The members of the Class who are but the seeds of budding lawyers have met with various fates. Some students have fallen by the wayside of examinations, and some have been unable to continue because of various circumstances. Originally we were 'dfty seveng but even with the addition of Ma1'sh and Herrick, who were not with us in the first year, we are now only forty. It was in September of 1928 that we first came together. The Lancaster 1 Street School building was still in use, and it was there that we received our first instructions in the law. Shortly after the opening ceremonies, Mr. Fitzpatrick explained the unforgettable "Infants 50,2 and in a few more days, when Mr. Kelliher assigned his first three cases in Domestic Relations, our interest in law promptly increa.sed. After months of cross-examination on the cases assigned, we were convinced that to arrive at the right answer we had to go through a process of mental gymnastics, and this conviction remained until the last of the Senior Year when it dawned upon us that it was usually cerebral inertia when we gave the "Rule in Massachusettsn. For the first few weeks the briehng of cases occupied most of our time, but in due time Freshmen Class elections were held. Though the struggles at the nomina- tions and the polls were bitter, the battles brought out closer friendships and con- tacts. Sam Hesson was elected president by a scant margin, and his diplomacy I soothed the disgruntled campaigners. At the start of our second year a serious problem confronted us. The New Scotland Avenue School was so new and so ideal that at first no one felt altogether comfortable, and it was some time before the yearning for the old building left us. It seemed a desecration to act as carefree in the new building as we had in the old school. But, with the coming of winter and the games in the gymnasium, our opinion was changed. The Cla.ss Leagues were organized in volleyball and basketball, and the contests played were more replete with enthusiasm than with physical endu- rance. The Class of 1930 finally won in both Leagues but only after keen competition and many bruises. In the second year we chose Ernie Mo1'ris as our leader and he proved to be a wise choice. Due perhaps to the fact that there were adequate accommodations in the new building, our social activities increased during this year. The Dean's Reception was the first affair, and this proved to be even more enjoyable than one held in the Ten Eyck Hotel in the previous year. After the mid-year examina- JS a I 1 -nn-I-li i l.lnn--luii I -K il lllQ-QI. I. :. xi- 5 I.. IlliJl1::5.lllllllllJ....n! -1-- CW JDLVI a ia ra c Jilraaz I l """l'l' i I-ll:-..

