S.— The Interstate commerce commission told congress today that the railroad problem cannot be solved like a cross-word puzzle. It blames the carriers' situation chiefly on increased competition in transportation and said: "The government has no maglo which enablhs it to sweep back tho tido of economic change and reverse the result." The long, academic report offer, ed no specific solution for tho railroad problem. It defended the ICC type of governmental organization and. voiced a sharp warning against politics In utility regulation. "Domination or influence of the regulatory body of either the executive or legislative branch of tho government is certain to bring It within tho political sphere with results unfortunate* ..If notri'd!|sa-- trous," the report .nald. i ••.'. Tha ICC said that\lndepenflent commissions, instead-of being irresponsible bodies as • sometimes charged, were, in fact, responsible to congress, the courts and the president. . . The report voiced opposition to the "two extreme points of' view" regarding railroad consolidations and co-ordinations—forced consolidation of the roads into one or several systems, n the one hand,, and leaving Initiative wholly with the railroads, on the other.
