FEDERAL AID FOR ROADS.
The public has hardly begun to appreciate the road
building possibilities opened by the federal appropriation
recently made by congress. The pestoffice bill provides
$209,000,000 to be distributed among the states during the
ne'xt three years for highway improvement, on a fifty
fifty basisthat is the industrial states bearing no less
than half the expense.
To thi3 sum should be added the funds available from
the original federal aid road act, passed in 1916, which
provided 75,000,000 for a five-year period ending m
1921, and $10,000,000 more for forest roads over a ten-
vear period. .The states have been so little interested in
such help that only $3,000,000 of the original $85,000,000
has been used up, and there remains $KZ,000,000 to add to
the new allowance of $209,000,000.
It is thus seen that nearly $300,000,000 of govern
ment money is available for roads during 1919, 1920 and
1921 and that if the states take full advantage of these
funds on the fifty-fifty basis there will be nearly $600,
000,000 to spend during this three-year period.
An admirable feature of the new law is the liberality
of the terms under which the national funds may be dis
tributed. The government is permitted to contribute to
state roads as much as $20,000 a mile. Moreover, the
law authorizes the war department to transfer, for such
work,-road-building materials which it may no longer
need. The roads to which federal aid is given are tech
nically supposed to be "post roads," but this term is now
made so elastic as to include "any public road a major
portion of which is now used, or can be used, or forms a
connecting link not to exceed ten miles in length of any
road or roads now or hereafter used, for the transporta
tion of United States mails."
It is inconceivable that there should not be an urgent
demand, in every state, to take full advantage of this
unprecedented opportunity for road-improvement. Any
state government that does not take immediate steps to
obtain and utilize its share of the appropriation is shirk
ing its duty.

at this time is whether the whole great plan of the League
of Nations is to be defeated because we can't get a two

The Oregonian pretends to print an editorial review
of President Wilson's six years in office, and never al
ludes to such memorable achievements in legislation as the
enactment of the federal reserve law, which has establish
ed a real banking system for the country after generations
of haggling over it; of the passage of the rural credits
law, which has resulted already in the loaning of hund
reds of millions of dollars to the farmers at a low rate
of interest and on long time. It had alwavs been talked
about and never enacted into law. Of the creation off the
federal trade commission which seems to handle ''big
business more sensibly than it was ever handled before
by government agencies. These are just a few of the ad
ministrative accomplishments of President Wilson which
the Oregonian ignores by saying that in domestic affairs
the national administration has been weak. .

By Walt Mason
Most topics that you would discuss are sad and tire
some things to us; for we are tired and prone to balk at
all the endless streams of talk. We long for silence, nuiet,
peace, and wish the eloquence would cease. How sweet
and restful it would seem if every bore and evry theme
could be by might of law suppressed! Oh, that would
soothe our souls distressed. We're tired of war and pol
itics, of Huns and all their Hunnish tricks, of problems
large and problems small, of Russian freaks and Prussian
gall, of doves of peace and fists of steel, and all the things
of which bores spiel. Oh, for a glen of brosky dell, where
we remote from talk might dwell ! Oh, for some hollow in
the ground, where Windy Jims are never found! Some
hermitage among the trees, where one might live on
bark and peas, and never meet a noisy bore who'd thrash
the moldy topics o'er! We'd think our thoughts and read
our books in sylvan glades, by babbling brooks, where
wordless songs by birds are sung, and never hear a human
tor-giie. For we are weary, heartsick gents; we're tired
of stale 'old arguments; oh, fcr some cavern in the west,
where talkworn delegates might rest!.
