WHY vE SHOULD VOTE FOR THE GOOD ROADS B0I3 ISSUE
1 Because the people as a whole want Good Roads.
2 Because what the people want they should have and usually get.
3 Because Good Roads are an economy anywhere and everywhere they are
"" built "".'v-'A'
4 Because Good Roads increase the value of our County property the same
as a paved street increases the value of your home by which it passes.
5 Because Good Roads are a big saving on all kinds of vehicles,, such as
Farm Wagons, Trucks, Automobiles, etc.
6 Because the small cost per person amounts to nothing compared with the
great benefits derived by every person in every way.
7 Because this is a new era of modern transportation we are living in, and
the times demand we keep pace with other sections, counties, states, etc.
8 Because the Modern Transportation justifies the building of Good Roads.
9 Because a Bond Issue is the only fair and logical way of raising the mon
ey to build that which you and I want-Good Roads-all over the county.
10 Because we want Good Roads when you and I can enjoy them, as well as
future generations. Therefore, vote for the Bond Issue and build Good
Roads NOW, not five or ten years from now.
GOOD ROADS have made California the most talked of State in the Union.
Let us make Umatilla County the most talked of County in Oregon. We can
do it, we shall do it, we must do it and last but not least, WE WILL DO IT.
And further, now is the time to match dollars with the State WHEN THE
STATE IS READY. Procrastination may rob ua of our chance. When
we get good through roads we'll stand a better chance of getting good laterals.
