FTC Accuses El Paso Firms EL PASO The Federal Trade Commission has charged a large Southwestern grocery chain and two concerns it controls with receiving brokerage on purchases of food products made for their own account, in violation of federal anti-trust law. Named in a commission complaint are these three affiliated concerns, all of El Paso, Texas: Food Mart, Inc., the parent corporation, which operates approximately 60 stores in Texas and New Mexico; Del Norte Frozen Foods, Inc., a wholesale distributor of frozen foods, with about 85 percent of its sales being made to Food Mart; and Davis Brokerage Co., Inc., a frozen foods broker. Also cited are these officers and directors: J. Spencer Weed, chairman of the board and director of Food Mart; Gordon W. Foster, president and director of Food Mart, and vice-president and director of Del Norte; Robert H. Hoy, executive vice-president and director of Food Mart; and Lawrence M. Davis, president and director of Del Norte and Davis. According to the complaint, Food Mart owns 497 of Del Norte’s 500 shares of stock, and one share each is owned by Weed and Davis. All 25 shares of the Davis brokerage concern are held by the four men in varying amounts. Many of Food Mart’s purchases, the complaint says, are made through its subsidiary, Del Norte, which in turn bought the products through the chain’s controlled intermediary, Davis Brokerage. Through their ownership of the latter firm, the complaint charges, the four officers and stockholders of Food Mart and Del Norte shared in the brokerage fees collected by Davis in these transactions. Boyce House Recalls Campaigner Ralph DALLAS Memories of a long-ago campaign: In 1938, when Senator Ralph Yarborough was making his first state race and I was handling his publicity, we sawover in his native East Texasthe first dogwood blossoms of the season \(the first I had ever seen, for I was car, sprang out, and got two sprigs for our lapels. When we reached El Paso, where he had started in the practice of law, he hurried, with boyish eagerness, to the park in the center of the city and on over to the pool to see the alligators again. He suggested we have dinner in Sputnik Uber Alles HOUSTON American Legionnaires \(8th tion here last week thought the U.S. must move to regain the upper hand in space satellite propaganda. Accordingly, the convention resolved that the U. S. delegation to the U.N. make it known that German scientists captured by the Russians in 1945 were “largely responsible” for the launching of the Soviet satellite, and that, therefore, the U.S. has not been outstripped by Soviet science. The convention also resolved to condemn the use of federal troops in Little Rock, and called on the State Department to cease sending jazz musicians abroad as ambassadors of American goodwill and culture. Juarez, and we did. Afterwards, as we walked around looking at the shops, we came to the jail. “Would you like to see it?” he asked. I thought he was jesting, but when I said yes he accosted the sentry and we were admitted for a sight-seeing tour. Judge Yarborough’s knowledge of Texas history was amazing, and in order that I might see some interesting spot for the first time, he would drive out of his way and lose valuable campaigning time. For example, Langtry. Incidentally, the roof of Judge Roy Bean’s old Jersey Lilly building was almost worn out and I wrote an article about it. Whether as a result or merely a coincidence, the State Highway Department repaired it soon afterward. Yarborough was an eloquent speaker. At Elgin, he cited a bill which one of his opponents had voted for as a state senator, and the description which he gave of the provisions of the measure was so stirring that, afterwards, a citizen walked along the street and, with a pocket-knife, slashed each of that opponent’s placards as he came to them and his fellow townsmen looked on approvingly. And at Richmond, Yarborough spoke with such eloquence that when he had finished, a dozen men piled into cars and drove to Rosenburg to hear the speech all over again!
