EULOGIZES HIS PREDECESSOR.
Judge Southern Makes Speech on Late Frank G. Johnson.
On his first day as appointed judge to succeed the late Judge Frank G. Johnson in division five of the circuit court, Judge Allen C. Southern yesterday spoke a eulogy on the public life of the judge whom he succeeds.
"Patience, kindness and sincerity were his attributes were the attributes that were most shown in his career on the bench," Judge Southern said. "He was a good judge and will be remembered as such by the many attorneys who had legal dealings in his division of the district court."
When the death of Judge Johnson occurred the trial of Harvey H. Shank against S. Erwin Wilmore was in proceedings in his court. Judge Southern continued the case yesterday because it had been invalidated by the death of the judge.
