(UP) — The U. S. Supreme Court today upheld the Interstate Commerce Commission's .sweeping freight rate equalization order ol 1945. Justice William O. Douglas delivered the court's 7 to 2 decision. Justices Felix Frankfurter and Robert H. Jackson dissented. The rate order, applying to so- called "class" rates, was vehemently contested by nine Northern slates, the six 'New England gover- ners and 3 western railroads. ^ The order-aimed at uniform freight costs--directed a 10 per cent increase in cla.ss rates in stater, lying Northeast of Hie Ohio. Potomac and Mississippi rivers. It cut class rates 10 per cent elsewhere cx'.'cpt West of lhe : "Rocky Mc-un- tains. The government contended that the old c,tas s rates were unduly favorable to the Northeast and blocked expansion of trade ami industry in the South and West, old rates were' called an out- ried "patchwork quilt." Northeastern states fought tc changes as unfair tc Northern manufacturers. They said the order was illegal because the ICC failed to make findings thai the railroads needed the increase or the old rates were unfair. Applies to Factories Output Ttic Western railorads argue; Mint the new rates were conflsca- tory. Class rates apply chiefly to man urnctiircrt goods. Thev cover onl: about four per cent of the nation' rail freii'ht. New York, Delaware. Indians Pennsylvania. Maryland, Michigar New Jersey, Ohio and Wiscorisi were the Northeastern states con tcslinp the order. ' "If the commission were powerless to increase rates to a reason- 1 able minimum in order to eliminate an unlawful discrimination." Doimlas said in a 20,000-word majority opinion, "it would in some cases be ixnverlcss to prescribe the remedy for unlawful practices. "The mesent case is a good, illustration." • .,.-.. Dome's said a fate reduction '-" the South and West "would remove onlv^art of the discrimination." HelRiid the discrimination in favor oi the Northeast "would continue to thrive" if the ICC were allowed to raise rates in that area only if necessary adequately to compensate the railroads.

"In response to my urging in both instances, you held in abeyance your plans to retire,'' the President wrote Acheson. "Again, when you renewed last December your wish to relinquish your post we a- grced tentatively that you should leave office on Jan. 10. 1347 "Realizing that all these deferrals hav e meant great financial sacrifice, I appreciate all the more .your magnanimous action in.stand- ing at your post for- another months."

Another Case Pending Tn a seiiarate case that probably will not be decided for another two years the high court, through a special Master Lloyd K. Garrison, is hearing a suit brought bv Former Gov. Ellis Arnall of Georgia altarking the basis on which railroad rates are .set. Arnall's attack is broader than the ICC class rate decision. Douglas rejected the contention of croups challenging the ICC order that class rates arc so little used I hut they "have largely become piper rales." "That lakes too narrow a view of the problem confronting the i-jjt,-miss ion." he said. • "-The commission's over-all conclusion was that the classifications jn force and the class rates computed from them harbor inequities which ItfsuU in unlawful discrim- inationSrMn favor of Uhe Northeast) and against the other territories. ••The fact, that relatively small amounts of freight move by class rates proves not that the regional and territorial discrimination i5 sliclit. but that the rate structure as constituted holds no promise of affording the various regions or (errilorie., that parity of treatment which territorial conditions warrant." Jackson said in his dissenting opinion that the ICC order levies n surtax on the Northeast without "sufficient proof of any specific discrimination." He said the area will be burdened with an extra. $15.000,000 a year in ..hipping bills, without any evidence lhat the railroads need new revenues.
