DEATH TAKES JUSTICE
OF TSTAT HIGH COURT
SUELYAT ADRDIAN
JHN E. BIRD PASSES AAY;
AFTER BRIEF ILLNESS
WEAKENS REISTANCE
WAS PROMINENT IN STATE
Jurst Stricken Unexpectedly, 1octors
Say Deathi Caused By Suddei
Heart Attack
(By Associated Press.)
ADRIAN, Feb. 10.-John E. Bird,
justice of the Michigan supreme court,
former chief justice and former at-
torney general of Michigan, died early
today at his home in Adrian.
Justice Bird's death was sudden and
was caused by a heart attack, his
physician, Dr. 0. Whitney, reported.
He had been undergoing treatment for
several weeks and had not been feel-
ing well, but was able to be at his law
office here every day. Death came at
12:45 o'clock.
Justice Bird maintained an office
in Adrian in partnership with Judge
J. N, Sampson of the Lenawee circuit
court. Although the two carried on
no active extral egal duties, theyj
maintained the office as a place to
carry on their regular activities, and
Justice Bird, whenever. he was not in
Lansing, was seen daily in his Adrian
office.
The justice is iurvived by his widow
and three children, Everett Bird of
Detroit, Maj. Bird, asistant prosecut-
ing attorney of Lenawee county, and
Miss Gertrude Bird, at home. Funeral
arrangements were to be made later
today.
Elected Three Times
John E. Bird was one of the few
chiefs of the state's department of
justice to be three times elected at-
torney general of Michigan. He came
to that office in 1904, while engaged in
private practice in Lenawee county,
and was re-elected in 1906 and in 1908.
It was while serving his third term
that he was appointed to the state su-
preme bench by Gov. Fred M. Warner
to fill the unexpired term of Justice
Robert Montgomery, who resigned.
This wa's in the summer of 1910 and
the appointment was confirmed at the
polls the following November. He
was re-elected for the full eight-year
term at the spring election of 1911
and again re-elected in 1919.
Served Convention
The constitutional convention of
1908 occurred during Bird's term as
attorney general and upon him de-
volved the task of fitting many of the
laws of the succeeding sessions ofthe
legislature to the new constitutional
provision's. His tservices to the state
covered the period in the history of
Michigan when the state undertook to
deal with the railroad corporations.
FORESTERS ADOPT
CRUISING jJACKET
The foresters of the School of For-
estry and Conservation have adopted
"a uniform cruising jacket as the of- "
ficial emblem of their school. These
jackets will be worn in addition to the
red hats now in use.
Finding that the hat alone was in-
adequate, the Forestry club some time
ago decided on the wearing of jackets,
forest service green in color, to offer
a contrast to the hat. The green is
really a dark olive drab.
The color chosen is the official col-
or of the UnitedStates forest service
which gathers large recruits from
among Michigan graduates. In addi-
tion to the jacket, an official design
of a two-bladed .axe on a yellow and
blue "M" will be worn over the heart.
The coat as it stands has 16 pockets,
all designed to meet the specific needs

of foresters. The shoulders and
sleeves of the jacket are reenforced
by double thickness, both for warmth
and waterproofness. The pockets are
of every shape, from little ones to ac-
commodate pencils to big ones large
enough to carry tally-whackers, note-I
books, axes, and other implements
which foresters use. The material
used in its construction has been
waterproofed according to govern-
ment specifications. The dark-gray
forest green otfers a decided contrast
to the flaming red of their forester's
little felt hats.
