Wins DuPont
Appeal of Dismissal
Granted by Court
'WASHINGTON () -The gov-
ernment yesterday won a Supreme
Court hearing in its long fight to
divorce the Du Pont interests from
General Motors Corporation.
The court granted a govern-
mentappeal for review of a lower
court's dismissal of a civil anti-
trust suit against E. L du Pont
de Nemours & Co., andrelated Du
Pont family interests and General
United States Dist. Judge Wal-
ter L. LaBuy, who presided at a
long trial of the case in Chicago,
ruled in December last year that
the government failed to prove its
t case.
Patently Erroneous
The Justice Department, con-
tending the decision was "patent-
ly erroneous because it ignored
the realities of intercorporate re-
lations" appealed directly, to the
Supreme Court.
Justices Clark and Harlan dis-
qualified themselves in the case.
Clark was attorney general when
the antitrust suit was filed in 1949.
In asking the court to overturn
Judge La Buy, the Justice Depart-
ment contended Du Pont interests
since the 1920's have exercised
control over General Motors, the
nation's top automobile maker,
through ownership of 23 per cent
of its stock. The department said
this stock is worth more than two
billion dollars.
Other Business
The court, which opened its 1955
-56 term a week ago, began dig-
ging into a big backlog of accum-
ulated business. It acted on about
354 cases. For the most part it
merely announced whether it
would or would not rule on these
In the first formal opinion of
the term, the court directed the
University of Alabama to admit
two Negro girls as students. It
cited earlier decisions in whvich
state universities in Texas and
Oklahoma were ordered to admit
Negroes to graduate schools.
In another action, the court re-
jected a request by the govern-
ment that it fix the seaward
boundary of Louisiana at three
geographical miles from its shore-
line. Louisiana claims its boundary
evtends ,into the Gul of Mexico
three leagues, or about 10' miles,
thus entitling it to oil and mineral
deposits in that area.
~ RLBlaze
A police investigation was laun-
ched yesterday morning after fire
swept through an office in the
University's antiquated Romance
Languages building, at 4 a.m. Sun-
The investigation was requested
by fire chief Ernest Heller who
said, "The fire could well have
been a replica of the Haven Hall
disaster of 1950." The Haven Hall
fire completely gutted the old
Haven Hall, and destroyed works
of many professors.
Sunday morning's fire almost
completely destroyed the office
of Prof. James C. O'Neill and B.'

F. Bart. Firemen arrived in four
trucks to find smoke pouring from
the attic of the four story build-
The blaze was discovered by a{
watchman making his rounds, and
was confined to the lone office by
the fire department.
Classes went on yesterday as4
usual, but students and professors
suffered from a stench which hung
in the building all day.
