With the Dravo people handling (ho bridge building it means that the construction work will go ahead \viihout the delays met sometimes due to financial 'difficulties. In mnriy Instances where local companies with numerous subscribers start on such UK projects the movement after progressing to certain stages falls due to luck of tiutioient fumls. All this is to l«' avoided with sue!) a firm' as the Dravo Company backing: the project, 'r. 1'ack suys.

The piers for the C. O. bridge at Sclotoville were.built by the Dravo firm as were those for. the Iroriton-RuseeU bridge. They are contractors on the Ohio river dam below Vnnceburg and have had big bridge jobs In and nruml Pittsburgh nnd in -the East. These successful^ undertakings were pointed out by Mr.'Pack today to show the Dravo Contracting' Company is well qualified to'undertake the bridge building tn.sk.

The Dnlton Auction Bridge Club will meet on .Tuesday afternoon with Mrs. William R. Sprague on Second street. district. In proof of this they cite the fact that Kearns and Calvert hare undoubtedly struck up an offensive and defensive alliance. This was shown by the placing,of Reams' 'closest local pcUUicil leader as chairman o_£ Calvert's city campaign committee, and the calling-in o£ Kearns to. moke the main speech lat the committee "re-organization. · « · " It is expected that the plan is to bend every-effort to re-elect Calvert.-In the meantime Kearns has. been :' given a strangle .hold on the , local Republican city organization, .whether.

Marvin can -be.a good little boy arid help Calvert' in his campaign, but' that will not save, him from the noose that'has been hung iip : for. him.

The Culvert-Toting- rgha city gnng is.to do all it can with its country cousinn in the effort to trita McCowan and thus remove another thorn from Reams' side. Altogether the dashing young Mayor of 'Portsmouth baa -'dipped into deep waters politically. He apparently has become convinced that his salvation lies Svith the Kearns old gang, that t h e votes of the Kearns opponents nre negligible, and tbot so long' its Kearns uants the job no Scioto county man need apply. .
