The new rlml countered legal moves by public utility holding companies to- day by filing suit In an effort to compel the giant Electric Bond and Share Co, and five subsidiaries to register under the holding company act of 1935. The government'! action follow- ed filing of a aeries of suits by util- ity companies seeking to have the public utility holding company act declared unconstitutional and to re- strain the government from enforc- ing It. By bringing suit In Ifa own name, Sw SUIT, 11, WASHINGTON, Nov. The government considered reced- ing from ILs aggressive anti-war trade stand today and permitted American oil tankers on which It holds mortgages to carry cargoes to Italy that will be used to keep her war machine and Industries going Policy Shaken As a result of the league's powers' decision to postpone their threat- ened embargo of oil and other war materials to Italy, the government and Its "crack down" policy against war-traders has been left far out on a limn, with nothing to support It except the government's dislike of all trade in war materials. This wns revealed today In an au- thoritative quarter In connection with the government's relations with the Tanker Ulysses, owned by the American Tankers Corporation of New York. This vessel, under charter to carry barrels of oil from a gulf port to Italy, was American ship on which the government exerted financial pres- ure to ccnipel the operator to com- rJly with the administration's neu- trality policy. About ten days ago governmen officials notified the American Tankers Corporation that the pros pectlve voyage of the Ulysses wouli "conflict" with their program, and frowned on the use of the vessel to carry oil to Italy. The line was re- minded that the government held a mortgage on the boat. Tlie line virtually agreed to can- cel the Ulysses charter and the ship never left Now York. The oil company was left with no Immedi- ate menns of transporting the oil which It hud contracted to sell to Italy. Subsequently the shipping board drafted letters to all operators of ships on which the U. 8. govern- ment holds mortgages, calling at- tention to the neutrality policy and virtually warning tbem against use of the ships In any manner which would violate this policy. The whole policy, officials admit- was to reassure Great Britain and ottwsr league powers thnt the See SANCTIONS, II, Col 7 hlna Clipper Is Ready To Take Off For Guam WAKE ISLAND, Nov. le crew of the China clipper rest- here today while the huge Jly- g boat was serviced for the next the last hop of its urney to establish trans-PacllIc all service.
