| went through just the stage in which
the truck haulage proposition is now
| immersed."
It will be recalled that electric
lines started out of the large cities
I and went far into the country, but
reached tlie Juniping-off place with
no line beyond. Gradually these
lines were extended and the con
nections were made. The compan
ies arranged for interchanges of
passengers, and it became possible
to purchase a ticket for journeys of
hundreds of miles between main
cities and to travel in comfort the
entire distance and in time ap
proaching railroad schedules. To
day the truck haulage business is on
a par in many ways with the earlier
days of interurban electric lines, and
the problem of the future will be tlie
connecting up of the many freight
ing companies who are so success
fully using motor trucks, and the
arrangements of a system of ex
change of freight at points along
the routes. Then it will be possible
to ship through freight with every
promise bf its reaching its destina
tion in the shortest possible space
of time and with the least amount
of damage, i'nder organisation the
companies will arrange moans to call
for the freight at the door of the
shipper tit the terminals, and freight
for almost any point will lie taken
without question. As America's
great road system is improved to
meet the exigencies of the times the
ultimate will be reached.
GOVERNMENT
WORK TO KEEP
LABOR BUSY
War Labor Bourd Plans lo
Start Enormous Public i
I
Projects at Oonce
Washington, Nov. 22.—The War ;
Labor l'ulicies Board has now become
a peace policies board and has set
out to realize the determination of
American labor as*represented by
Samuel Gompcrs to resist all efforts
to lengthen the day or shorten the i
pay of the workingman consequent
upon the coming of peace.
| Dr. Frankfurter and his associates,
I however, realize that mere announce- |
ment by Mr. Gompers or anybody j
else that the short day and the long i
pay are going to stick are mere verbal
defiances unless tne economic foun- ,
dation can be provided. If there are j
more men than jobs and more pro- J
ductlon than consumption then there j
is going to be competition for the at- I
tenuated payroll and the elongated j
job.
A graphic illustration of this fact j
has already appeared in the shipyards. I
The efficiency of the workers at Hog 1
Island has increased 20 per cent, since j
the armistice was declared.
One day of fear that a good job
might be lost accomplished more than j
all the exhortations, patriotic ap- '
peals, competitive stunts and uplift
work of a year. From now on ships j
will be built faster than they were j
built during the war, for with the I
end of the war has come the belief |
that there will soon be more* men than l
jobs around shipyards.
Five objective'. Sought
The War Labor Policies-Board rec- i
ognizes that wages come out of |
wealth production and that the only
chance there is for keeping them up
to their present level is to crowd
production and industrial activity to
the limit. So it has laid down live
objectives for the public policy de
signed to meet the readjustment po
riad without serious disturbances.
These are:
First—Avoidance of a large vol
ume of unemployment.
Second Maintenance of labor
standards.
Third—Avoidance of a falling off
to a serious extent of rates of wages.
Fourth—Maintenance <sf produc
tion at a high level.
Fifth—Removal of possibility of
business depression.
The first great step forward the at
tainment of these ends is to be the
immediate inauguration of public
works on a great scale by the Fed
eral government. The administration
is now at work on an appropriation
scheme for starting river and harbor
work, national highroads and recla
mation projects on an ambitious
scale. This program will be laid be
fore Congress after it meets in its
second session in December, and every
effort will be made to (jecure prompt
action. Every ordinary government
project from irrigation to lighthouses
that was held up or slowed down on
account of the war will be resumed,
and Congress will be asked to auth
orize new projects on a vast scale.
Irrigation Work to Sturt
Secretary Lane says that irrigation
projects already surveyed, planned
and estimated on can put 100,000 men
at work the minute Congress presses
tlie treasury button.
Moreover, the moment Congress
acts on this colossal scheme for the
reclamation of arid, wet and cut-over
lands he can put another half million
to work.
A national highways program has
been outlined on such a magnificent
scale that the mere mention of It he
fore the war would have been pre
sumptive evidence of Insanity. Ex
tension of inland waterways is to
he advocated as indispensable to/the
solution of tlie nation's inland trans
port problem.
The railways are to be urged to
"cut loose" at once, as asked by the
steel men. with orders for steel and
equipment.
Catches Seven Cranes;
Judge Was After Fish;
Birds Wanted the Bait
Dallas, Tex. Droughty eondi- 1
Hons in western Texas have driven
large numbers of long-necked cranes •
into the open and made them so >
hold that they put up a stubborn j
fight with fishermen for "their !
bait," according to Assistant Attor
ney General John C. Wall, who has
just returned from the Colorado
liivcr. Judge Wall declared that it
was necessary to keep'the halt hid
den to prevent cranes from steal
ing it.
That the cranes are determined
to have food is evident front the
number Judge Wall caught on hooks
while on his fishing trip. Seven
lean, long-necked denizens of the
marshes were taken from his hooks
in one week.
Judge Wall declared he was us
ing two lines while fishing and that
while one line was in .the water tlie
other, baited, lay on the ground.
Starving cranes sneaked up behind
the judge and swallowed the min
nows on the line which lay on the
ground. Some of tlsem put up des
perate tights and had to be shot'
before they could be tuken from the
hooks.
Oversupply of Soft .
Coal Is Alleged
Now York—During the first seven
months of the present coal year,
April to October, 368,858,000 net
tons of bituminous coal were pro
duced In America, an increase of
42.437,000 over the output for the
similar period last year, according
to Coal Age. It is claimed that
there is an oversupply of soft coal
in almost every section of the
•country, and many mines are unable
to dispose of their output.
It is said further that the steel
mills and blast furnaces are so tvell
suppiejj with soft coal that they
will not come into the market for
! mpre until they can utilize their
[large stocks in manufacturing pcaee-
I time products. This is said to be
I true of almost every industry. Rut,
pointing to post-war activities, Coul
Age wunts to know who can tell
h6w long these favorable conditions
will continue, and suys the shortage
"which now exists on paper in the
Fuel Administration records" may
become a reality.
Meanwhile it is said that the out
put of unthracite from April 1 to
date, is , behind the total production
for the same period last year, the
estimated comparison being 60,688,-
000 net tons, against 60,839,000. In
creased wages und numbers of em
ployes in hard coal' production are
expected to cause an upward trend
output.
