MILWAUKEE BEER | Passenger* in the smoking compartment on my train were arguing about why railroad business is picking up. ^ A factory owner said it was because of this new Free pick-up-and-delivery of less than carload freight. This is door-to-door service with no extra charge added to the freight bill. A traveling salesman said it was because so many passenger and freight trains now run on faster schedules. • There was a school principal in the group and he said it was because train travel is so much cheaper for passengers. He said passenger fares are at the lowest point in history, withsubstantial reductions if you buy a round-trip ticket—and no more surcharge for riding in sleeping can. ^ One man, a farmer, said he liked something he could depend oo, that's why he was traveling by train. • Another man, a newspaper reporter, said people were in favor of railroad travel because it is by far the safest. He quoted a lot of statistics from a book called,"Live and LetLive." • A banker we all know by name said railroad tax pay- mentsmeana lotin thisstate. • Wear cproudofrailroad arhie ye- ments, appreciate the public's good will and increased patronage, and pledge continued progress* Mrs. Art Schissel spent last week visiting Art's parents In Minneapolis.
