E salute the Class of 1928! To the Undergraduates, we extend a cordial greeting e have sought to preserve, in this volume, the associa- tions formed, the pleasures known, during the tedi- ous task of learning the fundamentals of the law. It is not without error, but it is our hope that The Docket, 1928, may prove to be a mirror into which you may look in an after- year and muse.

Rickles Assistant Treasurer Associate Editors Ada Miller Rhodes Eugene F. Bogan Herbert J. Krase Edward C. Moylan Dedication ' A the memory of 3)olpt Jltarsl]all, that uncommon man who presided for thirty-four years as Chief Justice of the United States, a statesman and a philosopher, and a man who, in all human probability, did more to chart the course of the American Judiciary than any other one indi- vidual, The Docket, 1928, is respectfully dedicated. The Board of Editors ohn Marshall, born in Virginia, September 24th, 1755, as a youn g man served with the American forces during the War for Independence. After the war he took an active part in solving the problems of the new country. V hen President John Adams appointed him Chief Justice of the United States, he was well qualified and fitted by education, training and experience to deal justly and intelligently with these problems. He was learned in the law, a clear thinker and fearless. His sound application of legal principles to the dis- putes and difficulties raised by the new order of things and presented to his court was of the greatest importance and value in establishing the Government on a sound and firm foundation. John Marshall’s judicial work and its effect on American jurisprudence can- not be too carefully and thoroughly studied. John G. Sargent The Docket, 1928, has the privilege to present above a state- ment concerning the life and works of John Marshall , prepared for it by the Nation ' s highest legal officer, The Attorney General of the United States. [ 8 ] John oJ Iarshall An Editorial Biography ' JJ n these modern days when the forensic art and the pen so often are turned to purposes of distorted ends or the furtherance of selfish plans, it is whole- some and refreshing to read again the lines that were produced by John Marshall. Whether those lines sprang from discussions of local or state or national matters, th ere was no confusing of issues, no appeal to emotions. It was perhaps because of his capacity for searching the very core of his problems that he served his country best as statesman and jurist for, be it said, his analysis was unerring, his logic incontrovertible ; his conviction lay deep and upon that foundation he budded a progressive and illuminating argument. We read that John Marshall was born in our neighboring State of Virginia, in Fauquier, or what is now Midland, County, on September 24, 1755, and he came from the stock of Col. Thomas Marshall, who, we may judge, bred into this eldest son the very career that he was to follow. Col. Marshall had served with distinction in the French War and in the War of Independence. The mother was Mary Ivieth, a member of the well-known Randolph family. So we may see that John Marshall had the stuff in him, and we know that his ancestral blood was not betrayed. We quote : “He made the Constitution live, he imparted to it a breath of immortality, and its vigorous life at the present hour is due mainly to the wise interpretation he gave to its provisions during his long term of office.” Comparisons are usually unsound in any record, but consider for a moment what the strength of the Constitution might now be, or not be, were Marshall to have been swayed or influenced by, or had he been responsive to certain noisy elements of public opinion. Is not America a better place to live in because of him? Certainly, Marshall was faced with the same problems, though perhaps not as complex, as are the jurists of our day; truly, one misstep would have thwarted the purposes that were, we suggest, divinely engendered in him. But he did not make that misstep. And to turn to the colloquial, John Marshall told Congress where to get off in a fashion that was unmistakable. Whatever changes, therefore, that were brought about came from the people themselves and not from those whose thirst for power and satisfaction of their own designs and desires propa- gated unsound movements. Thus we discover the dominant characteristics of this man to have been directness and simplicity. Throughout all of the histories of him, we find an entire absence of any tendency toward pomp and display. There was no air of [ 9 ] studied effect. He was tall and ungainly in appearance, even loose jointed, but there was an unfailing sense of humor which carried him over many trying times. And let it not be forgotten that in the heart of this man lay the deepest of respect for women and a reverence for religion. John Marshall served in Congress in 1898 and 1899 and, as elsewhere, he was a leader there. Then, he became Secretary of State and after a year of ser- vice was appointed Chief Justice. In 1831, Marshall’s usually robust body was struck by disease and though he recovered from several operations, his strength was gone never to return and he died in Philadelphia, July 6th, 1835. Then, as now, the passing of a great man was mourned. Then, as now, there were critics, prompted by uncertain and questionable motives, who lifted the shroud to besmirch a proud record. But now, as then, there are more who believe, than disbelieve, that John Marshall’s life and works will forever stand out as beacons of the sea of jurisprudence. lie was tall and ttf u unfailing sense of Nina r wdi ' -t n„t be forg,|«,. |l m «U served in Congress in en, he became Seer hi Justice.

Burdick Editor The Class of 1928 WALTER JAMES FAHEY June 20, 1897 — September 11, 1927 It is with a distinct sense of loss that we chronicle in the annals of our class the passing of Walter Fahey. He began with our class and continued as a good student and an active member more than two scholastic years. There were few who did not know him ; those who knew him say, in high tribute, that “he fitted in.” Walter was an asset to the Class of 1928, and its members revere his memory. AUGUSTUS S.

