BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.)' COURIER NEWS FRIDAY, DECEMBER 8, MM Decision Is Due Today in Du Pont Antitrust Case Huge Civil Suit Hoi Been Termed Biggest in US History CHICAGO (AP) — American business and the legal profession shifted their attention to a Chicago courtroom today. . Federal .Judge Walter J. La Buy planned to hand down his decision about 11 a.m. EST in what the government has termed the hiegest antitrust case in U.S. history. The government's civil suit was against E. I. du Pont de Nemours and Co., the General Motors Corp., the U.S. Rubber Co., three Du Pont holding companies and 33 j members of the Dn Pont family, j The government asked the judge, who heard the long trial without | a jury, to force the Du Ponls to j dispose of their stock interest in General Motors and U. S. Rubber. Government attorneys claimed ihe Du Fonts bought General Motors and U. S. Rubber stock so pu Pont products could be sold to those huge firms with little compe- tion Irom makers of similar prod- j ucta. Good Investments The Du Fonts contended they bought the stock in the two companies because the purchases were good investments, and asserted Du Pont salesmen had to hustle for whatever business they got from deneral Motors and U.S. Rubber. During the trial the defense said the Du Pont company owns 23 pel- cent of General Motors stock and the Du Font family owns n per cent of the U.S. Rubber stock. The government alleged the companies violated the Sherman Act by restraining trade through secret rebates and by dividing several fields of manufacturing among themselves to stifle competition. The defense denied all charges. Tom Clark, now an associate justice of the U.S. Supreme Court, was attorney general when the suit was filed In 1049. He said then that it was aimed at "breaking up the largest single concentration of economic power In the United States." Willis L. Hotchkiss. the government's chief attorney nl tlic start of the Irlal. snld It would "dwarf all previous antitrust I cases in its magnitude." The government estimated the amets of the companies Involved at more than six billion dollars. The trial began Nov. 18, 11)52.
