It is inevitable that mistakes will find their way in, and for these we invoke your indulgence. The Editors. The happiest business in the world is that of making friends and no “investment” you can make pays larger dividends. For life is more than stocks and bonds and Love than rate per cent, and he who gives in Friend- ship’s name shall reap as he has spent. Life is the great Investment, and no man lives in vain, who guards a hundred Friendships as misers guard their gain. Then give the World a welcome, each day whate’er it sends, and may no mortgage e’er foreclose the part- nership of friends. — Edwin Osgood Grover PART ONE THE SCHOOL AND FACULTY NATIONAL UNIVERSITY. i | i - i m ni i i t i t_i_t ■ 1 1 i 1 ! 1 i i i • 1 1 1 1 1 1 l I i 1 1 1 1 1 • 1 • ■ ! 1 " lAIAt I 1 It ' ll ' i i » . i i i .1 i i iiii ivivK i i ivivi 192 5 THE D 0 C K E T Page 15 National University ' s Birth Certificate E it enacted by the Senate and House of Representa- tives of the United States of America in Congress assembled, That Arthur McArthur, Richard G.

UE to uncertainties of life in this vale of tears, goods may disappear and riches may take flight; but that investment which reposes within the human mind can never be reached by the sheriff’s hammer nor by the robber’s threats. There- fore, whose who choose to spend certain of their years in the storing up of those enduring cultural assets which may never be taken from them, choose wisely; and there is little doubt in the writer’s mind that the substance of this thought, to- gether with the will to render great and noble service- to members of the profession and the world at large, pervaded the minds of those earnest and far-seeing men who founded National University more than a half century ago. The University, located in the City of Washington, was first incorporated by Professor Wedgewood and a num- ber of learned associates, under the general incorporation law of the District of Columbia, by a special act (29 Statutes at large, 194). The charter was granted to the Honorable Arthur McArthur and twelve others with power “to grant and confer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees.” Justice McArthur and Honorable H. C. Cole were at that time both serving upon the bench of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, and Mr. Justice Alvey, one time Justice of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, was the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia. Among the other incorporators were the Honorable Eugene Carusi, at that time Dean of the law faculty, the Honorable Howard H. Barker, the Honorable John Goode, Attorney General of Virginia, and one time Solicitor General of the United States. The law school is not only among the oldest within the United States, but it is also one of the most reputable, thorough, and widely known. It enjoys an unusually high standing among members of the legal profession, here and elsewhere, due to the exceptionally high standards set for its faculty members, the carefully planned curriculum, and its mature and unusually ambitious student body. National University has never been officially connected with the Gov- ernment, notwithstanding the hope of the Father of his Country, that at some future time there might be a great official institution of learning at the Nation’s Capital, and notwithstanding the hopes of its progenitors. It had, however, during the early half of its existence, the honor of very distinguished sponsors, among the greatest of whom may be mentioned as Ex-officio Chancellors, five Presidents of the United States, Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland. Diplomas awarded during their terms of office bear their signatures and in most instances were personally conferred upon the winners of degrees at the public graduation exercises. They are valued beyond all price by those who were so fortunate as to receive them. The four other Chancellors of the University were Mr. Justice Arthur McArthur, Mr. Associate Justice Samuel F. Miller, of the Supreme Court of the United States, Mr. Chief Justice Richard H. Alvey, of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, and the Honorable Eugene Carusi, LL. D., | I t_ l_XI_Xt 1 ' — Ts IV ' t lX V ' tX » l v IX - ‘ i 7 sTix 1 I l ■ M ' i I ’ .I - ' 1- i i y ix ix » yix ix ' ' ' __ V . t ' x- ' iCis i 7(X x JN »x ' I I I , ” X ' t X M “ix ' ix r ' iN ix, s l ix iv x »x Page 18 THE DOCKET 192 5 all great lights in their chosen profession and men upon whom we may look with pride and whose lives and deeds may well be emulated by the present and future generations of legists. The faculty increases in size from year to year and now numbers forty. It ranks well indeed, with the best in the land. It is made up of learned judges and successful practicing attorneys who are enabled to approach the task of instructing equipped with an intimate personal knowledge and contact with the law as it is administered in the courts of the land, thereby breathing the atmosphere of life and reality into sub- jects which must otherwise amount to mere theoretical and abstract science, cold and devoid of interest. During the more than half century of its existence the school has ceaselessly labored to dispense education, principally legal, of the highest order, practical in nature and effective in the support of those glorious principles of justice and equity upon which this wonderful Country of ours is founded, and without which it must ultimately sink into the ob- livion which already shrouds the fading memories of other countries, once as proud as ours, but which failed to realize that the moment progress ceases disintegration must surely begin. The curriculum covers practically every phase of both substantive and adjective law; and the case, text and lecture methods of instruction are used with that care of selection best calculated to develop the re- sourcefulness and mental processes of the learner. A large number of the matriculants are employed by the Government of the United States. They are self-supporting and self-reliant. They are noticeably more ma- ture than the student body of the average school and association with people of this earnest and ambitious type is in itself an inspiration, an encouragement, and a valuable means of broadening one’s human experi- ence, which is by no means the least of the advantages enjoyed by our classmen. Approximately 5,000 have been graduated from the law school dur- ing the past fifty-six years of National University’s existence, and among them are many who have achieved distinction at the bar; others have become judges of national reputation, and a number are serving in the Congress of the United States. More might well be said in commendation of the Alma Mater, but in closing, it is believed sufficient to say that we, of the graduating class of 1925, consider it a privilege to know that the foundation stones of our legal training were laid in the halls of National University, and we shall take pride and pleasure in carrying on and emulating the work of the illustrious men who have been associated with the University before us. It shall be our endeavor always to elevate the profession and always to foster and improve those mental and moral qualities which make for suc- cess and which command the world’s respect and admiration, thereby remaining true to the tradition of the noble and learned calling which has been our choice. HONORABLE CHARLES F. CARUSI, DEAN. “A successful man is one who has tried, not cried ; who has worked, not dodged ; who has shouldered responsibility, not evaded it; who has gotten under the burden, not merely stood off, looking on, giving advice and philo- sophizing on the situaton.” —ELBERT HUBBARD 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 21 CHARLES F. CARUSI, A.B., LL.M., LL.D Dean of the Faculty and Professor of Real Property R. CARUSI was born in Washington, D. C., in May, 1873.

He has been Dean of the Law Faculty of National University and Professor of the Law of Real Property for many years. He is also Dean of the College of Business Administration and has been Professor of the His- tory of Common Law at American University. National University has made wonderful strides under Dr. Carusi’s guidance. He is genial, progressive, and a deep student, a fortunate combination which contrib- utes largely to the success which has attended his efforts. The school has an enrollment of more than eight hundred, which is substantial proof of public confidence in his methods. He is a member of the District of Columbia Bar, the University Club, the National Press Club and the Racquet Club, beside which he has found time to engage in some of the more important real property litiga- tion before our courts. J. ROBERT ANDERSON, A.B., LL.M. Lecturer on Government Contracts and Claims and Jurisdiction and Practice of the Court of Claims ROFESSOR ANDERSON was born in Ellington, New York, in May, 1864, and re- ceived his A. B. degree from Allegheny College, of Meadville, Pennsylvania, in 1890, and his de- gree of LL.M. from the Buffalo Law School, Buffalo, New York, three years later. Professor Anderson has but recently joined the faculty of Na- tional University, but his friendly attitude in the lecture hall and his exhaustive knowledge of his subject may well be taken as a harbinger of a long period of usefulness in the school. After graduating from the Buffalo Law School Professor Anderson was engaged in the general practice of law with the firm of Crowley and An- derson, in Randolph, New York. He practiced later in Parkersburg, West Virginia, and for the past eleven years has served in various impor- tant capacities with the Department of Justice in this city. lL_ ' _ ' ’ ' ’ ' ' ' ' ' ‘ - I I ■ I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I ) 111 I I .

C., in 1891, and attented the pub- lic schools in this city.

Professor Bastain has been a valued member of the Faculty of National University since 1916, as lecturer on Black- stone’s Commentaries and as Profes- sor of Elementary Law and Surety- ship.

BELLEW, LL.B. Clerk of all Moot Courts R. BELLEW is the genial and efficient Clerk of all the Moot Courts held in National Uni- versity Law School, in which capacity he has served for several years. He is a native of the State of Virginia, and often visits his old home, near the Shenandoah River, where he indulges in his favorite sport of angling. Mr. Bellew served as Marriage License Clerk for the District of Columbia for a number of years. In 1916 he was appointed Clerk of Equity Court Number One, of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. His daily experience in this work, together with his natural ability, has enabled Mr. Bellew to perform his duties as Clerk of the Moot Courts of National University efficiently and with promptitude. Graciously assisting the embryo lawyers through the treacherous mazes of their practice court work, Mr. Bellew has thereby added to his already long list of friends the entire personnel of the 1925 graduating class. We shall not feel entirely among strangers if some real case should bring us into Equity Number One. Page 24 THE DOCKET 192 5 TURIN B. BOONE, LL.M.

Emmons Vice-President Edith M. Cooper Secretary George R. Martin Sergeant-at-Arms tm? HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1925. m xa.s ■ - rxu THE FIRST YEAR XCELSIOR” was the motto that brought to the halls of Na- tional University, on the evening of October first, nineteen hundred twenty-two, some two hundred students in search of erudition. These disciples of Blackstone found here not one, but several, fountains of wisdom and knowledge; and there- upon they became imbued with a great determination to ex- plore all the unknown channels of their chosen profession. Undaunted by the fears which possess every freshman for the first few months, these people entered into the school activities with a zeal that has marked the progress of the class throughout its existence. Early in the term, the class met for the purpose of elect- ing officers. Candidates were eulogized, and those who re- ceived the greatest encomiums were elected, the victories being shared by the co-eds. Williard E. King was chosen President; Elizabeth S. Emmons, Vice President; Edith M. Cooper, Secretary; William E. Carey, Jr., Treasurer; Bart Clines, Orator; John Wesley Clampitt, Jr., Historian; and Charles H. Quimby III, Sergeant-at-Arms. Mr. King, shortly after, transferred his efforts to a school in his home state. This left a fair Eve to wield the President’s official gavel over a class composed almost entirely of God’s first creation, and in this manner we reverted to the plan of the world’s pristine days. The members of the class participated enthusiastically in the de- bates conducted by the Alvey and Miller societies in their first as well as in each succeeding year. “THE LAW HAS HONORED US: MAY WE HONOPv IT!” The first recesses of the fundamentals of the law which we explored were those of Agency, and generous indeed were the assignments of technical cases by Professor Bastian in this subject. The mysteries of Insurance and Sales, expounded by Professors West and MacCullen, respectively, as well as the many principles of Bailments and Carriers, with Professor Keene as expositor, were well assimilated. About this time SUBROGATION became an object of consideration, and the name of our good friend Reamer will long remain linked with the memory of this interesting phase of the law. With the approach of the first exams came misgivings and vague wonderings. The effects were manifestly different upon each student; some persecuted the text books, others voiced their forebodings to their more confident classmates, while others were calm and indifferent — appar- ently. Those who were of the last mentioned class, as well as their brothers of the verbose genus upon whom had been conferred the honors 19 2 5 Page 44 THE DOCK E T of the War College, were soon to be disturbed, however; for, into their acropolis, one evening, walked some fair followers of the Blind Goddess, arms heaped high with tomes of law. These invaders slipped quietly into chairs reluctantly vacated by the indignant members. Unconscious of the desecration they were committing, the trespassers began poring over pages of legal matter, occasionally hesitating to “sh !” the bois- terousness, which was already much hushed by their presence and by the gradual decrease in the number of habitues, who cast blighting glances as they left. There were many minds with but a single thought — “Are we to have this, our retreat, our one refuge, OUR sacred sanctuary, in- vaded?” At the end of our senior year the exclusive right and use of the sanctum sanctorum where the War College holds forth to discuss and de- cide, with much bombast, all matters, grave and otherwise, of state, poli- tics, law and science, which in the members’ estimation have not been properly settled by the respective authorities, remains unimpaired. THE SECOND YEAR | E were in our junior year ere we had the assistance of our esteemed Dean, Charles F. Carusi, in our scholastic efforts. The genesis of the law of Real Property was unfolded to us by such exegetical statements as this : “The very great nicety about the insertion of the word ‘heirs’ in all feoffments and grants, in order to vest a fee, is plainly a relic of the feudal strictness; by which we may remember it was required that the form of the donation should be punctually pursued.” Professor Thomas H. Patterson, the gentleman from “daoun home” where they still “swap hosses” and “nail daoun” buildings, taught us that an infant is not liable on his contracts and that the reign of “Old Harry the Eighth” not only endowed history with spicy romance, as we thought, but simplified the law of Real Property by perpetration of the Rule in Shelly’s Case, and we were introduced by the amiable Roger O’Donnell to the noble Six Carpenters and the hoosegow in the law of Torts. Conrad Syme, in his endeavor to ex- pand our knowledge of partnerships, Criminal Procedure and Municipal Corporations, discussed the Munn case, woman sufferage, rent legislation and domestic relations without reserve. Professor Hayden Johnson, whose memory for dates and command of the units of expression are amazing, let the light of his knowledge of Criminal Law and Equity shine upon the class. Equity aims, in fact, at that kind of relief which is known in Roman Law as Restitutio in integrum, and of the law he says, “Quaecunque intra rationem legis inveniuntur, intra legum ipsam esse judicantur.” It is all quite simple, so sayeth Mr. Johnson. Not less pleasant were the hours spent in the sessions on Equity Cases and Admiralty with Justice Charles H. Robb, admired and esteemed by all. Mention must be made of Turin B. Boone, who also was a real friend to the class; he worked hard for us, danced well with us, and will be permanently associated with our pleasant memories of the school. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 45 Justice Siddons, who completed his twenty-fifth year of continuous service with the University as we concluded our junior work, supplied us from his exhaustive knowledge with the fundamental principles of Negotiable Instru- ments and Evidence, which were made vastly more interesting by his sagacious remarks and ready wit. The Inez Milholland Chapter of the Na- tional Woman’s Party was established dur- ing our junior year. Campaigning for class officers was much more vigorous this year, and the interest was appreciably greater. Those elected were R. F. Camilier, President; Paul E. Jamieson, Vice President; Chester H. Gray, Secretary ; Mabelle E. Ellis, Treas- urer; Elizabeth S. Emmons, Historian; Annabelle Hinderliter, Orator; and Roger E. Davis Sergeant-at-arms. During an orgy between the “novices” and initiates of one of our fraternities, some shots (?) were fired and Herald employees rushed in to get the startling “scoop” for their headlines, but, alas, their efforts were in vain. Whether the trial for a murder committed in the hall, which was so ably conducted in the Moot Court by six of our promising barristers, was an issue of this event, is still conjectural. The junior class dance was held at the New Willard Hotel, where the versatility of the students was displayed by their ability to do the Mexi- can Jumping Bean Dance quite as well as they bombarded their professors with questionable interrogations during class periods. THE THIRD YEAR [ HE election of class officers for the senior year was everything but pacific. Epithets were hurled about, and all candidates were well dusted. Out of the chaos came our President, D. J. O’Brien; Vice President, Elizabeth S. Emmons; Secretary, Edith M. Cooper; Treasurer, Lee F. Denton; Historian, Sarah Wheeler Sechrest; Orator, G. M. Moore; Sergeant-at-arms, G. R. Martin. When the dust had settled peace and harmony reigned once again. A course in Medical Jurisprudence was added to the curiculum and Dr. Hickling, who is an expert alienist and believes that only one-half of one per cent of the human race is normal, taught the subject. Even the learned Justice Siddons says that he has a fear every time Dr. Hickling comes into his court room that he will pronounce him a subject for obser- vation. What must Dr. Hickilng think of us? Professor Rathbone, Member of Congress from Illinois, faithfully ex- pounded proper methods of winning cases, and we recognize the voice of experience when he speaks. His friendly Western manner won a room full of friends before the first lecture started. The annual War College Smoker at Harvey’s was well attended. The members, thinking this would afford a better opportunity to exhibit their oratorical skill, appeared in their best trappings and proceeded to exercise their Ciceronian proclivities. After the smoke, etc., had cleared away it was conceded that the event had been a rare success. Page 46 THE DOCKET 192 5 The belligerent duties in the areopagus of the University, under the guidance of Professor Glenn Willett, offered the first opportunity to put our newly acquired knowledge into use. He was, indeed, patient and painstaking. There were many interesting and amusing situations in the Moot Court Practice. One legist insisted, in spite of the protests of the Court, that he wanted “to demur to this stuff” ; and another solemnly in- formed the court and jury that the defendant stepped on the speedometer. Elaborate preparations were made by the prosecution in the murder trial held early in the year. Lantern slides were exhibited to the jury to show the heinousness of the crime. Upon the evidence, the defendant, Kilroy Gunn, was found guilty of manslaughter and sentenced to three years at hard labor, which, no doubt, will be his first three years of practice. The manslaughter case is one to be remembered also ; it was vigorously prose- cuted and quite as well defended, which was evidenced by the fact that the jury was equally divided. The memory of Zaechaeus of Old, Officer O’Hennesy, and Miss Clara Kidd, will remain with us for time to come, and the friendly mirth elicited on proper occasions by the efforts of the bar has served well to temper us for such court room tests as the future may have in store. As this cycle nears its end there is a mingled feeling of joy and sorrow — joy because of the achievements that time has brought us, and sorrow because of the parting of friends and the passing of the class of 1925, our class. Our disagreements and violent vituperations have only drawn the ties that bind us as fellow students more closely. Soon each will be pur- suing his or her chosen profession, somehow, somewhere, making foot- prints in the sands of time, for — Not enjoyment and not sorrow, Is our destined end and way, But to act that each tomorrow, Find us farther than today. •v5Al ! | ? • ' A|X| !V N| ' xixxfAi ArXr -nT- ' ' 2J l — t t , i i . i i _ i i . i i i i i i i i , ! i . i i i i i i i i i i i i i ■ i i i i i i I iii i i i i i i . i I : i i i i i i 1 9 2 5 THE DO C K E T Page 47 EDNER C. ALGIRE Union Bridge, Maryland OW comes our good friend, Edner C. Algire, C.P.A., B.C.S., and candidate for the LL.B., and while he is master of one honor- able profession, will soon attach an- other, that of attorney at law. The word failure is not in his vocabulary. Our able classmate received his early education in the public schools of Baltimore County, Maryland. Believ- ing that to attain great heights he must stai ' t life as a meek and lowly farmer, he tried his hand at this ; then came the city call to business, where a somewhat broader scope of vision ap- peared. Now his ambitions have re- vealed the lofty combination of Law and Accounting. His noble aspira- tions are well disclosed in his choice of these professions. His accounting- knowledge was acquired at the Balti- more Business College, at Washing- ton School of Accountancy and by means of graduate work at American University in 1922. He won his C.P. A. in 1923. Edner C. has a wonder- fully congenial life companion, and is a big brother to his daughter and son. He is a Royal Arch Mason, a member of Dawson Lodge (Masonic) , the Ionic Club, Treasury Department, and Alpha Sigma Alpha Accounting Fra- ternity. At present he is employed as a Consolidated Reviewer in the In- come Tax Bureau. SILVERIO P. ALMIRANEZ Mauban, Philippines 4 4 UKE” was born in 1898, and I J like thousands of his con- temporaries in the Philip- pines, grew up to school-age con- sciousness at a time when American ideals and principles began to mani- fest themselves in the lives of the people of the Philippines. The sharp contrast between conditions under the constitutional American adminis- tration and those of the preceeding centuries of Spanish misrule did much to shape the temperament and inclination of Almiranez, and has made him an interested student of Constitutional and International Law. His questions in the class in Inter- national Law indicate a deep interest in diplomacy. “Duke” was with the Class of 1923 at National, but, due to illness had to leave school and has now joined the Class of 1925 as a candidate for the LL.B. degree. He was counselor of the Philippine Collegians and has taken a most active part in the Fili- pino Club. “Duke” is fond of dancing and a lover of good music. The good will of the Class of ’25 goes with him.

He served in the Army during the World War, rising from private to First Lieutenant and now holds a commis- sion in the Reserve Corps. He is an ardent baseball fan and a thorough student of the law, as witnessed by the fact that he is a candidate for both the LL.B. and LL.M. degrees. We do not know his plans for the future, but judging from his energy and present record of accomplish- ment the prediction of success is no mere guess. JOSEPH J. ARDIGO Washington, D. C. 4 4 7 OP” was born in Washington, J D. C., in 1897, and spent his early days here. Being of French parentage, he had a curiosity to see what the “Old Country” was like, and, when a youngster, visited it for about two years. He received his early education at St. Patrick’s Academy, and later attended Busi- ness High School, Strayer’s Business College and St. John’s College. After leaving school, he was emploved in the Panama Canal Zone for four years. Joe is a member of Spalding Council No. 417, Knights of Columbus, and for three consecutive years was elect- ed to the office of Chancellor of that Council. Golf is one of the old boy’s favorite pastimes, and he can often be found chasing the elusive pill on the links. We understand that he is also a good baseball player, having seen much service with the sandlot teams of Washington. The law held out a beckoning hand to Joe, and in 1922 he entered National. He is a candidate for the Bachelor’s degree, an excellent student and an all around good fellow. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 49 CLYDE S. BAILEY Washington, D. C. C LYDE still claims membership in the War College, but the counterclaim is that his spon- taneousi outbursts, proclaiming the Darwinian Theory, his holding five successive scholarships from the cos- mopolitan scholastic organization of selected students known as the Telluride Association, and the “slow picture” accuracy with which he wields the “pasture stick,” have qualified him for even higher things. Clyde has a cozy cottage on the river, where he spends many happy hours during the summer months. His heavenly blue eyes are assurance that he need not lack for the com- panionship of the fair sex. He has a desire to practice law in the West. He cannot use a launch to cross the country, but motoring also being a hobby, how fortunate will be the one to enjoy that trip to his “Little Gray Home in the West!” Clyde has his LL.B., and now takes the Master’s degree. He has been a diligent ambitious student who will surely win success. FLORA BASSETT Washington, D. C. T HE modest lady of the picture is one of our few real Washington- ians. She was born and reared in the Capital City, although she re- ceived her early education in the pub- lic and private schools of Maryland. At present she is occupied during the day in the Departmental service, and she divides the time remaining be- tween classroom work, “digging out” the law in the library and music, in which her affections are divided be- tween piano and organ. Flora is a candidate for the degree of LL.B. She is a member of the Cy Pres Club and her great ambition in life is to aid the advancement of women, which will surely be realized if sin- cerity and perseverance count for anything.

