Ix-hanon Caseadia Good
Ronds Association Formed
at .Meeting Held in Leba
non Saturday Evening
To Work for Forest Funds to
Duild Highway Over the
Mountains and to Work for
Uetter County Roads
With the Kood roads sentiment
spreading all over the state, with
more than $30,000,000 available
for roads in Oregon during the
next three years, a meeting was
held at I-e'oanon Saturday evening
to organize an association to see
that Eastern Linn county get
what is coming to it.
Hon. M. A. Miller of Portland was
n the city yesterday and reports tr.At
the meeting at Lebanon was well at
tended and much enthusiasm shown.
The organization of The Lebanon-Cas-
cadia Good Roads association was
perfected with Geo nre W. Cruson,
preKident; O.'ll. Russell, Sweet Home,
first vice-president; George M. Gei
sendorfer.s Casradia, second Tice
president and N. M. Newport, Lebanon
secretary. Another big meeting will
' e held at Lebanon soon and Sweet
Home also will hold a meeting, bring
ing speakers of statewide reputation
to talk on roads.
After Government Money
The principal object of the associa
tion is to promote the building of a
road over the Cascades. The forestry
service has $5,000,000 more to spend
ia building roads through national fr
nts in Oregon this year than they had
last. In the past Linn county has re
ceived no appropriations from the
ovemment for forest roads. T h
National Forest begins at White City,
two miles above Cascadia, and ex
tends for 50 or 60 miles across the
mountains to Black Butte. By work
ine with the forestry service it is hop
ed to get this road built, which would
not only mean easy access to Cascadia,
Linn county's one summer resort, but
would open a big trade across the
mountains from Eastern Oregon "
Willamette Valley towns.
Linn County Must Hustle
In speaking of the proposition, Mr.
Miller said:
"Within the next three years more
than $30,000,000 will be spent for
roads in Oregon. Linn county must
get her share of that money. There
must be created a sentiment for good
roads and then the county treasury
must be supplied with money to spend
on roads.
"The legislature has provided in a
bill to lie voted on by the people on
June 3 a one-mill road levy which will
raise $1,000,000. This money Is to
T.e put up against an equal amount to
be given by the counties for the Im
provement of farm roads connecting
up a ith the highways. The thing for
Linn county to do is to vote five-
