Then he reminded them what a serious thing It Is. But It didn't bother one towheaded youngster sitting In the window. He gnzert around the room and yawned. .Then on Impulse he kissed his mother on the cheek. She was sort of flustered.

They even leaned over the shoulder of the supreme court clerk as he signed his name to mama's certificate. , Her husband, Albert, watched the fjbning, . too. He has his own law *6nice In Kansas city where his wife will got to work with him. Most of 'the new lawyers plan to work in an established law office for a few years. Generally, they've already got their jo'.ie. That helps, In these times. Edward Francis Ayiwarrt of Kansas city laughed and allowed he would go to work in his father's office and "probably give him fits. His father is George Alyward.
