THE SUPREME COURT TAKES
For a moment it looked a* if the Supreme Court's
decision to give a little study to intercollegiate football
would have the effect, once an opinion had been deliver-
ed. of crossing the subject off the list of handy issues for
Most people have already made up their minds, of
course, on whether college football i commercial activ-
ity, but a number still can be found on what might, be
called the other side, and it looked at first glance as if
a court decision might bury the subject for good.
A second look, though, changed the picture com-
pletely. The issue is not whether intercollegiate football
is a "gigantic commercial activity" or a necessity of
higher education, but whether it is the former or "an es-
sential governmental function."
This just presents everybody with an entirely new-
subject to fight about between now and the court's ar-
rival at a decision, and leaves the old issue to go right
on being cause for hair-pulling.
The new issue should provide much better conversa-
tional fare than the old. The government is appealing a
circuit court's decision favoring the "essential govern-
mental" theory because that decision took away the fed-
eral right to impose a tax on the football gate receipts.
The circuit court felt the tax was an unconstitutional
burden on the state government, because, in short, state
universities also play football.
(State universities play football with other state's
universities. If football is an essential governmental fun-
ction, Why couldn't inter-state football be regarded as a
fUAfitífij) of the federal government?
nwmwrTffííRioB, and ttté "government is still contending
If the Supreme Court decides the game is a govern-
ing a "gigantic commercial activity," keep your ears open
for the old indignant yell: "Take the government out of
business! Rah! Rah! Rah!"
Of course, the big danger is that the whole thing
will become just another political football.

Well, times certainly change.
A man in Florida convicted of burglarizing a store
won a new trial on the ground that hi« abearance in
court in a convict auit might haive prejudiced the jurors.
It. makes the mind go back a couple of years. The
memory considers the epidemic of trials on such charges
as embezzlement, falsification of records, misapplication
of bank funds. The fashion among defendants then was
to dress up for court appearances in raiment looking as
much like hand-me-downs or sack cloth and ashes as pos-
sible. There was nothing like a tailor-made suit with a
gold watch chain hanging across the vest to guarantee
a man a good, long term in the penitentiary.
If the news about the Florida man has filtered into
the "corrective institutions" yet, there are probably a
lot of men who were refused new trials now kicking them-
selves around for not having appeared in court looking
like an old-fashioned cartoon of "The Trusts."
