Highway Engineer Finds Support
for Governor Brucker's
Contention.

FAVORS LICENSE

BILL

Says Townships Are Incompetent
to Afford Engineering
Services.
Support for Governor Wilber M.
Brucker's contention that counties
should assume responsibility for
the maintenance of township roads
was {offered by Prof. Roger L. Mor-
rison, of the highway engineering
department, in an interview yes-
terday.
The governor made his state-
ment concerning control of the
township roads in an address last
Friday night before the delegates
to the state highway convention in
the main ball room of the Union.
Several reasons were presented for
the belief.
An Economic Loss.
Professor Morrison said that the
reason for this move was because
of the great expenditure of money
due to the inability of the town-
ships to afford competent engi-
neering services and thefactthat
great sums of money are wasted
due to work being done hetrogen-
eously rather than by plans pre-
pared in advance. There are only
24 states in the Union that have
the township as a highway admin-
istrative unit, all the others hav-
ing realized the advantages of elim-
inating the office of township high-
way commissioner long before, he
said.
Discusses License Law.
When questioned about the new
driver's license law which is before
the legislature at the present time
Professor Morrison said:
"Apparently a good driver's li-
cense law would reduce the debts
of the state about 29 per cent. This
is true because if they had passed
such a law at the last legislature,
they would have saved about 1,000
lives, about 30,000 personal injuries
and an economic loss of approxi-
mately one-quarter of a million
dollars. This is based on calling a
life $5,000, a personal injury about
$175, and property damage approx-
imately $50 to each accident."
