AVENUE B from Page One if there was any possible way the work eould be ear f led bfi during the winter, The sttglneefs explained that satisfactory work could not be performed ifi this type of soil while it is wet And muddy. The contractor was plagued with bad weather almost from the beginning of the job last spring but some of the delay that prevented him from com* pleting the work on schedule was the replacement of water and sewer lines that had not been planned originally. His contract covered replacing some sewer lines and lowering some water lines, After this part of his job had been completed, it was discovered that there were some additional sewer lines in bad condition that would have to be replaced before an expensive street was built over them, This additional sewer work took 5 weeks time and ran the job into fall and winter rains which stopped the work, The Mayor says that the delay has caused all kind of rumors, among them that the contractor had gone broke and the job could not be finished, He said that none of this was true, but that, in any event, the contractor was bonded for the full amount of the contract and the work would have been completed anyway. He said that the City Directors realized that this has been a terrible inconvenience to everyone and that it was natural for people to be upset and many rumors started about what is happening. The contractor and the City Street Department have tried to keep some available routes open so that people could get to and from their homes and places of business. Except for damage caused by heavy loads on the by-pass routes, for the most part they have been maintained so that traffic could move. He said that while there has been a lot of inconvenience, that the patience and understanding of a great number of people in this area has been most comforting.

Tuesday, April 23,1968 A REDOUBTABLE from (Page One) 1935, when she lost both her mother and her husband, George Booth, a petroleum engi* neer* Childless, she dwells alone now In a flat near Piccadilly Circus, the Times Square of London. Here is her philosophy: "I never pined for roles Inev- er got. That's why I'm looking so well. There's nothing eating at me. It's very aging to go through life carrying a burden, and thinking you should have done something you didn't, "I'm a great admirer ofllving -not grumbling. I think that grumbling brings nasty things into your life. One of the ways not to look your age is not to grumble or overeat or over- drink. "When I go for a walk, I feel I should pay for the privilege of It. I believe gratitude is a very creative virtue. The more tilings you are grateful for, the more you'll find worth your gratitude." Then, with a crisp but kindly smile of dismissal, she rose and said: "I don't really know me. We never really know ourselves. But I really have nothing else to say now. I think you've torn me limb from limb." Get more for your money by helping our colleges bridge the financial gap between what they receive in tuition and what it costs, them to educate a student.
