That court has headquarters at Chicago and embraces the states of Indiana Illinois and Wisconsin. President Truman opened a news conference by announcing his choice of Minton to succeed the late Justice Wiley B. Rutledge on the nation's highest court. He also announced that: Judge Walter C. Lindley of the U. S. Court for the Eastern District of Illinois will succeeed Minton on the appellate court. Casper plntte, now « circuit judge of Illinois, will succeed Lindley. Noj- 58, Minton Is a democrat and a Protestant, but his wife Is Catholic. There had bi-cn speculation before the appointment that Mr. Truman might choose a catholic lor the high court.

His Semite desk was next to that of then Senator Harry Truman of Missouri and the two became close friends. • As a senator, Minton ivns an embattled "New Dealer" and a vigorous fighter for the Itaoscvelt administration's measures. He foucht hard for President Roosevelt's plan to add new justices to the Supreme Court to the number of those over age 70 wiio did not retire. As the aee of the justices then slor/d. tiie plnn would have enlarged the court from nine lo 15 members. 1 The court of that time had de- cmrcd unconstitutional major log islation which the president hacked as essential to the country. With the shilling of political tides, Minton was defeated for reelection to the senate in 19)0 by Raymond E. Willis. Republican. Miuton sent back to Indiana, but President Roosevelt quickly called him back to Washington and namrd him as one of his administrative assistants.

' July Missouri Pacific Proposal to End Strike is Studied Brotherhood Officials Confer on Proposal After Joint Session ST. LOUIS. Sept, 15. (AP)-Unioii officials studied a company proposal today for ending the Missouri Pacific Railroad strike. The proixisal was submitted at a Joint session of representatives of MIO railroad and striking brotherhoods yesterday. Both sides said they were optimistic niter the incct- hig. The strike began last Fridny Four operating brotherhoods called the walkout over 282 union claims asalmt the railroad. Under (he proposal submitted yesterday, 59 of the claims would be paid outright or Investigated more thoroughly and paid if found to be sfrnilnr to those already conceded. The unions previously had offered to withdraw about 80 claims to help reach a settlement. Disputed claims governed by the Railway Labor Act would be turned over to the National Railroad Ad- Justmen Board or a neural referee or to the courts. 1 In previous talks, the unions turned down the National Adjustment Board and arbitration. The company's proixisal was similar to one which brought about settlement of a strike against the Walinsh Railroad last March. The walkout has reduced the number of freight car exchanges here by about 3.000 daily. Normally about 10.000 cars arc interchanged from one^major railroad to another by the terminal railroad association. Tlie terminal road also announced the layoff of 100 workers because or the strike.
