Age 11 years or over, Tipton Tribune By DONALD DHVIS ROANOKE, Va. (UPI) -The Norfolk and Western Railroad was chugging along in a sea of paper when its new president, John P. Fishwick, caiied his top men together recently in a hotel .baiiroom. .The N&W, whiie investing $4.9 million iast year in vital new rail on winch its trains may run, had shelled out $2.5 million for paper and paper. forms. This kind oi expense, plus the uncountable cost of wasted paperwork effort, must be cut ' drastically, Fishwick declared. He pointed to a mountain of forms and computer printouts reguiariy used by tiie railroad and assembled in the green- carpeted baiiroom of the Hotel Roanoke and announced the start of "Operation Wastebasket." Form Examination Every department head was • instructed to examine every form in his department, keep or improve what' was necessar'u and . throw awah the rest. "I don't want anyone to leave until we get the job done," Fishwick Said. ' "1 don't think you have anything- more important to do. The railroad wiii run even .if we have to stay- in his room ali day." Fishwick was simply trying to come to grips with' a problem plaguing the entire American business community, •it consumes 9,000 tons of paper everli working day for strictly business purposes. That's " about 70 pounds of paper" filled out or received by the average worker in business per year. Mmst firms try periodically to cut their paperwork by 10 to 50 per cent but it nearly aiways builds back up again. This is - such a fact of business iife that the consumption of commercial-business paper grows faster than the . economy itseif. The NaAV's research department made a study of excess paperwork and auuised the railroad's executives — in a 200- page . document — how to determine what . should be thrown out. Other Finding The - railroad's computet oozes out LGOG-page printouts, 'the • research• showed,- but the information actually needed often totais only seven or eight pages. Dr. Paui Zeis, the Ni-W's research director, detailed other findings: — Aimost every report has too many .copies going too many •places. — Tiie only purpose of some reports is to check on other reports. — Too long. — Many reports aimed at savins; uuiiars, such as a systems price listing, mjy cost more than they save. Fishwick indeed did keep his executives ill the ballroom all day.-, tossing, red, green-and yeiiow forms into big black wastebaskets. The department •heads continued their paper- cutting efforts through the following week and reported further progressm. Fishwick's office junked 24 of 1' the 60 forms and reports it i.., . been handling regularly.- 'i .v computer operation, pern -ip the largest in Yirgttua, eliminated., one daily report in.it totailed 3,000 pages. And l .i.r department estimated it • ut back its monthly use of pa;,i.-i by eight miies. These and other initial results led the N&W management to consider Operation WastebasKet worthwhile. A finai judgement on its success was withheld pending the arrival of reports on it • from each department head. Quotes In The News many reports are too WASHINGTON -Defense Secretary Melvin K. Laird.' ordering the Pentagon's spy operation, to report to him in efforts to put inteUiieuce activities under stronger civilian control: "Actions have been taken U-. eliminate some of the past abuses, incident to such activities. But further corrective actions are necessary as a matter of .urgent priority." WASHINGTON .. - The Fee and Drug Administration, truing of mercury found i: swordfish: "Irrespective of tiie sunns .. the mercury and the relative! small amount of swumii consumed in tiie United St.it. it is considered that the regui.! consumption of foods known I contain mercury above midline levels is an unneces-i and avoidable risk." tag Alive Statistics are very impersonal. They don't have names . ; . just numbers. They don't have wives or husbands or children. Just numbers. But they can be translated ... into grim headlines. "Tragedy Mars Family Reunion," "Drunken Driver Kills Child;" "Collision Wipes Out Family." Somehow, statistics seem to gain something in the translation. They gain personality . .. and an ugly twist. Numbers become names. Names become people. All of a sudden, people become statistics. Two long holiday weekends are ahead. Lots of statistics are in the making. Don't be one. Drive carefully. If you drive, don't drink. When you take off for the holidays this year. ....take care. Stay alive! •WB)Vs'
