it was unconstitutional The Supreme Court however ruled that a temporary injunction against enforcement ot the imprint provision was not property grant ed The plaintiffs said had not shown their property rights had been invaded to such an extent The high court stressed how ever that it was not expressing an opinion as to the final merits of the attack on the imprint provi sion but only on the
