Jan, 28.—CT)—Two men "till in their twenties are matching- wits with nine seasoned barristers in district court here with a man's life the stake. Spurning offers of outside help, District Attorney Henry Brooks, 24, decided to prosecute. John W. Brady on a murder charge with the assistance of only Hardy Hollers, 28-year-old assistant county attorney. The trial started Jan. 20. Brady is charged with, the killing of Miss Jjchlia Highsmith, capitol stenographer. Across the table arc such figures as Dayton Moses of Fort Worth, who defended J. Frank Morris; Lon Curtis of Belton, one of the best known lawyers of Central Texas, and E. A. Barry of Houston, form- c:' judge of the commission of appeals of the court of criminal, appeals. Judge's K«cord Good. A man who has sat on cither side of the table in numerous 'cases is on the bench. He is J. D. Moore, young as a district judge but possessor of a record for fairness. A little more than a year ago, Judge Moore was district attorney and it fell to him the task of succeeding Dan Moody, in that position. After four years as district, attorney he was elected district judge. He is in his fifties. He had many years experience as a defense counsel before he .was elected prosecutor. Now Henry Brooks, only a short time ago a law student at the University of Texas, is trying to maintain the excellent record set by Moore and Moody. This trial and baptism as he -was an important figure in the prosecution of Congressman Augustus J. McCIos- key, who was acquitted of charges of altering election returns. Prosecutor Young. In the McCloskey trial, however, Brooks had the help of Lamar Sceiigson, Bexar county district attorney, and himself not much over, thirty. In the prosecution of Brady ho is depending for all his assistance on Hollers, who was working his way through the University of Texas law school in the not distant past. Brooks, always keeping hifi own counsel, is a stickler for his ideas even though he Is young. His friends predict he will add further glory to the name left him by his father, the late Victor Brooks, who served as district judge here. Hollers has announced for county attorney In this year's elections. He is hard-working and agreeable. The defense nine might be divided into the regular four and five capable reserves. Barry is directing the- defense and the three others on the firing line are Samuel B. Dickens of Austin and Moses and Curtis. . ". . Advisors Well Known.

Peeler of Austin, former state senator; Julius Dornn/iclcl of Amarillo. former assistant attorney general, and Will Brady of Ventura, California, a brother of the accused. John W. Brady wus associated with Lightfoot and Robertson when he was in the attorney general's department. He practiced with Peeler when, he was a rising young attorney. No slictheh of the men who \vill fight for Brady's acquittal would ho complete without mention of Sam Dickons. Ho is not as famous as some of the other- defense lawyers, but for many years prior to Miss Highsmith's death he was Brady's pal. When the former juclKe was arrested, Dickens went to his side immediately and has stayed there ever since. Dickens is no novice, however, ns he is participating in his sixty-second capital case. M«cs and Curtis probably are the most celebrated criminal lawyers in the trial. Moses is well known in the capital city as a result of his activities as attorney for the Texas and Southwestern Cattle Raisers' association. His home originally was at Burnett and for a time he was district attorney there. Curtis Well Known. , Curtis ha!> taken part in a number of Central Texas murder cases and helped win an acuittal for •Jack Bonncr, tried at Corpus Christl on u. charge of sending a. bomb which killed two persons when it exploded. Dickens, has officcd next door to the courthouse for eighteen years. Curtis is noted' for his ability to cross-examine and the "Big Four" probably will divide the responsibility of direct examination. Light- feet, known for his speaking- brilliance, and Moses, remembered as a man who presents a very practical case, probably will make two of the closing arguments for the defense. Judge Moore, is widely known because a number of state's cases arc filed in his court and he presided at the McCloskey trial. One of the veteran courthouse employes was asked if Judge Moore's enemies admired him. "I can't say that they do." he replied. ''So far as I know he does not have an enemy. He has had plenty of opponents during his long legal career, but no enemies." Merchants Lunch 35c Unanimously Deemed Great Air Hero of 1929 Every day 11 a. m. to 2 p, SANITARY CAFE.
