Mason City Globe-Gazette (Newspaper) - March 23, 1937, Mason City, Iowa TWO MASON CITY GLOBEGAZETTE MAKCH 23 1937 to icach liberal objectives and Moley when the latter conclud ed his prepared statement When Moley conceded the su preme court should pay atten tion to the political thought as expressed at the polls Neely asked if it had not failed to do so It is too broad to say it hasnt paid any attention to the political thought Moley replied Do you think the court should exercise legislative power There ought lo be restrictions one which would impose upon one present chief execu almost sole responsibil ity of determining the final objec tives arid liberalism and which divides not only a party but a movement Would Impair Traditions I am opposed to it he added because 1 believe that even if it did temporarily remove an ob stacle to the evolution of progres sive reform it would in the end impair those institutional methods and traditions which make pro gressive evolution possible I am opposed to this plan because I believe Uhat there is a better way to achieve the immediate and the ultimate objective Moley contended that the Roose velt billwas submitted as a makeshift unsatisfactory panacea accompanied by apologies that better solution is not possible It seems to me he contended that a moment such as this when economic life has risen to some thing like a normal here I am merely repeating the statement of fact presented by the administration in the past cam this is the time for carefulreasoned planning In a word the time has come for the best ofremedies and not the sec ond best Not Permanent Solution This proposal does not offer a permanent solution It does not prevent the recurrence exactly the same evil it is designed to I believe in the purposes ofthis new deal But I am not for thisnewdeal alone I am for fu ture new deals as well unhamp ered by the dead hand of the past Basing his objection to the bill on still another ground Moley aigued that the proposal was in adequate because it would still leave congiess without the spe cific powers it needs to legulate industry and agricultuie in the public interest Sound Moley said would dictate that of reform the new court is expected enthusiastically to ap prove be determined in advance GreaterFederal Control Heargued that it the reforms tended toward a greater federal control of economic life Even a rejrivigorated court would not validate these reforms under the constitution as it now stands If the reforms tended otherwise he rsaid then supporters of the plan will have bought a pig in on the court with reference to that power Have Legislative Power Do you think it ought to have legislative power Yes Do you think it was intended by the makers of the constitution that the court should have legisla tive power and make laws No not make laws Moley re plied There was a brief clash between Rigid Inspection of All Texas Schools Expected a Moley said he whether the plan doubled also would com pletely fulfill the requirement of haste which seems to be one of the major arguments of its pro ponents estimated it would be 1939 pefore thebill Tthenew court set up and the new measures presented for adjudica tion No Speed Advantage This does not suggest in tlia matter of speed he added a great advantage over ah alterna tive method by which the admin istration might put its great pres tige and1 powerv behind an amend ment or several amendments We who honestly believe in the purposes of the president Moley said but oppose his reor ganization of the court can not help but see in his course the per petuation of a basic wrong Does the president mean tha we shall have no more amend ments to the constitution Does he mean that in the future there willbe change to meet the chang ing times only through interpreta tion Does he mean that the con stitution must always be what the judges say it is Neely Cross Examiner Senator Neely D W Va started the cross examination o Neely and Senator Borah as the Idaho senator contended Neely was not permitting Moley to ans wer the questions Have the new deal objectives in giving relief to mum wages arid maximum hours obtained Neely asked j Want Minimum Wage No andI dont think they can under the constitution as it has been interpreted Moley replied If we want minimum wages and maximum hours it is my belief the constitution will have to be amended Moleyexplained that I would enthusiastically support in my small way any amendment agreed on by the liberal members of con gress and the president Senator Logan DKy read a former statement by Moley hold ing that the constitution was flex ible and should be so interpreted bythe court If the court has put the con stitution in a straightjacket your position is it should be amended amended and amended Logan asked Would Rather Amend I would rather amend amend and amend Moley replied than pack pack and pack I agree wlih you Logan said I dont like the proposal we are considering but I cant find a better way Anotherto speak out Tuesday on the presidents court reorgani zation plan was Senator Andrews DFla He urged the senate to approve a constitutional amend ment he has proposed under which justices would be compelled to re tire at 75 Senator Bailey DN Car took exception to the opinion given by Wheeler Monday that the demo cratic dissenters could agree quickly To Oppose Amendments He said he would oppose amendments such as suggested1 by Wheeler and OMahoney which he believes tend to curb the court or interfere its func tions Wheelers amendment would empower congress to override a supreme court decision by a two thirds vote OMahoneys would equire a twothirds vote by the ourt to invalidate a law The Wheeler proposal in which Senator Bone DWash concur ed is patterned after the Madi Buildines Closed as Safety Experts Hunt for Any Blast Dangers NEW LONDON Tex Eigid inspection of every rural school in the vast east Texas oil lield area was the expected after math Tuesday ol the disastrous London school explosion caused experts agreed by accumulated gas School doors were shut as safety experts began a search for pos sible similar conditions that

congressional powers He emphasized that he was con sidering in his speech only the question of constitutionality states fire insurance department told a military court of inquiry Monday he had located another school in the vicinity endangered by escaping gas Gas Was Escaping A test a few hours ago Haw ley told the investigators at the Carlisle school near here showed gas was escaping underneath the place at the rate of 720 cubic feet a day all of which makes this occasion all the more omnipotent Engineer Li B Newsum of the state fire insurance departmen aided in discovering the Carlisle leak if a superficial inspection gives results like that he said wha will a general inspection give This is just an average school Dr E P Schoch Texas univer sity chemist and authority on ex plosions said all signs pointed t an accumulation of gas under th basement floor as the cause of th London tragedy worst of its kim in the nation Use Free Supply Other witnesses testified tha school officials switched from us of a commercial gas to a free sup ply obtained by piping into th residue line of an oil company las January Gas radiators heated th school The military board did no make publican opinion on 11 findings and will not do so unles specifically requested by Gov James V Allrect Hawley said This traged would not have happened if cer tain regulatory measures had bee taken He urged legislation tha would include astate electric law a state boiler safety code a stat exit code and other general safet measures And give the slate authority to make em behave he added Martial Law Uftca Martial law was lifted as Dr Schoch concluded his lengthy opinion and the court adjourned Two possible theories for igni tion of the gas advancedby Dr Schochincluded the throwing of alight switchandpossible sparks from electric equipment definite origin of the explosion vas not given but the professor pointed out It could have been on any one of the 72 radiators Superintendent of Schools W C Shaw whose son was
