V p A bill which will not only be of

I U ° which will be of especial Interest to
the people of Frankfort and Franklin
county Is now in course of prepara
tion Sand will shortly be introduced
T W In the Legislature The plan of the

ffi mat School at Frankfort and to haye
adjunct to the instl
J as the principal
itutlon a State law school which if
t the ideas of those interested in the
K measure are carried out in full will
1be one of the best law schools in the
country In addition to the instruc
tion given by the regular instructors
in the law department it is the plan
M to have each of the Judges of the
V Court of Appeals to deliver two lec
> tures each month which would mean
i a lecture by one of the Judges at least
other day including two lee
A everYother
1 V turcs by the Commissioner of the

I V ings ot toe Kentucky Educational As
sociaton but at that time It had not

r V one seemed to know Just how it could

v the
dropped temporarily Recently
idea was suggested to some of the
prominent Judges and lawyers of the
e > state and several members of the Leg
islature became interested in it It
was explained to them that the stu
v f dents would not only get the advan
Ci tage of the lectures by the Judges of
f the Court of Appeals and the further
t advantago of attending the sessions
Y yof that court but it was also cited
Jjf tee that the student would at some pa
W yrlod of their course be enabled to fol
j1ow the course of the laws of the
C 1State from their inception to their
< enforcement after they have been put
ton the statute books It is urged that
j there is no place in the State so
i suited for such an hiBtftutton as the
t vCapit l of tho State It is also
V claimed by the promoters of the meas
t lure that Frankfort would be an ideal
slt place for 4 State Normal School Not
A yU only rin point of location would it be
advantageOus but the fact that it is
the Capital would make it a popular
1school
j It is understood that the measure
will provide for the use of the Old
t State House buildings for the new in
r stltution thus solving the problem as
I A I t9 what use the historic Old buildtnj
H 1atltutlon
Shall be put to ini the fpture
It is known that several active mem
1 ° hers of the Legislature are Jn favor
t tot such a bill and as it is to be con
mructed along nonpartisan lines it
Us anticipated that it will have the
4 support of both Republicans and Dem
ii i ocrats It has been suggested that
e two members of the Court or Appeals
be asked to draw up the measure
and it is likely that this will be
J
done
