Washington, Feb. 7. —Judicial ex
perience, contrary to general opinion,
is not a prerequisite to service on
the Supreme Court of the United
A majority of the judges now serv
ing on the Supreme Court, in fact,
never sat behind the bar until they
donned the robes of associate jus
tices on the nation's highest tribun-
Tliis practice of picking men with
out former judicial experience has
increased in recent years.
Whereas 10 years ago all hut one
of the members of the court had
seen previous service on subordinate
benches, today only four of the nine
won their appointments by way *of
Of the last seven appointments to
the court, five were of men who had
never before qualified for the title
This increasing tendency to pick
for the highest court legal luminaries
who have made their records off the
bench is emphasized by the appoint
ment of Harlan F. Stone to fill the
seat vacated by former Justice Mc-
Stone’s appointment turns the ma- I
jority on the court to the side of the I
lay lawyers, making the fifth nicm- !
her who jumped from pleader to as- ,
sociate justice, as against four mem- '
hers who worked their way up
through lower courts.
Others in this group, who first
donned judicial robes as members!
of the highest court, are Mcßey
nolds, Brandeis, Sutherland and But
The four who served time on
lower courts ami reached the Su
preme Court by way of judicial pro
motion are Chief Justice Taft and
Associate Justice Holmes, Van De
vanter and Sanford.
Whatever else may be the result
of Stone's appointment, one thing j
seems sure. He will bring new vi
gor and force to its physical make- :
Stone is still famous at Amherst
as the most stalwart center rush
in that college’s football history. I
Unlike Chief Justice Taft, who
has bulk without muscular force.
Stone has hulk plus muscle. His
broad shoulders and barrel-like chest
aren’t pmtded with fat. As he walks,
he swings along in a loose, power
ful stride like an amiable mastodon.
There seems to be no effort be
hind the stride, but —try to stop
him. His mere physical momentum
There always seems to be some
senator who keeps a diary. In the
present Senate it is Henry Ashurst
of Arizona. Some day Ashurst’s
daily chronicles of the doings in the
upper house may fill in many miss
ing links in the chain of history.
Back in the first Senate, under
President Washington, William Mc
clay of Pennsylvania wrote daily
dozen lines to record interesting
phases of official life.
Since the season of official din
ners is now on in Washington, it
may be interesting to note what
Maelay wrote in his diary about a
presidential dinner in Washington's
“Went to the president’s to din
ner,” he wrote, under date of Aug.
27, “The president and Mrs,
Washington sat opposite to each oth
er in the middle of the table; the two
secretaries, one at each end. It
was a great dinner, and the best
of the kind I was ever at. The
room, however, was disagreeably
“First was the soup; fish roasted
and boiled; meats, gammon, fowls,
etc. This was the dinner. The mid
dle of the table was garnished in a
tasty way with small images, flowers,

National House of Represent
atives Passes Bill
Washington, Feb. 7. —The house
bill authorizing appropriations of
$150,000,000 for road construction
and $10,000,000 for forest road im
provements in the next two fiscal
years upon expenditure of like sum
by states affected, was passed late
yesterday by the senate.
The bill, which was passed by a
vote of 66 to 5, would divide the ap
propriations equally between the
next two fiscal years. It merely
makes provision for carrying on work
similarly authorized in past years
under the good roads act passed in
1016, and the appropriations are the
same as heretofore.
Opposition to the bill was voiced
by some eastern senators, who cop?
tended it constituted an invasion, of
state rights, but an amendment by'
Senator Reed, Republican, Pennsyl
vania, to reduce the appropriation to
$60,000,000 next year and $50,000,000
the following year was rejected,*®!*
