Americas low er tribunals both state and federal it certainly is preem i n e n 11 y true of the su preme court of the United States because the latter is a court from which there is no appeal Besides in effect it is much more than a court It does not pass laws but it decides what they which frequently amounts practi cally to making them Or it can veto an act of congress by pro nouncing it unconstitutional Un like a presidential veto the supreme courts veto cannot be overridden The supreme justices also hold or ifice for life Once In there is no changing them AND of late the U S supreme court has been under heavy at tack as predicted It is not charged with dishonesty but with bias The accusation does not come from any irresponsible source It comes from many of the ablest members of the U S senate who complain that recent supreme court apointments by President Hoover are calculated to continue if not to aggravate this bias It has been charged not only once upon the appointment of

the board confidently believes his income will be im proved If he could get more money for four bushels of wheat than he now gets for five what is the in centive for raising the extra bushel exhausting the fertility of the soil and going to the extra labor of rais ing it only in the last analysis to reduce his to increase it He suggested that the farmer re store the rapidly disappearing
