to them his speech delivered before Congress Fri-
day with reference to revamping the Supreme
Court of the United States.
Implications of the message point to a court
entirely, playing to the hand of the president and
his new deal policies.
His reference to the old men on the bench
made by the president in which he said they ‘‘liv-
ed in the past rather than the present,” and af-
ter paying them a dubious compliment as to age
and experience, said that "new blood” was need-
ed in the court and asked that the number ba
changed from nine to fifteen, came as the most
sensational piece of news seasoned newspaper men
Indeed the nation will be rubbing its eyes
for many days to come as all of us are wonder-
ing just what are to be the implications and ul-
of such fundamental changes.
“We are on our way” the president said some
months back, although he did not indicate just
what that meant if he himself knew. Now that
we are asked to make such alterations in the Su-
preme Court we wonder if being on our way
means that the constitution is to made to fit the
existing needs of the people within the frame-
work of its clear meaning, or is to shape the docu-
ment to meet the demands of a policy,, whether
it he a new deal one or a plain dictatorship.
If that is the purpose of bringing new blond
into the body, it will be bad blood and may in-
noculate the whole system of the people compris-
