IDEAL ROAD MS
IN EXPERT HANDS
Lincoln Highway Association
Announces Collaborators j
in Final Design.
The Lincoln Highway Association (
has announced the names of the ex- i
perts retained to collaborate in t Iw :
final detailed design of the ideal see- I
tion which is soon to he built on
the Lincoln highway, the funds be- j
ing provided by the I'nited States
Rubber Company.
The letting of the contract for
the construction of the ideal section
has been placed in the hands of Lockwood,
Greene & Co.. engineers, of
Roston. Mass., among the founders of
the Lincoln Highway Association.
This firm has been engaged in the
building of large industrial and commercial
projects of note throughout
the country. One of its noteworthy
contracts was the building of J'orkship
Village, housing thousands of
employes of the New York Shipbuilding
Company at Camden. N. J.
Promlnriil engineer In Charge.
In charge of the final detailed design
of the ideal section, collaborating
with Lockwood. Greene & Co..
will be W. G. Thompson, consulting
highway engineer and late state
highway engineer of New Jersey.
Air. Thompson is well known throughout
the country as an acknowledged
authority in highway building. He
was for ten years a member of the
corps of engineers which, under Gen.
Goethals, built the Panama canal
Prom 1912 to 1914 Mr. Thompson was
supervisor of construction of the
Balboa terminal at the Pacific end
of the canal, being in direct charge
of wharf and pier, railroad and road
construction. In 1911 he was sent to
Colon and made superintendent of
construction of the Crilobal coaling
plant, at the Atlantic end of the canal.
ji was ai nit;
Gen. Gt'oree W. Goethals. then consulting
highway engineer fur the
state of New Jersey, that Mr. Thompson
was appointed state highway engineer
of New Jersey, in 1917, having
full charge of and responsibility for
the reorganization of the department
to accord with modern standards, and
the planning, designing and construction
of the New Jersey state highway
system. Upon this work Mr.
Thompson was engaged until July,
1920. S
Mr. Thompson has been from the
first a member of the Lincoln Highway
technical committee, which decided
upon the general specifications
for the ideal section, and is intimately
acquainted with all the phase3 of the
educational plan.
Beantifientlon Plans.
That the beautiflcation of the ideal
section may be of the same high standard
as the construction work on the
road itself. Jens Jensen of Chicago,
prominent landscape Mtfiitect, lias
been engaged. Mr. JetBcn completed
extensive studies in his profession
abroad, coming to the United States
from Denmark in 1884. He is a governing
member of the Chicago Art
Institute, a member of the board of
directors of the Chicago Geographical
Society, president of the Friends of
Our Native Landscape and a fellow of
the American Georgraphical Society.
The detailed designs and plans prepared
for the section will be made
public as soon as completed and the
actual construction will be undertaken
as -Boon as possible.
Uniting the Family.
From the Detroit News.
In Swabia they have a curious custom
aimed at a reviving harmony in
troubled homes. Whenever a married
couple, declaring incompatibility of
temperament, seek divorce, instead of
appealing for conciliation to a magistrate
who may or may not be a
psychologist, and may or may not
be blessed with persuasive elegance,
the authorities shut up husband and
wife in a tower, allowing them only
one fork and one plate between
them. The result of the experiment
is then patiently awaited.
The story goes that, nine times
out of ten, at the end of a few hours
of this inconvenient regime the two
are released from the tower perfectly
reconciled. Material necessities have
drawn them together and effaced the
sentimental misunderstandings. And
they return happily to their dwelling
to breakfast more comfortably in
the peace of the reconstituted home,
whose imperfections they no longer
perceive.

Wicks?No, it's worse. His wife
won't let him wear glasses. They

too plainly.
