| the stroke of midnight Monday a new
era in road administratis was ushered
i in in Oklahoma, as on Tuesday the
j new road law went into effect.
The state highway department will

sioners will take hold of organizing
a state and county highway system
which, when completed will give Ok-
lahoma the most complete system of
highways in the nation.
The new law provides ways and
means for the raising of nearly six
million dollars annually as the county
levy has been increased from 5 to 8
mills for road purposes. The state
will aid every county which levies a
special quarter of a mill tax by giving
them a like amount. Means have
been provided for dragging the roads
by contract, and convict labor can be
secured by counties at a minimum ex-
