The Yanks liavo practically ilic same ball club that won the pennant by. 17 gamis last year and 'then knocked down Die Ueds four straight in the World Series.

It's not exactly foolproof. Charlie Ruffing noiv 30, has to lilt, the 21-garae mark again lo make the Yankee staff sturdy. If Ruffing (lowii'l go, the Yanks may have to do some first-class worrying for n pitching ace. Preparing for pitching headaches. McCarthy plans to carry 12 inomids- nien.

I The $'(0.050,000 road will be opened formally July 4 with ceremonies at ivlilcli President Hoosevelt, who has shown much interest in the project, is scheduled to speak. The highway consists of divided doubled lanes ol concrete spanning valleys and tticams over i;ia bridges ranging up lo COO feet, ni length, and through seven sub- montane tunnels, which average nliout n mile cued in length. It utilizes the roadbed and six of the partly-bored tanners of the I "Dream Rnilroad" started by \v. II Vanderbilt and Andrew rjarncglc only to be abandoned SO years ago. Plans to build ; t railroad along the route had been formulated and discussed sporadically for 50 years before (he VunderWa-Carnegie venture and the project was broached a number of times since Ilien, but. it never foi far beyond the survey stage. The 1037 Pennsylvania legislature passed a bill creating ihc Pennsylvania Tiim- pike Commission and authorized it to finance and construct the road. Federal Funds' Provided Initial difliculucs in financing Ihe project were overcome when Ihe Federal government made the necessary funds available. PWA made an outright, grant, of $29,250,000 at Ihe express wish of President Roosevelt, and the RFC purchased 540.800,000 worth of the 3Ti per rail bonds, ivhieh arc to be •ecured by tolls and amortized vithiii 30 years. The turnpike is to become part of the commonwealth's highway system when the bonds are redeemed although the slate itself does not participate in any form of guarantee. Under the tentative tariff stritc- :ure, average toll rates for passen- degrees; no other highways cross i il ul grade—they span it. or go be- Head Oiirler News Jaycees To Sponsor Pilots Opening Game CARUTHKRSV'ILLE.
