Think of a small brick house in a whole row of brick houses in a large city in Ohio or Illinois. Think of a large stone mansion on a Pennsylvania hillside, a place for old folks to go to when they’re left alone in the world. Think of hospitals in Indiana and Wisconsin, colleges in Virginia and Washington, insurance companies in New York, and Massachusetts and Minnesota. Think of a cross-section of American life. Now you’re getting warm. If ever there was a public property—in the sense of widespread ownership —it’s our American railroads. Here are the facts about a typical railroad—the Chesapeake and Ohio. 275,083 shares of its stock are owned by col leges, hospitals, churches, charitable institutions and insurance companies. 40,496 of its common stockholders own 50 shares or less. These represent approximately 70 per cent of the total common stockholders. These people live in every state of the union and in its territories. They come from nearly every walk of life, and include employees of the road, teachers, lawyers, business men, stenographers, farmers, men in the Army and Navy—people who live "just around the corner” from you. In some countries the people have not been enterprising enough to build and maintain their own railroads. And the government has had to do it for them. With us the citizen and not the state has been the force behind our railroads. We have preferred the progress that comes from free competitibn to the stagnation that accompanies political patronage and bureaucracy. This system has worked. In the face of the greatest emergency ever to strike this country, the railroads of America have proved more able than ever before to meet the task imposed on them. With consideration for their welfare in the future, they will meet post-war tasks in the same way. In short, the railroads could be in no better hands than in the hands of the American people. For they, in the long run, must be served. Richland Center The children of the Emanuel’s Re formed church w'ill give a Christmas program on Christmas night, Decem ber 25th, at 8 o’clock.
