WE'RE IN A WAR; a fact that is being brought
home to us in many ways. No longer can we enjoy all the
privileges to which we ha ve become accustomed. Johnny
can't use the car. Mother can't bake so many cakes.
Place the blame squarely where it belongsin Berlin.
The shadow that has darkened so much of the world
could lengthen still farther; could bar our freedom of
speech, press and worship; yes, and our right to travel
when and where we choose.
What are we doing about it? Ask any Union Pacific
man. He and thousands of other American railroad
workers are exerting every effort to stop that creeping
shadow; transporting armament and munitions as fast
as our factories can turn them out . . . transporting
troops in ever-increasing numbers. It's a job that must
ue uone so we Americans may always
be free to go wherever we please,
unquestioned and without fear.
