Phone 734-4121 Highway Project ot Up for Bid MONMOUTH — Local officials here expressed Concern today over the omission of an area highway project from a list of those being bidded on July 31 which was made public by the Illinois Department of Transportation. Monmouth Mayor George Bersted said that the U.S. 34 bypass from 111. 164 west of the city limits to U.S. 34 southwest of Monmouth was excluded from the Department of Transportation's bid list covering 154 road improvement and maintenance projects with an estimated value of $76 million. The work on the bypass was put up for bid about two months ago, but there were apparently no construction firms interested in the project. .' Officials in the Department of Transportation's District 4 office in Peoria told city officials at that time that contractors were probably passing up the work because heavy spring rains might hamper their completion schedule. Bersted said, however, that the department officials assured the city then that the project would be put up for bid again and construction would begin this summer. Attention has been focused on the project because a proposed recreation area southwest of the community hinges of the bypass.

(UPI) — The 28th anniversary of the detonation of the first atomic bomb, an event which scientists said would "change the whole course of human history," passed almost unnoticed today. Trinity Site, located deep in the southern New Mexico desert near Alamogordo, holds little evidence of the July 16, 1945, event that sent the world into the nuclear age. Bunkers and buildings built for the test of the atomic bomb have crumbled into the desert. Ground Zero is now only a shallow depression in the desert floor. Tiny pieces of "tinitite," sand melted into a greenish-colored glass by the explosion's heat, still can be found around the area. I Weathered Sign Surrounding a stone monument at the point the bomb impacted is a fence that holds a weathered sign reading simply: "Trinity Site." On the monument is a plaque that reads: "Trinity Site, where the world's first nuclear device was exploded on July 16, 1945." The bomb was dropped from a 100-foot steel tower at 5:30 a.m. and, at the moment of detonation, a light brighter than the midday sun covered the surrounding mountains. Then came the shock wave that rippled the earth 30 miles away. It was followed by a deafening roar. The blast was seen hundreds of miles away. Three weeks later, on Aug. 6, the second atom bomb was dropped on Hiroshima. Three days after that the third fell on Nagasaki.- Man's destiny had been set on a new course. Dr. John Manley recalled the project. "We knew what we were working on,!' he said. "We knew the bomb, was going to change the Whole course Of Human history. "The intensity of the flash was enormous. It is something you don't forget." Dr. J. Robert Oppenheimer, who headed the project and died in 1987, said that at the moment of detonation he remembered an ancient Hindu quotation: "I am become death, the destroyer of worlds." Test Director Kenneth Bainbridge told Oppenheimer: "Now we're all sons of bitches." Miss Universe Contest Begins ATHENS (UPI) - The 1973 Miss Universe contest began Sunday with winners in tWo preliminary categories — most photogenic and best costumed. Rocio Martin of Spain, 19, was chosen over 60 other contestant for the award for the best national costume, a variation of a flamenpo gown. The most photogenic award went to Maria Moran, 20, of the Philippines, who also said she considers President Nixon the greatest person in the world. Judges in the weeklong competition include actress Ginger Rogers and New York basketball star Walt Frazier. as the African Methodist Church j President can commit troops to au- al consent to 120 days.
