By Ha S. Grant
Bulletin Staff Writer
The tri-county area of Central
Oregon has an outstanding road
system, built by far-sighted men
with visions into the future. Des
chutes, Crook and Jefferson coun
ties have long-range plans to take
advantage of federal state aid
match money as long as it is
available for federal aid second
ary highway construction, at the
same time continuing their own
county programs, improving main
and secondary roads.
The counties have cooperated,
one with another, and have had
excellent cooperation with the U.
S. Forest Service and the Bureau
of Public Roads.
Jefferson county's road system
really came to life in November.
1954, with the purchase of a com
plete rock crushing plant.
"We have some fine equipment
and a very efficient road crew,
capable of giving the people any
typo of road they care to pay for,"
said County Judge H. A. Dus
sault. "In the period from Jan. 1,
1C3. to Dec. 31, 19GI. we have
operated on road budgets from
$103,000 to $202,200. We are one
county in the state that must vote
on our budget every year on ac
count of our tax base and the six
per cent limitation."
15 Milet of Road
Crook county, according to
Judge Ervin L. Grimes, has plans
for oiling 15 miles of roads in the
next year, and for continuing in
state-federal-aid projects.
Deschutes county plans to con
centrate on improvement of for
est access county roads. "In
keeping with a new policy," said
Judge D. L. Penhollow, "we plan
to construct all such roads to an
0-11 base, in order that logging
will not be hampered on our for
est roads."
Jefferson county has 60.08 miles
of paved county roads, 290 miles
of graded and graveled county
roads, 00 miles of stale highway
and 498 miles of federal roads on
the Warm Springs Indian Reser

reservation, 100 miles are graded,
drained and graveled. A contract
calls for about 25 miles of paving
on the reservation this summer.
In the past five years, Jeffer
son county has constructed 18.8
miles of new county roads, recon
structed 104.4 miles and oiled 19.
40 miles with county funds. Federal-aid
roads oiled by state con
tract totaled 33.08 miles, and 27.02
miles of abandoned state high
ways were turned over to the
county as county roads. One
bridge was built.
The Jefferson county road de
partment had 20 employes in Jan
uary this year, showing a steady
increase from 10 in 1930 and 17
in 1935.

ly 600 miles of county roads, 60
miles of the total paved. There
are 169 miles of state highway.

county has built 30 miles of new
roads, sealed 20 miles and oiled

miles of paved county roads, 238.
91 miles of graded and graveled
roads, and 184.96 unimproved.

structed, 198.38 miles were seal
ed, and 38.61 miles were oiled
with county funds. Federal - aid
roads oiled by state contract to
taled 92.70 miles. Thirty eight
bridges were built.
The road crew numbered 36 in
January this year, increasing
from 23 in 1930 and 30 in 1935.
Visitors to Central Oregon often
comment on the excellent roads in
the area. And the best way to ap
preciate them is to take a long
molor trip, local residents say.
Back home in Central Oregon,
most vacationers realize they nev
er had it so good.
Not only ore the roads in good
condition, for the most part, but
they lead to something that's
worth seeing. That's why mor
and more out-of-state tourists are
discovering Central Oregon, and
its recreation facilities and
breath-taking scenery.

Too bad we couldn't get a picture of Mrs. Ped

Disappointed? Don't be. Because ever since we
began serving the bakery needs of Central Ore
gon, 14 years ago, we have always been guided
by the spirit of home-baked quality which the
name "Mrs. Pedersen" has come to mean.
In the beginning it was just donuts. Now we
produce a wide line of breads and pastries. But
every product still has to meet the rigid re
quirements set by our demanding boss Mrs.
