Navy series umtToij Dewey, gray HV UODNKY DllTOHEU ' The Courier News Washington Correspondent WASHINGTON, Apr. 17 — The Supreme Court's about" face In Ihe Wagner act decisions hns given both sides new arguments in the historic battle over the Roosevelt judiciary scheme, without np- ircclnbly affecting the outlook as 'o the plan's fate. The ilrst ; cry of the opposition ;hnt Iho lust excuse for the plan was Eonc'. echoed by a few senators who looked hopefully toward avoiding Ihe issue, has been counterbalanced by a prompt White House eifort (o lurn on ,hc heat, Tlie administration urges low that Ihe court has weakened the position of its supporters by providing its willingness to play politics. Certain Democratic fence-sitters In the Senate arc seeking to jump off In any direction, jusl'so it will enable Ihcm to escape voting on the President's proposal. The Administration forces say privately they won't let the fcncc- sitlers jump. At Ihe same time, allempls'are being made to find a method which would mnke the medicine for this group easier to take. ' Belief that Ihe President's hand has been strengthened by the Wagner decisions Is shared by some, -although by no means all of the opposition strategists. They fear It is widely fell lhat the swing of n court majority to more liberal opinions is n personal victory for Roosevel^, achieved b> Ihe President's war on the court. Simclity Theory Abandoned The two fundamental factors, ii with no mind. The opposition a sacred formula, other consideration In tactlly nbiuulons Ihc latter theory In order lo assert Hint Ihe court is responsive lo public opinion and hence needs no reorganization.'. Tp which New Dealers, emphasizing .he 5 to -I di'clsion and the reversal of Justice Robert's position on ihe Interstice commerce clause, :ort In of Chief-Justice Hughes: "We are under a Constitution, ml Ihc- Constitution Is what Justice Roberts -says it Is—until the next lime he changes his mind." If. Ihe decisions had been unanimous Inslend of dcmonstrallni; lhat four Justices over 10 slill stood grimly against liberal con- slltnlloiml Interpretation, the administration would .have no excuse for arsuing that the "future welfare of 130,000,000 persons mnsln'L he left in Ihe hands'of one vacillating mnn." The aclual extent to which the court may have rubbed off some of Its own sancllly or diminished its prestige by Roberts' bow to outside agitation Is blurred bj partisan debate. It is demonstmt- ble, however, lhat the court hasn't made and new friends by the Wagner act decision, cxccp among Democratic senators reluctant lo lake a sland on the reorganization proposal.
