CORPORATION TRADE 31 ARK
APPEARS ON STREET CARS.
N. Webster Says the Sign Means Mo
tion nnd Substantiality Was
Adopted From the Ancients.
Alves Dixon calls it a "triskellion."
Clyde Moss calls it a "mulligan."
What It really is would be hard to
explain unless the explanation was ac
companied by charts and diagrams.
On the sunny side of all street cars,
supply wagons and other rolling stock
owned by the El Paso Electric Railwaj
company now appears a little "thing-a-ma-bob"
that looks like a "whirlygis',
enclosed in a pyramid.
In reality it is the insignia of th
Stone Webster corporation and its ap
pearance on all ofthe rolling stock Is
in compliance with the instructions
from the Boston office to display th
corporation's crest in a conspicuous
place. The coat of arms of the com
pany is done in black and red and con
sists of the three cornered symbol of
the ancients for motion, with the pyra
mid, the emblem of substantiality.
Motion plus substantiality is the way
the sign reads to those who are up o
things ancient and arable.
To the average strap hanger it means
nothing more than a band of red paint
surrounded by black.
