Bill Wins
In Senate
PoWer Voted PUC
To Bar Service
Associated Press Writer
The Oregon Senate pass
ed 22-8 Monday a bill to
give the Public Utilities
Commissioner authority to
prevent railroads irom re
during passenger service. .
, The bill, which' goes to the
House,, is the outgrowth of the
suspension by the Southern Paci
fic railrovd two years ago of its
passenger service to Southern
Charles H. Heltzel, . then Public
Utilities Commissioner, tried to
block discontinuance of that serv
ice, but the courts ' ruled he had
no power in the case.
Must Give 20 Days Notice
The new legislation provides
that when a railroad plans to
reduce passenger service, it must
give 20 days notice. During that
20 days the public utilities com
missioner can noia Hearings at
which the railroad must- provide
that such reduction is in the public
interest. Both sides could appeal to
the courts.
Sen. Philip S. Lowry (R), Med
ford. told the Senate that . the
Southern Pacific has agreed to the
bill, which provides the same type
of regulation that now is in effect
in California.
"Under present law," he said,
"once passenger service has been
abandoned, it is very difficult to
restore it."
He denied that railroads ae
. losing much money on their pas
' senger business, asserting "the
passenger deficits .are compiled
under ancient formulas of the
Interstate Commerce Commis
sion. "I fear that the United Slates
could be weakened in a war by
further passenger service reduc
Too Late to Aid South
Lowry said that while the biirf'
comes too late to solve the South
ern Oregon problem, he sponsored
the bill for the best interests of
the rest df the' state.
Sen. Dan -Dimick (D), Rose
burg, said "this problem became
acute in Southern Oregon, and our
interest is to protect the rest of
tne state."

It was the third indictment re
turned against the newsman by
the vice probing Multnomah coun

been charged with another wire
tap violation and with malicious
procurement of a search warrant.
All three charges Were based
on a raid last May 18 on the home

five reels of tape recordings were
seized. The tapes later were the
basis for federal wire tap charges
against Clark and his employer,

Williams posted $1000 bail on the
new charge, bringing to $7000 the
