Prologue w. love to cherish faded things. We are eager to re- flect the memoirs of school days upon the mirror of Time and to fondle the thoughts of the Past when we shall wear our crowns of gray. In an earnest endeavor to preserve those events at National for future dreams and to portray to the soul of old Age the tender memories of Youth when we studied law, we, the Staff of this Annual, present to our Classmates this issue of the 1929 Docket. By such means our dear friends will never leave us, though we be parted by a chain of Years, but will be with us until we pass o’er the sea into the sanctuary of Eternal Sleep.

When considered generally that is true, but some parts of it give radiance to a world of achievement, advancement and progress. No doubt many chapters are darkened by the shadow of those who would keep us in the cesspools of ignorance, yet, though slowly, our present is being pierced by the beacon light of a greater tomorrow when enlightenment and learning shall rule alone. The history of our Alma Mater shows its eagerness to give Ambition a chance to soar to what heights it might aspire. As we turn back the cobwebbed pages of Time we find its origin in the grim and gloomy days of Reconstruction, a day when injustice ran rampant and the law was hanged in effigy. Courts were corrupt with partisanism and human rights were ravished by ruthless rascals seeking spoils. Here was a time when our country was in dire need of men familiar with the law and possessed with an anxiety to apply it justly. No better moment could have been chosen or a more appro- priate time to begin. National University was first organized in 1869 under a charter issued by the District of Columbia. In 1896, by a Special Act of Congress, the present charter was granted. By virtue of this charter the incorporation of their successors were empowered to establish and maintain an institution of learning of such a wide scope that the now existing departments are but an example of what is possible of creation should the full advantage ever be taken of the powers available. Five Presidents of the United States have served in the capacity of Chancellors ex-officio. Men of prominence and preeminence, jurists of both Bench and Bar, have served as lecturers, professors and instructors. Each year adds a greater list of students to its roster. The School is proud of its record, having been able to acquire the reputation of preparing a larger percentage of successful candidates for the Bar than any other school in Washington. And what shall we say of the future, except that those who seek to wear the mantle of Knowledge our University offers, will become more famed in their respective fields than those of the past? With the wide latitude of development yet unborn, we can but hope our school will become as broad and far-reaching as her name. The Class of 1929 has taken advantage of the opportunity presented to those who must use the day to earn their way and the night to seek their future and feel their worth to the world in which they are now about to enter. Our debt to National Uni- versity can be paid by an honest and upright practice of those various branches of the law which we have chosen for our livelihood. grM : f t the School Forfun ' r a world i darkened fc) ‘ though slow i when enhgtneQir The history soar to w at i -c « find its o f lgin in the go ran camTunt an- • -.he and hurain rtgtus t when our count -■ vn anxiety to [ v t u priate time to teg National Ln. er t District of Column granted.

To the American of this day and age a knowledge has become almost a necessity. Not only are the con- ditions of modern industrial life in the forty-eight United States of increasing com- plicity, but in no direction has competition become more severe than in preparation successfully to meet them. Such training as can be acquired in a school or college of a University is of necessity largely theoretical. You will at least have had the advantage of study under the guidance of a faculty consisting of lawyers and judges whose mental attitude toward the law is that which can come only from the workshop. With this start, your real education in the law may confidently be left to you without further guidance. With sincere good wishes for your success at the bar, I bid you an affectionate farewell.

To those of you who may come to the Bar and remain in practice, however, I give welcome to a profession which, I believe, will find you well prepared.

Far be it from me to venture any prediction as to the measure of success which you will individually attain in the actual practice of the legal profession ; but it requires neither a prophet nor the son of a prophet to foretell the attainment of brilliant results by those who have labored diligently and, reaping the reward of their assiduity as students, will apply themselves with equal diligence to the practice of the noble pro- fession of the law. A young man who was applying the pressure of high-powered salesmanship to a prospective bond purchaser was asked by his intended victim whether he had a pro- fession, to which he promptly replied that he was a lawyer by profession but a bond sales- man by force of circumstances. It is a foregone conclusion that such a condition will never confront a member of the Class of 1929, armed to the teeth with legal lore and eager to accomplish great results for a long line of worthy and anxious clients. Perish the thought that these years of grinding endeavor in pursuing the Goddess of Justice should thus be ruthlessly sacrificed to the God of Mammon. When the doors of this institution have swung outward the last time for the members of this class, each should realize that, after all, the study of law is merely the means of an end; that books, whatever the hue of their covers may be, yield nothing except the opportunity to master their contents ; that lectures and quizzes, however enter- tainingly administered, cannot supplant or serve as a substitute for painstaking indi- vidual effort.

