I Young Harriman Will Follow Father Footsteps Walter, Averill Harriman, the eldest son or the dead railway kinj, today, at seventeen years of age, finds him- seli confronted with the absolute ne- cessity of preparing to master -the intricacies of 'railroading in order that a few. years hence he may stop, in and the reigns- of manage-' ment that death took, from the well trained hands of his father. -i Although the young man to whom will eventually fall the management of billion dollar interests of his father is well educated and knows something of railroading', he readily admits that he is at present incap-: able, of the management of the sys- tem of roads his father built up needs and that he must first learn the rail-1 road business thoroughly before he attempts to 'direct them. Realizing with characteristic keen- ness of perception, that his of i activity were drawing to a speedy close, and that, it would be necessarv talka-tive and a good listener. He is remarkably decisive, much as his father was. He makes up his mind quickly ami' acts accordingly. He does not revel m the luxury that some might think his fortune would lead him into. He thinks uo more of rid- ing in tliO ordinary passenger coach, or smoker, of a railroad than the hardened commuter dees. Had No Cash He is" never obtrusive. His cjuick- ness and reserve are illustrated in the fact LJiui, few of the conductors iji the trains that ho frequently used from Jersey City to Ardon were aware of his identity. One day, in his hurry to got a train, ho to secure a ticket. IIu explained to the conduct- or that he did not any cash handy therefore could not pay his fare.

Ho had hoped that his ocean to ocean railroad route would te car- ried through and improved by Walter and his plans 'for a crre-at system circl ing ths put in real- isation.
