This letter, dated December 30, 1952, from United States (US) Senator William Langer to McKenzie County Auditor Arne Tollefson, references their recent correspondence regarding highway construction, and includes the reply Langer received from Commissioner of Public Roads Thomas H. MacDonald regarding the question of possible federal funding for a proposed road. MacDonald's reply indicates that federal funding may be possible for four of the seven miles of proposed road, though the state has so far not requested federal aid for those qualifying miles. Langer recommends that Tollefson take the matter up directly with the State Highway Department.
Langer adds that he has also contacted Colonel R. J. B. Page of the Army Corps of Engineers, Garrison District, regarding the matter, and will contact Tollefson as soon as he has further information.