I am glad to do so, not only because it gives be an opportunity to express my appreciation of the privilege of having come in contact with you, and of your kindness to me, and to extend to you my best wishes for the future, but also because it gives me the opportunity to leave a thought with you for your consideration, as graduates of National University, concerning your and my Alma Mater. As all of you know, 1, too, am an alumnus of National. It has been 21 years since I took my Bachelor’s degree in law, but even now I can recall that at the time of graduation I gave little thought to National as an institution, and was primarily impressed with a deep sense of relief that the long, hard grind of attending many classes night after night, and the preparation of reci- tations for those classes, was at last over. Such an attitude, I believe, is only natural, and I imagine that each of you will feel the same way. However, as time went on, I began to realize that National was more than a school; it was Alma Mater. Today I appreciate more than ever the existence of that intangible something which personifies old National as a living benefactress. For generation afte r generation National has opened the door of opportunity to serious minded young people (and older ones also) and made it possible for them to acquire the fundamental principles of an honorable profession, training in the difficult processes of logical, straight-thinking, establish enduring friendships with fellow students, enjoy contact with earnest instrucstors and officials of the school whose primary purpose is service, and with it all, to develop through the hardening process of persistent self-denial and self-control a staunchness of character which cannot help but be of inestimable value in meeting the subsequent problems of the future. All of this is something which mere tuition fees cannot purchase. Tuition fees gain admission to the oppor- tunity, but it is only through serious seeking and earnest cooperation that National yields the full measure of opportunity and benefits. The character of the student body, the associations, and the environment, are such as are offered by few schools. I am therefore seeking to bring home to you now the perspective which time would eventually accomplish, — that old National is, in a very real sense, our Alma Mater; that as such, she is entitled to receive, and each and every alumnus should be not only willing but proud to render, loyal, enthusiastic and constructive support always, and timely service when opportunity permits. Pull for National ! National has a past of which we may be proud, and has reasonable prospects of a future in achievement second to none. Let us all do something to help to accomplish that future. I have taken, perhaps, more space than you intended I should use, but I believe you will feel that the space you will allot may well be regarded as a present part payment upon the indebtedness to National which you intend to liquidate. In closing I want to become personal for a moment. I have been with you through your three-year course. It has been a real pleasure to serve you, and I believe that you feel that I am sincere in saying so. I have enjoyed my contacts with you and have appreciated and do appreciate the kind regard which you have demonstrated, in so many ways, you have for me. You know that you have my best wishes for your future success, and I am confident that National will be proud of the Class of 1929. Sincerely, George P. Barse. n — ) b J V f j b t b r 1 b c J 7 c J S , J I 1 V NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL 4 o 4 O O L 4. 4_r C 5 ' £ 1 l 38 ] GEORGE P. BARSE, A.B., LL.M.

Judge Siddons is a scholar of note, Who delighted in making us the goat; We thought his Evidence teas confusion, But he was hell on the Constitution. Prof. Syme told a joke as best he could , And we had to laugh as if it teas good; Of Partnership we never learned the law, But his exa?n was the toughest you saw. Judge Willett of the ole Atoot Courts, Reviewed us on crimes and some torts; And if your case you would ever delay , No nice words would come your way. Now as for the little Green Book so rare , To forget its contents you wouldn ' t dare, O Donnell told us about every night, To look it up and we ' d find he was right . ”Bert” Emerson lulled his class to sleep Even when his voice teas weak; Every time he stopped his balking, You knew some guy in class was talking. Now Godfrey Alunter put forth a bluff , And made us believe he knew his stuff ; Fie ripped and snorted upon the bench, But put on the law with a monkey wrench. And as for Clerk of Aloot Court Belle w, Just what he shouted we never knew; ” H old upyourright hand please,” he said . And we held up the left one instead. The ole classroom began to hum, His South ' rn fire had us ’neath his thumb; His eloquence dimmed the Mazdas ' glow — This man Patterson and Richard Roe. Tho the sand of Time is fast falling. And the bar exam is calling: Tho hopes may fade and hopes may flower , We won ' t forget to give Barse his dower. n • V ■ V t r 1 — r 1 _c J ■ S V V { V NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL i U IS t 5 e b [ 52 ] " The most beautiful memorial to those who have jaded from our midst into the emptiness of Space, is Memory.

The loved and loving brother, husband, father, friend, died where man- hood’s morning almost touches noon, and while the shadows still were falling towards the West. He had not passed on life’s highway the stone that marks the highest point, but being weary for a moment he laid down by the wayside, and, using his burden for a pillow, fell into that dreamless sleep that kisses down his eyelids still. While yet in love with life and raptured with the world, he passed to silence and pathetic dust. Yet, after all, it may be best, just in the happiest, sunniest hour of all the voyage, while eager winds are kissing every sail, to dash against the unseen rock, and in an instant hear the billows roar a sunken ship. For, whether in mid-sea or among the breakers of the farther shore, a wreck must mark at last the end of each and all. And every life, no matter if its every hour is rich with love and every moment jeweled with a joy, will, at its close, become a tragedy, as sad, and deep, and dark as can be woven of the warp and woof of mystery and death. This brave and tender man in every storm of life was oak and rock, but in the sunshine he was vine and flower. He was the friend of all heroic souls. He climbed the heights and left all superstitions far below, while on his forehead fell the golden dawning of a grander day. He loved the beautiful, and was with color, form and music touched to tears. He sided with the weak, and with a willing hand gave alms; with loyal heart and with the purest hand he faithfully dis- charged all public trusts. He was a worshipper of liberty and a friend of the oppressed. A thousand times I have heard him quote the words: " For justice all place a temple and all season summer.” He believed that happiness was the only good, reason the only torch, justice the only worshipper, humanity the only religion, and love the priest. He added to the sum of human joy, and were every one for whom he did some loving service to bring a blossom to his grave he would sleep to-night beneath a wilder- ness of flowers. Life is a narrow vale between the cold and barren peaks of two eter- nities. We strive in vain to look beyond the heights. We cry aloud, and the only answer is the echo of our wailing cry. From the voiceless lips of the unreplying dead there comes no word; but in the night of death hope sees a star and listening love can hear the rustle of a wing. He who sleeps here, when dying, mistaking the approach of death for the return of health, whispered with his latest breath, " I am better now.” Let us believe, in spite of doubts and dogmas and tears and fears that these dear words are true of all the countless dead. And now, to you who have been chosen from among the many men he loved to do the last sad office for the dead, we give his sacred dust. Speech cannot contain our love. There was — there is — no gentler, stronger, man- lier man.” — Robert G. Ingersoll. n V i V i ‘j r 1 ■) t ■? c c c -T — V n NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL o ' CC «U 4 [56 ] fn t ?

