from accidents at railway crossings
may be - eliminated, according to a
statement issued by the public rela
tions department of the Chesapeake
and 'Ohio 'railway. These are: first,
in the public mind, the elimination of
the highway crossings, and Becor.d, the
education of the public to exercise
care In the negotiation of these rail
way crossings. - " .
It has been pointed out that during
1920, 1,791 persona were killed, and
5,077 were injured in the United
States. Of this number 116 died sub
sequently from Injuries sustained at
railroad crossings within the United
States. In the same year automobiles
'"ere involved In 76 per cent of all
crossing accidents. This frightful
number of fatal-accidents can be re
duced or entirely eliminated If the
proper precautions are taken, says. the
"The first way In which these fatali
ties may be eliminated, namely, the
elimination of crossings Is entirely out
of the question. Of course, the work
of eliminating these dangerous cross
ings will continue as part of the safe
ty first program of the railroads, but,
since there are 251,939 big highway
crossings on Class I railroads alone
in the United States and of this nun
ber only 399 were eliminated during
1919, and at the same rate of elimina
tion it will take 629 years to dispose
of these crossings If no more are add
ed, it is evident that all the men and
money available would not be suffici
ent to remove these crossings in a life
time, and that the immediate problem
must be met by some other solution.
Solution In Education

It is the duty of the railroads to keep
the crossings in good condition for
travel; give reasonable notice of the
existence of such crossings, and see to
it that the railroad employes do their
full duty in warning of the approach
"Since statistics show that' educa
tion in "and discussion of safety mat
ters are responsible for the gratifying
results obtained in the case of railway
employes, it is logical to assume that
education of the traveling public to
the exercise of a high degree of care
when approaching and passing over
railroad crossings likewise will have
a good effect in reducing crossing ac
cidents. "It is the public which, in the first
and last analysis, bears the great
burden of the distressing number of
accidents at the railway crossings- and
it is only just to expect that the pub
lic will not refuse to see its duty In
this regard in the light of its true
merit. It is expected that right-thinking
people throughout the United
States will lend their actual and moral
support to the humane and laudable
movement, the Careful Crossing. Cam

tion of the spirit of the campaign slo
gan to 'Cross Crossings Cautiously'."

Dr. Charles Steinmetz is experiment
ing with lightning arresters by the use
of a small 120,000 volt lightning ma
chine. This apparatus stores up the
electrical energy and then liberates it
suddenly with explosive force, backed
by great power, exactly as is the case
with lightning. Although as much as
a million volts have been produced
before, at Pittsfield, Mass., their dis
charge was accompanied by a current
flow of only a fraction of an ampere.

The new Australian station, which Is
to transmit to England at one-thira
the cable rates, will have feeder sta
tions In every Australian state. The
equipment for these stations will be
made in Australia but that for the big
inter-communication by wired wireless.
This will make it unnecessary for con
ductor and engineer to communicate
by the old signal system. Another
railroad in the west has proved the
! possibility of inter-train and station to
train communication by wire wire-!
less through the use of telegraph and
telephone wires parallel to the tracks.
The experiments by the Lackawanna
proved that signals were louder near
large bodies of water, still better at a
height oa- a bare plain, faded in a for
est where high trees flanked the track,
and in a tunnel beneath sea level, but
were unaffected in mountain cuts and
tunnels. A mountain between the
ending and receiving station, however,
weakened the signals.
