Judge Bushey Suggests Term
Of Construction On Propos
ed Good Roads Program B
Judge Bushey and 1he Marion coun
ty commissioners are in favor of upend
ing money for market roads, but they
insist that the money should be epeut
In a letter addressed to T. B. Kav.
chairman of the Marion county good
roads committee, the bounty court
says: '"Our only aim and suggestion Is
to trout each and every section of the
county fairly.and not to pave one sec
tion of the county at the expense of
nnotJier. In addition to that, to see
that the county undertakes and prom
ises no more than we may reasonably
expect to perform. "
tseven Years Too Long
The letter to Mr. Kay is. in re
sponse to a request in which the coun
ty court was asked to etute its posi
tion more fully in reirard to tho nrooos-
ed plan as outlined by the good roads
committee. The letter says: "If every
tax payer would share the benefits of
tho program equally, it would not he
so bud. But there are many taxvavors
who will not only fail to participate
in tho benefit in any appreciable de
gree, .but are practically deprived from
hoping for anything in tho way of di
rect oenefitw ror a period of seven
vears an the future. '
As tho court believes that a wait of
seven years for some localities is 1oo
long, the suggestion is made thst the
period of construction be made much
fiO Milan to Be Improved
The letter states that in addition to
the Pacific highway, paveil by the
state, the county has 100 miles of muin
traveled highway. On a basis of 13,
iMm) a mile Including roadlved, the cost
would be l,5uO,Od. As to the other
0 miles recommended bv llic good

the opinion the roads are in a hilly
country and would require an cxhobit
tant sum for reducing them to the five
per cent grade.
In reaard to these ."0 milis 'the let-
I tor says: "If these other fifty miles
were thoroughly graded up so that
tin y are well drained and if the grades
were reduced to a reasonable percent
age and if they are hard surfaced and
gravelled, they could be placed in ex

estimated expenditure of approximate
ly $JOO,(K)0,- making a total expendi
ture of about $1,700,000. "
"It appears also that by keeping
up the tax levy to a maximum and by
receiving tin h other fumis as are reas

(United Press Staff Correspondent.)
Paris, May 2. Italian representatives
remaining in Paris were circulating re
ports today that their peaco delegates
will not return to Paris unless they are
specifically iivited by 'the other allies.
According to information from au
thoritative sources, it is doubtful that
such an iuvitation will be extended al
though some "quiet" efforts may be
made to induce the Italians to come to
Paris to participate in signing the pence
treuty with Oermanv.
Still Cite London Pact.
The claim is made by Italians here
that the part of London prevents any
pence being signed wtibout them, When
this theory was advanced duri; the
conference which prcccoe fie itahnn
withdrawal, it was pointed out that the
publication of tho pact preventing a
separate pence could be interpreted as
recognizable only so long as Germany
continued a military menace. Signing
if the armistice was held to have re
moved this menace and abrogated that
particular section of tho secret treaty.

An Italian todav participated in an of
