Electric Shocks for Those
Who Signal City Hall "Lifts"
The new elevators in the city hall
themselves are all right. They never
lay down as did the old ones and
make the city employes take to the
stairs. But the button caps on the
elevator indicators have a habit of
coming off and when one tries to push
the button to bring the elevator to
his floor he is likely' to get an elec
tric shock that jars him to his knees.
Several caps have been lost and new.
ones ordered have not arrived.
