Trade Group Sees Indication
Congress May Show More
By the Associated Press.
The Chamber of Commerce of the
United States said yesterday it saw
indications that the new Congress
might break away from "the previous
disposition of the lawmakers to await
the 'green light’ from the White
Saying there was "an apparent
wide divergence of opinion” between
the President and congressional lead
ers over the need for a constitutional
amendment broadening the Govern
ment's power to regulate business, the
chamber added:
"What this portends does not yet
The business organization asserted
that “ 'must' and 'emergency' will
very likely be less frequently heard
as descriptive of legislative proposals
and projects."

Noting that the number of pro
posals bobbing up in Congress "bids
fair to break all records,” the cham
ber continued:
“This fecundity might be inter
preted as a symptom of a resurgent
' legislative initiative rather than a
continuation of the* previous disposi

from the White House and then going
full speed ahead.
"Then again it may not. Events
alone can tell. • * * in the opening
of the new Congress it seems clearly
indicated that if the views of the
majority leadership • • • are of in
fluence t * * we will be hearing 'de
liberation' and 'debate' much more
frequently than 'rush' and 'jam.' ”
Business Outlook Discussed.
Discussing the business outlook In
relation to economic regulation, the
chamber said that "at present there
seems a disagreement among the
doctors as to just what the patient
needs, although they most all voci
ferously assert he needs something to
hold in check too rapid a con

the wilderness suggesting that what
he needs is to be let alone, and let

The chamber also issued a com
mittee report on the Robinson-Pat
man anti-price discriminating law. It
suggested suspension of the law's
provision authorizing suits for three
times the damages claimed as a re

The Government moved definitely
closer yesterday to an early decision
by the Supreme Court on the broad
question of Federal loans to munici
palities trying to set up their own
power systems in competition with
private utilities.
The Dstrict of Columbia Court of
Appeals decided to hear arguments

Special Assistant Attorney General
John W. Scott and Jerome Frank of

ground that "great public interest”
was involved.
The utilities are trying to block
municipal plants built with Federal
money on the ground that States’
rights are violated, and that such con

Courting Cat-Astrophe
- - • - . —
What happens when cat meets snake is shown in this
series of four photographs during a garden meeting in Paris.
It may be that Tabby thought ‘‘the thing” icas some kind of
ribbon and lifts an inquisitive paw (1) only to freeze stiff when
“it” suddenly lifts its head and hisses a learning. Its curiosity
aroused, kitty (2) feints with her left, while the not-so-playful
playmate prepares to attack. Uncoiling itself the reptile (3)
lunges as surprised kitty rears to safety before the darting fangs.
The terror of the mice world finally (4) launches a two-pawed
attack at its cunning contender who recoils to cover. The
outcome of the encounter is not known, but it is our guess that
it ended in a draw. —Wide World Photos.

Would Restrict Rate In
crease Plea to Basic
By the Associated Press.
In a surprise move, the Nation's
railroads asked the Interstate Com
merce Commission yesterday to restrict
current hearings on proposed freight
rate surcharges to tariffs affecting
basic commodities.
At the same time they requested
a decision “as early as possible."
The request was construed in some
quarters as seeking a “test case" on
the commodities which would bear the
bulk of the proposed Increases.
If the hearings are limited, and the
decision adverse to the carriers, these
quarters suggested the roads might
abandon their entire fight for an up
ward readjustment of the freight rate
The roads are seeking higher rates
on a specified list of freight as a means
to recapture a substantial portion of
the revenue they say they have lost
through Government termination of
emergency freight surcharges last De
cember 31. Spokesmen have estimated
this loss at $10,000,000 monthly.
Yesterday’s request, made by R. V.
Fletcher, general counsel of the Asso
ciation of American Railroads, was
that the hearings be limited to rates
on coal, Iron, steel, ore, coke, cement,
lime, plaster and petroleum. He ex
pressed the opinion they could be
covered by January 16.
“In submitting this proposal,”
Fletcher said, “the carriers express
themselves as anxious to expedite the
hearing In every way.”
Commissioner Clyde B. Aitchlson, In
charge of the hearings, said he would
present the request to the commission
In a conference late yesterday,
railroad and utility commissioners
from New Jersey, Illinois, Wisconsin,
Iowa, Minnesota. Kansas, Kentucky
and North Dakota agreed to protest
against limiting the hearing to basic
