HARRIMAX FAVORED PLAX
This plan of giving a broad training
in the operating department was one
which had been regarded with great
interest by the late E. H.. Harriman. It
has been observed that members of the
mechanical and- engineering depart
ments were handicapped in the path to
promotion to general manager or vice
president as compared with the men
more directly engaged in the handling
of trains, such as train masters and
superintendents. . -
One result of the plan Is said to be
more system in the freedom of com
znusication between departments, while
reducing the number of letters written
by over 1,000 a day.
