The Wayne county commission's, .rvev has revealed that in the township system there are 65 hridcf" of 20-foot span or more, and vi hridces lens than 20 feet, to be rrk(, over. Practically all of the bridges are in need of early replace- "sumpter township, with 80.1 miles highway, has the greatest mile-st in Wavne county, and Gratiot township with six-tenths of a mile f township road, the least. Red-ford township has only 12.3 miles to turn over to the county. Situation In Wayne During the last year highway Improvement and road repair taxes levied in the Wayne townships azercfrated $301,734.27, averaging shout one mill on the respective assessed valuations. Brownstown township led with a hichway levy of $48,848.97, the smallest levy being $5,000 in Van Buren township. Wayne county's state aid in 1932 will approximate $;3 000, with graduated increases as more roads are taken into the county svstem. The McNitt act is an outstanding step in highway development and seeks to halt the waste heretofore existing in the maintenance and Improvement of township roads in Michigan," Mr. Hlnes asserted. "These highway costs have mount-d to about $9,000,000 for the state at large last year. "It Is hoped that bringing the township highway systems under rountv and state control will cut this burden to approximately the amount of state aid, thus relieving real estate of a considerable local tax burden."

BURT RYAN'S HEIRS GIVE UP SITE Estate Probably Will Be Insolvent The estate of the late John J.

The former owners agreed to accept a loss after they received a payment of $3,500 in stock. The property transfer was authorized by the probate court.

Friends to Give Him 'Message Shower Detroiters who were friends and acquaintances of the descendants of Judge William Austin Burt, inventor of the solar compass and a figure of note in the development of Michigan as territory and state, are asked to join in a "message Bhower" to celebrate on July 18, the ninetieth birthday of Judge Burt's grandson, Horace E. Burt, now living at 82 Bailey avenue, Patchogue, Long Island, N. Y. The Detroit Free Press has received a letter from Mr. Burt's daughter, Mrs. E. A. Andrews, of Patchogue, asking Its co-operation in this novel observance of her father's birthday. Oldest Central Graduate Horace E. Burt was born In Detroit, was graduated from Detroit Central high school and the University of Michigan. He is the oldest living graduate of Central high school. Seven of his children are living. They ask that greetings be Bent to Mr. Burt at the Patchogue address. Judge Burt came to the territory from the east in 1824, settling in Macomb county. He became a member of the territorial council and later an associate Judge of the circuit court. His renown was gained, however, as a surveyor and inventor. In 1830 he perfected a "typographer," the patents of which credit him with being the inventor of the first mechanical typewriter. Later he invented the solar compass, which has saved the government immense sums in the cost of making original surveys. The equatorial sextant is another Important invention by Judge Burt. Worked for Government For many years he and his sons. Including Austin Burt, father of Horace E. Burt, were employed in government survey through the present states of Michigan, Wisconsin, Iowa, Illinois and Minnesota. Judge Burt was associated with Dr. Douglas Houghton in the geological survey of the upper peninsula which, after 1840, revealed the wealth of iron and copper ore which has long since made Michigan a noted mining state. In his fraternal affiliations, Judge Burt was first master of the third Masonic lodge founded in Michigan. He made his home in Mt. Vernon, Mich., where he died In 1858, his body being transferred later to Elmwood cemetery, Detroit.

A forum in defense of the eighteenth amendment was conducted today by Dr. Robert Corradinl of New j York, executive secretary of the j Alcoholic Information commission, j before delegates of tha Baptist ! Young People's union. j Asserting that charges of the ! wets that alcohol consumption had I increased under prohibition were j unauthentic, Corradini said that ! America consumed in 1928 only 40 j per cent of the amount of abso- lute alcohol used before prohibition. I Benefit Are Seen "When a law eliminates 60 per cent of the alcohol that goes down the human throat for beverage consumption," said Corradini, "it would certainly appear better than any regulatory law such as in effect in Canada and Sweden." He gave statistics to show that alcoholic psychosis, alcoholic mortality and sclerosis of the liver had decreased greatly under prohibition. Corradinl said that liquor, 'Tike opium, to be used for medical purposes only," was the one system that would work. Corradinl ohjected to the wets blaming the drys for bootlegging. Thrwe who have been drinking the bootleggers' liquor and giving ' them their wealth are not drys," he j aid. "The bootleggers can't be ; charged tip on our side of the lediter" He denied that America was suffering from any crime wave due to prohibition. N V. S. Has Advantage "In crime, America is better off than any other country, except perhaps England," he said. Responding to queries from the young delegates, Corradini defended the boys and girls of today against the charge of alcoholism, declaring that more youths of 14 to 16 were drinking under the old saloon regime. "The only difference was that when these youths went into the saloon and spent the money they had earned as laborers, they considered themselves men and were regarded as such," he said. "Now boys of that age are In the high schools where they belong." CLUBWOMAN'S RITES MONDAY Mrs.F.W.Lichtenberg Is Dead at 85 Funeral services for Mrs. F.

He served as councilman for 27 years and was a member of the house of correction commission for 30 years. At the time of Hazen S. Pingree'a campaign for mayor, Mr. Lichtenberg also was urged to run for the office.

She was a member of the Michigan League for Crippled Children, the Auxiliary to the Salvation Army Rescue home, the Zoar society of the German Protestant Orphan asylum, the Ladies' society of St. John's Lutheran church and the Florence Crittenton circle.
