some residue from the $200,000
jointly ralied by the federal gov

10 miles of grading calls for
$158,828 according to the con
' tract let this spring to the W. H.
Pnekett company. Two bridges
must be constructed out of the re
mainder of ' funds: one over
Whitewater creek at an estimated
cost of $20,000 and one orer
Boulder creek at a cost ranging
- from $5000 tK$10.000. .
These, expenditures will leave
a balance of about M ,00ft fer ex
tension of the road beyond White

'the present construction contract
the road can be pushed on by the
same contractors without calling
for new bids, the grading to be at
the same price per yard as the
10 miles now -under construction.

When 5 Wounded
NEW YORK, Aug. (AP)
Tony Trobino. a shifty-e y e d
young man, who confessed he was
a narcotic racketeer, admitted, to
police today the shotgun slugs
that killed one child and wound
ed four other children in , Har
lem's Little Italy recently, were
aimed at him. Treblno told them,
they said, that he snatched up a
little child and crawled into a
hallway to get out of the line of
fire : ' ' ' '
, And then, they said, he related
that, after the gnnmeji'a car had
sped away leaving five wounded
Children lying, on the sidewalk,
he leaped unhurt, into his .own
car and- escaped. ? - 1 1 -
There were two versions of
Troblno's story of the battle.
One, given out by a detective,
was that Trobino used the -child
as a human shield, as he crawled
to safety. The other, by a high
police official, was. that Trobino
drarsred the child into the hall
way not to escape injury himself
but to save the little one from
"Let's give the devil his due,"
the official said.
Used by Gunmen
The automobile used by. the
gunmen, Trobino said,, belonged
to Nicholas Martello, known as
"Bulldog" Martello, of Astoria
Queens. .He did nOt 'see the gun
men, he said, but admitted he
had been in the narcotic racket
