State boards can assume such authority only when federal jiower is not excer- autics. Military aviation realists say tlie emphasis is being put on speeu because it captures the headlines and Ule public fancy. The result, they declare, is a mistaken idea that jet planes ai'c the last word and that the U. S. is on the verge of mustering rjush-bulton warfare. Actually, the only practical use yet figured out for the Jet plane Is limited reconnaissance work. Both Army and Navy experts admit they have no idea how long It would take to make the jet plane worth anything as n direct weapon. If war were to_ come tomorrow, the best military aircraft nvailnblc would be the ones that were tops at V-J Day.

'Attempts to put guns and cannons on the jet fighters which fly in the GOO-mile-per-hour range have been completely unsuccessful, the experts admit.

The public thinks we make 15£ What do you think they should make? The public thinks 10* would be fair What are the facts? Actually the railroads earned only 2 K% in 194B. To provide the service you want, railroads need to earn at least 6£. But estimates indicate that •• even with the recent freight rat« increase, the return for 1947 will be only about half that remiiiement. Why it takes 6% to make the grade... Impartial research polls show that, on the average, people Ihink we make 15%. They also think a fair return would be 10%. What He But for the year I9-IG, with the biggest peace-lime traffic in history, the railroads earned only . . . 2-'i%. This is less than one-half the comparable earnings for other industries. The reasons for this low return are not hard to find. Since 1039 railroad wages have increased S2'/, 0 % and the prices of fuel, materials and supplies have gone up 6l' i /i'>%. Bui freight rates have just recently been increased nn average of only ; J7''/n?i— a year after the effective date of the last big wage increase. What About This Year? It is estimated that the rclvirii for ! 9-17, even with the recent freight, rate increase, will be only about half the 6% minimum return required to provide the improvements and service needed. This will be because of increased costs of materials and supplies; because cer- lain wage increases granted in 1946 were in effect for only part of 1946 hut will he in effect for all of 1947; because of increased spci,-i;il payroll laxcw on railroads; and because of a decline in pa.sKt'tiper Inisine^s. What Docs Tltix Mean Tt> Ymt? The answer is "Plenty!" Your standard of living is Die highest in the• world because of MASS I'KonurrrjoN. • Utif mass production would not be possible without MASH TIIANSI'OIITATION, which UlC railroads provide at low cost. Why 6% In Needed The kind of service your standard of living requires lakes a lot of money for new equipment and improvements. To carry out the post-war improvement program for better equipment, tracks, terminals and modern safely devices, a minimum return of 6% is needed. So when the railroads make only Vi ccnlji oi> each $1.00 of their net property investment, it concerns you.* The funds for future new equipment ami improvements must come from railroad <:nn!inj;s and nlso from investors. They will furnish money on reasonable terms only if I hey have confidence in the future earnings of the railroads.
