I? County Chick Sexing Case to High Court DEB MOINES W--The Iowa Sv- preme Court Wednesday was asked to decide a dispute about restraint of trade in the chick-sextng business. • • S. John Nitla of Lansdale, Penn., who does business as the American Chick Sexing Association, asked the court to help him keep two former employees from running their own chick-sexing business In northwest Iowa. Carroll County Case ! The former employees, Mr. and Mrs. Jack K. Kuda, successfully resisted Nitta's control over northwest Iowa chick-sexing in a Carroll County district court battle. The Kudas claimed in their defense that Nitta was "trying to create a monopoly in the United States of the chick-sexing business." They also charged that Nitta "by his acts and schemes is attempting to deprive these defendants of the right to earn a livelihood." Nitta, in seeking to enforce a contract with the Kudas, has tried to keep them in virtual slavery, the Kudas charged. Ruling by Judge Cooney District Judge F. H. Cooney, in the Carroll county case, ruled Feb. 20, 1954, that Nitta's chick- sexing contract was too restrictive. The judge dismissed Nitta's attempt to keep the Kudas from Physicist Keeps Scientists Informed— His Outer-Space Messenger Service Has World-Wide IGX Clientele QUEEN OF THE FURROW . . . Lovely Ann Lane, 16-year-old Fulton County (Ohio) farm girl won the "Queen of the Furrow" competition, making her official hostess for the 1957 World's Conservation and Plowing contests at Peebles, Ohio.

By JERRY BENNETT j NE A Staff Correspondent I WASHINGTON — WEA) — A young Colorado physicist' has opened ,lup an outer-space messenger service with a world-wide clientele. Telegrams from Alan H. Shapley's new business do not reach Mars. But they Sre eagerly awaited by 5,000 fellow scientists engaged in a global exploration of the Earth's mysteries. Shapley of the Boulder Laboratories, National'Bureau of Standards,'is boss of communications for the International Geophysical Year. For the next 18 months, his radio-teletype network will send word to scientists from 62 nations about what's happening in the atmosphere and on the sun. Then from observatories and weather stations ranging from Asiatic mountain peaks to the steaming tropics, they can study these actions at the same. time. Since the Idea of the International Geophysical Year was first hatched, the importance of a topflight communications system was readily apparent. A method had to be found to alert observers all over the world to solar gymnastics. Shapley got the job. A sudden effect of the assignment was to take the scientist out of the laboratory and turn him into an international traveler. For the past four years, the Harvard astro-physics graduate who is also vice-chairman for the U. S. National Committee for IGY has been constantly on the go. His Times Herald, Carroll, Iowa «% Thursday, Sept. 12, 19S7 sexing-chicks in northwest Iowa. Court records filed in Nitta's appeal to the supreme court showed Mr. and Mrs. Kuda signed a contract with Nitta's chick-sexing association in 1947. Nitta was to teach them the "art and secret" of telling girl chicks from boy chicks at his chick sexing school. After graduation. Nitta gave them an "exclusive territory" to sex chicks for hatcheries in 12 northwest Iowa counties (Dickinson, Clay, Cherokee, Buena Vista, Ida, Sac, Woodbury, Pocahontas, Carroll, O'Brien, Palo Alto and Emmet). Contract Terms The Kudas agreed in the contract to give Nitta 15 per cent of their chick-sexing earnings for three years. The contract also prohibited the Kudas from soliciting chick-sexing business in their territory for three years after the contract expired. Judge Cooney ruled that it was "not unreasonable" for Nitta to keep the Kudas from working for the hatcheries where they had worked under contract for Nitta. But the district court juriee ruled it was "against public policy as an unreasonable restraint of trade" to make the Kudas stay completely out of the 12-county area in carrying on their independent chick-sexing. travels flew him back and forth from'such distant spots as Rio de Janeiro. Tokyo. Moscow, Paris and Arctic icebergs meeting with government officials and scientists. Both commercial and government networks throughout the world are being used to speed the word to watchful scientists. Ham operators in the United States can keep up with solar activities twice every hour by tuning in WWV and WWVH. Messages will be sent on these National Bureau of Standards stations in Morse Code twice each hour. For instance if a listener hears j five As in succession, he will j know an Alert is about to start, j Five Ss mean a Special World Interval will take place the next 'day, Radio frequencies are 2V4. 5, 1 10, 15,. and 25 megacycles. The system's headquarters, called the World Warning Agency, is located at the Bureau of Standards radio forecasting center at Fort Relvoir, Va. Four main regional offices are located in Moscow. Paris, Tokyo and Sidney, Australia. Completing the network are the local bureaus strung . . out from frigid glaciers to ocean lts regional office of what, it has washed Pacific beaches. ^observed on the sun. The regional office in turn funnels the information to Fort Belvoir, If an unusual occurrence should be spotted, like an extra large flare, Fort Belvoir may send out an alert. This notifies everyone to keep their eyes on the sun. If the tempo of the phenomenon should start increasing, the Headquarters might announce a Special World Interval. This is equivalent to an air raid alarm to scientists. It tells them the solar activity has reached an intensity to cause changes in the atmosphere or on the Earth. Although tests of the messenger service show It's In fln« shape,Shapley's job has just started. Throughout the 18-month IGY* which started July 1, he .must constantly supervise its operation. This will call for more packing and unpacking of suitcases as he tours the many forej£h stations. Already so busy that "he sometimes has trouble remembering his age — he's 38 ~. Shapley's problems don't always? concern physics. In fact he mentioned one the other day which he jjsjjrs will make IGY take a back seat for awhile. He announced he was about to become a father.
