Douglas A. Seeley, Editor -in-Chief . Page 10 wmmm mm®, Hi mam ' ■ ? spii £pt i fii?S5 F in the sum of human knowledge the subject of History is an item of value, its worth lies not in a bare recital of the events of the Past, but rather as such a portrayal of the rising tide of achieve- ment that Ambition may be advised to what heights it may aspire. This being true, the present effort has not been confined alone to the circumstances of the origin and the growth of our Alma Mater, but based on those things already accomplished here has been ventured a glimpse into the Future. For the origin of National University the pages of Time must be turned back to the grim days of the Reconstruction, and perhaps in view of the estab- lishment of the principles for which the Great Conflict was waged, in view of the new problems then before the Nation, it was not an ill-omened moment for the establishment of a University whose principal effort was to be in the field of the Law. National University was first organized in 1869 under a charter issued by the District of Columbia. On this authority the school continued to operate until the year 1896 w hen by Special Act of the Congress of the United States the present charter was granted, by virtue of which the incorporators and their successors were empowered to establish and maintain an institution of learning of so great scope that the now existing departments stand in the relation of a mere nucleus of that which is possible of creation should full advantage ever be taken of the powers granted and available. From its beginning the official family of the University has been distin- guished by the prominence and the ability of its personnel. Five Presidents of the United States have served it as Chancellors ex-officio. Eminent jurists representing both Bench and Bar, in numbers too great here to be enumerated, have served in varying capacities, directing the general course of endeavor, as lecturers, as professors and instructors. Small wonder indeed, under such cir- cumstances that there have been attracted to the Portals of National University such an ever-increasing student body, that today the class rolls of our Alma Mater are scarce exceeded by any other institution engaged in similar under- taking. In the year 1923, in recognition of the growing needs of the University, adjoining property was acquired and converted to school purposes. Already, however, the facilities so added are taxed to the utmost. Nor is that circum- stance one at which to marvel. With a graduate body of over five thousand, a present student body of well nigh a thousand, the name and fame of National needs must spread in such ever-widening circles that Her Future must give us pause. What is there in that Future? What do the Facts of the Past and the Currents of the Present portend? Is it too much to venture that impelled by the ever-increasing number of those who knock at Her doors, that under the broad powers and privileges of Her Charter, that our Alma Mater may not in time become National University in the wide and discursive meaning of the words in Her name? We who were the Class of Nineteen Hundred and Twenty-seven find in that thought a Hope and a Vision inseparable from those grateful memories with which as Graduates we say our last Farewell.

The attendance at the National has been for three years one of your major interests in life. During that time probably a major- ity of all of those who at one time or another were your class- mates have dropped out or fallen by the wayside. It takes a real man to complete his law course at a night school, and especially at the National, with its high standards of classroom work and examinations. The faculty constantly derives new stimulus from contact with the type of student who will not be denied. It is not difficult, therefore, for me as their representative confidently to predict a high average of success for you, in the law or in avocations in which a legal education will be helpful. Before you entered the law school you had demonstrated an ability to earn an honorabl e livelihood. While in the school you proved your ability to carry a double load of sacrifice and industry. You need not fear the com- petition of those who at the date of their graduation from institutions of greater prestige in purely academic circles can look back upon those advantages and opportunities only which have come to them through the generosity and bounty of others. You may be assured that the officers and faculty of the School will watch your future progress with interest and gladly welcome the opportunity to help you in any and every way. Good-bye, therefore, and continue to deserve the best of luck. Charles F. Carusi. Chancellor. Page 16 JOHN L. CASSIN, LL.M. Assistant Dean R. CASSIN was born at Wash- ington, D. C., in 1879. He is a Washingtonian in every sense of the word for he was born, raised and educated in Wash- ington. After completing the graded and the high school work he entered Georgetown University Law School from which he received the degree of LL.B. in 1901. The following year he entered the National University Law School and received the degree of LL.M., and was admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. Mr. Cas- sin is Secretary of the Board of Trus- tees of the National University and has faithfully served first as Treasurer and later as Assistant Dean of our Alma Mater for the last twenty-four years. During the day he is kept busy with his legal practice and at night he is kept equally busy in look- ing after the welfare and interest of the student body at large. The stu- dents are his friends for he has been considerate at all times. HAYDE N JOHNSON, LL.M. Executive Secretary of the Board of T rustees T ' S all very simple, you see. That is the statement every jews student is used to hearing in the famous Equity Text course. That is true even in the most complicated situations. He is also the representative of the School on the Bar Examining Committee of the District of Columbia. Some of his famous situations presented in quiz, which even baffled the astute Mr. Jus- tice Siddons will long be remembered by the Class. Page 17 Res Ipsa Loquitor By Lex Loci Contractus.

Professor of Evidence and the Law of Negotiable Instruments Professor of Equity and Associate Justice Moot Court of Appeals CD R. JUSTICE SIDDONS was born in London, England, November 21, 1864. He grad- uated from Columbian, now George Washington, University Law School with the degree of Master of Laws and in 1887 was admitted to the District of Columbia Bar. Mr. Justice Siddons has had an interest- ing career since coming to Washing- ton. He was employed in the United States Treasury Department from 1879 to 1885. In 1907 he served on the Home Commission created by President Roosevelt. Later he served as counsel in the “Pious Fund " case before The Hague Tribunal. At one time he was a member of the Com- mission on Uniform State Laws for the District of Columbia. In 1915 President Wilson appointed him an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, which honored position he still holds. Mr. Justice Siddons has been a mem- ber of the faculty for many years. ROFESSOR JOHNSON is the Executive Secretary of Na- iTOgu tional University Law School and has been connected with the school for a number of years. He is also a member of the law faculty, serving as Professor of Equity Juris- prudence. In addition to teaching law he is an Associate Justice of the Moot Court of Appeals of the Uni- versity. Professor Johnson is a mem- ber of the Bar of the District of Co- lumbia and has practiced law therein for a number of years, maintaining law offices in the Commercial Na- tional Bank Building. His extraor- dinary faculty for remembering dates, citations of law cases, and so forth, will long be remembered by the stu- dent body of National University. He is an instructor of unusual ability and his earnest endeavor to assist the law students has served to make friends for him by the score who will always remember him on this behalf. Page 2 1 Class of Nineteen Twenty-seven. National University Law S nool, Washington, D. C. I have lectured at the National University Law School for almost a quar- ter of a century. Without making or desiring to make any comparisons, I can say that for intelligent appreciation, patient endurance and outstanding ability the Class of Nineteen Twenty-seven occupies a high place in my memory. Your intelligent appreciation was evidenced by the close attention you gave to lectures which were certain at times to be more or less tedious; your patient endurance was manifested by the fact that you successfully concealed all appearances of being bored; and your ability was shown in the high grade of the examination papers. I beg to assure you that nothing but the most pleasant recollections are associated in my mind with the lectures it was my privilege to give, and mingled with these recollections is an abiding memory of the courtesy and consideration on your part which was shown me at all times. Wishing for every member of the Class the prosperity which the sin- cerity of the efforts of each of you richly deserves, believe me, Faithfully yours, Conrad H. Syme. ROFESSOR SYME was born at Lewisburg, West Virginia, amgs January 13, 1868. He studied ““ law at National University Law School, from which he gradu- ated with the degree of Master of Laws. He joined the law faculty of National University many years ago and has taught at different times the subject of Law of Carriers, Criminal Procedure, Municipal Corporations, Suretyship and others. Professor Syme has practiced law in the City of Washington for years. He was coun- sel for defendant in the Post Office Cases in 1903. From 1913 to 1920 he served as Corporation Counsel of the District of Columbia. Professor Syme was a delegate from this city to the Atlanta Exposition. He is a member of the Board of Trade, the Chamber of Commerce, National Press Club, University Club and Dis- trict of Columbia Bar Association. Professor Syme ' s lectures always proved to be exceedingly interesting as well as instructive. R. JUSTICE ROBB was born in the state of Vermont on November 14, 1867, the son of Isaac and Clara S. (Mat- thews) Robb. He practiced law at Bellows Falls, Vermont, during the period from 1894 to 1902. From 1904 to 1906 he served as Assistant Attorney-General of the United States. In 1906 President Roosevelt appointed him an Associate Justice of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, which position of honor he occupies at the present time. National University Law School was indeed fortunate in securing the services of Mr. Justice Robb as an instructor of law. He has taught the subjects of Equity and Admiralty Law since be- coming a member of the faculty of National University, and his marked ability as an instructor coupled with his pleasing personality has indeed proved profitable to the student body and has made many friends for him. Mr. Justice Robb is an honorary member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. 1 i Page 23 Farewell , Class of 1927 ! ITH the graduation of its members in prospect, the Class of 1927 bids farewell to the scenes of its legal lucubrations that com- menced three years ago, and passes out of National University to the great beyond. Possessing no clairvoyant powers, it is beyond the ken of this well-wishing friend to predict the future of the individual members of the class in the fields of actual practice of the law. Charles Dickens’ immortal character, Wilkins Micawber, approached his pros- pective study of jurisprudence with the premise that he had had considerable experience with the law, as a defendant on civil process. Of course, no member of the Class of 1927 will have this unfortunate experience; especially as the legal lore here absorbed should constitute the series of beacon lights marking the channel to substantial prosperity in the professional field of the law. It has often been said that the first thing a good lawyer did, after being admitted to practice, was to forget everything he had learned in law school; such an unhappy ending to the ha rd grind of the last three years is not commended to your favorable consideration. Even yet will the little books, whether their color be green or otherwise, point the way to those principles which should guide the wise counsellor in the daily walks of life. Farewell, Class of 1927! You have budded well in National University; may you do equally well in the ranks of the profession. Roger O’Donnell. ROGER O ' DONNELL, LL.M. TURIN R. BOONE, LL.M.

Page 25 mw yjKi 7 " s= J W uLj To the Class of 1927 : T is not without regret that I take leave of the members of the Class of 1927, but in a larger sense all must rejoice that you go forth to make practical use of the talents here improved or acquired, since for that purpose you came. Some of you will not enter into the practice of law, but in whatever effort you may engage, it is certain that your success will be advanced and increased by reason of knowledge of the law. Many of you will enter the legal profession. You will find in that pro- fession fair and generous men and women who will welcome you and assist you; and you will learn, in your time, to receive their help gratefully, and to give what you can freely. May you live well and prosper abundantly, and may we who were your teachers continue to merit your loyal friendship. Faithfully yours, Glenn Willett. Page 2 6 GLENN WILLETT, LL.M.

He later came to Washington, and in 1910 entered the National Uni- versity Law School, graduating in 1913 with the degree of Master of Laws. Professor Willett was admitted to the Bar of the District of Columbia in 1913, and soon after his admission began prac- ticing law. He served as Assistant United States Attorney from 1917 to 1920, when he resigned to resume the practice of law. Professor Willett has been a member of the faculty of Na- tional University Law School for ten years. WALTER M. B ASTI AN, LL.M.

His permanent address is 1211 Farragut Street, N.W., Wash- ington, D. C. Page 27 To the Class of 1927 : OUR spokesman requested me to say good-bye to you in about five hundred words; a wonderful tribute to a lawyer ' s brevity of speech. This generous allotment of space might be utilized, profitably, for a farewell lecture to clear up some of the doubtful points in the law of contracts or real property, so many of which we left unsettled in the class room. Nevertheless, I shall refrain from giving you further instances of disagreements between our old friends Doe and Roe, over oral contracts, not to be performed within a year; the right to remove fixtures; or whether a right in another s land is a license or an easement. To attempt to give you a lecture, now, might be disastrous to me. In the past, you were students, deferential in your deportment and patient with the deficiencies of your teachers, whether you agreed with everything they said or not. Now you are lawyers, with every right to disagree, to combat and argue; and I should not feel at all safe in re-opening either the subject of contracts, as stated by Lawson, or real property, as given by Tiffany. Let us, instead, remember the many pleasant hours we spent together in the past, considering those subjects, and, for the future, resolve to continue our studies, even more intensively. But, if I cannot again talk to you as your teacher, I have a greater pleasure, as a lawyer, in welcoming you into our profession. From my heart, I wish you the highest measure of success, and am confident that many of you will attain it. Faithfully yours, Thomas H. Patterson. THOMAS H. PATTERSON, LL.M. VERNON E. WEST, LL.M.