Wallace [ 127 ] History of the Class of 1928 “Not clinging to some ancient saw , Not mastered by some modern term , Not swift nor slow to change , but firm, And in its season bring the law ” (oM JLaving begun this resume of the events of the last three years with a very learned quotation, according to the best modern standard, with the intent (animo furandi) to impress the lay reader with the profound legal lore recently absorbed at a speed of seventeen dollars a month, we feel quite gratified. However, all poetry to the contrary, this business of retrospect is no cinch. Looking back through a perspective created by the lapse of a great period of time, to wit, the space of three years, we are faced with the problem of setting down on paper certain impressions gathered during such period, and to record the more important and interesting events taking place within such a space of time ; said impressions and records to be read by the legal lights now graduating from this University and their issue. It is well, therefore, to begin by dedicating these pages, through appropriate innuendo, and in a sound legal manner (by the use of words of “purchase”) “to the members of the Class of 1928 and their heirs forever.” With this formality over, there must be considered in some small measure at least, the multitude of conflicting thoughts and emotions present in the sweet young graduate’s mind. Probably the first of these is the fact that we, none of us, were ever known to National before entering the law school and that, once graduated we pass from an intimate association with and the knowledge of the University, just as the dead pass from the world. When the Class of 1928 is disbanded it ceases to exist save in the minds of those who composed it ; it bears no more relation to the University than the multitude of classes preceding it, and cuts no greater figure in the minds of future students at the University than the Class of 1900. The good fellowship feeling and student associations pass out of existence, although the warm friendships born during the past three years will endure throughout life. Many of us will never see one another again — and then, too, many of us will link up together, hereafter, socially or in a business way. Having decided that as to the University we become substantially corpus morte let us take up the next of the thoughts in the mind of our sweet young graduate. This is the matter of our outlook upon life as the result of perusing dusty law tomes, polishing hard chairs, and making new contacts over a period of three years. We are now at the threshold of the Bar. We have but reached the stage whereat it is possible to claim a faint, but an intelligent, apprehension of the law. During the years we have worked to secure this glimmering of knowledge we must confess, all of us, to a subtle change in our outlook upon the serious busi- ness of existence upon this earth. Those of us in our twenties may well say that the entire outlook on life has changed as a result of the study of the law. Those of us in our thirties may truthfully say that the outlook upon life from [ 129 ] that perspective has changed materially, if not entirely, and those past forty, taking counsel with themselves, must confess that the outlook upon life has changed in a substantial degree. And the latter can but regret that they failed to take up the study of the law at an earlier date. Having by the foregoing several paragraphs sought to still the turbulent emotions in the breast of the said sweet young graduate, let us take up the serious business of reporting the last three years. During a period of three years, 1928 was fortunate in the leadership of three very capable executives : George E. Burdick, elected after a series of young riots in the Lower Hall for our Freshman year ; Virgil Wallace, elected in a more gentlemanly manner as our guiding genius during our Junior year; and Robert W. McCullough elected after a substantial re-enactment of the Democratic con- vention of 1904, to lead us as Seniors. During our Freshman year, interest in social affairs was negligible, in short — non est factum. Rarely was it possible to secure more than a dozen of the Class at school functions (excepting Smokers, of course). We were too busy getting acquainted with our surroundings and books, possible — or possibly we just weren’t interested. However, while outside social events languished, those in the school itself were fostered by the organization of the Glee Club, which during its some- what ephemeral existence of two years did much to instill harmony in the hearts of hardworking, potential Daniel Websters. Another of the highly successful features of our first year was the conduct of the Alvey (Freshman) Debating Society. It was not good — it was perfect. Members of this society debating the upper-classmen on four occasions came out on top four times, and at the end of the year two of our Class, Frederick Hartung and John Flynn, were chosen as the best speakers in the University for the year 1926. We found, while plebeian freshmen, that reciting on one’s feet was a man’s jol) — pure and simple. Words cannot describe its exacting nature. Standing up attempting to answer intelligibly and intelligently (there is a distinction) sur- rounded by three hundred potential panners who at the slightest miscue will launch into a grand and glorious extension of what is vulgarly known (by others, not lawyers) as the razzberry, is a man’s job any place, let alone in a law school — where one is supposed to be very, very dignified and intelligent. Oh, well — “them days is gone forever.” While considering our Freshman year, it is only just that a few student ac- complishments he called to attention. For instance, Maurice Collins won the Eugene Carusi Gold Medal for the most satisfactory Freshman examination; Joel P. Moore won the Byrne prize for the best examination on Bills and Notes, and William F. Wiggins won a set of Corpus Juris for the best work in legal research. Virgil Wallace, George Zeutzius, Bert Derden, John Flynn and Frederick Hartung distinguished themselves in forensic oratory as members of the Alvey Societv. Certainly Robert McCullough deserves credit (credit — h-m-m-m ; Mr. Munter around?) for avoiding bloodshed in the silencing of certain discordant elements of the class. George Jackson Eder’s famous reply to one of Professor Munter’s questions (equally as famous as “Don’t give up the ship’’ — “I have just begun to fight,” etc.) “I wrote a book on the subject,” must not, of course, be over- looked. As Glenn Willett so sagely observed while presiding over the G-r-r-eat Moot Court, law students become great lawyers and attain vast personal importance about midway through, and until the end. of their first year at law. There is very little legal lore, in the Freshman mind, which has not been assimilated during the first [ 130 ] year. The Class of 1928 proved no exception to this rule. As George Burdick very pertinently remarked, and the truth cannot be denied, “a man knows more law during his Freshman year than at any time during his life.” When the Junior Year opened, and the great problems of real property and the adjective law presented themselves to the Junior gaze, the prevailing “great barrister " air of the average student was replaced by one radiating intelligent determination. The truth of the maxim “ignorantia lex neminem excusat” was forcibly impressed on the Junior mind by the examinations of December, 1926. Probably the high tide of our student efficiency was reached during the exam- inations of March, 1927, when Evidence and Common Law Pleading were passed by the great majority with ease. Elizabeth Prender not only took two 99’s in these subjects but took the class average prize and the Equity prize for the year. Abraham Ponack took the Real Property prize for the highest average in this subject. Socially our Junior year was far superior to our Freshman year. The Junior Prom, held on February 5, 1927, at Meridian Mansions, was an unqualified suc- cess, upwards of one hundred and twenty-five couples attending. To Virgil Wal- lace and Joseph Hooker, the latter chairman of the social committee, goes most of the credit for the success of the Prom and for other social events of the year. An innovation in the form of a dance in the school itself (new lower hall) sup- ported by popular contribution of the Junior Class was another of the outstand- ing events of the year. The Junior year also witnessed considerable success on the part of the de- bating element of our class. Three out of four of the interclass debates were won by “1928,” although only one Junior was chosen as the best speaker in anv one of these debates. The class score for two years was, therefore, seven vic- tories as against one defeat. Although our Junior year was a great success, it did not approach the heights we were to reach during our Senior year, from both a class room and a social standpoint. Coming now to our Senior year, which will perhaps, maintain a more lasting impression in our minds than either of the two preceding years. This year opened with a spirited election in which after a multitude of bal- lots Robert McCullough prevailed over Robert L. Hollowed, and was duly con- stitut ed President of the Senior Class. This year witnessed our introduction to the Gr-r-eat Moot Court, Mr. Justice Glenn Willett presiding. Before the hallowed bar of this tribunal, during the course of a year, many students condemned silently during the preceding two years as perfect dumb-bells, vindicated their intelligence by soundly thrashing, in case after case, students who had either seen fit to consider the mental standard of the former below the average, or who were rated during their first two years at law, as exceptionally intelligent students. Trial work opened with a bang and produced many sensations. All cases during the first term and for most of the second were brilliantly tried, considering the inexperience of counsel. Anomal- ously enough, however, towards the middle of the second term when it was judged that counsel should know “reasonably” well how to try a jury case, trial work became very lax — it, however, regained its stride and the last few cases wound up the law c urt sessions in a blaze of glory. Defense counsel in the majority of cases came out on top; there were two hung juries; two indictments thrown out after the trial had started ; two damage verdicts, and one conviction. As [ HI ] for the latter, Keith Mover, condemned as a “manslaughterer " is now serving a year and a day in Atlanta. One gentleman defendant, Virgil Wallace, was com- mitted to St. Elizabeth’s as criminally insane. However, both of these criminals will graduate with us. Many things happened in the Moot Court which we cannot report here — however, space must he given to tell the world that Frank Flynn suc- cessfully stood upon his client ' s constitutional rights, and as a result Bert Derden, Charley Irelan, and Rex Cushing received a good, in fact an excellent, lesson in grand larceny. We were fortunate in our Moot Court work in having the corpus delicti in murder trials established, even though Walter Delaney, in one case, identified his poor, dead, twin brother as follows: " He was my twin brother, and I knew him fairly well. " We were unfortunate in missing two trials because government counsel tried to “monkey " with common law indictments — much to their sorrow. One set of government counsel attempted to substitute a joy riding indictment for a grand larceny indictment. Calvin Knox, Golden Buck, Richard Mansfield. Kilroy Gun, Walter Savage, Alexander Jones, Max W oolstein and their friends are defendants who must look elsewhere for counsel, now that the legal luminaries of 1928 are passing on to higher fields of endeavor. We respectfully consign, devise and bequeath the above defendants to the Class of 1929 with the suggestion that they hang a couple, imprison one or two, send at least one to the insane asylum and " soak " the others roundly in damages. We respectfully admonish 1929 not to “monkey with com- mon law indictments " — also, we counsel them (for which advice no retainer is expected) not to hesitate to stand upon their clients’ constitutional rights, for as we have shown, Frank Flynn did it successfully, and others might as well do the same. As for social functions: University history was made by the Senior Prom, held in December, 1 l )27, at the Carlton Hotel, when upwards of 250 couples at- tended. Kenneth L’glow and Raymond Isaacs heading the social committee were the brains behind the Prom. Credit for support, however, must be given and is hereby extended to the Class of 1929 for its noble support. (Credit — h-m-m-mmm, page Mr. Munter.) The Cy Pres and Masonic Clubs’ banquets were the most successful in the history of these organizations. Credit for the success of the former goes to Stella Goodnight and Elizabeth Prender, and for the latter to Darrell Kttll and Robert L. Hollowell. “1928 " had little time, as Seniors, for debating. However, several ambitious Seniors organized the John Marshall Law Club, and using the (at this time) fa- mous Baumes law for a subject, swept successfully through a half dozen debates with various school and local organizations. These gentlemen carried forward the laurels 1928 had won during its first and second years in forensic oratory, and established, on a permanent basis, a new organization in the University. This organization is respectfully bequeathed to the " use of " the Class of 1929, its heirs and assigns, and particularly to Walter W. Bryan, who shall take as trus- tee, with the following precatory trusts: It is with the hope, wish and expecta- tion that this organization be perpetuated in the University for the purpose of removing the lead from the tongues of would-be lawyers. There appears but little left to consider other than a few loose ends, not heretofore in these pages tied up. Let’s begin on Wild Bill Bruckart, ye fiery Editor, who regularly during his Senior year paid his tuition and who just as regularly failed to enjoy the benefits thereof due to pressure of work upon this Annual. Admittedly, Bill is far from dead, mentally or physically, although it [ 132 ] is a concrete fact that his school work is — but while on the subject of Bill and concrete, let’s do a bit of quoting: “Si requiris monumentum circumspice” — If you seek his monument, look about you. But to close this History of the Class of 1928. Outside of the formal be- quests made from time to time on these pages to the Class of 1929, we wish to include a residuary clause. The Class of 1928 respectfully bequeaths and devises to the Class of 1929 all its remaining right, title and interest in and to the faculty, the Bar of the Great Moot Court, The Docket, the War College, and the privilege to pay tuition in monthly installments. We also, in finality, leave this hint as to practice in the Great Moot Court : “ Thought much too deep for tears pervade the court, When we assumpsit bring, and, Godlike, zvaive the tort.” Eugene F. Bogan. [ 133 ] Class of 1928 A GLIMPSE INTO THE FUTURE E don’t know where we’re going, but we’re on our way. Years may come and years may go but it will be many years before National University ever again graduates a class just like the Class of 1928. Why? For many reasons. As many reasons in fact as there are members of the Class. Let us peer into the future to ascertain the reasons for the world’s great ad- vancement from 1928 to 1943. In the legislatures of various states we see the faces of men and women we associated with in the good old days in National University and on the benches of the highest courts of some of the states we recognize who argued their first case in Judge Willett’s Moot Court. Some of the Federal district courts are also graced by judges who received their first training in the same moot court. We find also on the bench of the Supreme Court of the United States, a Judge Rickies who much resembles J. K. Rickies who once told Professor Munter that a man could not climb both sides of a fence at the same time. In spite of this assertion on Rickies’ part, however, we are surprised to learn that he was endorsed by the Democrats, appointed by a Republican President and unanimously confirmed by both the Democratic and Republican members of the United States Senate. Virgil P. Wallace is Governor of Arkansas. Rose H. McCabe was born in Danville, Illinois, and is out to beat Uncle Joe Cannon’s record for length of serv- ice as representative of her district in the halls of Congress. David Saidman and S. W. Feldman, born in Cherkasi, Russia, and Rofalovka, Russia, respectively, are prominent criminal lawyers and Mary J. C. Hickey sits on the bench of the Supreme Court of th e United States. To our amazement we see Edna L. Parker ensconced in a beautiful home in Athens, Ohio, as the wife of a prominent lawyer and it is said that she intends to enter the race for Governor of the State at the next election. Mrs. A. M. Webster is president of the organization known as the Republican Women of America. D. L. Gardner is Mayor of Oklahoma City, Oklahoma, hav- ing defeated Will Rogers at the polls by an overwhelming majority. Maurice Collins and Mary F. Holmes have hung out their shingles in Tupper Lake, New York, under the firm name of Holmes and Collins and have a wealthy clientele. Edward C. Moylan has returned to Waymart, Pennsylvania, and promises to over- turn the political machine of the county. J. P. Moore of Nashville, Arkansas, is in Washington, D. C., as one of the Senators from his State. Eugenio M. Fon- buena, born in Caba, Union, Philippine Islands, and Pedro P. Semsem, born in Porac, Philippine Islands, are both prominent lawyers of the said islands. William A. Creveling of the District of Columbia has become one of the greatest directors of grand opera the world has ever known. G. L Silhavy, horn in Antigo, Wis- consin, is Commissioner of Patents, and L. C. Sullivan of Washington, D. C., is president of the Washington American League baseball team. A. S. Brant, born [ 135 ] in Lawrenceville, Pennsylvania, has become a famous criminal lawyer, specializing on insanity cases, and N. E. Birch, who first saw the light of day and love in ashington, D. C., is head of the legal department of a well known packing house of Chicago, Illinois. M. P. McGrath was born at Fort Schuyler, New York, and has become one of the most popular Governors that state has ever had. Another famous Penn- sylvanian is Lloyd G. Haag of Robesonia, who, with James A. Sharkey of Pitts- ton, Pennsylvania, has about revolutionized the legal procedure of that state. West Virginia has attracted the attention of the political world as the result of the tactics of two of its native sons, Francis Thralls and J. Harrison Miller, at the Republican National Convention in 1940. Harold F. Gerard was born in New York but he moved to Bladensburg, Maryland, about 1921 and in 1942 he beat Dr. Robert McCullough for the mayoralty of that city by an overwhelming majority. Then there is Gamble Daniels, born in Clearwater, Kansas, who is said to be one of the cleanest politicians that state has ever produced. A. Ponac is District Attorney in Boston, Massachusetts, and the criminals of that city have all departed for warmer climes. A. Cohen of Boston, Massachusetts, and Henry S. Boynton of Sullivan, Maine, have made a specialty of patent law and their huge bank accounts ' are steadily growing. Stuart Edwin Burdick has become renowned as an expert on interstate commerce. Then there is John Gaskins of Norfolk, Virginia. When he left the National he took his Allegata and his Probata with him because his “Allegata is no good without his Probata, and his Probata without his Allegata is no better.” Although there may be a question as to whether a member of the bar, possess- ing feminine gender is eligible to grace the chair and wear the robes of a Chief Justice of the highest tribunal of our glorious land, yet, in this Class of 1928, there appears one who has challenged a long honored and revered custom. We introduce Elizabeth Kingsland Premier. Scanning the faculty list of National University Law School for 1942, we see that George Walter Smith, LL.B., LL.M., is instructor of criminal law, criminal law »nd procedure and negotiable instruments. Surprised? Not at all. If you had known him as a student of the graduating class of 1928, you might have won- dered why he ever needed to study these subjects. Ezra Monson was born out where the West begins and during his three years at National, he delighted in telling his adventures in the mercantile business. In 1940, we find him at the head of the greatest chain-store organization west of the Mississippi. Eugene Capibianca is Judge of Asbury Park, New Jersey. He is always right and the rest of the world is always wrong. Karl Keeler has applied the technicalities of civil engineering to law and the various angles from which he presents his case are most confusing to his oppo- nents. He is serving his second term as Senator from Utah. And there are so many others. I had a dream the other night. I dreamed that I attended a meeting in 1943 of the graduates of the Class of 1928 of National University Law School held in the banquet hall of the most excellent hotel in the world. The President of the United States sat in the place of honor. The toast- master was the Governor of a State. The Supreme Court of the United States was represented. There were cabinet members, senators, members of Congress, [ 136 ] members of state legislatures, mayors of cities, both large and small, and promi- nent members of the bar, both men and women. Many captains of finance and merchant princes also graced the tables. I sat in wonderment. A toast was drunk to each member of the faculty who had strived so hard to make the Class of 1928 the greatest law class of the ages. Tales and reminiscences of the good old days were bandied about which brought both joy and sadness. Old acquaintances were renewed and no enmity or bitter- ness appeared to exist although many present were adversaries in the business and political world. It was almost as good as a War College smoker. Then I woke up. Do dreams come true? Who knows? George E. Burdick, Class Editor. [ 137 1 Charles Lounsbury’s Will (The following document pronounced by lawyers and laymen alike to be the most remarkable will ever made by man was left as his last will and testament by Charles Lounsbury, who died insane in the Cook County Hospital, Dunning, 111. The Board of Editors presents it here because it is believed that, as the years roll on, there will be found in it an inspiration and a new love for humanity.) I, Charles Lounsbury, being of sound mind and disposing memory, do hereby make and publish this, my last will and testament, in order as justly as may be to distribute my interest in the world among succeeding men. That part of my interest which is known in law and recognized in the sheep- bound volumes as my property, being inconsiderable and of no account, I make no disposal of in this, my will. My right to life, being but a life estate, is not at my disposal, but these things excepted all else in the world I now proceed to devise and bequeath. Item — I give to the good fathers and mothers in trust for their children, all and every, the flowers of the fields, and the blossoms of the woods, with the right to play among them freely, according to the customs of children, warning them at the same time against thistles and thorns. And I devise to children the banks of the brooks and the golden sands beneath the waters thereof, and the odors of the willows that dip therein, and the white clouds that float high over the giant trees. And I leave the children the long, long days to be merry in, in a thousand ways, and the night and the moon and the train of the Milky Way to wonder at, but subject nevertheless to the rights hereinafter given to lovers. Item — I devise jointly all the useful ideals fields and commons where ball may be played; all pleasant waters where one may swim; all snow-clad hills where one may coast, and all streams and ponds where one may fish, or where, when grim winter comes, one may skate ; to have and to hold the same for the period of their boyhood. And all meadows with the clover blossoms and butterflies thereof, the woods and their appurtenances, the squirrels and birds and echoes and strange noises, and all distant places which may be visited, together with the ad- ventures there found. And I give to said boys each his own place at the fire- side at night, with all pictures that may be seen in the burning wood, to enjoy without let or hindrance and without any incumbrance of care. Item — To lovers, I devise their imaginary world, with whatever they may need ; as the stars of the sky, the red roses by the wall, the bloom of the hawthorn, the sweet strains of music, and aught else which they may desire to figure to each other the lastingness and beauty of their love. [ 139 ] Item — To young men jointly, I devise and bequeath all blisterous and inspir- ing sports of rivalry, and I give to them the disdain of weakness and undaunted confidence in their own strength, though they are rude. I give them the power to make lasting friendships, and of possessing companions, and to them exclusively I give all merry songs and brave choruses to sing with lusty voices. Item — And to those who are no longer children or youths or lovers, I leave memory, and I bequeath to them the volumes of the poems of Burns and Shake- speare and of other poets, if there be others, to the end that they may live over the old days again, freely and fully, without tithe or diminution. Item — To our loved ones with snowy crowns, I bequeath the happiness of old age, the love and gratitude of their children until they fall asleep.

