THIS PAPER IS DESIGNED TO SHOW THE MANNER IN WHICH CARGO TON-MILES ARE REPORTED BY THE AIRLINE INDUSTRY AND THE GROWTH OF CARGO TRAFFIC DURING RECENT YEARS. IT COVERS PROCEDURES USED BY THE AIR CARRIERS TO REPORT PERIODICALLY TO THE CIVIL AERONAUTICS BOARD AND THE AIR TRANSPORT ASSOCIATION OF AMERICA. CAB AND ATA REPORTS ON AIR CARGO TRAFFIC ARE ALSO DISCUSSED. THE SIGNIFICANT INCREASE IN CARGO TON-MILES IS POINTED OUT BY CHARTS SHOWING THE GROWTH IN AIRLINE FREIGHT TRAFFIC FROM 1939 TO 1963 AND COMPARING THIS TRAFFIC WITH THAT OF OTHER MODES OF TRANSPORTATION. /AUTHOR/
