At a time when all America is rejoicing
over final Victory, it isn't easy to sound a
somber note. But the effects of years of
war cannot be erased overnight. The re
turn to norma conditions will take place
gradually step by step.
So it is with the railroads . . . with Union
Pacific. Millions of men and women in
service have yet to be returned to their
homes. And, unfortunately, there will be
others whose destination will be a hospital
or rehabilitation center. Because Union
Pacific is a transcontinental railroad, unit
ing the East with the West Coast, a large
share of this job will fall on our shoulders.
You want these men and women to be re
turned home with utmost speed and so
do we but at best it will take months
and the use of a large part of our passen
For this reason we ask the civilian public
not to expect an immediate betterment
in the transportation situation. For the
railroads, as for industry generally, there
must be a period of reconversion.
So we say please be patient. Normal
peacetime operation will be resumed as
quickly as possible and, as in the past,
the progressive Union Pacific will provide
unexcelled facilities and service.
