MURRAY IS GIVEN SON, $400 A WEEK (Continued From Page One) Robert S. Burns and Milan Medi govich. Coupling his decision with a criti cism of the polo-playing Mdivani, Judge Dockwieler said: “It is most singular to note that he would spend substantial sums for distant relatives and friends abroad but, with respect to his own flesh and blood, he made no con tribution for many years, other than a few paltry dollars he gave to his wife for their son’s needs. “This is indeed something the ocurt can hardly understand, for which the defendant gave no ade quate explanation.” Miss Murray sued Mdivani for $1,000 a month to enable her to establish a home for the son who was given, under a New York court order, to neutral persons until she could maintain a suitable home. The blonde Miss Murray testified she spent all her funds in a battle to save the boy’s life during a critical illness three years ago. She had complained that Mdivani dis sipated her funds whilo ther were marired, and that although she was worth $3,000,000 in 1926, 10 years later she had spent three nights on a bench in New York’s Central Park penniless.

The Labor board, ruling in a pro ceeding started by an AFL union before the contract was signed, or dered the company to desist from giving effect to it and to bargain with the union upon request. The firm fought the order principally on two grounds: 1- That the board failed to make the employes who signed the con tract a party to the action. 2. That the complaint on which the board was acting made no alle gations against the contract, which had developed afterwards. The court, in a 15-page decision by Justice Stone, said on the first point that the board’s function was not to adjudicate private rights but to effectuate the public policy of the Wagner act and that in its proceedings there was ‘‘little scope or need for the traditional rules governing the joinder, of parties in litigation determining private rights.” On the second point, the court held that the negotiation of the contract was a continuation of the unfair labor practices alleged in the original complaint. "Here the right asserted by the board is not one arising upon or derived from the contracts between petitioner and its employees,” Stone wrote. “The board asserts a public right vested in it as a public body, charged in the public interest with the duty of preventing unfair labor practices. ‘‘The public right and the duty extend not only to the prevention of unfair labor practices by the em ployer in the future, but to the pre vention of his employment of any advantage which he has gained by violation of the act . . . Obviously employers cannot set at naught the National Labor Relations act by in ducing their workmen to agree not to demand performance of the duties which it imposes . .
