CLEAR THE TRACK TO BETTER TIMES FOR tHi RAILROADS AND AMERICA • Since the low point of the depression, American railroads hare expended millions of dollars on new trains and new equipment- have made tremendous strides in the improvement of both passenger and freight service. During this same period, prices of the things which railroads buy have gone up about 40*. Taxes have increased about 25*, Wages have risen about 18%. Yet—in the face of these increases and of the large expenditures on equipment — the /ere/ of freight ratal ha* yoao down about JO* and paitongor fan* about 18*1 As a result, the margin between income and outgo is so thin that the railroads face a crisis—a crisis that is of vital concern to agriculture, industry, business and all of us. The railroad* mutt make more money if they are to provide the efficient, economical man transportation upon which our highly developed agriculture and widespread commerce are based . . . and if they are to continue to operate as self-supporting, lax pay. ing contributors to our national and local prosperity. Manufacturers and producer! in other lines ordinarily raise their selling prices to meet increased cost*. (Most of the things you buy now cost about 40% more than they did in 1932.) But the railroads are not at liberty to increase their rates except by authority of the Interstate Commerce Commission. Now the time has come when the railroads muit increase rates la order to meet the rising tide of operating costs. They have, therefore, submitted for the consideration of the Interstate Commerce Commission, a proposed increase of IS* in all freight rates, with certain exceptions for which fixed increases are provided. The proposed rate increases will not be a burden upon either agriculture or commerce. To yon, a* a consumer, it will mean an increase of /••« than 1% in the average wholesale price of commodities. Yet this increase in rates—which is the just due ofthe railroads—will help to insure their progreedveneft and future prosperity which are matters not only of national, but of weal concern. Remember, the railroad Is a home town industry. It employs local people, make* purchases locally, and pays taxes that contribute substantially to the support of your school* and other PObUo institution*.
