Mr. Darrow's defense of Leopold and Loeb, Chicago thrill win'' 8 ' f ?Y 1 thc Masslcs - Hawaii, as uol as his work in the great evolution trial in Tennessee a'.few years ago served as a finale to a career > lawyer already famous for more ian 20 years. Mr. Darrow, admittedly one of the )C3t defense attorneys in the world, is an agnostic, and he has many tmipB been severely censored for non religious views. His caustic question ng of William Jennings Bryan In the "evolution" trial was heralded as an example of reason applied to biblical lore. In the hook, extracts from which Mr. Clirischillcs read, Darrow explains and defends his beliefs, or, rather, lack of beliefs. He also gives several chapters to the discussion of crime and its causes, and why he chose during his entire legal life to defend the under dog. Darrow believes crime Is always an effect from cause, usually social In origin, and that till the less financially able can have the pleasures and possessions of the rich there will always be many whose desires will drive them to crime. The breaking- down of criminals is an effect of mental or physical defects for which the unfortunates are not morally responsible. It is this theory that Mr. Darrow has worked on in his defenses of criminals, particularly criminals w,ho are charged with first-degree murder and are facing death. •Following the talk by Mr. Chris- chllles, T. P. Harrington recalled that some 30 years ago Darrow appeared in a case in the Kossuth district court. The judge disposed of the case in which Mr. Darrow was interested, but a divorce case came on in which a minister was charged with misconduct, and Mr. Darrow expressed a desire to enter the case to aid the defendant.