The Forum Smoker was another of the activities which proved highly entertaining, Mr. Rosbrook, the Instructor in Corporations, died during our Junior year after a very short illness. In addition to being a teacher of exceptional ability he had been the Faculty Advisor of Chancery, and had presided over its Trials. His passing was deeply mourned by members of the Class. Finally we became Seniors, and instead of following the accustomed practice of becoming dignified, the opposite was true. The extra Practice class for "Yes" or "Nou questions became a period of general warfare, and no few insults and batteries were perpetrated there. Brief cases and esoteric articles of clothing were spirited away from the owners by means of a mysterious but efficient underground rail- roadg and nail files became weapons to be used in combat. But, despite the influence of the nursery rhyme period, the Senior Class elections went off much more quietly than the balloting had in the past. Homer Peters was elected to the presidency with very little opposition. By this time the love of strife seemed to have worn off, so far as politics were concerned. Chancery and Devil's Own, both exclusively Senior Fraternities, were the most active of those in school. The Chancery Society held a complete circuit of mock trials in which every member of the Fraternity had an opportunity to act as attorney. Mr. Rogers, the new Faculty Advisor, and Dean Alexander, and Judge Rogan of the lVIunicipal Court of Albany presided at these trials. Among the high points of these trials were the conviction of Mountain and the finding that Hanley kept a speakeasy. Devil's Own adopted the policy of having guest speakers at the semi-monthly luncheons. These speakers were usually specialists in some department of the law and proved to be instructive as well as entertaining. The activities of these two organizations were confined mainly to the first semester. At the start of the second semester the interclass athletic games in volleyball and basketball were commenced. At the present writing the outcome of these leagues is still i11 doubt. The Seniors gained the Championship of the Suicide Basketball League for the first half, and are expected to repeat in the second cir- cuit because of their recent victory over the Freshmen, 13-ll, when they came from behind to overcome a five point lead. The Freshmen, however. have clinched the first half laurels in volleyball by trouncing both of their opponents. No history of the Class would be complete without mention of the smoking room discussions. VVe came there from the classroom or the library with the inten- tion to remain there five minutes, and then usually stayed for half an hour in voicing an opinion upon whatever question was under debate. or in pitching nickels. Any topic from a liaurel-Hardy comedy to the Statute of Perpetuities could and would be orally dissected without any decision ever being reached, any victory in arffument ever being conceded. or any humor ever being admitted to be such. U D The Deans Reception took place in the Autumn. with several splendid enter- .ill Ill Qlll - - """l 'i " I i l""""""" 1 l".' "' I iz.. l ei "ILE li E: II lllll"..ll i c jmv aa tae sexi 1 I i tainers performing, and also with several not so splendid spurts of Warbling on the part of the student body. Mr. and Mrs. Rogers had many informal Sunday night luncheons in order to acquaint the various members of the Classes with each other, and these entertainments were successful. But most of the activities of the Seniors will come after Easter when We are having our Hnal hours in school. The Senior Class Banquet is being arranged by Chairman Jim Carroll. George Curley, Chair- man of the Senior Ball Committee, is planning to have the last social gathering one that we will long remember. Then, finally We come to the goal of three years of study,-Graduation. Then of course We point for the Bar Examination, but until after Commencement, and we have our sheepskin Hrmly Within our grasp, the Bar is still in the distant future. Like all students attending schools or colleges We have had our yearnings to be out in the world and to be working. But doubtless We Will become retrospective soon after we have left the walls of Old Albany Law School. The memories we now have of our triumphs will outweigh those of our disappointments, and we will cherish the pleasant memories always. It may seem strange to predict that there will come a time when each one of us will look back to the years spent here and say, "Those were the happy days". But when this happens, if this history can serve to recall those memories to the retrospective one, then it has served its purpose. J 7 .60 Y . K, 'X,I Q. .-'L itil' af ca jntvc as tae 161, aan ff: i I F Prophecy of the Class of 1931 OR weeks I had striven vainly to find someone who knew what was to become of the Class of '31. Fortune-tellers, crystal-gazers, palm readers, spiritualists- all have listened to my importunings, and all alike had refused to assume any responsibility in the matter. Nowhere could I find a seer with the courage of his convictions, and it seemed finally as tho, our class prophecy would consist of but three words, "Time will telln. The dead-line drew near and I racked my brain for an idea. The C. P. A. had made that a vain search also, Imagination was dead and interred forever, somewhere between Passive Trusts 1 and Q. Dazed and bewildered after reading Conkling v. Weatherwax, I sat listening to Coon-Saunders while the hands of the clock reached for small numbers again. Despair enveloped me, for the day was a.t hand when mine Editor-in-Chief would demand an accounting, and I had nothing to offer. But as I sat there, Mother Nature came like an angel, shooing away little devil conscience, mistress law and young Dan Cupid, took me in her arms like a child and drew her kindly mantle of sleep over my eyes and thoughts. But not for long did oblivion visit me. I dreamed. I nightmared. With cold sweat breaking out all over me, I was pleading the case of a saloon-keeper before U. S. District Judge Brown and I knew he was death on prohibition offenders. He frowned terribly upon me and smiled benignly at Federal District-Attorney Jacob- son, the merciless enemy of racketeers. Just as sentence was being imposed upon my luckless client everything faded. Then I saw a huge figure in dark robes towering over me. It drew fearfully near, seemed about to crush me-then I saw the face- smiling, and breathed easily once again. 'Twas County Court Judge Mosher- entering the court-room-and taking the bench for a Special Term. Unnoticed I stood behind his chair and saw and heard all-like a ghost. The court was filled with familiar faces-all looking prosperous and happy. There was Ernie hflorris. of lVIorris, Morris, Morris and lVIorris-QLeo Kane of counselj for the N. Y. Central in an ejectment action. Newton Herrick, retired surrogate, was there looking on and apparently enjoying the proceedings. At first I couldn't recognize his companion -but discovered after a close study that it was State Comptroller Steiner walking slowly down the hall, chatting with Justice Conley. And then by the merest chance. I glanced over the clerk's shoulders. and my eye was caught by familiar names on the calendar. Jim Carroll's name was there. attorney for the pretty plaintiff in a divorce action, but I knew he had his hands full, for his opponent in the action was "Dom" Streppa, representing a wealthy client whom I knew to be Yice-l'rcsi- -,A QI lfr H ,I F 1 ann I an '-tan-u 1llSll 1 I I ll i 1 ll I 'V , , I 5: gf- 5 I..

Carroll had moved for a preference on the calendar, but Judge Allan had denied it. When I tried to scan the list closer it faded-and I was in the State Capitol Restaurant, crowded as usual but I seemed to be able to pass thru and around people without taking up space or attracting attention. Hearing a name I knew, I turned to a table where four men, obviously politicians were sitting. There were Senators Hanley and Wemple, their boss "Ruben Lazarus, the unofficial Governor, and Assemblyman O'Rourke, all engaged in a lively discussion over the recent investigations by that fearless little District-Attorney DeCamilla. In another corner I recognized City Court Judge Buhrmaster of New York City and Ahlheim, cor- poration counsel for Old Gold Tobacco Company, Spira, the "policy racket- buster" of Schenectady, and Fitzgerald, leader of the Fitzgeralds of Utica made up the foursome at that table. Feeling hungry, I ordered a veal cutlet. As usual nobody heard me, and I stood looking around for other familiar faces. I saw none, and was about to leave when in walked another District-Attorney-this time it was Gloning from Gloversville, with Chittenden, the Territorial Manager for the Underwriters Association of Syracuse. I bumped into Gloning, or rather he gave me the shoulder. I started a right from the floor-then everything went black. After what seemed an eternity I found myself at the University Club in New York City, at a weekly luncheon of Albany Law Men. Curley was there and looking as tho' his up-state practice yielded a sweet return. Sam Hesson, lecturer at Columbia Law, presided and strange to say Jim O'Reilly and his able assistant Brennan were present. I ove1'heard J im say the trip to New York was a success after all, for he'd finally secured a copy of the Mirror autographed by Winchell. Loeser, Merchant Marine Board Counsel, and Effron and Goldberg of Poughkeepsie were there on their weekly escape to the White Way. Sally Leombruno, counsel for Italian Democratic Club told Professor Rosenberg Cwho by the way directed the recent revision of the C. P. AJ that Mountain was South for the winterg the real surprise tho', was Charley Becker, the self-made city attorney from Rochester. How he sneaked away to New York puzzled everyone present. Joe Einhorn and McIsaacs were there of course. Their practice is large but they get away once or twice a month. This time they brought Horstman, Poly Science teacher at Union, and Homer Peters, well-known editor of Cyc. Steve and Keenan were late. They stopped in the hall to argue about a statement Waszkiewicz made in his recent lecture on Criminal Psychology before the New York County Bar Association. Steve seemed to be getting the best of it until he started to laugh and said, "Let,s eatu. Being still a ghost, food didn't appeal to me and I left. I heard a buzzing sound and awoke in the dark to find only a buzz where Coon-Saunders had been. And so to bed.

