ffffi fAMPA DAILY ***** ITORIAL MENACE L 6F WORKING WIVES One of the surest ways to start a warm argument is to; luring up the subject of working wives, then make a flcigmatic statement about it. A life insurance company, whose business it is to know social trends and the effects of habits of living, haa printed findings which convince the investigators that working wives are a menace to society but that postponed marriages are more detrimental. Of course, the subject is not one that can be put on a yes-and-no basis. The two findings are so closely related as to seem contradictory. Pastors of 166 churches In 160 American cities advised against lengthy engagements even though the bride must work for a time to help start the home. Two of each three pastors consulted had observed that marital happiness is doubtful when the wife works. Increasingly, moreover, economic strains are producing mating without marriage. The result is not only a breakdown of conventional morality but a cynical attitude on the part of young folks toward marriege and morals. Many pastors have come to the conclusion that newlyweds should have a dowry, either from the parents or from the State. But it was noted that young cou'ples are more willing now to marry in virtual poverty and work hard to establish themselves. The depression has done this, but it also has done much harm in making iit impossible for hundreds of thousands of couples to marry. It is readily deducted from the survey that the conditions complained of are often not the choice of those involved; they are forced by economic necessity more than through choice. This necessity is not always apparent, hence many working wives are condemned when they should be commended for supporting relatives. BEHIND THE SCENES IN WASHINGTON • BY RODNEY DUTCHER- WASHINGTON—If anyone were to imagine such ah undignified spectacle as the U. S. Supreme Court "sticking its neck out," it would have to be admitted that something like a' yard and a half of that section of the court's anatomy is now exposed. The 5 to 4 decision against New York's minimum wage law for women and children has piled up ammunition for those who propose to change a system in which the word of one man can determine the nation's economic future. By ruling that neither the federal government nor the separate states can act against such evils as the sweatshop and the right of industrial exploition, the Roberts- Sutherland-McReynolds-Butler-VanDevanter majority has flabbergasted even some of the most vigorous supporters of the theory that this majority is a precious'bulwark against social, labor, and other reform legislation passed by Congress. Without offering much but cause for worry to the conservatives, the opinion aids the New Dealers in several ways. For instance, this wasn't in any sense a New Deal case. So-called New Deal legislation had been knocked down by the majority, usually in alleged defense of the exclusive right of states to legislate in such fields. New York and 16 other states had passed what they considered essential minimum wage laws. The court majority, in killing them, has added plausibility to the New Dealers' contention that it isn't so much concerned with interpreting the Constitution as with preserving a reactionary front on all occasions when "human rights" clash with "rights of property." Pressure on Roosevelt from his advisers to ask Congress for authority to appoint additional jutices or to start the war for a constitutional amendment has increased enormously. The president is being told that the five-man majority has given him a marvelous opportunity by its creation of an obvious no man's land for social-economic legislation. If weight of advice is the determining factor, Roose- vejt will try to increase the size of the court next winter, barring deaths or retirements. He might wait until the court killed the Wagner Labor and Social Security acts, now considered doomed. A couple of years ago, talk of "packing the court" was somewhat dampened by reports that the liberal justices might resign if the idea were carried out. But now those justices are declaring publicly in effect that the majority justices are guided by "personal economic predilections." Roberts bears the brunt of much of the criticism, since he held in the Nebbia decision that New York could regulate milk prices, but now says the liberty of women and children to work for starvation wages can't be denied. The unsavory nature of the case before the court probably will also be cited in future attacks. It began as the appeal of a Brooklyn laundry owner who had been indicted for forgery on charges that he falsified the records as to wages paid. The action of five $20,000-a-year judges holding that laundresses mustn't be paid a $12.40 weekly minimum is also oratorical meat for demagogs. BARBS Don't complain about your doctor bill. Suppose you w«re a patient of Dr. Townsend, who. is accustomed to dealing in boxcar figures. Zioncheck is beginning to pall on the nation. A farmer perked up recently at mention of the name, but it turns put he thought it was "signed check." Just before the guillotine dropped, a French criminal was presented with his tax bill; He greeted it with a de- aneer. A Yale professor says winking enables you to see things more distinctly — your mistake, for instance, if the pretty girl swings on you. Tamer Clyde Beatty was arrested in Pittsburgh for cryejty to lions, Undoubtedly he nearly choked a lion wjtb his head, "Holland has a tax on Christian names." And we have name for taxes. PUZZLED?
