On certiorari from the United States Supreme Court, held, judgment of Court of Appeals reversed and petition for mandamus denied since a finding by the Commission of undue prejudice was not inconsistent with a denial of reparation inasmuch as damages resulting from discrimination must be definitely proved and do not automatically flow from a finding of undue prejudice. lnterstate Commerce Commission v.
