Final Appeal to

Close Case With Plea for
Abrogation of Shop Crafts
1 Agreement to "Save Them,
From Bankruptcy.' - ' .

By JACK ROHAN.
( li ! Trtbime-OmhB Bra lHKd Wire,
' Chicago. Feb. 3. With a final ap
peal to the United States railway
labor wage board to "save them from
bankruptcy" by abrogating the na
tional shop crafts agreements, the
railroads today closed, their case,
after having considered in detail
nearly 800 rules which govern the re
lations of shop . employes to their
employers., t t- ? : , ;,
The board went into executive ses
sion and will continue to hold exec
utive sessions until Monday, when B.
M. Jewell ? will , present 'the union's
side ot the controversy. When
.Jewell concludes his statement the
railroads will present their rebuttal.
An early decision then is expected
fom the board. '
What was regarded as one of the
most important developments of the
day was the stand taken by a rep
reseatative group of manufacturers
and bankers who, at a meeting be
hind, closed doors discussed ways
ana means for getting the railroads
back on their fect.
A tentative plan for alleviation "of
the railroads troubles was con
sidered and among its salient fea
Speeding up of congressional ac
tion so that the railroads can get
:hc money due them since thedays
of government control.
Abrogation of the shop agreements
to such an extent that the railroads
will at least have the same oppor
tunity in a competitive labor market
which other extensive employers of
labor have. ?
Readjustment of freight and pas
senger tariffs so that the roads can
get t volume of business large
enough to sustain them. . 4 .
Readjustment of wages based on
decease in the cost of living, this
to be gradual and come only as
livinsr costs fall.
The ' railroad presidents made it
plain that they were "prepared to
go the limit to get the following
concessions from the labor board:
. First: Abrogation of the national
