Legislative interest seems to be entering on the question of Good roads. The lits an old. Old subject in Iowa for it has been one of the leading subject in the Hawkeye legislature for a decade and it has become very much accentuated by the Genera use of the automobiles and the increasing Usa of trucks. Almost every legislator who has made any expression of his View thus far. Either in the pres or in Public addresses or otherwise a said something about the Road ques lion As a coming Legi Lativs problem the have been a few definite measures proposed but for the most pan the scions have no definite program the most of them Are deeply interested in Good roads and while prejudice or personal interest is evident her and there the feeling is considered More wholesome and sane than at any previous time. Two years ago there was bitterness in the Road fight much to the regret of the Best men in both factions anti it tinged All legislative action thru out the session its origin in disgruntled county supervisors in various nests in the state who resented and recoiled against the authority Given the state Highway commission by the thirty sixth Assembly Over much of the Road work. Much propaganda was in evidence against the state commission in the years intervening How Ever the Highway commission has proved its efficiency and the bitterness has largely disappeared. Hence the Road question will but approached this coming session with a better feeling All around than a the Case two yearn ago. It is problematical whether at the end of the session there will have been much advancement in legislative achievement toward better roads but improvements in Iowa. Like every other sort of improvement promises to be gradual. Representative Nebl Kerr a proposal for seventeen paved highways across the state costing 150,000.000, to be paid for through Bond is generally looked upon As far too big an undertaking. The roads committee of the greater Iowa association has announced it favors the Florida plan for Road improvement which provides for letting the contract for a specified improvement subject to the approval of the voters of the county Intel ested. A. L. Champlin a recognized auth Highway he is helping pay for the Roadway Over which the new yorker drives his High powered automobile and getting very Little us out of it. I done to believe he is going to stand for it. Quot to make a Concrete Road connecting All highways and put a hard surface Over All roads in Iowa would a too expensive an undertaking. It would be a Fine thing. I am heartily in favor of Good roads but Concrete roads is too big an undertaking then if we do get them the Upkeep would be great. Present Road Laws would have to be revised to provide for their or. Champlin disagrees with the state Highway commission in that he believes the Laten Type Bridge the kind which lies a wreck in Squaw Creek today is us Good a Bridge a any constructed provided they Art constructed right.
