The it. Pleasant news partly Cloudy these Days Ivor 8�. No a by George e. Sokolsky Lawver clinics physician and surgeons learn their business not Only at College but also in clinics and As assistants to older melt it used to be that most journalists started As printers devils or office boys or copy boys and then worked their Way up through various grades and experience until in their Middle years when they knew something and could restrain their fingers they got a responsible position. Lawyers used to read Law in the offices of their elders and Learned the Law business by practice and experience As Well As by Reading the Book. That is before the Case system was discovered. Along comes judge Robert s. Marx professor of Law in the University of Cincinnati and asks some questions about this training. He says practical aspect of the Proult in confronting the Law student is that it will be several years alter graduation before he will be called upon to argue cases in an appellate court. His first experience will be in the trial court. Here the Law is usually reasonably Lear and Well settled. On the other hand the facts in the trial court Are not agreed or assumed but Are always in controversy. Hence the Success or failure of the Young lawyer depends upon the care and Diligence with which he ii is gathered and assembled the facts and the evidence the majority of our Law schools have done Little to give a realistic education to the Young lawyer in this All important Field of getting the facts marshalling the evidence and trying the Case to a court or jury.

Dismiss Appeal of Triplett Washington up the supreme court dismissed today the Appeal of Ernest Triplett now serving a lilt term for the murder of Jimmy Bremmer 8, Sioux City. Iowa. The court said in a Brief order that the Appeal should never have first place heard last of the Law similar to tile experience which medical students receive in medical laboratories and this is very True. Fact gathering and fact finding Are difficult ordeals. I acts Are elusive. For instance i know of a person whose statement of facts i occasionally have to Check. Whereas there is always a basis for what he says nothing is precisely so. Most often he reports plausible rumours. Sometimes. He become conscious of his Lack of precise data and feeling obliged always to say something when called upon he employs ingenuity. But ingenuity does not establish a fact. The Middle of the 19th Century was characterized by a compulsive search for facts. As a result there was a vast accumulation of detailed knowledge in every Field which scientists particularly the germans classified and catalogued and indexed.
