QHOWTHG DQNNAQ§_QN BILg§ OF LADING. null
Some years ago we sent out instructions to govern
the billing of the weight of dunnage on bills of lading. The
failure of many of our shipping departments to handle correctly
indicates the necessity for renewing these instructions,
The weight of all dunnage, which includes temporary
blocking, flooring or lining, racks, standards, strips, stakes
or similar bracing, dunnage or supports, not constituting a
part of the oar, when required to protect and make carload
freight secure for shipment, should be shown separately on
bills of lading. Even in the case of agreement weights the
agreed weight should not include the weight of the dunnage
but both should be shown separately,
There is an allowance for dunnage in open cars
but none for closed cars, However, due to storage in transit
and other features too detailed to outline, it is highly
essential that these instructions be followed ln all cases
of carload shipments.
Please see to lt that all concerned are fully
informed and kindly acknowledge receipt,

We call your attention to the reverse side
of Repairs Invoice Form B,H, 779 which shows the proper
bill of lading description to be used on all less than car-
load or less than truckload shipments,
It ls essential that these descriptions be
used in order to enjoy the lowest applicable freight rates;
furthermore, It 1s a legal requirement that shipments be
described according to tariff terms and these are the
descriptions as prescribed in the tariffs,
Changes in employees handling these matters °
have resulted in failure of many shipping departments to
follow these instructions. Many use only the general term
of "Tractor Parts" or "Implement Parts" without the further
modification, whereas both should be shown,
There are a few new items to be added to this
list and we are planning to revise it in the near future. Any
suggestions or questions you may have will be appreciated,
Where particular parts are not shown on the
reverse side of Form B,H. 779 such parts should be billed as
"1mplement" or"tractor parts" (as the case may be)"NOIBN"
(meaning not otherwlse indexed by name) "lron or steefletc.
and show complete information as to how packed, 1,e, bundles,
boxes, crates or loose, and ln case of dlsks,etc. show whether
edges are fully or partially protected,
Will you please instruct all concerned regarding
this important feature as much money is lost due to improper ,
billing of freight shipments,

Dear Sir:
You no doubt Know by this time that a new schedule has
been prepared covering the operation for tne coal mines, the
schedule having been revised as of May 20, l938.
As the production of coal has been considerably reduced
compared to tne last estimate, as soon as you can go over the
new figures will you please send us a revised estimated cost of
producing coal for the balance of the fiscal year, that is to
October Bl, 1938.
We also ask yon to prepare a new estimate of cash re-
ceipts and disbursements, as the figures we now have will, of
course, be way out of line.
Very truly yours,
WISCONSIN STEEL COMPANY _

Dear Sir:
This is in reply to your letter of July 15 in which
you state you believe the Board of Education will be willing
to pay a reasonable amount of rent on our school buildings
including any improvements but not including any repairs and
maintenance expense, and that if they do pay us rental it .
will be approximately 3% of the present valuation.
This is to advise you that the present valuation for
our school buildings is as follows: ‘
V White School Building ...... $127,500
Colored " “ ...... 22,500
T o t a l ...... $150,000
Of course with the atablishment of a four year High
School in Cumberland, Kentucky, there will be a considerable
reduction in the number of students at Benham. This should _
result in a decided decrease in expenses, and we would like
to have you get together with Mr. Dotson and figure out just
what the reduction in the number of pupils will mean to us
in the way of a saving in expense.
Please let me have this statement as soon as you can.
Very truly yours,

1 Some of the railroads are cancelling free pickups and
delivery on less than cnrload freight and this will serve to notify you
of this important change which is now scheduled to become effective on
August 15,
Effective on the same date, provision is made in the new '
tariffs for thegzerformance of the pickup or delivery service on basis of
the present station—to—station rates, olus additional amounts ranging from
U cents to lO cents per lOO pounds, and the minimum charges for pickup and
delivery service will be the pickup and delivery rate for lOO Lbs,
At Chicago, St, Louis, Detroit, Cleveland, Buffalo, Pitts·
burgh, New York, Boston and certain of the other larger centers the charge
for either pickup or delivery service is lO cents per lOC Lbs., while at the
smaller communities the charges range as low as U cents per lOO Lbs,
Only a few railroads are cancelling the present arrangement,
but among them are some important lines and we are listing them all for your
convenience, as follows:
Aroostook Valley Railroad Company
Bangor and Aroostook Railroad Company
Belfast and Moosenead Lake Railroad Company
I Boston and Albany Railroad
Boston and Maine Railroad
Canadian Pacific Railway Company (New England Lines)
Central Vermont Ry, (except New London, Norwich & Willimantic, Conn,)
Chicago Junction Railway
Chicago, Kalamazoo and Saginaw Railway Company
Cincinnati Northern Railroad Company, The
Cleveland, Cincinnati, Chicago & St, Louis Railway Co,The
Cooperstown and Charlotte Valley Railroai Company, The

 _ P
-2.
Delaware and Eidson Railroad Corporation, The
Indiana Harbor Belt Railroad Company
Louisville & Jeffersonville Bridge and Railroad Company
Maine Central Railroad Company
Michigan Central Railroad Company, The
Montpelier and Wells River Railroad
New York Central Railroad Company, The
Pittsburgh and Lake Erie Railroad Company, The
Rutland Railroad Company
Springfield Trrminal Railway Company (Vermont)
St, Johnsbury & Lake Champlain Railroad Company, The
» Suncook Valley Railroad
West Shore Railroad
This has the effect of restoring the old situation of
delivering LCL freight to the carrier's freight station in so far as
NIB &`OOVe roads are concerned; however, you have the option of allowing
these carriers to perform this service if the charge therefor is cheaper
p than any other arrangement you can make, You should route via carriers
other than those above shown if the point is served by a competitive
carrier and thus obtain benefit of free pickup and delivery,
Because of the lack of uniformity in these charges, we
ask that you take up with the agents of the above roads wherever you are
affected and Fetermine the charge in your particular case,
There are two possible developments that may take place:
(a) the Interstate Commerce Commission may svspend this tariff`before it
goes into effrct and (b) other railroads may take similar action and
cancel these iree services. In either event we will advise you further,
