Transcript Tliiil was one side. The other side will come nexi. Flore are arguments <>f some who DO NOT approve of Ike's proposed ten-year highway huildin^ program. Ike's Highway Program (Continued from Page 3) other supplies and road-building equipment would gel billions in additional business. Willi the extra business, the construction industry would stay strong. New roads would stimulate the building of new factories, suburbs, and shopping centers.9 Once the job is eleem- and traffic can move more freely and rapidly, the financial benefits will flow lo automobile and lire manufacturers, to the gasoline- eunl travel industry. All commerce will made more efficienl through easier, quicker movement ol goods. Some criticism of the President's plan has come from people who have lhe mistaken notion that toll roads can correct our serious highway problem. But toll roads, as experience has shown. can be made to pay for themselves only on the most heavily traveled highways, and these eire ei minute proportion of the total. Less than ei thousand miles of toll roads eire in use today. If twenty thousand miles of toll roads were buill that would Still be only one-half of one per cent of all the federal aid highways.0 Only the federal government can properly supervise the planning and building of a highway system which will serve the needs of all the people' "i our expanding economy.

Therefore-, government must do all of these things for them. Government musl lake everything that everyone earns, put it in a big pot, and then dole back out to all the portions which governmenl thinks each one ought lo have. That is total socialism, ll is also, of course', total slavery.10 Today we in the I nited Slates arc jusl about half-slave and half-free. If you could compute eill of the taxes lhat you eictueilly pay in direct income tax. \.eiieeiis federal emd stale and local excise and retail seilcs (axes, plus the hidden taxes which go into the high cosl ol everything you must buy—you woulil discover lhat somewhat more —Wide World Photos I fcHlGHWAY HEADACHES—Across the nation, traffic snarling is a major problem.
