Georgetown Unit Seeks to
Avoid Conflict With
Two Others.
The revision of the boundaries of
the Georgetown Citizens' Association,
to avoid conflict with two other citi
zens' associations, was announced at
a meeting of the group last night at
6t. John's Church Parish Hall.
Prank P. Leech, chairman, Execu
tive Committee, set the following
boundaries in a report which mem
bers approved in an effort to avoid
Juture conflict of jurisdiction:
Beginning on the west bank of
Rock Creek at the Potomac River;
thence north and west along the west
bank of Rock Creek to Massachusetts
avenue and W street to intersec
tion of Observatory Circle, and thence
to point opposite intersection at Wis
consin avenue and W place; thence
to Thirty-seventh street; thence
southeast along Thirty-seventh street
to U street and east along U street
<o Thirty-fifth street; thence along
the west side of Thirty-fifth street
to south side of R street and thence
to Fortieth street; thence down west
ern lines of the Convent of the Visi
tation and Georgetown University
grounds to the north bank of the
Potomac River and thence back to
the starting point.
Dr. H. B Meyer, chairman, Parks
and Reservations Committee, an
nounced success in two recent re
quests of the group involving play
ground areas to be constructed on
abandoned building site north of P
street, and tennis court construction
^on the south of P street. His resolu
tion indorsing the increased appro
priation for playground personnel in
the 1937 District budget of the Senate
was approved.

ONE-WAY TRAFFIC
URGED AROUND PARK
Lincoln Park Citizens Also Pro
pose 10 Other East Washing
ton Streets for Change.
A resolution requesting adoption of
t one-way traffic system around Lin
coln Park was approved by the Lincoln
' Park Citizens' Association last night
at a special meeting in the Bryan
School. At present, both north and
southbound traffic is permitted on
Eleventh street, which bounds the park
on the west side.
The resolution was introduced by
A D. Calvert, who also proposed that
10 streets in East Washington be made
one-way thoroughfares from Florida
avenue northeast, south to Virginia
and Potomac avenues southeast.
Fourth, Seventh. Eleventh. Four
teenth and Seventeenth streets would
be made one-way streets, while Sixth,
Ninth. Thirteenth, Sixteenth and
Nineteenth streets would be north
bound one-way thoroughfares. This
resolution also asked that Twenty
first street be widened to 140 feet.
The association decided to have a
aocial evening at its May meeting.

abide by the re
sults?
Old times back
home, we had our
own system. We
didn't follow the
Mew York scheme
of inviting the
• alleged inebriate
to say “Sissie
Fitzgerald” be
cause he'd prob
ably take refuge
In his constitu
nonai ngnis as a
Southern gentleman and refuse to
bandy a lady's name In any such
place as the calaboose.
Nor was sniffing the breath much
favored and never in early Spring,
when the first mint julep marched
in with the first young onion, poeti
cally known among us as the shallot,
whereas Yankees vulgarily called it a
’ scallion. Then anybody was likely
to have a combination breath so em
phatic there was an echo of it and,
in some cases, an undertow.
Under our plan, if a citizen was
lying in the street and his fingers
didn't move, he was intoxicated. But
If even his little finger moved, he
merely was resting. ^
But we didn't have alcoholic auto
mobiles to pester us. The surplus
population was reduced with firearms
or cutlery, thus giving everybody a
, chance.

r How Pluto Water Relieves
CONSTIPATION
LIVER AND
GALL BLADDER
TROUBLES
Constipation, liver, gall bladder trou
bles do come together—often when
you’re constipated, biliary drainage is
not normal either. So ordinary laxa
tives temporarily relieving constipa
tion still leave you feeling terrible. But
Pluto Water (with amazina double ac
tion) helps all these troubles at same
time. Gives a sure, gentle flush in an
hour or less. Stimulates gall bladder,
liver to normal, “free flowing*’ action.
So relief is quick, thorough. For years,
over 50,000 doctors have used or rec
ommended Pluto. So do as doctors do
when dull, listless from constipation,
liver or gall bladder troubles. Take the
tasteless non-habit-forming dose—1/6
Pluto, 4/5 glass hot water. Two hun
, dred million bottles of Pluto have been
used. The safest, most economical
relief. 25c and 50c at all drug stores.
