Fairbanks Daily News-Miner (Newspaper) - April 11, 1956, Fairbanks, Alaska 2 Foirbonki News-Miner, Wed., April 11, 1956 Panties Vex London Cops LONDON, April 11 pair of filmy black nylon panties flut- tered atop the Houses of Parlia- ment today and London played hide and seek with a paif of young who decided it was time to liven up the city skyline. Anthony Read, 20-year-old ar- tists' model from London's Bo- hemian Bloomsbury quarter, and 18-year-old Hodney Bewes rowed across the River Thames shortly after midnight and scaled thg scaffoVvshrouded Big Ben clock tower. To the lightning conductor atop the 320-foot tower they fixed their filmy flag. A passing policeman spotted the pair as they shuffled across the Lighted face of the" clock on their way the chas- was on. Seven squad cars of Bobbies turned yut from Scotland Yard. A police launch on the river pinned Bewes and Read on the building with a searchlight. was said Anthony. "I -thoroughly enjoyed myself." Anthony and his friend were carted off to Scotland Yard and questioned for three hours. They were released. Knotty Problems (Continued from Page 1) from prosecution for any criminal violations. The criminal provisions are normal court functions, he said, and will be enforced. He added that his office will protest the is- suance of any new licenses until the situation is cleared. There was no indication today of what action the legislature ex- pected to take or when 'or if it might call a special session. A copy of the appellate court's ruling received today by Stevens said in part: "It also seems clear that con- gress expressly withheld from the legislature authority to invest thu judge with such duties. The dis- cretion exercised in granting or revoking a license to sell intoxi- cating liquor is not a function of the judiciary but an exercise of ultimate sovereignty commonly designated as the police power. The province of a court or judge Is not to exercise such power in the first instance, but to hear and determine in a case or controversy between adverse parties constitu- tional or legal questions as to the grant, or refusal of such a privi- lege to a designated person. Whole Pattern "The whole pattern of the en- actment shows that it was the at- tempt to confer upon the court or judge the administrative func- tions which congress had designat- i ed for an administrative board or commission." in the years between 193 and 1953, the territorial legislat- ure departed; from this basic plan and authorization granted by congress and adopted new legisla- tion which placed licensing in the hands of the clerks of district courts only 'in compliance with the order of the court or judge thereof duly made and entered.' "Thereafter in 1953, the terri- torial legislature departed entire- ly from the original scheme authorized by congress and re- pealed the law specifically ap- proved by congress which established a 'territorial liquor control for the govern- ment of liquor traffic in the ter- ritory. "It was clearly held that the judicial function is entirely sep- arate and apart from the exer- cise of this administrative dis- cretion. By the subsequent legis- lation, the original scheme was departed from. The powers and duties were taken from the ad- ministrative body which congress intended should discharge them, Thereafter, the board was abolish- ed. The attempt then was made to repose the entire task in the territorial courts or judges. "The limits of the authority conferred upon the territorial legislature were thus transcended, but such a usurpation of power is unavailing. Insofar as the legisla- tion went beyond the limits of the governing statute of congress, it was void." During the last session of the legislature, the house passed a bill to put the liquor licensing setup in the hands of the department of taxation with a three-man advis- ory board in charge. The bill fail- ed to get through the senate, due partly to the crush of time. Pet Beaver KANKAKEE, 111. tfl Davey Jones trapped a 35-pound beaver, and he doesn't know whether to make him into a pelt or keep him as a pet. Davey said the animal was caught by a front foot and didn't put up a fight even when he was in the trap. Davey penned the beaver in the base- ment, where it continues to be friendly.

