^*  In Number 59, all the sitting Justices concur. In Numbers 57 and 58, Mr. Justice REED, Mr. Justice DOUGLAS and Mr. Justice RUTLEDGE concur. Mr. Justice FRANKFURTER concurs in that part of the opinion which discusses the District Court's decree but concurs in the judgment of affirmance in a separate opinion.
