MILK MEN FIND THEMSELVES IN WALLACE'S GRIP Government Bares Teeth in Farm Relief: Permits to Be Issued. sty Prrippt-Hotrard ~S rtr*papcr Alliance WASHINGTON, July 18. Li censes which the agricultural ad justment administration will im pose on milk distributors and processors actually will be govern ment permits to do business. Determination of the A. A. A. to invoke its licensing system is the first display of the iron hand with in the velvet glove of the new farm relief law. It is the decision of the Roosevelt administration that re calcitrant minorities handling food products in interstate commerce will not be permitted to upset agreements among majorities in their industries. Licensing of milk producers would , work this way: If produceres, dis- j tributors and processors of milk within a given area reach a mar- j keting agreement in which prices j to be paid producers and prices to j be charged retail customers are j fixed, and its terms are favored by the A A A , governmental ap- j proval will be given. All to Be Licensed Then, all those who signed the. agreement, as well as those who did not, will be licensed. The pro- I visions of the license will follow' j the terms of the marketing agree- j ment, and, generally, licensees who decline to join the agreement will j pay the same prices to producers j as those who did sign. The terms of the agricultural ad justment act, regarding licenses are broad and definite: "In order,” says the law, ‘‘to ef fectuate the declared policy <or this act), the secretary of agriculture shall have power ... to issue li censes permitting processors, asso ciations of producers and others to engage in the handling, in the current of interstate, or foreign commerce, of any agricultural com modity or product thereof, or any j competing commodity or product thereof. Fines May Be Levied "Such licenses shall be subject to j such terms and conditions . . .as may be necessary to eliminate un- i fair practices or charges that pre- J \ont, or tend to prevent . . . the! restoration of normal economic con- j riitions in the marketing of such commodities or products . . . the secretary of agriculture may sus pend or revoke any such license ... for violation of the term and conditions thereof.” The law r also provides for fines of not more than SI,OOO a day for each day of the terms of a license are violated. The secretary likewise is empow ered to require his licensees to make detailed reports on their j bmusiness, with special attention to the prices paid for products bought, and prices charged for products sold.

Opening round of the state ad ministration's battle to reduce util ity rates as won before the public service commission today. Motions to dismiss the rate re duction procedure launched against the Public Service Company of In diana promptly were rejected by the commissioners. The case, involving the hundreds of cities and towns throughout the entire "south system,” will proceed, it was announced by Chairman Perry McCart of the commission. The rate case as inagurated by the commission upon information filed by Sherman Minton, public counselor, designed to show that the company made $2,000,000 or more excess profits last year. Minton Assails Motions Edward H. Heble of the Chicago law’ firm of Cooke, Sullivan & Ricks, appeared for the company. He contended that Minton ex ceeded his power as public coun selor in filing a rate reduction peti tion and that he had no right to put the burden of proof on the com pany. His motions to dismiss were based on these two points. Minton assailed them both. “We want to get to the merits of this case and not waste our time arguing procedure.” he declared. "This company comes in with the same old w’heeze and dodge that rates can not be reduced this w’ay or that. "They are using the old trick of setting up a straw man and then knocking it down. I know that the public counselor has no right to institute a rate case by petition. But the commissioners can and they are the ones calling this hearing to day. Reach Decision Swiftly “They are w’ell within their rights to make the company show’ their books and prove w’hether or not present rates are unjust and un reasonable.” Commissioners reached a decision to overrule the company motions to dismiss without leaving the hear ing room. McCart said that the case had been based on other showings in addition to that made in the “bill of discovery,” filed by Minton.
