The Interstate Commerce Com
mission today was considering
additional orders to get the
maximum use from the Nation's
tight transportation facilities,
after issuing two orders to speed
up the railroad freight service.
The orders, issued “to promote

Knudson, ICC member who has
been designated as transportation
administrator under the Defense
Production Act, turned to the
problem of obtaining more freight

terprise can produce them, fine,”
he said. “If not, it may be that

to do so.’

the defense production job, which
is to include allocation of petro

electric power, should that become
As planned now, the setup is to
be headed by a deputy administra
tor, under Secretary Chapman.
Under the deputy would be five
division heads for the jobs as
signed to the department by Presi
dent Truman.
It was said that some of these
divisions may be headed by officials
now in Interior, while others may
be under experts from the indus
tries involved. It was reported
that Bruce K. Brown, assistant
deputy administrator of the Petro
leum Administration for War in
World War II, may be asked to
head the petroleum division. He
is now president of the Pan-Amer
ican Southern Corp. of New Or
leans, subsidiary of the Standard
Oil Co. of Indiana.
Ralph K. Davies, who was dep

administrator during the war, also
was listed as a possibility for the

reluctant to leave private business.

No charge is made for the first
two days the car is held. For
the next two days, under the or

made instead of $3.30 at present.
For the next fourth and fifth days
the charge is $10 a day instead of
$6, the present lop. For the sixth
day and thereafter, the charge
goes to $20 a day.
The second order directs the
railroads to deliver cars to their
