DR. N. MATZEN, Secretary
Columbus, Nebr., June 21, 1911,
This letter I send to you is going to-day to every automobile owner in
Platte County, also to the county Supervisors, Mayors of the different
towns and other prominent men who we think will be interested in the Good
Numerous so called good road meetings have been held where no doubt all
intentions were good, but lacking experienca and a systematic way of secur
ing results not very much has been accomplished, but we are going to have a
meeting here in Columbus at the North Opera House Monday, June 26th, at 2
?. M. , that means something to you if you want to see better roads in Platte
Mr. D. E. Watkins of Omaha, Secretary of Nebraska State Automobile
Association, will be with us and explain to you Just what method we shall
follow to get results. At this meeting all car owners will be asked to Join
the Columbus Automobile Club, which in turn will be affiliated with the
State Association as well as the American Automobile Association. The
National Association assisted by every state association have started a
National road movement, which you no doubt realize cannot be a howling suc
cess without the assistance of the local clubs in whose locality they are
working. 12 counties in the state of Nebraska have been organized by Mr.
Watkins Who is to continue this work until every county in the state has"
At this Columbus meeting he wants to organise Platte County, and we
have promised him a good attendance of good Road Boosters from all over the
County, and we want you to attend this meeting. Do you know that every
year the Automobile owners of Platte County will pay into the Good Road
funds more than twice as much money as it "will require lo drag two trans
Our idea first is to lay out a road running from the East to the West
county line, and one running from the North to the South county line and
then extend this until all leading roads of the county are included. ' Mr.
Watkins will go into details of this movement at this meeting, and I assure
you that his plans are very practical. We don't ask for any subscription
our license fees and county road funds are sufficient. We have the money
he has the plan. Now, come to this meeting, and let us get together and
make Platte County roads as good as the best.
Don't lay this letter aside and leave it to some one else, come your
self, and bring some one with you if you are interested in Good Roads and
really want them. Now, is the proper time to act, it makes no difference
whether you are an automobile owner or not ; whether you are a farmar or a
merchant, good roads mean much to all of us, and understand this this
movement is not for the benefit of Columbus but for Platte County the
North as well as the South, so come and represent your vicinity, and get
your share. "
Very respectfully yours,
