franchises or nance and operation of electric transmission lines over or across any rural public highway But he said a later statute en acted in 1955 establishes the Highway Commissions authority to set up controlledaccess high ways and gives it complete juris diction over them N ews in a nutshell FROM OUR WIRE SERVICES Ballots counted at Vatican VATICAN than 2700 ecumenical council fathers cast
