position to know.
The United States District For
ester's office ha* received an allot
ment of $22,380.29. which Is ten
per cent of the national forest rev
enue collected In Oregon. The en
tire sum is to be expended on wagon
roads In government forests of Ore
gon. Some of the new roads will
open country which heretofore has
been practically untraveraed.
Five thousand dollars of this
sum will be used to Improve the
McKenzie wagon road, one of the
four roads connecting the eastern
and western parts of the state. The
McKenzie road is one of the most
perilous In the state, several lives
having been lost on it. Last year
I $1,250 was spent on It.
This is the second year an ap
propriation for such purpose ha»
been made by the government, and
federal officials predict that within
the next few years, when the de
mand for timber in the national for
ests increases, the appropriation
easily will reach the $100,000 mark
The following other roads or
routes will also be improved as the
result of the allotment:
Cove - Mlnam.
Prlnevllle - Mitchell.
Gates-Portsvllle, Cape I’erpetua. l*-h

postoffice eastward), Rock Crock-

them so that they will represent a
