Steel Shortage Delays Bridge Work Piers and abutments or the Pequea Creek Bridge on Highway 222 near Refton — _poujed last October — still await steel that has been on order some time. Here is a scene, " taken by a Staff photographer, just as a dynamite blast was set off on the 'east side of the roadway just north of the bridge. At the left is the narrow old bridge, scene of innumerable accidents, on a sharp corner'that will be eliminated by a sweeping curve alongside the Raymond T Witmer farm. According to Joe Dunkel, construction superintendent for J. D. Eckman, paving contractor, the small bridge at Weaver's corner has been completed, the steel in place, the concrete set. Otherwise grade work on the road project, which will eliminate several treacherous corners, is progressing satisfactorily, the paper was advised. (Lancaster Farming Staff Photo)

Increased chicken and egg production is forecast with January chick production at an all-time record, up 4€ per cent from the corresponding month in 1955.

Values dropped from $28 40 per head in January 1955 to $20.80 in January 1956; total value dropped in the 12 months from $16,586,000 last year to $13,354,-000 this year, against the ten-year (1945-1954) average value of $20 million.
