Illinois Central Presents Comparative
Costs of Passenger Fares Americans pay more for nearly everything they buy than do Europeans. Thei are able to pay more because their wages are relatively higher. There is one not able exception, however-passenger transportation charges in this country are sub stantially lower. Although there has been a recent increase in American passenger fares, Ameri cans still pay less for traveling accommodations than Europeans. The following is a comparison between passenger fares charged in the United States, the points be ing on the Illinois Central System, and fares paid by European traveling similar distances: pistance Railroad Sleeping Total SlMiles Fare Car R.

Prague, Czecho-Slov 786 93.13 24.96 118.09 All American fares given in the table include a war tax of 8 per cent. The Americau sleeping-car fares are for lower berths. 'Fhe American custom of handling free of charge, as much baggage as the ordi nary passenger carries is unknown abroad. In addition, baggage rates in Europa are much higher than in the United States. This condition should be considered in comparing passenger fares in the various countries. In the United States the railroads collect a surcharge on sleeping-car fares, which is included in the above table. 'his surcharge helps to meet the cost of hauling the heavier cars required, in which fewer passengers are carried. During 1919 the Illinois Central hauled 1 % gross tons of weight for each coach passenger carried, and 4.4 gross tons of weight for each sleeping-car passenger carried. Not to collect the surcharge, therefore, would obviously be a discrimina tion against the coach passenger, and an injustice to the railroad. The costs of facilities for rendering pass-nger service have increased greatly. The average passenger coach cost $12,400 in 1914; it now costs $30,300, an increase of 144 per cent. The average passenger locomotive cost $20,000 in 1914; it now costs $65,000, an increase of 225 per cent. There have been heavy increases in the costs of wages, fuel and other material. These are some of the reasons why passenger fares are necessarily higher now than they were in former years. Constructive criticism and suggestions are invited. C. H. M~ARKHAM, President, Illinois Central Railroad Company. HOW THE CHFVROLET CAME TO COVINGTON How the Chevrolet was almost unknown in Covington less than two years ago and to-day is one of the most pop ular cars is an interesting story which we will be pleas ed to relate to you. How we hesitated about signing the Dealers' Contract offeredfus feeling that the Chevrolet Model 490 was too light, or, we might say, too dainty for our rough roads. How we tried out the first car-passed out the words to . "treat it rough," and still this car made good, and we were sold to CHEVROLET. • Now we have Chevrolet owriers-satisfied owners in all sections of the parish-Slidell, Folsom, Covington and Madisonville. The Chevrolet inade good with us and with our owners. We found: Quality rather than quantity of material is the reason S for Chevrolet efficiency. * Where weight has formerly bean considered essential to comfort and endutrance, ChevrOlet has substituted sheer strength. Balance has been secured by an even distribution of right weight. Riding and driving ease has been added to by adequate spring suspension. Each body and chassis has been nicely proportioned to the power of the valve-in-head motor-famous for de veloping the utmost power from fuel. ChevrTolet knows no waste effort--its capacity knows no strain. Long life is assured all vital parts-and to tires. " In addition to the saving in first cost, there is the cer tain economy of operation. Mechanically and economically, Chevrolet appeals to sound reason. In addition, there are numberless details of appearance and equipment that will appeal to your taste. We can sell you a Model 490 Chevrolet for $925--$325 cash, balance in 12 monthly payments. F. G.
