No problem of life has ever been solved by dodging facts and running away from the truth. Them're many teachers who know the difference be- tween teaching and learn- ing, but who cannot teach.

Dissenting Opinion News stories about split deci- sions by the United States Su- preme Court must surely be- wilder many a reader. What the majority confidently asserts in Paragraph One, dissenters just as confidently deny in Paragraph Two. What shall the ordinary citizen make of all this? If even the ex- perts cannot agree on what the law is, how can plain folk be ex- pected to know? Of course, the law is what the majority opinion says it is. A dis- senting opinion has no legal force. In fact, in many countries, dis- senting opinions are simply Dot allowed. Once a majority deci- sion is reached, dissenters are ex- pected to keep their views to them,selves. But .o0 ,our, Supreme Court, ,pub|to-dissen~ Ass a long and ,re- spectable history. It has been a regular feature of the Court ever since 1806, when a holdout justice voiced his disagreement with Chief Justice John Marshall. One great virtue of this right of dissent ("the only thing that makes life tolerable," said Justice William O. Douglas) is that it may help shape the law of the future. Major changes in the law, including even amendments to the Constitution, have had roots in earlier dissenting opinions from the Court. Still, dissents, if overdone, can needlessly weaken both public un- derstanding and public acceptance of a Court ruling. At least, say critics, a judge should not dissent merely because of minor disagree- ment or personal pride. Statistics do show that rela- tively few of the dissenting opin- ions -- even those of Oliver Wendell Holmes, the "Great Dis- senter" -- have ever become the law of the land. Is it surprising that dissents oc- cur so often? Not when one con- siders the kind of questions the Court must answer. Almost al- ways, they are questions on which even the wisest and fairest of men may differ. The easy ones just never reach the Court at all.
