McCulloch Oil Corp. bought the 140-year-old bridge years ago at public auction for Us tons of granite blocks were dismantled and shipped miles for reassembling here in the origi- nal form. With haulage and reassembly, the entire project will cost more than 57 expenditure that worries Robert McCulloch, company president, not a bit. His firm hired Robert Beres- ford, 31, a London engineer, to supervise reconstruction of the bridge.

Studd will be accompanied by his sword-bearer, mace-beaver and the town crier. The Royal Artillery's regimental band and a toil of the Royal Scottish Regiment will head a parade of some participants in a march across the bridge.
