In this letter J.J. Bulgar of Wichita, Kansas, summarizes events leading to the creation of the Kansas Court of Industrial Relations, the Kansas Supreme Court decision upholding the Industrial Court, and the U.S. Supreme Court decision that declared the Kansas law unconstitutional. In the U.S. Supreme Court decision, Chief Justice William Howard Taft argued that the Kansas law "curtails the right of the employer on the one hand, and the employee on the other, to contract about their own affairs."
