Contractors Edwin H. and Lynn A. Brua, jr., paving North Penn street, Hollidaysburg, for the state, the Altoona & Logan Valley Electric Railway company and the borough of Hoilidaysburg participating, completed the pouring of the concrete today, there remaining nothing to do in connection with the completion of the job but to clean up, fix the approaches of the intersecting streets and permit the paving to cure. Work started yesterday morning and continued until long after dark last night leaving only half a block and the intersection at Garber and Penn streets to be poured today. Traffic inbound now veers to the left and proceeds into the borough by way of Garber and Jones street. State authorities will say, following the usual beam tests, when the thoroughfare will be thrown open for traffic. In order to expedite the curing of the paving where the final pouring was done, a new brand of cement, at least so far as use in road paving is concerned, was utilized. It is known as twenty-four hour cement and through its use there, the possibility of opening the entire thoroughfare with more promptness than otherwise, will be furthered. It Is said to be somewhat in the nature of an experiment, but highway builders say it has proven highly satisfactory in tests. Brua Brothers have two other Blair county contracts upon which they will begin work the first of next week. One Is the state-aid extension of the Plank road, from Good's lane south of Llyswen to Alto-Reste burial park, and the other is the stretch between McKee's Gap and Roaring Spring. The contractors' equipment is being placed at the base of the operations for immediate start. The state-county job ia a small one but the other while not of great length is a hard and expensive piece of concrete work. It will cost approximately at the rate of $100,000 per mile. The route of the highway is 1 changed considerably and with all the excavating necessary and the building of two new bridges, it entails a tremendous expenditure in comparison with the average road contract. The Hollidaysburg job, just completed, included the ripping up of the double' tracks of the street railway company and the replacement with a single track and a turnout at Highland Hall square; the installation of new flood sewer inlets, made necessary by changes in the grade and the cutting back of the corners of the intersecting streets and the relaying of service water, gas and sewer pipe lines.

TO THE VOTERS OF THE TWENTY- FIRST CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT OF PENNSYIVAN1A: I desire herewith to express my sincere lhaiikr, for the splendid support given me in my candidacy for Congress at the recent Primary. By reason of very serious illness which confined me to the hospital for three weeks immediataely preceding election I was unable to meet personally with the voters. However, I shall try to see as many as possible between now and the November election. " I desire to pledge to all the people of the district faithful and efficient service in the future, as I have endeavored to render in the past. Very sincerely yours, J. BANKS KURTZ.
