SIX MASON'CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE, DECEMBER 21 • 1936 SHOWDOWN SEEN BETWEEN COURT AND NEW DEAL Congress May Seek Change in Constitution or Act Within It. By EDWARD J. DUFFY WASHINGTON, (JP) — The forthcoming congress is widely expected to go down in history either as an adept stepper within the constitution as it stands or the proposer of an amendment to enlarge federal powers. In the political campaign. President Roosevelt and his leaders rededicated themselves to NRA and AAA objectives and promised "action." After running on a record which showed a six to three score against the administration in the supreme court, they have interpreted the overwhelming victory as a mandate to carry on. Barring changes on the court due to deaths, many here believe some sort of showdown inevitable between the new deal and the constitutional views written in the NRA, Gufisy and AAA decisions Demands since the election by organized labor and farmer s' spokesmen who supported Roosevelt recall the powers once exercised by those since outlawed agencies. Interest Is Universal. i With the capital taking on the j bustle and suspense that heralds j the convening of a new congress, interest in the constitutional question is universal. The way arriving legislators talk indicates that the budgetary, neutrality and other debates may all be conducted before that broad backdrop of differences over fundamentals. Just where does the line of federal authority stop and "state's rights' 1 begin? Shall we define "general welfare" for once and aL".' Exactly what does "due process of law'" mean? So the aueitions run as legisla- tors intent upon regulation of wages and hours and control of crop production re-study supreme court decisions bearing on those problems. In one respect the atmosphere is reminiscent of March, 1933, when congress and the country looked so unquestioningly to the president for leadership. Today again the lead is for him to take. His close advisers say they don't know what he intends; but quickly add it will not be retreat. New to America. The situation is as new to American history in some respects as was the abdication of a king tor love in English history. True, the supreme court decisions have precipitated historic arguments before. The Bred Scott decision of 1857, holding congress powerless to ban slavery in the territories, was castigated in the Lincoln platform of 1850. Invalidation of the legal tender act in 18VO was followed by the filling of two vacancies on the bench with men who brought about a reverse vote by five to four. The democratic platform of 189B stood out unavailingly against annulment of the federal income tax law the year before. That decision led eventually to the income tax amendment. Never before was there an election, however, in which the candidates pledged to seek a constitutional amendment "in necessary." Unless cmestion.s of wage and hour standards and "unfair business practices" can be answered effectively otherwise, the democratic platform called for an amendment looking to joint federal and state jurisdiction. Wages and Hours. Mr. Roosevelt already has sought to encourage more state legislation on wages and hours, unemployment insurance and old age protection. He promised only recently to supplement the state action when the problems assume an interstate character. In the general opinion, he will recommend attempts at voluntary co-operation and further legislative exploration of constitutional boundaries before broaching an McNally, Rockford Last Civil War Veteran, Dies Funeral Will Be Held at Holy Name Church Tuesday.

But if renewed effort to meet the problems at which NRA and AAA were directed should fall before constitutional barriers, then the amendment question would be faced.
