He offered an amendment to exempt the widow's share of the estate but Senator E. R. Hicklin of Louisa county said he would submit a revised amendment this afternoon. Would Reduce Taxes Senator C. F.

Elliott, Scott, providing that the plants be paid for out of past, or future earnings, but .-not'liy taxation; and that plants may be established only after a. referendum at which the contract price, times of payment and proposed rates are presented to the voters.

He said that all he asked was competition for the utilities and rates that were fair and right. He declared that Gov. Dan Turner was for such a program. Representative L. B. FoVsling of Woodbury county advocated the amendment declaring . that it was right to have the people pass on such a proposal and he believed the governor would favor such a referendum. The house also passed the Booth bill legalizing assessments in certain places. TWO GUN BANDIT HOLDS UP TRAIN Seven Passengers Robbed o $300 on Southbound Limited.

(A Radio Corporation of America SubiiJiary) COURT REVERSES BAKER DECISION (Continued From Page 1). sued an enjoining order against the other on the ground that testimony showed they had diagnosed and treated cancer after March 14. In the supreme court opinion handed down today the court admitted that the record showed no occasion on which Baker actually administered the cancer treatment but it added, "It is enough if it be shown that the appellee prescribed the medicine or the treatment to be given the patient." The opinion was written by Justice Truman S. Stevens. Practice By Firm. While admitting Baker's right t(. sell a proprietary medicine inc court added, "this right does not, however, authorize him either to prescribe or administer such proprietary medicines to patients. Discussing the trial record in the case, the supreme court said no one had been called in as a witness by either side who was apparently able to explain the exact course of procedure by which the secret formula of either Baker or Hoxsey was procured or furnished for use in the Institute. It further said that all financial arrangements were made directly with the institute administration and not with the individual doctors. It added that this '^constituted the practice of medicine by the institute, an act which the supreme court held illegal in a decision a few weeks ago applying to the Bailey dental company of Des Moines, a corporation. Discussion Unnecessary. The opinion, after setting forth the reasons for the reversal of Judge Ely's decision, said: "We feel that further discussion of any of the propositions urged and discussed by the respective parties is unnecessary, and that the judgment of the court dismissing the petition as to Appelle Baker cannot be sustained. "The judgment and decree is, therefore, reversed and the case remanded to the district court for decree' in harmony with this opinion, or i£ counsel prefer, a decree may be entered in this court permanently enjoining appellee from practicing medicine without a license. The supreme court referred to one case described In the trial record as evidence that Baker had prescribed and directed the treatment of a patient. Case of Johnson. The case, offered in the testimony of Hoxsey, was that Magnus Johnson had been treated at the institute by Hoxsey and had become numb from the effects of the treatment. Hoxsey testified that Baker had then weakened the medicine and told him to try it again, watching the effects closely. "Clearly, if the incident referred to in the testimony of Hoxsey X X X is to he believed," the opinion said, "The appellee prescribed the medicine and, in. effect, directed the treatment to be administered."' The court upheld Judge Ely's action in dismissing" defense motion charging a misjoinder of defendants. Under the decision, a new decree must be issued including Baker in the list of those enjoined or, upon the agreement of interested parties, a. permanent injunction may be entered in the supreme court. Charles P. Hanley, attorney for Baker, said that a petition for a rehearing of the case by supreme court would be filed. .