Our dreams of victory and achievement have not been dis- appointing when we compare the pleasure of anticipation with the realization of our accomplishments. At least we can all rest assured that we are richer in the treasure of warm friendships which our years of association have given us, and as we come to the parting of the ways we realize that we have gained something that will not be lost with the passing of Time. It is true that many of us may never see one another again, but the warm friendships formed during our years at National will endure throughout Life. Since this is the History of the Class of 1929 we must necessarily start with the date of October 1, 1926, when we gathered in the " OLD LOWER HALL” for the customary opening exercises and were advised by Dean Carusi that we were the " most intelligent and best looking Class that had ever entered the University”. There is no doubt but that the Dean was correct. Class organization being of primary interest to us, the Class was called to order on the evening of October 19th by Dr. Robert W. McCollough, President of the Class of 1928, and after the usual nominations and campaigning period, Edmund L. Plant was elected President of the Class. Ed’s popularity extended far beyond the confines of his own Class and as Chief Executive of one of the largest classes ever enrolled in National University, he proved by the exercise of tact and diplomacy that we made no mistake in choosing him as our leader. Other officers for the Freshmen year were: A. D. DeBirny, Vice-President; Miss Alice L. Kelly, Secretary; David Lynn 5th, Treas- urer; Samuel Lightman, Historian; A. M. Green, Class Editor; and William H. McGrath, Sergeant-at-Arms. During our Freshman year the outstanding social event was the dance on April 23, 1927, held at the Mayflower Hotel. The affair was a splendid one and was enjoyed by a record breaking crowd, though the returns were not so gratifying to the ears of the Treasurer. The Freshman smoker was another event of importance and was well attended by students and also members of the Faculty. The meetings of the Alvey Debating Society, composed of Freshmen, attracted a large portion of the Class and a number distinguished themselves in forensic oratory. The Society was presided over in the Fall term by P. R. Baldridge and in the Winter and Spring terms by Samuel Lightman. It was during the Spring term that a very F” v t 5 7 r ) j 5 £ 5 S 5 5 5 C - 5 PH NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL 23 23 23 23 23 23 S3 £3 23T3 23 43 21 c F 5 [ 139 ] ? • " J ' . ! ft TJ U TJ U U " interesting intercollegiate debate took place between our school and Bridgewater College. The Alvey Society was represented by Walter W. Bryan ; Samuel Lightman being chosen as Alternate. Before passing from the Freshman year a few student accomplishments should not be forgotten. William D. Medley was awarded the Eugene Carusi Gold Medal for the most satisfactory Freshman examination, and Fred W. Smith and Clarence L. Lavender received Honorable mention ; Wilbur J. Moneyhun won the set of Corpus Juris — Cyc for the best work in legal research; and Louis G. Padgett won the John Byrne prize for the best examination in Bills and Notes. Norwood P. Cassidy was awarded the Faculty Debating Prize for the year 1926-1927, while Walter W. Bryan and Samuel Lightman were other contenders. The Golden Scholastic Key awarded by Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity was won by Eugene V. Cogley. With one year of our task complete and a few new faces added, we met again on September 30, 1927, and henceforth were known as Juniors. Classes had not yet assembled before the rumble and roar of politics again stirred the peaceful air. With only two candidates for the Presidency ' , all interest centered around the personages of Norwood P. Cassidy and John R. Fletcher, two of our most outstanding students. The most important question ' ' in the campaign was the cry of Lynn, " Have you paid your Class Dues?’’ The Class realized that the election of either of these enthusiastic classmates would mean success, for they recognized the ability of both. They pro- ceeded to elect Cassidy. The popularity of both candidates was revealed by the vote each received. Cassidy was conceded to be one of the best students in the Class, both for spirit and study. Other officers were: Jesse C. Byrd, Vice-President; Miss Ella N. Jones, Secretary; William A. Porter, Treasurer; A. W. DeBirny, Class Editor; H. Reese Harrison, Historian; John J. Collins, Class Orator; and Harry B. Milnor, Sergeant-at- Arms. The confidence with which we entered our Junior year soon was on the wane as we were confronted with the subjects of Common Law Pleading, Evidence and Real Property. However, when the mist cleared and the marks were known it was found that the great majority had been successful in their examinations and that " Bill” Med- ley had made 100 £ in Common Law Pleading! In other words, " He knew his little Green Book”! From a social point of view our Junior year was far superior to our Freshman year. The Junior Prom held on February 18, 1928, in the Hall of Nations of the Washington Hotel was a glorious” affair which surpassed all other functions of our Class. To John S. Batman and his competent aides belongs the principal credit for the wonderful success of the Prom, both socially and financially. A few members of the Class were quite active in the Miller (Junior) Debating Society. Walter W. Bryan was elected Chairman without opposition, together with being recognized as one of the most outstanding debators in the Class. The most inter- esting debate of the year was on the subject of Evolution”, during which Bob Barker, the only Freshman contending for the Faculty Prize, cut many " monkey shines”. Samuel Lightman won the prize for the year 1927-1928, and David Lynn 5th received Honor- able mention. It should be remembered that in the Faculty Prize debates during our NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL o d [ 140 ] r A. v — « f I • I . . l v v . f i " i • r TJ U o u, t " t £ ) £ j n I ✓ - ■ r jit i iv vx vv. i u u u d Freshman and Junior years, three of the four candidates in each prize debate were members of our Class. To make this history complete it should be stated that Norwood P. Cassidy, Alan B. David, Sylvia Deane, Alice Kelly, William F. Kelly and Clarence L. Lavender were the six students of our Class receiving medals, keys, prizes or honorable mention for their work during our Junior year. Although the work during the second year of our study of the law was most diffi- cult, we will recall with smiles the incidents and stories told us by several of our learned professors. Prof. " Tom’’ Patterson’s stories were always entertaining as well as instruc- tive. The story of the " GEEnette Will” case will always be remembered when the question of power of appointment arises, and the subject of re moval of fixtures can never be at issue without reflecting Richard Roe’s advice to John Doe to the effect, ' Don’t nail er down Jawn, ’cause if you do the law’s ag’in ye”. Professor Johnson’s lectures in Equity will always be a pleasant memory though we could not agree with him when he said " So you see it’s all very simple.” The greeting of " Good evening, everybody” by Professor Barse and the warning " It’s in the Little Green Book” by Professor O’Don- nell, will be impressed upon our minds forevermore. Who will forget the proverb given us by Professor Munter, ”He that is surety for a stranger shall smart for it; and he that hateth suretiship is sure”? Our Senior year was ushered in with the usual clamor of the office seekers. Never before in the history of our Class had the campaign been so intense and bitter, though when the cloud passed across the sun, bright friendships were renewed and all joined hands for their common endeavor. So close was the margin of victory in most instances that recounts were necessary to satisfy many as to who the successful candidates were. There were only two candidates of each office and this year it was Porter who cried, " Pay your Class Dues”! While the ballots were being counted it was a genuine election night. Small groups of students stood around the corridors mumbling " I believe he won” — ”1 voted against him” — " Got any campaign cigars left?” With Cassidy calling off the votes and Miss Kelly and Miss Jones managing the tally, the " Press box” was busy giving out advanced reports. The final count disclosed that the following officers had been elected to lead us through the year as the greatest graduating Class in the history of the University: George J. Vaughan, President; William H. McGrath, Vice- President; John S. Batman, Treasurer; Miss Sara T. Mero, Secretary; Clarence L. Laven- der, Historian; David Lynn 5th, Editor of the 1929 Docket; H. Reese Harrison, Class Editor; Fred W. Smith, Class Orator; and William S. Donaldson, Sergeant-at-Arms. At the beginning of our Senior Year we were admitted to the Moot Court after obeying Clerk Bellew’s command to " Holdupyourrighthandplease.” We found Judge Willett ready, able and willing ( " Manifestly so”) to assist us in our debut to our profession. Many interesting cases were tried, both civil and criminal. Miss Alice Kelly, as one of Plaintiff’s counsel, did much in winning her client a $10,000 verdict. Too bad it was merely a Moot Court case. The suit for breach of promise to marry also attracted unusual interest, due to three of the " fair sex” appearing as counsel for the plaintiff. Even though a verdict for only six cents was awarded by the liberal jury, the " Portias” f VQ- i — 1 NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL | 0= 4A 0 J] C E 5 [ HI ] felt compensated for their efforts as this was the first time a verdict for the plaintiff in this case had been won in a number of years. The members of the Bar of the Moot Court are unanimous in their praise of the splendid work done by Miss Hodder as Assistant Clerk and to the Marshall and his deputies. Marshall Hansen’s famous " ORDER IN THE COURT, PLEASE! " always brought the desired results, though when one of his deputies cried the usual " Oyez " we could hardly hear him. The Senior Prom held on December 8, 1928 in the Hall of Nations of the Wash- ington Hotel was the first social event of the year. It was voted a success as a social feature even though from a financial point of view it was not what was expected of the Class. An attempt having been made to relate the History of our Class we must now take leave to say a word of our School. We cherish a friendliness for National that only silent thought can express. We can never pay the debt of gratitude we owe our Faculty, but they can be assured we hold them in high esteem and will profit by their teachings and aspire to be worthy of the name, " Attorney”. Clarence L. Lavender Historian n? j v j { v ' i v Q CZz Q dh. a NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL 2 ££ ££ ££ L JT T. I H2 ] Then the lawyer said, but what of our Laws, master? And he answered: You delight in laying down laws, Yet you delight more in breaking them. Like children playing by the ocean who build sand-towers with consistency and then destroy them with laughter. But while you build your sand-towers the ocean brings more sand to the shore, And when you destroy them the ocean laughs with you. Verily the ocean laughs always with the innocent. But what of those to whom life is not an ocean, and man-made laws are not sand-towers, But to whom life is a rock, and the law a chisel with which they would carve it in their own likeness? What of the cripple who hates dances? What of the ox who loves his yoke and deems the elk and deer of the forest stray and vagrant things? What of the old serpent who cannot shed his skin, and calls all others naked and shameless ? And of him who comes early to the wedding-feast, and when over-fed and tired goes his way saying that all feasts are violation and all feasters law-breakers? What shall I say of these save that they too stand in the sunlight, but with their backs to the sun? They see only their shadows, and their shadows are their laws. And what is the sun to them but a caster of shadows? And what is it to acknowledge the laws but to stoop down and trace their shadows upon the earth ? But you who walk facing the sun, what images drawn on the earth can hold you? You who travel with the wind, what weather-vane shall direct your course? What man’s law shall bind you if you break your yoke but upon no man’s prison door ? What laws shall you fear if you dance but stumble against no man’s chains? And who is he that shall bring you to judgment if you tear off your garment yet leave it in no man’s path?

