WEDNESDAY, MARCH 12, 1930. THE DAILY COtJRIER, CONNEL.LSVI PA, HAITIAN RULER STANDS PAT BUT MAY Hoover Commission Trying to Avoid Causing Any Violence in Island. PAYS VISIT TO OLD FORTRESS By HARRY W FRANTZ, United Press Staff Correspondent CAPE HAITIEN, Haiti, Mai ch 12 -The Haitian political situation remained critical today while Brigadier General John H. Russell, American high commissioner, continued his efforts to Impress President Luis Boino with the danger o£ repudiating his agreement with the Hoover Investigating- commission for government reform. The commission left Cape Haltien last night on the U.'S. S. Rochester without receiving further advices as to Homo's position and planned x a brief atop at Gonalves today before going to Port Au Prince. The commission has no Intention of forcing the Issue to a point where cither faction will be stirred to violence, and hopod that a day or two of calm consideration would avert threatened tiouble by Borno's opponents The fact that the c ommission'a concessions have been far moro generous than would have been considered possible a week ago, and that the rights of both parties to the controversy ha\e been eaietl for in the suggested agreement, lend eontldence to public belief In its eventual acceptance by all sides. The comparative merits of the- legislative system over the council of state which now elects the president and transacts nearly all governmental tnuinefes have been matters of debate In Haiti for a h u n t i i t u years and the commission's ready acceptance ot the legislative principle appears to coincide with the majority opinion here. W. Cameron yorbe-s, chairman o! the commission, lis'ened privately to at least a dozen leaders at thlu section yetterdav, all of whom, it is understood, presented grievances similar to those voiced ftt tho Port Au Prince hearings. The commission found some of Haiti's romance yisterda\, when It visited the magnificent fortiess of King Chilstophe, a century-old relic of Haiti's revolution against France. Without question this palace-citadel Is one oif the most amazing structures in the Western Hemisphere It is situated a mile in the air, on the summit of a mountain, and from its castle-like nails tin re is a sheer drop of 300 feet to the sloping ground below The old French batteries form- ins? its armament are still Intact, but invisible from below \ncient tunnels used to give access to the cities but iiow the citadel is i p t c h e d o n l y by a difficult horseback journey. Iihentually the- place will betouie a tourist Mecca, as w i l l the beautiful ruins o£ t h e queen's palace, ' Sans Soucl,' nearby. The t-aUlo was i reminder to the commission of the glorious duyb of the Haitian "empiie," dajs which IIRVO contributed no Httlo to the national eonactouii'e-i of thp Island Kor In t h e same period that developed our eai ly A i n o i l t a i i ·statesmen, Washington, Jefferson, -Madison and Mon- ioee, Haiti possessed four negro geniuses--the libeiator, Tousramt L, Ouverturo, Empcior Dessnlip, who defeated Napoleon, King Christophe, and President Potion, ot South Haiti.

CITES SOON MUST FIT AUTOMOBILES Country Has Nor Adapted lUelf to Necessity of ? More Speed. Tremendous changes that are coming la the automobile world, will require cities of the future to be built to flt the gasoline age, according to Charles K. Ketterlng, general manager of the General Motors Research corporation, In on Interview In the American Magazine. Only Scratched Surface. "There has been endless change In the automobile, though we have only scratched the surface," nays Ketterlng, "but meantime the country has not adapted Itself to the tus of the automobile. Tha ante wa-i bonj Into a horse and buggy world And by and large, it is still running through a horse and buggy world. Your car may go 60 miles an ti«ur with ease. But make a trip to a town 60 miles away, and see how long it will take you to get there--certainly two hours or more. Why? Kec »use you will have to pass through a dozen small touna and in each ono jou will be routed through tln» busi« st street. You wilt slow op your trip and get in the way of townspeople wno have legitimate business in thp town If the country were buJlt for automobiles, you would go alonj an express highway, clear around thi busy streets. And you would make ,5 our trip in an hour. Thla will come ^o quickly that people will be surp-fioil at It. Changes to Come, "This is only an Instance of fhe innumerable changes thai will be made In the physics) layout ft our towns in the next ten years. And we must not overlook the new cit!en which will be bulit on the 1930 and 1!i|0 models, and because they are adapted to conditions of modern life, they may pat a kink In the old model cities." All these changes, continued Ketter- lng, will bt the result of dissatisfaction of automobile customers. "If you want to see plenty of satisfied customers, go to China. A world full of satisfied customers would kill business dead as a doornail." Office Building Garage* Urged as Parking Answer Solution of the downtown parking problem IB large cities by providing automobile storage bpace in ofllca buildings is urged by Dr. Miller Me- Cllntoclc. Doctor McCllntock, who is director of the Erskln* bureau of street traffic research of Harvard university, in a report to the American Institute of Architects said office building garages already had been provided la numerous cities. He mentioned the Pure OH building in Chicago, which utilizes what normally would be the court of the building to a height of 20 stories to provide parking space for 000 cars.

Smoka and Sight It probably has never o"cum 3 to many smokers that much of the i les*- xi re in the habit is derived from seeing the smoke curl up from one's clgtir, cigarette or pipe. It had never occurred to the Sun's Ray . reporter either until recently wlua he offered a cigarette to a blind man, who had once been aa iavet irate smoker. "No, tlinnk you," the sightless man replied. "I have never smoked line* I became blind, although I once th mght 1 could not do without my tol scco. I don't care anything abont it mm because I can't see the smoke. "As a general rule, If you'll mtl«e, you'll find that very few blind persons smoke.
