Commissioners Make Little
Change in Rules Prepared
by Eldridge
The District Commissioners to
day formally adopted, after mak
ing min o r aiyi unimportant
changes, the new traffic code
drafted by M. 0. Eldridge, direc
tor of traffic, which becomes ef
fective May 3.
*T am hoping that these regu
lations will have the effect of re
ducing accidents in Washington,”
Director Eldridge said. .“The
rules were drawn up after a very
thorough study of conditions here
and are not, in my opinion, un
“I ask .for the co-operation of
the pedestrians and motorists of
Washington in seeing that these
regulations are obeyed. If such
co-operation is forthcoming, I am
confident that the near future
will see fewer, accidents and less
congestion in downtown and other
sections of Washington.*’
Old Rules Repealed.
Director Eldridge announced that
the present regulations will be re
pealed on May 3. Copies of the
law win be furnished to police for
study in a few days. Orders will
be iwued for strict enforcement of
•very traffic regulation.
The adoption of the regulations
was announced today following a
conference between Commissioners
Rudolph and Bell; Director Eld
ridge; Assistant Traffic Director I.
C. Moller, Inspector Charles Evans,
acting superintendent of police, and
Daniel E. Gorges, secretary to the ,
The changes made in the regula-I
tions by the Commissioners follow:
Parking Provisions.
The section which proposed that
ao vehicle be parked within thirty (
feet of the curb of any street was
changed to twenty feet. The Com
missioners eliminated a sentence
providing that no vehicle shall park
within twenty feet of any safety
The section which prohibited
parking on Connecticut avenue on
the west side from S to the Con
necticut avenue bridge between 8
and 9:15 and the east side from
4 to 6 was changed to prohibit park
ing during these hours between
the bridge and Cathedral avenue,
extending the prohibited zone.
In brief, the regulations provide:
New Speed Limits.
The present speed of eighteen
miles an hour is changed to “not
to exceed** twenty-two miles an
hour in every part of Washington.
Later the regulations will be amend
ed to provide a greater speed on
certain streets.
For trucks the limit will be
eighteen miles for those with pneu
matic tires and fifteen for those
with solid tires.
Pedestrians are given right of
way at all corners; vehicles be
tween intersections.
Parking will be prohibited be
tween 8 and 9:15 a. m. and 4 to 6
p. m. on twenty-four streets. At
other hours in the congested zone
a one-hour parking rule will pre
vail. This regulation is designed
to speed up traffic in and out of
the congested zone and to eliminate
the all-day parker.
The regulation which prescribed
oertain speed limits for going across
intersections. , around corners and
into alleys has been repealed, the
new rules providing a "reasonable
speed." An unreasonable speed will
be considered reckless driving. •
Right of Way.
For right of way, the following
regulation will prevail:
"A vehicle approaching a street
intersection shall slow down and
be kept under such control as to
• void colliding with other vehicles.
Operators of vehicles approaching
an intersection from the left shall
look out for and give the right of
Wsy to vehicles approaching from
the right, provided that a vehicle
making a right or left hand turn
•hall give the right of way to
through traffic.”
The regulation affecting brakes
provides that foot brakes must be

His Fiancee to Wed

By Interaetloeal Neers Service.
LONDON, April 22.—Norman
Thorne, wealthy young fanner,
paid with his life today for his
attempt to solve his love tangles
by the murder of his sweetheart.
He was convicted of slaying
Elsie Camerbn, pretty London
typist, that he might be free to
wed Grace Caldicott, his country
sweetheart. Thorne was hanged
at 8 a. m. in the Wandsworth
prison court yard.
Thorne faltered when he left
the death cell, but immediately
regained his composure. He was
smiling when the black cap was
adjusted and stepped out firmly
as he was led onto the trap.
Delay Disperses Crowds.
Fifteen minutes later the execu
tion officially completed, the chap
lain and prison officials left the
Outside the prison gates a
meagre crowd waited for news that
Thorne had been hanged. The
public had expected he would be
executed at -9 a. m., the hour
originally set.
A half hour before the hanging,
a half dozen persons were waiting
and at the hour of his death less
than a hundred were there.
Shortly before 9, more of the
death watchers came. Mothers

to the Washnigtbn fan’s eye with
a new meaning.
Scramble For Seats.
Propiptly at 12 o’clock the long
and wearied lines which had been
waiting at the gate dashed forward
and scrambled for places of van

hustled here and there through the
huge crowds doing a land-office

missed their luncheons to be on

Convicted of Slaying Baby,
She Faces 10 Years
In Penitentiary
ROCKVILLE, Md., April 22.
An appeal will be noted by former
State’s Attorney Thomas L. Daw
son on behalf of his client, Eliza
beth King, nineteen years old, who
was yesterday sentenced to ten
years in the penitentiary, follow
ing her conviction for manslaugh
ter in connection with the smoth
ering of her newly born baby in
the attic of her home at Wood
mont, near here.
Sixty Days in Which to Appeal.
Attorney Dawson declared today
that he has sixty days In which to
note an appeal, and that he has
already' asked Judges Peter and
Worthington, who passed sentence,
to keep the King girl here until he
has an opportunity to take further
legal steps in her behalf. A vigor
ous attempt will be made to have
bond set for her freedom pending
the appeal.
Since the maximum ten-year sen
tence was imposed, a wave of sym
pathy for the girl seems to have
swept the county.
It is the confident hope of many
who have followed the case that if
she loses the appeal, the governor
will exercise his prerogative of
paroling her after she has served
three years of the ten-year term.

Country Endangered, Report
of Americanization Com
mittee Says
The United States must safe
guard itself from the menace of
both Americans and foreigners
living in this country who do U<C
believe in the- ideals of our form
of government, Miss Alice Louise
McDuffee of Michigan, ranking
vice president general, warned
the Daughters of the American
Revolution today.
Miss McDuffee, who is chair
man of the Americanisation com
mittee, declared that the country
is in grave danger of being under
mined from within unless patriotic
Americans take active steps in
helping to prepare the immigrant
for the highest type of citizen
ship immediately upon his arrival.
“Unfortunately, there are Doth
Americans and those of foreign
birth who do not believe in our
form of government and who can
not perpetuate the ideals of our
forefathers who founded this Re
public,” she said.
Holds Problem Vital
"Many of the foreign born come
from lands of oppression where
they formed the habit of discon
tent. They came gladly to this
land of opportunity, but those who
might have helped them most were
thoughtless and engrossed in their
own affairs, and when false pro
phets came it was easy for them
to view America with disillusioned
Miss McDuffee asserted there
must be a friendship for the foreign
born by patriotic Americans who
live good citizenship as well as
preach it. ,
“Nothing is more vital tp the
maintenance of our country than
immediately and unitedly solving
this problem well,” she said.
The various chapters of the
Daughters of the American Revolu
tion donated SBI,OOO during the
past year toward Americanization
work, she said.
