SATURDAY, JANUARY 21, 193'J. THE DAILY U O U K I E K . 'C PA. Administration To Defend Earle's Laws in Courts HARRISBURG, Jan. 21.--Governor Arthur K. James' Republican Administration will defend all laws enacted during the Earlc Democratic regime now In litigation on constitutional grounds, in Pennsylvania's courts, Attorney General Claude T. Reno said Friday. In his first expression of Administration policy relative to the mass of contested legislation passed by the formerly Democratic-controlled House and Senate, the new Attorney General said "all Stale cases now pending in the courts will be carried to completion." "No matter in which court they are pending," Reno added emphatically, "nme of them will be dropped. There will be no order for a wholesale stoppage of Utlg-tcd acts." Reno, who expressed the James' Administration's stand on the Democratic Legislature's contested laws shortly after he took over the office occcupicd by former Attorney General Guy K. Bard, pointed out that after disposition of cases in lower courts, appeals probably will not be taken toihighcr courts by his department. It was the practice of the Justice Department under former Governor George H. Earlc to carry appeals to t' u State Supreme Court from many law-Invalid.-ting decisions, particularly from the Dauphin eounty court While Reno said there was slim chance of appealing cases not decided in tho Commonwealth's favor, he inferred that some might be further supported, depending "on our own conclusions after study of a disposed case." Pointing to the department's interest in the full crew law case In Dauphin county court, Reno said that "is one indication ot the depart- menu's attitude to carry on." Argument on constitutionality of the ful crew act ended yesterday. Thousands of pages of testimony were taken during 17 weeks of hearings. Of particular Interest to Reno wil be decisions on the chain store tax and workmen's compensation cases as well as outcome of the lull creu validity question. The workmen's' compensation law has been argued before the Suprcm Court and President Judge William M. Hargcst ot the Dauphin Bounty cout Is preparing an opinion on con stitutlonaUty of the chain store tax. Reno's · attitude on appeals from unfavorable decisions made It appca that the Justice Department will droi the State's efforts in behalf of majo legislation Inspired "during the Ear] regime if ruled unconstitutional b the lowor court. The State has pending more thai 500 tax suits -which, If lost, voul deprive (he Comonwcalth of from $30,000,000 to $35,000,000 In taxes most of which already has been col lected, according to Revenue Depart mcnt officials. Should the Commonwealth lose ou on three major suits, along whic lines hundreds of similar cases ar patterned, the State will be forced t make'heavy refunds of money col lectcd.

Oklahoma Attacks Flood Control Law By DEBS MYERS United Press Staff Correspondent. OKLAHOMA CITY, Jan. 21.-Oklahoma Joined Vermont In challenging the constitutionality of the 1037 flood control act, alleging that it violates the principle of state's rights. The Legislature approved a resolution sponsored by Governor Leon Phillips, demanding that Congress suspend a $54,000,000 flood control project on tlic Red River until the state could investigate its dcslrabllli- ty. The project calls for a Hood control nnd electric generating dam which would cost tho state nothing but which %vould be erected without the state's formal consent. The project was similar to the flood control dam in Vermont challenged in the same way--by legislative action--by Governor George D. Aiken of that state. Tho Vermont Legislature appropriated funds to present the Federal Government from going ahead by seeking injunctions and taking other court action. The Oklahoma Legislature appropriated no money.
