Truck Loads and
Speed Should be
The people of the state of Oiegon
can never hope to have good, sub
stantial hard surface highways for
the use of pleasure cars and erhur
traffic so long as huge trucks are per
nutted to haul heavy loads at exces
sive speeds over them. This statement
was made by Herbert Nunn, state
highway engineer, speaking before
the business nwn of the city at the
regular weekly luncheon in the Com
merciaUslub Monday noon.
Highway engineers, realizing these
facts, have prepared to take the mat
ter up and deal with it at length at
the next session of legislature. , Ir.
Nunn said. Until something is done
to prevent ; large trucks hauling
weighty loads on the highways it will
be impossible to "make permanent
highways "unless you want to spend
4500 Oto 110,000 a mile for high
ways as is being done in Pennsylva
nia. And the. people of this state can
never stand that rate of cost."
Highway Work Limited
Mr. Nunn said that the highw.iy
between Canby and Aurora, a distance
of about four miles, will not be' paved
this summer. Much interest is center-.
ed on this'stfetch of the highway be- j
cause it is the main drive between
Salem and Portland. Work is pro
gressing well on the Pacific highway
between Salem and Brooks, and will
be finished on schedule time, whicn
is August, Mr. Nunn told the business
men. ' ' ; : . ,
The Dallas;Saiem road will also be
completed this -season. Its cost will
be 350,000 Mr. Nunn said.
A total of J924,0a0 will have been
spent by the state highway commis
sion in Marion county for roadwork
by the end of the present season, the
state engineer said. .
. Much Wort Being Done
In the state there are 1866 lineal
miles of road being improved. This jk
f divided as follows: pavement, 430
miles, macadam 448, and grade 9SS.
Money being expended on this work
.totals more than $25,300,000, Mr.
Ill this state there is $1,400,000 of
federal funqs available for road work,
and $2,000,000 ia .Blade available each
year by gasoline and auto taxes In
Impetus to the road work in the
state has been lent by the govern
ment giving great quantities of T. N.
T., 250 trucks, 30 autos, 38 tractors
and much other material Invaluable
in highway making. Mr. Nunn said.
Many bridges are being made in the.
state this season, Mr. Nunn said; and
their structure is permanently insur
ed because of the fact thai only con
crete is being used.
No more than five percent of the
highways in the state can be paved,
the engineer said. Fund restrictions
make this Imperative, the state being
unable to pay for more highway im
provement of the variety that is now 1
being made. ' "",

Montana School -System
Best of States
New Tork, May 24. The- state of
Montana has the best all-round public
school system in the United States, ac
cording to the results of a compara
tively study of state school systems
made public today by the Russell Sage
Foundation. The report asigns sec
ond place to the schools of California,
third place to those of Arijona, fourm
to New Jersey and fifth to the state Of
Washington.--,-:'; V; ;'V-jSi,
These finds are contained in a report
by the department of education of the
foundation. The, volume is entitled
"An Index Number for State School
Systems" and the author is Dr. Leon
ard P.. Ay rest -director of the Founda
tion's department of education.
Other findings of the report are that
the school system of the United States
as a whole has doubled in efficiency
during the last 50 years, having an in
dex number or rating of 26.1n 1870 and
one of 52 at the present time. Since
these index numbers are figured on the
basis of 100, the school system of the
country has now an effectiveness or ef
ficiency of only 52 per cent, according
to the report.
The figures for the individual states
as given by the Foundation show that
during the past 30 years the west has
been coming up educationally while
the east has been going down. Dur
ing this time the greatest increase
among all the Btates has been made
by L'tah while the state to which is at
tributed the greatest falling off in rela
tive standing is Maryland. In the east
the only tate that has gained instead
of losing is New Jersey. In the west
the state that, has- the best and most
consistently high record is California.
Among the interesting results of the j
study is the conclusion that the school
system of the I'nited States territorial!
possessions, such as Hawaii, the canal .
zone, and Porto Rico, have higher rat-!
ings than those of many , of the 48 :
states. That of Hawaii is reported bet- i
ter than those of the majprity of the
American states. Ten southern states
have records poorer than that of Por
