CONCRETE ON
RIVER BRIDGE
ROUTE ALL IN
Motor Club Issuss Statement
That Traffic Will Open
About July 10.
The new concrete pavement on
Northwestern avenue across the new
■White River bridge, up the once fa
mous “Michigan HiU,” is now com
pleted, according to a statement is
sued today by the Hoosier Motor
Club. The new thoroughfare will be
opened to traffic about July 10, the
delay being due to the seasoning proc
ess required.
The motor club states that this
work will open up the Michigan road
north, leading from South Bend
through Logansport to Indianapolis.
The section just paved has been closed
.o traffic for neerly two years. Tho
new bridge is a five-span structure of
concrete and has a full width road
way, concrete sidewalks and con
duits to permit of cluster lighting or
other illumination. The bridge bears
the name, “The Centennial Bridge"
on a bronze tablet, which also bears
V niiae* of the county commission
ers.
The motor club also announces
that the full width of the pavement
between ML Jackson and the Na
tional and Rockville roads, at the
west edge of the city on Washington
street is now open to traffic and an
almost impossable stretch of roadway
between good city and good suburban
V-avement eliminated. Inasmuch as
tourist travel from east to west is
Very heavy, especially at this sea
son. the benefit of this smooth gap
Is apparent.
Construction work on the National
highway Just west of the Marion
County line has blocked this route
between Indianapolis and Plainfield,
the Motor Club states. The con
crete work has been completed east
cf Plainfield for more than a mile
and is proceeding steadily toward
the Marion County pavement west
of Bridgeport. It is understood the
National road west of Plainfield is
also under construction through Put
nam County. “Other gaps still
farther west are also under construc
tion so the National road is not avail
able for through traffic between In
dianapolis and Terre Haute. The
Xnoto,- club is routing traffic by way
'of' Rockville and on to Montezuma
and then south over the Dixie Bee
Bine through Clinton into Terre
Haute. From Terre Haute via Mar
shall, 111., tdie National road is paved
to St. Douis. By autumn this paved
road will be open from St. Louis to

CHARLESTOWN, W. Va., June
24.—The Rev. Janies E. Wilburn,
Baptist preacher of Blair, West
Virginia, today stood convicted of
murder in the second degree in
connection with the killing of De
puty Sheriff John Gore in the Lo
gan County mine war last summer.
The State next will try John, the
pastor’s son, also charged with
murder.
SHIFTY SAND IS
POOR ROAD BASE
Boulevard Is Found Built on
Unstable Material.
Shifty sand does not make a good
base for a boulevard, H. H. Tall, as
sistant superintendent of parks
agrees.
For years holes have continually de
veloped in a strip six feet wide and
seventy-five feet long In Fall Creek
boulevard near Thirtieth street. Mr.
Tall sought the trouble.
Park employes found beneath the
surface a material resembling quick
sand. A ten-ton roller sank into the
hole and they had considerable
trouble getting it out.
The surface and sand base were
removed to a depth of three feet and
anew base of concrete and asphalt
slabs covered with gravel constructed.
"With some more work on the surface
the trouble will be eliminated, Mr.
Tall believes.
Peacemaker Blessed,
Likewise Bruised Up
“Blessed Is the peacemaker," but he
is also unlucky, and Grant LtghtfooL
negro, 901 Colton street, admits this
today.
Lightfoot was acting as a peace
maker yesterday and attempted to
separate Foster Locks, negro, 933 Col
ton street, and Elmer Davis, negro,
812 West Twelfth street, who were
haring a fight at Brooks and Eleventh
streets. Lightfoot was cut on the
arm in his efforts to stop the battle.
Locks was arrested on charges of
assault and battery and drunkenness,
and Dav.s was arrested on the same
charges and also was charged with
resisting an officer.

Plan to Eliminate Every

Greater Saving.
To the editor of the Time I no

Indiana school system have made a
marvelous discovery that between
$400,000 and $500,000 can be saved
yearly by the elimination in our high
schools of one teacher in every fouK
To do this It Is planned to rotate the
teaching of certain subjects In dif
ferent years. An amazing discovery,
this!
I wish to suggest that the elimina
tion of one-fourth of public Job hold
ers who have no connection with our
educational system would result In
a still greater saving and meet with
more popular approvaL
Governor McCray’s administration
points with pride to this great pro
posed educational economy in the
coming campaign and I understand
that from letters already sent out by
the State committee that this subject
is considered safe ground for cam
paign speeches.
The taxpayers woujd be Interested
further In knowing of the great econo
mies which resulted In the $1,300,000
deficit of the State general fund, the
magnificent proportion spent for over
head of millions for highways, as well
as a few other proposed savings in
the actual running expenses of the
State government.
