FOURTEEN SEES STRANDING OF ELEVATORS Iowa Congressman Opposes Breaking Up M. and St. L. Road. WASHINGTON -- Fifty-seven grain elevators in Minnesota, Iowa and South Dakota would be left stranded without any rail facilities under the dismemberment program proposed for the Minneapolis and St. Louis railroad, Congressman Guy M. Gillette of Iowa said cere. Congressman Gillette is a member of a voluntary committee in Washington which is lending its support to the fight against the sale plan of the Associated Railways company under which the M. and St. L. would be parceled out among eight competing carriers and more than 500 miles of its trackage dropped. Elevators Vital Need. "The elevators which would be left stranded have a capacity of 1,370,000 bushels," Mr. Gillette pointed out. "Think of the hardships the loss of these elevators would bring. Not only are thousands of dollars invested' in them but the elevators are a vital need in the agricultural communities they serve. It. would be necessary for farmers to ka.ul their grain long distances for shipment to the markets. An elevator without rail service is useless tecause no substitute for the railroad has been found to rush large cuantities of grain to the terminals during the harvest season. "The farmers will suffer not only from increased hauling costs but irany will have investments affected, since some of the elevators are farm co-operative institutions." 24 Stranded in Iowa. Congressman Gillette explained that in Iowa 24 elevators would be left without rail service,under the dismemberment plan, the elevators having a capacity of 557,000 bushels. In South Dakota 28 elevators with a capacity of 723,000 bushels would ·be left high, and dry and five in Minnesota, having 90,000 bushels' capacity. "The loss of these elevators alone trands the dismemberment plan as one jeopardizing the best interests of the territory served by the M. and St. L." he said.
