During the recent war, the train did not operate.
The train will arrive in Memphis at 8 Sunday night and remain there about 30 minutes.
A car of exhibits will accompany the all-Pullman train and will be opened along the route for inspection by citizens of the sections visited.
Stops will be made at St. Louis, Kansas City, Topeka, Denver, Salt Lake City, Sun Valley, Idaho, Bonneville Dam in Oregon, Portland, Ore.; Seattle, Wash.; Vancouver, B.C.; Victoria, B.C.; Kamloops, B.C.; Revelstoke, B.C.; Lake Louise B.C.; Banff, B.C.; Moose Jaw, Sask.; Winnipeg, Manitoba; back into St. Paul, Chicago, Memphis and Jackson. The group will return July 25.
Mr. Murphree thrice elected lieutenant governor and twice elevated to the governorship on the death of occupants of the office, said the trip is to "get away from business cares, financial worries, politics and all those things."
"The 1948 train will be no different in this regard." he said. "Despite the fact that this is a presidential campaign year and the the wide differences of political opinion all over the county, so far as our group is concerned, we are not talking nor worrying about what is going on along this line."
