premu court continued todav licarinc
th?! tost case brought to decide the
constitutionality of the Adamson act
with t ho railroads presenting their side
of tho controversy.
The roads' counsel wore expected
to occupy tha entlro day with their
arguments leaving Frank Hagerman,
special assistant to the^ttomey gen'
oral to conclude for tho government
tomorrow
In outlining tho railroad's attack
tpon the law. Walker D. Ulcus, chairnan
of the railroad general committee
if attorneys, who opened today's hearing.
laid stross upon tho carriers'
contention that the law is not a 11m!
tatlon of hours of 'employment, but
merely a wage fixing statute. He denied
that Congress 1b given power lu

also Included assertions that it le
workable and capable of enforcement

^bat the law operates to Increase
tbo wages of the best paid railroad
men and therefore discriminates
ngainst those receiving less pay was
another line of attack taken by the
.Carriers.
Its operation it was insisted would
add million of dollars to the railroads'
rxpenses, with probable consequent Increase
of rates. The railroad employees,
the carriers also contended, arc
not bound by the law to remain In service
and not strike although the law

The roads' counsel insisted that the
law cannot be upheld upon any theory
and asked that circuit Judge Hook's
