1111 JiJlSMH IMMMlnUHHHIMaM THE EVENING WORLD, THURSDAY') MAY" 11, 1922. NEW TRANSIT PLANS, TO ADD 85 MILES. TO CITY SUBWAYS, GOST $21 8,t)00,QD0 (Continued frorn Fourteenth Page). hattan. Is to be a- four-track trunk lino running through 8fth Street and Fourth Avenue. In Brooklyn, over and under the East niver by way ot the Manhattan Bridge and tlio Whitehall tunnel, and via proadway and Sev enth Avenue, north. The southern (I -terminal ot this lino. Is already anp "V!v pllod with more tranches than the trunk tracks can properly accommo date, but the northern extremity has but ono collecting and distributing branch, tho two, track lino through SBth and COtb Streets to the Queens borough Plasa. Tho other two tracks of the trunk line aro dead-ended at Wth Street. lor this reason, work ward In tho morning and homeward at night, during the rush hours, only half of the capacity of tho Unp Is developed from the northern terminal. Passengers using tho llrooklyu sys tem aro, moreover, unablo to pass north of GDth Street without paying an additional fare at an Intcrborough station. It Is proposed, therefore, to build another two-track extension Jrom Seventh Avenue North under Central Park West, and the Park to 110th Street, and thenco via Seventh Avenuo to 155th Street and Eighth Avenue. A spur track for such a con nection has already been constructed. This extension would provide, In ef fect, another north nnd south lino for tho full length of Manhattan Island. It would relieve very materially the Ninth and Sixth Avenuo Llnos of the Manhattan Elevatod Company, aB welt as the Inox Avenuo branch or tne original subway between 110th Street and "the Harlem River. The Central Park West route would linoton ha rinv of the Sixth Avenue 3 s elevated lino could be removed from Another Incidental advantage of surface tracks upon Central Park West may bo moro readily removed as the subway would provldo vir tually tho samo service and tho re leased surface of tho street thereupon transformed Into a westerly park boulevard. The approximate cost of the Cen tral Park 'West-Seventh Avenuo ex tension would bo $20,500,000, and the tlmo consumed In construction throe and one-half years. ever, that another crossing to Man hattan should bq affordod through a new .East River tunnel, for the re lief from over-crowding of tho ex st ing Whitehall tunnel. If such a plan Is followed, It will Invotvo moro or less modification ot tho Nassau Street subway In Manhattan. Tho building of this lino, for which provts on ts mado In tho dual contracts, had not been undertaken, apparently moro or less by common consent, during tho eight years preceding 1921. Tho pres ent commission, upon its appointment a year ago, mado no change in" this situation, pending proper consldera t on of plans under which It might be linked with a tunnel of Its own or othcrwlso modified.' ,Tho present recommendations of the commission's engineers cover two alternative routes. ft' BROOKLYN CR0SST0WN ROUTE. Tho so-called Brooklyn Crosstown lino was originally projected as an elevated when tho dual system was laid out, but Its construction was de ferred because of local objection to elevated construction, and because of tho fact that the city's resources for tho more exper-'vo alternative of sub way building had then been exhaust ed. It 1b tho opinion of the Commis sion that tho lino should be built as a subway without further dolay first, as a means ot articulating all of the Tapld transit lines at present travers lng Brooklyn and Queens, so that any ono of theso can bo reached conven iontly and quickly from any other one; second, as a means of aocess to tho shore front of Brooklyn and Queens north of tho Navy Yard; and third, as a direct means of carrying passengers from Manhattan and . Queens to Brooklyn and Coney Island. Through Long Island City the line will follow Jackson Avenue. Through tho Oreenpolnt section ot Brooklyn, it will follow Manhattan Street, and thenco through Roebllng Street, WI1 llamsburgh, and by tho cutting of a new street, ot about three blocks In length, from Roebllng Strc t to Bed ford Avenue, and thence to a con ncctlon with the Brighten Beach Line at Fulton Street and Franklin Avenue, In lfs progress, it' would furnish points of transfer to the stations of all tho other lines H would Intercept the Broadway, Myrtle and Lexington Ave nue elevated lines, and the lUh 'Street-Eastern subway. The Commission has also In view a further connection hetwecn this line by way of Flushing or Park Avenues and Jay and Smith Streets, to the Borough Hall section of Brooklyn. Tho estimated cost of the lino as now proposed Is $24,000,000, and the tlmo to complete from th:co to three and one-half years. TO ELIMINATE "L" LINE. Each of these alternate routes would require, at tho start, the removal of tho elevated railroad from lower Ful ton Street, Brooklyn, thereby greatly Improving the most 1 ra p o r t a n t thoroughfare of that borough. Under either, tho Fulton Street tracks would bo dropped to a subway at a point at or near Clermont Avenue, and carried thence via Fulton Street, prlvato prop erty. Fort Greene Place, DeKnlb Ave nue, further prlvato property and Livingston Street to Sidney Place. From this point the first of the alter native routes would proceed under Groco Court and tho East River to Nassau Street, and thence across Park R'dw under tho presont Post Ofilco Building to a connection with tho Broadway Subway at City Hall, Man hattan. Under the second alternative tho line would run from