Big locomotives are built to do a big job in the big country which is America a big job in peacetime as in wartime. They are built to pull long trains. Long freight trains can handle more goods at less cost to you than short trains. Long trains mean fewer trains fewer chances for accidents fewer interrup tions to traffic. But a few railroad union leaders op pose long trains among their current 44 demands for changes in rules is one limit ing the length of freight trains to 57 aver age cars. Why do they demand this? I .xvw& wi few-a rzzzz For "safety," they say. But is it? Government figures show definitely that long trains mean greater safety t railroad employes and public alike. Then, if safety is not the reai reason what is the reason behind this demand? It is to make more jobs which are not needed to get more pay! This "mad work" would be sheer waste. Think of big, modern locomotives using only half their power. For this waste, you the public would have to pay. Higher costs mean a lower standard of living for everybody. No body u-ants that!
