They say they are seeking only changes in working con; . Jitions—NOT n wage increase. , More Money For Less Work But what kind of rules «re being •askcil fur? Twenty-eight of them would compel railroads to pay more money for the sumc, or less work; 7 would require additional and unnecessary men to do the same irorfr; the rest would tiring about changes in operating practices at increased cost. For Instance: The Union leaders demand nddilioiml train and engine crews on Die;;el-pow- ercd trains—one full crew for every power unit in the locomotive. A freight train hauled by a -1-unit Diesel would have io carry 4 engineers, 4 firemen, 4 conductors, and at least 8 brnkemen, or a lolal of 20 men instead ot 5. "Made Work"—Sheer Waste The Union leaders demand that full- lenRtti freight trains lie cut lo about bnlf their length, even though such trains are most efficient for low-cost service lo you. This rule would call for iwice as many locomotives, would double the number of trains, and make accidents more likely. Additional equipment, yards, and other facilities required to take care of these short trains would cost hundreds of millions. What the Union leaders really want is lo make more jobs. The Union lenders demand that when n crew in one class of service perform incidental service of another class, they will l>e paid not less than n day's pay for each class, oven though all scrvvce is performed as i\ part of the same day's work. The crew t':oit!d gel ol Icosi IILO days' pay for one day's work. The Union leaders demand that I ho present basic day for passenger con- ductors and trainmen ho reduced from 150 lo 100 mile;?, which would have the effect of increasing Iheir pay 50%. Such a run often takes only two or tlirce hours'. You Can't Afford This Waste Demands like these arc against the interests of the whole American people, who depend on railroad service for nearly everything they cut, wear and use. These rules would cost A BILLION noi.- I.AHS annually—a gigantic waste which neither the railroads nor the country can afford. Railroad workers are good citizens and good employes, with pride in their calling. Their record during the war was outstanding. \Vc do not believe they fully understand the "featherbed" rule.s which the Union leaders are demanding. We, do not believe they understand the harmful results which these rules would have lo the railroad industry, to the millions of men and women dependent on railroads for their livelihood, and to the shipping and consuming public. The grent strength of America is in production—an honest day's work for an honest day's pay. For only through greater production can we hope to stop the steady upward surge of living costs. Surely, if ever there was a time in our history when we needed to it'orft; not waste, this is it. 105 \VKST AllAMS S T II K U T 3, I 1.1,1 M) I S Wo niv publishing this nnd other advertisements to talk with you ut first hand about matters which are important lo everybody.