Fifty of the original sixty-eight again filed through Clem's office, parted with the summer,s earnings, were greeted by Mr. Rogers, presented with a key and faced the legal curriculum of room 17. Armstrong, Eaton, Ma.nning, Powell, and Scharping augmented our ranks and were quickly assimilated. In October, election of class officers was the current topic of conversation. 1 Budding politicians quickly attempted to organize groups for their candidates but were repulsed on every side, At the elections proper politicians were conspicuous f by their absence, and men of popular choice were selected. Tommy Lafiin, our versatile soloist was chosen as President, Pulsifer Vice-Pres., Jack Wisely, Secy.. Pop Newell, Protector of the Shekels, and Johnny Normile, representative on the athletic board. On Newell withdrawing from school in December, La Verne Baldwin was entrusted with his coveted position. ' Our first class function occurred in November in the form of a banquet at Westland Hills Restaurant. To Tommy Laffin we owe a great deal for the success of this affair. The Dean's talk will linger for many years in our memories as one of the most inspiring, instructing, and entertaining lectures of our undergraduate days in the Albany Law Schoolg besides the food was good, the cigars were mild, and Hughie,s recitations were very funny. VVe look forward to another banquet next fall. At the Dean's Reception, once again Junior talent predominated. This year, both the executive and a goodly share of the entertainment was shouldered by members of BQ. In other fields of extracurricula activities we find our class well represented. Peters, Berghash, and Normille were the backbone of the basketball team, with Moe Sargent looking to their every comfort as Assistant Manager. In debating and other societies, Juniors were very much in evidence. Mid-semester exams, occupied our attention during January and all that need be said is that we faced Crime, Equity, Public Utilities and others. Trembling hands tore open white envelopes shortly thereafter and as a result we are now forty-nine strong. But the Justinian society soon announced that Baldwin, Bar1'ett, Levine, Pulsifer, and Wisely were eligible. The Junior Class takes this opportunity to congratulate them. Friday, Feb. 13 was the evening selected for our Junior Prom, and the gym was transformed into a "veritable fairy-landw. Settees surrounded us, soft lights soothed us, the music thrilled us, the punch? stimulated us, and-well it was one fine Prom. 1 .56 l .L I I ll '--I lllllIll.J..lll' CW JQLVI IMD Mi cjnlneziz inn: I I I-:llp,lHii I' -- il lllll-ll ,Q I-.x-.I-I .I I U - gg l Harold Segal was chairman and was assisted by Baldwin, Barrett, Berghash, Laflin, lVIcKiernan, Normile, Pitt, O'Grady, Williams and Wisely.

But what a difference from the meandering paternalisrn of high school and college which led us through the abstract fields of classic knowledge. If we play now we play with our fates. High and sacred things are our toys now. Right or wrong by the width of a split hair. A little frightened, a little fascinated that we may go forth to judge our fellow men, a little warmed by the thought that we may be able to plead for them. Surprised, not a little, at the lust and greed, the love and romance, the pictures of a dim and glorious past, the sheer, pulsing humanity that springs, living and warm by contrast from the dry and musty pages of the law. For all that, however, we are a perfectly normal freshman class. One of the largest, you know, and the most promising, of course.

As a result of the reorganization the Forum undertook and carried out a very exten- sive program of discussions and debates. A new constitution Was adopted which provided for a restricted membership of individuals interested in debating and general discussion topics. The personnel of the intercollegiate debating teams Was drawn from the Forum as Well as the members of all school debating teams. The degree of success attained by the society during the past year was largely due to the help and en- couragement received from llr.

