Of 15 Per Cent
CHICAGO, Oct. 29,-(A)-The ina-
tion's major railroads today voted to
;2ek increases in freight and pas-
senger rates calculated to ooost their
annual income by $508,000,000.
The Association of American Rail-
roads decided to ask the interstate
commerce commissun to authorize a
15 per cent hike in all freigt charges
except Liose on "coal, coke, lumber,
fruits, vegetables and sugar, for
which certain maximums will be
asked in each instance.s
The organization of all class one
carriers also elected to petition the
CIO immediately for permission to
advance coach fares in the easternu
district from thercurrent two cent
t mile rate to 2 1, cents and coach
fare in the southern district from
the present 1%/ cents basis to 2 cents
a mile.

justments between intermediate
points and increases in the round
trip, 30 day coach fares and round
trip, intermediate tourist car fares.

Deadlock Over Unanimity

LONDON, Oct. 29.-(A')-The sub-

night with a deadlock between Com-
munist Russia and the Nazi-Fascist

tugal booking agreement on Great
Britain's plan to withdraw foreign
volunteers from Spain.
The plan was accepted in its en-
tirety by Britain, France, Belgium,
Czechoslovakia and Sweden at to-
day's session. Russia accepted it with
reservations on the granting of bel-
ligerent rights to the Spanish war-
ring parties. Germany, Italy and
Portugal accepted without reserva-
tions, but on condition of unanimity.
The deadlock was on the question
of unanimity. -
The plan envisages, besides the
withdrawal of foreign soldiers from
the Spanish armies, the granting of
belligerent rights and restoration of
land and sea supervision to insure
Ivan M. Maisky, Soviet ambas-
sador, abstained from voting on the

HYDE PARK, N. Y., Oct. 29.-(P)
-President Roosevelt, starting a
series of conferences on budget bal-
ancing today, placed great emphasis
on his hopes for increasing the in-
come and purchasing power of a
third of the population he, said were
living sub-standard.
He said at a press conference that
the wages and hours and surplus
crop control measures, principal
items of business of the special ses-
sion of Congress meeting November)
15, were steps planned to lift pur-
chasing power.
At another point, he said that
newspaper stories speculating on pos-
sible revision of the capital gains
and undistributed surpluses taxes had
omitted reference to that portion of
the population with little to live on.
Particularly, the President added,
the speculation omitted mention of*
increasing the purchasing power of
thirty to forty million persons who
lack a decent standard of living now.
The President talked to newsmen
a short time before beginning an eve-
ning conference with Secretary Mor-
genthau and Under-Secretary Ma-
gill of the Treasury on the budget.
They studied ways and means of
making the Treasury's books balance
in the quite of the President's family
home and Mr. Roosevelt, answering a,
question, said beforehand that taxes
would be among 50 subjects that
probably would be discussed.
Daniel W. Bell, the Budget Direc-
tor, will come here Monday for an-
other of the budget conferences.
Before his meeting with the Treas-
ury officials, the President called on

istrator for a nationwide survey on

Railroads Put
Ten Day Limit
On Low Rates'
Refunds On Deposits Will
Be Paid Today, Monday
At Union, Samuels Says
Hundreds of students who had ex-
pected to benefit by reduced rail-
road rate tickets to their homes for
the Christmas vacation were notified
last night in announcement to the
Daily that their plans will have to
ie altered because of a reduction in
the time limit on return trips.
Approximately 600 persons who
had payed one dollar deposits on
their fares to the Michigan Railroad
ind Excursion Co. will be able to re-
ceive refunds today in the Union from
9 to 12 a.m. and 1 to 5 p.m., ac-
cording to Richard Samuels, '39, head
of the organization.
Refunds will also be made from
1 to 5 p.m. Monday at the Union
ticket office, Samuels announced.
The same lower rates that were
announced will prevail although
there will be only 10 days in which to
complete return trips. Last year the
period in which special excursion
tickets for students were valid ex-
tended from Dec. 11 to Jan. 10.
Because this year the Christmas
vacation for students will last more
than 10 days, students face the choice
of returning to Ann Arbor earlier
than usual or finding other cheap
means of transportation.
The special excursion period of 10
days is the rule and more than that
amount, the exception, according to
Mr. B. W. Holden, an employe of
the Michigan Central Railroad, who
was notified of the changed time
limit yesterday by the Trunk Line

Association, representing railroads

Strong sentiment developed in the
