Page Six FUGITIVE ON A DUDE RANCH Arizona Republic, Phoenix, Tuesday Morning, February 18,1941 Browder's Passport Telephc by STEPHEN PAYNE COPYRI6HT 19-*O BY STEPHEN WHAT HAS HAPPENED With the connivance of her uncle, John William Smith, Nancy Smith is leaving Philadelphia for Pcrriwell's T Slash dude ranch at Jimtown, Wyo., because her socially ambitious stepmother, Pauline, insists she marry Hudson Alexander. Nancy fears Pauline will use the money Nancy inherited from her father to back him in a theatrical venture. Nancy's heiress chum Marcla Farnsworth wires the ranch for a reservation, using her own name, confirmation to go to "\Vm. F. Waller" at Smith's office. Donald Sturgis, young garage mechanic, jumps at Smith's idea that he get a job at the ranch and look after Nancy. Smith gives Don expense money but in a crowd Smoothie Dick, Alexander's tool, "lifts" Don's roll and Smith's wallet. Smith suspects Don and, signing himself Waller, wires the Jimtown sheriff to arrest Sturgis. Smoothie, trailing Nancy, learns she now has the securities representing her inheritance. Deciding to doublecross Alexander, he follows Nancy, wiring Sol Perri- well that he's a ranch buyer. He uses the name Roger J. Barclay. Don "rides the rods" to Wyoming and is known at f Slash as Cinders Malloy. At the Jimtown stage station Nancy induces Roberta (Bobbie) Rowland, new ranch maid, to change clothes and identities. Complications increase when Don surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsworth." Young Tony Pcrriwell proposes to Bobbie, thinking she is the Farnsworth heiress, and is accepted, and Kirk Maxwell interviews her for a society paper. Nancy's securities and jewels arc stolen from Roberta's cabin and Maxwell's manuscript disappears. Tony sells Maxwell the "information" that Roberta (Marcla at T Slash) is Nancy Smith. "Impossible." said Tony instantly. "I'll take the message." A telegram for Roberta Row- behind the door answered for a clothes closet, and hanging from one of these was the suit Nancy Eleanor Smith wore the night she -* A 'At T i-- ~.r itUt ijieanur OHULII v\ ui c me jiifein ai«, land!

Before handing down the Browder decision, the court delivered an important opinion curbing the Federal Trade Commission. It held that the commission could not extend to intrastate trade the fair practice rules it imposes upon interstate business, which the commission sought to do on the ground that unfair practices in intrastate trade affected interstate commerce. The court also upheld efforts by lo'.va to require mail order houses outside the state to collect the state's two per cent "use tax," complementary to its retail sales tax, on all goods they sell to Iowa residents. The companies had contended that the law was an unconstitutional discrimination against interstate commerce anil had been sustained by the Iowa Supreme Court. Browder. Kansas-born secretary and presidential candidate, of the Communist party, was alleged to have sworn falsely, when applying for a passport in 1934, that he had not previously received one. Actually, the government charged, Browder had obtained passports under the names of Nicholas Dozen- berg in 1921. George Morris in 1927 and Albert Henry Richards in 1931. The statute of limitations barred his prosecution on a charge of obtaining a passport by a false statement. Instead he was tried and convicted under a section of the passport law making it a crime to "willfully and knowingly use x x x any passport the issue of which was secured in any way by reason of any false statement." The "use" of the passport for which he was prosecuted consisted- of displaying it to an immigration inspector to prove his citizenship upon returning to this country April 30, 1937, and February 15, 1938, following trips abroad. He could have proved this just as well with a birth certificate or other document and Browder contended this was not the "use" penalized by the law. He said it was illegal only to use the passport in foreign travel. But Justice K e e d, delivering the court's opinion, wrote that "surely the close connection between foreign travel and re-entry to this country is obvious" and that "the plain meaning of the words of the act covers this use." Justice Murphy, former attorney general, did not participate in the case.

South could be pretty sure that West had 10 cards in the minor suits, but how could he tell how the three major-suit cards were split? The method was simple: South did a little investigating before he started the trumps. At the second trick, he led a heart to the king, and returned a low heart towards the dummy. If West had had no more hearts, he could ruff; but then dummy would play a low heart and South would have lost nothing. Actually, of course, West followed suit, and South then knew that West held at most one trump.

The commission has banned these "break and take" packages, as they are known- in the trade, from interstate commerce as an unfaTr trade practice. . It sought to order Bunte Brothers, Inc.. Chicago candy manufacturers, to abandon them in the Illinois market on the ground that otherwise Bunte could compete unfairly with put-of- state manufacturers. The court, in a five-three decision, held that congress had not conferred upon the commission authority to regulate practices which merely affect interstate commerce without themselves constituting interstate commerce. The majority opinion, by Justice Frankfurter, also noted that for a quarter of a century and until only recently the commission claimed no such chance trump trick would also go to the enemy. If South had been able to see all the cards, he'd have known that a trump finesse was necessary. But suppose West held only one heart also had nerable, you hold: to be lost, and there was some that a Philippines Seal Changed MAATLA, Feb. 17—(AP)— Because the official seal of the Philippines looked too much like the Japanese battle flag, the national assembly decided today to discard it and readopt the old seal used since before the Spanish-American War. The seal adopted by the assembly last year contained a central sun with eight rays. The rays represented the eight provinces which participated in the revolution against Spain. The old seal Includes, among other things, a Spanish castle, a hilted sword and the American eagle. The eagle was added when the islands came under the wing of the United States. The assembly acted after some members said the new seal was similar to the Japanese flag. A A Q J » « S <y i 2 0 Q J 4 A A K The bidding: Ymn Jacob? Schenkea 1* Pass 2<? Main Pass What do yon bid?
