ALTON EVENING TUESDAY, AUC3UST 13,1003 Indiana University Operating Last Showboat on River fc(MCLARE, 111. (AP) - Th last of the roving showboats selling a bit of nostalgia alon Illinois' Ohio River waterfront th month. Headed downstream armed wit a steam calliope, the Majestic spending its 40th theatrical sea son stopping at four Illinois ports the double-deck barge is th only showboat still cruising th Ohio and Mississippi on a sea sortal schedule. It represents theatrical • rebirth t hat almos didn't' happen. The craft, pushed around th rivers by a stern-wheel towboai was built in 1923 by Capt. T.J Reynolds who earlier lost som of his family in a showboat fire The 425-seat waterborne audi torium would shoulder its wa into a port already crowded with showboats. Musical battles woulc be held between calliopes to lun patrons. At least this is how the old timers recall it. By 1959, whil summer stock productions were multiplying in New England, th tired and weathered Majestic wa. put on sale as the last represent ative of a tradition. Indiana University bought the craft and its towboat. The barge was made a summer school foi theatre students who keep tradition alive with summer cruises and melodrama productions. The Majestic has traveled as far downstream as Shawneetown Truck Fleets Big Business ToCompanies By SAM DAWSON AP Business News Analyst NEW YORK (AP) — That old family argument over when's the time lo stop paying repair bills on the old car and start making monthly payments on a new one is echoed today in offices of corporations that have their own fleet of trucks. An estimated 7.3 million trucks are now operated by manufacturers, wholesalers and retailers, most owned outright but many leased. Northwestern University's transportation center says 18,000 companies have fleets of 10 or more trucks. Industry sources say the average age of commercial and industrial trucks that are company owned is now 6.8 years, compared with 4.8 years in 1941. Truck makers contend that some of the age increase is due to sturdier qualities of the new models. Truck leasing companies argue that much of the stretch-out in usage is due to the increased number of companies now owning their own fleets and to a yen (just like that of a family budget manipulator) to get a few more miles out of the old vehicles. Both makers and leasers of trucks (common carriers as well) stress savings they see if obsolete equipment is ditched. James W. Millard, manager of General Motors' transportation productivity research department, estimates industry might shave its material handling costs by $15 billion annually, if it modernized its transportation and material handling equipment. He says that GM research teams have yet to complete study of individual truck fleets without finding a savings poten tial greater than 20 per cent and are convinced that 10 per cent svould be the minimum saving. Armund J. Schoen, chairman of the American Automotive Leasing Association, says the number o: leased trucks has increased fron 240,000 in 1958 to 400,000 today He credits the drive by corporate financial officers to cut costb in all operations. But he adds tha they face a new cost, that o obsolescence. Shoen's own company, Wheels Inc., reports its study of 2,347 companies operating 47,841 trucks shows that gasoline driven ve hides 5 years old or older had operating and maintenance cost that averaged 3.1 cents a mile more than for younger trucks. For diesel units the excess op erating cost of the older over th younger trucks averaged 1.7 cents a mile when driven between 200, 000 and 300,000 miles and 2.' cents a mile when driven longe distances, The leasing company presiden figures this out to a lo* $31,000 a year per million mile lor gas units and $26,000 fo diesel fleets. during the four seasons I.U. operated it. It will reach farther downstream this month for the first time in many years. The Majestic will be at Paducah, Ky., until Aug. 17, then will head to Metropolis, 111., Aug. 18, Cairo, 111., Aug. 20-22; and Hickman Ky., on the Mississippi, Aug. 23-5. The tour began June 7 in Cincinnati. The 14-student cast and crew of six operating the Majestic say the barge might have been abandoned or have been permanentb moored as a nightclub had no the university intervened will theatrical intentions. The university provides students with room and board but no oth er compensation. The Majestic returns a thin profit which is usec immediately on long-needed re sairs. A business representative saic he Majestic's small profit indicates why private ownership o! showboats appears a thing of the •>ast. The university can call its oper- ition non-profit. A private oper- itor, however, would face burdensome salaries for a professional roupe and for a larger crew vhich the Coast Guard probably vould require of a private opera- ion. But as one student remarked: "The Majestic just might drum ip enough trade along the rivers o make a new market for the rofessional boat some day."
