The commission's original order for the reduction was Usucd October 20, and was bused en the petition of fifteen Western States and a number of agri cultural organizations.

' Richard Wcgleln, president of Coun Ceun cil, was Instructed te notify Superin tendent of Police Mills that the city legislators desired the police te "forget" tln no-parking ordinance. The Mayer this morning summoned Assistant Director of Public Safety Tempest nnd told him Mr. Wegleln wns te be referred te the Mayer If he called en any police, official and tried te transmit Council's suggestion. After giving these instructions te the Assistant Director the Majer said; "Neither Superintendent Mills nor any ether police official will take orders from eny ether authority than the Mayer, the Director of Public Safety or the ether police officials w:ie have the right te give orders.

Ceuncll- mrn Ven Tagen, McCeach, Ltraeburncr, uaiis arid waiter were charged with the task. It was Mr. Ven Tagen. an Admin istration member, who led the fight against the "ne-nnrkine" ordinance. He objected te police enforcement of a municipal law which' the Moere Ad ministration found en the books wheu it assumed office In January of last yedr. Combine Members Grin .. Mr. Ven Tagen's attack en attempts te enforce the law caused grins among the Combine members. Councilman Hall quoted Billy Sunday and invited Mr. Ven Tagen te "hit the sawdust trail" te the Combine camp. The Administration member snld he wanted the 1010 ordinance repealed be cause he was afraid Maver Moere would emulate llareun-nl-Raschid, of Arabian Nights fame, and make per sonal tours of the city looking for traffic violators. Haroun the Just, no doubt, found great traffic congestion in the narrow ptreets of old Bagdad, and the donkeys nnd camels of these days probably clut tered up the bazaar streets ns much ns the medrn motorcars in the shopping area here.
