TUCSON. Aug. improved link in the transocntinenial high- way leading, into San Diego will be for traffic by the end of the year if ihe plans of .Nelson Daven- eoi.nty highway engineer, are carried out. The plans include a graded highway from Ajo to Gila Bend with an oiled surface road and efforts to have the highway be- tween Tucson and Ajo improved where it passes through the Indian resfrvation and Improvement of the stretches of ihe Ajo-Tucson road that are under the jurisdiction ot the county highway department, .limns (toiid Itoads The. result of these improvements will mean good roads between Tuc- son and Yuma, a stretch that has been dreaded by motorists for years, he said. It is believed (hat tin: road-building will turn tourist traf- fic away from Hassnyampa and Sa- lome to Vnma. A good road between Tucson and Yuma will he the gri atest benefit, to Pima county, according to -Mr Davemiort. From Ajo to Gila Bund, the road winds for 49 miles through the des- ert. It is classed as a road" ami ruts and stretches of soft soil make the going had for heavy cars, he pointed out. 1'iH'ty nl Work Sixteen miles of tliC' road is in Pima county, the remaining 33 miles are. in Maricopa county. Maricopa county4 officials will improve their stretch of the road, according to Mr. Dav'nport. and a surveying par- ly from the Pima county highway office is now at work laying out the new biRhway that will lead through the county. The estimated cost of the project will be approximately a mile, i-ccordlng to ilu engineer. The ex- net cost will not lie determined until the survey has been completed. Lo- cal road "men say that is a conservative estimate of the cost ot the new link ill the highway. The road b-Jtwecn Tucson and Ajo Is in bad condition now, according to Mr. Davenport, on account of the long stretch that leads through the Indian reservation. In the rainy sea- son water covers the road, and Hillr effort is made to fill in the ruts. Wnnl Federal Aid Efforts will be mad-3 to have the federal authorities repair this stretch pf road In conform with the stand- ard ?ft by the roads on cadi side of the reservation. Pimn county will grade and im- prove the road between Ajo and Tucson necessary, accord- ing to the engineer. The 01 ening of the new link will fliorten the distance to the coast considerably as the San Tlic go route is tbp shortest In miles, according to road maps nnd the new road will cut out the long loop north by way of Phoenix.

Cecil Tdte, son of W. D. Tate of the uprer Valley, was severly in- jureti Sunday afternoon near the Fortuna mine and is now in Yumu hospital slowly recovering from his injuries. Tate, in company with a party of some twenty other persons of the Valky went to Fortuna to spend the Sunday. During the afternoon a numbor of the younger folks of the crowd went to the top of a near-hy hill to flis- loclpe bou hi erg and watch them roU to the bottom of the hill. TirinR of the fun, they started down to join tlve rest of the party. Tatn slarted first. One of the boys on top of the hill threw his crow- bar, that he had used to dislodge the rncka to the bottom of the hill. In ilpscending it caught Tate on the heart imrt knocked him down. A dcop was cut. in th? young man's lioad and five of his teeth were knocked out. He was brought to members of the Italian-Al- banian boundary mission in Albania Monday. The demand, which was sent by Premier .Mussolini through the Ital- ian minister at Athens calls for the payment of the indemnity with- in five days. It also calls for rigorous inquiry at the scene of the murder to be conducted In the presence of the Italbn military attache for whose t.ersonal safety the Greeks will be held responsible.
