SUPREME COURT tllQUOR RULING ALSO RULED LABOR BOARD HAS RIGHT WITHDRAW COURT LITIGATION WASHINGTON, Jan. 8. ^—(ff)—-The supreme court gave 1 broad power today to states to prevent the sale of intoxicating liquor. It sustained Michigan and ' ^Missouri statutes barring the Importation of alcoholic beverages from other states which .enact discriminatory legislation. Justice Brandeis, who delivered the decision, said that "the substantive) power of the state to prevent the sale of Intoxicating liquor is undoubted." No dissent was announced. Chief Justice Hughes delivered the next decision, holding that the National Labor Relations board had the right to withdraw from a circuit court litigation Involving validity of an order •gainst the Ford Motor Company. . \ The Hughes decision' affirmed L / a ruling by the federal court •r • at Covington, Ky., permitting ^•withdrawal. The labor hoard W)| sought the withdrawal after de•;•'.'• elding upon the new procedure ; In the light of a supremo court I decision oh April 25 condemning I procedure employed by Secretary I,t Wallace-in ordering a reduction r,Wof charges permitted commission 1 "merchants at Kansas City stockyards. The labor board had directed the Ford company to reinstate 29 employes and to cease interference with tho self-organization of workmen. Tho. Ford Company contended- the order was Invalid because no opportunity had been' given the concern to reply to j\n intedmedlate report by a trlCil examiner. VJ'v ..... Before proceeding to hear'Hrgu- v.. ments, the court agreed to review litigation intended to test the con- y stltutlonality of marketing prc- • visions of the 1938 Agricultural Adjustment act. A group of Georgia and • Florida tobacco growers appealed from a decision by a three-Judge federal court in Georgia upholding the provisions. It was the first case involving the new farm legislation to reach the high tribunal. The court did not rule today on- the challenge of constitutionality of; TVA's power program brought by 14 private power com'punles, nor uppn the right of Kansas and Kentucky to' ratify, after once rejecting the proposed constitutional amendment to abolish child labor. -.. No Dissent Announced No dissent was announced to the Hughes decision in the Ford labor board case. In the liquor cases, Justice Bran. . dels aid that, since ratification of the 21st amendment to the constitution (repealing prohibition), "the right of a state to prohibit or .•:, regulate the importation of intoxicating liquors is not limited by the Commerce clause." He added that "discrimination between domestic and Imported In- atlrig liquor, or between im:d intoxicating liquors, is not Ibited by the equal protection fause." -The court dismissed an attack on constitutionality of an Oklahoma conservation law providing for . spacing oil wells. The law was challenged by Russell B. Patterson, owner of a roy* ally Interest in six and one-fourtli acres of a ten-acre unit in the north Wellaton area in Lincoln county.

At great personal risk, Alvln Granger rescued five persons from a submerged automobile which had plunged • Into Icy waters after crashing through tho rails of a bridge near Orange, Texas. The highest courage of man was exemplified by his performance In repeatedly swimming to safety the unconscious victims until all had been saved. "Such, a performance of valor naturally has commanded the highest praise of his fellow citizens. Tho Texas Safety association, tho Public Saefty Department and various clvlo organizations have paid glowing tribute to Alvln Granger. "In official recognition of this Texan's feat, I, James V. Allred, governor of the State of Texas, do hereby proclaim Friday, January Gth, 1939, as Alvln Lloyd ganlzation at home and abroad for renewed efforts to fasten Japan's will on East Asia. It was an onslaught of fascist-minded elements who want a single political party for Japan, more rigid control of economic life, and a new administrative policy in China. Feeling was so Intense that In some quarters fear was expressed for the personal safety of some of the retiring ministers, especially the elderly finance minister, Selhln Ikeda. Ikeda angered extremist groups Orangor dity in Texas call and do this state to honor him upon this day j In order that his herqic deed may Inspire Texans to greater efforts In our campaign for traffic safety."