There was a wealth of splendid material this yea.r with Captain Harry Allan, Bonacker, Berghash, Peters, De Filippo, and Drake as regular members of the team. In addition to these players, Normile, Rasmussen, Reiter, Effron, Sidman, O'Brien, and Buhrmaster also saw action in the games. But despite the fine material the team was rather inconsistent, playing brilliantly in some contests, and failing to reach top form in others. lVIost of the games were played on the Law court, and few of them, with the exception of the St. Lawrence game which we won 34-33, were as close in scoring as those of the previous year. At the end of the season The Athletic Council submitted a plan for the abolition of basketball for next season, but this was voted down by the student body after a close vote. The season opened with the St. Lawrence University team playing here on December 12th. This game proved to be the most tightly fought contest of the year. Law School started off with a fast attack, and built up an early lead which it con- tinued to hold despite a belated rally by its opponents in the closing minutes. St. Lawrence threatened to overcome the lead several times, but with thirty seconds to go, the Lawyers secured possession of the ball, and held it until time was up. De Filippo. playing his first game for Law led the scoring with four Held goals and four foul shots. On the following Saturday, the Edison Club of Schenectady, with several ex- college stars in the line-up, came to Albany and handed the Varsity the worst defeat of the season, The visitors outclassed Law in every department of the game and despite the splendid efforts of the losers won easily, 415 to 28. The annual battle with Union College was renewed on January 10th, and the honors went to Union once more. The Law School second team started this game, and played upon even terms with the rival club, but when the regulars went in the College team quickly dropped in several baskets and at half time the score was in their favor Q0-6. In the second part of the contest the Lawyers outplayed their opponents and made eighteen points to nine for Union, but lost by the final score of Q9 to Q4-. A One week later the Albany College of Pharmacy proved to be an easy victim at the Pharmacy court. The Law five went into the lead at the start, and the second team played most of the second half, winning in easy style, 31-15. After the start of the new semester, our team played its first road game on February 7th, at Annan- dale, with St. Stephenis as an opponent. In this contest the team displayed its best kg, 5 Ill 1lI nn-nl li ii- in i -1uQlllll I In -I 1 5 I.. ll In ulnlu.4.::.! --- 'I I: 1 l "ll!i 3 ', - CE JDLVI is n rcr e lnlraazi form of the year. St. Stephens usually considered to be on a par with the Law teams of the past, was badly outclassed by the bewildering play of the Albanians. At half time the score was close, but at the start of the second Law increased its margin to Win by a count of 42 and 30. Bonacker garnered fourteen points to feature the game. The Cortland Normal School five had previously beaten Pharmacy College only by a very small margin, and We had hopes for a victory, but those hopes were shattered when Cortland played here on February 14. The score was tied at the end of the initial period, but the visitors were superior in the later part of the game and won out. 926-Q0. Berghash was the high scorer in the contest, and he and Emil Peters featured With their guarding ability. On February 21st, Long Island University, presenting a much stronger team than the one beaten here last year, defeated the Law School at New York City, 30-17. Harry Allan seemed to be the only player able to break through the close defense of the Winners, and he scored nine points of the total seventeen. In the Alumni game, the final one of the season, a collection of the stars of past years appeared here. Both sides used many substitutes. The superior team play and con- dition of the Varsity proved to be the Weapon whereby the Alumni were defeated, 45 to QI. For the third straight year Harry Allan led his teammates in scoring. Allan Hnished the season with a total of sixty points, and "Duke" Bonacker was a close second with fifty-three points. - INDIVIDUAL SCORING RECORDS POSITION Gr.-XIX-IES F.G. F.B. T.P.

The first debate of the year against Union University was broadcast over station VVGY. lVIr. Samuel Hesson and Mr. hlaurice Conley argued the affirma- . tive of the question for the Law School.

The following afternoon hir. Ernest lVIorris and Nlr. Francis T rombley debated against Syracuse over the radio on station WSYR. Two debates were held in lVIarch at the Law School auditorium. The Erst was against St. Lawrence University in which engagement the Law School urged the negative of the question which was upheld by Mi'. Samuel Hesson, lNIr. Eugene Steiner and lVIr. Maurice Conley. Then on March 25th the last debate of the season was held against Middlebury College in which the Law School again took the nega- tive in which M1'.

The Dean's Reception ca ltvc za ri ra ce ' larger HERE is more than just good advice in the old saying about looking a gift horse in the mouth: yet one could scarcely be criticized for having been somewhat skeptical of Dean AleXander's annual reception this year. Plain tl uth to speak, we were about as optimistic about it as we would be about opening a gift shop in Scotland. And for good reason. It was being given by the Dean, a notorious Scotchman, we were told that the tables on which the food Cfree foodl was to be served, had been constructed gra.tuitously by our own f'Scotty", whose cog- nomen denotes his pedigree: and there were to be Scotch entertainers. A formidable obstacle to getting anything without some sort of sacrifice. Yet, paradoxical as it may seem, no social event in Albany Law School this year has been so lavishly staged as this event by which the Dean demonstrates annually, what it is to entertain in the " grand mannern. There was music by our own talent,which, though We never doubted its ability, was still so far above the usual brand of musical presentation by students at the Dean's receptions, that we all expressed gratified amazement. Then, before we had an opportunity to become accustomed to such wonder, the freshmen proved their mettle as entertainers by presenting a series of gags, terpsichorean endeavors and original songs, well deserving the generous ovation which they obtained. A novel departure from the usual program of these receptions, the short film subjects presented through "Ray" Allen's efforts, proved its success by the fact that it was received in comparative silence, despite the unusual opportunity to give vent without detection to cat-calls and "Bronx-cheers U. During the interim between the entertainment and the gastronomic portion of the program, someone suggested a song, Cwe suspect hir. Allenj and the various groups executed a goodly number with an effectiveness worthy of even a louder reception than was given. A light repast, satisfying however in the number of por- tions, even the hungriest of ever-hungry law students, was served and quickly disposed of by all. It was then that we had an opportunity to take notice of the gathering. The married men, augmented in number considerably since the last reception. were there en masse with their wives. Together with the wives of the faculty and visitors. they added much to the cheerfulness which for that evening, displaced the usual monastic coldness of the law-school building. As we were leaving we tried unsuccessfully to extricate the Dean from the midst of a group of feminine admirers to give him a warning. We do it now. Fareful. Deang unless you do something to make these affairs of yours less successful. you will soon be having the struggling young alumni back in such numbers that an extra order to the caterer will be necessary.

