Lawyers, the Law and Public Confidence |1| ISN'T hard to understand why the American Bar Association convention at Kansas City had a field day /attacking Roosevelt for his criticisms of the law and lawyers. President has been a bit rotogh with lawyers, on occasion ; tiui about is only fair play. . But the speech of President Robert M. Hutchins of the University of Chicago was a timely warning that the legal profession has a little job of soul-searching to do — a job which can't be evaded by a simple assertion that Mr. Roosevelt is biased and vindictive. | President Hutchins put it up to the lawyers in plain •words: $ "If they continue to accept what is done as the standard ofswhat to do; if they continue to seek large fees under the impression that they are the common good; if legal ethics mean little more than a protective tariff in favor of the bar; if |ve are regarded as the spokesmen of special privilege ; if our chief claim to public admiration is our agility in making thl worse cause appear the better, then we are lost ; then we cahnot hope to make the community accept our moral leadership." I xxx 'HHERE is no use pretending that a great many plain citizens 1* nowadays are not pretty well disillusioned about lawyers. Tills has nothing whatever to do with the Supreme Court j fijrht; it antedates it by a /good many years, and it is due very lalgely to 'the points touched on by President Hutchins. t Our Jaws are made principally by lawyers. They are in- tefpreted by lawyers. When we discover that a certain law ddfes not mean what we had supposed it very clearly did m|an, or that its force is nullified by the existence of gaping loopholes or cleverly legalized non-observance, we know that some lawyer has been at it. \ It is this sort of thing which has led to public disillusion- me'nt. The Bar Association gets nowhere by charging Presi- dept Roosevelt with bias. The charge may be perfectly cor- , but it is beside the point. Self -questioning along the line down by President Hutchins is what is called for. XXX R ERHAPS a good part of the trouble comes because lawyers i and toymen alike have been confused as to whether the practice of law is a profession or a trade. | If it is a profession, it carries with/it certain ethical standards and entails a definite duty to society. Its members are obligated to live up to certain ideals — at the cost, if neces- salry, of. cash in the pocket. If it is a trade, on the other hand, th|n anything goes, and the annual profit-and-loss statement is the only criterion of success. I The best thing the lawyers could do would be to decide once and for all .what sort of league they are operating in. * "As Far As Possible" JAPAN'S reply to the American protest at the bombing of "* Nanking makes interesting reading. After insisting that Japanese bombing raids are directed solely at military ob- jeqtives and are not intended to harm noncombatants, the reply states: * "Japan's policy of respecting as far as possible the lives, property and interests of third powers is unchanged." „. The catch in that pledge, of course, is the little phrase, "a| far as possible." To date there have been dismaying signs that that isn't going to include very much ground. It is hard to think that the world's conscience will ever .approve aerial warfare unless some way is found to confine its damage to strictly military objectives—and unless "as far as possible" takes in a good deal more territory than it has to date. The Family Doctor t M. R«r. T7. 8. Pat. Off.. By lib. MOKU1S FISHBE1N Edlttu, Journal ot the Ameriean Medical Association^ and ol ' Hrgela, the Health Magazine, Worker in Compressed Air Subject to a Strange and and Painful Malady This is the third of a series of articles {n which Or. Morris Fish- boin discusses industrial diseases aud the ways in which the worker's health may be guarded. (No. 344) One of the strangest of all occupational diseases is the so-called compressed air disease, or caisson disease. Since msn have been sinking caissons for Abridges, piers and submarine tun- nelsf, this disease has been a factor. Compressed air is used to keep water or mud out of the place in which the men are at work. The water and mud are "kept out by raising the pressure of air in the workroom to a figure above that of the water or mud which presses against the shell of the workroom. If the'pressure is kept sufficiently high, there is always some outward leakage of Jur rather than leakage of water into the room. Human beings, fiowevtr, are not built to live long under such cnoditions. In fact, they have to be especially prepared to work tinder such conditions even for a short time. For that reason it is customary for the worker to become accustomed to the compressed aid gradually. When a healthy, normal person enters an sir lock or tank in which the pressure is raised, be first notices an effept in his ears. He can overcome this effect by swallowing or by holding his nose and blowing. If he fails to dp this, he may actually have a rupture of the eardrum. Experienced workers protect themselves automatically by swallowing or by holding the nose «nd blowing whenever they are going down into a high-pressure chamber. It has been found that when the pressure rises sufficiently it is impossible to whistle because one cannot blow against the pressure. Furthermore the compression of air makes heat and the worker takes off his clothes as the pressure fises and puts them on again as the pressure falls. When a person is developing compressed air illnss, he gets some symptoms which are far from pleasant. Because of the compression the blood and the tissues of the body dissolve an increased amout of air. When the pressure is suddenly decreased, bubbles of nitrogen can form, cutting off the blood supply from various parts of the bodv. When this occurs the sypmtoms of compressed air illness develop with pain, dizziness, prostration, weakness, painful construction of the chest, difficulty with hearing and sometimes even paralysis. Sometimes these symptoms are mistaken for those of intoxication and workers have died through failure of those near them to recognize what was wrong. For this reason it has been suggested that workers in compressed air should always wear tags stating their occupation and the location of the recompres- sion room so that they may be immediately put in that room and the pressure raised when they suffer serious symptoms. It is known that many of these symptoms can be relieved if the worker will promptly inhale some oxygen, and in many industries arrangements are made to recompress workers promptly and to supply them with oxygen when the condition called caisson diseease occurs. x \ >••• %^ » « <20py*l9ht, }$tt, fjlfiA w»ie« t«i, *^ OAS'S' OF CUAU.VCTEtW i»iuscit.t,.\ i-u:«CK — h?*»t**, yminR 1-rittnnn nllorm-y. .AMY KMHIt—Clll.v'i roommnle Anil nuirili-rcr'fl *lotlm. .mi Ki-wmuAN—«•iiiy's nn-ftcc.

