This is a copy of President Truman's May 24, 1946, radio address on the current railroad strike. Truman states that "The railroads must resume operation. In view of the extraordinary emergency which exists, as President of the United States I call upon the men who are now out on strike to return to their jobs and to operate our railroads." Accompanying the speech is a letter from F.G. Gurley, President of the Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe Railway Company. Gurley's letter addresses the need for negotiations but also reminds employees that strikes damage the nations needs and jeopardize the public welfare.