Professor Patterson has been a member of the faculty of National University Law School since 1919 as Associate Professor of the Law of Real Property and as Professor of the Law of Contracts. As Professor of Contracts, Professor Patterson is one of the first instructors the fresh- man comes in contact with and his masterful handling of that subject makes it exceedingly interesting as well as thoroughly instructive. Professor of Insurance ROFESSOR VERNON E. WEST graduated from H55H3 Georgetown University in 1908 with the degree of Bachelor of Laws and from the same university in 1909 with the degree of Master of Laws.

National University School of Law lg »5wjj | HAVE been asked to say a few words of greeting and farewell to PH Pjgfl the Class of 1927. I sincerely feel it to be both a privilege and an ||§ 4 y|P| honor to comply. But I do not intend to be formal or to indulge in platitudes, but to talk to you through this medium just as though we were back again in the class room where we have spent three years in delightful and mutually helpful companionship, developing, it is true, some knowledge of the law, but at the same time building an enduring friendship which we can always cherish in the knowledge that it is based upon the soundest of foundations,— mutual respect and sincerity of purpose. Of course, it goes without saying (but I want to say it anyhow) that I wish to each and everyone of you that reasonable degree of success entitled to be expected from earnest, conscientious endeavor and careful preparation. That such portion will be yours I feel confident. But now I find I can not resist the last opportunity I shall have, when you are not in a position to talk back, to inflict upon you the effusion shortly to follow. I must first, however, in fulfillment of a solemn compact of com- promise with Mrs. Barse, tell you the history of it. I am not a poet (you won ' t argue this when you have finished this perusal) , but at rare intervals 1 break (break is appropriate) into verse. And so I prepared some such for this occasion. When Mrs. Barse read them, she most emphatically affirmed that as a poet I would make a good bricklayer. I have abiding respect for her judgment on all subjects (one can not be mar- ried for eight years without reaching that stage unless one is entirely devoid of the first principles of daily observation) and hence conceded that perhaps such might be the case. But I contended, nevertheless, that although I might not be a good poet, I wanted this class to know what a good bricklayer I am. She insisted that if I put the verses in, she wanted the record to show her objection and exception duly noted. So we compromised (as usual) by agreeing to do it her way. « , And here are the verses. In all seriousness, they are crude, but they do contain a thought which I hope will be helpful often in the days to come. To the Class of ’Twenty-seven, Ready now to start the fray, Send I you these words of leaven Of your knowledge stored away. Useful are those Legal Rules. Cherished by the each of you. But at most they’re only tools. For the Pathway each must hew ! Tools cannot the struggle win, Else ' twould be a simple plan. But the force comes from within! ’Tis Courage! for each daily span. Courage to give one’s honest view, Courage to lose a case hard-fought, Courage when fees are small and few, Courage to be a Dead Game Sport! George P. Barse.

He was appointed Commissioner of Pat- ents in 1921. This is his second year on our faculty and his course, in one of the most scientific and tech- nical gardens of the law, has been a never ending surprise as to its sim- plicity in the hands of this capable instructor. Page 38 DANIEL PERCY HICKLING, M.D. Professor of Medical Jurisprudence O R. HICKLING was born in 1863, and graduated from the 535 25 Georgetown Medical College in 1884.

He graduated from Georgetown University Law School with the LL.B. degree in 1918. He was admitted to the Bar in the same year. He is now an At- torney Examiner in the Interstate Commerce Commission. We feel as though, despite the fact that the class of ’27 did not get their instruc- tion under him, we should comment upon the thorough way in which he handles his subject.

Mr. Bellew served as Mar- riage 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. Graciously assisting the embryo lawyers through the treach- erous mazes of their practice court work, Mr. Bellew has thereby added to his already long list of friends the entire class. We shall not feel en- tirely among strangers if some real case should bring us into Equity Number One. Page 44 P. H. MARSHALL, LL.M. Professor of Municipal Corporations Rwl HIS is Professor Marshall’s 1 } first year on our faculty, how- Iggng ever, in that short space of time, he has endeared himself to the present graduating class to the extent that we insisted that he make his appearance in the year book.

He was admit- ted to the Bar of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia the same year and has been engaged in the general practice of law ever since. Although he has given his criminal law course but once, he has thor- oughly impressed us with the com- pleteness of his preparation and the painstaking care with which he ex- plains the high points of that intri- cate subject. We understand his hobby is the translation from the Latin to English of the original Magna Charta. Page 45 CHARLES MELVIN NEFF, Ph.B., LL.B. CHARLES S. LOBINGIER, Ph.D., D.C.L. Professor of Equity Cases Professor of Roman and Civil Law ROFESSOR NEFF is a new- comer on the faculty.

P. L. at National. He was admitted to the District of Columbia and Kentucky Bars in 1922. He is employed as an Examiner for the Interstate Com- merce Commission. We also under- stand that during his graduating year he served as Assistant Editor in Chief of the Year Book and that fact naturally kindled a kindly interest in the heart of this year’s DOCKET Staff. EDSON L. WHITNEY, Ph.D., D.C.L. Professor of Roman Law O — R. WHITNEY has always been a decided booster for gr cs every constructive school en- terprise and that is probably founded on his own extensive schol- astic acquirements. He received his A.B. and A.M. from Harvard Uni- versity in 1 8 8 5 and 1888, respectively, his LL.B. from Boston University in 1887; Harvard bestowed the de- gree of Ph.D. on him in 1890 and American University the D.C.L. He was admitted to the Massachusetts Bar in 1886. At the present time he is Economic Analyst in the Bureau of Labor Statistics. Page 4 7 PARTICEPS CRIMINUS I do not know what cause there be To cast opprobrium on the Faculty, Nor why that I should risk my life, Chance dire death or lesser strife, By writing thus in witless rhymes When men have hanged for lesser crimes. Nor does the Muse my pen inspire — In sooth, I struggle in the mire. For who could rise in rhyming flight To sing in words of sheer delight Of Turin Boone, of Vernon West, Or of the Dean, his spats or vest? In memory I live once more That October night in ’twenty-four. Judge Siddons and Dean of National Spoke words — and words SO rational. I took it all as truth because I’d yet to learn ’twas apple sauce. And in that first term came Tom Pat, I thank the gods there be for that. ’Twas there we learned of old John Doe Who sometimes dealt with Richard Roe In terms of Contract, good or bad, While later on, a farm they had. Came Willett, too, with mien austere But not but that a smile was near. Behind a mask of faint reserve ’Twas plain that he was here to serve, Tho’ sometimes when he sat upon the bench, He served me with a monkey-wrench. Judge Siddons started Bills and Notes. He stopped with no dissenting votes. Perhaps he heard how great our joy, Perhaps he heard some happy boy Rejoice to his distaste. In consequence He gave us H--1 in Evidence. Where Siddons fell, Barse took the mat His only fault, a two-quart hat. In words which e’en the Freshmen understand Made plain the laws of notes and land; Explained the rule in Shelly’s case; Wrote on each heart, “This is my Place.’’ In crimes was Bailey quite adept For that he taught me as I slept, I knew no crimes before his class And tho’ his exam I failed to pass, Still I assert results were fine, Asleep, I’d learned fully sixty-nine. Page 48 Perhaps Peyt. Gordon, suave and bland, Helped me in Crimes. He took a hand, Came oft to class and read a book, Looked wise, and wore an unctious look. More often wore a low-cut vest, And hard-boiled shirt upon his chest. And now whatever else I do I needs must speak of Waterloo. Common Law Pleading you know I mean Of Roger and his book so green, Sadly I confess to utter rout, I never knew what ’twas all about. I never asked what mark I made; I knew a traverse too well laid. From praecipe to verdict found My muddled mind was barren ground. Absque hoc, I knew the game Replication injuria, which is the same. A line or two within this hymn I must here dedicate to Connie Syme. He spoke of everything mankind ever saw, And once even mentioned a subject of the law. When lecturing in nothing he failed to dip, Then he examined us in partnership. There was Bastian and Munter and old Louie Dent; The last an old walrus so mentally bent That tho’ hired to discourse on devises and wills You’d thought him concerned with livers and pills. And Peyser and Myers had something to say, Tho what, God knows, I don’t to this day. There was Johnson and Putney and Robb, one and Emerson, Hickling and Russel Bellew. Marshall, Anderson and Howard LeRoy, Sherman and Coombe and Richard Flournoy. And others whose names, forgotten, left out, Will die of green grief, I’ve not the least doubt. Here ends the roll of the boys in the mill, Except for Chick Cassin in charge of the till. With a sad little smile he took all our jack And a ‘yaller’ receipt was all we got back, But somewhere, sometime, in a good poker game I hope to get back the half of the same. Now here’s not the story I started to tell, But I venture the guess it’s as clear as a bell That my meters and feet, my rhythm and rhyme, If rather unique, are proper in time. With subjects diverse as many of these, The usual product is a big hunk of cheese. 9 ONE MORE RIVER TO CROSS WMmfM WWwW ' tf ' % ' w- : ij0 0pj0 S fw f ' % ' ■ ' 4 ?v£p f. f £ f , ' £ ?4- ' t‘v liTOOTte • | p ' . p v j| ■ ' ■ f i S ? , S s S : M to A k ' K ' K ' K k k ' k ) mWf:- ' W ' . • ' ' ' 1 fjg ■ ' ®mm WWA 11®® ■V ' | jj|| %:. ;k ' ?«’ -Vr?

