commission, have had a vexatious ex experience.

get anything like the number of cars
in demand and have had to contend
again : congestion at certain centers
while other sections suffered.
First They had to press into ser service

to get coal for the northwestern states

that district up to the early part of

: Second They had to employ every
available car to rush raw materials
for munitions and other war work up

certain, states, mostly in the south, to
the sites of the various national army
cantonments. This produced conges congestion

conditions. ;yy y y;'
It will be'noted that in all of these
cases" the haul was one way. The
movement was always towards the
north, with nothing to" be hauled back,
so that the rolling stock" was used
only to half its capacity. ;
The Southern railroad, the Atlantic
Coast Line, and ., the r Seaboard, all
feeding the South with their : lines,
have been forced to loan -many cars
to "other railroads and on, account of
local congestion it is impossible1 to get
them back, so that the car famine for

The railroads war board with the'
approval of Secretary McAdoo, as

now going to; kill two birdswith one

and will have the cars come back

This will, it is believed, not only