We hereby direct the payment of all our overdue tuition and graduation fees. 2. We desire that all ill-feeling between ourselves and the lower classes, if any, to be dispensed with, absolutely and forever. 3. To the faculty we leave kind memories, for we are indebted to them for what knowledge we are supposed to have of the law of the land. 4. To the Classes yet unborn, we leave Judge Siddons, the family heirloom, with the advice to handle him with care so as to preserve him for the Ages. 5. To the Freshman Class we leave advice, though being Freshmen, we know they will not heed: In promulgating your esoteric cogitations, and articulating your super- ficial sentimentalities, and amicable, philosophical and psycological observations, beware of platitudinous ponderosity. Let your conversational communications possess a clarified conciseness, a compact comprehensibleness and a coalescent consistency. Eschew all con- glomerations of flatulent garrulity, jejune babblement, and asinine affections. Let your extemporaneous descantings and unpremeditated expatiations have intelligibility and vivacious vivacity, without rhodomontade or tharsional bombast. Sedulously avoid all poly silibic profundity, pompous prolixity, psitious vacuity, ventriloquil verbosity and vaniloquent vapidity, shun doubleentenders, pruint jocosity, pestiferious profanity, obscur- ient or apparent. — In other words, talk plainly, briefly, sensible, and truthfully. Keep from slang and DON ' T USE BIG WORDS. 6. To the Juniors we leave advice, though being Juniors we know they must know it all: In taking a case before the Moot Court, prepare at least one month in advance; don ' t talk back to Judge Willett; and if you have any lady witnesses be sure they are good looking and wear short skirts — all of which goes over with the jury. (Note: If jury has to sit after ten p. m., feed ’em ice cream cones!) 7. The lady members of the Class give and bequeath unto the co-eds of the lower classes, their rest room, wherein they may smoke, tell jokes and " cat” about any girl not present. 8. The boys of the Class give and bequeath unto the " college boys” of the lower classes their " barracks,” on the walls of which they may write poetry and wherein they may seclude themselves while skipping Conflict of Laws and Evidence. 9.

