Author and sponsor of Wagner Labor Relations congratulate each other on Supreme Court decision. Washington, D.C. April 12. Today was a happy one for Senator Robert F. Wagner of New York, author of the Wagner Labor Relations Act, and Senator David I. Walsh, (right) of Massachusetts, who sponsored the bill in the United States Senate. They were together as they heard the Supreme Court uphold the validity of the act today--unanimously in the cases of the Jones and Laughlin Steel Corp., and the Washington, Virginia and Maryland Coach Co.

If we have to make speeches until morning!' Austin on Senate filibuster. Washington, D.C., July 1. The Senate met at noon yesterday and kept going until 1:53 the next morning. Reason was that a republican bloc, opposed to allowing the President continued power to devalue the dollar and the Treasury to dip into the $2,000,000,000 stabilization fund, filibustered until midnight, at which time the power was supposed to lapse. Some opinion held that the power could again be granted, even after that time, so Senator Warren R. Austin told reporters that he had a list of 10 Senators who would speak if it held the Senate in session until dawn. The monetary authorization was, as was promised, 'talked to death'
