Marshall W. Houts, an alumnus
of Brevard college, has written re
cently the book “From Gun to
Gavel,” published by WiUiam Mor
row and Company of New York.
The book is composed of court
room recollections of James Math
ers, of Oklahoma, as told to Mar
shall Houts. It is an extraordinary
story of a lawyer who started his
practice in 1896, not long after the
first federal courts had been set
up in the wild Oklahoma Territory.
Now close to eighty, Mathers
looks back on his remarkable ca
reer and relates his most memor
able cases. Whether it is murder,
bigamy, or tax evasion, the narra
tor’s honesty and the exciting back-
gi'ound give each event a special
interest and unusual flavor.
Marshall W. Houts was born in
Chattanooga, Tenn., and was edu
cated in North Carolina and at the
University of Minnesota where he
studied law. He was graduated from
Brevard coUege in 1937. During
World War II he was a special ag
ent of the FBI and also served with
the OSS. He was decorated with the
Presidential Unit Citation and the
Bronze Arrowhead, and holds two
After the war he returned to pri
vate law practice in Pipestone,
Minn., served as' a special munici
pal judge, and handled investiga
tions for the Court of Last Resort.
He now lives in Tulsa. Okla., with
his wife pd four children. At the
present time he is a guest lecturer
