BIJKTON HEATH NKA Stuff Correspondent NEW YORK.—One of the most discussed difficulties in railroad :ravel during wartime Is the sleeper situation. Not only do vacationers and pleasure travelers have to delay winter vislU to Florida nnd Arl- scona, and summer trips to Maine and Michigan, but men home from the denting fronts and busy war executives .are forced to nmke long trips In day coaches because they can't' get berths and they can't •ait.:;,,.;, ,.,•,., Whcri..ww broke in 1939, the Pullman Company owned 0243 sleeping cars. By I ho; end of 1944 the Pullman Compariy had 8000 sleepers. The railroads have a negligible number of, sleepers of their own. In 1939 the . Pullman company handled 11,549,947 overnight passengers—all civilians. Without , allowance for cars undergoing repair or on standby service, that was an average for the year of 1850 passengers per car. Last year, on the same basis each of Ihe company's 8000 sleepers would have handled 3600 overnight passengers. But last year the basis was not the same. Organized troop, movements complicated it What actually happened last year was that, on the average, half of the sleepers were used lo transport uniformed contingents being moved under orders, and civilians had to share the remaining half with service men and women traveling individually or in what might te called "less than carload lols." ATC HAS 1200 CAHS Twelve hundred of Ihe sleepers were government-owned troop-carriers operated as part of the Pullman pool for the Army Transpor- ilion Corps. Tn addition, the arm:l services had first call, al any lament's notice, on every car iii xistence. lii'that half of the cars cvolcd lo organized troop movc- lents, the company handled almost ,400,000 soldiers, sailors and ma- ines, carrying each an average of bout. 1900 miles. In the other approximately .4000 ars the company handled " about 1.000.000 civilians and Individual ervice men (traveling on leave furlough, or muter orders alone r in small groups) and carried ach an average of about 000 miles. The business handled last year 11 the approximately 4000 cars used or civilian and individual service nan purpose was almost twice ns :reat as that done in 1939 with more ban 6200 cars.

Millions Switch To Mutton Suet Idea For Chest Cold Aid Relieves Muscular Aches and Chesl Muscb Tightness Many mothers all over America are switching to this idea of gel- ting last relief for these ehest coh miseries.

Wlich the Army decides to move division, or two or three, from \rizona, let's say, to an East Coast rart, it doesn't tell the world hi ad- •fmce. It doesn't even tell the Pull- nan company until the last mo- nenl. So the use of sleepers for ither troop or civilian transporta- ion no longer can be scheduled H in advance^Cars.niust'be allocated swiftly to "the areas .where hey will be needed," ' and spares spoiled around to care for sudden emergencies. • " At the height of the last Christmas rush, when civilian efforts to get berths were at a. peak, the Army suddenly called for 1879 :ars—almost- a fourth of the total >ool—to move some troops. These had to be" provided on short notice vhatevcr else might not-be done.
