frtflS. AtfrQQMA. MIRftQftr-MONDAY,.NQVEMBflft .11...1929 ELEVATOR SPEBD COPS NOTAPPEAR New type of Traffic Officers, N Created in New York Citjr, Will Work Under Department of Inspection. By LEMUEL F. PARTON} Staff Correspondent (Copyright 19JK, by Consolidated PrfcuS Association.} NEW YORK, Nov. ll.~Tfie elevator speed dot appears In New York. Penned up on its tight little Island, and climbing Into the air at an astonishing rate, the city finds itself engaged with the third dimensional traffic problems. The new up-and-down traffic cops will .pork unfler the department of elevatot inspection, extending Itself to match mechanical facilities in heaving huge building populations {o the skies in the morning and lowering them at night. The New York Life building swallows and disgorges about 15,000 persons every day. Its unsurpassed banks' of elevators can climb the thirty-three stories at the rate of 1,000 feet per minute. Carrying 2,500 pounds each, their proper speed is about 600 or 700 fee', per minute. The speed cop will make only occasional visits but"& spawning 1 of new skyscrapers, the sky-faring crowds place a new burden on the personnel and resources of the city inspection and police forces. The Metropolitan Life building will be, according to present plans, 125 stories. Engineers refuse to divulge plans for the elevator system for this building, but it is known that It will ' reveal novel and unprecedented ar. rangement • for literally hurling up\ ware 1 a population equal to. that of a W^fceable inland city. Engineering, ^marvels are indicated and in their /I devising, necessity 13 mothering invention, as skyscrapers have now reached a Height which exacts the keenest resources of. the profession if they are to be economically feasible. The new Chrysler building rises to a height of 805 feet. The nearly completed Manhattan Bank building Is 860 feet, or 61: feet higher than the Woolworth building. Their elevator systems, with the now completed system of the New York Life building, are typical of the hieChanioal Ingenuity summoned to an emergency never before encountered in this field, ' , These new elevators are all'push button affairs'. The car stops' Automatically at the 1 exact level/of the floor, by a new device,-''called, the "micro-leveler." The dbors-open and close automatically. 1 '/ .As passengers call their, floors, the / operator punches a button for eaoff floor called. The: cgr stops at each floor desired, regardless of the order in which the buttons have beep ,,p'resscd. Povyer-operated doors opcr/and-close noiselessly. A passcfnger on an -upper floor, wishing to descend, presses a button indicating the direction in which he wishes to travel. This random call is caught by the nearest car which happens- to be traveling in his direction, and the car will automatically stop at. that floor with no knowledge or attention or the part of the attendant. But, if the nearest descending car happens to be loaded, it goes by and. the Call is taken by the next nearest car; The call will not be registered on-more than one car simultaneously, but will be transferred only 'if the flrat car 4s full. This prevents the stop, ping of twi cars to answer one call. A new system of lighted signals shows the passenger what cars are' traveling and in -what direction, so he may be sure of standing exactly at the entrance to the car he is to 'take. 'Inside the elevators are car position ihdi- v cators, showing the exact position of \ the car at all times, so that no time Miss Gladys Parks Halter, former cnbcret entertainer, surrendered to (lie police of Newark, N. .1., yesterday and Admitted to the charge of killing Dorothy lingers, aged 6 and Timothy Rogers, nged 2, children of Allen C. lingers of VVood- biiry, N. J. The duel murder was committed at Cdmilcn. A nation wide Hunt was being made for 1 the woman. • Will be lost in departing at the. proper floor. It is all just another little forward ,urge ift the quickening pate of the metropolis . with the (Jaily shuttling of millions In and out of the city and tossing them skyward and easing .them down again—an,endleas battledore and shuttlecock, played with humarv beings, between the cellar and the^clouds. The New York Life building elevators are 27.7 miles pf-Iron,-and steel rope. The travellng.'cobMa used on the cars total 4.G mjles.XKubber covered copper wire uSecMh all the wire for the machines and controllers totals 285 miles, .

Edwin Markham, America's poet laureate, commemorated Armistice day, 1629, <vlth "Let There Bo No More Battles," a poem reminiscent Of his famous world-famous masterpiece, "The Man With The Hoe." The pflem, a strong plea for world peace, was written exclusively for Christian Herald, non-denominational religious weekly magazine. JJL reads: Yes, W6 would honor our heroic deitl, Would lay a wreath on each heroic head. They all have perished for their dream t>f truth, Died With the dare of youth. They are not dead: life's flag is never furled : They only passed on lightly, world to World, Their bodies sleep: but in that Better Land Their spirits march under a new command. But there is something nobler yet- to live, Live gallantly, to give and to forgive. Yes, there is something nobler than all war — To make our Country worth our dying for— To lay the beams of Justice on tho earth, And call the Brother Future into blrtll. This Is a day that In clear, A day when God is near— The day when battles ended for a Space. Let it become the conscience of tlio race. O sons of time and tears, The skies arc weary of these screaming shells, The flelds are weary of these batllo hells: Send a new vision on tho coming years. Sot this great day as a holy day apart. • -• For dreams of Peace, the wisdom of the heart, • Yes, let thia day, Omen of earth, become. The dawn-rise of a new millennium. O friends of Christ, this is our dream ; for Wd Must strive on toward tho Brotherhood to be — \ Coward that great hour of God's ascending sun When all shall love and all shall lift as one.

President, Amerlcaiii Korloty of Thrift. iff HAVE LEARNED to look upon JL my savings bnnk account as a strong, dependable friend—the kind of friend that will stand by me if I should ever bo in need. Tt affords mo satisfaction to know that I liavo a good friend of this kind." The foregoing pnrngr:iph is from a letter recently .received by this writer from a man Who has been patiently saving money for a number of years. The idea of personifying one's bank account In this mnnner Is, we believe, a very helpful idea. Human friendship Is one of the most splendid things In life. A friend who can always be counted on Is indeed a priceless possession. We may have other blessings n life but wo never can rise above the need of tinman friendship. There, is nn old saying that "a friend in need Is a friend indeed" and that is thi- kind of friend one's savings bank account always is. Human friendships are, of course, not fostered for the purpose of having i place of refuge'or help in times of trouble. In the same way, a savings bunk account should not bo created merely for tho pake of having something to fall back on when wo are In need. But when troubles do come to a man, he turns to his friends for sympathy and if need be, help. In [he same way he turns to hls~batik account ua a means of salvation when he might otherwise be swept down In ruin. It Is also to bo remembered that one'.s bunk account is n friend to whom one may turn for help when opportunities for self-advancement come along. Many a man owes his success in life to the fact that he was able to take advantage of an opportunity wneft ft presented itself—an opportunity tfiftt could not have been utilized had he been without funds. . . It Is well to keep In mind the thought that a savings bnnk account IS A friend ano that every dollar' we add to this account makes this friend Just that much stronger and that much more ablu to help us when wn have need o:- opportunity for assistance, BLUE BALL—Funeral service for William Motter, whose death occurred ! lit Phillpsburg State hospital, was | held at the home of his daughter, Mrs. Leo Casher, here, Sunday afternoon, Rev.
