Three Ways to Prevent Release, of Guilty Quo of llio thitiK.s which the last year brought us was a new iiHUiulo toward our crime problem. We arc no longer discournKGd about it, or . reiuly to iuhnit thai the problem is insoluble. Some of on i- notorious lawbreakers lire under the ground niul some of them are behind the bars, mid u-c uro beginning to see tluit putting them there isn't an impossible job, after all. Nevfilheles.s, our machinery Cor dealing with criminals needs ovcrhftul- injr; and one of the places that needs "* it the ino4 is tlie courtroom wliere the crook stands' trial. Prof. Mason I/add of the University ol' Iowa ' discussed needed diaii^es in tin- law of evidence before the 32nd annual meeting of the Association .of""'" Ameiieiiii Law Schools,' in Chicago recently. . '.•• ~. There arc ways, says 'Prof. Ladd, by which we can make the conviction of guilty persons, easier without increasing the .hazards''which an innocent man iruist face when ho goes on trial. One of them is by lightening tip thu laws governing an alibi defense. * * « Let us provide, suggcsls Prof. Ladd, that where an accused person plans to ' plead an alibi ho ba required to give notice to the slate's attorney ill-jid- vance of the 'trial. : >, As things stand now, « man being tried in San Francisco win assert that _he was in New York when Uiu crime was committed, and it is practically impossible-,Tor the prosecution • I'o meet his claim when it is sprung suddenly in the middle of trie trial. ]f advance notice wore rotittiral, the state could make the necessary investigation ahead of time and marshal evidence to refute the claim, if the claim were false. Some stales already have such a law; Prof. Ladd suggests that the law should be 'made universal. Then, ho ; continues, tbu stale should be allowed to comment when a prisoner takes advantage of bis constitutional rights and refuses to tcslify. In 02 of our slates the criminal may refuse to testify and the prosecutor may not remark upon it in any way. Surely no innocent man's rights OUT OUR WAY VQiild bo, jegi^ytjiml if tlio stutc wore permitted to draw inferences frpiii suc\i * «. • t • Lastly, Prof. U<U1 urges that crin\-. inal ]a\v be revised lo permit tlie impeachment of one's own witness. As things stand now, a crook may bribe or intimidate the state's star witness so that that witness, on the stand, \vill five testimony contruvy to his former sliite'monls— but Die state cannot ex- that witness Ijrfore the Jury, and the criminal wins by a technicality, Here, (igain, » .simple revision in procedure would make it harder for a, guilty man lo win acquittal. None of these changes would increase the hazards for un innocent num. As Prof. Ladd, Huggeits, they would simply provide a fair trial for the slate as well as for Ibe defense. — lirucc Gallon.
