The judgments in these cases were affirmed at the October Term, 1941. 316 U. S. 316 U.S. 584. Because the issues in all three cases were of the same character as those brought before us in other cases by applications for certiorari at the present term, we ordered a reargument and heard these cases together with Murdock v. Pennsylvania, post, p. 319 U. S. 105. For the reasons stated in the opinion of the Court in the Murdock case and in the dissenting opinions filed in the present cases after the argument last term, the Court is of opinion that the judgment in each case should be reversed. The judgments of this Court heretofore entered in these cases are therefore vacated, and the judgments of the state courts are reversed.

So ordered.

For dissenting opinions of MR. JUSTICE REED, and MR. JUSTICE FRANKFURTER, see post, pp. 319 U. S. 117-140.
