HIGHWAYS HELP WIN THE WAR  The Idaho State Highway has declared that highways in that State are  a necessity (for the success of the  government's war programme and  straightway prepares to build more.  This is a logical attitude, but unfortunately not concurred in by other  state highway commissions which believe that the money which might be  spent on roads might well be used for  other purposes. Highways enable the  rapid transportation of farm goods  from the field to the consumer, and  thus have released cars for war ma-  be  devised  to be   placed  on  the  car jerials when railroad cars have been  so scarce as to hold up the counlryjs  v/ar program.

Good roads contributed hugely  in the construction of our IG army  corps and without good roads over  which much of the building material  was hauled many of these camps  would have been delayed several  weeks, and such delay would have represented that much time lost when  our troops could have come to the aid  of our Allies at the front.  The good roads oWrance have contributed the lion's share to the defense of that country. Without the  good roads to the Marne, the Prussian  army would have occupied Paris. With  out the permanent highway to Verdun  the Germans would have passed and  we would never have sent troops to  France-Flanders, but would perhaps today be depending upon the highways  of our own eastern coast over which  to send troops to repel the Hun upon  our own  shores.
