That would be a recommendation to DISCONTINUE the stripes in
February, 1952.
My SP Freight Cars, Vol. 1, DOES say it correctly on page 20;
Mr. Clark edited the actual sentence in haste and thereby garbled it.

Mr. Thompson is too kind with the word "edited." I think "bungled"
would be more appropriate:-( And I typed it with the book open in

difficult it is to proof your own work.
