(Frcparad by lb United State Department of Agriculture.) During" July and August, cloudbursts, which are practically very heavy thunderstorms, cause sertoui problems In road construction In Nevada and Utah. The bureau of public roads of the United States Department of Agriculture has worked out several effective methods of protecting roads from these Immense sudden flows of water after long dry spells. Where the drainage channels are well defined no great difficulty Is Involved In the design of the road drainage structures ; but where the flood spreads out over a delta or a valley It Is a problem so to locate the line and drainage structures that the latter will save the road from destruction. In sections where the flood tends to spread out, a wide berni on each side of the roadway makes a substantial protection.

Evidence of the widespread interest in good highways was shown at the recent meeting of the General Federation of Women's Clubs at Suit Lake City. In endorsing the Town-sen- d bill for national highways, now before congress, Mrs. John Dickinson Sherman of Chicago, chairman of the department of applied education, said: "It Is not necessary for us to point out the real interest of American women In highway nintters. The influence of real highways on country life, on economics, on education, Is now generally understood. What Is needed Is a national highway policy which will conserve government funds, and, of federal through concentration money on main highways, will give us a connected system at the earliest moment and the least expense."
