' -Justice Rutledge delivered the court's 5-4 opinion. Justice Roberts wrote a,dissenting opinion in ·which Chief justice Stone "and Justices Reed and Frankfurter concurred. R. J. Thomas, Detroit, a CIO vice president and president of the United Automobile Workers, challenged validity of the statute.

The 2nd federal circuit court upheld the order. Western Union "·contended before the supreme court that congress did not Intend to require telegraph companies to cease employing messengers under 16. It argued the lower courts were wrong in deciding that telegrams are "goods" and are "shipped" in . commerce and a telegraph company Is a "producer" of messages.

Hugh B. Cox, assistant solicitor general, began the government ar- ruments for an Injunction In the xmrtroom of Federal Judge Philip Z. Sullivan, packed with leading Chicago lawyers and virtually all the principals In the company- labor-governmeat controversy. At the outset government and company counsel agreed to defer temporarily argument on the merits of'the case in which the government seeks a declaratory judgment to establish legality of the seizure Dec. 28. They proceeded on the injunction question itself. ! Cox said the company contended it had given no physical interference to the army forces under Maj. Gen. Joseph W. Byron but the government felt interference need not be physical and believed it had established a case of interference through affidavits filed by army officers. "The real issue is whether the United States* has the power in time of war under the statutes and the constitution to take possession of properties where an existing situation threatens the outcome of the war," Cox said. "We have here a dangerous situation which threatens the outcome of the war. , ' . 'There is no issue of confiscation here. These people (the company) are entitled to fair compensation during-" government control of the properties." Sewell L. Avery, chairman of the board of Ward's, arrived early in court with members of his staff including Clement D. Eyan, Ward's president, and H. L. Pearson, vice president and treasurer. General Byron, his labor relations officer, Lt. Col. Daniel Boland, and other staff members, also took seats in the crowded courtroom. ' Cox reviewed the wartime labor disputes settlement history. "The campaign Ward's has carried on against the machinery lor settling wartime labor disputes threatens · to break down the whole structure of that machinery," Cox said. "Once labor becomes convinced that any employer or group of employers can successfully defy the war labor, machinery, then labor will come to . the conclusion that'that machinery is a one way ilobombs Probably Will Hit Sf. Y. or Washington-Ingram An East Coast Tort, U.R)--Adm. Jonas H.

He said the bombs would come in one of 3 ways: 1, surface ship; 2, Submarine; . ' 3, Long range planes., He said the bombs would probably be smaller than the V-one or V-twb lauched against Great Britain. He said the greatest danger to expect was from .fires, and tha the bombs were not expected to seriously damage any large buildings. He warned against panic, which he said could increase the damage "The next alert will be the rea McCoy," he said. t The danger area, he said, wa in a 300 mile arc from which eith er New York or Washington couU be hit. He said the Germans ha 300 submarines "at least" in the Atlantic and that the navy was prepared to keep them from coming close enough to lire, or to stop them before they fired very many, bombs. He said 6 or 8 subs would be needed to bomb New York. "I consider that adequate measures have been taken to protect New York and Washington," he said. . He said that he "didn't, think protective measures were adequate earlier," indicating that protection will be largely naval.. He made his statements at a owa's Share for ? irst Portion of Road Plan to Be 11 Million Washington, (/P)--Iowa's por- ion of the first $500,000,000 of the $1,500,000,000 highway program authorized by congress will be $11,139,077, the federal works agency revealed as it announced the state-by-state apportionment.

First Contingent of British Troops Home Frorri Burma Front London, (IP)--The first contingent of British troops from the Burma front arrived in London over the weekend on brief furloughs and sections of the press indignantly demanded M o n d a y morning why they had not been given a proper welcome. Only about 200 persons were on hand to greet the troops when they arrived at the station, and there were no bands and no flags flying. Some relatives were frankly disappointed at the Jack of fanfare, but the troops themselves seemingly shared the war office view that they did not want any of the precious time at home cut short by an official reception. All had seen long service on the Burma front, and most were granted home leaves of 28 days on pleas they wanted to start raising families.

Last word here of King Carol was that he was in Mexico. In each instance the fine was a "committed fine." This means, it was explained, that each defendant must pay his fine before becoming eligible to parole. "I do not know what kind of a minister you are," Judge Moinet told the Rev. Moraru, "but if you are a minister, you should be unfrocked." Addressing the 3 together, the judge said they "must have been very ambitious" to endeavor to help Carol "get into this country through you and to establish himself on the throne again through you." . street and that undoubtedly would lead to f evocation, of the no-strike pledge."

Thus far the number of cases probably does not exceed 300, with about 100 deaths, but Chinese and foreign agencies, including the U. S. army medical department and a Friend's Ambulance unit made up chiefly of American, British and Canadian conscientious objectors, is waging an unremitting fight to contain the disease. There have been no cases reported among American personnel, but the proximity of the threat has made it of vital concern to Chinese and American authorities. Serums and vaccines, much of them of Chinese manufacture, have been flown into the area along with a powerful American- made flea powder. The plague is transmitted by fleas carried by rats.

It may be associated with stroke, paralysis, hardening ot the arteries, Bright's Disease, Heart Trouble, and many other grave complications. Since it is the nature of the condition to grow steadily worse until properly treated, you cannot hope to escape the consequences'by ignoring it or depending on ineffectual treatments. In addition to the foregoing-, there are usually many other disorders of the system and diseases associated with High Blood Pressure. It is invariably an indication of a complication of ailments--so complicated in fact, that few doctors understand it or know how to treat it successfully. It is an unfortunate fact that most doctors sincerely believe High Blood Pressure to be definitely incurable. Yet, we have found that in the entire field of chronic ailments, none will respond more favorably to proper treatments than High Blood Pressure. Aside from drugs that temporarily reduce the blood pressure, the usual recommendation is rest in bed. Both of these procedures are for relief of symptoms only and in no way have any value in correcting the condition. Nefther is a cure. To successfully treat High Blood Pressure, it is necessary to understand the real nature of the ailment--the underlying causes anil administer the proper treatments to correctthem. Then, and not until then, can you resume your normal activities, eliminating .the constant threat of sudden death or paralysis from a stroke.
