3 == r CA O 4 A Second Over-Sized Load from ADM moved through Mt. Pulaski April 22. The equipment is headed to Iowa. A third - and final - load moved through Mt. Pulaski the week of the 282 . There was a hold-up at the turn from McDonald to Vine, but the driver threaded his way onto Vine. An Illinois State Police Officer said that on the highway the procession can move at about 50-miles per hour. He said the unit is 16'-wide, highway lanes are 12'-wide, but with officers well preceding the  load, they are able to move traffic over to maintain that 50-milesper hour. Due to the height of the load, it cannot be moved on the interstates. The load was certainly a "tree trimmer" as it moved along Vine. Students at Zion lined the curb to watch the pas- sage of the load and were awarded with a horn "bamp!" from the driver.
