BLYTHEVILLE COURIER NEWS VOL. XLII1—NO. 77 Blythcvllle Dully Newi Ulyihevtllu Courier TH« DOMINANT NEWSPAPER OP NOKTHKAJ9T ARKANSAS AND SOUTHEAST MIHUOUHI Railroads Obtain Rate Increases Of $390,000,000 ICC Studies Request For Much Larger Increase for Carriers WASHINGTON, June 22. <UPt — Tlie nation's railroads, already granted ,,,, estimated $390,000,000 annual increase in freight r&la, today nwalted further i;ovcrnme:iu action on their requests to hike shipment charges by a flat 25 per cent. The Interstate Commerce Commission authorized freight rate increases of three to six per cent, effective July 1, and promised that hearing;; would be belli soon on Die railroad's 25 per cent petition. ICC said the rale increase was au emergency measure to ease the financial burden Hint higher wages and prices have placed on the curriers. With some exceptions. Hie iiew charges arc the same as those first allo\vc<l by the commission in 19!2 and suspended the following y.'nr. Hates on agricultural products. hvo_ stock and mine products will -jo up three per cent. Those on all other commodities \\ill go up s!>: Iicr cent. The commission, however, allowed railroads in northeastern states an additional five per cent boos;, or an overall increase of eight '-o 11 per cent. The ICC sadi its studios showed carriers serving that region received a lower rate of ro turu on their Investments. Hates on coal, lignite and iron ore were expected from the special five per cent allowance. The commission also forbid the carriers to offer free pick-up and delivery service or io make allowances for it to shippers when line- haul rates arc less than 50 cents per 100 pounds. Representatives of the offic'.?.- of price administration, economic stabilization and the Department of Agriculture challenged the 'ail- roads' claim of an emergency. SOUK witnesses said sharp Increases fr freight rates would be inlhitionar; nnd Plight prove "disastrous" U the country's reconversion. The new .rates apply to watci carriers and freight forwarders as well as railroads. The commission made no changes in passenger fares. Increased 10 per cent in 1942. The Increases arc slated to disappear six months after the legal end of the war. U. of A. Dormitory To Bear Name of Blythevilie Hero FAYKTTKVILLE. Ark.. June 22.

(NKA ri'clc]>holo.> RFC's Spending May Be Checked i Congress Proposes •; Investigation of 'Bookkeeping' Laxity By SANDOU S. KI.KIN United Press StafT Correspondent WASHINGTON, June 22. — A Congressional investigation was promised today into charges ol lax bookkeeping by the Nation's largest lending institution—the Reconstruction Finance Corp. The charges were made by Comptroller General Lindsay C. Warren who turned the matter over lo Congress after nn audit of HFC's books disclosed a condition of "such seri- ^usn'jss and moment." Warren's criticism was aimed at the RFG'3 accounting practices but did not accuse the agency of wrongful irregularities. Chairman Brent Spencc, D.. Ky.. of the House Banking Committee, said thai when his group begins consideration of n measure to continue RFC's lending authority for two more years after nc\t Jan. 22 it "will investigate the mailers raised by the comptroller general." Spencc said he did not believe the investigation would prevent enactment of the extensive legislalion because RFC loans were still needed by the Nation's business. Such legislation, however, could direct reforms in RFC's accounting practices. Chairman Carter Manwo. «., Ala., of the House Executive Expenditures Committee to which the comptroller general's report was referred, said he would be willing to waive the right to investigj'.c in favor of Spcncc's committee. "However." he added, "if the banking committee doesn't investigate, we will. I think this is a matter that should be looked into." fn a letter lo Chairman Robert P. Wagner. D., N.

"It docs not contain a sinsi statement indicating, irregularities or even any intimation of irreijular- ities in the opcratons of RFC." lie added. "However, in our opinion these statements of the general accounting office are phrased in a way which creates an cnt'rrlv unwarranted conclusion ns lo the mnt- hours to determine whether all the bodies had been recovered.
