IP Cvlbertsoa's Summary VS Account. a a a a a a a a a G.I. Prisoner A Hacks Army Court-Martial The verdict of a military court-martial and procedure in the court, and perhaps all courts-martial in the future, were put before Federal District Court here yesterday by John R. P. Neal, prisoner in the disciplinary barracks at Fort Knox.

Neal asked for a habeas curpus on the grounds that his trial developed error, irregularities, and prejudicial actions. He was convicted a year ago at Camp Croft, S. C-. and claims his confinement deprives him of his liberty without due process of law. He asserts the commanding officer ordered his dishonorable discharge held in abeyance until the sentence of two years is served.

Because of this action, he asserts, the sentence Ts not subject to review by the Board of Review or the judge advocate general of the Army.

Bcrffc Warns Of Economic Concentration Ruinr Monopolies Grovinp, He Asserts Chicago.

Dec. ,11 Assistant Atiorney General Wendell Berge asserted tonight that "The concentration of economic power in this country is increasing above any previous crest of monopoly in our history." In an address to the new Council of American Business the head of the Justice Department's Antitrust Division said: "The decrease of independent business will continue unless the causes of concentration are removed and the power of monopoly is broken. -As it stands at the present moment, the American people do not have control of their economic destiny, and as time goes on they may lose their freedom of opportunity if the trend to concentration is not checked." Monopoly Is 'Real Threat. Berge said the "real source of the threat to free enterprise, sbout which the Republican leaders are so concerned, lies in monopolistic control over our great industries." He then referred to "insistent demands for curbs upon the power and activities of labor unions," and said: -I recognize, as many must, that certain labor union abuses have created a serious problem. Some new legislation may be necessary to assist in solving the problem.

"But unless we decide to appropriate sufficient funds to enforce the antitrust laws against business monopoly, we should not expect to impose new restraints upon labor."