Livingston Street under prlvato -property to Clin ton Street, and thence through Liberty Street and lower Fulton Street under the East River to Ann Street, in Man hattan, and across Park Row to tho main lino at City Hall. The great central district of Brook lyn has so far been deprived of proper access to tho city wldo subway system. The commission wishes to right this seeming Injustlco as soon as possible. Brooklyn needs more than anything else In tho way of transit facilities additional trunk line access to and. through Manhattan. There are so many branch lines tra versing the Borough of Brooklyn un der tho dual plan, tho traffic upon all of which Is developing remarkably, and so few trunk lines serving theso, that only about half of the full ca pacity of tho existing Brooklyn ays tern can really be developed until moro trunk lines are "constructed. This, In the Judgment of the' commis sion, is tho strongest argument In favor of the construction of a new and separate tunnel for tho down town Manhattan" connections. Tho estimated cost of tho first ot t' 3 alternatives proposed from Ash land Place to tho City Hall, within which part ot the original Nassau Street line would bo incorporated, Is $28,000,000, and that of the Ann Street connection, $25,000,000. In es tlmatlng tho outlay upon cither of theso alternatives, however, allowanco should bo made for tho estimated cost of J7, 000,000 of tho Nassau lino as a link In tho dual plan, which Is still carried In the estimates of uncom pleted dual work, and which would be deducted from tho total cost ot the purely new work. of two connectingr tracks to Sixth Ave nue nnd 14th Street, with tho 14th Street-Eastern District lino, to Brook lyn. iThcso connections will anora a through loop ncrvlco between tho Uueensborough and 14th, street lines, Incidentally opening up ono of tha most Important sections of Manhattan to elthor. fill Tho second building stage south on Eighth Avenuo will carry tho line from. 14th Street to a terminal station at Chambers Street, whero passengers desiring to go furtherwmth in Man hattan or to Brooklyn win transicr to the Broadwny-Sevonth AVouud lino. (C) The third step will cover the section north, again as ft two deck tour track subway on the wosterly .tde of Eighth Avenuo to 67th' Street and thence by way of Amsterdam Avenuo to 103d Street. At tins point tho traffic of Lenox Avenue branch of tho existing subway can bo .diverted to tho now lne, thereby providing. for the Immodlntn relief ot the UIJDer west side of Manhattan through tho turn- lng over tho existing Broadway- Seventh Avenuo lino entirely w lis service. (D). As a fourth and final step, t,ho lino will bo continued on a four track Blngle level up Amsterdam Avo nuo to 166th Street, and from this point, with threo tracks, up Fort Washington Avenue to 181st 8treet. This fourth unit will provldo the fur ther facilities so badly needed through tho densely built apartment houso territory that has' doveloped In upper Manhattan, as tho result ot tne mma lng of the first subway. It would pro vide this territory with an express service bctdnnlrur at 156th Street and ninnlnc tha full distance souin 10 fourteenth Street. The estimated cost of the Eighth Avenuo line by sections wouia do: (a) $12,000,000: (b) $7,500,000: (o) $24,000,000; (d) '$25, 000,000 a total of $89,600,000. Sections (a) ana it would toko a llttlo over tnreo years 10 comDlete: sections (c) and (d) lour ears. It is proposed to develop, a general concourse sta'lon at Columbus Circle, whero tho Unc3 of tho Amsterdam Avenue, the Broadway-Central Park West connection and. tho present sud- wav will converge all within an area of two or three blocks. This would bring the serviwTof practically overy part ot the city to Columbus utrcio. FULTON ST. TO CITY HALL. The brODCvsed link between th6 Ful ton Btreet elevated lino In Brooklyn n.n the Manhattan sections of the Brooklyn Rapid ' Transit subway would proceeod, at the Brooklyn end. by way of tho so-called "Ashland ' Place connection." This will-provide additionally a connection with tho present Fourth Avenuo subway. It is the view of the commission, how- NEW WEST SIDE ROUTE. s Beginning at a point In 41st Street between Seventh and Eighth Avenues, where connection Is to be made with tho Qucensborough subway, ground for which was broken last week. It will run south on a four track line through Eighth Avenue to 14th Street, and as a two trade line to Hudson and Chambers Streets. Northward from 41st Street it will run as a four track subway -up Eighth Avenue and across 67th Street, with underground access to Columbus Circle, and up Amsterdam Avenuo to lOSd Street thence as a four track subway to 155th Street, still via Amsterdam Avenue but as a three track subway to 159th Street and Fort Washington Avenue, and thence to, 181st Street. It is proposed to construct the Eighth Avenue lino by sections, each capable of Uniting un unon Its com plctitlon with some part of tho transit system now in uso, and in accordance with tho following programme: (A) Tho first section will cover the line extending from 41st Street to 14th Eventually eight tracks are designed for tho full trunk sections ot this route. Those now to be built will bo located In a two deck four track sub way, placed on tho west sido of the avenuo. At 41st Street this will bo connected with tho Queensborougb ex tension and at 14th Street by means Wie EARL nova $995 No other car of its size swings; so near the road or hugs it more closely on corners or at speed.

