SATURDAY, JUNE 17, 1944 BLYTHEV1LLE (AUK.) COUJIJ15R NEWS PAGE THIIER South Seeks Freight Rate Adjustments WASHINGTON, June 17. (UP)— Counsel for the Southern Governors' Conference has protested to the Interstate Commerce Commission that southern producers have to 'pay higher freight rates than producers in olher sections of the country. The ICC is conducting an investigation of freight rates with a view of ordering a uniform, structure for the entire country. As the system stands now, rates nrc generally higher for- southern and western shippers thai) for. eastern shippers. Attorneys for the Governors' Ccn- fcreiice, J. V. Noroimi of Louisville, nskcd that rates prevailing in (he East be extended as far as the Mississippi river. He nlso attacked what he termed the arbitrary placing of an imaginary liiic between the North and the South, Norman declared "our philosophy is that all sections of the country are entitled to equal opportunity under the law." The Governors' Conference represents Alabama, Georgia, Florida, Mississippi, North Carolina, South Carolina, Tennessee, and that part of Louisiana east of the Mississippi. Representing the Southeastern Association of Railroad and Utilities Commissioners, Walter U, McDonald of Atlanta, urged the ICC to change the freight rate situation He claims that as rates now stand, industrialists arc forced to get on their knees to the railroads, before planning their operations. McDonald went, on to tell the commission that the lalx>r movement in the South is supporting the campaign for lower freight rates And, over the protest of counsel foi New York slate, distributed coplc. of a CIO advertisement opposing freight differentials.
