measure. At a meeting in the Cham
ber of Commerce rooms; C. H. Shields,
of the Washington State Good Roads
association, explained provisions of
the bill and pointed out benefits
which would accrue from Its passage.
One reason for the measure's pop

vision made for construction within
six years of a highway circling the
Olympic peninsula, extending from
Aberdeen to Shelton. thence to Port
Angeles, and thence down the coast
line, through the Hoah, Clearwater,
Queets and Qulnault valleys to Hoquiam.

Mr. Hays said ho also would favor
disseminating the text of reserva

Mr. Hays' letter in part, follows:
"To acquaint the voters of the
country with the truth about the
Wilson league of nations has been the
earnest effort of the republican or
ganization ever since the adminis

kept the country from knowing any
thing about the development of the

gjad to do anything further possible,
with you or separately, as we are
doing, to that end.
"May I further suggest that we
make an effort In some way to ascer
tain and advise the country just
what the president promised Europe
that this country would do, which
may not be in. the text of the cove
nant. Won't you find out just what
this was, and let us give that to the
country, also. Governor Cox has
promised to make good these pledges
whatever they may be."
