Operating and maintenance costs,

averaged 3.07 cents per mile on earth
roads, 2.17 cents on gravel and 1.44
on pavement.
These figures, released after an
article written for Michigan Alum-
nus by Professor Morrison was pub-
lished, prove even more conclusively
his statements in that discussion.
Concerning this subject, he said:
"Every plain gravel road in Mich-
igan collects a tax of about one-half
cent a mile, or more, from the owner
of every automobile which passes over
it. That is the added cost of gaso-
line, tires, and maintenance, as com-
pared with the operating costs on a
smooth pavement.

The encyclopedia now has 400 ar-

said Mr. Shaw, who is editing it. He
added that more work on the regular

iFiremen Batle In Cold
To Put Out $10,000 Fire
Although city firemen battled in
20 degree cold to extinguish it, a $10,-
000 fire swept a home at 223 Crest
Ave. yesterday.
Discovery of the fire was male by
students of the Slauson school who
saw smoke from a classroom window.
The fire department was notified but
its efforts proved unavailing and the
building was almost completely de-
stroyed. Several thousand dollars
damage was done to furniture with
the building itself suffering to the ex-
tent of approximately $8,000.
