The property was purchased from the Villa Site and Development Tompanyrbfhieh-MrsrraTnfeC; Havens is president.

The amount involved in the transaction was not disclosed, but was reported to approximate $200,000. While, the Utility District announced the land was purchased to protect the Upper San Leandro watershed, August Vollmer, director of the East Bay Regional Park Board, expressed a belief that the property would be turned over to the park district as soon as that body secured sufficient funds to purchase it. ONLY SMALL PORTION 1 The property extends approximately a mile westerly from Sequoia Park above Skyline Boulevard and about the same distance back into the hills. Only a comparatively small portion is in Alameda Ceunty. Acquisition of the land will prevent residential encroachment on the watershed and preserve the natural beauty of the area for the enjoyment of future generations, according to Robert Mitchell, of the firm of Mitchell and Austin which handled the deal.

WASHINGTON, Dec. 3. () The Interstate Commerce Commission approved today a $2,500,000 passen ger fare increase for-Western rail roads. The increase will become effective in 10 days. The principal boost is in basic Pullman car fares which will be raised from 2 cents per mi.e to 2V cents per mile." The new rates will mean increases in transcontinental fares since travel costs between New York and San Francisco, for instance, depend in part on the Western rates.

Principal among the railroads ef fected by the increase are Union Pacific, Northern Pacific, Minneap olis, St. Paul and Sault Ste. Marie; Chicago, Milwaukee, St. Paul and Pacific; Chicago and North Western, Chicago, Rock Island and Pacific Railway. OTHER ROADS INCLUDED The Atchison, Topeka and Santa Fe; the Missouri-Kansas-Te a lines; the St.

Louis-San Francisco; Missouri Pacific; Southern Pacific; Denver and Rio Grande and the. Great Northern also are included. Railway officials were authority for the estimate' that the proooscd increases would, produce $2,500,000 yearly in new revenue. The rates remain below maximums set by the commission about two years ago. The maximums are 3 cents a mile for Pullman travel and 2 cents for coach fares.

The new schedules include a boost in 30-day round-trip Pullman fares from 180 per cent of the one way 2 cent pee mile fares to 190 per cent, of the new 2Vii cents fare. A similar percentage increase was madt in 30-day round-trip coach fares although the basic 2 cent per mile fare remained unchanged ROUND TRIPS AFFECTED The schedule also provided an increase in first -class six-months round-trip fares from a basis of 1 2-3 of the one-way first class fares of three cents per mile to a basis of 1 5-6. Likewise included was a 10 per cent Increase in 12-month excursion fares. The increase in special one-way transcontinental coach fares now based on Vk per mile will amount to 14.5 per cent and the increase in round trip transcontinental six- month coach excursion fares will be approximately 13.34 per cent. The commission also approved "arbitrary" increases in second class coach fares from Long Beach, Los.

Angeles, San Diego and San Pedrq, inland, the increase in each case to be competitive with motor bus fares. Similar increases were also approved for East-bound one-way and round trip inland proportional coach fares from San Francisco to Vallejo. U. S. Bar Accepts S.

As the battle lines formed, the American Federation of Lrbor's executive council met to draft new recommendations concerning labor standards legislation, BOWS TO' A.

F. L. The federation' recently opposed administration of the program by a proposed five-member independent board. The House Labor Committee agreed to substitute a single administrator under jurisdiction of the Labor Department. Many other changes already have been made in the bill since it passed the Senate last Summer.

Because the Senate will have to vote on all the House alterations, Speaker Bankhead and other leaders were reluctant to estimate the bill's chances for getting to President Roosevelt before the special session ends during Christmas week. It probably will come before the House on December 13. Meanwhile a House tax subcom mittee talked of recommending a constitutional amendment or legislation to permit the Federal Government to tax $14,854,000,000 of State and municipal securities and to allow State and municipal governments to tax $35,548,000,000 of Federal securities. TWO BILLS DIFFER Both versions of the wage bill would "empower a labor standards board to fix minimum wages as hjgh as 40 cents an hour and a work week of 40 or more hours for workers in interstate industries. The bills differ, however, on methods for eliminating child labor.

The Senate approved language prohibiting shipment of products of child labor into States whose laws ban xhild labor. The House bill wouflwjan such products entirely from interstate commerce. The House 'bill contains two amendments proposed bg the A. F. of L.

to protect collective bargaining agreements and the so-called "prevailing" wage. 'LOG ROLLING' CHARGED Even before completion of the petition, circulated after Republicans and Southern Democrats on the Rules Committee had blocked the bill for months, charges were made in the House that "log-rolling" and undue pressure had been used to get signatures. Representative Healey (D Mass.) chairman of an unofficial steering committee supporting the bill, termed the charges "preposterous," and the House voted down a resolution by Representative Fish N. calling for their investigation, Rep.

(U.R) With the Christmas shopping season in full swing, 12 of the city's leading department stores and retail establishments today published ad vertisements asking customers to carry their own packages from the stores because of labor troubles in their delivery departments. The published statement blamed San Francisco and Seattle labor leaders for the trouble, and said: "Organizers sent into Los Angeles by Dave Beck, a San Francisco and Seattle labor boss, are attempting to disrupt your delivery service from the downtown stores during the Christmas shopping period, ASK COOPERATION "To assist us in combatting this un warranted invasion, we are asking you to cooperate with us.

