THURSDAY, DKCKMBKR 28, liM-1 Files Brief On Freight Rales Governor Of Georgia Foresees Bright Era If Rates Equalized WASHINGTON, Dec. 28. <UP>Governor Armill of Georgia said In a brief filed In Die Supreme Court yesterday that "n new day will dawn for Georgia" if 20 railroads are forced to end freight rate differentials which, he said, are "tlls- .CTiminalory" against the Soiilh. * Arnall's brief was filed in support ol his original complaint which seeks an injunction against (lie rail- toads and damages of $11,000,000 under the Federal anti-trust laws. The court will hear oral arguments next Tuesday on whether it should lake jurisdiction over the case. Earlier, thc railroads, In four consolidated replies to Georgia's complaint, charged that th e suit was as attempt to by-pass the Inlersi-.ile Commerce Commission 'U>d that it sought, in substance. In have Ilie court "exercise the rate-making authority appropriate to the Commission." > Arnall's brief asserted Ihal thc ICC was without authority to grant any relief to Georgia since Ihc state's chief complaint was directed at, the alleged conspiracy among Ihe defendant railroads to fix nnd maintain Inequitable freight rates between points in the south and like points in the North. "This conspiracy in restraint' of trade." Arnall charged, "is not only a violation of the common law rights of Georgia njid her citizens, but, is likewise a violation of thc provisions of the aiiti-lmsl lows." Arnall said thai Georgia was not primarily interested in seeking damages "for past injuries to the state and her citizens." "What we are interested in, is the future welfare of the state and her people," lie added, "We desire to cuter upon a post-war economy which will not be hampered and curtailed by the existing conspiracy on Ihc pan of these defendants."

Tennessee also is having its share of trouble with slur center Russ Morrow on the sidelines as thc result of having an absesscd tooth yanked. Coach Join, Bainhill has Morrow resting aii,j hopes the big center will be back on his feet in the next day or two. He is working his crew of civilians behind closed gates and snorts every time anyone menliotis the odd.s against Tennessee. Biirnhill says: "We aren't oul here just for trip. We aim lo have n game."

The political campaign and the election of course interfered with concentrated effort during the summer and fall while the developments of the war, particularly the recent increased demands of war production, have made any thinking about, postwar planning seem rather premature.

Correspondent Dies In Belgium Jack Prankish Killed When Bomb Explodes Outside His Hotel A BELGIAN VILLAGE, Dec ''8 (U.P.)—A tonl dispatch reveals that a German bomb was rcspoii- biole for the death of Wjir Correspondent Jack Franklsh who had been covering the western front lor the Uniu'd Press. United Press Correspondent John B. McDermott, an old friend reveals that Frankish was killed instantly when ii bomb exploded about-18 feet from where Fiankisli was standing outside a small hotel. Tlie 30-year-old war correspondent had been Inside the hold when the planes approached. A bomb fell nearby and he and several others ran out to sec what was t'oina on. When the others heard thc roar of an approaching ' plane they ran for cover. Bui- Prankish waited a moment. He i didn't start to run unlit one ofi thc planes suddenly, swooped down end released a bomb. Three other HelKlun officers were killed, tome 20 First Army officers nnd a half dozen war | correspondents were injured sliBht- 'Ihe day.of his death, Prankish had remained at the hotel because he was exhausted from thc strain of covering the breakthrough on the First Army front burin? thesprcccdiii!?-week! Four night.s before 'bis deatli. tie had ridden some 200 miles in a jeep in bitter cold weather to file a story. Normal couiinmiii'iilioii lines had been severed. Prankish was one of Ihe first American correspondents to enter Germany. .He. had crossed the border with the troops Sept. 13 in Aachen Forest. His fellow war. correspondents say he was a fearless reporter who never allowed danger to deter him from his search for tile news. McDerinolt. who had worked with Frankish in thc United States and on the front lines, says he had n fatalistic altitude toward death. The very day before he was killed, Frankish told him. "When your number's up, that's tho time." Bavenda tribesmen, of Africa, believe coughs and colds spill over the earth from Ilie tilted crescent noon.
