THE TIMES : 'FEBRUARY i, 1918
what it iirnuo
TO HAVE ONLY
ONE JBEL1VERY
Vast Saving Can Be Effected
In Delivery of
Goods
' Hartford, Feb. L What one deliv
ery a day means and does mean is
told in a statement given out today
for the Commercial Economy division
of the committee on industrial survey,
Connecticut State Council of Defense.
This division was named by the coun
'cil on nomination of the Connecticut
."Chamber of Commerce and is headed
y Alton T. Miner of New London.
lUndor its direction, a conference to
devise a commercial economy pro
iBram for Connecticut lias been called
to meet at the old Senate Chamber,
State Capitol, Hartford, on Wednes
day, February 6, at 31 a. m. All cham
jfoera of commerce and similar organ
jtoation in the etate and others have
en. nrged to too represented.
I The statement, "What 'ono delivery
m day means and does not mean,"
Ussoed today, eays:
One delivery a day does not .mean
the following;
That all delivery vehicles -will leave
'the store at one time.
! That each wagron or track: will make
wmly one trip each, day and toe idle af-
tter that trip until the next day.
; That delivery men will have to work
(longer hours than when there are sev
eral deliveries a day. The hours of
labor- xnaiy be regulated) -quite as easily
1-omlnr the new system as under the
jold. The one-delivery-a-day plan may
"cut out late deliveries, thus in some
jcases shortening the delivery men's
May.
That delivery work la the store-win
be more complicated. Bather the re
verse will be true. j"
One delivery a day docs mean the
following: ;
That no wagon or truck will go to
the same house nof ever the same
route more than once a day.
That each vehicle may leave the
store as many times a day as need
be, tout each trip will Ibe over a differ
ent route.
That there will be shorter average
distance between stops, because all
the goods that were delivered to a
route on two or more trips will now
be delivered at one.
That the territory may there flora
be re-divided into shorter routes.
That even if the number of routes is
increased and even if the vehicles
make more trips, fewer vehicles and
men will generally ibe required to
handle the same volume of deliveries,
because all duplication of work win
toe eliminated and density of stops will
be greater.
That the total mileage will be less.
That gasoline, now in such great
demand for war use, will thus be con-.
served.
That total depreciation on equip
ment will ibe less than with more de
liveries a day. . -
That, for example, where Wagon A
went three times a day over . Route
A, Wagon B three times a day over
Route R, and Wagon C three times a
day over Route C, making nine trips
in all, each route may be shortened,
say a third, so that one of the wagons
can make all the deliveries On, it in
one trip a day, the trip taking up
only half a day. Route A, B and C
may thus toe re-divided into approxi
mately four' new routes. Wagon A
may make one trip over Route A and
another trip over Route B. Wagon B
may make one trip over Koute C and
one trip over Route D. Wagon C
would be displaced entirely and its
driver not needed.

For Elderly People
Excellent Laxative
As tve pass the prime of life the
various organs of the body have
a tendency to weaken, especially
the bowels. Regularity in this
important function is so essential
to gpod health that old fo'ks
shonld be very careful to avoid
constipation. A congestion of
stomach waste in the bajceis occa
sions dizziness, headache, drowsi
ness after eating, biliousness,
belching, b!oat piles, etc., and
should be corrected immediately;
it is the direct cause of much se
rious disease.
The most effective remedy v for
constipation is a combination of
simple laxative herbs with pepsin
sold in drug stores under the name
of Dr. Caldwell's Syrup Pepsin.
It costs only fifty cents a bottle,
is mild in its action, does not gripe
I or strain, and brings relief quickly
in an easy natural manner. Get
a bottle of it from your druggist
and keep it in the house; it is the
ideal family rcjcdy. A trial bot
tle can be obtained free of
charge by writing to Dr. W. B.
