Preservation of Rights of Individual
Without Impairing Government
Power Is Major Task
of Statesmanship
Grand Rapids, Mich., Aug. 30 (AP)
—Preservation of tihjeu fundamental
rights of the individual without im
pairing- the government power to un
dertake measures for the general
welfare was described as the great
est problem of statesmanship at the
present time by Judge John J. Par
ker of Charlotte, N. C., in an address
today to the American Bar Associa
tion.
Judge Parker, senior jurist of the
fourth Federal Circuit Court of Ap
peals, and with a wide reputation as
a constitutional authority, assured
that the increased activities of the
Federal government was not a sign of
abandonment of the nation’s consti
tutional theory. I
“CeCrtaimly if Congress may lega
;• slate for the purpose of preserving
free competition, it may, wwhen this
free competition is o. n the verge of
destroying industry itself, legislate to
eliminate its destructive features in
the interest of controlled cooperation,
he saWrT
“I have no reference of course, to
any .particular statutes or lo com
mercial codes adopted under ta.-m.
but am merely pointing out rant acts
regulating interstate ommerce are in
no sense a departure of;,our consti
tutional theory,” he said.

satisfied questioners that this was a
mistake. f
'Chief Webber was said to have
shown little surprise when he was
