I MEASURING HUMAN PROGRESS
There Has Never Been High State of
Civilization Without Dependable
. T ransportation.
There are now 115,000 miles of
paved or suffaced highways in the ;
United States ? more than there at* or .
ever were in any other country in the ,
world. They have all been built, too, '
within comparatively few years. When
the system provided for in the federal
I highway act is completed, the Agrlcul
I tural department reports, the improved
: mileage will amount to ISO, 000 miles, j
I The process will keep right on, with
| accelerating speed, establishing new
trunk lines across the continent and
j Up and down, in a transportation sys
! tem of ever-growing Oneness and dur
Imagine all this network of good
roads swept away ? the condition in
which it would leave the country and
the deterioration that would follow.
Good roads are civilization. There
! has never been a high state of civili
zation without dependable transporta
tion routes connecting every locality
with every other, and still less will
there ever be hereafter, says tlie Brat
tleboro, Vt., Reformer. You can meas
ure modern human progress pretty ac
curately by its road building.

BETTER ROADS BENEFIT ALL
Farmers as Well as Wealthy Tourists
and Trtick Using Corporations
Good roads are vital to all sections
of tlie country. Contrary to common
conception, the wealthy tourists and
truck using corporations form only n I
small fraction ol' those who nre urging j
better highway transportation.
Better roads will benefit two great
. clusses, 3,500,000 of fanners who are
dependent up?ui their automobiles, and
ns many more city dwelling families
with incomes of less than $4,000, who
with the farmers own two-thirds of
all the cars sold. 4
Purely as an Investment, better
roads will pay regular and substan
tial dividends which every enterpris
ing community cannot afford to lose.
Better highways mean better trans
portation and better communities.
HOSPITALS MADE ACCESSIBLE
Automobile and Improved Roads Have
Made It Possible for Farmer to
The development of the automobile
and the construction of hard roads
have made it possible in many sections
to equip and ercct modern hospitals,
even In the smallest towns and cities,
and to make tlie.se hospitals accessible
to patients through the use of motol
ambulances for distances as far as 3#
and 40 miles. The old emergency
operation was performed on the rough
pine table; now, it may be done, in
many instances, under the most mod
ern of hospital advantages.
Greater Road Progress.
According to Thomas H. McDonald,
chief, of the bureau of public roads,
greater progress was made on the na
tion's highways during the last year
than In any similar period in the his
tory of the country.
Increase Valuo of Citizen.
Good roads are to be urged princi
pally for the same reason that good
schools are maintained; namely, be
cause the? increase the intelligence
and value of the citizen to society.
