DEAR DR. GOTT: Last year, I experienced what I thought might be a "silent heart attack." I had chest pain that extended up to my jaw and ears with a feeling of pressure, etc., that lasted for about two minutes.

In 1916, the United States Congress considered the state of America's roads, and found them severely lacking. They, therefore, proceeded to pass the Federal Aid Road Act, in which $75 million was allotted over a five-year period to be given to the states to create a system of paved roadways which connected their cities to each other, and eventually, to their neighboring states. In fact, officials of the Savannah Automobile Club (SAC) had already sponsored a fact-finding tour of the state's roads in the summer of 1914. Starting in Savannah, the group caravanned across state to Columbus.
