There is need for a codification of the newspaper laws which would be separate and distinct from the same laws when applied to individuals. This is quite apparent on its face. For instance, the newspapers and magazines are no longer local in their influence. They are national in their circulation, therefore in their influence. You go down upon the streets of our city to-day, and you can find for sale newspapers and magazines from every large city in the world.-from "Newspaper Law"When this collection of speeches and essays was published, global civilization was facing some of the greatest challenges of the 20th century: the truck and the automobile were transforming industrial and personal transport; the airplane was shrinking the planet; international diplomacy and politics were still settling into a new postwar dynamic. Here, some of the greatest minds in the corporate, legal, governmental, and sociocultural arenas share their wisdom on the current state and possible futures of the United States in this formidable new era.From new frontiers in law to the burgeoning power of the consumer, from the coming conflicts over religion to the potential of the federal government to shape the new society that was being born, a new world was being born. Discover the thoughts of the men who were inventing it, including: Louis Brandeis . Clarence Darrow . Benjamin Cardozo . Haley FiskeOliver Wendell Holmes, Jr. . Herbert Hoover . Henry Cabot LodgeJulius Mayer . Andrew Mellon . John D. Rockefeller, Jr. . Charles M. Schwaband many more.

Page 22 - Therefore whosoever heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them, I will liken him unto a wise man, which built his house upon a rock. And the rain descended, and the floods came, and the winds blew, and beat upon that house ; and it fell not ; for it was founded upon a rock. And every one that heareth these sayings of mine, and doeth them not, shall be likened unto a foolish man, which built his house upon the sand.

Page 22 - Then shall the King say unto them on his right hand, Come, ye blessed of my Father, inherit the kingdom prepared for you from the foundation of the world: for I was an hungered, and ye gave me meat: I was thirsty, and ye gave me drink: I was a stranger, and ye took me in: naked, and ye clothed me: I was sick, and ye visited me: I was in prison, and ye came unto me.
Page 17 - O! it offends me to the soul to hear a robustious periwig-pated fellow tear a passion to tatters, to very rags, to split the ears of the groundlings, who for the most part are capable of nothing but inexplicable dumb shows and noise: I would have such a fellow whipped for o'erdoing Termagant; it out-herods Herod: pray you, avoid it.
Page 17 - Speak the speech, I pray you, as I pronounced it to you, trippingly on the tongue : but if you mouth it, as many of your players do, I had as lief the town-crier spoke my lines.
Page 22 - Then shall the righteous answer him, saying, Lord, when saw we thee an hungered, and fed thee? or thirsty, and gave thee drink? When saw we thee a stranger, and took thee in? or naked, and clothed thee? Or when saw we thee sick, or in prison, and came unto thee?
