CAUSES LOSS CAR SERVICE Tho AHegehny Regional Advisory lioard, its special committee, on complete unloading of freight care «mt in cooperation with the American Railway Association'^ local car service division oUk'o, is directing special activity toward t.he complete unloading of care released ot automobile lading and those arriving with corn- niodltiee u«el by coutractore and constructors. Cooperation of (he receivers of motor cars and trucks is being sought through medium ot local automobile dealers associations nt Pittsburg, Connetlfevllltt, Johnstown, Youngstown, Wheelng, Steubeuvlllo, Cumberland, Altoona, Canton and New Caatlo. Similar action Is being undertaken with tho contractor a n d constructors through the state chapters ot - the Associated. Contractors of America, a National organization. This parallels the handling which has boon con.Hifitently followed in connection with each construction contract let by tho Pennsylvania Highway Department, in which tho road contractor's cooperation, in completely unloading cure has been solicited. The board's theory iu t h a t a car la in (it condition to receive iny klml of lading when turned out by its manufacturer and would remain ao if each consignee accepts the reeponsfbility ot completely unloading his consignment, including, of course, the dun- nage, blocking, bracing, etc., which is, in reality, an integral part of the consignment !y reason of the fact that itfl t r a n s p o r t a t i o n is covered ly the freight charges. Service ot the car ie not loet to tho public when tho d u t y Is done by the consignee. When left to be done by tho railroad there la a lose o£ one day for each car which meane the investment for a substitute together with attendant cost of handling.