Some positive persisting fools we know, Who, if once wrong will needs be always so; But you with pleasure own your errors past, And make each day a critic of the last . — Pope . E arrive at the end of our journey; we have reached the sacred por- tals of the law’s domain and timorously we seek admittance to that magic circle which has been the goal of our ambitions through weary, toil-filled months and years. And now that we are here, we pause to glance back over the road that we have trodden, to compare the realization with the dream, the victory of achievement with the pleasure of anticipation. We stop, too, for a hasty weighing off of that which we have received against that which we have given and we place time and thought and labor in the scale and try to balance them by knowledge acquired, ideas instilled, character enobled and intelligence heightened and perfected. Whether that task be pleasing or the reverse in its results, the acknowledgment must be the same — we have reaped as we have sown. Certain it is that whether our intrinsic garnerings have been notable or negligible, we are all the richer by that treasure of firm friendship which our years of association have given us, and even though as we come to the parting of the ways we must accept the realization that our paths lie in multifarious directions, there is yet the knowledge that in this respect, at least, we have gained something whose value will not pass with the passing of time. However, philosophy is not history, and as our duty is to tell the story of the class of 1927 and to do it chrono- logically and coherently as circumstances will permit, we must hark back to the days when, as the rawest of raw material, this dignified body of near graduates gathered in “the Old Lower Hall” to be informed by the Dean that we were the best-looking, brightest-beaming freshman class that the National University had ever known or was likely to know. Indeed, the Dean excelled himself on that occasion; he foretold the astounding things that would come to pass in the legal world when we, as a mere matter of form, absolutely unnecessary in our case, having taken the Bar examinations in the various States to be honored by our presence, should take our places in the forum in the year of grace, 1927. Class organization was the primary interest with us as soon as the dust of our coming had settled and, be it said to our credit, we proved some organ- izers. In the early stages of that process every man, woman and child in the class seemed possessed of an idea diametrically opposed to that of every other individual in the gathering, and all seemed determined to make their ideas the pivotal point on which our social and extra-academic activities were to turn. But Doug. Seeley was with us and, gulping the lump of bashfulness that rose in his throat, he took a hand in the fascinating game of bringing order out of chaos. Doug, believed with his friend, Alexander Pope, that: ' Tis not enough, your counsel still be true, Blunt truth more mischief than nice falsehoods do. Men must be taught as if you taught them not, And things unknown proposed as things forgot. Page 57 and by a judicious exercise of that profound diplomacy which will some day land him in the Senate, he got control of the farm bloc and the wet element, irrigation, so to speak, and the first thing Clem Robertson knew he was in the White House — at any rate he was President. The same streak of good for- tune gave to the class Gus. Bonanno, O. R. Lewis, E. W. Erickson and Miss Eogle as the other office holders. Miss Margaret Campbell, the popular choice for the office of First Vice-President, was compelled to leave us early in the year, greatly to the regret of her classmates. That first year of our association revealed much to us that was not to be found in text books nor within the province of professors to impart. Here we found keen intellectuality, there capacity and determination for hard work, everywhere a readiness to extend a helping hand to the other fellow. Our co-eds were a revelation in themselves. A handful of roses growing amidst a veritable harvest of thorns, they reared themselves to the pinnacle of their innate capability and keenness of mentality, becoming an element in the class out of all proportion to their numbers and explainable only by the intellectual and administrative talents with which nature had so generously equipped them. Who shall tell in detail of the endless activities into which the class as a unit, or in its subdivisional ramifications, plunged from the beginning of its existence? We were able to supply a distinctly creditable debating team for each of the societies, from whom men for inter-collegiate debating were chosen. In social events of our freshmen year our class gave promise of what was later to reach its development in unexcelled genius for the promotion of breath-tak- ing entertainment. If from the potentialities of our freshman year in this particular regard we single out the name of the indefatigable George Pickett, we feel safe from the charge of invidiousness, for events have proved that when we placed a high estimate on George ' s prowess as a contributor of dizzy entertainment, we were still being safely conservative, but of this more anon. The Greek letter fraternities, the National University Masonic Club, the Cy Pres Club and other similar organizations drew from our ranks in the first year of our studentship, members who were destined to become decided boosters of these organizations, while others of the class, eager for the promotion of interests dear to themselves, because associated with their native States, created, revived or helped keep going associations which have proved real adjuncts to the Alma Mater and effective bonds between the students of to-day and those of a far-distant yesterday. The second year was not greatly different from the first in point of student activity. More sophisticated than when we had made our debut as law students, we approached the task of class election with more dignity but with not less enthusiasm. The politicians had their forces better organized and expedition marked the handling of the delicate work of election. As usual those whom the majority of the class considered best fitted to hold the various offices were elected and, again as usual, they fully justified the confidence which the class as a whole placed in them. Mr. C. G. Davis proved an able President and his administration was characterized by many forward steps in the upbuilding of the organization which by now had settled itself into a composite group in which amiability and good-fellowship were the predominant and ever-present traits. Other officers for the year were Gus Bonanno and Miss Constance Fogle who were re-elected as Vice-President and Secretary, respectively; Mr. Jerome G. Kaufman, Treasurer; Mr. Adam A. Geibel, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Mr. A. S. Johnson, Orator. Mr. Johnson left us early in the year to enter upon his studies for the ministry, and while keenly regretting his departures, Page 58 the class felt that he was entering a profession in which his excellent qualities would find ample opportunity for expression. Our social committee of that year rendered yeoman s ervice. Mr. W. F. Martin, with his associates, Misses Fogle and Jarvis and Messrs. Bonanno and Roland placed the class’ interests before everything else and their self-sacrificing efforts were rewarded by marked success in their undertakings and by the whole- hearted appreciation of their classmates. Those of us who found our strongest attraction in the purely academic phase of the School’s activities had much to be thankful for. The second-year curriculum at the National is so arranged as to bring together perhaps the most interesting courses in the whole undergraduate schedule. Professor O’Donnell and his Little Green Book still linger in our memories, while our work under Judges Siddons, Robb and Bailey, Dr. Hayden Johnson and others formed a pleasant as well as a profitable part of the course. The pleasure attendant upon our assembling in October, 1926, for the last lap of the course was not altogether unalloyed. There was sadness, too, for some of the old familiar faces were missing. That which caused us all the keenest regret was the passing from our ranks, and from the circle of his nearer and dearer associates, of James W. Henderson, than whom, it is no exaggeration to say, there was no more sterling character, no more command- ing figure and no more genuinely sympathetic personality, in the membership of the Class of 1927. The tragedy which ended his life with such terrible swift- ness left us the poorer by a staunch friend and deprived the Bar of a potential member of exceptional worth. On the occasion of our first meeting after the opening of the academic year, President Davis made touching reference to Mr. Henderson’s death and appointed Messrs. C. B. Green and R. T. Joy a committee to draft suitable resolutions which were duly presented at the next meeting as follows: “WHEREAS, since the close of the last school year, it has pleased the Almighty to call from this life Mr. James Wilson Henderson, thus terminat- ing a career already marked by notable achievement and giving promise of further great accomplishment, And WHEREAS, the late Mr. Henderson was a member of the student- body of the National University Law School wherein he was held in high- est esteem and affection, BE It Therefore Resolved that we, the members of the Senior Class of the National University Law School, at this, our first meeting of the new academic year, do place on record an expression of the profound sense of loss which is ours in the early and tragic passing of one whom we knew as an honorable gentleman, a sincere friend, and a classmate whose work was ever worthy of emulation; And Be It Further Resolved that a copy of these Resolutions be forwarded to the family of the deceased, together with assurances of the deep sympathy which this Class feels for them in their bereavement.” Other members of the Junior Class had left us for other spheres of activity, among them being Milton E. Carter, one of the leaders of the Class in point of scholarship, who had gone to Kansas City where he is now an honored mem- ber of the Missouri Bar. At our October meeting we elected the Year Book staff by unanimous ballot, Mr. Douglas A. Seeley being favored with the onerous office of Editor- in-Chief. As his associates, the Class elected Joe Ingraham, Business Manager, and Jerome Kaufman, Treasurer. A week later, the other officers having been nominated, the general election took place. It is worthy of mention that some Page 59 of the nomination speec hes were “wows. " That isn ' t a real word but it is the only one sufficiently descriptive to do duty in this connection. The dust of Mark Antony, Cicero and those other ancient, garrulous gentlemen of whom we have heard, must have turned from white, if it was white, to a sickly green. When the nominators had finished, the Class looked around for the subjects of the breath-taking panegyrics, but they were not present; in fact, they never had been present, for if by the most astounding of accidents they had ever been born, they had not been permitted to remain on this earth long enough to take one long breath. These outbreaks of spontaneous combustion raised another question. We needed a class orator, but after that whom should we choose? Had there been a mute in the outfit, he would have been elected by acclamation there and then, but nature must have her way, and Ben E. Thompson was elected with little or no opposition. Eventually we lined up for the year’s work with the following officers: President, Mr. William F. Martin; Vice-President, Mr. Edward H. Wat- son; Secretary, Miss Constance Fogle; Treasurer, Mr. Jerome G. Kaufman: Sergeant-at-Arms, Mr. Elmer W. Erickson; Historian, Mr. Richard T. Joy; Orator, Mr. Ben E. Thompson. The election was carried out with an entire absence of those unpleasant occurrences that sometimes characterize such events. Socially, the Smoker held in January outshone all previous events of the kind in the history of the National. The affair was engineered largely by George Pickett, who, having severed his active leadership of the Glee Club, gave himself up to the task of putting on a red-hot smoker. He succeeded. The Class said to George, as Michael Drayton said to George Sandys: “My worthy George, by industry and use, Let ' s see what lines Virginia can produce. " and without a single doubt the “lines " were produced, but whether by our George’s individual efforts or with the aid of the cooperation of others, the authorities are about evenly divided. It was enough for the participants that the lines were there and that they were graceful. It is said that nothing to equal that smoker has ever been held by a National University Senior class and those who were present unanimously agreed that, to use a much-worn phrase, it was a success from soup to nuts. And now that we have told the story of the Class, poorly and inade- quately, it must be admitted, it remains only for us to take our leave of the Alma Mater who has been so considerate and so good to us. We have learned to cherish for our school a feeling of friendliness, of veneration that will endure throughout the years. In it we have come to know each other and to appre- ciate each other ' s point of view; we have learned much that the law does not embrace and that knowledge has helped prepare us the better for the work we have in hand. To our professors we owe a debt of gratitude which we can never hope to repay; the best we can do is to assure them that we esteem them very highly and are mindful of the priceless gifts we have received at their hands. So, too, are we sincerely appreciative of the unfailing courtesies of the adminis- tration who have at all times disregarded personal inconvenience to be helpful to us in our work. To the Class of ’28, who a year from now will be taking their leave of the school, we would say that the road which they still have to travel, though beset by many difficulties, can be made a pleasant one if approached in the spirit of unselfishness and tolerance and in the firm belief that as they give generously, so they shall receive abundantly.

ADAMS received the “cov- eted” Paper in 1926, and this year is a candidate for an LL.M. degree. It is indeed with sincere regret that we see the time ap- proaching when she will no longer be with us. She is another one of those hard workers, with the interest of the school at heart, as is evidenced by her association in the Kappa Beta Pi, and formerly holding the offices of Treasurer and President of the Cy Pres Club. Ella was brought up “in the law” as it were, her father being a lawyer of repute, so of course, it was natural that she should find her way to our Alma Mater and there become the shining scholastic light in her battle for an LL.M. She not only graduated with honors last year, but was shortly thereafter admitted to the practice of Law in our courts. She is from Ac- cotink, Va., but that’s better than being there. The qualities she pos- sesses will undoubtedly bring her suc- cess in her chosen profession, and we confidently expect to hear much of her in the future. HORACE MARTINEZ AMORES District of Columbia “Learning by study must be won ’Twas ne ' er entail ' d from sire to son " UBY is another one of those fellows of rare discernment, for he did not join us until after two years at Georgetown University. He is also a graduate of Emerson Institute. “Cuby” engages in semi-pro ball in his off time. Though small in stature and young in years, “Cuby” has acquired a most thorough knowledge of the law. He is a native born Washingtonian. Dur- ing our short association with him, we have realized that he is a man among men. His hard and conscien- tious work has assured us that the legal profession will soon gain by the acquisition of this, our serious- minded friend. “Cuby” is a regular fellow, liked bv all. Our best wishes are with vou, “Cuby,” good luck and Godspeed.

Quiet, unassuming, considerate al- ways, Harry ' s high worth is indelibly stamped on the hearts of his class- mates. As a student, as a pal, as a friend, his charm has captivated all of us. Harry received his prelimi- nary education at St. Paul’s Academy and Ecole Notre Dame, Bourboune, France. He is also a graduate of Georgetown Foreign Service School and a former member of that Law School. He distinguished himself in service during the late mix-up on the other side in the Alsace, Meuse-Ar- gonne offensive, as a “Buck Private’’ in the rear rank, 104th Field Sig. Bat. When he leaves Uncle Sam’s employment and strikes out for him- self, his accomplishments will be emblazoned on the book of fame. (Almost overlooked. We are indeed glad to announce that Harry recently became a Member of the Virginia Bar, which merelv confirms that his success lies but little ahead, and al- most within his grasp.) OC, we sure will miss you, to say the least. We have seen you around these parts for so long a time, we sort of feel you are one of the permanent fixtures of the institution. “Doc’’ is a native of the Empire State. A more earnest and conscientious student of the law we have yet to see, and a regular fel- low at that. “Doc” received an LL.B. degree from this school last year. Now he receives an LL.M., A.B., and possibly an M.P.L. degree. He also holds an M.D. degree, and a DD.S. degree, and we don’t know where “Doc’’ will stop in the matter of de- grees. In fact, “Doc’’ is so burdened with degrees that he took with him a partner a short time ago, not to assist him in medicine, dentistry, or law, but more so in domestic relations. The most sincere wishes of your classmates go with you and the Mrs., and may the good fortune and suc- cess that is now yours never depart. Page 62 JOSEPH A.

Answering his country’s call in May, 1917, Joe served overseas with the Twenty-seventh Division and was discharged in January, 1920, during which time he attained the high rank of Private, 1st Class. Joe emerged from the war minus both legs and the better part of a hand, the result of wounds received Sep- tember 29, 1918. There is no dross in Joe’s make-up.

