An unusually attractive little bulle
tin about highway bridges has just
been issued by the state highway
commission. Its title, "Modern
Bridges for Illinois Highways," is
suggestive, as the reader will fin a
who will look over the excellent
cuts with which the bulletin is pro
fusely illustrated. In fact the whole
story is told graphically by the pic
tures. There are 26 pages of illus
trations and but five of text, so that
if one will give but 15 or 20 minutes
the entire bulletin may be read.
As stated in the introduction, the
object of the bulletin Is to encour
age the building of better bridges.

I show in sharp contrast the difference
between the old stylo, flimsy high

small concrete culverts. The bulle
"The difference between a well de
signed modern steel bridge or a sub-
j stantial concrete bridge and what
may be now styled out of date, flimsy
steel bridges is too apparent to be
lost oa even a casual observer. And
when is added to this physical su
periority the fact that these durable
and safe structures have often cost
no more, it is easy to understand that
the bridge work undertaken by Ihe
commission would rapidly increase.
Even in those cases where the first
cost of a properly designed and built
bridge is (as would ordinarily be ex
pected I more than may be necessary
to obtain a less substantial and less
durable structure yet no real saving
is made by the latter. Any saving
must be made at the exnense of s:ifet3
and durability. Less steel must be
used, wood doors substituted for con
crete, tubes or steel legs with plank
or thin sool liar king built in place j
of solid, durable, concrete abutments

steel legs, and wood hacking, offer

solid concrete foundations set deep

"It is the practical demonstration I
of these points, the result of observa- !
tion by ihe users of good and poor!
