This is a subject which so distinguished an advocate as John W. Davis has characterized as "well-worn," and if there can be any justification for my discussing it with you today, it must lie in such applicability as I may make to our local courts in Nebraska, or in such things as I may say to the younger lawyers who have not yet had the time (or to the older ones who have not had the diligence) to read some of the tremendous literature that exists on the subject. When Judge Goodrich, John W. Davis, Mr. Justice Jackson, Chief Justice Arthur Vanderbilt and the late Chief Justice Charles Evans Hughes have written profusely on a subject, there is certainly nothing additional that I can contribute to the discussion. Those things which I shall say represent only an appropriation of ideas, I hope with consent, from these and other distinguished barristers.
