R, SUIT Western Executives' Group Files Motion Lincoln, Nebr., (/P)--The West- rn association of Railway Execu- ives Tuesday asked for dismissal t the government's anti-trust uit, contending that a 1942 law uspended anti-trust prosecution f industrial activities deemed necessary to win the war. A motion filed in U. S. district ourt challenged the justice de- lartment's right to bring the civil uit, alleging that because of the 942 law the complaint "fails to tate a claim upon which relief an be granted" and that the court 'is without jurisdiction of the ubject matter." Named defendants in the government's suit, filed here last August, were the Association . of American Railroads, its officers and directors, the Western Association of Railway Executives and ts officers, J. P. Morgan and company, Inc., Kuhn, Loeb and company 47 western railroads and heir chief executives and more ;han a score other individuals. Counsel for the western rail- TUESDAY, JANUARY 2, 1945 roads alleged that public law No. 503, passed by congress June 11, 1942, prohibits civil anti-trust prosecutions involving activities which the war production board's chairman has certified are "requisite to the prosecution o£ the war." They contended that railroads were placed in this category March 20, 1943, when Donald M. Nelson, then WPB chairman, issued WPB certificate No. 44. In this certificate, counsel alleged, Nelson advised Attorney General Francis Biddle that he (Nelson) approved of joint action by the railroads through rate bureaus, rate conferences or other similar organizations for the "initiation and establishment of common carrier and freight forwarder rates, fares and charges and carrier and forwarder regulations and practices," subject to approval of the interstate Commerce Commission, which was given April 15, 1943. "All joint rate' action, if any, taken by the defendants since April 15, J943, has been taken through rate conferences and was and is the public interest and was and is approved by, and in compliance with certificate No. 4,4,' the motion said. It contended that the government's suit "is with reference to such joint rate action, and may not be ' commenced under the antitrust laws o£ the United States by reason of the express prohibition against the same contained in section 12 of public law No. 603."