They were noted, and are included here, without any desire or intention other than to preserve what we consider to be the quintessence of wit and rare common sense, a quality actually rare in the law and our pursuit of it, We desire to thank Mr. Ford for his consent to their reproduction, and respectfully submit them to the Class of 1931, with the earnest hope that they will in years to come, derive the profit and enjoyment from their perusal that we confidently expect. i EDITORS NOTE: The following are notes taken during the course of lectures on the law of Evidence, Chanson De Roland VVilly!e-I,ll get him yet. There's fifty of you out there and he don't pay any attention to you. I'm alone here and he's been after me for four days. Ambulance-chasers are intelligent anyway. Get right on your velocipede. Defendants aren't all angels, we all know that. And Insurance companies don't have wings. So, when you meet Lawyers needingfood and insurance companies without wings, watch out. Incompetent ambulance-chasers,-if someone said "Boo" to ,em they'd fall right over in a fit. VVhen a lawyer summing up wants to be smart, he says--"in the language of Mr. Justice Wasserwogela',. You can't blow hot and cold in the same breath-nor half a dozen breaths for that matter. I VVhen all the witnesses agree on details, thereis been some shennanigan going on. If you become confused as we go along,-stop! and get unconfused. Prostitutes are notorious liars. Anyone who has had any dealings with them knows that. I know all about them. For Eve years before the war, I was local officer of Department of Justice and met thousands of them, and they're no good. The poor District Attorney can't pick his witnesses. Some of these gun-men are tailored up in great shape and they'd stab you in the back as quick as they'd eat a piece of pie. In the back, mind you! A law suit is quite a game. It means hard work. An action well prepared is half won. Takes brains, skill and hard work. IVrite out the questions you,re going to ask. You don't have to use them. But it may save you from making a monkey out of yourself on trial. You read about brilliant cross-exams. Some astute counsel bowled over a witness, put his adversary to flight, and you think he had an inspiration, a stroke of genius. Chances are he spent weeks preparing his questions,-inquiring into history of witnesses. Wfe inquire into history of witnesses, to show that he's a bold, bad, vicious man,-Aor an unladylike woman.

You can't jump up on the table,-get all excited and spring at the witness Cfor crossing you up on storyj. CRelative Willy is around here again. If I've got to conduct this class with a fly-swatter, I will.j Read these rules over every day, until they become a part of you. Youll need 'em all your life, if you're going to be a regular lawyer. Of course if you're going to be a pot-walloper you won't. I can almost say them myself. If I read them for ten years more I'll know them myself. The common-law says "No", "Nein" in German. In Russian it would be "Nietchzke", if there were any Russian common-law. Remote Evidence: That deceased was an infidel to sustain a claim suicide. I should think it would be just the reverse. If there's no God therels no one to forgive him---or punish him. CItls all too remote for mel. And prejudicial. Suppose therels a good old bigot on the jury. Held say "He's guilty and well not discuss the proposition". Worth is not determined by looks. For which we are all very happy. You clon't have to know any law to try law-suits. All you need is skill in handling men and things. The court will lay clown the law, fairly well in a majority of cases. The jury doesn't pay much attention to the charge, anyway. In the first place they don't understand it. In the second, they donlt pay any attention to it. And I don't blame them. You hear a lot about rich man's justice. Don't run away with that idea. Itls the poor men who get justice, and a little more. There are so many things to remember, in the trial of law-suits. And that's what makes your hair gray. A law-suit's always a strain, and I don't care how many you try. Unless you have the physique of an ox, and no nerves, you canlt stand the strain of trying cases every day. VVho was telling us about something? A partner goes to a pink tea and makes some admissions. Unless the firm is engaged in the pink tea business, the admissions aren't binding. lWilly's grown up, have you noticed the size of hin1?j Books of account are books of account, as you all know. Well, it's the leading case. I'm not going to tell you to read it, you can choose for yourself. I haven't read it in years. I'rn glad to say. That's going pretty far, but they were only trying to protect the infant ward. I don't quarrel with them for protecting the ward, but why don't they say so? Question: "Just what is a title of record?" CGloningj Answer: "I don't know." fFordl Gloning: "IVell I think you'd have to know that in order to understand the rule." Ford: "Oh, don't scold me." N 1' Y figs. aries r"'!i"il::ii' if i'ai'iii" :is s IQ JDLV IR IQ ECG! CTUHLIIQEII 'rw VVhat the law is, I don't know. How to apply the rule, if I did know it, I don't know. So, I donlt know anything about it. I'd like to see this proposition go to the Court of Appeals some time, squarely presented and decided. So I'd know what to put in the notes. VVhen you get to be District Attorney, that is if you're a Democrat, there's one thing you've got to be careful of, besides being a Republican. You must not even attempt to introduce evidence which you know is prejudicial and incompetent. This lot up here belongs to Mr. Strockenbrocker. Of course, you all know Mr. Strockenbrocker. I guess I've suggested that you are never to put in an answer that's false. The temptation is great. But you don't gain anything by it, 'cause anyone who'd ask you to do that is worthless anyway. Don't do it. Dying declarations. First, you must be about to die. It's a very solemn occasion. You donit know where you're going but you're on your way. You're going to Hoat across the River Jordan into the sweet bye and bye. And human experience is that all his you're apt 'to tell the truth. Except in India. There a dying man accuses enemies of every conceivable crime. But as I said, it's a very solemn occasion. Death is approaching. If it approaches and then backs away, it isn't admissible. VVhen you feel the icy fingers, you're going to tell the truth. And only what you say as to the cause of the death. Testimony about the weather at the time is no good. I noticed cigarette stubs all the way up the stairs as I came in. I wouldnlt do it if I were you. It makes the place look bad. I felt dirty coming in here. lVIakes the janitor a lot of work and causes much cussing. Youlve got smoking rooms. Use 'em. v--In the case of such a confession-"the tail goes with the hide". In one case here, deception was practiced on some simple-minded fellow. A policeman promised him faithfully not to tell a soul, if he would confess. He did. But he was just simple, that's all. -So if you've got a conscience, and some of us have, I hope, examine carefully the evidence before you make the charge. The court will admit anything, unless there's an objection. Heis generally reading a newspaper, or looking up the results of the baseball games. He is not interested. Learn the rules, and there's no question of evidence you can't answer. You may not answer it right. but you can at least answer it and give a reason. Now, listen to this, and pin your ears right back. The courts are not infallible. Sometimes they do strain themselves when they get in a hole. Judges are human. fThat is, a regular jewelry store, not a ten-cent store, where you can buy a diamond necklace for a nickel. I used to own a jewelry store. It nearly busted.

