Gordon Egbert of This City Wins Law Society's Gold Medal


Second Place Prize is Also Won by a Calgary Man

Within a few days the number of barristers in the province will have been increased by 23, of which number 10 reside in Calgary. It is also worthy of note that the leader in the examinations was W. Gordon Egbert, B.A., who in 12 examination subjects obtained the unusually high percentage of 91.8 per cent. Mr. Egbert, who is a son of Dr. Egbert, of Calgary, and who has studied in the office of Griffiths, Ford, Wright & Miller, will receive the gold medal presented by the Law society of Alberta. The second place prize has been awarded to A. Lannan, who has studied in the office of Reilly & Lunney, and the third prize to F. L. Burnett, of High River, this giving the first three places in the results to the south of the province.
Not only have Calgary students won in the final examinations, but first and second prizes have gone to Calgarians in the first and second intermediate examinations. J. W. Moyer, with Mr. Brooks Waters, won first in the second intermediate and L. W. Brockington first in the first intermediate. F. R. Brady, with H. H.
