If the motorist it blessed with a
constitution sufficiently robuwst to
withstand the road shocks between
Canby and Aurora he will find the
drive to the state's metropolis oth
erwise pleasant, the east aide high
way being ' hard-surfaced with the
exception mentioned and a abort dis
tance outside of Salem.
The writer covered this portion of
the Pacif highway last Lord's day in
a sedan, following the course through
New Era. Oregon City and Sellwood,
getting our rubber wet only at the
points named. The worst stretch is
through the hamlet of Barlow,
which is not only exceedingly rough
but muddy as well.
Between Canby and Aurora a saw
survey has been made along the
railroad track, but will not be opened
to travel until paved. The old high
way has had no attention and is
badly raveled. The new highway
will shorten the route somewhat,
eliminate grades and dangerous rail
But under present conditions, from
Salem to Portland la an easy three
hour drive, and this route may be
recommended to motorists aa a pleas
ant winter inp.
The greatest impetus ever known
in the history of highway construc
tion In the United States Is planned
for 11920. daring wnlch twelve
month approximately 1100,000,000
will be expended in. roadbullding.
Road construction In Oregon dur
ing the year 1920 will be benefitted
to the extent of approximately 2.
670.000 as a result of revenue de
rived by the) atate rrom motor ve
hicle licenses and the statutory tax
on gasoline and other oils, according
to a report prepared today by Sam
A. Kozer. assistant secretary of
state. Based on the motor vehicle
registration thua far this year and
the estimated Increase in the nam-!
ber of automobiles and other motor
driven vehicles lor the remaining
eight months of 1920, Mr. Koser be
lieves there will be received from
these licenses prior to January .1,
1921. the sum of $2,250,900.
After paying the administration
expenses, which It is estimated will
not exceed 3 vet cent of the total or
about $67,000. there will be a total
of $2,183,500 available for the high
way funds. Of the total amount re
ceived in licenses, after deducting
the administration costs, one-fourth
will go to the countie of the state
while the remaining threexfourUs
will be turned Into the state road
All of this money, however, regard
less of whether It la apportioned to
the counties or state mast be -used
for highway construction. - In addi
tion to $2,182,500 to be made avail
able for road work through revenue
received from license it Is estimated
by Mr. Kozer that the state will re
ceive no less than $475,000 from
taxes on the sale of gasoline and oth
er oils. This money will also go in
.to the road funds and wlll.be ex
pended under the direction of the
state highway department.
