As long,as there is no actual duplication ol effort--and there has been none yet, pending the outcome of the litigation in the courts--the issue dqesn't become concrete. May'je Mr. Roosevelt is just cautious about doing anything, now, because, if the courts do decide against the TVA, a highly unlikely result in the view of | many observers who have followed the case, then, the embarrassment would be eliminated and there would be no issue of duplication of facilities. · i · Assuming that there is to be a i decision confirming the right to! destroy private utility investments if! the Government so desires, then the responsibility on Mr. Roosevelt becomes even greater to make a decision that leads to peace and not more war. Obviously, the President is in a difficult spot at th? moment.

NEWS OF THE COURTS UNIONTOWN, Jan. 14.--In a lengthy opinion handed down on arguments of opposing counsel in the inter-congregational dispute at the New Salem Greek Catholic Church, Judge H. S. Dumbauld warned those to "beware" who would "resort to violence on the occasion of this election," scheduled for Sunday. The judge, in his opinion, wrnt further in warning the congregation: "So, we arc Roing to cay to you that, if you can't, in a Christian charity, resolve the difficulties that separate you, and if you can't, in peace, hold an election which your by-laws provide for, we will have a sufficient number of state police present at your meeting to sec that no violence is inflicted by the one party upon the other at that election." One faction in the church is headed by Father Knapik, Frank Cabin, Peter Stimak, John Soh, Michael Proschak, Sr., Michael Mayor, Steve Honigovski, Charles Romanchcck, John Matas and Peter Totin, who advocate worship under the canon law of the Roman Catholic Church. The other group, headed by George Stvcchak, Michael Homer, Michael Hlohincc, Jr., John 13ilko, George Gcrnot, John Magerko, Jr., and Michael Duritna, favor adhering to the rites of the Greek Catholic Church. It was this issue which split live congregation to result in subsequent court action interpolated witli fires of violence among members which was climaxed Christmas morning by a dynamite explosion and charges and counter-charges as to responsibility for tile outrage. The court denied the petition of the group opposing Father Knapik for appointment of a special master to preside over the election Sunday when officers of the church are to be elected for the ensuing year. At the present time, there are two sets c.f ofllccrs endeavoring to. function within the two camps into which the congregation has been divided. Britain Widens Police Radio. LONDON, Jan.
