THE OREGON STATESMAN,
eTery. national business organiza
tion were present, be added, and
there was unanimity of sentiment
on the matters under discussion.
Reduction Decided On
It was decided at the meeting,
he said, that railroad rates should
be reduced aa fastt as decreasing
operating costs would permit,
that it would be unwise for the
farmers to demand that control of
intrastate rates for car service be
taken from the interntate com
merce commission and that it was
wise to recognize the desire of
farmers to terminate the clause in
the Escb-Cummins law which
fixes 5 to 6 per cent as the fi
nancial return for the railroads.
Among those present at the
meeting:, he said, were representa
tives of the National Association
of Manufacturers, National Hank

Hallway Executives, Kailway

raise the weight limit for the jun

grown-up game and inviting In
the larger boys so as to make it
faster and more scientific.
The first two games will be

LSunday school teams, at 2 o'clock
and the second at 3 o'clock, be