Johnny Price, who was injured in an automobile accident Wednesday was reported to be getting along very well at the Navarro Clinic Thursday, WASHINGTON, Jan. President Roosevelt nominated to the supremo court today Felix Frankfurter, the Vienna-born son of Jewish parents who Is nationally known as a "liberal." The 66-year-old Harvard law professor wlio has exerted an Indirect influence on the new deal through students sent into government service from his class rooms, was named to tho vacancy created by tho death of Justlco Benjamin N. Cardozo. Frankfurter's nomination topped the ot more than 100 Mr. Roosevelt asked the senate to con. firm for high positions In tho gov ernment. In the batch wero those of Harry L. Hopkins to be secretary of commerce and Frank Murphy to bo attorney general. Tho Hopkins and Murphy polntmontn had boeni announced days earlier. But Frankfurter's though rumored, was submitted so unexpectedly that some of the best Informed senators did not know it had left tho white house. The senate quickly referred the Frankfurter nomination to its judiciary committee, which also will consider Murphy's. Hopkins' will be sent to the commerce committee. Prior to Frankfurter's appointment, some senators had urged that a westerner bo named, since that section now Is unrepresented beyond Minnesota. But first senatorial comment was from the west, and favorable. Senator Murray (D-Mont) asserted that "Professor Frankfurter has the reputation of being a very able lawyer of the supreme court rank." Senator Capper (R-Kas) called tho appointee—whose views have fitted those President Roosevelt has termed "liberal"—a man whom the senate would confirm with little opposition. Senator Minton (D-Ind), an administration supporter, beamed "I think its great. 1 ' And Senator Wagner (D-NY) commented "an excellent appointment." Senator Taft (R-Ohio), Vandon- borg (R-Mlch) and Clark (D-Mo) declined comment on the nomination, although they praised Frankfurter's personal integrity. Rep. Thomas (R-NJ) was highly critical. He aald: "I cannot conceive of a worse appointment. Testimony was presented to tha Dies committee relative to various radical organizations, names of whose members were mentioned. Among the names was Felix Frankfurter. Tho president might as well have named Earl Browder or Harry Bridges." Speaker Bankhead predicted "the appointment will bo entirely satisfactory to the people because of his outstanding ability."

B.— {/P)— The agriculture department, speeding up Its benefit programs, has started a flow of $500,000,000 In In checks to farmers who cooperated with 193s acreage allotments. Thus farmers will get subsidy payments several months earlier than usual. These checks will be augmented In the spring and summer by $212,000,000 In price- adjustment pyaments to growers of cotton, corn, wheat, tobacco and rice.

Britain rebroadcast In Gorman and tlallan pointed passages of the address, although It likely was not heard by a great many In those countries. Highlights also were carried In newscasts to the empire. The London Dally Herald observed editorially that "With a passionate faith that puts to shame some of our tired and all- Ing ministers, President Roosevelt proclaims the great principles of a liberal civilization." The Dally Express: "A strong United States exerting her immense moral and economic might on the side of peace Is a reinforcement of every peaceful nation." The Times: "....The authentic voice of the American people, and It will be hoard with full sympathy" by those who share the American "political faith." Praise By Argentina Press. BUENOS AIRES, Jan. 5.-«P> —Tho Argentine press and commentators In Brazil praised tho congressional address of President Roosevelt, emphasizing a warning against aggression. "Roosevelt Puts tho Brakes on Dictators," and "Roosevelt Plans Salvation of Democracies from Dictatorships," wore two of tho Buenos Aires headlines. The Brazilian government, traditionally friendly toward the United States, would approve heartily the address, said a Rio De'Janeiro dispatch quoting observers there. WASHINGTON, Jan. 5.— Congreas was naked today to appropriate $908,168,851 for agriculture department activities—Including $533,000,000 In subsidies to farm- era—for the next fiscal ycnr. This would be $318,172,000 loan than this year's appropriations. President Roosevelt suggested In his budget message, however, that congress consider new taxes to meet any farm benefit payments In excess of the $533,000,000. The president's recommendations included $485,000,000 for soil conservation payments and $18,000,000, the same as last year, for payments to sugar producers complying with the requirements of the sugar control act, For tho current year, congress appropriated $500,000,000 for conservation payments. Mr. Roosevelt told congress that it ''might safely consider moderate tax Increases" for meeting any parity payments it might deem necessary. He did not indicate whether he agreed with recommendations of Secretary Wallace that processing taxes bo.Imposed, Heaviest Cut The department activity sustaining the sharpest cut was rural relief and rehabilitation, under the farm security administration. The request for this agency was $80,000,000 compared with $175,000,000 received for the current year. The president explained, however, that his recommendations for rural relief might be changed later, when congress considers tho general relief bill. It was said In congressional circles Mr, Roosevelt would Insist that congress provide some means of raising revenue to reimburse the treasury for the $212,000,000 parity payments voted for the current year. Under the budget proposal, the department would got $90,000,000— an Increase of about $10,000,000 over tho current year—for removal of surplus farm commodities. This money would be used for free distribution of farm products to relief families and for any export subsidy program which might be inaugurated. Promote Trade Relations To promote better trade relations with Latin America, Mr. Roosevelt asked congress to appropriate $250,000 to place agricultural attaches in Mexico City, Panama; Havana and Rto De Janeiro and to conduct researches for new non> competitive commodities which other nations In tho western hem- 'Ole Diz' Signs New Contract At Rumored $20,000 CHICAGO, Jan, 5.— (/P) —Jerome "Dizzy" Dean signed a 1939 con* tract with tho Chicago Cubs today at a reported salary of $20,000, the same as ho received last season.
