His Neighbors Think He Is you think that Ma'or Hylan should take steps to have the Brooklyn crosstown subway, as outlined by the Transit Commission, built imme. diately?" More neighbors of the Mayor were asked this question yesterday, and.

as usual, every one of them answered it with an emphatic "Yes!" Feeling against Hylan's obstruction of subway construction r'an high. and several scoffed at the "reasons" has given en for holding up this badlyneeded transit relief measure. A total of 607 persons asked this question, many of them close neighbors of the Mayor, have lined up, for immediate construction, while only 27 have backed up Hy an in the latest of his everchanging stands on subway construction. In addition. the Brooklyn Chamber of Commerce and six civic associations have taken group action to show that they want the crosstown subway, and want it just as soon as it can be built.

This is how the Mayor's neighbors answered the question yesterday: L. H. Wrede. 12 Bleecker st.Certainly. Anvthing to relieve the present congestion would be welcomed by the people.

I don't think that Hvlan is set on any policy. He doesn't know where he stands. The man is honest enough, but he is a yery poor executive. He has allowed his personal animosities interfere with his civic duties. tin Instead of giving the people any real reason for not building the subway, he tries to defend his stand by personal abuse of those who disagree with him.

William Brady, 22 Covert favor it. Frank Langyer, 232 Linden Of course. There is no question but what we need more transit lines as soon as they can be built. Transit conditions are especially bad in the Bushwick section. Morris Neufeld, 253 Tompkins ave.

-Yes, he certainly should Miss Fay Schwartz, 16 Linden st. -Yes. Mayor Hylan had better give his attention to the subways instead of to the parks. Moe Meyers, 824 Quincy -Yes. It should have been started long before this.

Macin Baum. 938 Gates ave.Yes, by all means, as soon as possible. The public has been waiting long enough. Jack Berryman, 26 Covert st.Certainly. Something should be done to improve transit on Broadwav, too.

It is badly needed PERSONAL TOUCH FAILED TO AID FANNIE HURST Experts on salesmanship say that personal contact always brings home the bacon. If that is so then here is a salesmanship problent for them to solve: Fannie Hurst, the great fiction writer, for 12 years personally tried to sell her manuscripts to all the big publishing firms before she got one across. The Saturday Evening Post accepted the 36th story she presented. Down in the Ozark Mountains William Henry Hamby ground out 2.000.000 words in short stories and novels, put them into the mail and 40 different national magazines accepted them as fast as they were received. Hamby has yet to get a gimpse of the editors who decide on stories, and his writings don't commence to have the popularity of those of Fannie Hurst, who trudged for 12 years to the publishers before she got recognition.

"Today a woman whose clothes are in good taste appears to better advantage than the one who has beautiful features but who does not know how to put herself together.
