SLASHING WAGES OF MEN
TO KEEP ROADS FROM RUIN
CHICAGO, Jan. 2. (U. P)
Slashes in wages of railway employes

Slates railway board. This follows a
petition presented by President Bugs
of the Atlanta, Birmingham and At
lantic railroad, asking that wnses be
reduced "to a level so as to keep the
roads from the bands of the receiver."
Hogg declared his road was losing
1 100.000 per month. He attributed this
; to wage increases umountuig to -,-400,000
annually since 1914. Other
i roads are expected to file similar pro-
i tests soon.
