WHEREAS, the unwilling divorcement of independent
management and the forcible wedding of the Baltimore and
Ohio Railroad to the Pennsylvania Railroad involving the
shifting of headquarters, operating direction and other
facilities to Pennsylvania and Philadelphia and the subjec-
tion of this great transportation line to control in policy by
another system would be deeply injurious to the interests
of all Maryland, and of shareholders everywhere, as re-
cently cogently expressed by resolutions of the Chamber of
Commerce of Baltimore in opposition thereto; and

WHEREAS, the people of Maryland desire to have and
highly value the independent services of both of these great
transportation lines, the Baltimore and Ohio and the Penn-
sylvania Railroad, therefore be it

Resolved, By the General Assembly of Maryland, that it
respectfully yet most emphatically and earnestly expresses
its dissent to and protests against, the consideration or
adoption in whole or in part by the Coordinator of Trans-
portation, the Interstate Commerce Commission and other
Federal authority, of the so-called Prince Plan for the
merger or consolidation of the Baltimore and Ohio Rail-
road with the Pennsylvania Railroad, and

Resolved further, That copies of this joint resolution be
transmitted by the Secretary of the State of Maryland to
the aforesaid Coordinator of Transportation, to the Inter-
state Commerce Commission, to the Presiding Officers of
both Houses of Congress, to the United States Senators and
Representatives from Maryland, and to the President of
the United States.

Approved December 15, 1933.

NO. 2.

sioner of Maryland to confer with the Commissioner of
