ment's government's loss from operating the rail railroads
roads railroads in 1918 is calculated by the
railroad" administration officials at
less than one hundred and fifty, mill million

income the government will receive

rates will permit the government to
recoup the loss, officials believe.
If Congress does not approve the
five-year extension of federal control,
and the president carries out the an

roads to private management at an
early date, the government loss will
not be made up. The deficit does -not
