COLORADO SrM.NCS CHICACO ANew Gateway To Chinatown A year'! study blossomed and bore fruit yesterday in the form of a coordinated plan for the improvement of Chinatown and North Beach. The plan, which still has to be refined by additional studies, was unveiled at a luncheon meeting of the San Francisco nanning and Ur ban Renewal Association at the Elks Club. It Includes a new start in creating a gateway to China town at Grant Avenue and Bush Street. $50,000 The team of architects com posed of Lun Chan, Worley Wong, Morton Rader and Piero Patri, who drew up the plan, suggested that an addi tional $20,000 be raised for a total of $50,000 to finance the gateway that was first pro posed in 1958 and has been lying dormant since. The Chinatown areas of Portsmouth Plaza and Grant Ave. would also be connected with the Golden Gateway to the east through an arcade. North Reach Grant Ave. would be connected with Chinatown Grant Ave. by means of a "Marco Poli" bridge from Pacific Ave. and Broadway to Columbus Ave. and Vallejb St. The block at each end of the bridge would be closed to traffic and turned Into a mall linking the two areas. AUTO ritOBLEM Because both Chinatown and North Beach are areas of large amounts of pedestrians, the ultimate plan is to create a pedestrian mall. - -i : ' "ys i , . . v is W V; ' ' ;. : .-' ' " 6 1 i '& i tAA-l it wmm first class Go Hart Schaffner & Marx Viracle-just the ticket for cross-country traveler or cross-town commuter 79.95 Take the travail out of travel with Virade...HS&M's crisp, care-free suiting of 55 Dacron polyester and 45 fine worsted.

A subcommittee composed of William Marslco, Joseph Arata and Dean Woo was ap pointed to further study the parking prooiem.
