Practical Way to Get Good Roads
1194 IVarl, Eugene. May 12.
I am in favor of bonding the coun
ty because I believe it to he the
ouickest. fairest and most practical
wav to get good roads.
With all the necesjiiirv fuiN vni.

Roads for All. All the Ye
. Eugene. Oregon. Mav 1 4. 19?0
Here's my idea of "good roads":
A comprehensive system of good
r"ads for the whole county roads
for all. all thr vear. Roads available
for this general 'on. but so well bnlli
as to he an asset for future genera
t'ons. Roads financed in such a wav
that costs will tie eoiiublv distri
buted over all who will be benefited

Therefore I am twe' for the road
bonds. W. KlTYKENDALL.
A" Accepted Necessity
Eugene. Oregon, May 14. 1920.
Good roads are an accepted neces
sity by everyone The people are de
termined to secure for themselves
the benefits aJid profits resulting
trom good rouds.
The problem then is to determine
how to finance the project. To build
out of funds raised directly by taxes
means an unfair and excessive burde.i
on the taxpayers of today. To bond
shifts a just share of the costs to the
next generation, who share In the
benefits. Cart of the payment Is
thereby delayed until a time when
the increased wealth resulting from
the Improved means of transporta
tion, makes the tax less.
The small purchasing power of the
dollar appears to be the most sub
stantial argument against the pro
ject. Offsetting that, we have defi
nite fixed costs whether or not we
make use of otir county road-building
machinery and organization. Costs
are high, that is true; so are prices
which the producer receives for his
rroduct. Let us facilitate then the
means of getting that product into
the present market. Will not the high
prices Justify and absorb the costs in
volved? DAVID GRAHAM.
Good Roads Are Worth Their Pries
Junction City. Ore.. May 13, 1920
Good roads are the best asset a
community may possess. I live on a
xood road. I realize its worth and
value. Three hundred miles more of
;;ood roads in Lane county would
greatly increase the wealth of the
county. I appreciate the benefits r
eived from my good road, and I de
sire to see these benefits scattered to
.it her localities in Ijine county. Good
oads are worth their price.

Good Roads Mean Better Schools
Eugene, May 12. 1920.
The reason I am In favor of the
bond program at the present time U
that in many parts of Lane county
It will pay for Itself in less than five
years by reduction of taxes for school
In several places this coming year
schools WOULD consolidate if the
tcople had roads over which it would
be possible to transport their chil
dren, and in this way cutting dowu
the teaching force and thus reducing

C. M. HULBKRT. Bust master.
Suoport the Bonds
Coburg. Oregon. May 13.
It is imperative that Lane county
bavo good roads for the development
of rural communities. A good ni'irk'-t
road system not only Increases the
taxable property, but saves many do
lars in gas and tires for the motor
vehicle, aud horse flesh for the horse
drawn vehicle. It also brings the
rural communities nearer to the city.
One of the problems of the farmer
Is to keep hirer! helo on the farm.
Our transnortation now Is motor ve
hicles. Build a good rood vast your
farm that can be uscW' 12 m nMi- ;n
the year and voir boy and girl and
hired rutin won't be in such a hurry
to go. T. Q. GREEN. '
Definite Program With Available
Oakrldge. May 12. ,1920
A complete, definite road building
urogram assures success If necessary
funds are available. The bond Issue
offers such a program, and the only
certain mean of securing such funds.
Therefore I greatly favor thg bond

Good Roads Important Factor in
Florence. May 12. 120.
I favor bonding lane county for
road-building now because good roads
are an important factor In develop
ing a country; tbey give pleasure in
traveling, save time, lessen wear on
vehicles, and , Increase property val
ues. Bonding' Is the most practicable
method to raise funds for road con
struction. W, If. WKATIIERSO.V.
Help Ourselves Others Help Us
Mapleton. Oregon. May 12. 1S20.
One renson why I favor the pres
ent bond Issue Is that this Is an un
developed portion of the county
which has fine prospects that only
need good roads to make It a pros
rerous and pleasant place to live.
Another reuson Is that the way the
present bond program Is gotten up ev
ery, voter can know exactly what be
is voting for.
The third reason Is that by bonding
to help ourselves others help us. I
mean the $1,425,000 state and govern
ment money which we could get In
no other way. ONO S. IHKLIS.
Good Roads a Good Investment
Ada. Oregon, May 13, 1920.
1. Shall ' Oregon progress? I say,
yes; let us do something or move out
and give some one a chance who will
improve the county.
2. How shall we progress? Good
rouds built now by the bond issue.
Good roads are s good Investment re
gardless of cost.
