A manager will be employed and speakers will be brought to Salem to the county to deliver addresses and to tell or the work done by other states and coun ties. The impression was general with those in attendance that the reeling toward the bond Issue Is much more favorable than the conditions which existed In 1914 and 1917 when Sa lem voted against similar measures. This Is .held due to improved con dltlons, to education, and to a real! cation that the roads are a business proposition Instead or a luxury for tourists. xsumerous brief speeches were made, all being of an optimistic trend and all bearing the assurance ot co-epe ration.
