A LAWYER CAN BE A. CONSTRUCTIVE
CITIZEN*
During the years of existence of this association many interesting papers
have been presented to it, written by able jurists; and most of them have dealt

and as a citizen.

taking an active interest; and the attempt to perform a real service in our re-

that we have in the United States of America today.

havegqne through them, has not occurred.since the Civil War. Our economic
conditions-.are at their lowest ebb; the respect for laws is utterly lacking;
crime is rampant and our prisons are crowded.
There have been times when -no doubt there was more real suffering
among people and more absence of the dire necessities of life; but in those
days there were fewer people, less business and less industry. The -variations
