As work is carried on at night As Well As throughout the Day the barges Are brightly illuminated and How the a after me could have crashed into one of them is something of a mystery. So severe was the damage to the yacht a 37-foot Cabin Cruiser that a big Hole was Torii in its Hull and it Sank before the occupants could a t their Street clothing. They were rescued by the Crew of the Barge and then went to the Burlington police station where they reported the sinking of the boat and got an automobile to take them to Philadelphia. The boat was raised wednesday and taken to a Boathouse on Nesh Aminy creeks for repairs. None of the occupants gave their names except or.

This order which amounts to approximately $500,000, is in addition to the Large number of planes now on contract for the government and is evidence of the Confidence of the government in the product of the Busy Bristol Plant. I More than 1200 men Are nov employed at tin Keystone Plant three times the number that was working there a year ago and there will be some additions. A night to be is Busy and the work of Tho Plant is now Well organised and production is speeding up.
