IJIal NEW STRUCTURE TO REPLACE OLD ARCH An old stone arch bridge at the east end of the Muleshoe culvert, along the William Penn highway, which for many years carried traffic on that highway over the waters of Blair's Gap run has been entirely torn away to be replaced with a newer and larger structure to accommodate the new William Penn highway. After the structure was blasted a few days ago, a steam shovel was put Into service and the debris was quickly removed, following which the channel at that point was deepened and widened for the new concrete bridge, work on which is being pushed rapidly along by the bridge builders. Work on the forms was to be started today and It Is expected to have them finished and ready for concrete to be poured when the concrete mixer, now engaged in road-pouring, reaches that point within the next couple of weeks. This is the last portion of a 185-foot concrete slab bridge which extends the entire length of the Muleshoe culvert and for a short distance on both ends. Five sections have already been completed and traffic has been passing over them. Work on the ilnal section had to be held up until the other part of the structure could be used for traffic, the old bridge just recently razed, carrying traffic while the work was going on. While the part of the bridge now finished is straight, the portion to be finished to complete the contract is curved, the inside of the curve being approximately 30 feet, and it is, planned to pour it in two sections, using special quick-cure cement, making it available for use after about seventy- two hours. The bridge contract, let late last season, was a separate contract from the road contract held by the Clark Brothers company. Very little work; was done before the close of the working season last year, but good headway has been made this year. The bridge is 40 feet In width and entirely covers the stream through the arch.

THREE MORE ENTER FOR ALTOONA RACE Wilbur Shaw, Dave Evans and Zeke Meyers are the latest entrants for Aitoona's annual 200-mile Flag day auto classic a week from Saturday. Their signed entries were received at the speedway office today. Shaw, who was born in the shadow of the Indianapolis speedway, came Into "big time" racing last year when he drove In the Labor day event here. Following his local bow,'the Indiana- polls youth "went out to conquer new worlds" and he did. He won seven straight 100-mile events, leading the pack on the Toledo, Brldgeville, Akron and Cleveland tracks. Shaw has been recognized as one of the greatest dirt track pilots tp come out of gasoline alley in recent years. Evans and Beyers are a pair of the few remaining veetrans. Evans announced that he was through following the June classic here last season and confined his activities to a few minor dirt track events. He went into the executive end of the game, operating the Woodbridge, N. J., half-mile board events. Meyer, one of those Philadelphia speedsters, has seen his hottest action on the dirt tracks of the east. Although he says he will never retire from the game, Meyer has eased up just a bit in the last few years, forsaking the "big time" that brought him laurels in years gone by. Shorty Cantlon, second place winner at Indianapolis and holder of the world's speed record for four-cylinder racing cars, has also signed an entry. Cantlon will drive here the same mount he piloted on the Murdoc dry lake bed of Lancaster, Calif., for the record and tooled through the 500 miles at Indianapolis to finish behind Billy Arnold, this year's Hoosler winner. The Tipton oval is the scene of added activity this week. Painters, carpenters and others are busy whipping the mile and a quarter saucer, in shape for next week's speed event. A new coat of paint is being applied to the entire plant and many changes are being made on the site. It is expected that all work will be completed by the last of this week. Ticket sales are mounting daily, according to word at the speedway offices today, giving every indication that one of the largest crowds in the history of the track will invade Altoona. The first of the race fraternity is expected this week with most of the drivers and their cars to reach the city on June 9. A race meeting is scheduled at Detroit on June 8, a dozen drivers' being entered. YOUNG MEN ACCUSED OF INSULTING WOMEN SUBURBAN DAY TOMORROW I'RICE AAVARDS MADE.

