An Open Letter IyC~ 4/1/K Fellow Employes of The Milwaukee Road: In the urgency and magnitude of our war work it is sometimes difficult to give our patrons the high standard of service and personal attention on which our good name is founded. Service is our entire stock in trade. We must zealously guard against any let-down that depre ciates it. Our obligations to each shipper and each traveler remain constant, even under the pressure of total war. In fulfilling these obligations we must never forget that in railroading the human element is even more important than the mechanical element Public opinion is the sum total of what each patron thinks of our personnel and facilities. Let's keep our friends and make new ones. Let's continue to make shipping on The Milwaukee Road a satisfaction and traveling on The Milwaukee Road a pleasure. In this way alone can we maintain our reputation for friendliness and efficiency. Such a reputation means much to The Mil waukee Road's future, and it's IN YOUR HANDS and mine. Trustee WAR JITTERS! Our booklet "War Jitters" is ad dressed to our employes but if you'd like a copy write Mr. P. R., The Milwaukee Road, 356 Union Station, Chicago 6, Ill.
