\VLJDNESDAV, APRIL 7, 1037 BLVTHEVILLB (AEK.)' COURIER NEWS LITRE TD Doubtful If Votes Have Been Changed by Arguments Over Court UV RODNEY DUTCHER WASHINGTON.—You can hear anything' you want to hear about the effect of the Senate Judiciary Committee! hearings on the progress of the brittle over the President's Supreme Court, plan. None of it, however, can be proved. Candid men on both sides arc willing to express doubt whether the situation is very different now than It would have been hatt the hearings never been held. Numerous views arc 'having n fine airing and, such ns It is, plenty of ammunition is being piled up for use in debate ou the Senate floor. But, the pro ana con lineup in tlie Senate is about the same, with a large reservoir of non-committal votes from which most neutral sleuths believe the administration will be able to pull enough to put the Roosevelt plan over by a small margin. There is no reason to believe the hearings have had any particular effect on public opinion. Hhe incoming mail stirred up by the Issue has fallen off. That still coming shows a more favorable tone than the first deluge, but this appears due to the concerted effort of organized labor groups. (One reflection of the labor effort is a sprinkling of demands that justices not be ]icr- inilted to receive $20,000 a year for the rest of their lives when they retire.) Seek Balm for Wounds Administration supporters arc giving serious thought to the problem of healing wounds after the battle is over. This is comparable to Roosevelt's pre-election desire for an "era of good feeling" after the victory he expected This "era," if it began, was punctured by the President's Supreme Court message to Congress. The fact that New Dealers are worrying about this phase may be taken as indicating that they expect a rather narrow squeeze when the Senate vote is taken. The opposition has been taking advantage of the hearings to st.nrt, in effect, the filibuster which is expected to begin formally when the issue,.reaches the Senate., No f.; i, Von'c seems' to' be quite sure whal '/good filibustering will do, but extra month of . delay in which outsiders instead of senators do the talking as as valuable to the filibuster cause, perhaps, as a month In which members' stretch their endurance powers in th( Senate.

Don 1 be surprised if you hear Shirle> Temple is testifying against plan. None Defend Court Perhaps the most surprising thing about hearings is the common failure of witnesses to come to defense of the Supreme Court and its decisions of the past three years. Almost without exception, all have" agreed tiiat something must be done to reform the court or the Constitution. Republican leaders, Liberty Leaguers and other regular defenders of the court's conservative majority have shunned the witness stand. For tactical reasons, based on memory of the election results, opposition senators have refrained from calling such outstanding conservatives as John w. Davis and Al Smith. Nothing has been more clearly proved than the fact that yoi either like the President's plan or you don't like it, and that yoii.'re cither afraid of it or you're not.
