It is November 1936. You are Secretary of Labor Frances Perkins, the first female cabinet secretary in American history. President Roosevelt has been re-elected in a landslide. However, there is an obstacle standing in the way of his New Deal legislation you have crafted and fought for: the Supreme Court.

The court has repeatedly struck down New Deal legislation. The situation is so bad that President Roosevelt is about to propose a court-packing plan that would undermine the separation of powers between the three branches of government. In light of the president's landslide victory, Associate Justice Owen Roberts is considering changing his stance to be more pro-New Deal.

You have written arguments that will convince Justice Roberts to support New Deal laws. You bring them to the Supreme Court. Too bad Justice Roberts's clerk there insists on three letter codes and a date code before sharing them with his boss. Go quick, because Justice Roberts is going to write his opinion in 45 minutes. Once he has made up his mind, there will be no changing it!

Figure out the codes, get your arguments to Justice Roberts, and save the New Deal!
