; a - !!(-s that may have proved efficient m the public service during the govern
( i.'.iis. . be retained.
We cru'.d not purchase eiuipin.i,i alter we entered the war because the government took control
and war financing Ovi upii i the field, while during the rest of the time the question of adequate credit
had to wait for answer in congressional action. On the other hand, the locomotives and cars in service
have In en subjected 10 the most ac tive use and ne.v rolling stock has not been renewed throughout the
country in normal numbers for the increase of normal traffic. The burden of extradordinary war move
ments fell heavily upon till Kinds of rolling stock, making it impossible to shop the equipment at the proper
time, and repair work was further delayed by shortage during the larger part of the war period in both
men and material.
The problem before us at once, therefore, is how to put to the best use the passenger train cars
and the freight cars that are in service, and how to put into good condition for service every piece of equip
ment to be had. This problem is before every railro:id. Abreast of this is the larger question whether
the earniims under the new law, the "Transportation Act of lln'O." will be enough to establish the credit
of the railroads at a point where they can provide themselves with the facilities of all kinds that they need
to give th: public proper service. We have the will if only we can find the ways and means These are
not ea.-y lo find, for an assumed earning of even ii per cent, and no assurance of that, is not attractive
to anyone having money to invest when money is worth 7 or S per cent in the open market.
Hence, the effect of the new act of congress un u earnings and upon the credit of the railroads can
not be immediately determined. This act provides for a rate-making structure, under which, during the
ma! iwo vears (he railroads will he permitted lo earn up 10 .'.. per cent annually on the value of th-?
railroads as may be determined by the Interstate (Vn uierce Commission.. The Commission has power
at iis discretion to increase these puss-ildo earnings to u per cent, the added one-half of 1 per cent to be
used only for improvements lo the property.
No guarantee of any kind is given lo any railroad. !h'( hall of any earnings over d per cent are to be
taken hv ih" government to make loans to railroads that may m-ed them for improvements or to care for
)hligations falling due. or to obtain and lease equip aeut to the larri-'is that cannot afford to buy it.
Obviously these elements in Ihe situation will have to he considered in making our plans. The Inter
slate Commerce Commission is the deciding body with respect to value of the properties, as well as the
rates which are to yield the Ti'.j per cent return thereon, and much will depend upon the vision and
promptness of action with which that body accepts its great responsibilities.
In the meantime, it is particularly desirable, in view of the shortage of equipment, that every effort
be made by shippers and the railway forces to continue heavy car loading and train loading;, and to lose
no time in loading and unloading cars.
llelieviug that we will have the full co-operation of the people served by our lines in dealing with the
problems presented, it is due them that in thus aiding us they should know what problems we have to
meet. You can rest assured we are not idle with respect to them.