A few nlay think him plutocratic, but this is not the opinion of those who have the pleasure of really knowing him. He is a candidate for the LL.B. and M.P.L. degrees, but his further plans are shrouded in mystery. PATRICK D. BEAVERS Washington, D. C. P AT was born and reared in Washington, D. C., where he re- ceived his early education in the graded schools, Technical High School and Emerson Institute. He began his legal education at George Washing- ton University and came to National in the fall of 1922. Pat’s great de- light is to be upon the water, especial- ly in a canoe on the Old Potomac, and there are few evenings during the summer that he does not indulge in his favorite sport. Marriage, thinks Pat, is a good status for a law student — provided both parties main- tain opposite views on all subjects — for it gives fine opportunity for de- bate, but so far he has maintained his freedom. However, he says he has his cap all set for some rich girl. Pat has been interested in patent law since 1919, and at present is employed in the law office of Clarence A. O’Brien, as a patent searcher. He served for three years in the District National Guard, is a member of the Knights of Columbus, and the War College. He is a candidate for the LL.B. and expects to make his start with the “bunch”. Pat is also an artist and has contributed much to the appearance of “The Docket.” ■ ■ ■ i t I » I 19 2 5 T H E DOCK E T Page 51 HENRY NELSON BENOIT Putnam, Connecticut N the vast ocean of politics — that is where Henry Nelson is de- stined to play an important part and with him on that ever surging ocean of activity the name of his Alma Mater will float. Benoit, a clerk in the United States Senate and rubbing elbows with shrewd and learned politicians, has himself taken active part in state and national policies. He is an enthusiastic fol- lower of public speaking and law, es- sentials to a successful legal career. Henry is a member of the Knights of Columbus and Elks, and loves out- door sports, particularly golf. He has already received his LL.B degree from National and is now a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. VICTOR E. BLEECKER Washington, D. C. T EACHER, broker, engineer, patent examiner, husband and lawyer, all of these adorn the life of friend Bleecker. Receiving his A.B. from the College of the City of New York in 1918, he was licensed to teach in the public schools of the great metropolis, but instead he entered the brokerage firm of his father, hoping to follow the footsteps of his grandfather, who was one of the founders and the first President of the Wall Street Stock Exchange. The business was dissolved upon the death of his father, and young Bleecker turned his attention to engineering. He was subsequently employed as an architect in the City of New York and by the War and Navy Departments. In 1924 he was admitted to the Bar of the District of Columbia. He is now a candidate for the M.P.L. de- gree, having received his LL.B. from the Washington College of Law in 1924. These accomplishments promise a life that is bound to carve its own figure in the useful pursuits of man, and Victor goes out with the best wishes of his Class. Page 52 THE DOCKET 1925 EDWIN A. BLOSK Washington, D. C. LOSK first decided he would be an engineer. He studied engi- neering for three years at George Washington University, and became a member of the Engineering Society. He gained much valuable information and practical experience along that line while employed by the Westinghouse Electric Company, the Baldwin Locomotive Works, and several other prominent concerns; but several years ago the law beckon- ed and he could not resist it, especial- ly Patent Law work. He is a candi- date for the LL.B. and M.P.L degrees, and at the present time is a patent attorney of no mean ability. In this work his engineering experience has proven very valuable. Blosk does not spend all his time at law, for he is especially interested in track work. He has not told us his future plans, but whatever they may be, we are sure he will “make good,” and he has our best wishes. MILLARD BLUM San Francisco, California RESIDENT of California, Mil- lard came back to Washington, where he was born and received his education, including the degree of LL.B. from National in 1918. He then entered the Army and served in France during the World War, and was seriously and permanently in- jured. Upon his return from over- seas he went to California in quest of health, but again returned to Wash- ington and entered the Government service. He is now a candidate for the LL.M. degree at National. Mil- lard is a Senior Auditor in the Income Tax Bureau. Yes, he is married. He has been a diligent student, earnestly seeking to learn more of the law so he may be prepared to do service for his Country in peace time as well as he did in time of war. It is the sincere wish of his classmates that he find in life the success which he so well merits. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 53 B. ROBERT BODNER New York City OB is National’s typical New Yorker. Though he migrated from the Empire State many moons ago, his New York swagger and his New York brogue are so readily discernible even today that he can easily be singled out of the throng. He received his elementary education in New York City, graduat- ing from the DeWitt Clinton High School. He attended the New York University Law School for two years and came to National to obtain his LL.B. Bob is an accomplished del ator, and does not hesitate to demonstrate his skill in the heated battles of the War College and Miller Debating Society. He is Acting Treasurer and member of the Publicity Committee of the New York State Law Club, and Chancellor of the Alpha Beta Phi Fraternity. Bob is enjoying single blessedness — so far — and broadcasts the motto. “Love ‘Em and Leave ‘Em.” Girls, beware! Bob is perparing for the New York State Bar. and intends to practice there. His host of friends are anxiouslv awaiting his return to the Great White Way, where we are sure he will do credit to the legal profes- sion. Good luck, Bob. FREDERICK BOGUE East Machias, Maine HE gentleman pictured above is with us once more, this time as a candidate for the Master’s de- gree, which will round out an already creditable list of achievements since he took the LL.B degree last year. He is a successful member of both the Maine and District of Columbia Bars. Friend Bogue is an Elk and a mem- ber of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity.

He received his early educa- tion in the public schools of the District of Columbia, and later at- tended Staunton Military Academy, Staunton, Virginia. Realizing that a thorough knowledge of the law would be a wonderful asset in his business as real estate broker, he entered National University Law School and is now a candidate for the Master’s degree. During his sojourn at National, Bradford has been an active member of the War College, and has rendered valuable assistance to the legists of that body who are so faithfully en- deavoring to settle and unsettle im- portant questions of this country and the world. Bradford has been a diligent, conscientious student and his many friends in the school predict for him a very successful career. He is a member of the American Legion, Sons of the American Revolu- tion, Disabled American Veterans and Elks. GEORGE L. BRANNON Midland City, Alabama 4 4 L.” was born in 1881, in I j Echo, Alabama He received his early education from his father and mother, and from them learned to love books. As a result, he has assembled one of the finest pri- vate libraries in the country. From his earliest days, G.L. has had a fish- ing “complex,” and has so far succeed- ed in apportioning his time so that he will not miss his favorite sport. In 1918 he came to Washington, was a short time with the Navy Depart- ment, and since June, 1919, has been an auditor in the Bureau of Internal Revenue, specializing in the matters of Capital Stock Tax and banking and insurance companies. G.L. has found the right girl and is happily married. He is a Mason and a member of the Knights of Pythias, Past Chancellor of a Pythian Lodge in Alabama, and has served two years as secretary and several years as treasurer of his Masonic lodge in Alabama. G.L. is a candidate for the LL.B. and LL-M. degrees and plans to re-enter the hanking business in Florida, and also to practice law. He is an excellent student and succ ess will surely attend his efforts. 192 5 THE ' 1 »_f ’ » • » _ » » DOCKET t ■ 77-J7 Page 55 JAMES LaSALLE BROWN Jackson Heights, Long Island, New York 4 4 tAMES L.” was born in 1896, 1 in New York City. His early education was obtained in the public schools, De Witt Clinton High, and Cooper Union of that City. He attended the Georgetown University School of Foreign Service, and for three years served as a Supervisor of Education in the United States Army. He received the degree of LL.B at National in 1924, and is now a candi- date for the D.C.L. degree. He is a member of Mu Chapter, Sigma Delta Kappa; Vice Commander of the Warren G. Harding Post, American Legion, and a member of the Reserve Officers’ Association, United States Army. The epitome of all the at- tributes of a scholar and a gentleman, James L., while quiet and modest to a marked degree, has made many friends at National and our hearty good wishes go with him. W. DUVAL BROWN Arlington, Virginia T HE gentleman of the picture lived on a farm in Virginia as a child, his father being Country judge and later a practicing attorney as well as a farmer. He was reared in a legal atmosphere and heard many anecdotes and reminscences of the bar in Virginia subsequent to the Civil War. After leaving high school he worked with an engineering corps in the mountains of Virginia, West Virginia, and Kentucky, and on the Island of Cuba for about five years. Having studied law at the University of Virginia for two years, he was ad- mitted to the State Bar of Virginia and practiced law for three years as the junior member of his father’s firm. From 1915 to 1921 he was in the United States Consular Service, and was stationed in Peru, Italy and Bolivia. He spent almost a year in a trip across South America, going across the Andes by mule and down the Amazon and its tributaries by rafts and other crafts. Mr. Brown speaks Italian and Spanish and has a knowledge of French and Portugese. He is a member of the Phi Gamma Delta Fraternity. He has a very pleasing personality and a keen sense of humor, which will serve him well in his future practice.

BUICE Birmingham, Alabama Norcross, Georgia 4 t )UCK” was born on a farm linear Birmingham, Alabama, • ■ in 1891, and spent his early childhood days fishing, rowing, and roaming ' through unfrequented woods. While still a small boy his family moved to a nearby mining camp, where most of the mines were worked by the State and county con- victs, and there he received many pro- found and lasting impressions, especially as to hardened criminals and the extremely difficult problem of discipline. When old enough, he worked for a time in the mines, be- ginning as a trapper, and being known among the other boys as “Uncle Phil.” Previous to coming to Washington, “Buck” taught in the public schools of Alabama for three years, in the Massey Business College of Birmingham, from which he had previously graduated and in the Massey Business College of Columbus. Georgia, where, incidentally, he first met the girl who later became his wife. “Buck’s” object in coming to Washington was to study medicine, but, finding that the evening course had been abolished, he substituted law, which he intends to make his life’s profession. He is a Mason, and assisted in “putting over” this book by able work on the Subscription Committee. 4 4 j )OOTS,” or “Smiley,” the ry cross-word puzzle expert, was born at Bellton, in the red hills of Georgia, in 1892. Since that time he has held many and varied positions, which admirably fit him for success in the field of law. At the present time he is Contact Repre- sentative for the United States Veter- ans’ Bureau, assisting in the adjust- ment of claims of veterans of the late war. During the World War he attend- ed the Officers’ Training Camp at Fort McPherson, Georgia, and on August 15, 1917, was commissioned a full- fledged “Shave-Tail,” which rank he held to August 15, 1919. During that time he served eighteen months over- seas. Though of a quiet and retiring nature, “Boots” has won many friends during his two years stay at National. He is a member of the Masonic Order, National University Masonic Club, Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and the American Legion. He also served faithfully and well as University Editor of “The Docket.

Like many another canny Scot, “Andy’’ is good at figures; so, in 1891 he entered the service of the Santa Fe Railway Company at Topeka, Kansas, and there held various positions in the accounting and traffic departments of that company. In 1910 he accepted an important position with the Inter- state Commerce Commission, with headquarters in Chicago, and while a resident there took a course in ac- counting and business law in the Pace and Pace Institute. In 1920 he was transferred to Washington and is now Chief of the Depreciation Sec- tion of the Bureau of Accounts. Realizing the advantage of supple- menting his accounting experience with legal training, he followed the crowd and signed up at National in January, 1922. He is married, and is a member of Takoma Lodge No. 29. F. and A.M. : Albert Pike Con- sistory Scottish Rite, and of Almas Temple A.A.O.N.M.S. He is a care- ful and thorough student who will put his LL.B. degree to good use. SAMUEL McELROY BURGESS, 2nd Washington, D. C. URGESS is one of our old reli- ables, whose chief occupation, outside his Real Estate Title In surance business, is reading law books. He says he has read more books in the past few years than he ever before thought had been written. He received the LL.B. degree at National last year, and was among the fortunate ones who “passed the Bar.” He is now a candidate for the degrees of LL.M. and M.P.L. Bur- gess is a member of Bethesda Lodge No. 204, F. and A. M., of Sigma Delta Kappa, Mu Chapter, and of the War College. He says his bobbies are antiques and photography, fine diversions from the hard grind of the law. He has a faculty for mastering the most incomprehensible and be- wildering definitions and applying them to practical work. Burgess is looking forward to engaging in the general practice of law, and we pre- dict for him a very successful future. Page 58 THE DOCKET 1925 THOMAS F. BURKE Lynn, Massachusetts O NE cannot hope, in so short a space, to do justice to the biogra- phy of Thomas Francis Burke. Migrating, with other Irish Yankees, from the Bay State some years since, he entered the Signal Corps of the Regular Army, serving with the A.E.F. in France. Since his return to civil life he has been Assistant to the Managing Editor of the National Geographic Magazine. Tom now holds a commission in the Officers’ Reserve Corps. He served with dis- tinction as Secretary of Mu Chapter, Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity, in 1923. “Tombo” likes golf and single blessedness. Beloved of his contem- poraries, let posterity note that Tom Burke possesses fully the qualifica- tions of mind and heart which go to the make-up of a gentleman and a scholar. He recognizes, in the language of Lord Coke, that “One in the sunshine must descend deep in the well of learning to view the bright stars of knowledge overhead.” His sight of those “bright stars” is ex- tremely keen. Having announced his intention of engaging in the general practice of law, providing he will at the same time be able to eat regular- ly, we leave “Tombo,” with the LT, B . to the pursuit of a career bound to be distinguished, certain to be noble. EDWIN VINCENT BYRNE Alexandria, Virginia LEXANDRIA, having produced a goodly share of the world’s great men, keeps her hand in by sending to National “Vin” Byrne, who is one of the “younger set” of the school. Next to the law he likes best a quiet camp up the Potomac, or in the hills, with his faithful radio, and spends his otherwise spare mo- ments holding down a man-sized job in the Interstate Commerce Commis- sion. Like many another who was “cursed” with a little knowledge, always a dangerous thing, his services were called into play when his Country was in need, and he was taken overseas as an Army Field Clerk in 1917. He spent fourteen months as assistant to the chief clerk of the Fourth Division, and the rest of the time as assistant to General Pershing’s private secretary. He was awarded a citation for “excep- tional and meritorious service” in helping to make the world unsafe for Monarchies. “Vin” is single, but there are those claiming to know, who allege that this is not likely to be permanent. He is Associate Editor of ‘The Docket” and his present ambition is to carry off a degree of LL.B and to practice law as shortly thereafter as he can get a client, which will be very soon, else one of the most pleasing personalities in National is no good as an advertise- ment. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 59 WILLIAM J. BYRNE Salem, Massachusetts ANDIDATE for the LL.B. de- gree, “Bill” Byrne is a product of the rockbound New England Coast. Salem, Massachusetts, and “Bill” point with pride to each other. Versatile and likeable, high school and college graduate, some-time sur- veyor and landscape artist, he now tends his energies to auditing the elusive Income Tax for his Uncle Samuel. As a member of the crack 2nd Corps of Cadets of the Massa- chusetts National Guard, he saw service with the famous 26th Divi- sion, A.E.F., and is well known in military circles. He is an enthusiast in all out door sports, particularly hiking and swimming, having few equals in speed and endurance in the latter. His well groomed tenor voice is frequently heard in local church choirs, as well as in arguments in the Moot Court and the War College. In the Good-Fellowship League he bats second to no man, which is “go- ing some,” and as he leaves the halls of National, the good will of his as- sociates goes along also, together with the confidence that one day the senior Senator from Massachusetts will be none other than the Honor- able William J. Byrne. RENAH F. CAM ALIER Washington, D. C. 4 4 y fAMMY” was born and reared f . in the “voteless District”. He is an irrepressible optimist, and a most successful diplomat, as witnessed by five years service as private secretary to the Honorable Franklin D. Roosevelt, part of which was spent in war-torn Europe and part in the heated Presidential cam- paign of 1920. He later served as secretary to Senator Alva B. Adams, and now holds the position of Econo- mist with the Federal Trade Commis- sion. He is a graduate of the Temple School, where for five years he con- ducted the speed class in shorthand, made hosts of friends and started many aspirants to success on their way. He was very active in the Miller Debating Society in 1923, and is a candidate for the LL. B. and LL.M. degrees. He is a member of Benja- min B. French Lodge, No. 15, F. and A.M. In 1924 “Cammy” brought a broad outlook, untiring energy and a knowledge of practical politics to the office of President of the 1925 Class, and carried away the esteem of the Class and the title of “Steamroller.” Knowing “Cammy,” as we do, we feel certain he will be able to create that “atmosphere” which Professor Rathbone speaks about as being so essential to success in the practice of law. Page 60 THE DOCKET 19 2 5 WILLIAM EDWARD CAREY, Jr. Washington, D. C. HEN not pursuing an elusive golf ball o’er the distant lea or links of the Bannockburn Club, “Bill” Carey divides his time in reasonably equal periods between the st udy of law and earning a living, the first in National and the second with the Shipping Board. Except for a few of the femmes, Bill is one of the “infants” of the Class of ‘25, having first seen the light of day in 1902, in the village of Baltimore. He emigrated to the District in 1917, and in due time graduated from Central High School. Always inter- ested in debates, whether at the 19th hole or on the floor, Bill qualified as President of the Alvey Debating- Society in his first year at National, during which period the Class of ‘25 entrusted him with the office of Treasurer. Bill has ambitions,- — to win a real golf trophy (he has several already) ; to secure an LL.B degree and practice law in Washington, and to wear evening clothes in Moot Court, all of which he seems in a fair way to accomplish. Incidentally, he is one of the best liked men in the Class of ‘25, and if high standing in class is an indication, should meet with success in his chosen profession. RALPH L. CHAMBERS Norfolk, Virginia ALPH was born in Virginia, a State which has produced a lull quota of really great men for our Country, and is himself richly en- dowed with those qualities of tact, courage and diplomacy, so much to be desired by American manhood to- day, and which have helped to make his State one of the most famous. Should the practice of his chosen pro- fession lead him into the realm of statesmanship, it is predicted that he will travel far and with good results in that direction. His keen intellect and practical knowledge of everyday affairs indicate succeess in any line of endeavor he may attempt. At the call of his Country he allied himself with the “Devil Dogs,” join- ing the Marines on June 20, 1917, and remaining in the Service until it “was over, over there.” He is quite fond of golf, tennis and hunting, and can give an excellent account of himself in each of these manly sports, while in the classrooms he is always among those present with a good answer or a sound argument. A present candi- date for the degrees of LL.B. and M.P.L., Ralph has high hopes of hanging out a neat “shingle” in the not distant future, and if personality and genuine good-fellowship indicate anything, clients will be promptly forthcoming.

Graduated from the old Acade- my of the Holy Cross at the age of sixteen, and devoted the following four years to the study of voice culture and music. She undertook the study of law in the fall of 1922, merely to gratify a lifelong desire to take an LL.B. degree from the same school in which all three of her broth- ers had studied, two of whom had carried off the “McArthur Gold Medal” upon their graduation in the early nineties. She states she was much surprised, but the members of her class were not, when she was awarded th e Hurst Gold Medal last June, after the lapse of years from at- tendance at school. The most out- standing hobbies manifested to her classmates are good hard study of the law and a constant willingness to assist those about her. She has been an active supporter of all class ac- tivities and has decided to return next year for the Master’s degree. During the past three years our ac- quaintance has ripened into a friend- ship of lasting value. ELMO V. COONS La Grange, Kentucky LMO was born in La Grange, Kentucky, in 1898, where he completed the grammar school and graduated from high school in 1917. Shortly after graduating he enlisted in the Navy, and was as- signed to and served on board the U. S.S. JENKINS, which was based at Queenstown, Ireland, during the World War, and which took an active part in the United States Naval operations in the war zone. He was honorably released from active Naval service in February, 1919, and a short time thereafter accepted a position in the Government service. He is at present employed as a Claims Adjust- er in the General Accounting Office. The inherent trait of each and every true Kentuckian, that is, a keen dis- cernment for beautiful women, led him to take the girl of his choice on June 16, 1924. He is a member of the Modern Woodmen of the World, and is addicted to the harmless but fas- cinating game of golf. He is a candi- date for the Degree of Bachelor of Laws, and his present intention is to practice his profession in the west- ern part of the counti’y.

She now holds a re- sponsible position in the Office of the Adjutant General. She attended George Washington University prior to matriculating at National. Edith was class Secretary during its first year, and also Vice President of the Cy Pres Club. During the second year she was Circulation Man- ager of the Review; Secretary of the Miller Debating Society, and later, its Vice President.

Her loyal and untiring efforts toward the success of “The Docket,” both in the circulation and editorial fields, will not be forgotten. Her hobbies are golf, photography, walking and danc- ing, and she demonstrates in these the same high degree of efficiency that has characterized the perform- ance of each and all of the manifold duties that have devolved upon her. She is a candidate for the Degree of Bachelor of Laws, and her present in- tentions are to enter the active prac- tice of her profession, in which we are certain she will meet the success her classmates wish her. HOMER F. COOPER Florence, Alabama OMER was born in 1897, in Florence, Alabama, where he received his early education and attended the State Normal School for a period of three years. He taught in Alabama for two years, and came to Washington in 1917, to accept a position in the Treasury Department, which he held until September, 1918, when he resigned to enter the Army. He was on active duty until honorably discharged. He then returned to his former position in the General Ac- counting Office, where he is employed at the present time. On the sixth anniversary of his discharge from the Army he married a beautiful young lady, who has since proven to be a wonderful helpmate and a sustaining influence to him. Cooper is a candidate for the de- gree of Bachelor of Laws, and his in- tention is to enter the practice of his profession at Muscle Shoals, Alabama. He has taken an active interest in all the social affairs of the University, and enters every enterprise with a conscientious effort and a high mind- ed purpose. He exhibits on all occa- sions those commendable traits of character which characterise the highest type of a Southern gentle- man. Page 64 T HE DOCKET 1925 ROBERT W.

Sam’s only hobby is the harmless one of playing the violin, he doesn’t “fiddle.” He is a candidate for the Bachelor of Laws Degree and will doubtless return next year for his Master’s degree. He has kept us in the dark as to his future plans, but we are not deceived into believing that he has not a well mapped out course which will lead him to a re- munerative position in the very near future.

He enlisted in the Army at the outbreak of the World War and was assigned to Camp Jackson. Shortly after he received his honorable discharge he came to Washington where he held positions in the War Department, with the Interstate Commerce Com- mission, and the United States Rail- road Administration. He is now As- sistant Secretary to Senator Ellison D. Smith, of South Carolina, and As- sistant Clerk to the Senate Interstate Commerce Committee. He is a member of the Masonic Fraternity and the Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity, and is a candidate for the Bachelor of Laws degree. Having spent several years in railroad ac- counting, finance and legislative work, it is safe to predict that he will eventually become a successful rail- road attorney. He is fond of swim- ming and baseball, and expects to take up the harmless game of golf. The broadness of interest which characterized his davs at National, coupled with his wid sympathies and forward-looking views, will re- tain for him well deserved popularity. ROGER EDWARD DAVIS Washington, D. C. T )OGER E., candidate for the de- A gree of Master of Laws and Master of Patent Laws, is a Washingtonian, serving Uncle Sam in the capacity of Chief Clerk, Division of Crop and Livestock Estimates, Department of Agriculture. He is of the studious type, grasping every opportunity to secure greater knowledge. He attended the public and Business High Schools of the District and took an accountancy course at Pace Institute before enter- ing upon the study of law at National, from which he has already received the degree of Bachelor of Laws. Davis has been prominent in school ac- tivities, was Vice-President of the Alvey Debating Society during his freshman year and Sergeant-at-Arms of the second year class. He is a member of Harmony Masonic Lodge, Congress Chapter, O.E.S., and " a charter member of the Sigma Mu Sigma Fraternity. In addition to school activities, Davis is active in civic and religious affairs. While entertaining no particular hobby, he is interested in basketball, bowling, dancing and public speaking. As yet he has not ventured upon the sea of matrimony, but we venture to pre- dict that ere the pages of “The Docket” dry, the little ladv who has been his constant companion at our social activities will be sharing what- ever destiny has in store for him. Page 66 THE DOCKET 1925 FRANK A. DAWSON Washington, D. C. RANK claims the unique distinc- tion of being- a Washingtonian by birth. He graduated from Busi- ness High School, then entered Mary- land State College, and after two years of academic work, gave up his college career to answer the call of his Country, enlisting in the U. S. Engineers, Chemical Warfare Section, March 13, 1918, from which he was honorably discharged January 20, 1919. Having entered George Wash- ington University Law School in 1922, and attending that school for two years, he transferred to National University in the fall of 1924, to win the LL.B. degree. He says his favorite law subjects are Evidence and Real Property, which subjects were pursued during his junior year at George Washington. During his short stay with us Frank has made a host of friends, and we are glad to have had him with us. He has shown all the ear-marks of an excellent law student during the past year. Fraternally, Frank is a Mason, member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Delta Theta Phi fraterni- ties: also. Nu Sigma Omicron. a local of Maryland University. Be- sides Evidence and Real Property, Frank has other hobbies, golf, tennis, canoeing and dancing. We fully expect to hear of big things from Frank. JOSEPH M. DeCICCO Kingston, New York 4 4 ARY” was born in Kingston, I j New York, and came to Wash- ington about five years ago. Having received his early education in ‘York State, he chose National as the effective means of properly equip- ping himself to contribute his share in the administration of justice. His ambition is to become a good lawyer, and it is the sincere wish of his friends that this noble and worthy as- piration may be justly rewarded. During the World War “Gary” was a student in the Officers’ Training- School. He is a member of the Knights of Columbus, and has not, as yet become a “benedict.” When not narrowly escaping the “grim spectre” in his famous coupe, he is busy at his favorite game of tennis, or preparing for the future, with the helpful back- ing of his Alma Mater, tie will re- ceive the Bachelor of Laws degree. 1 i y i , J s, J . 1 1 • i • ‘ • i • • i i i i i i t i i i i i i i i t i i i i i i 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 67 APOLONIO R.

He is now a candi- date for the B.S. and LL.M. degrees. Born in Bustos, Bulacan, Philippine Islands, in 1902, De Leon was placed in the Spanish schools at Manila for his early education. At Nuestra Sra. del Rosario, the Instituto de Manila, and later at the Liceo de Manila, one of the oldest Universities in the Philippines, De Leon learned the Castillian language. At the age of fourteen he was able to write the vernacular language and at that early age he was also a writer of poetry and prose. His literary efforts later turned to political subjects. In quest of higher education in the English language, De Leon left for America in 1920, and in the same year entered Northwestern University Law School. After attending sum- mer school there he came to Wash- ington and matriculated at National in September, 1920, graduating three years later. When he goes back to his native land this summer to take up the practice of law, he goes out with high hopes of his class and the best wishes of his Alma Mater. CHARLES DEWEY DEM A REST, Jr. Waterloo, New York C HARLIE is with us again this year in order to learn more mysteries of the Law, having received the degrees of LL.B. and M.P.L. from National last year. He is now a candidate for degree of LL.M. He holds a responsible position in the Veterans Bureau at present, but no doubt will soon engage in the practce of law in this city. Charlie is a member of the Masonic Order and was President of the Na- tional University Masonic Club last year. He is Chancellor of Choate Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity, a member of the National University Chapter of the Disabled American Veterans; a member of Stuart Wol- cott Post No. 10 of the American Legion, and other organizations. He has held a number of offices during his four years at the Uni- versity and in recognition of faith- ful service as Treasurer of the 1924 Year Book Committee, was presented with a beautiful gold watch by his classmates and friends, which he cherishes very highly. Demarest enlisted in the Army in 1917, was commissoned a Second Lieutenant in June, 1918, and pro- moted to a First Lieutenant in Octo- ber, 1918.

