Governor Clyde Reed of Topeka, Kansas, writes to executives of railroad companies operating in Kansas to discourage them from using foreign labor, especially Mexicans, during a period of high unemployment. The Governor quotes a representative from the Hoover administration who requests that preference be given to American labor in all cases and that the companies return all Mexican labor to Mexico. The six railroad companies include the Atchison, Topeka & Santa Fe; the Chicago, Rock Island & Pacific; the Missouri Pacific; the Missouri, Kansas & Texas; the St. Louis, San Francisco; and the Union Pacific.
