MCGUIRE CHICAGO (AP) — It's difficult to tell a law student in Nairobi, Djakarta or Bogota how the American legal system works — but some lawyers are trying. Through Lawbooks USA, the lawyers have in seven months distributed 1,250 free packets containing eight paperback books that explain American legal philosophy. Lawbooks USA is * specialized offshoot of the Books USA program, and is run by lawyers to acquaint emerging nations with American concepts of jurisprudence. The books make it possible for students in Kenya, Indonesia, Colombia .and 23 other countries to study tHe thoughts of such noted judges as Benjamin N. Cardozoj Louis D. Brandeis and Learned Hand. Scott Hodes of Chicago, national chairman of the program, says the $8 it costs tossend each packet abroad is "a small price to pay for helping to keep the human spirit unshackled and the desire for freedom alive. Although the program was conceived by Edward R. Murrow, former director of the U.S. Information Agency, Lawbooks USA is a private organization, and the USIA personnel only transports the books. to law schools, where the dean and faculty distribute them to students. "We try to get apart from the ordinary U.S. propaganda'pro- gram," Hodes said. "In each packet we include a card with the donor's name, and we ask the recipient to acknowledge the gift and ask any question he may have about the books." Hodes said he hopes eventually to reach 125,000 students. The eight books, chosen from 550 paperbacks, "best explain our legal philosophy, and are the finest and easiest to understand," Hodes said. All are written in English. "We are trying to reach the opinion makers," Hodes said, "and English is practically a second language among them." Murrow asked Hodes to head the organization when Hodes,' 27, was chairman of the younger lawyers' section of the Federal Bar Association, a 12,000-member group of lawyers who work for the government or practice extensively in federal courts. Since .its inception, Lawbooks USA has set up local branches in Arizona, Hawaii, Indiana, Iowa, Maryland, Michigan, Minnesota, Missouri, Nebraska and the District of Columbia. Hodes returned to private practice with a Chicago law firm a month ago after serving three years in the Army Judge Advocate General's Corps. Prosperous year seen for Europe By RICHARD K. O'MALUEY PARIS (AP) — Western Europe goes into the new year economically prosperous, with unemployment well down and prospects good for a thriving future. France, riding a boom, may be due for some patchy spots with -lagging auto and textile production, and the likelihood of more strikes from workers demanding more pay. Over-all, however, the economic outlook is good. West Germany is setting new records in production, and Italy shows signs of emerging from a serious economic slump. Little Belgium has its problems with a marked slowdown in industrial activity and a fight against inflation. She is shoring up, however, and confidence is -solid that Belgian know-how will always be needed in the Congo. Two items to watch are the proposals for an Allied nuclear defense force and the Common Market. French President Charles dc Gaulle will oppose any project as long as nuclear control remains in American hands. He wants a European Europe free of what he calls "American hegemony." His critics suggest he wants to substitute Frenqh hegemony. Beth the nuclear force proposal and the Common- Market have strained the Franco-German cooperation treaty, and the C6mmor. Market because of difficulties over fixing a common grain price. This latter problem was resolved in mid-December, but other troubles lie ahead. One often troubled area is quiet for the time being. Berlin, sore point in the cold war, had a relatively peaceful 1964 and at present writing no serious trou blc is cxpucted.
