PAOE TWO W COUNTY P]tmS PARK RIVER, NORTH DAKOTA THURSDAY, MARCH Explain $54 Million Bond Proposal To Appear on June Primary Ballot The North Dakota Legislature at its last session passed a resolution to place on the June primary bal- lot an amendment to the state con- stitution giving the legislature pow- er to authorize a $54 million bond issue for highway constructiorL An article explaining the "Why, When. Where and How" of the con- stitutional amendment has been prepared by the Citizens Highway Committee (The committee consists of the authors of the Bill, Senators Gall Hernett. Clyde Dufy, John Lair, Orvil Hagen and Franklin Page, and co-directors Murray Bald- win and Vic Gilbreath of the legis- lative research committee). Here is the article: O THE WHY Thy is it necessary for this amendment to appear on the June 26th primary election ballot? The Constitution of the State of North Dakota prohibits the legislature from bonding the State unless the people, by a favorable vote, so em- power them to do so. This measure therefore is what is termed enabl- ing legislation, giving the Legisla- ture. your duly elected Representa- tives and Senators. with the approv- al of the Government. the authority to issue general ab]igation bonds of the State for me purpose of high- way construction. It naturally follows: why does the legislature deem it necessary to have this approval? Our State High- way program has been for years operating on a hand to mouth basis, that is every two years scheduled highway construction is determined by the action of the legislature in that the Highway Department dare not nor does not commit itself to a construction program until it knows what monies the legislature makes available to them for the purpose of said construction. The result of this kind of a pro- gram are no doubt evident to you. A ten mile stretch of hard surfacing on this road. a ten mile stretch on another, and on still another, with the result that the benefits to be derived by the residents of any one community from a completed high- way system, are available to none. Why hasn't the legislature provid- ed sufficient funds for the Highway Department to complete these vari- ous highways when hard surfacing has once begun? That answer should be very apparent to you Commissioners who are continually wrestling witl) the problem of money. That is the answer MONEY. Raising money everr two years to operate the departments of State Government, schools, charitable in- stitutions and penal institutions with mill levy limitations, similar limitations with which you are con- fronted, does not provide sufficient sources of revenue to finance a ten year "Pay as you Go" program of hLhway construction. Our situation is a great deal like the young married couple that had decided not to buy a home until they could pay for it all in cash. As time wore on. their family increased their needs for a home ever more urgent, they realized that the solu- tion to their problem was to pay as much down on their home as they could and enjoy living in the home as they paid. This comparison is in fact the in- tent of this enabling legislation, to pay as much down on our highway construction program as is available from taxation for that purpose, the balance to be raised "through the issuance of bonds, being retired as we entoy the use of the newly con- structed hard surface highways. The Why of why do we need hard surfaced roads must be apparent to II of yrou. Our entire economy is now of wheels, yes rollin wheels: the school bus. the mail carriers, the doctor, the housewife and her shop- ping needs, the farmer and his many needs in town and not the least the churches, are some of the every day activities which to mosl of us have become automatic but upon which we are dependent on wheels, these rollin wheels. Great as are our needs today for rollin wheels, who can foresee ust how much e-rearer will we be dependent upon these same rolling wheels ten ye,r frnm now? THE WHEN The highway construction pro- gram intended as a result of this amendment is based upon a ten year plan of construction. At the request of the five Senators, spon- sors of this amendment, the State Highway Department was asked to develop a plan of construction, tak- ing into consideration the contract- ors available for this type of work. the yearly time feasible for such kind of work. the miles to be re- built and hard surfaced and an esti- mated over all cost of the program. Their reply to this request is the basis upon which this amendment is founded, takin into consideration of course the Federal Aid offered to the various States on a matchin basis. Federal Highway Aid money, though originally ours. is two for one money, one dollar thirty cents of Federal Atd money for every dollar we spend in the construction of our own hihwmvs. As such it is of the upmost im- portance that we utiT every means available to meet this match- ln money, as the failure to do. so results in the offer bcin withdrawn and the monies so unmatched betn offered to states that can meet the 1 matching requirement. Our last / Legislature was unable to find re- ] venue enoug to appropriate ap- proximately three million dollars to match a similar amount offered in Federal Aid, a goodly sum toward our higbwav ,,,nstruetion. Recent Washington news releases speak of a greatly accelerated high- way construction program. If such a program is enacted then we in North Dakota want to be in a posi- tion to take advantage of that pro- gram. The passage of this amend- ment will assure the people of North Dakota that they will be in a position to take advantage of every incentive offered by the Fed- eral Government to assist in the construction of our highways, both primary and secondary. This ac- celerated Federal Highway Program might result in an even shorter time than the ten years to carry out our highway construction pro- gram, but come what may, by the passage of this amendment we will be in a position to take advantage of any opportunity. THE WHERE This amendment is the basis upon which the people of North Dakota, for the first time. are being offered a state wide overall hard surface construction program. This is a tate wide construction plan that includes every county within our State. Pause a moment and reflect what an advantage it would be to the residents of your County if all the primary and secondary roads, on our present State Highway Sys- tem. would be hard surfaced. This is exactly what is contemplated in asking your support of this measure. Demanding as are the needs for these all weather roads right now, one must realize that much work must be done before they become an actuality. Grades must be re- built, to take advantage of natures way of snow removel, the