Union 'mud-slinging' rapped p 9
AAR President Loomis says the operating brotherhoods, by refusing to come to grips with the featherbedding problem, are acting with "deplorable disregard" for their own members' best interests. He fears that labor's intransigent position could lead to crippling strikes.
Cover Story-Do rail salesmen help shippers? p.13
The salesmen are better than they used to be, say respondents to this month's Traffic Poll. Their inability to get quick action on special problems, though, is considered a big weakness.
Cover Story-Will the 'contract rate' idea work here? p.14
U.S. railroads, in growing numbers, are eager to apply some form of the Canadian "agreed charge" method of rate-making. Here-in a Railway Age roundtable discussion which included shippers and railroaders-is a roundup of current thinking on the subject.
Alaska's microwave cuts costs p.42
The communications system, which cost $350,000, will be less expensive to maintain than the storm-damaged pole line it replaced.
New Haven reorganizes traffic p.45
The road's new approach to the problem of selling is designed "to establish a pattern of service based on the needs and objectives of shippers."
Symes blasts 'rigid thinking' p.56
PRR president calls on railroads to discard some of their "hallowed traditions," and present a united front on problems affecting the health of the industry as a whole.
The Action Page-Contract for 'relationships'? p.76
Many railroad-shipper relationships provide an ideal opportunity for establishing rate contracts. Such contracts-enabling railroads to meet their competition where it exists-would not alter the relative position of producers to their markets. If it's important to producers that railroads maintain long-standing market relationships, then the producers should reciprocate by contracting to ship by rail the bulk of the traffic involved.
