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.
