Former Judge Samuel Rosenfield, past president of the local B’nai B’rith Lodge and active in the Y. M. H. A., and in other civic affairs, changed his name to Samuel Ross Enfield by order of Circuit Court Judge Killoren. The name Rosenfeld was a source of embarrassment and trouble, he testified, and caused him difficulty when travelling abroad, in the visaing of passports and at customs inspections. This has proved a detriment to him and interfered with his orderly travels.

Former Judge Enfield is 57 years old, The announcement of his change of name caused much comment here. In 1916 Governor Gardner appointed Enfield Judge of the Circuit Court. He is active in Democratic politics. Twice he was unsuccessful as party candidate for Congressman, and in 1928 sought the Democratic nomination for Lieutenant-Governor.
