Judge Raulston Hurries to Get Scopes Monkey Trial Started

Anti-Evolution League in Dayton, Tennessee

Fearing that the city of Chattanooga, Tennessee, might be able to initiate a test case of the Butler Act first and thereby steal away all of the media attention, Judge John T. Raulston holds a special grand jury session to get Dayton's case (the infamous Scopes Monkey Trial) scheduled earlier so John Scopes can be in court as soon as possible.

A state law requires thirty days' notice before a grand jury can meet, but Raulston gets the attorneys to agree to not protest at holding it today instead of in June.
