Executives said he railroads merely seek to ad vance the price of what they sell when costs they cannot control make such action imperative Due to circumstances over svhich they have no control letcher said the operating ex penses of the railroads have been neteased by nearly an nually Without an increase in the rate base the railroad industry this year will probably fall short of earning fixed charges by 100 as compared with a similar def cit of less than in 1933 The increase in operating ex penseshe said is due to a com jination of increased wages and ris ng prices ofthe materials
