Johnson, the plalmlff, is a resident of Benton County. The court also upheld, 4 to 3, the right of a liquor wholesaler lo conlinuc to operate In the state despite non-resident ownership of slock if the concern wrs legally in business at the time Act 37D of 1951 became effective. Act 379 restricted issuance ot wholesale liquor permits to firms whose-owners, ofliccrs and directors have been residents of the slate for at least five years. There were certain exceptions and it was interpretation of one of these that the divided opinion was issued. ·The decree affirmed Pulaskl Chancery Court in prohibiting George Callahan, director of the Alcoholic Beverage Control Board, from revoking the wholesale permit ot Lltlle Hock Distributing Company, Inc. 5,000 miles to return. target and then :iui tt . · The 358,000-poun.d-R-38 Is generally regarded as the polcntla No. i carrier, for the Air Force of atomic -bombs.

"* The corps. now has only about written by special Associate Justice Sam Rorex, held lhat this exempted the jittle Hock Distributing Company, which admittedly was legally in business when the act became effective. Three Justices--Ed McFaddin, Minor Millwcc and Paul Ward-- disaenlcd, holding that the company was not exempted. Chief Justice Griffin Smith disqualified himself in the case because his son, Griffin Smith, Jr., wai^onc of the attorneys. Rorcx was named to replace him. Opinion Re-Affirmed The Supreme Courl rc-atfirmed previous opinions holding that the fact that an employe was intoxicated is no -defense against recovery of workmen's compensation unless it can be shown tliat the Injury--in this case.a fatal one-was due solely to Intoxication. The Workmen's Compensation Commission denied Sarah Jones compensation in death of her husband Andrew Jones, an employe ot Cox Brolhers Lumber Company at Homan, Ark., who was killed by a train on May 23, 1049. Denial was based on the allegation ihat Jones had been drinking when he left his work lo cross the railroad tracks for lunch. The commission was reversed by the Miller Circuit Court.
