And watched you slowly sinking.

When we were tpgether;

Since you have gone forever.

Mailing of Draft
Notices Is Resumed
The mails again are carrying
presidential greetings to draft reg
istrants in preparation for the end
of the two-month holiday.
Induction notices, it was learned,
started going out to District men
early in August to give them plenty
of notice to report next month.
The District will start sending
men to Baltimore for induction

white registrants and 17 colored

and transportation workers among
registrants eligible for deferment.

the Washington Cathedral. Despite
a heavy rain, the aged jurist—a
Southern Democrat and former At
torney General in the cabinet of
President Wilson—attended the serv
ices and stood with the only present
Republican member of the high
court, Associate Justice Burton.
His death leaves only two surviv
ing members of the court which
President Roosevelt said was made
up of “nine old men" living in a
“horse and buggy age.” They are
former Chief Justice Hughes and
former Justice Roberts. Of all mem
bers of the court, Justice McReynolds
was looked upon by the Roosevelt
administration as the bitterest foe of
most New Deal legislation.
“Adopted” 33 British Children.
Despite bis dissents and often
gruff speech from the bench, Jus
tice McReynolds had many close
friends attracted by a kindly per
sonal manner and an unostentatious
mode of life. He was a bachelor but
“adopted” 33 children in Great
Britain who were left homeless by
the German blitz. Throughout his
long active life, including 26 years on
the Supreme Court and many others
in the Government service, he never
lost his boyhood love for his Ken
tucky home.
When Justice McReynolds retired
from the Supreme Court February
1, 1941, after 26 years of service, he
was regarded by the Roosevelt ad
ministration as an arch-conserva
tive and the most uncompromising
foe of the New Deal.
He alone of all the Supreme Court
justices voted against every one of
the 13 major New Deal test cases
brought before the court from 1933
to 1936. With the appointment of
members more favorable to the
administration's policies, Justice
McReynolds continued in later
years as the court's leading dis
Expert on Jurisprudence.
A recognized expert on juris
prudence and on antitrust statutes,
he held the record in the court's
entire history for writing opinions
holding laws or parts of laws un
constitutional. He wrote nine of the
76 opinions of that kind.
At the time of his appointment
to the court by President Wilson in
August, 1914, Mr. McReynolds was
generally classified as a liberal and
looked upon in some circles as
almost a radical.
He was born February 3, 1862,
the son of a physician. After grad
uating from Vanderbilt Univer
sity in 1882 and obtaining his
law degree two years later at the
University of Virginia, he was sec
retary for a short time to the then
Senator Howell E. Jackson of Ten
nessee. later a Supreme Court jus
tice. Later he practiced law in
Ran for Congress In 1896.
His only excursion into campaign
politics came in 1896 when he ran
for Congress. As a "Gold Democrat’’
he was out of sympathy with the
Democratic presidential nominee,
William Jennings Bryan, but never
theless was defeated.
Nearly 40 years later, the gold
issue arose in a different form in
his most famous dissent on the
Supreme Court. It caused his most
widely quoted remark: “The Con
stitution is gone.”
He was moved to that utterance
from the Supreme Court bench
when, in 1935, he dissented from the
5-to-4 majority decision upholding
the administration's gold clause
Served under Theodore Roosevelt.
Although Mr. McReynolds entered
the cabinet of President Wilson in
March. 1913, as Attorney General and
served for 17 months until his ele
vation to the Supreme Court, he
earlier was an Assistant Attorney
General in the Republican admin
istration of President Theodore
Roosevelt from 1903 to 1907.
He was employed principally to
prosecute the “tobacco trust.” At
the time it was generally agreed
that politics played little or no part
in his selection by Attorney General
While Mr. McReynolds was At
torney General he took a stand on
judicial retirements that was to
echo in 1937, during the fight over
the New Deal plan to reorganize
the Supreme Court. He recom
mended In 1913 that whenever a
Federal judge refused to leave the
bench on reaching retirement age,
another judge should be appointed
for the same court. Mr. McReynolds.
however, specifically exempted the
Supreme Court.
Insisted on Applying Law Literally.
Before his appointment to the
Supreme Court, he was named by
the court to a committee to frame
laws regulating its jurisdiction. He
was quoted at that time and many
times since as insisting that law,
whether basic or statutory, meant
what it said, and that literal ap
plication should be the rule.
His appointment to the Supreme
Court reportedly resulted not only
from his abilities as a lawyer, but
from his inability or unwillingness
to enter actively into the political
party picture. He showed such a
disregard for political considera

