It is not price clipped.  *On February 7, 1937, President Roosevelt delivered to Congress his famous message on the Supreme Court, in which he proposed a plan that might have increased the number of Justices from nine to a possible maximum of fifteen.  Thus he brought into open political consideration a smouldering intellectual disagreement almost as old as our country--the struggle between the Court on one hand, bent on establishing and maintaining the doctrine of judicial supremacy, and on the other those liberal individuals and groups who have wished the Court to restrain itself from reviewing matters of legislative policy and thus often placing itself in opposition to the will of the people as expressed through the Congress."...dj
