The work on the south jetty has

raised by the Port of Siuslaw, and
about 1500 feet of the long pier has
been completed. It is very solidlv

weighing up to ten tons each. This
is being done with the money raised
by bonding the Port of Siuslaw.
The government has appropriated
$250,000, and $50,000 of ibis is
available foi immediate use. The
contract, however, for the who!»-

of the government appropriation art

It is expected to take three years t<
