Where shipments originating in Canada moved to delivery points in the United States on combination through rates, an award of reparation based on a finding by the Interstate Commerce Commission that the proportional rate for that part of the route from the international boundary to destination was unjust and unreasonable in violation of the Act cannot be sustained in the absence of claim or finding that the through rate was unreasonable.
