The congre- MILWAUKEE TRIES TWO-CENT FARE A two-cent railroad fare is being tried out on various stretches of the Milwaukee railroad to find out whether a worthwhile increase in passenger. business would result If the two : cent fare were general. The only stre.tch affected In Iowa runs from Spencer to Des Moines. Other stretches are in Minnesota and Wla- consln. A two-cent rate would mean a bfg reduction in fares. The rate now is; S.6 cents a mile. Thus a two-cent fare would cut the present rate almost In two. The present rate from gallon decided to surprise Mr. Tiede, Algona to Chicago,-for instance, is vho has served faithfully as elder since December, 1905. The surprise took place on New Year's dny after the morning services. Mr. Tiede was asked to take the ilnce of honor before the altar, and two school girls, Lucille Behnken- lorf and ETda Hintz, introduced the ubilee program by a special song, 'Be Thou Faithful Unto Death." Then followed a short address by the Rev. P. Braner. After this the :irls sangr "Take Thou My Hand and ..ead Me." Then Grandpa F. W. Hlnz Sr., only surviving charter nember of the congregation spoke a few welt-chosen words. In recognition of Mr. Tiede's services the Rev. P. Braner presented a beautiful and' impressive picture, 'Christ In Gethsemane" as a gift of the congregation. Then a trio consisting of Teacher E. Zeltz and the students, Walter Redrtel and Erwin Braner, sang "Abide With Me." Mr. Tiede was deeply moved and spoke a few words of appreciation. A large crowd attended to congratulate Mr. Tiede: about $14, but at two cents it would be less than $S. In the period from 1920-1929 the railroads lost more than a third of their passenger business. Earnings on passengers.dropped at the rate of 4'00' mflTibn dollars a year. Based on the traffic of 1920 'the decrease cost the railroads an enormous total. The railroads are now in a bad situation. Some officials believe a decrease fn rates would lead to larger use of the railroads for passenger traffic, and the Milwaukee's experiment Is therefore being watched with great Interest. It is not so many years ago since the railroads were fighting desperately to increase the rate from two cents to 3.6 cents. Now they may tiave to wage a similar fight to get permission- to < go back to the two- cent fare.. Battey Given Job. Burt, Jan. 6—Mayor C. O.
