good start was made on road work
in Baca County in 1917. The war
stopped it. Now we are at it
again, hoping to go as far as funds
will allow, if not as far as we like.
We did not wait for "gifts" of ma-
chinery from l.'ncle Sam, because
we didn't know they would be of-
fered. The county recently
bought a new tractor and grading
outfit, for use on the D-C-D and
other roads. State and federal
money is to be spent this summer
on about Ifi miles of the state
highway and the D-C-D from
Prowers County south to Spring-
field. The people want trunk lines

missioners at Springfield recently

BACA COUNTY COLO-
RADO AND THE D-C-D
Onda Young, vice president of
the D-C-D highway for Two
Buttes, Colorado, advises D-C-D
headquarters here that the D-C-D
highway has been graded from the
Kansas line to Prowers County
line via Two Buttes and that
the Springfield section will soon
be completed. He also advises
that the Highway Commission has
granted Baca County $22,000.00,
federal aid and $12,800 state aid
for the D-C-D the coming year.
Baca County has $7,200 of her
own, thus making a total of $42,-
000, which puts this part of the
D-C-D in fine shape. This is very
encouraging and shows that the
people everywhere are doing their
best for the D-C-D highway, which
is destined in the near future to
be one of the best highways in
the southwest. Hemphill County
will do her part to make this a real
