Feb. 24.--Charlea Evans Hughes, son of a Welsh Baptist clergyman, today bx?came Chief Justice of UK; United States, a position -with more potential power in some respects than the Prosklency h« so narrowly missed in 1916. Mr. Hughes, 67, cue of the heat- known p u b l i c figures in the country, took two oaths of office at noon and then aosumod a big cushioned chair behind tho mahogany bench which is the Supremo Court bar. Mr. Hughes, served as associate justice from 1910 to 1916, on appointment of President Taft. Now he lakes the place on the bench held for olght years by Mr. Taft, who resign-ed as Chief Justice three w-esks a^o today because of serious illness. He takes office after a baptism of fire in Senate debate owr confirmation of his appointment by President Hoover--an attack on economic liue« against the Supreme Court for its economic beliefs a« well as against Mr. Hughes, who has represented many largo corporations ia the courts during tho last five years. The new Chief Jusf.ice- and President Hoover made no reply, and now that Mr. Hughes is assuming toe black silk robes of office, bis only rep l y w i l l be in the decisions he writes, and each must bo confined to the facts and la-wtj of a statement of facts. Justices have no "statements for the press" or speeches, as olii associate justice who has been Chief Justice, administered the constitutional oath of allegiance to Mr. Hughes in tho court rolling-room. in t h e presence only of tho other justices, a few minutes before noon. . . . . 4 , Tben t h e judicial oath -was admin- contract woentJy aecurod wl |_P rov.de j |glored by Ho , meg 1n ( h c o u r t r o o m Bt*ady employment for 150 r r e n at tho Cunningham mine near f-hinnslon W.
