50 Year Anniversary SpeechBy Herbert H. Franks, ISBA Past President and Class of 1961Today we remember Pearl Harbor and the day of infamy. This is a day of infamy also for Gov. Blagojevich. He got 14 years.Ladies and Gentlemen, Oliver Wendell Holmes once said, "the life of the law is not logic, it is experience." Holmes must have had our class of senior lawyers in mind when he made this quote, because if there is one thing the people in this class have, it is experience.I wonder how many people in this room expected to reach this day. I sure know I didn't.After being raised on a farm and slopping the hogs and milking the cows twice a day, almost everything you do in later life is easy.How different is the world today!

Now, women are the majority of law students.When we came out to try and make our mark and living, the electric typewriter was just gaining acceptance. A few years later came fax machines, and then in dizzying speed came computers, cell phones, iPads, laptops and the list goes on. How we had to change and learn to use these things, things that our grandchildren can do automatically.
