he most iintinrtant anil drastic
move whicli the Uniteu Mateu
has ever ni;nlc in connection With
control of the operations of rail
roads was made yesterday by the
war hoard, with the two fold
purpose of relieving the present
congested trafhc and insuring a '
continued operation ot transpor- .
tation lines, thus insuring sup- .
plies for the camps, the forces in
France, the navy, the people at
home anl the Allies. It followed
a conference which was" held by
government officials' and railroad
heads at whicli the agreement '
was reached that was preliniin-' i ; "

All railroad lines fast ot Chi- , ,;.

single railroad syste.m by the ;
war board, in accordance .with -.'
the decision ' reached yesterday .'....
and announced early last evening.
The trackage, the rolling ,tock,
locomotives, freight and passen- ..
ger cars, are all to fre pooled re
gardless of their ownership. This
vast system will bt operated by .;'
a, commission composed of the
vice presidents of all of the rail-' ;,
roads that are so pooled but un-
der the supervision of . the war
board. '' -r", '.;."' .v
Among the transportation lines
so taken over are some of the .
largest and strongest railroad
corporations in the United States
such as the New York Central,
Pennsylvania and Baltimore and
Ohio systems. '
Since the mobilization of the
national army commenced the
congestion that had already ex
isted for the Eastern railroads
has continued to grow steadily
worse. There were complaints of
car shortages. "Railroads blamed
this to other roads not returning
their "empties" from jniint ,of
destination as fast as they were
unloaded, or delaying in the un
loading of the delivered cars. -A
lack of unity of effort was' -apparent
despite the desire of the
various roads to keep their traf
fic moving and their roads: open.
On top of this serious situation
there have been Increasingly loud
demands from the, brotherhoods
of trainworkers for increased pay.
This situation the direct govern
mental control is expected to
speedily clarify. 1 ,
In the operation of the pooled
system, cars are to be hurried to
points where freight is accumu
lating or has already piled up. ' A
single systerp will thus supplant
the many headed transportation
service that has heretofore pre
vailed. '.'' '
