Court Proposal
Called Perilous
By Prof. Ailer
Supreme Court 'Packing'
Discussed At Graduate
Luncheon Yesterday
The question of whether or not the
American people are willing to pay,
in the long run, the price of altering
the size and personnel of the Supreme
Court according to the will of the
President, is the important issue in
the present court controversy, Prof.
Ralph W. Aigler of the Law School,
said yesterday in an informal talk
given at the weekly graduate lunch-
eon at the League.
"Packing" Discussed
Democratic government, Professor
Aigler said, was the device by which
individual liberty was attained and
by which it will be maintained. It
is not a perfect form of government,
and Prof. Aigler agrees with Macau-
lay in that democracies tend to de-
stroy themselves by creating dema-
gogues who become dictators. How-
ever, it is Professor Aigler's view that
the people should protect the democ-.
racy and not destroy it more rapidly
by advocating measures such as the
present one.
Many people point to President
Grant's so-called "packing" of the
Supreme Court as a precedent for
President Roosevelt's action, but Prof.
Aigler said that there was no parallel
whatsoever between the two cases. It
was merely a coincidence that the
Senate approved the appointments
of the two justices whose votes re-
versed the legal tender decision on
the same day that those cases were
Precedent Set(
The law is guided byethe Consti-
tution and it is the duty of the Su-
preme Court to decide those cases
which come before it in the light of
the constitutionality of the law under
which the case arises. The Supreme
Court, he said, is an honest body
which may be wrong in its decisions,
but which feels that its decisions are
made to the best of its ability and
which follow the letter of the law as
nearly as possible.
The power of the Supreme Court to
determine the constitutionality of a
law was determined in the case of
Marbury Is. Madison, and has never
been questioned, Prof. Aigler stated,
Promptly and neatly done by experi-
enced operators at moderate pr ices.
