Employees of Commission May Get Railroad Passes To Go Berry-Picking
Alaska Railroad Record
July 30, 1918

Employees of the Alaskan Engineering Commission desiring to visit places along the line of the Government railroad for the purpose of picking wild currants or wild berries may obtain passes for such trips by applying to the heads of the respective departments.  Issuance of these special passes has been authorized by William Gerig, engineer of Maintenance of way.

This special regulation, which is for the purpose of encouraging the picking of currants and berries, temporarily does away with the restrictions limiting an employee to only one pass a month and temporarily suspends the enforcement of the rule requiring three months' service with the Commission on the part of an employee before according him the privilege of free transportation.
