LEE or I, P-T Capitol Bureau . WASHINGTON--The railroad industry got a big lift last week from President Eisenhower's statement that he, too, is "all for some reform" to enable the carriers to make more money. Industry leaders here, who successfully lobbied through Congress some key changes to the Interstate Commerce Act-in 1958, privately hailed Eisenhower's remarks at his press conference as the first convincing evidence they've had that he's four-square behind their demands for even more relief from federal controls. . Meanwhile the Association of American Railroads issued a somewhat reserved public appraisal of what they termec the President's "concern over the plight of the railroads.' The AAR said the industry now can hope the administration and Congress "will begin to take appropriate action." However, a study of the nation's entire transportation system--embracing railroads, airlines, maritime carriers, pipelines and trucks -- on which the Senate Commerce Committee is just embarking raises a serious q u e s t i o n whether further congressional action to help the railroads is likely during the remainder of Eisenhower's administration. In fact, troduced senators have in- legislation to re- Verse one of the 1958 changes. * * * * THE SENATE STUDY Is being directed by retired Maj. Gen. John Doyle for committee Chairman Warren Magnuson (D-Wash). Although Doyle expects to report on various aspects of the whole system at various t i m e s throughout this year, the Senate Rules Committee has been asked to extend the life of the study group and the deadline for its final report until January 1961. This extension, in the opinion of some observers, will effectively rule out the possibility of Senate and House action this year. Congress does not like to hurry its committee study groups, nor does it often legislate in areas where surveys are still under way. H o w e v e r , a companion study of the whole national Gen. Medaris Steps Out of Missile Post HUNTSV1LLE, Ala. (fft -Maj. Gen. John B. Medaris, the Army's champion of a| bigger program for ballistic missiles and outer space exploration, stepped down Saturday. Retiring after 38 years in the Army, Medaris left behind a record of persistent iirgings for more money and fewer restrictions in the nation's space race with Russia. During formal retirement ceremonies Saturday, Medaris received the Distinguished Service Medal oak leaf cluster and the Legion of Merit. ; Medaris' successor, as head of the Atomic Ordnance Mis sile Command will be Maj. Gen. August Schomburg. ' In the four years he headed the" Army's missile and space effort, Medaris' voice repeatedly carried a warning. He said the United States was trailing dangerously far behind Russia in missile development, but could catch up by spending more money and .putting through sweeping reorganizations. Many of Medaris' arguments are expected to be outlined in a forthcoming book, tentatively called "Countdown to Decision." transportation picture recently was completed by the Com merce Department. This was suggested by the President in his budget message last year and it will be on his desk soon, according to department officials. This report, which was drafted by a special committee headed by Dr. Ernest Williams, professor of transportation at Columbia University, is expected to identify the problems and propose remedies. Even before it is made public it is being assailed for an anticipated pro- railroad bias. * # * # AT ANY RATE, the Commerce Department study under the general direction of Jecretary Frederick H. Muel- cr presumably would tend to favor less rather than more Federal control in rate-making, train service and other problems disturbing the industry. Among other reforms, the industry is asking for tax revisions to stimulate capital spending for improved facilities and to correct what it calls "inequities in comparison to the railroads' subsidized competition," the right :o provide service by truck, airplane and barge on the same terms as other transportation i n d u s t r i e s a n d equality of regulation in haul- ng agricultural commodities." * 4 * :: THE 1958 LEGISLATION included these key changes sought by the railroads-Abandonment of the old 'umbrella" law which required the Interstate Commerce Commission, in approving railroad rates, to take into consideration their effect on other forms of transportation. --Reversal of the former rule that the burden of proof fall on the railroad rather than the community where a carrier's decision to terminate service is contested. The shifting of the burden of proof is the target of the new legislation introduced last week by Chairman Magnuson and the 21 other senators from both parties supporting him. Supporters include Sens. Hubert H. Humphrey and Eugene J. McCarthy (D-Minn) and Thomas H. Kuchel (R-Calif). Magnuson said 196 terminations have resulted since Congress removed the burden of proof from .the railroads. He said complaints from governors, mayors and other public officials indicate the 1958 ac tion "left the door wide open for discontinuance of service." Some action is needed, he said, "to prevent further impairment of the service to the public." Japan to Build Fighter Planes TOKYO W) -- Japan plans to build 2Q,0 F104CJ Lockheed fighters for the nation's fledging Air Force in the next five years at a cost of 268 million dollars with the United States paying 28 per cent. The Japanese cabinet made the decision last week despite press and political opposition. i fop Jail breaker Jailed^ but for How Long?
