Trofesnor Unna. of Germany, and

the hair follicles, in time causing the

"I don't think so. either.' said the
judge. "I am proud of the lawyers of
'llinois and f'hicago as a whole, but
there are seme who need close watch
ing. If the s'r.te's attorney has a man
present at default divorces many
fraudulent cases will be stopped at the
outset. There is a woman in this
room who was thp victim of collusion
in a 1 as.e. The same attorney w ho con- J
ducted her case was one who had ob- !
tained several divorces for one man. :
who testified in a ease here two weeks j
auo. The man wanted a woman to get
a divorce so he could marry her him- j
self. H had been married five times."
I oe victim me juage spoke 01 p i
Mrs. Hannah Randall, divorced by her;
ht'sband when her attorney refused to
question witnesses or have anything to
do with the case. She had not enough
money to engage another attorney.
"I uncovered just such a case the
other day by a chance question." add
ed .Judge Pam "I am not criticising
the lawyer, hut it shows that he was
intent upon his small fee rather than
i attempting to learn th facts of the

i to cover them."
"Well, we are going to fight thio

"The lawyers need watching, but
the lit gams need it more," declared
Judge Kavanagh. "They won't com?
