To date no word has been received from the governor on this particular subject and it may be assumed that he stUl hat it > Under consideration. There is no state bridge joining the two parallel highways at this point. The state has built bridges •t Hillsdale. ProphetMown. Dixon. Oregon and is about to erect one at k Grand Detour. Trial a connection f,t this place between the two highways is a vital necessity is acknowledged. Will Cant BSO.m It Is understood that County k High way Engineer William Hauck "has already mode preliminary- stud- fcs and pians for the new bridge. The cost has been estimated nt approximately $250.000. In case the Itate refuses to build the bridge the County would, as Muted, pay 50 per Bent, the other half to be paid by Iterling township, or Jointly by Sterling and Coloma townshjps. Engineer Hauck's plans, it Is understood, are for a bridge with a I foot driveway, flanked on either .fide by an eight foot walk with guard Trails separating it from the drive, •uch a structure would easily care tor the traffic for a great many jpenrs to come. In case the state built the bridge. the cost would probably be conskl- rably more.

Adjustment Work to Be Done by Service 'Crew of 100 Men Sterling Elks Guests Of Anniversary Party Of the Mendoto Lodge MORRISON AND VKMITY NEWS B*|»rter, Robert H. Qffltt SI: SS9 To Keep Park Open Long as Possible Though at a Loss Park Board Unable To Decide Status On Bridge Matter Lawrence park and the Lawrence park swimming pool will be operated next year, even though at a loss. if It is humanly possible following Hie closing of the Avenue G bridge March 8. members of the Sterling- Coloma park board said today. It is possible that the bridge will remain open for foot passengers. even though condemned to automobile traffic. This remains to be seen. It Is also possible that arrangements can be made to keep 'the south end. from Rock Falls to the Lawrence park Island, open, even though the north end Is closed. The park board members are of the opinion that the people are enough sold on the park to make the trip by way of Rock Falls, even though It will require considerably more mile- It Is hoped that when the bridge Is under construction, one half will be left standing while the other is being built, so UY*t it will be possible to use, first one end and then the other. The matter has come up for discussion by the members of the board on several occasions. Until something more definite as. to how the matter will be handled, the board is unable to reach any conclusion.

In order that all of these places may haie continuous service it is necessary that the plant here be kept in operation to furnish each of the towns while the changes are being made The contractors are nearlng the completion of the installation of the pipe line from the big mains about 10 miles southeast of RocK Falls, to connect with the I. N. U. main on the Rock Falls-Dlxon road about fhe mties east of Rock Falls. This means that only five miles of new pipeline need be paid, and this will be finished in a short time. In anticipation of the natural gas service the I. N. U. last summer built two new pipe lines across Rock river, which will carry the supply to Sterling. It is expected that the adjustment of all gas appliances in Sterling and Rock Falls will be completed within three or four days after the change over to natural gas is commenced. Service crews of the company, numbering 100 men. who have been trained at a special sen-ice school, will be here to make the adjustments. Corp.