We doubt there is a harder worker or ever has been a harder worker than “Eddie.” No class ac- tivity has lacked her hearty coopera- tion. Besides being an active mem- ber in the Kappa Beta Pi Legal So- rority and former Secretary of the Cy Pres Club, Eastern Star, and ’steen other local and national associations, “Eddie” is one of the firm of Avery Avery, Certified Public Accountants and Attorneys-at-Law. She is one of our prominent Portias, and thus, she already has a good start toward suc- cess. Page 63 J. THAD BAKER Ardmore, Oklahoma " The present is great with the future to come.” AKER received his LL.B. de- gree from this University even before most of us realized what we were missing, having graduated from National in 1922. He is now a candidate for an LL.M. degree. He comes from the land of copper and rugged branches, famous for its glorious sunsets. Of the men distinguished in our Class, he has left us with a strong and vivid impression of an affable personality, manner and disposition. Most of us don ' t know, but he has had quite a political career. He was the young- est member of the Oklahoma Legisla- ture when war was declared, to resign and enter the service. He is an active member in the Sigma Alpha Epsilon, Phi Alpha Delta, a Shriner, and Commander of the Sergeant Jasper American Legion Post, known as the Lawyers’ Post, because 85 per cent of the membership are lawyers. FREDERICK G. BARKER District of Columbia " Gentleness and affability conquer at last ” [75fl RITZ received his LL.B. degree I I last year and is now a candi- Uwul date for the LL.M. His rec- ill rmfl or d is a creditable one and will doubtless continue to be so as he ad- vances in the legal world. Another reason why so many of Washington’s flappers are using hair dye. Lritz simply will not succumb to their charms, and consequently many hearts are broken among the fair sex annually. This proves what we have long suspected, that Lrederick G. is a courageous young man. He is a past master in that international sport of “Galloping Dominoes,’’ we are told. He also helped to make famous the Charleston and Blackbottom. Quiet and unassuming though he is, he has made many friends who will miss his congenial friendship when we part in June. A good student, a regular fel- low, — he will surelv reflect naught but credit on old National. Best wishes, Lritz.

Our one regret is that we have been denied the pleasure of his companionship for a large por- tion of our journey through Na- tional. His preliminary legal educa- tion was obtained at the K. C. School, but being a young man of rare discernment, came over to Na- tional after two years there. His genial disposition and cordial manner have won him many friends during his period with us. Of calm and even demeanor, “Marty” exhibited the qualities which make for success as a lawyer, and when he has secured unto himself numerous triumphs be- fore the bar of justice, we know he will look back upon his short time spent at National as interesting and enlightening.

He will always be remembered by us as a man of many sterling qualities, keen intel- lect, powerful mind, and industrious habits. Upon his return to Massa- chusetts, the application of these ad- mirable characteristics will enable him to successfully surmount the many difficult obstacles that tend to impede progress on the road to fame.

At National he has figured promi- nently in the debating societies, hav- ing been a member of the team which so nobly defeated Bridgewater Col- lege. An ardent baseball and basket- ball fan, Chester may be seen rooting vigorously at most any of the worth- while games around town. Judging by the esteem in which he is held by the folks back home, it is not at all unlikely that when he takes his LL.B., and leaves these parts, he will rank foremost in the practice of crim- inal law in his state and incidentally, Senator Pat Harrison will be hard pushed if he is to retain his place on the “Hill.

Jack received his LL.B. here last year, so of course, this year he is a candidate for the LL.M. degree. A student of quiet demeanor, but always knowing the point of law involved; a convincing talker and a man of strong opinions, he is a dan- gerous opponent to draw into an argument. When Jack returns to the “Great Open Spaces,” where men are men and women do as they please, he will have further opportunity to enjoy his favorite pastime — moun- taineering, with a degree on each shoulder. He is a Mason, member of the Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Frater- nity, and of the Bachelor’s Brigade. B ‘Everything is for the best in this best of possible worlds ” AILIN’ from the Horse Racin’ State, William E. evidently WExH brought with him the idea that it is alright to race an automobile through the streets of Washington; and he, perhaps, thought the best way for a rising young lawyer to rise is to get some real practice. Anyway, after “tellin’ it to the Judge,” he decided that per- haps he and Pierre Brogue had bet- ter come back to National and study for a couple of years more before starting out “on their own.” So, he is generously helping to attend to Uncle Sam’s business in the clerical line while finishing the job at Na- tional, where he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. In addition to break- ing the monotony by indulging in fast driving, he plays golf, tennis, etc., all of which goes to show that Mrs. Berry has one of those “regular fellows” for a husband. Bill is a Mason (he should be an Elk — Brother Bill) , and has done extensive work in debating, both supervising and participating. He is a graduate from Western Kentucky State Normal.

We know, too, that we shall not watch in vain, for, who would ask for a better combina- tion than good sound common sense and good judgment, spiced with just the right amount of ambition. “Blackie” is a traveling auditor, and we understand he likes the ladies, in other words, he is amongst those “not married.” It is hard to tell whether he likes law or the ladies bet- ter, but he is equally successful with both.

He is a man of ability and character, and we know that he will do well everything he may undertake. We doubt whether there is a more active member of the class than Gus. As an offi- cer of the Social and Prom Commit- tees, Treasurer of the Freshman Class, and Vice-President of the Junior Class, he has certainly distinguished himself. He is Chief Clerk in the Office of the Chief of Chaplains, War Department, and after being a mem- ber of the United States Army for over eight years, was commissioned a Captain in the Reserve Corps.

He is one of those likeable fellows, like Brother Gus, who has endeared him- self in the hearts of every member of the class, and we have found him re- liable, honest and loyal; furthermore, truly a gentleman. He has been true to his purpose, a desire to learn the law, and while he has not divulged, so far as we know, the secret of the particular line he expects to follow in the practice of law, we imagine he will take and handle well, everything that comes along.

Leo Kolb and is putting into practice some of the things he learned about real prop- erty and insurance. For outdoor ex- ercise, he indulges in the favorite pas- time of chasing the little white ball over the green; also hunting, fishing and swimming. He also is a dancer of class. We think he also enjoys the national sport of “Galloping Dominoes.” Bill expects to engage in General Insurance and Real Estate Business. (Almost overlooked.) He is single (why or how, we confess we do not know) . Page 70 RUSSELL E.

Young in years, but much older in intel- lect, “Buzz” came to us with an unquenchable thirst for legal knowledge.

Primarily, he is a student and a gentleman who radi- ates personality, a hale fellow well met, to say more would be to detract. “Buzz” is an Accountant, single and his favorite pastime is golf. Not only does he keep up with the law, but is an active member in the Sigma Nu Phi, Masonic Lodge, Temple Club, Washington Chapter No. 2, and Adoniram Council. We are loath to lose his friendly presence, yet, as he conquered his studies, so he must go forth to make his mark in the field of legal enterprise. And we predict his success in terms un- measured. JOHN A. CAMPBELL Brooklyn, New York “Long traveled in the wags of men.” UDGE had the LL.B. degree conferred upon him at the Na- tional in 1926.

His record is a creditable one and will doubtless con- tinue to be so as he advances in the legal world. “Judge " is a keen stu- dent, took quite an active part in the war with Cuba and in the World War. We understand his favorite pas- time is traveling, and if he has not yet completed his visits to the few re- maining countries of the globe to which he has not paid his respects, we believe he will go forth in short order, with one degree on each shoulder, although he boasts of sev- eral other degrees, as he is a retired Electrical Engineer.

CARROLL District of Columbia “A good resolve will make any port.’’ v37| ANY are called but few are (I) chosen! “Shotgun” seems des- tined to be one of the chosen few. Good-natured and pos- sessing a faculty for making friends has made Johnny a very popular stu- dent. He is one of the foremost among the ever-readys in the class. Upon no occasion has he been found wanting in a matter of an up to the minute dissertation on an abstruse point in recitation. Anxious ones always breathe a sigh of relief as the “proph” arrives at his name on the class list. Johnny is secretary to the Honorable A. J. Sabath, is married, and takes great interest in baseball, football, soccer, tennis, golf and track. He has an enviable war record as a First-Class Pilot in the Air Serv- ice, University of California, his class being “War Birds,” Oxford Univer- sity, having had quite a write-up in the “Liberty” a short time ago. Johnny is a genial companion and a thorough gentleman. That those qualities presage an honorable and well-filled future must follow with indubitable logic. ERIOUS student, jolly good fellow and staunch friend is Bill. Bill served as a Sergeant in the Medical Corps in the darker days. He is at present follow- ing the calling of the law, being a Patent Attorney with offices in the Victor Building, and, therefore, a few steps ahead of the rest of the class. He is a member of the Washington Centennial Lodge, No. 14, of the Masonic Order. He is married (nothing else wrong with him), and his main hobby is enjoying week-end motor trips (with his family, we pre- sume, although he doesn’t state). The reason Bill is devoting his time to Patent Law is obvious, and as he himself states, “That I have chosen the Field of Patent law, where the maze of Real Property will worry me no more.” With his mag netic personality and sterling character, we are sure Bill will realize his greatest ambitions. Page 72 ARTHUR CLARK Front Roval. Virginia “It is courage that vanquishes in war ” HEN this regular fellow came to National in quest of an LL.B., his affable manner soon won him a host of friends, and his assiduous appli- plication to the perplexities of the law, the admiration of his fellow classmates. Arthur is a member of Uncle Sam ' s army of Government employees, being employed as Auditor in the Income Tax Unit. He is a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. Before taking up the study of law at National, Arthur thought it was his duty to straighten out the affairs of the world, and, therefore, distinguished himself in the late war from 1917-1919, as a member of the 116th Infantry, serving notably in Alsace, St. Mihiel and Argonne. In the heat of the battle he was gassed, but we are glad he came through O. K.

He speaks promptly and rightly when spoken to, but never volunteers an interrupting re- mark. This is due, no doubt, to his studious inclinations, as evidenced by the record he has made during the time he has spent with us. Quiet and unostentatious in demeanor is he; yet, having a reserve force and tenacity of purpose which has always carried him through class work with success. William is an Associate Examiner at the Patent Office, and we understand he intends to pursue the Patent game. He also holds an A.B. degree from the Texas Christian University; and taught chemistry in that Univer- sity for a number of years. We are proud of your war record as Metal- lurgical Chemist. We are assured that you will always cling to those prin- ciples and strive toward the high ideals which are marked out as the goal of true success. HARVEY L.

He is Chancellor of the National University Chapter of Alpha Beta Phi and has made a host of friends in the student body who wish him all sorts of success in any field of the law he may undertake. “A jest is a very serious thing.” MILING FRANK will never be forgotten as our classmate who made us forget the tedious work ahead with that always-smiling countenance of his and his inexhaustible bag of jokes that he was ever ready to “spill” if he had any listeners. Frank’s wildest pastime, next to telling jokes and studying law, is dancing. He is can- didate for the LL.M., having received his FL.B. last year. He is a good debater and is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Fegal Fraternity. He expects to become one of those famous “Philadelphia lawyers” in the years to come. Good luck, Frank!

We guess he learned how practicing target shooting on Iowa’s far-famed hogs. During the World War he was in the Navy. He is now employed as an actuary but after he receives his LL.B. will probably practice out there where Real Property Law prac- tice is extensive.

We now regret that we didn’t get him sooner, for his sense of humor and ready wit has been a wel- come addition to our already well supplied War College. He tells us, and we believe it, that his burning ambition is to convict Willie Stevens. He served in the army during the war and is a member of the Masonic fra- ternity. o Page 19 EVERETT W.

He is at the present time in the State Department, but when he receives his LL.B. in June there will shortly thereafter be a vacancy caused by his admission to the bar and building up a practice in the District. ERL, the “Duke,” belongs to one of the “noble families” of Washington — in other words, he’s a native. He is associated with his father and uncle in the Pat- ent Law game, so he can eliminate the “starvation period” that some of our professors have told us about, and that some of us must face. Lucky young man! No wonder he enjoys “gallivanting.” His school activities, aside from his classroom work, have been confined, for the most part, to working for the Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity. He has been present at the school dances and banquets, danc- ing and dining being two of his spe- cial specialties.

He has not yet been caught in that snare which makes a man say “I do” and “I will,” so he has some battles coming to him about which he knows noth- ing at all.

