I2j5 fim 5 WO a Tui 930 p m Tkur Clly 910 What lies ahead for railroads BE SOME Changes Made is a tune which seems to have been spe cially designed for our railroads Americans 20 years from now may look at presentday railroad maps and wonder how efficien transportation could have been possible under such a hodge podge setup If our railroad map of the future will show a few large systems in stead of the many we have to day That means a wave o mergers Some have already taken place Others are consid ered Still others are planned Some transportation experts say the biggest reshuffle since the 80s and 90s is m prospect The reason for these proposed mergers is the present financia plight of the roads It should be explained however that such mergers are only one of a num ber of proposals advanced to put railroads back on their feet The fact is that railroad earn Ings have been sliding for many years Right now many of them are reported in bad trouble un less something is done For ex ample in 1957 the combined nei income of the nations rail car riers was million For the firsfnine months of 1961 thai net income was only mil lion about a profit able The industry is caughtin its severest squeeze since the depression days of the 30s Many factors of course arc responsible for this deteriora tion High labor costs expensive modernization increased com petition from other forms of transportation and heavy taxa tion have all figured in it Some students of the situation contend the railroads bear much of the blame for their troubles for having failed toadjusrthem selves soon enough to modern conditions and interna jealousy have been present One of the common complaints of their executives is that rail roads suffer from overregula tion and from what they refer to as a preferential position giv en truckers and airlines If truckers were forced to pay their fair share of the cost of interstate construction rail road spokesmen charge and if airlines were charged for use of federally aided airports and air ways the railroads would be able to compete for both freight and passenger service The plight of the railroads is serious thing one that we cant ignore No matter how good our highway system or how large our trucks this form of transportation can never take the place of railroads In the event of national emer gency requiring quick transport ofheavy goods there could be no substitute for railroads Not to be forgotten is the fact that during World War II the rail road carried 90 per cent of the military traffic and were respon sible for 97 per cent of the or ganized movement of troops Its been apparent for some time that high government of ficials are concerned with the rail problem Just what the remedy should be hasnt crystal lized Several broad suggestions have been advanced One of these as if it compulsory is outright subsidies for the rail roads President Kennedy is expected to send a transportation mes sage to Congress calling for federal aid A commerce depart ment report on national trans portation policy was forwarded to the White House early in November Though not made public it is said to touch on direct subsidies particularly to railroads with heavy commuter traffic Some railroad men are recep tive to subsidies others are not Executives of the eastern roads under greatest financial strain look with favor on the idea Al len J

his warm endearing personality as for his mastery of the instrument He was the omposer of such melodius vio in numbers as Caprice Vien noise and Liebesfreud and several light operas of which the most notably successful was Apple Blossoms mf l The violinist is survived by us widow the former Harriet Lies whom he married in 1902 and a nephew Kurt Kreisler Urs Kreisler is seriously ill friends said

miles is doomed to spend the rest o eternity in futile acci dental satellite of the sun Of its four objectives million space craft apparently ac complished only one The biggest disappointment was that it missed the moon by 2286 milesThis happened because i was hurled into its trajectory a excessive speed after it was launched Friday from Cape Ca naveral Fla That failure brought on others For one thing the 727pound spao craft was unable to bounce rada signals off the moon And since it did not land its capsule on the moon it was unable to bring it seismometer into play and meas ure moonquakes It also failed to get closeup pic hires of the moon The long range shots it got as it sped past ap parently will be of little value any The one thing Ranger 3 did was collect gamma radiation data These data already are beini analyzed Ranger 3 raced by the moon and into oblivion Sunday after noon beginning to tumble as i went into solar orbit 0nly one o its transmitters was working During periods when that trans mitters antenna was pointed to ward earth scientists were able o pick up the signal and chart Rangers progress An official of Jet Propulsion operated here for the National

space craft descended slowly toward the moon m its final maneuver Hac the operation gone smoothly the pictures would have shown the moon in detail never before achieved When the camera was turned on Sunday as Ranger 3 sped by he moon the space craft failed o keep its antenna pointed toward earth The signal received at Soldstoue tracking station m the California desert was weaker than t should

ministers of the American states agreed in principle Monday to suspend Fidel Castros Cuban regime from hemisphere family coun cils A U S delegation source dis closed the breakthrough on this toughest issue of the conference syhich has prolonged its deliber ations here beyond the sched uled closing Monday It came when Argentina and Chile members of the so called soft seven bloc led by Brazil and the majority view on the suspension pro cedure The U S informant speculated that the United States would get 17 to 18 of the 20 available votes for a statement that the Castro regime is unfit to sit in hemisphere councils so long as it embraces the Communist philosophy The Council of the Organization of American States will be instructed by this con ference to decide without de lay just how Cuba can be sus pended Agreeing not to disagree Western Hemisphete foreign min isters reached a general accord that there should be a series of at least six resolutions embodied in a final declaration so that those who wanted to vote against certain aspects could do so Secretary of State Dean Rusk appeared to have achieved limit ed success to this extent Most if not all ofthe 19 Latin American republics judging Cuba agree the Havana regime should be declared incompatible with the American system Most are agreed the government of Prime Minister Fidel Castro should be suspended or expelled from OAS agencies Most are agreed there should be no arms trade between their countries and Cuba They hold Castros representatives should not sit on the InterAmer ican Defense Board and they feel a vigilance committee should be created to keep watch against subversion There were great differences of opinion here on just what all this added up to The United States managed to jet all Mexico vhich voted with Cuba against holding this pro claim collectively that commu nism is had for the hemisphere and that Castroism is incompati le with the InterAmerican sys em if it remains in the embrace if the Soviet bloc Most agree in principle that the astro regime does not belong in OAS agencies The big stumbling lock is how to get Cuba out The bloc of seven goslow na ions led by Brazil and Mexico
