PORTER PLANS TRUSTEES' PROGRAM Constituting the first co-ordinated meeting of school trustees and administrators on a state level, a successful simultaneous convention was held in Los Angeles recently, from which scores of local participants have now returned. The trustees' program was planned and executed by Mrs. I. E. Porter, of Bakersfield, executive secretary, who was reelected, with the other trustees' staff, to serve the California School Trustees Association for another term. The meeting was a departure also In co-ordinating the P. T. A. program with the other two related agencies. This was done by participation of leadership headed by Mrs. J. J. Garland, state president, Menlo Park, rather than state convention. Responsibility of school Hoards In the current and postwar education- for-peace program, was the point of emphasis for the trustees meeting, sessions of which were directed by Dr. Louise Hector of Berkeley, president, with 300 or more persons participating. The joint session was on educational postwar planning, and officers of the three groups were platform guests at Biltmore hotel, where the trustees convention was held for three days. Among important speakers were Colonel Alex Heron, of California State Reconstruction and Re-employment Commission, Dr. Theodore 1 [slen Chen, Dr. Vierling Kersey. Patrick Michael Cunning, Dr. Virgil K. Dickson and scores of others.

BUY BANK OF AMERICA MONEY ORDERS Bank «f Aatrit* TOoney Crdtr '• • I I he war seems to have given the American people a new interest in their railroads. Perhaps it is because they have seen the enormous war load the trains are carrying. Perhaps because so many people, including thousands in uniform, are riding trains for the first time. As the war in the Pacific steps up, you'll see more and more S.P. locomotives pulling heavier and heavier war loads. In this advertisement, Southern Pacific shows you: How to tell Locomotives opart 4-8-8-2 This is the "Big Bertha" of locomotives—Southern Pacific's giant Articulated Consolidation, These mammoth engines pull trains over the High Sierra and other western mountain ranges. "4-8-8-2" is an example of the universal "shorthand" used for designating types of locomotives in the United States. It means that there are 4 small wheels under the leading truck, two sets of 8 driving wheels, and 2 small wheels under the trailing truck. To tell locomotives apart, you simply count the wheels, separating the smaller wheels in the front^and back from the big wheels that drive the locomotive. The Articulated Consolidation, or "AC", weighs more than 500 tons, with tender, is 125 feet long, and develops 6,000 horsepower. >OOOO WOO OOCJ GOOD 4-8-2 ooo ooo 4-8-4 These locomotives are known as "General Service" type ("GS" for short). They pull the streamlined Daylights and the Lark, as well as other passenger trains and fast freights. Length of engine and tender is 110 feet, weight more than 400 tons, horsepower 5,500. These powerful and faithml engines are universally known as the "Mountain" type (designated by "MT" on the cab), used in both freight and passenger service. Length of engine and tender, 97 feet Weight, 330 tons. OOO 4-6-2 WWW \JU\J 4-10-2 Originally designed by Southern Pacific, these engines are appropriately known as "Southern Pacific" type. They have three cylinder! instead of two. Length of engine and tender ia 101 feet, weight 368 ton*, horsepower 4,100. This is another faithful locomotive known throughout the United States as the "Pacific" type (designated by the letter "P" on the cab). Engine and tender are 91 feet long and weigh about 285 tone.
