The Detroit Bar Association has begun a most desirable movement to secure legislation designed to restrict admissions to the bar to persons of approved competency and high character. The requirements proposed in the law which Mr. Levi T. Griffin has drafted are not onerous. The applicant for admission to the bar must show that he studied law three years, or has completed a course at the University law school, and must undergo examination by a committee of 13, appointed by the chief justice of the supreme court. A candidate who does not possess at least this amount of preliminary preparation, and who cannot successfully undergo such a simple ordeal, has no business to the title of attorney. - Detroit TriDune. "That cold seems to have hit you )retty hard. Yes - gave me some fear:ul blows between the eyes."
