The court also did not accept plaintiff's contention that the synchronous motors are essential for the functioning of the subject movements. The measurement called for in par. 367(h), should include the width of such motors which extend beyond the pillar plate, and held that the measurement called for is confined to the measurement of the pillar plate itself.

(see TOOTHBRUSHES; ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSHES, C.D. 2622). ELECTRIC TOOTHBRUSHES

Certain electric toothbrushes consisting of 4 toothbrush heads, a handle with a tip or switch, and a motor and a cabinet for batteries, were properly classified as “toothbrushes” under par. 1506, Tariff Act of 1930. The claim for classification under par. 353, of said act as "articles having as an essential feature an electrical element or device, in chief value of metal,” was overruled for failure to prove the component material of chief value was metal.

In addition, the court did not accept the claim that the electric toothbrush is "more than” a toothbrush, since allegedly it massages the gums and is electrically operated. Kaysons Import Corp., C.D.

TRANSPARENCIES
LITHOGRAPHIC ARTICLES

Certain lithographically printed ovals, classified as "transparencies” under par. 1406, Tariff Act of 1930, by virtue of the similitude provisions of par. 1559, of said act, were claimed to be either "labels" or “decalcomanias” within said par. 1406.

Setting forth definitions of the words "label" and "decalcomanias," the court held that the record was inadequate to sustain plaintiff's burden of proving that the importation was either a label or decalcomania. Accordingly, the protests were overruled. F. H. Kaysing,

Merchandise, described as seamless steel tubes, was properly classified under par. 328, Tariff Act of 1930, as “iron or steel tubes, not specially provided for” rather than as claimed, under par. 312, of said act, as 'structural shapes.”

The suggestion that the tubes as imported were dedicated for use as couplings would be futile since neither tubing nor couplings qualify as 'structural shapes." John A. Steer Co., a/c Charles A. Koons, Inc., C.D. 2667..

SPECIFIC V. GENERAL DESIGNATION
Paints or stains containing alcohol

The subject merchandise, used in coating cedar shakes and con-
taining less than 30 per centum of alcohol but substantial quantities
of titanium dioxide, was held to be more specifically provided for
under par. 89, Tariff Act of 1930, and accordingly properly clas-
sifiable as "compounds and mixtures containing titanium" rather
than under par. 24 as "chemical mixtures or alcoholic compounds,
not specially provided for."

The remaining item involved herein, notwithstanding that it was
in the form of a paste and required the addition of a solvent before
it could be used as a stain or paint, was, at the time of importation,
commercially fit only for use as a stain or paint. Therefore, it was
held to be more specifically provided for under par. 66, as “pigments,
colors, stains, and paints” than under par. 24, Tariff Act of 1930.

VINE LEAVES IN BRINE
EDIBLE PREPARATIONS FOR HUMAN CONSUMPTION

Certain vine leaves imported in brine in bottles, were held to have
been properly classified under par. 1558, Tariff Act of 1930, as “non-
enumerated manufactured articles which are edible preparations
for human consumption.”'

The court held that the vine leaves, processed after importation by repetitive washes, then repacked in brine in bottles for retail sale, are not "vegetables” in the tariff sense, within the purview of par. 375, of said act; nor, since they are not in the raw state, and are not nonmanufactured, they are "unenumerated raw or nonmanufactured articles” under Par. 1558, of said act. Although vine leaves are a vegetable substance, inasmuch as vine leaves packed in brine, are not a crude or nonmanufactured vegetable substance, the court held they were not free of duty under par. 1722 of said act.

Certain items, invoiced as bangle arms, springs, and rivets, when
assembled, formed and functioned as the watch bracelet portion of
a uniquely designed "bracelet watch.” The court held such items
were properly classified as “parts of watch bracelets” under par.
1527(c)(2), Tariff Act of 1930, notwithstanding the fact that, because
of their design and construction, the items were dedicated to use with
but one type of watch. U.S. Time Corp., C.D. 2641

Baskets

The subject merchandise, consisting of various articles of rattan-
core or rattancore and peel, was classified under par. 411, Tariff
Act of 1930, as "baskets in chief value of wood.” Plaintiffs claimed
that some of the articles were classifiable as "manufactures of wood,
not specially provided for under par. 412, while the remaining
articles were classifiable as "furniture” under said paragraph.

The court held that an article, otherwise qualifying as a basket, is not excluded from that classification by reason of embodying no woven work.

Defining a basket as a semiflexible vessel or container, used to hold, protect, or carry, the court sustained the protests as to those items not meeting such description, and overruled the others. Royal Cathay Trading Co. and W. Ś. Byrnes & Co. et al., C.D.

2662. Not specially provided for Japanese oak mosaic flooring

The claim for classification of Japanese oak mosaic flooring
as “flooring of Japanese white oak,” under par. 404, Tariff Act
of 1930, was overruled because the record did not establish that
the merchandise was chiefly used as flooring throughout the
United States. Accordingly, classification was as "manufac-
tures of wood, not specially provided for’ under par. 412. Mitsui

An alternative claim for free entry under par. 1806, of said act as being "suitable for sticks for sunshades” in that the importations were suitable for awning uses was denied because sunshades in the tariff sense, are not awnings but articles used like parasols or umbrellas.
