It is impossible, without unduly extending the length of this article, to discuss in detail each paragraph of the new rules, but it is our purpose: (1) briefly to survey the historical background; (2) to discuss the principal changes effected in federal procedure through adoption of these rules, and the principal points of similarity and difference between the new federal procedure and our state procedure in Washington; and (3) to consider possible improvements in our state practice which might be adopted therefrom.
