REAL ESTATE Railroads to Ask Increase In Rates WASHINGTON (UP) — The nation's major railroads asked the Interstate Commerce Commission Thursday for permission to file new freight rate tariffs reported to contain an average increase of 3 per cent. Last August the commission awarded increases of about 7 per cent to railroads operating in the eastern and western territories and 4 per cent to lines in the southern territory. At the time, the commission said it recognized that further cost increases were "imminent." It told the railroads to come in and seek further increases to cover any additional expenses. In their new petition the railroads said the freight rate increases were needed because of increased costs, particularly wage boosts and payroll taxes. In line with another recommendation of the commission, the railroads were expected to ask for a freight rate boost on a commodity by commodity basis rather than the usual overall horizontal hike, Logansport, Indiana Pharos-Tribuna Latest Market Reports INTERRUPTED RISE Aluminum output finally decline after steady postwar increase. to '52 '84 'M'57 YEAHIV DATA U1 ptiRvynoldi «»t.

Butler Says U.S. Welfare to Suffer For Missile Speedup WASHINGTON (UP) — Democratic National Chairman Paul M. Butler. South Bend, Ind., Thursday night charged that the country's welfare programs will suffer because of a "defense mess" created oy the Eisenhower Administration. Butler told the Capital Press Club, a Negro group, that in all programs affecting human welfare next year, "Mr. Eisenhower's publicity men" will "try to turn our eyes to Cape Canaveral," the na- Jon's missile testing center. He said "the refrain" will run "we need missiles" whenever programs for social secutiry, schools, health, hospitals and other human rights are brought up. The Republicans "are going to be too busy trying to clean up or cover up the missile mess, or both" to worry about progress at home, Butler charged. "We will find the very people who created our defense mess sneering at the word 'welfare'," he said. "We are going to experience a vigorous old guard onslaught against all of the programs of progress in human welfare." Butler also told the group that the record of Eisenhower and Vice-President Richard M Nixon on human rights "is a sorry one." -He said former Democratic Presidents Roosevelt and Truman paved the way for the Civil Rights legislation passed by the Democratic - controlled Congress this year. • Butler is considered a likely candidate for the Senate seat which Sen.

The Agriculture Department's first report on winter wheat production in 1958 showed a crop of 906,272,000 bushels is in prospect. This is almost 200 million bushels, or 28 per cent, more than the winter wheat harvest in 1957. It would be the fourth largest winter wheat crop of record. If such a crop materializes, and Uie spring wheat crop makes a corresponding increase in production, the entire wheat crop for 1958 would range up to 1,162,000,000 bushels.

Girard Blames Communists for Jap Trial Issue OTTAWA, 111. (UP) — William Mr. Burnettsville and Mrs. Cecil Dodt Ask School Merger Vote DELPHI—A vole in Washington township has been asked by 145 residents of that school district on the proposed merger with Burlington, Monroe and Democrat townships. The proposed consolidation of the five school townships will hinge on results of that voie, expected to be taken in late January or early February. The merger would have been officially effected on Dec. 19 if the Washington township petition for a referendum had not been filed. Representing the petitioners are sect, and disease conditions for •the remainder of the 1958 crop season. In the last 20 years, the average change in the United States production estimate from Dec. l to harvest has been 114 million bushels. The maximum change was 274 million bushels in 1953 and the minimum change was 5 million bushels in 1956. The department ascribed the increased size of the prospective crop to good weather and lessened participation in the soil bank's acreage reserve program. Wheat producers signed up only 3,900,000 acres in the acreage reserve program for tfte 1958 crop. Last year the signup was 10,700,000 acres. the petition to Alex Hardy and Samuel 0.

The fugitives were identified by Warden Alferd C. Dowd as Arthur Lewis, 41, and Boris E. Smith. Smith was sentenced from Vigo County in September, 1948, for 1-10 years on a charge of vehical theft, and to life for being a habitual criminal. Lewis was sentenced from Wayne County about the same time as Smith to 20 years for auto banditry.

Girard, a civilian less than 24 hours, made the accusation Thursday during an interview with Ottawa radio station WCMY. He arrived in Chicago Wednesday after spending more than 10 months in the limelight of an incident that went as high as the U.S. Supreme Court. He was discharged from service almost immediately. Girard, 22, said he was not able to 'talk freely" about the case and said most of the statements Issued in his name at news conferences in Japan were "supplied by the Army."
