stimulus of pro gress has been felt in practically all other lines of endeavor in the matter of laws and legal procedure we still In the middle ages but little removed from the methods of the time of the Magna Charta the Bill of Rights and the other great documents of human freedom that wrested from unwilling oppressors that liberty which IB the heritage of the AngloSaxon race In fighting for this freedom we built about the In dividual scores safeguards that are now serving only to givs the criminal immunity from be cause legal procedure has not kept up with the times While there have been rapid and revolutionary changes in wealth and distribution while science and business organization mechanical inventions such as the automobile airplane movie telephone radio and the In crease in population with its appended problems have completely changed our mode of living the old laws for the regulation of human conduct remain almost un chajiged The result is that there have grown up a num ber of abuses and problems with which the old laws are unable to cope and which have brot poignant need of some farreaching reforms Our legal procedure product of the dark ages as it is is still based on the premise that there exists a cruel and powerful monarch that men are punished by death for more than 200 offenses some of them the most trifling violations This condition in the middle ages caused men who were struggling for freedom to build up an extreme ly technical court procedure to protect themselves from the savagery of the law Since then the savagery ot the has disappeared England has discarded the tech nicalities while America still holds on to them tWquated rule that is the result of this system the prosecuting attorney cannot without being subjected to contempt of court comment upon the fact that does not testify There was a reason for this rule in the old days when defendants were not allowed to testify What could be more sensible and logical than have a defendant who without a doubt knows more about a case than anyone else to testify And should he refuse to do so the prosecuting attorney should have the right to comment on It Our jury system too is archaic Originally juries were selected on account ot their knowledge of the offense and then unanimous verdicts were required It Is at present the opinion ot leading lawyers that now since jurors have no knowledge of the case that a 10 to 2 verdict is sufficient This would prevent most of the jury dis agreements Another barrier which has been thrown In the way of the state under tho present system is that it hns no right to appeal in civil cases The defendant if found guilty has the right to appeal his case to the supreme court If some error is found In the proceedings of the trial court the ciise Is reversed and the defendant is en titled to another trial Why shouldnt the state have the same right of appeal where some substantial error prejudicial to the state exists In the proceedings con nected with the trial Another Judge should be allowed to sum up the evidence as in England and ns In our own federal courts Under the present situation a district court judge dare not comment on the evidence These are some of the outstanding faults as observed in the proceedings of the local courts that contribute to the difficulty of prosecuting criminals They sur round the defendant with a wall of safety that makes It all but impossible for the state to prosecute and thus tends to foster crime and law A N A GREAT ACTOR PASSES OBBRT BRUCE MANTELL Is dead and the world goes on with no maudlin no glycerine j tears no sentimental sobsister stories to mar the dignity ot his passing A genuine artist is gone Our fathers remember per haps better than we do the magic of his name displayed before theaters the world over He was the last of the great last of the old clan to carry Wil liam Shakespeares works to the speaking stage At 71 Robert Bruce Mantell had been an actor more than a half century And most ot that vigorous life of bis he gave to the memory of the great Briton Men of 60 remember seeing him when they were boys playing Ithen as now the heroic roles of Hamlet Macbeth Bru tus and all the rest Years ago he must have been a j perfect man in those great scenes and even with his grayed hair his shorter stature and his aging face he was still vigor his marvelous voice and his theatrical genius carried him on It is easy to become maudlin over the passing of the j great and even of those who have reached only the rim of greatness The Innate dignity of Robert Bruce Mantell forestalls that The memory of him will live long with those ot us have seen him even In his Inst year of life WILL THEY MISS IT WEALTHY Long Island man bought a chateau which was built In

Pamphlet What Does Democracy Have Ahead for Claude Bowers Next to Al Smith New York Editor Is King Bee of En tire Party GlobeGazette Correspondent Thinks By CHARLES P STEWART ASHINGTON July Next to Al Smith the democrat ic convention leaves Claude G Bovvers perhaps the outstanding personality In the Jeffersonlan party Whats his next step His own an swor Is Baclt to the mean ing his job ns edi torial writer for the New York Eve ning World May be so Bui It cant be for long After his koy note address at Houston Claude Bowers Is committed Irrevocably to active politics His party cant spare Its foremost orator for any duty except in the forefront In his particular line he Is moat valu able man CLAUDE Is more than an orator Hes an orator He has the trick of putting his Ideas across the microphone Its a new stunt Old timers tore around on the plat form It wont do now Tho speech maker must keep his lips glued to a mechanical device It sucks the life out of the sort of spellbinding we used to know The modern adept at it must be a professional broadcaster and thats what Bowers Is to a Besides he has the goods Broad casting with him Is only a means to an end He is a Patrick Henry up todate equipped to thrill a nation where Pat stirred only a roomful Just what his partyll do with Claude its difficult to say In the olden days hed have been rewarded with the postmaster generalship or some such post as that It doesnt fit his peculiar type of genius which la altogether a new thing Basically Claude is a genius with a wonderful gift of words and of course the foun dation of learning to back it up But that Isnt all There are others as eloquent and aa well informed but they havent the faculty for telling It to the radio and those who do have the faculty havent the thota to ex press nt first hand BOW1SRS would be lost at the head of a governmental department Hut what else Is there to do with him Theres nn portfolio for the dissemi nation of public information by wire less liven it there were Claude isnt adapted to the mere reading off ot mimeographed stuff He manufac tures his own Aa a campaigner there cant be his erjual according to the modern method but when It comes to placing him In ft cabinet post hes a puzzle OF course he can run for office and utilize hla unique tal ent In his own personal behalf His home state of Indiana doubtless would be proud to be represented by him after his triumph the other day Kven so he couldnt make radio speeches in congress all the time and thats what hes especially adapted for Bowers rather forecasts a new type oE statesman a type that can address the nation over a hookup In cluding everything from ocean to ocean and from the Canada line to the gulf in a style that Isnt machine made Just at the present moment hes a political product that Its pretty hard lo classify OTHER EDITORS ARTIFICIAL RESPIRATION DO you know how to revive a drowning person nr one suffering from electric shock or gns poisoning or from

movement In the Methodist General Conference against compulsory military training in schools while inspired by Idealistic motives wo believe overlooks essen tial practical considerations There is not
