I The ICC, in announcing the ; decision today, said the Penn- jsylvania Railroad must get rid of all of its financial interests j in the N & W and the Wabash, j because the Pennsylvania "is in a position to extend its control over the proposed system." The transaction involves the merger of the Nickel Plate—formally known as the New York, Chicago & St. Louis Rallroad- into the Norfolk & Western, and the subsequent lease of the Wa bash. The result would be a rail network extending from the port of Hampton Roads, Va., to the Great Lakes and Midwest. The decision was adopted June 24 by a 10-1 vote.
