Right Justice I1Y KODNHV DUTCIIER WASHINGTON. — Present New Deal strategy Is to uiKlerinine thc prestige of the U. S. Supreme Court, to prepare the public mind for whatever Roosevelt decides to do about curbing the court—If and when he decides io do anything nt all. The court, not for the first time, has helped thc administration by a performance ut which its critics point a linger of scorn. Just, before the political conventions, when it appeared Unit. Republicans would make preservation of the court's ™>wcrs a campaign issue, the justices handed .down a 5 to 4 decision against the New York minimutn wage Jaw, a ruling so unpopular that the Republican candidate thereafter publicly suggested a possible constitutional amendment. Court nnd .Constitution faded away ns blgr political issues. ; Now tile court is on the pan again because • It split even, four Justices aeainst four, on the New York unemployment Insurance net, anm-oving as if by default a favorable decision of the lower court. If the lower court had held th3 act m' : ilid. Ibe .supreme court deadlock would have had the effect of denying states the right lo provide for unemployment' insurance, tearing away a New Deal - AiKl-*tlie fact that no opinion was written on cither side eavf Ihe critics additional opportunity for ridicule.
