ATTICUS FINCH DEFENDS NEGRO IN COURT; WILL HE WIN OR LOSE?

Atticus Finch, 50, a well respected lawyer in the county of Maycomb, is now defending a negro in his next trial. Tom Robinson, a negro who is sentenced to court is Finch's client. The reasons of this trial is not released to the media at this time. Why is Finch defending Robinson? Is he a nigger-lover? Is he connected to this case in any way? We asked Finch these questions. His responses were "Every lawyer gets at least one case in his life that affects him personally. This ones mine." Robinson, who lives in a small settlement beyond the town dump, goes to church and is rumoured to be a clean-living folks. We will be reporting more on this as the trail continues.

MAD DOG

A rabies filled dog roamed the streets of maycomb. Potentially causing harm to others. Good thing one shot Finch was there to take down this very sick dog. With one shot, this dog was taken down and disposed of within two hours
