Omaha Boy in France Writes
Of Yankee Rail Efficiency
John Welsh, federal inspector ot
locomotives for this district, has re
ceived a letter from his son, Cor
poral Edmund Welsh, Company C,
Thirteenth regiment of engineers
(railway), American expeditionary
force. Edmund volunteered soon
after war was declared and went with
the first force of 10 regiments of
railway men to France. These are
the men who have put new life into
the French railways, especially those
near the front.
"We have been operating near a
large city which has been shelled, re
peatedly and which lias been a head
liner in the war dispatches since
soon after the war started," says Cor
His father believes he refers to
Verdun. It i? evident also that lie
is in a mountainous region, judging
from what he says of the way the
trains arc operated.
"We have no airbrakes on these
1 rains." he writes. "The method of
operating on heavy grades is to run
until about two-thirds of it is over
the highest crest of the grade. Then
it is stopped and the brakes are set
and we. go down grade under
steam. This is the only safe way of
operating on these grades without
It is evident also that the place
where young Welsh is serving is near
the trout, as he says there is a train
about every ,W minutes. There is no
time card. The line is double tracked
and a continuous stream of traffic is
kept going in both directions. Train
dispatching, he says, is done by
telephone. 11c declares the Ameri
can engineers arc putting real "Yan
kee" efficiency into the important
railway lines near the front in France.
Corporal Welsh's home is at 3361
Howard street. i

While the elimination of parlor
cars is a war measure, the order to
cease running them does not come
from the railroad war board. Passen
ger agents of the roads got together
and agreed to the proposition.
The saving in fuel by reason of
cutting out of the parlor car service
ts considerable. Railroad operating
men have figured it out that the haul
ing ot a parlor car 100 miles means
the consumption of one ton of coal,
thus to carry a car from Omaha to
Chicago would mean the burning of
live tons of coal, estimated as being
$5 a ton, o. a total of $25.
Out of Omaha there are something
like 100 parlor cars operated daily.

Job Seekers Storm
Hundreds of shivering job-seek
ers braved the zero weather Friday
and swarmed through the doors of
the Free Employment bureau in
the basement of the court house
in search of one of the "$5. $6.
$7-a-day positions," "hundreds" of
which were told of by two Omaha
newspapers as only awaiting ap-pl-'cants.
In the free news publicity given
the Free Employment bureau by
two newspapers, $75 a month jobs
were "going begging" and the un
employed of Omaha, mostly men
more than 50 years old, rushed to
fill the gaps in the business world.
They were informed that there
were no such jobs "going begging"
in the men's department. The in
formation was given to the news
papers by an emnloye of the de
partment, vho mistook the 20 odd
positions open for women ac
