The proposed ordinance would ban through use of non-designat-ed routes (primarily west Blairs Ferry road) to all vehicles over five tons not involved in “farm-to-market” traffic.
The council, which had given; the ordinance first reading April

CENTER POINT — The town council has changed its regular

The ordinance needs three readings for final passage. It would then become effective after proper publication.

‘Long-Haul Traffic’ “We’re not after farm-to-market traffic, we’re not after local business traffic,” Bruns said. “We’re after long-haul traffic.”
Bruns contended that the council also might find the Blairs Ferry ban overly-hard to enforce if Cedar Rapids was not ticketing truckers on its section of the Blairs Ferry-Edgewood road shortcut.
Enforcement Snag Cedar Rapids officials said earlier this month that Edgewood road is not a truck route under existing city ordinance, but they have been having enforcement problems and are

not shuffle, deal or even cut the cards. This didn't keep Merlin from making some really astounding plays.
There was nothing astounding about his king of diamonds lead against three notrump. Anyone likes to lead from king-queen-jack-10.
Lancelot ducked. Merlin continued the suit and Lancelot had to win. He promptly played the ace of clubs and continued with the jack.
Now Merlin went into a trance. When he came out of the trance he had figured out what to do. He went up with his king and led a heart.
This line of play was the only way to defeat the contract. It showed that Merlin had figured out exactly what Lancelot was trying to do or had seen the peerless knight’s hand in his trance.
Had Merlin ducked the second club, a third club lead would have set up two tricks In dummy. Had he cashed his diamonds, Lancelot would have discarded his queen of clubs and unblocked the suit for dummy.
