Class 1 railroads are those doing $1,000,000 or -more gross business annually.'.Net .income represents the amount' "remaining after • operating expenses and "allowances for fixed charges including taxes. The association said net income of the Class'1 carriers for the first ll months" of "1948 approximated , $652.000,000 "against $418,000,000 in ' the corresponding period for the previous yeariv; The report said that for the 12 months ;ended Nov. 30, 1948, the rate of. return' on • net property investment ~avcraged 4.45' per cent compared -with'a return rate of 3.58 per cent. Jor, the 12 months ended Nov. 30. 1947, ' Total operating revenues for the Ilrst 11 months of 1948 amounted to J8,$65,022,309 . against 57,882,327,302 in the same.period of 1947—an increase of 12.5, per cent. The report' listed operating .expenses in'the first 11 months of 1948 at-$6;822,812,522 compared With $6,167,601,07.7- : in the corresponding •1947 period—an increase per cent. of 10.6 Dewey Assails (Continued-.irom Page i)Regarding the-.contemplated sharp rise in New York's expenditures in the fiscal-.year beginning April 1, Dewey offered -two reasons—inflation arid the-need to expand state operations. - ~-..",. He saved f or his budget message late this month"the specific amount he thinks^-will be needed to underwrite the program. _ . The .course Dewey charted envisions » broadening of social services unprecedented in his -six years as head of the Republican- coatroUed state administration. Among other things, he proposed increased aid to education of -at least $40.000,000. above the present $:54,000,000; immediate expansion of mental hospital facilities and trained personnel;' a '• sickness "dis- ubility insurance program for workers; doubling the number of : war service scholarships for veterans from 1.200 to 2,400, and expansion of public health services. ^Assignment: (Continued from Page i) However, since the. beginning of World "War n, His Majesty has icldom drawn, the $440,000 known as tie privy purse and allotted for his personal expenses. (This Is the same allowance received by George V, at a time when the Coolldge dollar a wistful gleam in a was more banker's eye.) This'regal austerity thus cuts His Majesty's dole to about $1,200,000, which is a lot of cake "or codliver on from •. aoy : angle. At least, it seems, a lot until another look at the ledger, reveals that the 31,200,000 Is 'lor fixed expenditures over which His^Majesty can't say "Boo." George VI, for .almost a decade, ha* supported. his brood out. of the royal family's "private fortune.. The exact heft of this fortune is known only to the king and income tax branch of the. treasury, neither of •which is talking. The Duchies. of Cornwall and Lancaster' are royal lands onto whose income, the king can latch without interference by the government. The take from. Cornwall Is mbout 1360,000 annually. But this income His Majesty has voluntarily nil-rendered since the title of Cornwall is a subsidiary .title to that of Prince of Wales. Even though Princess Elizabeth Is hair to 1 the throne, she doesn't qualify lor the title or all the lovely dough; However, her Pa made a. canny"bargain -with the government when ' he surrendered Cornwall's rtvenues. His Majesty held out for $60.000 annually; tax free, for Elizabeth, and $40,000, "tax Iree, for the Duke of Gloucester', .his brother. Even so, the government made a clear $260,000 on the deal. George^VI coHects about J336.000 annually from, the Duchy of Lancaster. But England's staggering income taxes take all but a pittance. Since her 'marriage, Prlnoess Elizabeth • has' been voted another J100.000 by. the., government. But even'as a married woman with one child, the tax cuf mounts to »82,160, minus expenses. Parliament, convinced that a husband should have his own money, Toted Philip an annual .WQ.OOO at the time of the royal wedding. How- •ver, even, with Charlie to keep in vitamins, - .the income tax slices Philip's take-home pay to 915,584. Urges Controls . (Continued from Page United Nations be strengthened by passage of a universal training law. He said its enactment "is essential to the security of the United States.' Mr. .Truman said "the State of the Union is good'," but that prosperity Is threatened "at a number of critical points in the economy.'" He proposed his- anti-inflation program to put him in a position to take effective action "at these danger soots." Ask Hike In Pay Floor ' The President recommended . minimum wage of at least 75 cents an hour" (it is 1 now 40 cents), a million 'new low-rent 'public housing units over the next seven years, expanded Social Security coverage and other social measures, and declared: "We have .rejected the discredited theory. that the fortunes of the nation should be in the hands of the privileged few.. We have abandoned the 'trickles-down' concept 1 of\national prosperity. Instead, we believe that our economic system should rest on a democratic foundation and that wealth should be. created for the benefit of all. In supporting of his tax recommendations, the President said "it is essential not only .that the federal budget .be balanced, but also that there be a-substantial-surplus to reduce inflationary pressures, and permit .a sizeable reduction in the national debt, which how stands at $252,000,000,000." - . . He did not specify the nature-of the""additional corporate taxes" he wants imposed or how much of the four billion he would raise by this levy. . • • West Blizzard (Continued from Page i) ways.

Communications were disrupted and scores of towns and villages were isolated. Despite the intensity of the winds and the heavy snowfall only two deaths attributable to the storm were reported—both in Colorado. However, 'an -undetermined number of persons suffered from exposure. At Lockport, Colo!, 465 pa-sons were stranded, with more than 300 of them living in a tavern-. Lt. Lloyd K.'

New Labor Law (Continued from Page i) "There are still a great many members of Congress who want to retain the Taft-Hartley Act or a large portion of It," Green told reporters. He said the AFL and its member unions have organized a national legislative council to.improve their contacts with individual Congressmen. One thing they will insist on, Green said, is repeal of the government's power to obtain injunctions in national emergeency strikes. . - Green said the AFL wants the new labor. law to include a specific okay for the closed shop. He said that would permit-the closed shop in industries engaged' In interstate., commerce, even in states whose laws bar contracts with compulsory union membership arrange- r.ents. The Supreme Court Monday upheld the right of states to' enact such laws. ' • British Airliner Crashes In Brazil RIO de JANEIRO—(/P)—A British South American Airways plane made a forced landing on the Atlantic coast of Brazil today and reports from the area said three persons were killed.' The plane was reported to be carrying 17 persons. A dispatch from Sao Salvador in Bahia state said -the plane crashed just outside of Caravelas, about 500 miles north of Rio de Janeiro. It said some of the passengers were injured. (The airline office in London said five passengers were aboard when the plane left London but others were picked up at . intermediate points. An official of the line in London said a message from Rio reported all the members of the crew were safe). The-reports said a Brazil adr force lieutenant, Robert Studardt, was among the dead 1 , but the other two were not- identified. The lieutenant was said to have embarked at Natal.
