FEDERAL ROAD BUILDING AID
Highway Construction Hampered by
Transportation Difficulties and
Lack of Material.
In addition to $19,000,000 for forest
road construction, congress has made
available to July 1, 11120, the sum of
$275,000,000 for federal aid roads. Of

The difficulties of transportation, ,
the luck of materials, the Insulllclent
number of contracting organizations,
the scarcity of adequate equipment
ind the general shortage of engineer
ing personnel In connection with high
way construction during the past two
years have reduced road building ac
tivities to ntiout 3-7 of the full pro

MAINTENANCE OF DIRT ROAD
Essential That No Water Be Permitted
to Remain on Surface Repair
To maintain an earth road so that
It will adequately take care of heavy
trallle It Is essential first that no wa
ter lie nllowed to stand on the road
surface or In the ditches, nnil second
ly that defects occurring In the sur
face he repaired Immediately and In
a manner that will form a crust sutll
clent to maintain the loads and 'resist
the wear caused by trallle.
The first can he accomplished only
by grading and draining the road In n
milliner that will permit water to drain
quickly from the surface after every
rain, anil the second by adding clay
and sand In the proper proportions as
required, shaping up the surface with
a light grader, and keeping the trav
eled surface smooth and even with the
rond planer, after which the earth sur
face eventually becomes smooth and
Impervious to water. The result Is an
extremely satisfactory road ot a very
low cost to the public.
SAVE KANSAS MANY DOLLARS
Engineering Experiment Station Tests
All Materials to Be Used In
The road mnterlals laboratory of the
Kansas engineering experiment sta
tion Is In charge of the testing of all
materials for use on federal aid roads
In the state of Kansas. Moro than 75
car loads of defective cement and
bricks submitted for test In the past
year have been rejected, thus saving
the state many thousands of dollars.
FINANCING SYSTEM OF ROADS
Proper Procedure of County or Dis
trict Is Matter Open for Much
Just how a county or district should
proceed to finance a system of roads
Is a matter open for discussion. It
depends- upon how, rapidly they need
them and upon how well they are able
to pay. In other words on their val
uation and the cost of tho work contemplated.
Crown for Earth Roads.
Well maintained earth roads need
very little crown. The wider and flat

A trip through the wheat Holds of

traverses the mountain areas of
Canada, rich In the variety of color

wonderful In their magnitude, Ibelr

streams that flow from their sides

we rest beside the Inkes In the clnuds

want Is to dwell upon the Scene. But
It was not the Intention to speak of
mountain scenery, roaring torrents,
placid Inkes, and restful haunts.
Untlicr, we were about to speak of the
other kind of Inspiration that Is
aroused as one traverses Western
Canada's Immense plains, grldlroned
with railroads and splendid highways,
along whose borders and pway hack
are to he seen the most wonderful
grain fields. The crops of wheat, oats,
barley, llax, and corn yes. corn hao

elilnes are hli'sy, the elevators are
ready the thirty and forty thousand
bushel elevators, with three, four, and
live and more at nearly every station
along the thousand miles of rnllwn.Vt
that serve this Immense new nren of
agricultural land. There Is not a more
inspiring sight than these grain fields.
They lend onu to pause and reflect,
get one Into a mental arithmetic
strain, and the mind wanders us It
gothers the great length of figures that
represents the Western Canada grain
crop of 1020. A pencil and paper
are needed, for the value will run Into
and over n billion dollars. At least,
that Is what those who profess to keep
themselves posted as to values
The wheat crop alone will run over
250.000.000 bushels, nnd If you figure
,thls at $2.80 pur bushel; the price It Is
selling at as wo write, there you have
$700,000,000 alone. Then there Is the
oat crop, with a yield of one hesitates
to say the quantities in bushels, for
the threshors are reporting yields of
110 and 120 bushels per acre, where
but NO and 00 bushels were expected,
but their value, apart from that of
barley and rye and flax, will carry
us over the billion dollar mark.