The hour of parting is at hand. Our evening has come and each must board his ship and sail into the uncharted Seas of Ambition and Success. May no sun find us where we were left at its setting. May no Man’s ship encoun- ter the tempest or the storm. Brief were our days together and briefer the words we spake. But if our voices fade away and our friends hear not and our faces vanish into nothingness and our friends remember not, then shall we come again. Yea! We shall return with the tide — a phantom adorned in a diaphanous veil of a pleasant dream. We set our sails to the winds today, but we sail not into the emptiness beyond the horizon. We but seek more lands to conquer. If unseen rocks we wreck upon and be hidden by the cloud of Death, we shall return from a greater silence and be together again. Though some we knew not and others were unkind, we now join hands for a brighter and happier tomorrow. To measure us by our smallest deed, or to judge us by our slightest harm, is to reckon the power and the strength of the Ocean by the frailty of its bubbles and foam. To indict us for our failures, our inconsistencies or our errors, is to pick fault and blame Summer for its rain. Let us leave in unity, though our hearts be aching, remembering that we are Classmates of the same mold. Some will say this is praise and we see not but the good in us. Perfection is yet in the womb and we are old. We say these things because of that which we ourselves know in thought. Some of us have deemed others proud. Others have known our conceit. Some of us slept on the Portico while others had beds to share. Others ate the berries in the hills and dales while we had tables of plenty. We have all had our faults and misgivings. But the veil and mist that covers our eyes shall be lifted by the hands that wove them and before we sail today we shall see with clarity the good in all. And the clay in our ears shall be pierced by the fingers that placed it there and we shall hear with sorrow the parting words and phrases of our friends. The wind is blowing. Our sails are restless and impatient. Already our rudders seek direction. Yet we linger on the threshold where once we entered as strangers and now depart as comrades. There will be weeping ’neath smiles and sad hearts ’neath glad faces. There will be the sigh, the salute and the handshake, a bid of farewell and adieu, but some will be mute and say nothing while others laugh and stroll on. We are Classmates of the same mold and we bid each other well. Class of ’29 farewell. May our parting be a closer gathering and our distances but a myth.

We’d go or,r the whole thing anew. W e wouldn’t sign attendance cards Downstairs outside the corral; We’d stick and learn law by yards, Not by inches and datin’ our gal. We’d pay our tuition when it was due, And not let ’em dun us by mail; And though " Chic” was a Dan McGrew, W e’d gladly hand him our kale. We’d sit and listen to all the bunk. And we would gladly be the goats ; W e’d never know what it was to flunk Evidence and Bills and Notes. We’d study fust seven nights a week. And we’d really learn some law; Though fudge Bailey put us asleep, We’d remain and fill our craw.

