For some time Dast there have leen more or less rumors afloat that we need not expect a better condi tion of the Washington Highway passing through Sarpy county, ow ing to the fact that-the state and federal road aids would do nothing to a highway leading tip to a toll bridge. This has been the means of casting considerable gloom over the Omaha travel uassine this way. for it is true that the road has been in a verv poor condition this spring with very little care taken in the war maintenance. From out of the darkness now comes a gleam of light, a will he seen by the two following communications received from the I State Engineer's office, one to Mr I'oHock of this city and the other ad- j dressed to the Secretary of the Onia I ha Automobile Club: Omaha. Neb., Ma 29th. 1920. Mr. T. H. Pollock. Plattsmouth. Nebraska. Dear Mr. Pollock: U'j enclose you herewith copy of letter just received from Mr. Geo. E.

Re: Washington Highwa: Dear Sir: In answer to your letter of the ISfh i list . regarding the above high wya south from Omaha. I have in structed the Division Engineer to take this matter up with the County Highway Commissioner and see that this road is put in proper condition and also properly maintained. The reason that the heavy grad ing crew was taken off the road was due to the fact that we expected to award contract to reduce the grades the entire length of the road in Sarpy county, but owing to the pres ent price and also to the fact that it will be necessary to isue state war rants and register the same. I do not believe we will award the contract on this work this season. However, the same is in line and will lie con tracted along with the first contracts let by this department. In the meantime, will see that the road is properly taken care of. Yours truly, GEO? E. JOHNSON (Signed) , "State Engineer. Lincoln. Neb., June 7, 1920. Mr. T. H. Pollock, Plattsmouth, Neb. Re: Maintenance, Washington, Highway Dear Sir: Your letter of May 31st to Mr. Johnson has been referred to me for answer and in reply will say: That the County Highway Com missioner has been instructed to Dru???st Box ftKgiiMiililalr lD TO-NIGHT- IVI Tomorrow Alright F. G. FRICKE & CO. place the heavy blade grader outfit back on the Washington Highway and fix it up in first Tlass shape, and then put a patrol gang on it to keep it in that condition. Owing to the fact that Sarpy county has but very little money in her Maintenance Fund, difficulties have arisen in the proper mainten ance of roads. However, we think this will not occur again In the fu ture, and that this Washington High way will be in such shape that travel can go over it without much trouble Trusting that it is satisfactory, am Yours verv trulv, P. W. CLANCY, Division Engineer. Th heavy blade grader outfit spoken of in the letter to Mr. Pol lock is now at work on this road. and every assurance Is given that the crew will remain at work until the road is placed in proper condi tion right up to the bridge, which is certainly good news to all. There never was a time when the road leading from Plattsmouth to the Platta river bridge was in such excellent condition as now. County Highway Commissioner Yallery has sure been getting in some excellent work on this side, and we will all hail the day when we can say as much for the Sarpy county commis sioner, which we trust will only be matter of few davs. COURT HOUSE HAPPENINGS ! a straw hat.
