■^1 RQAD«-I54RM IMPROVEMENT EXPERIMENTS IN GOOD ROADS Present Efforts May Lead to Discov- ery of Binding Material That Is Quite Essential. The efforts to obtain a durable bin- der for road material are not without value, becauce they clearly show what to avoid, and may. by the slow pro- cess of elimination, lead to the dis- covery of the binding material that is so essential to road making at the present time. There is nothing yet known in this country, nor yet in France, where a system of 18,000 miles of federal roads Is under constant, scientific super- vision, tha. will withstand the double effect ol horsedrawn vehicles and pneumatic-tired motor cars. But if ;f"*re is any combination that will meet these requirements, it is certain to be brought to light some day, and by just the kind of experiments made in Camden and elsewhere, says the Newark News. In Vermont and In Massachusetts, where crushed Btone is abundant, the roads that are made of good gravel appear to be giving good s...

It Is meet and proper that this effort should be begun In a great and historic county In this State, and In a city, the Lexing- ton of Texas, where one of the earliest contests for freedom was waged In a war with the then government of Mexico. Such on effort should receive the benediction and blessing of the descendants of those brave men, whose virtues and valor yonder monument chronicles, and which it will carry, let us hope, to your re- motest posterity But more than all It Is fitting that In this great county, where In the morning of his life my father went forth to light the battles of his country In 1861, I sho...

State's Duty to Educate. Whatever may be said of local self govern- ment, certainly no one will claim that it is not the duty of Texas to give to all of her children everywhere the opportunity to obtain a com- mon school education, and I believe that this Is a Statewide duty which should be enforced by the State in every locality for the benefit of every child within this State and there can be no better evidence of the Governor's lack of harmony with the broad educational policy which Texas should pursue than this recom- mendation in bis first message.
