The target will be named by the

THURGOOD MARSHALL became the first Negro Supreme Court Justice yesterday when the Sen-
ate confirmed his appointment by an overwhel ming majority. Marshall succeeds Justice Tom C.
Clark, who resigned at the end of the last term to avoid any conflict of interest because of the
appointment of his son, Ramsey, as attorney general. Opposition to Marshall's appointment came
primarily from southern Senators who disliked his "ultra liberal" and "individual activist" attitudes.
They claimed that his appointment created a built-in majority in the Supreme Court that would
undermine the constitutional roots of the coun try. The opposing Senators said that Marshall's
race was not a deciding factor in their vtes.
