GOOD ATTENDANCE FOR ROADS CONGRESS
"Prospects are good for a large attendance at the convention here next Wednesday and Thursday of the Tri-State Good Roads assocation," said John A. Westerlund, president of the association today. "We especially look for a larger home attendance than at the previous convention held here. Every public spirited citizen of Jackson and adjoining counties should make it a point to attend the opening convention session next Thursday at 1:30 p. m. in the natatorium.
"The delegates and convention visitors from the northern and other parts of the state are anxious to see the Pacific highway, which was the first hard surfaced road highway to be constructed in the state. Therefore we have arranged to take all the delegates and other out of town visitors over the highway to the top of the Siskiyous in automobiles next Thursday, leaving Medford at 9:30 a.m. On the return trip a stop will be made at Ashland at noon where luncheon will be served by the civic improvement club of that city."
