These are: 1?A definite date must be fixed to return the roads to their owners after the close of the war. 2?Some protection must be given the "Jerk-water lines," now threatened with bankruptcy due to Director McAdoo's McAdoo's decision not to include them In his consolidated fystem.

By the members of Congress Who canvassed the situation, the Senate Senate Committee wa< declared to be even more Insistent for these two points. McAdoo te Be Wltaeaa. Director McAdoo is expected to be quizzed by both committees on these two points before the end of the week. Acting for thfe small lines. Col. B. B.

Nevertheless, Interstate Commerce Commissioner Anderson restated Director Director McAdoo's opinion that many little little roads were overcapitalized; of service only to localized, unimportant Industries; and likely to prove a financial financial drain rather than a military asset. He replied to questions that President President Wilson Bad ample poaer under the bill to "take over every transportation transportation ^?tem down to a Jitney." Queries at Director McAdoo's offloe offloe as to what particular lines would be taken over drew {he reply that i the lists were being prepared now by Commissioner Woolley and McAdoo's McAdoo's attorney, John Barton Paine. They will not be published until complete. complete. Bird M. Robinson, attorney for the short l(jies of the South, declared that his members would Insist that the legal notice they received from McAdoo was a legal taking over.

Between 700 and 800 ships, tugs, etc., have been taken from private Arms and are now used by the navy.
