Hike in I. G. Commuter Fare . A zi) per cent increase in fares on Illinois Central rail road commuter lines was rec ommended Wednesday by examiners of the Illinois Com merce commission and Inter state Commerce commission, Before the fare increase can be put into effect, the exam- iners recommendation must be approved by both commis sions. The announcement was made in Washington. 70,000 Riders Daily About 70,000 daily riders on the line would be affected by the increase. The Illinois Central, con tending that present fares re sult in "unjust discrimina tion " when compared with in terstate fares, had asked for an average increase of 50 per cent. However, Burton Fuller, In terstate Commerce commission examiner, and Forrest B. M c E 1 r o y, Illinois Commerce Commission examiner, called a 20 per cent hike "just and reasonable " in their report. Ike Hasn't Decided on Plans for Vacation t Chicago Tribune Press Service! , Washington, Aug. 20 President Eisenhower said Wednesday that he has made no summer vacation plans yet.

The proposed fare increase has been the subject of a fight going back to last November, when the Illinois Central petitioned for its initial 50 per cent increase. The railroad asked the federal commission to participate in the hearing after the state commission rejected the railroad's request and ordered an investigation of the rate structure. ' Loss Put at 5 Million Last spring several suburban communities, commuter groups, and the city of Chicago asked the federal body to drop out of the case. They contended that the suburban fare increase was entirely within Illinois and therefore not under jurisdiction of the Interstate Commerce commission. The federal body refused to withdraw. Illinois Central officials contend the higher fares are needed to offset losses of some 5 million dollars in suburban operations, since 1947. Wayne Johnston, president of the Illinois Central, called the recommendation a disappointment. He said a 20 per cent increase would not give the railroad a fair return on its 40 million dollar investment in electrified suburban service. Johnston said that he felt the presentation the railroad made before the commissions " fully justified M its request for a bigger increase. casual clothes to classes, games and informal parties.

A second sector of the 441 million dollar system, will be opened late next wejek , thru Lake county. "We have seen the dedication of the first unit of the largest' public works program in the history of the t state," the governor said in his main address at the 'dinner in Rock-ford. " We have participated in programs which mark new economic stimulation for the cities of this area, and which in fact meet the problems of today and offer progress for tomorrow. , . Construction at Peak "This 76 mile segment now open to the public represents the best possible product of engineering ingenuity, building know-how, skilled labor, and great administrative and executive talents. It is a durable monument to free enterprise and an outstanding example of what can be accomplished thru cooperative efforts of capital, management, and labor. J "To complete this huge task, many contractors are working 20 hours a day. Construction activity has reached a peak, Of 1 million dollars a day. Contractors are paying 2 million dollars a week in wages to 18,000 persons directly employed on the project. " All of the 187 mile toll-way is integrated with Chicago's present and proposed expressway system which will ultimately provide a complete network of expressways for this metropolitan area and all of northern Illinois." Stratton replied to critics, mainly Democrats, who have protested that the tollways, to cost motorists $80,000 a day, It 0 Ait It hi ivV I km otuy CdeccrilviectSAxfp at: IMPORTER 950 North Michigan Avenue Chicago "At the Gold Coast displaced freeways which were on the program for construction with the federal government paying 90 per cent of the costs. ' " There are no substantial areas of conflict between the toll projects and the interstate expressway system provided by a 1956 act of " congress," said Stratton. " There is no obstacle to the effective coordination of these two diverse methods of going about the business of modernizing our highway system in an orderly way. t Advantage of Tollway "Here I should like to emphasize that the great advantage of our Illinois tollway system, an asset which could become available in no other1 way, is the, fact that much of it went into operation today and all of it will be in use byj the end of this year. On the other hand, completion of the interstate system in Illinois 1,600 miles estimated to cost 2 billion dollars will take 13 years and possibly longer. "It may interest you to hear that the combined highway construction program, including state and toll road projects for this calendar year, approximates 751 million dollars. Of this, the tollway work accounts for 224 million dollars. 1 " Our state primary and interstate building program totals 298 million dollars. Another 95 million dollars is motor fuel tax revenue allotted to cities, counties, and townships. Work is also going forward on 121 million dollars worth of state road and bridge projects carried over from 1957. " Our regular highway programs are employing a labor force of 60,000. Approximately 50 per cent of all road expenditures goes into the pock ets of labor, on the site and in preparing and delivering materials. It is truly an inspiring Exclusively Young "Weathered!

Give them hew latitude, new breadth of effort, and we promote history, as well as the well being of all mankind." The caravan, headed by the governor's car, crossed northern Illinois under a hot sun with clouds scudding across a blue sky. Workmen, some of the '15,000 employed in the tollway construction, waved and cheered. v Pageant Is Staged. At the Illinois highway 25 intersection north of Elgin, the governor and his party reviewed an historical pageant of ox drawn wagons', remindful that the -northwest toll-way is following the approximate route of a territorial trail between Chicago and the lead mines of Galena." At the U. S. highway 20 in terchange near Hampshire and Marengo, a program including fireworks, Indian dancers, and a high school band concert preceded the speechmaking. There was a similar demonstration at the Genoa road interchange near BeMdere. A drizzle began during the Belvidere ceremony, and there was a steady rain as the party reached the U. S. 20 interchange near Rockford. The Rockford ceremony was shortened by the weather. The governor spoke from under an umbrella. He also dedicated a small park at the interchange in honor of Adm. George M. Dufek, who is on duty at the American Antarctic station. He exchanged greetings with the admiral by telephone. Don't go j m years 'fiiq Change Jojl '58" exclusive at Benson-Rixon (Bicf.
