Rlngland has issued a statement In regard to the forest service's road building poli- cy, designed to correct certain Impres- sions of tht scope and character of that work whish he says have arisen. I "Published statements of the amount of money available for roads and trails on national said Mr. Rlngland, "have stimulated jmb lie interest in this subject, particular- ly In communities on or near the for- ests. Tho natural effect on the read- er of a statement that we have money to put Into bonds is for him nt once to think of some road near his home that needs repair and to wonder If ho and his friends cannot got some of the forest road fund for the purpose. That Is only natural. "Hut, wo, havo to expend this money under certain restriction and It Is ob- too, that Ihe amount, we IIUK- is not enough tto do all till road work needed In the district at once. We've got to jmt the money wo havo where tho law prescribes and where It will do the most good. 1 want to outline the policy we use and the limitations that affect us In doing this work, for tho benefit of any one who is not en- tirely clear on the subject. "The amounts earned during .tne past fiscal your for expenditure under the road and trail Item are. for Arizona and for New Mex- ico. The fund Is cumulative; that Is, if-tho entire amount earned during any given year is not spent during year it goes as available until used. "Tho law specifically stales that the funds shall be used for the construc- doing ft well. It will readily be aippre- clated that there must of necessity be many roads that should receive atten- toii which we must leave untouched for the present. We are using our best discretion to undertake what now seem the most projects first with the Idea of best serving the In- terests of the people of each state as a whole by making our road work as thorough and as permanent as H slble."

In alloting funds Ihe for- ests within the state have been con as a and certain districts within this unit have been consider- ed as more important and needing more funds than others. Since good road construction needs ample funds it would not. be practicable to dlstrih- uale small sums to every forest or every ranger district and derive per- manent results. The fund is assured! yearly, through increasing and it is therefore planned to and construct first the more Import- nut roads and in time reach roads In every forest. "Tlio roads worked last year were those that seemed to us tho most im- _ portnnt projects. It has been found that road work or repair amounts to about per mile. Once a road is started it must bo ,put In shape to avoid heavy repairs in the future. So that most all of last year's projects will need additional funds this year complete them or put the fond In j shape to prevent future damage. j "The most Important road projects i In Arizona during the past year were as follows: Coconlno and Tnsaynn forests, a road between Flagstaff and Williams (Ibis was considered by the residents of the two towns to be the most work for the.
