NORTHWESTERN IELL TELEPHONE COMPANY A Share in the War Fund Is a Share in Winning the War hcGuires Build R> R. Fill Replacing 'High Bridge 9 (The Upper Des Moines is indebted to The Central Contractor, official publication of Associated General Contractors of America, for the above cut and the story herewith printed. Editor). Motor transport has done pretty well by itself in recent years and many enthusiasts are willing to predict that the freighters and Pullman cars of the future will operate in the clouds, but apparently the railroads aren't ready to sign them off yet as obsolete. Still, it will surprise a lot of folks to learn that the Chicago, Milwaukee and St. Paul Railway company is actually building seven miles of new line in this state. The illustration on the cover of this magazine reproduces a photograph of the work of M. T. and John T. McGuire of Algona on the project of a new line to run from Granger to Madrid by way of Woodward. It will replace the old more direct line which extended between Granger and Madrid and involved the crossing of the Des Moines river over the famous Old "Highbridge," a structure which has thrilled many a juvenile trackwalker and gave grandfather his first sensations of flying as the Milwaukee's yellow coaches moved over it with some caution. The n ew route avoids the necessity for a large bridge structure of any kind. Although the new line traverses a longer distance, the running time will be less inasmuch as traffic over the old Highbridge, which is 2,065 feet in length, cannot travel at a speed exceeding ten mile per hour. A spur from the line proper will be built into the Dallas mine between Granger and Woodward. Our illustration pictures four Caterpillars and scrapers, two patrols and two bulldozers at work on the largest of the line's fill, this one 64 feet high. The Me- Guires on this project work a single shift fo 12 hours per day and a crew of 14 men is employed on the job. The railroad's own crews will lay the ties and steel. Total cost of the project is estimated ot $300,000. 'It is anticipated that this new line can be put into service some time in November, after which the old bridge, constructed in 1882, will be razed. Since the McGuires have also been doing the grading work on nine of the 11 hemp plants being built in Iowa this season, they've had a lot of moving around to do. In addition, they did the grading on 1.296 miles of access road serving the naval air base at Ottumwa. John McGuire, in addition to managing these construction projects, also operates a farm and is producing hemp this year which will find its way into one of the plants for which he has done the grading and perhaps when it becomes rope, even onto some of the ships to be manned by men now traveling daily over the access road at Ottumwa. M, T. McGuire is presently living on and operating another farm in Kossuth county. The McGuire brothers have been members of the Central Branch, A.G.C., since 1923, shortly after the organization was founded in this state. John T. McGuire served as a member of the board of directors of the branch, representing the grading division, in 1937, 1938 and 1939. For several years the firm of Wesley McGuire Brothers was organized and McGuire made its headquarters at Forest City. The firm of McGuire Brothers was ' organized in 1914 but-now operates as M. T. and John T. McGuire. News Items of Burt Vicinity The Sewing Circle met last Friday afternoon with Mrs. C. S. Coffin. Mary Jane Winch's parents, who live at George, spent Sunday here with her.
