L'ke a king-sized of an engi- shotgun, the 117 miles of approaches and 12 interchanges. On. them are 46 bridges with a total length of 3% miles. Each of the 21 tunnel sections is composed of" wo seel tubes, about 36 feet in diameter and 300 feet long, joined side by side.

To drive from one of these sections to the other today you need 40 to 55 minutes—depending on your route, traffic conditions and the timing of up to 50 stoplights. You also need the patience of a parson and the nerve of a riverboat gambler. The tunnel itself represents about one-third of an ambitious 130 million dollar project to erase the tangle of North-South mainline traffic. The other two-thirds went into an elaborate system of approach roads and interchanges designed to siphon express traffic off all major highways before it even gets near the downtown section. They'll feed it into the tunnel, drain it off at the opposite end and disperse it on the edge of town, in some cases as much as three miles beyond the city limits. Altogether there are more than DIAL 5144 Pleasant Hill Greenhouse made around the clock. I Like the 7%-mile Chesapeake Bay Bridge opened in 1952, the construction of the tunnel was financed by a state bond issue which includes all state toll facilities.

S. Reviewing Policy On Poland, Yugoslavia The United States is reviewing its policy toward Europe's two "independent" Communist countries. In both instances, the review concerns economic aid. Poland, which under its Communist leader Wladyslaw Gomulka is fighting to pursue its "separate any doubt that he committed a serious blunder when he recognized the East German puppet regime last month. In doing that, Tito gave valuable support to Russia. He enraged the West German government, which immediately broke off diplomatic relations with road toward socialism," is likely', Yugoslavia.

He called hockey "the degenerate sport in the world." He is a former football player, coach and official. He said aside from the possible development of skills-of questionable use and -perhaps physical development, there is little pse in sport and recreation activities themselves. "It's ridiculous to say running to get important new credits soon. But aid to Yugoslavia may be chopped down because of President Tito's recognition of the East German puppet regime. A Polish mission opened negotiations in Washington last week for credits of up to 205 million dollars largely in surplus agricultural products and machnery needed for industrial development.

That does not mean that there is any belief that Tito will again put | himself under Russian domination. I He is too . smart for that. But where he is supposed to be preserving a balance between Russia and the' United States, the balance has titled toward Moscow. Poland tried to get 300 million dollars in aid from the United States earlier this year. After long negotiations, aid totalling 95 million dollars was granted in June. Now Poland is trying to get the remaining 205 million dollars. About everything that Gomulka has done in' recent months indicates his determination to keep Poland free from Russian domination. He is also making some drastic changes in domestic economic policies. Tito's Serious Blunder It is considered-certain that before long Gomulka will announce the abolition 'of compulsory deliveries of agricultural products to the government. • He has accepted a recommendation by an official economic council for big changes in economic planning and management. These recommendations involve the granting of a great measure pf freedom to Polish industries to. run their own business without interference.

Oviatt was barred by terms of a state attorney general- .opinion from seeking reelection in 1956, but a local court ruled in his favor in a suit, Oviatt defeated Democrat John Behme a year ago, but Behme contended he was the only "qual- fied" candidate and that despite the fact he didn't get as many votes as Qviatt, he should be declared elected. County commissioners refused to accept Behme's bond and said Oviatt was treasurer until a court ruled otherwise. Behme sued and a judge held that Behme should be declared elected. Oviatt appealed, and a filing period for written briefs is now in effect. The high court might irule just about the time Oviatt finishes his first year of serving without a salary. ~ Oviatt, who isn't wealthy, said he was ''thankful I haven't had to mortgage my house." He credited his wife Louvenia with-"managing" household affairs so the family could get along, but Oviatt said a World War I pension check also came ia "mighty handy."
