Full-TextIDAHO'S HIGHWAY IS BOOSTED HERE Blaine Stubblefield of Lewiston at A. A. A. Office in Interest of Famous North and South Road. Blaine Stubblefield of Lewiston, representative of the North and South highway through Idaho, is in Spo- kane and will make his headquar- ters at the Inland Automobile asso- ciation, where he is giving informa- tion to tourists. "The rugged beauty of the Salmon River mountains in central Idaho, said Mr. Stubblefield, "is attracting many tourists over the new North and South highway via Lewiston, Grangeville, Whitebird and joining the Oregon trail at Weiser. Road Drops 10 Miles. "The 10-mile spiral descent from the Palo.use plateau, to Lewiston, in the Snake Biver valley, 2000 feet below is one of the well-known scenic points fcf the west, A similar spiral, known as the Winchester hill, ascends from Culdesac, 25 miles east of Lewiston. to the 3000-foot elevation of Camas prairie. "A view that never fails to impress the traveler is beyond Grangeville at the brakes of the Salmon River canyon, where the highway begins its descent to Whitebird, the scene of one of General Howard's battles with Chief Joseph's warriors. The Buffalo Hump country, the high knob of Camp Howard, the distant gleam of the ice-covered Seven Devils and the vast depth of the Salmon River gorge burst into view at the sudden topping of the divide. "The road follows the main Salmon 32 miles up to Riggins, where it turns off to the Little Salmon, leads through Council, Cambridge, Midfvale and joins the Oregon trail at Weiser. "The North and South highway proper extends from Eastport, on the Canadian border, to Boise, in southern Idaho. Work is in progress at many points north of Potlatch. From Potlatch to Lewiston is surfaced and in use. Two or three short stretches between Lewiston and Weiser remain unfinished, but they are passable without difficulty."
