though It was felt that as tho cobt of

In money wages.
"If events are left to tako tho natural
courso, the establishment of post-war
prices would probably bf a difficult and
protracted matter j-lnco prices pi ono
commodity affect other commodities and

"valuable factor In the conduct of the
war should bo availed of to ease and
expedite the processes of readjustment
and that the manufacturers of the coun

step. After a full discussion of the
situation which occupied the greater
part of the daj a resolution was
adopted asking the Secretary of Com

President to the appointment of a com
mittee to deal with the situation.
"It was contemplated that this com

representatives of the 'basic industries
of the country to examine conditions

government departments and other buy

be willing to sell, with a view to main
raining or restoring business activity to
a full volume.
"It was felt that time was the very
essence of the problem and that, 'there
fore, the appointment and action of the
commltteo should proceed with all possi

of sixty' centimeter gauge for the

truck locomotives ot a special type
known as the Pechot, which were built
throughout to the metrio sjstem of

entirely new in the practice of the works
the locomotives were completed and
shipped with unusual dispatch.
The Russian locomotives Included a

ularly known as "Pershing engines" At
the time the armistice was signed they
were scheduled for completion at the
rate of 300 per month, and virtually the
entire capacity of the Baldwin plant
was being devoted to their construction