The operator verified that. He could get out and disappear into the subway in 30 seconds. She felt a subtle pleasure at having outwitted Dolan. He was so sure of himself, so positive in his theory. What did it matter to him that he was railroading an innocent man to jail; to the ... to the electric chair! For the first time, Cilly caught the lull significance of what Jim waa toeing. She held her breath as a new terror seized her. Dolan was arresting her. There would be nobody to carry on for Jim . . . iOboiiy to watch the Hunter man, or Harvey Ames . . . nobody to cK*«-k on Carruthers who also can-.<i from Utah. Dolan would forget all that. Suddenly she faced Dolan, her eyes burning with indignation and terror and despair. "Why are you so determined to accuse Jim? What about Harvey Ames? He had every opportunity and just as good a motive. What about Hunter? There are a dozen angles that you refuse to consider." Dolan frowned in annoyance. Dolnn stood In the living room, taking in the situation. "Come in, Mrs. Perry," Cilly urged. "Hello, Mr. Perry. This 'is Sergeant Dolan, from police headquarters. Mr. and Mrs. Perry are my next door neighbors, sergeant," Dolan acknowledged the introduction with a brief nod. "Oh, this is just too horrible for you, my dear," Mrs. Perry went on. "And to have it happen the minute your young mnn was called away. Cilty's eyes widened. Dolan turned his shrewd glance on Mrs. Perry instantly. "How did you know Jim was going away?" Cilly asked her. "Oh, we met him that evening. Didn't we, John?" "When was this?" Dolan asked abruptly. Just about midnight," Mr. NEXT: Women in industry. Perry stated mildly. "Yes, it was exactly midnight." * * * . pILLY'S heart bounded as a new ^ hope dawned. "Just how and where did you meet the young man?" Dolan asked quickly. Mr. Perry seemed a little surprised at the sudden questioning. "We met him two blocks further down, on St. Ann's avenue," he related simply. "You see, we'd stopped in here a little after 11. wasn't it, dear? Miss Pierce had offered to look after our fish while we were away. Mr. Kerrigan and another gentleman were here. . . ." "How did you know which was Kerrigan?" Dolan interrupted. "Why, we had met him before. One Sunday afternoon, we mel him with Miss Pierce down at Jones Beach. We all came home together. So of course when I saw him in such a hurry Sunday night, I was glad to offer him a lift. We'd gotten the car, and had a little bite down in the tavern, and then just as we started off, we saw Mr. Kerrigan, running a hurry he couldn't get a taxi we drove him down to the flyinj Held." "You drove him to Floyd Bennett Field Sunday night?" Dolan repeated incredulously. He snw his carefully prepared case crumbling before him. Mr. and Mrs. Perry nodded simultaneously. "And we got him there Ih 15 minutes," Mr. Perry said with pride. "Kerrigan's friend had just arrived himself. It wns exactly quarter past 12. We waited around until they took off, and then We started for Fall River." * * * ("HLLY could have wept for joy. ^ Jim had been down at Floyd Bennett Field at quarter p»»t 12. Amy was killed at 12:20. There was a lump in her throat as she grabbed Mrs. Perry's hands in both of hers. "Thank rou so much for telling us that," S><e exclaimed. Then, trying to be casual in her explanation, she .ulded: "You know, everybody is under suspicion in a case like thia until an alibi is established." Mrs. Perry nodded smilingly. She did not understand why Mr. Kerrigan, Priscilla's special young man, needed an alibi. But she did not say so. "Well, we'd better take the goldfish and run along," Mr. Perrj suggested. "If there's any way we can help, sergenttf, we'll be right next door. ..." As the door clowd behind the Perrys, Cilly tirned to Sergeant Dolan. She could not hide the were voices in the outer •*- hallway. Cilly recognized them. A second later, her bell rang. "O. K. Answer it," Dolan ordered. CiJy opened the door to admit Mr. and Mrs. Perry, who lived next door in Apartment 1-B. Mrs. Perry, a plump, neighborly little woman, held both hands out to Cilly in a motherly gesture. "You poor dear!" she .murmured "We only heard about it today I'm so terribly, terribly sorry." toward the subway. He seemed in such a hurry. ..." ! 'What time was this?" "Exactly midnight. Remember, Mary, you remarked on it?" "Yes," Mrs. Perry affirmed. "The steeple clock was just striking midnight. I teased Mr. Kerrigan about being in such a hurry to leave Priscilla, and he explained that he had to make a hurried trip out west. He didn't want to wait for trains, and there was a friend of his—a private pilot— who was leaving Floyd Bennett Field at 12:30 for Chicago. Mr. gleam of satisfaction which lighted up her eyes. "Well, sergeant, do you still want to hold me as an accessory?' Dolan slumped into a chair wearily. "I guess not. Their story rang true enough ... and we can always check on it." He looked up at Cilly, smiled a little crookedly. Dolan looked at his watch. "Well, I've got to hustle and check on some of these other angles you've been harping on. If he gets in touch with you again, will you ask him to see me immediately at headquarters? His testimony is still mighty important. . .
