As has been noticed lately a man has been waiting for her every day after school. Edith Kobe is a very industrious person. She packs her books home in a grip to get them all. Why not let Dan do it? Miss Gardner and Miss Grady went to Seattle to see the flyelrs. They were noticed enjoying the Jaet Russell comedy at the Palace Hip. Mr. Cain likes to hear differen opinions on a subject, but Le:e thinks he doesn't give her a chanoe to express hers so she just naturally lets them slip out.

Government Ownership According to available reports and statistics IN FRANCE the private systems' net income last year aggreg&ted 732 million francs while the State Railway had a deficit of 145 mtll. ion francs. IN ITALY on account of inefficiency and poor service, and a deficit of 11/4 billion lire in 1922, the Government last year offered the railroads for private operation. IN ANADA a former Comptroller of Statistics in the Canadian Depart. ment of Railways says conditions have grown immeasurably worse under Government operation; very heavy losses have been in- curred which must be met by increased taxation. IN SWITZERLAND net revenue has not been afllcient to meet fed charges in any year since 1914. A petition for denationalization has been circulated throughout the country. IN SEDEN a special committee appointed by the Government recom. mended abolition of Government operation: The Government to continue to supply working capital and retain right of inspection. IN MF.2gIO the National Railways' report for 1923 shows liabilities 239,500,000 pesos in excess of assets. Net operating revenues were 9,700,000 pesos but interest requirements amounted to over 24,000,000 pesos. IH BRAZIL the British Financial Mission recommends that the Central Brazil Railroad be sold to private interests. Its expenses are greater than receipts and it is inefficiently managed. Instead of being taxed to make up railway deficits, as in these foreign lands, the public in this country now collects a MtalD ltl;a:nD tY ;n oTnYt o fwnr proa:?ilro ads.