His career has been varied, embracing the fields of bookkeeping, steno- graphy and accountancy. During the World War he was a member of the 20th Division at Camp Sevier, South Carolina, where he did excellent work with the Psychological Board. Lee’s scholastic career has been an event- ful one. He has been Chairman and Treasurer of the Social Committee; Treasurer of the Class of 1925 in its junior year, and led the class in the subject of Equity Jurisprudence in 1924, obtaining the almost unpre- cedent average of 98 in that subject. He is a 32 degree Mason, a Shriner and a member of the American Le- gion. He was admitted to the Bar of the State of North Carolina in August, 1924. He is fond of hunting, tennis and dancing, but it is his pro- wess as a hunter of which he is proud. He is at present employed as a Claims Examiner in the Veterans’ Bureau. He is married and is a candidate for the degree of LL.B. Lee is a thorough, conscientious student : a sincere friend and a straightforward man who will reflect credit both upon National and upon himself. LeROY H. DETWILER Three Rivers, Michigan 4 C T ET”first saw the light of day I Jin the little Michigan town of three Rivers. He survived the zero weather and blizzards of the “North Country” and in due time be- came thoroughly familiar with the three “R’s.” When ready for college he entered the University of Michi- gan, determined to master the pro- fession of dentistry. He was doing splendidly when along came the World War and “Det”, anxious to do his bit for his Country, joined the Colors. Then followed eighteen months of Army routine, during which time he traveled and saw much. After war was over, the law beckoned him. He came to Washington and entered Georgetown Law School. He is finishing his legal training at Na- tional to get the vantage point of another institution and thereby add to his already excellent knowledge of the law. He expects to practice law in Michigan. Naturually en- dowed with the characteristics which make for success, we know that he will be marked among “those who arrived” on the scroll of time. Bon Voyage, “Det.” VlVlV ' l - i v 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 69 JOHN P. DIVINE Ballston, Virginia J OHN P. was born we know not where, but he now resides in Ballston, Virginia, and is em- ployed in the Department of Agri- culture. He has proven himself an excellent student and a diligent searcher of the intricacies of the law. He possesses those qualities of character and ability which are so essential to the success of a lawyer, and we are of the opinion that his achievement of success in his chosen profession is only a matter of a short while. Divine is married, and has various fraternal and professional affiliations, to wit: he is a Mason, a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity, American Veterinary Medical As- sociation, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, and an Honorary Member of George Washington Veterinary Medical Association. His chief hobby is hunting, and other out- door sports. His keen sense of humor has won a host of friends and ad- mirers. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and has contributed much to “The Docket.” ARTHUR EDWARD DORER Boston, Massachusetts RIEND Dorer was born in Lon- don, England, and naturalized in Boston, Massachusetts, but re- ceived his early education in Switzer- land, Italy and France. He served twelve years in various branches of the United States Army, including the Artillery, Infantry, Calvary and Engineers. He has had service in Cuba and was in Panama during the World War, where he suffered a severe illness. His bearing and ap- pearance clearly reflect the true type of a good soldier and American citi- zen. His aptness and promptitude in the class room demonstrate that he has found his calling in the field of law, and we predict that success and distinction will attend his efforts in the not far distant future. Dorer is a candidate for all three degrees, is a member of Hiram Lodge, No. 10, F. and A.M., of this city, and is also a member of the na- tional University Masonic Club. His chief hobbies are walking, swimming, boxing, music, art and, although he doesn’t admit it, we believe he is strong on Medical Jurisprudence, judging from the manner in which he expounded his knowledge of De- mentia-Praecox from time to time. Dorer has rendered valuable and distinguished service as Unofficial Oberver and Meditator of the War College. Page 70 THE D O C K E T 1925 HENRY GORDON EDMONDS MYRON G. EHRLICH Washington, D. C. Washington, D. C. £ rjl OW Head” was born in the I District of Columbia and re- - ■ ceived his early education in the local schools, graduating from Central High School. He attended the University of Maryland for two years in pursuit of the degree of Bachelor of Arts. He then accepted a Government position and entered National University as a diligent searcher of law. Henry is an excel- lent student. He possesses that happy faculty of acquiring and keep- ing friends, which attribute will, without a doubt, serve as an import- ant factor in the achievement of suc- cess and distinction, to which he is justly entitled. Henry is single, but since it has been ascertained that, besides being a cross-word puzzle fan, he is a “Bridge” enthusiast, we predict that, ere long, this boastful attitude will be a thing of the past. During th ' - World War Henry served in th® Students’ Army Training Corps, but his hope for active service was not realized, owing to the signing of the Armistice. He is a member of Kappa Alpha Fraternity, Beta Kappa Chapter, University of Maryland, and a candidate for the LL.B. degree. M YRON was bom in June, 1904, in Baltimore, Maryland. He received his early education in the public and private schools of Washington, where he graduated from Emerson Institute. The “Kid,” as his intimate friends call him, has maintained an enviable record in his law studies, and while his youthful- ness might have been an obstacle in a class made up of students consider- ably his senior, he has, with his ease of action and adaptability, wholly overcome such a handicap, and ac- quired the admiration and friendship of all his classmates. He possesses those qualifications of preparedness and determination which command re- spect, and which are so essential to the success cf a lawyer. He merits the highest degree of success in the practice of his chosen profession. Myron’s chief hobbies are dancing baseball, golf and boxing. He is single, but we will not let that stand against him just now. He is a strong believer in the doctrine of “Give the willing young fellow a chance.” He will receive the degree of Bachelor of Laws. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 71 EDWARD B.

He is a member of the Miller 29th Engineers, overseas, during the Debating Society and served in the World War. “Eddie” is single, a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and has not an- nounced his plans, but we say, watch him. The best of luck, “Eddie!” M RS. Ellis was born in Cecil County, Maryland. She re- ceived her early education in the public schools of that county, and attended high school in Syracuse, New York. She also attended busi- ness college in Baltimore. In Decem- ber of 1917, Mabelle migrated to Washington to do war work, and was assigned to the Insurance Division of the War Risk Insurance Bureau. By dint of hard work she is now an in- surance expert in that Bureau. Ma- belle is one of our most brilliant students, having won the prize, in her first year, for the best examination in Bills and Notes, the most dreadful freshman subject. She has also been very active in all social affairs, and in her Junior year was class Treasur- er. She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority, Omicron Chapter, the Cy Pres Club, and the Womens’ City Club of this city. I I i - I I s l v I I Page 72 THE DOCKET 192 5 ELIZABETH S.

Characterized with that indomitable spirit which means success, she chose National in which to pursue the study of law, and her class standing has demonstrated that the profession upon which she is about to enter is truly the “chosen” one. A mention of her activities will serve to il- lustrate that work and devotion to duty and the welfare of others is her hobby, although she declares she has none. She is Associate Dean of Omicron Chapter, Kappa Beta Pi Sorority (Legal) ; served as president of the Cy Pres Club during her Junior year; as Vice-President, Freshman class; Historian, Junior class; Vice- President, Senior year class; As- sociate Editor of the “Review” for three years, was on the Business staff of the 1924 “Shingle,” and was ap- pointed on the staff of “The Docket.” She is a member of the Inez Milhol- land Chapter, National Woman’s Party. Popular and accomplished, we predict for her unbounded suc- cess. She will earn the LL.B. degree in June and expects to engage in legal practice in the District of Columbia and Maryland. JUAN ESTEVEZ Anasco, Porto Rico UAN was born in Anasco, Porto Rico, and attended the public schools there. Later he came to New York, where he graduated from St. Bonaventure’s College. He then came to Washington and entered National. While with us, “John” has also been taking an A.B. course at George Washington University, where he also expects to graduate this year. He is single, but we wonder if there will not be a Senora Estevez accom- panying him on the trip home. His intention is to take up the general practice of law in Porto Rico, where he wishes to work for the aggrendizement of his dear island. Juan is one of the two representatives of the “Pearl of the Carribbean” in our class. He is a hard worker and very ambitious, so we feel sure that he will meet with success wherever he goes. His many friends and class- mates wish him the best of luck. ' ’ - 1 1 1 1 1 1 ! 1 1 1 t 1 1 1 1 1 1 1 I I ' ! ' 1 t.

But, lo! names don’t x mean anything. “Fick” is constancy personified. He served under the Nation’s Flag as Lieutenant of Engineers during the World War, thirteen months of which time he spent overseas, where he was wound- ed in action. He comes to National from Georgetown University, from which he graduated in 1924 with the degree of LL.B. He is now a candi- date for the degrees of LL.M. and M.P.L. “Fick” is one of the younger members of the coveted “District Bar,” having successfully run the gauntlet last spring. He is a 32 degree Mason; Noble of the Mystic Shrine and a member of the Delta Tau Delta legal fraternity. “Fick’s” favorite sport is golf, and his accomplish- ments need be no further emphasized than to say that he is a member of the “Hole-in-One” Club. He is also a devotee of tennis, hunting and fishing. ALTER received his early education in the District of Columbia. He is a brilliant student of law, and possesses many desirable and pleasing attributes be- fitting to a man of his splendid type. Although handicapped by the neces- sity of traveling more than seven miles to school, after a hard days work as bookkeeper, Walter has, through his earnest efforts and devo- tion to his studies, succeeded in main- taining an enviable record, and as a result of these commendable qualities of perseverance we are confident that in the not distant future he will reap a just reward in the form of success and distinction in his chosen profes- sion. Walter admits he is single, but offers no apologies. He is a lover of the great outdoors, his hobbies being motorboating, swimming and duck hunting. He is a member of the Potomac Fishing and Gunning Club. In spite of these, we perceive his fondness for the ladies, and wouldn’t be suiprised if all this “outdoor stuff” isn’t a “lotta bunk.” He will receive the LL.B. in June. Page 74 THE DOCKET 192 5 R.

He was later transferred to the Fifth Officers’ Training Camp at Fort Levenworth, Kansas, where he served until dis- charged in April, 1918, by reason of injuries received in line of duty. He re-enlisted in June, 1918, and served until the latter part of 1919. Shortly thereafter he was appointed Vice Consul to La Guaria, Venezuela, which position he filed creditably until January, 1922, when he resigned to enter National University. He is a member of the Tropical Tramps, Sigma Nu Phi and the War College. “Dick” is a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees and his greatest ambition is to become an honest law- yer. We wish him the success he deserves. ROM the wild confines of the Elm City, “Franz” entered his senior year at National as a candidate for degree of LL.B., after two years at Georgetown. At all times a conscientious student in the doctrines and teachings of Blackstone and Kent, “Franz” will soon take his place among the noteworthies in the home city of Yale. He is a member of Tau Epsilon Phi, and has always ranked high in a qualification so essential to the equipment of every barrister, that is, the art of acquiring- friends. Due to shortness of the time he has been with us, “Franz” had little chance to become widely known, but nevertheless it is with profound regret that National will see him go, for he has earned a niche that might well be emulated by all underclass- men.

In the summer of 1923 he made a motor tour throughout the continental United States, driving his own car. He expects to leave for the Philippines next spring and enter the law office of his “Dad” as soon as he is admitted to the Philippine Bar. Senen has traveled extensively, not only in America, but also in Europe and the Orient. He is pleasant, courteous and democratic in manner; gentle and likeable in bearing. He goes back to the homeland a Filipino in every respect, and a lover of the American people and institutions. His inherent Filipino traits have been en- riched by the addition of the Ameri- can democratic character which he ac- quired through contact with American people. He oes out with the Dride and best wishes of his classmates. JOHN T. GATELY Washington, D. C. L AWYERS are not usually sus- ceptible to music, but “Johnny” may be called an exception, for besides being an adept student of the law, he is a master on the banjo, well nigh indispensable to the orchestra of the Washington Canoe Club. In the profession of law “Johnny” will be equally as brilliant as in the field of music. He has a curious philoso- phy, believing in the enforcement of speed regulations, but at the same time he contends that there are only two classes of pedestrians, the quick and the dead. In the Special Assessment Section of the Income Tax Unit where he is an auditor, “Johnny” is also the “honorable Secretary of the AVOBA Society, better known as the Ancient and Venerable Order of Belly- Achers. “Johnny” received his first two years of law training in the Knights of Columbus School. He served in the Navy during the World War. He will leave National with the L.L.B. degree. Page 76 THE DO C K E T 1925 FRANK B.

Germon is well posted on the law of domestic re- lations, as he is married. He is a member of the Masonic Order and has served in the National Guard for seven years. He began the study of law at Georgetown University and is now a candidate for the LL.B de- gree at National. Germon likes to “flivver.” He is much interested in banking and the laws of trusts, and we will not be surprised if some day he is the general counsel or president of one of the largest Trust Com- panies. Frank has a most pleasing- manner which will carry him far toward the goal of success. JOSEPH A. GIOVANNONI Washington, D.

He is now in command of the 320th In- fantry stationed in the District of Columbia. He commanded Company H, which furnished the Military Guard of Honor to President Wilson while the latter was in London. Congenial, and always wearing a smile, “Capt.

Bowling has a great fascination for “Pops,” who throws a wicked ball and has scored as high as 75 in more than one game. John entered National in 1922. During the World War he was a sergeant in the Medical Supply Depot. He is a member of the Masonic Order and of Sigma Nu Phi. He is in an excellent position to know the prospect of airships in the affairs of the world, as he is Secretary to Forney Johnston, General Counsel of the Seabord Airline. “Pops” is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and if the diplomatic field does not claim him, he will doubtless have the pleasure of handing down important decisions from the Supreme Bench. MARTHA GOEBEL Alton, Iowa M ARTHA is a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. Her. untiring efforts aided very materially in making “Ye Shingle” of 1924 the success that it was. She also contributed considerably to the success of the “Critic” during its most successful year as the student publication. As a member of the Critic staff she did excellent work in connection with the finances, — an all- important and indespensable feature of any worth while undertaking. In addition to highly creditable class work, Martha has been an officer of the Cy Pres Club, a member of the Roosevelt Club, an organizer and chairman of the Inez Milholland Chapter, National University Branch, of the National Woman’s Party, and is an active member of its Legal Research Department. Her “Com- plex” — as Dr. Hickling in Medical Jurisprudence would express it — is “Equal Rights for Women.” While extremely modest about her athletic activities, she wields a wicked tennis racket, “Smashing ‘em over ” impetu- ously. When she golfs, the ball is all too small to be followed with the normal eye and a “floater” is needed for safe recovery from the blue waters of the Potomac. In the minds of those who know Martha best, there is no doubt regarding her success in the legal profession. Page 78 THE DOCKET 1925 AARON E. GOTTSHALL Washington, D. C. N the beginning of the eighteenth century the Germans settled in Pennsylvania, and “Bing,” as Gottshall is better known, is perhaps the only exhibit of that sturdy stock of pioneers known as “Pennsylvania Dutchmen,” in the Class of 1925. “Bing” is friend to all who take him for a Dutchman, but tackles anyone who mistakes him for a Swede. He received his preparatory education at the Perkiomen School and it was there he met the future Mrs. Gott- shall. “Bing” received his A.B. at Brown University, where he was prominent in school activities and was left guard on the Varsity football team. He then spent two years teaching history and coaching in football. He says he would rather watch a football game than eat, and could sit all night at pinochle. He is a member of Phi Delta Theta social fraternity and of Sigma Nu Phi legal fraternity “Bing” is dad to a son and a daughter, beauti- ful children who have all the virtues of their mother and none of the faults of their father. When “A.E.” leaves National with the LL.B., he will also carry with him the best wishes of his class. DANIEL L.

He taught school in Georgia and Florida for several years and spent his summers as a student first in the University of Georgia and then in the Lincoln Memorial University in Tennessee. Becoming interested in law, he studied in the office of his brother in Douglas, Georgia, and was admitted to the Georgia Bar in 1918. He is also a member of the District of Columbia Bar and was one time secretary to Senator Harris of Georgia. “Doc” is an excellent student and a wonderful Moot Court witness. He expects to practice here and his friend expect great achievements from him.

His business career was begun as office boy for the Carnegie Steel Company. By the time he was sixteen he had learned to write short- hand. When the war engulfed this Country in its dread clutches, “Ches” enlisted in the Navy. After the Armistice, the Assistant Secretary of the Navy, having heard of his abili- ties, called him to be his assistant private secretary. In 1920 “Ches” re- signed his position in the Navy De- partment to become secretary to the President of the Masonic Mutual Life Association of Washington. In 1922 he matriculated at National and re- entered Government service, the better to pursue his studies. That he is a tireless worker is at- tested by the fact that he reported most of the law lectures in shorthand, and won the prize in Real Property in his second year. He was Vice- President of the Alvey Debating Society in his first year and Secretary of the second year class. He is a deep thinker and a faithful student, and with such qualifications his future is assured. J. PRENTICE GROSS Dallas, Texas J Prentice is one of the quiet young men who came to Nation- • al to put the finishing touches upon his legal education He received the degree of LL.B. at the Jefferson School of Law in 1923, is a member of the Texas Bar, and previous to coming to this City, practiced law in Dallas, Texas. He excels in debating, but his forensic and journalistic as- pirations have been somewhat cur- tailed by reason of respect for others, notwithstanding the Constitutional right of freedom of speech and the press. If there is any sport that he likes better than hunting and fishing, it is perhaps dancing, and he never likes to miss one. J.’P. is a Mason, a member of the National University Masonic Club, and also a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternitv, Mu Chapter. During the World War he served in the Army. He aspires to the degree of J. D. before his return to Dallas to engage in private prac- tice. With his pleasing personality and winsome smile he is bound to succeed, and our best wishes are with him.

However, he is well acquaint- ed with our school, having received the degree of LL.B. and M.P.L. from National in 1922. He is now a candi- date for the degree of LL.M. Halstead is particularly interested in Patent Law and is at the present time employed as an Associate Ex- aminer in the Patent Office.

He joined the Navy during the World War and did duty on the “Qui Vive” and the “Adrian.” He obtained part of his legal training at George Washington University, where he had an enviable record for proficiency and stood high in debating circles. He drew first honors in an inter-society debate after joining our ranks. He is a member of the Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity, Delta Sigma Rho and also of the George Washing- ton University Masonic Club. We do not know his future plans, but he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and a vocation where his forensic ability can be brought into play would, we venture, be most fitting.

The writer can pay no higher compliment to his scholastic attainments than to recall to our readers’ minds that he won the Carusi Gold Medal for attain- ing the highest general average on all subjects during his Freshman year. He served Uncle Sam in the Marines during our scrap with “Heine.” He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and, having already had four years experience in a law office, besides being Secretary to Congress- man Box, of his home State, his suc- cess is assured when he goes back to Texas to practice as we are told is his intention. Alva derives real pleasure in helping fellow students with their law problems, and has rendered able assistance to the Staff as Associate Editor of “The Docket.” BOTHER Hendrick came to us from the large manufacturing city of Murray, Iowa. We had never heard of the place until we heard of Earl, but are quite certain it will now go down in history as the home of one of the most learned justices who ever sat on a bench. He is now a candidate for three degrees at National, LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L., which all goes to show that he is overflowing with ambition. His un- usually full program of studies has prevented him from taking any fixed part in the numerous school activities, yet he has been ever ready to do his bit. Earl is a member of King David Lodge No. 28, F. and A.M., the Na- tional University Masonic Club and the War College. He was a Sergeant in the Army during the late war and sei’ved for more than two years over- seas with the American Expedition- ary Forces. Page 82 THE DOCKET 1925 WILLIAM P.

Jacob has had numerous successes with the oars and on the mat as an athlete and from appearances could still make aspirants for athletic dis- tinction hustle. He helped to organize and was made President of the Calvin Coolidge Club at National, where he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. He is engaged in the insurance busi- ness, and we feel certain he will put his legal training to excellent use in expanding his interests. 1 9 2 5 THE D O C K E T P a g e 83 JOSEPH PAUL HESTER Groton, New York q 4 tOE” came from Ithaca, New York, “Cornell Town,” where he spent his childhood days and gained his early education and a knowledge and love of things beauti- ful about magnificent and historic Cayuga, one of New York’s famous Finger Lakes. Having heard of wonderful opportunities in the Capital City, and wishing to pursue the study of law, he came to Washington in 1920, and graduated from George- town University Law School with the degree of LL.B. in 1923. While at Georgetown he became a member of the Carroll Debating Society and gained honorable mention as a logi- cian. “Joe” passed the District of Columbia Bar test last June with fly- ing colors, but still wishing to add more distinction to his name, he entered National University Law School last October and he is now a candidate for the degrees of LL.M. and M.P.L. “Joe,” with his unassum- ing way his vivacious manner and his pleasing personality, is sure to gain renown.

He 77 is a candidate for the LL.B. de- gree, but it is of his noble part in the moving drama of the World War that we wish to write. “Jerry” mixed into the European “squabble” in 1915, beginning in the American Volunteer Motor Ambu- lance Corps, serving in the “Legion Etranger,” and later as Aviator in the famous LaFayette Escadrille. He flew over every sector on the Western Front from Switzerland to the North Sea. He was wounded in making a forced landing at St. Pol, Belgium. He then served in the American forces until it was over, over there. Here is a list of his decorations: Ruban Commoratif de la Escadrille La- Fayette; Medaille Commorative de la Grande Guerre; Blessis de Guerre Francaise; Medaille de la Victoire Francaise; American Victory Medal and New York State Victory Medal. He dropped autographed copies of President Wilson’s speech over the German Lines immediately after the American Declaration of War. He raised more than four million dollars for the Victory Loan, receiving a certificate of thanks and a medal from the United States Treasury De- partment for this service. All honor to Hewitt!

That is his history, but, by the way. lie’s Scotch — he ought to be good loo, being a descendant of a line of pedagogues.

JOYNER Oklahoma City, Oklahoma INCE graduating from a business school in 1908, Tom has been writing shorthand for lawyers and law firms, associating with law- yers so long that he finally became convinced he would make a better lawyer than they if he had the chance to attend a good law school. The chance came when, in 1921, he was offered a position as secretary to a prominent lawyer who was coming to Washington as Special Assistant to the Attorney General, to prosecute a big case. So, to Washington Tom came and remained. To take the better advantage of his opportunity, he entered the Civil Service forces and in 1922 matriculated at National, where he is now candidate for the LL.B. degree. Tom is single, but we do not guarantee that he will remain so. Baseball is his hobby and he didn’t miss a world series game play- ed in Washington. Joyner is a member of Sigma Mu Sigma Fraternity and the Miller De- bating Society. He served as clerk in the A.G.O. at Fort Sill, Oklahoma, in 1918, and was honorably dis- charged in 1919. Upon graduation Tom expects to go back to Oklahoma to practice law, and if some day he faces some of his old employers at the trial table, we predict that Tom will be the winner. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 89 BARNEY KRUCOFF Washington, D.

According to the “cop,” ignorance of the law ex- cuses no one, and this may have had something to do with Charley’s subsequent decision to know more about this matter called law. At an early age he graduated from high school in Michigan, took up the teaching profession, and his record was so excellent that he was soon made principal of the public schools at Entricon, Michigan. He later came to Washington and enrolled at the Washington School of Account- ancy. from which he graduated with the degree of B.C.S. He then entered National and his high marks in every subject would now make that “cop” sit up and take notice. Charley is a member of the Masonic Order, the Ionic Club and the Ameri- can Legion.

Educated in the high school of his native town, lie later entered a business school at Trenton and graduated from the Walton School of Accounting. Prior to the World War, he was employed in the Interstate Commerce Commis- sion and for one year assisted in the organization of a cooperative market- ing association in Florida.

Returning to this country, he accepted a posi- tion as accountant in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. “Bonnie” is now a candidate for the LL.B. degree.

In 1913 he graduated from Douglas College, Mc- Keesport, Pennsylvania, and five years later enlisted in the Army to serve his Country during the World War. He was transferred to Wash- ington to the Judge Advocate Gener- al’s Office, where his excellent service earned a commission as Regimental Sergeant Major, with which rank he was honorably discharged in 1919. Some time after his discharge he ac- cepted a position in the U.S. Engi- neer’s Office, Pittsburg, from which he resigned to become private secre- tary to the manager of a steel com- pany. He was later promoted to salesman, with an attractive salary and a large territory. “Lu” wanted a legal training ; so giving up this posi- tion he came to Washington as a Civil Service employee, that he might here avail himself of the excellent educa- tional facilities. “Lu” is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity and the Miller De- bating Society.