His success along that line is best evidenced by the fact that he passed the District of Columbia Bar examination in December, 1926. Congratulations, Mr. Grigsby! His pet hobby is a secret, but we do know that his post-graduate work takes some of his spare time. He is a mem- ber of the Masonic Fraternity. He is employed in the Treasury Depart- ment, assisting in the aridization of the United States. He refuses to dis- close his methods, but remember, he’s a Kentuckian. He’s married and glad of it.

He has been a sort of stand-by when any diplomacy was needed in class politics, and when any arrangement for our social affairs required a “heavy man” Andy was there to deliver the goods. He was very prominent in the War College, in fact, more so than in the class room, and has been heard to de- liver some very powerful dissenting opinions on rulings of the Supreme Court, which, strange to say. in some instances sound reasonable. His war record includes service with bo th the Army and Marine Corps. He was vice-president of the Miller Debating Society, Chairman of the Social Com- mittee, and Treasurer of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity.

Receiving his early education in his home state, graduating from St. Johns Prep College at Danvers, he decided to be a lawyer and nat- urally matriculated at National where he is a candidate for the LL.B. degree. After shaking a mean hoof for the goddess of syncopation until the wee small hours, the next morn- ing never finds him too tired to get out early and knock that elusive pill around the “commons” down in Potomac Park, ordinarily called a golf course. He was with the 26th Division Reserve Corps and is still with Uncle Sam, but in a different capacity, being employed as a Post Office Clerk in the Senate Office Building. He is single — at present. Joe-ba aspires to be a successful law- yer and he certainly leaves National with the best wishes of his friends. ELLA OLDHAM HOWARD District of Columbia ‘ Happy he with such a mother. " RS.

Paul saw service as a sergeant in the Aviation Corps at Wright Field, whence he entered the Field Artillery Officers Training School at Camp Taylor and received his honorable discharge from there after the armistice. He is now engaged as a patent draftsman from which he finds welcome relief in los- ing golf balls and persecuting any- thing that can be any stretch of the imagination be classed as “game.” In other words, Paul hunts.

During his three years in law school he has held a respon- sible position in the Veterans’ Bureau but after graduation expects to enter the active practice of law. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity. ND now comes a real he-man from the wide open spaces. Joe Ingraham needs no intro- duction, at least to classes of the National who have seen his work in and on behalf of the School dur- ing his three years as a student. En- ergetic, handsome, single — oh! what’s the use. Like the babbling brook we might go on forever to enumerate his strong points. Joe is doing book- keeping in Washington while wait- ing for his degree, his other pastimes being tennis, swimming and evading designing girls. (We’ve heard things, though.) He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa and as business manager of The DOCKET he has been a tower of strength to that hard- worked and hard-bitten staff. Joe intends to set his face toward the set- ting sun when National is through with him, and in his native state he will practice the profession for which he is splendidly fitted by nature and training. Page 106 “ Marriage is a desperate thing .” 1 ERE is a man who has dared snipers’ bullets and Cupid’s W l 1 darts more times than he can count, and yet he lives — and laughs. Albert has reason to be proud of his record but she laughs best who laughs last. This son of the sunny slopes went overseas in 1917 with the American Expedition- ary Force and participated in four major engagements during his year in France. He is now freight tariff ex- aminer in the Interstate Commerce Commission and intends devoting himself to Interstate Commerce Law and practice when he has annexed his LL.B. Likely, too, he will do grad- uate work at the National for which he has a real fondness. A member of Sigma Nu Phi and of B. P. O. Elks, he is as keen for outdoor sports as he is for the quieter pastimes of the student. He hunts, fishes and, it is alleged, enjoys matrimony, as ap- plied to the other fellow. He is a hiker of some n®te and swings a wiley willow on occasion. Can we say more, or need we? “Time honored golf l I heard it whispered once That he who could not play was held a dunce .” AKE would have the world be- lieve that he is a staid, unemo- tional and intentional bach- elor. As a matter of fact he is just a bachelor because he does not believe in partnerships. His theory is that a man sinks everything he has in a partnership and for that rea- son he is strong for corporations. When a man can engage in matri- mony on the limited liability plan, watch “Jake’s” smoke as he races for the altar. He swings a wicked golf stick and says he gets great excitement out of it, so we will accept his word, out of courtesy if nothing else. He is put- ting in the time between now and his accession to vulgar wealth as a prac- ticing attorney in the capacity of buyer and bill clerk with the Wash- ington Tobacco Company. “Jake” is a candidate for the LL.B. degree and intends to make the District his field of endeavor following his ad- mission to the Bar.

Well, here is one of them, so draw your own conclusions. Unfortunately the pho- tographer’s art is a poor thing at best when it comes to a faithful portrayal of Evelyn nor can any pen-picture, however painstakingly executed, do her ample justice. Miss Jarvis enjoys golf more than anything else and is credited with having brought her game appreciably below the century mark in the past month or so. At any rate, she has a genuine liking for golf, which is the best thing heard in golf’s favor for many a day. Evelyn has taken a prominent part in National University organizations and activities during her studentship. She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi and of the Cy Pres Club of which she was vice-president last year. She has also served as co-ed editor of the National University Law Review and as a member of more than one of our social committees. ELLSWORTH D.

The loss, of course, will be the British Empire’s and it is still doubtful if that great power will give him up without a struggle. Dick has been our historian for the past two years and was at the beginning of the present year accorded the honor of nomination for the office of editor- -in-chief of The DOCKET, but he re- fused the crown for reasons un- known. Graduating from high school he spent two years in the teaching profession and a dozen or more in newspaper reporting and editing in his native land where he was also for a number of years official reporter of the legislature and assistant editor of legislative debates. He is now secre- tary to the Board of Deans of the Catholic University of America. ASH knows his value and he’s not particularly egotistical, either. His hobby is real es- tate, not the kind you read about in ponderous tomes, but the real honest-to-goodness, unromantic, money-making business of starting young married people on the road to everlasting debt. “Cash” says he would rather trade real estate than study real property, which of course, nobody believes. He has been an army sergeant in his time and therein lies the explanation of the determined way in which he applies himself to his work. In debating, too, his voice has betrayed the tone of one accus- tomed to be heard and heeded while his arguments always carried convic- tion. He is going to practice law in Pennsylvania when he has donned the silk and his success as a member of the Bar is assured. He is a mem- ber of both the Elks and Moose in addition to which he is prominent in the ranks of the distinguished order of Benedicts.

Jerry gave up golf for dues-collecting on the theory that for developing keenness of vision, the latter had the former pushed off the map.

Before coming to National, Jack put in about twelve years in newspaper work as a reporter and also as city editor and has naturally made the acquaint- ance of many famous and well- known people. Upon graduation he intends to practice law and also do some writing and we are quite sure he will meet with success in either field.

Although in the past Krit was something of a wanderer, his avowed intention now is to return to the “Boomer State” to settle down and practice his chosen profession. m Page 116 ' Born for success , he seemed.” ARLETON (queer how famil- iar one grows in year-book asms write-ups!) is domiciled (le- gaily speaking) in Voteless Washington. In fact, if we are cor- rectly informed, he was born and raised among the Cave Dwellers. He has made the best of his residence in this city of schools, having received a certificate of graduation in commer- cial scie nce from the Y. M. C. A. School of Accountancy before enter- ing National. He received the LL.B. degree last year and is now a candidate for the LL.M. and M. P. L. degrees. He saw service in the Marine Corps from August, 1918, to March, 1919, and now he helps to keep Uncle Sam’s accounts straight as an auditor in the Treasury Department. During his stay at National, he has made his mark in debating, winning honors in one of the inter-class debates.

" H IVING up to the reputation generally accredited to resi- gn dents of his native state, John, w ho hails from Wisconsin, is in his happiest mood as a dirt farmer. Outside of his regular hours of duty as an auditor and accountant in the Federal estate tax division of the Treasury Department, our curly headed and genial friend can usually be found digging in the dirt — either in his garden with a spade or hoe, or somewhere near the fairway on a golf course with a mashie or niblick. During the World War John did his bit as a member of the Medical De- partment of the Army, and then set- tled down and took unto himself a wife. He has no particular plans for the future, but unless indications fail, bids fair to furnish from Wisconsin a new member of the Senate. He belongs to the Knights of Columbus. O TTO is an addition to the class in his last year but in the short time it has been possible for us to become acquainted with him, he has impressed upon us his sincerity of purpose in his legal studies. He studied accounting at Pace and Pace Institute and took two years at another local law school. He is employed at present as an auditor in the income tax unit, but undoubt- edly will hit the gong in private prac- tice before the Board of Tax Appeals in the future.

However, John is a good scout at that and he has made many friends at National. His Moot Court work made us all sit up and take no- tice, but the fact that he brought down his bird made it all the more interesting at the final innings.

Perhaps he has accomplished so much because he is still single. In fact, he particularly stresses that he has steered clear of all alliances and affiliations, except as a voter with the G. O. P. But we ven- ture to say that such a blissful state of bachelorhood will not be for long. He is a candidate for the LL.M. and M.P.L., having received his LL.B. from the University of Indianapolis.

Craig is happily married, labors for Uncle Sam in the office of the general coun- sel of the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and is addicted to boating and fish- ing. The burning question, which none of his many friends can answer, is as to which of these activities gave him the opportunity to gain his pro- found knowledge of the character- istics, habits, and traits of goldfish. Many of us will long remember to our profit the eloquent and able, though extemporaneous, discourse he gave on that subject, and if he pleads his own cause with the fervency and zeal displayed on that occasion, his ambition to be the legal light in some soulless corporation will be realized. As we go to press, Craig has been awarded the high honor of valedic- torian of the class. “And when a lady ' s in the case , You know all other things give place ” RT is another one of the boys who has been a most success- ful ward leader in class poli- tics.

OBBIE is the good fellow we chose for our first class presi- dent, and we never regretted our choice. Throughout our association, Robbie has valiantly striven for solidarity in school and class spirit and the advancement of the profession of law. The legal knowledge exhibited by Robbie is ex- plained when we know that he holds the degree of A.B. from Syracuse University, studied law in Temple University, and has been admitted to the bars of North Carolina, Georgia and the District of Columbia Court of Appeals. He is a candidate for the degree of J. D. at National. Canoe- ing on the Potomac seems to be Rob- bie’s present hobby, but as captain of the Syracuse varsity track team, he was some hurdler. Robbie is a mem- ber of Phi Delta Theta and Sigma Nu Phi, is married, and has a daugh- ter. He is employed in the Income Tax Unit and will practice law upon graduation. We are with you. LAWRENCE E.

KASSEL WEINSTEIN District of Columbia “ Listen , my readers , and you shall hear One of the strangest stories in this book of the year” ASSEL WEINSTEIN, the subject of this write-up, is married and naturally has a father-in-law. Now as most of the married fellows say, father-in- laws are not always the best friends in the world, that is to the son-in- law, but Weiney certainly has an ex- ceptional one, for he has promised him five hundred dollars when he passes the District Bar, and unless we are greatly mistaken, he will do some collecting during the latter part of July, when the grades on the Bar exams are made known. With it he intends to take a trip across the country, with a view of establishing himself in business, possibly on the west coast. At present he is employed in the Government, but was formerly the proprietor of a hardware con- cern. Weiney was a member of a gas and flame regiment during the war, and claims Washington as his domi- cile. The class wishes him the best of luck as he now takes his leave with an LL.B. tucked safely away. Page 165 JOSEPH WHITEHEAD, JR. Chatham, Virginia “ The cautious seldom err.” w HITE claims the city of Chat- ham, Virginia, as his domi- Sggg cile. He is going strong for ““ the LL.B. degree at National and intends to practice after gradua- tion. His favorite sports are foot- ball and wrestling. In his own lan- guage he is “very much single,” but we think he is weakening, notwith- standing his declaration to the effect that his principal diversion is hating women. White is a member of Kappa Alpha Fraternity. He is an extremely likeable classmate, and we know he will be successful in his practice in the years to come. BURTON R. WILBUR District of Columbia “ Earnestness is the devotion of all the faculties ” © URT is another member of the Voteless Throng. Unas- suming and retiring in man- ner, he is a real fellow, with a heart as big as his body. Burt re- ceived the LL.B. degree last year and is now a candidate for the LL.M. His particular hobby is “fast driv- ing,” and it is assumed that he means driving a Rolls-Royce and not any of the little spheres that one drives over green grass or green felt. His school activities consisted particu- larly of work, and the result of his activities may be seen in his standing in the class. He is a member of the Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity.

