Body Co-ordinate With Commerce
.Commission to Look After
Public Interest.
WASHINGTON. Aug. 20. Recom
mendations of the Association of Rail
way Executive for return of railways
to private operation under conditions
that will insure adequate revenues and
maximum service to the public were
laid before the .house committee on
interstate and foreign commerce today
by Thomas Dewltt Cuyler, chairman of
the association. .
Congress under the plan would direct
the Interstate commerce commission to
"approve rates which will enable the
railroads to be self-sustaining," the
rate-regulating authority to be vested
exclusively in the central commission
and regional subcommissions. There
would be no guarantee of income or
dividends by the government.
Board to Have Broad Powers.
Broad regulatory powers would be
vested in a federal transportation
board to be created as a co-ordinate
body with the interstate commerce
commission. This board, to be composed
of three commissioners appointed by
the president, would be charged with
"general oversight of transportation
from the point of view of the public
interest." It would relieve the inter
state commerce commission of all
functions except rate regulation, valu
ation and accounting.
In regulating rates the commission
would act upon certification by the
board from time to time of the amount
of revenues needed by a railroad to pay
operating expenses and a "fair return"
on the value of its properties and main
oredit sufficient to attract new capital
necessary for the expansion of facili
ties. It was believed, Mr. Cuyler said,
the railroads should have from $700.-
000,000 to 11,000.000.000 of new capital
annually for expansion of facilities to
meet the growth of population and industry.
Power to Combine Lines.
The proposed board also would have
authority to distribute traffic when
necessary to relieve congestion on
certain lines, to require the use of
joint terminals when in the public in
terest ana in times of national emer
gency to consolidate all lines into a
unified system. It also was recom
mended that congress authorize the
consolidation of existing lines into
'strong, competitive systems" when
considered to be in the public inter

"When I began taking Tanlac I
weighedjust one hundred pounds, and,
after finishing four bottles of this
medicine, I now weigh one hundred
and thirty-three." said Sirs. Myrtle L
Gist, residing at 326 Chestnut Ave.,
South Pasadena, Los Angeles, Cal. Mrs.
Gist is the wife of a well-known mem
ber of . the Los Angeles police force,
and her Improvement since taking
Tanlac has created a good deal of
favorable comment among her neigh
bors and friends.
"But making me gain thirty-three
pounds isn't all Tanlac did for me,"
continued Mrs. Gist, as she told of the
wonderful change. "I had been in
dreadfully run-down condition for three
years and finally suffered a complete
physical breakdown. I had no appetite
and the little I ate didn't agree with
me. I was so dreadfully nervous I
could get no re-tful sleep and would
often lie awake all night long worry
ing over my condition. Practically all
my strength left me and 1 lost weight
until I was almost a shadow.
"My condition finally got so bad they
sent for my mother in Oregon to come
here and stay with me and when she
got here I was down in bed hardly able
to raise my head from the pillow.
Mother said she had several friends In
Oregon who had taken Tanlac with
wonderful results and she got me
bottle of the medicine. It seemed to
help me from the very start and In a
few days I started to get hungry. Then
I began eatln,; nourishing food and
could feel my strength rapidly return
ing. I began to r-leep soundly and
would wake up in the mornings feeling
rested and refreshed and I soon was
able to walk about the house. I im
proved every day and now I feel sim
ply fine, have a splendid appetite and
can eat anything I want and enjoy it
without any bad after effects. As I'
said before, I have actually gained
thirty-three pounds and for the first
time in many months I am able to do
my ovii housework without any trou
ble. I now feel so happy over my won
derful Improvement that I just get out
in the yard with my two children and
romp and play with them and enjoy it
thoroughly. I will never cease prais
ing Tanlac for the wonderful change it
has brought in my life."

of the World War
It Is Not a Defense or Justification
of Germany's Crimes
It Is a Frank Confession of the Most Colossal Failure of Might
Against Right in the World's History. His
Revelations Will Startle the World
Ludendorff, arch-Teuton militarist, admits that f rom 1916 on the German cause was hopeless.
He lays bare the impotence and weakness of both the German armies and the imperial statesmen.
The Teuton side of the war has been shrouded in mystery and up to the present time, no one who
knows has spoken. We know so much of our own side of the great struggle. Germany was so
silent about her internal troubles and defeats, always emphasizing her temporary successes that
it seemed at times as if the balance of victory was all on her side. But Ludendorff discloses the
real condition of Germany just before and during the war. His story will be complete the his
tory of every battle and campaign. .
