T/ie Jssi/e The Texas Weekly, which 'is stroiiK- ly opposed to President, Koosovcll's plan for reorganization of tlic supreme CQtirt, makes Die point, thai it is the business of the ju'licinry to be neither "liberal-minded" nor "conservative- minded," but to be judicial. We imagine that President Roosovoll would say that is what is wrong with the supreme court as it is now constituted. He 'believes, and not, without reason, that in a number of instances a majority of the court lias not been content .with the exercise of its purely judicial function but has assumed the policy-determining function that properly belongs to other branches of the . government. And while the president might agree with the Texas editor that the court should be purely a judicial bo'tiy, at the same time he cannot be justly criticized for insisting that, if it is to exercise broader powers, its temper and disposition should be in harmony with that of the people of the United States, as reflected in the legislative and executive officers chosen .by their votes. .' , -i It is along this line that, the real issue in the court controversy is drawn. To those parts of the president's judiciary reform program which are calculated to improve tho functional efficiency of the federal courts there is no serious' objection on the part of anyone. The . 'controversy t is centered entirely iipon;that part of the, program which proposes change in' the personnel of the supreme court. Whatever' effect, for good or ba'cl, the accomplishment of that proposal might; have upon the court's efficiency would be entirely incidental to its main purpose, Svhich very plainly is to bring the political and social philosophy of the court into harmony with that evidenced -by tho American people in ^biennial national elections since 1!>32. Thus yesterday's letter by Chief Justice Hughes, while interesting and informative, had no real bearing upon the' controversy. Tho. chief justice emphasized that he was refraining from any comment or discussion of the question of policy involved in the court proposal, which after all is what the row is about. The university should be the place ot tlic beginning of study. Tlic true scholar never stops. *-Prof. Ross J. Griilith, Butler University. OUT OUR WAY Worth Remembering The house of representatives hits passed the' AIcReynokls neutrality'bill, smashing down all nllempU to broaden its scope. Amoiii! Hie amendments that faile'tl was one, offered by Representative Hamilton Fisli, which would have outlawed the export of munitions regardless of whether there was war or peace abroad. Though it/ was defeated, this plan of Mr. Fish's might be worth remembering, If, by some calalnity, we should get into war tomorrow, a good many American boys would bo killed by guns, airplanes, aijd explosives made in America and sold overseas before war broke out. Mr. Fish was out to prevent that sort of thing from happening; and it is a little bit hard to sec why bis scheme was not a thoroughly sensible one. Ptissing of an Oracle , People who have been acclaiming Postmaster General James A. Farley's uncanny skill as a political prophet might give a thought to tlie coming resignation of Emil Hurja, for years Farley's right-hand man. Mr. llurja has announced that he will presently leave politics to return to privatrr business',: and it is quite possible that this may have an efl'eet on Mr. Farley's gifts as a progiiostiea- tor. For it was Hurja, by all accounts, who collected the. statistics and erected the graphs on which the postmaster general based his •forecasls j . Hurja knew politics as few 'men know- it. For years, Washington correspondents have marked him down as ii man who had an uncanny way of telling just how the cat was going to 'jump, come election fclayi'" It will be interesting to see how the rare Farley gift survives the loss of. this talented lieutenant.

If Jennifer pretended to be asleep when Daphne rose in Hie morning, it was no different from Daphne's pretense of the same thing at night. Jennifer spoke lo her only when it -was necessary and then in monosyllables. But Jennifer took lo giving her strange glances and more thai; once she e:une into the room they shared and stood silently staring for a moment as though there was something she wanted to say. Daphne had to keep her niinrt from thoughts of. Jennifer. A new quiet, a strained haunting in Jennifer's eyes smote her and more than once she was tempted to ask Jennifer to talk to her. Then, thinking of Jennifer and Larry, she was firm again and put her pity out of her heart. said calmly. "Don't I get any!"?• . Five days before the play was •You ve got overylnmg.

"I'm sure I don't know, but if it makes you any more satisfied, you'll be glad to know that you're breaking my heart." "Have you really got one?' : Daphne said. "Yes, it seems that I have.
