Gets Boost From Court WASHINGTON (UPI)- Sharply increased Justice Department ac-, tivity against business mergers was suggested today by> a resounding government victory 'in the' Supreme Court in a shoe industry case. The ruling was part .of .a voluminous outpouring of opinions and various other actions which brought the high court's 1961-62 term to a close Monday. The court acted on lunch counter sit-ins, sale and mailing of Mrs. Allen Shafer In Hospital After Fall From Horse Mrs. Geneva Shafer, wife of County Commissioner Allen Shafer, remains in fair condition in Memorial hospital where she was taken 'after she was thrown from a horse Saturday afternoon on the Shafer farm near Twelve Mile.

Car Strikes Pole Northeast of City A 1955 sedan driven by Patricia Kay Martin, 16, of 618 Fulton St., was damaged an estimated $35C and a utility pole valued at $125 was destroyed in a one-car acci dent at 4:20 p.m. Monday. Investigating officers said the automobile was traveling west on county road 150 North, and wenl out of control as the driver attempted a right turn . onto road 575 East, leaving the road and crashing into the pole. Miss Martin was not injured. Investigating officers were State Trooper Richard Keyes and Deputy Sheriffs Rex Harris and Robert Kiesling. : obscene material, congressional contempt, narcotics addiction and school segregation. It: also handed down one of the most far-reaching religious freedom decisions in recent times by outlawing use of ah official state prayer in New York public schools. The justices now disperse for emergency term, J,hey will not return to the bench until Oct. I. Government Won Ruling Besides the shoe industry decision, the government a ; lso won an antitrust ruling that officials acting for corporations are subject to the stiff penalties of the Sherman antitrust law as well as the less severe Clayton antimonopoly law. The Supreme Court reinstated several Sherman Act charges against corporation' officers which were dismissed by lower courts. Chief Justice Earl Warren wrote 51 pages in the shoe case, analyzing for the first time 1950 amendments to the Clayton Act designed to plug loopholes in the 1914 statute and bring it up to date. Warren declared it was the intent of Congress to curb "tendencies toward concentration in industry" in their beginnings, "par- icularly when those tendencies are. being accelerated through ?iant steps striding across a hundred cities at a time." The opinion said , the court agreed with the government that so far as the shoe industry was concerned "this is an appropriate place at which to call a halt." The judgment means divorce* ment of the Brown Shoe Co. of St. Louis and the G. K. Kinney Co., the nation's largest retail chain. Victory o,f Sorts The Justice Department also won a victory of sorts in a price discrimination case involving two big milk distributors in the Chicago area — Bowman Dairy Co. and the Borden Co. A lower court had accepted the companies' cosl justification for price discounts to chain stores but the Supreme Court ordered more proceedings. The case is 11 years old. In the field of obscenity, the court did not act the way the Justice Department suggested. Instead, it set aside a post office order barring from the mails three 'magazines appealing to male homosexuals. The court ruled that the magazines were not offensive or indecent enough to be obscene. A minority at-., three even said the postmaster general did not have authority from Congress to determine what is too obscene to be mailed. The. court agreed to examine next term a book publishers' dial lenge to a Rhode Island commiS' sion established in 1956 to discour age sales of obscene literature The publishers are Bantam Books Inc., Dell Publishing, Co., Inc. Pocket Books, Inc., and the New American Library of World Liter ature, Inc.

With the temporary excise lax measure out of the way, the Senate was left with a sugar bill and a request to raise the ceiling on the national debt. Senate leaders hoped to call up the sugar bill Wednesday. It •would extend for five years the act that divides up the U.S. sugar market between domestic and foreign suppliers. The Senate Finance Committee Monday approved a sugar bill. It would eliminate quotas parcelled out by the House bill to 29 countries and gradually eliminate premium prices for foreign producers. . . ' The committee today turns to the debt issue. It will hear testimony from Treasury Secretary Douglas Dillon and budget director David Bell. All three of the "must" bills dealt with laws that,would expire June 30 unless extended. Other congressional news: Entertainers — Jackie Bright, national secretary of the American Guild of Variety 'Artists, was called back today to testify before tho Senate Rackets Committee. The committee, which is investi- gating charges that the AGVA was not protecting its girl em ployes, heard Bright claim tha strip teasers would not go on strike to avoid becoming B-girls Pensions — Chairman Oliri E Teague, D-Tex., of the House Vet erans Committee, called a .pend ing World War I pension bill un fair to most veterans as well as to taxpayers.

Power Loss In Parts of 3 States OMAHA, Neb. (UPI) - A new witch that proved faulty was alamed today for a two-hour power failure whii.'h affected several million persons in parts of three tales. Officials said it would take ome time to determine what went wrong with the switch at South Dakota's Fort Randall )am, cutting off 320,000 kilowatts of power to two-thirds of Iowa ind Nebraska and parts of South Dakota. It was the first time the switch had been used, an Army,Corps if Engineers official said. Coupled with failure of a 100,JOO-kilowatt generator'at Omaha, ;he interruption in power from the Fort Randall Dam caused power uppliers in adjoining states to 'go flat." . The chain reaction was "like a ine of dominoes," each causing another' failure, one official said. Omaha, Lincoln, Neb., Des Woines, Iowa, and other .cities were cut off from service, but emergency systems throughout he area prevented serious trou- jle at hospitals and other institu- ions. Strategic Air Command head- (uarters relied on its own emer- ;ency system and came through without, incident. At Omaha, thousands of persons walked the streets as everything rom traffic lights to air condi- ioning went out. They asked each other, "what happened? Why ar e the lights out? What does it mean?" Police rushed from desk duties -o jammed intersections to keep raffle moving. "My electric typewriter would not work," a secretary said, "but not having air conditioning was worst of all." Windows closed since cooling units were installed .hree years ago, opened again. Hundreds; of workers peered out at the streets from darkened of 'ices. Department stores closed their doors behind crowds described ,as panicked but really orderly." However, one clerk noted "I sold six dresses after the power wenl off."
