The suit asked the U. S. District court to issue an injunction pro- hibiting the NFL from restricting television and radio broadcasts of its football games. H.

Speaking in French, the usual He Can't Appoint Them On Interim Basis Washington, Oct. 9 Senate took two of President Truman's federal judgeship nom- inations out of pigeonhole today and killed them outright. The action made sure that Mr. Truman could not put his selec- tions. Cornelius J. Harrington and Joseph H. Drucker of Illinois, on the bench while Congress was not in session. Senator Douglas (D-I11) led the fight on Mr. Truman's' Illinois t nominations, because the President picked Harrington and Drucker over men recommended by Doug- las. On the voice vote of rejection no one was heard to support the President's choices. Before today's vote, the Senate Judiciary committee had pigeon- holed the nominations. Had noth- ing more been done, Mr. Truman would have been free to give them interim appointments after Congress adjourned, if he wanted to. In another development, a bill creating new on circuit court of appeal and 16 on district courts plus four tempor- ary district court passed on a voice vote and now goes to the House for action.