We fear that he will never make his mark as a forensic orator, but his advice will be valuable, since his store of information seems unlimited and he has an enviable capacity for read- ing and remembering what he has read. “Mac’s first abode was in Pitts- field, Massachusetts, where he at- tended the public schools and Williams College.

Frank served his Country with the A.E.F. during the World War, and at National has been one of that group of the super-studious whose members are to be found ensconced in the li- brary far into the night.

National University Law Review, Junior and Senior years; and Treasur- er and Photographic Editor of “The Docket.” Elected, on five occasions, to the office of Treasurer of organiza- tions to which he belongs, George in- deed abundantly merits the title of “Honest Man.” “Red” served in the A.E.F., having landed at Brest in July, 1918, and after service all over France, was dis- charged at Norfolk, Virginia, in June, 1919. He is married and Vice Presi- dent of Wright, Hedrick and Com- pany, Incorporated, where, he says, he expects to “clean up” in the coal field. George is a scholar and an old- time Southern gentleman. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree, and we predict for him a career of excep- tional brilliance and signal success. GEORGE MANSFIELD MOORE Moulder, Kentucky G EORGE first saw the " light of day less than forty years ago in a Kentucky log cabin. His early schooling was acquired under diffi- culties, and he boasts a checkered career as farmer, iron worker, country school teacher and superintendent of schools. His unfailing flow of forci- ble rhetoric is attributed to the com- manding grasp of expletives essential to “driving a plow around the side of a hill with a mule hitched to one end and little George to the other.” In addition to special courses in psychology, political science and eco- nomics, he numbers among his alma maters the Sue Bennett Memorial School, Berea College, and Eastern Kentucky State Normal College. He also attended the University of Ken- tucky; George Peabody College, of Nashville, Tennessee; George Wash- ington University; American Uni- versity, and last, but foremost, he goes forth, in 1925, an alumnus of National University. George’s de- grees line up like the decorations of a British Field Marshal: B ' . Ped., A.B., A.B. in Ed., M. A., and now LL.B. He is a good Republican and is a Mason. In National he has taken an active part in debating and oratory, and it was largely due to the sweet- ness of his tongue in the Moot Court that Kilroy Gunn was saved from hanging. We anticipate his return to Washington in an early Congress. Page 96 THE DOCKET 1925 WILLIAM HENRY MORALES Havana, Cuba O N the balmy, breeze-swept isle of Porto Rico, William Henry was ushered into this life in 1872. Since then his life has been exception- ally eventful. Educated in the Vir- ginia and Washington, D. C., public schools, he rounded out his education at the University of New York. Ever eager for acquiring further knowl- edge, he then attended law school in New York City. Upon the outbreak of the Spanish- American War, Morales served this Country in the New York National Guard. He left to serve on the American Evacuation Commission, as secretary to the Military Governor of Havana. Being fond of the delight- ful Cuban climate, so akin to that of his own heath, he remained sixteen years as secretary of the National Bank of Cuba. Notwithstanding his membership in the New York State Bar Associa- tion, he decided to refreshen his mind upon legal subjects from a retrospec- tive standpoint. He is a candidate for the degree of LL.B. at National, and upon graduation will return to his beloved Cuba to manage the affairs of certain sugar companies. He is a Royal Arch Mason, and his hobbies are fencing, boxing, wrestling and tennis. May prosperity accom- pany his efforts. SAMUEL CLEVELAND MULLEN Washington, D. C. AM” was born in “OF Virgin- ny,” where he fininshed the grammar schools and then migrated to the District of Columbia, where he attended high school, Columbia School of Drafting, Wash- ington Business College, Strayer’s Business College, and the National University of Therapeutics, receiving the degree of Doctor of Chiropractic from the latter institution. At National he has achieved dis- tinction in his class work, carrying- off second honors in his Freshman year from a class of two hundred fifty six students. “Sam” is a mem- ber of the famous War College, where he has acquired fame by keeping out of arguments, which, during heated sessions, is a superlative achievement. He has served with distinction as as- sistant clerk of the Moot Court. He is a candidate for the degrees of LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L. He plans to become a member of the District of Columbia and Virginia Bars, and later we may greet him as Governor of Virginia. 192 5 I vl VI v I V IV -I ■ IV IV IV IV I I •.. tv-1- IVIvl I THE DOCKET Page 97 TIMOTHY MURPHY Washington, D. C. 4 4 1 : ylM” comes from New York, where the tiger rules, al- though he has not confided in us regarding his political aims. We have always found him to be the most agreeable of friends, ever a good Samaritan, and always faithfully in- dustrious as a student. He hasn’t expressed his future intentions, but we know he inclines strongly toward the real estate business, in which he has already met with success. We venture that this law course is to be used to attain greater rewards in that realm. He is a candidate for the degrees of LL.B and M.P.L., and we are sure he will win both with high honors. “Tim” is married, a member of the Knights of Columbus, the Disabled American Veterans and the War College. He served valiantly in the World War and bears many honor- a ble marks of service. His class- mates wish him the well deserved and well earned success which is sure to come. CHARLES J. O’BRIEN Clarendon, Virginia T O one who through close associa- tion has known Charley intimate- ly during the years of his de- velopment from youth into manhood, two traits stand out in relief against the more subdued background of his lesser virtues and faults that make him human. These are determina- tion and sincerity. Fortunate indeed is the man endowed with them to so generous a degree, for the former commands the success which the latter merits. Exact speech, clear thought and just dealing fit him most admirably for his chosen profession. In his makeup he has enough of sentiment and tenderness to give to blind justice a most acute sense of touch, enough of human kindness to temper the coldness of logic demand- ed by the law. In his nature he has a serious and a gay side, but the two are separated by a well-defined line. His recreation is tennis, but his greatest pleasure is found in the pride of accomplishment, and this to his friends makes his success seem certain. He will earn the degree of LL.B. this year. Page 98 THE DOCKET 19 2 5 DANIEL J. O’BRIEN San Francisco, California £ 4 s BEE” hails from the west I I where men are men and women are angels. He was Lorn in Virginia City, Nevada, where he completed grammar and three years of high scnool. In 1910 he re- moved to San Francisco, where he entered the Naval Service and began the study of chemistry and phar- macy; was assigned to the Hospital Training School, San Francisco, Cali- fornia, as instructor in chemistry during the World War, and later as instructor in Materia Medica at the School for Naval Pharmacists at Hampton R,oads, Virginia. He was later assigned to the Navy Transport “Paysandu,” which played an active part in the transportation of troops from France. October 4, 1920, he was commissioned a Chief Pharmacist in the Navy, by the late President Wilson, under which commission he is now serving. At National “O’Bee” has played a prominent part in school affairs, serv- ing as Marshal of the Moot Court and President of the Senior Class. His hobbies are tennis and dancing. He expects to attain the LL.B. degree. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity, Elks, and Knights of Columbus, and has worked hard for the success of“The Docket.” JOHN JOS EPH O’DONNELL New Haven, Connecticut £ 4 fACK’S” parents migrated to America during one of those Irish Potato famines, and set- tled down in Yankeeland. Shortly afterward the subject of our sketch was born. In due course Jack at- tended the public and high schools of New Haven. Later he specialized in accountancy, which profession he is now following. “Jack” is a member of Kappa Alphi Phi Fraternity of Georgetown University, and an ardent member of the Knights of Columbus. He likes o-olf. and is often seen on the Potomac Park links, weilding a mean mashie. Pie served in the American Expedi- tionary Forces in France for sixteen months. After securing his LL.B. degree, “Jack” intends to practice law in New York and Connecticut, and we pre- dict a happy and prosperous future. f I 1 1 I " t 1 - - • ' T - 1 t t - I ' T » ' t t ' » -• 1 ' ! - ? 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 99 CHARLES E. PAINE Washington, D. C. ALBIN PEARSON Chicago, Illinois 4 £ tKE” hails from the District, f where he was born in 1897, one day too late to be a valentine. He attended the public schools of Washington, including McKinley Manual Training School; entered the University of Maryland in 1915, graduated with the B. S. degree in Mechanical Engineering, and followed that profession until he could no longer restrain his desire to master the fickle mysteries of the law. Through hard work and a pleasing personality he has gained the admira- tion and respect of his fellow students, who wish him that success so well merited through years of untiring effort. He is a member of Nu Sigma Omricon, and a Captain in the Re- serves. “Ike” is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and expects to enter local practice. O UR friend, Pearson, comes from Chicago. The mere mention of “Chi” assures our subject of a fitting sketch. Albin is already a most successful tax consultant with a clientele which would be satisfying to many who consider themselves al- ready within the portals of success. Pearson is a Mason, a member of the Elks and Sigma Nu Phi Fraterni- ty. He is quite an admirer of “Lady Nicotine,” and enjoys a game of bridge when he has a good partner and the competition is keen. He served with credit in the Engineer Corps during the World War and is now a Reserve Captain in that arm of the Service. He is a well-informed disciple of the law and candidate for the degree of LL.B. Page 100 THE DOCKET 192 5 JOHN H. PIGG London, Kentucky J OHN hails from London — not England, but Kentucky, that State famous for its fast horses, good “licker,” and forceful oratory. We have no doubt that he will measure up to Kentucky’s standards in the latter field. John was Vice-President of the Na- tional University Masonic Club and Chairman of its Executive and Finance Committee ; member of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity, of which he is Marshal, and he won the gold scholarship key awarded by that fraternity for the highest average for the school year 1923-1924. He is a Mason, Knight Templar, Shriner, and a member of the Ionic Club. He holds a responsible position in the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and is a graduate of the Pace Institute of Accountancy. He served his Country honorably and faithfully in the U. S. Marine Corps during the period 1917 to 1922, and, having weathered through the risks and horrors of war, assumed the responsibilities of matrimony. He has rendered valuable service as an Associate Editor of “The Docket.” John is a candidate for the Bachelor’s degree, and expects to practice on his old stamping grounds in Kentucky, where we feel sure he will meet with marked success, if we may judge by his pleasing manner. DAVID WILLIAM PINKSTON Sparta, Georgia T HERE is a breathless hush in the recitation hall! The profes- sor has called upon “Mr. Pinks- ton,” who arises, bathed at once in that “atmosphere” which Professor Rathbone deems so essential to a good l awyer. We hear a good, clear answer to the interrogation and a smile goes ’round the room at the witty remark which always concludes the incident. In other words, “Pink” is an excellent student, an irrepres- sible humorist and optimist and one of the most popular men in school. He comes from Georgia and will re- turn there to practice after decorat- ing himself with all three legal de- crees, and we know he will succeed. “Pink” did noble service for his Country overseas during the World War. He is one of “The Docket’s” Associate Editors. Good luck, “Pink”! ■ till i t i i . f , , - , , iii iii i i i i ' ' t ’ i ' ' ' ' ' ' ' i i i I | | | t 1 — , — , , , — , — — i l l l l I . I I .

NCE again Kentucky rallies to the occasion and sends National a future lady legislator, none other than Miss Poindexter, who took her A.B. degree from George Wash- ington University in 19?1. She is a member of the Kappa Delta Sorori- ty, is employed in the General Land Office, Department of the In- terior, and is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. She has not stated future plans, but we expect much in the way of accomplishment because of the record for studiousness and knowledge of the law she has estab- lished among us. The Class wishes her abundant success. P OORE, HERE ! ! Those healthy, unmistakable tones come from no other than our friend, John L., who does not wish to be overlook- ed at roll-call. He wasn’t missing at roll-call “over there,” either, having served in the 110th Field Artillery “somewhere in France.” “Old Baldy,” while over there, says he helped win and lose the battle of vin cognac, but he failed to say whether he received a decoration for this meritorious service. “Jack” is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Fraternitv, the War College and Veterans of Foreign Wars. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and will make a good trial lawyer. Ask anyone in Moot Court. His friends are all ready to boost. Page 102 THE DOCKET 1925 G. MALLET PREVOST Washington, D. C. O UR friend G. M., a native of Washington, started a little late in the course, but he is not late now and will take his LL.B. in June. “Mai” is a member of the Phi Sigma Cappa Fraternity and served in the U. S. Army during the War with Germany. He is already engaged in Patent Law work, being associated with his father, who has a large practice in that field. We predict success and shall he glad to see it. We would not be surprised if “Tow Head” Edmonds also becomes associ- ated with the firm, since he and “Mai” have been inseparable friends throughout the course. Best wishes! CHARLES H. QUIMBY, 3rd Takoma Park, D. C. C HARLIE loves boating and hunting and while he didn’t men- tion it, we venture that he motors some also. He is employed by the Merchants’ Bank and Trust Com- pany, but since there will be an LL.B. affixed to his name in June, we pre- dict some appropriate and neat gold lettering will soon appear on his door “somewhere in Washington.” “Charlie” is one of our quieter students until aroused by some argu- ment, which causes him to unleash a veritable Niagara of words, thoughts and ideas. Rarely does he express himself until he has given a matter such consideration as to enable him to definitely form an opinion on one side, or the other, but his opinion once formed is not readily shaken. His is a mind that instinctively sides itself with those things morally right and for this reason we predict a very suc- cessful legal career for him, particu- larly in Equity practice. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 103 BRUNO RANIERI Freeland, Pennsylvania RUNO is domiciled in the State rj of Pennsylvania, and is at pres- ent residing at 1826 Calvert Street, Northwest, Washington, D. C. He is a member of the Knights of Pythias, and has been associated with the various debating societies at Na- tional. He is not only deeply interest- ed in the study of law, but is enthusi- astically fond of nature and nature’s teachings. He is addicted to the harmless game of tennis, and long strolls through the woods. Bruno is a quiet, unassuming chap, who listens attentively to all that is said, and has, therefore, stored up a fund of knowledge in his retentive mind. He is a candidate for the Bachelor of Laws degree, and it is his present intention to enter upon the active practice of his chosen profes- sion in the Keystone State. He fel 1 foul of Cupid’s arrow recently, and now has a beautiful wife, who will lend a helping, hand and a sustaining influence which will enable him to reach a higher success in life than he could hope to attain alone. EDWARD J. REAMER Washington, D. C. HO does not know “Subroga - tion,” alias “Wessels” Reamer? He is another of our reliable and congenial friends at Old National, where he has been master of the roll. He is a member of the National Uni- versity Masonic Club and Vice-Presi- dent of the Theodore Roosevelt Club. He is a native of Washington and has let no opportunity pass unnoticed. He has studied law diligently with a view to its practical application and never forgets there are always two sides to a question. He has the good qualities of pleasing personality and tenacious perseverance, which assure him of success in the great profession he has undertaken. Reamer is fond of fast driving and debating. He is a candidate for the degree of LL.B. and expects to practice here. Page 104 THE DOCKET 192 5 MAURICE JAMES REIDY Washington, D. C. M AURICE enjoys fame among the sandlot ball players of Washington, beside being an adept on the piano. His present state of single blessedness is, it is whisper- ed, soon to come to an end, and there will be a “Mrs.” waiting with a roll- ing pin when he arrives home. He has resided in Washington almost continuously since birth, with the ex- ception of some time spent in the employ of the Baldwin Locomotive Works at Philadelphia, and while pur- suing a course of study in the Penn- sylvania Hospital of the same city. He has studied at various local institu- tions, including Emerson Institute, and is now connected with the Psyco- Analytical Department of St. Eliza- beth’s Hospital ; so, when he receives his LL.B. degree in June we feel logically within the bounds of reason in predicting his success in the field of Medical Jurisprudence. Good luck, old boy ! MAYNARD C. RISLEY Mount Carmel, Illinois 4 4 t IS” was born in 1900, in the rY great and sovereign State of x Illinois. At an early age he displayed signs of an inherited desire for public service. He was fond of imagining himself a Washington or Napoleon conquering the enemy. When the World War came, he stole away to the Canadian Army, where the age limit was lower than in our own. He became a member of Royal Canadian Horse Artillery and served for eighteen months overseas with great credit. He received several in- juries, none of which, fortunately, were permanent. After the war he returned home, completed his high school education, and, like Alexander, desiring more worlds to conquer, came to Washington and entered Na- tional University. This is but an- other manifestation of his desire for public service, for those who know him well believe his ambitions lie along the line of politics. We know he has the energy and devotion to duty to achieve his highest ambitions. He will take the LL.B. degree in June. He is a member of Dawson Lodge No. 16, F. and A.M., and Wabash Post No. 423, of the American Legion. • • ■ ■ • ■ ■ ■ ’ • • • ■ • • ■ ’ ■ • ■ ■ ■ ’ • • • ’ • ’ ■ ■ • • ■ • • « ... I ..... I . I.

RUSH Boston, Massachusetts HIS cheerful young man was born in the City of Boston a few years since and at an early age showed excellent talent for and in- clination toward the legal profession. He has an analytical mind and goes to the bottom of the subject at hand. Upon graduation from the Boston College High, “Danny” came to Washington, entered the Y.M.C.A. Business School, and there completed a course in Accountancy, preparatory to his chosen profession. He began the study of law in 1922, and receives his LL.B. this year. He is single, girls, and expects to en ter active practice in his home town. “Danny” is an excellent chap, modest and unassuming, and his clients will find him dependable and trustworthy. He is now a Reviewer in the Internal “Revenoo”, and has made a host of friends at National, where he has always been found wil- ling to do all possible to smooth the paths of others. He is destined to succeed wherever he goes, and he will always have friends, for he knows how to be one. HARRY SALWITZ Bridgeport, Connecticut 4 4 r fAL” hails from Bridgeport, i N Connecticut, and intends to return to his home to practice, whereupon we expect to hear of him as one of the leading legal luminaries of the vicinity. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and devotes his entire time to the pursuit of legal learning, so it naturally follows that he is one of our “good” ones. While not deeply interested in the ordinary diversions of student life, he prefers to find pleasure in long walks out doors. He is well liked by his many friends, who find him “all there” in law discussions. He is Sergeant-at- Arms of the Faba Club. Another good man from whom we pail with regret, but we wish him good luck and the best that life may hold.

Upon his arrival in this country, Harry at once began the study of English and his tutor is to be compli- mented on the progress of his student. The LL.B. degree will be added to his list of attainments this June. Harry is ambitious, progressive and enterprising, with an already credit- able record of achievement behind him, so we have little doubt that some day back in dear old Boston he will find the horn of plenty overturned in his lap. He is an excellent student and is well liked by all who come in contact with him. We trust he may not forget the many friends lie leaves behind at National. PROSPERO C. SANIDAD Narvacon, Philippines i L OONNY”, as he is affectionate- ,Sly called, is a young man of - " ' sterling character and cheer- ful disposition. He was born at Narvacon, Illocos Sur, Philippines, in 1897. He is a product of American schools in the Islands, and migrated to the United States to complete his education. The University of the Philippines, University of Washing- ton, Temple University and National are among the institutions from which he has added to his store of learning. “Sonny” is an all-round athlete, is especially fond of tennis, swimming and horseback riding, and is also a writer. Pie is a speaker of force and eloquence, and by these two excellent qualities was early recognized by his fellow countrymen and his friends on this side the Pacific. He has held offices, both fraternal and otherwise, too numerous to detail here, except that we must mention his Presidency of the Philippine Columbians. He is a candidate for the LL.B degree and has been a most active Associate Editor of “The Docket.” Sanidad is tactful and pleasant of manner, courageous in his stands, and a pleader of no mean ability. He has been an excellent student of whom we expect much. Good luck, old man. 1 9 2 5 THE DOCKET Page 107 ANNE SCHEIBER Brooklyn, New York NNE came to us from New York City and throughout our associa- tion with her she has always ex- hibited the vim and progressiveness characteristic of her birthplace. She is a graduate of the graded and high schools of that city and studied ac- counting at the College of the City of New York. Also, she is a graduate of the Womens’ Law Class of the New York University, and is a candidate for LL.B. at National. She has put her accounting knowledge to good use, and at the present time is an auditor in the Income Tax Unit of the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Anne is a mem- ber of the Cy Pres Club and takes an active interest in all school activities. Although we have heard a rumor that Anne intends to study the English law abroad, the present indications seem to be that she will return to New York and enter politics in her own district. We wouldn’t be surprised to greet her as an office holder soon. Our best wishes go with her. EARL F. SECHREST Tonganoxie, Kansas 0 significance is to be attached to his name, as rest is the last thing our industrious friend reeks, he was born in the “Sun- flower” State, and attended the Leavenworth Normal School. (He insists that this be not confused with another well known institution lo- cated in that vicinity). Earl began his career as a school teacher in Idaho, where disputes are often settled by means not entirely pacific, and there- after he joined the Expeditionary Forces to try his talents against the Hun. He says he is too old for foot- ball and the other sports are too gentle. He is somewhat of a joiner, Mason- ry, Sigma Nu Phi, American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, National University Masonic Club and War College are among his “scalps,” and he has seen the sun rise and set in England, Scotland, Ireland, Germany, Belgium, Luxemburg, Italy and France. Sechrest believes in absolute im- partiality and abhors unfairness ; has a cheerful and calm disposition and an analytical mind, and we all expect to see him attain no mean height on the ladder of success. He is candi- date for the LL B. degree and expects to take up residence in Missouri. Page 108 THE DOCKET 192 5 SARAH WHEELER SECHREST Olney, Illinois T HE lady whose picture appears above was born on a farm in southern Illinois, where she passed successfully through the vari- ous stages of life, including measles and mumps, and from pig tails to bobbed hair. Her early education was obtained in the graded and high schools of the Prairie State and the Eastern Illinois State Normal Uni- versity. She is a member of the Eastern Star, Kappa Beta Pi, and Cy Pres Club. She enjoys swimming and Dame Rumor has whispered that she also likes to “step cn the gas.” Sarah specializes in domestic rela- tions, having taken unto herself a husband during her stay at National, where she has been a loyal and ener- getic promoter of class activities. She is a candidate for the TU.B. de gree and as Class Historian has done her bit to put “The Docket " across. We’ve found Sarah an exclient student, a friendly classmate, and al- ways willing to assist those who needed help. She expects to practice in Missouri with “hubby.” We part with regret, but wish her an abun- dance of good luck. S. EARL SEITZ Bowie, Maryland £4 tACK” first saw the light of day about twenty-five years ago at Bowie, Maryland. Sur- viving the country schools, he entered Central High School of this city and is already following his chosen bent in the Counsel’s office of the Federal Reserve Board, where he intends to shape his future. Of an excellent legal mind, progressive in every way, we have no doubt that his future will be very bright. He is a charter member of Phi Beta Gamma, of which he was His- torian and Registrar during 1923- 1924. He was elected Chief Justice of that fraternity for the school year 1924-1925. Seitz is a “bear” for work, and, in spite of “fessing” up to hobbies of horseflesh and baseball, still has time for his many friends. He is always thoughtful of the other chap, and for that reason has endeared himself to all who have come in contact with him. We wish him the success which lie so richly deserves. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 109 COLLMORE L. SHAWLER Bardstown, Kentucky IIILE Bardstown, Kentucky, was not the birthplace of that wonderful American lawyer, Abraham Lincoln, it is not far from there and perhaps Kentucky will re- peat herself in “Coll.” Incidentally, he admits most of our queries. He is married, is employed in the Treasury Department, is a member of the Masonic Fraternity, swims, 1) unts and likes good music, debates a little and belongs to the Rifle Club. Possessing a teacher’s certificate from Western Kentucky State Normal and having a legal and ana- lytical mind, we expect much of him, whether he decides in the future to give his talents to Washington’s wel- fare or return to the old home State to i-eform her. Shawler has political ambitions, is a careful student, a royal good scout, and has many friends who look to seeing his name in the Hall of Fame. JANET MELVIN SIKKEN Washington, D. C. ERE is an excellent student and joiner. After graduation from Central, Janet continued her studies in languages and science at George Washington University, and privately taught latin, music and stenography. As for being a “joiner,” Janet is a charter member of the National Women’s Party and the Spanish American Atheneum. She was one time president of the Admiral Dewey Naval Auxiliary to the United States Spanish War Veterans’ is a member of the National Society of the United States Daught- ers of the War of 1812, the Cy Pres Club and of the Inez Milholland Chapter of the National Woman’s Party. She will enjoy the distinction of re- ceiving the LL.B. and the M.P.L. de- grees this year. From her academic record and her interest in woman’s rights and suffrage, and judging from the organizations to which she adheres, it takes no great foresight to predict that here is one who has her Country’s interests at heart, as well as the interests of her own sex, and who will work hard for the ad- vancement of both. Though somewhat reticent, she has many close friends who regret to part from her. I ' t Nf T |r l Page 110 T HE DOCKET 192 5 CLARENCE E. SIPES Shady Grove, Kentucky BOUT seven years ago our friend Clarence came to Wash- ington from Shady Grove, in the Blue Grass State of Kentucky, where he attended public schools, Brown’s Private Academy, and the Bowling Green University. He has been em- ployed here in the Civil Service Com- mission and as an Auditor in the In- come Tax Unit of the Bureau of In- ternal Revenue. He is studious and likeable, one of those fellows who radiate good humor and fellowship wherever he goes. He married a Kentucky girl and settled down to study law. He takes the LL.B. de- gree this year, and after he “vaults the bar” expects to practice law in the West, making Equity his special- ty. He is fond of golf, which we have no doubt will help him in the practice of law, as he has been matching skill with a Scotchman down on the Speed- way links for some time past. His activities in the War College we like- wise believe will stand him in good stead in the future. “Speed” is his middle name, as anyone who has seen that green Nash could readily dis- cern. We wish him an abundance of success. ELLIS N. SLACK Provo, Utah 4 £ c LICKER” comes to us from , the Land of Utes. Born in Provo, Utah, he attended the local high school, graduating in the spring of 1918, and at once entered the service of his country in the World War. He now holds a responsi- ble position in the Internal Revenue Bureau. Prominent in school affairs, Ellis has been the quiet but active ad- herent of those undertakings which have advanced class spirit and the school welfare. He has served with distinction as Associate Editor of “The Docket,” and is a member of the Intercollegiate Law Fraternity of Sigma Delta Kappa. Ellis occoupies an enviable position in all of the fields of endeavor upon which he has entered, with a single exception, to wit, golf. Upon the golf links his activities have been a source of argu- ment to his friends, but notwithstand- ing his unskillfulness as a golfer, Ellis’s presence is always more than welcome because of his unbounded wit and good humor. He will receive the Bachelor’s degree in June. k yi ,- t ytv ix iv ix i v iv t iv i yi sk ' - iviv v iv »v tv -- tviv i -v ' i si i s t i -.. iviv ' ivivivi vi .■ i 1 9 2 5 T H E D 0 C K E T Page 111 N.

