Twenty-three years ago the second, and as it proved to be a successful, effort was made to organize a Pennsylvania Railroad Department of the Young Men's Christian Association of Philadelfor the betterment of railroad men along physical, intellectual, social and spiritual lines. The results show the wisdom of the move. Men of all grades in the service are vastly advanced along those lines; and the public as well as the Company have been the beneficiaries. The work of the Department has been carried on by men, women and youths in the employ of the Company, or dependent upon employes, encouraged and assisted by the corporate, executive and administrative officials both in their official and personal relato society. These years of persistent, consistent, honest endeavor have shown such a personal and civic advancement that it is deemed advisable that an epitome of the history of the Departbe compiled as an evidence that the work has not been in vain. There is a deep-rooted popular prejudice that a railroad corporation is soulless and cannot occupy a place in the moral and intellectual advancement of society by reason of the fact that it is in law a fictiperson. No greater error can exist in the mind of man than is embraced in that prejudice; any mind desiring to clear itself will by seeking truth find that whilst the legal definition will apply to the corporation per se, it does not apply to the administration of coraffairs, which is conducted by real, active, feeling, intelligent persons of the same flesh, blood, sinews, nerves and souls as are posby all other human beings, and that they do not deviate from the straight path any more, if as much, as other real persons in any other line of human endeavor. This compilation will show that the Pennsylvania Railroad Company and its employes do work in the direction of a better and higher civilization, and that the results of their work compare favorably with the work of any other class of people aimed to achieve the same desired results.
