This was predicted yesterday at a Joint meeting of the Escambia and Santa Rosa county commissions by R. J. Patterson, representative of Johnson, Drake Piper, northern engineers. Asks Support The meeting was called to consider several phases of the project on which county support will be needed. Patterson asked the boards to extend his firm's franchise for the Pensacola bay bridge.

During the 60 day extension the boards granted, his concern expects to wipe away the final obstacles in the way of starting work on the project, he told the board. The bay bridge would be of concrete, and the sound bridge, affording access from the northeast would be a creosoted timber structure. The latter would eventually be turned over to the two counties for maintenance. Money Assured Patterson explained to the boards that financing for the projects has already been assured, contingent upon six matters in which the counties involved would take part. These are: to get an act of Congress covering, the Santa Rosa sound bridge, lease or deed of lands to be used for 'the amusement park, low valuation on the sound bridge, con-, necting road links, cooperation in obtaining rights of way, and adjustment of legal technicalities in connection with the preceding matters.

The representative was assured that both counties would cooperate in any way possible in all these phases of the development. Banker Coming An assurance that Johnson Drake and Piper expect to push the project as rapidly as possible was contained in Patterson's statement that equipment for building the bridges will be in Panama City by June 1. He added that a representative of Harriman Co, New York bankers will be in Pensacola within the next few days, and will remain here until actual construction is under way. The Pensacola bay span will be a toll bridge. The sound bridge will be free.

Among the amusement features the company plans to install on the island will be hath houses, a casino and other typical seaside resort facilities, the boards were told.
