JI f'er u/ roof/ PLENTIFUL ELECTRIC POWER is the lifeblood of industry today. To help provide ample power for continuing industrial growth in the modern Southland, many new coal-burning power plants were completed in the latter part of 1953 along the lines of the Southern Railway System. Still others are now under way or planned for the immediate future. These new or enlarged power plants alone will consume a total of more than 13 million tons of coal annually. This is only one million tons less than all the coal we handled in 1953 - and more than three times the total coal tonnage originating on the Southern in that year. More coal to make more power to feed more industry! Powerful proof that big things are happening in the South today. "Look Ahead-Look South!" SOUTHERN RAILWAY SYSTEM WASHINGTON, D. C .
