LICENSE LIABLE Judge Rules Secretary Cannot Regulate Business DES MOINES Oct 19 eral Judge Charles A Dewey ruled here today that the secretary of agriculture cannot license or regu late the business of a dairy when it is conducted entirely within a state The federal judge made the rul ing today when he signed an order denying the governments plea for a temporary injunction against the iillcrest dairy of Des Moines Not Subject to 1rnvisions Defense attorneys said the effect of the courts decision is that Iowa milk producers and distributors ariose business is conducted entire y within the state are not subject to provisions of the AAA milk li censes The government had sought the injunction on the grounds the dairy had violated provisions of the agri cultural adjustment act and the milk license promulgated for the Des Moines sales area under the statute Reasons Are Giveu The government contended that all milk produced in the Des Moines sales area is in the current ofinterstate

Race Start MILDENHALL AIRDROME En nierce In opposing the government claims the dairy declared the AAA unconstitutional in delegating legis lative powers to the secretary of agriculture that the license and its provisions are arbitrary and un reasonable and hence invalid as not being due process of law that the Des Moines license by its own terms belies its interstate charac ter and is beyond the power dele gated to the federal government and that the business of the Hill crest dairy is not in the current of interstate commerce and is there fore not subject to federal control Congress Power Irrelative We consider the courts deci sion stated the latter defense as determinative of the questions pres ented Under the state of facts pres ented it is unnecessary to pass upon the questions of the power of con gress to control business engaged in interstate commerce under the ag ricultural adjustment act nor the constitutionality of its delegation of Turn tn InEi X fiiliinin