Kitzlnger, elected member o£ Hollidaysburg borough council from the First ward last November, was sworn in by Secretary Robert B. Smith and took his old place with the borough solons last night. Mr. and Mrs. Kltzinger spent the winter In Florida, going south before the Inauguration 3ay, the llrst Monday of January. Mr. Kltzinger is chairman of the finance committee of council and his first task will be to look after the settlement of some bond issue matters. While not heavily Involved, the borough has some debt and it likewise lias some money with which to make some payments and. not being due, it may not be possible to pay even If desired. Brother council members know Mr. Kitzlnger will guide the financial ship aright. A matter which has been under contemplation for many years was under discussion last night. That s the dealing with the heirs of the late M. S. Hunter for the front of their premises on Walnut street, occupied as a planing mill and lumber yard. The original planing mill was built on ground purchased from the Bell estate. Later the section was plotted and the mill Intruded on the newly laid out thoroughfare some ten or more feet. Little as it seemed to matter then, H mattered a lot when the section of the town built up. Now it is a menace to travel and an eye sore. Several years ago, by agreement, council passed a resolution whereby the Hunters were to be paid $750 for the land, the deal to be consummated the following year when the money could be provided in the budget. The deal was never finished and when a committee of council waited on tho Hunters recently, Councilman Walter Dodson reported last night the price had been raised to $2,000. Further consideration is to be given the matter. Bills were ordered paid in the sum of $3,678.85. President Thomas Lawly was in tho chair. MERCY HOSPITAL CASES. Admitted. Ruth Moyer, Portage.

Members of the Blair County Motor club, at their monthly meeting: at the Penn-Alto hotel last evening, heard an interesting and informing report of the activities of the recent Pennsylvania Motor Federation convention presented by Charles F. Skelly, official delegate from the local club. Mr. Skelly outlined the high points of the convention program to the local club members. A total of sixty-six applications for membership in the Blair county club was received and acted upon favorably at the meeting. Complaints were heard of many motorists who were falling to observe the stop sign rule and the matter is to be certified to the city authorities. The club also framed a communication to the commissioner of motor vehicles asking that another headlight focusing drive be launched here to put out of existence glaring headlights. Commenting upon the motor federation meeting in Allentown late last month, Mr. Skelly reported in effect: President S. Edward Gable of the Pennsylvania Motor Federation had a very interesting and enlightening report to offer in connection v'th the innual convention. Among other matters Mr. Gable discussed some outstanding topics of Interest to every motorist and citizens generally throughout the commonwealth. Regarding the matter of legislation, it was pointed out, since the state egislature will be in session during the current federation year, Mr. Gable suggested that the organization express itself on major questions of taxation such as the gasoline tax, operator license fees and also on a safety responsibility bill. The extra cent gasoline tax which automatically comes off July 1, next, should not be reenacted, It was suggested, as the three-cent tax will produce ample revenue to continue the present road construction plans and n periods of depression new and unnecessary taxation should be opposed. Especially so is this the case when ample revenues are on hand, Mr. Gable contended. As for owner license fees, he said, the present 40 cents per horse power rate should have the endorsement of motorists. "Wo should not only oppose any Increase in operator license fees, but we should ask for a permanent operator's license Instead of having an annual nuisance o£ driver license renewal," he said. This scheme only gives banks a clerical task that is expensive from a financial standpoint. Better even a $5 permanent license feo than the present annoyance all around, the state head suggested. "Responsibility in accidents would mean more safety on the public highways, and therefore it becomes necessary that we support the A. A. A. safety resonsiblllty act, or a satisfactory modification thereof. Direct compulsory insurance," Mr. Gable contended, "would place a great flanancial burden on a largo majority of careful and responsible owners and drivers. To collect $40,000,000 or'more, from state motorists in Insurance premiums each year seems a punishment not warranted when practically the same results can be obtained by a safetyi responsibility measure that will make the careless pay damages or else get off the road entirely." Continuing tho state motor head advised that there i.s still much remaining to be done, also in carefully scrutinizing all construction of highways, repairing of highways and widening of same. "Legislation for 50-50 payment of land damages in the relocation, widening of and building of new roads by the state and county should be endorsed by the state organization," he said, "for in many Instances land damages thus inflicted upon counties compel an Increase In tax rate. With the state treasury literally gurgling over the money paid in by motorists, this hardship could bo solved." Attention also was called to the fact that the organized motorists must not relax their work in sign posting,, seeing that the proper guard rails are erected by those in authority, that bridges are safe for travel at all times and thut the necessary inspection of these spans is made tit Intervals, Tho matter of club magazines and publicity also was touched upon, tho matter of dissemination of enlightening information on all subjects of interest being emphasized. At the convention, too, there WHS a general resume of the. road und emergency .scrv- ico rendered on behalf of clubs to members of the organization, tills assistance being one of the high lights of the'organization's work.
