CONTENTS
Answer to growing traffic congestion . . . . . . in large metropolitan areas is a publicly financed, privately managed electrified suburban system using present railroad rights-of-way, Professor Stanley Berge told last week's meeting of the Chicago Regional Planning Association. Railroad commuters, he said, cannot bear the high property and franchise taxes paid by these carriers but not by their competitors. . . . . . p. 7
Nothing but slow death . . . . . . is foreseen for common carriers by Interstate Commerce Commissioner Arpaia "as long as a large segment of for-hire transportation is left outside regulation" and as long as that segment is permitted to make additional inroads upon the job of public transportation without any real advantage to the economy. . .  p. 8
Coach-sleeper service . . . . . . a new concept in accommodations for overnight railroad passengers, is scheduled to begin this month between Chicago and Colorado on the Burlington's newly equipped "Denver Zephyr" and the Union Pacific-Milwaukee "City of Denver." . . . p.12
FORUM: Why take a transportation census? . . . . . . And when? Nobody knows now the total transportation service produced by each kind of carrier-especially by the private carriers-nor the part played by each in the movement of different commodities. How can plans be made, or rates scaled, intelligently without such data? . . . p.21
... and how's the RPI doing? . . . . . . Not all it could do with wider industry support. Of course its activities are expensive, but what worthwhile promotional effort isn't? . . . . . p. 21
No spoilage in 32,500 carloads . . . . . . that's the record for the FGE mechanical reefer fleet. It didn't just happen-those cars are kept running by careful attention to inspection and servicing, which depend on trained personnel and appropriate facilities. . . .  p. 22
Slow order for unemployment pay . . . . . . is more important than ever as the take for the unemployment tax keeps mounting. By cooperation between the railroads and the Retirement Board, and by cooperation between departments and territories on the railroads, the claims rolls can be held down. . . . p.32
Some "how to's" for supervisors . . . . . . were expounded by three railroad vice-presidents at the recent Roadmasters and Bridge & Building conventions. We report their remarks on: How to get men to do their best; how to get more for the same money; and how to get more work done on the track. . . . p.25
