Big Spring Daily Herald (Newspaper) - June 23, 1930, Big Spring, Texas Vol. 2 no. .-,29 eight pages today big Spring Texas monday evening june 23, 1930 associated press leased wire a Community picnic tonight testimony is concluded in Ira Mckee trial at Lamesa Home town talk by Beddy or. Smit Ham s announcement that the Jones Valley sewer Coiler 1 lion system will be the first started should meet with the thanks Rind appreciation of the residents of that part of town. As Well As the entire citizenship this sewer system i. A very great emergency measure but. Thank goofiness we can go head and make the improvements Pel manent. A Jones Valley was promised re we r service As quickly As it could be Given and that Promise is being carried out. It just occurs to us that some 2r, citizens of Rig Spring ought to a Xian inside track into the realm of the Bonehead club we allude to the Chautauqua a Iaac holders the know what we mean. Well be where haul Vicker and Ion More of the Midland boys hive been Down a Abilene talking t jul inc Ely about the of building a state Highway from Midland to Andrews Hobbs Lovington. Carlsbad yeah been tellin you All along we Are standing in a very danger on position relative to highways we re asleep at the Post. And not living to awake when we go to discuss our roads with the commission t or some other official some to Ody always gets argumentative my first thing you know the whole works is gummed. If there Stine thing in the world this town and this county ought to a u it is to get along with the Sta Highway commission and to Quot ride v the them they Aie anxious to go a a. As the Law allows them to go in aiding us to build roads what i hit e ran we ask ? oui i suggestion that allowing be Birle to take tight hand turns on Ted lights at Street intersections n get help traffic conditions has fit a w n the follow ing comment from the Abilene reporter Kim tit i App till St k the Rig Spring net Ald inquires if it would t be a Good thing to get nut righthand turns on red lights at certain Street Intel sections from the experience of cities which have tried the plan the answer is. It would anything that facilitates the movement of to of Fie that gets cats out of the Way of other cats and a it eed up the movement of Moto. Traffic is a Good thing. I Ndeki the right turn plan Chis get through the Intel sect Ion and make a Gie a Light at the next a Tri Section be furs the signals change under the old system the game cars would still he Waling Agami the red Light while Otlien t ars piled up behind them Many cities have a traffic system that slows up movement instead of facilitating it. Expert opinion Long ago swung around to the conviction that the prime object of All traffic control is to Speed up the movement of vehicles Rathel than be lard it. In every City there ate signal lights where none is needed ther. Sole effect is to slow up the move ment of traffic and cause conge.t on at focal Points no City should install a signal system without first making an intensive study of conditions we ate always learning something new about traffic. In the City of Abilene for instance the ironclad Rule Tor years was that car must swing out to the Middle of the intersection before turning left \ few weeks ago this Rule was hanged and cars were permitted to Start the left turn As soon As they entered the intersection.
