Israel Girl Traffic Cops Try to Help, Snarl Traffic in Rome

Three attractive, smartly uniformed girls from Israel caused a traffic jam in one of Rome’s busiest intersections today, though their intention was just the opposite. The girls, members of Israel’s traffic police corps, were sent here for a week’s stay in connection with the opening of Israel Week at a large shopping center on the Via Tritone. They were assigned to direct traffic for several hours a day on the Piazza Barberini, where several roads converge. Italian motorists, however, paid more attention to the girls than to their traffic directions.
