"MAKERS OF ICE CREAM
WILL BE LICENSED"
That. Is What Pure Food Commissioner
Foust- Told the Pennsylvania As
sociation of Ice Cream Manufac
turers at Atlantic City
.Tames Foust, Pur* Food Commission
er of tile' State, served friendly notice
on the Pennsylvania Association of Ice
Cream 'Manufacturers in Atlantic City
yesterday, that the- might as well pre
pare for the enactment of a law for the
licensing of both manufacturers and
dealers. >His remarks were received in
silence almost, as frigM as tihe ire
cream. President Crane said the man
ufacturers were in full ac.-ord with the
Comcnisjioner "s views.
Commissioner Foust led up to his an
! noun-cement by praising manufacturers
: who take pride in the purity of their
| product, and dwelling upon the grea»-
! nes;-. of Pennsylvania as an agricultural,
|as wcil as manufacturing State. The
Keystone State, he snid, had 218,000
farms of an average of 100 acres each,
and 1,000,000 dairy cows, and he be
lieved it. was the business of manu
facturers of ice cream whose product
has increased from 50,000,000 gallons
a year to 120.000,00(1 gallons to en
operate with the dairy farmers because
conservation of the milk supply is their
great problem. The number of dairy
cows has practi ally s>tood still while
i the cost of ntilk production through
feed, labor, et,has steadily increased
while the .rice of ice cream remains
essentially the same.

INCREASE OF EARNINGS
BUT NO RATE INCREASE
What the Pennsy Is Striving for as
Explained by Somo of the Principal
Officers to the Public Service Com
Vice President Dixon, .of the Penn
sylvania Railroad Company, appeared
before the Public Service CommissVjn
yesterday and explained in a general
way the efforts which tlu Pennsylvania
and other railroads are preparing to
make to carry out suggestions of the
lutersate Commerce Commission by
which the railroads can increase their
earnings. In a general way Mr. Dixon
indicated that the company's efforts
are being directed toward increasing
the earnings of both the passenger an l
freight departments in a number of
ways without making any marked in
crease in the rates.
General Passenger Agent Boyd ex
plained a number of the proposed
changes in the passenger rates of the
Pennsylvania Railroad and stated that
it had bean found necessary to make
some flight increase in the rates and
to do away with certain classes of com
mutation tickets in order to make the
passenger business remunerative to the
railroad. He explained that these
changes were being made in such a way
as not to inconvenience the patrons of
the road and that the officials were
sure that the patrons would not seri
ously object to the proposed changes,
Mr. Wright, general freight manager
explained to the Commission certain
proposed changes in freight practice
bv which charges were to be made to:
services which the railroads have here
tofore performed for nothing. Thesi
practices were the growth of years and
the Interstate Commerce Commission
had suggested to the railroads that thr
revenues could be increased by making
a charge for the services rendered
which were not included in the rate
of the company. '
Services preparatory to the Holy
Communion will be held in the Reform
ed Salem church at 7.45 o'clock to
morrow evening. There will be a ser
moil by the pastor, the Rev. Ellis N
