Railway Problems Discussed by General Manager

Railway Problems Discussed by General Manager

At the invitation of the Dannevirke Chamber of Commerce, in co-operation with the Southern Hawke's Bay Provincial Executive of the Farmers' Union, Mr. H. H. Sterling, General Manager of the New Zealand Railways, delivered an interesting address on the subject of “The Railways, Their Users and Their Owners,” in the Concert Chamber of the Town Hall before a large and representative attendance of citizens and settlers from the surrounding districts. Mr. Sterling comprehensively reviewed the position, particularly from the aspects of developmental and community service.

He made a direct appeal to the people to support their railways and to co-operate with the Department in popularising them.

The address has been published in leaflet form by the N.Z. Farmers' Union, Southern Hawke's Bay Provincial Executive, thus giving those who were not present an opportunity of reading it and reflecting upon the wide range of services rendered by the railways and the vital part they play in the progress, development and prosperity of the community.