wind; bridges must be rebuilt or replaced, to meet the preent day type of traffic. These are just two of the musts before hard surfacing can begin. the picture and here again we must rely upon the Highway Department estimate of ten years to complete the lob. Ten years time does seem long, but unless we make a begin- ning NOW, who is there to say when we will be blessed with an adequate system. Based upon the average of new hard surfaced high- way constructed over the past five Years, unless this prograra is adopt- ed. it will take 354 years before all our primary and secondary roads are hard surfaced. We've all a little of the "Me First" in us, but un- fortunately we all can't be first. We are sure that given the assur- ance that all our present primary and secondary roads will be hard surfaced within ten years, the most of us will be satisfied to await our turn. The fact that we have that assurance is conclusive proof that this is indeed a state wide highway construction measure. THE HOW By the passage of this Constitu- tional Amendment the Legislature can give the "Go Ahead" signal to the Highway Department and by so doing assure the people of North Dakota that we are to have the highways for which there has been such a demand and which are so necessary for our progress. This amendment assures the Leg- islature that they have the authority to issue bonds for that amount not raised by any other means, to keep the highway construction program going, If. in their session every two years, they find they cannot raise sufficient income to meet the high- way building requirements of the coming biennium, then and then only is it intended that they issue bonds to make up the deficit. This procedure is to be repeated in their sessions of every two years until the ten year plan for the hard sur- facing of the State system is com- pleted. The sponsoring Senators request- ed, as they did in the details of the construction phase of this program, the advice of the Bank of North Dakota regarding the bonds to be issued. The bonds are to be ten year bonds, their retirement to be complete within the next ten years, similar in length of time as is rea- sonable to assume will be the life of the newly constructed hard sur- faced highways, truly a "Pay as you Use" program. To the benefits of having these all weather highways to drive upon, in this Pay as you Use program, must be added the saving in main-] Committee Plans I tenance cost, and to you personally that savings in operating your car Area Conference or truck on hard surfaced highways. Who's to pay for this program? On Education Why everyone that stands to bene- fit by this modern highway system.

This amendment empowers the Legisla- ture to raise as much money as pos- sible through taxation to meet the financial requirements of this pro- gram and then. if sufficient monies are not available, to make up the diference by issuing bonds. The responsibility is that of your duly elected Representatives and Senators. da from our own capital city. The next forum is the United Nations, where the communists sit with capitalistic representatives, who hold directly opposite pholosophies. The avowed purpose of the United States was said to be "the attain- ment and preservation of World Peace". From this center the Soviets broadcast their propaganda with the same impuity they practice in the United States. In the United Nations we seek to stop aggression the Soviets encourage it. We help the invaded country and Russia ads the aggressor. Hence. theoretic- ally we are at war with the Soviel i Union and the Soviet Union is at war with us--and mind you both are members of an organization in- tended for world peace. We are getting just nowhere in this as- sociation, and will get nowhere. when its own two member. Russia and the United States. are as far apart in aims as the North Pole is from the South Pole.

Burdick United States Congressman IS OUR AIR POWER BEING NEGLECTED It should be plain to every citizen now that if there ever was a time when we should be vigilant in per- fecting and maintaining a success- ful defense to this country it is now. The cold war has about run its course, and we are going to emerge within the next three years into a period of peace or open war. The constant bombardment of alarms. threats and boastful propaganda will soon wear the nerves of the people in this country threadbare. We ought to know now that bur best and in fact our most important defense lies in air power and air power improvements, defense against bombing and against guided missles. It is axiomatic that any gadget that can be invented for the destruction of man without risk to the assailant can also have its gad- get of self-protection to counteract the dangers of enemy aerial assault. On this matter of aerial combat and aerial protection it is evident, from reliable sources here, that we are not doing enough--in other words, that our appropriations for that purpose are not sufficient. This is one place where we can not economize. We can very well divert some of the $4 billion that we propose giving away to other countries and use it for the pre- servation of a country that is doing more for the cause of freedom and liberty than all the other countries in the world. Suppose we rob our own defenses in order to defend others. The inevitable conclusion will be that with a neglected home defense we shall be powerless to give any assistance to any of the I think it is just to say that our others or to protect ourselves. intended appropriations for aerial defense is at least $2 billion short of what is needed. Of course it is just too bad that we have to make these giant expenditures, but in the absense of a durable and guaranteed peace we are compelled to be pre- pared to defend ourselves against the intentions and designs of the Soviets, It ought to be clear to everyone from the admissions and literature of the Russians that their purpose is the destruction of world capitalism. We believe in. and have long practiced capitalism, and are not apt to abandon this agency of progress. There can be no middle ground on which these two ideas can function together. People can talk "peaceful co-ex- istence" or profess belief in any other slogan, but unless communism ceases its propaganda and as long as it is permitted to hold great forums from which its propaganda can be launched, there will be no end to its effort to destroy us. One of its great forums is the United States itself We have recognized Russia. and her agents are here by invitation, spreading the propagan- Happy Hands make Happy Homes 4-H boys and girls take an eager interest in mak- ing their homes attractive and comfortable . . . and as a result bring joy to their parents and themselves.
