Spaks On Relationship Between
Legal Systems And
"Legal systems are not wholly
consistent with morality," said
Dean Henry M. Bates, of the Law
school, at the sixth of a. series of
canpus forums sponsored by the
Student Christian association.
"However, there is a necessary re-
lationship between law and morals
in any system' of law that possibly
could endure."
legal systems cannot be identical
with morality for two reasons;,
Dean Bates pointed out. "First, in
many lavws there is no question of i
right or wrong. Method, not1
ethic, is the subject of the law.
The principle of 'Keep to the
Right' doesnot consider right or
wrong at. all, but it is none the
less necessary. The second reason
is that many of the latest and sub-
tiest conceptions of right arid
wrong are not enforceable, and in
many cases pialic opinion has not
fially decid on the matter. For'
instance, if ~a' able-bodied swim-
mer were to stand on the bank of;
a stream and Watch a man drown
without. offerin to save him, he
would be coMmnitting an immoral
act, but there is no possible law
that could force the mian to act
di fferently."
"There is nothing t support the.
view /that a law should not be
obeyed ibecause it is a mistake or
because one does not agree' with
it. Even a' burglar does not agreej
with the law that is supposed tol
control him. Very often, a law
runs counter to one's conscience.
The fugitive slave laws before the
Civil war were. an example of this,
when many Northerners violated
the law because of the dictates of
their conscience. If I had been on
the earth then, I probably would
have done the same thing."
Dean Bates commented on the
recent student riots at the thea-
tres. "Some of the letters to The
Daily ought to be preserved as
evidence of a badly distorted sense
of morality ahd of the need for ad-
justment on a heroic scale," he

In answer to the challenge of J. J.
Roberts of Columbia, S. D., as printed
in the Minneapolis Journal dated Sun-
day, September 2nd, I have smokedI
Edgeworth for twenty-three (23) years
and for two' years previous to that
time I smoked Qboid, which, I believe,
is manufactured by your firm.
During this time I have smoked at
least one can each day; apd to verify
this statement you may address the
C & C Cafe of this city,' where I make
my tobacco purchases.
It may be interesting to know that
my purchases of Edgeworth duringj
this period have totaled more than
8395 (eight thousand three hundred
penditure of more than $1259.(twelve
hundred fifty-nine dollars).
I have never smoked any other
brand of tobacco.but Edgeworth dr-
ing the twenty-three years.