DeBirny [ H9 ] The Class of 1929 History of the Class of 29 WO short years ago (it seems but that many days) a very ambitious crew of 270 serious minded men and women entered the doors of the National University to give it the once over and to take a course in law. They stepped boldly and bravely off to fill one great want — to become the best class of the school. They were a varied lot — big ones, little ones, as well as short and tall. East and West, North and South contributed to the energetic class in that laborious under- taking. On October 19, 1926, the class was called to order by Mr. Robert W. McCul- lough, President of the 1928 Class, and the following class officers were elected : Messrs. Ed. Plant and A. W. DeBirny as President and Vice-President, respec- tively, and Miss Alice L. Kelly was elected Secretary. Messrs. David Lynn was elected Treasurer; A. M. Green, Editor; Samuel Lightman, Historian; and W. H. McGrath, Sergeant-at-Arms. Peace and harmony prevailed between the class and its officers throughout the entire school year. The erosion of one year made many changes, and the opening of the second ap to our objective found several gaps that told the old, old story of the “also rans.” However, additions came to us and in the turnover, we managed to hold our own in number. We have not mastered the law as yet but we have at least become better acquainted with the subject. In the subjects of Contracts, Criminal Law, Nego- tiable Instruments and other freshman subjects we had the “fundamental princi- ples” expounded to us by a most worthy and capable corps of professors. An outstanding event in our freshman year, with a record breaking crowd, was the dance on April 23, 1927, held at the Mayflower Hotel, and everyone pres- snt reported as having a jolly good time. Another event of importance and one long to be remembered by “our gang” was the freshman smoker, which was attended by a large number of the student body as well as several members of the faculty. Our final examinations came with all their terror, but, as the class was pre- pared, time passed on, leaving only a few who had fallen by the wayside. It was with a long sigh of relief that a majority of the class laid away the buckram bind- ings for the summer while a large number, to wit : 40, kept steaming ahead at full speed through the summer months. Practically the same hard working freshmen met on September 30, 1927, who were after that date known as Juniors. On October 19, 1927, Mr. Plant called the class to order for the election of officers for the ensuing year. Mr. Norwood P. Cassidy was elected President, Mr. Jesse C. Byrd, Vice-President, and Miss Ella N. Jones, Secretary. Other class officers were: Messrs. William A. Porter, Treasurer; A. W. DeBirny, Editor; H. R. Harrison, Historian; John J. Collins, Orator, and Harry B. Milnor, Sergeant-at-Arms. We entered our Junior year zealous and full of confidence that law was not [ 151 ] so difficult after all. However, after the first few lectures in Common Law Plead- ing, Evidence and Equity, we discovered to our sorrow that the first year was only the first course listed on the menu of legal knowledge. The Junior Prom was held February 18, 1928, in the Hall of Nations at the Washington Hotel. Words cannot describe the event for only those who were present can have any adequate idea of just what a great and glorious afifair it was. Those present all agreed that it was the best time ever. Somewhat of its success can be gauged by the fact that although in former years Junior Proms have rarely cleared expenses, but ours not only gave us the best in every line, but a surplus of several dollars besides. To the committee belongs the principal credit for its arrangement and happy termination. Useless to say, but we are proud of our fair co-eds as they are making their mark and the men are beginning to feel their competition keenly. The ladies are very active in school affairs and the Cy Pres Club is an honor to the University. Several Clubs, Greek-letter Fraternities, etc., are very active, and have taken into their folds a goodly number of the class. The most important class activities are the Debating Societies. Mr. P. R. Baldridge as President and Miss F. R. Shugrue as Secretary, lead the Alvey Debating Society through the Freshman year to a very successful conclusion. The Miller Debating Society is composed of second and third year students and Mr. W. W. Bryan, President, with J. W. Harbin, Jr., as Secretary, report many interesting intersociety debates, and it is generally conceded that a very suc- cessful year has just ended. A few of the original members of the class have been compelled to abandon their studies but that diminution has, to a great extent been offset by other stu- dents, who realized, before it was too late, the advantages offered by the National University, and entered our class after completing the freshman subjects in some other institution of learning. Some of our members have gone in for romance and not aware of the many pitfalls about them, did not awaken or come to their sense until they had taken the final step and then it was “too late.” However, we know of no marriages between students, incidentally, a few have become proud fathers. Spinsters and bachelors, cheer up. Don’t feel discouraged for the worst is yet to come. “Where there is life there is hope.” Bear in mind the old adage: “Don’t worry about the future The present is all thou hast, The future will soon be present And the present will soon be past.” In the past two years we have worked hard, striven faithfully and honorably. A small measure of success has already been ours, and we feel that we may do honor to old National in the last school year that we will enjoy and, later, in the practice of law. We are sincerely and highly appreciative of the earnest and com- petent efforts of the Faculty. They have been patient where patience was needed and stern where sternness was required, and humorous where humor helped to lighten the burden of our technical studies. Prof. Willet is ready at all times to assist students in their class recitations. Prof. Godfrev L. Munter is one of the most popular members of the faculty, who [ 152 ] often explains the point in question by telling of personal experiences in his actual practice. Mr. Justice Siddons is a lso popular, even though he makes the student feel like two cents by saying, “Ah ! My young man, the reason for the rule is what you should be able to state clearly.” There is also Professor Barse, who, on reaching the rostrum, says, “Good evening, everybody.” Prof. Roger O’Donnell made good his assertion that “damn fool” questions would not be tolerated. How- ever, we know that he was our best friend, always willing to assist the earnest student. He would go out of his way to help the class over difficult obstacles, and this statement is backed up by the fact that a two hour lecture was given on Sunday, March 11, 1928, relative to the subject of Common Law Pleading. We appreciate the many stories Professor Patterson told in the class of Tiffany on Real Property. The outstanding illustration was relative to the law of fixtures and was well told in connection with John Doe and Richard Roe who used to meet at the little two-by-four store at the cross roads “down in Virginia,” to have their Saturday evening gossip about everything in general, and law in par- ticular. In their discussion a question arose as to whether or not fixtures may be removed by a tenant, in case the fixtures have been nailed down. Richard, in his wisdom of the law, said, “John, don’t you nail ’er down, ’cause if you do, the law is ag’in ye.” Another milestone is now behind us and all in all it has been a great year, and one of which we may well be proud. The officers of the class have given it as efficient an administration as the most captious could demand, and between them and the class, entire harmony has prevailed. Two years we have put be- hind us — may the third be as full of pleasure and successful labor. We face the future, confident that our greatness lies as yet before us. H. R. Harrison.

