W'Hh 19 policemen In the congested

ation showed a decided improvement
je.terday. Traffic Sergeant Lewis,

conditions were per cent better.

casualties, occurred in the downtown
district, a far as reports to the police
showed. The public in general, say the
patrolmen, showed a disposition to co
o;erate in the new regulations.
The only ones who protested con
cerning: the "jay-walk ing" restrictions.
t- which much opposition waa expect
ed, were elderly persons who had
tnwn set in their manner of pedes

"ne thinks she got by for a good
many years. I guess, so she doesn't be
l.eve in changing now.- sighed the
policeman good-naturedly. "Well, they
toM as to be polite, and you know It's
hard to break an old dog of his trot."
This was far from the general atti
tude, however. Many pedestrians who

proval of the aikrptlon of "modern traf
