of rail lines will be afforded unless
the railroads agree to voluntary con-
Bolidation into a few main systems,1
the interstate commerce commission '
today warned. , '
Anticipating opposition from rail
road heads to its proposed plan of

alternative of government ownership:
"The issue of government owner-;

consolidation not prevail after due
encouragement by government auth

incentive to government ownership
will be afforded."
The commission then states invol

reduction in railroad rates lies in