"L" and Weat SiU Satrvay AH CesrtnUet The message which science has tor stenographers How NOISE steals - i the happiness of youth HAVE you ever thought, at the end of a day, why you are so tired and worn out? Perhaps" you have considered natural result of work. it a But your work should not tire you so. It should not get "on your nerves." Eminent scientists have realized this. They have studied the causes for fatigue. Their findings are extremely interest ing to stenographers, for they show a way to more pleasant v work with lesr fatiguing strain. A startling discovery! One of the most startling discoveries which' has been made is the effect of NOISE on tho nervous system! By elaborate and convincing tests, Angelo, Mosso proved that the slightest, sound, even the tone of an organ, had an effect on the nerves which retards action in the same way that fatfgue floes. Wil liam James proved the same' truth with the noise of a bell. Freud demon strated ' that re peated mechanical sounds'produce ab normal mental processes which quickly show up in ;the face and tha physical body. Many scientists have shown that women are more subject to unpleasant results from noise fatigue A- alaaaaaaaaaaaaaBalS than men. Just imagine the effect of a noisy typewriter, hammering away all day when even the slightest sound is harm ful to a girl who is working t Every time a key strikes, '.the sound delivers a blow to your nervous system. These harsh sounds, repeated,' all day, day after day, bring about a condition of nervous fatigue that "affects every part of your body. Unfortunately, the results are seen first in the face; in tired, haggard oyes; dark circles; in loss o' color;' in flabby necks and premature wrinkles. The derangement of 'your nervous system causes annoying pains.; and aches; it causes sleeplessness at nights; it destroys ambition and actually steals away your youth, ' , 'Think of this tho next time, you write on a noisy, type writer; Don't .the harsh blows often "get on your. nerves" 7 Don't you long for quiet? For a chance to relax? You may think you get "accustomed" to noise. That 'is positively impossible. Youri, ner.Ves hear every sound. They , may get numbed-and when they do, tho poisoti, of nerve-fatigue iB sapping the vitality of 'your .whole body. Typewriter noise is often responsible for the premature loss of youthful beauty and !pl many physical and nerv ous ailments among stenographers. And, NOISE is not necessary I Science has perfected The Noiseless Type writer. It has made it faster, easier' to operato and more friendly than any stock typewriter in tho world, , Great '.business houses havo tried. The Noiseless and found It tho equal, or the su perior, of any typewrit mado. Many executives ' insist thai; their secretaries .bo Nolialet a onara tors, for they know tho Irritating and disturbing effect of noise. Have you ever tried The Noiseleea? Have you ever run your fingers over its , responsivo keys? Do you know how much , easier, and more pleasantly you can type in its blessed quiet? We will be glad to give a demonstra tion at any time. We want every girl who uses a typewriter to-know that It is no longer necessary to fight the evil effects of noise. The Noiseless saves your nerves it makes your work far more pleasant and' less fatiguing. Girls who are anxious., to retain their good looks and health are, more and more, coming to demand The Noiseless. If you do typing at homo, you should get The Noiseless Portable This 'little brother of tho standard Noiseless has the same quiet, speed and easo of opera tion which places The Noiseless abovo and apart from all other typewriters.
