T. Anderson, editor of the Macon Telegraph, in a speech deliver- ered -before the Milledgeville Ki wanis club Friday evening, made an able and convincing argument in favor of a state issue of bonds for school purposes and road building. Mr. Ander*on was heard by the numbers of the club, and a number j of other citizens, who were the pecial guests of the club The speaker was introduced by the President Mr. L. C. Hall, and he was given a cordial welcome. Mr. Anderson was forceful in hi* criticism* of the conditions that had been brought about a shortage of $3.- i 000,000.00 for the common school funds, compelling tjhe ischooj: throughout the state to close, am the payment of the salaries of the euchers to be delayed. It was a d grace 10 the State. He favored bond issue, and the appointment of a commission composed of twelve' appointees one from each congress ional district to study the condition of the schools, and to place the money derived from the sale of the bonds, in building up a unified educational system. In discussing road bonds Mr. An derson brought out facts and figures showing that Georgia under the pres ent system was making slow pro gress in building permanent roads, and that large amounts cf money were being wasted.

McMullen, ent road far exceeded that in those states w lich had paved roads and It with the cost of excess gasoline would more than pay the amount of the bond interest. He showed that North Carolina by issuing bonds and building n permanent road sys tem, had far outstiipped the other outhern states in progress and ad vancement. In discu: keting advantages given the farmer by paved roads, he cited instances, showing the great advantages that had come to farmers, dairymen anu truck growers in Bibb county in get- ing their products to market since the highway from Macon to Atlanta had been paved. He was convincing in his arguments that the toll under the present road system in the State was far in excess of the amount of interest thut would accrue from a bond issue.
