Walker D. Hines, Director Gen
eral of Railroads, to-day authorized
the following statement relative to
the freight car situation:
Current discussion or car shor
tages and related questions makes
it important to bring to the atten
tion of the public the fact that, con
trary to what seems to be the pub
lic assumption, conditions in this
respect are substantially more fa
vorable than hey were in recent
years prior to the war.
On August 1, 1917, the total car
surpluses reported throughout the
country were 43,481 cars, whereas
on August 1, 1919, the total car sur
pluses were 107,900. The total num
ber of unfilled car requisitions on
August 1, 1917, was 77,257, whereas
the total number of unfilled car re
quisitions on August 1, 1919, was
only 19,271.
The number of freight cars in
service and not withdrawn for re
pairs on July 1, 1917, was 1,983,000.
The number of freight cars in ser
vice and not withdrawn for repairs
on J\ily 1. 1919, was 2,063,000.
July Was Good Month.
The very fact of unified control
of all the railroads has tended to
concentrate the comments upon any
inability to perform one hundred
per cent of the transportation re
quired, but the foregoing figures
show that the situation during and
If you have roaring, buzxing ~
noise's in your ears, are getting

tarrhal Deafness, go to your
■ druggist and get 1 ounce of
Parmint (double strength),
and add to it a Vi-pint of hot
" water and a little granulated '
sugar. Take 1 tablespoonful
four times a day.
This will often bring quick
relief from the distressing
head noises. Clogged nostrils
should open, breathing become
easy and the mucus stop drop- ,
ping into the throat. It is easy
to prepare, costs little and is
pleasant to take. Anyone who
has Catarrhal trouble of the
ears, is hard of hearing or has
head noises should give this
11 prescription a trial. _ 1
at the end of July, 1919, was very
much -better than in the corres
ponding period in 1917. It is be
lieved this fact ought to be borne
in mind by the public in appraising
the existing car rervice conditions.
The extent to which freight cars
have been repaired in recent
months has been the subject of
some comment. The number of
freight cars repaired and returned
to service by months during the
present calendar year has been as
January 2,027,992
February 1,747,146
March 1,955,225
April 1,897,698
May 2,039,887
June 2,013,897
July 1,790,097
On account of the fact that the
Fourth of July came on Friday this
year and 6f the proportionately
small amount of work done on the
following day. the falling off in the
number of cars repaired in July as
compared with June is clearly ex
plainable. The number of cars re
paired per month in May and June
kept fully up to the number repair
ed in January, although in May
and June many shops were still
working on shorter hours than in
Much stress has been laid on the
increase in the percentage of cars
withdrawn for repairs in the recent
I months up to and including July.
! The fact is that this increase in the
j number of cars withdrawn for re
< pairs has not been due to a falling
! off in the number*of cars repaired
but has been due to a number of
j com pie* factors which have arisen
from the conditions resulting from
the war. The number of cars ac
tually in service, not Including had
order cars, increased from 1,983,600
on July 1, 1917, to 2,065.000 on
July 1, 1919.
Explains Conditions.
The Railroad Administration,
„KiT. Ver : is not con tent with its
ability to point to the fact that
transportation service is more fa
vorable than it was two years ago.
On the contrary, extraordinary ef
forts are being put forth to secure
Ai, Kre S fi Poßßlh, ° improvement.
IJ 1 ® numbe r of cars re
paired in May and June. 1919, was
rully up to the normal number of
cars repaired, the Railroad Admln
-20 instructions on June
20, 1919, that all car forces be in
creased to the full standard mea-
S, l™ of *B-hours per week and that
additional shifts be worked where
tne additional employes could be
obtained and where they could be
ecnomically used. The showing na
tn, r .n' ly to be expected from the
putting into effect of these instruc
tions was hampered in July by the
intervention of practically a double
holiday and, of course, was tempor
arily prevented in August by the
strikes of a large number of shop
employes. Conditions having now
been resored to normal, it is ex
pected that these instructions will
promptly show a most favorable re
sult. Further than this, the Rail
road Administration instructed on
August 16, 1919. that all car forces
be put on a basis of 54-hours per
week. It is believed that this in
struction will result in a marked
improvement, also in the monthly
repair of a much greater number
of cars than the normal number
and will seadily increase the num
ber of cars actually available for
service as compared with preceding
In addition to this, the Railroad
Administration is rapidly getting
the benefit of the service of a large
number of new cars constructed
during Federal control but whose
introduction into service was post
poned on account of inability to
agree with the railroad corporations
as to the acceptance of the cars.
This inability has been overcome.
Between August 1 and September
1 23,564, of these cars have been
