Washington—The dinky little freight
cars to be seen on old world railroads
have given American tourists in Europe
many a hearty laugh, in the past.
Ib it possible that these laughs were
premature?—that just such care arc
what We need on our railroads ’owe. for
short-haul economy? Secretary Charles
W. Holland, of the American Institute
of Co-operation, thinks maybe so.
* * *
The institute includes 37 organizations
of farmers, dairymen, fruit growers and
others in allied industries. Its purpose
is to get higher prices for these producers
.for the commodities they have' to sell
and at the same tiipe to develop their j
markets by reducing the prices whicli
“ultimate consumers” have to pay — in
short, to reduce the producer-consumer
Also its aim is to cut down tbe prices
which its members have to pay for what
they themselves need—as; (consumers, for
of course, part of tbe tiriie, they're that,
* • *. ,| S
Hardly necessary to say. the cost of
transportation is an important item in
creating the producer-consumer price
spread, whether from farm producer to
urban consumer or from industrial pro
ducer to rural consutaer.
Now the producer complains that this
cost is so high as to wipe his profit
out. At the same time the consumer
declares it so hi#h as tos-inake his living
Simultaneously the railroads wail that
It’s so low they’re nearly bankrupt—and
one great system, the Chicago, Milwau
kee and St. Paul, actually is. so thntjthey
make out a pretty good rase.
* • •
Weil, perhaps not ail but many rail
road men agree that the short haul is
their great difficulty.
The law doesn't permit them to charge
as much fer short as for long hauls.
Yet it isn’t hard to prove that a short
haul may cost them nearly as much,, ful
ly as much or even more than a long
one. , 1 •,4

venient route, unloaded, and that ends
A similar huge car is kept waiting in
definitely in a congested yard in Chicago
while a lot of little shipments are being
accumulated, to fill it, f6r a dozen points
nearby in Illinois.
Then it's hauled about, hither and
yon, from town to town, it* contents
pawed over, handled, and rehandled, un
til at last it's empty, after endless book
keeping and nobody knows bow much
botuer and delay.
For long hauls the Big car's all right.
But for short ones, asks Hohnan. why
not use the little affairs, like Europe's?
A car of a third or a fourth the ca
pacity of the great mammoth’s could be
loaded in jig time, a light train of them
could be strung tpgether and then a small
locomotive, economical of fuel and easy
on the rails, could (snake them along
the line, dropping t'.iem off here and there
and going on its way.

Another thing—up-to-date Europeaii
freight ears are bnilt in sections, and
there's a good reason why.
Basically they're flat cars. Each,
however, has a super-structure consist
ing usually of three segments, separable
but fitting together, so as to give the ef
fect of an ordinary box car.
Say you’re moving from Kansas City
to St. Louis. You have about enough
household good* to fill a third of a car.
A motor truck backs up alongside onC
of t’jese divisible cars.
A segment is slid oil onto the truck
and carried to your house. You load it
up, back goes the segment to tbe "flat”
and is slid back on board.
In St. Louis it’s slid off once more,
delivered at your door, unloaded an#
there you are. Say what you please
about American efficiency, we can't tie
that, not even with the motor truck.

What we need is the openness of mini
to adopt a few of these modern Eutm
pean conveniences that look so funny to
Us when we visit "the other side,” but
might, end a lot of our troubles if we'i
fit them to suit our own needs, Holman
to have tires to measure up to the serv
ice and tire merchants to sell them.
And it saw that in the "home town'’
newspaper it had, ready to hand,

Excerpts tip® the reports of a North
Carolina grand jury on the subject of
corporal punishment for prisoners:
“It is our unanimous opinion that a
deplorable condition existed In the Rocky
Mount camp, with no extenuating cir
cumstances, no redeeming features, no
justification, right or reason for such
brutal, inhumane physical treatment as
had been accorded prisoners in this camp
“We recommend the total abolishment
of any form of corporal punishment in
the camps of Nash county, or to such
C oners as are in the jurisdiction of the
ky Mount road commission, or used
for any purpose whatsovere.”
