Our three years of study are over. As seniors about to leave this venerable institution it becomes, in ac- cordance with custom, our duty and our privilege, to present to this court a record of men and events of the past year. We have striven to meet that obligation, to the end that this memorabilia might be as a fountain, at which, in the years to come, we may drink deep of pleas- ant memories and reminiscences of these, our years of preparation for the Bar. As we proceed to lay the evi- dence before you, we ask the indulgence of this court and, jury, that if perchance, there has been aught overlooked or forgotten it may be attributed to the zeal and inex- perience of counsel trying their first case. (May it not be their last).

Molinari Jerome P. Tyne Thirty-sevenThirty-eight Senior ClassSenior Class History At the end we pause, turn back for a moment in retrospect, and remem- ber—before we turn ourselves to the infinitely more difficult tasks that seem to loom before us in the inexorable future. In this retrospective view, this fleeting backward glance, we see many things in our three years at the Albany Law School which give us a deep- felt sense of satisfaction in having performed and accomplished, conscien- tiously and well, what we had set out to do. And if there is any one thing more than another that we now may look back on with pleasure, it is the readiness with which we learned and understood, and, eventually, made a living part of ourselves the traditions and the spirit of our school. And we hand these traditions down to our successors as we have re- ceived them from our predecessors. We have kept the faith. With almost prophetic accuracy, the compiler of our first class history, said, in reference to the discouragements that met us as freshmen: “ But we went on.” We feel the prophecy has been fulfilled; that the time has come when we can look back and say that we have gone on. In a way, the spirit of carrying on has been the distinctive spirit of our class. Each class leaves the distinctive mark of its class personality on the traditions of the school, that becomes part of them. That, we believe, is ours and the fullness of time will tell. Historically, the career of the class of 1923 has been marked by pro- gress in every line of undergraduate activity. Since our coming to the school, athletics have been started on a collegiate scale. The name of the Law School has gone far and wide on basketball courts. From the very beginning, members of the class of 1923 took part in that advance march, both in the active game and in the more intricate details of management and direction. Scholastically we have witnessed a period of change in many details of school work—all for the better, and all part of the ever constant march in advance in which 1923 has never failed to shoulder arms and to follow or lead, as it saw its duty. Politically we have been fortunate. There have been but few disputes. Our elections and our meetings as a class have been in that spirit of unity and cooperation that we look forward to at the Bar. It is that spirit, more than anything else—the willingness to appreciate and to understand and to help one another that has enabled 11s to live true to our ideal to “ carry on.” While that spirit lasts we fear not the future. Thirty-nineGladys J. Ackert Troy Art Contributor to Verdict (2) (3). How wc used to smile freshman and junior years when Gladys came nonchalantly in at any time from 9:15 to 9:30. This year she has been closer to the main entrance, fortu- nately for Gladys. We wish all of us could take life as philosophically as she docs. If she makes up her mind, nothing—not even the charge of a Supreme Court Justice will halt her progress. Incidentally, wc arc appreciative of her art work which has enlivened the pages of the Verdict since her debut at Albany Law. Photos by Gustare Lorcy Miriam J. Albee Albany Justinian; Class Secretary (3): Designer of Page Border for 1923 Verdict (3). “ Jo " " Meim " "And lo! M. Albee’s name led all the rest.” In Miriam, the unsympathetic law has found a constant lover and ’23 has known always the unchanging smile of a true and understanding friend. She invariably underestimates that knowledge of the law which in its surcncss and comprehensive quality, puts the wisest of us to shame. She has meant much to 1923. The sweetness of her disposition is never dulled by the stormiest of weather or the bluest of blue Mondays in Practice Court. It is permanent and forever. FortyE James J.

" Jimmie ” From the Pine Hills section, famous for its fair women, fine houses and “ Orange Blos- soms,” via Scotland, comes this blithe and debonair youth, the fairest of Law's fair Seniors. What Jimmie doesn't know about women “ain't.” It is said that Jimmie’s mail carrier daily staggers under the load of catalogs enterprising merchants send him for his inspection—brochures depicting every- thing of interest to the prospective bridegroom, from installment jewelry to Aladdin Houses. But. Jimmie! Don’t you know that the first sigh of love is the last of wisdom? Albert Averbach Schenectady I'2A; Justinian; Verdict Board (3); Class Secretary (1); Class Executive Committee (3) ; Inter fraternity Conference (2) (3). " Al" “Aver” Averbach is our metriculous commuter. That is to say. day by day he manages to ride over from Schenectady in the trolley express and never, to conscious observation, does lie lose the primness of dress and purity of collar and linen with which he leaves his electric city boudoir. Once in a mad. spattering, mud- embalming taxi dash to Albany to get to an “ exam ” when trolley service failed, six Schenectady youths emerged limp and travel- stained. But Albert came forth as unscathed as Daniel from the Lion's Den—smiling at tonsorial adversity. Photos by Gustave I.orcy Forty cueMichael J. Bartholomew Troy Class Poet (2) " Mike " “ Hart " Mike has hob-nobbed and rubbed shoulders with many a movie celebrity in the course of his professional career prior to deigning his talent on the law. Which is a modest way of telling you he has been “ in the pictures.” as Robert Vignola might say. He appeared in the “ Blue-Eyed Villain ”—three reel master film—in the role as top bellboy, and was a con- spicuous figure in the mob scene of the “ Birth of an Idea.” Law is with him only atmosphere —local color. And to think that he was born within sight of Brooklyn Bridge! Photos by Gustave Lorcy G. Robert Bartlett Walden AXP; Chancery. Syracuse University, 1919-22; " Bob " “ Bart ” Bob grew up in the small frontier village of Walden, where head-hunting tribesmen run riot. He didn't join our class until this year, because he passed two years among the im- petuous, bewitching co-eds at Syracuse. What's that? Long distance? Call for Mr. Bartlett? Hold the wire, please.