CASANAVE HOWLE YOUNG District of Columbia L. BERNARD YOUNG Cadet, Missouri “It is hard to wive and thrive within a year.” INCHOR’S aweigh! Here we have “Toots,” a former in- jr mate of the United States Naval Academy, a recluse for four years in that great institution, and then, realizing the terrible mis- take he had made, he came to Na- tional to obtain one of those LL.B. degrees. Uncle Sam s military train- ing evidently made quite an impres- sion on him, however, for since the day he landed here he has been one of the outstanding members of that august body which meets nightly after and between classes, commonly and politely termed the War College. Unlike the majority of the students, Young claims Washington as his home, and this city can justly be proud to claim him. Not content with the mere responsibilities of a law student, he took unto himself a wife the second year here, but those who know Mrs. Young give him credit for rare judgment. In the banking game at present, his ambition is to own his own bank. “Statesman, yet friend of truth of soul sincere In action faithful and in honor clear.” RIGHAM is not from Salt Lake City, but is one of the contingent from Missouri. Ca- det being the town in which he heard for the first time, “He looks just like his father.” Another qual- ity which distinguishes him from the original Brigham is the fact that at this time he is single, although it would be hazardous to attempt to say just how long he will remain in that state of bliss which is so unap- preciated by bachelors. During the war he served with the Navy and upon his discharge studied accoun- tancy at Pace U Pace, and at present is doing work in that field in addi- tion to his work at National, where an LL.B. degree will be conferred upon him this June. It is under- stood that Young has political aspi- rations, and knowing him to be pos- sessed of a spirit of fairness, enthu- siasm and a keen sense of honor and duty, we look forward to the day when he will be addressed as “Hon. L. Bernard Young, M. C., from Mis- souri.” NETTIE MAY YOUNG Rosslyn, Virginia MANUEL GUEVARA ZAMORA Manila, Philippine Islands ‘ The world well tried , the sweetest thing in life Is the unclouded welcome of a wife ’ — r LADY of liberal thought, 1 keen intellect and power be- WE5 1 hind it, plus a most pleasing ““ personality, and there you have Miss Young, one young lady of whom old Virginia might well be proud. Little is known of her early trials and tribulations, nor of her elementary education, but where or how it was obtained is immaterial, for one needs only to talk to her for a short while to recognize a scholar through and through. Miss Young is a candidate for the LL.B. degree at National. At present a bookkeeper, it is her ambition and intention, upon graduating, to engage in legal work with her newly acquired husband, in which we are sure she will meet with much success, which is certainly well deserved. “ Manners , — the final and perfect flower of good character O the distant Philippines goes the honor of claiming Manuel Zamora as a native son. Coming to Washington as Social Secretary to the Resident Com- missioner from the Philippines, it was not long before he pursued the study of law, and being a very dis- criminating young fellow, naturally National was the school chosen, and now, after diligent and untiring ef- forts, is to leave, having acquired the LL.B. and M.P.L. Fond of dancing and driving, he is never too busy to participate in school activities, having served as a member of the Social and Prom Committee and has also served as vice - president of the Philippine Columbians. Being imbued with a burning desire to see his native Islands gain their independence and ever ready to debate on that subject, it is very probable that his ambition to return to Washington as a repre- sentative of his people will be grati- fied. Whether Manuel will return to the “Isles” alone, is a question for Cupid to decide.

Page 172 Retroprospecl N 1937 Dr. Hayden Johnson launched his movement for the aboli- tion of the Common Law courts and the substitution therefor of a universal system of Equity jurisprudence. I was delegated to visit various courts throughout the country with the object of picking up odd bits of information that might help strengthen the arguments that were being prepared in favor of the Johnson plan. It was in the course of this tour of inspection, if I may dignify my mission by that name, that I encountered many of the men and women of my year at the National University Law School, and I must confess that every time I hap- pened into a court in which one of my former classmates was practicing I completely forgot the real object of my presence there in the contemplation of his or her efforts to hamstring justice with the pointed arrows of law. I shall never forget the joy that filled me when, as I sat in a small court room in a county seat in Virginia one fine spring morning waiting for the fireworks to start, I beheld my old friend, Charlie Green, standing in a doorway leading onto the bench from what I rightly guessed to be the judge’s cham- bers. I rushed forward, impelled by the long-lost-brother impulse, but as I mounted the steps leading to the bench the words of greeting that were already on the tip of my tongue froze there. I was getting the iciest stare from my erstwhile friend. I said, “Hello, Charley!’’ in a sickly voice as I backed away but, of course, I got no answer. I felt I wouldn’t. I slunk back to my seat in some confusion and looked around for an explanation. It was forth- coming. A young fellow whisperingly asked me when I had left the home for feeble-minded. Didn’t you know that was the Judge you tried to tackle just now, he asked? I said that I had thought it was Charley Green, an old friend of mine. “Wa’al,” said my informant, “he mighta been Charley Green a hundred years or so ago, an’ he mighta been a friend o’ yourn, the which I don’t believe for a minute, but he’s now Judge Green, as you’ll see if you keep cool awhile.’’ By this time I had a chance to look around some more and I began to size up the members of the Bar. Could that be George Pickett sitting there scattering the contents of a huge brief-case on the trial table? It was, indeed, and sitting next to him was Joe Ashi whom likewise I had some difficulty recognizing for both he and George were decorated with long and none too tidy beards which at that time were becoming fashionable. I edged my way over to the table and the boys were really glad to see one of the old crowd. Just then Catlett Davis and Arthur Reed came in and before I had time to greet them, the Judge hit the bench with a gavel that looked and sounded like a fourteen-pound stone hammer and the tribunal was open for business. Strangely enough the case that had brought my legal friends together on this particular morning was a “horse case.” This struck me as the strangest thing I had yet experienced for horses had become almost extinct. I hinted my surprise to one of the attorneys who explained that Ex-Judge Patterson had established in that county a fund for the purchase and distribution of superannuated horse- flesh with the idea of perpetuating “horse cases” in court. It seems that the owner of a distillery had bought the horse now at issue from George Pickett’s client and that the horse had failed to measure up to the reputation given 1 him. Reed, who appeared with Joe Ashi for the distiller, was telling the Court that the horse was as full of defects as a dog was of fleas. Pickett held it was a case of caveat emptor while the counsel for the plaintiff claimed that it was res ipsa loquitor and nothing else. After hearing the evidence and the arguments pro and con, Judge Green decided that there was a lack of considera- tion on the part of the man who had sold such a horse but he regretted he could do nothing. Ashi wanted to know from His Honor what was to be done with a horse that wouldn’t move until and unless he felt like it. The Judge told him if he would make the horse a party defendant and come in on the equity side of the court a week from then, he would decree specific performance by the beast. Pickett informed the court that he would in the meantime apply to His Honor for an injunction to restrain himself from issuing such a decree and thereupon asked for the appointment of a guardian ad litem for the horse. 1 was privileged to witness the work of many of my old friends in the courts of the District of Columbia and in the majority of instances they were head and shoulders over the products of other schools. I was surprised to find Doug. Seeley engaged as Chief Reporter in the Supreme Court of the United States. I learned his tragic story from a mutual friend. He had practiced with marked success after leaving the National until one day in the District Supreme Court he failed to make Chief Justice Siddons see a point of law his way. Doug., in a burst of confidence, told the Chief Justice that his rulings were punk, that his dicta were incompetent, irrelevant and contrary to all learned opinion and that the Chief himself was immaterial. Some two years previous to this time a separate court for the hearing of divorce cases in the District had been established. It seemed that the Judges of the Supreme Court had been surfeited by this form of litigation and that in many instances pending cases had been so long delayed in the final settlement that the would-be future husbands and wives of the litigants were frequently bringing actions for breach of promise. Two male and two female judges and a chief justice constituted the new court and it was not strange that the two ladies to receive these important appointments should be alumnae of the Na- tional University. The female judges were Misses Catherine Myers and Con- stance Fogle. Judge Fogle, 1 was informed, was the favorite of wronged womanhood and many a former sheik had been reduced to abject poverty by her decrees of alimony. Litigants, especially those who evinced a willingness to slip off the yoke of matrimony, were stricken with chills when they found themselves before Judge Myers. It became known of her that the man or woman who was awarded at her hands a decree of divorce was all set for the golden crown. She never was known to award alimony on any considera- tion. Emily Steele, of whom members of the Class of ’27 must still entertain pleasant memories, was at this period chief of the women’s police bureau. Mrs. Van Winkle had joined the late lamented Rip in his slumbers so that Rip was no longer sleeping on his rights. Miss Steele had reorganized the women’s police department; in fact, she had practically recreated it. Under her indefatigable regime petting had become a lost art and necking had been moved on the calendar from a misdemeanor to a felony. I was told that on three summer evenings her forces had crammed every cell in every precinct in the city with petters and pettees, had confiscated 2,300 nondescript automobiles Page 174 and stricken terror into hearts whose only previous emotion had been love. Her aim was to stop marriage, “for,” she said, “if you stop marriage, you’ll ultimately stop divorce, and more than that, you’ll stop unthinking people from coming into this overcrowded world and finally, peace and good order will reign supreme.” Evelyn Jarvis, another of the women of my year, and one who was extremely well thought of by both the male and female ele- ments of our class, was, I found, engaged upon a strange work for so comely a lady. She had set her mind on the extermination of male lawyers. She had made several more or less successful attempts to induce law schools to close their doors against male applicants for admission, for, like Miss Steele, she wanted to nip the nuisance in the bud. But she did not stop at that, she went for he-lawyers with tooth and fang (literally speaking, of course), wherever she found them. I made a point to call upon her at her office in the Press Association Building with the idea of getting a slant on her strange behavior. She told me quite frankly that in her opinion men were no longer mentally capable of being really good lawyers. She had nothing personal against them, she said; so far as she was concerned, they were just a lot of plain noodles, or words to that effect. She told me she had talked to many of them in her time, more out of curiosity than in the hope of being entertained, and her experience had been that the average man ' s mentality could not be measured — there wasn’t enough of it there. Most of them, she said, were born idiots and the rest became idiots after they were born. Others of the old class whom I encountered in my wanderings around the District were William F. Martin, our Senior President, who had been appointed the previous year to a place on the Court of Claims bench; Adrian Merrill, who had gone back to Utah to practice and who was in Washington trying to get the Supreme Court of the United States to see his way in a matter upon which he and the Utah courts had failed to agree; Howie Young, who had absorbed all the sharp points in corporation law given the class by Attorney-General Percy Barse, and who as a result, was now president of the Farmers and Mechanics National Bank; Craig Reddish, who had unwittingly talked himself into a seat in the Senate after legislating the people of the state of Missouri, while in the state legislature, into a frame of mind to give him just about anything he asked them for. It was said that he intended to take up residence at the White House at some future date. When I asked him if that was his aim, he replied that it was and that it would only be necessary to get the majority of the states thinking about the proposition the same way that the state of Missouri thought. Craig never was downhearted about him- self. I found Elmer Erickson installed in the office of the Secretary of Agricul- ture. I asked him if he was really secretary, to which “Eric” replied with another question: “Did you ever know me to go after anything I didn’t get?” I met many others of the old brigade in the District, such as Roy Stock- man, who was making some fifty thousand dollars a year in the tax business; Charlie Gray, who was legal adviser to the Shipping Board which needed legal advice worse than any aggregation I have ever known; Warren Hamacher and John K. Russell who had developed an outstanding law firm; Edward Watson, chief clerk of the Supreme Court and others whom I am debarred by space from mentioning, but all of whom were showing the training they had re- ceived from the Alma Mater. Page 175 On extending my researches to the states I met National men every- where I went. Ben Thompson had already made his reputation on the bench in Georgia, Clem Robertson was practicing corporation law in New York and if you went to his office to say “Hello” to him it cost a small fortune in fees. In Oklahoma I found Joe Ingraham making the big oil interests eat out of his hand. As a specialist in that field of practice, Joe had outwitted, or at least out-argued everything that had come his way, and now it appeared that things were all coming his way. In Iowa I found Miss O’Rourke occupy- ing the office of district attorney in which capacity she was raging relentless warfare on guilty humanity. Another prominent member of the class whom I encountered on my western trip was Alan Pottinger, who had developed into one of the country’s foremost lecturers. He was then engaged in trying to convince the states that unless they immediately put a stop to the practice of sending their best men to the Senate and House in Washington, they would find themselves in a short time without state government or state rights. He had so far succeeded in his campaign as to have already caused three states to refuse to participate in the election of members to the national legislature. " Gus” Bonanno was still in Washington occupying the position of an unconsecrated bishop in the War Department. It was now his job to pick chaplains for the Army and so high were the spiritual qualifications of the men whom he chose to minister to the souls of the troops that the Army was fast becoming extinct. There was no need of an army, anyway, so it didn’t matter. Jerry Kaufman had realized his early ambition and was conducting a banking and loan business in Washington. He will be remembered best for his ability to extract money from the Class. He was now a keen financier as I learned by personal experience. 1 needed money one day to pay my office rent, to make up two or three back payments on my airplane and to meet a few other outstanding obligations, so I went to Kaufman’s bank. Oh. yes! Jerry was glad to see me and was willing to let me have all the money I needed. Five per cent was all he charged, which at first surprised me, till I remem- bered that back in the National days he hadn’t been so terribly hard to get away from, if you remained out of school. But I had not heard it all. In consideration of a loan of one thousand dollars, 1 was to give Jerry an abso- lute deed to everything I possessed or hoped to possess this side of the grave. He said he would reconvey my property if I ever paid him back, which he assured me was extremely unlikely. In further consideration of the loan, I was to pay him five per cent there and then, to be deducted from the amount advanced; then I was to pay the cashier five per cent when he o.k’d my note for the benefit of the paying teller, who in turn deducted another five per cent on paying me the money. The rule of this bank was further that one-half of the amount received by way of loan must be deposited there at 2 per cent interest as a sort of security for the monthly interest payments of the first year. At the end of that first year it would be necessary to get another loan to keep up the payments on the first, for which second advance further security must be forthcoming. I was told that Jerry was getting wealthy and I judged my informant to be a truthful man. I ran against many other instances of the splendid training of the Na- tional University Law ' School. Had some of my classmates lived in David Harum’s time, Dave’s exploits would have been inconsequential to say the least. Page 177 5 ' .’; . - , ' • ■ rngm .- . ;:? ; " «’C, . • ■ .;„• ' . .

