(NEWS Staff Photo) Last Joint Is In City With Atoka -By GEORGE GURLEY Early Wednesday afternoon a small group of men stood around a raw hole in the earth northeast of Tupelo. They watched silently as a huge crane gently eased a piece of pipe into the "cut." The pipe was painted a brilliant yellow. There was a good reason.

On July 25, a fleet of huge trucks-began moving_the joints of pipe out to their loca- tion on the line.
