New Bridge To Be Ready By January 1 Steel Arrives Work Resumed At Pinesbridge Beacon Falls Correspondent's Phone 6743 The new $80,000 span over the Naugatuck river at Pinesbridge is expected to be completed and open to Traffic by Jan. 1, according to officials of the State Highway Department. Steel for the span, held 'up for several weeks because of the national i-iteel strike, .has been re^ ceived and work has been resumed. It is hoped that the span will be ready for its concrete roadbed by the end of this month. 'After the concrete is poured, the state requires 28 days to dry before the span is oip'ened to vehicular traffic. State Rep. Clara O'Shea and town officials are still disturbed by action of the highway department in constructing the bridge before first correcting the situation on the west side of the span, where a trestle of the New Haven Railroad permits only one-way traffic Mrs. O'Shea refers to the trestle as a "rabbit-hole." The bridge is about 30 feet wide and at the west end the roadway tapers to a narrow roadway through the 12-foot wide trestle. Considerable traffic makes use of the road as it is a direct route to Oxford, Southibury, Rimmon road and West road. The span, with no overhead construction^ teplaces a span washed out in the floods of last New Year's Eve. A temippr- ary Bailey Bridge was used until work was started on the present span.

Father Keating delivered a short sermon on Ihe miracle of Our Ladv's appearance at Fatima, Portugal, May 13, 1917. He said, ''Tho apparition at Fatima is not a myth, it is not a mere story. It is a fa-:t proved by the Miracles performed on Oct. 13, 1917. It is a fact admitted by the presence of 70,000 on that occasion, many of whom caine to scoff but went away in awe and belief. The church is slow to ap prove of miracles ar.d' apparitions so it took a number of years before Pope Pius XII approved of this devotion." The ceremony was completed with the Benediction of the Mosf Blessed Sacrament by Father Taylor.

Welfare Board To Act On Land Transfer To Guard Progress is reported in the matter of conveying borough owned property on Rubber avenue to the state of Connecticut for the purpose of constructing a National Guard garage and armory in Naugatuck. . jtf|pM General Joseph P. Nolan of the CNG was in the borough Saturday morning to inspect a tract of land on the southwest portion of Meadowbrook Home property and today stated that in his opinion the land is suitable for the proposed construction. The general said that the project must be under contract not later than Dec. 31, and that all formalities must be completed much in advance of this date. Warden Harry L. Carter and Borough Engineer Charles D. Curtiss were at the proposed site this morning, and at present Mr. Curtiss is laying out maps showing the »xact location of the garage site. The CNG desires land measuring about 250 feet in depth and between 600 and 700 feet in length for the construction of a garage, and eventually an armory and' drill' field. Board to Act The board of public welfare will act upon the transferral of land at its meeting tonight at 8 o'clock in the town hall, and it is expected it will transfer the land to the board of warden and burgesses with a recommendation that it be given the state. The state requires that any gift of land be free of any encumbranc- ics, and Borough Atty. Joseph E. Talbot has been instructed to make a title search and draw up deeds for the transaction. Warden Carter said today that complete title searches of the land were made when the borough sold some of the Meadowbrook property to the W. J. Megin, Inc., and it is his belief that a title search on the property now under discussion "will not be a very big job." During the previous transaction a cloud was removed from the property mt'tPIp !|gy( gieuj Hol( m'titl Ah Army engineers are expected at the site this week, providing the borough board at a special meeting tomorrow acts favorably on the transferral. After approval is given by the Army engineers, and all legal matters have been completed, both the governor and attorney general must approve the transactions. CANASTA .
