NOW RIGHT NOW
Highway Commission Decides
on Bond and Personal Guar
v antee Under Bond Issue.
THE MORNING OREGONIAN, WEDNESDAY, JULY 11, 1917.
MATCH MONEY IS ASKED
State Board Is Requested to Raise
$400,000 for Co-operation,
y VTltli Government In
All of the pavement to be laid under
the $6,000,000 road bond bill must be
covered by a five-year maintenance
bond and must carry an extra guaran
tee of a personal bond for an addi
tional five-year period, according to a
decision reached by the members of
the State Highway Commission at two
extended business sessions in the office
of Chairman Benson yesterday.
The Commission adopted a resolution
requesting the State. Board, of Control
to Issue bonds under the Bean-Barrett
act to the extent of $400,000 to be used
In co-operation with the Federal Gov
ernment under the terms of the
Bhackleford bill and authorized the
Issuance of $500,000 bonds out of the
16,000,000 fund, bids covering which
are to be advertised for at the time
the Board of Control launches Its bond
Tillamook Work to Proceed.
Answering a point raised by C. "W.
Fulton, who appeared on behalf of
Tillamook County, the commission de
cided that Tillamook County could go
ahead this year with the pavement of
20 miles on the road between Tilla
mook and McMlnnville with the under
standing that the state would not pay
Its share of the expense until next
year's funds are availabe.
Senator Fulton explained that the
Tillamook County authorities are
anxious to pay for a wider, deeper, more
expensive pavement than that contem
plated by the State Highway Commis
sion, and asked that the available state
money be applied toward the cost. The
plans and specifications governing the
work are to be approved by the State
On the basis of spending $10,000 a
mile for the pavement, the state would
spend probably $200,000 on this road,
and Senator Fulton estimated that the
Tillamook County officials contem
plated the expenditure of perhaps $300,
00. For the reason that all of this
year's funds have been allotted. It
would be impossible for the Commis
sion to share the expense of paving
the road under this year's budget, and
by means of yesterday's arrangement
the work call be done at once, the coun
ty financing the improvement entirely
until next year.
Advertising Is Ordered.
The Commission Instructed State
Hlehwav Engineer Nunn to advertise
Sot the grading and preparation for
pavement of the Lower Columbia River
Highway from Astoria to me western
Multnomah County line and from the
Eastern Multnomah County line on the
main Columbia River Highway to the
Wasco County line beyond Hood tiver.
TVi estimated cost of this work Is
Engineer Nunn also was Instructed
to have three miles of road along the
Klsklvou Highway below Ashland
macadamized for a width of eight feet
outside the pavement, which is now
laid for an eight-foot width, and to
fret a survey of the route between
Woodburn and Mount Angel, In Marion
County, so that the Commission will be
able to determine whether or not to
change the course of the highway In
Delegation Gets Hearlnc
A delegation of 21 from Arlington,
as well as Judge Parman and Sidney
Smith, roadmaster of Gilliam County,
who appeared to inquire as to the loca
tion of the Columbia River Highway
extension, was told by the Commission
to submit the highway programme that
is being framed In their districts so
that the Commission will have some
thing definite to work on.
When the question of running the
Lower Columbia River Highway
through St. Helens or keeping It to
the west, thereby avoiding the railroad
tracks, came up yesterday morning for
discussion. Chairman Benson and W.
L. Thompson, of Pendleton, one of the
Commissioners, engaged in a rather
warm debate, during which Mr. Benson
accused the other members of the Com
mission of "playing politics." No ac
tion was taken in the matter and the
afternoon eession ran off without any
recurrence of feeling. Chairman Ben
son is not in favor of running the high
way through St. Helens.
Commission Leaves Today.
The entire Commission will leave
Portland today for a tour through Polk
and Yamhill counties in the hope of
ascertaining whether the regular high
way should lead from Newberg to Mc
Mlnnville via Dayton or via Lafayette,
and to study general highway condi
tions. The next formal meeting of the com
mission will be held in the office of
Chairman Benson In Portland on July
20. at which time bids will be received
for the grading and paving of nine
miles along the Lower Columbia River
Highway between Astoria and Svenson,
15 miles between the Multnomah line
and Newberg through the Rex-Tigard
stretch, 10 miles across the boundary
line between Clackamas and Marion
counties, five miles on each side, six
and one-half miles of concrete on the
Pacific Highway just this side of Call
fornia and one mile near Sheridan.
The Commissioners conferred with
Dr. L. I. Hewes. B. J. Finch and Fo
ester Cecil, representatives of the
Government, in the plans for the con
ctruction of post and forest roads in
Oregon, who reported on surveys that
are now being made by the Govern
A representative of the labor unions
appeared before the commission to urge
that union men be employed in the
roller work carried on by the commis
sion. Without taking any action, the
commission explained that there would
be little roller work to do and that the
union scale of wages Is being paid on
the work now in progress.

MILING GEORGE" WALSH and
"Doug" Fairbanks, the "sun

at the Peoples Theater Monday night.
It was their first meeting for more
than a year. "Doug" was on the screen
in "Wild and Woolly," that burlesque
melodramatic thriller; George was
present in person.
"I. too, believe in the joyous type
of film entertainment the picture of
laughs and thrills but Fairbanks was
presenting this kind of photoplay be
fore I could persuade my people to
give me a chance. The result Is that
some people accuse me of copying his
stuff; hence my failure to be a regular
at Fairbanks' shows," was Walsh's
comment on a situation that is occa
sioning much talk in player and fan
The difference between Fairbanks
and Walsh Is that George has always
been an athlete while "Doug" is an
athletic product of maturity. Walsh
was a football, baseball, track and row
ing star, as well as boxing champion
at Fordham College and Georgetown
University. Fairbanks recognized the
Dersonal value of athletics as a devel
oper of brain and brawn, also the dol
lars -and cents angle as expressed by
public approval, and today he is the
personification of aggressive, tireless,
sunny, optimistic Americanism.

chosen as his leading woman for "The

is a timely one, revolving around the
efforts of a Japanese legation attache
to secure the highly Important plans
