"Just to the extent that the citi
zens of a community take an active
interest inthe public and civic prob
lems which confront them will that
community proper and advance."
One great problem confronting the
people of Lane county today is the
road problem. 1 shall not herein
waste lime and space on the advan
tages of good roads, as I believe a
majorivv of 'ha people understand
and appreciate their value. j
This road problem should be given
serious attention, frank and honest
discussion, that all may understand
the facts of the situation and a ma
jority decide what is best to be done.
We must deal in figures and facts
and not prejudices and personalities.

county with a valuation of $35,000.
000 can raise approximately $16.r,
0(10 each year for roads and bridges.
This amount can be increased by fi
tier cent each year under the 6 per
cent limitation law. During the year
1920 this amount is to be expended
as follows: Retiring warrants $20.-
000: bridges, $110.000 ; Pacific high
way, $40,000; road districts, $a3.000;
scarifying and resurfacing. $5,000;
equipment and repairs, $5,000; rock
crusher. $4,000; weak districts. $4,
000; Harrishurg ferry. $1,400; road
niaster. $2. GOO. However, the above
amounts for bridges, road districts,
rock crushers, weak districts, scari
fying and resurfacing and equipment
and repairs, were this year seriously
cut and efficiency hampered in order
to pay the $20,000 retiring warrants
and the $40,000 indebtedness incurred
in building the Pacific highway.
Funds Must Be Kept Up.
Of this available fund of $165,000.
two and one-half mills, or about $ti3.
000 should go back to the individual
road districts for local expenditures.
At least $10 000 should go hack to
the weak district fund. Lane county
has nveraeed $7a:H toward this fund
duting the past four years. Thirty
five thousand dollsrs should go back
