PA01TEK BLTTHEVILLE (ARK.) COT75IER JTEWS MONDAY, NOVEMBER T, 19M Senate Anti-Trust Committee Begins GM Probe Tomorrow Br JAMES MARLOW Awoclated Pres» News Analyst WASHINGTON (AP) — That economic giant straddling the continent, General Motors, will undergo a four-weeks' examination which may disclose a great deal about GM and per^ ^1%Z" Beaded by Sen. O'Mahoney ,D- Wyo) wm hold hearings on GM. Witnesses will be GM executives, economists, and people who deal with GM. O'Mahoney says this is not in investigation. One man who will be working with O'Mahoney on this case said the hearings are not an effort to show there is anything illegal about GM or it» way of doing business. Why then the hearings at all? The subcommittee says it wants to know how OM got so big. It wants also to lind out what effect such bigness has on the economy. The subcommittee is not singling out GM for attention. It has questioned other automakers this year. J91Z Million Profit The most startling evidence of OM's bigness was its announcement in late October that its total sales the first nine months of 19o5 were 9" 2 billion dollars and its profits 912 million. That's the highest dollar profit figure for any corporation in American history and the figure is certain to go over one billion by year's end. Recent mergers in the auto industry—not involving GM—reduced the number of individual companies from nine to six and O'Mahoney has raised the question of whether some of these survivors may not go out of business, too. But GM won't be a casualty. O'Mahoney summed up some of GM's business this way: "It produces more passenger cars than all the other five firms combined: it is by far the most important producer of auto parts and accessories; It Is a principal producer of trucks, buses, diesel engines and locomotives; it is a major factor in the manufacture of refrigerators, stoves, air condition- Ing equipment, and other things; and it is the biggest supplier of goods bought by the government. Practice* With Dealer* While this is an Impressive picture of the biggest corporation in history, O'Mahoney's committee wants to look Into the practices 1,1 Welcome Mat Is Out at Stearns SENDAI, Japan Iff}— M. Sgt. Ernest Stearns, Preewater, Ore., noted Saturday his was the only home in the neighborhood not looted in the past, four days. He posted this sign: "Welcome burglars—please don't damage the premises. The door Is unlocked. There's coffee on the stove. Cream in the refrigerator. All my valuables are stored elsewhere. "Look all you wish, but please be as quiet as possible. I need my sleep. Thank you." GM and other automakers with the dealers who sell their cars. O'Mahoney said last week complaints have been received that GM and other producers forced dealers to buy unwanted cars, parts and accessories and even dictated the size and type of their business places, advertising, and accounting. When O'Mahoney's group gets through with all this examination of the auto industry, what will it do with the information? Will it change anything? The subcommittee itself can't do anything except report its findings. If it thinks there should be controls written into law over huge corporations, it can recommend that to Congress. But it would be a good guess — in a time of prosperity like this — that Congress would think quite a while before tinkering with something as big as the auto industry.

The paper called press handling of the story "The bankruptcy of the century." L'Osservatore said the press lacked discretion and chivalry in spotlighting her activities Witt! Group Capt. Peter Townsend as though she were a stage or screen star. It also said newspapers failed to emphasize the moral aspects involved and the "noble" message of the princess In announcing she would not marry Townsend. The L'Osservatorfe article, written by Count Giuseppe Dalla Torre, the publication's managing editor, said there was an "imprudent" intrusion of privacy, despite the rigorious silence of the royal family and "the voices oJ serious and restrained newspapers which warned of the danger of adverse surprises." j In the "Journalistic and moral bankruptcy which followed the noble message of Princess Margaret," L'Osservatore said, the reasons given j in the message , were either passed over or forgotten "in order to refuse the unexpected decision the poetry] of a free sentiment, of a free devotion to God. and to substitute for this speculation now considered proper to every reason of state."

"Bill" Walker Facts About Lawyers -— and the Law We have lawyers because there are law . . . and courts . . . and judges. Each is a vital factor in protecting the fundamental rights of every citizen. "Law" consists of Hie rules of conduct prescribed by our national stale and local governments. Laws exist to protect our persons and our property. Lawyers are persons who have devoted their lives to the job of learning - - - through specialized study and experience - - - as much as possible about the many laws we have and what they mean ... in order that they may advise and protect the rights and liberties of their clients. Today, to be licensed in Arkansas a lawyer must have completed a minimum of two years of preparatory college work, plus three years devoted exclusively to the study of law. The majority of young men aspiring to the law today take either six or seven years college work, including their specialized legal training. Upon graduation from an approved law school, the prospective lawyer is subjected to rigorous examinations in many fields of law prepared by the State Board of Bar Examiners. If he passes and becomes admitted to practice law, he is required to observe the Canons of Ethics of the Legal Profession, which demand of him conduct of the highest professional character.
