L&D PREVENTION: HOW SANTA FE WENT FROM WORSE TO BETTER TO VERY, VERY GOOD

As recently as three years ago, Santa Fe's ratio of payout to revenue stood at 1.88. Dollar payout was at all-time high of $13 million. Then in 1971 the ratio was pushed down to 1.68 and payout dropped by about a half-million dollars. In 1972, the ratio dipped to 1.53, lowest since the early 1960's and payout dropped by about $200,000. In January 1973, the ratio dropped all the way down to 1.28. In short, Santa Fe seems to be well on its way to reaching the goal now set for L&D prevention, which is to slice the ratio all the way to an even 1.00 by mid-1976.
