The Arizona Industrial Congress
has taken over the Arizona branch ot
the Intermountain Rate Association
to make It a traffic bureau for all
shippers of the state according to
word received here this week from
the congress The rate agency In
future will he known as the Rate As
sociation of tho Arizona Industrial
Congress but will retain its organi
zation and staff
Establishment of a state traffic
bureau by the Industrial Congress is
expected to be of material benefit
pecially to tho smaller communities
of the state which In past havo been
overlooked In rate adjustments be-
cause they had no means of represen B
tatlon The purpose of the new ar 1
rangement Is explained as follows tajf
letters sent by the congress
merclal and farm organizations
throughout tho state S
he Arizona Industrial Congress
has absorbed tho organization pre 8
vtously known usUlie Arizona Branch
of tho Intermountain Rate Associa
tion and proposes to enlarge Its activi
ties to all rate probloma of tho state
In the future tho Association will bof
known as The Rate Association olf
Arizona Industrial Congress H
The Association Is now In opera r
tlon with a traffic expert and steno-
grapher and will be under the super-
vision of Mr P R Helm president ot
the Association
It has been found that small com
munities are sometimes
roada due to the fact that when rates
to the larger communities aro revised
the intermediate rates are left with
out adjustment
It Is proposed through this Asso
ciation to protect the Interests of
thoso who are unable to support a
traffic bureau of their own Tho
railroads have agreed to cooperato
with ua and to give full consideration
to adjustments presented It is hoped
that by thla cooperation much delay
and dissatisfaction may bo avoided -
Any suggestions regarding tho ex t
panslou ot usefulness of this asao
elation will be addressed to tho
zona Industrial Congress Rate Asso r
