Freights Supplant Passentger Trains
"Every few moments the passenger
trains are switched onto a siding to
make way for the endless freight;
trains that go swishing by, carryin~g
thir millions of tons of supplies to
the soldiers and war workers conduct-
ing our big campaign., Freights have
the right of way in alcases and the
result is that passenger traffic is hope-
lessly tied up. Many tr'ains have been
taken off the schedules and the few
that are running never leave or arrive
(,A. tine. Qnie train announced to start
from Washington at 5:4,5waited until
7:30 before the locomotive was at-
tached and when it did leave was de-
layed so that it arr'ived in Baltimore,
a short distance away, after 9 o'clock.
The 12 coa.ches on this train were fill-
ed to overflowing five minutes after
the gates were opened. This was
caused by the necessity of running
several heavy freights over ahead of
the passenger train. 'The yard mast-
er had to attach two 'extra cars to,
one train I was travelling on, to care
fu)r the people wh~o jostled each other
in the mad rush fo seats.
Hotels (axed to ('apaty
"The hotes ae 4ammedl with the
thousands of visitprs wh are arriv-
ing in Washingtoni daily, and it is a
hopeless task to attempt to secure any
kind of lodging. I telegr'aphed for
accommodations mroe than a week be-
fore I arrilved in the city and when I
got there I had to wait from noon
until midnight. in order to get a little
cubby-hole r'oom for which I paid $10
a day. Ili these war tines all roads
lead to the coast and it seems that
most of them eventually lead to the
capital. The Army and Navy club is
crowded with visiting officers, many
of whom are French and English,.
