**MARCH @F TIME *».•.•.*«.«». •t t M Of ItMB SECURITY SECURE- WASHINGTON—Government at torneys. Social Security Board members and senators (amoni them Court Candidate Joseph T Robinson) last week flocked to hear the U, S. Supreme Court pronounc the fate of a major New Deal law for the last time this session—th Social Security Act. The court's first decision was on ' an appeal by the Charles C. Stew ard Machine Co., which sued for a $46.16 refund of unemploymen taxes, maintained that the Federa unemployment payroll tax (of which tip to 90% is credited to the payer for contributions made to unem ployment insurance funds set up by the states) was an unconstitiitiona" means of coercing states into set ting up unemployment insurance since otherwise all tax money is lost by the state to the Federa government, New Dealers who might find in nn adverse decision on the Soda Security Act fresh proof that more justices were needed to liberalize the court faced disappointment •when liberal Justice Benjamin N Cardozo uprose to read a libera majority opinion: "During the years 1929 to 1936, when the country was passing through a cyclical depression, the number of the unemployed ' mounted (to unprecfedehted heights . . . The roll of the unemployed . . . was only apartlal roll o; the destitute or needy. The fact developed quickly that the states were unable to give the requisite relief. The problem had become national in area and dimensions It Is too late today for the argument to be heard with tolerance that when a crisis is extreme use of the moneys of the nation to relieve the unemployed and their dependents Is a use for anv purpose narower than (he promotion of the general welfare The statute does not call for a surrender by the states of powers essential to their quasi-sovereign existence . . . The Social Security Act is an attemnt to find a method by which all these (Federal or State) public agencies may work together to a common end." No 5-4, but a 5-2-1-1 decision was this, with Justices Van Devanter and Sutherland expressing a minority opinion in general agreement with Justice Cardozo but holding that the law, in requiring the states to deposit their unemployment tax collections in the U. S. Treasury, went too far, invaded states' rights by placing states' money under the Federal thumb. In his own dissenting opinion, Justice McRey- nolda held that the law's tax feature virtually coerced the states Into pawing flnem#tapft«it Insurance laws, and dissenting Justice Butter dflctartdJ'TJw temw of the «mt«» the exertion of power* of the states In a field in which they alone have jurisdiction and from which the United States is by the Constitution excluded." With the unemployment insurance law thus disposed of, Justice Cardozo went on to the old-age annuity section—a government appeal from a lower court decision favor- Ing Stockholder George P. Davis who sued Edison Electric Illuminating Co. of Boston to restrain It from paying old age pension taxes on its payrolls. In approving the law, Jdstice Cardozo was this time joined by secen court members, Justices Butler and McReynolds again dissenting. Finally Justice Stone read a 5 to 4 decision upholding Alabama's unemployment insurance law passed to conform to tha federal law, thus making a clean sweep of legal attacks on Social Security, and Justice Cardozo went home to celebrate the day— his 67th birthday. THIRD TERM?— NEW YORK: Good news to President Roosevelt have been the results of the political suveys of Fortune magazine, whose poll last autumn indicated his re-election with an error of only about 1.2% in the popular vote, whose poll in April Indicated that 52.6% of the people favored a third term for him. But the results of another poll on the president's popularity as affected by the Supreme Court issue, published by this same magazine last week, showed a bigger change in his popularity than took place at any time during the presidential campaign:—Whereas 14 months ago 84.8% of those who were critical of the court favored him, only 66.4% do so today, and among those who support the court-as-is, his popularity has fallen from 35.9% to 23.6 %. More to the noint:—Although S months ago 52.6% of those polled jfavored giving him a third term, today only 45% do so and 65% oppose It-r-the most serious drop yet recorded in Franklin D. Roosevelt's popularity.

WINKEL SAYS KOSSUTH MAY SUE Kossuth county may have to sue Humboldt county, unless supervisors can iron out difficulties at a meeting scheduled for this afternoon (Thursday) at which supervisors from both counties will be present. The case centers about the cost of caring for Otto Bunkofske, whom Kossuth officials say is a resident of Humboldt county. Bunkofske has lived for many years in Humboldt county, has paid taxes there, and is now receiving an old age pension tax through the Humboldt county office. Needed Hospital Care Several years ago, in 1931, Mrs. Elsie Steussy of Sherman township, aided Bunkofske by giving him a home and occasional chores around her place. However, she took him back to Humboldt county for part of each year, for the express purpose of having him keep his residence in that county. In 1934, when she took him back to the county home, they told her the place was full. Mrs. Steussy' says that several days later, the matron of the county home called her up, and said it would not be necessary to return Bunkofske, but that the latter would still retain Humboldt county residence. The matron now denies making such a call. Hip Badly Injured This spring, Bunkofske badly Injured his hip. Dr. Corbin of Lu- Perne told the supervisors of Humboldt county; they refused to do anything about it. Dr. Corbin then :old the Kossuth supervisors that :he man was in danger of being in- ^scted with gangrene unless he re- E. 0. Manns, Burt, Wed 50 Years on Saturday county supervisors, decided to send Bunkofske to Fort Dodge to a hos- iltal, on Dr. Corbin's recommendation. Now the question Is—who is gong to pay the bill. County Attorney Winkel says it amounts to 1214.70 for hospital fees, and another $150 for medical fees. In view of the circumstances, Winkel stated that Kossuth would probab- y stand good for the bills, but that f necessary suit would be brought against Humboldt county to get re- mbursement. sons respectively of Union besieger and Vicksburg's Confederate defender. Said Grandson Grant, shaking bands: "Two good generals and a great fight." Said Grandson Pemberton: "Yes, but they paid off on your grand-daddy."
