WEDNESDAY, JULY 20, 1949 BLYTHEVILLE (ARK.) COURIER NEWS PAGE SEVEN THf NAT/ON TODAY— Justice Murphy's Opinions Involved Individual Rights By 3ame& Marlow WASHINGTON, July 20— <Jf>— There are mixed opinions on lh« sUture of Justice Frank Murphy, who died yesterday. <ti|> But if «ny epitaph i» needed for him this one would be true: He wrote well and thought In terms of people. His opinions had life and feeling. Compared with some supreme court opinions that have been handed down, his were clear and easy to read. * •— It is tasy for a man, elevated to 15 years? the great eminence of the supreme court, to grow far away from people ond think of abstract principles. Murphy kept his eyes on human beings. He had great concern for the rlgnls or individuals. Uisstnlini Opinion Quoted Tills, perhaps, sums up Oils philosophy as well as anything: | '•The Immutable rights of the Individual including those secured by the due proce-ss clause of the Fifth Amendment, belong not alone to tho members of those nations that excell on Hie battlefield or thai, subscribe to the democratic Ideo- loyy. "They belong to every |>erson in the world, victor and vanquished, whatever may be his race, color or beliefs. They rise abov* any status of belligerency or outlawry. : "They survive any popular passion or frenzy of the moment. No court or legislature o executive,! not even the mightiest army in the world, can ever destroy them. "Such Ls the universal and indestructible nature of the rights ' 'ch the Pifth Amendment recog- And yet this forgetfulness about, some of this country's most distinguished men Ls ,in a backhanded kind of way, probably one of the best signs of the country's almost inexhaustible richness in ability. Men of lalenl, o! great earnestness for public service, come out of comparative oblivion, work faithfully for the nation, retire or die, and there seems to be an endleas stream place. of able men to take their SET FOR JET—This is an artist's conception of the new jet-propelled Hying wing which will feature six jet engines instead of the piston-powered ones installed in older models of the 10t)-ton plus B-35's.

He wrote lhat In a caustic dissent when a majority of the supreme court upheld a U.S. Army commission's death sentence for the captured Japanese general, Tomo- yukl Yamashlta, in 1946. The Washington Post, which today discussed Murphy's place in supreme court history, acknowledges his concern for the rights of Individuals but thinks he falls R good deal short, of greatness. It says: "In spit* of his devotion to the cause of civil rights and his humanitarian spirit. Murphy can not be regarded as one of the great men. of the American judiciary. "His special talent was not that of the judge but that of the crusader, and his record might well have been more notable if he hac not attempted to reconcile hi-s hu- manitaranism with a judicial robe." It's probably too soon to call the shot on Murphy. He was certainly sensitive to the times he lived ii when the maintenance of civil . rights every day becomes more of ; an issue.

The ex-miners return to the farms where they scratch out an ex istence with crude farm implements or migrate to the cities where, if their lungs are not too badly damaged, they become transportation or factory workers- Others become public charges or burdens for their families.
