Detroit, Mich., Oct. 5.—Directors of the Lincoln Highway Association have been meeting here this week, coincident with the sessions of the Third American Good Roads Congress, and with the arrival of delegations from several hundred points along the route additional plans for the collection of the necessary $10,000,000 fund have been drafted.

The directors also discussed the arrangements for the dedication celebrations on the night of October 31 at every point along the proposed highway, and the discourses to be delivered by the clergy on Sunday, November 2, taking the life of Abraham Lincoln as a text. Enthusiasm is growing to the bubbling over point in every State to be traversed by the proposed highway, and donations of sums ranging from $5 to $10,000 are pouring in.

Numerous good roads meetings are to be held through the West within the next few weeks in connection with the Lincoln Highway. At Central City, Nebr., on October 8, there will be a good roads congress, with delegates present from many Western States. The Lincoln Highway Association has accepted an invitation on the part of the congress to be represented, and A. R. Pardington, vice president, will tell of the actuating force behind the Lincoln Highway Association and its purposes in furthering a transcontinental route as a memorial to Lincoln.

After leaving Central City Mr. Pardington probably will also appear before the business organizations of Omaha, Clinton, and other cities.
