Efforts to reduct the percentage of locomotives out of service for repairs are being made by railway executives who declare the car shortage is due to the fact that too many locomotives are unfit for service at the eame time. A bulletin issued under the author ity of the Association of Railway Executives to unify all forces in the effort to eecure maximum service from existing transportation facili ties shows that an early and substan tial reduction in the number of loco motives now unfit for service must be made. This move, according to the advi ' scry committee of the Association of Railway Executives, Is an essential part of the more-transportation pro (jram, mapped out since the roads have been returned to private owner ship. Heavier loading may be achiev ed, car movement may be increased, but adequate means to haul the traffic is indispensable, the bulletin continues. Big Per Cent in Shops On September 15, of alKJocomo tives.s17.1 per cent were outjof ser vice for repairs requiring -over 24 hours and 6.4 per cent for repairs requiring less than 24 hours. ; As a basis for comparison altho the statistics were kept on a different basis at that time in September, 1917. 13.5 per cent of freight loco motives were in shops for repairs or awaiting repairs. The number of locomotives out of service for repairs is said to be too many even if there were In ser vice all the locomotives needed. According to figures compiled by the Railway Age. the average num. ber of locomotives provided annually oy tne railroads for eight years prior to the war was 2,970. The same authority estimates that the accumulated shortage of the years 1317, 1318 ana 1919 was 3,190.

SCOTLAND YARD TO QUESTION VANDERLIP Britain Interested in Movements of Yank Who Made Big Russian Deal. London. Nov. IS. The American embassy here was notified today that Washington D. Vanderlip, California oil and mining engineer who recently was in Moscow, will be closely ques tioned by the intelligence department of Scotland Yard on his arrival in London if the present plans of the police are carried out. The notifi cation was given as a matter of cour tesy, and is not given in like cases of lesser importance. The interrogation will not neces sarily be made with the view of tak ing action against Mr. Vanderlip's presence in England, it was said, but with the intention of ascertaining exactly what his activities have been in Russia in view of the many con flicting reports published In London. Such interrogation, it was pointed out. would be in conformity with the recently adopted attitude of the Bri tish government of discouraging trav el between Russia and England. ' Mr. Vanderlip was in Stockholm up to a few days ago. He recently returned from Moscow and gave out a statement asserting that he had se cured a concession of 400.000 square miles of land in Siberia, for a syndi cate of Americans. X DR. H. G.
