Omaha, Nebraska, Saturday, Nov. 24, 1934
Recently a blunt-nosed train, looking much
like a rocket on wheels, rolled into the Grand
Central Station in New York. Bearing the
name, “ M'10001, ” it brought with it, in the
words of the New York Herald Tribune, “the
railroad's answer to aviation.” Only 57 hours
before, it had left Los Angeles—a continent
away. Counting all stops, it averaged almost
a mile a minute on the run—and these aboard
spent but two business days in transit.
M-10001 is a new development by the Union
Pacific Railroad, which has pioneered so many
phases of transport in the past. Stream-lined
to the highest practical degree, and built of
aluminum, the train represents the ultimate in
comfort, speed and efficiency. It marks a new
forward step in the long inarch of develop
ment of surface transportation.
* It is a far cry from the day when the golden
spike was driven, marking the completion of
the first transcontinental railroad, and. a
wheezy locomotive moved forward to the
shouts of jubilant thousands, to the day when
the M-10001 pulled, triumphantly into New
York. The best in railroad travel of that time
was much inferior to the worst of the present.
Yet, as time is measured, the spike was driven
only yesterday—almost, all of the major pro
gress in railroad transport has taken place
within living memory. The Ameican railroads
have shown a spirit of aggressiveness and the
; “will to achieve” that constitutes one of the
roost dramatic and inspiring pages in our in
To quote the Herald Tribune again, it is
hard to doubt that passenger travel on the
railroads is entering a new period.” When
the M-10001 crossed the United States, dip
ping off a mile every sixty seconds, it made
RESEARCH AND THE DAIRY
Scientific research is putting on increased
pressure to help drive depression from the
dairy farm. It is being applied to the dairy
farmer's major problem—overproduction. It
is developing new uses for milk and its pro
ducts. Such new uses opened new markets for
milk in the past and will open many additional
new markets in the future. More than 100 ne'v
uses for milk and milk products have been
developed in the last 75 years. The most signifi
cant developments are now coming from the
laboratories of the leading processors and dis
tributors of milk.
It was scientific research that made it pos
sible for the farmer’s product to be sold in
- evaporated form, in condensed form, in pow
dered form and to be marketed a malted tfnd
as acidolphilus milk. Each one of these forms,
when it was first developed, meant a substan
tial new msft’ket.
There was a time when research was largely
dependent upon individual effort.. In 1856 an
* inventor, Gail Borden, worked almost single
handed to develop a process for the aonden
mng *f fluid milk—the first method of pre
serving the paodiset.
Today, however, when milk prsduetian has
grown tremendous proportions, it is no longvr
the work ef tne o» two tedividuais to develop
new products. Often the completion of a single
piece of reaoaroh takes years ef tame *id the
combined efforts ef many people, v£th the fiti

may be judged by the fact that 60,000,000

United States annually and that about one

The large number of industrial uses for
casein have been the result of intensive re
search. Casein glue is one of the strongest ad
hesives known to science today. Casein is like
wise used by the automobile industry, in the
making of leather and of oil cloth, and solid
ified casein is made into buttons, beads, comb,
cigarette holders, fountain pen barrels, pipe
stems, radio parts, etc.

A stable and progressive mining industry
is absolutely essential to the perpetuation of a
modern industrial civilization. Metals enter in
to everything wre buy and need and use.
Alining creates new wealth. It creates jobs,
taxes, investments, capital. It literally “makes
money.’’ It stimulates the entire industrial and
agricultural order—to the benefit of all.
Today the mining outlook seems consider
ably better than for several years past. New
properties are being developed, old ones re
opened. If that trend continues, it will be a
mighty aid to the cause of general recoverv.
NATIONALIZED REGULATION FOR
In a recent address, Francis V. Keesling,
President of the American Life Convention,
said: ‘ ‘ There are evidences of direct effort to
nationalize in some manner superintendence
and regulation o life insurance companies. No
one who has a thorough understanding of the
important part that is played by the so-called
smaller life insurance companies in the iasur
ance world should participate in aid of any
such movement.. .There is an assurance of
justice and safeguarding of the public welfare
under state supervision. ’ ’
The effort of which Mr. Keesling speaks is
simply part and parcel of an effort to regi- *
•ment all business, and to subject it to bureau
cratic W ashington supervision. One wonders
how life insurance companies would have fared
during the last few years if such a policy had
been in effec . Regulation would have been
inflexible, heavy-handd, unsympathetic. As it
is, the state regullatory bodies have done a
splendid work—a work that is reflected in the
magnificent record of the life companies.
Their rulings have conformed to local needs
and conditions—they have not consisted of
sweeping dicta that might fit a ease in Maine,
b*ut cause havoc three thousand miles away in
No other nation is so thorouchlv insured as
is America—no other nation has a life insur
ance industry comparable to ours. In the face
of the severest economic disturbance in living
memory, the eolmpanics have, on the whole,
done business as usual and weathered the storm
without serious damage. State regulation has
been a contributing factor in making that
achievement possible—why replace it with an
untried theory that is opposed to our funda
mental principles involving the relationship of
government and business?
. Fighting’ Fires Before They Start
,Most of us think of firemen only as capable
firefighters, ready to dash into burning build'
ings, to save lives and to direct powerful
iStreaims ef water against the flame. How far
modern fire departments hove progressed from
this is emphasized by three recnt news reports:
In New York City, firemen installed several
protective devioesN and safety materials in a
condemned tenement house, and in order to test
them, set the structure on fire. Although con
siderable inflammable material had been dis
tributed in the building and fires were started
in different, places, the tenement refused to
bum. Automatic sprinklers and other safe
guards put out tfie flames as fast as they were
In fcdianapolis, during Fire Prevention
\V eek, the fire department gave a demonstra
tion of extinguishing oil and gasoline fires,
to show that this type of fire should never bo
fought with water. The fires were quickly ex
tinguished by the use of foam.
Another report tells ef firemen who arc at
'tendkig Fire College and studying fire engin
eering. As many as 1(4000 enrolled for the
courses tins year. Sobm of tUe srabjeotei taught
are chemistry, poison gases, rating and build
AH of this cheeks with reports received at
the Nation*! Board of Hre Underwriters, show

in efforts to educate people to the danger of
ffee hazards. Firemen inspect hones and busi
n-eao eotablialpnents and recommend neccassry
nnpnovemeats and changes. They give talks
in schsols, before stria clubs and ovsr redie