HAROLD SOTHORON Brentwood, Maryland HIS will introuduce “Southland,” as he is called by his friends, who arrived in Hughesville, Maryland, in 1896. He is an ac- countant and already has a large clientele who will undoubtedly also give him their legal problems to solve. He lost some gas while debating, but can “make ' em listen,” as he is already a member of the D.C. Bar. He plays the violin and joins a little, being a member of the City Club, Washington Canoe Club, Woodrow Wilson Club, Disabled American Veterans, War College and Knights of Columbus. Referring to the latter, appearances indicate that in the near future he will be spending his nights at home instead of with Columbus. “Southland” is aftor all three degrees but in a short time will be before them, — when his name is properly written. The class says good luck! Page 112 THE DOCKET 192 5 GEORGE E. SPALDING Spring-field, Massachusetts G EORGE E. is a Washingtonian by adoption and a civil engineer by experience as well as by pro- fession. He has a speaking acquaint- ance with certain Greek letters mean- ing membership in Phi Beta Gamma. George did not wait for the breeze to get him in 1917, but volunteered as a private in July, landed on the other side and started toward the front lines, where he finally arrived. After smelling powders, other than face or talcum, sent in his direction by “Heine,” George returned the comity of nations to the satisfaction of G.H. Q. and was promoted to a Lieutenan- cy. He tried to find a machine gun nest, which he and one of his good buddies took. The buddie is over there,” and what is left of George is here. “Bumped off” at Morlain Octo- ber, 1918, is George’s record in the A.E.F. After receiving his LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L degrees, up goes the shingle, and his conscientious tenacity will surely carry him to whatever goal in life he may aspire. WILLIAM THOMAS SPEER Wellington, Kansas W ILLIAM Thomas Speer, now of Washington but originally of Wellington, Kansas, Internal Revenue Auditor, did willfully, know- ingly, and with intention afore- thought, say, do, act and answer, “I do’,, in the presence of one “Jake,” a friend, and one other party now of the first part, known at “the Mrs.” Thus “Billy " comes to order. Speer volunteered for his Country’s cause, and came to Washington at a time when it was dryer than the western part of his home State. He answered “here” to roll call with the Air Service, and after the Armistice accepted a position with the Govern- ment. He is a Mason, a member of Joppa Lodge. His hobby is batting it about on the green, where he has full sway with his “putt.” He will receive his LL.B. degree this year. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 113 CHARLES STERN Washington, D. C. 0 call him Stern makes him backward. Just call him Charley. He was born and reared in Wash- ington and attended the public schools, Business High, Strayer’s Business School and Pace and Pace accounting school before coming to National. He is at present an Auditor in the Income Tax Unit, — “one of them Revenoors,” as they would say in the mountains of Tennessee. Charley isn’t much on hobbies, — just takes them all in, girls, dancing, canoeing and fast driving — “Mornin’ Judge. Your Honor, I wasn’t driving fast, just crawling along, the cop’s all wrong. He stated thirty miles, but the last time I looked at the speed- ometer it read only ninety.” During the World War Charley served as Sergeant in the Engineer Corps. He is a Mason, member of Federal Lodge No. 1. He will receive the degree of LL.B. this year and plans to engage in general practice, and we feel sure he will make a good but Stern lawyer. KIRBY A. STROLE Shenandoah, Virginia j- IRBY A. arrived in 1891, near Grove Hill, Page County, Vir- .ginia, where he attended the public schools and later removed to the peaceful town of Shenandoah. Longing for “the great white way,” he proceeded by way of Roanoke Col- lege, but finding this somewhat “tame” he plunged into the account- ing profession at Baltimore. He soon came over to Washington and at once made a “hit” in the Government service as an auditor. Kirby gained a valuable experience while being soiled with grease and dirt from service in the Motor Trans- portation Corps on duty overseas. Later, as a member of Battery B, 38th Regiment, C.A.C., he accepted his honorable discharge from the Service December, 1918, with that quiet whisper, “Ready for duty at my Country’s call anytime.” Kirby is doing well by degrees — he already has a B.C.S. from the Washington School of Accountancy, plus two years of graduate work at the American University and an LL.B. from National. Page 114 THE DOCKET 19 2 5 ALTON HAROLD SWINSON Miami, Florida WINSON was bom at an early age in Gloucester, Massachusetts. Upon the entry of the United States into the World War in April, 1917, he enlisted in the Navy and served as radio operator at the Naval Stations at Key West and Miami, Florida, Bordeaux, France, and on the U.S.S. “West Corum.” While in Washington, friend Swinson has been employed at the Interstate Commerce Commission, but intends to ented the practice of law in Miami upon gradua- tion. Swinson is single and a mem- ber of the Masonic Fraternity. He distinguished himself as prosecuting attorney in the renowned case of United States v. Kilroy Gunn, show- ing a particular gift in the art of producing evidence. He is still en- deavoring to explain why the photo- graphs of the deceased bore such a striking resemblance to the District Attorney. It is rumored that the fair sex of the Nation’s Capital hold no attractions for him, for reasons which may perhaps be associated with the fact that he is a holder of a special post office box from which each day a daintily scented letter is extracted. We predict him a brilliant and successful career, crowned with appointment to the Federal bench. PAUL D. TAGGART Silver Spring, Maryland P AUL D., or “Dutch” if you know him well, is “right there with the goods.” He is trying to find something in the Naval Laboratory and pursues research after research, but being of Irish decent and known as “Dutch” is enough to drive any- one to research as to why h’e Is Dutch when he is Irish, and, if Irish, how can he be Dutch. “Dutch” is a member of the Ameri- can Legion. He believes in signals, even to the extent of doing his bit with the Signal Corps during the World War. His military career began in the high school cadets, and aft v learning his front foot from his hind foot, he stepped into the D.C. National Guard, so when war started he was wholly prepared for it. Look out for “Dutch” when he gets the Bachelor and Master’s degrees, ye D.C. and Maryland practitioners, for six of his immediate family are attorneys at law already. “Dutch” arrived in ancient George- town in 1894, early started rustling on his own “hook.” and has made a splendid success. Keep it up “Dutch,” so say we all. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 115 E. CLYDE THOMAS Salisbury, North Carolina HERE was much jollification in Salisbury on December 16, 1902, when E. Clyde was introduced to society. He began his education at Rowan Academy Grammar School, after which he did a “hitch” at Spencer High School, Spencer, North Carolina, and entered Mount Pleasant Collegiate Institute. Here he “quit- uated” and entered National, where he, and we, expect to see him receive his LL.B. Clyde has many good traits, among which is a happy disposition, which is indicated by a smile that will not wear off. He has been an active mem- ber of the War College and persists in following the “ball.” — if it isn’t golf, it is tennis, and if neither of these, he takes his handy rifle and goes hunting for game. He expects to land a chicken ere long, so, girls, be- ware! He could then put into effect the debating proclivities which have distinguished him in his class activi- ties. After Clyde hangs out the “shingle” his address will probably be Charlotte, North Carolina. Go to it, Clyde, the War College is behind you. GEORGE STRAHN THOMPSON Washington, D. C. 44 rTlOMMY” hails from the Old I Dominion, a real specimen of the true Virginian whose contempt for the personal pronoun is comparable only with that of Shy- lock when pressing his claim for the coveted pound of flesh. Quiet, unas- suming and pleasant, he is most hap- py when redering a service to his fel- low-man. Thompson is a member of the American Legion, Veterans of Foreign Wars, Knights of Columbus, Reserve Officers’ Association and Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. During the war he served at various posts throughout the United States. He now holds a commission as Captain in the Adjutant General’s Depart- ment, Officers’ Reserve Corps. Thompson contributed a very inter- esting and illuminating article on “The Panama Canal” to the National University Review, his knowledge of the subject having been gained while employed in the Zone. “Tommy” won his LL.B. at Nation- al last June, and is now a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L. degrees. After graduation he expects to specialize upon work in connection with the interstate commerce law. I-;-!-:-;-:-;-:-:-:-:-:-:-: Page 116 THE DOCKET 192 5 WILLIAM SAMUEL TOWNER Washington, D. C. “Wi rILD Bill” is known for his love of the great outdoors and longing for the wide, open spaces. He cherishes memories that take him hack to the times when he used to “lope” over the hills on horseback, and wear rough and ready field clothes. He was born in Brook- lyn, New York, in 1876, attended grammar and high school in New York City, and met the practical side of life as errand boy in a retail grocery at $2.50 per week and board, lie studied telegraphy, bookkeeping and stenography, and was admitted to practice law in New York City after having completed an evening course in law. In 1911 he answered the call of the West, and several years were spent in the civil service in Oregon, Montana and New Mexico until 1917, when he enlisted in the Army Signal Corps and went over- seas. He returned to Washington after the war and was awarded tlm LL.B. by National last June. He is now a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L degrees. He is a member of the Bar of New York, Wyoming and the District of Columbia; a member of the Kenneth H. Nash Post No. 8, American Legion ; a Scottish Rite Mason and a Noble of the Mystic Shrine, and promises to become a legal light of unusual brilliancy. CHARLES E. TRAVERS Washington, D. C. T RAVERS resides in Washington and keeps well posted in modern literature as Cataloguer in the Library of Congress. Mrs. Travers keeps Charles posted as to class hours, as his time is well taken up by his studies, Phi Beta Gamma, Knights of Pythias and the Veterans of Foreign Wars. After receiving his “balling out” in the Army, Charles persisted in hold- ing on to the ball and is quite a fan when it comes to the horseliide. He served his apprenticeship with the Colors in the 29th Division. Well done, old man, well done. History shows what the boys of that Divi- sion did, and only they know what they went through beside Vin, mud and shell holes! While “up front” Pershing came across Travers spear- ing cooties with a needle and asked if “he was picking them out,” to which Charles replied, “No, Sir, I am taking them as I find them.” Charles is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. Keep your eye on him, as he is bound to put it over, over here. I 1 9 2 5 THE DOCK E T Page 117 C. W TYLER Washington, D. C. C ARL, or “Tommy,” as he is best known, is a native of Wash- ington, and graduate of Eastern High School. In his high school days he was on the football team and in numerous other athletics, but now that he has taken on a few more years and become a lawyer, almost, his exercise is derived from golf and horseback riding. He cuts a mean figure in the saddle. His particular delight is to mount a fiery steed that will start off on his haunches, take the bit in his teeth and hit a 1.50 clip. He characterizes his golf as “awful but enthusiastic.” Beware of players who speak thus! Carl is also skipper of a fleet on the Potomac, where he is often seen piloting a trusty canoe up the river in the good old summer time. He is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa and a candidate for the LL.B. degree. He is assisting in the management of the finances of the United States in the Treasury Depart- ment until he is admitted to the Bar. Then, we feel certain Success will crown his efforts (unless, perchance, a client should beat him to it.) FRANK A. URICE Washington, D. C. RANK A. comes from West Vir- ginia. He has the M.A and B. C.S. degrees from Bowling Green University, where he took an active part in student activities. He has had experience in the teaching of ac- countancy and has held a number of important positions with the Bureau of Internal Revenue, where he may now be found during business hours. He is a Shriner and his favorite recreations are dancing, golf and fish- ing. He served Uncle Sam faithfully and well throughout the recent at- tempt to make the Kaiser unpopular. He is a quiet and thorough student and has a wide circle of warm friends who wish him success in the field of law. He is a candidate for the Bachelor’s degree and the possessor of an ambition that will carry him to the front. Page 118 T H E DOCKET 1925 LYNCH DOYLE WALLER Washington, D. C. HE above photograph represents our popular classmate, Mr. Wal- ler, formerly of Fort Reno, Okla- homa, but for the past several years a resident of the District of Columbia. He attended numerous institutions of learning, finally taking up the study of accountancy, which he has made his work up to the present time. He is active in school affairs, clubs, dances an ddebating, and is a mem- ber of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. He also is a member of the American Legion, having served Uncle Sam throughout the World War. He is a candidate for the LL.B. de- gree and after graduation expects to open up his office in Washington. L.D. makes and holds friends by the score and we are confident he will make an enviable mark in the legal world. He is a deep student whose opinions upon legal questions com- mand respect both in recitations and among his associates. He served upon the 1925 Class Ring Committee and assisted in the editing of “The Docket.” BERNARD L. WALSH Grand Rapids, Michigan £ £ JT) ERNIE” hails from the ) furniture center of the world, Grand Rapids, Michigan, and arrived at National via that famous institution of learning, Georgetown University. Although he has been with us but a short time, he has well merited the esteem of the class by his thorough knowledge of the law and the application of its principles. “Bernie” is already a member of the District of Columbia Bar, having suc- cessfully passed the examination in June, 1924, and he is now planning to take the Michigan Bar examination, since he intends to practice in that State. During his sojourn in Wash- ington he has been secretary to Senator Harry F. Ashurst of Arizona. He is single, a member of the Knights of Columbus and Delta Chi fraternity, admits a fondness for s ' olf. and served in the Navy during the World War. It is our unanimous opinion that “Bernie” will be among the foremost at the Michigan Bar in the days and years to come. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 119 WILLIAM H. WEBB Washington, D. C. ILL,” our “Silent Cal” type classmate, will be a great dis- appointment if he does not live up to what we unanimously pre- dict as his future career. He has dis- tinguished himself in the Moot Court in addressing the court and jury in an effective and truly legal style. His aim is for the LL.B., LL.M. and M.P.L degrees, and he will soon have them affixed to his name through his habit of ranking around the top of the list of examination results. He puts much time upon his home studies, but still seems to enjoy golf, tennis, bridge and “fliwermg” as much as ever. His position at the House of Representatives is a re- sponsible one as Secretary to the Com- mittee on Revision of Laws. “Bill’ was in active service over- seas for two years, serving under General Dawes. While there he was appointed a member of the Fields Mission to investigate political and economical conditions in Berlin and the Baltic Provinces of Russia, and was commissioned a Lieutenant after his return to the States. “Bill” has worked faithfullv as an Associate Editor of “The Docket.” and we know he will be a winner in practice. MILLARD FARRAR WEST Chevy Chase, Maryland M R. West entered the Internal Revenue Service in 1898 as a Deputy Collector in his native State of Kentucky, and came to Washington in 1901, where he con- tinued in the Revenue Service until July, 1922. He was appointed to many positions, the last three being Deputy Commissioner of Accounts; Acting Commissioner of Internal Revenue and Assistant Prohibition Commissioner. Mr. West was de- tailed by the Commissioner of In- ternal Revenue to the Finance Com- mittee of the Senate when the first big revenue measure was being con- sidered in 1917, and was prominently mentioned for the position of Com- missioner of Internal Revenue under the Harding Administration. Mr. West is now the resident partner of a prominent Chicago law firm, with offices in the Edmonds Building-. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity and is interested in outdoor sports. He took bis A.B. degree some years ago from Garrard College and is now a candidate for the LL.B. at National. His success is already assured, in which he has the congratulations of his classmates. Page 120 THE DOCKET 192 5 GEORGE C. WHITE Fort Edward, New York G 7 EORGE C. was born in ‘York r State more than twenty-one ' years ago, and when a small boy developed a liking for hard work, which is still one of his attributes. George is quiet and a careful student of the law. He already has the B.C.S. degree and makes daily use of it in his work as an Internal Revenue auditor. He is a Mason, an Odd Fellow, and is a member of the American Legion, having seen hard service in the Meuse-Argonne Sector. He is a candidate for the LL.B. and will doubtless return for the LL.M. ROBERT CLINTON WHITELY North Wilkesboro, North Carolina 44 XT HIT” (alias “Jake”), from 1 1 Wilkes County, North ” ” Carolina, with a heart as big as the hills in which he was reared, is a friend to everyone. He is tall, straight and broad shouldered, rather handsome in spite of his square jaw and substantial feet. Being studiously inclined, and an earnest worker in Uncle Sam’s em- ploy, he finds little time for the gay- er things in life. He is a model young man, with no bad habits, un- less a weakness for a cozy armchair and tranquility may be classed as such. Too busy with law to follow particular hobbies, he plays pinochle occassionally and always wins when he has a good partner. He is said to be a careful driver, but tours mostly over the same route. He is a member of Federal Lodge No. 1, F.A. and A.M., and the Nation- al University Masonic Club. During the World War he “did his bit” with the American Expeditionary Forces. “Whit” plans to practice law in North Carolina, and, judging from his ability as a cross-examiner, ad- verse evidence will not be damaging. We anticipate a glowing success in his legal career. 1925 THE DOCKET Page 121 JOHN H. WHITTINGTON Tampa, Florida FTER one has crossed the bar- riers of “Dick’s” quiet reserve, he is puzzled at the many ave- nues leading to his castle of friend- ship. “Dick” is to his friends like an absorbing book, every page contain- ing an interesting story within itself. He is well acquainted with the goat family, if his membership in fraternal organizations mean anything, being a Mason and a Shriner; in 1923 he presided as Associate Chief Justice of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and in 1924 was elevated to the dignity of Chief Justice. He was also Vice-President of the Nation- al University Masonic Club for the 1923-24 school year. His fraternal- ism is only exceeded by his patriot- ism, as witnessed by his service record in the late conflict wherein he participated largely with the A.E.F. “Dick” is a candidate for every- thing National has to offer, the LL.B., LL.M., and M.P.L. degrees, which en- lightens us as to his future plans. May the opinions he is certain to hand down from the bench be as learned as his accomplishments in our class- rooms! R. G. WOOD Chicago, Illinois £ AP” ought to possess the I . versatility and acquaintance with human nature essential to a successful law practice, since he was born some forty-odd years ago in the frigid area of northern New York, and spent about ten years tour- ing the United States and parts of the torrid zone in the interests of Uncle Sam’s Army. He now hails from the Windy City of Chicago, which, he assures us, is the greatest on earth, not even excepting Alex- andria and Highlandtown. He is at present engaged in the peaceful oc- cupation of helping to gather income taxes, but says he hopes later to practice law “somewhere west of the Mississippi.” “Cap” is a Mason, organizer and charter member of Sigma Mu Sigma Fraternity, a member of the Ionic Club, and has been National Treasur- er of the U.S. Army Quartermaster Association for several years. It is whispered that he also qualifies for membership in the War College. He is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and was selected to be Editor-in-chief of “The Docket.” Page 122 THE DOCKET I, ' •• I f ■ t N M f. ■ I I 19 2 5 E. R. WOODSON Washington, D. C. O UR friend Woodson has been a resident of the District since birth, and has a large circle of friends and acquaintances, both about the city and within the halls of Na- tional, who wish him well and look with pride upon his accomplishments. His public spirit is evidenced by con- structive work in the Citizens’ As- sociation of his home community and by his activity in school debating. He has devoted much energy to the popularization of public speaking, and mention need merely be made here to recall his unusual poise and ability in this art, so useful to a lawyer, to the minds of his classmates, not a few of whom, including the writer, have envied this attainment, which won him the school prize in 1923. E. R. plays golf, is an indefatigable worker, and is a candidate for the LL.B. and B.C.S. degrees. There is no questioning his prospect of suc- cess, and National may be pardoned her vanity when he stands at the Bar. HOWARD B. WRIGHT Middletown, Virginia UR friend, whose likeness ap- pears herewith, is a quiet, studi- ous person who hails from the Valley of the Shenandoah. We haven’t learned much about this young Webster except that he was born in Middletown, Virginia where, it is said, the owls hoot in the day- time. He is a Mason, a member of the National University Masonic Club, and a charter member of Sigma Mu Sigma Fraternity. Howard obtained his early education in the schools of his native town, graduating from the Middletown High School with the Class of 1915. During the World War he served in the United States Army. Wright is a candidate for the de- gree of Bachelor of Laws. He is a painstaking student and we predict that he will do credit to the grand old State of his nativity. May he realize the success which he merits! 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 123 JOHN HENRY YOUNG Norfolk, Virginia M R. Young, a typical representa- tive of the Old Dominion, comes from Norfolk and has many friends at National. “Cy,” as his friends call him, has taken much interest in the debates in National. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity and the Masonic Order, and is always glad to boost his class along in every way possible. He is fond of the great out-doors, liking such sports as football, canoeing and baseball, and his chief indoor diver- sion is dancing. He studied two years at Washington and Lee and one year at Virginia Polytechnic and was bayonet instructor at Camp Lee dur- ing the recent scuffle with “Heine.” “Cy” is working for the LL.B. de- gree and from the efforts he has put forth in school his success as a lawyer seems assured. He fell for one of Cupid’s arrows just a few months since. This we had been expecting for some time, for we had already perceived his fondness for a certain young lady. He expects to reside in the District of Columbia and practice his chosen profession in our midst. REVERIES Mary has a little lamb Whose hair is glossy black, And everything that Mary hears To the Dean die carries back. He follows her to school each night And never leaves her side.

