PAGE TWO BLYT'riEVILLE. ROOSEVELT 11 Prospects Aie He \Vi' Win Despite Opposition Stared by Pioposal By RODNEY WASHINGTON, Feb 11 —Despite Strong opposition ^htch hns arisen against the president's supreme court reoragnizallon plan—some of it In quarters where It wasn't anticipated—there Is still plenty ol reason to believe the measuie v>IV pass the Senate as veil as the House. Robse\elt himself Is confident His pride and prdstige are Involved as never before in a legislative fight. He is readv, according to those •nho hiue talked \\ith him, to lie ' as tough as II takes " Didn't Exited Split The worst blow, the administration-has had Avas the refusal of suSi '"undiluted Senators Norrls of Nebraska, and Wheeler of iiontarin, to fall in line behind the plan to appoint additional Jus- tices'to the supreme court when justices over 70 fail to letlre The liberals'Inside and outside Congress are split Senator LaFollette of Wisconsin, leads the contingent of Senate progressives standing by Roosevelt. Roosevelt did not expect this split His emissaries are urg- ing'the .wandering ones not to fight the battle of the Republican piily and the American Liberty, League. Dissenting liberals nearlj a 11 favor n',constitutional amendment to achieve what Roosevelt hopes to get by a short cut The one pio- posal bshind which seekers of an amendment are getting togethci, calls-tor a I congressional vct-6 over the supreme court Even if a two- thirds .vote to upset a supreme court decision ns to constitutionalltj ucfc ieo.ulred, this plan would Involve n rmlchimore \lial transfer ot now ci and upset of fundamental go\- einment pattern than the prOjiosal of-.thc president , Roosevelt «Ul,ptomlsc to support such-all amendment: In-return for h'aU\a .dozen more Senate votes for court refort now. But If the presldeht can't get the liberals all llneci up with him in soine - such' iiiarinei 1 , there is .the more unpleasant possibility he v.111 \\lti bj trading judicial pa'ronas« ^sith pohtlcal machines and materialistic senators Rcarty^-to' Brltijj.Pressure •Rbosevelt-ls,alliset ; to iio ruthless. If he finds it iicccssary^ the pits- sure applied to, individual members will bo lieavlei Ihan^anylhing they 1 previously lm\e encountered And tlip^boib; dangled before undecided inemBers will be coriespondingly more tempting The Roosevelt recoid on appointment of fedeial judges isn't pretty-and it may. become far worse. As the bill nov. stands the president conceivably might have ns many as a dozen appointments to Sa0,0dp-a : ycar jobs'oil the supreme court, about as miiny cii'ciilt court justiceships at $15,000 and even more district judgeships at, $10,000 New ]udgss must be confirmed bj the senate, but federal judges are a recognized Item of senatorial pit- ronage. , ' Packing' 1 Not Ncn This prospccf. Is not savory But remember that Hie great John Marshall v,as ' packed 1 ' into the supreme court in the_,last month ot President John Adams' term so he could obstruct the liberal program of the fncomlrig* Jefferson Grant appointed two new justices only af tci assurances of support Theodore RooscNelt accepted Oliver Wendell Holmes only after being assured Holmes tfould be sympathetic to his program Few persons believe Herbert Hoo\er's appointment of Chief Justice Hughes had nothing to do \vith Hughes' campaign speeches for Hoover in 1928, Roosevelt .doesn't want io be an impotent .executive because of supreme court obstruction. That was ivhy he. made his proposal instead of scekihg ( nn~amendmcnt'he feared he couldn't get and, that's why he mil be In no sense Squeamish in lighting for a victory.