" Jimmie ” " Bennie ” Our little Napoleon. For who else but the great Emperor was possessed of such genius and so many talents; orator, actor, student, politician, financier and philosopher, and the originator of many brilliant schemes and suc- cessful ventures? He’s in the bonds with “Judge” Lawler and ofttimes impersonates Captain Kidd. He has a left-handed sense of humor and can turn a deaf ear—when con- venient. Is he a clever politician? Ask him. Photos by Gustave I.orey Francis Bergan Albany Chancery; Class Toastmaster (-2); Verdict Board (3). State College 1920. " Frank ” Here indeed is the man versatile, one who is cites Itti anywhere from the plush draperies of society’s boudoir to the toughest dive in the toughest part of the slums. 'Tis rumored that in his youth he aspired to be a journalist. When it comes to information, Frank has no rival. He can discuss any phase of politics, history, religion, or the latest scandal, and is inimicably at home on any question, from “ Education in the Capital District Before the Flood ” to “ The Cosmic Urge Among Modern Martians.” Just recently he has taken up tow- ing about some sweet and dainty young blonde. But lie’s a hclluvah good boy. A Forty-threeWilliam Pickard Boyle Jamestown nil’; Class Toastmaster (1); Senior Member Prom Committee (3). U. S. Infantry, 1918. “Bill” "Pick" A mighty man with a ministerial air, Bill has gone through life with a seriousness that is so intense that it leaves a perpetual halo of sadness about his comely face. We think that, secretly, his life is imbued with an aloof sense of nicety. ‘‘He was among them, but not of them.” Photos by Gustar o l.orcy John Anthony Brady Cohoes Class Secretary (2). St. Bonaventure’s College, 1918-19; Football Squad (1). University of Detroit, 1919-20; Track Team (1); Hockey Team (1); Basketball Squad (1); Class Prom Committee (1). " Judge " " Ox " " Jack " “ Huff " This versatile athlete was born in Manchester, England. At an early age he had won the championships of all sports worth while in the “ right little, tight little isle,” and set sail for larger fields to conquer. From “ Ruff’s” own blushing account of his athletic prowess, we wonder how he found time to develop those Fritz Kreislcr tones on the fiddle to which we vainly attempted to dance after the basketball games. If the lightning speed of his hand when ‘‘Ox” volunteers in class is indicative of his speed on the cinder track, he must be a Charlie Paddock. Forty-fourNorthville 1'i.ovi) S. Brownell Class Prophet (3.) " Brownie ” " Kruno ” If knowledge can be gleaned from environ- ment. then “ Bruno ” should be accomplished. Not only is he a member of our most learned class, but he is also burdened with the task of making a periodical survey of our library in order that the books may not decompose. Judging from the condition of most of the books, this is a man’s size job. ' Bruno ’’ preaches the doctrine of self-confidence, culti- vates the faculty field with a heavy drag, and aspires to the bar—but never has had his foot on the rail. Photos by Gnslai c l.orey C.

