Most of the labor and time usmally

an elevating mechanism that Is now
being adopted. A steel framework,
carrying a motor and hoisting outfit,
is attached at the feeding end of a

on a small truck. Cables are then at

When the !.p of the stack reaches
the desired height, the hoist stops. As
the feeder removes the paper the re

EMPLOYMENT AND TRAINING OF WOMEN
FOR VARIOUS BRANCHES OF RAILWAYS
Women have made a splendid start
in various branches of railroad work to
make up war-time deficiencies of men.

every piece of scrap; they do the work
as well as men and appear to like it.

in charge of operation of the New

'The first rule we laid down about

LOCOMOTIVE BUILT ON COAST
Liberty Engine of Pacific Type, Just
Completed, is First in Twenty.
The first locomotive constructed on
the Pacific coast in a quarter of a cen
tury has just bad its maiden trip over
the Southern Pacific lines, having
hauled part of the draft contingent
from Sacramento to Oakland and
thence to Roseburg, Ore. In its first 72
hours' services the new engine covered
1,040 passenger miles, which is consid
ered an exceptionally fine showing.
The locomotive was constructed in the
Soathern Pacific shop In Sacramento
and is of the Pacific type. 81x consoll
dation engines for freight service and
three ten-wheelers are also being built
in Sacramento, the ten costing $300,

The "Liberty engine," as it has been

"There is no work (lone on railroads

heaviest manual labor requiring phys

their strength. We are not used to

labor by women in this country. We
don't like to see women do hard work.
But there Is nothing about railroad

wnmen cannot do. We have had one
woman watcher at a railroad crossing

War Gives Opportunity.
"Our present work is centered large

women for employment by the rail
roads. We cannot tell how long the
war will last or how many men *we
may lose by the draft. We want to be
ready. The women we are training are
in many instances relatives of our em
ployees. They have taken up railroad
work eagerly and energetically. Their
contribution to the Industrial welfare
of the country will be of tremendous
benefit to women. Many women have
extraordinary energy and power for
constructive work which has never
been put to practical use. The war
gives them an opportunity to serve
their country and themselves.
"In Europe women have proved their
capacity to do the work of men and
American women are demonstrating
equal efficiency In every field they have
