A delegation of residents from

Abiqua Falls appeared before
the county court yesterday after
noon to request that two more
miles of county road be con

road, with two miles off the main
road already authorized but n'ot
yet under construction, would
lead virtually up to the falls, and
would open up another scenic
grounds for the county.
Abiqua-Falls, with its approxi
mately 98 feet of drop, is a nicer
waterfall than the -Silver Creek
Falls, according to members of
the delegation. Development of
roads leading to the falls was
strongly urged by the group. The
court made no comment on the
proposal, simply taking it under
advisement. Steve Korb and
James Cully, the latter road pa
trolman, and two other men
from Crooked Finger were In the

The proposed road would be
simply an extension of the two
