The Agriculture Department also assailed the proposed increase, while State officials and industrial or ganizations opposed granting it in advance of hearings, as the rail roads had asked. The ICC hearings will consider that part of the railroads’ petition asking authority to put into effect a 25 per cent freight rate hike on May 15 on one day’s notice. The commission also announced that it has decided to reopen for hearing at the same time the pro ceeding in which the railroads re ceived a 10 per cent passenger fare increase and a 3 to 6 per cent freight rate hike in 1942. Fare Increases to Expire. These freight rate increases have been Under suspension since May 15, 1943. The passenger fare increases still are in effect but are scheduled to expire six months after the legal termination of the war. The rail roads asked that they be made per manent. The hearings will consider wheth er the 1942 freight rate increases should be permitted to go into effect promptly in place of an immediate 25 per cent increase. The price and stabilization agen cies came out flatly against any fare hikes for at least a year, "beyond the minimum required by law.” The law requires the commission to pre scribe rates which will enable the railroads to provide efficient service. The proposed increases would touch off “numerous increases in the cost of living,” the two agencies said in a brief. They declared the proposal "cre ates a serious hazard for the Gov ernment's efforts to achieve national economic stability.” Proposal Assailed. A joint brief by the National As sociation of Railroad and Utilities Commissioners and the Southeastern Association of Railroad and Utilities Commissioners called the proposal for a rate increase without a hearing "unprecedented” and said: “It appears clear that the railroads face no immediately impending dis aster or emergency which would jus tify the commission in permitting the filing of the increased rates on one day's notice." Embezzlement of $244r038 From Union Charged in Suit By tha Associated Press BALTIMORE, April 27.—An in junction suit filed in Circuit Court by Local 101, United Brotherhood of Carpenters and Joiners of America (AFL), charged yesterday that an agent appointed by William Hutche son, brotherhood general presi dent, embezzled at least $244,038.30 of the local funds and accused Mr. Hutcheson of “coercing and intimi dating certain witnesses to with hold” testimony on the “embezzle ment.” The brotherhood said the present local union had been dissolved at a general convention in Lakeland, Fla., last Tuesday. Judge Michael Manley issued a mandatory injunction ordering the local to turn over its records and assets and instructed the brother hood to post a $700,000 bond pending final decision of the case. The injunction petition charged that "Hutcheson exercised the pow ers of his office as general president for the purpose of coercing and in timidating and bribing certain wit nesses to withhold their testimony! pertaining to said embezzlements and certain documents in their pos session which constituted conclusive evidence to said embezzlement.” Italy s King Expected To Abdicate Soon By the Associated Press ROME, April 27.—Monarchist cir cles predicted alst night that King Victor Emmanuel would abdicate next month in favor of Crown Prince Umberto in hopes of strengthening chances of the monarchy in the referendum June 2 for a kingdom or republic.

PHILLIPS Realtor 927 15th Dl. 1411 * - McNarney Promises No 'Whitewashing' In Lichfield Trials B> the Associated Press FRANKFURT, April 27.—Gen. Joseph T. McNarney asserted last night that he would not permit the "whitewashing of any culpable in dividual” in the Lichfield trials, but said his investigators had failed to find any evidence that officers were being favored over enlisted men in the court-martial proceedings. The European commander of United States forces made his state ment as Army officials at Bad Nau heim set next Tuesday as the day for resuming the court-martials of six American officers and eight en listed men on charges of conspiracy to mistreat or of actually inflicting cruelty on American soldier pris oners at the Lichfield, England, military prison in 1944 and 1945. Trials Shifted for Speedup. The trials, which started in Lon don last December, were shifted to Germany to "expedite” them. Gen. McNarney said a report to the War Department on the inves tigation of the trials by Maj. Gen. W. A. Burress, his inspector gen eral in the European theater, at tributed the delays principally to the necessity of securing witnesses from the United States. Gen. McNarney’s statement said the report “emphasizes that the investigation made does not indi cate that any headquarters or re sponsible officer has intentionally or through neglect caused delay of the trials.” Three Main Points Made. The report made these three main points: 1, There was no evidence that ac cused enlisted men, charged witn having beaten prisoners, would be dishonorably discharged while offi cers would be cleared of charges of issuing'orders directing such prac tices. 2. There was no evidence that charges would not be drawn against any person found responsible fori illegal actions. 3. It was not a fact that charges were improperly or inaccurately drawp with the intent of giving ad vantage to any defendant, officer or enlisted man. — Allied Council in Berlin Deadlocked on Two Issues By the Associated Press BERLIN, April 27.—In a session lasting nearly nine hours, the Allied Kommandatura was deadlocked yes terday with the Soviet representative opposing the three western powers on two political issues.

Unable to obtaiirSoviet agreement, to an election as early as August l.j the Kommandatura referred the whole,, matter to the Allied control authority for Germany. i The conflict over the Socialist- j Communist merger developed when Soviet Gen. Notikov tried to bring about immediate recognition of the | merger. French Gen.
