ABERDEEN, MISSm FRIDAY, JANUARY 1 1, 1918 NO. :$2 - - s f v. ( , I r Boss McAdoo. Already Railroad Director Mc Adoo's action lias resulted in end ing fraight congestion at several im portant points, notably in respect of railroads entering Chicago, which, it is reported, are now able to han dle more traffic then i3 moving. It is too early to decide how suc cessful Mr. AcAdoo is going to be as the greatest railroader on earth but, alread3' there are the strongest in- dications that the cure for conges tion is autocracy. Give the right boss, the right plan and the complete authority, and things will move. Congestion aryl confusion go down before such a combination. In em ergency, such a combinaion is the salvation of democracy, or we are all wrong in this war. It is of the very highest import ance to observe and record the re sults of Mr. McAdoo's autocratic ac tion. If the policy solves the vital problems of our greatest industry, it should be promptly applied to other enterprises than railroading. There is sufficient evidence showing that the mnking of ships is not proceed ing with satisfactory speed. There are boards and corporations and there are heads of departments stuck on their own individual opinions, and the natural result is congestion and lack of one clear-out plan at wnicn an concerned could be aim ing. There is a somewhat similar condition in the fuel and food ad ministration. A fully empowered boss and team work are needed in pretty much every department of the nation's war business. In the mat ter of ship building why not put in an experienced, practical manufac turer like IIenr3' Ford, for instance, " as the absolute boss and back him with all the legislation he requires to boss shipbuilding, from thf tim- - ber standing in the forest to the completed vessel sailing forth on rjfirst voyage? There will be con , ion, confusion, decided weak 13 in the food and the fuel admin- TntitIoiiH, .t-gnrifs-s l lisa abilities of Hoover and (.lartield, unless the bosses on these jobs are given full authority fo boss, and when the president comes forward to ask for additional legislation bearing on such bossism, congress should nut hesitate to grant it. We shriek a good deal agaist bossism. We engage in war to ex terminate autocracy. Rut, is it not a fact that, in emergency, there is no business, no enterprise, no fam ily, forsooth, but niu.H resort to a boss to pull it out of a hole? It should be a good boss, with place and power dependent upon consent of the bossed, but fully and defi nitely the boss. Vicksburg Post. 4 Horse Work 1 Horse Cost.

Even the blind Boleheviki who once trusted the Teutons are begin ning to know a fact when they see it, and it seems altogether possible that Russia may, within the next few weeks, resume her former status as a belligerent. The foremost military effect this could have would be to force Ger many to rush several hundred thou sand men back to the Russian front from Fsance and Belgium, where they have been gathering for a sup posed master offensive against the allies. Even if it be true that Russia has only three million men to put into the field, Germany and Austria can not afford to allow their lines in the east to be shattered. Their hold on Russian territory is one of the best things they have to bargain with when the peace parleys begin, and they may be depended upon not to give up any of it unnecessarily. A postponement of the reputed German attack in the west would mean that the United States would be able to mass its forces at the side of France and England, and Ger many's coup would never take place. The German strategists are far too wise to risk failure in such a drive, which would tax to the utmost their military strength, and which, if stayed, would mean the end of of fensive lighting in the west for the Huns, It ia this fact that gives so- much interest to the Russian situation at present. Na.urally, we may expect further concessions from the Central Powers, who are desperately anxious to get Russia out of the war,-if they can only be allowed at the same time to grab a lot of territory, lay hold of invaluable economic and treaty concessions and continue their enslavement of populations within Jie .conquered territories of the Da Jie. Just 'Aow anxious the Teutons are to getyJusssa out will be shown in 1 be nei. i Yew uav4'ty Yhep aceTolfere that are made to the Rolsheviki. Whatever happens, the situation in Russia today is brighter for the allies th in it has been since the de bacle that marked the end of the final effort made by the Russian ar mies after the overthrow of the Czar. Certainly there is sound sense in be ing optimistic over the Russian situ- A" ation at present. Jackson Daily N ews. When h:tl3' suffers with croup, ap ply give Dr Thoniat Electric Oil at once.

The degree of organization of the American Red Crops abroad and the speed with which it can" formulate and execute plans, is shown in it recent achievement of equipping a hospital and organizing its staff within two weeks after the hospital property was placed at its disposal. The new link in the chain of insti tutions which the American Red Cross is forging to regain for France the health of her citizens is the Sainte Eugenie Hospital at Lyons, for tu berculosis repariates. A cable dispatch from Paris head quarters of the American Red Cross announcing the opening of the hos pital, said in part: "Sainte Eugenie is lent to the American Red Cross by the Hospital Board of Lyons, which supplies the building with heat, light, water and sanitation without cost to the Red Cross, and with food, linen and dis infection at cost. The American Red Cross provides the nurses and doctors and hospital supplies. ''Often as many as 65 tuberculo sis repatriates arrive at Evian in one week, coming from occupied Fro nee and Belgium. Returning to their homes they have spread infection. The new hospital cares immediately for 200 patients in five new hospital barracks and in the main building." RED CROSS NOTES FROM PARIS. The American Red Cross is now operating forty dispensaries in the war zone. A rest station is being operated by the American Red Cross at the new American aviation field. American nurses and other Red Cross women workers in France are to have a club with rooms in Paris, to include a library, reading rooms and a meeting hall. Old phonograph records are being collected among friends of the Amer ican Red Cross in Paris to entertain soldiers at rest stations. Her Throat is Gone. 1. Mrti. Thomas IT, PAltJMpBtgotprY.

The King's business" is a phrase that tins given couriers in the old world the right-of-way for many cen turies. An equally terse statement may be offered by American rail roads for the delays of passenger and freight trains in the last few months. During the first period of the war. up to and including Oct. 30. a total of 112,469 cars containing govern ment supplies had been hauled from every section of the United States to various designated points. The sixteen national army contonments required 74,277; the sixteen national guard camps, 23,335; the thirteen aviation training camps, 6,818; all other camps. 1,984; the quarter masters' training camp, 577 and the various ordinance, food, council na tional defense and army annex build ings demanded and received 478 railway cars of every character. Some idea of what such a drain on ' the available car supply means may be obtained by an analysis of. the fig ures. Thirty cars are supposed to make up one train. Therefore 3,748 trains are represented in the total number of cars utilized for govern roent work up to the present month. The average length of the cars was approximately 40 feet. This means that the shipments, if sent at one time, would have required a train long enough to reach from New York to Chicago. The engine cl each a train, cent from New Yort to the South, would arrive in Jackson ville. Fla., a few minutes ; after the caboose pssd through Philadel phia.
