Germany.......A procession of Army vehicles led by Lt. General Keyes, rolls over the 2,000 foot stretch of the new highway bridge over the rhine into the American zone of occupation in Germany. The bridge, named in honor of the later General Alexander L. Patch, U.S. seventh Army commander is the work of U.S. Army Engineers. There are ample walkways to accommodate pedestrians between the French and American Zones. To complete the huge task, more than one-half million man hours were required. General Keyes performed the opening ceremonies on January 22nd.