So hand in hand, through school they go; They squeal, they grease, they pass. But that which mystifies and puzzles Is, where in Heck they get the brass. Appearances go a long way in this super- ficial world. We take people at their face value. Therefore, my son, shave every day, shine your shoes, be neat in appearance. The man who is careless in his dress may be a wonder, but the world won’t believe it. — The Gimlet. DAY, JUNE 6, 1935 - THIRTY-TWO PAGES NATIONAL STUDENTS HOLD REUNION Famous Old Class of 1925 Renews Acquaintanceships MANY NOTABLES PRESENT The Honorable L. B. Hord, National, ’25, now General Manager of Washington’s lead- ing evening paper and chairman of the reception committee, has placed its columns at your scribes’ disposal to perpetuate the record of this most memorable gathering. Of course, we arrived early so that accord- ing to ancient custom we might miss nothing. Who are we ? You surely remem- ber the former Miss Cooper and our old friend, John P. Divine? She is now Senior Senator from Rhode Island, and hands in- stinctively fished in pockets for money in memory of Year Book days as she passed among the throng. We saw countenances light up in anticipation of a spontaneous outburst of humor as old classmates grasped him by the hand. By special courtesy of Honorable E. A. Blosk, General Manager of the General Electric Company, W. T. Leake, President of the Bessemer Coal, Iron and Land Com- pany, and L. H. Sothoron, Chairman of the Columbia State C. P. A. Board, members of the entertainment committee, guests who came in Fords (Edsel still makes them), were permitted to check them at the door along with hats, sticks and other para- phenalia; convenient parking space near the building was arranged by E. C. Algire, Czar of Washington traffic, and landing for air- planes was provided on grounds once occupied by one of National’s former com- peting law schools. One of the next to show up was curley headed Class President O’Brien, — still a bachelor, favoring his “dogs” (good sea dogs too), and now Judge Advocate of the Navy. George Martin, who was always Treasurer of something, informs us that he is now President of the First National Bank of Atlanta, the most prominent city of the South’s premier State. The firm of Carey, Quirnby and Fields appeared en masse. The senior member basked in the glory of a new plug hat, and informed the gathering that the firm has long since settled the question as to whether a case may be thrown out of court on the ground of a slip of the tongue. As the crowd increased a certain readily recalled element felt the evening would be incomplete without the moral uplift of the War College, which rapidly proceeded to its deliberations (?), consuming attention for quite some moments. We hardly know who was elected to what, but about the time election results were announced a mild flow of gentle language was heard at the entrance, occasioned by an exchange of courtesies between Wood, Editor of the 1925 Year Book, and the door-keeper, who thought that the high boots, spurs and two gallon hat belonged elsewhere, but “Smiley” Buice identified him and we learned of the big ranch “West of the Rockies”. “Smiley” now has the most flourishing collection agency in Washington; and say, folks, when he gives out word that he is after the coin it takes nearly four men to carry it up to him. Our attention was next directed toward the other end of the hall where a speecn was in process of delivery in resonant and stentorian tones, accompanied by suitable gestures, and George, alias Mansfield, Moore, Senator and Kentucky “Culnel”, was responsible for this outbreak. Just then Sam Mullen, former Governor of Virginia, I blew in. He tells us he is preparing to run Page 126 THE DOCKET 192 5 for Vice President with La Follette. Yes, La Follette is still running, although we don’t know just which way. And Tom Hewitt, assisted by G. T. Hunter, has in- vented a new insurance policy that is invis- ible, incontestable, everlasting, and will prevent both lire, theft, tornadoes and col- lisions. He practices law on the side, and tries to preserve order in the line of custo- mers who are overflowing the office to pur- chase these wonderful policies. Sechrest and Sechrest just flew in from Kansas City. The senior member is Mayor and the junior is about to retire to devote her time to art. Her latest painting hangs over in the Corcoran gallery. It is a sink- ing ship at sea drawn with one line, — the line represents the top of the water and the ship is beneath. Detwiler came in and we learned that he is now Mayor, City Council, Justice of the Peace, Fire Marshal, Coroner, School Commissioner and Veterinary Inspec- tor of Three Rivers, Michigan, but we must not give “Det” too much space at the ex- pense of others. Poore contracted a liking for certain things French during the World War and he has been so successful since 1925 giving Ford driving lessons that he now gets over to Paris every year to spend the winter months. He has also reaped a rich harvest of shekels from his monogram design for non-skid pancakes. Slack, the sheik from Nevada, Utah or some place out West, arrived a little late, which he reluctantly explained was occa- sioned by members of a school girl con- vention mistaking him for a prominent movie actor down at Union Station. It was a great pleasure to meet Misses Bassett and Sikken again. Dignity seems their stronghold no longer. As Judge of the Juvenile Court Miss Bassett’s keen, search- ing eye makes one tremble in his shoes, and Probation Officer Sikken grasped our hands with a grip that made us wince. Pat Beavers, with studios in New York, London and Paris, draws those popular pictures which appear in the leading dailies and which have driven Bud Fisher and Webster into the small town weeklies. We recognized “Fick” Fickle, of Fickle, Indiana, leading lawyer and Mayor of that fickle town. Our Class seems to have deve- loped many realtors. There is Kerwin, for instance, who has sold all of Anacostia ex- cept St. Elizabeth’s, and expects to close a deal for that with some members of the Class of 1936 within the next few days. And “Mike” Lucanish is just on the verge of selling McKeesport, Pennsylvania, to one of the big steel companies. “You will re- member”, as Professor Johnson would say, the two Charlies, Lowery and Jackson, who were stellar lights in admiralty, and you will, no doubt, be pleased to learn that they now own and operate a ferry boat line on the St. John’s River. Well, we could ramble on in this way for hours, but the hands of the clock kept moving and hands of guests began to clap in evidence of a desire that those in charge “start something”. Soon thereafter the floor began to undulate and the Chancellor, jolly as ever, came down the aisle to open the formalties by a brief reminder of those days when we reveled in a “few simple fundamental principles”, involving estates, remainders, Shelley’s Case, and sundry other forms of sawdust. Justice Siddons, retired from active pro- fessional life, followed with a few appro- priate remarks addressed to “this most intelligent body of students”. Our good friend, O’Donnell, handed out a fine line of apple sauce, and, according to ancient cus- tom another of our former instructors took occasion to differ with him. When th e applause subsided sufficiently for Judge Willett to speak he informed us there were still twelve months in the year. The next speaker was Governor Cama ' ier, followed by Senators Reamer and Murphy, and Congressmen Ehrlich and De Souza, all of the State of Columbia. Yes, the former District has had the vote for a number of years. Of course, there are some who are “agin” the Government, but that is true everywhere except in Switzerland. And, speaking of Switzerland, we just learned that an old classmate who couldn’t be here tonight, Mr. R. E. Davis, is now Admiral of the Swiss Navy. By special invitation Viault, of the Class of ’26, delivered an ora- tion which brought loud applause and pro- voked much laughter. It was learned later in the evening that he is now prepared to sell anything from Fords to stock in the Washington monument. Woe to the unfortunate client whose op- ponent retains as counsel the firm of Tag- gart, Taggart, Taggart, Taggart and Tag- gart, the most active member of which Is none other than our old friend, Paul D., strong on the roll call, who, when called upon for remarks, arose to the occasion with dignity and politely informed the assembly that, “I believe the c-ourt is wrong because I have searched the author-i-ties from 1316 B. C. down to date and find no cases justi-fying the court’s ruling.” Once more Dixie has yielded a noble and loyal son upon the altar of the Presidency, and as his Excellency David W. Pinkston as- cended the roster to favor we less prominent mortals with the resonance of his voice, a well-remembered wave of anticipation passed over the assembly, which was again to listen to those timely phrases and again to be bathed in that benificent smile before which heretofore and otherwise obstreper- ous legislators are wont to stampede into line to do the bidding of our old classmate, who by smoothness of tongue and pleasant- 1925 THE DOCKET Page 127 ness of manner, has succeded in accomplish- ing that which the under-slung pipe could never “put across”. Waller’s Jewelry, the leading competitor of Tiffany’s in the east, was represented by L.D., senior member of the firm, whom you will remember in days of yore as instru- mental in providing the class with pins, rings, pennants, etc. We are also told that a couple of prominent out of town attorneys, Honorable A. O. Hearne, of Texas, and “Bob” Whitley, Candidate for Governor of North Carolina, are also inter- ested in this jewelry hobby. We experienc- ed no little pleasure in renewing acquaint- anceship with A. E. Dorer, now Clerk of the Supreme Court of the United States, and learned with gratification of the man- ner in which he presides as Chief Justice of all the Moot Courts of National. An interesting cable was read from friend Morales, now Chief Justice of the Supreme Court at Havana, Cuba. Just about this moment a flushed and breathless young lady hurried in, the former Miss Emmons, now Congresswoman from Mary- land, fresh from the scene of an important conference with former Governor Ritchie, Mr. McAdoo, Caesar, Horatio, and a number of other notables. Following we recognized Giovannoni himself, Ambassador Extra- ordinary and Minister Plenipotentiary to Czecho-Slovakia. It was enough to spe’l his name back in school days without now having to add all the rest of this difficult and highly technical phraseology. The Chairman of the evening read an interesting newspaper clipping portraying the speed and skill with which cases were being handled in a certain court in Phila- delphia, and Miss Cleary, one-time Moot Court expert, modestly admitted being re- sponsible for the article. We were told that lady bailiffs in Judge Cleary’s court give disturbers no quarter, and the lady Chief of Police is ably backing up Judge Cleary’s attempt to clean up the city. “Bing” Gottshall was on hand and we ob- served a bit of a strut, which was explained by the athletic successes of his offspring at a prominent eastern college. Both son and daughter are upholding the family honor on the gridiron. Yes, girls have been play- ing the game for years. If you want a competitor incarcerated in St. Elizabeth’s, or if you want to get a friend out, call upon “Doc” Grantham, alienist, who possesses a happy combination of skill in both medicine and law. His success in the chosen field has been un- paralleled. All members of the great Boston firm of Spalding, Byrne and Rush graced the assembly with their presence, every appearance exemplifying the excep- tion to that threadbare quotation about a prophet in his own country. A nationally-known law firm, with head offices in Washington and twenty-five branches throughout the country, specializ- ing in the adjustment of 1917 income tax claims, is composed of Leiter, White, Gately and Stern. They expect this work to last twenty years more. We learned with pleasure that Whittington’s practice has been so renumerative that he now devotes the major portion of his time to building up fraternities in various colleges, and are happy to note his success in this prolific field. Brannon, Towner and Bunten are now popular professors at the home school, and J. H. Young, just up from Richmond, informed us that in a few more years J. H., Junior, will enter National. The same old “Barney” Krucoff is closely following the tactics of our beloved Pro- fessor Conrad Syme, as Attorney General for the State of Columbia, and Woodson, home on a brief visit, was immensely enjoy- ing the relaxation from his duties as Ambas- sador at the Court of St. James. We have closely followed his speeches, reproduced by the press, and our graduate year predic- tions have been well fulfilled. Back in ’25 the Master of the Rolls and the school Secretary experienced no little difficulty with the identity of the three Browns, and we now learn that with due regard to the Post Office authorities and all others, they have formed the partnership of Brown, Brown and Brown, which has met with marked success. W. H. Webb, whose name we see so often in print these days, has won great admira- tion by the skill and diplomacy with which he has represented the Government at the Kaiser’s court in Berlin, and David Horn- stein, Esquire, has gained deserved promi- nence by ably assisting the Government in the liquor prosecutions which jammed the docket until recently. Lee Denton, accom- panied by Shawler and Henley, recently returned from an African hunting expedi- tion and presented the Smithsonian Insti- tution with some wonderful specimens of the ichthyosis cassawarius, “whatever that is”, as Professor Patterson would say. The expedition had planned to bring the missing link, but, unfortunately, Collector of Cus- toms H. B. Wright, at the port of New York, had been at one time a Bryanite, and would not permit this rare specimen to be entered. We fear that personal feeling swayed judi- cial thought in this instance. Valuable scientific equipment used by the expedition was furnished by J. W. Clampitt, President of the Union Trust Company, who also donated some advice. The quiet and dignified K. A. Strole, gave up the practice of law long ago and is now being mentioned as the forthcoming Bishop of his denomination. Frank Marcinski is reflecting great credit upon National by his capable adminstration of the Department of Page 128 THE DOCKET 1925 Foreign Affairs in the State Department. A cable was read from Prospero C. Sanidad, el Presidente de la Kepublica de los Islas Filipinas, who regretted his inability to attend the reunion; he took occasion to mention the recent conferring of a Distin- guished Service Medal upon General S. P. Almiranez, Commander in Chief of the Armies of the Phipippines. His cablegram also stated that De Leon has just been commissioned Admiral of the Philippine Navy. The successful firm of Salwitz and Samsury has won considerable prominence with its successes in the practice of inter- national law, and it is rumored that the members are about to publish a new text- book upon this interesting ( ? ) subject. Harrison Bates has just completed a new bridge across the Gulf of Mexico, having- resumed engineering shortly after graduat- ing in law. He has won distinction by numerous engineering feats, among which may be mentioned an ingenious device which enables pedestrians and automobiles to cross Thirteenth and F at the same time without accident. Our journalistic instinct urges mention of the new “Twelve in line” Sun car driven by Honorable Clarence Sipes. It would seem that human heart could wish nothing more in modern transportation, yet Clarence says it is a lead baby compared to the green Nash which defied traffic cops back in ’25. By the way, we think it a fitting time to call the roll of the Hole-In One Club. You will recall that no incon- siderable number of 1925 graduates con- fessed a weakness for the ancient and honor- able game, and it does old National proud to hereby record that those gentlemen have attained the pinnacle of human desire. Here they are: J. J. Ardigo, H. N. Benoit, Ralph L. Chambers, Robert W. Coyne, C. R. Creighton, Harry E. McGill, Harry W. McKinnis, John J. O’Donnell, S. E. Seitz, William T. Speer, F. A. Dawson and E. Thomas. These enthusiasts formed the National University Chapter of tire Hole- In-One Club, and voted the senior member a mahogany wrist watch, equipped with Westing-house shock absorbers, as a slight token of their regard. We feared they would be too proud to associate with the proletariat, but they personified gracious- ness during the reunion. A cable was read from Miss Anne Scheiber, now upon the law faculty of one of the leading British Universities. Frank A. Urice informs us that he finds clients plentiful up in West Virginia, and he is in the market for a couple of promising young- partners to help with the damage suits arising from the continued civil war in the mining country. He also states that not- withstanding the repeal of the Volstead act, the moonshine bush is still found in some parts of the mountains. This is a curious plant, at the roots of which jugs of corn may be found, if one knows just the proper bush to examine. F. B. Germon is attracting considerable public notice as President of Hibbs and Company, well-known brokers. G. S. Thompson could not resist the call of the tropics and is again located in the Canal Zone, where, we are told, he has the law industry just about cornered. Mr. M. F. West is the new Secretary of the Treasury in President Pinkston’s Cabinet, and he is said to be the greatest Secretary of the Treasury since the days of Hamilton. S. J. Gabaldon, Attorney General of the Philippine Republic, was present, notwith- standing the great distance he had to journey. Friend Bleecker now occupies the influential position in Wall Street that was once held by the Morgans; and our former classmates, C. S. Bailey and E. V. Byrne, who during their school days loved to paddle canoes on the Potomac, are now Admirals in the United States Navy. J. W. Girvin and C. J. O’Brien have found their true calling in the diplomatic service, the former being Ambassador to France, and the latter at the Court of Spain. R. J. Flood also has just been appointed to the diplomatic service as Ambassador to the Argentine. Mr. B. L. Walsh has gathered to himself great stores of worldly goods as General Counsel for the Ford Motor Company, in his home State, and C. W. Tyler, who used to enjoy riding, now has a string of horses reaching from Pimlico to Latonia. John Andrews now owns the Washington base- ball team, which, you will recall, won the pennant last year, for the first time since Clark Griffith relinquished the helm. B. R. Bodner has a big law practice up in ’York State, and is being boosted as candidate for Governor. N. H. Solman and Millard Blum listened to the call of their home state and are now practicing successfully in Cali- fornia, where, they say, the sun shines three hundred and sixty-seven days out of every year. P. E. Jamieson is Editor-in- Chief of the new Corpus Juris, and “W. D.” is now Chief Justice of the Supreme Court. Albin Pearson is Prosecuting Attorney for Cook County, Illinois, and classmates Risley, Clark, Halstead and Hester have attained stellar success in the practice of Patent law. Since the retirement of Clarence Darrow, A. H. Swinson is the attorney to whom unfortunates accused of crime now turn; his fame for the manufacture of suitable evidence, which commenced with the trial of Kilroy Gunn, is now noised throughout the country. Oil magnate, W. T. Joyner, was present from Oklahoma in full force, wearing the conventional broad rimmed Stetson, and M. E. McKeown,the senior Oklahoma Congress- man was with him. Glenn Hiatt, Governor of Colorado, was observed shaking hands with old friends, and M. J. Reidy informs 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 129 us that there is much kale to be harvested in the field of Medical Jurisprudence. You, of course, recall G. M. Prevost and his in- separable friend, “Tow Head” Edmonds; they are still together, now comprising a prosperous local law firm. We were glad also to greet General Maddox, now Chief of Engineers of the United States Army. Thomas F. Burke listened to the pleadings of an old love and is now editor of the New York Times. The former Miss Goebel, whose picture we see so frequently in news- papers, is the leading power in the Woman’s Party. C. E. Travers owns the New York Yankees, and promises to give Andrews a run for his money this season. S. N. Maclnnis is in greater demand for his political campaign speeches than was that famous platform hero who talked so much and ran so often. Judge Hinder- liter, of the Illinois Court of Appeals, has rendered decisions which will be regarded by posterity as superior to those of John Marshall. E. V. Coons has hired private detectives to keep the throng of clients from battering down the doors of his offices, and R. G. Buckelew decided to take up the study of medicine and is now one of the leading surgeons in Bellevue Hospital. He has per- fected a difficult but lucrative operation heretofore less skillfully done, and now known to physicians as the Buckelew opera- tion, by which the patient’s bank roll is quickly and almost painlessly removed. His weekly clinics are crowded with those seek- ing to acquire his masterful technique. H. F. Cooper returned to Muscle Shoals, where he has charge of the Ford interests. Sure, Henry finally secured control, and the people have been interested observers of the wonderful success attained. Granville Bradford now occupies the posi- tion in Washington real estate circles for- merly enjoyed by Harry Wardman. S. S. Cramer maintains a studio at the May- flower, where he instructs upon a curious device known as the violin, but one must have a letter of introduction from Fritz Kreisler before Sam will condescend to diagnose his talent. B. S. Ranieri, former Governor of Pennsylvania, has resumed the practice of law in Pittsburg, and Congress- man C. I. Haycraft is codifying the Minne- sota laws. “Chet” Gray is now Dean of the Northwestern University, and J. P. Gross publishes the Dallas News, foremost Southwestern daily. The once Mrs. Ellis has given up her legal career and is engaged in the pleasant and responsible duties of managing a home. J. DeCicco, whose hobby was autos, is the inventor of a new mechani- cal roach that can be readily carried in the tool box of small cars and used to great advantage in towing them home. Congress- woman Mattie Poindexter has won renown with her campaign speeches throughout Kentucky. H. B. Green, of Alexandria, has just been made appeal Judge, and we look for some abstruse reasoning in the Virginia reports henceforth. Lawyer Paine is now campaigning for Camalier’s job as Governor of Columbia, and we anticipate a hot race. M. Franzman, a prominent law pi’ofessor at Yale, presented the Chairman of the evening with a nickle-plated copy of his latest work on Evidence. Juan Estevez is now Judge of the Superior Court of Porto Rico, and friend Bogue is at present Adjutant General of the State of Maine. Honorable Earl Hendrick came “all the way from Ioway”; we didn’t see the covered wagon, but he brought along the long bar- relled gun and haouu dawg. The insurance business of J. G. Herman rivals that of our friends Hewitt and Hunter in prosperity. Herman tells us that he has just paid a loss upon a policy written to insure a group of tourists against broken necks while looking up at the Monument. Eldridge has gone away down east to practice at Eastport, Maine. Hussey is Solicitor for the Illinois Steel Company, with offices at Gary, Indiana, and Demarest, President of the Olds Motors at Lansing, is also National Commander of the Ameri- can Legion. John H. Pigg, former Governor, now Senior Senator from Kentucky, and Imperial Potentate of the Nobles of the Mystic Shrine, brought the conclave to an official close by a suitable outburst of oratory, at the climax of which he presented the Chair- man of the reception committee with a beautiful transparent golf bag, a set of invisible clubs, and a silver trimmed auto- matic score card which never registers more than bogey. According to rhetorical rules we should now taper off with a suitable close and let the reader down softly, but the lights went out and we had to stop right here.

Stephenson, “Steve Himself,” was born near Webster, Iowa, about the time Bryan first ran for President. He served with the United States Army on the Mexican border and in the World War, and was discharged by reason of injuries incurred in line of duty. Prior to his military service Steve studied at the Pennsylvania School of Industrial Art, in Philadelphia, but on discharge matriculated at National University. His first year was characterized by the sincerity with which he threw himself into his school work and class activities. He represented the Alvey Debating Society in the inter-collegi- ate debate with Bridgewater College in 1924. When school reconvened in October, 1924, Steve organized the Class of 1926 and was elected Presi- dent. He was elected Critic of the Miller Debating Society and entered actively upon the duties of Business Manager of the Law Review. Steve enjoys the distinction of being the other man who voted for John W. Davis, on November 4th, 1924. ALBERT VAN VIAULT PAWTUCKET, RHODE ISLAND JUNIOR VICE-PRESIDENT SIGMA DELTA KAPPA There is a stir in the classroom, silence, whispers, then a deafening outburst of applause occasionally broken by whistling and cries of “speech!” Eyes are strained and di- rected toward the platform, every ear is waiting to grasp the words of the speaker, various members of the class register interest, amusement, or con- tempt. But what’s happening? — Van Viault is about to address the class; he of the silver tongue, the fiery de- livery, the unbounded enthusiasm, the would-be Demosthenes of the legal profession . . . that Democratic Damnyankee from Rhode Island. Van came to National in 1923 and was disappointed when he failed to get the floor in the War College. However, Pearlstein was absent one evening, and, somehow, someone let Viault get started. He hasn’t stop- ped yet. He is Vice President of his class, Junior Editor of the 1925 Docket, and represented the Alvey Society in the first inter-society de- bate in 1924. He is a hopeless opti- mist, a Democrat, and an incorrigible sheik, in spite of which we predict him a brilliant future. Page 134 THE DOCKET 1925 ESTHER LILLIAN MARTIN WASHINGTON, D. C. JUNIOR SECRETARY This demure little creature with the deadly stare came to Washington from the Smoky City, where she was born on March 15, 1898. She com- pleted grammar and high school courses at St. Cecilia’s Academy in Washington and later spent a year at George Washington University, and a year and a half at the Pace School. Her career at National University has been marked by the great num- ber of cases of heart dilatation and regurgitation which have developed among the masculine portion of the student body since her arrival. Dan Cupid shoots his arrows from the depths of her eyes with unerring pre- cision, and strews her paths with the tortured souls of her unforunate vic- tims. She was elected Secretary of the Junior Class in 1925 without opposi- tion, and was subsequently elected Secretary of the Miller Debating So- ciety for two terms. She is an ac- tive member of the Cy Pres Club and an ardent admirer of Justice Siddons, before whom it is expected she will soon make good use of the instruction he has given her, thereby displaying her remarkable intuitive talent for extracting logic out of uninteresting textbooks. BERTHA ELIZABETH RICHARDSON WASHINGTON, D. C. JUNIOR HISTORIAN Bertha Elizabeth Richardson was born in Washington, D. C., some time after the Civil War and has now reached the mysterious age of “Try and Find Out.” She graduated from Business High School in 1917. Later she completed a preparatory course at Emerson Institute and entered George Washington University, from which she “quituated” in 1923. Her stay at National has consisted of an unbroken succession of con- quests in every field of activity. She served as Secretary of the Freshman Class in 1924, and was elected Class Historian in 1925. She has taken a prominent pail in all the womens’ activities, and scored a triumph as a delegate from the National Demo- cratic Club of Washington to the New York convention last July. She is tall, slender, and graceful, with a bewitching twinkle in her eyes, a tantalizing dimple on either cheek, and an irresistible personality, which, coupled with her inherent ability and her indomitable courage, will some day make her the terror of judges, juries, and other adversaries, including a certain well known alum- nus of National, who, for some unex- plainable reason, is often seen in the corridors toward the close of classes. jp HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1926. LL hands on deck! Anchors aweigh! Full steam ahead!” Such was the spirit that prevailed when this serious-minded class em- barked upon a three years’ cruise through the turbulent waters of National University Law School. The “Skipper” assembled his crew of legal lights on the quarter deck while the future hope of the profession were herded and gathered amidship that they might hear and absorb the unerring wisdom of those who were to guide them on their perilous journey. The neophytes were scattered throughout the throng, some open mouthed and awe stricken, some wearing a cynical expression, some subconsciously smiling, but the great majority lost in mental specu- lation, dreaming, hoping, and wondering what the outcome of it all would be. The ship’s bell struck five times. The last speaker of the crew wound up his remarks. There was an overwhelming outburst of applause, a scurry toward the hatches, a general dispersing of embryonic attorneys, and the good ship was under way. Before the end of the first month the class had been well organized and had found its sea legs. Mr. Edward J. McQuade was chosen Presi- dent; Miss Loyola M. Coyne, Vice-President; Miss Bertha E. Richardson, Secretary; J. Hamilton Brewer, Jr., Treasurer; and Elton J. Layton, who later resigned and was succeeded by Harold R. Stephenson, Sergeant-at- Arms. A wide-awake social committee with Marquis T. Albertson as Chairman, materially contributed to the success of every school function. The entire Freshman Class put its shoulder to the wheel and assisted its committee to put things over with a “bang.” Enthusiasm warmed up and reached the boiling point, but, unfortunately, steamed off when plans for a purely Freshman entertainment and dance had to be dropped for lack of support. The first examinations came around as scheduled and left practically the entire class in an apprehensive frame of mind. But when the worst had happened and the general scare had subsided, everyone pitched in again for the second term with renewed energy and determination. Toward the end of the year an agitation, largely instigated and kept alive by the efforts of Miss Coyne, crystallized into a movement to provide each member of the class with a pin which should serve as a bond of friendship and be reminiscent of the many pleasant associations enjoyed during the year. A pattern was designed, orders were taken, and the pins obtained. Among the outstanding events of the year the War College Smoker and the formation of the Select Few Negotiable Instrument Club, aroused the most interest and created the greatest excitement. The Smoker was held in the spring at the Ebbitt Hotel and was characterized by the pro- found impression made upon the boys by the marvelous oration of Pro- fessor Godfrey L. Munter, the aesthetic exhibition by S. E. Collegeman, and Larry Connor’s sleeping act. The Negotiable Instrument Club will live in the minds of all as a short cut to a good grade with a minimum con- summation of “midnight oil.” Page 136 THE DOCKET 192 3 The activities of the three legal fraternities and of the Kappa Beta Pi sorority kept a number of our distinguished classmates in the lime- light throughout the year. However, the attention claimed by these organizations was challenged by the unprecedented activities of the Na- tional University Masonic Club, the Roger O’Donnell Law Club, the Wood- row Wilson Club, the Theodore Roosevelt Club, Mr. McCullar’s McAdoo Club, and Mr. Neviaser’s Calvin Coolidge Club. The ladies of the class were kept equally busy by the work of the Cy Pres Club and the Inez Milholland Chapter of the National Woman’s Party, while ambitious stu- dents of both sexes found an outlet for their surplus energy and verbosity in the Alvey and Miller Debating Societies. October, 1924, saw the same faces assembled once more on the decks of National. Again the “Skipper” and his crew plotted and outlined their courses; again came the encouraging response of every student to the faculty’s request for support and cooperation; and again the good ship was on its way for the 1926 cruise. The class was glad to welcome back the former Miss Edwina Austin, who, despite the repeated warnings of Professor Coombe, saw fit to leave a life of sacred singleness and change her status from that of a fascinating debutante to that of a charming matron. The recent scandals of the “little green house on K Street” were re- vived in the memories of the now sophisticated juniors by their introduc- tion to the troublesome “Little Green Book” — equally mysterious, equally unfathomable. Class elections were held after the culmination of a memorable cam- paign by the uncompromising sup- porters of the rival candidates. Har- old R. Stephenson was elected Presi- dent; Albert Viault, Vice President; Esther L. Martin , Secretary; John B. Roberts, Treasurer; Bertha E. Rich- ardson, Historian ; and F. P. O’Reilly, Sergeant-at-Arms. The National elections then divided the school into hostile camps, which even to this day have hardly become reconciled. The War College was the theatre of the most heated political discussions in the country, and the result of the elections, as predicted by each student, were both settled and unsettled a hundred and one times a night. The Calvin Coolidge Club and the John W. Davis Club were both on the offensive, and the supporters of each were equally vituperous in their denunciation of their opponents. The election came off ; the fever to which it had given rise disappeared ; and the school was itself again. The Sigma Delta Kappa and Phi Beta Gamma fraternities gave their annual dances early in the year and received the hearty cooperation of every “dancing fool” in the student body. The Senior dance, held on December 6th, was equally successful and equally supported. The Fall Smoker of the Freshman- Junior Class went over with a bang in every way but financially. Some of the boys are still wearing smoked glasses and the Chairmen of the Social Committees of both classes have only recently “returned to normalcy.” 192 5 Page 137 THE DOCKET The Class heaved great sighs of relief as they received their grades in Evidence, but their elation at their own ability and success gave away to grief at the realization that they were to be deprived for the remainder of their course of the invaluable teaching and counsel of their cherished professor. The War College Smoker afforded an opportunity for the removal of cobwebs from the vision of all who attended. John H. Essler, Duke of Kaakyak and Dean of the War College, furnished his admirers with a regal entertainment and retired from the Chancellorship of that unor- ganized organization, carrying with him the undying devotion and the merited respect of his disciples. C. E. Branner, the prize wit of the class, was nominated and elected to succeed his distinguished predecessor. The Junior Prom held on February 7th, at the City Club, defies de- scription. The alert, resourceful, and invincible Van Viault, Chairman of the Social Committee, worked with Achillean determination to give the boys and girls a treat, and he DID ! ’Nuf Sed. Those who were there will never forget it and those who were not will ever regret it. The final social event of the year was the Ball given at the close of Lent. In splendor and unbounded amusement it rivaled the Junior Prom and will live with it, in the memories of those who attended, both as a materialized dream of youth, a vision realized, and an ideal achieved. It is better by noble boldness to run the risk of being subject to half of the evils which we anticipate than to remain in cowardly listlessness for fear of what may happen. — Herodotus.

