, , maintenance program. They will be made from new

: ; This program is entered upon with a firm
belief in the prosperity of the Western states
and a confidence that the people in the terri
. tory served by the Union Pacific will co-operate
in maintaining the railroad at a point
of greatest effectiveness.
