TV: "The Law and Mr. Jones" with James Whitmore

Jan. 8, 1962 - “The Law and Mr. Jones,” a drama series starring James Whitmore (pictured right) as a lawyer, will resume April 19 on ABC-TV. The series made its debut in the fall of 1960, but has been off the air since last September. The network said many viewers asked that the program be resumed. Thomas W. Moore, V.P. of programs for ABC, said 13 new episodes would be produced. On the show, Abraham Lincoln Jones (Whitmore) is a lawyer assisted by his law clerk, young C.E. Carruthers (Conlan Carter), and his secretary Marsha Spear (Janet De Gore). His cases usually do not involve violence but rather "white collar" crime.
