FILL YOUR COAL BIN NOV ALEXANDER IGE & GOAL GO. 354 E. Monroe Street Phone 791 J 1 in bi mmWooo For all of us who hare boys in the armed forces, the two happiest words we can hear or read today are these -"Arrived Safely." We on the New York Central salute the men of the Merchant Marine who, day in and day out, in peril of bombs above, torpedoes and mines below, are so gallantly performing their mission of carrying your sons and daughters and ours overseas. We know how heavy is that responsibility. For in addition to the 16,834 employees of the Central now in the armed services, the sons and daughters of more than 9,500 other employees have gone to war! And we know how great that transportation task is. Because it is our job, as part of America's great transportation system, not only to help carry these millions of men and women from home to camp, and from camp to embarkation port-but to bring to the dock-side, on time, an average of 16,000 pounds of supplies and equipment for every soldier! Yet. America's transportation system has still another vital responsibility tha: of carrying essential civilian freight and essential civilian passengers, and . . . despite the fact that both passenger and freight volume are now double their 1939 level, that job is being done-thanks to the wholehearted cooperation of shippers, Army, Navy and Office of Defense Transportation. When you realize this double job is being done with limited additional equipment we believe you will see why occasionally you may not secure just the accommodations you desire on the particular train you had in mind, or even on the day most convenient to you- By travelling during the week instead of the week-end ... by cancelling reservations immediately, when your plans change, so someone else may take your place ... you, as a civilian will contribute to the full utilization of available accommodations and immeasurably aid America's transportation system in carrying out its assignment of primary supply line to a nation at war.
