If this is so, it will not be because the Court has done a lem- pevamental about-face, but because its members have carried their recent trend' of behavior to its ultimate conclusion. Throughout our history there have beer. •' relatively few periods when Americans had reason to think of the Supreme Court as being; made up men subject to human frailities and passion. Though the Court's personnel changed, the members assumed a certain similarity with their black robes of office. Year after year, the Court symbolized the emotionless, almost bloodless, legal smir.d. Occasionally its justice betrayed human compassion, but even this seemed to.spring from an almos't super-human wisdom. This conception or the Court inspired a public confidence akin to reverence. Even the so-calted "couvt- paeking" proposal of President Roosevelt 10 years ago failed to alter it. The battle raged between the White House and the Capitol and spread through the nation. But the composure of justices remained unruffled. The last few years, however, have brought reports', of very human differences among the brethcrn. Personal relationships as well as political philosophies have been involved. Things came to a head, of course, with the open quarrel between Justices Jackson and Black. Since then friction in the Kuprtme Court has been freely and frequently .publicized. There were dif- erences, too, in the decision on John L. Lewis and his union. But the majority obviously thought and acted on : a plane of common sense, rather than of rarefied legislation. The essence of the decision seams to be this: That if it comes down to a question of government by injunctions or government by John L. Lewis, the judicial officer of the United States should prevail. Further, that officer had the right to punish 51 r. Lewis and his union for contempt and disobedience. The Court majority seemed to remember the gravity of the crisis which Mr. Lewis created, and to approve the fact that it was settled. The minority, while granting that a grave crisis had existed, felt that Congress never intended that it should be settled as it was. How it should have been settled the minority didn't say. Justice Rutledge's minority view was that although the miners wore working for the government they weren't government employes. Apparently, the majority spent little time pursuing the complications of that line of thought. In short, the Supreme Court has put itself on record as opposing legislation which gives one man power to tyrannize and paralyze the country's' economic life. Maybe its decision was more realistic than legalistic, but we believe that it will find a large measure of approval. The majority's reasoning was of a sort that the ordinary citizen can understand. This isn't usual, but it isn't bad. The public may now look upon these nine -distinguished jurists as human beings rather than marble figures. And we don't believe the jurists will mind. •; Philatelic Financiers Stamp collecting is a senseless, meaningless pastime to everybody but stamp collectors. No matter how many kings and presidents indulged in it, to the uninitiated it is a heathen waste of time and money to buy, trade, and hoard postage stamps just for the sake of looking at them. But the critic may now hold his tongue and hand his head. For the stamp collector has become a potential force in international finance who perhaps may help bolster the totlcrinji fortunes of the British Kmpire. A Conservative member of Parliament has said that if Britain would only abandon the stodgy hab'it of out- ling her King's picture on all .stump.? and go in for some varied and picturesque designs, the British treasury would be enriched by millions. So, philathelists of the world, it's up to you. Stumps for Britain! Open your albums, shell out the cash, and save the Empire! And let's not have any heckling from the sidelines, either VIEWS OF OTHERS Black Market Democracy President Chiang now proposes to stave oil economic collapse In China by peddling f2UU,- 000,000 worth of UNRRA supplies on the "free" market (which anywhere lint China would be called less politely and more accurately the black market). And some Americans have greeted tho proposal with a cynical, "Why not? Everybody's doing It." Here Is why not. The Chinese Government has been promised a huge loan from the Imporl- Export Bank when it cleans house and gets rid of some of the Inefficiency, corruption, and un- pbpular one-party rule that (loom It to insecurity at present. The political and military bosses who have heretofore dominated It, hnvo counted on using the Chinese Communist threat to bludgeon America • Into granting the loan without insisting on the conditions. When General Marshall explicitly refused to be maneuvered Into underwriting reaction In China, he must have foreseen the present economic crisis. It was clear that, every sort, of appeal would be made to change American policy. We can see no reason for changing It now. President Chiang, In his recent announcement that private fortunes held abroad would be called home and industries mismanaged by bureaucracy would be titrhcd 'over to'-prfVi'tle!" ownership, gave lioi>cful evidence of a desire to get at some of the root causes of the present crisis. If he can persuade the Kuomlntang reactionaries to cnrry out these provisions, as well as Implement the political democracy of tho new Constitution, then American aid should flow freely to him. Biit nothing is to be gained by holding out false palliatives that can only postpone inevitable change. And certainly democracy Is not slid at Inflated prices on the black market. —CHRISTIAN SCIENCE MONITOR.