" Chief " “ Ed " “ Brownie " As a fearless fire-fighter, “ Brownie ” has no equal in the ranks of the Shortsville Hose Company. Whenever the still, night air of Shortsville is pierced by the shriek and clang of the fire gong, a cry goes up from the multi- tude for ’’Our Hero.” FIRE.” “FIRE.” “MAN THE BUCKETS.” But word of the great conflagration has already reached the ears of the “chief.” He gathers his retinue about him as he dons the red shirt that bespeaks his authority. “ Hush.” " Silence along the lines.” “ Hark you, Dominick, we will meet at the village pump and there we will lay our pipes. And remem- ber—women and children first.” Alas. Alac..........FALSE ALARM. Forty-fiveRensselaer Francis J. Burns mi’; Devil’s Own; Justinian; Athletic Coun- cil (2) (3) ; Basketball Team (2) (3) ; Cap- tain (3). Georgetown University, 1920. " Tanner" From across the waters of the majestic Hud- son and out of the fog and mist of the smoky city comes this fair youth seeking knowledge within the time honored walls of this historic school. Leaving Georgetown to join us in the Junior year. “Tanner” lost no time in doing things and became the captain of our basketball team. His speed on the court is matched only by his agility with the books, and he dangles a coveted Justmian key as evidence of that fact. But there is nothing ostentatious about him and perhaps he even approximates the other extreme. Douglas A. Calkins Rensselaer Chancery. " Doikj " This little boy with a perfect visage is a Mellin's food baby from Rensselaer. “Doug” would have beaten Apollo to a frazzle if he hadn’t over-developed his vo:ce—one of the smooth, highly polished type. Look him over, boys. “ Aw. gee, fellows, don’t put that in. What will the girl say?” Forty-sixMilton A. Chase Rochester Chancery; Justinian; Class Treasurer (1) ; Chairman Class Executive Committee (2). U. S. Infantry, A. E. F.. 1918; St. Mchicl Offensive; Argonnc Offensive. “ Milt" Brilliance emanates from “ Milt ’’ even as light from the sun. Perhaps it may be considered irrelevant to describe him as being the pos- sessor of red hair, but we feel it our duty to say. as a matter of record, that he has light, auburn hair and also the characteristics which are so pronounced in a person so burdened. It’s a dull class meeting when ‘‘Milt" can't pull off some fireworks. Ruth K. Child Albany Justinian; Class Executive Committee (1). Vassar College. A. 1?.. 1908. Secretary, Home Service Section American Red Cro;s, 1917-2J. Secretary, Albany County Board of Child Welfare, 1916-23. Between politics and child-welfare work, it is almost inconceivable how Ruth finds time to devote to the study of the law. She likes fresh air immensely. To sit with a window closed, shutting out the delightfully, balmy December gusts is to her a sign of total de- pravity. The freshness of scent with a hint of spruce and pine, noticeable in the Senior room at the beginning of lectures, is due to her motherly solicitude in opening the win- dows. And to think she nearly became Judge of the Children’s Court. Even now, in her quasi-judicial way, she murmurs in liquid tones when class decisions please her, “ I concur.” Photos by Gustave l.orey Forty-sevenElmer A. Clapp Bloomfield, N. J. Class Executive Committee (2) “ Al ” When we look at " Al ” we realize what an advantage there must be in being able to cope with the big things in life and at the same time not having to bend our backs to do it. We have often reflected on the immensity of the Jersey “ skccters ” and we had formed the impression that nothing greater could be bred there. But when we saw “ Al,” we were aware that we had made a serious mistake. As yet he hasn’t decided on where he will practice when he gets out of college, but there is a story in circulation that there is a girl .n the case. "Ain’t Love Grand?" Margery C. Collins Chaumont " Marg » Margery lives at the “ Y. W.” Of course there’s nothing against that. But she actually receives telephone calls there. Masculine voices. ”Y. W.” traditions trampled! A group of girls enviously gathered around the fire place, listen to Margery at the ’phone. They learn no more of her than have her puzzled classmates. That’s next to nothing. But we do know she loves the law. Whom else she loves, we. like the ”Y. W.” girls, cannot tell. Photos by Gustave J.orcy Forty-eightThomas R. Connery Cohoes Class Marshal (1). " Tom ” “ T. Rr " Sheriff ” There is said to be a marked resemblance be- tween “Tom” and Clarence J. Fennessy, valiant chief of the Albany prohibition office. Blue eyes, rosy cheeks and fleeting hair are his. They call him “ Sheriff.” But he doesn’t “chase” rum in any sense of the word. He has been described as “ loquacious ” and “blushing,” and his ambition is simple: to get rich easily on the Stock Exchange. Samuel J. Danno Rochester A A; Cheerleader (2) (3). “ Sam ” Sam has finally achieved the goal toward which he has long cast lingering eyes—the power to sway vast multitudes. As cheer- leader, Sam has been, to say the least, the “ big noise.” I f he can in later years sway a jury as he has a cheering section, he promises to be a successful attorney. Then, too, there must be something about Sam that we know nothing about, for he admits that the women all fall for him. Perhaps it is the block “ A ” on his sweater that does the trick. Lord only knows what else it could be. Photos by Gust axe l.orey Forty-nineGeneseo Joseph G. D’Aprile ‘I’—K; Devil’s Own; Basketball Team (1) (2) (3). " Joe ” Joe balled, and his arrival gave Geneseo an apology for its existence. Rumor has it that Joe wields a wicked hoof when subjected to the trcmulation of soft music and dim lights. But this is nothing to the way in which lie can " tear up the floor ” when he has his eye on the basket. And after leading the team in points scored for three years the most casual observer must admit that he has SOME eye for the elusive cage. Andrew C. Davidson Cooperstown ATO; Devil’s Own; Business Manager Ver- dict (3); Class Executive Committee (3) ; Tennis Tournament Committee (2). Cornell University, 1917-18. Reserve Ofliccrs Training Camp, 1918. " Dave ” "Andy” “ Andy ” comes to us from the greatest village in the Union—to hear him tell of it. Any hour of the day or night, and so long as you will listen, “ Andy ” will regale you with talcs of the Leatherstocking country until you can almost picture him as one of the “ Last of the Mohicans” himself—tomahawk in hand, bring- ing back the scalps—of unwary advertisers. And the consensus of opinion is that ” Dave ” is a pretty "good injun” at that. Photos by Gustai c Lorey FiftyReginald II. Davies Beacon Verdict Board (3); Class Executive Com- mittee (2) (3) ; Chairman Class Dance Com- mittee (2). “ Reg ” " Dave ” Davies, the man with the deep, resounding voice—massive in its weight and ponderous in expression of thought behind the word—would make an impression at any bar. legal or other- wise. His majestic voice raises roofs and breaks windows miles away. Websterian, it rises to Heaven, and, vibrating there, wrings tears from the azure skies. Now it is recita- tion time and Davies is called upon. We listen. “ No.” he says, in stentorian tones carrying weight and dignity, causing the door- knob at the end of the room to rattle.

