WASHINGTON, Feb. 8 (UP) — was rushed .lo crivrcss _, .. rrillcnl moment in .the General Mclors strike, and. whether Intentional or not. it was so carefully timed as lo be an assurance to 'abor and to the ccon- ornb royalists "lliat the New Deal j from other states, did not intend to permit Its guarantees of industrial democracy to be torn to pieces by tho suprerre foiirt." 2—The president himself had gradually evolved this scheme, and finally went Ihe whole hog for It after reports had reached Washington that his Wa 1 Street opposition was raising a war chest to use in, state legislatures a'iaiust ratification of anj' constitutional amendment which would curb any powers now asserted by the court. The alternative which he finally decided to drop was n constitutional amendment proiiosal • which would-' hnve given congress a final'vote over the supreme courl on - questions of constitutionality. 3—Justice Hurlan Fiske Stone, barring .extremely unlikely ac. cident. '"will, be .the next .chief - "jiistice-^-prpbabiy before 'the end of the year. - - ': 4 -According to Secret . (calculations high in the New Deal, Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes, Justice Willis Van De- vauter and Justice Louis D. Brandeis will promptly resign if congress votes to permit Roosevelt to appoint an extra- federal Judge for every sitting federal judge over 70 years old. it Is believed that Justices Suthland and Butler would soon feel compelled to follow them. New Dealers think Justice McReynolds, bitterest and most implacable foe of progressive legislation, would slick to the bitter end. Thus, the only liberal resignation would be that of justice Brandeis, the oldest meui- bem, at 80 years. The five conservative justices eligible for retirement have refused to quit. 5—Administration leaders feel, • tremendously reinforced from a stralegic standpoint by the fact that McReynolds himself, ns attorney general, urged appointment of an additional federal judge to serve with each one who refused to retire at 10, that the late Chief Justice Taft urged automatic retirement nt 10, and that Hughes has written in favor of relirement at 75—an age he will reach In April. 6—Chief danger lo the admin- ternoon, will be in the form of 1 n ro ^' n memorial addressed to United i States senators and congressmen 1 from Arkansas.
