The Milwaukee Road, for example, pays over Nine Million Dollars in Taxes each year in the twelve states it •ervei— (6.7c of every dollar received for its services last year) — thus helping other taxpayers provide educational and highway facilities, local government, etc. It pays, in normal times, about Eighty-four Million Dollars per year in Payrolls for about fifty thousand employee* who, with their families, are your fellow citizen* and spend this money in your community. It pays more than Thirty Million Dollars yearly for materials and supplies purchased from producers and manufacturers in its territory, to maintain and operate its property, thus giving employment to large numbers of workers in these other industries. Although The Milwaukee Road has paid no dividends in the last 13 years, it has paid out in that period a vast sum- over $1,500,000,000— for the purposes above mentioned. By advertising and by personal efforts it interests travelers and settlers in the scenic attractions, resources, and industrial and agricultural advantages of the regions served Under existing laws railroads are prevented from competing on an equal basis with commercial buses and trucks and water carriers. This is one of the factors that have forced the railroads to reduce their forces and payrolls and other expenditures, as well as their train service. Naturally the people in the towns served by the railroads are affected by theso retrenchments. The Milwaukee Road's passenger train service expense last year was greatly in excess of its passenger train earnings. But railroads are required to maintain passenger service, even at a loss, so that the public may have trains to ride on when weather is bad and highways are impassable A railroad, like any other large concern, can operate most economically when working to capacity. Expenses cannot be cut in proportion to decreases in business, for many trains must be run no matter how small th« load, and roadway and equipment must be kept in as safe and servkeabla condition when business is light as when it is heavy. This means that the greater the diversion of business to highway and waterway carriers, the more difficult becomes the pro£ lem of giving satisfactory service.
