of the 17th Judicial District of

One of the most noted traits in
Judge Hays’ character js his

from being a proficient lawyer,
a man to be a successful judge
must possess that judical tem-

from prejudice and prevents the
forming of hasty and immature
conclusions. The people of this
country have long felt the need
of judges with ideas of this

of the most important of state
offices. It is.in this court that
the rights most sacred to the

these important rights are put
