MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, JANUARY 23 193G FIVE PROBE OF M., ST. L. FINANCIAL STRUCTURE MAY BE ASKED STEP TO HALTING ROAD'S DIVISION Hildebrandt Says R.R. Could Make Profit If Water in Stock Taken Out. WASHINGTON. Jan. 23. (.?)--A congressional investigation of the financial structure of the Minneapolis and St. Louis railroad may be asked in an effort to block parcelling out the road. Representative Fred H. Hildebrandt, Watertown, S. Dak., democrat and chairman of an unofficial committee of congressmen from Iowa, Illinois, Minnesota and South Dakota organized to oppose dismemberment, said today this was one of the moves suggested. Will Consider Steps. Hildebrandt said he hoped to be able to call the congressmen from the four states together next week to consider what steps to take in combatting the application of the Associated railways, now pending before the interstate commerce commission. He has been delaying a call of the meeting pending some additional information. Although confident the dismemberment plan, along with abandonment of several hundred miles of trackage, would be blocked eventually, Hildebrandt said a long fight might be ahead. The investigation of the financial structure, Hildebrandt asserted, might be ahead. For Better Solution. The investigation of the financial structure, Hildebrandt asserted, might be asked as a means showing the reasons for the road's difficulties and as a basis for better solution of the problem than parcelling out the line. "If we can bring a full realization of what this move would mean to many communities, it would help too," he said. "If the water was taken out of the railroad's financial structure, it could operate profitably on its present basis. But if some of these lines can't be operated as main lines, what chance would they have of being operated profitably if they were .made secondary lines on some other railroad?" Attorney at Belmond to Be Buried Friday BELMOND, Jan. 23.--Funeral .services for W. B. Bullard, 77, attorney, will be held Friday afternoon at 2 o'clock at the home. The Rev. A. H. Anderson will officiate.