FRESHMAN SECRETARY Our President graduated from the Canisteo, New York, High School in 1901, and the following record shows that “Clem” was very popular in his high school days. He was founder and editor of the high school month- ly; editor of the class magazine, and first in line with the ladies as well as a leader upon the track team. Four years later Mr. Robertson graduated from Syracuse University with the A. B. degree. For four con- secutive years he was a member of the ’varsity track team, being chosen Captain in his senior year. Besides athletic achievements, “Clem” found- ed and managed the college news- paper, handled the finances of the senior class, and was elected to Phi Delta Theta and Tau Theta Upsilon fraternities, both prominent on the campus. He attended law school in Philadel- phia during 1905-1906, and at pres- ent holds an important position in the Internal Revenue Bureau. He is a member of the New York State Law Club and Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. Miss Fogle is a native of Washing- ton. She graduated from the John- son-Powell Grammar and Business High Schools, receiving a diploma from the latter in 1923. While at Business High, Miss Fogle received the following rewards for meritorious service : Two athletic letters, Bronze award for literary ability, two scholarships, business efficiency medal, and an award for dramatic ability. With such a prece- dent, we predict a brilliant and suc- cessful future for her in the field of jurisprudence. At present Miss Fogle is employed by the Riggs National Bank. She is a member of the National University Social Committee; Treasurer of the local chanter, National Womans’ Party, and member of the Cy Pres Club. Page 144 THE DOCKET 1925 AUGUSTUS S. BONANNO KINGSTON, N. Y. FRESHMAN TREASURER OREN R. LEWIS SEYMOUR, INDIANA FRESHMAN HISTORIAN Mr. Bonanno is a native of the Empire State, having been reared in the little town of Kingston, where he attended elementary and high schools, and, upon graduation, pur- sued a course in Spencer’s Business College. For six and a half years Bon- anno served m the United States Army, being stationed in various parts of the country. At present he is Chief Clerk in the Office of the Chief of Chaplains, United States Army, and is a Captain in the U. S. Reserve Corps. He is an earnest student and some- what of a “joiner,” being a member of Sigma Nu Phi, the Reserve Offi- cers’ Association of the United States, Woodmen of the World, New York State Law Club, Alvey Debat- ing Society, and President of the T. A. F. C. Club. Mr. Lewis, a native of the Hoosier State, graduated from the Seymour High School in 1920, and three years later received his A. B. degree from Hanover College. While there he re- organized the college year book and newspaper, being business manager for both publications. Beside this he found time to become a three year letter man in basketball. He is at present employed in the Circulation Department of the Wash- ington Herald, is a member of Phi Delta Theta Fraternity, and is Freshman Editor on the staff of the 1925 Docket. Friend Lewis is a careful student and his quiet, pleasing manner has won the friendship of those with whom he has come in contact. He is too modest to voice his ability, but from observation we believe he could succeed in the literary field as well as in the law. t : C :; i t , C ; i i yfC ' i ' C t t 7 ' ? 7tx t t i t i N i - N- v ' 1925 THE 1 1N ' I TTW i l yi y yj yj - i si i ' ' i si i yi ' DOCKET -i 7t " t 7t 7fs7t 7l t i t Page 145 ELMER W. ERICKSON BROCKTON, MASSACHUSETTS FRESHMAN SERGEANT-AT-ARMS “Leaf” says he was born the day the Irish wore the green in 1889, so he is doubly entitled to be styled “The Lucky.” He is a native of Massachu- setts, Brockton, to be exact. He fond- ly refers to it as “Mass,” and, like all New Englanders, is a staunch booster of the old Bay State. He graduated from the Brockton High School in 1917. During the World War Mr. Erick- son served in the Tank Corps. There- after he took up residence in Chicago, but soon removed to Cleveland, Ohio, where he remained until coming to Washington to associate himself with the Solicitor’s Office, Department of Agriculture. vfe xm S-L ' :V m 91 HISTORY OF THE CLASS OF 1927 m W H N October 1, 1924, the largest first year class in the history of National assembled, about two hundred and fifty strong, to hear the Dean and others of the faculty explain what was ahead. When we heard all that was in store there were not a few mis- givings as to whether the human mind could absorb all the legal lore essen- tial to the use of a LL. B. after one’s name, and for a short time every- thing seemed a little complicated, due to the newness of our environment. However, it was not long until some of the members began to make a fuss around the halls. The main topic under discussion seemed to be, When will the class be organized? Consequently, after a few preliminary meetings, officers were elected, all was running smoothly, and soon thereafter one of the most enjoyable smokers ever given by a class in the University, was held at Harvey’s. A good proportion of the class turned out and it is needless to expound upon what took place within the smoke screen. Except for the frat dance held at the Raleigh, little was heard from our class during the first term. All thoughts were directed toward the coming exams, the first in our law school experience. They soon came and passed with the usual number of casualties, and the survivors turned out in great numbers for the Junior Prom which was given at the Uni- versity Club and which was successful indeed. A winter of hard study is over, those who mastered the March tests begin to feel like veterans, and with the approach of June examinations and vacation days, we look back with pleasure and satisfaction upon our freshman year, during which the foundations of many lasting friendship s have been laid. The groundwork of our training is firmly established and we feel well on the way toward that coveted degree and more anxious than ever to meet and surmount the legal obstacles awaiting us. t . | I - 1 t -I-!

Her College of Finance and Business Administration has come into being within very recent years, in recognition of the ever-growing demand for collegiate work preparatory to a life venture upon the sea of business and public life. The courses are particularly designed to instill within the minds of graduates those principles which will make for success after they pass without the portals of their Alma Mater. Over fifty students were registered and ten degrees were conferred last year, while our 1925 Graduating Class comprises about twenty-five and there are over seventy-five undergraduates beside, denoting a healthy growth and vindicating the judgment of our popular Dean, the Honorable Charles F. Carusi, whose photograph appears at the head of the law fac- ulty, earlier in this volume. National has always been distinguished for the high scholastic, pro- fessional and practical attainments of its faculty and our College of Finance and Business Administration is by no means an exception to this established precedent. We feel particularly fortunate in our associations with the learned and companionable Doctor Whitney, of whom much more might be said than space permits. His great interest in student activities and his readi- iness to render assistance in all scholastic endeavors make him an out- standing figure in our college life. Professor Chekrezi’s fiery, learned and always interesting lectures upon things historical are unsurpassable. Pro- fessor Schulz has endeared himself to his hearers by exceedingly interest- ing discussions of the intricate problems of Political Science. It is appar- ent to Professor Schulz’s class that an error was committed in the very early years of his life. His middle initial should, without doubt, be “C” instead of “J,” for in the language of the truly American, “his middle name is Courtesy.” Professor Godfrey Munter is distinguished in at least two ways — his youthful appearance and his popularity with the entire student body, as an instructor. Much might likewise be set down regarding other instructors who have contributed to our sum of knowledge, but that which has been given serves to indicate how pleasant our relationships have been. National has always been and still remains a ray of hope to those of limited means but unlimited ambitions, who seek the education which, for one reason or another, was denied them during earlier years when the more fortunate, if they are, were sending “collect” telegrams to “Dad.” The freedom from a certain class of restrictions which, while invisible, 1 9 2 5 THE DOCKE T Page 151 must be reckoned with in many institutions of learning, has drawn to Na- tional a mature type of student who has already had a more or less ex- tended educational or professional training. This has produced a stand- ard of attainment of which the greater universities might well be proud. As our days together draw to a close we quite naturally desire to hark back to pleasant and amusing incidents which have occurred during our short sojourn together. One of our number, after having delivered himself of a most interesting and instructive account of the Franco- Prussian War, insisted that he failed to see wherein any war could be considered an economic question. On the contrary, he stoutly maintains that they constitute, in his humble opinion at least, a decidedly uneco- nomical pastime. The Graduating Class of 1925 has set for itself the task of per- petuating the traditions handed down to it by the graduating classes of former years, the members of which have reflected great and lasting credit upon themselves and their Alma Mater.

He received the degrees of Bach- elor of Arts, Master of Arts, and Doctor of Philosophy from Har- vard University; Bachelor of Laws from Boston University, and Doctor of Civil Laws from the American University. He has taught at the University of Chicago, the Massachu- setts Institute of Technology, Nor- wich University, and the College of William and Mary. He is a member of the American Economic Associa- tion, the American Academy of Po- litical and Social Science, the Ameri- can Historical Association, the Chi Psi Omega and Theta Chi (honorary) fraternities, and the Massachusetts State Bar. He is the author of “Gov- ernment of the Colony of South Caro- lina,” “King Philip,” and “Coopera- tive Credit Societies (credit unions).” The Law School also has the good fortune of having Doctor Whitney on its faculty in the capacity of Profes- sor of Roman Law. He is at present serving as Econo- mist for the Department of Labor. ROFESSOR CHEKREZI was born in Albania. He grad- uated from Harvard Univer- sity with the degree of Bach- elor of Arts in 1916. In addition he did graduate work at Columbia and American Universities. He is a jour- nalist and an author, and is known the length and breadth of his home country for his admirable writings along historical and governmental lines. One of his leading works is the “History of Albania.” He has the honor of being the first Albanian Commissioner to Washington. 1 9 2 5 THE D O C K E T Page 153 WILLIAM BOYD CRAIG, A. B.

AITON Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science ELISEO Q. CORNEJO Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science ERE it not uncharitable, we would actually envy Miss Aiton her work as principal of the Americanization School of the Public Schools of this city. She welcomes the bewildered prospective citizens from distant shores and guides them safely through the maze of new customs, language, ideals, and the meaning of American citizenship. She is privi- leged to see the gratifying results of her efforts, as the planting of a seed that repays with its fragrant flower. Miss Aiton is sociable to the nth degree, having membership in the fol- lowing clubs: The City Club, Prin- cipals’ Union, Federated Women’s Clubs, National Educational Associa- tion, Administrative Principals’ As- sociation, and the Americanization School Association. REATER than love of women is this active citizen’s love of his own country, the islands of the Pacific Far East which Magellan had to go half around the world to find. We should naturally assume in spite of the fact that we only see him hastening on some of the secretarial and treasurial jobs of the Faba Club and Philippine Colum- bians, that he loved his native land. But why should he scorn women, why particularly when he admits that he considers them the inspiration of his life? Just this, in a few words: Modern women have bobbed their hair contrary to his taste. Tennis they may play, dances they may do, but the bobbed hair, beunos noches! 1925 THE DOCKET Page 157 GREGORIO LEGASPI FAJARDO Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science H HIS gentleman of the mili- tary complex was born in Malolas, Bulacan Province, in the Philippines. From the public schools he proceeded to Manila and the Normal School, and in the course of time to National by way of Western Military Academy, the University of Illinois, and George Washington University. We refer to the military charasteristic, not be- cause he is belligerent, but because he devotes so much attention to his cadet training, his commissions as Lieutenant in the Guard and as Lieutenant in the Engineer Reserve Corps, and to his membership in the American Society of Military Engi- neers. We should not call him hos- tile ; indeed, he is fraternally inclined, being a member of Delta Phi Omega and Kappa Sigma Phi fraternities. The thing that mystifies us is, how, in addition to working for the Gov- ernment, organizing the Filipino Stu- dents’ Club, devoting time to the ad- miration of American life, ideals and beauties, and maintaining his mili- tary contacts and his activity in the Faba Club, he also manages to con- tinue interest in his favorite hobbies : golf, tennis, horseback riding, and dancing, and still proceed in his de- termined way toward the coveted de- gree.

GAUDETTE Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Science HEN handed the mimeo- graphed sheet entitled “Im- portant Questionnaire,” this flaming youth from the May- flower State dashed off replies advis- ing the inquisitive that he is a mem- ber of the Phi Beta Gamma, Knights of Columbus, Washington Hunt Club, an officer of the Faba Club, and served with the Reserve Officers’ Training Corps for nine months. “Frenchie’s” hobby is riding along the bridle paths of the parks. It appears that our fearless rider is not only a builder of dreams and fancies, but is a realtor and builder by occupation. He is sin- gle, but rumor whispers this state of freedom is rapidly drawing to a close. May and June will be busy months, for friend Leo will receive the degree of Bachelor of Laws from Georgetown University as well as that of Bach- elor of Science from National.

Of course, when she makes a hobby of teaching people how to spell her name correctly, we cannot ob- ject, — it is hard to spell, — but it is suggested that she might have chosen someone called Smith. A degree here or there makes little difference to her, for, with a Bachelor of Laws in her pocket and a Bachelor of Science im- mediately in sight, she looks forward to capturing the Doctor of Philosophy “trophy.” What a legal family, hus- band and wife both students of law, though in this case we must say in the genial and gracious words of Vir- gil, “Dux femina facti.” day.

Mrs. McClintock wouldn’t take us into confidence and tell us her life history, hobbies, or ambitions, but one need only make her personal acquaintance to find out what an admirable person she is. Be assured it will be well worth while. i , k Si Si s IVl VIV X i lN i y " tV P 1 9 2 5 THE DOCKET Page 159 JOSEPH F.

He is on the job always, studies far into the night, but always comes up with a smile in the morning. He mani- fests on all occasions the sterling qualitie s of a gentleman. CLIVE W. PALMER Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science H ERE is a masquerader, pre- tending to be that rara avis, a native son, and really being an immigrant from Smiths- burg, Maryland, where his appetite for academic degrees was incapable of satiation. He has done well since he crossed the District Line, having captured three degrees already, Bach- elor of Laws, Master of Laws, and Master of Patent Law, all in 1923, but the old proverb says one swallow does not make a summer, so Clive goes righteously onward toward further parchment engrossings and “privi- leges and immunities pertaining thereto.” He does all of this between spells of swimming in summer and skating in winter. He is married, you know, or perhaps you didn’t know, and we apologize for hurting the as- piring feminine classmates’ feelings, but at least you should have known, for no bachelor could be so sleek and well-fed. We are especially glad that after securing his basket full of law degrees and being admitted to the Maryland Bar, he came back for his Bachelor of Commercial Science de- gree, because it gives us an oppor- tunity to further test his capacity for work and to compliment his suc- cess in the role of Associate Editor of “The Docket.” I Page 160 THE DOCKET 1925 LILLIAN J.

As a matter of fact she said she had no past history and flippantly turned away with the words of Kipling: “There ain’t no chorus here to give, And there ain’t no band to play.” The above reminds us that “Little One’s” hobby is dancing and having a good time. When asked if she studied ’till the wee hours, she re- marked that she never arrived home until those hours. She is much en- grossed in diet lists and menus guar- anteed to furnish the required 3,500 calories daily and ponders over them with a wistful look, hoping by con- stant association and familiarity with carbohydrates, proteins and fats that she may add a pound or two to the already acquired eigthy-siix. She is an Associate Editor of “The Docket.” EDWARD F.

He is a member of the Sigma Kappa Phi fraternity, and the Knights of Co- lumbus. He is fond of golf, tennis, hunting, dancing and football. The fellows all vote him a “prince of good fellows,” and the fair sex also vote with them in this.

Com- muting from Baltimore daily, attending the early morning classes, performing arduous duties as Assist- ant Chief Clerk of the Pennsylvania Railroad, and returning to evening classes as well, is only part of “Mar- ty’s” twenty-four-hour day. He does not even rest on Sundays, as he teaches Sunday School, composes poetry, and is the best father in the world to two kiddies. Though every minute of his time is taken, he is always ready with a witty and pleas- ant word to everyone. He graduated from the Baltimore City College, Bry- ant and Stratton Business College, and the McKee Secretarial School, all of Baltimore. Some day we expect to be invited for a trip in his private Pennsylvania car. |N the first place the gentle- man is camouflaging. He doesn’t come from Jersey at all — he is a Georgian, born and bred. It was Georgia that gave him his good looks. It was Georgia that saw him partly through tech- nical school. Perhaps it was Georgia and her quail that gave him a liking for hunting. He is Vice-President of the Senior Class of the College of Finance, and President of the Faba Club. Like any true representative of a lofty and high-brow town like Athens (Athens, Georgia), he is interested in intellec- tual things. He is a student of for- eign affairs, which he studied partial- ly when on the high seas and while sojourning at European ports with the U. S. Navy during the World War. He plans further a career in the Con- sular or Diplomatic Service. “0. K.” has studied at the School of Foreign Service, and holds a diploma from the University of Madrid. (This one is in Spain, not in Georgia.) He has lived and studied in Europe and in South America — now we understand the distinguished, nonchalant air. He survived initiation into Delta Sigma Pi — and may be persuaded to grow anew that moustache which was the pride of the College. Page 162 THE DOCKET 1925 MARY E. STODDER Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science WILLIAM JASPER STOREY Class Treasurer Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Commercial Science E have above a voteless citi- zen, who has been a resident of Washington, D. C., since the age of six weeks. Mrs. Stodder tells us she had seven broth- ers, but fails to add whether such a circumstance was a source of joy or otherwise, — brothers are such nui- sances. However, this gave her the nickname of “Sis,” and made her somewhat of a tom-boy, it is feared, as she not only understands (which is a feminine feat in itself) but plays baseball. “Sis” is a true sport, as she enjoys canoeing and camping and drives her own car. Please notice that it is left to the reader’s imagi- nation as to the indulgence in fast driving. Mrs. Stodder is a popular and successful teacher in the Public Schools of the District of Columbia. NTIL we wandered into the portals of the Miller Debat- ing Society and heard “Judge” Storey preparing himself for the practical following of the legal profession, we never knew what it meant. Now we know, for we have heard magnieloquent eloquence out of the mouth of Magnolia. Pos- sibly he acquired the readily flowing- language from the pursuit of his fa- vorite sport of golf. He has taken the degree of Bachelor of Laws from National; he has been initiated into the secrets of the Shriners and Choate Chapter of Sigma Nu Phi legal fraternity, but there is one di- ploma he has not taken. He still re- tains the Bachelordom with which he was born and in which the Law De- partment confirmed him in 1924. Here you have a lawyer, planning to practice his profession and equipped therefor, who aspires also to a de- gree in Commercial Science. He has been Senior Class Treasurer during the year. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page IRWIN CHENOWETH COX Candidate for the degree of Bachelor of Science R. COX was born in 1894, at Fowler, Indiana, where he spent the early years of his life. He is a business man of no mean experience, having been in the retail hardware, and retail drug business for himself a number of years in Kansas. Later he was a trav- eling salesman in the Southwest. He saw military service in the World War, having served overseas for more than a year. At present he is in the teaching profession. Before coming to National to put the finishing touches upon his edu- cation, Mr. Cox studied at Washing- ton University, St. Louis, Missouri, for a year ; at Georgetown University, School of Foreign Service, for three years ; at George Washington Univer- sity for one semester, and at the Washington School of Spanish for two terms. When not joy-riding with his wife, which is his delight, not teaching, and not attending lectures at National, he finds time hanging heavily (?) upon his hands. Serious- ly, we wonder whether Mr. Cox, like Thomas Edison, doesn’t sleep four hours for himself and one hour to please his wife; otherwise, how could he crowd in all his multifarious duties? Page 164 THE DOCKET 19 2 5 The Nu Faba Club | ITH the assistance and encouragement of those splendid-spirited gentlemen, Doctor Whitney and Professor Chekrezi, the students H of the College of Finance and Business Administration came to- gether early in the present school year for the purpose of organ- izing a college club. After considerable thought and labor on the part of the students of the college a club bearing the name “Nu Faba” was or- ganized and launched with a fine start. Under the able leadership of President Smith the club has grown in size until it now has approximately fifty members, and its purpose of promoting good fellowship and high scholastic standards has been real- ized to a remarkable degree. Assisting President Smith in the handling of the affairs of the club are Vice-President Donesa, Secretary-Treasurer Cornejo, Historian Gaudette, and Sergeant-at-Arms Blue. The club was organized in the hope that it would form a nucleus from which a real, virile, one-hundred-per-cent student organization might develop. That which is to be lasting requires time in the building, and it is with this in mind that the sponsors deem the club’s present accom- plishments merely a prelude to that which is yet to come, it being hoped that the organization thus created may prove to be of perpetual existence, and a source of beneficial contact, both social and educational, between the College and the alumni in the years to come. The following will also receive degrees from the College of Finance and Business Administration : Raymond A. Bartlett Bachelor of Commercial Science Springfield, Massachusetts James L.

