Cridland will terminate his career Saturday with retirement. Cridland started with the railroad as a station helper at Ochelata, Okla., June 16, 1915.

He came to Galesburg In 1928 as traveling freight auditor and was assigned as agent in 1948. George Cridland Winds Up 48 Years With Santa Fe By JOHN ZAKARIAN George A. Cridland's wish to see a new Santa Fe Railway station built in Galesburg before his retirement as agent here, is an impossibility. Cridland retires Saturday, 13 days prior to a final hearing by the Illinois Commerce Commission on the future of the proposed $157,000 structure at Cedar Street. As the Santa Fe's highest official in Galesburg, Cridland has supported the construction of a new station even if it meant the closing of Cedar .Street to vehicle traffic. "I wish I could see this modern station replacing the antiquated one, before my retirement," he said Thursday. Railroad Veteran uninterrupted. By 1920 he was a traveling freight auditor at Emporia, Kan., later moving to Hutchison, Kan., in the same position and to Galesburg on Oct. 31, 1928. He was assigned as Santa Fe agent in Galesburg May 15, 1948, continuing in that capacity until now.

In Cridland's opinion railroads, are "still the backbone of the 1 4 nation' 1 regardless of the revolutionized transportation industry. "Railroads have made great strides and improved services to maintain their, position as the most important transportation medium," he asserted. Hired As Station Helper Cridland was born July 26, 1896, at Ishpeming, Mich., beyond the fringes of Santa Fe territory. By his 19th birthday he was in Ochelata, Okla., where the Santa Fe hired him as a station helper. It took Cridland only 13 months to win promotion to agent at Fiat, Kan., and in 1917 he was appointed an operator of the carrier's South Kansas Division. From there he went to Caney, Kan., as cashier, back to agent in Ochelata, agent at Radley, Kan., and to relief agent of the Southern Kansas Division, Except for a 6-month hitch in the Army in 1918, Cridland's career with the Santa Fe has been tired from the line Thursday after 37 years service. Ray began his career as a brakeman on Aug. 27, 1926, and on June 11, 1942, was promoted to conductor, a position he held until his retirement. He was born in Astoria.
