Jaywalking Old Custom Of Filipinos Pedestrian Stili Thinks He's Right 4P Newsfeatures MANILA, Dec. 7.—The United States Army, with the gentle subtlety of a bulldozer,: is trying to change an old Filipino customjaywalking: -v -..''•,.-•With • .Manila's' shell-p o c k e d streets g'roariing under six times more Vehicles than prewar and a casualty list running into.the thousands, .something, obviously has to be done. • But the. Filipino resists' the Army's .efforts to bring about a new order in traffic with the same stubborn tenacity which made him walk three blocks out of his way to avoid having to bow to a Japanese sentry. For centuries the Filipino pedestrian always has been right. Back in the days of stately carriages and plodding ox carts it was fairly safe to cross a street looking neither to the left nor to the right. Automobiles came so gradually to the islands that their drivers learned to conform to the "costumbre del pa is"—the local ways of walking. Then came the war. Few people had automobiies, for the Japanese had brought co-prosperity and had taken the automobiles back to Japan. True, the little men from the ^ V.

PHONE 3588 "Let's get UNO headquarters here first before we start wrang^ ling about where to put it," Lapham and Grady contend. Preliminary discussions have turned a fleeting spotlight on various tracts which might be available to the site selectors, who will require, according to.Dr. Grady, at least 600 acres. • The rambling, beautifully landscaped Presidio, historic-Army res;- ervations near • the Golden Gate Bridge, contains more than twice the needed acreage. Some citizens have also suggested the-slopes of picturesque Twin Peaks, landmarks long used by mariners to guide their ships up the blue bay STUDY IMMUNITY Should the UNO homcmakers desire a location closer to the downtown hotel, shopping and dining districts,, there is another proposal to raze a largely rundown,-semi- slum area close to. City Hal!. This scheme was being argued by the board of supervisors when the "let's not count our chickens before they're hatched" spokesmen hushed up the discussion. Other sites sometimes advocated include the nearby Moraga Valley, an area in the rolling hills near the Stanford University campus at Palo Alto, several'multi- million dollar estates up the San Francisco peninsula in San .Mateo County, and Sausalito, across the bay, which is now hard hit by the virtual shutdown of the Marin shipyard. . Some land is also available near the University of California campus at Berkeley, where a huge cyclotron aided the basic research which resulted in development of the atomic bomb. Should site seekers care to venture a bit further from the docks, skyscrapers and famous eating places of down- \ town San Francisco, there is the' Valley of the Moon, Jack London's resort-studded. home stamping ground, and Santa Rosa, which Luther Burbank selected for the conduct of most of his piant ex| perimenls because he thought it I had "the mos' ideal climate in the ! wrold." I One o fth e deiicate dipl zone. California's Governor Earl Warren and Mayor\ Lapham have vo- unteered to • grant virtually anything the UNO wants. The governor, in a inessage to the United Nations • preparatory commission, declared that the state was willing to cede any land required for the headquarters. The; Truman administration is yet to be heard from on the matter of extra-territorial privileges, but no difficulty is expected in this quarter, either. . • Present tentative plans call "for the creation of a separate UNO gendarmerie—which might become the nucleus'of the first international 'police force—to' patrol the 600-odd acre site of the world capital, . " " . SEEK HOUSING > • It has also been suggested that the UNO may want a private airport, where representatives of foreign nations could come and go without the usual passport and customs restrictions. Like most other metropolitan centers, this city is now experiencing an acute housing and hotel shortage, which is accentuated by its being the major West Coast port through which tens of thousands of Pacific veterans are returning home. But this situation, city officials are convinced, will abate somewhat by the time the UNO gets ready to move in. And if it doesn't local authorities are prepared to adopt drastic measures to make ^he international peace group comfortable and welcome. An informal survey has been made to see what temporary office space would be available for the UNO while its, elaborate perma- lent buildings are under construction, and the owners of considerable local capital have expressed themselves as willing to finance erection of whatever new hotels and apartment houses may be needed. Or, if the UNO would prefer to have its employes.dwell on its own internationalized compound that will be all right, too, city officials In other words, San Francisco proud of its performance as host to the world at the original Unit- eu Nations'Conference on International Organization, is anxious and willing to do everything necessary to bring the world capital here, and i hopeful that 'the UNO will succeed in -making, this planet aj peaceful as the name of the ocean whose tides control the sea level of the Golden Gate/ This is the message that Mayor Lapham and three other San Francisco representatives carried to London, where they are presenting the city's formal, invitation to the United Nations Assembly's first convention. say.

