H. McDonald, of t h e S t a t e Highway commission of Iowa, in discussing the good roads s i t u a t i o n In Iowa. Mr. McDonald states that his office considered a graveled road when maintained to be t h e right kind of a hard road for almost all traffic conditions In Iowa outside of the immediate vicinity of cities of 15,000 I n h a b i t a n t s or upwards and t h a t when t h e so- called paved types of road a r e built near to large c i t i e s property within the city should pay a larger share of our road taxes t h a n it now does for t h e construction for t h e reason that much of t h e traffic which makes such a road necessary originates in t h e c i ty itself. E. T. Meredith, chairman of a state sub- committee, reports the result of his Investigations as to improved roads and their effect upon farm values in other states. He r e p o r t s l e t t e r s from 400 farmers living on h a r d roads in six s t a t e s . Every farmer replying to h is l e t t e r reported hard roads a good investment. Not one seemed dissatisfied. Everybody seemed to prefer his own kind of a road, whether it were graveled, concrete or brick. When averaged the 400 farmers reported t h e i r farms to have been increased in value $ 13 p e r acre by graveled roads. No one in any of the six midwestern s t a t e s suggested that tbe hard road had created burdensome taxation. These 400 farmers were asked the direct question' a s w h e t h e r they would lake the money back thfty had paid for the improved roads and go back to t he old conditions and not a single one indicated a willingness to do so. Many s t a t e s charge a portion of ( he cost of permanent road work to nearby property and the question in Iowa is important in that the main roads n a t u r a l l y will be those to be improved first and property on t h e s e roads will receive more benefit t h a n p r o p e r t y fart h e r away. D. W. N o r r i s r e p o r t s that mass meetings in t en counties in Iowa t h i s winter numbering from 200 to 600 people in a t t e n d a n c e and indorsed t h e bond plan of distributing the cost of permanent road and bridge work and t h a t boards of supervisors In many counties h a d decided to do much permanent grading and gravel construction upon t h e bond plan this year. The r e p o r t s of county engineers show that bonds to the ext e n t of over $ 1,000,000 were issued by counties in Iowa last year for bridge and road work. The $ 13 a n acre which t h e 400 farmers who wrote to Mr. Meredith found to be t h e increased value of t h e i r land after road Improvements is more than the- county road tax in t h i s s t a t e for a q u a r t e r section of land, in t h e average country, says D. W. Norris, chairman of t h e b e t t e r roads commission, after h e a r i n g Mr. Meredith's report. The average county road tax for a quarter section of land is approximately $ 9.