"The condition of paralysis that is spreading' through our National economy," he said, "is because of fear that the very foundation upon which our industrial enterprise is based, is in jeopardy.

"Too many believe, and too much has been done to make them believe, that the industrial system, as we understand it today, is being per mitted to exist as a mort or less temporary expedient tolerated, i may say." Asserting that "industry's objective requires the application of the 'theory of plenty' always a greater flow of goods and services," Sloan declared: "Our difficulty is that our operating policies such as increasing prices, less work, reduced flow of goods, bureaucratic artificial restrictions lead us directly to the application of the 'theory of scarcity' less things for more people." DEFEND ON INTELLIGENCE Sloan said "the perpetuation of the capitalistic system, and the maintenance of democracy itself," depended upon "the intelligence with which we distribute the' productivity of industry" among its "com ponent parts. "The component parts," he said, "are the workers; the owners, represented by management; the consumers; the Government, and the future the last named being a 'silent partner' in which all the others have an important If the share of any one group becomes too great or too little, he said, "the system gets out of balance, resulting in declining productivity and even chaos and disintegration." TREND REVERSED Asserting that it was an "indisputable fact that the recovery movement could not have run its normal economic course," Sloan blamed the current business recession upon "certain influences some due to our National economic policies and others, psychological in naturewhich have resulted in not only arresting but actually reversing the normal trend of the recovery Wages, he continued, especially in workers' groups "earning the highest wages already," have risen, with the result that "prices in general have advanced more rapidly than purchasing power-. prejudicing both consumption and employment. "Not only that, but worker groups have been permitted to interfere with the flow of goods and services) through costly strikes in same cases, minority groups have prevented the majority from working even' on terms entirely satisfactory to that majority.

Transfer of the California High way Patrol from the department of motor vehicles to the highway commission. 2. Organization of a new high way commission with ruii-time group of five salaried members. This commission would have com' plete charge of State highway af fairs, including not only construe maintenance and allocation of funds, but law enforcement and promotion of traffic safety on the highways. LIKE RAILWAY BOARD In many important respects," the announcement said, "the new high way commission would occupy position comparable to, that of the California Railroad commission H.

J. Brunnier, chairman of the highways committee of the Califor nia State Automobile Association and Henry W. Keller, chairman-of the same committee of the Automo bile Club of Southern California, is sued the statement. The need for enlarging the func tions of the Highway Commission is clear and to that end a reorganiza Hon of the commission is neces' sary, they saia. TO CONTINUE POLICIES The nronosed amendment would providd a continuity of highway ad-ministrativei policies.

At present the entire Highway Commission serves at the Dleasure of the Governor Hichwav affairs should oe, as iar as Dossible, removed from political influences. The smendment provides or the aDDointment of highway com. missioners by the Governor, subject to confirmation by the State Senate, for 10-year terms, so arranged as to have one of the five terms expire every two years. This would remove the commission from control ol any one administration." EXPERIENCE REQUESTED The recommendation added that the commissioners 'ihall havethe training and experience for the office, and that not more than three shall be of the same political party. They could be removed from office prior to expiration, of their terms only by a two-thirds vote of the State Senate.

Transfer of jurisdiction over the highway patrol to the new Highway Commission is most logical. There is a direct and close relation between building safety into highways and policing, the highways for the safe movement of Among the duties prescribed by the amendment for the new commission are analyses of accident causes, safety education and enforcement of motor vehicle laws on the highways." Ingels Expresses Opposition to Change SACRAMENTO, Dec. Ingels, director of the State Department of Motor Vehicles, today expressed" determined opposition to the proposal of the California automobile associations to change the motor vehicle codes. i Such a step would be a backward step," he said. "The necessity of maintaining the enforcement agency, the California Highway Patrol, as an integral part of the Department of Motor Vehicles seems to me apparent--Enforcement of the motor vehicle code must be united with the administrative agencies of the Department of Motor Vehicles to obtain results.

"Propositions corresponding to the automobile clubs' proposal have been tried and abandoned in favor of the present system now in use in California.

It was the culmination of wild scenes involving nationals and; troops of the United States and Great Britain that followed the suicide gesture of a Chinese patriot against Japanese troops engaged ia "victory parade" through the International Settlement, The Chinese threw a hand grenade at the parading Japanese, paid for it with his life a few seconds later, but touched off occurrences for time threatened to have a most serious result.

Marines and- British soldiers, pushed foreigners' about with rifle butts, set up ma chine guns. Methodically they extended this seized area until it had passed far enough up Bubbling Well Road to enter, the V. S. Marine defense area, The grenade had been thrown at noon; by then it was approaching dusk. Colonel Charles Price, comman-' der of the Fourth Marine regiment, accompanied by Captain Ronald Boone, drove up to the Japanese line.

Sentries, poising bayonetted rifles, halted them. Both got out and demanded to see the command-' ing officer. The sentry officer refused to call him. There were hot words. HOT WORDS PASSED The sentry officer finally com plied, but when the American offi cer demanded to be escorted to the commander, he refused flatly.

Boone and his adversary exchanged more heated compliments and the escort was provided. A half hour later they returned, and Japanese officers giving the command to withdraw, Price was heard to exclaim: "You are practically Invading the United States defense sector. You must withdraw immediately." The Japanese troeps were within the American defense' zone when the marine commander took action. They had seized an. area that included the foreign Y.