You’ll admit, when you know us better, that we were quite different. ’Tis true, we came from all points of the globe, like liquids settling to form a solid ; a mixture of different nationalities, we were, a mixture of races, customs, creeds ; a mixture of the walks of life, from a cab-driver up or down, as you like, almost to the portals of Congress. Getting acquainted was our first big job and we tackled it with vigor by having a class election which promoted acquaintance. For we, the Class of 1930, were the largest that ever entered National and we know that much depends upon us. We wanted, therefore, and we have obtained a solidarity, and strong ties, of friendship. It merely demonstrates the latent power. Just consider that within our first year we have already staged two inter-society debates, a theater party and a class dance. And that’s not so bad, what with six nights of lectures and seven nights of study to help us pass the time away. We ought, before this statement of our case is concluded, lay claim to an out- standing accomplishment. And we do claim that never before has a class so large been molded so quickly into a working model and an asset to the school. Our class has accepted the situation philosophically. None of us but that is aware that we enrolled in an institution that is rich in the reflected glory of suc- cessful men and women who have gone forth from its venerable halls ; each real- izes that there is lacking in National many of those little things which constitute college life but, though regretting their absence, our class is prepared to make its tenure worth while. We would not trade places. We will do our stuff where we are. Garland E. Taylor, Historian. [ 163 ] Standing Committees, the Class of 1930 SOCIAL H. C. Beavers, Chairman L. K. Elliott FINANCE S. T.

