OT1IMAN United Prrss Klnff Correspnmicnl WASHINGTON, Jan. 11. (UP) — The question before the court is whether n fellow can build lilmscll an island at sea, patent it. and so claim American soverignity to it and lhc water for three miles around. If so, what's to slop him from building a chain of islands around the world and calling the whole works tiic United Stales of America? Hey. Slate Department? Any suggestions, Uniled Nations? The U. S. Court of Customs and Patent appeals, consisting 'of five blark-robcd Judges in a mahogany- lined courtroom far back In a corner of the Inlcnxil Revenue Building, is trying to figure that one out now. Attorney Randolph 11. Cousins f:ew down from New York to represent John W. Plude, the Hous„,,,«,, ,i l0 "' Tcx - seophyslcist and wonlri- akingco.of Leach- h, 0 isl , lnrt b , lil( , cr , In his bailie with Patents. Oonu did his talking through E. L. Reynolds of lhc solicitor's office. Flude's idea is simple cnoii^h. There is oil under the sea. One way LO get it is building an island ove,- the oil pool and llien riiill a well in Ihe usual way. Only now you're out on your island in the ocean and If oil is gushing fr ri m the middle of 11. odds arc t«at come other nation'll ride up in a batltcshlp, chase you off, and plant its own flag. Pludc applied consequently for a patent on his invention to increase the size of the United Stales by building islands around tile, edges. He figured that wo-jin pio- tect him from piralcs. Tlie patent office said an island Is an island and you can't patent it. The Inventor retorlcd Ilia! his kind of island was soinelliiug sixj- cial. Commissioner Ooim replied through his lawyers that the State Department might not '.ike the I Casper Ontn ; -, r llu- nomvniMionor oil Idea. Plude said so \\hat? Tiic government said well \vhal' good was a U. S. patent on a dingus pumping dirt at sen oiil- sldo the Uniled Slates? Fludc sa^. fiddle-faddle; as soon as ills island reached the Mirfarc of lhc water It would be a part, of llie U.S.A. The patent office lurncd him <to'*'n. oo did Ihe board ^*( paten! appeals. He filed nolicc of a further appeal to the court of customs and parent apix:alj. The five gray-haired judge?, two of -.vhorn were appointed by the Into Pruoidcnl Harding and all of whom work in almost tolal obscur- i'y insofar as the public is concerned, waited expectantly in Ihclr handsome 1:1 Uc courtroom. Attorney Cousins hardly had bc- Eun his argument before one of Ihe Judges enquired: "If we granted this patent, couldn't we claim sovereignty around the world?" "If we built enough Islands, we could." rrplicil Cousins. Another jurist remarked that many people had built Islands but never asked for patents on them. Cuiu.lm said this was his client's ?ood luck. Presiding Judge Klnis J. Gnnutt wondered whether Cousins had conferred with the unHcd Nations. "Mot yet." Cousins replied. Ku ridded that international politicians and, or the Slate Department, had no right to say whether Fludc could patent an island. The Jurists agreed. They said they'd decide the case on the law. with no tlioughl whatever about the Uleas of Secretary of Slate George Marshall. "1 rton'l know abcul global strategy." said iinlciTt office lawyer Reynolds, "J>ut I rtp know you can't Imcnt an Island." Lawyer Cousins sairt _lic bexged to differ. You can Invent an Island. Judge Grurelt said Ihe court would decide that.

Ball's bill would forbid on intcr- niillonal union lo coerce a subsidiary unit Into seeking specific coh- iract dcinanris. H also would pro- dbil conspiracy of bargaining units to seek the same terms. Pepper, one of the sponsors of'tho proposal for an Investigating commission, expressed fenr that Ball's plan would destroy national unions and weaken the bargaining strength of labor. T. I.