I Well, there it is. Something is wrong-either with the rule or the case, or our understanding. Probably the latter, I wish I knew the answer. Banks have a reputation for integrity. They never take your money without reason. They always have some reason. Usually it's something you sign. But the President of the bank himself may come into court, with the bank ledger, showing the account of John Smith.

CThe shop-book rulej I don,'t blame laymen sometimes for criticizing the law. How- ever, we will proceed with matters of general and public interest. Families break up and scatter. and it's an awful job to trace the heirs. The greatest thing for keeping them together is when someone of the family accumulates great wealth, and gives all the others jobs. They then stick together. They just anchor in some community. For instance, an insurance company - it's great to own an insurance company. You can put all your relatives to work. Or a General Electric. If I owned a General Electric I'd put you all to work, some in the legal department. some firing boilers. Some of you might qualify for firing boilers. January will tell. Be sure and insert a few recitals. Someone twenty or thirty years from now will bless you for saving him money. And that'll be your reward. There used to be an old fellow in Troy-he's dead now. Poor fellow. Too bad, he didn't die before he did. He put in so many recitals in his deeds that he had to be hired later to explain them. He was a foxy old fellow. I-Ie even recited mortgage satisfaction in a deed. and asked to have it recorded. And later when nobody could figure out what was meant, they'd have to call him in to ferret out the recitals. He balled up every title he touched. Poor old father. VVhen questions of pedigree come up he's just shoved aside: nothing but a hearsay witness.

I remember back when I used to live up in the country, the Family Bible used to have a place of honor in the parlor, with the horsehair fur- niture and chenille curtains. I'm a Notary Public-but my books have never been received in evidence. My official acts are few. And let me caution you, probably you've been warned about it in Ethics. Itis more Criminal Law than Legal Ethics. They overlap sometimes. But some day a big, fat, rich client, with diamonds on his shirt, etc. will be unable to come to your office. He doesn't want to climb up your stairs, or the elevator is too small, so he'll call you up and say, 'Tm sorry, I can't come down, but I left the deed on your desk. Acknowledge it, will you?', Don't do it. If he's rich enough, say, "Never mind-I'll come right down to your office." It's bad and liable to get you in trouble. Don,t ever do anything, anytime thafs going to cause you worry. Life is too short, and too sweet, to spend worrying. I-Iave your files in the office so that anybody can look through them at any time, and have nothing that you'd be ashamed of. And not because it's sweet and pure and lovely, but because you'll feel better, and when success comes you won't have to look back at some things you did, and worry and regret. You'll never need say, "Oh, how I hope that little job I pulled off twenty years ago isn't brought out, now that I'm an elder." And it isn't the things you do wilfully or intentionally. But sometime you'll make a slip, inadvertently, and walk the floor nights. CI donit mean sins of the fleshj Of course, I know you'll all do it. You won't pay any attention to me.

But here's one for you. How about using the declarations of the osten- sible parents as declarations of relationship, as evidenced by the certificate. Put that in your pipe and smoke it.

Suppose we bring in a man whose chief amusement is singing hymns while standing on his head. It's his favorite pastime, and he persists in that. Now, most of us will agree that that is not quite normal. Or suppose he says he is King of England or President of Peru. CHe'll have to be crazy to claim that.D You bring in a physician, qualify him and ask your hypothetical question, which must include only facts proved. For example, you will ask him, if he saw a man standing on his head singing "Lead Kindly Light" on Wednesday, on Thursday, he stands on his head and tries to sing two songs at once: on Friday he claims to be President of Peru, what opinion would he form as to that man's rationality. Now, let me give you a little word of warning and advice. Insofar as it's advice, I know you won't pay any attention to it. But anyway, if you have a diffi- cult case, don't be afraid to ask for help, and be willing to pay for it. Your client may be poor-but, after all, he may have only one law-suit in his life, and it means a lot to him to win. So, don't be afraid to hire the best talent. Get the best engineer- the best doctor. You know there are doctors and doctors and doctors. Some of the best are the poorest witnesses. But often in a small town, the doctor is an authority. ill Everyone believes everything he says.

