transfer on the ground that Chi
cago would be more convenient
to witnesses and that there would
be easier access to the files of the
two defendant corporations in
Chicago. Tlie Government op
posed the motion.
The suit charges that the ac
quisition of the assets of the old
Statler corporation eliminates
competition between Statler and
Hilton, particularly in Washing
ton. New York, St. Louis and Los
’Angeles. It asks that the Hilton
Hotels Corp. and the new Statler
Hotels Delaware Corp. be forced
to divest themselves of the hold
ings in the four cities and to dis
pose of such other properties as
the court deems necessary.
The suit says the function of
the Statler Hotels Delaware Corp.
is tp hold title to the hotel build
ings formerly owned by the for
mer Hotel Statler Corp. and to
lease them to the defendant Hil
ton Hotels Corp.