WILKIE AP Automotive Editor DETROIT.—The nation's automobile industry has no immediate plans for bringing out cars of revolutionary design, but experimental work on such vehicles goes on constantly. Many are being tested in the laboratories. Ray Russell, Detroit industrial designer, who built a small car he called the "Gadabout," has developed such new automotive ideas as a revolutionary power piant that requires no clutch, transmission drive shaft, universals, torque tube differential, standard axles or axle housings. Russell, who has done considerable designing for the car industry, but his newest small car in his -own workshop in fashionable suburban Grosse Pointe. To the uninitiated the assembly might seem a complicated mass of 'plumbing," but when Russell explains it, the whole scheme of propulsion appears quite simple. Pump-Driven The vehicle derives its power from a small two-cycle engine mounted ,in the rear. The engine drives a multiply hydraulic pump of variable pressure capacities Oil is forced to the wheels in which are mounted hydraulic motors. Its designer calls "it "quadraulic drive." The entire operation is controlled with one foot pedal and the. power is automatically delivered, in the volume and pressure required for variable driving conditions. .0 Russell has conceived several body styles for the car. Iri one the f ront and rear windshields are dentical, giving full view in both directions. In another, ultra modern ' dream car" lines are applied o a wide, low body in which the ender bulge extends in uniform L nape from front to rear. " Favors Aluminum The designer favors sheet aluminum for the body and the various sections are of identical design to reduce production costs. The vehicle's most startling fea- ure undoubtedly is its simplicity. La Paz, Bolivia, is the highest big city in the world, located at an altitude of 12,400 feet in a natural basin two miles wide and 1 400 feet deep. ' Stripper Plans New Take Off AP Newsfeaturts By LARRY SMITH CLEVELAND, ,Dec. ?.—{#)_ Burlesque belle Valerie Parks isn't thinking about retirement yet, but when she does hang up her G- string, she says, she'll go "back home in Indiana," open her own restaurant, and serve friend chicken, Hoosier style. Valerie, reputedly the highest paid performer in burlesque, says she's just a little girl from the country, and proud of it. North Salem, Ind. (pop. 500), is her home town. Hollywood has made two overtures but after preliminary discussions Valerie cancelled negotiations. "One of the studios even wanted me to use another name," she said. "Naturally I couldn't agree to that because I've spent too much effort and money-building myself up to where I now am. "There's the practical angle to consider also. Movies are- a new field. I don't know whether I can read lines. I'm well established in burlesque and like it, so why should I switch to something uncertain?" About that chicken dinner place. She's serious about going into that business. "When I say an old-fashioned chicken dinner," she said, "that's what I mean.

But tliese were isolated incidents, to he classed with typhoons, invasions of locusts, and ejection promises. They would | pass in time. And occasionally one might find a lone Japanese truck' I and toss a grenade at one's brother 1 Oriental. It was a pleasure. The Americanos eajne back last year. They soon had so many vehicles that all the roads were overflowing. Six months after they landed on Luzon they had 138,000 of them in Manila alone—nearly throe times the number of vehicles in all the country's 7,800 islands before the Japanese came. The Army, staffed witli well- meaning experts from the cities of America, had many good ideas. Trucks hauled a million tons of war cargo a month from the docks to the supply dumps. Traffic experts started safety programs. On the main bridges they placed thermometer scoreboards showing how- many traffic fatalities had been recorded. And they moved traffic from the left side of the road to the right so they would feel at home. Last week they threw away the thermometers, built to record 150 traffic deaths. Since April 188 had been killed and uncounted hundreds more injured. Manila's pedestrians were insisting on their ancient rights and 'privileges. And getting free rides to the hospuitals. The Army really has tried. It has teams of stout MPs and Filipino coppers who lecture to the jaywalker and sometimes—oldtim- ers shudder at such ruthless desecration of ancient right and privilege—give him a $2.75 ticket. Pedestrians aren't taking this lying down, understand. It took three MPs ten minutes to subdue one of them the other day.
