Algiers Viaduct Closed Wi
To Traffic
WI
The Newton street viaduct has
been found to be in such a dilapi
dated condition that it is no longer
safe for vehicle and street car traffic,
according to Supbrintendent Burgis 7
I of the South New Orleans Light and ma
Traction Company. The viaduct has bra
been closed and barricaded, and the' Nu
a cars crossing it re-routed. Ho
Superintendent Burgis advised Cap- I
tain James Dimitry of the Eighth
Precinct in Algiers of his opinion of Gil
the viaduct, and the latter took the Ri
necessary steps to have the structure°
closed. Assistant Fire Chief Lafoux a
a also was notified and ha issued
m orders that fire apparatus avoid the w1
viaduct. TI
Is The street ears which have been
ly creasing the viaduct will run to t
Elmira street and discharge their ls
a, passengers there. Passengers will t
k. cross the viaduct on foot and will a'
te be picked up at the Whitney street t
rs end by cars operating on a switch
'i back on Whitney street, which will M
-. carry them to their destination with
t. out payment of further fare.
°e Engineers will investigate the con
dition of the structure and will pre- la
pare a report on the steps necessary
to make it safe, it was said.

This announcement was made at a I

Who Is The Prettiest
Girl In Algiers?
This question is one that has been
discussed long and often. Just who
is Algiers' prettiest girl is not known,
but the Algerines will have an oppor
tunity to find out when the Druids
name the winner of their beauty con
test at their Jack O' Lantern festival
on Sunday, October 1.
Ernest C. Hunt, playground ath
letic director, has been placed in
charge of this and other contests and
games to be staged on that day.
"The beauty contest should arouse
quite a lot of interest in Algiers,"
said Mr. Hunt. "I have noticed that
Algiers is full of pretty girls, and
I really think that if a percentage
check was made on the number of
pretty girls here it would stand out
above any other place in the country,
not even barring those northern Ala
bama towns famed for their beau
ties. With this point to our advan
tage the judges, no doubt, will have
their hands full when the time comes
to award the prize to the prettiest
girl. The rules of this contest are
sfmple. Just send your name and ad
dress to me in care of Albert Prados
at 906 Verret street no later than
Sept. 30. If possible, send a photo.
This will give the judges an idea of
what they are to expect, and besides
it might help you. A handsome prize
has been selected, but the Druids are
keeping its nature a secret until the
night of the award. This is the first
contest of this kind known in Algiers
!and some girl will have the oppor
