They must be moved, and moved swiftly, by rail, by truck, by boat to their destination. A successful trans potation system depends chiefly on three factors: first, fixed plant equipment, which means motor roads, railroad tracks, navigable waterways and such things as terminals, docks and repair shops; second, carrier equipment in the form of freight cars, trucks, buses, barges, pipe lines; third, the use to which these facilities are put. With 246.000 miles of track—30 per cent of the world's railroad mileage—1,300.000 miles of sur faced roads, 28,000 miles of nav igable inland waterways and 310,000 miles of pipe line, the United States has enough fixed plant to meet the severest tests. We are now not only adding to equipment, but we are making better use of the facilities we have. Railroads, which carry 61 per cent of our total freight load, last year handled 33.000,000,000 ton-miles more than In the peak year of 1929. To do this, the loading, unloading and terminal ' handling of freight cars had to be speeded up; roundabout rout ings had to be curtailed. The average load carried by a freight car was raised nine-tenths of a ton—a saving in space equal to 26,000 freight cars. Ice-breaking machines opened the Great Lakes shipping season earlier than usual in 1941, This made possible an all-time record move ment of iron ore by Lake boats. More Equipment Added. * Since September, 1939, the railroads have added 150,000 new freight cars and 75,000 more are on order. They have 1,000 new locomotives and another 600 are on order. Trucks have In creased from 4,600,000 to 5,000,000 in the past year; 4,500 miles of new pipe linp have been added. Freight traffic, however, has Increased to the point where It is now In close balance with the carrier capacity of the country. To care for the added freight that war will bring—an increase esti mated at more than 10 per cent in 1942—new equipment will be needed and more Ingenuity ex ercised in using the equipment we have. The rationing of rub ber tires will have repercussion* all through the transportation system, and may necessitate far reaching reorganization and co ordination of all forces of trans portation. This will be done by the newly created Office of Di rector of Transportation. To more than 300 communitie* in the country, war work ha* • brought a serious housing prob lem. For 15 months 10 Gov ernment agencies, working un der the Office of the Co-ordina tor of Defense Housing, have been pushing a $792,000,000 pro gram of public housing construc tion to provide these worker* with shelter at reasonable rents. As of late December, 129,154 housing units had been planned, of which 63,684 were completed. x More than 43,000 homes are now under construction, with another 20,000 waiting on the appropria tion of additional funds by Con gress. In the temporary shel ter field, 8,745 trailers and port able homes and 11,051 dormitory units have been provided. 400,000 Privately Financed. Besides these Government financed homes, it is estimated another 400,000 privately financed houses have been erected in these same defense areas. , Lacking formal rent-control powers, which are part of the price control bill pending in Con gress, the Office of Price Admin istration's efforts to prevent rent profiteering have been restricted largely to the formation of so called “fair rent" committees ip some 150 defense areas. The usual practice is for the com mittee to select a date and pub lish a statement saying that as of that date rents were fair. Complaint* by tenants are in vestigated. If landlords refuse to lower their rents, public pres sure is exerted. In the District of Columbia where the vast ex pansion of the Government's war ' activities has resulted in a new high In the number of Govern ment employes, rents have been frozen as of January 1, 1041, by an act of Congress. So that the people may know at all times what their Govern ment is doing, Information offi cer* arc attached to each of the Government agencies. Questions asked by mail are answered by the United States Information Service. In addition to press re leases, the Information Division of the Office for Emergency Man agement Issues pamphlets on the work of the wartime agencies. The Office of Facte and Figures has been directed to "formulate programs designed to facilitate a widespread and accurate under standing of the status and prog ress of the national defense ef fort." Censorship Office Set Up. But It is also necessary to pre vent any news of military value from reaching the enemy. To this end, an Office of Censorship was established on December 19, with authority to control all communications between the United States and foreign coun tries. Troop movements will hence forth be secret even In our own country, as ship sailings have been for a long time. Detailed weather forecasts can no longer be published, since they would furnish a timetable for enemy bombers and submarines. It will also be necessary to discontinue the publication of certain in formation regarding contracts, the selection of plant sites and other matters relating to pro curement and production. In military and naval opera tions there will of necessity be delays in giving fuU reports to the public. One of the favorite propaganda tactics of the enemy is to broadcast exaggerated ru mors partly to spread confusion and consternation and partly to force denials and thus receive information as to the location of forces. As soon as the facts can be told without aiding the enemy, they will be announced officially. Though censorship has been established, it functions on a voluntary basis, so far as the publishing and broadcasting of news within the country is con cerned. The newspapers and radio chains have been asked to exercise certain self-restraints. The censor feels they have met the request loyally and whole heartedly. (To Be Concluded.)
