Does this mean that what had been 1 rpromised after purchase under terms of the state act ! passed several years ago after all is to be a more expended wait? If we remember right at the time the C & O bridge Iwas bought it was urged in Covington that the three spans be purchased together At that time it was said i i-that the state did not want to attempt to sell too large ian amount of bonds at one time Now the contention -iis that if the bridges are purchased singly bond buyers -will not bid while there is a prospect of some bridges be-ling freed ahead of others Hew Inter-City Route Needed rE proposed establishment of a Crosstown-Belt Line bus route over the Veterans Memorial Bridge and 'linking Covington and Newport has been defeated by unanimous vote of commissioners of the latter city Pro- tests against the plan were too numerous i The fact remains that there is need of speedy and 'more convenient transportation between Newport and Covington Some arrangement to provide a bus route over the new bridge via Fourth street in the two cities ‘should be made Society IN Ft Thomas Your Party Club Meeting or Journey The 1938 production of the com- Johnson Post No 93 held its March hlned Junior and Senior Dramatic meeting at the home of Mrs Vir-Clubs of Highland High School Ft I ginla Kitchin with Mrs Beitha Thomas will be presented Thurs- j Albert presiding day evening April 7 i After a short business session According to the traditional custom of the clubs three one-act plays will be presented Versatility characterizes the plays which represent both comedy and tragedy “Romance Is a Racket" "High Heart" and “Trusting Place” the latter by Booth Tarklngton are the titles of the sketches : Miss Marguerite Moery capable Veteran director of amateur dramatics will be assisted by Miss A vice White and Mr J J Boucher members of the high school faculty Mr Gordon Bugle of this city is chairman of the Arrangements Committee for the biannual formal of Lambda Lambda Chapter of Sigma Chi to be held Saturday from p m until 12 o'clock midnight Saturday night in the gymnasium of the University of Kentucky : Dr and Mrs John I Pythian of Riverside parkway Briar Cliffe have returned after a delightful West Indies cruise and stay In Clearwater Fla j The auxiliary of the Robert D j I 1 1 Williamstown !
