However, the high court did not unconditionally approve either ordinance. It said a Hot Springs ordinance prohibiting Sunday operation of meat market* or grocery store.'; em ploying more than two persons is invalid, but that an operator convicted under it also was guilty under a similar state law. And another opinion held that Ine City of Rector has authority to pass an ordinance requiring inspection of telephone and electric power poles but cannot pass a revenue measure In the guise of an Inspection ordinance. In the Hot Springs case, C. J. Gray was convicted on three charges of violating the Sunday ordinance, but the Garland Circuit Court reversed the municipal court and dis- mivied the charges. The Supreme court pointed out that an old state law prohibits Sunday oceration of stores. Tilt Hot Sprin?s ordinance, the court said, is void "for the reason that It attempt 1 ! to permit stores employing less than two people lo open and operat" on Sunday." The opinion added, however, that the municipal court had Jurisdiction of charges against Gray under the slate law and "It could make no difference that the ordinance under which he was prosecuted and convicted was void as inconsistent witn the statute."

On Sunday. Vicc- Presldent Alben W. Barklcy told 30,000 at a noman Catholi sponsored rally that the American "way of life Is tile best ever found by tlie children of man." The system of two parades was followed In many cities. In Berlin and Rome the Communists got the crowds. Nearly 300.000 G'ermans marched under Red-flags in the Soviet sector of the city. Western sector rallies were small and quiet. About 10.000 Jammed the Communist demonstration In Rome. Only 15,000 attended au atitl- Communist labor demonstration. The Pope Rave May Day bless- ngs to the "entire world of workers." About 150.000 Irishmen turned out In Dublin for an anil-Communist meeting protesting the Imprisonment ol Josef Cardinal Mindszcnly and Archbishop Alojzljc Steplnac of Yugoslavia. Social Democratic demonstrations In olso, Slockliolm, Copenhagen, Brussels and Vienna swamped the Communists. Londoners Fifibl London had fist fights h Traf- Itigar Square when a do/.en persons carrying Red flags tried to violate parades. Communist Chief Harry Poliitl tried to speak but was heckled— although not as much as last week when he was driven from Devonshire by citizens infuriated by the shelling of British ships in China. Both Jews and Arabs inarched in Tel Aviv, Israel. Most of them belonged to the Socialist parties. In Calcutta, a bomb was thrown at police who broke up a Communist attempt to parade.
