legal disputes over the meaning of
’the existing forms of pleading.
Most of the States, including In

practiced law. are operating under the
simplified pleading rules. Justice Luh
ring will discuss the reasons under

courts have functioned in States where
they have been in effect for some time|

with the new rules so the transition
from common law pleading can be
accomplished with a minimum of con
fusion.

U. S. HIGHWAY AID
VICTORY MARKED
Representative Cartwright
f Guest of Honor at A. A. A.
Group Luncheon..
Representative Cartwright of Okla
homa was the guest of honor and prin
cipal speaker at a “victory luncheon”
celebrating forthcoming participation
of the District in Federal aid high
way funds held by the District of Co
lumbia Advisory Board of the Ameri
can Automobile Association at the
Willard Hotel yesterday.
Mr. Cartwright, co-author of the
pending Federal aid measure, said the
District's share of approximately
$975,000 would be cut up one-third
as a result of the cut in Federal aid
appropriations made by the Senate.
He said a conference will be held
Monday in an attempt to reach an
agreement on the total amount of
Federal highway expenditures.
Declaring he would rather see a
man working on a highway construc
tion project than accepting relief
checks, Mr. Cartwright said that high
way expenditures were more valuable
than relief expenditures in meeting
unemployment problems.
Russel E. Singer, general manager
of the A. A. A., and J. D Hess, Jr.,
director of the membership depart
ment, reported on increases in mem
bership of the organization.
Mrs. George C. Thorpe, chairman
of the A. A. A. Women's Safety Com
mittee, told of her group's activities
in procuring accident protection for
children of school age. Representa- j

out a solution of Washington’s traffic
problem. John Vandcgrift, vice chair- |
man of the board, presided.
