FILLED-MILK LAW CONSTITUTIONAL COURT DECIDES STATUTE PROHIBITING MANIJ- FACTURE AND SALE OF SKIM MILK COMPOUNDS UPHELD TODAY (By Associated Press) Madison, Wis., July consti- tutionality of tlic Wisconsin filled-milk law was upheld today in a decision of the state .supreme court. The law pro- hibits the manufacture and sale of compounds made of skim milk and cocoanut oil in Wisconsin.

Carnal ion Co. .Plainlifl" The attack ou the constitutionality of the law, enacted by the legislature in 1921, was commenced by the Carna- tion company during: September of last' year, in an original action before the supreme court to restrain enforce- ment of the statute by J. Q. Emery, dairy and food eommis.' The measure, which carried through the assembly with 12 dissent- ing votes and passed unanimously by the .senate, was strongly opposed at the time by the milk companies. At hearings'liefoi-e the legislature fan ers from all' over the state appeared, urging passage of the prohibitory measure as a means of curbing an in- dustry, which they said threatened the dairy interests of the state. The almost unanimous action of the legis- lature followed.

This action was at .once con- tested by Attorney General William J. Morgan. Arguments were made before the -court April 15 of this year, the attor- neys for the milk companies, attack- ing- constitutionality of the measure. Deputy Attorney General Hoyt, repre- sented the state in upholding the legality of the action of the legisla- ture. Contention was made by the com- panies that the statute was an inter- ference with interstate commerce, and its application a deprivation of prop- erty without due process of law, while also in conflict with the equal protec- tion clause of the federal as well as the state constitution. The state contended that the filled- milk compound of skimmed milk and cocoanut oil was of an "inherently fraudulent that its sale should be prohibited under the police Morgan In Stand; For Semi-Annual Payment Of Taxes "Prairie du Sac, Wis., July liam J.
