! STATE HOUSE NEWS
"' Unless the Southern Pacific can
furnish cars, we will have to close
down indefinitely," was the substance
oi a telegram sent to the public ser
vice commission today by the Ewauna
Box company of Klamath Palls. The
telegram said further that their trade
and themselves were in distress because
of the car shortage and they asked if
there was no immediate relief in sight.
They state the car shortage is worse
than ever before and that they re
ceived only 11 cars in the past six days,
and five of these were gondolas. .They
say the conipanv is behind 122 cars
since Keptember 26 or a total of 202
cars since May 1. ,
8ecretai(y Ost render has an inter
view with the 8. P. officials scheduled
for this afternoon, and will write an
answer, sometime today telling what
can bo done in this case. It is his be
lief that the best movement in Southern
Oregoft and California may have been
completed to such an extent that cars
used in that service may be diverted to
help -the" box company. Although the
box factory needs box cars they can
make use of gondolas, and it is probable
that style-of car will meet the situa
tion for the present.
