SOe and St I ~ INCREASED POLICE URGED BY CITIZENS Forum of Columbia Heights Favors Additions for Bet ter Protection. An Increased police force to Insure more adequate protection and better enforcement of existing regulations was recommended last night by the Citizens’ Forum of Columbia Heights, meeting in the Powell Junior High School. The recommendation was presented by L. F. Kebler and Burd W. Payne after an investigation by the Public Health and Safety Committee. Restorations Backed. The forum voted to back the fight for restoration of the 35 policemen cut off in 1933-34 and for authorization of 100 additional men. A movement is now on foot, it was pointed out, to take up the matter with the District committees of the House and Senate. A joint petition will be sought toward this end. Another resolution adopted urged additional playground space and im provements for Powell Junior High School. The forum recommended purchase of property directly west of the school, running nearly to Six teenth street, for a play area. A new auditorium and lunch room are also needed, members contended, pointing out the present assembly room and lunch room will accommodate but one-third of the students. Other resolutions indorsed the pro posal to consolidate all public play grounds under the National Capital Parks office, and all school and recre ational facilities in the school board. $100,000 Urged for Center. A report submitted by Mrs. C. J. Fernald. chairman of the Education and Recreation Committee, was adopted. It recommended Congress be urged to increase the Community Center appropriation to $100,000 or more. The Board of Education sub mitted an estimate of $75,000 as a basis for appropriation by Congress for 1935-36. With the understanding the Pub lic Utilities Commission is now operat ing under a budget of $50,000 a year, the forum adopted a resolution recommended by the executive com mittee that the 1935-36 appropriation be increased to $120,000. Copies of the resolution were ordered sent the District Commissioners, the Federa tion of Citizens’ Associations and the House and Senate District Commit tees.

CITIZENS DISCUSS Northeast Joint Conference Hears W. A. Roberts Ex plain Plan. Discussion of a plan to construct street car tunnels at Thomas and Du pont Circles to relieve traffic conges tion featured the monthly meeting of the Joint Conference of Northeast Citizens’ Associations last night at No. 12 precinct. William A. Roberts, people’s counsel, suggested the tunnels be built to a depth of 140 feet, to a length of one block on each side of the circles serv ing street cars. Roberts said this plan also might be applicable on Pennsyl vania avenue between the District Building and the State, War and Navy Building. It was estimated that tunnels of this type would coat approximately $1,200,000 each, while a system of switches to reroute street cars would cost approximately $1,600,000. The conference discussed a measure whereby street car tracks from Eighth street southeast across the Pennsyl vania Avenue Bridge would be aban doned and replaced with busses. Dissatisfaction was registered with the 20 new street cars recently ordered by the Capital Transit Co. The cars, it was said, are designed for one man operation and are not suited for the needs of the District. The possibility of returning to the meter system Instead of the present zone system for taxicabs was dis cussed. PLAY TONIGHT Junior Wesley Heights Players to Give Short Drama.
