"Our roads, like those in many other states, are ten years be- hind traffic demands, as is proved by the census returns. The figures make a forceful argument for speeding highway development and back its claim for popular public support." The highway department furnished details of census returns in various sections. The Average traffic on state T. R.

Babcock, state highway commissioner, this week announced results of the trunk highway traffic census made the week of August 28 at 137 scattered locations, also compara- tive figur showing big travel in-i creases, and the counts in this section. Minnesota trunk highways are car- rying 665 vehicles a day, according to the general state-wide average, he said, compared with 435 daily average, last year. Further. he added, trunk route travel is three times greater than five years ago. "Tremendous increases in the vol- ume of traffic on Minnesota highways simply show the importance of push- ing" the buihling of better roads with all possible speed," said Commissioner Babcock. "Our roads, like those in many other states, are ten years be- hind traffic demands, as is proved by the census returns. The figures make a forceful argument for speeding highway development and back its claim for popular public support." The highway department furnished details of census returns in various sections. The Average traffic on state T. R.
