J. a. Baker, the secretary of the Central Labor Union in Parsons, Kansas, sends Kansas Governor Henry Allen, of Topeka, a resolution protesting the proposed industrial court legislation. Baker refers to the resolution as the most autocratic and un-American legislation ever proposed in Kansas. The industrial court legislation was passed into law in 1920 but remained on the books for only a few years when it was declared unconstitutional by the United States Supreme Court.
