ANN ARBOR RAILROAD:
Halting of Local Line Would Affect Few
By TOHN NEUFELD
Daily Special Writer
(Editor's Note: This is the second
of two articles on the Ann Arbor
If the Ann Arbor Railroad suc-
ceeds in stopping its passenger
service on its 300 mile line running
from Toledo to Frankfort, few
students will probably be af-
During 1947, only 62,000 pas-
sengers were carried an average
of 50 miles each. This figure does
not include the special football
trains which bring fans to the
close proximity of the Stadium.
NEITHER THE football trains
nor the auto ferry will be affected
by hearings now being held in
Lansing to determine the future
status of passenger trains.
The auto ferry operates from
Frankfort, on Lake Michigan,
to Manistique and Menominee
in the Upper Peninsula and also
to three Wisconsin towns.
In former days, before auto-
imobiles and interurban railroads
became important, the Ann Arbor
had an important function to per-
form. An average speed of 27 mph

TRAVELING three weeks by rail
across India was a trying exper-
ience to Carnero.

to get to the diner and back again,
you have to wait for station stops

there is "quite capable, but not
large enough." There aren't
enough qualified men to fill the
thousands of unmanned govern-
mental posts, he said.
And from his observations, Car-
nero regards Communism in India
as in a "fairly dormant" state, un-

IN SIAM; Carnero praised Bang-
kok, the capitol, as "the Orient's
garden spot-marvelous for tour-
ists. There's so much to see and
buy. And jeeps are as numerous
as flies, as in many other Eastern
cities I saw," he noted.
He was surprised at the rapid
modernization pace Asia is fol-
lowing. In Bangkok alone, he
noticed ten or twelve different
In Australia, unbelievably prim-
itive cultures still flourish in the
western plains, Carnero observed.
He added that some tribes sell
boomerangs and wood trinkets to
passing train passengers - their
only means of livelihood.
FEELING STRONG kinships to-
ward Americans, Australians in
southeastern urban districts think
their future lies in copyilg U.S.

PRQF. EMERITUS Henry E.
Riggs, who was head of the civil
engineering department until 1930,
has written an instructive booklet
about his experiences as chief en-
gineer of the road from 1890 to
1895, entitled "The Ann Arbor
Railroad 50 Years Ago."
In his book, he describes the
transition of the "promoter-
built jerkwater line to. a real
railroad." At this time, the Hu-
ron River Bridge and the wooden
deck truss over Ann Arbor's
Main Street presented great
The boss thought the steam
shovel an "invention of the devil"
and Prof. Riggs had to work hard
to convince him that the shovel
was superior to a section hand.

PROF. RIGGS also describes
the early history of the railroad.
Four years before the first stretch
of the line was put in operation
in 1878, the building company
But a strike on Michigan
Central the next year gave new
impetus to further construction,
which would connect Ann Arbor
and Toledo, and thus make Ann
Arborites less dependent on the
Michigan Central line from De-
In its early days, the Ann Ar-
bor Railroad's growth paralleled
the development of Michigan.
Link after link of the road was
completed to facilitate communi-
cations with Michigan's north
THE RAILROAD is rich in in-
cidents that figure in Michigan
history, such as the strike in 1893,
which was followed by a four year
The strike was caused when
two engineers refused to join the
newly organized Brotherhood of
Locomotive Engineers. The pres-
ident of the line told the
Brotherhood when they de-
manded the discharge of the
two engineers: "I am running
this Railroad, get out of here
and strike, damn you."
"This strike is notable as the
first one which called for action
by injunction against a labor
union," according to Prof. Riggs.
Less than a month after the
strike was declared, a U.S. cir-
cuit judge decided that such a
strikejinterfered with Interstate
Commerce and should therefore

'Time for a (jange'
Says Illinois' Mehr
A self-described "suthern gentle-
man," Prof. Robert Mehr of the
University of Illinois' economics
department, flew into town yes-
terday to address a meeting of the
Michigan Actuarial Club.
Though the subject of his talk
was "I Don't Know Anything
About Actuarial Science, but ... ," 1
Prof. Mehr showed that he did
have some definite ideas about
the men who, among other things,
determine the premiums to be
paid on insurance policies. j
"ACTUARIES," he said, in the
slow drawl of a Philadelphian
raised in Alabama, "Actuaries are
in a dungeon, watching only
mathematics andenot keeping up
with economic developments."
After pointing out tha't in-
surance companies have been
using the same fundamental
policies for 200 years, Prof.
Mehr declared it was time for a
Specifically he urged the intro-
duction of a policy designed to
insure against old age, which
would pay nothing if the person
died before he was 65 years old,
but would furnish a steady income
for a policyholder after that age.
