aent .Harrison: "Southern Rallwav
company has In Its service 1,768 men
or all ranks and all classes from gen-1
eral officer to blacksmith helper who
have exceeded twenty-five vears of
continuous service on the road. There
are Indeed thirty-four men who have
exceeded fifty years of such service
nlVA'8 aIso of lntert that triers'
are 235 negroes on the list. These men
are the best men the oompany carries
on its rolls, for they have proven
their loyalty and their fitness for thoir
several responsibilities in the hard
school of experience and by survival
of the strict dlsclplline which Is nec
essary ln the administration of a rail
road. To recognize their achievement
and to commemorate to their hon
orable record, the company has ar
ranged to award to each one of them
a medal which they can wear so lona?
as they livle and hand down as an
iri00ra t0 thelr families."
