(AP) j Three federal judges ruled today that Gov. Orville L. Freeman went beyond his authority in using National Guardsmen to shut down the strikebound Wilson Co. packing plant at Albert Lea, Minn. They tofd the company it could reopen the plant. The judges held Freeman had no absolute power to declare mar- tial law at Albert Lea. Their ruling barred Freeman and the National Guard from in- terferrmg with the company's right to have "free and unlimited access to the plant. Grant Time for Appeal The court panel granted a slay of its injunction until midnight Sunday, however, to permit the state an appeal to a U. S. Circuit Court. Freeman declared martial law at Albert Lea on Dec. 11 after violence broke out at the plant involving pickets and nonunion workmen who had been hired by the company to replace strikers. "Military rule cannot be im- posed upon a community simply because it may .seem to be more expedient than to enforce the law by using the National Guard to aid the local civil the judges said. Freeman's office said he would make no comment until the gov- ernor has had a chance to read the 12-page decision. Wilson's president, .Tames D.

Snowfall here measured about four inches at midnight, with an- other three to four inches falling since then. Temperatures remain- ed in a moderate 25 to 27-degree range. Ordinance Reminder Police Chief R. J. Exner today reminded residents and business- men of a city ordinance which pro- vides that if persons deposit snow from their private driveways or parking areas onto public streets they can be charged by the city for the cost of its removal. The Weather Bureau said four to six inches of snow are expected to accumulate over the south, west and northeast sections of the state before diminishing to flurries by tonight. Strong winds will cause heavy drifting and blowing snow, making road clearing difficult. The bureau said holiday motorists traveling anywhere in Wisconsin 'and "hefgTiBiSring states should be well equipped, including shovels. And in Milwaukee, the street de- partment was mounting snow plows and sending out trucks in a full scale plowing operation.
