Fundamental Law
Opponents of tht New Deal
seized on Constitution Day, Mon
day, for a concerted attack on
manv of the fundamental policies
of the Roosevelt administration.
In speeches throughout the
United States "constitutionalists"
denounced "brain trust" measures
Leading the American people
toward a dictatorship;
Threatening- freedom of speech
and freedom of the press;
Confiscating property of the

Designed to create a gigantic
I bureaucracy which can be turned
into a self-perpetuating political
Tending towards a complete
abdication of the powers of con
gress "which would give the bu
reaucrats the power to make laws
as well as to execute them."
Speakers included Ogden Mills,
mentioned as a possible Republi
can candidate for president; Oo!.
Theodore Roosevelt, Jr.; former
Secretary of State Bainbridge
Colby, and others.
Most of the addresses dwelt at
length on the central theme in
former President Herbert Hoov
er's new book—the alleged dan
gers to personal liberty involved
in "regimentation" features of
"new deal" policies.
delphia, Sept. 18.— (UP).—"In
this hall the Constitution of the
United States, the sacred charter
of our rights, was agreed to and
adopted,'' declared Bainbridge
Colby, in an address here last
night in defense of the Constitu
tion. He continued:
"Demagogic voices are heard
today endeavoring to make a
cheap play upon words on the
Constitutional guarantee of per
sonal liberty. Men high in th>»
government speak of it as only a
liberty to oppress and exploit,
and ask if there is not an over
looked liberty—the liberty to live
and to work and to eat.
"This is rather a low type of
political charlatanism.
"The Constitution is expressly
dedicated to the promotion of th»
general welfare, and to securing
the blessings of liberty. To that
end it has ordained a system of"
legal protection for the rights of
every individual, and had provid

By this simple, straightforward declaration, the makers of the
Constitution of the United States gave out the basic law of the
land. It is the Preamble to the Constitution.
The 11 aricles that follow detail section by section the purpoges
set forth in the Preamble.
the first Article is most important. In 10 sections, it gives the
composition, powers and limitations of both Houses of Coagre9B.
In four ways the new Congress became much more important dnd
powerful than the Congress under the Articles of Confederation.
First, Congress could devise and collect taxes, without asking
the help of the states.
Second, it could raise and support armies and naval forjces with
out state permission. i
Third, it could regulate commerce among the states and with
foreign countries. /
Fourth, it could do all things necessary and proper to «;arry into
effect the powers given it by the Constitution.
The Constitution further provided that revenue-raising meas
ures originate only in the lower House, and Congress had sole
power to mint coins, declare war, establish post offices, and exer
cise authority over what later became the District of Columbia.
Finally, the states were prohibited from coining money and en
tering into any treaty with foreign countries. Further, without
consent of Congress, no state was permitted to keep troops or
engage in war unless actually invaded, or lay and duties on im
ports or exports.

Action Depends on Report
To Be Made by Special
Mediation Board
—Tightening: of the textile strike
HneR today indicated that Presi
dent Roosevelt's personal inter
vention ultimately may be re
quired to settle the deadlock.
Whether the President takes a
hand was expected to be deter
mined by th& special mediation
board's report, requested before
October 1, but possibly available
—John W. Young, president of
Federal Laboratories, Inc., Pitts
burgh, today told the Senate com
mittee investigating the munitions
business that the textile strike
had increased the firm's tear gas
business from five to ten per cent.
Francis J. Gorman, national
strike chief, recently protested to
President Roosevelt against the
use by national guardsmen on
strike duty of guns, ammunition
and other war material owned by
the federal government.
Meantime, developments in the
capital yesterday threatened the
jobs of an additional 275,000 tex
tile and garment workers.
The executive council of the
United Textile Workers was to
meet today to decide on whether
100,000 carpet and synthetic ray
on employes shall be called out to
swell the strikers' ranks.
The NRA advisory council re
jected the cotton garments code
authority proposal for revision of
an order by President Roosevelt
which reduced working hours
from 40 to 36 a week, maintains
present hourly rates and increases
piece rates 10 per cent.
At a rtieeting in New York
members -of the industry issued
reports they would not obey the
order. Union leaders have made
all preparations to call out 176,
000 garment makers on October
1 when the order becomes effec
tive unless industry accepts it.
