j . 1 Rolls-Royce Files Contract Suit Here Rolls-Royce. Inc., of Michigan yesterday filed suit in District Court to prevent Secretary of War Stim son from renegotiating the firm’s war contracts under the Renegotia tions Act, which the suit claims is unconstitutional. The suit asks for a “writ of pro hibition.” or, as an alternative, an “order in the nature of mandamus" to prevent renegotiation. The corporation is engaged in procuring, manufacturing, engineer ing, inspecting, boxing and shipping of machine tools, including small precision tools for the Rolls-Royce aero engine? used in Spitfires, Hurri canes and-other airplanes. It also makes component parts of the Rotal propeller. Prior to lease-lend, the total value of items sent abroad by Rolls Royce was approximately $25,000, 000. Since then more than $26,000, 000 additional has been contracted for and is in the course of produc tion, the suit said. The suit added the corporation has not declared a dividend, but has devoted itself to defense pro | duction. It says the corporation, against its will, was ordered by the Secretary of War’s representative in Detroit to permit a British Ministry of Supply representative to visit its plant. Among other claims in the suit is that agents of the Secretary of War seek to go beyond renegotiation re quirements by requiring the corpo ration to reveal certain trade se crets. The firm is represented by Attor ney Justin L. Edgerton of this city and Attorney Charles F. Short, jr., of Chicago. Mid City Citizens Urge i Garbage Law Enforcement Enforcement of $300 fine violations of sanitary regulations governing disposal of garbage in water-tight containers, as part of the District’s rat control program, was urged last night by the Mid-City Citizens’ As sociation.
