NEWS ITEMS OF LOCAL 1NTERST
Rev. H. A. Walter announces
that he with his family will
leave for Falls City soon after
school closes to take charge of
the Free Methodist church at
that place. Mr. and Mrs. Walter

respect of all who know them.
They have always been found of
the, most honorable type of citi

Union Pacific to Talk to
The Union Pacific realizes that the good-will of
its patrons is its greatest asset. It also believes
that a successful railway is the greatest asset of
any region or community which it serves.
The Union Pacific wants its patrons to feel that
the-railway is intimately interested in their wel
fare, and that the road is built, equipped and
operated especially to serve their transportation
The railway, like any other business has its
problems, some of which are not always thorough
ly understood by the public. For that rtason, the
Union Pacific will present certain of these prob
lems from time to time, and endeavor to explain
them, using only such statistics as are readily
Some of the topics suggested are:
The Misunderstood Railroad Earning Guaranty.
New Eqipment and Capital Improvements for
the Union Pacific.
What the Union Pacific Pays in Taxes.
The Railroad and the Farm.
Preventing Accidents at Grade Crossingsv
Who Owns the Union Pacific?
Expediting the Movement of Freight CaiV
The Facts About Freight Rates.
Where the Union Pacific Dollar Goes..
Railroads Safe to Ride On, Unsafe to Walk On
It is planned to publish one of these short talks
in the form of an advertisement about the first of
each month in Newspapers along the Union
Pacific lines. It is hoped that this method will
tend to clarify Borne of the misconceptions about
railway operation, and that it will serve to inform
the public of the costructive things the Union
Constructive suggestions will be welcomed.
