The public highways committee of
the Chamber of Commerce is co
operating with, a joint committee
composed of representatives of the
Automobile club, Rotary club. Auto
Liak-rs association and others to de
vise ways and means for effecting
public improvements during 1921.
It was through the efforts of this
joint committee that approval was
given a $3,000,000 bond issue for road
improvementwork in Douglas coun
ty. The committee has exercised
the policy of "going slow" during
the flatter part of the year "because
of extremely high prices for mater
ials. With some of the material
prices already on the decline and
others about to come down, the com
mittee is now ready to recommend
that contracts for the work be
awarded at an early date. -- Members
of the committee express the desire
,that definite action on the fbad buill
