President visits freed hostages at Rome Airport 6, Rome apr president Nixon discussed War and peace in the Mediterranean with italian leaders today and made an unscheduled trip to Rome a air Moonshiner seek Legal Protection Washington apr in an attack on Federal tax Laws the supreme court has been asked to extend the fifth Amend mentus guarantee against self incrimination from gamblers to Moonshiner. Its an old argument but judging from a decision in a lower Federal court Legal opinion is now divided. At stake Are Federal income tax Laws requiring the posting of a sign at a lawful distillery furnishing of Bond registration information and Purchase of tax Stamps for whisky. In 1968, the supreme court said the Federal Law requiring gamblers to buy Stamps in effect violated the constitutional Protection against self incrimination. Invoking the fifth amendment is an absolute defense in cases where the gambling stamp provision was used to identify gamblers the High court ruled. The new but similar attack on alcoholic beverage Laws was brought by Walter grooms and Cleona Hooper both convicted in Detroit in connection with manufacture of illicit whisky. Their argument had they obeyed the Federal Laws they would have been forced to incriminate themselves. In the past convicted Moonshiner have had Little Success in courts with their plea. The u. S. Court of appeals at Cincinnati rejected the incrimination claim saying the alcoholic beverage Laws Are essentially noncriminal Revenue measures.

But unless the study brings out evidence previously unavailable to the inc history indicates the hikes will be allowed. In the last several decades inc officials admit the commis Sion has never turned the rail roads Down Eold and in most cases has Given them everything they asked for. The financial collapse last summer of the nations largest Railroad the Penn Central lends an urgency to the rail roads plea. And the labor difficulties the carriers have experienced in the last year have evoked a sympathetic response from inc chairman George m Stafford. In an interview last August Stafford said raising labor costs Are a major financial problem facing the railroads. The railroads also have Felt the Pinch of tight Money a a problem faced by much of Industry but especially critical for the capital intensive railroads shippers on the other hand contend the rail freight rate in creases Are the result of management. Some members of Congress contend the inc has allowed the railroads to raise rates without demanding improvements in service. Senate democratic Leader Mike Mansfield of Montana be came so incensed at the last freight rate hike approved Only last summer he called for abolishing the inc and farming out its duties to the department of transportation.
