which sells $20 million worth of
burley tobacco each year.

it down to 30 and after a week
I cut five more and so on. I put

After nearly a decade of conse

Coasters are now faced with the
possibility of the league's coUapse
Reason for th; pessimistic out
look expressed by the league
offcials is the lack of support re received
ceived received from players and fans of
the loop who have stayed away
from all of the three meetings
held so far in an effort to get
1957 plans underway.
In a final effort to enlist the
support of the Atlantic S.de, the
League has scheduled another
meeting for tonight at the
Margarita Service Center. Due to
the apparent shortage of player
material, all prospective players,
whether already assigned to a
team or not, arc urged to attend
the meeting or get in touch with
a league official prior to the meet meeting
ing meeting if other matters prevent their
being there in person.
Poor attendance at previous
meetings have made it impossible
for league officials to formulate
definite plans as to an opening
date, the number of teams to par participate,
ticipate, participate, or to complete any de details
tails details necessary for the opening.
Hopes have been expressed that
the league could open on Jan. 6
but as time keeps passing away,

WASHINGTON, Dec. 16 UP) UP)-Rep.
Rep. UP)-Rep. Kenneth B. Keating R)NY),
top Republican on the House Ju Judiciary
diciary Judiciary Committee, urged Con Congress
gress Congress today to bring the nation's
wiretap laws up to date in light
of recent Supreme Court rulings.
The New York congressman said
mittee action early next year on
! his bill to permit wiretapping by
authorized FBI and state agents
It also would allow wiretap ev
i idence obtained under court order
to be used in national security
The Supreme Court ruled last
Monday that wiretap evidence ob obtained
tained obtained by state officers could not
; be admitted in federal courts even
by state constitutions and laws.
The court handed down its de
cision in interpreting Section 605
of the Federal Communications
Act. Previously the act's ban on
wiretapping had been applied only
tot he admission of wiretap ev evidence
idence evidence obtained by federal agents.
Keating said a number of states
officials under court supervision
since Congress passed the federal
law. He said he did not believe
Congress meant to bar the states
from authorizing wiretaps, but
that was the way the court ruled.
"For that reason," he said in
a statement, i snail urge uiai
our committee give early consid
eration to a proposal I have made
to eliminate, once and for all, any
doubt left by the present language
of the law."
While declaring that wiretapping
is dirty Dusiness, Aeanng saia
that law officers fighting public
enemies should be allowed to tap