Plane Tips Over In Sticky Mud KODIAK, April 11 and possibly four men escaped injury yesterday when a' fish .and wildlife plane flipped over while making a landing on an emerg- ency air strip at Sitkinak, 100- miles-'southwest, of here. .Soft mud on the landing strip was blamed 'for the flip-flop. Known to be aboard the aircraft were: Bill Harvey, the pilot; Will Troyer and Jim Branson. A fourth man, Roy Lindsley, may have left the plane at Alitak, 25 miles to the northeast. The re- port merely said all aboard were safe. The let down by the amphib- ious plane on the landing strip probably was made because of low water in Sitkinak lagoon. The plane left Kodiak early yester- day. (Continued Faze 1) to the States before they could vote there. Four different: ballots will be available at tbe polls. Two an party ballots and can be obtain ec only by. voters who declare them- selves to be "of one major political party or the other. These ballots contain the names of national committee candidates and Alas- ka's first presidential preferential election candidates. The Repub- lican ballots contain the -names of Mrs. Sylvia Ringstand, Fair- banks businesswoman, and Mrs Janice M. wife of the Anchorage pilot. Bob as candidate! lor GOP national comniitteewoman. Walter J. Hick- el, Anchorage contractor-hotel owner, and Henry A. Benson, present Alaska commissioner oi labor, are candidates for the post of GOP national committeeman. Presidential Race Presidential choices on the Re- publican ballot are President Dwight D. Eisenhower and Wil- liam F. Knowland, Republican senator from California. Hickel, who is the incumbent candidate for national committeeman, stat- ed at the time Eisenhower Indi- cated he would seek re-election that Knowland wished to consid- er himself out of the running. There has been no official with- drawal of his name from the bal- lot, however. Democrats, who go along with the territorial law calling for election at the polls of their na- tional committee leaders, none- theless have already cut and dried the proposition by naming their unopposed- candidates during their recent territorial conven- tion held in Fairbanks. Only the names of Mrs. E. A. (Helen) Fisher of Anchorage and Alexander Mill- er, incumbent committeeman of Fairbanks appear on the Demo- cratic ballot. Names Appear As for a Democratic party choice for president, the names of Sen. Estes Kefauver and Adlai E. Stevenson will both appear on the ballot. From news reports out of Washington, D. C. it ap- pears that Alaska's Delegate to Congress, E, L. (Bob) Bartlett, has thrown his support behind Stevenson, but within Alaska strong Kefauver support can be noted. Both men have visited the territory within the past two years; Kefauver was here last fall. All voters, whether they de- clare party preference or not, will get a crack at the two ballots which will be offered at the polls. One is the regular territor- ial arid divisional election of can- didates who will run in the gen- eral election next October. The other ballot contains three propo- of Alaska's proposed state constitution, the Alaska-Tennessee Plan, and the abolition of fish traps. Big Vote The constitution vote is expect- ed to be a big one due to the amount of interest and publicity which the document has gained since it was signed at Constitu- tion Hall on the University of Alaska campus in February. From all indications the proposal has plenty of support. The Alaska-Tennessee Plan calls for the immediate election of two U. S. Senators and one U.- S. Representative to be sent to Washington, D. C. whether or not Congress approves the Alaska constitution and grants statehood or not. Third Proposal A third proposition, which has already had the approval of Alas- ka voters, but has not been recog- nized by Washington, D. C. offi- cials who must give the final nod, is the abolition of fish traps from Alaska waters. For the three territorial of. flees, candidates for. which will be named' during tin primaries, tbe incumbent, I L. (Bob) Bart- lett is challenged by Petw Wood, Juneau salesman, for the Democratic spot on tbe gen- eral election ballot Bartlett, who is rounding out his tenth year In the delegate's post, will be mak- ing bis seventh consecutive bid .for a two-year term in Washing- ton.'

Sand- ers, Republican and an Anchor- age attorney, and J. (Jerry) Ger- ald Williams, incumbent seeking his third four-year term, of Ju- neau. Four Four names appear on the bal- lot for the highway engineer's post. One of the three Democrat- ic candidates, Donald H. Eyinek, former Fairbanks city' manager, has withdrawn from the race, however. Other Democrats seek- ing the candidacy are Frank A, Metcalf of Juneau. who has held the office in. tbe past, and Charles (Jack) Davis, an Anchor- age city councilman. Unopposed for the GOP spot is the incum- bent Irving Reed of JTineau, In the Fourth division race for senate general election nomina- tions are two Republican incum- bents, John Butrovich, Jr., insur ance company owner, and Mike Stepovich, Fairbanks attorney Three Democrats seek tbe two spots ai candidates in they are Jack D.

Manr A slate- of If candidates face voters in the Territorial Repre- sentative race.
