C. to Make Inquiry into Consolidation of Eastern Lines WASHINGTON-(/H-A study of the gigantic plan of Eastern transportation chiefs to consolidate $10,000,000,000 worth of railroads Into four big systems was ordered Monday by the Interstate Commerce Commission. The inquiry will be directed by Commissioner Claude R. Porter, who had charge of the original consolidation study, out of which grew the commission's proposal that Eastern lines be merged Into five systems. He will be assisted by Examiner Irving L. Koch. Hearings will begin January 6. The commission in 1929, acting under mandate of Congress, recommended a 21-system consolidation plan for the entire country Including the Eastern five-system proposal. The latter designated the Wabash-Seaboard, the Pennsylvania, the New York Central, the Baltimore and Ohio and the Chespeake and Ohio-Nickle Plate as the backbone of the groupings. The last named are commonly known as the Van Sweringen Lines, Rail executives let it be know they were unalterably opposed to creation of the Wabash-Seaboard system. They insisted it was artificial and could not be profitably operated. For months the situation was quiet insofar as surface indications were concerned. But on December 30, 1930, about a year after the five-party plan was announced, the consolidation question emerged again, with President Hoover announcing that the New York Central, Pennsylvania, Baltimore and Ohio and the Van Jweringen Lines had agreed tentatively on a four system plan. He said the railroad chiefs had gathered at his suggestion. " Conferences continued from time to time between the railroad heads. They struck numerous obstacles. Then it became necessary for all of the carriers of the country to look to their finances. The 15 per cent rate case was placed before the commission and consolidation shunted onto a side track until after disposition of the rate hearing^. On October 3 the railroads put consolidation back on the main line, presenting a four-party plan and asking the commission to adopt it as an amendment to its original consolidation scheme. The study starting in January does not mean the Eastern consolidation question will ' be disposed of. It merely means the commission will decide whether to drop its five-system plan. A decision favoring tht four-system plan would mean each system would nave to come to the commission with its own problems. This might take a year or two, although the applicants already have control of most of the trackage to be absorbed. Eight railroads in Missouri have converted their rights-of-way into canctuaries for wild birds and animals.
