WASHINGTON, Feb. 17—(AP)
Justice Jackson spoke out sharply
Monday against "elastic and some
what unpredictable interpretations”
by his supreme court colleagues of
the wage-hour law on which the
portal pay claims are based.
The ruling he specifically as
sailed was delivered by his old an
tagonist, Justice Black.
Jackson’s immediate target was
an opinion which upset a finding of
the wage-hour administrator that
certain apprentice railroad men
were "employes” under the act.
Jackson and the eight other justices
agreed the men did not come under
the act. Black was assigned to write
the opinion, and Jackson disliked
his reasoning and said so.
PICKENS, S. C., Feb. 17 (AP)
—A band of armed men early
Monday removed a Negro prison
er, Willie Earle, 25, of Greenville,
from the Pickens county jail. An
hour later his body was found on
a road in Greenville county.
“Just before 5 o’clock this
morning,” said 62-year-old jailor
J. Ed Gilstrap, “about 25 men
knocked at the front door. Then
they came around to the back
door. One of the them said they
wanted the Negro and wouldn’t
harm anybody else. They made me
go in and unlock the cell.”
About 6:45 o’clock the body of
the Negro, who had been arrested
for investigation in the stabbing
of a taxi driver, was found in ad
jacent Greenville county.

The veterans administration was
the chief target, but the cut recom

current year operations. Appropria
tions recommended are to make up
the difference between original es
timates as to needs and what was
later found to be necessary.
