Police keep traffic duties A resolution to authorize Uic cily manager to replace con- stables with commissionaires for traffic control duty at May- or Magrath Drive and 5th Ave. S. was defeated by city council Monday. A suggestion that commision- aires also be put on duty at Scenic Drive and 15th St. S. if advance warning signs are in- sufficient, was included in tne resolution. Alderman Chick Chichester, who submitted the motion, said the cost of patrolling these areas would be considerably reduced with the use of com- missionaires. The school patrols at the Sce- nic Drive intersection seem to be working weU, he said, but there are still children who do not cross at the crosswalk. The commissionaires would have more authority to encourage Ihc children to use the cross- walk, he. said.
