New Deal Changes Manner of Court Stands Less on Dignity Today—Some Appoint-' ees Surprising *U.v I'KKSTON GKOVGIt WASHINGTON - The death of Justice Pierce Butler gives President Roosevelt his fifth appointment to the Supreme Court and there is a better than average chance he may liuve an opportunity to appoint one and perhaps two more. The health of Chief Justice Hughes i.s such that he ha.s given up all social activities, although of all tho members he wus the most socially inclined. He has not reduced one 4ata the staggering amount of work that falls upon a Chief Justice. Observers who know his disposition express the belief that if a time arrives when he cannot accomplish his full f)iiot;i of work with hi- old assurance, he will retire at mice. The possible retirement or Justice McReynolds has been rumored and forgotten n half do/en times. It i.s widely believed thai he mice had do- HAYNES Bros.

That wny he could keep open one place for a non-New Deal appointment if tile elections should run that way. Yet with the death of Butler. Mc- Roynolds' only persistent associate in diroenl is gone. Those two were the ."iirvivors of the con servulive group which blocked New Deal legislation until the mid-way course charted by Chief Justice Hughes won the support of Justice Roberts in 1937. That swung the court majority to thu liberal side. McReynokls was bitter at the shift of direction, and his displeasure has been displayed often. To remain on the court will leave to him the whole burden of supporting and writing the dissents, a job which had been shared liberally by the more suave, diplomatic Butler. Less 'Dignity' The whole personality of the court has changed as markedly as the tone o) its opinions on sociological and governmental issues, The four pre-New Deale members, Hughes, McReynokls, Roberts and £loni>, arc elderly and dignified, some of them stern. The four Roosevelt appointees. Frankfurter, Reed, Black and Douglas, are far less so, although in court Reed frowns, almost glowers vrim tho bench. Once behind the vel- vet curtains that shield them from the court spectators, the four newly appointed members are ebullient, so report comes out. Except for the gracious though commanding presence of Chief . Justice Hughes them are no "out-standing personalities" on the court to rival the late Justice Oliver Wendel Holmes and the retired Justice Bradeis. So for no close friendships have developed even among the New Dealers like those which characterized that of Holmes with his one time colleagues Bradeis and the late Chief Justice While. Some Disappointment In the eyes of old time observers, the new, members have presented both surprises and disappointments. Justice Black, who took his seat undei a rain of criticism for his asserted Klan connections, writes some of the most consise opinions of the court. Justice Douglas, these observers say. has a clear, logical mind akin to Hughes. Amazing to some are the wordy, involved opinions of Justice Frankfurter who came to the bench in a smother of praise amounting to adulation. His associates, including the Chief Justice, seem to find his questions from Ihe bench time-consuming and often pointless. Once Chief Justice Hughes silenced him rather peremp. Submarine Net to Be Usedby U.S.A. British Invention May Be Placed Across Harbors in U.S. WASHINGTON -f/P)— Congressional sources said Friday that the navy may ask congress for funds to equip some of the nation's major harbors, particularly those used by the fleet, with the latest type of antisubmarine nets. Well-informed persons said naval officials had learned that the British had developed a new type of antisubmarine net so far superior to anything in the United States that consideration is being given to seeking about 40 million dollars to provide similar protection for American harbors.

We have reason Io believe he i.s dead. What has he to do with this Benthorne murder?" "Just a minute, son," Dawson But now, anything she might say, even the truth, would have to be proved. And Dawson was no ordinary detective. A look o£ imperturbable calm masked her inward emotional turmoil as she turned back to the (able. Joey di Torio stirred Ins coffee noisily.

But if you'll let mo talk to Ara, alone, /or a few minutes—" "What possible reason could your uncle have—.supposing he were alive—to kill Benthorne?" was no cordiality in her voice. Ara nodded. "Just what do you'' plan to do now?" Mrs. Benthorne demanded. "I know you must hale me, Mrs. Benthorne," Ara answered as she from the table, faced the Douglas shook his head.

At last he handed it over to Douglas, saying: "You may as well know that your admission that 'Big Red' is ing of yours that I want. I intended leaving here as quickly as possible.

OHN DOUGLAS' precipitous entrance and ill-considered babbling had Jcft Ara inwardly raging. What a fool, .she thought, io have come here immediately. H lie Jiad only waited until tile first editions were on the streets With the Benthoriie murder story, Mrs. Benlhorne's lace became crimson as she slarled to answer. "Why—you— you—" Bui her enigmatic smile returned when she glimpsed Dawson and Douglas leaving the study. "Be quiet, now," she ordered Ara. "Here comes the detective. I'll see you later." . . . And as Dawson entered . . . "Your breakfast suggestion \vaj quite right, Captain. A little cof« fee has done wonders for me." "I thought so, Mrs. Benthorne," Dawson answered. "Will you com* with me, now, Mrs. Benthorne? I'll have to search the house for a gun—the gun—and I should prefer that you were along." "If you insist, Captain." "John, you'd better have som« food, too," Dawson said. "The butler will bring you ec'Sfee and toast and whatever else you want." * * * "JOHN ate in silence. Only when Ara rose and started to leave did he turn to her. "Ara, the time has come to tell the truth. You and I are going ta be accused of a murder, if we don't tell Captain Dawson all the facts. I know it won't be ea^sy. 1 ' "I don't see where I am involved. I—" site began. "But you are, Ara, and I have io know why," Douglas interrupted. "Tell me the truth, Ara and perhaps I can save you. . . . What were you doing in Ben« (home's study last night?" She turned on him angrily. "1 wasn't in Benthorne's study last night. What makes you ask that?" He drew a button—a red, peculiarly-shaped button, from his vest pocket, held it beside t\va similar buttons on the sleeve of her dress. "Haven't you missed this?" She snatched the button from his hand. "Where did you find thai? Does Dawson know?" Then as she became calmer: "There are thousands of billions just like tlm one, why bother me with it?" "There are three on your other sleeve." It was true. "All right, suppose I was in Benthorne's study. I was there tliis morning, talking to Captain Dawson. He knows that. When tlid you find it? "1 found it in a chair—it fell out of a chair—last night," Douglas answered slowly. "Benthorne was dead—did you see him last night?" He .was pleading for the truth, although his own words were self- condemning. "Yes," Ara answered slowly, as her eyes met his, "i saw Arnold, Benthorne last night. But it was early in ihe evening—long befor* he was killed." Be j torily. Tlie irritable McReynolds has barked at him repeatedly to let the lawyers, and not the court members, present (he eases.