We marvel, now we look behind; Life’s more amusing than we thought. — Andrew Lang, Ballade of Middle Age. (dD Erhaps the most visionary member of that group of fourteen men of the classes of 1903 and 1904 when they laid well and true the foundation of Sigma Nu Phi did not anticipate the renown their embryonic efforts were destined to bring upon their Alma Mater. This renown reflects the uniformly successful accomplishment of the lofty aims of the Fraternity — the promotion of the well- being of students and practitioners of the law and the cultivation of the ethics of the profession, based upon the tenets of the ancient Order of the Coif. Celebrating its Silver Jubilee, this year, the Fraternity has commemorated its birth by the emplacement of a handsome bronze tablet unveiled in the upper hall on its twenty-fifth anniversary, February 12, 1928. While the real work of organizing the Fraternity was commenced in the fall of 1902, it was on February 12, 1903, that articles of incorporation were issued to the fourteen founders, Sidney F. Smith, H. H. Allen, James Bailey, James M. Britt, Charles F. Carusi, Eugene Carusi, Arthur L. Fill, C. G. Heylmun, Louis G. Julihn, Oliver S. Metzerott, Raymond W. Moulton, Fred F. Reisner, E. Richard Shipp, and George L. Whittaker. These men were also the charter members of the parent Joseph H. Choate Chapter — the outstanding Chapter of the Fraternity and of the National Law School today. With the affiliation of Chapters in other universities, the Fraternity assumed the national character contemplated by the founders. This position can best be attested by the fact that eight of the ten Lord High Chancellors (national Presidents) chosen from alumni of the chapters in univer- sities throughout the country and Canada, have been graduates of National Uni- versity and members of Choate Chapter. These men, who have thus brought dis- tinction to the school, the Chapter, and the Fraternity, are Sidney F. Smith, class of 1903; James Archibald Bailey, class of 1903; Ralph E. Day, class of 1915; William Wolff Smith, class of 1916; Jarvis Butler, class of 1911 ; Edward S. Bra- shears, class of 1916; David D. Caldwell, class of 1904; and Charles D. Hamel, class of 1905, the present Lord High Chancellor. An evidence of the position of Sigma Nu Phi in the family of national law [ 169 ] OFFICERS, 27-28 fraternities is found in the response of the legal fraternities to its proposal of an association of Law Fraternities for co-ordinating and advancing the work of all, which resulted in the establishment in 1923 of the Conference of Law Fraternities, of which Major Jarvis Butler, National University, 1911 (Choate Chapter), is President. The suc cess of this association has led the Law Fraternities in turn to sponsor the recent establishment of The Professional Interfraternity Conference in which Choate Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi, and National University have been further hon- ored by the election of Major Butler as the first President. Celebrating the Fraternity’s 25th birthday February 12, 1928, chapters throughout the country observed the anniversary generally with appropriate cere- monies. Choate Chapter, however, had a dual interest, recognizing its own natal day as well as that of the national organization. The Chapter therefore took a lead- ing part in the local Anniversary Dinner held at the Carlton Hotel February 11th, when Dean William Augus Hamilton of William and Mary College was the prin- cipal speaker, delivering an address on the little appreciated work of Charles Vine, the first professor of Law in the English-speaking world and the pro-genitor of Blackstone. On Sunday afternoon, February 12th, the memorial tablet was unveiled in the Law School by little Miss Gail Koss, granddaughter of Sidney F. Smith, first Chancellor of Choate Chapter and first Lord High Chancellor of the Fraternity, who was present as an honored guest. The presentation of the tablet was made by Hon. Charles D. Hamel, Lord High Chancellor, and accepted on behalf of the University by Dean Charles Pergler. The principal address was delivered by the Fraternity’s beloved friend and brother, Hon. Frederick L. Siddons. His talk on this occasion was based on the importance and value of the fundamental fraternity theme of confidence and trust in all walks of life. The Fraternity today has nineteen active undergraduate and eight alumni chapters, with a membership of approximately 2500 men in all parts of the world. f 171 | 5ICMA NU PHI FRATERNITY JOSEPH H.CHQATEIALPHA1 CHAPTER 5IGMA NU PHI FRATERNITY JD5EPH H.CHDATEIALFHA] CHAPTER X v tin (Phi c Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity ( Beta Chapter) E, the brethren of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, in order to establish and perpetuate a union of brotherly love dedicated to mutual helpfulness, service and fraternalism, aiming to develop and stimulate a respect for the law of the land and learning in its various branches, to promote zeal and ambition in its study, to maintain the high standards of the American Bar, and for the ad- vancement of the highest ideals of ethical and professional honor, do ordain and adopt this constitution as the supreme law of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity.

It is not only the oldest woman’s legal sorority in existence, but its progressive and earnest endeavors have enabled it to become one of international scope and influence. At the present time there are thirty- eight student, and six alumnae, chapters in recognized law schools in the United States, one chapter in Canada, and one in Paris, France. Kappa Beta Pi is the first fraternal organization, general or professional, to install a chapter on the European continent. Omicron Chapter was chartered May 3, 1921, during the period when women students were striving for recognition in National University Law School. It has steadily progressed towards its goal of service and fellowship with the increase of women students in the school. The chapter supports three scholarships in the University, and finds time to discuss legal problems of interest 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. While the primary purpose of the sorority is the furtherance of its members’ interests in the field of law, it includes among its activities many happy occasions of social enjoyment. Kappa Beta Pi numbers among its honorary members such women as Judge Katherine Sellers, of our own Juvenile Court; Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean enteritis, Washington College of Law; Judge Florence E. Allen, of the Supreme Court of Ohio; Helena Normanton, England’s first barrister; Mme. Susanne Grinberg, of Paris, and Mrs. Burnita Sheldon Mathews and many others. Edwina A.

Hughes Secretary Ada Miller Rhodes Evelyn M. Lang Treasurer Sergcant-at-Arms (oS) ' — — she is 8 years old — a rather spritely and distinguished child for her tender years, a child of more than average capabilities, manifesting her zealousness and interest in a degree that is not questioned. You ask her namet The Cy Pres Club of National University. Back in October, 1919, when National University had succeeded in sufficiently moulding opinion among its faculty and student body to preponderate to the degree of winning sanction for the admission of women, this child first drew the breath of life, with the Dean and faculty as her GUARDIANS AD LITEM, and the four women students of the school as her parents. So few in number, these first women students, who sought to acquire their legal education at National University, quite naturally felt a loneliness, a detachment, from the ranks of the hundreds of men who poured through the halls and assembly rooms. Conceiving the idea that in union there is strength, they banded themselves together, and, inasmuch as their organization plans followed immediately upon an able lecture on the praiseworthy equitable doctrine, “Cy Pres,” delivered by Professor Hayden Johnson, the women agreed that a name more marked in sub- stance and individuality than the “Cy Pres Club” could not be found. With each succeeding year, as the women have enrolled, they have automatically been made an integral part of this child’s life. This eighth year finds more than 40 women now in active studentship as members of the Club. An outstanding annual feature of the Club is its George Washington ' s Birth- day banquet, this date being elected particularly because it is that on which we pay tribute to him who nationally outstands all Americans. Last year, as President of the Club, Mrs. Ann Webster introduced the idea of a monthly luncheon at the University Club, at which the Cy Pres women might get together for social contact and relaxation, and the women students find delight in this monthly get-together. Miss Stella Goodnight, President for this year, and her assisting officers this year conceived the idea of endeavoring to raise a fund which can be kept available for the purpose of yearly assisting some woman, ambitious to study law, and whose apportionment of this world’s goods is too meager to permit of her indulging her ambition. With this in view, a Keith’s Theatre party was held some weeks ago, and the net proceeds of this party will be dedicated as a nucleus for this fund, which it is hoped will annually increase through the persistent efforts of the devotees of the Cy Pres Club.

