Otto Soglow: It's the Law! by Dick Hyman

It's the Law! was a regular feature that ran in The American Magazine from 1934 to 1956. The series recounted some of the riduculous laws that remained on the books around the country. Written by Dick Hyman, it was illustrated with an appropriate blend of humor and absurdity by the matchless Otto Soglow.
