The Chief Justice's chair e bench was draped in black. recessed until tomorrow after a brief cession devoted to eulogizing the man described by Senate Democratic Leader Albcn W. Barklcy, Ky., as "one of the greatest public servants within the generation i live." in which we The White House said Mr. Truman, witnessing Atlantic fleet maneuvers as part of a scheduled one- week vacation cruise, probably would return for Stone's funeral. Funeral services will be held at 2 p.m. (EST) Thursday at (he Episcopal National Cathedral. Burial will be in Washington at a private service. Two nags in front of the glistening white marble Supreme Court building flapped at half-staff, in a Spring breeze. Senate I'a.vs Tribute Across the street, the Senate heard hushed.eulogies to Stone, adopted a resolution expressing deep sorrow and authorized appointment of a six-man committee to attend Ihe funeral. Then it recessed for the day—the first time the Senate has so honored a Supreme Court official since 1921. President Truman originally p ncrt to return Sunday from iiis vacation In tile Atlantic and Chcsn- peskc Bay. But Assistant White House Press Secretary Eben Ayres -said that Slone's death last night ~~*" nt's probably will hasten the Preside return. He said them had been no direct word from Mr. Truman as yet After Mr. Truman returns, he wil be confronted with the.task of appointing n successor fo the 13-year- old chief justice who was appointed to the high court by Calvin Cool- Idge in 1925 and elevated to the chief justiceship by the late President Roosevelt in 19-11. Members of the Senate generally believed that Mr. Truman would elevate one of the present justices and name a new associate justice. Jackson, prosecutor of the Nazi war crimes trials, and Reed were mentioned most prominently for the top court post. Associate Justices William O. Douglas nnd Hugo Black also figured in some speculation. Some Senate Democrats said that, if one of the present justices is elevated, they would expect the appointment of a Republican as an associate. Only one Republican now is left on the court. He is Harold H. Burton, former Ohio senator and Mr. Truman's first court appointee. There was speculation that Secretary of War Robert P. Patterson would be the choice if a Republican is named as associate justice. Secretary of Labor Lewis B. Sctiwcllcn- bach was said to be in line it Mr. Truman chooses a Democrat. Others Possible Choices Others being mentioned were Sens. Warren H. Austin, R.. Vt., nnd Joseph C. O'Mahoney. D.. Wyo: Jurtee John J. Parker of Charlotte. N. C.. senior judge of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals, a Republican whose nomination to the court by former President Hoover 15 years ago was rejected by ttie Senate: and Judge Orie L. Phillips of tlic 10th Circuit Court of Appeals, Denver, a Republican. Mr. Truman, who received news of Stone's death last night, radioed a message of condolence to the chief justice's family from aboard the aircraft carrier Franklin D. Roosevelt in the Atlantic. Among those who called at the Stone home today to pay their respects were Justice Black and Undersecretary of War Kenneth S Royall. An hour before the court held a brief noon session to make formal announcement ol Stone's death, scores of spectators filed quietly into tlic massive white Supreme Court building to attend the ceremonies. The bench was draped in black as was Stone's vacant chair, from which he delivered his last opinio; —a dissent—only yesterday. Stone, a Cooltdgc Republican appointee who became a staunch defender of much New Deal legislation, died last night, five hours after being stricken while trying to lie was "terribly shocked." "The doath of Chief Justice Stone is a grievous loss to the country." he said. "He was a great "justice and great American." Tlie President's sentiments were echoed by Stone's colleagues on the court bench and by prominent ng- ures in Congress and all other branches of the government. Mr. Truman returns to Norfolk today to board the presidential yacht Williamsburg. He had planned to spend the rest of the week cruising on Chesapeake -Bay. Although nothing definite had been decided, he was expected to cut his trip short to attend funeral services for Stone. Black, the senior associate justice, becomes presiding judge until a new- chief justice is nominated by the President and confirmed by the Senate. He will call the court to order at noon today to announce an adjournment until after Stone's funeral. Final rites were being arranged bv the widow, the former Agnes Harvey, and the Stone's two sons. Marshall H. Stone of Cambridge. Mass., and Col. Lauson H. Stone, U. S. Army retired, of New York City. All were with the chief justice when he died at 6:45 p.m. in his sprawling, comfortable but unpretentious brick residence in northwest Washington. A single light shone dimly from an upper story room when Marshall Stone.left the home to tell reporters with red-eyed bewilderment that the chief justice looked "perfectly .well" when he went to his final session with the court which he had served for 21 ":ars.

He picked up what oppeared to be A letter instead of a legal document He fumbled with it an instant, then turned to confer with Justices Black and Stanley F. Reed. They looked puzzled. The usually-decisive Stone looked at the clock uncertainly. II was 1:45 p.m.—15 minutes before the. court's tradition-bound time for luncheon "icess. Stone mumbled something that had 110 relation to the work sit hand —It sounded like "these matters require further revision and I think the proceedings should be stopped " The court crier, sensing something was wrong, stepped forward with "Can I do anything?" Black, as ranking associate justice nodded for the end of the court session. He and Reed helped Stone leave the chamber through the red velvet curtains behind the bench They closed limply behind Stone before the audience could appreciate the import of the swift-moving events they had seen. Dr. George Calver. the capital physician, and Dr. H. A. Grcn- naofn the chief Justice's personal physician, hurried to the' court building.
