(HHT..............................SSI NEW YORK DAY BY DAY. * + New York, August 18—(By Union J Associated Press)—Tammany is build + ing great hopes in regaining control •> of the city during the coming election; 4 and, as a matter of fact, the contest + promises to be spirited, if rot sensa + tional. The majority of the city's £ 1 newspapers agree that Mayor Mitch J , ell has given the city an efficient, bus inesslike administration. There are thousands of voters who agree with the newspapers, but charge that tha * Mayor is too much of an aristocrat. Many Catholics are against him be cause of his attitude on public char ities, so are other denominations. Hence, it is seen that Mr. Mitchell is ÿ both praised and blamed for the same J acts, which nearly one agrees were in + the interest of good business. It is a queer situation and furnishes mater ial for a three-sides contest. * , ❖ « ♦ 4» * * ♦ More Women Chauffeurs. Many women are taking the State ♦ examination these days and becoming ❖ licensed chauffeurs in order that they % may be qualified to serve as ambu lance drivers if they are needed. The * women generally show an exceptional 'knowledge of the mechanical pr°per Ues of their car, while they handle their automobile more skillfully than many men. While the region immed | iately adjacent to the metropolis is I turning out women chauffeurs in | greater numbers now than up State, j the same spirit is manifest elsewhere i with the result that at nearly every State examination from one to five women are on hand. * * ♦ * New Brand of Cops. The New York copy of 1917 will be a physical prodigy. He will have slim legs, a belt line suggesting the wasp and low visibility. He will be boyish looking, have a clean shaven face and will have a free, bounding gait. Many remember the old time double-action, double-chinnCl cop who could stand at a corner and quell a riot with one beclubbed hand in front of him while he reached the other hand to the rear and committed petty larceny from the peanut stand. Just keep that type of copy in mind and try to imagine him being ordered to peel off and step in the "gym" for a I physical and mental test. The medical and physical examiners of the Civil Service Commissions are now examin . ing 4,000 men who aspire to be patrol men. An old-fashioned cop would stand no chance of passing the gruell ing physical tests that is at present required for admission to the depart ment. Marriage Brokers Busy. The marriage brokers, or "schat chens," as they are known in the Ghetto district of the East Side, are said to have been responsible for the recent drive of slackers at the marri age bureau. It is said that they did a land office business supplying slack ers with wives, collecting fees from both the bride and the bridegroom to be. The Federal officials learned that i only a few of the young men of draft age who flocked to the marriage li- j cense bureau with alleged sweethearts 1 knew little or nothing of the young ! women they were to marry. The ac tion of the Federal agents in demand ing to see the registration cards of men who sought marriage licenses has caused the number of applicants at City Hall for permission to w6d to fall off considerably. Instead of from 500 to 600 couples the daily average is j now only about 100. î WALTER D. FOX, O, D. A.
