Chicago. 111.—What the railroads de-
clare will amount to an annual sav-
ing of fSO.OOO.OuO in normal traffic is
lopped off the pay of 300,000 railroad
clerks, freight handlers, express and
station employes in a decision mailt1
public, by the United States Railroad
Board Sunday, in abrogating certain
overtime working agreements and
making important changes in others.
The most important changes in the
rules are abolition of time and a-half
overtime until nine hours have been
worked and the re-establishment of a
pre war time rule allowing railroads to
employ men on "split trick" in small
towns where work is intermittent.
The "split trick" rule will not only
save railroads millions of dollars an-
nually, it is stated, but it will also
mean the reopening of m: ny small
railroad stations which have been
closed because of excessive cost of
maintaining them under the national
war-time agreements. In other words,
the decision puts the "milk station"
back on the rail.oad schedule.
The board reached its decision only
after lengthy deliberations and the
document is featured by the most pro
nounced split in opiniion of any de-
cision yet given out. There is a dis-
senting opinion signed by Samuel Big-
gins, J. II Elliott and Horace Baker,
railroad members of the hoard, be
cause the majority did not decide
upon ten hours before overtime be
gan instead of nine, and an answer
to this dissenting opinion, in which
the mino.ity is charged with being
"obviously in error," is sigi'ed by Ben
W. Hooper and G. W. W. Hangar, pub-
lic members, and W. I,. McMenimen
labor members. A. O. Wharton, labor
member, while voting wit!: the ma-
jority, did not sign with them, and
filed a separate statement because lie
insisted on overtime after eight hours.
Chairman Barton did not sign ei her
statement and II. W. Phillips, labor
member, did not take part in the de-
liberations because of illness.

returned to private ownership.
POPE BENODiCT XV. OSES
EARLY SUNDAY MORNING
Rome.—Arrayed in full cononicals,
with golden miter, sloves and ring,
the body of Benedict XV. lies in state
in the throne room, on the floor im-
mediately below the apartment in
which he died.
For many hours Sunday to the room
whe:e the Pontiff had made his fight
for life came a continuous stream of
officials, representatives of foreign Na
tions, high prelates and others.
The sacred congregation convened
when the cardinals were informed of
the Pope's death. With the exception
of Cardinal Oasparri, the papal Secre-
tary of State, they gathered in Bene
diet's private apartments.
The official and semi-official Vati-
can organs give 6 o'clock as the time
of the Pope's death, and the Rome
newspapers do likewise.
One by one the bells in Rome's 400
churches joined in the havologlc sym-
phony that marked the passing of the
head of the Roman Catholic Church.
For the first time in the history of
relations between the Italian Govern-
ment and the Vatican. King Victor
Emmanuel instructed that the flags
be half masted on all Government of-
fices in observance of the death of the

Washington. General Pershing has
declined to accent a Distinguished
Service Cross voted him by the Army
Board of Awards, which Secretary
Weeks had planned to bestow on him
at a "surprise party" arranged to
•take place in the War Secretary's
office. The General discovered the
secret of the party and went imme-
diately to Mr. Weeks' house, where
the latter was at lunch, to declare
his undeservedness of the honor.

Washington.—Farm financing catne
forward prominently Friday when
Secretary Wallace announced be
would lay before the National Agricul-
tural Conference charges thi.t certain
companies loaning money on farm
mortgages were taking advantage of
the present crisis to charge "extor'
tionate" interest rates.
Meanwhile the Agricultural Depart-
ment made public information that
United States banks had outstanding
approximately $3,869,891,415 personal
and collateral loans to farms and $1,-
447,482.!t2ti in farm mortgage loans at
the end of 1!>20.
"In all lines of business," the Sec-
retary declared, "we find predatory
individuals who seek opportunities to
take advantage of the misfortunes of
others. We expect that from men of
a certain type, but it is a real shock
to note that the same sort of thing
is now being done by some insurance
companies and farm mortgage loan
companies of whom we nave u right
to expect a higher code of ethics."
These charges, he added, did not
apply to uil these companies, for
some, he said, were doing right by
and helping farmers in the present
situation. Others, however Mr. Wal-
lace asserted, "are taking advantage
of the farmers' distress to heartless-
ly extol t a rate of interest and terms
of loan which can not be justified."
Charles S. Barrett, president of the
National Farmers' 1'nion, issued a
statement in which he oeclared the
Government had "ditched" the farm

Reserve Board and other agencies, it

JAMES BRYCE, BRITISH
PEER, DIES SUNDAY
London. — Viscount James Brvce,
died at Sidmoutb Sunday. The end
came peacefully, and somewhat sud-
denly. Viscount Brvce had been stay-
ing in Sidmouth for the last three
weeks and was extremely energetic
to the last.
As a man of letters and a publicist.
Viscount Bryce was a world figure.
Outside of his own country he was
best known in the United States,
where since the early '80s his interests
had so largely centered that be was
sometimes styled an "English Yankee '
One remarkable thing repeatedly
said of him was that he knew Amer'ca
better than most Americans. His work
entitled "The History of the Ameri-
can Commonwealth" has been a stand-
ard textbook in the schools of the
United States for the last generation
—providing the spectacle of a foreign-
er instructing Americans in the work-
ing structure of their own life and
laws as De Tosfjuevllle had done to
some extent years before in hie
"Democracy in America."
Golden Bank Fails To Open.
Golden, Texas. Due to bad collec-

cording to the statement of the board
of directors the depositors will be paid
in full and the institution will proU-
ably reopen under a new charter.
