WASHINGTON, Jan. 15.-(P)-
More than a hundred years ago
there appeared in a Boston paper
a poem beginning:
"Ay, tear her tattered ensign
Written by a youngster just out
of Harvard, that bit of verse saved
the frigate Constitution, "Old Iron-
sides," from the ship wrecker's
A century later she still lifts to
the surge of the blue waters where
she made history, a glorious mem-
orial to herself and the long dead
brave who peopled her decks.
But that old, never-to-be-forgot-
ten verse did more than that.
It set intoAmerican history a
glowing page, all its own, for the
name Oliver Wendell Holmes. Poet
father and soldier-jurist son have
kept it bright in American hearts-
for more than ten decades.
They have kept faith with the
patriotism the father sang, that the
son wrote into the vital philosophy
of American law. They have made
a household word of the name they
Never His Like.
Now, his snowy head bent under
his years but his heart ageless, the
son has stepped off the bench of
the highest court that, for all its
great men, has never known just
Yet in severing his tie of active
service to the nation, to know a
little the honored retirement so
long a g o fully earned, Justice
Hol es displayed once more that
gall ntry of spirit that in father
and son alike has found responsive
echoes in American hearts.
He spoke in his letter of resigna-
tion of the "absorbing interests
that have filled my life.
"But the time has come and I
bow to the inevitable," the old
justice added...."My last w or d
should be one of grateful thanks.'
There is something about those
words that gives them emotional
thrill, that harks back to the poet
They are of a piece with many
another touch of poetic conception
the son has found words to express
within the cold, factual require-
ments of judicial utterance.
Justice Holmes is renowned for
the philosophy of law that guided
him, for the unwavering conception
of the true purpose and meaning
of democratic government under
law he never failed to voice.
That made him known as the
great dissenter, yet he\ always re-
jected that view of his place in
American jurisprudence. He felt
himself merely keeping faith with
the spirit and purpose in which the
nation was born.
And he ended his active career
with a gallant gesture. It was like
the greeting he invariably gave in
court to comrades or foemen in
old wars on the bench.
Finger tips rose to time-frosted
eyebrow in military salute as he
paassed, and a twinkling glance
added its own message.

Poister has studied piano with Joseph Lhevinne,
organ with Wilhelm Middle-Schulte, and theory with
Leo Sowerby and Arthur Olaf Anderson. For two

fessor d'Orgue au Conservatoire de Paris. He has
served as professor of organ at the University of Red-
