B. & 0. Head Says Congress
Is Hampered In Solving
Dr 1steettesel News Ssrle.
Daniel Willard. president of the
Baltimore and Ohio railroad, today
told the Senate Interstate Com
mere Committee that "too much
criticism on both sides" was hinder
ing the efforts of Congress to solve
the American transportation puasle.
Answering criticism leveled at
him by William G. McAdoo, the for
mer director general of railroads,
Willard said he had not attempted
to reply in a "critical manner" to
McAdoo. but that he wasn Inclined to
believe the "real merits of the ques
tions actually before the committee
have been obscured and made more
difficult of ascertainment" because
of the constant heckling on the part
of the various persons and interests
involved in the railroad problem.
"What the railroads need more
than anything else at the present
time," Willard said, "is an oppor
tunity under the terms of the
(Each-Cummins) act to work out
their problems without unnecessary
and burdensome Interference; and I
have the utmost confidence that
they will successfully surmount
their present difficulties it given a
fair chance to do so."

Dr. Root and Dr. Collinson are

means of extermination.
The idea, Dr. Root explained, is
to catch the mosquito before he
