sion denied an application of the
Missouri Pacific and subsidiary,
Texas and Pacific, for reconsid-
eration of the commission's order
allowing the Southern Pacific to
acquire control of the St. Louis

the “Cotton Belt.’’ That order was
issued January 12. It was hoped
to prevent the "Cotton Belt” from
having to default a bond issue due

the "Cotton Belt’’ to the Illinois
Central, but the Illinois Central
is not willing to buy now.
