Rourke, chamber secre tary, petitioned: The recent installation ,bf an aerial in the tunnel on the Bay Bridge has created a great deal of interest in our town. As you know. our main thoroughfare to Oakland and other parts of the Bay area is the Posey Tube. "Daily through this tube thou sands of automobiles enter and leave Alameda. Since the recent installation on the Bay Bridge many people have asked why an aerial could not or is not installed in the Posey Tube.
