In fact, it was so dark one man next to the other could scarcely see him. The work is decidedly dangerous for those men. They are counted as they enter the screen house and at different times the chief engineer, personally, makes an inspection, to see they are safe. The concrete is pumped from a plant overlooking a huge cavern- like hole where the main plant is to be erected. At this plant is a huge mixer, operated electrically. When properly mixed and heated, the concrete forced by the Pump- crete through pipes at a fast speed. The pipes extend to the screen house where the mix is discharged men in charge of the Pumpcrete plant and a staff of engineers and clerks. There is plenty of steel work to be done and when the proper time comes the booms will swing huge girders to be placed by man. And Everything that is being used in the mix. stone, gravel and sand, is coming frpm this district; likewise other materials that are needed and is available in this district Is beine secured.

(International Newi Service) HABRISBURG, Dec. application of the new 44-hour week law to Pennsylvania municipalities and boroughs will cause budget in- creases totaling millions of dollars, local officials charged today In re- questing the state industrial board for a year's "grace" period with which to conform to the act. At a conference with the board, the second and third the boroughs, in turn testified that bringing municipal workers under the act would throw budgfets out of line and necessitate levying of increased taxes, Besides the 12-month "grace" period, local officials applied to the board for complete exemption for policemen and firemen under the 'act. They said the political subdivi- sions they represented were willing to place their other workers under the law within the year. Speaking for the third class cities, Walter A. Greenwood, of Coates- ville, told the board the municipali- ties were deprived ol "their day In court" because Attorney General Charles J. Margiotti had not ruled on the status ol the municipal workers until a week ago. Yuletide Peace Program Will Be Offered Thursday Young People's Choir Giving Program At Pint Baptist At P. M. At p. m.
