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 ran htgh. and several scoffed at the "reasons" he has ghen for holding up this badly-needed 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 hacked 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: I.. If. Wmlp. 12 BlMH-ker st. Certainly. Anything lo 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 is a very poor executive. He b5" allowed Tiis personal animosities 1o interfere with his civic duties. Instead of giving the people any real reason for not building the subway, he tries to defend his stand hy personal abuse of those vhodisagree with him. William Brady. 22 Covert st. I favor it. Frank Langyer. 232 Linden st. Of course. There is no question but what we need more transit lines- as soon as thev can be built. Transit conditions are especially bad in the Bushwick section.

Moo Mewr. 2-r Oiilner St. Teg. It should have been started long before this. Maolyn Bantu. 938 fiates ave. Yes. by all means, as soon as possible. The public has been waiting long enough, Jaek Berryman. 2 Covert St. Certainly. Something should ,be done to improve transit on Broad-wav, too. It is bady need"'' PERSONAL TOUCH FAILED TO AID FANNIE HURST E::perts on nlesmanship say 'hat personal contact always brings home the bacon. If that Is so then here is a salesmanship projjlenf' for them to solve: Fannie. Hurst, the great Action writer, for 12 years personally tried to sell her manuscripts to all the big publishing firms before hhe 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 wordj 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 glimpse 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.

Every woman cannot be beautiful, but every worn, an can be good looking. Color Is the best friend of a woman who knows how to wear It and the worst enemy pf the one wlfo does not. However, it Is not enough that a color should not be unbecoming, it should be flattering."

You can Iol other people, but there's no use I trying to fool yourself." senator Glass, who is at present interested In the McAdoo candidacy, has at various times been fcpoken of as the "second choice" of McAdoo's supporter.
