FIGHT ON CONSTITUTIONALITY
OF ADAMSON LAW COMMENCES
Supreme Court Hears Opening of Big
Case With Davis Arguing
Washington, Jan. 8.-The govern-
ment's,4ght to prevent the Adamson
law from being cast aside as uncon-
stitutional began in the United States
supreme court this afternoon.
Special Assistant, Attorney General
Hagerman, after argument begun, filed
a brief in the supreme court denounc-
ing the railroads "for trying to delay
the test of the Adamson law and ask-
ing a reversal of the lower court's de-
cree holding the law unconstitutional."
Railroad attorneys immediately filed a
brief in answer, denying they had tried
to delay the suit and stating that a
"promise not to test the constitution-
ality of the law" alleged by the gov-
ernment, was hinging on the passage
of the president's whole railroad pro-
gram, particularly the strike preven-
Solicitor General Davis, opening

The eight-hour law came up on a
test case brought by receivers of the
Missouri, Oklahoma and Gulf railroad,
in the western Missouri district court,
before Judge Hook, who ruled the law
unconstitutional. Davis hinted that

Michigan had 350 men and four women
at that time. Michigan, however, now
has six women in faculty positions,
