Eden Party Victory Predicted LONDON W— Predictions of Con servative Victory counted in Brit- s press today as the quietest election campaign the country has .en since World War II went into s last three days. Newspapers gave the election Thursday of a new Parliament secondary attention. Fudlic interest centered on the running of the Epsom Derby Wednesday and the threat of port and rail strikes. The 17,000 member Amalgamated Stevedore and Workers Un called its men off the job to day in four major Briti3h ports — Loudon, Liverpool, Manchester and Hull. Schedule Walkout Of grover import was the threat ened strike of the Associated So ciety of Locomotive Engineers and Firemen. Next Saturday 70,000 emebrs of the society are sched uled to stage a walkout which vould tie up Britain's state-■ailroad system. Some Labor party campaigners seized on the strike issue to pre dict that continuance of a Tory nment would result in walkouts. But party officials expressed private misgivings since [he Socialists are closely identified tfth the unions and paralyzing 'alkouts at this time are no pected to sit well with strike-w Britons. Admits Gains At least one pro-Labor newspa per joined Conservative publica tions and public opinion poll; predicting that Prime Minister Eden would return for a five-yea to head the government he inherited on Winston Churchill' etirement last month. The Sunday Times, which sup ports the Conservati ves, concluded the basis of public opinion polls that the Conservatives should get a 34-seat majority in the House of Commons. The Tories held a lT-seat edge in the last 625-member House.

Hauling Costs • Every item in your family budget reflects the truth you see pictured above. Transportation enten into the cost of everything you buy. Intercity truckers get an average of about 6 cents for moving a ton of freight one mile. The Illinois Central averages less than IH cents. Trucks carry mostly freight for which they can charge high rates. Railroads carry everything, including bulk and raw materials- on which rates are low. There are also differences in manpower, fuel and equipment. A freight train rolling on steel Tails remains the most economical way yet devised to move quantities of materials and goods, from one place to another. Only railroads can haul everything for everyone so inexpensively. Last year the Illinois Central again put more than $20 million into improvement of equipment and property. We have done this every year for a long time. It's one of the ways we keep everlastingly at the job of providing you and all the people of Mid-America with economical transportation. Wayni A.
