Rain had fallen most of the ni- •ght before, and part of that morning, and was still falling only an hour before the game. The field was consequently slippery, and the players could find little foothold when it was needed for fast playing. The damp weather also limited the size -of the crowd.

The Academy came close to another touchdown in the fourth quarter;, when Lichter caught a pass for ten yards and Hanson made a 15 yard gain on an end run to the 3-yd. line; but Kelly, trying f or the remaining distance, slipped on the wet ground and tried to crawl on hands and knees, which i was an infraction of the new rules, which make the ball dead whenever the player's knees touch the ground. A 5-yd. penalty was the result, and g°'s ball. after a few plays it was "Fort Dod- In the third quarter the two teams kicked the bajl back and forth in attempts to gain distance, and it was following a kick that Fort Dodge made a threat for a touchdown.

In those twenty.years our law firm was established as you peo* pie know it in this 'locality. In all of those twenty years both of us held different types of office. In order to give you some idea of the partnership I will say that every time either of us received -any compensation for a public address, or a salary for city clerk or county attorney it all went into the firm account. We were partners in the full sense of the word, one having the services of the other so far as our earning capacity was concerned. •Giving you that view of the partnership and the fact that we had a firm account, and that our relations were absolutely joined in ev- nry way; and ..the further fact that there .was never a serious dispute in that firm; I think speaks very well for the make-up of a man like T. P. Harrington. Woried by Court Trials. He was always '• fair. He was a good lawyer. After I briefed a case I always felt that Tim should review it because he was a much better briefer than I was. He would Criticize me for not worrying enough about my cases .and I would criticize him for worrying too much | about his cases. I have known Tim to start into a trial of a case and be woried about till he would geet what he called one of his sick stomach spells and he would not be to finish the trial. 'But that only shows the thoroughness of the man. When it came to the drainage matters I think his record is outstanding so far as drainage matters were concerned.'I know, pf no' one that had a better standing with the big bond houses of this country so far as a legal opinion on public bonds were concerned than Harrington. That was one of his great accomplishments in which he took , pride. Of course, while we were associated together we both married and both" began raising families, .and onr associations were the clo- ~ i st all along the line. Memorized Early Speeches. Harrington was always,keen to see that the interests of his client was absolutely protected and yet fair in his negotiations: As a matter of fact, I think Harrington's life is really a good example of a boy that was raised on the farm, He was (born at New Diggings, Wis: I drifted over into Iowa, went I through those early arduous experiences and yet always looked forward to better things. He could quote Shakespeare and Rive more accurate facts, as Judge Quarton has referred to, on historical pvnts thrm any man I ever knew. But to show you the persis- t"nop. .of the -fellow and the th'o- rouhness with which he entered into his work, he was making a speech bfforp. he went to law school and he committed that speech to memory, more than three thousand words, and delivered it verbatim. I couldn't have done that under any circumstances whatsoever. For a number of years when he made a public speech he used to commit most of it to memory. To me that was an accomplishment that very few men can ever acquire. Strong «n Legal Knowledge. - Commuting things to memory after one gets out into life, and after one has reached the age of maturity, is a tremendous difficult task mat memory is one of the things that served him well in handling m«^!f»t C ? SeS> ,? a ' ways seeme d to me mat I could always forget morp law in the shortest time than any member of the bar; but Harrih? ton could retain more law and rl am it longer, and know the detailed statement of the law. That was his strong forte. • I n! Vant to say that * J w ' n in f»ll bar L** sT01 " tions Presented to this par, and I know that T.
