Life History One of the most popular, human and many sided men in British public life was Lord Aiverstone, w.ho died-iu Ills 73rd year, for nearly thirteen years Lord Chief .rustics of England. Tall, athletically modelled and vigor- ous to the tima when his fatal "illness overtook him. he was physically; as mentally, a splendid specimen' of tbo old school of English gentleman. At Cambridge he was perhaps niore famous as an athlete than as arscncu- although his studies were, uot-ne He had a deoldeaij mathc matical hent and was 3nth on list of wranslere though he got only a third in .classics.

His interests in sports he carried 'from Cain-bridge out into the world and his collection of trophies, was an evidence of his great success on-'the cinder track. When he could no long er take part himself he remained a keen patron of every class of sport and until his 70th year thusiastic -rider and a good hand at golf. His tastes in sport fact visitor to the National Sporting Club, a spectator 'of "the game." He was an enthusiastic cricketer-and for many years was the president of the famous Surrey County Club. His interest in the men, too, was1 keen, as was evidenced at a dinner a few years1 ago of the Sphinx Club. The .-club had down for discussion, 'The Value of .Advertising to Sport. Lord Alverstoup was the guest of honor and Tominy. Burps, then weight champion of the world, was one of the principal speakers.

His interest in sport, too, helped him throw' off the cares his when the day's work had been done. It is recalled that just after Sentencing. Doctor Crippen, the Am- erican dentist, to death for the mur- der of his wife, the Lord Chief Jus- tice drove to watch the conclusion ot" a billiard contest for the champion- ship, of England-between Inmah and Stevenson.
