It has no name, only a number. .It's the best thing that has happened to metropolitan Boston since the bean got on the plat-'! with the codfish. « · answer to - this riddle? Ask any Bostonian and he'll tell you: "It's Route 128." This two-ply, limited-access highway around Boston was started in May 1946! The last short link of'the 63.9-mile artery is just now being completed to link it with'-a speedway from Boston to- Cape-Cod * * * * IMMEDIATE, TANGIBLE results to date include:- . 1.--200 million dollars in new industry. 2.--At least 15,000 new jobs 3.--15 multi-million-dollar industrial "parks" and more coming. 4.--Five major shopping cen ters. 5.--A new face for eastern Massachusetts. 6.--Property values have soared, both 'for housing and industrial and business sites.

Regional planners warn that results -here cannot be count ed on as proof of a magic formula. Route 128 was builf-a' the "right" moment. As a mat ter of fact, the aim ''· of the planners was simple--to ,speec north-south traffic by going around Boston's ancient* cow path streets and the clogged density, of the -suburbs. The plan was born at a time when wartime industry, *m'ostlj electronics, was hungry fo pace.' Wartime ' builders and evelopers of radar,,fire control ystems and underwater sound quipment were moving into he civilian market. : » » * « THEY HAD huge financial acking and were, bursting at the seams in 'cramped down- own'lofts and basements.. ' The new road,, toll-free, now nks new industry with scores f new real estate developments uilt in" the once-rural peri- hery of the defense metropoli- tan area. ,It has brought the labor .supply within · easy 'commuting range from, any point on the highway strip. , The "Golden . Arc," : as one publicist - . described, it, " has brought headaches, too. Communities which .did. not. reap the industrial harvest nevertheless found their "bedroom- population" arid.- "war baby" population booming. ; · . ' ,.. · ' Low-cost housing,. and consequently, low -pen-family tax revenue,, flooded classrooms and forced construction .of huge I new school buildings.'The building and teacher salary bills drove tax rates .sky. high, often as much as.60 per cent higher than - before the boom. .The cost of. police.'and fire protection also'soared out of proportion to the higher tax revenues. · *' * * ·* BUT THE ADVANTAGES far outweigh the hardships that are incidental to 'any form of economic progress. The road has proved to be fron- tier for progress, the basis for a new way of_ life.. · Not \only have manufacturers moved to "The Route," but doctors, dentists and professionals of all kinds have followed to put down their-roots. An insurance company is putting up an office building at one point. 1 . · ' · · Merchants of crowded Boston also took advantage of this trend.-by moving or "branching out" to -the wide-open spaces only 12 miles from town.

Mrs. Kay Johnson, 33, raise her children and keeps .hous from "a wheelchair to which sh has been confined since poli robbed her of the use of her legs and right arm. .' "I can iron and do light housework, like dusting and straightening up," Mrs. Johnson said cheerily. "My three children (Ron, 10; Dale, 6%;. and Donna, 4) keep me busy · enough," she added. ' "I draw up the shopping list and plan meals but I can't cook." ''Of course, Don '(her husband) has been a great help. He even cooks." MKS. JOHNSON'S handicap earned her the Polio Motner of the Year award for Cook County (Chicago). Mrs. Johnson was 'stricken in September, 1955, and spent almost eight months'in a hospital before she returned t o _ her eight-room, .two-story home. Her husband, a carpenter, made many alterations to thei house for her comfort. He" turned the dining, room into. a bedroom and built a shower room downstairs, and even added a room at the back of the house for a therapeutic pool. Mrs, Johnson said there was hope she eventually would be able to leave her, wheelchair and walk with the aid of braces, "I don't,go out as much^as I used to," she said, "'but then we entertain a lot at home." .

Study mathematics. UCLA officials report there is a .staggering- demand by schools and industry Wr college math graduates--and that includes girls. The UCLA Office of Teacher! Placement reports that' during! the 1956-57 -year it received 616' requests for teachers with, backgrounds in mathematics. Only seven math graduates- one a coed--was available to answer .the demand. · ' ' . . | Although industry drains off] the majority of math graduates; through more rapid promotions! and salary increases than of-' fered in teaching, it faces a 1 severe shortage of its own. -This is especially true in the mushrooming electronic computing field. Overall, in industry demand for math graduates is three times that of supply. Officials pointed out that salary discrimination against women is rapidly disappearing in-Jndustry as demand increases and women career mathcma'- I ticians prove their professional skill. - PlNBONjE; LOIN CHOPS SMALL LOIN CHOPS 89 LB $119 MARKET BASKET BRAND.
