James Cay Corden, Jr., and

Likely for Lecal Frosts
Governer Sproul mny have mid It Is
understood he thinks he will have
two vacauclcs le 1111 en tire bench of
the Courts of Common Pleas In Phila
delphia as the result of the elevation
of Chief .Justice Rebert von Slosch Slesch
silKKcrt of the Supreme Court of Penn
sylvania, te the Supreme Court of the
ijiilted States and Mhe subsequent
elevation of President .ludge .T. Willis
Mnrtln, of Court Ne. t", te the Supreme
Court of Pennsylvania.
According te reports filtering through
from 1 la rrishurg tednj this Is the rea
son for fhe:deliiy in tilling the vacancy
en the local bench caused by the death
of Judge Jeseph p. Rogers. The Gov Gov
ereor Is hoping mid expecting that
President Harding will appoint Penn
sjIvanln'H.Chlef Justice te the Supreme
Court in-;Wnshlngten. Governer Sproul
Jms a high regard for Judge Slurtin nnd
would be glad of the opportunity te
round out Judge SlnrtlsVs carer en the
bench by nn nnnelntmcnt te the
Supreme Court te fellow up Chief Jus
tice von .Meschzisker.
If the President tclects Chief Jlis Jlis
tlce von Slesehzlskcr, then it Ih mere
than likely, according te the best In
formation, thnt Governer Sproul will
appoint Judgi Slartln te succeed the
Chief Justice. In thut event, of course,
two vacancies would exist en the local
Common Pleas bench.
