Supreme Court Bill Termed ‘Remedy’ Jackson Urges Congress To Back Roosevelt s Judiciary Plan WASHINGTON, March 11—(U.P)— Arguing that the supreme court is "impaired in its functioning and prestige” by serious divison, Assistant Attorney Oeneral Robert H. Jackson today urged senate judiciary committee to approve President Roosevelt’s court reorganization bill I as the “only remedy.” | Meanwhile Roosevelt, who per-j sonally launched the drive for congressional enactment with two 1 radio speeches before the formal hearings began, left for Warm Springs. Ga.. for two weeks’ vaca-| tlon. William C. Bullitt, ambassador to France, accompanied him. j Jackson's “brief” for passage of Mr. Roosevelt's request was based j on this logic: 1. The constitution places in congress the responsibility for the pro-j per functioning of the supreme court. Congress helps select the justices; they must answer to congress for their behavior; the court's ! jurisdiction, except ln certain cases, I is outlined by congress; and con-I &ress has the "generally overlooked” j power to check the “over-reaching” j of the court. j 2. Legislation affecting the size ' of the supreme court “is authorized I by the constitution and validated ! by historical practice as a method of bringing the elective and non-i elective branches of the govern-I ment back into proper eoordlna-j tion.” i 3. The history of attempts to | correct the court by constitutional ; amendment shows the impossibility of predicting the interpretation of ihe amendment.

Group SANTA MONICA, March 11. — (UP)—An 18-day strike at the Douglas aircraft plant was ended tonight by an agreement under which President Donald Douglas recognized the CIO’s aircraft division of the United Automobile Workers union and reinstated all but 38 of the strikers. Under the agreement, 2500 strikers will return to work, probably Monday, rejoining 3,000 other employees who had refused to strike with them. Strikers Get Raise » The strikers will receive the same 5-cent an hour wage increase Douglas granted other workers 10 days ago. The peace negotiations were completed when Douglas abruptly agreed to reinstate most of the 350 strikers who were indicted on trespass charges after they had engaged in a sit-down strike at the plant. As recently as this noon, when he addressed a mass meeting of his workers, Douglas announced he was; willing to recognize the union and arbitrate other disputed points, but he emphasized he would not reinstate the Indicted men until they had been cleared. He said he feared any such concession "might influence the courts.” Agrees To Return Several hours later, after another conference with the strike committee, he relented and agreed to return to their jobs all the defendants except 38 who. he charged, engaged in violence and sabotage during the sit-down. With tlie exception of recognition, all demands of the CIO union, including a 15-cent-an-huur wage increase, will be arbitrated, Douglas said. He accompanied this statement with assurance that none of the strikers would be discriminated against because of their union activities. ...... initely close the consideration of . , . . t u I anyone to run for any office in the Advertising Class I O Hear all-university election, regardless of !

The texts were so obscene the state department refused to make them public.

His remarks drew a sharp protest from the Hitler government and the state department apologized. Mrs. Wise's communication to Hull said the Nazi press "published a statement to the effect that 1200 women attending a luncheon of thc women's division (of the congress) were 'women of the streets,’ ” Dickstein Accuses Dickstein specifically accused Fritz Kuhn, who he described as being a chemist on leave of absence from the Ford Motor company, of leading a Nazi movement ln this country.
