THURSDAY, MARCH 30, 1939 MASON CITY GLOBE-GAZETTE Pretty Girl Wants to Be 2nd Darrow Young Woman Begins Career as Criminal · Lawyer in New York By 3IARY ELIZABETH PLTOIMER NEW YORK, (ff)--She's 23 and pretty, with curly black hair and a figure a magazine illustrator's model might envy, and what is she going io be? A criminal lawyer! Estelle B. Bai'b, who appeared in general sessions this week to enter a plea in her first murder case said Thursday she's quite serious about it--"I'm determined to be a success at the bar." Won AH but One She has been an attorney eight months, and has won all her jury criminal cases but one; and that was a partial victory. She succeeded in getting two counts of a three-count indictment dismissed. You see a tall, slender girl with big, serious eyes and crimson- tipped fingers, wearing a smart black frock, high heels and the gold key of Philonomic council, a legal honor society. What does'she talk about? Patents, bankruptcy matters, taxation, real estate practice. But she always returns to criminal law. "I don't intend to give up other phases of the law," she said, "but criminal law interests me much more than any other field, because it deals so closely with human lives." Her Early Heroes Her early heroes were the great criminal lawyers, Clarence Darrow, Earl Hogers and Bill Fallon. Her father died when she was three. She's the youngest of six children, and she worked her way through school, teaching piano and elocution, doing clerical jobs and OFJtNSTRUCTION HELD BY ORDER OF RAINBOW, working as a law clerk. She"s been "gainfully employed" since she was 14. She had a "straight A" law school record in St. Lawrence university, Brooklyn; was a bachelor of laws cum laude; a master of laws magna cum laude; became a master of laws at 22, the youngest m New York state last year, and was the first woman ever to attain top honors in her post-graduate school. Passed State Bar She made the "law review" at St. Lawrence; became its secretary one year, earning a salary plus tuition and fees; passed the state bar examination the first time she took it. She wears high heels to court because she always wears high heels^ conducts her case bareheaded: delivers her summation without notes. "I don't expect to win cases because I am a woman," she said, ·'but because I prepare a case thoroughly and try it well. "Does it take courage. No I don't think so. Determination and a desire to be a success at it-yes, but no more than in any-other field. Feels Responsibility Her first client in a murder case is James Pryor, a Negro her own age. She pleaded him innocent. The case will be tried this spring. "Do 3'ou understand the responsibility in defending such a case?" asked the judge. ' : I wouldn't undertake the case," she replied, "unless 1 felt that I could do it justice." --o--GERTRUDE PETERSON" OBSERVES BIRTHDAY Gertrude Peterson was honored at a party on her birthday Wednesday evening at the h o m e , o f Mrs. Irene Rose, 410 Washington avenue northwest.
