KOCIIKSTKlt DKMOCKAT AND CII HONK M.K, SUNDAY. NOVEMBER AO. 1011 U.S. REQUESTS SWIFT APPEAL IN ALCOA CASE Till RMAN AKNOM) Moves for Early Supreme Court Ruling N'ew York (JPK Because of the national emergency, the govern ment yesterday sought a short cut . . . to a final de cision in the Sherman antitrust law suit against th Aluminum Com- A y pany UI mtr I ? r ica. Aluminum Ltd. of Canada and 60 co-defendants. Assistant At torney Genera Thurman Arn old declared in federal court that "the im Tortance of aluminum in this emergency is such that speedy clarification of the situation through appeal and the decision of the Supreme Court should be bronght about without unnecessary delay." Judge Francis G. Caffey reserved decision on Arnolds motion to die pense with the filing of formal findings of fact and conclusions of law. Last month he ruled in a lengthy oral opinion that the gov ernment had failed to prove charges of monopolization, conspir acy and other misconduct. Arnold asked the court either to designate his ruling as final or to dismiss the government com plaint without opinion in order that the case might be taken im mediately to the TJ. S. Supreme Court. "The question is whether I have authority to do either," the court said. "If you show me a way in which I can legally get rid of this case without the usual process, 111 do it so quickly that it will take your breath away." Defense Attorney William tV. Smith of Pittsburgh, protesting Arnold's alternatives, said he believed the rights of the defendants would be jeopardized if the government's request were granted. COP Labor Club Calls for Loyalty Syracuse JF) The Industrial Republican Club of Syracuse, a 25-year old organization representing 4.200 factory workers, declaring "We are afraid it is very late," called upon President Roosevelt yesterday to create "a partnership of loyalty" in the nation to meet the present emergency. A petition, indorsed by 50 club leaders designated as "key men," said the organization was prepared to "submit to taxation, price control or whatever will save us a few years from now from losing our livelihood and our homes." The manifesto, drawn up by Paul Shipman Andrews, dean of Syracuse University's Law College, said the organizations membership included AFL, CIO and non-union workers who sought "prevention of trikea that tie-up defense production." 4 Panamanian Vessel Ends Armed Voyage Rio de Janeiro '(UP) The 6,140-ton freighter Equipoise, flying the Panamanian flag and the first armed American-owned freighter to 'reach this port since Panama revoked the bm -on-arming ships, arrived here yesterday.

Kindly mrnim rtrvtns rlya. umo coirotAfiOM against Louis (Lepke) Buchalter, one-time ruler of New York industrial rackets, Emanuel (Mendy) Weiss and Louis Capone, accused of slaying a Brooklyn candy merchant in 1936, went to a jury at 10:15 p. m. (EST) last night. After a 10-week trial, the state demanded the death penalty for the trio, charging 17 bullets were pumped into Joseph Rosen's body in the fear that he might divulge secrets about Lepke's underworld operations. Lepke already Is under sentence to terms ranging from 14 years in Leavenworth Prison for smuggling $14,000,000 worth of narcotics to from 30 years to life in Sing Sing for rackets extortion. He was brought to Brooklyn from Leavenworth for the current trial. Burton Turkus, assistant district attorney who has sent officials of Brooklyn's murder-for-profit ring to the chair, quoted in his summa- LOUIS LEPKE tion a statement by Iepke's attorney that he (Lepke) was the "czar of an industrial racket with an an nual take of a half million dollars." Pointing to the defendants, he said: "Here we have the boss, Lepke. who ordered the shooting. And here is the lieutenant, Capone, the man who planned and directed the murder of Rosen. And here is Weiss, the trigger man who fired the lethal shot." The slaying, he said, was a well-plotted, cold-blooded, brutal murder "to silence the victim and frighten others." Rosen operated a fleet of trucks in the garment trade until Lepke and Jacob (Gurrah) Shapiro, an aide, forced - him out of business, Turkus said, and "Rosen had threatened to reveal how he was shoved aside." Buchalter's defense, in which only six witnesses were called, was that Rosen's business was a financial failure and consequently unattractive to Lepke and that he had no fear of Rosen's talking. ARMY WEIGHS TANK BUILDUP Washington .T") Proposals to reinforce the Army's armored divisions largely by doubling the number of their 28-ton medium tanks were reported under etudy yeesterday by the War Department general staff. Recommendations credited' in military quarters to Maj. Gen. Jacob L. Devers, armored force chief, also included reorganization to permit the divisions to be split readily on the battlefield into two fighting groups. Based on findings in thus year's war games and reports of war observers abroad, or"M-s for a revision of the present five armored divisions and others to be lormed in the future were expected early in the new year. The present personnel strength of 12,f97 officers a. id men was ex pected to remain substantially the eame. Single Steel Company Balks At Coal Decision Agreement Xey York (AP) President Roosevelt's three-man board arbitratiii"1 the stormy union shop issue in the captive coal mines announced yesterday that all but one of the steel companies involved had a p: reed to abide by whatever decision the board makes. " Earlier in the day the Crucibl; Steel Company announced it was withholding a commitment as to whether it would abide by the forthcoming decision. Dr. John R. Steelman. representing the public on the board, emerged from a four and a half conference with John L. Lewis, president of the CIO United Mine Workers, and Benjamin F. Fairless, president of U. S. Steel Corporation, the other board member, and announced : "All of the captive mine operators, except one, and the United Mine Workers of America have advised the arbitration board as to the evidence they desire to have considered. "The Crucible Steel Company, which operates only one mine, has not yet agreed to the procedure.' Steelman said that the board would continue its deliberations until a conclusion was reached, and txdded that the arbitrators would meet again at 11 a. m. (EST) today. The board chairman said that seven steel companies had, by notifying the board as to the evidence they desired to have considered, thus signified directly to the boird their willingness to abide by its decision. PARLEYS GO ON AT BELL PLANT Buffalo .P) A group of 10 men still were in conference last night behind closed doors seeking to prevent a threatened strike at Be!I Aircraft corporation's warplan plants in Buffalo and Xiatrara Fallw. but there was no Indication, of any progress.