Page 183 CLASS OF 1928 History of the Junior Class “Thoughts much too deep for tears pervade the court , When we assumpsit bring , and, godlike , waive the tort ’ HE fourth of October witnessed the opening of our second year in law school. It had in it none of the scrappy election spirit so evi- dent in the preceding year. The Class elections, held a week after school opened, were decidedly tame in contrast with the flame and explosion of those of 1925. Probably the elections of 1925 for this Class will go down in school history as the warmest on record. But this is not a chronicle of 1925, but rather of 1926-27. A most capable executive was chosen in Virgil Wallace, and also, what may be termed an excellent sup- porting cast. Their names and positions are set down elsewhere in THE DOCKET. Elections over, the Juniors settled down to business. During its Freshman year, 1928, as the Alvey Debating Society, distin- guished itself in forensic oratory. In the final tests, Frederick Hartung won a gold medal as the best speaker in the school. Equally important was the award to Mr. William F. Wiggins of the set of Corpus Juris in the 1926 Research Test. Classes under the best beloved members of the faculty began; the debat- ing society, now the Miller, started holding its meetings with our oratorical geniuses present as usual. The Junior Prom held on February 5, 1927, at Meridian Mansions, was an unqualified success, upwards of one hundred couples attending. A chronicle of the class activities would not be complete without paying tribute to Doctor Robert McCullough, that live-wire from Bladensburg and the North East Business Men ' s Association, who during the year was par- ticularly zealous in his application to the best interests of the class. It is primarily due to Dr. McCullough ' s diplomacy that much of the friction was dispelled and factional differences adjusted. We have come to the realization that the great test of our own Senior year is approaching and mindful of its burdens and responsibilities, we bid the present graduating class an affectionate farewell with the assurance that we will take up the task where they leave off and carry it along to an equally successful conclusion Eugene F.

PLANT ARMAND WILLIAM DE BIRNY President Class of ’29 Vice-President Class of ’29 rx D S popularity in his first year has extended far beyond the CD confines of his own class. As the executive of the largest Freshman Class ever enrolled in Na- tional University, he has by the ex- ercise of gentlemanly tact and diplo- macy proven beyond a doubt that his class made no mistake in their selec- tion. He is an active worker in all constructive school affairs, is a mem- ber of the National University Ma- sonic Club and the Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fraternity. R. DeBIRNY was born in At- lanta, Georgia, in 1898. He received his education at Har- risonburg, Virginia, and at Carnegie Tech, Pittsburgh, Pennsyl- vania. He is at present an investiga- tor for th e U. S. Veterans’ Bureau. He has been very active in school af- fairs, particularly in debating and making plans for the Freshman Prom. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. ALICE L. KELLY Secretary Class of ’29 DAVID LYNN, JR. T reasurer Class of ’29 HE smiling subject of this C sketch was somewhat reticent fN when asked for information of u a personal character but what Alice graduated from the graded schools and Eastern High Schools of Washington, then became private secretary to our esteemed Professor of Equity, Hayden Johnson. Since her advent in our midst she has been an active member of the Cy Pres Club. AVE is one of the boys who, upon occasion demonstrates the fact that his political training was received in that “holy of holies,” the United States Capital. He received his pre-legal work at Emerson Institute and George Washington University. He is an excellent student, a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon and Phi Beta Gamma (Legal) Fraternities. Page 194 SAMUEL LIGHTMAN Historian Class of ’29 R. LIGHTMAN was born Oc- tober 10, 1898, at Boston, Massachusetts. He received his graded and high school edu- cation in Philadelphia, Pa. From there he went to Bucknell Univer- sity, receiving his B.S.E. degree from that institution in 1918. He has ac- tively participated part in debating work, having taken first honors in an intersociety debate, from which fact he is eligible to participate in the Gold Medal debate in June. He was also elected President of the Alvey Debat- ing Society for the last half of the school year. ANGUS M. GREEN Editor Class of ' 29 H NGUS was the leader of the “Farm Bloc” during Fresh- man elections and it is worthy of note that his slate was one hundred per cent successful. It needs but a perusal of the array of the offi- cers of the class to form an abiding conviction that Angus knew merit when he saw it. He has been ex- ceedingly active in securing subscrip- tions to The Docket in the Fresh- man class and the staff now wishes to express their appreciation of his efforts. WILLIAM H. McGRATH Sergeant -at -Arms Class of ’29 ILL should be a Sergeant-at- Arms par excellence, for he is in the Metropolitan Police De- partment, assigned to the cor- poration counsel’s office at Police Court. He tells us he made plenty of noise in the World War and from our knowledge of him we are inclined to believe it. He took his pre-legal work at Columbia University and is a member of Delta Upsilon Frater- nity. Page 196 History of the Freshman Class N index to the size of the Freshman class is the fact that it takes Mr. Seeley six minutes to call the roll, for we number two hun- dred and six as of October 1st, 1926. When we get seated, you have a replica of the House of Representatives in session. Quite naturally so, for we have the “gentleman from Pennsylvania ' the “gentleman from Missouri” — in fact, we even have them from foreign countries. Concerning the fair sex, you would be surprised at the number of fair Portias in our class. The legal inspiration unquestionably came from the desire to emulate the Shakespearean prototype, who, we must confess, must have labored under a more difficult method of winning a case than her modern sister. For where, we ask, could Portia have compared with the modern student when she had no Corpus Juris to cite from, nor a course in Case Analysis to simplify it? Thus, we note a sign of progress. Fine fellowship permeates our class. We are all here for a purpose, but let us remember that friendships and pleasant memories for the future are essential ingredients of that purpose which we are now creating and making integral parts thereof. Samuel Lightman, Class Historian. The ISeophyte When one talks of hereditaments, misprisions, and indentures; Of chattels and of mortgages, of choses and debentures; Of assumpsit, debt, and covenant, of trespass and attainders; Of writs, of habeas corpus, of rever- sions and remainders; Of attaching and conveyancing, of signing and endorsing; Of femes, both sole and covert, sepa- rating and divorcing; Of words of twenty letters, which you’d think would break his jaw. You will then know that the fellow is just begun to study law.

Page 217 Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity O l N December 20, 1924, a group of students at the National University recognizing the need of a fraternity which would conform to their W A beliefs and associations, met to discuss and organize what was later to ““ become the Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity. At that meeting the name Alpha Beta Phi was chosen, and officers selected for the coming year as follows: Supreme Chancellor, Saul G. Lichtenberg; Chancellor, B. Robert Bodner; K. R. S., David H. Schatzow; Exchequer, Charles I. Kaplan; Chaplain, Reuben K. Millstein; Marshal, Sol Rothbard. The year 1925 marked the incorporation of Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fra- ternity in the District of Columbia as a National Fraternity. Preamble to the Constitution “We, students of the National University, in order to promote and further the social and fraternal associations among the students of this uni- versity, do establish this constitution of the Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity. ” Lewis D.

Millstein Benjamin Moss Nathan Needle Sol Rothbard David Saidman David H. Schatzow D. D’Orsay Sherman From the time of organization through the first year of its existence, the energies of the fraternity were devoted to laying the foundation. The close of each year since the time of organization sees the fraternity succeeding in its objective and with new members on its roster. Banquets held at the end of each year proved huge successes. This year finds the efforts of the charter members materializing, the organ- ization going strong with prospects for the future excellent. It also finds some of its members as members of the Bar of the District of Columbia, Maryland and New York. Respectfully submitted, Sol Rothbard, K. R. S. Approved: Lewis D. Cohen, Supreme Chancellor. Kappa Beta Pi mM APPA Beta Pi Legal Sorority was organized at Chicago Kent Law School in 1908 when women were still pioneers in the study of law. It is the oldest women ' s legal sorority in existence. Starting with one chap- ter it has now grown until there are thirty-seven active chapters in recognized law schools in the United States and one chapter in Canada. Omi- cron Chapter received its charter May 3, 1921. The chapter supports three scholarships in the University and finds time to discuss legal problems of inter- est to those working toward the goal of service. It is ready to help all women law students and to endorse any movement of interest to mankind and particularly to removing restrictions against women in the professions. Kappa Beta Pi numbers among its honorary members such women as Judge Katherine Sellers, of our own Juvenile Court; Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, Dean Emeritis of Washington College of Law; Honorable Florence E. Allen, Judge of the Supreme Court of Ohio: Helena Normanton, England’s first barrister-at-law; Madame Susanne Grinberg of Paris, Mrs. Burnita Sheldon Mathews and many others.

Organized for the pur- pose of promoting good fellowship among all students, more especially among Master Masons of the school. The club awards six scholar- ships to worthy, needy brothers. The success of the club is shown in its numerous social gatherings, the high-class standard of its fellows and in the fact that today it has close to one hundred and fifty active and honorary mem- bers. A banquet given by the club each year to the faculty has proven a decided success. W. A. Bastian L. A. Dent G. E. Edelin Bertrand Emerson, Jr. F. Juehoff Everett P. Haycraft John B. Keeler Henry C.

