THE MORNING AVALANCHE •In Indictments (Bv The AKocli'.ed Prt$s) KANSAS CITY, Feb. 19.—Tn- diclmerus charging Armor & Co., Swift & Cc., four other concerns and six individuals with conspiracy to violate the Sherman antitrust lav; in the operation of the St. Joseph, Mo., hog market were returned today by a federal grand jury. Besides the two packing companies, named in the indictments returned to Federal Judge Merrill E, Oti.5 are: The St. Joseph Stock Yards company. The St. Joseph Livestock Exchange. The joint marketing improvement committee. The hog yards subcommittee o£ the St. Joseph joint marketing improvement committee. Individuals Included Individuals against whom indictments were returned are: Floyd M. Sherwood, Chicago, head hog buyer for Armour &: Co. Charles S. Lechler, St. Joseph, head hog buyer at St. Joseph for Armour & Co. George H. Damsel, jr., St. Joseph manager for Armour & Co. James H. Bliss, Chicago, assistant treasurer of Swift & Co. Carl J. Meyer, St. Joseph, head hog buyer for Swift & Co. Walter S. Parker, St. Joseph, general manager of the Swift & Co. slaughter house. Suppressed Compelilion The indictments charge that through agreement and concerted action by the defendants there was unreasonable suppression of competition in the sale of hogs on the St. Joseph market and the prevention of the formation of hog prices by free and competitive bidding and buying. The further effect of the alleged conspiracy, it is charged, was to arbitrarily depress, stabilize "and "thejwise control and fix noncompetitive prices on hogs sold on the market."

Haneocic. owner and contractor, to Tire Rationing Rules Revised (By The Dnlte AUSTIN, Feb. 19.— Revised tire rationing rules, effective today, make automobiles used by regular practicing ministers of any religious faith eligible for tire re- equipment i£ the vehicle n used principally in ministerial work and is necx'ssary to performance of religious duties. Copies of the revised regulations were received last night at the office of Rationing O/.ficer Mark McGee. Inclusion ot ministers' cars on the eligible list is the principal -change. Private Nurses Not Included The revised regulations also define a "visiting nurse," Visiting nurses have been eligible previously, and the revised rules merely say that a private nurse does not come under the classification. To be eligible, the nurse must be employed by a clinic, hospital, government or similar agency, or an industrial concern to make regular nursing or inspection calls. The revision permits sale of tires to vehicles kept ready for use as ambulances. This takes care of small establishments where a hearse is used also for ambulance service. The revision was understood here to put under rationing the odd-sized tires fbrmerly classified as obsolete and not under restriction.
