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 "Win. 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 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, now ranch maid, to change clothes and identities. Complications increase when Don surprises Nancy reading a letter from her uncle addressed "Marcla Farnsworth." Young Tony Perriwell 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 are stolen from Roberta's cabin and Maxwell's manuscript disappears. Tony sells Maxwell the "information" that Roberta (Marcla at T Slash) is Nancy Smith.

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 Philippines Seal Changed MANILA, 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. South would have lost nothing. Actually, of course, West followed suit, and South then knew that West held at most one trump. After that investigation, it was easy to cash the spade ace and then finesse through East's queen. * • • Yesterday you were Oswald Ja- cpby's partner and, with neither side vulnerable, you held: 4k A Q 10 ( S <y 7 2 4 A K The bidding: T»n grnenkea 14 Fasa (T) Jacob?

In this way he might be able to catch one without the others knowing a thing about it. Blacky the Crow sat in the top of a tal'l tree where he could see all that was going on. Blacky was as impatient as Reddy was patient. "Why doesn't that red rascal rush in and get ont of those fat hens?" muttered Blacky. "What is the matter with him, anyway? I wonder if he is afraid. He could catch one of them without half Browder and an associate, Welwel Warszower, alias Robert William Wiener of New York. Before handing down the Browder decision, the court delivered an mportant opinion curbing the Federal Trade Commission. It held ;hat the commission could not extend to intrastate trade the fair practice rules it imposes upon in- ;erstate business, which the commission sought to do on the ground hat unfair practices in intrastate .rade affected interstate commerce. The court also upheld efforts by Iowa 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 Roods they sell to Iowa residents. The companies had contended that the law was an unconstitutional discrimination against interstate commerce and had been sustained by the Iowa Supreme Court. Browder, Kansas-born secretary and presidential candidate of the Communist party, was alleged to lave sworn falsely, when applying "or a passport in 1934, that he had not previously received one. Ac- ually, the government charged, Browder had obtained passports un- "er the names of Nicholas Dozen- ierg 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 "willfuily 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 Reed, 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. The trade commission case arose from a method of selling candy highly popular with children. Young Johnnie pays his nickel for a candy bar and bites into it—if the center happens to be a certain color, he gets another piece free The commission has banned these "break and take" packages as they are known in the trade from interstate commerce as an unfa'r trade practice. It sought to order Bunte Brothers, Inc., Chi cago candy manufacturers, to aban don them in the Illinois market on the ground that otherwise Bunte could compete unfairly with out-of state manufacturers. The court, in a five-three decision, held that congress had noi 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 power and that it sought unsuc- Am userne Tod ay with Boris Karloff."

Frankfurter added that the case was "very different" from the February 3 decision which upheld the application of the wage-hour law to a lumber company which claimed to do an intrastate business. "We had there to consider the full scope of the constitutional power of congress under the commerce clause," he explained. "This case presents the narrow question of what congress did, not what it could do." received Justice Douglas, in a dissent Iwork an joined by Justices Black and Reed,} jobs in argued that the trade commission [ ended January'"'! act, "an exercise by congress of =»-- •--- • ' its commerce power, should be interpreted to protect interstate commerce, not to permit discrimination against it." "Unfair competition Involves not only an offender but also a victim," he said. "Here some of the victims of the unfair methods of competition are engaged hi interstate commerce. The fact that the acts of the offender are intrastate is immaterial." The court also divided on the [pwa tax case, five-two, with Justice Stone not participating. The majority opinion, by Justice Douglas, held that the tax was valid aecause "the purchaser is in Iowa and that tax is upon use in Iowa" and that the mail order houses could be required to act as collec- :ion agencies as a condition of doing business in the state. "Use in Iowa is what is taxed," :he decision said, "regardless of the time and place of passing title and regardless of the time the tax is required to be paid, x x x "The use tax and the sales tax are complementary. Sales made wholly within Iowa carry the same burden as these mail order sales. A tax or other burden obviously loes not discriminate against in- erstate commerce where 'equality s its theme.'" Justice Roberts, in a dissent joined by Chief Justice Hughes, declared that "a state cannot justify a burden on interstate commerce by laying a similar burden on local commerce" and that the tax constituted ft "c A jiz is .ca •pal Fre: iou Ibers MiS Bi ino au. age ests De Placements of women read* per cent in 1939, or four S more than in 1938.
