The supreme court of Californi
anamiously upheld the constitutionali
ty of the law under which William Ed
ward Hickman was tried and sentenc
ed hang for the murder of Maria
Parker, 12 year old Los Angeles girl
In sustaining the trial, the opinio
held that in pleading "not guilty b
reason of insanity," he had not bee
denied his rights as a defendant, bu
that in so pleading he had admitte
commission of the acts alleged but
denied responsibility for them. Th
opinion also held that a person charg
ed with a crime~ is presumed to b
sane until the contrary is establishe
by a preponderance of evidence an
that the "present statute," unde
which Hickman was tried, "does no
take away the defense of insanity
and the proceedure followed in no
wise changed or affected the rule re
specting the burden which rests on
the prosecution and on the defense in
his case."
Hickman's attorney announced im-
mediately after the decision had been
handed down that he would carry the
case to the supreme court of the Unit-
ed States where his appeal would be
based on the clause of the fourteenth
amendment to the Constitution which
provides trial by "due process of law"
and "equal protection" to all defend-
It has been held that the "due pro-
cess" clause means that the trial must
be held under the process of law
which is common and satisfactory to
the community in which the trial is
held. In California the statutes under
which the trial was held are upheld
as constitutional and are part of the
code under which trials in that state
are held.
Time enough ha passed since the
trial was held so that public opinion
has abated in violence and it seems
logical to believe that the judges of
the court were prompted in their de-
cision only by the facts of law. It is
a victory for justice in that state at
least. It remains to be seen whether
or not it will remain a conplete vic-
tory, buit in either ease it remains tha.t
California has set for those states in
which a more lax legal proceedure
prevails, an example for meting out
justice in an unbiased manner in ac-
c:rdance with the letter of the law
interpreted in its fairest sense.
According to authentic newspaper
reports Charles Evans Hughes will
be invited to become a member of
the World Court ;for International
Justice, as a result of the resignation
C Jaohn Balssett Moore. Athough
no definite word as to the accep-
tance of such an election has been
stated by Mr. Hughes, who is now
touring through Europe, it has been
reported that he will accept. !
It is commendable that the repre-
sentatives of such countries as Cuba,
Brazil, and Japan have taken: the In-
itiative in trying to secure the elec-
tion of Mr. Hughes to membership
on the court. The term of his mem-

bership on the court would be for l
a period of two years, which is the
time remaining on Mr. Moore% term.!
Mr. Hughes' addition to the per-
sonnel o* the Wbrld Court would
add weight and prestige to the ac-

tivities of the court. His depth of
understand ing of present internation-Aj
Eal conditions, coupled with his re- A T D R L

the important position to which he
will likely be called.
Much of the 'success of the World -
fCourt nturally fiepkknds &pon the
- personalities that go to make up its
membership. This is true with al- I
most any judicial tribunal. Thus far,
f although the accomplishments of the
Court have not been of such a type,
as to cause world-wide discussion to
any great degree, the field of its fu-
inture activity presents a vast area for
k fruitful cultivation. Mr. Hughes' mem-
k bership on the Court would prove of
n immense v .lue in this direction.
In view of his resignation from the
o United States Suipreme Court for the
purpose of retiring from public life,
s and since then his refusals to serve
t in public office, it has been expres- .
l ed by some as unlikely that Mr. Hugh-
f es will accept membership on the
f Court if it is offered him. If such be
the case his refusal will not be spon-"
sored by a lack of interest in inter-
national affairs, but more likely will
come about as a result of his age and
'1 inability to take on a task of such
g magnitude in view of the multiplicity
of his other obligations.

regarding his acceptance or rejec-
tion of the seat if it is !offered him,