But evidently it is better known now that Jim has grown up than when he came into the world. We are guided in this thought by his own testimony. In his questionnaire, Jim identified the place where he was born by writing “ Amsterdam N.

His schooling in the gentle art of election campaigning has been thorough and complete. He has a knack all his own in cultivating friendships—not the professional handshaking of the ward "boss” either, but the unaffected, straight-forwardness that denotes the man. Ed has been through the smoke and fire of political battle, knows the " aroma ” of campaign cigars, and the thrill of red fire and victory.

Then he is ready for a new sally at the assumption of earnest- ness. Harriet Ruth Edic Utica George Washington University, 1920.

Girlishly, she bobbed her hair, and then, under the pressure of applause, the bob disappeared. We fear she is a novice vamp with expert tendencies. She would enslave anyone in the light of her brown eyes—her ambition is so very inordinate.

The last item would considerably relieve his con- science. When there is work in sight Charlie simply must get it done. He spends hours and hours in the library satisfying this “ call of conscience.” Somewhat inclined to ennui, the blase and the risque. Charlie claims to have been born at New Paltz, where many pretty young ladies are in training to become school inarms, and we often wonder how Charlie managed to tear himself from these delightful surroundings.

He takes life rather pugnaciously and is inclined to make speeches and tell stories for the benefit of the instruc- tors. The stories are often appreciated as much as the recitations. Like most Gallaghers, he is somewhat of a politician. Often his ideas are radically disconcerting—even start- ling at times. But he usually manages to make himself heard and respectfully listened to. In his white shirt front at a Junior prom, or any other of the more or less brilliant social fetes, in which we hear he plays the lion, he is a gr-r-and man.

Y., “Lee” Yost’s wanderings have earned him a place as a real live globe trotter. " When I was in Germany”—begins the story of wild life with the Crown Prince.

We hope Bill never abuses the privileges of his high office by " franking" his voluminous mail to the girls he left behind him in the Flower City. Nights, when Bill is not playing with the Rochester Centrals, lie is toasting in the line of his official duty at the Seneca or trip- ping the " light fantastic" into some maiden’s heart at the Rochester.

Sisson Seventy-sevenll ISU-KlliM S Junior ClassJunior Class History Juniors! Father Time lias hustled us along our journey until now we have successfully run two-thirds of our course in old Albany Law. and we are about to take upon ourselves the dignity of Seniors—also the Practice Act and Evidence. Then, the gods permitting, take unto ourselves the coveted degree, descend into the valley again and fight to gain the pinnacle of that other hill, SUCCESS, in the business of life. In the beginning we signed the pledge to keep the peace. We have kept it and found it consistent with keeping a full measure of that hilarity which is an essential feature of class spirit and college tradition, while we have grown in wisdom, in knowledge and in favor with the faculty and men. In politics ’24 cannot be rivaled. If it does not produce a goodly num- ber of statesmen and political spellbinders it will not be because its members lack practice in that line, but rather because they have had enough of politi- cal intrigue. Already '24 knows “ Robert’s Rules of Politics ” a good deal better than how many class taxes it has paid. In athletics ’24 has taken a prominent part, contributing Dobris, Foy, Klein and Reynolds to the basketball forces of Albany Law. The history of ’24 has been one of which we feel proud. Her representations on all the school organizations have done her credit. She has had a successful past, and looks forward to an even brighter future. “ May e’en her faults lean to Virtue’s side.” Seventy-nineClass Roll 1924 Felix J. Aulisi, (Union), A4 A, KB I .

Born in the Fall, cut in the mid-die, bust-ed in the Spring—it’s a hard Life. Wean-ed from our Homes, we came to Law School to stud-v Law. In-stead we stud-v Books. AVhat are Books forV Some- body writes some-thing. It’s print-ed in a Book. You read the Book to find out what’s writ-ten in it. That’s all we know a-bout them. But no! That’s not what Books are used for. Far from it. All Books have their par-tic-u-lar Uses. Even if they have Use-less Uses, they have Uses. Past Uses are now Use-less Uses; yet Use-less or not Use-less Uses, they must be learn-ed. What’s it all a-bout, we want to know? We thot that Laws were sett-led,—or at least anchor-ed.

