Many men have given out with many reasons for their hours sp_ent at- the knuckle couplers and their moody passion for the smoke generator, but none of them seemed, valid. Almost always, men are on : the defensive: ."Well." they . say, "Harry S. Truman likes electric trains—so who am I to be an intellectual snob?" • Or, "I'm a salesman who should've been an engineer, so what's it : to yo'u.?" • \ .'To get to the, heart of the matter, I went to the head of the Lionel Corporation,'Lawrence Coiv- eri,; whose grandfather, J. Lionel Cowen, invented' the"parlor loco- tnotive more than' 50 years ago, and is .now known endearingly as f the '"'toy train tycoon." sLawrence not only has callouses on. his knees but callouses on his hands, from 'rubbing, them against about 55-million dollars a year in''business, and he admits he is prejudiced in favor of small locomotives for big men. •_ ';. • ;,But looking beyond the prejudice, he says,-he has the. answer: ^ j"When a man operates-an elec- •? trie train, he is the complete and entire boss of the project. He is the engineer,. the conductor, the switchman, and the president and trie chairman of the board of the railroad. . ;"Where .else can a man:more effectively'know, and display, hisj own prowess?" I It should also be pointed out; that when a grown man suddenly i has it in his power to switch a I stock car into,a siding and, with! a single gesture, unload a pasture-1 fun of cows—well, it boosts hisj morale. '"As president of the railroad, he can be proud of an efficient stock car operation. As farmer, he. can be gratified at the prompt! delivery of his cattle." ' •If he has had a hard day at the office and is afflicted with jumpy nerves and irritations, a man can imagine that' old blubberhead (his boss) is on a passenger'car arid can proceed to run this particular car off the tracks.
