Ben W. Hooper ruled against evi

to show that the roads had violated
the law. and therefore have no stand

that action on cases involving three
roads, charged with violation of the
transportation act because of con
tracting shop work to outside firms,
is expected soon. The question at is

one of the most important the board

Cases against the Erie, the Indi-,

shop work to contractors, all of
whom are paying lower wages than
