PASS IMPRACTICAL as goo00 Despite the fact that snow- clearing operations in Snoqualmie I Pass this Spring indicate the Sun- set highway probably could be kept o,pen all winter the highway department would oppose such a program. The risk of sacrificing the lives of adventurous motorists ,along the lonely mountain pass is so great that the engineers of the' highway department who are fa-i miliar with mountain conditions a year-round road never Scientific blending of the finest Eastern hard wheats with the choicest of Western wheats makes FISHER'S BLEND BRAND FLOUR su- premely good or every purpose qualmie Pass is at the rate of a / foot an hour and even: :ithout I any wind to cause drifting a mo- torist caught in such a storm would be snowed in before he could find shelter. ' He couldn't walk to safety after his automo- bile was stopped for there are no rescue stations along the road. As an engineering possibility the year-round road is feasible; as a practical thing engineers are against it, even if the question of cost did not bob up to defeat it. Improvements in the rotary snow plow and the storage of the ush plow on the summit so as to :begin road clearing operations from the top instead of the bet- Wm of the hill were the big les- sons learned from this year's work.
