WIIIUV In iyzi 'lillliu ' One Dollar Moved , 72 TRArriC UNITS RAILROAD RATES and "TRAFFIC UNITS" Present freight and passenger rates are necessary because of present railroad expenses, not because of large railroad profits. In 1921, the N., C. & St. L. Ry., with the second largest receipts in its history, ' lost money. In 1917, the average amount received by the Rail way for hauling one ton of freight one mile was 1.01 cents. In 1921 it was 1,47 cents, an increase of 45.5. Transportation costs per unit of service rendered in the same period increased about 61.6. Hauling a ton one milevis a "traffic unit." Carrying three passengers a mile is counted as an equivalent unit. For each dollar" paid out the N., C. & St. L. in 1917 moved 132 of these units; in 1921, only 72 units. Most railroad expenses are fixed by factors beyond J the control of the railroad: wages by the United States Railroad Labor Board, the price of materials and sup- v plies by market conditions. Every economy is being practiced to reduce expenses, and all railroads have applications before the Labor Board for a reduction in wages. . Until railroad operating expenses are reduced so . that more units of traffic can be moved for each dollar that the public pays as rates, railroad rates cannot be ' reduced without peril to the public interest in an efficient transportation system.
