And the more he continues in the publicity spotlight, the ):aTdcv is the task of "building up" tne royal family. Sau p Tiro D.ingfrs So the chances are that the cancellation brought forth some profound sighs of relief and even 'perhaps <i chuckle of pleasure. .reuses grunted ns of November 15. 1937. "The Increase requested represents less llian one percent of the whole-sale value of tlie goods at destination and the burden ot) commerce will not retard or re- slrlct the movement. Based on 1921 figures Ihe railways are now receiving 31',, less than at that lime ami the 15% 'requested is much lower thfin the percentage I » That's directly contrary to some reports that 'the Uritisii government, with some deep, sly purpose of its own. had put the OK on the proposed Jiuml. Those at the . top saw two dangers in the proposed trip. Cnc x v/as that the duke might, be lionized, and his trip turned into :i Irinnipliat lour. Then even the papers in England hostile to him could scarcely have kept the duke off their fi-ont pages. Vast crowds in the streets of New Work and other big cities to greet the duke, lea ana talk at the White House, little happy im- prcmptu speeches to crowds gathered nt railroad stations, broadcasts over national hook-ups—Ihose things would all liavc been front- page news to' even t:-c most reluctant editors. ..The: .other possibility was lhat the dtike might have 'met with markedly hostile receptions on t):c part of /; labor unions, anti-Faspist nnd anti-Nazi orgunizatlcns. If the duke, fay, had been hissed on landing in New York, and gotten Ihe royal raraberry from crowds wherever he went, thai would have left a bitter taste in England. Alter all, he was once a BritisJi king. He has doffed the crown, but he is still a son of the House of Windsor, and bitter and 'narked affronts to him would have seemed indirectly aimed at nil (hings British.

This outlay on the parl of the railroads helped to creale belter conditions of business through purchases which are unbelievable In quantities. The purchases by American railroads amount lo 23% of nil Ihe bituminous coal mined in this country; 10% o l nil the fuel oil produced; 17% of.all our iron and steel production and 20% of nil limber cut.
