The Christmas pageant. "The
Story Wonderful" presented Sun
day night at the American Luth
eran church was witnessed by a
crowd which taxed the bouse to
capacity, with every seat and aisle
packed and more than a hundred
persons standing. Scores were ao
tually turned away, reports the
pastor, Rev. P. W. Erlksen.
Effective choral presentation of
Christmas carols, with the choir
singing from the back of the room
as an introduction to the pageant,
opened the program. A massed
chorus of all the participants in
the pageant and the chorus ap
peared in the final spectacular
Lighting- changes were care

Early Action on Proposal to
Be Sought to United -States
WASHINGTON, Dec 23 -(AP) j
Prospects for early congres
sional consideration ot legislature .
to facilitate general ralrroad con-f...
solidation were raised today, fol
lowing the promulgation Satur
day by the interstate commerce
commission of a specific plan for
wholesale unification of the .
country's transport system'.
Senator Fess, Republican,
Ohio, who has it rail consolidation .
bill pending, announced that he
would press it for action this ses-s' '.
sion in tne oeuer tnat new law
is necessary to clear away ob- .
stacies to the program.'
The Fess step represented the - -,
only additional approach to - the , ,
subject todayMn official circles..
Railroads commentators were" a.
unit in expecting that no pro-'
grams are likely to be presented
soon rrom carrier quarters ioos ;
ing toward the linking of any
group of carriers under the plan.
It was pointed ont that the le
gal and operating staffs of all the
carriers must have weeks for
study of the details; that only
three or four railroad groups. in
tire country are actually seeking
to take advantage of the presents-
provision of law permitting con
solidation; and that the commis
sion plan seriously modifies all
the rail merger projects that have
been actually advanced.
