of the Great Lakes Construction
Company of Chicago.
The contract, awarded for $2,781,-
000 calls for completion of the first
section, to accommodate about 1,500
prisoners, in 425 working days.
The entire project covers a 10-
year building program, an expendi
ture of about $12,000,000 and a peni-
tentiary to accommodate 5,000 pris-
oners to be drawn from the north-
eastern section of the United States.
The builders’ first task was grad-
ing of the site by removing from
eight to ten inches of the top soil
over the 26-acre area, jurisdiction
over which has been ceded the fed-
eral government by Pennsylvania.
The wall, which will surround the
tract, will rise 21 feet and will be
eight feet below the surface. Esti-

sand; 60,000 tons of cut stone, and
30,000 tons of other stone.
Wells are being dug to provide
adequate water supply, The Read-
ing railroad has run a two-mile sid-

telephone lines are being strung

There could be no better illustra-

According to a survey by the Trav-
elers Insurance Company, the
ing cause of accidents in +1980 was
failure to give right of way, which
accounted for 15 per cent of deaths
and 31.5 per cent of injuries. Sec-
ond was excessive speeding, which
was Feshulisible for 21 per cent of
all accidents, and third, driving on
the w side of the road, which
totaled 16 per cent.
Higher speed is a natural result
of improved roads and cars. But
the other two primary causes of ac-
cidents—which together accounted
for 27 per cent of deaths and 47.7
per cent of injuries—amount to