Meaxy, Jr., ’25 One Hundred ThirtyOne Hundred Thirty-one - -Review of Basketball Season 1922-25 Faced with the most formidable collegiate schedule yet to be arranged by a purely professional school anywhere, Albany Law in its 1922-23 basketball season, in a game practically still in its infancy in the school, played well against its bigger, heavier and more experienced collegiate and university rivals. While the team won five out of eighteen games on its schedule, in the comparison of the total number of points scored, with the total of its rivals, the team made a much better showing—402 points being scored by Albany against 525 by their opponents. Handicapped at the beginning of the year by the graduation of Powers, Behan and Taylor, all members of last season’s team, Captain Burns did well to develop such a harmonious and aggressive five as the 1922-23 team has proven to be. Coach Yavits deserves much credit for his work, in which he was ably assisted by Rinaldi, Captain of the 1922 basketball team of Union University. The winning ability of the Law School was seriously impaired by the lack of a suitable gymnasium. The Albany High School Court where the team has formerly practiced and played became unavailable in the early part of the season. Consequently the team was forced to adapt itself to new courts, play- ing thereafter in both the armory and the Catholic Union hall. After the combat with the Crescent A. C., when it seemed that the Lawyers had at last struck their stride, press despatches commented as follows: “The Law School five through the victory, arc in a position to demand recognition from any of the leading college fives in the east. They accomplished a feat that only Yale and Dartmouth have been able to accomplish this season, and their margin of victory was greater than that of either of these teams which are members of the Intercollegiate League. The Lawyers played champion- ship basketball.” Captain Burns was the most consistent scorer on the team. Always a dependable player, he steadied the team in the face of all difficulties. In the Rochester game Captain Burns showed his best form when he stacked up against Callaghan, who had been outscoring his men all season—even in the Yale Cornell games. “ Tanner ” held his opponent to a single field goal, while scoring 14 points himself. D’Aprile, '23, the star forward of the team scored 119 foul points dur- ing the season and 20 field baskets. He was selected forward on the“ All Star Team ” of the Capital District and will be a pronounced loss to tjhc Lawyers’ team of 1923-24. Dobris,’ 24, exhibited an excellent brand of basketball, playing for the Lawyers throughout the entire season. He was selected Captain and guard of the second “ All Star Team ” of the Capital District. One Hundred Thirty-twoTop Roza—Francis, Dobris, Clark, Yavits, McLean, Tomanovidt, Fecn Second Roza—Burns, Foy, IYAprile, Klein Bottom Roza—Aulisi, Nolan Foy, ’24. scored the greatest number of field baskets during the season. With two years' experience he will undoubtedly be one of the strongest men on the 1923-24 team. Clark, ’25, was the outstanding representative of the Freshman Class. A regular on the team his Freshman year, he should be of unusual value during the next two years. Outweighed by practically every opposing team; practicing and training under unfavorable conditions, yet, withal, playing clean, high-calibre basket- ball the Alumni and students of the Albany Law School have cause to be proud of the 1922-23 team. With the better facilities for practice and playing that are coming in the near future, Albany Law School basketball teams can main- tain the same standard of playing the game as evidenced in the past, and, we hope achieve more victories.

