WASINGTON, July 23.-(1P)-Eas-
tern passenger coach fares will go up
25 per cent at midnight Sunday.
The carriers have estimated that
the half-cent-a-mile increase--mak-
Irig the new rate 2.5 cents a mile-
will bring them approximately $45,-
000,000 more revenue during an 18-
thonth trial period.
In authorizing the increase, the
Interstate Commerce Commission re-
marked that "there can be no doubt
that the applicants are in serious need
of additional revenue."
Under the new schedule, the rail-
roads will lose the privilege of col-
lecting a full nickel in instances
where the fare figures into odd cents.
After Sunday they must make their
rates to the penny.

Ratification Of Truce By
Rioth Warring States 'Is

the treaty, it was necessary for Gen-
eral Jose Estigarridia, Paraguayan
hero of the Chaco War and minister
to the United States, to fly from
Washington to Asuncion and person-
ally persuade his government to sign.
The real question behind the success
of the agreement, Professor Aiton
pointed out, is whether the endorse-
ment of Gen. Estigarribia will carry
weight with the Paraguayan people.
The fact that, under the present
provisional and revolutionary govern-
ment, which has suspended t e Para-
guayan constitution, there is no
machinery for holding plebiscites
may constitute another obstacle.
Thus when a permanent government
is set up, it can repudiate the agree-
ment, which was signed with the
understanding that it was to be ir-
revocable, Professor Aiton said.
Finally the fact that the treaty is
to be ratified before the exact boun-
daries between Bolivia and Paraguay
are decide by arbitration may also
result in repudiation by either fof the
"It should be remembered, how-
ever," Professor Aiton pointed out,
"that there are still two important
factors that point strongly to success-
ful ending of the dispute. The first is
that both nations are completely
exhausted from the bloody struggle.
Popular feeling against war is high
since over 150,000 men have already
been mowed down by machine guns
or have succumbed to the "green
death" of the tropical Chaco jungle.
The second 'is that Argentina and
Chile, supporters of Bolivia and Para-
guay respectively in the war, are
absolutely opposed to continuation
of hostilities and have been instru-
mental in forcing the two republics
to come to terms. Without their sup-
port, it would be hard for the coun-
tries to fight any longer."
"The treaty itself sets the limits
within which the boundaries will be
decided through the arbitration of
five South - American presidents,
(Argentina, Brazil, Chile, Uruguay
and Peru) and the president of the
United-States," Professor Aiton said.
"The limits of the treaty have been
so fixed that Paraguay will get the
lion's share of the Chaco territory
with the remaining territory, valu-
able for its oil wells, going to Bolivia.
Bolivia is also to get an outlet to the
Atlantic Ocean via the Paraguay,
Parana, and the De La Plata Rivers
through Paraguay's permission to use
the Paraguay River. Bolivia also is
to get the free use of Port Casado
on the Paraguay. The value of this
provision to Bolivia is purely psychol-
ogical as the Chaco territory is so
remote from the heart of the nation
that it is very unlikely that this out-
let will be used very much for com-
Thus there is a strong likelihood
that the Chaco question will finally
be decided peacefully between two
countries that have equally strong'
claims to the territory. Bolivia's claim
is historical in that at the time of
the declaration of independence of
the South American nations, it was
agreed that the boundaries of the
countries would be the same as they
were under Spain in 1910. The Chaco
region was at that time part of the
Audiencia of Charcas, now Bolivia.
Paraguay's claim is geographical. It
is based on the fact that the Chaco,
which is low lying jungle country, is
separated from Bolivia, which is
plateau country, by mountain ranges.
Thus the Chaco is really contiguous
to Paraguay, which is also low-lying
tropical country but not to Bolivia.
Leading Economists See Upswing,

(Editor's Note: Is the business slump

Jng, seeis on the way in remaining
months of 1938, in the sweeping
;majority opinion of more than a
score of leading economists.
Of. 23 who answered .an- inquiry
as to their opinion on the prospect
of business recovery, all but three
predicted improvement by the end
of the year, some with reservations.
Such near unanimity was regarded
in economic circles as unusual if not
unprecedented. It was thought par-
ticularly significant, in that opinions
were sought from a broad cross sec-i
tion of men holding varied and con-
flicting economic and social philoso-
phies, from the extreme right to the
far left, and scattered geographically
across the continent.
But several of the optimists care-
fully qualified their opinions as to
the nearness of arrival, degree of
rise, and length of the recovery move-
If the majority are correct, it will
not be a "boom." Only one used
the term "boom."
While nearly all predicted a brisk
pick-up in the consumer goods fiells,
wholesale and retail, many qualified
their optimism as to heavy industries.

fied as follows:

Hinder recovery, 2.

Many factors favoring the recov-
ery were cited. Among the most com-
monly listed, omitting government
fiscal policies (already noted) were:
Improvement in retail trade.
Rise in commodity prices, whole-
sale and retail.
Recent stock market trend.
Reduction of inventories.
