Law Is Called
Poor Living In
Prof. Tracy Discourages
'Easy Money' Idea Of
Legal Profession

Cummings, Norman Disagree Over Decision

Students who are interested in lawa
only as a means of earning a living
were advised to stay out of the pro-
fesion by Prof. John E. Tracy of the
Law School in his radio talk yester-
day on the Vocational Guidance Ser-
ies over Station WJR broadcast from
the campus studios in Morris Hall.
"You can earn a much better liv-
ing at something else," Professor
Tracy emphasized.
"But," he said, "if you really have!
a good mind, if you are willing to
work hard to acquire a good legal
education, if you are willing to under-!
go the struggles and disappointments
that involve trying -to obtain a foot-
hold in practice, if you feel that you
would rather practice law at half thef
income than to do anything else!
which you can imagine, we of the
profession welcome you to become a
student of the law and eventually to
become a member of our ancient and
honorable profession."
According to Professor Tracy, thereI
are about 40,000 students in the law1
schools of the country, of which there
is only room for about 5,000 eachI
year. He stressed the fact that there
is a place for only the best.
With the coming of diversified dut-
ies for lawyers, Professor Tracy said
that there is a necessity for varied!
qualifications. A good education is
demanded of a lawyer. "It is true,"
he said, "that Abraham Lincoln be-
came a great lawyer without such
education, but he did not live in
America in the year 1935 when com-
petition is so keen that there is room
in the profession only for those who
are not only able butare thoroughly
trained and prepared."
Professor Tracy told young women
who are contemplating entering the
study of law to stay out of the profes-
sidn, if they have independent means
or have parents. with means . "If the
young woman," he said, "is interested
in the law as an intellectual pursuit
without it being necessary for her to
earn a living at it, I see no reason why
she should not do what she most
wants to do. If, however, she plans
on taking up the law as a career at
which she must make her living, I
must advise that the odds against
her are too great for the average
woman to succeed

License Plate
Sale Is Going
Briskly Here
The sale of automobile licenses in
the offices of the Chamber of Com-
merce is proceeding at a brisk rate,
according to officials in charge of the
The deadline for buying 1935 plates
is the twenty-eighth of this month,
and this no doubt explains the good
business being done, officials said.
Contrary to expectations, car own-
ers are buying more plates than stick-
ers, the ratio being something like
300 to 70. The "stickers" are good
only until Aug. 1, while the plates, of
course, may be used all year. It is
thought that this may be the reason
for more plates being sold. Car own-
ers do not want to bother with the
buying of license plates more than
once a year.
The hours during which licenses
may be purchased are from 9 a.m. to
12 and from 1 to 4:30 p.m. on week
days and from 9 a.m. to 3 p.m. on