Although vacation memories were pleasant, yet the sight of familiar faces and the cordial greetings from other members did not make the " old grind " seem quite so bad. The election of class officers which was held soon afterwards, was a decided contrast to that of the previous year. There was absent in this contest the party spirit so evident in the Freshman year, and although there was a spirit of friendly rivalry, no untoward incident occurred. A most capable President was chosen in Dr. Walter L. Hagen. The reception given his acceptance speech was more than sufficient to allay any doubt as to the united support of the Class. As the year passed on, the Class felt even more strongly that our President merited the confidence placed in him. The efficient way in which he has handled class affairs, and his interest in them, have " proved beyond a reasonable doubt” that the class made no mistake in choosing him for the high- est office they could bestow on one of their number. The other officers elected were: Frances T. Foley, Vice-President; Ely G. Treger, Secretary; Linnaeus T. Savage, Treasurer; James E. Artis, Historian; Lawrence K. Elliott, Sergeant-at- Arms ; Fleming S. Stevens, Orator; and Libbey S. Lewis, Editor. These officers have been found to be ready and willing to work for the good of the class and have always shown a splendid spirit of cooperation. After the excitement of the class election, everything went along smoothly until much distress, not to say worry, was caused by the Class encountering the " Exceptions to the Hearsay Rule” in Evidence (we still wonder if there is a Hearsay Rule), " Fictions” in Common Law Pleading, " Rule in Shelley’s Case” and the " Rule against Perpetuities” in Real Property. Before we struck these rocks, we thought we knew something about the law, but after floundering in these uncertain waters, we were certain of but one thing: we didn’t really know anything! We cannot say we know so very much about any of them even now as the blue sky begins to appear. The Junior Class has been active socially during the past year, supporting, by the presence of its members, the activities of the classes and fraternities. To the Graduates, we who expect to take your places next year, wish every success might be yours ; we know you merit it. May we be your worthy successors. To the Freshman Class we express the hope that their Junior year may be a profitable one in scholarship and social events. James E. Artis, Historian Libbey S. Lewis. Class Editor n — 5 l C C c c c ?

Being an unusually large class there is naturally a great diversity of talent, and many promising young lawyers for the future. That is unusual. We were a bit unique in the election of our officers, slightly varying the traditions of our Alma Mater by taking five, instead of the usual two weeks, to decide on whom to bestow the great honor of directing our class affairs. Of course there was the cus- tomary amount of " politikin’ ” and campaigning before the results were known. After the din of battle had cleared away, David E. Hall had been elected President. Other class officers were: Genevieve Pratt, Vice-President; William E. Deering, Secretary; Wil- liam G. Baden, Treasurer; Tom Shanahan, Sergeant-at- Arms ; and Katherine F. Ham- mond, Historian. Finally the flying of time brought us within a few weeks of the second step toward the realization of our coveted career, namely, the first set of examinations. Some of the exceptionally clever students with a great deal of foresight, were able to fathom the minds of the worthy " Profs” and aid their fellow classmates by circulating most helpful data in the form of former exam questions and answers. It all proved to be great assistance and by some good fortune this necessary evil was passed over with the but few casualties. The second term was begun without incident. You will find, gentle reader, as you begin to make history, as we are now doing, that the law is a most unscrupulous instru- ment which rushes one headlong to his fate with very few backward glances. So we are being rushed on, being led into the wonderful mysteries of the world’s greatest science, the LAW. As it weaves its spell about us we forget the rapid flight of time and so all too soon the second set of exams makes its appearance and these being suc- cessfully completed we begin the last lap of the journey as Freshmen. During the course of these few months our social schedule will be full. We will introduce our Class song at one of these functions, and it will be noted that this is the first time in the history of National Law School that a Class has adopted a song. And time will go on and other classes will come and go, but always there will remain in the Docket of National University, this history of the first year of the Class of ’31. Katherine F.

Those students desiring to establish their place in the economic life of the nation have obtained much knowledge which will aid them in meeting their responsibility as business men. Many of them are present and future lawyers, and their studies in this department have undoubtedly convinced them that they will be better lawyers if in addition to their knowledge of law in the strict sense of the term, they are fortified with sound learning in the field of government, political science, and economics. With best wishes for success in their chosen callings, I bid the graduates of 1929 an affectionate farewell.

J ' s e J i j © Buckingham THE JUDICIARY ■ . THE MOOT COURT OF NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL The Court T- Temple of Justice is a temple of tragedy. It is a temple where happiness often yields to despair and smiles of joy are changed to tears of grief. We see there every phase of human society, every form of human character. There are bosoms where gleam fierce flames of vice and crime, and bosoms fragrant with violet vales of truth where the goddess Virtue sits enthroned. We see eyes wet with tears of penitence, hears pitious sobs of regret and words of pardon, soft and sweet. We hear savage cries for vengeance there, and see wrapped with precious robes of purity, hearts that lovingly forgive. There lurk the demons of revenge with dripping sword in hand, while hovering near may be ever seen divine angels of mercy and justice. Beyond the gathering clouds of gloom is seen the trembling star of hope. There are hearts upon which fall the shadows of night and hearts crowned with the splendors of imperial. We see dreadful pictures drawn and painted upon scarlet brows of shame and we see the throne of honor there and the sceptre held by lofty manhood’s king. The thorns of hatred mingle with the roses of love. There are crimson stains upon garments of guilt and pearls of sweat that crown the brows of honest men. Here one may see Life’s picture reflected.

ALPHA ETA PHI i J I f I " A W !_L± ' v i r n f I N r jv • f v V_ V v_ «. mnnj Kappa Beta Pi Omicron Chapter V £ appa Beti Pi Legal Sorority was organized in the autumn of 1908 at Chicago Kent College of Law, for the purpose of promoting a higher professional standard among women law students and to strengthen by education and companionship the tie that binds. 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 profes- sional, 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 pro- fessions. 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 Kather- ine Sellers, of our own Juvenile Court; Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean emeritis, Wash- ington 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. OMICRON CHAPTER OFFICERS Sarah W.

