BINDER CANDIDATE FOR MAYOR CITY OF MOUNT PULASKI ELECTION TUESDAY, APRIL IS YOUR VOTE WILL BE APPRECIATED Dp=RootJ in tl00 People's 4 eoe eeo eeeee eeeeeeeeeeeeee ee eeeeeee@ America confeonts an uncertain future, wherein trials d* emergencies undoubtedly abide. To steady ourselves we must have faiLh faith in our own works, faith also in those with whom and for whom we labor. The Illinois Central has that faith. It know its own sgl experience and ability. It knows, too, that its roots as an institution ape anchored deep in the needs of all the people. So rooted, it asks that we its friends may picture it to others: Not as a vast aggregation of capital totaling 750 million dol- lars; but rather as the combined savings of men and women, some of whom may be living just across our street. Not as the. employer of 50,000 men and women, most of them far away; but rather as the livelihood of some people we know, who trade at our store and send their children to the same school we do. Not as the payer of taxes totaling ten million dollars a year; but rather as a helper to carry the burden of governmental support to which we all contrJbute. Not as the producer ot eleven billion ton-miles of freight transportation annually; but rather as the carrier that takes our products to market and brings us fuel, clothing and food. Not as the producer of 640 million miles of passenger trans- portation a year; but rather as the carrier that takes us and our neighbors where we want to go and brings us all safely home. Not as anything mysterious at all; but rather as a local busl- a ood citizen and, above all, a good neighbor. HERBERT LENZ Lincoln's Leading Optometrist and Manufacturing 0ptidan Ill. Phone 1062