Kelly, Jr., Secretary George W. Smith, Chaplain Rauley R. Baum, Treasurer Frank A. Surine, Herald Joseph A. Williams, Master-at-Arms W) A y N December 3, 1920, a group of twenty-one Master Masons, students of National University Law School, conceived the idea of promoting a closer relationship and closer associations within the student body and more espe- cially among Master Masons. To carry out their purpose this group organized on that day, the National University Masonic Club; which club has continued to grow and prosper until today it numbers one hundred and sixty active members together with twenty-seven Honorary members composed mostly of Professors of the Fac- ulty who are Masons. The club has active charge of awarding Scholarships which are known as the “National University Masonic Club Scholarship” to worthy Master Masons desiring to pursue a course in the study of Law but financially unable to do so. This fraternal work is made possible by the keen interest shown and assistance given by the Dean of our School, Dean Carusei, who is a member of the club. The club lias had a very successful year and its membership has been substantially increased. The meetings have been well attended and commit- tee work has been of a high standard. The year started with the election of officers, the Vice-President of the Club, Brother McCullough was nominated for the office of President without opposition, but declined to accept this honor on account of having been elected President of the Senior Class. The club proceeded to election and Brother Kull was unanimously elected President. This honor was well earned as there is no one who has done better work nor given more time to our club’s welfare than Brother Kull during his entire three years at school. The progress of our Club, this year, shows that the confidence placed in our new President was well founded. Brother R. M. Kellahin was elected vice-president; Wm. F. Kelley, Jr., secretary; Rauley R. Baum, Treasurer; Frank A. Surine, Herald; Joseph A. Williams, Master at Arms, and George Smith, past president of the Club, Chaplain. The Annual Banquet was held at the Hamilton Hotel under the able chairmanship of Brother R. L. Hollowed, who also acted as toastmaster. The affair was well attended and was an honor to the Club and school. A prize of ten dollars in gold donated by one of the members to the one bringing in the most new members was awarded to Brother Simons, one of our new members who has been an outstanding worker in all the club’s ac- tivities this year and who is one of our scholarship men. Brother John A. Campbell continues to do his good work in his quiet way, helping the Club this time by donating a number of books to our Schol- arship Library. If we had more graduate members as active as Brother Campbell, our Club would be known the world over for its great work. [ 188 ] Q yiembership Roll W. A. Bast ain Turin B. Boone Charles F. Carusi L.

Our number is not large, but it is continuing. It has been our endeavor to take our place among the students of National University with one thought upper- most in our minds : the promotion of a better understanding and friendship with the student body. In this, we feel that this year marks progress. But there is more to be accomplished, and we have directed our course accordingly. Earlier years have witness ed the departure from this university of many Filipino graduates. They are making good ! they are showing that the training they received did not fall on barren soil. Not only are the Philippine Columbians, but the university is proud of the success. And each of those has carried to his people the program of better understanding which we cherish. As in other years, there will be degrees awarded this year to some of otir mem- bership who have patiently burned the midnight oil through the requisite three years. To them, we say. Godspeed and good luck! They also will prove of value to the country of their birth.

In its inception, it was devoted entirely to matters of personal interest to the student body and in no way suggested the dignified future in store for it. As it assumed a more serious aspect, however, the University saw fit to spon- sor the publication, and about five y ears ago, the National University Law Review appeared for the first time under faculty supervision. Since that time, it has placed itself on a plane with the best law reviews of the country and in some respects has excelled its rival publications. The present scheme of The Review provides for the periodical publication of reports of the several government tribunals including the Court of Claims of the United States, the Court of Customs Appeals, the Supreme Court of the United States ; accounts of actions of various departments of the government, and discus- sions of the various involved phases of practice before such agencies as the Patent Office or the Interstate Commerce Commission. Contributors to The Review range from undergraduates in the student body to the greatest minds practicing before the highest courts, writers of international name and fame. Recent contributors have been writers and lecturers such as former Senator James Hamilton Lewis, of Illinois, Dr. Albert H. Putney, both of whom are known as authorities on the Constitution of the United States ; Charles Pergler, an authority on international law and former Czecho-Slovakian Minister to Japan; Charles F.

An indelible record of our years in National University has been de- signed, developed, financed, finished. The task has been difficult, even arduous. Yet, to me, it has not been without its compensation, for I can say without equivocation that few editors have had the faithful co-operation that has been mine in the production of a college year book. It is in most grateful appreciation, then, that I publicly extend to my staff assistants, and to our Class President, Dr. McCullough, my sincere thanks for their loyal support, and to say that I owe a debt of gratitude also to Miss Lida Loyola Kendall, whose art work adorns many pages of this volume. [ 204 ] ILLEGAL WIT AND HUMOR WITH EXCEPTIONS [ 205 ] THE DOCKET 192 C Rational University Scandals of 1928 ! ! ijj T seems utterly impossible. It is impossible to believe. The whole student body is whispering the story around. Why the school permits such to develop right under the nose of the Dean — well, it’s just too bad. The papers have the whole story, too, but I guess that “influence” is keeping it out. It will leak out, though, because it’s true. It’s true by the weight of authority. Here, every one of us had grown very fond that man. He was always such a gentleman, such a fine character in school. Never too busy to help one solve a legal puzzle; always eager, even anxious, to do more than he really was obligated to do. I always felt that I could hardly repay him for the efforts he put forth. Now, it’s come to this. Isn’t it sad? But it’s true. So many men get mixed up in that sort of thing! And why do they? Don’t they ever think of their families? Think of the blot they place on the names of innocent women and children. He should have known he would get his fingers burned. Crime will out, you know. But his poor wife! She’s the one that has to suffer for it all. Poor thing! That man had a good law practice, too, a good law practice. He had hundreds of friends. I simply can not understand why he took up with that woman. He knew all the time what sort of a woman she was ; he knew her gang, too, especially those two who used aliases so much. I guess they’ve got him, now. Why, I ask you, do men do such things? Those of us who sat under the spell of that man’s voice, listened to his splendid lectures, we could never have expected such a thing. Don’t you re- call how he regretted that he had no third year subjects assigned to him. He said he was really sorry our class was passing to the third year. And we were very, very sorry, too. We believed him. But now . Oh! You haven’t heard it? Well, Professor Patterson has got mixed up in a terrible mess, one of those eternal triangles. Only there are four this time.

