FEBRUARY 26 1931 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE i ms? O' /5 a 9i /mitj?' me c IOWAN !A W PROFES LISTS REASONS Economy, Speed and Fairness to Defendant Thot * to Be Promoted. IOWA CITY, Feb. 26.--Economy, speed and fairness to the defendant are prime considerations in the proposed plan making possible the waiver of jury trial in criminal cases except those in which the death sentence may be imposed. Prof. Rollin M. Perkins of the University of Iowa law college has sketched those facts about the proposed change in the Iowa law. After completing a delailed analysis of the situation, he has declared that there is every reason to believe that such a law, making it. optional with the accused person to oe tried either by jury or by court alone, would be held constitutoinal and valid. Enormous sums would be saved if even half of the cases were tried without benefit of jury, Professor Perkins said, for Iowa jurors receive ?3 daily in addition to mileage and criminal trials often lengthen into weeks. Speeding up of the machinery of justice would be accomplished by the waiver plan, for the selection of a jury consumes much time. In many situations when the judge was authorized to try the case, it" would be heard promptly, thereby aiding the defendant who might be unable to obtain release on bail. A judge tried case sometimes is more fair to the prisoner when the crime is such as to arouse repugnance and prejudice in the mindc of .-« JURY IN CRIMINAL TRIALS the jury, such as revolting circumstances or physical or racial characteristics of the defendant, Professor Perkins asserted.

Studebaker -wheel/no. To the motorist thinking of buying a new car now, the attention the entire industry is giving to Free Wheeling means a great deal. Fierce- Arrow and Lincoln, noted for engineering excellence and conservatism, have adopted--intact and unmodified --the same Free Wheeling mechanism that is built into Studcbaker's three great Eights and brilliant new Six. Free Wheeling has captured public interest as thoroughly as it has captured the hitherto wasted power of momentum. Highway commissioners and safety directors throughout the country have driven Free Wheeling Stude- bakers and then voiced approval of Free Wheeling with positive gear control as a new measure of safety to driver and public. In Free Wheeling, for the first time in the history of the automobile, Studcbnker has released momentum and made it serve as an instrument of economy and power. Free Wheeling with positive gear control enables the engine to deliver five miles of travel on four miles of effort. You will do well if you make sure that your new car is a Free Wheeling Studebaker. It will save you substantial amounts on gasoline, oil, tires and repairs. The cars of today that do not offer Free Wheeling are cars of the old order even though theymay be spoken of as new. Base your new car choice on first-hand knowledge--ask your Studebnker dealer to take you Free Wheeling. All Studebaker cars--the President, Commander and Dictator Eights, as well as the. brilliant new \oiv-[ Sludcbakcr Six --have Free Whecling.u'itFi fxuitiuc gear control Sti4dcbaker cars arc prkeJ, f. o. b. factory, from $795 to $2600.
