On Monday, March 1st, the railroad lines of the Southern Pacific Company, were returned
to their owners for operation. As a war measure they have been in charge of the government dur
ing the last two years and two months. The stockholders in that period had nothing to do
with the management.
In taking over the management of this property, the policy of the owners will be to give
as satisfactory service as lies in their power in return for the patronage given us; to seek the co
operation cf shippers and passengers and of the wholo people in having our service .reasonably
responsive to the public needs.
We have to ask the patient forbearance of the public during the readjustment period of
the next six months. It is true during these six months the Government continues the standard
return allowed the lines while under its control, based on the pre-war earnings. But this return
is subject to certain Legislative directions by congress that will affect operations during this period
which ends August 31st, iext. We expect, however, within this six months to mature plans for the
future. These plans had to be held in abeyance thus far because of uncortainty as to the Legis
lative conditions to accompany the return of the roads to their owners for operation, and these
conditions have been determined by Congress only within the last few days. We now have to
study what is before us in law and in fact and get our beariugs anew.
The Operating organization as it existed under Southern Pacific management ha3 been to
some extent disarranged during the period of federal control and operating practices have been
changed, but the benefit of any new practices that may have proved efficient in the public service
during the Government control period, will, of course, be retained.
We could r.ot purchase equipment after we entered the war because the Ccvsrnmont took
control and war financing occupied the field, while during the reit of the time i!ie' question of ade
quate credit had to wait for answer in Congressic nal action. On the other hand, the locomotives
and cars in service have been subjected to the most active use and new rolling stock has not
been renewed throughout the country in normal numbers for the increaso of normal traffic. The
burden of extaordinary war movements fell heavily upon all kinds of rolling Block, making it im
possible to shop the equipment at the proper tirr.o, and repair work was further delayed by
shortage during the larger part of the war period in both men and material.
The problem before us at once, therefore, is how to put to the best use the passenger train
cars and the freight cars that are in service, and how to put into good condition for service every
piece , of equipment to bo had. This problem is before every railroad. Abreast of this is the larg
er question whether the earnings under the new law, the "Transportation Act of 1920," will be
enough to establish the credit of the railroads at a point where they can provide themselves with
the facilities of ail kinds that they need to give the public proper service. We have the will
if only we can find the ways and means. These are not easy to find, for an assumed earning of
even 6 per cent, and no assurance of that, is not attractive to anyone having money to invest
when money is worth 7 or 8 per cent in the open market.
Hejice, the effect of the new act of Congress upon earnings and upon the eredit of the
railroads cannot be immediately determined. Thi3 act provides for a rato-making structure, under
which, during the next two years the railroads will be permitted to earn up to 512 Per c?rit an-r.!-al!y
on the value of the railroads as may be determined by the Interstate Commerce Commis
sion. The Commission has power at its discretion to increase th?so possible earnings to 6 per
cent, the added one-half of 1 per cent to be used only for improvements to the property.
No guarantee of any kind is given to any railroad, but half of any earnings over 6
per cent are to be taken by the Government to make loans to railroads that may need them for
improvements or to care for obligations falling due, or to obtain and lease equipment to the
carriers that cannot afford to buy it.
Obviously these elements in the situation will have to be considered in making our
plans. The Interstate Commerce Commission is the deciding body with respect to value of the
properties, as well as the rates which are to yield the 5y2 per cent return thereon, and much will
depend upon the vision and promptness of action with which that body accepts its great respon
sibilities. In the meantime, it is particularly desirable, in view of the shortage of equipment, that
every effort be made by shippers and the railway forces to continue heavy car loading and train
loading, and to lose no time in loading and unloading cars.
Believing that we will have the full co-operation of the people served by our lines in
dealing with the problems presented, it is due them that in thus aiding us they should know
what problems we have to meet. You can rest assured we are not idle with respect to them.
