HALL Managing Editor As Our Founding Fathers Planned It TN my visit with you today Id like to get two or three things off my chest that have been troubling me for some little time Ive dealt with both of them edi torially but in this commentary Id like to go into a little greater detail than was possible within the limits of an editorial The first of these subjects that have been troubling me is the pro nouhced tendency through much of my adult life for one branch of government to crowd over into the constitutional and traditional do main of another branch of govern ment The second of these subjects of to me has been the prac tice of Presidents inTnoderri times to select members of the United States Supreme Court on some other basis than demonstrated legal scholarliness And lets be more specific Our Supreme Courtmem bers have been chosen quite large ly out of political considerations Trend Was Stopped Suddenly Now to get on with a discussion of the first of these matters Fifteen or 20 years ago Ameri cans capable of sober thinking were openly disturbed by the trend toward encroachment by the ex ecutive branch of government on what was supposed to be the other coequal and independent branches legislative and judicial That trend had its first real set back jn 1937 when an aroused Con gress refused to along jvith a Presidential1Demand for a law de signed to pack the Supreme Court The proposal would have made the high tribunal obedient to the White at least there And here it should be inter polated as a of fairness that the proposal proved as dis tasteful to enlightened mfetnbers of the party in power as it did to membersjof Jf such had not been the case the never have been Rubber Stamp From that pointoh there was a diminishing willingness on the part of the congress tobe used as a rubber The legislative branchprogressively returned to its traditional role in the triune ofgovernmental responsibility en visioned by our founding jind written into the organic law of our land known as the Constitu tion A point stressed by Dwight D Eisenhower in his campaign for the Presidency last year was that there should be a restoration of the historic rolesamong the three branches of government There shouldbe he contended time and again an attitude of mutual re spect and cooperation each with FBI Fin nlease Kid nap Bill Okla A 17yearold former

the other two All of this is v danger which seems to have passed It was pres ent and real 15 years ago but it isnt existent any more so far as any threat from the executive of government is con New Danger Evolves branch ccrried A Unfortunately however that en croachment by the side of govern ment symbolized by the White House has been succeeded by an other peril to our timehonored bal anceand separation of govern mental functions urider the Ameri cansystem At all levels of government from the local scene clear up to and in cluding our national capital in Washington there are signs at this very moment of a disposition oh the part of the legislative orpolicy making branch of government to exceed its authority a tendency to step over into the areas intended for the administrative and judicial branches Oh the local dimension this trend manifests itself when a school loard employs an staff and then do the administering Itself At the nation allevel it manifests itself in the unending
