The petitioners, R. H. Johnson & Company, a partnership, R. H. Johnson & Company, Inc., and Rupert H. Johnson, seek review of an order of the Securities and Exchange Commission, entered November 16, 1955, which revoked the registrations of the partnership and corporation as brokers and dealers, and found Rupert H. Johnson was a cause of the revocation. The petitioners were found to have wilfully violated §§ 10(b) and 15(c)(1) of the Securities Exchange Act of 1934, 15 U.S.C.A. §§ 78j(b) and 78o(c)(1).


The voluminous record made in an exhaustive hearing amply supports the Commission's order.
