In New York passenger cars will be exhibited on four floors of Grand Central Palace, while the truck exhibit will be held in the Eighth Coast Artillery armory, the largest in the United States. Tbe Chicago passenger car show will be held in the Coliseum and armory, while trucks will be displayed in the International Amphitheater. In addition to this comprehensive display of cars and accessorie?;, a se ries of conferences on transportation problems has been incorporated In the motor truck divisions of the shows. These conferences have arousej gen eral interest as a clearing house for ideas gained during the war and re construction periods and made con crete in new models of cars and ac cessories on display. A-gxIHary To the R. R. Motor transportation as an auxili ary to the railroad is one of the topics of special timeliness to be discussed during the conferences. Contre ry to the general belief, the motor truck Is not competing with the railways, but is aiding the roads to solve a national ransportation problem that Is really serious. Motor trucks are replacing railroads on the short haul, which has been unprofitable and in many in stances extravagant transportation. It is demonstrating to railroads that It can pick up and haul from the branch receiving stations !n and around a large city to the main or outbound atatlon considerably faster aBil.cbeap??" th?n the ?witch engine. Tue truck has a great advantage over the branch line railroad in that it baa no expensive initial Investment no payments to be made for right of way, no bridges or grades to con struct. If the truck or trucks do not Pay. bclag a mobile unit they can be transferred elsewhere. Were it easy practical or profitable many rail road tracks would be torn up and re placed elsewhere on many branch lines today. Utilisation of motor trucks for feed ers to the main line railways, and for short haul work, will conserve Carbon Deposits or OU Between Plug Points.

The railway traffic for a given year was one trillion ton miles. To transport this tonnage re quired 100.000,000 tons of coal and 40.000.000 barrels of fuel oil, and of this 12 per cent of the coal was con sumed for railway purposes. With the construction of terminals and greater use of trucks to feed these and the main lines, the elimination of expensive and unpractical equipment, coal consuming equipment, will be feasible. Construction 'of large capacity trucks, of trailers, and the use of demountable bodies that permit of the truck shuttling back and forth, as well as scientific loading apparatus, spells decreased transportation costs. Motor highway transportation en gineers have made rapid progress during tbe past year, and practical demonstration of the devices will be a feature of the motor truck show.
