Former Bugler Dies JAMES H. MORAN Supreme Court Backs U. S. in MilkTrust Case Holds Marketing Agreement Act Won't Excuse Defendants WASHINGTON, Dec. 4 UP) — The government won in the Supreme Court today in its effort to prosecute anti-trust proceedings charging a group of corporations, organizations, and individuals with conspiracy to fix milk p'ices, control the supply, and suppress competition in the Chicago iirea. Chief Justice Hughes delivered the opinion in the liti;,'&Uon—one of the major oases brought by the Department, of Justice in its recent anti-trust campaign. No dissent was announced. Case Is Limited The Chief Justice said the agri- curtural marketing agreement act "affords no grounds for construing the Sherman act as inppplicable" to the charges against the defendants. - His opinion also expressed the same view as to other j«rrn legislation enacted since the 1890 Sherman act was passed. In the Chicago milk ca^ Hughes said that "The contention of the defendants who are labi-r officials that the Sherman act does not ap ply to labor unions or labor union activities is not open on this appeal." "The district court," he explained, "did not construe the Sherman net as inapplicable to these defendants and the government's ap peal, under the restriction of the criminal appeals act, docs not present that question." Reverses District Court The decision reversed a ruling against the government by the Northern Illinois Federal District Court. The district court dismissed indictments against 57 defendants on the ground that the 1890 Sherman anti-trust act no longer applied to JamesH.Moran,Ufron Veteran Glass Employe, Dies Succumbs After Brief Illness—Worked at Owens Plant 36 Years Funeral Wednesday Native of Ireland, He Had Resided in Alton 40 Years James H.
