annoyance has been encountered In the

Contractors Want to Extend Agree

Will Not Have It.
According to statements made at the
city hall some of the paving contractors
are making overtures to have the execu

had difficulty in getting material promptly,
particularly crushed stone, and have had
to cope with a shortage of teams and
"No contracts will be suspended while
good weather lusts." declared City Engi
neer Rosewater. "About two-thirds of the
paving und r contract has been put down.
The remutnder principally is asphalt, most

them that postponement will not be countenanced."
