Many war marriages are going
tb pieces. They married in haste
mttA now are repenting ih leisure.
A correspondent faces us with
of these in the following let
“Is it worse for a young couple

Most of the Norfolk and Western’s earned dollaH come front the
industries, businesses and folks who operate and live in the com
munities along the railroad’s lines.
And most of these N. & W. dollars go beck into local circulation,
ringing the bell in your cash register every day—whether you are
• butcher, a baker or a candlestick maker.
i About $62.400,000—nearly half o< all the dollars the H. A W.
• took in last year — was paid to N. A W. employees in wages and sal
arias. Their dollars wets spent with local merchants, invested in
local real estate, deposited in local' banks, contributed to local
chmohss and charities, paid to 'iwi*t collectors.

directly with local busmen, industry, and agriculture. On the N.

from pencils to height cars, from coal to cross ties, horn hardware to
hams, ham steel to steak, from oil and paint to ballast and bricks,
and so on and so on.
These Norfolk and Western dollars are not a mere "shot in the

arm". They are a steady, well-rounded economic diet that helps to
promote the welfare and progress of the communities the railroad
aenres — a diet that helps to keep business busy for the butcher, the
