A railroad's roadbed has a lot to do
with travel comfort. A well-built roadbed
does away with annoying, sleep-disturbing
bumps .. . like a boat breasting a choppy
sea. It gives you "smooth sailing."
The kind of gravel used for roadbed bal
last is an important factor. Union Pacific
uses a special, sturdy type of crushed
granite which stands up particularly well
under wartime's heavily loaded freight
and passenger trains. Then, too, it acts as a
"cushion," resulting in more comfortable rid
ing and less wear on locomotives and cars.
Thus, even the ballast used on the rail
road's roadbed plays its part in efficient,
'round-the-clock transportation of troops
and essential battle-line freight over
Union Pacific's Strategic Middle Route,
uniting the East with the Pacific Coast.

Future "smooth sailing” over life's high
way can be assured by holding tight to
the war bonds we now have . . . and, as
an extra measure of economic protection,
buying as many more as we can pos

are my versions and opinions ex
pressed §
Hot, tired, and some
what a little frightened, I
like the many who were
in the same shipment, stepped pre
cariously, one by one, on the ship.
We could not see much of the
ship while boarding, yet 1 knew for
the first time in my life, the power
and greatness of such a mass of
steel. We were instructed to take
our places, which meant, staying in
our bunks until we left port. That
we did most eagerly. With no
thought of danger, come what may
we only wanted to take off our
packs, and rest. I regretted at that
moment, and many times after all
the unnecessary articles and nick,
nacks which I so cautiously slipped
in my bag. Every man had to car
ry all of his own equipment, and be
lieve me the American Army gives
you plenty.
Some of the know-it_al!-soldiers
told me that we would not leave
port until after darkness What a
story that turned out to be. A few
hours after we were on board, the
ship slowly moved out of the har
bor. This ship did not wait for
darkness. It was at that moment
I fully realized how great a Country
I was fortunate enough to live in
Had I not so many times read a
bout the sinking of our ships; had
I not read daily, the great destruc.
tion caused by the German submar
ine. I knew that America did not
unnecessarily risk the lives of her
soldiers. I ceased being afraid.
Looking back at the shores for a
long, last look, 1 felt a little sad,
yet I was proud of the fact that I
was one of the millions of soldiers
who was deemed fit enough to help
defend the freedom of America,
and th freedom of the oppressed
nations which were then enslaved
by a group of killers. I thought
of the wives and children that liv
ed in Poland, France, China, Aus
tria. Belgium, Ethiopia, and all the
countries which at i-»at time were
under the power of the Axis. I
could only thank God that the en_
emy was not pouring their shells
into the outskirts of Omaha. We
can say now that it can’t happen,
but had not our great leaders had
the foresight to see what was to
come, we cannot say what could
have happened and what could not
have happened, because we do not
know We must thank God that it
did not happen.
Unless one has had the opportun
ity to sail on a large body of water,
they wil find it so hard to visualize
how immense and powerful a large
body of water can be. As far as
you can see to the right, there is
water; as far as you can see to the
left, there is water; All you can see
is water. White foamy water; deep
dreary and cold water. When
I thought of Columbus sailing to
the Americas in a hundred and fif
ty foot vessel, I know now why the
sailors on his ship wanted to turn
back towards home
W e were served two meals a day.
which was plenty, and some of the
best meals I have ever tasted were
given to us on that ship. It was
one time in my life I didn’t make a
pig of myself. Not because I didn’t
want too, but because I was sea
sick most of the way over. That
rolling, rumbling water kept me
sick In the final stages of our
trip across, the wind was high, and
the sea was rough Waves of
salty, cold water dashed over the
deck. I was so sick I just layed
in my bunk and prayed Strange
how a great many men turn to <!od
when the going gets a little rough
Time and many miles somehow
drifted by. Music, a show, bingo

while. helped to pass the days away
All the way I felt restless tired and
sick As for the sailors, they look
ed to be in the best of health I
guess one must get used to it, but
that is the trouble.getting used
to it:*
I thought of every good and bad
thing I have ever done in my life
One thinks of one's family and lov
ed ones he has left behind. You
feel kuilty because there is no way
you can let them know you are
safe. You feel sorry for them, but
what can you do? It is much hard
er on the ones you left behind than
it is on the one who is making the
trip America, and its great Navy
has made the crossing one of al_
most certain safety now, but not
without the cost of those brave
men’s lives which made the safety
of today possible. I can only say.
“thanks fellow's”, and I only hope
that I too can do something worth
One bright morning, early after
brakfat, someone shouted, “Land!” [
I ran hurriedly up the steps, be
cause I couldn’t believe it was true.
It was there-LAND, and I could
see real live humans. I forgot be
ing restless I forgot being lone,
ly I forgot about my being tired
That feeling was completely gone
with the sight of land. We had
reached our destination: India a
trip that took us half way around
the world.
And then “MAIL CALL”. How
the mail got there so fast I do not
know. It was there, and at that
moment, it was all that mattered.
1 received twenty-six letters and
many received more than I. It
was another American miracle
What other country does so much
for their soldiers just to give them
comfort and peace of mind? To
those faithful ones who continued
to write without receiving: “God
Bless them all.” Words cannot ex
press the comfort those letters
brought to me and to all the others
For a short while most of the fel
lows thought they were sitting in
their parlors at home, w ithout a
worry in the world.
I did not know this was only the
beginning I felt that my troubles
were over. War is not easy for
anybody. It takes in all of us; the
large and the small, the rick and
I the poor, the black and the white.
All for one common cause FREE.
DOM Life is dear, but more than
life is at stake now. more than
you or i. All of us love the Amer
ican way of life. To us it is sacro
sanct. and it must be preserved not
only for us, but for all humans on
the face of this earth, who believe
that all men are created equal
There are those who would destroy
this way of life if it were possible
but they are slowly being Strang
led out of existence. It may take
many a sea-sick soldier, sailor or
marine to change their minds, but
they will.yess, they will!

