JAGGER AiMolitri Pr«n FlnuHltl Idlttr IVKW VORK, Feb. 16.—Railroad 111 managements found today that much of the responsibility for the financial plight of America's $20,000.000,000 rail system* had been placed squarely on their own doorsteps by the report of th'e national transportation committee. This non partisan committee, which con. ducted a sweeping investigation ot the transportation problem at the behest of savings banks, Insurance companion and other large Investors, uitrid drastic measures toward consolidation, eliminating wasteful competition. Can Save Millions . 'It has been estimated on good authority," said the report, "that «ev- • eral hundred million dollars, or enough to pay Interest on a large part of the outstanding railroad bonds, can be saved." ' * The committee found some Jus* tlce In railroads' complaint that they have been hamstrung by inept regulation, but reported a "tendency to overemphasize this argument." Declaring regulation has "left something to be desired," the report added: , "The railroads should do much that they have not done to Improve their condition without any government help at all. They should be promptly freed of all unnecessary Jjestrlctlons on the doing of it. Outlook Not Hopeless "It has been estimated that less than a 20 per cent Increase In traffic would put most of them on an earnings basin. In view of the narrowness of this margin of loss, and the very great savings possible In railroad operation, we regard the outlook as far from hopeless." s The report, Issued last night, was signed by Bernard M. Baruch, , who succeeded the late Calvin Coolldgo as chairman, by Clark Howell and Alexander Legge. ' Smith Memorandum Alfred_E. Smith, while stating that he was In substantial agreement with tho greater part of the report, did not sign It. He Issued a supplementary memorandum, "placing the emphasis where I think it belongs." . Declaring that "parallel lines are wasteful and unnecessary," the committee report said, "Regional consolidations should be hastened and, where necessary, enforced, looking eventually . to a single national system." Smith did not agree with his colleagues that immediate revision of the statutory rule for rate making or a modification of the Reconstruction Finance Corporation's collateral requirements for the special benefit of railroads, were needed, Smith went a step beyond the others on the question of corporate COMMENT BY I WILL ROGERS) BEVERLY HILLS, Feb. 15.— (To the Editor of The 'Bakersf laid Call- for'nlan:) — Mr. Hoover, who we looked to for a little encouragement In his radio talk fllve us the worst news that's hit us yet — he said the Republicans' are coming back.

BOOTH (Associated Press Leased Wire) TUCUMCARI, N. M., Feb. 15.—Two bandits sat on the desolate prairie today and watched complacently while their penniless victim, Lee Marshall, 60-year-old homesteader, sizzled In flames after they chained him, threw gasoline on him and set him afire. After Marshall was burned from head to foot and his screams were silenced the men apparently believed him dead and loosened his bonds. They left and Marshall staggered three miles through zero weather to neighbors. Burns Fatal, Feared Physicians said Marshall probably is burned fatally. The flesh had fallen from his hands, arms, back and hips.' Marshall said the two men accosted him as he stepped from the dugout where he lives on his homestead 20 miles east of Logan, near the Texas line. "Stick 'em up," one of the men commanded as they flashed a light on Marshall and dug 1 his ribs with a gun. Jeered, Beaten After searching him and finding no money the men demanded to know where he kept his cash. Marshall told them he had none. The men jeered and beat him with a revolver. Then they chained his feet, tied his hands, rolled him on his stomach, and poured gasoline on him, he'said. They laughed as they tossed a match and,his cloth- Ing caught fire. Then they sat down nearby. One of the men tossed a blanket on him and it too burned. ) The entire countryside near Logan was aroused today and Sheriff Allen had no difficulty In organizing a posse. L A. PLANS TO CARE IDLE (United Press Leased Wire) LOS ANGELES, Feb. IS.—Steps toward forming a "farm and factory partnership" for the benefit of" 225,000 destitute were taken by Los Angeles county' today with organization of the community land chest. The project, analagous to Henry Ford's enterprise at .Dearborn, Mich., was Indorsed by the 1 county Board of Supervisors, which asked for a report on tho legislative program necessary to form a corporation and to enlist funds from the Reconstruction Finance Corporation. Sponsored by Supervisor Harry M. Balne, the plan if successful would permit any deserving applicant to obtain a plot of land and a house, with the opportunity of buying both.

VAUGHN f United /Vein Leased \\'\re> »TIOKIO, Feb. 16.—Foreign Minis •*• ter Yasuya Uchlda today telegraphed V'osuke Matsuoka, Japanese representative at the League of Nations, Instructions to depart from Geneva, about February,^ on his return to Toklo. Matsuoka's departure from Geneva will signify Japan's first step to'ward withdrawal from, the League. It was understood Matsuoka and members of his delegation will return lo Japan by way of the United Status. The government desires to receive Matsuoka's personal report on the .situation at Geneva before making formal announcement of Japan's withdrawal from further conciliation, the United Press was Informed. In view of the fact Matsuoka probably will visit Washington before proceeding to Toklo, It was considered unlikely that Japan's resignation from the League would occur before the latter part of April. No Further Concession Although the league has left tho door to conciliation In the SIno-Japan- ese dispute still open theoretically, tho foreign office announced Japan would have no further concessions to offer and would stand firmly by Its determination to maintain the government of Manchukuo In the territories wrested from Chinese control. The Toklo stock exchange was closed at noon today and those of Osaka and Nagoya also were shut down pwing to a severe' slump In prices caused by Indications of Increasing untl-Japanese sentiment at Geneva. Crucial Action It was learned on high authority that the government feels withdrawal from the League would bo the turning point In the empire's history. Before the ultimate decision Is made, the council of elders, the nation's highest distinguished personages, the heads of branches of the royal family, and all living ex-premiers, will be summoned for consultation. The foreign office Indicated that Matsuoka has been Instructed to deliver a final speech at Geneva, reiterating Japan's position In the Man- churlan dispute. This will probably be made Immediately after the League assembly adopts the recommendations of the committee of 19 next week. Consult Elder Statesmen Upon the League's adoption of the committee's- recommendations, Premier Salto will follow out the time- honored Japanese custom of asking permission of the- empire's "elder statesmen" to resign from the League. He will first call on Prince Salonji, last of the genro, or advisers to the ruler. The aged prince, who now lives In quiet retirement, was adviser to the grandfather of the present emperor and Is one of Japan's most powerful political figures. MANDATES MAY INVOLVE U. S. A.

In a series of conferences last night, representative bankers urged upon Governor Comstock the Issuance of a supplemental proclamation authorizing emergency withdrawals up to 10 per cent of balances. Payments Permitted The governor, however, urged voluntary action. He said that "while my proclamation declaring a bank holiday was mandatory, It Is' not my disposition to prohibit any bank from making a sensible arrangement to permit withdrawals to meet family necessities or to allow the cashing "of pay checks, and I believe many banks will do this." • "Big 3" to Pay In Cash The "Big Three" of the automobile manufacturing Industry—General Motors, Chrysler and Ford — announced 'T'WO Mexican bandits, raiding la •*• borderland style with 'bullet- spitting automatic pistols in their hands and curses In their mouths, lined up more than a score of patrons In the Virginia pool hall last night, robbed the proprietor of $29 and escaped under cover of darkness down the shadowy alleys of the L street district.