Young THE CY PRES CLUB The Cy Press Club Officers for 1926-1927 President Ann Webster Vice-President Lida L. Kendall Secretary Anne Leach T reasurer SONJA SASULY Reporter Elizabeth Prender Marshal Katherine Raedy HE Cy Pres Club is an organization of all the women students of the National University. The club’s purpose, as set forth in the constitution, is to “help its members advance in the study of law, and to promote good fellowship in the student body.’’ With these ends in view, an informal “get-together” luncheon is held on the first Thursday of each month at the Women’s University Club, 1634 Eye Street, and an annual is given on February 22nd of each year, when the club members and their friends dine and are addressed by persons distin- guished in the legal profession. In 1927 the Cy Pres Club was host to Mme Suzanne Grinberg, member of the French Bar; Mrs. Mabel Walker Willebrandt, Assistant United States Attorney-General, and members of the faculty. The regular business meetings of the club are on the first Tuesdays of the month, between classes, at 7:30 o’clock, in the women’s club room. THE PHILIPPINE CO LUMBIANS N October, 1924, a group of Filipino students at the National Uni- versity recognizing the need of keeping that traditional spirit of fellowship and comradeship, and “in order to cultivate a most cordial relation with our Alma Mater, to foster the advancement of knowledge in educational pursuit, fraternal ties and kinship, to attain respectable manhood and self-respect ' organized what is known on the campus as the Philippine Columbians, For the past three years the organ- ization has been very active, not only socially but also in other fields of activ- ity, thus keeping its spirit alive to conform with the provisions of the consti- tution. This year marked the greatest number of Filipino students in the Uni- versity, and thus the membership of the organization was increased. Students from both the Law School and the School of Economics and Government are admitted to become members of the organization. Many of the alumni-members of the Philippine Columbians who had returned to the Philippine Islands are now busily engaged in their respective professions which they acquired from the university. Their influence and their desire to be of service to the country are keenly felt by those with whom they come in contact. The organization is not only a great factor in cementing good fellowship and better understanding between American and Filipino students, but also a factor in bringing the National University well known among the Filipinos who come to the Capital City of the United States to seek higher education. The officers of the organization for the school year, 1926-1927, are as follows: ) Alfredo Samson President Manuel G. Zamora Vice-President JESUS Y. Perez Secretary -Treasurer Dr. Eugenio M. Fonbuena Counsellor CESARIO Farinas Historian ROSTER OF MEMBERSHIP Felix S. Bayaya Celso Ducosin Gregorio L. Fajardo Cesario Farinas Eugenio M. Fonbuena Bernardo Navarro Jesus Y.

Zamora DEBATING | HE Saturday evening debating forum has become the intellectual playground of the National University Law School, and the mem- bers of the Class of ’27 availed themselves enthusiastically of the diversion thus afforded them. This enthusiasm was heightened by the knowledge of the fact that nothing so rounds out the per- sonality of a lawyer as the ability to face the public and address them on topics of current interest. And whether it was the League of Nations, Prohibition, Labor Legislation, the Bok Peace Plan or Immigration the memb ers of the Class of ’27 entered into the fray vigorously and displayed marked ability in disposing of the subject under discussion. Many of us struggled valiantly against fear and embarrassment while others easily swept us off our feet with their facility of expression and their eloquence. But all of us profited and all of us will not soon forget those friendly, though spirited, verbal clashes. INTER-CLASS DEBATE First Term RESOLVED: That the Eighteenth Amendment Should Be Repealed.

Siddons Enigmatic Pendragon JOHN L. Cassin, Esq Tetrarch of Exchequer Godfrey L. Munter Burgrave of the Works “SCOTTY” Reliquary of Antiques and Custodian of Cuspidors NY volume which undertook to include within its compass a dissertation JjJ upon our Alma Mater would utterly fail in its purpose, whatsoever that might be, did it fail to give space and praise to the University r l vrm Museum, noted throughout the juridical world for the extent and magnificence of its collection of relics and antiques famous and notorious for their connection with the history of English and Civil Law. Collectors and antiquaries of highest repute unite in one voice to admit that the National University collection is nowhere surpassed, not even by the Louvre, the Bodelian, nor the British Museum. Visitors at National will find the Museum located in the Carusi Memorial Library Building, where it occupies the entire lower floor of that beautiful Gothic edifice. The outstanding objects are on display in individual exhibi- tion cases of plate glass and rosewood, and while no complete catalogue can here be undertaken, these objects which most excite the awe and veneration of the visitor are enumerated: The Original Scales of Justice — found in the recently opened tomb of King Tut. Moses ' Stone-cutter ' s Chisel identified by his thumb-print and certi- fied as the instrument used in the preparation of the original draft of the Ten Commandments. The Ink-pots of Solon and Lycurgus — from the original Munch- hausen Collection. Three Genuine Legs from the Roman Twelve Tables. Two Bronze Culverins from the Original Battery of the Canon Law. Along with these noted mementoes of the past there have been assem- bled objects of more recent interest which have played important parts in the glorious past of the university. Thus there is shown as still in the possession of the university the original Five Dollar Matriculation Fee paid by the first student in the remote days of 1869; a time-yellowed copy of the announce- ment of the First Faculty Banquet tendered the Graduating Class of 1882; also carefully preserved is the hatchet used by Judge Siddons upon that notor- ious occasion when he split an infinitive; a large number of Prof. Patterson ' s dropped “R’s” have been assembled for the edification of future contingents from North of the Mason and Dixon Line; also there is the still empty case reserved for Dean Putney ' s first perfect examination paper in Constitutional Law and finallv upon raised dais, upon an altar as ir were, is the author ' s own original of “The Little Green Book.” Thus ends the roll. So passes the visitor from the scholastic gloom of the Museum to the green beauty of the campus, his mind uplifted, exalted, realizing by these tokens to what heights his ambition may aspire.

The Lawyers 9 Ways I’ve been list’nin’ to them lawyers. In the courthouse up the street. An’ I’ve come to the conclusion That I ' m most completely beat. Fust one feller riz to argy, An’ he boldly waded in As he ’dressed the tremblin’ pris’ner In a coat o’ deep-dyed sin. Why, he painted him all over In a hue o’ blackest crime. An’ he smeared his reputation With the thickest kind o’ grime. Tell I found myself a-won’rin’. In a misty way and dim, How the Lord had come to fashion Sich an awful man as him. Then the other lawyer started, An’, with brimmin’, tearful eyes, Said his client was a martyr That was brought to sacrifice. An’ he give to that same pris’ner Every blessed human grace, Tell I saw the light o’ virtue Fairly shinin’ from his face. Then I owned ’at I was puzzled How sich things could rightly be; An’ this aggrevatin’ question Seems to keep a-puzzlin me. So, will some one please inform me, An’ this mystery unroll — How an angel an’ a devil Can persess the selfsame soul? Page 240 Shakespeare said: I was never so bethumped with words! When I began to study law I listened with a wild surmise — JEOFAILS and JEOPARDY Took me by surprise. I dimly heard the lecturing voice At the weary end of day, SOUS SEING PRIVE, FORMEDON, Stole my thoughts away. I sat in a great golden dream Through all the tedious hours, ASTRIHILTET, JAMUNDILINGI Bloomed in my brain like flowers. They’d ask me questions on the law. And never a word I ' d say, IDIOCHIRA, GARNISTURA Had taken my speech away. STIPULATIO SPONSALITIA — And others past belief — — Did I but know their meaning, I’d use them in a brief! —ESS. O ' ?

Dis heah’s a case ob stealin’ hogs — a mighty ser’ous ’fense — An’ you’ll know all about it, when I gibs my ebbydence. Dis Peter Jones, de plainter, is a member ob de chu ' ch, But Thomas Green, de ’fender, goodness known he’s nuffin, much; A lazy, triflin’ nigger is dat berry Thomas Green — Dese is de dif’rent parties you is called to jedge atween. Now gib me stric’ contention while I ’lucidates de fac’; Dere’s two whole sides to ebery’ing, — de front one an ' de back, — What’s dat de little lawyer say? To talk about de case? Dat’s jes what I wuz cornin’ to; you makes me lose de place. Whar wuz I? Oh! I ’members; I wuz jes about to say, I heered a disputation ’bout a p’int of law to-day; ’Bout how to turn State’s ebbydence — dat’s what dey’s a dribin’ at Now ain’t it strange some niggers is so ignorant as dat? Why, when you wants to turn it, you jes has to come to town, An’ fin’ de Deestric Turner — he’ll be somewhar loafin’ ’roun’ — An’ den sez you, “Mahsr Turner, sah, I zires my compl iments; I’s come in town to see you, fur to turn State’s ebbydence.” As soon’s you tells him dat, he knows perzacklly what you mean, An takes you to his office, whar he’s got a big mersheen, An dar you cotches hoi’ de crank, an’ den you turns away, Untel at las’ dar’s somefin’ clicks, an’ den you’s come to A. Is dat de letter ob de thing de feller done?” sez he; Ef you sez no, you turns ag’in untel you comes to B; An so you keeps a-turnin’, tell de right one gits aroun’, An dar de Deestric Turner looks, an’ dar de law is foun’. An den you gibs de fac’s, an’ den he reads the law to you, An’ he axes you to ’vise him what you t’ink he ought to do; An den he say “good-morning’,” an’ he gibs you fifty cents, An’ dat’s de way you has to do to turn State’s ebbydence. Well, gemmen ob de jury, dis heah case is understood. I doesn’t know de hog wuz stole, but Peter’s word is good. He up an’ sesso manfully, dout makin’ any bones; An’ darfore, sahs, ef I wuz you, I t’ink I’d ’cide for Jones. THE LAW STUDENT A forward youth just home from college, Where he was seeking legal knowledge, Anxious his wisdom to display His father thus addressed one day: “Now, father, here ' s an apple — see — Which I design to give to thee — But so that none thy claim dispute, And to despoil thee bring a suit, I’ll give it thee in legal way, As thus — to wit — that is to say, “I give you all and singular, Without encumbrance, let, or bar, My interest, title, and estate — Whether the same be small or great — My present right and claim, and all Advantage, whatsoe ' er befall, That apple in, for your own use, With all its seed, skin, pulp, and juice — With all advantage and all right. With power to sell, roast, cut, or bite — With power to eat or give away At any hour, night or day, In mouthfuls or in single gulp, With all its seed, skin, juice, and pulp. Anything published heretofore Or hereinafter, less or more, Or any instrument, deeds, or deed Made in the past or to succeed, Of what kind or nature countermanding To the contrary, notwithstanding. No man to cancel this need try — Now, father, how is that for high? " The puzzled sire scratched his head, Then, with a sigh, he slowly sa id: “I think, my bright son, that the law Is like a pickerel ' s head, all jaw. Now you may to the cellar go And split wood — how is that for law? " THE JUDGE’S CHARGE The judge’s charge was clear and plain, It meant his side the suit should gain; But hours he waited, and report The jury none made to the court. “Go, bring them in, and we will see What may their trivial problem be; Perhaps some technical word of art, Or else some juror oversmart. ” The bailiff went, filed in the array, The judge the silence broke to say, “A verdict, gentlemen, have you found?” The foreman spoke, and somewhat frowned, “Your Honor, we are eleven to one.” And tell me, pray, who may he be. Perhaps he does not clearly see The points the court made in its charge, I may repeat them more at large.” “No,” said the foreman, “naught can change Him in his fixed opinion strange; We’ve argued Jong, he takes a pride In arguing always on your side.” (Dedicated to Judge Willett.)

XW— — «- Watches, Diamonds, Jeivelry and Silverware The Advantages of a Quiz Course For Prospective Bar Examination Candidates The advantages of a quiz course are rather obvious. Such a review under proper guidance unifies the great mass of uncorrelated principles which the student has learned in a law school, as well as performing the more obvious function, the presentation in striking form of the fundamental principles of each branch of the law. It is possible for the student to review for the Bar Examination by himself just as it is possible to study law without attending law school. It is cer- tainly not the most effective method of review. FRANK S. SMITH. Herald Square Inn 1303 H STREET, N. W.

The United States Code Annotated is a permanent edition, always up to date, published in sixty or more handy-size volumes of an average of five hundred pages each. In the main, each title will be in a separate book, and all of the books of the set will be brought up to date each year by cumulative pocket supplements that fit in and becom e a part of each book. In addition to the annual pocket supplements pamph- let supplements will be issued three times a year, thus keeping the subscriber posted at all times as to the latest legislation and decisions of the courts. The value of an annotated statute is measured by the excel- lence of the editorial work, and the fact that the annotations to the United States Code Annotated are the product of the com- bined editorial forces of the Edward Thompson Company and the West Publishing Company with their more than twenty years’ experience in the annotating of the federal laws in the heretofore independently published sets, is a guaranty of the ex- cellence of the work in this set. Price, terms, and further particulars will be sent on request - EDWARD THOMPSON COMPANY Northport New York
