Summer. Touring This Season Will

in Speaking of Year's Conditions
That the dummer of 1921 will
ee an unprecedented amount of
crow-country touring Is a deduc
tion mad from the report of
motor club, rdute bureaus, news-1
papers and similar sources of in
formation on this crowing Amer
ican pastime. One conservative
eastern automobile authority ven
tures the opinion that more coin
will be expanded In gasoline, tires,
oil. meals and hotel accommoda
tions by the 1921 tourists than
will be paid at tbe box offices of
the major league ball parks dur
ing the regular season, which Is
a good Indication of how popular
cross-country motoring has be
come. While some mieht regard this
expenditure as extravagant to be
charged up to pleasure, a more
sensible viewpoint is taken by
Vick Hrothars, local Oakland rep
resentatives. "It must be remembered that
practically all of these trips are
vacation excursions." says Charles
Vick. "and you certainly can't
charge up vacations as extrava
gance. The man who hits the
open road in a passenger car is
availing himself of broadening

WASHINGTON, April 23
"Concentration of federal aid
money upon the most important
state roaus which have an inter
state character, is the next logical
step in cooperation with tfie sv
eral states in highways improve
ment." is the assertion of Senator
Charles K. Townsend, chairman
of the senate committee on post
offices and post roads.
Harding Is Quoted
"That congress undoubtedly
will give comprehensive attention
to tbe good roads subject In the
present session is predicted by the
quite exact reference set rorth in
President Harding's message.
That the federal agency of ad
ministration should be elevated
to the importance and vested with
authority comparable to he work!

is certain to meet with general
approval from those who have
truly at heart consistent ' good

Federal lloard Ioswble
"Money from the national
treasury expended in cooperation
with the states properly calls for
state and not county dollars, and
the joint funds should have to do
with the most important highways
possessing both intrastate and in
terstate significance. It is my
thought that at a later day, when
a federal commission or board
will have decided upon a nation
wide plan of Interstate thorough
fares, these great highways shsli
become a federal obligation.
"In state after state we have
progressed from state aid to the
counties, to state systems of inter-county
highways and we are
now seeking a form of federal aid

ward Interstate highways which
