ST. LOUIS (AP) The Gateway Arch, memorializing the pioneers and pointing the way to the future of America's heartland, was finished yesterday with the insertion of the keystone in a drama 630 feet above the Mississippi River bank. "This is the greatest memorial since the Eiffel Tower," said 77-year-old Barney Dickmann, the former St. Louis mayor who started the idea in 1933. "I'm glad the darned thing's finished."
