R. R.RED ΤίΡΕ Now "One Waybill,'' Railroad er's Dream, Comes True the First of May. Bv MILTON" BRONNER. "WASHINGTON, April 12.—Begin ning; May 1 a revolution will occur in American freight railroading. A car of goods can be shipped from î ^•ew York to San Francisco or from Cleveland to New Orleans, transferred from railroad to railroad and from terminal to terminal, all on one way bill. For years railroad men have dream ed of this, just as they dreamed oi fetan dard iîcing freight cars and engines, And just as it took government con trol and Director-General McAdoo tc bring- njbout the latter, eo again it ha« taken McADoo to put thrlougrh thii waybill improvement. In the past when a car was shipped from New York to San Francisco 11 might be handled by four different railroads. That would mean lour dif ferent waybills. Each waybill hel< good until the car reached the freigh terminal point of that particular road Then the car was shunted around the terminal yards until^the clerks made out a new waybill and delivered it tc the yurdmaster. The latter then se his forcée to work picking out thi: oar and delivering it to the next roa< that was to handle it. So on along th( rout*. McAdoo and his experts have Invent ed a universal inter-line waybill, and a standard form is to be used by all roads under government control. The waybill is made out in full practically once for all and travels right with the conductor handling: the car. The only additions to it are stamps placed upon it by Junction agente. Freight handling is thus simplified, /the cost of printing: many waybills is abolished and considerable clerical forces in the various freight termin al yards can be done away witih. Recruiting Office Appeals for Recruifs from State A caJl for 150,000 men was Issued ; Saturday by Provost Marshall Crowd i ttr, and Major J. E. Bloom of the Army LlRecroltinff Station, 86 Park place, I Newark, jitates that the call means that Tew Jersey le expected to furnlsn a Hiota of 2,117 men. It Is pointed oat that the call will be eventually and readily met ehrougrh the selective ser vice colls, but the more men that vol unteer, who are not eubjejct to draft, the lees will be the number required under the selective service call, there for young men eighteen to twenty-one, "boys thandy with tools, men thirty one to forty-one, arc urged to volun teer and get Into training- for foreign service as quickly as possible. It is pointed out that the number at volunteers from New Jersey last month was 5J4 men. Of this number Newark alone furniehed 29β. Volun teers are needed now more than ever, on account of the urgent appeal from abroad for American soldiers. A copy of a coanmunlcaAlon from J. Henly Frier, Jr., cautain of infantry, sent to tlhe local recruiting office by Major J. E. Bloom, requests that about one hundred recruits be sent to the machine gun company, 49th Infantry.

'The men fjhould be intelligent and have some education otherwise they will not un deretand the methods of lire and dis astrous résulta will follow." Any man wishing to join this at tractive branch of the service may ajp ply at the local rocruiting station, ISO Smith street. Lost His Language WITH Tire AMERICAN ARMY ON THE LORRAINE FRONT, March 14 (By mail):—He was a black boy from Alabama—lonesome. He had been working in a stone quarry most all day and no one had said a word to him. He happened to look across the way and there was another black joy In khaki. The other black boy vas a French colonial, but the Am erican black boy looked only at the 'ace and the color of the uniform. " 'Low nlggah, how's tricks?" was he opening social parry. No answer. "Ah say, niggah, docs you know Vh's talkln to you?" Then astonishment. From the other jlack came a rattle of French that would put a machine gun to shame. The black boy from Alabama gasp sd. He couldn't believe his eyes or bis ears. "Foh da Gawd's sake, nlggah, has you been mixed up with these Frenchers so much you done lost yo' own language?" and he went back to work.
