegation Tuesday that the commission had already com mitted themselves- as "going ahead anil building the eniiie road." The point the delegation was most inter ested in was 'when." To this quest lion, Mr. Waynick gave assurance thai as soon its funds w re available. (lne of tin1 points made by the delegation was the .fact that High way No. 2H I goes through the 1'isyah National Forest and also connects the Park with Ihe Forest. It. was for this reason that it. was put. on the Federal Highway sys-tem. The comimission is busy ibis week making allotments of the funds for the coming year, but it will be some time before any delinifc amount, can be .."ear marked" for the work on this road. He did say, however, that some of 'this year's funds would go on No. 2S 1. I was tin' oiiiiiion of the (dlicials . that a total of approxinuitidy $500,-. 000 would be needed to 'complete the road from Wavnosville to lirevard.

Engineers have almost completed; the. lield work tin . the entire road -and ihe otltce work Will Ite completed ill time for the Aigu"t meeting of the . (pmmis-ion, the delegation was told. The .nevv proposed route will be six miles shorter than the present route, making, the .distance about ,'i I miles. Mr. Waynick promised the delega tion that he and other members of the commission would 'be' in the Way ne.sville section within the next few". Weeks, arid make a personal survey of the road. The entire membership of the commission later informed Frank W. Miller, that thejr plans were- virtually complete for tlie trip. While the actual construction of the road in Transylvania county will get underway soon, it is the general belief tbat it Will be- so met ime. before the road all the way i.s completed. After conferring with Mr. 'Waynick on the matter, the delegation went into de"fiil on the matter with R, Getty Browning, locating engineer of the highway commission. Mr. Brown ing made the unsolicited statement that in his opinion Highway No. 284 would be one of the, most important "highway feeders to the Scenic Parkway." .-. . "iThere are scenes to be had from the proposed new route of the high-. way that cannot be found anywhere else some measuring up to the many views of the Parkway itself,'' he fti'ted. ;". "The peopje of North Carolina are not fully aware of the value of the, Parkway to this- state. I know that when it is, completed that the people will flock into North Carolina via this route by the thousands it would be impossible to even fence them out. In Virginia there is a stretch of 27 miles of the road now ready, and the cars literally pack the Entire length of it at all times," he conclu.t edt' ''"-' :'.--.. -' ' '- , " Although members of the delega tion were not present in the after noon meeting of the commission, it (Continued on back page)
