NATION WEIGHS COURT
The proposal of President Roose
velt, that he be given power to ap
point new Federal judges equal to
all now on the Federal bench of 70
years or more, overshadows all oth
er questions of the moment in na
tional importance Enemies of New
Deal legislation point out that such
action would increase the United
States Supreme Court from nine
to fifteen, directly affecting six
justices now sitting. The President
stresses the need of younger blood
in the Federal judiciary and the
more expidtious handling of Fed
eral cases. He estimates that near
ly 10 per cent of the judges now
sitting in United States courts are
70 yetars or over and thereby eligi
ble for retirement.

the breednig of sheep in 1889, ewes

THE TYPICAL EMBEZZLER
New York City A study by the
United States Fidelity & Guarantee
Co., which in 40 years has handled
the cases of more than a million
embezzlers, paints a composite pic
ture of the typical embezzler. He
is about 36, is either married or has
dependents; earns about $l5O per
month, and spreads his thefts over
about 2 1-2 years. He doesn’t start
until he has worked 5 or 6 years
for a firm, and his average defalca
tion is $6,278. Only 2 per cent run
away; 98 per cent hang around un
til they are caught; less than 3 per
cent kill themselves.
