i Others fined in police court over Authority To Act Against Chains WASHINGTON UP) TN preme court upheld today restrictions imposed by the communications commission on chain broad casting. Justice Frankfurter delivered tha to 2 decision on a challenge of the regulations by the National Broadcasting and the Columbia Broadcasting System, Inc. Among other things, the broadcasting companies contended the regulations would prevent a station from granting an option to a network organization for any period of its broadcasting time. The companies also asserted that regulations barring exclusive eon- tracts with affiliated stations had caused the networks "drastic damage." Justices Murphy and Roberts dissented, while Justices Black and Rutledge did not participate la the decision. Frankfurter said that "the torn-muni cations act of 1934 authorized the-commission to promulgate regulations designed to correct tha abuses disclosed by its investigation of chain broadcasting." "Our duty," the majority opinion added, "is st sn end when we find that the action of the commission was based upon findings' supported by evidence, and was made pursuant to authority granted by congress.

"It la not for us to say that the public interest' will be furthered or retarded by the chain broadcasting regulations. "The responsibility belongs to the congress for the grant of valid legislative authority, and to tha commission for its exercise."

"I can use the other hand," she said, and shifting her pint bottle of Niagara river water with Ks 75 yards of red, white and Jacketing to her right hand, she sent the third vessel In line splashing into Lake Superior. "J'al cesse la bouteUle," (I have broken the bottle) Annette exclaimed In French aa she chirsten-ed the first vessel. The others followed In alphabetical order: Ceclle, Emilie, Marie, and Yvonne.

Eugene Casey, executive assistant to President Roosevelt, declared Mr. Roosevelt had asked him to emphasize that teamwork such as exhibited by the launching, would win the war. Such teamwork, Casey said, is the basis for the relationship between the United Nations. PACTS (Continued from Page 1) chairman of the ways and means committee, declared that the trade-act vote gave republicans a chance "to forever dispell the charge that they are isolationists." Dough ton said the issue was: "Shall continue along the enlightened and progressive course which recognizes that our last hope civilization lie in the development of international harmony among a family of nations, or shall we revert to the policy of nearsighted selfishness which has proved so disastrous in the past? We are called upon to decide between a wise and farslghted program of International co-operation and the thoroughly discredited policy of Isolation." In a speech prepared for delivery after Doughton, Representative Knutson (R-Minn.) said "the his tory of the trade act has been a succession of dismal failures." Seeking to apply congressiopal veto powers to the president's trade pacts, republicans charged that the act in its present form vio lates the Constitution 4y delegating to the executive the tariff and treaty-making powers of congress.

They claimed sufficient strength to "recapture" theae powera Doughton praising admlnistra Hon of the law by Secretary of State Hull, said "the trade agreements program has contributed very materially to a healthy restoration of our foreign trade and has accomplished this beneficial result without crippling any branch of American economic life." He added: "Among the strongest reasons why this measure should be supported on both sides of the chamber is the fact that the axis powers want It defeated. -VJ "They know that defeat of this bill could be seized on by their propagandists as evidence of disunitydisunity among Americans and disunity among the United Nations. There is no us mincing words about It."

FRANCO MAKES PEACE APPEAL Second Spanish Peace Feeler In Less Than Month MADRID UP1 Generalissimo Francisco Franco made a clear appeal for world peace Sunday night in Almeria, declaring neither the axis nor the allies could de stroy tne other arm "it is sense less to delay the peace." It was the second Spanish peace feeler in less than a month. On April 16, Count Gen.

Francisco Gomez Jordana, the foreign min ister, appealed for peace in an address at Barcelona. (Franco is indebted to both Italy and Germany for help in the apanisn civil war ana has proclaimed his friendship for the axis. (The speech was made as axis resistance in Tunisia appeared near an end and Hitler and Mussolini were preparing to withstand allied assaults on the European conti nent. (London's reaction to Franco's peace feeler was a polite yawn. newspapers gave it little space, since their headlines were too thick with victories to leave much room for talk of quitting.

No British official would suggest an alteration of the allied policy of "unconditional surrender," pro nounced at Casablanca). "Those of us who witness the struggle it sense. less to delay the peace," Franco declared. University ERC Units Leave for Army Duty A' group of nine University of Iowa students in the army E. R.

C. started reporting Saturday for the service. There are 177 tnen alto gather from the university ordered to duty between now and May 13.

That wastes seeds.

"In order for us to get by this year, it Is absolutely necessary that no seed be wasted," says riculture department. He reports the seed business booming, with sale breaking all record, and estimates the whole sale value will top 100 million dol- lars, 10 million mora than a ago. Meanwhile the flower-seed business haa fallen off, indicating that many pre-war flower growers now are turning to vegetables. Last month, Edler aays, many people may have been prevented from planting by cold weather. So the demand ia expected to rise as temperature climbs.

Nazarene Church Evangelists the Home Fro Seed Intelligently and Sparingly The Weather Almanac THE REV. AND SIRS. So far there has been no general seed shortage. But at the agriculture department it was said the supply of such, kinds of seeds as onions, carrots, beets has been shorter than others and for that reason their export has been cut Since this year there probably are millions of Victory gardeners for the first time sticking seeds Into the earth, the possibility of waste is greater than usual. Even farmers have trouble gauging just how many seeds to put into a row of vegetables.

So the Victory gardeners can help by following instructions on their seed packages and not over-sowing. Vegetables growing too thickly mut be thinned out before they BT JAMES MARLOW AND GEORGE ZDCLKE -i WASHINGTON OrV-The man with the hoe rates a pat on the back but hell get two pats If he's careful with those vegetable seeds. This is a record year in many fields including war production, shipbuilding and batUefront fighting. It also is a record breaker In vegetable seeds and amateur (Victory) gardens. Because vegetable seeds mean food at a time when American food has to be spared among Americans and their allies, the agriculture department urges car in the way they are used.

Not that there won't be enough seeds to go but the experts say most amateurs use too many seeds. i tbWA CITT WEATHKR Continued cool this afternunn. tonight and Tuesday forenoon. i For Iowa: latermittent light ram east and south-central portion tin r-teraoon and tonight, continuing in southeast and extreme east portion Tuesday forenoon.