[ 208 ] Legal Profundities of The Gr-r-eat Moot Court (Reported by E. F. Bogan) Mr. Justice Willett: But you have no such allegation. Student District Attorney Irelan : Your Honor, is it necessary to allegate that ? The Court : Under the circumstances, I find it necessary to overrule your motion to quash and the case must go to trial on the indictment. Defense Counsel Bogan : Thank you ! Frank Flynn: May it please the Court, I stand on my client’s constitutional rights. When The Court Grows Humorous Mr. Justice Willett: Have you any law on the subject, Gentlemen? I must confess, I am ignorant. Plaintiff’s Counsel: None, Your Honor. Defendant’s Counsel : I am as ignorant as the Court. So the hearing was postponed. Student Counsel Extraordinary (Cross-examining, in a very gruff voice) : Let’s see, your name is John Smith, ain’t it? Mondell (In an argument with Hizonor) : Medical hooks say you can get simply pie-eyed on just three drinks. Yet the Court sustained an objection. Zeutzius (After making several suggestions to his witness on the stand, said witness having forgotten her lines) : Your Honor, this witness is still very nervous from her experience and can’t remember so well. The Court: Better tell the jury about that; I’m not much concerned. Case of Getmore v. Keepers. Plaintiff testified her residence was apartment 395 ; neghbor testified it was apartment 396 ; husband testified it was apartment 798, and the doctor testified it was 397, and we ask: Really was it in the jurisdic- tion of the Court? We regret to report that the procedure in the courts of National Uni- versity is so lax that one Alexander Jones was held in jail without bail or a hearing for two months on a charge of that heinous offense, spitting on the side- walk, and was not released until his attorneys, Krase, Bruckart and McCullough, completed Dr. Putney’s course in Extraordinary Legal Remedies and learned how to sue out a writ of habeas corpus. Of course, the circumstances are somewhat mitigated by the fact that his attorneys were not aware of the nature of the writ and, further, for the reason that this archcriminal was not prudent enough to await the acquisition of knowledge of the character described by the learned counsel before indulging in such promiscuous expectoration. When last seen, said Alexander Jones was in company of a portable brass cuspidor, for he will have to meet other counsel next year. [ 209 ] i } 14 7 R. Justice Willett, who admits to having sat on the bench of the Moot Court of National University two nights a week through the past nine years, has from time to time encountered some unusual situations. But with the patience of a Job, he has borne up quite well, thank you, and still can smile. And it may be added that some of the methods employed, or attempted to be employed, are provocative of smiles. For instance, the following: Student Counsel No. 1 filed a declaration alleging certain facts. The declara- tion was demurred to by Student Counsel No. 2, and No. 1 filed a replication to the demurrer of No. 2. But No. 2, not wishing to be outdone in twisting that holy of holies, common law pleading, promptly filed a motion for judgment in answer to the replication. And the following is proof of Justice Willett’s patience: he straightened out this weird set of pleadings and allowed argument on the demurrer to proceed. “Marshal” Bert Derden (although he is counsel in a case and is seated at the trial table) : “ORDER IN THE COURT !” R. B. Rutledge was the “Coroner.” He testified that he had performed a certain autopsy at the Emergency Hospital. Then : R. L. Hollowed (examining witness) : Mr. Nevitt, (Rutledge) where is Emergency Hospital located? The Coroner-witness : Lemme see. It’s on E Street. No. It’s on New York Avenue. Or, — R. L. Hollowed : As a matter of fact you don’t know where the hospital is, do you ? The Coroner-witness : I guess you’re right. Mrs. Webster (on the stand as the prosecuting witness) : That man — . That man — . That man — . Mondell (examining a witness in Getmore v. Capers) : Dr. Getmore — . Pardon me. Dr. Pettibone — . Pardon me. Dr. Getmore, you saw Mr. Getmore — . And so on ad infinitum. Counsellor Derden had just finished an impassioned flight of oratory in support of his demurrer. Gilbert Friend (arising, gravely) : I trust I can convince my young friend here — Judge Willett (interrupting): Oh! No, no. You needn’t bother about convincing him. Just convince me. That’s ad that is necessary in this Court. And so, Classmates, the docket of the Moot Court of National University is cleared of pending cases. May the record of proceedings here set out recall to each one the nights of genuine pleasure and profit under the jurisdiction of Justice Glenn Willett.

[211 ] “We” and the War College Smoker (Scene: Professor Bdclin’s Class in Statutory Remedies ) Doc. McCullough addresses the Class : “Ladies and gentlemen, it has come to my attention that the class does not know what’s going on. We are going to hold a smoker, the annual smoker, I mean. It is always done under the manage- ment of the Seniors. “Now, there’s a sign down in the hall about another smoker. We don’t know anything about that smoker for our smoker tickets are red, r-e-d. The other tickets are yellow, and I just wanted you to know that we are giving the smoker.” George Snyder takes the floor: “It ain’t so, what’s been said. We are giv- ing this smoker. Don’t be fooled. We are going to have a real smoker and give the profits to the Year Book.” Doc. McCullough again: “We don’t know anything about this other smoker. You’d better he on the safe side and buy the red tickets. It’s to help the Year Book.” George Snyder, up for the second time: “We won’t stand for this. Our smoker is incorporated. We can sue in court ” Referee Edelin, with a long count, stopped the bout at this point and pro- posed that the tickets be white, that the ladies be invited, and that the hour of the smoker be 4 P. M. on a pleasant Sunday. By Our Court Reporter. [212 ] “May It Please the Court ■ Our Sunday " School Lesson An assault is an attempted or incohate battery. A battery is a completed assault.

[ 215 ] THE D One of National’s Athletic Teams THE NEW ALPHABET Prof. Strasburger: It might not be so easy to figure out, however, if the property were to go, say, from A to B, B to C, C to D, and so on by twenty or thirty conveyances until it had reached M. [ 216 ] (Peace Be With You That member of the faculty so generally beloved and admired, Professor Glenn Willett, one evening after having learnedly discoursed on various crimes which were known as crimes against the public peace, decided to de- termine with what degree of understanding the student body had grasped the nature of this specific type of crime. So he queried Mr. Rickies. “Will you tell the class just what is this PEACE, the disruption of which we have found to be an ingredient of the crimes discussed this evening?” he asked. Stammering, faltering, Mr. Rickies was not quite sure just what w r as the meaning of “Peace”. So Professor Willett continued on down the roll, calling on a number of Mr.’s, Misses, and Mrs., until he perhaps had utilized some 20 names, before Peace w r as satisfactorily elucidated. To be sure the students knew that this and that crime constituted a oreach of the peace, but heavens above ! what an ordeal it was for the Pro- fessor to get a legal explanation of PEACE. Could it be wondered at if Pro- fessor Willett knew “no peace” that evening, for even one of his acknowl- edged teaching patience would necessarily have been torn to “pieces” from such an experience. Strange, isn’t it, how we think we understand a thing but when put to the test of explaining just what we do understand, we find our- selves “shot to pieces?” E. K. P. [ 217 ] THE SEAT OF THE LAW Prof. Munter: Now Mr. Flynn — this is Frank Flynn, isn’t it? — Mr. Flynn, what do they mean, as we read so often in old English cases, that Lord So-and-So was “sitting on the wool sack?” Mr. Flynn : I guess they just happened to have a wool sack handy. Prof. Munter: Oh! No, Mr. Flynn. Oh! No. Why, what must have hap- pened when Lord So-and-So was “sitting on the Queen’s Bench?” And this was in the Practice Class. OMIGOSH ! The Downright Honorable Justice William Clark Taylor, who presides over the Probate Bench of the Moot Court of this University, has another tale to pass on to posterity. While questioning young Mr. Rasnek as to the procedure the latter indi- vidual was to follow in defending a will, the validity of which was in issue, this young hopeful blithely informed Justice Tavlor that he would file a bill for caveat emptor. Justice Taylor: “What are you going to do with the emptor?” [ 218 ] ANENT THE LAW The law has been definied (according to Dr. Putney) to be that which no man knows, but is charged with a complete knowledge of, at his peril, and at which the Supreme Court (U. S.) has the last guess. Knowledge of the law has been considered as follows: The layman is conclusively presumed to know the law. The lawyer is charged only with a reasonable knowledge thereof. The courts rest in complete ignorance of the law, depending for their knowl- edge almost entirely upon the opposing litigants. All of which is another of life’s delightful inconsistencies. It was on the occasion of a visit of the class in Practice to the Municipal Court. Under the guiding genius of the instructor, Professor Munter, the class was learning much about the mysteries of the place. A gruff and brutal, not to say, unappreciative, lawyer entered. He saw Professor Munter. He looked at the assembled students. Then he bawled : “What’s this? A class in Americanization?” [ 220 ] GIVE HIM CREDIT Let us give credit where credit is due. We must consider giving credit to Godfrey Munter, Proctor in Swiss Ad- miralty Practice, bless his sweet soul, whom we found unbearable, as an instructor. To begin with, the slow, tedious, solemn manner of lecturing affected by this professor produced a state of somnambulism from which the student with difficulty emerged. Then again, the extreme formality with which he asked questions and the rigid code applied by him to his credit system (“the longer you are on your feet in my course, the more credit you get”), and the fact that he formally notified each student reciter to the effect that “I shall give you credit,” were conducive to studious and rapt attention on the part of his classes in Sales, Suretyship and Practice. The lecture halls, when Mr. Munter occupied the rostrum, were so quiet, we regret to report, that you could have heard an anvil fall, or a bomb explode ; in fact, they resembeled a very quiet, sweetly solemn bit of pandemonium. However, credit must be given to Mr. Munter, much credit it would seem, for his kindly efforts to raise the standard of the bar now practicing before the Mu- nicipal Court. We shall give him credit. Besides, whoever heard of a lawyer waiving his fee? Omitted from the Class History. — The Editor. [221 ] LAW AND LOGIC “Why is it that claims of federal officers for their salaries when the amount is under $10,000 usually are filled in the Court of Claims, here: ' ” asked Dr. Put- ney, in Federal Procedure. “I guess it is because the Court of Claims is near the Treasury,” replied Arthur Winn. “And where, Mr. Eder, did you get your extensive knowledge on the point?” queried Professor Munter. “Ah!” replied Mr. Eder, “I have written a book on the subject.” “X” BEING AN UNKNOWN QUANTITY “You must never confuse the date of an invention with the date of an appli- cation for a patent,” said Professor Hostetler, gravely, to his class in Patent Law. “Let me give you a suggestion: associate the date of the invention with your birthday and the date of the patent application with your wedding day.” Which was fine, except that fewer than half of the class members were married. Question : What would you do, if, as editor, you had no copy to fill a space just this size? Answer : I would print Dr. Putney’s best known line : “Are there any other questions ?” [ 222 ] MR. O’DONNELL’S LAWN MOWER Now, then, Class, if your neighbor borrowed your lawn mower and mowed his own lawn, and then left the lawn mower standing on his own lawn, what would you do? Would you go and get it? Or, would you have to sue him for it? I’ll tell you. You ought to walk right over and get it, that is, you ought to walk right over and get it if you can do so without a breach of the peace. That’s part of the doctrine of self-help. But, what if the neighbor was standing over the lawn mower brandishing a pitchfork — well, that’s something else. If he were holding that pitchfork above his head and announcing that he would make a triple incision in you — then, you better sue ; you had better take a chance with the twelve honest yokels in a little case in court. That’s a much better doctrine of self-help. The Class President [ 223 ] Faculty CAuto raphs Certificate (No Docket examined unless this certificate is made.)