P. A. Dedication “ I HAVE REARED ME A COLUMN More lasting than ye granite." Often as we sat by the crackling logs at home and pored over the A. L. S. catalogue in the last of our High School days—(we thought then that the Education Building was used by the faculty as an office)—we used to wonder why the part that told about the debating “ and other " societies formed by students was given so inconspicuous a place. It seemed a shame to us that so important and relevant a topic as a debat- ing society in a Law school should be given only one line at the bottom of a page, as if some day, when the rules at the top of the page became longer, it should be crowded out altogether. We didn't know then, in our unsophistication, that the debating society, like tucking one’s napkin in one’s collar, “ simply isn't.” Nor that catalogues should not be taken literally. The Junior class in its characteristic perverseness, took this debating thing seriously, while it tram- pled, totally disregarding, on some of the most sacred traditions ot tne school. But even it learned—in time. One hears no more of that society, docs one? Business of the courts has grown tremendously, we are told. So it seems. Even the registrar’s office has felt it. Appropriately painted in black, it ha!s placed three boxes outside its door to receive papers, and thus expedite the rush of business. The boxes are sepulchral. They suggest rough boxes, and seem to say: “ Who enters here can ne'er turn back." They are the seals of fate. One shudders like E. A. Poe might, at their ghastly significance. And they danced the «-esthetic. Grecian, nymphic fantasy on the concrete campus. But not every school has a nice concrete campus. Asphalt, spare that campus! It is reported there are rattlesnakes in the proposed new campus in Sheridan Park. Maybe we could put salt on their tails and preserve them for the amuse- ment of future generations of freshmen. Our Hundred Forty-twoWith the rattles could easily go heroic tales of battles with ferocious snakes to startle the nursery. Speaking of aesthetic campuses—in the rear of the school there is a little patch of ground that is beloved to us all. It is our “ inner campus.” Weeds grow there. Once in an exam we sat and thought, looking out of the window. There were two birds mating. Above was blue sky . . . green blades of grass were just visible through the melting snow—we thought ... of many beautiful things—but not of the answer. The Dean is reported to be of the opinion that examinations should be penned legibly. He has even gone so far as to say that if he is unable to read an examination paper, he cannot be responsible for results. The following has been returned several times by the printer for scriptic interpretation. Even when typewritten 'copy was handed him. he seemed to have grave doubts as to its legibility. We call it: Rhyme or a Reckless Senior Oh, I should wor- Ry how I write. I know my scrib- bling is a sight. • I feel no penman Guy could dope Out what 1 mean; But I have hope . He’ll KNOW the an- swer that I write, Nor have to read— He’ll FEEL I’m right. That’s what the printer did—lie felt his way. “ This is what the statute says, but—here is how you make the money. With profuse veneration for Don Marquis, we take off our hat to our own wall mottoes: •“ Don’t read that case today, it may be overruled tomorrow. Patience is its own reward," and " Never discuss business with a client when you can tell him you arc too busy to be bothered." F. B. Sponge—“ I think a street car hash just passed. Wet—“ How yuh know?” Sponge—“ I can slice its tracks.” One Hundred Forty-threeImpressions of a Premature Graduate I’ve “ busted out.” Oh! maddening thought That prompts me these few lines to write; The thoughts that fill my throbbing brain Are black as somber shades of night. Ambition once surged through my breast And filled me with a pulsing fire; But now no more—'tis flown away Likewise my Mope and my Desire. But lest you think the happening strange And. credulous your wonder shout: . Let not your conscience shape your thoughts For twice before I’ve “ busted out.” 'Twas back within niv high school days When youth went wild and did not care; I overstepped conventions’ bounds And consequently “ took the air.” Elusive knowledge I pursued Not dampened by my first mistake; Hoping that my fortunes might By chance escape the croupier’s rake. My college days were short and sweet, I found I could not linger long; Strange as it seems, I realized The world was right, and I was wrong. No more the campus I will tread, Nor tarry brief within its halls; Tho' I stayed there but five short months, I dearly love those old gray walls. I studied some, I idled more— I supped the dregs from Pleasure’s spoon; And when examinations came, I graduated—but too soon. I rested then—and thought it o’er, I still possessed financial means; So this time dwelt upon the law, To learn of contracts, torts and liens. One Hundred Forty-fourOf my research in legal lore Professors entertained some doubt. For when they asked me what I knew, I said, “ not much ” and “ busted out ' I'm going back where men are men, Where air is pure and friends are true; And there among my native hills. I’ll find a wealth of things to do. I'll teach the children of my town. Who on this life are starting out, To do their deeds with purpose true. And hold a fear of “ busting out.’’ But when they read my epitaph. if there be one-----1 have a doubt; I hope they'll read there, nothing worse, Than that I simply “ busted out.’’ A Plea in Abatement Scene: The Night Court. “ Naw! Judge, lissen! I didn't know it was after i o’clock and lissen. Judge, I'm not the kind of a girlie who would break an old law, much less lower myself by staying in a cabaret after i o’clock. And. lissen, Judge, any- way it wasn't my fault. This guy of mine kept tellin’ me to sit down, and honest to gosh, Judge. 1 couldn't do nothin' else without him hangin’ me a bust on the jaw, cause, no kiddin,' Judge, while my guy’s got speed, he ain’t got no control—not to speak of anyways, Judge. An' I ain't riskin’ goin' in no joint anyway. Judge. I know that song palace ain’t no funeral parlor putting out embalmin' fluid like the rest of ’em, Judge. I couldn’t be guzzlin' that stuff with a clean heart, Judge, what with me gettin’ hitched up soon. Only. I tells dearie (that's what I calls him. Judge), I tells lum when he slips the rock on me thoid finger, I says: Lissen, kid. there’s going' to be no taxis for this baby, even though the shiner is on her finger. The only cabs I I get in with you is the one from the house to the City Hall to be married.’ Not that he’s that kind of a guy or nothin’. Judge.

