Burlington Line to Reduce Force in West LINCOLN, Neb., Dec. 15.—Between 5 and 7 per cent of the Burlington em ployes west of the Missouri River will lose their jobs by reason of an order just issued from headquarters. The move is made to meet the emergency of re duced tonnage and the necessity of keep ing the road on an efficient and economi cal basis. Reductions in employes will be heavi est In departments doing work that can be deferred until spring. Ten pr cent of railroad shop employe.*, 25 per cent of extra gang forces and 15 per cent of track laborers will be discharged, it is announced. DEPENDABILITY MOTIVE power —sufficient locomotives fit for maximum service—is the prime factor of dependable railroad operation, particularly dur ing the stress of winter storms. And the public will be interested to knew the present state of preparedness of these lines —what has been done to insure the fulfilment of their shipping and traveling necessities. Only motive power of the highest order can consistently win the battles against zero tempera tures, mountainous snow-drifts, ice-laden tracks and switches and wintry gales, which multiply the difficulties of every train over every mile of line. To insure dependability of service under the adverse conditions of winter operation, an inten sive campaign for motive-power preparedness has been prosecuted by these lines. Immediately following the termination of Fed eral control last March, 206 new locomotives were ordered constructed, 82 of which are already in service. Others are being delivered daily, and the balance are well advanced in the course of construction. But measured by the total number of efficient locomotives added to active service, the rehabilitation program of the New York Central Lines amounts to several times the new construction schedule. In the eight months ended November first, 4,029 locomotives, or 63% of the total number owned by the New York Central Lines, have been given “heavy” repairs, which, for practical pur poses, makes them new locomotives. The progress that is being made is an assurance to the public that the New York Central Lines recognize the obligations of preparedness.

ARMENIAN AID IS EMPHASIZED Blizzards Force Call for As sistance to Orphans. The appeal of the Armenian orphan for a continuation of American support throughout the winter reached the In diana committee for Near East Relief yesterday in urgent telegraphic dispatches from New York headquarters. In order to meet demands for imme diate assistance the executive committee of the national organization has been compelled to shoulder an indebtedness of $1,500,000, according to State Director Clarence D. Royse. Winter blizzards have set in through Armenia and Syria and the demand on Near East Relief funds is so strong that no additional children can be admitted to the near east orphanages, it is ex plained. “Snow knee deep—orphanages over crowded,” says a cable forwarded to the Indiana committee. At the present time 110,000 orphans are In the custody of Near East Relief. It is estimated that 250.000 more children are wandering about homeless and uncored for. "All because their parents refused to yield their Christian religion and because they supported our allies In the tforld War,” said Mrs. E. C. Rumpler, chair man of the woman's division of the In diana committee. “What a glorious thing it would be if every Indiana woman who can afford it would adopt one of these babies."
