FMJMMER ASHINGTON Aug 22 Now that the new deal has emerged victor ious in its first court contest one of the most im portant and sig nificant phases of the new ad mi n i s t r ations program nas been reached It was some thing worth watching when the oil refiners of Texas came into the District i of Columbia Su premo Court attacking the indus trial recovery act and asking that it be set aside Here was a test of one of the most weighty prob lems that have arisen since adoption of the constitution itself The refiners complained that the president is exercising powers which must he exercised by con gress aloneAnd when their coun sel was asked by the presiding jus tice whether he thought the act was based on federal powers over in terstate commerce or power given to the federal government to meet emergency conditions he answered flatly The act cant be sustained on any grounds Then Court Speaks But the court it has developed indicated that it holds a contrary view by deciding that all laws in cluding the constitution should be read in emergencies in the light of the law of necessity The final decision of courseand one which might mean that the pro gram of the new deal will either stand or with the su preme court of the nation j It highly doubtful whether the Q su coit twill make decl 7 I The court had aajourneauntll Oc t tober with the faclUtfes the jus tices have at their disposal it would seem almost impossible for deci sions affecting the new deal to be handed down during the next session which comes to a close in May 1934 Necessity Or Precedent The philosophy of the court as

Jobbers WASHINGTON Aug 22 declaration that the national re covery administration would not countenance unreasonable price in creases was made today by Hugh S Johnson in addressing retail dealers at the opening of a hearing on their code of competition The retail trade was urged by Johnson to resist price Increases in the near future from jobbers who supply them with their goods I say Johnson said resent these price increases and we will support you The recovery administrator as serted that so far as speculative price rises were concerned his ad ministration considered it our duty to see that there is no runaway market Meet New Costs He said the national industrial recovery act would increase prices to meet new costs imposed by com pliance with the trade charters but just because of this there is no reason to go way beyond If you do this you just kill the goose that lays the golden egg The house that we are trying to build will collapse like n house of cards I The retail trade hearing was dc I scribed by Johnson as one of the most significant of any so far held The retail trade embracing virtual ly all stores and shops except drug and Itood affects inovfs employers and nacre employes than any of the Describes Purposes Johnson described the purposes of the recovery act nnd told the retail dealers It provided an opportunity for the countrys great industrial units to band together to wipe out intolerable conditions of depres sion He added that the act did not need czarism to administer it He isald those who did not co operate not only were hitting their fellows but were helping to perpet uate the depression In enforcing compliance with the Blue Eagle provisions Johnson as serted there would be no violence no man hunting and no boycotting But he said the administration would move to uncover cheaters behind the Blue Eagle and then we are going to move in and take the Blue Eagle right off thetr windows Need Coopnration You cant execute a great na tional law like this on ballyhoo and hooey Johnson said The purpose now is to try to get as wide a meas ure of cooperation as possible Af ter that has been it is almost over we are go ing to ace to those who are doing the cheating The purpose of this act was to enable all trades and industries to rid themselves of those chiseling practices which have been running through your industries You can de cree that ruthless competition and price cutting is to go That you may be sure doesnt mean that the government is in business Johnson Making Progress Johnson concentrated his en tire attention on ending