The previous year Miss Virginia Teeters, a member of the school at that time, had stimulated the interest of the women students in the work of the National Woman’s Party, but the Chapter itself was not established until 1924. National University was the second law school to establish a chapter and Miss Martha Goebel was the first Chairman. Under Miss Goebel’s leadership the Chapter had cooperated actively with Headquarters in regard to research work and other matters of vital importance to women, especially with respect to legal problems. It is interesting to note here that Bernice Matthews, who is in charge of the legal work of the National Woman’s Party, is a graduate of National. In August, 1924, a pageant was held as a memorial to Inez Milholland and four members of this Chapter, Miss Goebel, Miss Flynn. Mrs. Cochrane and Miss Scheiber, attended. Prior to the pageant, the first meeting of the National Student Council was held and reports were given of the activities of the Inez Milholland Memorial Chapters from the various schools throughout the Country. When Inez Milholland started her work for emancipation of women at Vassar she was forced to hold meetings out- side of the school close, but today her spirit is forcefully felt in every school where such work is being carried on. In January, 1925, the annual election of officers took place. Miss Loyola Mary Coyne was elected Chairman; Miss Evelyn Jarvis, First Vice-Chairman; Miss Bertha Richardson, Second Vice-Chairman; Miss Constance Fogel, Treasurer; Miss Russel M. Richards, Secretary; Miss Nita Hinman. Sergeant-at-Arms. The Chairman of this Chapter is also the Second Vice-Chairman of the National Student Council of Inez Mil- holland Memorial Chapters. During the coming year it is planned to extend the work of the Chapter, and to do everything within the Chapter’s power to aid the passage of the Equal Rights Amendment. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 189 Cy Pres Club HE Cy Pres Club was organized October 2, 1920, by Miss J. Eliza- beth Newton, then a student at National University Law School. Its object is to promote the mutual, social and educational rela- tions of the lady students in the law school. During the school year, 1924-25, the Club was reorganized on the same fundamental principles which has always characterized it, adopting a new constitution to meet the ever-changing conditions among the stu- dents. The Club has sponsored many social activities during the year, a tea which was given at the reception hall of the League of American Pen Women being the first event. The annual banquet, February 23, 1925, at the City Club, proved an exceedingly enjoyable evening. A number of the professors were present, including Mr. Conrad H. Syme, who acted as toastmaster, and Mr. and Mrs. Godfrey Munter. Among the guests were noted many familiar faces, long since members of the alumni. The second annual candy sale held at the University, was a signal suc- cess due to the hearty cooperation extended by the men of the school. The farewell social event of the season was a party held in the Spring which was well attended by the girls.

For the first time in the University’s history, stu- dents from the far away Philippines have formed the Philippine Columbians of National University. The purposes are: To function more efficiently as a living part of the Alma Mater; to utilize more fully the educating influences of actual and active participation in the activities of the student body and to know more fully, and, in turn, to be known more fully by, the American youth. Membership is open to students from both the Law School and the School of Business Administration. National has long been a Mecca for young Filipinos desiring a legal education, and a goodly number of her graduates are today prominent attorneys and useful citizens in that far off island country of which so little is really known here, but which, in reality, abounds in natural re- sources and opportunities, and which boasts a population of over ten million people. Credit is due in great measure to Eliseo Cornejo of the School of Business Administration for the formation of the Society. OFFICERS Prospero C. Sanidad, President, Law ’25. SILVERIO P.

Miller Debating Society HIS Society was organized a number of years ago for the benefit of the Junior and Senior Classes and is open to all their members. Nothing is more necessary to those students of the law who expect, some day, to practice before the bar, than an easy, free and confident manner of presentation ; and it was under the aus- pices of this Society that most of us tackled our first “public appearance.” Timid? Some of us — yes; while others were able to take the platform boldly and the audience by storm. After a time even the more timid were able to find their voices and stand without feeling that their knees would give ’way or that their Adam’s apples were about to fill their throats. So it goes without saying that the Saturday evening meetings under the careful guidance of our able Professor Myers, were both popular and beneficial. A number of scheduled debates took place between members of the Society, while other evenings were set aside for open discussion. There were also inter-society debates upon subjects of public interest, in which the Miller Society did more than hold its own. OFFICERS First Term Mr. D. J. Fuqua President Miss L. M.

Alvey, once Chief Justice of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals and one of the University’s founders. It was formed a number of years ago for the benefit of freshmen and is re-organized each year by members of the incoming class in forethought of the great bene- fits to be attained by practice speaking on the feet before audiences. During the year now drawing to a close the Society has been very popular with the student body and has yielded great profit through the kindly and helpful guidance of Professor Myers. A number of interesting and helpful debates have been held, among which may be mentioned : Resolved that the President of the United States be elected for a term of six years and that he shall be eligible for but one term, and Resolved that the present sugar tariff is for the best inter- ests of the United States. Late in the Fall term the Society accepted a challenge from the Miller Society to debate upon : The recognition of the present Russian govern- ment. Messrs. Watson, Bonanno and Seely represented the Alvey So- ciety with forceful arguments, but had to be content with second honors. OFFICERS Mr. E. H. Watson President Mr. V. P. Russo Vice-President Miss E.

Say, You LISTEN! u ft 3 0 say that the War College, now in the fourth hectic year of Hi Hi ex istence, is an institution would be a mild statement ; even Plrlllj the word unique does it but slight justice. Its very existence is fi«T win one m ore proof of the well-known scientific fact that “man is a gregarious animal.” The War College had its inception in the idea that those who commanded little attention in the class rooms ought to be heard somewhere wLere their multitudious talents might receive proper recognition from the proletariat. Thus, so that none might be deprived of his constitutional right to speak up, even in the face of the bitterest opposition and the most unmistakable ex- pressions of disgust on the part of the afflicted audience, the War College was created. It soon became the recog- nized theatre for all the unintelligent and unintelligible discussions conceivable, and its honors were customarily awarded to those members who could talk more and say less simutaneously than any one else in the orginizatzion. As time went on, several chronic ora- tors came to be looked upon as the ipso facto leaders of the new body, but it was not until the third year of its chaotic and hectic existence that the organization came into such general fame that it pro- ceeded to elect unto itself a Chancellor. From then on the body began to assume form and its officers to presume wisdom and authority. Daily meetings were held, the whole gamut of human knowledge was thrashed out in heated debate and passionate argument, scandal was aired, reputa- tions were built and destroyed, orators rose and fell, slackers lounged around, Kentuckians chewed tobacco, New Yorkers chewed the fat, and the Filipinos “listened in” on the miscellaneous broadcasting. At the grand annual conclave of 1924, John H. Essler, Duke of Kaakyak, and Gypsy King of the Class of 1926, was elected Grand and Exalted Chancellor. The second annual conclave was held this year at Harvey’s Tavern on lower Pennsylvania Avenue, where the riotous mem- bership celebrated in due and ancient form. C. E. Branner, the prize wit of the Junior Class, was unanimously selected by a committee of one, Page 198 THE DOCKET 192 5 consisting of the Chancellor, to succeed to the leadership for the year 1926. Those present frolicked in delightful abandon, as all members of this torreador association are wont to do, and from the subdued whispers — of the three or four who were capable of whispering — one might judge that the assembled stilletto pushers, garlic snappers, and embryonic bar- risters enjoyed themselves to the utmost of human ability. When the smoke cleared and the dust and ashes settled in the vicinity of the riot, and each of the murderers went his own way, a number of the more docile (?) proletarians hied themselves to the “Cafe des En- fants,” where hos cakes and black coffee were mixed with more or less impropriety with the distilled spirits of corn husk, juniper berries, rubber boots and Ford motors. The dawn of day found many a weary traveller looking for himself in dark and gloomy alleys and byways of this beau- tiful city. But once more the sun has shone with sufficient brightness to pene- trate the opaque craniums of the War Collegians so that normalcy reigns again in that august body, the newly initiated members are now seasoned veterans and more boisterous than their super-ignorant prede- cessors, the ether waves emanating from the celebrated meeting halls carry the same incomprehensible amount of nothingness to the world at large, hides are nailed to the fence as usual, and the organization, fired and inspired with new blood and energy, bids fair to contribute some remarkable dat a for the future history and enlightenment of mankind.

Your Alma Mater has stood, and H stands, in a relation to you somewhat different from that of the ordinary college or university. You did not come to it unac- quainted with the world, its realities and problems ; nor were you un- tried by the test of life, which alone, authoritatively, can classify one in respect of character and ability. You, almost without exception, had already established yourselves as capable of earning an honorable liveli- hood for yourselves; and, in the case of many, for your families. The fact that at a maturer age, with this background of achievement, you were willing to make the sacrifices necessary to carry you through three years more of study and schooling, entitles you to a place in the category of those for whom success may confidently be predicted. Many of you had not, at the time of entrance, the advantage of pre- vious college training, with its presumption, sometimes violent, of im- proved moral character and mental training; but as said above, in lieu of such presumption, you offered evidence; for character and ability are not so easily tested in the classroom or on the campus as in the actual struggle for existence. It is competition in the gainful occupations which selects the worthy and eliminates the unfit. After all, however, we are all more interested in what you shall take out, than in what you brought into the Halls of Old National. An appreciation of the success of the Faculty in its effort to give you a broad and practical acquaintances with the fundamental principles of the law, I know you take with you. Your good will and that of the graduates that have preceded you is abundantly proven by the remarkable growth of your school. Something else you take with you of a value almost as great as your training in the law. Where else except in Washington, and per- haps Where else in Washington except at National, could you have spent three years in intimate association with so many various types of men, coming from every section, of every shade of society, religion and political opinion, of such varied and interesting occupations and antece- dent experience? This has constituted a liberal education in itself, the importance of which it would not be easy to over-emphasize. It is, then, with the evidence of success in the past, and every pre- sumption for success in the future, that you go forth, adding to the prior reputation of your Alma Mater. On behalf of National, its Faculty, and Student Body, whom you leave behind, I bid you Godspeed and Goodbye. CASH VALUE OF A COLLEGE EDUCATION [ T is $72,000, according to Dean Lord of the Boston University College of Busi- ness Administration; and the cash value of a high school education is $33,000. The Boston institution has been carrying out a careful study of the earning capacity of college graudates, and the report just issued contains a number of interesting facts. According to a New York Herald Tribune summary, the aver- age maximum income of the untrained man is $1,200 a year; that of a high school graduate $2,000, and that of a college graduate $6,000. The total earnings of the three types up to the age of sixty are set at $45,000, $78,000, and $150,- 000. It is also estimated that while the untrained man at the age of fifty begins to drop toward de- pendence. the college man reaches his maximum earning capacity at sixty. As the report is quoted further: The untrained man goes to work as a boy of fourteen and reaches his maximum income at the age of thirty. This maximum is, on the average, less than $1,200 a year. In view of the fact that this income is earned through manual labor de- pendent on physical strength, it begins to fall off at the age of fifty or even earlier, and soon reaches a level below self-support. The figures show that more than sixty of every 100 untrained workers are dependent on others for support at the age of sixty. Between fourteen and eighteen, the four years which might have been spent in high school, the un- trained young man usually earns not more than $2,000 . — The Literary Digest. Page 206 THE DOCKET 192 5 Commandments For Lawyers ARRANGED BY ALVA 0. HEARNE H HERE is, perhaps, no profession, after that of the sacred min istry, in which a high-toned morality is more imperatively neces- sary than that of the law. There is certainly, without exception, no profession in which so many temptations beset the path to swerve from the line of strict integrity; in which so many delicate and difficu.t questions of duty are continually arising. There are pitfalls and mantraps at every step, and the mere youth, at the very outset of his career, needs often the prudence and self-denial, as well as the moral courage, which commonly belong to riper years. High moral principle is his only safe guide; the only torch to light his way amidst darkness and obstruction.” — Essay on Professional Ethics, by Hon. George Shars- wood. In 1895 the Honorable Samuel H. Wandell, of the New York Bar, author of “The Law of Inns, Hotels and Boarding Houses,” “The Law Relating to Disposition of Decedents’ Real Estate,” “The Law of the Theatre,” etc., penned, at odd moments, a little book entitled “You Should Not,” and which he intended as “a code of ‘danger signals’ for the mem- bers of the legal profession, who, in the busy race for success at the Bar, have too little time for the study of ethics.” Extracts from this work of that distinguished lawyer are given below with the hope that their repeated reading will be found both interesting and profitable. I. YOURSELF IN GENERAL “You should not be careless or negligent about your personal appear- ance. “You should not be afraid to change your location or your professional relations if thereby it seems reasonably certain that you will be substan- tially 1 enefitted. “You should not imagine that you can succeed at the bar unless you work hard in the profession. “You should not get the mistaken idea that it pays a lawyer to become noted as sharp and tricky. “You should not neglect your business engagements. “You should not practice law with the idea that your profession is only designed as a means of money getting; you should not devote your whole life to the abject service of Mammon. “You should not be conceited and imagine that the whole world is prostrate at your feet in admiration of your transcendent abilities. “You should not fail to acquire the habit of steady application. “You should not fail to be energetic. Energy is like the locomotive; without its aid the train can not move. “ You should not be imprudent, but you should combine caution, dis- cretion and good judgment with energy. “You should not lack preserverance in your undertakings. Do not get discouraged and fail to continue to the end. “ You should not forget the oath taken by you upon admission to the Bar. 19 2 5 THE DOCKET Page 207 II. YOUR OFFICE “ You should not suffer your office to become disorderly, nor should you let the dust of ages accumulate on books, shelves, desks and chairs, or in unused corners. “You should not permit your office to become the headquarters of a loungers’ club, under the impression that you are thereby gaining in pop- larity. “You should not keep your ofhce blue with tobacco smoke. “You should not locate your office in some unfrequented street, or in some unknown or unsuitable building. Above all things, do not locate in a block which has a disreputable name. III. YOUR BUSINESS “You should not brag about you business or tell people what a smart person you are. “You should not tell all you know about your cases or be anxious to let the public know what a wonderful array of facts you have with which to sustain your client’s cause ; if you do, your adversary may ascertain your strong points and be prepared for them. “You should not conduct your law business without any method or system. “You should not waste the precious hours of business in lounging, idle gossip, newspaper and novel reading. “You should not be extravagant and run heavily in debt, or spend your money like a prince. “You should not engage in any outside business and try to speculate. “You should not connect or identify yourself in business with an un- lucky man. “You should not endorse checks, drafts or notes for the accommoda- tion of your friends or business acquaintances. “You should not pester your friends and acquaintances with continual applications for loans of money. “ You should not neglect to study human nature and to read character by physiognomy. “You should not neglect any opportunity for obtaining general in- formation. “You should not procrastinate in your business matters. IV. YOUR CLIENTS “You should not deal with your client as you would with an outside party. “You should not purchase anything from your clients which is in litigation, and concerning which you are acting as the attorney. “You should not endeavor to stir up quarrels or to provoke litigation; especially as between husbands and their wives, or between members of the same family. Page 208 THE DOCKET 1925 “You should not advise a client to commence an action where the chances of defeat are almost certain, so that you can get a fee out of the case. “You should not take up every case that is offered you. Learn to dis- criminate in the selection of cases. “You should not enter into collusion with a husband and a wife to secure a divorce, or be a party to a put-up job to obtain a bill of divorce for the mutual accommodation of both parties; neither should you have any- thing to do with a case of this character which is not perfectly straight- forward and honorable. “You should not collect money for your clients and retain it in your own hands, or mingle it with your private funds. “You should not betray a confidence that is reposed in you as a lawyer. V. YOUR FEES “You should not omit to exact a good retaining fee in advance before commencing an action or engaging in a defense. “You should not undervalue your professional services and get into the habit of charging low prices, thereby hoping to secure business. “You should not get into the habit of giving free advice, thinking that thereby you will secure the favor of those who consult you professionally. “You should not sue clients for the recovery of fees, unless the amount is large and you stand a good chance of obtaining your money. “You should not take up a long, tedious litigation without having some agreement beforehand with your client as to what your compensation is to be. “You should not ‘fleece’ your clients. You ought always to charge a good, fair fee for your services, but, at the same time, you should be rea- sonable, and not commit legalized larceny. VI. YOURSELF IN COURT “You should not pull your mustache, run your fingers through your hair, pick your nose or teeth, nor adjust your collar and necktie when ad- dressing the court or a jury. “You should not lose your temper in court. It puts you at a disad- vantage immediately. “You should not resort to blackguard and buffoonery in trying a case. “You should not go into court unless your case is ready for trial; you should master the technical legal propositions involved in it, and have a good theory to sustain your contention, which you can support by facts. “You shoidd not put too much faith in what your client tells you about his cause. He is an interested party, and will be apt to state facts as favorable to his side of the controversy as possible. “You should not attempt to deceive the court, or to mislead the judge. “You should not be too sure to winning your case. You may overlook some important point in the preparation of the case for trial. “You should not become a mere ‘case lawyer,’ always at sea unless you can find a reported decision to sustain your point. f ( Sli s i yj P l ( yi ytK t yt y i yj y 1 t f y t”| | t f 7i yT t j : f gt iv ' t i v i r5 ' i 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 209 “You should not cross-examine a witness at random, without yourself knowing why you ask your questions. “You should not fail to memorize all the facts which you expect to be able to prove by the witnesses, both upon the direct examination of your witnesses, and upon the cross-examination of your adversary’s witnesses. “You should not allow yourself to be disturbed or disconcerted by un- favorable evidence; it will lose half its power to work you an injury if you maintain a calm demeanor in court. “You should not neglect to restrain and repress the pert, forward and ‘smart’ witnesses who will always injure the cause they wish to aid by self-assurance and offensive zeal. “You should not put irrelevant questions to a witness; do not question without an object in view. “You should not object to your opponent’s questions without some tenable ground to fortify yourself, when called upon to give the reason for such objections. “You should not call a witness yourself whom you know will surely be called by your opponent. “You should not try to prove too much by an unfriendly witness. Bring him at once to the vital point on which his testimony is essential, and have done with him as soon as possible. “You should not lose your temper with a stupid witness. Do not get out of patience at his blunders and fly at him. “You should not yield to the temptation to read your adversary’s briefs, or examine his private memorandum, which may accidentally fall into your hands, or which you may, unknown to him, find an opporunity of scrutinizing. VII. YOUR ASSOCIATIONS “You should not become noted for being tricky and technical with the Bar. “You should not get into the habit of speaking disrespectfully of your brother lawyers. “You should not forget to make friends whose influence and business relations will be of assistance to you in securing a clientage. “You should not be hasty in forming partnership relations with your brethren of the Bar. J “You should not have many confidential and intimate friends. The friends thou hast, and their adoption tried, Grapple them to thy soul with hooks of steel ; But do not dull thy palm with entertainment Of each new-hatched, unfledged comrade.” VIII. YOUR MORALS “You should not be careless of your morals. Good personal habits are as essential as are good business habits to your success in life. “You should not cultivate bad habits. They are the only handicaDS in the great race for success. y nanaica P s Page 210 THE DOCKET 1925 “You should not stifle your conscience, nor sear it as with a hot iron. “You should not forget that ‘honesty is the best policy’ for a lawyer. The lawyer is the servant of the public. “You should not suborn witnesses nor falsify evidence; you ought to endeavor to elevate, instead of to degrade the morals of the community in which you live. “You should not use the legal profession as a shield and a screen to protect you in levying blackmail. “You should not send a dunning epistle which is written upon a postal card. It is an offense under the United States laws. “You should not send threatening letters through the mail; that is also an offense. “You should not write to a person from whom you are trying to collect a bill, stating that unless he settles you will institute criminal proceedings, get him arrested or expose some secret which is in your possession, and which he is anxious to keep from the public. “You should not ante-date the jurat of an affidavit which is sworn to before you as a notary, commissioner or other officer. “You should not under any circumstances forfeit the respect and con- fidence of a judge. “You should not pack a jury, nor endeavor to secure a verdict by cor- rupt, unfair and dishonorable means. IX. YOUR HEALTH “You should not fail to preserve your health. Early in life, remember Shakespeare’s advice to “Have mind upon your health.” “You should not forget that the sedentary habits of a professional man are not conducive to good digestion and perfect health. “You should not imagine that you are practicing economy by not al- lowing yourself any vacation, or relaxation from the cares of business, and by keeping yourself constantly at work without intermission the entire year; you will, in the end, pay dearly for such folly. “You should not forget that an earnest, diligent student is prone to undermine and ruin his health. “You should not think that because you cannot see the end of your strength, that it has no end. “You should not forget that good health is necessary in order to make you a successful lawyer. “You should not forget that the lawyer who possesses health can en- dure the fatigue of a long legal contest much better than his sickly and broken down competitor. “You should not be a spendthrift with your health. It is a lawyer’s capital, and should not be impaired; it should be jealously guarded. “You should not neglect physical exercise. All out-of-door sports and pastimes are beneficial to a hard working business or professional man. Good health is equal to at least fifty percent more brain power to a pro- fessional man. It should be preserved if you have it, and it should be obtained if you have it not. “Were he not in health, t He would embrace the means to come by it.” THE MOOT LAWYER’S SOLILQUY (Without apology to Hamlet.) To answer or demur? That is the puestion ; Whether ’tis better endless pleadings to pile up And thus postpone the evil day, When in the presence of this Honorable Court we stand To hear these harsh and bitter words fall from his lips: “Thy pleading’s bad in form and eke in substance, And, in sooth, proclaims thou knowest not The simplest rudiments of law as they relate To pleading.” Which cold words subject us To the deep derision and the ribald scorn Of that great rabble of embryo barristers Who clutter up the ancient halls of justice For purpose none but mockery of our skill, Or lack of it, but whom Against our fierce desires and better judgment, We must refer to in most dulcet tones And honeyed phrase as “Our esteemed and learned confreres,” the while Deep in our heart of hearts we hope they also choke When their turn comes ,as come it must, and will. Or, by taking both the bull and the dilemma by the horns, Present a motion to strike out Which will at once precipitate an argument Designed to show our utter ignorance of all Those finer points with which the veriest tyro Who stands before the august Court, Should be familiar; And thus, by rude experience alone Have battered into domes of hardest ivory Some little semblance of the legal lore Which all so deeply covet, but which few, indeed, If any, of this bunch of hams, e’er hope to gain. Thus diffidence makes cowards of us all, And Actions erstwhile in the Moot Court started With hopes of high success are relegated To that dread limbo of forgotten causes From whence no motion to revive will e’er Induce them to return.

Freshman (to frat brother) : “Some one wants you on the ’phone.” Frat Brother: “Well, if it’s a girl tell her I’ll be there and if it’s a man tell him I’ll take a quart.” — West Vir- ginia Moonshine. Sheik (arising from the table) : “Shall we dance this fox-trot?” Flapper : “That wasn’t the orches- tra starting up. One of the waiters dropped a tray of dishes.” Devil : “What in hell are you laughing at?” His Assistant: “Oh, I just had that flapper locked up in a room with a thousand hats and no mirror.” “Why are your fraternity brothers all so thin?” “Every time they hear the dinner gong they think it’s the patrol wag- on.” — Stanford Chaparral. “What have you in the shape of automobile tires?” “Funeral wreaths, life preservers, invalid cushions and doughnuts,” — Bucknell Belle Hop. eeeieiemseeieeg Page 216 THE DOCKET 19 2 5 Belle : “Do you college boys waste much time?” Hop : “Oh, no, most girls are rea- sonable .” — Bucknell Belle Hop.

They scintillated in the courts In actions high and low ; In contract, slander, crime and torts : John Doe and Richard Roe. These two galoots were in cahoots And kept the lawyers busy With most amazing attributes, That made the judges dizzy. Today they join for common weal, And confidence bestow ; Tomorrow from each other steal : Joe Doe and Richard Roe. Their traits of mind were inter- twined With tempers vitriolic, That fostered actions fair and kind, And deeds most diabolic. We view these versatile compeers As changing friend and foe ; The comrades of our student years; John Doe and Richard Doe. V. N. Lawless, N. U. L. S. Class of ’26. MY OLD FORD Of my old Ford they all make fun, They say it was ma de in nineteen-one. Maybe it was, but this I’ll bet She’s good for many a long mile yet. The windshield’s gone and the radiator leaks, The fan belt slips and the horsepower squeaks; She shakes the screws and nuts all loose, But I get forty miles on a gallon of juice. When I can’t get gas I burn kerosene, And I’ve driven home on paris green. There is a rattle in front and a grind in the rear, And a Chinese puzzle for a steering gear. Her coils are dead and her plugs won’t fire, And her piston rings are made of baling wire; But in spite of this she pulls me through — That’s about all any car can do. With high priced cars they give you tools, Some extra parts and a book of rules. A good wire stretcher and a pair of shears Is all I’ve carried for fifteen years. And if I live to see the day When she busts up, like the one-horse shay, And Henry Ford stays in the game I’ll buy another by the same dum name. 192 5 THE DOCKET Page 217 A Patronymic Fantasy LGIRE told Andrews that Bailey smiled at Bassett, and Bates saw Beavers, causing Benoit to turn Black, and Brannon told Brecht the Brewer. Bunten, the Burgess of Burke, told the Butler to Byrne, Lut not Byrne Camalier. Carey, at Chambers, decided to Clampitt on Clark, and Cleary had Cochran throw Cole at the Coons. Cooper collected the Coyne, and Davis heard that Demarest found a Dent on Detwiler when De Souza planted Di vine at de Dorer. Emmons was Fickle while Fields chased the Germon, and Giovannoni turned Gray instead of Green. Hord was a Hunter and Jamieson was a Joyner like Kelly. Beware of the Law if your satchels Leake and become Leiter. Shawler began to Sikken when Sipes said Solmon was wise. Spaulding threw the Speer and Stein, and took a Strole towards the “Southland.” Swinson and Syme played with Thomas, the son of Thompson. Travers, the Tyler, caught Waller in his Webb while West and Whitley whittled just as Whittington Wood if he whittled Wright.
