STATES RIGHTS AND THE COURT
Not since 1937 has the Supreme Court found
itself such a focus for controversy among Ameri-
cans. Not since the Civil War have states rights
been so warmly debated as they are today. De-
segregation in schools and busses is only the
most spectacular of the states-rights issues lately
propelled toward decision.
Federal versus state authority. has been
clearly involved in the offshore oil question, the
legislation on natural gas regulation, in the
Bricker amendment, in laws recently adopted
in Alabama and South Carolina to discriminate
against Japanese textiles, in state "right-to-work"
and sedition laws, and in many other activities.
Dissimilar as they may appear, they are definite-
Some of these issues are brought to notice
by Supreme Court decisions as in the recent
sedition case an dthe segregation cases. But it
would be a mistake to conclude that the court
has been goin ground hunting up cases through
which it can curtail state powers. The court's
action has developed out of normal operation of
the judicial system in trying cases brought be-
It is true also that in recent years the gen-
eral direction of the court's rulings has been to-

ward at ffrfmation of federal power. WMil
the sharpest opposition has arisen in the South
and over segregation, other people and interests
have manifested concern. In the Offshore oil
dispute Congress nullified a Supreme Codrt de-
cision, and the recently vetoed gas bill was in-
tended to do the same;
The so-called Smith bill, now pending,
would require that no act of Congress be con-
strued as an effort to take exclusive federal jur-
isdiction in a given field unless the measure
specifically declares that to be the intention of
the lawmakers. This wording is aimed directly
at the recent ruling by the court striking down
sedition acts in 42 states. In this decision the
court did not attempt to prevent states from
legislating to protect themselves but said that
Congress had preempted defense of the nation-
al government by federal antisedition legisla-
It is unlikely that the Smith bill will be en-
acted in this session of Congress, and -this is
well, for it raises questions of the deepest consti-
tutional import. Nothing having to do with the
balance of powers between the states and the
national government should be acted upon has-
tily. Nor simply because one interest or sec-
tion finds a special reason at a particular time
to demand a change.
Sometimes one group or another is convinc-
ed that individual rights are best upheld by na-
tional action as the desegregationists now
feel about civil rights. But many of these same
people might find themselves interested -in an-
other cause where it appeared that the states
were their, most effective champions as the
segregationists feel today. The fact is that
Americans are fortunate to'have a dual citizen-
ship served by two sogereignties.
Technological and economic developments,
plus the threat of Communist aggression and
hydrogen bombs, tend to underscore the neces-
sity for a strong national government. But the
federal system derives much of its strength from
diversity yin unity. Thoughtful citizens will
study well all the advantages and obligations
- of their dual citizenship and move with care
before altering the balance.

FARMER'S FRMND-'Soo6 onb
for Congressman Billy Matthews;
The House passed his maU water-
shed bill last week. -Under the bill,
small watershed districts can be
organized for flood control and wa-
ter conservation, with the Federal,
Government paying the cost on' the
flood control part of the program.
Farmers and other groups who or-
ganize watershed associations can
develop the projects for recreation,
municipal water supply, or use by
industry and can borrow up to
$250,000 for their project from Un
cle Sam. If the bill passes the Sen-
ate, you can look for many small
watershed projects to spring up in
the 8th District. The passage of
this bill, in the midst of hi hot
political race, probably will ensure

Fred would have picked St. Pat-

shock, for he was one of those rare

idle chatter and what he had to

wept the loudest on the announce-

thought so-highly of him we're
at a- loss to see why they did not
give him a free reign in television.
Always a radio hit, Fred never
got his feet off the ground In the
new medium until he reached the
panel of "What's My Line?" He
had several shows, all of them un-
suited for his particular brand of
humor We remember meeting
Fred in New York when he was
at his peak in radio His best
gags were used for warming up
the audience because they were
censored from use on the air .

never knew how extremely witty
