FEDERAL BOARD TO
PRESENT WAGES OF RAILROAD
WORKERS ARE TO CONTINUE
TO BE NO RATE R6ODUCTIOE
Rates of Carriage as Well as Wages
of Operatives Are Sought to be
Stabilized in the New Bill.
Washington.-Wages established by
the railroad administration during the
war would continue in effect until
Steptember 1, under the railroad re
organization bill, the conference re
port on which was presented In the
house and senate.
Under the wage provision, pay of
railroad workers would be stabilized
at the present levels for six months
after the rail properties are returned
to private control and operation. The
bill, as reported, also seeks to sta,
bilize rates for the same time, pro
viding that, prior to September 1, no
rates may be reduced unless approval
of the interostate commerce commis
sion is obtained.
The restriction on wage increases
was looked upon with special inter
est by members of Congress, railroad
officials and union loaders in view of
the recent demands of the more than
2,000,000 railroad workers for tn ad
vance in pay.
In the belief that a wage commis
sion would be empowered to take up
their demands, the fourteen railroadi
union heads have called a conforenc
to be held here to discuss the policy
to be adopted in dealing with such a
commission. To ascertain if the rail
road executives would agree to turn
Ing over the wage controversy to sucl
a commission. Director General Hinee
has requested a committee of railroad
officials to confer with him here.

The modern retailer's earnest ambi

control the costs of raw materials or the
cost of production but he can, and does,
modify the cost of distribution and his own
profits. He can select his merchandise
from sincere makers who have the same
high ideals as his own---the best interests
of the consumer.
