WASHINGTON April 30 j Otlnmn It PATHLESS BUT NOT A WILDERNESS FROM AN IOWA STATE HIGHWAY COMMISSION MAP Iowa never was o wilderness using the word in the sense of o wild land that is waste for always it has been a region of abundance But once it was wilderness in that it was pathless And to the eager traveler pushing painfully along her earlier trails Iowa was still almost wilderness for there were no roads as we think of roads today But as in Biblical days there came a voice crying in the wilderness which the state then was and saying as in the Gospel according to St Luke Every valley shall be filled and every mountain and hill shall be brought low and the crooked shall be made straight and the rough ways shall be made The voice this time was the voice of progress and of civi lization Being provident Iowa took the demands in natural se quence Cutting down the hills she used the materials thus displaced to fill the valleys and she discovered that the glaciers which hod built the hills had buried in some of them the materials with which to surface the leveled road and to make it smooth Gravel surfaced highways graded for all the centuries to come succeeded the mud roads which when wet were only too gripping evidence of the fertility of the fields between which they lay The path that had become a rood had then evolved into a highway But the voice was not yet stilled and in response ro its further urging Iowa continued to straighten and to make smooth and from the primitive path that once wound a me andering course from place to place developed a magnificent state system of paved traffic carriers that now are boulevards dependable comfortable economic and vital avenues of com munication and system to which the state invites the traveler with pride and satisfaction Hoover justice department nvestigative chief said kidnaping if June Roblcs at Tucson had been He refused to amplify the state ment beyond explaining that gov rnment agents now
