pride," observed Frank B. Riley,
chairman of the Bridge Committee.
"Clarke County, with an assessed val

proud by voting $500,000 to assist the
project and I anticipate that there will
be no difficulty In inducing the rest

an assessed valuation, more than 20
times as great as that of Clarke, to do
their share. The fact that the state

As fast as the sections arrived from
