A Land of rich soil, of thriv ing towns, of livable homes that offer cheerful hospi tality.., land of deep winter snows and warm summer suns, Nebraska is typical of the midwestern section of Your America. The state is one of the nation's leading stock raising areas. It is famous for dairy products. Corn, grain, hay and sugar beets grow in abundance. Industrial activity has rapidly developed. Nebraska is justly proud of its sound eco nomic condition, its "pay-as-you-go" pol icy. Its citizens are straight-thinking people who cling to the fundamental belief that the best way to achieve a comfortable living is to work for it. THE PROGRESSI/V UNION PACIFIC RAILROAD Nebraska's largest city, Omaha, is the head quarters of the Union Pacific Railroad, the "strategic middle route" uniting the state with the East and the Pacific Coast. Nebraska and Union Pacific have one com mon goal; to speed victory and keep open the doors of opportunity so that courage, hard work, initiative and enterprise may reap their just reward. * Listen to "YOUR AMERICA" -Mutual network-every Sunday afternoon, 4 pm, E.