Tolson, Publicity J I J RE than eight years have passed since that small group of Master Masons conceived the idea of establishing, within the halls of National University, an organiza- tion founded upon those fundamental principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. There were only twenty then, but under the guidance of able and active brothers, with the hearty support and cooperation of Dean Carusi, this club has developed into one of the largest and most active organizations of the University. Sharing the burden of a brother Mason, exerting an influence in behalf of all that is good and worthwhile for our Alma Mater, that has been the program of work upon which we have thrived and developed. During the past year, under the enthusiastic leadership of President Miller, the Club has taken on new life and vigor, and much has been done to establish that feeling of good fellowship among the members of the student body and eliminate the friction and animosity which at times arises out of the political and social encounters of school life. No account of the National University Masonic Club and the part which it occupies in our school life should be presented without some mark of respect and tribute to the memory of those whose hour-glass has run its course. For many years Albert H. Putney and Henry L. Rathbone had walked among us, instructing and preparing us for that great profession in which they had attained high honor and distinction. But the grim scythe of time comes to all men and with the passing of these good brothers, National has suffered a great loss. The impress of their personality will linger long upon the hearts and minds of all who knew them. p? r s i 7 • i i r 1 ) ? 7 • t e — V n NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL x 0 0 4 4 L T h ] 201 [ Geo.

We, the Filipino students of National University, known as the Philippine Columbians, and component parts of the student body, desire to renew our allegiance to, and reaffirm our faith in, the ideals of our Alma Mater, — THE NA- TIONAL UNIVERSITY. Finding ourselves foreigners among you, we are trying hard to be proud recepients of your ideals so that we may adopt ourselves to your customs and traditions. We want to cooperate with you in your endeavor to make this a banner year for The National University. We are all self-supporting students who are laboriously struggling, though with handicaps, to acquire more education from our beloved institution. We realize that " to understand all is to know all” and we confidently hope that the opportunities offered to us by this institution of learning will be instrumental in solving our vexed problem — our inherent right to be free. We want to put ourselves on record as true, loyal and faithful students of National University so that we might follow with pride the footsteps of those Filipinos who preceded us. Filipino graduates of this institution are, by their unselfish service, reflecting credit upon the University, and also upon the Filipino people. We feel that in manifesting a spirit of cooperation with you, we are following in the footsteps of those Filipino graduates who have gone before. Four years ago this organization of Filipinos was founded and during its existence it has taken part in student activities and has loyalty supported the University. The Philippine Columbians of which we are justly proud will continue to serve the institution to which it owes its very existence. Hopeful that better American-Filipino social relations will be attained, we reaffirm our faith in our Alma Mater, and with victory earned, we will win for ourselves the recognition to which our efforts as loyal students of National University entitle us.

It is a book, the contents of which are simple, yet dear to each of us. Let your criticisms be fair and just, remembering the many handicaps which have confronted us in this work, but each obstacle has been subdued by a persistence not to be unworthy of the confidence you have reposed in the Staff. Our compensation is the joy derived from having been able to do something for our Class. An attempt to give the deserved recognition to those who are responsible for the success of this Annual would require a separate volume in itself. The Staff which has so ably and willingly assisted us in this endeavor are to be congratulated and commended for their time, energy and ability in making our dream a reality.

While it is true that there were more men in the orchestra than there were couples on the floor, there is one good thing about it; as compared to some of these Fraternity " huggin’ parties ”, one could really dance — if he knew how. Harry Kay, Chairman of the Entertainment Committee, in a last minute news flash says if each one who attended this ' Dance of the Pampus’’ would pay for his ticket, he could at least pay for the punch that wasn’t served. (The only punch served was at Child’s when a few of the boys received some love-taps from a couple of drunks.) Regardless of all the criticism, this dance was a success, for no other reason than because those who were present enjoyed themselves. Absque Hoc To the Classes of 1929, 30 and ’31 (to the exclusion of the Ladies), GREETINGS : On the 6th day of February, in the year of our Lord, 1929, the greatest function of the year was held — quite a contrast to the preceding affair on the social calendar. It was THE WAR COLLEGE SMOKER— in disguise! As this is the only affair of the school year when gentlemen (strike out the word " gentlemen” and insert in lieu thereof the words, " men students”) can assemble, assum- ing the role of the old days when woman’s place was in the kitchen instead of the divorce courts, it is natural that a large number of gentlemen (strike out the word " gentlemen” and insert in lieu thereof the w ' ords, " men students”) should attend. (Editor’s note: We regret the attraction cannot be published herewith). True to the old custom, four hundred and fifty were packed in a room capable of holding three hundred and one (the one being Professor Munter who is always present). What care we if a thousand were cramped in there like a classroom is before attendance cards are passed out, just so long as it was a big success for The Docket? Of course we hear the usual complaint of the caviler who denounces it for no other reason than because he didn’t come early enough to get a front seat with Professors Taylor, O’Don- n i — 5 f T C ?

