Mrs. Lillian Leroy Clark, Willison, Mr. and WORLD'S Mir Mrs, Phillip TH1ATM Knoxvlllt lems proposed railroad mergers would create in their area. Douglas and Sens. Vance Hartke and Birch Bayh of Indiana, Philip A. Hart and Pat McNamara of Michigan and Stephen M. Young of Ohio made the suggestion in a letter to the President Thursday. The senators are concerned, they said, over the probable impact of pending merger proposals on the industrial .and transportation future of the Midwest. They said answers also are needed to these important issues: •How much railroad plant will be left if the mergers are approved. —Whether the remaining facility would be adequate to meet and current and probable future needs of the Midwest's expanding population. Whether the rail- remaining road plant would be adequate to meet defense needs. ' —Whether mergers would place too much control of midwestern transportation in too few hands to be in the public interest. The senators said the proposed merger of the Pennsylvania and New York Central railroads appears to concentrate the loss of facilities in Ohio, Indiana, Illinois and Michigan. They said, "...The merger exhibits the two railroads submitted to the Interstate Commerce Commission indicate that approximately two-thirds of the total 'recurrent savings' in terminal operations would occur in these four states." "Apparently this would be achieved by substantial elimination of tracks, facilities and jobs. Additional railroad capacity could be lost through the ultimate de- of smaller mise or absorption competing railroads, as from the well as contemplated Chesapeake & Ohio-Baltimore & Ohio and Norfolk & Western-Wabash- Nickel Plate mergers and the various other merger proposals which would affect the gateway state of Illinois."
