MOTOR BUS P&ANS
"A good many people are under
the impression that the $3,000,000
motor bus item which council has
voted in the city budget means that
the whole lump will be used at one
smash to purchase the jitney buses,"
said Aid. Eugene Block today.
"That is all wrong. The most im
portant point to be understood about
motor buses at this time is that no
body proposes to buy $3,000,000
worth of vehicles in that way. If the
voters decide by referendum to try
motor bus lines the expense will be
light to begin with.
"For less money than it costs to dig
fifty yards of subway- we can buy a
dozen motor buses and test out the
plan in a preliminary way before
-spending more of the city's money."

their board and the princely salary of
$4 a month.
