Yesterday's Decisions \ The supreme court's decisions yesterday in which the Wagner Labor. Relations Act was ruled conslitiilioiinl 'and its application to iniuiufnetiirhig industry 'was upheld would seem to dispose of the chief issue involved in recent biff strikes in Michigan and elsewhere. The principal demand of the strikers has been for recognition of the right of collective bargaining. The Wagner act not only expressly affirms that right but makes it mandatory upon the employer to rccogni/c any organization embracing /& majority of his workers as the bargaining agency for all of them.- . In settlement, of recent strikes the General Motors and Chrysler companies -recognized the United Automobile '.Workers union as the bargaining agency for its members. As a result of the supreme court decision the companies must now recognize the union as the bargaining agency .for all of their workers—provided, of course, that the union can show that a majority of the workers Avartt it to represent them. • ' ' . lieiiry Ford, who' only, a few days ago said that he would bargain with liis workers individually but never through a union organization, iniist how either swallow his words or place himself in defiance of the law of the land —unless, that is, he can persuade*' a •majority, of his employes that it is not to their advantage' to.:,ii)sist upon . the collective bargMiniiig :: -"rig1its given . them by the Wagner net. ; So much for the immediate effect of yesterday's decision upon the labor situation. What about its bearing, if any, upon the controversy over'-President Roosevelt's judiciary reorganization program? -"Where, in all conscience," asks the St. Louis Post-Dispatch this morning, "does' £his leave Ws (Mr. Roosevelt's) court-packing plan?" Certainly,' following .the minimum wage law reversal of .two weeks ago, yesterday's decisions would seem to take much of the force out of the • argument that the supreme court as now constituted is too inflexibly h'xett ill its views to adapt its interpretations of the constitution to present day -necessities. Two weeks ago the court flatly reversed an earlier ruling and did it frankly on social rather than legalistic grounds. Some of yesterday's decisions also amounted to a reversal. Less than a year ago, iii knocking' out the original Guffey coal act, the court said that "the power expressly granted congress to regulate interstate corii- merce docs not include the power to control the conditions in \vhich coal is produced before it becomes an article of comjhcrcc." Yesterday the court held that the power over interstate commerce does include the power ^io control the conditions under which steel, clothing and other articles arc produced before they become articles of eom'mercc. x There is a difference, of course, in that steel and clothing arc 'manufactured frorii materials \vhich in many instances originate across state lines from the points of manufacture. But certainly, from the position taken yesterday by the court to one which would permit it to approve such measures as the old Guffey act and the AAA production control program would be an extremely small slop. The one question which yesterday's decisions most emphatically did not answer is that of how the executive or congress may know, in advance of supreme court determination, \vhat measures may reasonably be expected to he held constitutional and' what may not. Whatever else it may have done by its decisions yesterday the supreme court most decidedly has not impaired the justice of the charge that it lias made itself ,the supreme policy determining body of the country as well as-(he supreme judicial tl-ibunal. While ,tlie coi\rt remains constituted as it is there is vested in one'of its members, through his right to align himself with the foiir so-called liberals' or the four so-called conservatives, a power over the li(fairs of this country greater.:•even' than that held by the president.
