CHILD LABOR AMEND MENT The reason for the proposed Amendment to the Federal Con stitution is that the Supreme court of the United States has declared that Congress has no power to legislate. The proposed amendment is in no sense a la .v governing such matters butnn authorization of such legislation as Congress may deem wise. Neither State or Federal legis lation has so far attempted to regulate the labor of children on the farm or in the home, nor is such action proposed by the supporters of the amendment.
