Express Bus Service
Would Ease Parking,
Howatt Survey Finds
Expansion of express bus service
during rush periods would make a
drastic cut into the downtown park
ing problem, according to results of a
survey revealed by P. Y. K. Howatt,
chairman of the District’s Motor
Vehicle Parking Agency.
was answered “yes” by 50 per cent
of those replying to a recent series
of questions in American Automo
bile Association publications, Mr.
Howatt yesterday told the Road
Gang, a group of executives inter
ested in various phases of highway
transportation, at a meeting in the
Willatd Hotel.
Only about 10 per cent of the
answers turned a definite thumbs
down on the idea of riding an ex
press bus to and from work, the
speaker said. He pointed to the
use of fast express buses as one of
the methods of attacking Washing
ton’s downtown parking problem.
Fifty per cent of the morning rush
traffic now carried by Capital Tran
sit. C, n hoses moves on “limited
stop” buses, he said he had learned
from the company president. But
the effective use of express buses
must await a centrally controlled
traffic signal system which would
permit flexible traffic light synchro
nization. he declared.
Mr. Howatt reported opening of
Washington’s first "fringe” parking
lot. The lot, at Second and Con
stitution avenue N.W., provides all
day parking space and quick trans
portation to the center of the busi
ness district for a 25-cent fee.
J Establishment of a ring of such
j lots around the business distrcit is
I one of the parking agency’s aims in
attacking the parking problem, he
| said.
With a declaration that the park
ing problem must be solved by private
enterprise, Mr. Howatt described the
parking agency's advice and aid to
p investors. He revealed plans for a
10-story office building here, to be
built around a parking-garage core.
| The first building of its kind, it
j would permit tenants to drive their
1 cars in, park on their own floor, and
walk a few step* to their offices.
Charles T. McGavin, chief economic
analyst for the District Highway De
partment, also discussed Washing
! ton’s parking problem.

Navy to Use New System
In Training of Aviators
Better naval aviators, produced
in a shorter time and at less cost,
are expected to result from a new
system inaugurated by the Navy.
All students in the future will be
trained in the SNJ Texan, a low
wing monoplane with many of the
aspects of the modern operational
type of aircraft.
- Training heretofore has been in
what are known in the service as
Yellow Perils, light biplanes. These
planes were designed to allow the
beginrter to make many errors with
out causing serious difficulty. On
the other hand, it has been found
the old system developed what were
described as numerous bad habits
which had to be “unlearned” be
fore the beginner was capable of
handling combat aircraft safely. .

The railroads have received 44 “rules”
demands from the leaders of the operating
unions, representing engineers, firemen,
conductors, trainmen and switchmen.
They say they are seeking only changes in
working conditions—not a wage increase.
More Money For Less Work
But what kind of rules are being asked
for? Twenty-eight of them would compel
railroads to pay more money for the
same, or less work; 7 would require ad
ditional and unnecessary men to do the
same work; the rest would bring about
changes in operating practices at in
creased cost.
For Instance:
The Union leaders demand additional
train and engine crews on Diesel-powered
trains—one full crew for every power unit
in the locomotive. A freight train hauled
by a 4-unit Diesel would have to carry
4 engineers, 4 firemen, 4 conductors, and
at least 8 brakemen, or a total of 20 men
instead of 5.
“Made Work”—Sheer Waste
The Union leaders demand that full-length
freight trains be cut to about half their
length, even though such trains are most
efficient for low-cost service to you. This
rule would call for twice as many locomo
tives, would double the number of trains,
and make accidents more likely.
Additiohal equipment, yards, and other
facilities required to take care of these
short trains would cost hundreds of mil
lions. What the Union leaders really want
is to make more jobs.
is performed as a part of the same day’s
work. The crew would get at least two days'
pay for one day's work.
The Union leaders demand that the
present basic day for passenger conduc
tors and trainmen be reduced from 150
to 100 miles, which would have the effect
of increasing their pay 50%. Such a run
often takes only two or three hours!
You Can't Alford This Waste
Demands like these are against the in
terests of the whole American people,
who depend on railroad service for
nearly everything they eat, wear and use.
These rules would cost a billion dollars
annually—a gigantic waste which neither
the railroads nor the country can afford.
Railroad workers are good citizens and
good employes, with pride in their call
ing. Their record during the war was out
standing. We do not believe they fully
understand the “featherbed” rules which
the Union leaders are demanding. We do
not believe they understand the harmful
results which these rules would have to
the railroad industry, to the millions of
men and women dependent on railroads
for their livelihood, and to the shipping
and consuming public. .
The great strength or America is m
production-an honest day’s work for
an honest day’s pay.
For only through greater production can
we hope to stop the steady upward surge
of living costs.
Surely, if ever there was a time in our
history when we needed to work, not
waste, this is it
The Union leaders demand that when a crew in
one class of service perform incidental service of
another class, they will be paid not less than a
day’s pay for each class, even though all service
