Bismarck e'ollce Magistrate I. M. Oseth had tentatively approved the request, in the interest of furthering ,public understanding and coopera- tion in reducirg accidents and in- creasing traffic safety. "I very much regret that this op- portunity to put out information re- garding traffic and other subjects failed to come about," Col. Oseth said. "But as a jurist I cannot go counter to the adapted and declared ethics of the Judical Council. "The Council's purpose--to pre- vent sensationalism in court pro- cedure--is a good one, but I do net neccesairly agree" with the rigid wording," Judge Oseth continued. "Cannon 35 makes no allowance for worthy purposes such as those which led us to approve the broad- casts. I believe, however, that it might prove disastrous to set a precedent in conflict with the can- on. ,p Canon 35 is headed "Improper Publicizing of Court Proceedings," and staes: HELD IN $100,000 BAIL IN ASSAULT CASE--These four teen- agers were held in $25,000 bail each in New York pending further hearing into their alleged criminal assault on a 14- year-old white girl. She testified that Jacob Bethea (tol right), 16, and John Rich (lower right), 16, assaulted her While she was held by Edward Jacobs (top left), 17, and Henry Stokes (lower left), 16. The girl was not identified. "Proceedings in court should be conducted with fitting dignity and decorum. The taking of photographs in the courtroom, during sessions of the court under all circumstances, or during recesses between sessions without the special permission of the court, and the broadcasting of court proceedings, are calculated to de- tract from the essential dignity of the proceedings, degrade the court, and create misconceptions with re- spect thereto in the mind of the public, and should no% he permitted." The North Dakota Council in- cludes Supreme court and district court judges, four members of the bar, the dean of ,the University of North Dakyta law school, the at- torney general and one county judge. A new law passed by the 1959 !legistlature adds retired judges to this list. i Col. Oseth pointed out that no pressure had been brought to bear, and th,t he, himself, had not been aware of the canon. "In fact," he said, "about half of the lawyers I've talked with say they had not i been aware of this strong statement against broadcasting and photo- graphing court proceedings." Judicial Council cannons are no legally binding upon attorneys and court judges, but their effect is very much the same, for all practical pur- poses. Observed State Supreme Court Justice James Morris this week: "I have never known an attorney or judge in this state to violate a Ju- dicial Council cannon knowingly." --C]--- Fried or roasted meat, inevitably exposed to air, takes on a rancid off- flavor sooner when frozen than meat simmered before freezing or frozen in a sauce.

Cows turn their share of North a $401, million annual income for dairymen. That's to say nothing, McLeod adds. of the extra income from cows and calves sold for slaughter. According to figures from the North Dakota Crop and Livestock Reporting Service. the biggest part of the state's dairy check to farmers comes from the dairy production sold for buttermaking. Last year, farmers took in nearly $30 million from it in North Dakota. The state ranks fifth, nationally, in butter production. Whole milk sold to plants and dealers, and that retailed by farm- ers themselves, accounts for another MARATHON SWIMMEL--Greased from head to toe, five en- trants adjust their goggles in Atlantic City, N.J., for the nnual 25-mile swim race around Absecon Island. From left are: Phyllis Clarke, Canada; Joan Florentin, U.S.; Christa Herbig, Germany, Myra Thompson, and Greta Andersen, U.S. come--about $7 million last year. The $3 million worth of milk used on the farm makes up the balance of bossy's contribution to North Da- kota's farm economy. The past few years cow numbers have decreased in North Dakota. From 1955 to 1959, cows and heifers 2 years and older declined 14 per teat in number. Adams and Slope are the only counties showing an in- crease in dairy cattle population. The trend in dairying is toward fewer herds but onec that are larger and higher producing. About 352,000 cows in the state are now valued at some $80 million. URGENT CALL--Presldent David J.
