EIGHT MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE/FEBRUARY 11 H 1937 NATIONAL PROBLEMS DISCUSSED FOR WOMAN'S CLUB Department Meeting Is atY.W.C.A. ]Women Told to Write Their ".. Congressmen About Supreme Court. National problems including the struggle between labor and capital, the question of public or privately owned utilities, the supreme court and neutrality were discussed by Mrs. W. W. Remington in her talk Wednesday after- non at the meeting of the Woman's club current events department at the Y. W. C. A. "Before recorded history, there was a struggle between labor and capital," Mrs. Remington said. "In spite of our progress, we have succeeded little in-solving .the problem. Production is the source of all \yealth" which comes through the investment; of capital, labor and raw material an3 no one o£ the three is more important than the other. , How to Solve. "We will never solve the problem until the man at the head of the corporation who regulates the hours, condition and type of labor has gone down into the ranks uf labor and served so that he becomes a more understanding employer. And if labor could get the idea of what it means to have the responsibility of a large investment, the problem would be more easily \solved. \ "We will solve the problem when capital and labor both realize that their problems are the same and that they are workinp lor the ultimate satisfaction and happiness of mankind. The sit- down strikers have no more right to occupy .the property of theii employer than the employer has to ··take money out of their pay envelopes. In the automobile .industry strike, I believe rare restraint has been exercised by the authorities to avoid rioting and bloodshed. Too Much Feudalism. "There has been too much feudalism in industry--too much letting things go until they can be borne no longer by the workers. I believe any worker has the right to join a union, but that no union has the right to insist on being the sole bargaining agent for many who do not belong to it. All are struggling for power. There must be a recession from the original . demands for power on both sides with thought given to the welfare of the nation, the investors and the thousands dependent upon_the industry. u -i_ "The American trend has been to build up great wealth in services that belong to the people. There are those who. would lead the government to provide those services which the people cannot afford to pay for. The TVA, financed with tiie taxpayers' money, doesn't have to have a budget. It pays no taxes or. dividends and buys no franchise. With the private utility, franchises must be purchased, taxes paid, property kept up and dividends be paid. It is impossible for one to sell as cheaply as the other. In countries as vast as ours; conditions are different and it makes it hard for a central power to be'effective. The founding fathers were wise to stress states rights." Nothing So Vital. Speaking of President Roosevelt's proposed reform of the judiciary, Mrs. Remington said, "In a consideration of a case so vital that there has been nothing cf more importance since the emancipation proclamation, it is strange that it was not discussed as a campaign' issue. "The change would give too - much judiciary control to one person. I am, struck anew at the wisdom and perspicacity of writers of the constitution who drew best Colds .....

The complete separation of the legislative and judiciary is ideal in government. We must have some authority as the bulwark o/ our liberties and that is the supreme court. There are only trained minds in the judiciary where any conflict in the interpretation of law could be decided. 70 Years Younfr. . "There have been six, then seven and now nine members of the · supreme court arid their judgeships are superior to any other .'office in the U. S. The variety of their decisions shows the sincerity of honest minds. Age lias nothing to do with their ability. I. know many people who are 70 years young. It stirs me deeply to :hink that men like Brandeis and Hughes are to be set aside because they are -past 70. It takes years of experience and suffering to come to wisdom. "There was 'never a more bitter humiliation, nor one more unjustly placed than this. Senator Walsh of Montana was 74 when he was appointed to office in the cabinet o£ President Roosevelt, and his age did not militate a g a i n s t his usefulness. Age has its rightful place in the supreme court. I am regretful of the whole thing because I was willing to believe that times were changing and that in President Roosevelt we might find something to lead us forward. "He has referred to the supreme court lightly. He would put six judges over the six who refused to resign. We all know that small bodies expedite matters better than large. If the court were increased the decisions would be delayed and retarded. ^For All Time. "Do you suppose that anyone would be appointed who was not very liberal and who would not vote in the interests of the president. This machinery is not being set up just for today but for years. It transcends all partisanship. Fascist and nazi newspapers approve it. The danger is in the future. We have had very poor presi- dents. We often elect poor legislators." Mrs. Remington devoted a short time to the discussion of the liquor problem, pointing out that the liquor dispensary control system was the best, as she had seen it worked out in foreign countries. "I refuse to acknowledge that there is a single problem we cannot solve except by the way of democracy. A National Policy. "Many people believe that there never was a war that was really necessary and that if we had mandatory neutrality, it would keep any president from getting us into war," she said, pointing out that mandatory neutrality would not be enforced because if we sell to foreign countries we become entangled with them: "I wish we would not declare for neutrality, but develop a national policy in time of war." In concluding Mrs. Remington urged the listeners to let their ·congressmen know what they think about the supreme court and about neutrality. She also spoke of the league of nations and the world court, pointing out that probably it is better to have the U. S. out of the league, making it a federation of European states. Mrs. Remington also spoke of the value of the world court as a court of international relations. A short period for questions followed.
