Washington. It's been 'great
going" at the Capitol for the past
several days. The stupendous six
billion dollar .1942 income tax has
passed and received the President's
okay. That one little item alone
will dip well into the pockets of all
Well, well all be in the pluto

rather, we are already there. Any
single person who earns the mag
nificent sum of ?10 a week will
have to divvy up with Uncle Sam.
And any married person who
makes more than $750 and has no
little ones must do likewise. But
at that, most of us would rather
pay into an American ante now
than be wiped out by a Nazi blitz
later. It's a dealer's choice now,
but if we don't pay high stakes
today, there will be no choice at all

The right to govern ourselves
BRAVE AND DETERMINED Americans
left bloody footprints in the snow at Val
ley Forge, to give us the priceless right to run
our country as the majority of us think it
should be run.
Today, equally resolute and courageous
Americans are fighting to preserve that hard
won heritage for themselves and for their
children. They know that in the Axis nations
people are mere puppets bowing to the brutal
whims of fanatical dictators.
That's why Americans are fighting. And, as
they fight on to certain Victory, they are in
spired by an unshakable determination that
this government shall continue to be "of the
people, by the people, and for the people."
The Southern Railway System, because of its
strategic location, is playing a tremendously
vital role in the transportation of war materials
and fighting men. But it is doing more than
that. It is also helping to keep the wheels of
out national life rolling in defense of the home
front. It is grimly but willingly taking on bur
den after burden because it's a rich privilege
to serve the nation in times like these.
When private automobile travel began to be
curtailed by tire and gasoline rationing the
kind of travel that normally accounts for more
than four-fifths of all inter-city travel the
railroads took on the thankless job of provid
ing substitute transportation. That meant more
trains, more .cars per train, more locomotives,
crowded stations, and a thousand headaches!
But the job is being done on top of the major
task Of handling hundreds of thousands of
Uncle Sam's soldiers, sailors and marines.
When the oil shortage developed in the
eastern states, the railroads said that they could
move 200,000 barrels a day to meet the emer
gency. They are now moving more than
800,000 barrels a day. In the first eight months
of this year, the Southern Railway System alone
handled more than 19,000,000 barrels of oil to
the North and East.
These are simply examples of how one rail
road is doing its bit to protect our way of life;
our heritage of freedom; our right to govern
From this experience, a better Southern Rail
way System will emerge more efficient and
more useful to the people it serves than ever
before 'because, even during these trying
times, we are taking advantage of every oppor
tunity to improve our services, facilities and
methods; every opportunity to plan for a better
tomorrow when Americans will continue to
hold their heads high as free men, proud in the
knowledge that their children, too, will enjoy
the blessings inherent in a nation of self-goV"
That is worth fighting for!
