Caption: WIDE WORLD PHOTO : PLEASE WATCH CREDITNY-32285ANNOUNCES RETIREMENT FROM U.S. SUPREME COURTWashington, D.C. - One of Justice George Sutherland's most recent photographs, taken upon his arrival in New York September 20, 1937, aboard the liner Queen Mary following a vacation trip abroad. On Jan. 5 he notified President Roosevelt that he would retire on Jan. 18, after fifteen years of active service on the bench. Since the inauguration of the President, the 75-year-old Justice has been one of the most consistent opponents of administration legislation on the bench. He was one of a group of four Justices generally described as conservative. His retirement gives president Roosevelt his second opportunity to make an appointment to the Supreme Court.T-1/5/38 (s) FILE.
