Federal Survey

Roads Deficient
SAVANNAH. Ga, May 14
Oregon's deficient highways were
cited by Deguty Commissioner J.
S. Bright of the-public roods ad
ministrator. Washington. D.C. to
day as one of the arresting reasons
why the United States must spend
$47 billions over a 10-year period
to meet the nation's existing trans
portation needs.
Bright told the American Road
Builders' association that surveys
made in eight states disclosed that
this group alone had highway de
ficienies needing immediate cor
rection in the amount of $6,627.

ton. At Legislatures' Request
He emphasized that the surveys
were made at the regxiest of state
legislatures or the executive de
partments of state governments.
If the pattern of deficiency found
in 17 states holds true in the re
mainder of the 43 states, "the es
timated cost of correcting all the
highway deficiencies over a period
of 10 rears would be at least $47,
000.000.000." he said.
This means "that the rate of
highway construction expenditures
should be double the 1948 rate to
meet highway transportation
needs." he went on. In 1948, the
$1,569,000,000 which was spent by
all states, counties and cities on
highway construction work
amounted only to one-half the
sum President Truman suggested
as necessary in his economic re
port to congress in January of this
Deficiencies Brought to Light
Deficiencies brought to light by
the state surveys. Mr. Bright said,
occur as follows: 55 per cent of
state highway mileage. 49 per cent
of county and local mileage, and
41 per cent of city streets need
immediate and considerable at
tention. State highways, while
they constitute only 10 per cent
of the nation's entire mileage,
carry 38 per cent of all traffic;
secondary and local roads, com
prising 81 per cent of the total
mileage, carry only 12 per cent;
and city streets, constituting only
9 per cent of the total mileage,
bear 50 per cent of all traffic.
"Improvements made a quarter
of a century ago. and now obsolete
because of traffic growth, hae
lung since paid for themselves,"
Mr. Bright pointed out. He urged
a better public understanding of
the ratio between the cost of high
ways and the cost of highway
transportation. Saving by restrict - '
ing expenditures in building is lost
through excessive vehicle operat
ing costs," he explained.

Root of Trouble
One of the conditions in which :
inflammation of the thyroid gland '
occurs is known as subacute thy-j

that an infection with a virus j
may be at the root of the trouble, j
Symptoms include pain and ten-

gland is struma lymphomatosa. In '
this condition, the entire thyioii
gland is usually involved. The
disease starts gradually and again
produces symptoms much like
those in toxic goiter. The thyroid
gland itself feels firm. This dis
order also is treated with X-'-ay.
If X-ray treatments do not caue
the condition to subside, an opera
tion is performed and a portion of
the thyroid gland removed.
Affects One Side
Still another type of thyroii
eland inflammation is called Rie
del's struma. This usually affects
only one side of the thyroid gland,
causing hard swellings. The gland
is usually fastened to the sur
rounding tissues. In most cases,
