Insurance Is Ruled Interstate


y Court


Decision Is
Conspiracy Is Charged
tinder Aniti-Trust Law
WASHINGTON, Jtne 5.-(P)-The
Supreme Court, overturning a 75-
year-old decision, ruled today that
the insurance business is interstate
commerce and therefore subject to
regulation under the Sherman Anti-
Trust Law and the WVagner Labor Act
The decision in the anti-trust case
upheld indictments charging a group
of fire insurance coipanies with
conspiracy to restrain interstate tade
arnd paved the way for similar actions
against other companies which the
Justice Department has said it wOuld
start if the indictments were sus-
Legislation Called for
Legislation is pending in both hous-
es of Congress specifically to exempt
the insurance business from the anti-
trust laws, and supporters said they
would press for quick action. Rep
Walter (Dem., Pa.), author of a meas-
ure which has been approved by the
House judiciary committee, declared
legislation is "needed immediately to
,prevent chaos."
Rep.eHancock (Rep., N.Y.), author
of a similar bill, said the federal gov-
ernment has no organization to- take
over supervision of insurance. The
pending legislation would leave such
supervision to the states.
Chairman Sumners Disagrees
Chairman Sumners . (Demi., Tex.)
of the House Judiciary Committee
said, "I don't agree with the Supreme
Court majority opinion."
However, Senator O'Mahoney
(Dem., Wyo.), who has long fought
the exemption legislation, predited
it would die in Senate committee. He
said the Court's decision now requires
the fire insurance companies to co-
operate with Congress and the states
"in revising the insurance system so
as to provide equitable treatment for
little business as well as big qusinss."
With the exception of Justice lob-
erts, who took no part in the dteci-
sions, the Court was unanimous ii its
belief that insurance is interstate
commerce and that the Wagner Act
But the Court split, four to three,
on the question whether insurance is
subject to the anti-trust laws.

Collections of sweaters of all
shapes and sizes for the Send Our
Sweaters Drive, to }be given to the
underclothed Belgian population,
will begin tomorrow and continue
until June 14 in the Under Graduate
Office at the League.
Competition between dormitories,
league houses, and sororities and also
between individual houses will be
encouraged. Every woman is asked
to attach the name of her house to
the sweater or sweaters she is donat-
ing before she puts them into one of
the three boxes provided for dormi-
tories, league houses and sororities.
Deborah Parry, chairman of the
drive, emphasized that the goal has
been set at 1500 sweaters. "We have
set this goal high, because we know
that college women realize the des-
perate need for these articles and
will be willing to sacrifice at least
one of their many sweaters," Miss
Parry explained.

of dinner with a French family on
the island.)
"It was an experience. We had
apertifs first - whiskey, ruin, or
brandy. Each place was set with 3
dinner plates, one on top the other,
a large soup plate being on top the
other three. First came a large tour-
een of delicious thick soup, served
with the hard bread which was
rolled in our napkins. A dish of new
peas cooked with little onions came
on next."
"Then came a platter of wonder-
ful chicken from their own flock,
cooked with a brown sauce, also
French fried potatoes."
"Dessert was a pie shell which was
about half an inch thick and crunibly
rather than flaky. filled with a lus-
cious custard; we had cognac with
thick, black coffee."
