FIRST, (IT OUT STREET PARKING . . . Prof. Has Drastic Rx for Traffic Cramps By ROBERT WILCOX If the cities don't learn how to deal with the modern industrial triumph, the automobile, claims Prof. Arthur Gallion, it soon may be too late. The car, claims Gallion: --Through roads and park- Ing is "consuming city land at such a rate" as already to pose "an insoluble problem.'' --Takes up two-thirds of the total downtown Los Angeles land area and still there's no convenient place to park. --Has b e c o m e such a menace to life and proper- ty on the highways that subdivision streets with no m a j o r intersections a r e eight times as safe --Is spawning freeways with their adjacent "utter (landscape) blight" so fast t h a t "we have become so inured to ugimesr t h a t we have nn appreciation for --5IIH Photo by ED KENYON BABY MIKE, FOUND BY I, P-T CARRIER BOY, SHARES GRIN WITH HARBOR GENERAL NURSES Independent The Southland** Jm Finest Morning Newspaper THURSDAY, MARCH 17, 1964 SECTION B--Page B-l MARKETS ON PAGE C-6 REACH COMBIXG MALCOLM EPLEY TT'S St. Patrick's Day and it's appropriately the birthday of a Long Beach lad of Irish descent named Pat Foley. But Pat, who's 15 today, will be a little cramped in his celebrating. The son of the John R. Foleys, 7225 Stearns, Pat got his foot caught in a car door the other day and it's In a cast. Then he slipped while crutching around and sprained the other foot. It's bandaged. Is that what they mean by the lurk of the Irish? 'HAT outsiders say about us is always of interest and that goes for a column w : you're surrounded by giant versions of those bobbing store window birds." Ah, but pretty t o they're s o m e mighty people, notably Pat Brown and the state's budgeteers. WITH little fanfare, Congress this week killed an old government setup through which many of us saved our first dollar. It was the postal savings system which was founded in 1910 but has long been outmoded under its 2% interest plan. This touched a memory. When I was about 12. I proudly b o u g h t my first Baby 'John Doe' Has Loving Alias in 'Michael Edgar' Michael Edgar Is doing just fine, thank you. He eats well, sleeps well, and when things go wrong-which they seldom do--he has a lusty wail. The baby, found Sunday morning in a storm drain at Gulf Avenue and West D Street in Wilmington, has been removed from intensive care in Harbor General Hospital, Torrance, and placed in the nursery with other babies. · · · · HOSPITAL RECORDS carry him as "John Doe," but Miss Vivian Robinson, R.N., head nurse in the pediatrics department at Harbor General, has a pet name for all boy waifs: "Michael." In this case, "Edgar" was informally added by the nurses, so the little fellow will be "Michael Edgar" so long as he remains in the hospital.

As a starting point, he suggests abolishing all street parking "on any public street, anyplace," freeing "two lanes that have already been built" for moving traffic He would cancel all of ihe sn-called "strip zoning" for businesses along major highways where congestion is caused by cars backing nut from a n g l e parking places onto the street.

He weighed 7 pounds, 12 ounces when he was brought to the hospital, and now he weighs 6 pounds, 14 l /j ounces. It is normal, explained the doctors, for a new-born baby to lose weight. He will be up to 7 pounds soon, they say. "We have been hoping that the parents, or at least the mother will come to the hospital and claim him," a hospital spokesman said Wednesday. "If he is not claimed, we assume he soon will be put up for adoption."
