Prof. Burke Shartel, of the Law

In the current artcle, he con-
siders the judicial appointment of

Prof. Earl C. Arnold, of George
Washington university, in this

of rates charged by surety compan-
ies, presenting a comparison of in-

the amount of control a state may

to the power to amend other than
those stated by the framers of the
Constitution, pointing out that
since there are specific limitations,
it was intended that the ,amending
power should be liberal.

Judge Victor H. Lane, discusses the
