Highway Board
Pallas, Or., June 28. The suit
by residents of Independence
against the state highway commis
sion.' attempting to compel the
commission to pat the high .cay
through Independence, which was
recently filed, stated as one of the
reasons for objecting to the con
tract entered int between the
Polk county court and the high
way commisison that $43,000 of
the market road fund was to be
contributed in laying the road bed
of the highway south of ifom
mouth. This was further empfia'
sized yesterday when a supple
mental complaint was filed by At
torney I). E. Fletcher of Independ
ence in behalf of the plaintiffs.
A few days before the suit was
filed In the court the Polk county
court instructed the county clerk
to draw a warrant In favor of the
state highway commission for
$43,000 and charge the same
against the market road fund.
This was done to bind the contrac
between the two bodies. The sup
plemental complaint alleges that
the county clerk and the defend
ants had notice that the complaint
had been filed and that the said
county paid and caused to be paid
to the members of the state high
way commission the sum of $43,
000, which payment was void.
They demand that the court shall
issue a mandatory injunction, di
rected to the state highway com
mission, to repay the county of
Polk the sura of $43,000; and that
the same be received by the county
treasurer and placed in the mar
ket road fund; and, if the commis
sion fails to do so, that a judg
ment should be entered in favor of
the county against the state high
way commission.
In discussing the situation with
Attorney D. E. Fletcher of Inde
pendence, he made the assertion
that the only way that the courts
could possibly uphold the high
way commission and not grant the
relief asked for by the plaintiffs
In the suit was to Ignore the law;
and that he was confident that the
courts would uphold the law
which is so definite upon the loca
tion of the West Side highway
through Polk county, that inde
pendence would get the highway
as outlined by the legislature.

I ouoiit to Know:
I grow tobacco
You can't beat a Camel, because you can't beat the
tobacco that goes into Camels.
That's why Camels are the choice of men who
know and love fine tobacco. They know what makes
Camels so smooth, so fragrant and mellow-mild.
They'll tell you that the expert Camel blend of
choice Turkish and Domestic tobaccos makes a ciga
rette smoke you can't equal no matter what you pay.
But it doesn't take an expert to tell Camel quality.
You'll spot it the very first puff. Try Camels yourself.
