MONDAY APEIL CONSISTS OF TWO SECTIONS SECTION ONE NO 153 Reversalby High Court Stewart Speculates on WhoseVictory It Was By CHARLES P It is an open whether support ers or opponents President J Roosevelts plan lor supreme court reorganiza tion profited I more by Justice Owen JRoberts recent flop on the issue of the c o nstitutionality of minimum j wage legislation I It will be re 1 called that orig inally the court was 5 Justices Roberts Willis Van D e v a n t e r James C McReynolds George Sutherland and Pierce Butler to 4 Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes and Justices Louis D Brandeis Harlun F Stone and Benjamin N Cardozo against such legislation Now Roberts has gone over to the side of Chief Justice Hughes et leaving what was the ma jority group in a minority Pro and Con Folk who oppose the presiden tial proposal to modernize the courtargue that Roberts flop proves the present courts ability to do its own modernizing On the opposite hand the reor ganizations faction reasons that the courts reversal of itself dem onstrates that its own membership is none too sure of its own wis And it does seem like an erratic tribunal However what guarantee is there that it would be any less er ratic with 15 instead of 9 mem bers Nine split 5 to 4 then one of the 5 goes over to the 4 and there is a reversal If there were 15 why couldn i the bench split 8 to after which why

op position is not partisan however that is disinterested The language that these dis putants are beginning to use in debate between themselves on the senate floor is anything but par liamentary They do not employ the actual term but they do not disuse it much On Hot Spot Justice Roberts is placed on a pretty hot spot Chief Justice Hughes and Jus tices Brandeis Stone and Cardozo are standpatters on one side of the minimum wage controversy Justices Van Devanter McRey nolds Sutherland and Butler are standpatters on the other side Those eight are consistent Roberts switched He can con tend that he changed his mind Others however are sure to in sist and do that he was buf faloed a terrible charge to make against a supreme court justice It may be contempt of court but it is audible WOMAN HIT
