Ask Any Doughboy Who Was 4 'Over There" and lie will tell you that American railroads arc the best in the world. He saw the foreign roads in England and France, the best in Europe and in ctUcr Con tinental countries and he knows. The part railroads have played in the develop ment of the United States is beyond men sure. American railroads have achieved high stand ards of public service by far .-drilled and courage ous investment of capital, and by the constant striving of managers and men for rewards for work well done. W'c have the best railroads in the world wc must continue to have the best. But they must grow. To the $20,000,000,000 now invested in our r.?i!ronds there will have to be added in the next few years, to keep pace with the nation's business, billions more for additional tracks, stations and terminals, cars and engines, electric power houses and trains, automatic signals, safety devices, the elimination of grade crossings and for recon struction and engineering economics that will re duce the cost of transportation. To attract to the railroads in the future the in vestment funds of many thrifty citizens, the direct ing genius of the most capable builders and man agers, and the skill and loyalty of the best work men in competition with other industries bid ding for Capital, managers and men the railroad industry must hold out fair rewards to capital, to managers and to the men. American railroads will continue to set world standards and adequately serve the Nation's needs if they continue to.be built and operated on the American principle of rewards for work well done.
