Railroads Given Rate Increase 9 Per Cent Hike for South Approved WASHINGTON Inter- State Commerce Commission today gave the railroads a further freight rate increase, estimated to hike charges by about 678 million dol- lars a year. The rise is nine per cent in the South and and six per cent in the East. The order boosts rates 15 per cent above what they were at this time last year. The railroads applied last year for a 15 per cent increase. The ICC last August ruled that instead of a straight 15 per cent hike, the charges should be raised nine per cent in the East and six per cent in the South and West. Today's order, issued after re- consideration, allows the full 15 per cent -across the country. This means the rates will now be raised nine per cent in the South and Wrest and six per cent in the East. This is the 12th general freight rate increase allowed since the end of World War II. The increases may be put into effect upon 15 days' notice to the public, except for grains and grain products, on which a 30-day rate- xevision notice will be required.

Deferments To Be Re-Opened Students Will Be Affected WASHINGTON Local draft i board throughout the nation soon j must begin re-opening the cases of all youths with educational de- ferments. Officials at National Selective Service headquarters told a re- porter today this probably will in- volve upwards of 230.000 young men. probably al! 19-year-old or older. A deferment cannot be granted until the youth receives notice of induction. Under the draft law local boards can grant deferments for only one year, except for certain high school students. In cases other than edu- cational deferments, officials said, many have been limited to six- month periods. Regulations specifically require the re-opening of cases at the end of the acadetnic year for all youths granted educational deferments to attend college. As of Feb. 29 there were in that category. Under law a youth not previous- ly granted an educational defer- ment is entitled to one, upon his request, to finish an academic year he already has started in college, provided he maintains satisfactory class standing.
