Railroad Reserve Force
Is Senator Thomas' Plan;
A bill of introduction by Senator
Thomas of Colorado just before the
Senate adjourned on November 19
provides for the creation of a rail
road army reserve force of 200,000
tnen to bo trained at land grant agri
cultural colleges for service on the
railroads in times of emergency. Men '
between 18 and 39 years of age will,
eligible for enlistment, but not
for re-enlistment. The term of en
listment would be for ten years with
a provision for ttyelve months' train
ing for work as train operatives,
hostlers or telegraph operators, and
during the training period the men |
would receive regular army pay.
If in time of emergency they were
put to work on railroads they would
receive the usual railroad pay, but
would be barred from having any
connection with a labor union.

Former Western Maryland
Official Is Well Known
Here; October Elections
C. R. Gray, former head of the West
ern Maryland Railroad Company, and
well known in railroad circles here:
was yesterday elecfed president of
the Union Pacific. In a statement is
sued after meeting; of Board of Direct
ors. Judge S. R. Lovett says:
"At the regular monthly board
meeting C. R. Gray was elected presi
dent of the Union Pacific system com
panies, with headquarters at Omaha,
Neb., effective January 1, 1920.
"Heretofore there has been a presi
dent of the Union Pacific Railroad
Company and Oregon Short Line Rail
• road Company, with headquarters at
' Omaha, and a president of the Ore
gon-Washington Railroad and Navi
gation Company, with headquarters
at Portland. Ore. This was necessary
during the extension of the system to
Pugct Sound and the completion of
terminals at Seattle, Aacoma and
Olympia, and the development at
Spokane and in eastern Washington.
But it has long been intended that,
upon the practical completion of these
projects, there should be a single
president of the entire system locat
ed at Omaha, who should have super
vision of all departments in the West,
including the traffic department, for
merly under control of a director of
"E. E. Calvin, whose jurisdiction
heretofore has been limited to the
Union Pacific and Oregon Short Line,
hus been appointed vice-president in
charge of operations, effective at the
end of Federal control, and as such
will have supervision of the opera
tions of the Oregon-Washington rail
road and navigation lines, as well as
of the Union Pacific and Oregon Short
line railroads.
"H. M. Adams has heretofore been
appointed vice-prei®dent in charge of
trj.ffic of the entire system.
"This organization more effectually
unifies the operations of all the sys
tem properties, and we deem ourselves
fortunate in securing the services of
Mr. Gray as ihe chief of these opera
tions. I continue as chairman of the
executive committee with the same
jurisdiction as In the past."
This will not disturb the existing
headquarters of the Oregon Short
Line at Salt Lake City, nor of the
Oregon-Washington Railroad and
Navigation Company at Portland, Ore.

May Keep Railroads For

Some railroad men, who believe
that the railroads will be returned

opinion that the United States rail- j

of existence for at least a year from >
January 1, 1920, the date accepted |
commonly as the end of the govern- !
ment control. It is pointed out that
it will take a year, and probably two ,
years, for the railroad administration
to wind up Its affairs. During this
period, however, it would not have
any authority over the railroads.
Inventories are being taken in all
initial line offices, and all officials
and clerks have been instructed to
have this work finished not later !
than December 31. Another straw i
that indicates the trend of the wind
is the warning issue to railt-oads to
keep intact their rate functions, j
which is accepted by railroad men j
as another reason why they believe I
