" . < - A sweeping reorganization of the state's court system Is proposed in a.plft'v submitted to the Arkansas Bar Association by Lamar Williamson, Montfcello, IU retiring, president. The plan was drawn up by Glenn R. Winters, Ann Arbor. Michigan, secretary-treasurer of the American Judicature Society, at Mr. Williamson's request. It is based on experience with Improved court systems In oilier slates, and on the Ideas of distinguished men In the legal fraternity. The purpose of the plan is to Insure speedier and more certain Justice. To gain this end, ni; judges would be appointed from lists of qualified and properly trained nominees, it Is explained. Fewer cases would be appealed, we are told, with a consequent saving of lime and money on that score. Other savings are also foreseen. All existing courts would be merged into one court, except for the county courts. They would be given another name, and continue to function as they do HOW. The one court would have two divisions—a trial division, and an appellate, . or apiwnl, division, At the head of the system would be R Judicial Council, consisting of four judges named by jurists of Hie state, four lawyers selected by the liar Association, and two laymen .appointed by the governor. Presiding over this council anrt the other machinery of Ihc court would be u chief Justice, named by Ihe governor with the senate's approval. He would appoint Judges from nominations by the council. The judges would all be of equal standing. They would hold trial courts wherever needed, as circuit courts are held now, and three-judge appeal courts, corresponding to the present supreme court, in Little liock, and elsewhere, If deemed necessary. Decisions of one appeal coin would be binding on Ihc oilier, or others. The voters would decide at regular Intervals whether (he appointed judges would remain In office. In addition to the Judicial Council, there, would be an Administrative Council of eight Iriol judges and two appeal Judges, to assign Judges and supervise all court business. And there' v would be a Judicial Conference, made up of ' Ihc judges of Ihe state, and a compulsory' bar . association, of all lawyers. These would be for -the pur|X>sc of Integrating the whole system,and bringing it under the oversight and control of the chief justice and the .Judicial Council. A constllutional amendment would be required to Creole the system. Meanwhile, a committee ot the Bar Associallon will study the plan. We should keep ppen minds on Ihc proposal, wlille it is being examined and discussed. There should be-no final Judgment, fill Nmuch more Is known about it. Our present court 'system is cumbersome and faulty. That must be admitted. But It has many virtues, too. The problem, In any changes which may l>e made, Is to preserve the best of what we have, while taking care that changes will give us better procedures for those thrown aside. —ARKANSAS DEMOCRAT.

"Can HOLLYWOOD, May 15.<NEA) — As a film director, Curtis Bernhardt will take on any Hollywood star at 40 paces, temperament or no temperament, and come out the winner. He's especially good at directing women, such as In Ihe five- ring circus that was "Devotion." But there are five people Bernhardt admits he would never direct in a picture. "I'm not that brave," he whispered. Tli e five are George Bernard Shaw, Dall, Gloria Vanderbllt, 'nig- ger the horse, and a Quiz Kid. Bcrnhardt's reasons: "I could never direct George Bernard Shaw because he's too wise and too ready with a castic tongue. On e of us would have a nervous breakdown, and I think it would be me. "I couldn't take on Dali because he's too — well, too Dall. I'm afraid he wouldn't understand us. He'd think we're screwy." , "Gloria Vanderbilt," he said, "is too rich for me and this business. The lo »B hours and exacting standards of motion pictures would never go with her bank balance and background." Bernhardt disposed of Trigger and a Quiz Klrt quickly. "I'm just plain poison to animals. "I hear Quiz Kids are nice, but when I direct a picture I want lo know all the answers."

Dnvies reinstalcd as senior vice president or Standard Oil of California. It's worth a little rehash, for several reasons. The whole story hasn't been told, and the record needs lo be set straight, ekes, In trying to pour troubled ater on Standard Oil, diet l)i;j riends more harm than good. Th e story begins back in June. I 941, when Davies came to Wash- ngton, at President Roosevelt's re- uest. t'i co-ordinate ttie oil indua- ry wlFn the national defense cf- ort There was an immediate hov.'l rom the New Dealers, who claimed hat a Rockefeller viper was being aken intij the bosom of government, and that no good would come of it. Davies was to get $10,000 a year n government salary, and Standard of California was to kick in S-n.COi) more ; to : make the T t57,000' which lie had been getting as senior vice president of the company. That wasn't too good an-.arrangement, but if the general management of Standard of California had expected to receive special favors because one of its men was directing government oil policies, it soon found out it had another think coming. DAVIES PASSED STANDARD'S AFFAIRS TO ICKES Tile word soon got back lo California that Davies had said his o!< company was no different from am other, and. if It wasn't in the war crack down on it. Actually. Davi refused to handle any matter pc tainlng lo Standard of California.) lut passed all such things on !o j :iarold L.

Ickes got ' to kno v , hij-'s may have arisen belween Collier and Davies personally, the latter still had a certain loyalty to Hie company. He had been with it Since 1912, and had helped build jit up. It was with considerable ifilmm. therefore, that Davis learn- 'cd Ickes had bought 10 shaves of £tock in Standard of California, with obvious intent to inject him- f selj into its management. The result could' only be a feud night well wreck the company. Rather than see anything like that happen, Davies sent in hi resignation as a director and vie president. That stopped Ickes froi making a scene at the stockholder meeting In San Francisco. But i the process Davis hart to sacrilic his job and $57,000 salary. His jo us Deputy Petroleum Administra tor lias folded. He will have month or so in which to organ! the government's new Oil and G Division.
