Walsh The Supreme Court will begin hearings tomorrow on the first batch of cases for the new term. The most important issues are constitutionality of the non-Com munist affidavit provision of the Taft-Hartley Act and jurisdiction of the District Court here to act on a complaint of racial discrimi nation by a labor union. The tribunal also is expected to announce its first orders, grant ing or denying many of the more than 400 review requests already filed. Among those are petitions of former Representative Andrew J. May, Democrat, of Kentucky and Henry and Murray Garsson, war time munitions makers, for re view of their District Court con viction in July, 1947, on charges of conspiracy to defraud the Gov ernment. Seven Justices on Bench. As at the opening of the term last Monday, only seven justices will be on the bench. Justice Douglas is recovering from in juries suffered last Sunday when thrown from a horse. Justice Minton, confirmed last week by the Senate, is to be sworn in Wednesday. The first case on the oral argu ment docket for the two weeks beginning tomorrow has been pending in the Supreme Court since early this year. A group of Negro firemen asked District Court here to enjoin the Brother hood of Locomotive Firemen and Enginemen from discriminating against them because of race. The union, which has offices here and headquarters in Cleve land. contended that the suit be dismissed for lack of venue. The District Court upheld the firemen but the United States Circuit Court of Appeals ruled that the matter should be transferred to the Federal Court in Ohio. The Negro firemen appealed to the Supreme Court. Revolves on Definition. The dispute turns largely on the different wording of the Federal; and the District statutory defini tions of venue. The District law on Federal Court venue authorizes action against a defendant “found” in the District of Colum bia. The Federal statue requires that a defendant must be an “in habitant” of the district in which he is sued. The non-Communist affidavit controversy was taken to the Supreme Court a year ago but hearing was put off until this term. The Taft-Hartley Act pro vides that labor unions cannot avail themselves of NLRB privi leges unless union officials sign affidavits that they are not Com munists. Most union officials have done so, but usually under protest and pending final determination of the constitutionality of the re quirement. Petitioners in the two cases up for hearing this week are the American Communications Asso ciation and the United Steel Workers. They ask the Supreme Court to reverse lower court de cisions upholding the affidavit provision. Another labor question, which also might apply in other fields, is at the root of a case to be heard this week. The question is whether an injury damage suit by an em ploye must be filed only in the district where the employe lived at the time of the injury. Segregation Case Scheduled. Among 17 cases scheduled for hearing during the week of Octo ber 17 is a test of the practice of "separate but equal” facilities for Negroes and whites. The appeal brought by Elmer W. Henderson of Washington, prominent in va rious organizations of colored people, is directed against racial segregation in railroad dining cars. The Justice Department last week submitted a friend-of-the court brief urging the Supreme Court to rule in favor of Mr. Henderson against a long-standing Interstate Commerce Commission authorization for railroads to segregate whites and Negroes in dining cars. Another dispute to be argued late that week is whether the Dis trict Public Utilities Commission or the Interstate Commerce Com mission has jurisdiction in setting fares for transportation of bus passengers between downtown Washington and nearby Arlington County points. The Capital Tran sit Co. and the Washington, Mary land «& Virginia Coach Co. are parties to cases that will be heard together. Writers Club to Meet George Howe, author of “Call It Treason” which won the Christo phers award, will address the Pro fessional Writers Club at a meet ing at 7 p.m. tomorrow at the Young Women's Christian Asso ciation. His subject will be "Build ing a Book.” Lilies of the valley are some times called “fairy ladders.” DIAMOND BARGAINS $ FOR INVESTMENTS 5 5 THAT ARE DIFFICULT TO $ DUPLICATE $ $ PRICE 5 5 WAS MOW $ $ $300 lady'a sol.
