The newly com­pleted traf­fic study made by a New York con­sul­tant firm seems to as­sure that the par­al­lel Chesapeake Bay Bridge will take pri­or­ity over a north­ern or south­ern cross­ing.

Gov. Spiro T. Agnew met ear­lier this week with top state high­way of­fi­cials in an ef­fort to draw closer to a pri­or­ity de­ci­sion on the three Chesapeake Bay bridges and the sec­ond Bal­ti­more Harbor tun­nel the State Roads Com­mis­sion has ob­tained the au­thor­ity to build.

* ** Quick work by a State Po­lice of­fi­cer and Kent Is­land fire­men held the dam­age to a min­i­mum when Thomp­son’s store caught fire late Satur­day night at Do­min­ion.

Thomas Thomp­son, who lives over the store, was not home at the time. The fire was con­tained to the back por­tion of the build­ing un­der a stair­way.

* ** Thirty per­cent of the reg­is­tered vot­ers of Queen Anne’s County turned out Tues­day to cast their bal­lot in the spe­cial Con­sti­tu­tional Con­ven­tion elec­tion and name Carter M. Hick­man to the one del­e­gate’s seat from this county.

It was a close con­test be­tween Hick­man and prom­i­nent Cen­tre­ville at­tor­ney Clay­ton C. Carter.
