Court Voids New York Minimum Wage Law In S to 4 Ruling MINIMUM WAGE LAW IS THROWN OUT BY JUSTICES WASHINGTON, June 1 (/P)—By lift to four, the Supreme Court declared uhoonstiutional a 1333 New York law establishing- minimum wages for women and children. The ground was given that the state law contravened the constitutional guarantee of liberty. It was held that "the right to make con- 1 tracts" must not be violated. Justice Butler spoke for the majority. Chief Justice Hughes and Justices Brandeis, Stone, and Cardozo dissented; Justices Roberts, Van Devanter, Sutherland and McRcynolds sided with Butler. The legislation had been challenged by Joseph Tipaldo, Brooklyn laundry manager, who was indicted for forgery in an alleged attempt to conceal violation of the law. He won his freedom on a writ of habeas corpus. The law fixed the minimum wage for women laundry workers at $12.40 a week. It was enacted and signed by Governor Herbert Lehman In 1933. A similar law for the District of Columbia was held.unconstitutional by the supreme Court 13 years ago. New York attorneys said, however, their statute took into account the value of services rendered while the district law dealt only with the cost of living in determining the minimum wage.

S. QUEEN MARY, ill Quarantine In New York Harbor, June 1 (/P)—The Queen Mary, Britain'^ greatest liner, completed her first voyage across the Atlantic today amidst the colorful scenes of an enthusiastic welcome, but she failed to take the blue-ribbon of speed away from the Normandie. The Queen Mary, the largest ship afloat on the basis of water-line length, dropped anchor at quarantine in lower New York bay at 9:10 a. m. (EST) after passing Ambrose Lightship at 8:03 (EST). Averaging 29.133 knots on the crossing, the total time of the Queen Mary from Cherbourg to Ambrose Lightship was 4 days, 12 hours, and 24 minutes. The average speed of the Normandie for its best run last year was 29.64 knots. The , Normandie's best run of 4 days, 3 hours, 13 minutes and 38 seconds was made over the measured course from Bishop's Rock Light, at at the entrance to the English channel, to Ambrose Lightship—193 nautical miles shorter than the Queen Mary's measured course. The welcoming for the new queen of the seas—which holds to the old British tradition of a vertical knifelike prow, instead of the fanciful curving and pointed prow adopted by the Normandie—opened long before the ship dropped Its anchors at quarantimj.,for the official reception. As thef"llnw-. f -passed, : <abeam, of Ambrose Lightship, before proceeding up the channel into New York harbor—many airplanes flew overhead and three 'army planes circled about in formation. All the way up the channel to quarantine, the welcoming diii wa,s continuous as the fleet of small craft increased. But the real roar of welcome was not due until the Queen proceeded from quarantine late today for her new pier in the Hudson rivver—built especially for her, next to the Normanaie's dock. NEW YORK.