It deters crimes by punishments severe. It’s edicts willful persons must respect. The Public Will ordains that laws be just, That rights and privileges of men shall be secure. Secure inside those limits plain to all, Beyond whose bounds is known ’’without the law.” The law should be a shelter for the poor, The weak, the minor, and the fool. It should not be a refuge for a class, But ought throw wide its portals e’er to all. ’Tis Justice, by the Law, which makes for Peace, Fair dealing ’tween man and man, and ’twixt Great States. Let’s foster then a World Judicial plan, To encompass all the Earth within its sphere. Then would the Law throughout the World prevail, To peaceful settlements of grievances applied, To banish all the frightful reek of wars, And win us Peace, at last, through Law. s S s Before or after Class Meet at The Herald Square Cafeteria “Just Around the Corner” Fine Food Well Cooked Reasonable Prices Fast and Polite Service Large Variety at All Times Sandwiches Good Coffee 1303 H STREET, N.W.

Do you know, folks, I have had to rewrite almost two ' thirds of this stuff. Some of them never heard of the rules of grammar and some of them, apparently, were too poor to buy a spelling book. Moylan: Is that right, Bill? Couldn ' t they even spell? What are they trying to stud) law for if they can ' t use good English? Bruckart: Goodness knows. I don ' t. Bogan: National needs the money. Krase: Yes. They feel like they ought to contribute something to the school. Bruckart: Staff, I ' ve discovered that we have no insert for the section where we are going to put all of this chaff that is labelled “funny stuff”. Bogan: We can fix one. Why not call it “Legal Wit and Humor”? Mrs. Rhodes: “Illegal” would be better. Bruckart: Fine! Mrs. Rhodes, type those lour words on a regular form there, and we will mark it to run in six point type. That ' ll make it different — those little letters on a big blank page. Krase: But here is some poetry. It is not intended to be funny. Bruckart: We ' ll fix that. Mrs. Rhodes, add the words, “With Exceptions” to the line on that page. That will serve. If the poetry is good, it ' s an exception. So there you are. Enter, Mrs. Bruckart. Continued on Page 237 Keith cMoyer in Probate Court: “We consumed the facts to he as you stated (Bar Examination Candidates It is possible for the law student to review ' for the Bar Examination by himself just as it is possible to study law without attending law school, but that is certainly not the most effective method of review. The advantages of a quiz course, therefore, ought to be rather obvious. Such a review under the guidance of SMITH unifies the great mass of uncorrelated principles which the student has learned in law school. 24 7 am S. T eac . Pres den t.

Continued from Page 23 5 T The Last Session Mrs. Bruckart: Folks, it’s after 12 o’clock. Clear off some of your papers and I’ll serve you some food. Bruckart: Front, Boy. Bogan: I vote no on this one piece of poetry. Mrs. Rhodes: Mr. Bruckart, how did the Freshman Class picture turn out? Bruckart: Okeh. That is, it made them look like Freshmen. Still, there are some pretty girls in that class. Mrs. Bruckart: Leave it to my husband. He will see them. Krase: Bogan, did you correct Edelin’s biography? Bogan: Yes. But I didn’t want to. I’m hable to have to kill that) guy. My wife thinks he’s good looking. Mrs. Rhodes: AH of the women do. Bruckart: Now, let’s begin again on page 1, and check the stuff page by page. Bogan: Go through all of that faculty again as well as the various and sundry lobsters in the Senior panels? Bruckart: Yes. They must be checked, lobsters or oysters. If this boy, Derden, had his stuff in, we could make up the whole book tonight. As it is, we can complete every ' thing to the ad section, but we’ll have to stop there. Krase: Bill, which one of the professors kicked that his picture was too far back in the faculty list? Mrs. Rhodes: Did one of them do that? Well, I declare. He must take himself ser i ' ously. Bruckart: (Handing Mrs. Rhodes a pic ' ture) This is the old boy. I have ’em all locked this time, though. If there are kicks about where their pictures appeared, I’ll refer them to the well known Dean. We have used the list of faculty members in the order they are printed in the catalogue and I was informed that Dean Carusi arranged that list. They can squawk all they want to about that. Bogan: When you start checking the Senior panels, read them off. I want to com ' pare my records with them. There are about thirty that haven’t paid their dollar for the picture yet. Some of them are dodging me, but I ' m going to corner them and ask them for it right before a gang. Bruckart: That seems to conclude the first dummy. It represents two hundred pages back of us, all in two nights. Now, we’ll start on the next dummy. Who’s next on the Docket staff? That’s right, our little treasurer and our big business manager. Fob low that with Mrs. Rhodes, then the panel of Bogan, Krase and Moylan and then Rickies and Wallace. Mrs. Rhodes: Where is that illegal wit section that I prepared? Krase: The section’s not illegal. Bruckart: Some of the stuff in it is, how ' ever, and I imagine that there will be com ' ment of an adverse nature by a few of the bright young students of the class. Bogan: Of course. They will be the ones to do it. Especially some of those who had to be chased around for their pictures and their payments. Bruckart: But by that time, we’ll all be in a nice position to wiggle our ears at them. I’ll yip right back: Your remarks are so ep ' lightening; go on and study your law and attend your quiz courses and do everything but help your class with its year book. Moylan: Bill, here’s the last of the illegal stuff and unless you have some more tucked away, we are clear on this side of the table. Bruckart: Thanks be, for that. As soon as I can get Derden’s stuff, I can trek away to Baltimore and shout: nothing to do until the proofs come back. FINIS. G 77ze Editor renews a eg no i n l once with his fomily.
