Omaha, Neb.. Feb. 1. "Tho most
difllult problem that confronts railway
managements todny is tho education
and training of the staff to fill posi

Kruttschnitt, director of maintenance
and operation, of all the Harriman
lines, In explanation, in part, of a new
plan of railway organization which is
being tried out on the Nebraska divis
ion of tho union Pacific road. Under
tho new schemo of organization, if it
proves successful, all of the 100,000
employes will bo transformed into an
army, each member of which can
aspire with hope to tho highest position
in tho gift of tho railroad for which
he works. In fact, it is tho purposo
of tho Harriman management so to
train this vast army that each private
will become fitted to fill tho position
next above him.
To accomplish these purposes Mr.
Harriman has given his heads of de
partments carte blanche in tho way of

In destructive energy at many points,
swept over parts of Texas, OIkahoma,
Tennessee, Alabama and other South
