Thanks to the pushful, pervasive

everywhere the cry for roads, for more

back ha* been that, as yet, there has
been no co-ordination of these multi

contention is that good roads, roads
that ran for thousands of miles
through state after state, are, proper
ty, not the responsibility of the state,
but of the nation. He would have the
federal governmept build a of
national roads Joining the West with
the East, the North and South, connect
ing every part of the country, as is
the case with the- national highways
of Europe, and, as history shows, such
as was the essential equipment of ev

would such an enormous construction
be paid for and kept up? "Suppose,"
asks this eminent engineer, "the gov
