WANTS GUIDE LINES AT STREET CORNERS
December 28, 1922 Late Financial Edition
John Boobar, heading a special committee of the Washington Safety Council, has submitted to Major Daniel J. Donovan, District auditor, a recommendation that he seek from Congress an additional appropriation of $7,900 to be used to keep freshly painted white lines at cross walks.
The committee, which comprises Mr. Boobar, Odell S. Smith and Earl Goodwin, basis its estimate on figures complied with the aid of the police department. It is pointed out by this committee that these lines are great aids in reducing traffic accidents.
The recommendations call for the employment of two painters at $4 a day each, with the remainder of the money being spent for paint.
