HIS HONOUR HENRY ELAM, who has died aged 89, was one of London's most senior criminal judges. Henry Elam was born in London on Nov 29, 1903, and educated at Charterhouse and Lincoln College, Oxford. He was called to the Bar by the Inner Temple in 1927, and in early years worked indefatigably on the Western Circuit. In 1937, he was appointed one of the youngest junior prosecuting counsel at the Old Bailey, and during the Second World War served as deputy judge advocate in the RAF. Afterwards he worked his way up the hierarchy of prosecutors, becoming second senior prosecuting counsel in 1950. Unlike most full-time prosecutors, he occasionally appeared for the defence - notably in 1952, when he acted for John Thomas Straffen, the strangler of children who had escaped from Broadmoor to kill again. When Straffen was found guilty as a sane man, Elam successfully battled behind the scenes to persuade the Home Secretary to grant a As a barrister, Elam took immense pains to teach his pupils the arts of advocacy. When he was elevated to the bench no fewer than 27 of his former pupils turned up to the party in his honour. Elam also sat as a part-time judge from 1946, as Recorder successively at Poole and Exeter, and then as deputy chairman of West Kent Quarter Sessions. It came as no surprise when, in 1953, he was appointed a permanent judge as deputy chairman of the London Sessions - a post which was translated into a circuit judgeship by the 1971 Courts Act. "He was never arrogant," a court clerk who used to sit with Elam recalled. "He would always make a point of explaining his reason for a sentence, and he was particularly kind with the accused's family if they gave evidence in mitigation of guilt." After retiring in 1976, Elam devoted more time to his beloved fly fishing; and as age took its toll on his legs he had to use a specially designed boat. He also relished his role as secretary of Our Society, a dining club for lawyers, doctors, writers and actors, where lawyers speak off the record about their more sensational cases. Henry Elam married first, in 1930, Eunice Matthews, who died in 1975; they had a daughter. He married secondly, in 1975, Doris Horsford. Fenton Bresler writes: Henry Elam was the finest example of a criminal judge of the old school. He was courteous yet never, like so many of the present generation, bland. There was never any doubt in whose courtroom one found oneself at London Sessions (later Inner London Crown Court), in its courthouse near Elephant and Castle. Well over six feet tall, Elam possessed a strikingly individual voice, which, with its drawn-out vowels, was often affectionately imitated in the barristers' robing room. He could be stern in his sentencing when necessary, but obviously preferred, whenever possible, to be compassionate. He was tolerant of human frailties. I remember one case where I had (rightly) persuaded a client to admit his guilt in a case on Elam's list, confident that Elam would put him on probation - but then the case was switched to the court of another, less humane judge, and the man was sent to prison for an unwarranted 21 months. Elam's charm was that of a bygone era. He once interrupted a trial to tell the jury he had just received a note that Ann Jones had won Wimbledon. He was a human being on the Bench.

CONSTANCE TIPPER, who has died aged 101, conducted pioneering research into metal crystals which enabled her to work out why the hulls of Liberty ships were splitting in two during the Second World War. Her research laid the foundations for crucial developments in ship, aircraft, jet engine and bridge design. A surgeon's daughter, Constance Fligg Elam was born at New Barnet on Feb 16 1894. She was one of the first graduates of Newnham College, Cambridge, where she read Natural Sciences. She went on to work at the National Physical Laboratory and the Royal School of Mines, and completed a doctorate at London University. In 1921 she and Harold Carpenter had produced one of the first methods for converting large pieces of a metal into single crystals. Five years later she and Geoffrey Taylor exploited this breakthrough to determine the crystallographic characteristics of the plastic deformation of aluminium. This was the dawn of the science of the ductility and strength of metals. Her book The Distortion of Metal Crystals (1935) opened up this new subject. In 1928 she married G H Tipper, a superintendent of the Indian Geological Survey, and two years later was elected a Fellow of Newnham. She was later lecturer and reader in engineering at the university. During the Second World War, she worked with J F Baker for the Admiralty, which had run into difficulties in its method of constructing merchant ships. To speed up construction, the hulls of the vessels were all-welded rather than riveted; in some craft, particularly Liberty ships, the hulls were splitting in cold, rough seas. The Admiralty was mystified by the phenomenon - it was as if the metal had turned into glass. Constance Tipper developed the "Tipper Test" to determine the vulnerability of steel. By studying the structures of the cracks with a microscope, she uncovered many of the underlying processes in the crystal grains of the metal. She established that to prevent fracture, a steel should be chosen which did not become brittle until cooled well below service temperatures. In 1962 she published The Brittle Fracture Story, which contains many insights that are still important today. Her husband died in 1947. In 1960 she retired from Cambridge, and moved to Langwathby, Cumbria, where she lived with her brother and spent many happy hours fly-fishing on the rivers Eden and Eamont. Constance Tipper also gardened, painted and played the piano and organ.
THE SPRINGVALLEY BLADE, SATURDAY - DECEMBER 29, 1894, SPRINGVALLEY,
Jane TRUMAN was born April 13, 1810, 2 1/2 miles East of Springvalley, and died December 27, 1894 at her home adjoining Springvalley where she has lived since 1828, in which year she was married to Jeffry TRUMAN, his death occured January 1, 1857. She was the mother of 13 children. 5 sons and 8 daughters of whom 3 sons and 3 daughters are living. She was the last of 5 brothers and 5 sisters, of the family of Josiah and Sarah A. ELAM. Her father was born in Culpepper County, Virginia in 1753. He was a soldier in the War of the Revolution, after which he removed to Kentucky where he was married to Sarah A. PORTER. Being greatly harrased by Indians, numbers of their neighbors being slain and others carried into captivity, mostly by the Miami Tribes, he with others engaged in several expeditions against the savages of the Miami Valley. He was a Captain of a Kentucky Company which was with General St. Clair. While on one of these expeditions he
selected 1000 acres of land on Caesarcreek and in the year 1802 moved his family to it., and on this farm Jane TRUMAN was born. She grew up in the Baptist faith, her mother and father being active members of the Missionary Baptist Church, but she often expressed herself being a believer in the doctrines as taught by the Friends, although she never became a member of any church, she was a woman of strong will power and strict integrity, and if she ever wronged anyone it was
unintentional on her part. So well has she done her part in this world, that in her death, she had no fears of the next. Interment today ( Saturday ) in the family cemetery near the place of her
