Mr. Justice McREYNOLDS delivered theopinion of the Court.These appeals are from decrees, based upon un-denied allegations, which granted preliminary
orders restraining
appellants fromthreatening or attempting to enforce the Compuls-ory EducationActFN1adopted November 7, 1922(Laws Or. 1923, p. 9), under the initiative provisionof her Constitution by the voters of Oregon. Judi-cial Code, § 266 (Comp. St. § 1243). They presentthe same points of law; there are no controvertedquestions of fact. Rights said to be guaranteed bythe federal Constitution were specially set up, andappropriate prayers asked for their protection.The challenged act, effective September 1, 1926,requires every parent, guardian, or other personhaving control or charge or custody of a childbetween 8 and 16 years to send him ‘to a publicschool for the period of time a public school shallbe held during the current yearin the districtwhere the child resides; and failure so to do is de-clared a misdemeanor. There are

The manifest purpose is to compel generalattendance at public schools by normal children,between 8 and 16, who have not completed theeight grade.
