(^—Michigan officials say the new 100-mll- lion-dollar Straits of Mackinac Bridge will do fabulous things when it is completed In 1957. George E. Bishop, secretary manager of the Upper Peninsula Development Bureau puts It this way: "The bridge will bring the two Peninsulas of Michigan at least IWj miles closer together. It takes an! average of two to three hours to: cross the Straits of Mackinac by. jerry boat, if you include waiting in j line. That's equivalent to 100 miles j of driving. Hence, the bridge will act like an accordian—squeezing the two parts of the state closer together." And Bishop thinks the Upper Peninsula's tourist industry, already worth 60 million dollars yearly, will double with the increased traffic. Junk Report CHARLESTON, W.Va. (VP>—State Police Supt, R. W.
