Therriault & Darlington Wholesale Dealers Phone 232 PATEROS, WASHINGTON Until the Last Man is Home Count right now on Great Northern Railway to do its level best--better than that, if possible l--to get Northwest service men home from camps and separation. centers for Christmas. But, please do not count on miracles, for the nation's railways face today the worst passenger travel congestion they've ever had! You are entitled to know why train travel, particularly on Western lines, now is difficult and will coitinue to be so for at least 60 days. ..... ':- ....... + -IV The prmcpal reason IS the accelerated rate at whmh servme men simlllt[. returned to the United States. This month more than I million mi! being will be landed at Pacific and Atlantic ports. And, at least 90 per cent  ............ + them must and will be moved homeward by railway. There are two "rubs" in today's train travel picture. One is that railways have been called on to handle a vastly-increased volume of military traffic at a time when thousands of civilians, including students and teachers, plan to go home by train for the year-end holidays The other and most important is that there just isn't enough rail- way passenger equipment to meet both military and civilian demands. The railways tackled their job in World War II with one-third fewer passenger cars than they had in 1918. Construction of new passenger equipment by and for railways was not permitted after 1941. Great Northern has had five streamlined trains on order since 1943, but delivery cannot be made in time to relieve the present congestion. Nevertheless, demobilization transport must go ahead, and toward getting it done, railways are assigning three:fourths Of all sleeping car space to troop move- ments. In addition, Great Northern and other Western lines have with- drawn hundreds of sleepers, coaches and baggage'cars from regular service for special troop train operations. In a single day more than 0 special troop trains are being moved on Great Northern alone. These include trainloads of eastbound service men andunoccupied eqt0pment moving, west to pick up troops awaiting transportation, o It's going to be difficult to obtain train accommodations to and from almost i anywhere in the next several weeks. Leaving would-be passengers behind makes no one happy, and crowded conditions on trains are not conducive to comfort. Public transportation is Great Northern's business. During the travel congestion p.eriod, which already has begun, the railway will provide civilians the most effective service possible while we finish our war job--the job which won't be finished until the last man is home.