Seniors at the Albany Law School are holding tightly to both sides of their desks lest they be swept out when results of the mid-year examinations are announced this week. Flapper expressions have been suppressed in favor of long, worried, judicial countenances. The Seniors complain that day by day in every way exams arc getting stiffer and stiffer, but they can't make them- selves believe that they arc getting better and better. Tests in procedure evi- dence and wills have been given and from the standpoint of the Seniors, it would take a Hughes, Taft, or Littleton to gain a passing average. Otic Hundred Forty-seven An Hour in the Judge's Office Judge Lawler is seated at his desk perusing a recently completed brief on a million dollar breach of promise suit, which he has consented to try, out of sheer pity and generosity, for a poor little chorine. The telephone rings:— “ Hello, hello!—Who?—Oh, yes, Senator,—Yes, Yes.—Nice afternoon.— What?—Xo, I couldn't consider it.—Couldn’t consider it. I'm too busy just now.—A hundred thousand retainer, eh?—H’m-’m—Well, I’m awfully sorry, Senator, but I guess the D. H. will have to look for someone else. It’s ab- solutely impossible to hire intelligent help these days.—Yes, yes—Goodbv.” The Judge thoughtfully lights a Corona Carona (55c. per), crosses one leg and muses upon the great opportunities one has to pass by in this life. The office boy enters. “ Beg pardon, sir, but will you see Mr. Lasky?” The Judge: “ Lasky,—Lasky? Who’s he?” Boy: “ Mr. Lasky, sir, of the Lasky Pictures, Inc.” The Judge: “Oh, yes! Yes, yes. Show him in.” Mr. Lasky enters. The Judge: “How do you do, Mr. Lasky. Have a chair. Smoke? No? Oh, yes,—yes, yes. I remember.” Mr. Lasky: ‘‘How is my case coming on, Judge?” The Judge: “ Why—a-a—, quite a difficult case, yes. It brings up some nice distinctions of law. Of course, you understand that the motion picture industry is very dear to my heart.—Very dear.—In fact, in the past, I have been instrumental in opening the door to many people who were desirous of coming into closer contact with the moving pictures. Do not w'orry, Mr. Lasky, do not worry. I am taking the case to the Court of Appeals next week, and, (here the Judge pats Mr. Lasky on the shoulder) we need not worry about the outcome there.” “ Goodday sir. goodday.” (In the meanwhile gently propelling Mr. Lasky toward the door) “ Xo need to worry at all! Goodday. Come again." The Judge returns to his desk, resumes his Corona Carona and rings for the boy. The boy enters. The Judge: “ Bring in my golf bag and order the car for 2:30." Boy: “Yes sir.” (nearly makes exit) The Judge: “ Oh! Boy! Be sure there arc plenty of balls in the bag.— Plenty!” One Hundred Forty-eightThe telephone rings: 1 lello, hello!—Who?—Oh, yes. Mr. Barnes,—Yes, Yes.—Nice afternoon. —What?—Outline the party platform?—Put some meat into it?—Yes, yes. —I understand that the party needs rejuvenating,—needs some younger blood in it. I really would like to—ah—sort of outline things for the boys.—Supreme Court?—Me?—Why-a-a—it never entered my head.—Xo. I'm ab-so-lutc-ly out of politics:—that is actively, of course,—you understand.—” (The boy enters, golf bag over shoulders. The Judge suddenly remem- bers golf match.) “ Awfully sorry Mr. Barnes, awfully sorry. I'm afraid the Republican Party will have to look for someone else.” (Stands up) "Important golf match on this afternoon. The championship of Rome, you know, is at stake.” Slams receiver on hook and dashes out. Prom —A Comedy-Drama ACT i. Contemplation Admiration Flirtation Infatuation ACT 2. Inspiration .

No, dear and gentle reader, the scene is not a Presidential assassination, the battle of Bull Run, a Billy Sunday meeting, or a session of the New York Board of Aldermen. It is our own Chancery Society, staging a mock trial. The newspapers had said the trial “ would reflect in the minutest detail, the actual practice in New York State courts.” It did. On the bench sat Surrogate Lawyer. The same precise consideration to questions involved in Chancery's mock trial was given in his rulings on law and evidence, and the same judicial ease and grace of manner were worn by him there, as on a certain other occasion, shortly after, when issues of vast control were at stake before him in a real trial, and shining lights of the Metropolitan bar marshalled formidably, facts before him for decision. Then there was a stenographer who worked assiduously for the correct- ness of the record, and a clerk who mumbled sweet, incoherent nothings into the ears of witnesses and pronounced them “ sworn,” in the traditional manner of clerks. The figure with folded arms! Who is he? Caesar? Oh no, that is not a toga he wears, it is a late edition of a Rochester coat. Is he Joe Brant, the Injun chief? With that slickly pasted hair? Never. The heroic folded armed figure is none other than Milorad Tomanovitch. Himself in person! Not a radio; not a moving picture. If there was ever doubt as to who he is, there can be none as to what he says. We listen. “ I object, I OBJECT.” Then a pause while the court rules in the usual way. “ Oh I EXCEPT!” The court explains its position. “ Oh no,” says Milorad in conclusion as he sits down. With the next question, he begins all over. He has an inimitable faculty of excepting to the ruling of the court. He seems to threaten bloody thunder on appeal. “ Wait till you see what the Court of Appeals will say,” his jingoistic manner indicates. But the Court cannot be swerved. G—r—r—r, Wuf! Wuf! “But you did say that DIDN’T you? NOW what do you say?” That’s Milton A. Chase, prosecuting attorney. Bingo! Scare the witness. Make him shiver. Shake him up. Grill him. Make him look ridiculous. Then sit down and say, “ We rest,” That’s Milton. One Hundred FiftyThe poor jury! When the smoke settled and the court attendant took them out, they looked as though they hadn’t the slightest idea what the trial was all about. True to the sacred traditions of juries, they couldn’t agree, but it was getting near bed time and the call of Business College was loud for the next morning, so they made it “ guilty.” The defendant looked guilty anyhow, the jury thought. And Giles got forty years. “One Hard JVeek ’ ’ From a Senior's Diary Monday—Woke up with beastly headache. Must be the foam on Riley’s beer is getting too light. Slept through the Dean’s equity.