icles from Sargeant Lewis).
Colonies Still to be
(continued from page 1)
existence depends upon a meaning
ful revision of the “Mandate Sys
tem" do not have a voice inside
the conference.
“We seek no aggrandizement ter
ritorial or other.”
That was opening statement of
the Atlantic Charter, and is the bas
is of the discussion of Trustee
In the Atlantic Charter, by prom
ising not to add to their territories
and to heed the “freely expressed
wishes of the people concerned” the
governments of Great Britain and
the United States repeated a prom,
ise made in World War 1 .
At the end of the last war the
victorious nations felt that they
could not violate that promise, but
on the other hand, they were not
disposed to hand colonies back to
the defeated nations
i tie .Mnitdiiie Concept
The got around the .proolem of
creating under the covenant of the
League of Nations, a new concept
...the concept of “mandates'’.
Instead of being handed over to
the victors, in the immemorial tra.
dition of war. the Colonial lands of
Germany and the possessions of
Turkey were “mandates” to the vic
tors. A few, ike Syria, Iraq and
Palestine were scheduled for inde
pendence in the not-too-distant fu
ture (Syria and Iraq got theirs
after the fall of France, the manda,
tory power) .
Lesser territories were put in
charge of, or “mandated to” various
of the victors, including Britain,
Franc", South Africa, Australia.
New Zealand and Japan Those
nations gradually included the man
dates in their Colonial systems, ex.
cept that they submitted annual re
ports to the League of Nations
Great Britain, ong famous for her
Colonial System, is arguing vehem
ently for the continuation of the
mandate system which has given her
complete power over the natives of
the areas under her jurisdiction.
Everyone is making very certain
that no nation except the vanish
ed will lose any colonies or former
mandates without its permission
And permission is considered un
likely. The Frenchi for example,
will retain Indo-China, and the Brit,
ish Palestine.
The conflict cannot be complete,
ly resolved here at San Francisco,
because it has been declared by all
parties that no specific territories
will be discussed here. That Is a
matter for the Peace Cpnference
The hope here is to work out a
framwork under which territories
involved in the Peace Conference
can be handled. Thus far the Uni
ted States, Britain, Australia and
France have developed such propo
sals to be added to the World Or
ganization Charter. Russia and
China have bene involved in the dis
cussions. but have thus far set for
th no official plan
Molotovj speaking for the Soviet
delegation, stated at a press con.
ference Monday, May 7—“The Sov
iet delegation realizes that from the
viewpoint of the interests of inter
national security we must first of
all see to it that dependent countr
ies are enabled as soon as possible
to take the path of national inde
pendence. This should be promot.
ed by a special organization of the
United Nations which must act with
a View to expediting the realization
of the principles of equality and self
determination of nations. The Sov
iet delegation will take an active
part in the consideration of this
I problem in its entirety ”
American lnq>o*:ils
Probably the most important sec
tion of the American suggestions to
the Colonials is the right to petition
the World Organization.
The IT. S. proposals state that
the trusteeship commission should
have the right to send investigators
to non-strategic areas and that pet
itions regarding grievances may be
addressed to it The British prov
ide only for "reports" by the trus_
tee powers Neither proposal says
that anything can be done if the
territory is not well administered
It is ironical that the British
spokesman on the Colonial issue
Lord Cranborne, has pictured the
United Kingdom as the all wise
j solicitous shepherd and champion of
: peoples swelling in the Colonies.
French View point
There was considerable question
after the last war as to the legal
citizenship of mandated peoples
They were awarded a raiher amor
phous international status. This
time the French have indicated that
they are willing to grant full Fren.
ch citizenship to the people of their
truteeship areas and colonies
This would achieve a double ob
jective. It would bind those peo
ple closer to France, and it would
also grant them the civil rights that
citizenship implies. No such guar
antees are available in me general
trusteeship proposals
South Africa .
Probably the most blatant af
front to democracy was the declar_
ation by the Union of South Africa,
wihch announced that it will ask
! the later Peace Conference to incor
porate the Territory of Southwest
Africa within the Union itself
Southwest Africa, a German ter
ritory before the last war. was man
dated to the Union of South Africa
E>espite South Africa's reputation as
the cradle of "white supremacy"
her petition to the UNCIO. said:—
“For twenty_five years, the Union
of South Africa has governed and
administered the territory as an in
tegral part of its own territory and
has promoted to the utmost in ma
terial and moral well-being and the
social progress of the inhabitants
“The Union has introduced a pro
gressive policy of native adniinis_
tration. including a system of local
government through native council"
giving the natives a voice in the
management of their own affairs
and under Union administration na
tive reserves have reached a high
state of economic development

arity in composition of the native
peoples of southwest Africa the na

The matter of the complete in
corporation within the Union will
not be discussed here, but it is a
first hint of things to come when
the Peace is written
Led by the three American Negro
consultants, a number of groups
genuinely interested in world peace
have been agitating for the rights
of these mandated territories
These groups want to know how
proper administration of the territ
ories will be insured, how they can
work towards self-government or
ever be assured of getting it, and
whether they can have a voice in
their own political or economic life
At present, there are no answers
to these questions.
