Independent, The (Newspaper) - September 24, 1957, Pasadena, CaliforniaImporter s diary a Tough commuting 1 by Bill Sumner a heart throbbing Story the Independent. Tuesday. Sept Mur 14, obituary notices a few years ago i boldly suggested to a bus company executive that he and men like him had driven people to automobile commuting by offering slow jolting uncomfortable rides in stinking buses which if imported to Russia As gifts would make us victorious in the cold War. The Man dismissed this plan As frivolous although if he. Had followed it through at the time his Marble said yesterday image might be standing in a Public Park today to the Delight of transient pigeons and Small boys with Sling the most efficient Machoni Nown to human be seen As Neve before in a special film pre Miere oct. 1 at the Pasadena Ivic auditorium. Through a True documentary produced by the Moody Institute of science viewers Wil take a roller coaster ride on a blood cell through Miles of blood vessels. Or. Irwin a. Moon director of the Santa Monica Institute shots. He also had the typical transit Man s viewpoint on the subject to the effect that nothing really could be done to attract the Auto commuter from his car. He also disputed my belief that anyone would give up a car Foi Public transportation. I had collected my data during a period of commuting to los Angeles. It consisted of looking at Drivers who were caught in the same traffic Jam and noting thai there were few Placid faces. There was outright anger you wondered Why they thought it was Worth it. Obviously they wanted to be somewhere else. Fortune Magazine however has taken a poll of Drivers in los Angeles san Francisco and Washington ant has found a surprising number fed up with their poll indicates that there is a demand for Public transportation. All that needs to be done evidently is to find a Way to meet it. Demand for transit the article reported that most motorists shy away from the available transportation systems because they Are too slow too crowded too expensive involve too much transferring or be cause tile service is too poor. In Sim Francisco "5% of lie Drivers jelled said they would switch to Public transportation if it came close to competing with their Auto in time Cost and convenience. In a Check of commuting in 25 cities the Magazine devised a test of Auto is. Transit. Reporters were to find the distance a Motorist could travel in 30 minutes starting from the busiest Corner in town and using the busiest outbound route. They were to measure this against the distance an outbound Transil rider could travel in the same time on the City s most heavily used transit system. The Motorist averaged 10 Miles in 30 minutes in this test. Ruses Sutt ays and streetcars mustered an average of 6.5 Miles. The exceptions were rail commuters in new York san Francisco and Newark who make much better time than the National average. The fastest transportation was provided by the Long Island Railroad is Miles in 30 this is the line that appears to stir up the most rebellion in the com muting heart. Some other facts and figures since 1950, there has been a 78% drop in the number of Street car passengers a 28% drop in the number of bus passengers and n 17% decline in users of rapid transit subway and elevated. Americans spend s1.5 billion on Public transit yearly in 1929 they thumbed million in 1956 dollars into the turn Stiles. Over the same period expenditures on Auto transportation have climbed from about million again in 19sg dollars to billion. Los horrid example los Angeles is cited As a horrid example of what can Hap pen to a City As the result of the decline of mass transit. If it continues at its present Pace according to Fortune los an Geles will have to Coyer so much land with Roadway that there will hardly be sufficient taxpaying property left to maintain the Basic services. The numbers of autos clogging los Angeles streets during Peak hours is rising at an estimated annual rate of to accommodate them the City would need 30 Miles of new six Lane freeway every year. The present rate of construction is about six Miles in a year. -------0ne might say the entire thing is simple there is the problem a genuine crisis for cities there is an evident on the part of motorists for Public transportation they will use. Then you get into trouble. Proposed rapid transit systems get bogged Down in grasping political considerations. Cities and counties let abandoned rail rights of Way slip from their grasp. Professional transit people have no imagination what Soever and on the rare instances in which they display any As with the shuttle bus Experiment on the Hollywood freeway the harried Motorist who says he wants to give up driving lets them Down with a thud. It seems As if All the average commuter wants in the Way of a transit system is something that will let him off no further than a Block from Home guarantee him a seat mud get him there with no delay. I Don t know. Perhaps we could convert los Angeles into a Gigantic three Decker parking lot. And after the commuters have found that there is no longer any reasonable purpose to be served in commuting there other than parking we could Knock it Down and convert the whole business into a game preserve. We will leave room for a Ballpark.

Without its wonder working chemistry we could t live one or. Moon said blood is the world s most Complex transportation system.

A dead human heart placet inside the machine will begin to beat in a most life like Anc rhythmic Fash out pumping normally a fluid fed into the great vein. The Moody cardiac pulse duplicator simulates the Normal heart beat and Bloomi flow permitting a photo graphic study of the intricate valve the heart.

The machine has made pos sible for the first time in medical history photographs of the valves of the heart from the inside looking out. The film is a feature length production about the human circulatory system. Or. Moon convict saws Way to Liberty Falls As rope Breaks Santa Ana. Of con vict Lester g. Rich 37, sawed and shinned his Way out of the Orange county jail yesterday and managed to escape after falling about 40 feet when his sack rope broke. Police capt. Clyde Gath right said Rich who was serving a year on a narcotics violation apparently locked himself in a closet while working in the kit Chen and then used a meat saw to Cut through two window bars.

Blood enables the body to Lave sufficient oxygen to Burn he fuel in every one of its Multi trillion tiny or. Moon said. It transports the waste gases of combustion Back to the lungs to be exhaled As in a Way most laymen can understand the film reveals like a Cross Between a dough nut and a Pancake is Dent. The red cell transports oxygen from the lungs to the cell. Its efficient operation was Only recently understood. When Institute scientists asked a research computer to Tell them what would be the Ideal shape to perform the function of the red cell the computer Drew them a picture identical to the red cell shape.
