Think Justice Lehman Will Get Appeals Court Nomination

Supreme Court Justice Irving Lehman probably will be the Democratic nominee for Associate Judge of the Court of Appeals to succeed Judge John W. Hogan of Syracuse, retiring under the age limit, THE NEW YORK WORLD today predicts. The selection of Justice Lehman appears as certain as anything can be so far in advance of the nominating convention, it is emphatically stated. The statement continues:

“Convinced that the Republicans can hardly afford to name a candidate against Justice Lehman and thus break their promise, the Democratic leaders feel that even if the Justice has an opponent he can win. With Judge Hotan retiring, the Democrats will have only one member of their party, Judge Benjamin N. Cardozo of this city, among the court’s membership of seven.”
