Was "Over There"
and he will tell you that American railroads are
the best in the world.
He saw the foe roads- in England and
France, the best in Europe- and in other Cn
tinen countries - and he knows.
The part railrods have played in the develop
ment of the United States is beyond measure.
;t American railroads have achieved high stand
ards of public service by far-sighted and corage-u
Ubt ous investment of capital, and by the coenstant
sy. striving of muanager and men for rewards for work
to well done.
We have the best railroads in the world - we
must continue to have the best.
But they must grow.
To the $20,00,000,000 now invested in our
railroads, there will have to be added in the next
fe years, to keep pace with the nation's buids,
billions more for additional tracks, stations and
terminals, ers and engines, electric power houss
la and trains, automatic signals, safety devices, the
l elimination of grade crossings- and for recon
struction and engineering economies that will re
S duce the cost of transportaetion.
To attract to the railroads in the future the in
S vestment finds of many thrifty citizens, the direct
ing genius of the most capable builders and man
S agers, and the skill and loyalty of the best work
men -- in competition with other industries bid
ding for capital, manafree ane d men - the railroad
industry must hold out fair rewards to capital, to
managers and to the men.
L1 Amer iean railroads will continuea to set world
standards and adequately serve the Nation's needs
(l.. if they continue to be built and operated on the
l'" American principle of rewards for work well done. '
