Mr. Withers made his home in Dixon, Ky. He had represented the Second District of Kentucky since Aug. 2, 1952. Before that he had served in the Senate, filling the unexpired term of Alben W. BARKLEY after Mr. Barkley was elected Vice President. Mr. Withers' death was announced at the Capitol by Dr. George W. CALVER, the Congressional physician.

The death was announced to the Senate by Senator Earle C. CLEMENTS of Kentucky. A resolution was unanimously adopted expressing the Senate's sorrow and calling for the appointment of two members to represent the Senate officially at the funeral. Senate Republican Leader Robert A. TAFT announced that next Thursday will be set aside for eulogies to the former Senator. The House will eulogize deceased members next Wednesday. Mr. Withers, one of the few persons to serve in the House after having been a Senator, was a member of the Post Office and Civil Service Committees.

Survivors include his widow; two sons, Thomas L. and Dr. John C. Withers, and a daughter, Mrs. R.B. GRIFFITH. Mr. Withers started his career as a school teacher. He was admitted to the Kentucky bar in 1908 and was a great believer in the dignity and worth of the legal profession. He said, "I would rather be known as a fairly good lawyer than anything else in the world. The stability of government the world over is due to the profession of law." A lifelong friend of Senator Clements, he supported his campaigns for Governor of the state. He had served as Second District Highway Commissioner from 1932-36, and in December, 1947, became State Highway Commissioner. He served until January, 1949, when Mr. Clements, then Governor, appointed him to fill Senator Barkley's post.
