Jhey Will Turn to the Right
Instead ot tne Lett-.
ROME, Sept; 6. (AP.) On
of the most radical changes in the
aspect of tbe Eternal City that will
greet the eyes of thousands of pit
grlms next year. Holy Year will
be the complete change In traffic
regulations. The city authorities
have decided to make the rules of
the road to the right Instead of to
the left, as they hare been through
the centuries. I I
i Work already has begun to
change the switches on all the
T street car lines to conform tj& the
new regulations, which are expect
ed to be nut into effect within a
- few months. . ' 1 1 f
- Sticklers for the old order of
things." however, are predicting a
peck of trouble in making the new
rules effective. Custom plays a
" leading role, particularly. Irj the
capital city ot the peninsula king
" dom. . - :' I K- : I I
It is recalled that 2 years ago
the same experiment was tried by
, Mayor Nathan, the only British
born mayor" Rome ever had., who
was bent on making the Roman
traffic rules conform to those of
the rest of Italy. Everywhere else
except In a few large cities, the
rules of the road have always been
to the right, But Iayor Nathan
, ran against a snag, via: The wine
. . carts. ' , . " f '
, Tor generations It has been the
, custom to transport native irlnes
In barrels on quaint two-wheeled
vehicles. The drivers, who ajre on
duty nearly all the time, do most
of their sleeping in the daytime,
and have trained their horses to
go unsteered to their accustomed
destinations. Throughout gener
; " at Ions these nags have been train-
' ed to keep to the left. Winecarts
- exist now In as great numbers as
even so it Is predicted that It will
be as difficult to change the hab
its of the wine-horses as it was
. when Mayor Nathan tried the ex
' periment. V " . j ' ' . V
Another difficulty anticipated In
the plans concerns the drivers of
' Rome's 4000 horse cabs, f The
plans, as being drawn up. call for
special uniform caps with visors
for the drivers of horse cabs and
taxis; and the cab drivers are up
in arms against bringing in these
new tangled ornaments that, they
Caclare, disturb practicallyf tbe

town by the middle ages.
The main attraction for being
a cab driver at all, they assert, is
Individuality of dress. They cul
tivate regular customers to ride
in their low-necked Victorias, and
they argue that if everybody wears
the same headgear how are their
customers going to spot their fav
orite driver? One might as well

He recited the record or Senator

effort would be constructive in its
tendencies. ' He renewed the as

"It is not more orains mat we
need in our) govern men t,"' he said.
The government has gone far
ther! and farther away from you
because the group that has been
able to express its will in the mat?

administration has become f a
smaller and smaller group. It
has become' the group which we

You; can doj it, If you will furnish
the funds as ! well as the votes
whereby your public servants are

however, furnishes funds, it will
