Anril l,~Th. fact that h-Hli sides claim thcv "ivi" been helped, and li:il the judiciary Issii; has bscn daiif!';d by tiv_> S-i- inemc Courts new minimum \va ' decision, doasn'i, really menu this major developmjii'. hasn't actually made lha walrus ]ir.!:UlH!>'. In effect, on? man has am-.>:i:!...! the Constitution. A few days a'^o Ih2 C'j'istiiiiti'in according to the only authoritative interpretation—that of ths Stiniv-me Court—said states couldn't Dixvs minimum wage laws for women nir.l children. Now the Constitution says .'.n:-n laws are permissible.' Ths difference is that Justice Owen J. Roberts, youngest ineinhii of the cuiirT, who vole:l no in the 5 to -4 decision against the New York minimum wage, now has <>iv~ eu his support, lo Washington state's minimum wasse law in a|' r 'i>.

This ability of Roberts lo switch from one side to the other on such an important issue makes him a -very important man. Tic becomes even more important than the President, ai such limes, as he is able to say what shall and what shall not bs the law of the land. Hughes Omils One Fact Chief Justice Hughes'conspicu- ously emitted one fad when he undertook to explain how a court majority, such as was now approving the Washington law, had turned down tli2 New York law last year. Last yaar, he said, the court had held that it could decide only .whether the New York case wa= (•istlntniishable ("m the Adkins case in 1923. in which a District of Columbia minimum wage law was killed, mill whether' the stnt? of New York had asked for a reconsideration of eoiistiU:ti-'in' principles decided in the Adkins case. The court decided (1ml (he state had not tasked for such a reconsideration and hence wasn't enlithr to it. (Hughes was a member of the four-man minority which stood for upholding !l)e act.) But lost fall the states o( New York and Illinois came back tc assert (hat the court had been mistaken aiic{ they requested, em- phalicjuiy. such a recousiderat.iii? in a petition (or rehearing. The petition for rehjr.rin-j tagged that the court not permit the rights of millions of working wn-n^n to b? jcoiiarctized and obscured by lejal technicalities. And the court refused to ~rant the rehearing. That was before President Roosevelt sent ills sensational message to Congress asking for power to "pack" the court. The opponents of the President's plan now sny the court has proved it can function (Isxibly on issues of major social-economic importance. Administiationiats say the decision helps them in th=ir difficult task or convincing tne cmmtrr that the Contitutlon isn't a fixeil. immutable document which compels the court to interpret it along hard and fast niles. Also, they say, the dissent of the four most'conserva- tive justices has shown "f.iat "\V2 must get those four men off." Ends Bizarre Situation It is at least a striking sidelight on the effect of Roberts' derision to uphold the Washington law— which means many other states also can have minimum wa°e laws— that it ends a bizarre situation in which, although a majority of justices who had participated in minimum wage law decisions had found sikh laws to be constitutional, the laws had b°;n killed. An Oregon law had been uph?IS in 1917 because the court <;nlit 4 IT 4 on It. The District of Columbia law was Invalidated by 5 to 3 and (he New York law by S to -1. The •. combined box scor? on th? thres decisions-.showed that ten t:stices had voted in favor of such legislation mid seven against. Counting (he Washington stats decision the quart:). O f Sutherland, McHeynolds, Sutler and Van Devanter has stood colidly against minimum wage laws in three .successive decisions. But on the third nml last occasion they couldn't get i\ fifth man to go along with them. into" the refreshments.
