  Of the 521 locomotives inspected, 355 head ends were opened.
        215 had the 3 x 3 wire mesh.
        107 had the Ai x 1  perforated plate.
        14 had the 2 ½ x 2 ½ wire mesh.
        11 had the , x 34 draftac wire mesh.
          8 had the 4 x 4 wire mesh.
  Of the 521 locomotives inspected, 166 were hot and the front ends were
not opened, the ash pans only being examined.
  You will note that of the total amount of the large type of engines
which numbered 454, but 39 defects were found, or 9 per cent, whereas,
of the 67 engines used for logging purposes, 18 defects were found, or
27 per cent. In view of these facts, I believe that time would be well
