WHITFIELD SPENDS 30 YEARS ON COURT BENCH SEVENTY - THREE - YEAR-OLD JUSTICE LOOKS BACK OVER LONG PERIOD OF HIS VA RIOUS ACTIVITIES 1 A ■ - S , :/■ (By A naoriated I’reas) TALLAHASSEE, Fla., Feb. 15. —James Bryan Whitfield celebrat ed 30 years on the supreme court bench today with the observation “this is the young man’s age— and Florida is the young man’s state.” Surrounded by the law books he has studied for so many years, the 73-year-old justice looked backward along the road of time and counted up 45 years in the public service of his state. Before his appointment as jus tice of the court on Feb. 15, 1904, he served as Leon county judge (Tallahassee), clerk of the su preme court, state treasurer and state attorney general. With sparkling eyes and ready smile, he answered questions to day about his years on the bench. “Young Man’* Age” “This is the young man’s age and Florida is the young man’s: state,” he said in reply to a ques tion whether the law is a good field of opportunity for young men of today, “For the young man who has the ability and the determination, the law, more than ever, offers great opportunity. There is more important litigation than when I was admitted to the bar. The field is fertile—but the same is true of the other professions. “Public and private life offer unequalled opportunities to youth. We have a youthful president, a youthful governor, a youthful chief justice of this court. Youth holds the reins. This is the young man’s age.” Members of the court, joined by Governor Dave Sholtz and his cabinet, and representatives of county bar associations through out the state, gathered at the su preme court this afternoon in a surprise testimonial demonstration honoring Justice Whitfield's re cord of lopg service. Only one other justice, in the history of Florida, has served as much as 30 years on the su preme court. He was Justice R. Fenwick Taylor, who retired in 1925 after 34 years. When Justice Whitfield was ap pointed, the justices, in addition to Justice Taylor, were R. S. Cock rell. T. M. Shackleford, Sr., W. A. Hocker, and F. B. Carter, Sr. Jus tice Whitfield succeeded Justice E. C. Maxwell, who resigned. No Typewriters “There were no typewriters here then,” said the genial justice who has written thousands of opin ions. “We had to write everything in long hand.” He still writes his opinions in long hand and then turns them over to a stenographer to be typed. Justice Whitfield served as chief justice of the supreme court in 1905 and again in 1909. He was born on a plantation in Wayne county. North Carolina, on Nov. 8, 1860, later moving to Leon county with his father. He studied at the West Florida Semi nary, and is a graduate in law of the University of Florida.
