The Ontario-born, Manitoba-raised lawyer- railwayman retires at age 65 at the end pi this month from the top job in Canada's biggest industrial enterprise, of which he was operations chief long before becoming chairman and president Jan. 1, 1967.

Both now are executive vice- presidents. Mr. MacMillan said his pri- mary reason for recommending a division of responsibilities in the publicly-owned enterprise was the increasing burden of running a railroad "against the clock" in a country of vast size, While moving out of the "executive Mr. joined CN as a lawyer in Winnipeg 37 years continue to work part-time at CN's 17- storey headquarters here on specific projects in which he has a particular interest.

Traditionally, the railway aimed at providing sufficient power and rolling stock to cope with "maximum average flow" rather than peak flow because that would mean prohibitive expenditure on equipment which would stand idle during off periods. "We have in this last year in Canada peaks which have never been experienced before and they haven't been cyclical peaks. "This is one of the reasons why both government and in- dustry now are wondering whether or not there should be a change in the fundamental philosophy because it is vitally important that Canada be able to export its produce and manufactured goods when the right time to do so is at hand." Mr. MacMillan said. Does this mean a new Cana- dian transportation policy is required? "I don't think it is as broad- gauged as he said. It can be achieved pretty well in the policy environment which we now have. But it certainly does mean a new direction. And we may have reached the point at which this is desirable."
