lard Container Case Reached
Climax Today

The motion asks that Judge Pollock
dismiss tne action on various grounds,
which boiled down are to the effect
that the law is unconstitutional. The
packers allege that the law is an ar
bitrary classification of food products
and that it is in violation of the four
teenth amendment to tne constitution
of the United States.
Should Judge .Pollock dismiss the
information, the state would have lost
but. On the other hand should the
judge deny the motion it would mean
that the packers have lost. The whole
case now hinges on this question of
law—Is the North Dakota standard
