strurtlon and maintenance of the |
highway. The total Is *1.053.992 43
Every time I go Into southern
Oklahoma towns along that high-
way. complaints come to me that
we haven't spent any money on
| that mad,' Orisso said. "Oor flg-
\ ure.s are prepared as an answer to
| those complaints.”
The county by county expendi-
tures showed that In Choctaw coun-
ty in 1936. $41.389 14 was spent,
and In 1937, $38.576 99 was ex-
| pending for a total of $79.96613.
For Bryan county the figures show-
ed that In 1936 $18,254.32 was sprat,
and in 1937, $14.682 26. for a total
The highway enters the state In
extreme southeast Oklahoma and
lenves It In Cotton county.

eral . aid projects computed since
he lias been a member of the com-
mission showing that *23.130.13767

OAKLAND. Calif., Feb ll-(U.R)—
When Mrs. Beulah Morrison of this
efty went through the rather un-
usual formality of legally adopt-
ing her own daughter, she brought
toi a happy ending one of the odd-
e.sg. domestic tragedies that resulted
fixrm the depression
Following her divorce from her
I ms band In 1927. when she was
awarded the custody of her little
dkiughter. Patricia, all went well
fbr a whUe until the depression
let 1930 made It impossible lor her
t*> earn enough to support them
; Under the circumstances, a mar-
ried sister and her husband agreed
-to adopt Patricia and rear her as
a member of their own family. The
neeesaarv court proceeding accord-
ingly was gone .through with which
invested in them all legal rights
for the custody of the girl.
With the passing of tire depres-
sion, however, the mother finally j
obtained a good position as an ac-
countant and in the end was able
to establish a home for herself.
The foster parents In the mean-
time had become devotedly attach-
ed to Patricia. But after a family
consultation it was decided that
Patricia, now 15. should go back to
To make It legal, however, it
was necessary for the mother to
bring legal proceedings for the
adoption of her own daughter to
set aside the validity of the first
