Note.- The basic data are the weekly barloading statistics published by the American Railway Association. These have been arranged in I-week groups rather than in months to avoid the necessity of splitting
weeks. This arrangement, however, has the disadvantage that the first four week period ending on Saturday in 932, for example, was seasonally one day earlier than in the preceding year, and after the
second period the difference irs days on account of February 29. This difficulty could be largely avoided either by reforming the OreRorian calendar or by having the American Railway Association make
its re orting week end on a different week day each year with one 8 day period at end of year. The figures are adjusted to make each holiday fall in the same numbered period each year. The seasonal per-
eontags used are based onthe 5 years, 1926-930 and reulti adjusted figures are plotted both actually and as a 3 period moving average except .for the last period on the chart. The use of the 13
periods in thiyears ouchart should not b same day construed as an advocacy of the 13-month as against the 12-month lan of reforming the calendar on the year-day principle. In both plans corresponding weeks in dif-
ferent years would end on the same day of the month.
