of the right-of-way. The highway
official pointed out that he did
not feel any property owner should
sign a right-of-way petition until
he was first sure of exactly where
the road was going. "Find out
first, then sign if you are satis
fied," the people were told,
The plan is for state forces to
do as much of the grading, and
straightening of curves as possi
ble. This would save money, and
permit the savings to be put on
additional miles of paving.
Commissioner Thrash thanked
Haywood for not putting "high
pressure" on the engineers and
himself. "Such tactics just con
sume time, and after all, this is

will work with you from an over
"We do not have secret sessions,
All meetings are open. And the
best way to get what you want is
to decide for yourselves, and have
your committee recommend that
project," he stressed again.
When asked about paving
Highway No. 209 In Fines Creek,
Mr. Thrash pointed out that no
rural road money could be spent
on a numbered highway. "But
I will tell you, that this summer:
or fall, I hope the contract will
be let to pave Nd. 209 from: Fer
guson's store' all the way to; Hot
. Springs. This would be jjpaid
for out of state and federal did
funds, and as part of our regular
road program," he said.
A number of citiezns pointed out
where crushed stone was now
needed for improving rural roads
Mr. Knight said he was aware of
such places, and that orders had
been given to highway forces to
get such roads fixed immediately,

After the group formally passed
the second phase of the proposed
projects, Commissioner Thrash and
his associates heard from citizens
as to roads that are now "mud
roads" and need immediate atten
tion. As this phase of the discussion
progressed, Commissioner Thrash
reminded several that in many in
stances there were roads not on the
state system, and because of this
fact, no stone could be put on
by highway forces. "It (does appear
odd. that sometimes we put crush
ed stone to within several hundred
yards of a man's house, then stop.
