is to be used on roads in cities. All

It Is time for us to get out of tho ;
mud. We need and must have good
roads. They will add to the wealth, !
thrift and happiness of our people and
our state. This measure ($6,000,000
road bond bill) does not add one far
thing to our taxes; it simply capital
izes waste. No sane man or woman
should offer a single word of opposi
tion to this movement. Governor
I Withycombo at state-wide good road3
; rally in Portland.
Six years ago the people of Califor
! nla voted $18,000,000 bonds for good
' roads. The measure rweivrd only a
small majority. 'Last Novcmhor they
voted an' additional $15,000,000 of
: bends for further road work. Tho
vote at the second election was i to 1
for the bonds. There's a reason. Cal
