LB Suppose you get into a legal argument Suppose your opponent angrily cries Ill sue you all the way to the Supreme Court Laugh in his face after first making sure he is smaller than you The odds are over whelmingly in your favor that he will never make it The Supreme Court opened its ornate legal shop this month If everything goes normally by the time it recesses in June it will have been sent around a thousand cases These will be the residue of more than a million lawsuits filed each year most of them in state courts many of them pica yuneissues Yet even the cases that finally reach the court arent sure of a hearing THE COURT WILL pick and choose among the thousand and will finally wind up hearing ar guments in maybe 175 cases Every department of our gov ernment has grown enormous ly and the court is no exception When it first met in 1790 it promptly adjourned because it had nothing to do In the first 10 years it decided only 56 cases But business soon picked up So niany cases landed in the Su preme Court that by 1877 Chief Justice Morrison R Waite was complaining A chief justice is simply a It got so bad that in 1925 Con gress freed the court from slav ery The justices were given the fight to decide for them selves what cases they thought were worthhearing The court has come in for bit ter criticism in recent pecially since its school segrega tion decision of May 17

into the nations economy The talks got under way with4 a warning from Federal Medi ation Chief Joseph F gan that he would move back into negotiations Monday un less was reach ed by midnight Sunday The U S Supreme Court Wednesday rejected a govern ment plea that the USW be compelled to file by noon Thursday its appeal of a Taft Hartley 80 day back towork order The govern ment hoped to wipe out a six day stay granted the union by the U S Third Circuit Court of Appeals in Philadelphia Rejection of the government appeal by the high court meant the union had until Monday to file its appeal of the lower court decision which held up the backtowork order against the strikers The Monday deadline was set by the appeals court in Philadelphia last Tuesday The government had asked the Supreme Court tor an earliler deadline because there is a pressing need to settle the in junction dispute The union opposed the gov ernment claim and said a de lay of even weeks in resolving the legal battle would not ir reparably damage the nation Arthur J Goldberg the unions general counsel said after the courts rejection of the speedup plan that we still intend to proceed as ex peditiously as YOURE RIGHT ITS
