APRIL tT. l4i PAG FITS National Transportation Policy Urged by Norman Canadas whole transportation , demanded that low railway system should be studied by freight rates be charged on low-competent authority and then value commodities and higher a national transportation policy (rates on high-value traffic. The should be formulated, based on, railways were in effect perform-sound economics and fashioned 1 ing a government function, to serve the needs of the coun- But . truckers hauled only try as a w hole." This was the thesis proposed by Graeme C. Norman, assistant transportation economist, Canadian National Railways, in an address to the Cosmopolitan club in The Elite on Monday. He argued that all the countrys transportation facilities, including rail and piotor systems should be co-ordinated so that the people would get the maximum of service at the mini-1 mum or real cost to them-1 selves. The visitor spoke on behalf of i the Railway Association of Can-1 ada, which recently asked for and got an increase in freight rates. ' , Canada's rail freight transpor-l tation rates averaged less than ; one cent per ton per mile, Mr. Norman said.. This was lower by far than the rate of any, other country in the British , commonwealth, Europe or the I western hemisphere. (whatever traffic paid a profit. On the other hand, air freight Thus they cut into the 25 per costs were from 20 to 30 cents cent of traffic that enabled the railway to pay their way. All forms of transportation sea, land and air received government aid, but the railways suffered in comparison with others.

He had his lips drawn back and his bared teeth clenched, and he was looking at the effect admiringly. I mustnt have looked too impressed because he seemed to think some explanation was necessary and proceeded to give it to me. Look at all that money. he gloated, pointing to his teeth. "I just got one artificial tooth put in back and it has made me appreciate what a lot of money is tied up in these sound teeth. Why, every one of them is worth as much as a good suit. I am sure going to give them the best care it costs too much to get replacements. Then he gave himself another fixed grin in the mirror, let his face return to normal, handed the glass back to his secretary, and tore his attention from his teeth fo his business with me. But - his line of argument kept recurring to me all day. Maybe it would do us all good I thought, if once in a while we thought about how much our health means to us in money. If you really figured it out with a pencil you would find that being foolish with your health is throwing away a small fortune. Suppose someone asked you to estimate what a good pair of lungs were worth what would you say. Are they worth i good fur coat, a good house, a trip to California or overseas or maybe around the world. Well I dont think you would exchange a good pair' of lungs for any of those things, would you And yet there are- people who, while they agree in principle, are careless about knowing whether their lungs are healthy or not, if these people had a call from their fire insurance' agent telling them their insurance was about to expire they would get right busy to have it renewed. They would be willing to go to quite a bit of trouble. But if somebody says you can have a free chest X-ray by going down to the city hall they shilly shally around and dont get there. Queer, isnt it? ' A If you dont think its worth while on any other basis think of it in terms of money. How much are sound lungs worth to you? And is it as much as your insurance. After all, getting a -chest X-ray is about as near as you x:an come to insurance. It gives you the assurance that your lungs are all right if they are, and it warns you at the earliest 1 possible moment if something- is wrong. So get a chest X-ray when the travelling fluorographic X-ray unit comes to your district and do everything you can to push the pre venjtive program in your city and province.
