To The Public
Men employed in our mechanical and car departments
have been on strike since July 1st against the decision of
the United States Railroad Labor Board. The officers and
loyal employes qf this company are doing all in their power
to keep trains operating. If we can have that protection
for life and property which the law guarantees, we will
succeed. The strikers and their sympathizers, on the
other hand, are doing their best, through a campaign of
lawlessness, intimidation and terrorism, to prevent our
operating trains. The welfare and prosperity of the com
munities we serve depends upon who wins. The law will
be enforced if the public demands it. If the law is en
forced, the railway can and will continue to operate trains
and give that service so vitally necessary if crops are to
be moved and producers and consumers alike spared the
suffering and financial loss involved in a tie-up of the trans
Demand That The
Law be Enforced!
