Director General MrAdoo some time
beck ordered a big quantity of both
oara and engines But C. R. Gray, hi*
director of transportation, in a report
to Chairman E. D. Smith, of the Senate
committee on interstate commerce,
doee not hold out any brilliant hopes.
He says the fundamental need is for
motive power, and the intention is
therefore to employ the maximum capaclty
of the locomotive plants of the
cdtntry, at present hampered by lack
of steel. The railroads are probably
abort about 4,000 locomotives and 200,000
to 260,000 freight cars.
On January 1 the locomotive plants
had on order 2.448 engine*. In three
months they delivered only 321. This
was dne to shortage of materials, also
because the nation's needs for engine*
In France received first call.
This left the plants with 2.127 engines
till on order, and the railroad
adminietratlon has ordered 1,025 more,
nuking n total of 3,152 for which no
trery epeeay delivery can ne rorecasr.

Judging by production in past years,
the government will be lucky It It gets i

from Gray a figures, that any large

The war has placed new burdens
on the railroads. For Instance, oil
I from Mexico and phosphate rock from
Florida and South Carolina used to go
by ocean ateamera. Because of the
great demand (or reseda to carry
troops and supplies to Europe, these
things now travel by rail.

of coal is moved into New England;1

The shipping board la building 260
wooden and concrete barges of 2,500
tons capacity to carry coal by sea to

hoped for by August and all are to be
