PAGE FOURTEEN THE PHAROS-TRIBUNE and LOGANSPORT PRESS, UM3ANSPORT, INDIANA SUNDAY, NOVEMBER 10, 1957 Tunnel To End Bottleneck, Worst In The Area By LOUIS G. PANOS BALTIMORE Iff)—They're about to take the wraps off the new Baltimore Harbor Tunnel, ending a motorists nightmare and mark- 117 miles ol approaches and is in- 'terchanges. On them are 46 bridges with a total length -of 3% miles. Each ot the 21 tunnel sections is composed .of wo seel tubes ing the realization of an engi- .. — -•- u , neor's dream. ,- about 36.feet in diameter and 300 Like a king-sized shotgun, the'f lt>n S> j oinedu fide b V side, double-barreled tunnel in its first! , rnsy , were . lau nched like a ship, year will send an estimated 12 I. twed , to lne ' unnel slte and sunl < million vehicles whizzing through ^ Place under concrete ballast, what used to be the biggest traffic bottleneck on the East Coast. After its Nov. 30 opening, you'll be able to travel through the nation's sixth largest city in five minutes flat. You'll stop just once—to pay the 40-cent tab at the south end of the crossing. You will buzz at a 55-mile-an- hour clip through .the world's only twin-tube tunnel laid in- an underwater, ditch, a 1%-mile pipe between the heavily industrialized sections of Canton and Fairfield. 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 th*e 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 Divers fitted giant pins linking each section to the next, and the joints were sealed with huge con crete collars. Each tube provides two lanes of one-way traffic. Ventilation, handled by sets of huge fans housed in three-story buildings at each end of.the tun nel, is automatically controlled on the basis of carbon monoxide tests made around the clock. 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 j.'acil- DIAL 5144 ; Pleasant Hill Greenhouse Kewanna K1EWANNA—The Prairie Grove church celebrated the second anniversary of the new church building with an all-day' meer.ing and carry-in dinner last week.

But Oviatt hasn't collected a penny in pay since he took office more than 10 months ago. The reason is, his re-election last November was contested by the man he defeated in the vote count, and a civil suit on the issue, still is pending before the Indiani Su- prme Court. Until the high court rules, Counly Auditor Ed Sauer is withholding Oviatt's $4,400 annual sal- cry and Oviatt is keeping hands : handy.' off $5,600 annual fees he is per-' milled to retain to supply the rest of a $10,000 annual pay guarantee. Oviatt was elected treasurer in and said Oviatt was treasurer until a court ruled otherwise. Bchme sned and a judEo held that Behme should be declared elected. Oviatt appealed, ami a filing period for writlen briefs is now in effect. The high court might ruie just about the time Oviatt finishes his first year of serving without a salary. Oviatl, who isn't wealthy, said he was "thankful I haven't had to mortgage my house." He credited his wife Loin'enia with "managing" household affairs so the family could get along, but Oviatt said a World War I pension check also came in "mighty A 1952 constitutional amendment increased the terms of county treasurers from two to four years and limited the number of terms incumbent could serve. Oviatt was barred by terms of a state-attorney general opinion from seeking reelection in 1056, 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- Mr. and Mrs. Ralph Kreamer and sons spent the weekend in Ypsilanti, Michigan, with Mr. and Mrs. John :Lauder and family.

Poland, which under its Communist leader Wladyslaw Gomulka is fighting to pursue its "separate road toward socialism," is likely to get important new credits soon. But aid to Yugoslavia may be chopped clown 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. Balance Has Tilted But James W. Riddleberger, U.S. ambassador to Yugoslavia, has been' ordered back to Belgrade to try to find out just where Tito is '- heading, ing character or social adjust-j in the view of Washington offi- ment. | cials, Tito has been a little too He called hockey "the most I friendly toward Soviet Russia in degenerate sport in l.hfe 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 use in sport and recreation activities themselves. "It's ridiculous to say running will contribute to character. Running where?—alone a back alley or cm a cinder track? Running with what motivation — to win a prize, for the joy of running, or from a cop?"

In doing that, Tito gave valuable support to Russia. He enraged the West German government, which immediately broke off diplomatic relations with Yugoslavia. He also antagonized the United States, because the recognition set a dangerous precedent which might be followed by other countries and thus make it harder to bring' about the reunification of Germany. West Germany had threatened that it would break relations if Tito accorded the recognition. AMBULANCE Complete First Aid and Oxygen Equipment Ph. Day or Night recent weeks. That does not mean that there is any belief that Tito will again put himself under Russian domination. He is too smart for thai. But where he is supposed lo be preserving a balance between . Russia and Ihe United States, the balance jias titled toward Moscow. Poland tried to get 300 million dollars in aid from the United j 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 bis determination lo 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 lhat before long Gomulka will announce the abolition of compulsory deliveries of agricultural products to the government. He has accepted a recommendation by an off icial" economic council for big changes in economic planning and management. These recommendations i n v-o 1 v e the granting of a great measure of freedom to Polish industries to run their own. business without interference.