tions that party leaders complained
to the White House.
On the Supreme Court bench, As
sociate Justice McReynolds soon be
came known for a sharp mind, in
dependence of thought and a caus
tic tongue. Some of his colleagues
were said to have found him ‘un
compromisingly combative.”
Champion of States' Rights.
He showed a strong dislike for
Federal encroachment on States'
rights and an unrelenting stand for
jthe gold standard and ' individual
! ism.”
The New Deal program ran coun
ter to most of his views. Not only
did he oppose the administration on
all major test cases up to 1936. but
during the historic 1936-37 term, he
supported administration conten
tions in only seven instances and
only when the court was unanimous.
He was the lone dissenter three
times. In the 1940 term, he voted
against the majority 11 times.
One of his principal dissents in
1937 was from the majority ruling
which applied the Wagner Labor
Relations Act to manufacturing
concerns whose products eventually
went into interstate commerce.
| He also dissented in cases involv
ing TV A and unemployment insur
ance provisions of the Social Secur
ity Act.
First to Comment on Controversy.
In the course of the bitter con
troversy over President Roosevelt's
proposed reorganization of the Su
| preme Court, Associate Justice Mc
| Reynolds was the first of the mem
bers to comment publicly. In a
speech at the Carlton Hotel in
March, 1937, he asked for "good
sportsmanship" in accepting deci
sions of a “fair tribunal.”
In later years he summed up his
opinions by declaring: “I believe in
the Constitution as written, not as
whittled away by tenuous reason
One of his early decisions which
attracted great notice was typical
of his opposition to governmental
centralization of power and what
he looked upon as invasion of per
sonal rights.
Defined Liberty.
In a 1923 decision he upheld the
right of parents to direct the educa
tion of their children under the 14th
Amendment. He defined liberty as
embracing “not merely freedom
from restraint but also the right of
the individual to contract, to engage
in any of the common occupations
of life, to acquire useful knowledge,
to marry, to establish a home and
bring up children, to worship God
according to the dictates of his own
conscience, and generally to enjoy
those privileges long recognized in
common law as essential to the pur
suit of happiness by free men.”
In general, his opinions in later
years were brief and to the point.
HC long before had built up a repu
tation for ability to get to the core
of arguments and issues. He also
had a reputation for bedevilling
lawyers and making curt com
He once remarked from the bepch
that he disliked “lady lawyers of
both sexes.”
At his home and in the social
gatherings he infrequently attended,
his friends found him kindly and
witty. He drank an occasional glass
of wine but apparently disapproved
of smoking. He is said to have or
dered "No Smoking” signs to be
posted in the new Supreme Court
Enjoyed the Circus.
Since 1937 he did not attend the
White House receptions or State
dinners for the Judiciary.
He had an often-avowed fond
ness for the circus and a liking
for duck hunting and golf. An
nually he had a New Year Day
reception at his home.
Never growing accustomed to the
present Supreme Court Building, he
did most of his work at his apart
ment. For several years before his
retirement he occasionally missed
court sessions, especially on decision
days. He did not attend the inau
guration of President Roosevelt
January, 1941. “I did not want to
expose myself to the cold,” he ex
Two days later he sent a two
sentence letter notifying the Presi
dent he intended to withdraw from
the court under the law permitting
retirement at full pay for justices
over 70 who served at least 10 con
secutive years.
President Roosevelt replied with a
brief acknowledgment which con
gratulated him on his “long service"
and wishing him “many years of
health and happiness.”
Retirement of Justice McReynolds
opened the way for Mr. Roosevelt
to make his sixth appointment to
the court. The President appointed

State, as Justice McReynolds’ suc
