HEW TRAFFIC RULES
IS ASKED BY
Leaders of Directorate Assert
Regulations Are Four Times
as Long as New York's.
Becretarv William J. Ejnon. of the
"Washington Board or Trade, today
wrote a letter to the Commissioners re
questing that the date on which the
new traffic regulations are ordered In
to effect be postponed for one month.
The letter was written at the direction
o: the board of directors, who have se
erely criticised the new regulations
lor secral reasons.
The board of directors has also In
structed the street tratf ic committee,
of which Le Roy Mark Is chairman, to
conduct a series of public hearings on
behalf of the Board of Trade in the
.Board or Trade rooms, and these near--lngs
will begin early next week.
Say They're Too Long.
. Leaders in the board's directorate
have objected to the new regulations on
the ground that they are too long, as
sertlnc that they are almost four ilmes
as long as the traffic regulations or
the city of New York: because they are
.not uniform with the regulations In
other cities that have proved successful;
and becaus many or the clauses are
nothing more than police regulations.
It Is held by opponents to tne nw
regulations that If they are to prove
effecthe they must be raade as brief as
possible and should contain no clauses
except those pertaining to the regula
tion of traffic.
It was understood by Chairman Le
Roy Mark that the Commissioners
uould grant this committ: the privilege
of Investigating the new regulations be
fore they were promugated. This was
not done. It is asserted, and President
Droop then asked the Commissioners to
krant representatives -of the Board of
Trade a hearing on the matter. The
Commissioners replied that no hearings
would be granted except in writing.
To Have Hearings.
"it is stated that in case the Commls
aloners refuse the request of the direc
tors for a postponement of the date on
which the regulations are to take ef
fect from February 1 to March 1. the
Board of Trade will conduct hearings
anyway In an effort to hae the ob
jectionable features of the regulations
TUie senii-monthly meeting of the exec
utive committee of the Board of Trade
will toe held In the Board of Trade rooms
Monday at noon. Fourteen aplicants

Clerk Tore Pieces From Bills,
Then Pasted Them Together
A novel fraud scheme which a trusted
woman counter In the Treasury Depart
ment confessed she had been practicing,
was reealed today by officials. The
woman would tear small scraps from
different bills which she handled, until
she had enough pieces to paste together
and form a complete bill. This she
would substitute for a bona, fide bill.
The woman was discharged from the
sen Ice, but will not be prosecuted.
Forty dollars, the total of her embezzle
ments, was deducted from her salary.
