But they wanted Union Pacific to continue the service for a variety of reasons ranging from sentimentality to the ship- ping of dead bodies. The hearings, conducted by the Interstate Commerce Com- mission in Utah, Idaho and Mon- tana, involved only one of more than 100 proposed discontin- uances scheduled for considera- tion this year, Union Pacific contends It Is losing money'on trains 35 and 36 between Salt Lake City and Bulte, via Ogden, Pocatello and Idaho Falls. R. B, Johnson, Omaha, U.P. passenger traffic manager, tes- tified in Salt Lake City that pas- senger traffic on the trains has declined steadily despite rail- road efforts to promote It. The railroad says It lost more than on the trains dur- ing the first nine months last year. The railroad predicts losses would he considerably greater this year since the U.S. Post Office withdrew mail han- dling from the trains in Novem- ber. U.P. said the mail service brought the most revenue. Johnson said the number of passengers last year fluctuated between 67 and 84 per trip dur- ing the heavy travel months in the summer and averaged about 50 per trip the rest of the year. Most of the witnesses testify- ing at the' ICC hearings were opposed to the discontinuance. Generally, they did not dispute that Union Pacific Is losing money, but they often contend- ed the losses are due to poor service from railroads, Some witnesses contended the. railroad has an obligation to continue the unprofitable trains as a public' duty. They argued discontinuancewould leave their areas at times such as In winter without transporta- tion, and in any event would do serious transportation and eco- nomic harm. Gov. Calvin L.

He said the result Is an In- creasing number of persons who die In Salt Lake City and Ogden and have to be sent back to their home states particular- ly southern Idaho. He said dis- continuance of trains could in- crease the cost of such trans- portation. John D. fiose, director of the Utah Travel Council, said the railroads have a responsibility to the people "in continuing to provide passenger transporta- tion especially in areas of relatively sparse population where other kinds of travel are limited." Union Pacific attorney J. J. Burchell consistently brought out In cross examination- par- ticularly of public officials that the witnesses themselves use trains 35 and 36 very rare- ly, if at all.
