    Note: Epigraph: "In the progressive city of London, England, the campaign against noise continues, with the abolition of trams from main streets the employment of "phons" is to be considered, A "phon" is the unit for measuring sound, and no vehicle may emit more than 90 "phons" at a distance of 18 feet. Meantime, Melbourne increases its electric trams and its noise, and cheerfully ignores its "phons.""