The answers to this question were not flattering. “ Impossible ’ atid “ change the entire staff ” arc examples of the wide range in the trend of thoughts expressed. “ Put in pictures of girls in bathing suits.’’wrote one. “Put plate glass on the Senior photos,” said another. We ignore such. To tell the truth we are awfully sensitive about being handed the razzberry so roughly as we were in the responses to this inquiry. “ Tax the students $5 each ” is a good suggestion. We suspect that came from the Business Manager, but anyway, its author is a person after our own editorial heart. But to spare our own burning checks we print no more of the things the questionnaires said about us. (N.B. The “ Boss’’ insisted that we add " Fire the Editor-in-Chief” to the things that make us sorely sensitive.)

Don't Tty 'This on John According to the Denver University Parrakeet a professor at their Law school is hindered by poor hearing. If a pupil mumbles along while reciting, he is apt to get by with very little preparation. One of the class was called on, “ Mr. Mahoney, state the next care please.” The luckless student was void of any knowledge on the subject but lie had a copy of the Rocky Mountain News be- fore him, so he read:— " First inning—Ward tossed out Ban- croft going far to his left to get a mean bounder. Groh singled over second base. Frisch ahead of him, Young flied out. Kelly fouled out to Schang. Three runs, three hits, no errors.” “ What you say is substantially cor- rect. if you mean that the plaintiff’s in- junction should have been overruled.” said the professor, presuming a good reci- tation. --------y.----- WE WONDER IF THE GUY WHO PAINTS THOSE HOLE- PROOF HOSIERY ADVER- TISEMENTS FROM LIFE GETS PAID BESIDES. ------V------ Sambo: " You know, Rastus, dat every time Ah kisses mah wife she close her eyes an’ hollah ? ” Rastus: “Ah say she do.” Sambo: “What's dat, Nigger? ” Rastus: “ Ah say, do she? ” —Goblin. “COMBINATION S HOT."

Dean: “ But you say, ‘ Gentlemen of the Jury you have been chosen because of your intelligence, etc.! ” Joe: " Yes!!!

Chagrin, the Futility Of it all— Where in Hell do these law books disappear to? A teacher in a local school was ex- plaining sentence construction to her pupils. The topic went like this: “ A predicate is an absolute necessity in a sentence, to make it complete. Xo sentence can be given without a predi- cate.” An unusually bright boy argued the point with her. claiming that such a thing was possible. ” Very well, then,” said the teacher, " give me a sentence without a predi- cate.” “ Thirty days,” was the reply. —Judge. An old Scotsman was consulting his lawyer as to whether or not it was advis- able for him to take action against a certain man. He placed all the facts of the case before the lawyer, who, after he had finished, told him that he had a very good case to bring up, and would undoubtedly win. “ Ah. weel,” replied the Scot, ” I’ll no be taking action, then.” Why not? ” asked the lawyer. “ Weel, d'ye ken, it’s ma opponent's case I've laid before ye! ” —Judge.

You are about to retire to deliberate upon THE VERDICT, for you are the sole judges of the facts—and the Year Book. You have heard all the evidence in the case, and, those among you who have labored through it to this point are to be commended for your patience and your school spirit. I charge you, gentlemen, that if you find therein glaring sins of omission or commission, you may con- sider in mitigation thereof the strenuous efforts of counsel to achieve and to surpass,—if you should find such to be the fact. And I charge you that you must carefully weigh the evidence in deliberating upon THE VERDICT, and if the scales tip—tip they ever so slightly —in favor of THE VERDICT board, then, gentlemen, you must find for THE VERDICT board; but if they tip—tip they ever so slightly—in favor of the several de- fendants in this case, then you must find for the defen- dants. But if, on the other hand, gentlemen, the scales hang in the balance, then this case must come up before this tribunal at the next term—in 1924.

They are on great generators used by electric light and power companies; and on lamps that light millions of homes. They are on big motors that pull railway trains; and on tiny motors that make hard housework easy. By such tools electricity dispels the dark and lifts heavy burdens from human shoulders. Hence the letters G-E are more than a trademark. They are an emblem of service'—the initials of a friend. One Hundred Seventy-sevenNEW YORK STATE NATIONAL BANK OF ALBANY, N. Y.
