Does not seem Likely that any attempt made in the near future to Start another political party could succeed. It b an enormous under taking that requires the Force or some great moral upheaval to make it effective. Without a political Leader of nation wide in fluence no practical result would be secured. As far As it now appears any new party would have to be Rad ical. Because the democratic party has had the solid South without much regard to issues it has usually tried to Appeal to the radicals in the North. If it were to lose this strength it could not win. If there were no Choice at the next presidential election the decision go to the House of representatives where in 1932 the republicans will control a majority of the slates and so would elect a Republican presi Dent. A third party apparently would ensure a Republican Vic tory. For that reason any plan to Start a new party seem practical. But in addition to this our people Are not third party minded. They believe All Neces sary reforms can be secured within the old parties and that they Are the Best instruments of government f copy night. 1930. For the Oil cd. Plant two men injured.

The humpty dump ties he employs Are cells the tiny units form ing the bodies of animals which Are. The prototype o. All eggs. He has tried this on brain body and cancer cells but the brain cell alone thus far has shown the Mas Ter like qualities necessary for the rejuvenation.

Cell like in other words something life like might result without intervention of the usual Union of male and female elements. He separated brain cells into their constituent fats proteins and Ash he found Only fresh brains retained the Power to reunite but by preserving the fats in Ether he could wait perhaps a month after death and still get the return.

The decision was based on the merger negotiations and the sub sequent meeting on March 12 of the Sheet Anil tube directors. Considering these proceedings illegal the saw no reason for going into the numerous controversial Points involved in the Sheet and tube stockholders meeting april is. Where the merger was ratified. Jenkins handed Down his decision six months from the inception of one of the bitterest Legal fights in corporate history a Strug of millions that was carried out first with proxies and then with lawsuits.

Also lie said the Sheet and tube directors and shareholders As Well were without and such basis for forming such indeed to put it the decision said it must be frankly said in the present state of the record grave doubt As to adequacy of the consideration judge makes three copies of his decision the decision was written in Pencil by the judge in a round careful hand on Nineteen pages of foolscap paper. He made three copies himself desiring no mistake made in having a stenographer or typist transcribe it. One copy he filed with the clerk of the Mahoning county common pleas court.

The evidence is Clear to the the decision continued that he knowingly wag not act ing for All the shareholders of Sheet and tube in that Steps were taken to delay advising them of the existence of and the Point to which the privately conducted negotiations had Cone. He was therefore in this not acting for Sheet and tube but for the other company Bethlehem even though honestly intending to act in what he believed if be for the Best interests of Shert and Dalton also was criticized for not informing and Sheet and tube stockholders of the Bon uses paid to Bethlehem Sec Tiv it was brought out in the in Junction hearing that in 1929 the bonuses amounted to Bonus system Stock values.
