In addition to being the rJKht size, the home plan shown here has many other features that a good home needs. It is an efficient, easy- to-livc-ip. floor plan. The nine closets, full basement, and double garage gives it an abundance fit floor space of all kinds. Whether you have bicycles or gardening tools, there is space to store them in this home. Inside, there is a fireplace, an extra half- bath, fiwi a stopsnvinjj kitchen. Outside, there is a terrace. All of the rooms are generous in size, you won't be crnmped or crowded here. Yet for all its sine, this is a relatively economical house to build.

The state of Delaware Is footing the entire bill for the span, for the very good reason that the boundary line of Delaware extends to within a few feet of the Jersey shoreline.

There is a minimum clearance of 175 feet from the water to the lowest steel, all the way across the 1,500-foot center span.

The 120-mile turnpike and tlie bridge connect on the Delaware side to U. S. Route 13, the Dupont Highway south, on the Delmarva Peninsula with fe r r y connections across Chesapeake Bay to Norfolk and Newport News. Both routes 40 and 13 lead north five miles to Wilmington, and 20 miles farther-to Philadelphia. In the planning stage la still another important link, a proposed Maryland expressway along the eastern shore that will bridge the bay toward Washington. Ferry operations, from terminals a few miles south of the bridge, will halt when the bridge is opened. The state of Delaware is negotiating to purchase the ferry line 'and equipment, an dthe City of Baltimore has expressed interest in the ferry boats for possible use in a new' Chesapeake Bay service there. 15 Cent Toll Delaware Memorial Bridge travelers must pay a toll of 75 cents for pleasure cars and any vehicle weighing less than two tons.
