Frankfurter did not issue an
opinion on the recent school

speculation, because of his phil-
osophical leadership of the
Court's conservative Wing, over
what he would have decided.

In retirement, Frankfurter

the great Federal Judge

The appointment of Goldberg
comes at a time when the Su-
preme Court has emerged as
the most dynamic force in our
national life. The Court has be-
come a catalytic factor for prog-
ress and change.
Goldberg's service as Secre-
tary of Labor drew national
recognition and praise. Nothing
pleases him more than a chance
to delve into unfamiliar ground.
When a strike threatened to
cancel the Metropolitan Opera
season, Goldberg arbitrated the
complexity of issues. He
emerged not only with a settle-
ment but with a plan for Fed-
eral encouragement of the arts.

Goldberg has a progressive
social outlook that rests on
his sympathy for the poor and
oppressed. The youngest of
eight children of immigrant
Russian Jews, he went to work
as a delivery boy at the age
of 12. He worked his way
through school with honors.

His political work on behalf
of Roosevelt in 1936 brought
him into contact with labor
leaders and he became a lawyer
for various unions. In World
War Two he worked in the Of-
fice of Strategic Services, or-
ganizing anti-Nazi European
transportation workers behind
enemy lines into a vast intel-
ligence network.
Later, as counsel for the CIO,
he devised an effective formula
to expel Communist-dominated
unions from the CIO. He also
played a leading role in the
merger of the CIO with the
In his term as Labor Secre-
tary, and previously, he actively
promoted broader economic op-
portunities for Negroes.
At the age of 54, Goldberg
had become the most effective
member of the Cabinet. There
was surprise after the Supreme
Court appointment was an-
nounced, however. This was not
because of any doubt of his
merit but that the President
was willing to sacrifice him
from his Cabinet post.

In any event, another bril-
liant attorney of Jewish faith,
the fourth in history, will serve
on the Supreme Court. The ap-

pointment was in the Roosevelt


The thorough study made by
the two authors delves into the
background of Federal interest
in education, probes "the pos-
ture of higher education" and
discusses issues relating to the
church-state c o n f l i c t s and
Recalling the recommenda-
tion made by Thomas Jefferson,
in 1806, that higher education
should be placed "among the
articles of public care," Ba-
bridge and Rosenzweig review
the developments that led to
current conditions of govern-
mental interest in education
and describe the changes in
Federal interest in the subject.

Their conclusions are that
previously narrowly conceived
programs will become more
general; that Federal pro-
grams will become more gen-
eral; that Federal programs
will continue to broaden in
their coverage of institutions
and that the focus of atten-
tion will be widened from
graduate schools to embrace
undergraduate education as
well; and that "we shall see
shortly a program of assist-
ance to colleges and univer-
sities in their capacity as insti-
tutions rather than as sur-
veyors of needed services."
