Both Mr. Benson, Sr., and Mr. Yaoe
are convinced that the coast road, aa
well as the mountain routes from
Grants Pam 'to Crescent City, C al,
and from Roeeburg to Corn Bay will,
when completed along standard lines,
be instrumental to attracting many
motor tourists to Oregon. They point
out, too, that each of these reads is
of tremendous economic importance,
being needed to the full development
of these communities.
They feel that the coast road from
Coos Bay to ths California line will
be of scenic rather than
significance and, therefore, It
wait until the opportune time far
Over and above alPetee they believe
that the Pacific Highway and other
main trunk roads must bars first con

the state should not, aad will not,
