"THURSDAY, SEPTEMBER 8, 1949 Speed in Courts Urged by Vinson Chief Justice Critical Of Technical Delays In Judicial Halls ST. LOTUS. Sept. 8-(/P)_ChIef Justice Fred M. vinson of the United States called on the nation's lawyers and Judges yesterday to cut down on delay ex- pens* and technicalities. In * speech before for the American Bar Association, in convention here, vinson said: "The elimination of excessive delay, expense »nd technicalities in judicial proceedings Is, in my opinion, the most important project facing the American bench and bar today." He shov»*d some ways to go about Jt; To lighten the work of the ••»•• Supreme Court, he asked the States to provide post-trial hearings for complaining prisoners. Many prisoners ,;ow appeal directly to the supreme court, often in their own hand-writing, Vinson said that In the last three years nearly half of the matters received by (he supreme court came from prisoners—although the court excepted only four per cent of Ihem for decisions. Prisoners' petitions have totaled about 600 a year, he said, and "something should be done to stem the (low" since most have "little or no leeal merit. Discusses Dissenting Opinions He said 49 per cent of the prisoners petitions the last three years came from Illinois. But, he added "happily a new Illinois state statute provides a definite, conprehensive post-trial remedy, and I am confident that the next few years will show a marked decline In the number of petitions from that state." Turning to the subject of dissenting opinions In the supreme court the chief justice disclosed that a dissent sometimes "has so much logic, reason and authority to support It. that It becomes the opinion of the court." In such cases the Justlc* who wrote the indended majority opinion usually holds his (round and turns his opinion Into i dinent, he aaid. Paying tribuU to the laU Jus- _ilce Frank Murphy, Vinson said ^''hli passing deeply touched the JiearU ot all who knew him while th« poor underprivileged, the accused and minorities of many shades of belief mourned the passing of one who had been their protagonist ... he wag honest in hli Judgment*, industrious la hi* Immunity Sought By Cedric Worth Navy Officer Says WASHINGTON, Sept. 8. W) — Jndersecretary of the Navy Dan A. Klmball testified yesterday that the author of the once-anonymous memo tn ' touched off the B-36 >omber Investigation once asked him for immunity. Klmball said his suspended special assislant. Cedric Worth, author of the document, told him last Hay "he could find out who wrotf t if it would promise immunity." That was before Worth acknowl- ;dged In a congressional Investigation that he was the author. Klmball, a. rvltness in a special Savy court investigation of the background of the paper said he :ouldn't offer immunity. He added that he didn't even know what the mmunltv would be from. Furthermore, Kimbal! said, he doesn't know anybody else In the Navy who might have prepared the memo. BLYTHEVTI.LE (ARK.)

Ei-War Secretary Speaks Speaking at an earlier session, Robert P. Patterson, former secretary ot war, said that he believes the nation's present policy of strengthening the cause of personal freedom may prevent a third world war. He added that a continuation of that policy wherever possible is the most promising road to real peace. But, he added, as long as Moscow continues it persistent Communist creed of world revolution, "mutual trust among nations can be nothing more than a faint echo." The frenzied cries coming out of Moscow against Tito at present are ominously reminiscent of the shrill threats of Hitler against the Poles 10 years ago," he declared. However, the Atlantic treaty Is "plain notice to moscow that the design, characteristic of conquerors from Philip of Macedonia down to Hitler—the startegy of knocking victims off one By one—is no longer available." Chief justice Fred M. Vinson of the U.S. Supreme Court spoke at 1 another dinner sponsored by the 1 bar association's Judicial Administration Section. He said the delay, expense and needless technicalities of America's courts can be corrected by "establishment of businesslike methods." Chief justices or their representatives from most of the state supreme courts attended the dinner. THE BKABAZON IS AlRBOK.VE-Brftam's Brabazon, world's largest cIvU land plane.
