The opportunity is now present for the completion of the hard surface road between Martinsville and Fieldale, a link urgently needed for the good and progress of out city. At present a plan is on foot whereby the city of Martinsville guarantees $13,400.00 on the project, provided the citizens of the city subscribe $6,000; the total cost of building the road being $19,400.00. We are gratified to say the response to the appeal for funds from some quarters has been exceedingly good, while others have a tendency to lag behind, and a great many yet to be heard from. There is no question about the importance and necessity of building this piece of hard surface road; its urgent need being recognized by all of us - - and, THE QUICKER WE RAISE THE MONEY, THE SOONER WE GET THE ROAD. The time to act is NOW - - it is simply a case of PUTTING UP or SHUTTING UP about the bumps, broken springs, etc., and the otherwise terrible condition of this road.
