McCaskrin in the house, and Senator Erastus B.Telford in the sen ate. Both men are fighting hard aiid courageously for labor's measure.

LABOR PRODUCES More on Country's Roads, Report Shows Washington. Labor productivity has shown a marked increase in va rious industries during recent years. An article on productivity of railroad labor, printed in the Monthly Review, issued by the United States bureau of labor statistics, shows that the out put of railroad labor has increased about 40 per cent since 1915, and about 150 per cent since 1890 for all employes on Class 1 railroads. Percentages are based on the num ber of traffic units per employe for the period 1890 to 1915 and on the number of traffic units per "hour of duty" from 1915 to 1926. While the study proves that these increases were almost uninterrupted, no attempt is made to apportion the credit for the improvement in out put as between increased efficiency of labor, the introduction of new ma chinery or processes, better manage ment or of increased traffic.
