(UP) — The vast annual migration of Christmas home goers moved Into Its peak today, taxing rail and air transportation facilities throughout the United States to capacity. Railroad and air line officials expected "the greatest holiday business In years." They were unable to predict the number of passengers they will carry. Railroad officials entered the holiday period with expectation of a 20 per cent increase over 1936. Air lines were booked solidly for all regularly scheduled flights and the few special flights for which coi'lnnient was nvalablc. "We could get twice as many passengers if we had Ihe facilities." was the consensus among air line officials. Lower fares, hazardous highway conditions and the fact that Christmas falls on Saturday were credited by both airline and railroad officials with increasing their holiday traffic. The holiday traffic began last week, end as thousands of students started home. It reached its peak today and will laper off slightly tomorrow. Travel will be negligible Christmas Day. Return trips will be spread over the week between Christmas and New Year's Day. Air Line Business Rooms Air lines, which began rceiving their special holiday traffic in volume today, transcontinental and Western Air scheduled extra- sections today and tomorrow along coast to coast route.

Skopplny Tourist "Mating" Agencies Put Travelers On Road To Friendship NEW YORK, Dec. 23.—Tlie lour- Ist "mating" agencies are doing a flourishing business, now that the season is brisk and the snow clouds loom over New York. "Mating" tourists for a trip Is a special kind of business. These travel agencies serve Ihelr purpose in making up a congenial group for trips lo Chicago and polnls west. They do nol provide the means of transportation. If you have a car and are seeking a few fellow passengers to share expenses, the agency will round them up for yon, for a reasonable commission. If you don't have n car of vour own, the agency will Introduce you lo people who do; and who happen lo be going your way. The tariffs are not high. They run, generally, from $20 to $40 for an auto trip to Chicago and from $40 to $60 for a transcontinental hop to California. Or Just enough to pay for half the gas and oil, with a little over for the folk who've introduced you lo the other party. The agency people confide that old ladies with dogs are the most popular passengers, since animals aren't permitted to travel with their owners by rail. On almost any day of the week, amusing problems come up with which Ihese lourfsLi' "mating" agencies must grapple. For Instance, , two men got together In the agency one day and seemed to be favorably impressed with each other from the slart. They went out to lunch with the firm's blessings. But the trip was never made. Seems that the luncheon chat got around lo baseball and one was a Nallonal League faiv the other n devotee of the Yankee division. The meal wound np with a cancellation of their traveling plans nnd brief friendship. On another occasion, the agency grew leary of placing certain people together. Two of them were chorus girls who were break- Ing In a slsler net and were booked for a night club In Los Angeles. And one of the oilier passengers was a prim Dakota school teacher on her way back home Some weeks later, she wrote Ihe agency and commented upon Ihe charms of the Iwo chorines. She asked Ihe ngency how she might secure newspaper clipping telling of their progress In the show world. One of the agencies feels pretty good because n young man once set out to a Job in a Texas law olTlcef with his uncle and wa thrown In with a young-lady on her way to the coast to visit an aunt. She never reached the othei coast because the boy proposed to her somewhere near St Louis nnd she blithely accepted. Tlie uncle and aunt have declared themselves pleased since Ihen. celved government orders \,. speo^ foreign Interests even at the' risk of permitting Chinese' to escape, It was understood today. Tlic.orders, said to have been Issued within the last few days, were regarded as a direct result'of the government's grave * anxiety over United states and British protests against Japanese army and navy, attacks • on American and BrltUh- gunboats. Reference to the new orders, It was understood, will be made .in notes to be sent lo the United States and British governments on the attacks on Ihe United States gunboat Panay and the British gunboat Ladybird. Issuance of the orders was regarded here as noteworthy In view of previous assurances that care would be taken to guard against attacks on foreign Interests. ,,' The foreign office, It was learned today, has begun drafting a reply lo American notes.