You're on top of the chimney looking down. I think they were building something, anyway they dug trenches CSicj and filled them with cement. The trenches were narrow and the soil was ha1'dpan. If you've ever had any experience with hardpan, you know itls as hard as rock-when wet. When it dries out the soil crumples, and thatls what happened here, and the man was injured. The question was whether or not it was properly shored. It seems to me that all the expert had to do was to describe the usual and ordinary methods of shoring, the formation of hardpan, the effect upon it of water, etc. . G X: a I1 fh-me y . - f W Y : .f F e n c H Finn V. Cassidy A, Illustrated by Ford, J. The courts will not take judicial notice of foreign law. They admit their ignore ance of it-unlike domestic law. It must be proven and pleaded. On an indictment for selling obscene literature, expert evidence as to its obscenity is inadmissible. We'll pass that without comment. Of course, it's more effective to relate in detail the extent of plaintiff's injuries. Get the physician to testify to every ache and every pain your client suffered. Have him describe the treatments, how they had to place him in a plaster cast-and break his legs seven times to get them straight, etc. The more blood you spill, the larger will be your damages. Some lawyers get so intent on injuries and agony that they forget to prove negligence. And it's getting so that if you have enough of a case to get by the court, and avoid a non-suit, youlre reasonably sure of a recovery. That's the tendency nowadays, to indemnify anyone who is injured, whether technically the defendant was negligent or whether plaintiff was at fault. Of course, that's not the court's stand. But it's the jury's and it's a good thing too. Modern sentiment is that a person who is injured should be paid. In that respect juries are 'way ahead of the courts' stand. So magnify your facts. I've seen some And I've seen defendants lawyer start in and cross-examine him on the injuries ask a few dry, impersonal questions and then say, "That's all, Doc-tor". 51,2 l I Ill ill: ii, an i -lll1Q-all I ll 1. 1 5 ..

It's the facts that win a majority ofyour cases. In the meantime you might study a little law, although the court will usually take care of the law. Not as well perhaps as you might do it, because you have a chance to study it, where he has to decide upon the spur of the moment. It's surprising how often they're right. So, remember, a pint of facts is worth a bushel of law. Of course, three stenographers cost money. But when it's important we can't spare expense. If you have a witness up in Illattsburg. how are you going to get him here by to-morrow morning? Use the telegraph or telephone. Or send up a man after him, to grab him and bring him down. Bring him on the train, and if he has to travel in a parlor car, let him. Let him come in a parlor car or club car or a balloon if he wants to. Whats a hundred dollars when a thousand hangs in the balance? Don't ever be penurious with your client's money. You put your expert on the stand. Your adversary admits he's qualified. You think he's very generous. But he has deprived you of the opportunity to place before the jury the reputation and experience of the expert. If he is very competent and skilled, you should impress the jury with that fact. He may be a weazened, dried-up little old fellow who wouldn't impress even a cop, and unless you let them know how smart and capable he is, they're apt not to take much stock in what he says. So ask him how many degrees he has, if any, or how many sky-scrapers he's built, or whatever it is he is an expert at. Testimony in a law-suit doesn't read like a classic. Most criminals are dumb. They must be stupid or they wouldn't be criminals. There's lots easier ways to make S100 than holding someone up. Of course the really intelligent criminal commits forgery, or sells you stock. That takes brains. But imagine murdering another human being for 581001 Wfhy, it's absurd. But they do it. just because they don't know any better. There are some rotten business men among criminals. Suppose defendent says, "I didn't know what I was doing. llly mind was a blank. I had pains in the back of my head-my vision was obscured.

"It isn't!" And so they decided it by a vote. and logic yielded to brute strength. Of course brute strength doesn't do us much good. I were on the jury, I'd say, "Oh, give him a hundred dollars".

Dr. Parkhurst,-haven't heard of him in a long time. VVonder if hels dead. Have I any of you ever heard of him? No? Then he must be dead. You'd have heard of him if he weren't. On the question of market value, only the evidence of recent sales is competent. Evidence of a sale from the patroon is no good. Where the price was a bushel of Wheat and six fat fowls, it doesn't help much in attempting to prove present market value. Why, that's just what I want to know. You tell me. My mind is a blank. You fill it. If your client is rich, or has rich relatives, land thatls just as goodj, get a real expert. You march into court followed by half a dozen clerks carrying huge volumes,-and they build a sort of wall around the witness chair. Then he picks one up, preferably right side up, although for his purposes it doesn't make much difference. Then he asks the Doctor on the witness stand if he has read so-and-so,s Work on such and such. "Yes". "Do you agree with him when he says"-- Cquoting the workj "No". Then repeat this with several other books. Another way to do is to take down another 'very ponderous volume. Then ask him if he's familiar with "Roach on Bones". If he says he is, say "I read you a paragraph from that work on page 5207 Then you read something that isn,t there, and say, "Do you recall that passage?', :'Yes". "Do you agree with that?" g'YeS,,. Then turn the book around, show him that there is no such passage, and that the book isn,t "Roach on Bonesn, and that Roach never wrote such a book anyway. Of course you can't fool ,em all that way. Most of them are wise to that trick, from sad experience. But if you get an old country doctor, you,ll probably succeed with that ruse. ' Of course, you should tell your stenographer that whatever goes on in the office is privileged-that she is not to go home and tell the neighbors what goes on. And law clerks. They used to do that. I remember when I started studying law, I was with an old gent, of the old school-he was sixty-five when I met him-and he took me aside and gave me a lecture on privilege. And there's no reason why they shouldn't do that. You know how a stenogls tongue wags. She gets out to some pink tea, and fairly busts with the news that so-and-so's wife is about to get a divorce. And doctors too. Some of them come home and tell wifey everything. I know one who lost a lot of business and prestige that way. You shouldn't discuss your clients' problems that way. For wives will talk. Thatis just my opinion. If you donlt agree, why when you get out, you take it e Court of Appeals, and Illl put their decision in my notes. or 2 I..

