Ban on Billboard Tobacco Ads Upheld WASHINGTON-(fl>)-Utah's right to keep -advertisements • of cig- • arettes, cigars— all tobacco in fact— off its billboards was upheld Tuesday . by , the Supreme Court. All the justices- agreed. . Justice Brandeis dwelt upon the fact that 'such sales .methods are thrust upon the public. The .Utah statute also prohibited tobacco advertising in street cars arid by 'placards elsewhere and Justice Brandeis said they too were placed where one saw them whether he wished to or not. ' He said there as little foundation in the claim that Utah had discriminated against billboard advertising in favor of the newspapers, magazines and the radio. "In the case 'of newspapers and magazines," he said, "there must be some seeking by one who is to see and read the advertisement. The radio can be turned off but not so 'the billboard or street car placard." ; "These distinctions," • he added, "clearly place this kind of advertisement (billboard) in a position to be classified so that regulations or prohibitions may be imposed upon, all within the class. This is impossible, with respect to newspapers and magiziries.

Trying to substantiate their theory that Mrs. Christina Smith of Buffalo, N. Y., had claimed the foundling as a wedge to share in the $30,000 estate of her mother-in-law, police obtained a confession from her that the child was not hers. Wednesday the fidgeting woman in sisted to reporters that the baby, known as "Terry Tower" and the best dressed foundling ever abandoned here, was her own and that she "wanted her baby." • Mrs. Smith was held on a technical charge of kidnaping. The $30,000 estate was left by T. Guilford Dmitri of Buffalo to his widow, the income to be divided between his two sons and upon the death of either son to pass on to the son's children. One son, Dr. Chauncey Smith, husband of the woman held, died last August 5. He had married Christina Niederiter, Cleveland, 30 years his junior, in 1928 after serving a federal prison term on a narcotic charge.
