Mrs. Ruth Melcher, police matron, said the baby, also unclothed, was found almost smothered under several quilts on a bed in the room. It also was suffering from malnutrition and exposure, she said. The woman told her, Mrs. Melcher said, that "the spirits" advised her to leave her husband and two other children, three and two years, and destroy herself and her baby. A package of razor blades was in her clothing. She was discovered by a male resident of the rcom when he arrived there about 3 a. m. He notified the hotel manager, who summoned police. Mrs. Melcher said the baby was recovering in the county children's i home.

Welsh today levied fines against four San companies Francisco and four hardwood executives named in federal grand jury in- dictments last December as operating in violation of the Sherman anti-trust act. The indictments, among several made by a special grand jury investigating Northern California building practices, accused the firms and individuals of controlling bids and establishing unreasonably high prices. Attorneys for the firms had changed their pleas from innocent to nolo contendere, thus placing them at the court's mercy. The J. R. Higgins Lumber Company was fined $1,250, and fines of $1,000 were levied against the E. L. Bruce Company Inc., White Brothers and the Inlaid Floor Company. The four executives ordered to pay $1,000 fines were Alfred J. Bowman, J. E. Higgins, jr., Frank O' C o n n e r and Charles A. Koenig.
