Eugene.— Road-building, a course of
study for the rural schools of western
Lane county, is to be introduced with­

of its kind ever tried in Oregon. Ac­
tual road-building is the laboratory
work which will accompany this
course. The children of each district
will build and maintain during the

son, Lane county’s most active good
roads enthusiast, was so pleased with

mentals of road building in the rural
schools that he immediately offered
two huge silver cups as prizes for this
good roads contest.
