SALEM, Aug. 24 During tho next
five yenrs Oregon will receive from
the federal government approximate
ly J1.S20.000 for the building of
ronds under tho provision!) of the
federal nld road act, State Engineer
Lewis aald today on his return froiu
Washington, D. C. If this sum lit
met by the state and counties of Or
egon It will mean $3,640,000 for
Mr. lycwls went to Washington to
attend a conference to discuss rules
and regulations under which $So,-
000.U00 or federal money will bo ex
pended In co-operation with states
"Tho secretary ot agriculture In
anxious that enc) state adopt a com
prehensive road program and apply
avullablo funds direct to such enil
that a Biibstantlnl showing can bo
made during tho five-year period,"
says Lewis. "As the fcdurnl funds
will lnrcelv lin ornuinlnil liv tlm
J states under the direction of tho
I'nlted States oillce of public roads,
thoro will bo a strong tendency to
ward uniformity In state legislation
and the building up of buslnesa-IIku
statu departments to administer road
Two Method Provided.
"The federal act provides two dis
tinct methods for expending this
enormous" sum. Under Section C,
$70,000,000 is to ho expended in co
operation with the states upon the
dollar for dollar basis, on rural post
ronds outside national forests during
thu next live years, both state and
federal money to bo expended by the
stato highway departments under
"Under this section, $78,687 Is
now nallublo to Oregon. On July 1,
1917, $157,375, or double tho
amount, will, bo available. Tho fol
lowing year three times this year's
Allotment will be available, and so
on until tho fifth year, when the
m.l., ...111 l.n lini ttt JllnftMAnln

, will revert if not expended within
two years. Funds contributed by
counties for state work can bo used
to offset federal funds.
National KortviU InrlmUtl.
"Under section 8 of the federal act
$10,000,000 Is to bo expended in co
operation with the state or counties
upon roads within national forests.
Co-operation must be had on some
equitable base, nnd the secretary of
agriculture will probably hold this to
mean a dollar for dollar basis. The
federal funds aro to be expended by
tho federal road department, and
Htnto or county funds tiro to be ex
pended by, or under tho direction of
that department. Co-oporntho work
may bo dono by the stnte or county
upon roads outsldo national forests,
but which connect with forest roads.
"Tho sum of $127,794 will bo
available to Oregon each year under
this section. If not expended within
the year, It will be available until
until tho end of the third year.
"Orccon's allotment under bath
vcctloiis will thus be S20C.4SO for
V tho fiscal year ending July 1, 1917,
rnd $285,170 additional will tm avail
able on such date for the following
year, or a total of $491, 600.
Oregon Neds Money.
"Oregon's quarter million state
highway fund has practlcnlly all been
pledged by the state highway com
mission for 1916 nnd tho $240,000
available In 1917 will not be suffl
clcnt to meet and secure all the fed
eral money available Counties may
meet nnd secure part of such funds,
but preference will doubtless be giv
en to thoso county projects to be con
structed under the supervision of the
etato highway department.
"In addition, the state and coun
ties must agree to properly maintain
co-operative roads, and must provide
rights of way necessary therefor.
"Project statements must bo sub
mitted upon forms provided by the
secretary of agriculture. As a basis
v for approving projects the secretary
-will rcnulro the stato and local fed--ral
authorities to agree upon a gen
eral plan for the Improvement of
highways throughout tho state. All
of tho $3,038,500 which will thus be
expended In the next Ave years by
the state and federal governments In
co-operation can thus be applied to
ward tho construction of through
and connected routes, and not be
frittered away on disconnected pro
jects." Lewis says he believes that the
federal aid act will force the various
state- and county road departments to
adopt higher standards of engineer
ing and accounting, and apply all
available funds towards the comple
tion of definite projects, with pro
XsIods for maintenance. ,
