Union Picketers Must Pay Fines, Serve Sentences, High Court Rules Economic Advisers Socking Way to Aid South'* Development WASHINGTON, June Jl. The President's Council of Economic Advisers today studied • proposed new pattern of federal policy to develop the farms and factories of the South. The report was prepared at the council's request by the National Planning Association. Its emphasis. the association said, Is on policies to serve "the best interests of the entire nation" rather than the special interest of the South. The recommendations include: 1. An increase In personal income tax exemptions to boost the buying power of consumers. 2. Direct subsidies to farmers under a support system somewhat similar to the "Brannan plan" but. In 1U authors' opinion, "less costly." 3. Measures to check the flight of capital from the South If a recession strikes; also, the location of an "appropriate" share of defense industries In the South. 4. An increase in the minimum wage between 60 and 75 cents. but on a flexible system to permit changes If the general price level moves up or down. 5. Expanded programs of conservation and development of soil, forest, water, mineral and other resources. This would include more valley "authorities" if surveys showed them to be economically sound. LITTLE ROCK, June 21. <JPt— The Arkansas Supreme Court yesterday refuted to set aside fines and Jill sentences of sin union members cited for contempt of the Washington Chancery Court for violating an Injunction against picketing. The court said Chancellor John K. Butt hid the right to forbid the men to "picket until their legal right to do so In the circumstances should be determined." Cited by the chancellor were C. E. Carries, business manager, and K. 8. Kreilzer, J. M. Ttwrmbeiry. Jack Winters, Jesse Barnes and Robert Eaton, members of the International Hod-carriers Building and Common Laborers Union. They were arrested for picketing construction of an Ozark Rural Electrification Cooperative building in Fayetteville on which Carl Tune was the contractor. Tune filed the original complaint charging the union caused the strike and that unlawful picketing was being carried on. The Supreme Court said the record shows a temporary restraining order was Issued "with consent of the defendants." When picketing continued. Carnes and the five union members were cited for contempt and each finec f5f) and sentenced to ten days In The defendants contended that the lower court was without Jurisdiction because no Injunction bond was Issued. The Supreme Court said, however, that "the defendants were not certain respecting their rights and required time to confer with counsel hence the delay was to their advantage." It also was insisted that the court could not prohibit peaceful picketing. On that point the high court said "where a court has jurisdiction of the subject matter ind the person, It may exercise Its apparent power even though error is committed in doing so." The defendants also denied thai the Injunction was by consent. The Supreme Court said if that, was so. It should have been shown "through a bystanders' bill of exceptions. Our statutes protect litigants against such mistakes and give preferential treatment to the bill." The ruling concluded that "the situation narrows down to the simple proposition that the defendants chase to follow advice ol persons who were mistaken regarding the legal effect of what they proposed to do. In taking this course they assumed a responsibility for that mistake, and their misfortune mast be left to the sound discretion of the trial court."
