The elder Stafford died in the

Letter Sent to the
Employes of "Q"
I have read the statement of
Mr. Howard E. Gates in the
morning World-Herald referring
to the letter issued to employes
bv President Hale Holden of the
Burlington Railroad. I do not
desire or intend to enter into a
discussion of the present situa
tion, but I feel the necessity for
a full understanding of the letter
This letter to employes was
written after full consideration
had been given to the pronounce
ment of the Railroad Labor
Board and careful deliberation
as to the need for some definite
statement by the Management of
the Burlington Railroad to the
employes whose seniority, Relief
Department membership and
Pension privileges would be af
fected. It was written in the
spirit of friendship and comrade
ship born of the harmonious re
lations and associations that have
always existed between the em
ployes of the C, B. & Q. Railroad
and the Officers, whose duties
and responsibilities to the Public
are so well defined and recog
The nresent situation was not

lable by the officers of the Rail
roads. The letter of President
Holden is not an ultimatum, but
a plain, friendly statement of
facts to employes who. having
been associated with the officers
of the C, B. & Q. Railroad for
rears in pleasant and friendlv ri-
lationship, are now considering
whether they will permanently
leave the service of the C, B.
& O. Railroad and narrifire the
benefits that have accumulated
during these years to themselves
and their families, and seek em
ployment elsewhere. Supina
tions to the contrary notwith
standing, there has always been
and is today a generous, friendly,
sympathetic c o m r adeship be
tween the emnlovps unri officer
of the Burlington Railroad that
Dnngs lamuies closer together
and in this srjirit our President
addressed us. Anv auccpstlon
or advice to employes to the con
trary is detrimental to their indi
vidual interests, the combined
interests of the employes and
officers of the C, B. & Q. Rail
road and the Public.