Sometimes people come into your office who have never had occasion to consult a lawyer before, never engaged one, or had any dealings with one. It is a big moment in their lives. I hope, if you ever get any like that, that their friends have told them they'll be expected to pay a retainer. VVell, help yourself to the reasons. There's a bushel of them. VVe can't be stingy with reasons so near Christmas. Real Evidence: Plaintiff loses a leg. You bring it into court, nicely mounted on plush, and garnished with blood. Of course, it.'s plaintiff's leg, and he can pro- bably identify it. Except for wear and tear, itis in the same condition as of the time of the accident. But it is not admissible because it would shock or prejudice the jury. Often organs or parts of the human body are brought into court pre- served in alcohol. Then the attorney for the plaintiff will accidentally knock the cover off the object, exposing it to the view of all. He probably won't notice it for a few minutes, then he'll make a hurried dive to conceal it. Don't do that. Win your case on the merits, and properly, or lose it the same way. But don't try to be cunning. About questions to the jury. If you ask them one question you're all right. But if you ask them two or more, and it is possible for an inconsistency to creep in, the jury will give two or more inconsistent answers. Of course, that's none of my business, because that is a question of practice.-But about those questions, I said it was none of my business, but I'm not afraid of butting in anywhere. So, remember those two things. If you can get all the information you want in one question, don't ask two. Make it as simple and comprehensive as possible, but ask only one. If you don't, you'll find yourself up a tree. Over and over again Ifve seen juries answer Question One in the affirmative, making the only logical answer to Question Two a negative, and then calmly decide to answer the second in the affirma- tive also. And there you are. So put it all in one question. Thatis the first bit of advice. Second, if you are the plaintiff, don't ask any questions of the jury. Of course, if you are the defendant, you'll probably want to get the record filled with error. Even in the case of a release under seal, if it was obtained by fraud, you can prove that, no matter how many "Know All Men By These Presents", and "In The Name of God, Amen's" you have in it. CAlice, where art fl1OL1?l You cannot show failure of consideration in a deed under seal, to defeat the deed. But that's like trying to prove a horse hasn't five legs. I-Ie doesn't need five legs. IVell, there's some difficulty along the line here. and I guess you know as much about it as I do. Not that that amounts to a great deal.

The question in that case was whether the plaintid was nine feet tall. The court discussed the point at some length and then very solemnly announced that if the plaintiff was actually nine feet tall, it was very extraordinary. After reversal, and upon the second trial, the witnesses will probably change their stories to produce the facts indicated by the Court of Appeals as essential for a verdict. And if you're a defendant, don't think you're going to have the plaintiff thrown out of court, merely because his witnesses have changed their stories. That's a constitutional privilege of every citizen,-to swear to anything he pleases at any time he pleases. They say, "fools and children tell the truthw, and it's true,-about children, anyway. A lawyer makes a Nturrible witness". Never mind what the court said. VVhat do you think about it? Good, I'm of the same mind. The case comes directly within the statute, but the court said it was not within the SYJ?i'7"l'f of the statute CSec. 347, C.P.A.j and so was admissible. But if you get a case like that, apply the rules as you know them. If the spirit is there, and you can get it working, all right. Otherwise, apply the rule. Law Students Credo That 7,658 cases are assigned during the three years. That nobody ever did every case assigned. That lNIr. Ford assigns at least nine cases per day.

That Union College men are all politicians. That nobody ever made any money as a lawyer. That Mr. Ford makes up his jokes before class. That it must be nice to be a Senior. That the Dean is always correct. That I will study during vacation. That lNIedina knows what is going to be upon the bar. That Devilis Own and Chancery are deadly enemies.

ALEXANDER GOLDBERG Many there are, mix'd up among the rest, With genius, taste, and soundest judgment blest, Whose powers given by nature with liberal hand, Wait but a genial season to expand. JAMES HANLEY Skillful, acute, in legal lore profound, In close reasoning's art-he stands on lofty ground. From misty error,s dull ophthalmia free, He sees things clearly, and makes others see. NENVTON HERRICK SAMUEL A sage student, who, with a proper pride, Courteous at once appeared and dignified, With charming tone, and gentlemanly ease, Insured respect, yet never failed to please. HESSON He begins with dignity, expounds with grace, Each ground of reasoning in its time and place. HENRY HORSTMAN HAROLD Upright, sincere, laborious is this youth, Zealous he seeks and fain would find the truth, Hunts it through all the mazes of the mind Nor leaves a case or note unread behind. JACOBSON The time for honest folks to be abed Is in the morning, if I reason rightg And he who cannot keep his precious head Upon his pillow till it's fairly light, And so enjoy his forty morning winks, Is up to knavery-or else he drinks. -YJL, 107 if-'lin ilu" nii !'-:""""""' il"-'I' f , 5 .... i .ll H A - llllllll.J..E'h' -r-s F ' .. --Iu -- M ?! !?

EUGENE STEINER "Blackstone" Was his favored diet, With a dessert dish of "Kent,', And he served up bits of "Greenleaf", Every single place he went. DoMEN1c STREPPA Steady and cool, on him, from end to end, Safely his anxious client may depend, With careful tread, and nice sagacious nose Like a staunch pointer, oler his ground he goes. STEPHEN WASZKIENVICZ A Weaver of lifels tapestry He sees the shuttle glide, And learns the human misery That mars the hidden side.

Humor cannot soften nor wit divert it. Prayers avail nothing, and threats are idle. Soft words but increase its velocity, and harsh words its vio- lence. Darkness has for it no terrors, and the long hours of the night draw no drapery of the couch around it. The chamber where love and peace should dwell becomes an inferno, driving the poor man to the saloon, the rich man to his club, and both to the arms of the harlot. It takes the sparkle out of the wine of life, and turns at night into ashes the fruits of the labor of the day.