Then too, there is that sort of insect who pays two fifty for a meal and a fifteen-act show and expects you to put on a Texas Guinan cabaret, includ- ing champagne, favors and opera glasses, give a refund of a dollar and send them home in a cab. To our President, George J. Vaughan and his able assistant, Maurice Freedman, Chairman of the Smoker Committee, and all those who assisted them, are due to highest praise. They worked to wipe out a deficit existing on the Annual estimates caused by the very sort of individual who is, by the way, not even worth mentioning under a videlicet and who is now kicking because he couldn’t sit in the dressing room and watch the girls adorn their costumes. (Did I say costumes? Pardon me!) When four hundred or so cattle are rushed into a corral there’s bound to be some disorder. But taking it all in all the crowd was orderly and behaved splendidly, except for the guy who went down the alley and threw a brick through five windows — apparently an imbecilic idiot who hasn’t the decency of an ordinary snake. As for the fellow who played monkey on the chandelier, he is to be excused. He piled his chairs too high. In reply to the question which seems to be in everyone’s mind as to whether he did or didn’t — we wish he hadn’t. Our space is limited but our praise boundless, and we want to know how many cigars Maurice carried home — either that or women. r f ? — " ? — v ? — v ? — ■? ? — ■? in NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL l 0 dA 41 [ 226 ] nnnn I + § f if n u l_y vv V v. I mnnr WiW It Come To This ? (A Stude of the Class of ’ 39 ) si T THE Mayflower, in a luxurious apartment with an electric radio and a crystal chandelier in the center of the room. The ivory clock on the mantle strikes five p. m. ; Henry, the valet, enters, goes to the bedside, tapping Stude gently on the shoulder. Stude sturs, yawns and lazily inquires: ' Why wake me at this hour? Have I a date before dinner?” — " I’ll see, sir”, (consulting memorandum), " Yes, you have, sir’. — " Who’n the hell is it with?” — " Miss Burnette”. — " Why I had a date with her last month”. — " Yes, sir, but this is another date, sir”. " Where is my dinner?” — " Here, sir”. Stude examines everything disgustedly, then proceeds to eat indifferently. Six-thirty and the announcer requests the students to standby for one moment as Prof. Barse has just arrived. Henry is seated near the radio, prepared to take notes on the lecture. " Henry! You must be more careful with your note taking. Those notes on Criminal Law you took Tuesday are boresome — too much repetition. The notes on Domestic Relations were all about some absurd and irrelevant thing that I have not discovered. You must improve your penmanship. I have received two complaints from Prof. Bastain that he was unable to distinguish between ie’s’ and ' ei’s’.” Henry: " If you are in doubt about my spelling, use the dictionary, it is always right. I am dreadfully sorry, but there was so much static in the atmosphere that I was unable to get the lec- tures very clearly. I could not understand Prof. O’Donnell, nor what Justice Bailey was referring to. For awhile I thought it was thundering, but at last I caught the words ' de bonis non administratis because of trespass de bonis asportatis’.” Stude: " You must learn to be more painstaking. The profs will think I am becoming indifferent and negligent about my school work.” " Has the evening paper been delivered?” — " Yes, here it is, sir.” — (Scans head- lines). " Well, well, the Y.M.C.A., acting from a sense of moral uplift and social reform, has entered upon a campaign for the suppression of " SMOKERS” by students. Who cares, it’s a good idea. A lot of good boys go wrong that way during their law courses. — What’s this — " The Board of Education, after an extended executive session, posted an official notice on the bulletin board that the unsophisticated practice of chew- ing gum on the campus would henceforth be considered sufficient cause for dismissal’. — Henry, throw away that package of Wrigley’s and hand me a Lucky instead. The tele- phone ring; Henry answers. " Hello! Oh, just a moment.” Stude: " Who’s that? — It’s Miss Alexander. She wants a date Sunday evening of next week.” — " Tell her I’m out — that you will tell me when I come in. Perhaps a blond will call.” Henry: " Yes, sir.” (Repeating what was said.) P7 ?

As publishers of legal works designed solely to save the law- yer’s time and increase his efficiency, we subscribe wholeheartedly to the above statement. It has been our pleasure to serve the Bench and Bar of this country for the past 46 years, during which time we have developed what we consider to be the ideal private law library — THE ANNO- TATED REPORTS SYSTEM — which comprises the following units: American Law Reports Lawyers Reports Annotated American Decisions and Reports U. S. Supreme Court Reports, L. ed. English Ruling Cases British Ruling Cases and Ruling Case Law Each of these sets, while complete in itself, dovetails with every other unit and gives the lawyer an unbroken chain of case law from the beginning of American jurisprudence to date with com- prehensive annotations.

Ine boundaries circumscribing our Campus are imaginary — the more imagination used the better idea you will have of it. We cannot expect to make this tour in a week, and realizing the limited time, we will only be able to see a few of the points of interest. If you will promise not to ask many questions, I’ll take you on this epoch making, eye- startling journey. FIRST DAY OUT: We will hist visit the main (and only) building of our Uni- versity, customarily known in other institutions of learning as " Administration Hall’’. We approach this building from Thirteenth street, walking up a winding pathway that leads straight to the entrance, over a lawn foliated with patulous oaks (which you cannot see — the said lawn being covered with concrete) . The first person we meet is " Bill” Martin. He is NOT the Doorman. " Bill” is selling briefs to those students who are anxious to learn the law a few days prior to exams, the said anxious ones being those who sign their attendance cards downstairs. Now if you are a lady, he speaks. If you are not a lady, its, " How ’bout a date — I mean a brief?” Turning off the main corridor to the left we enter the offices of our University. This is a busy place around the first and fifteenth of every month. Of course, it could be lo ts busier without any kick from the Stockholders. Here we have " Chic” Cassin’s office, usually occupied by Mrs. Dupray, our Treasurer, the lady who takes your money with a smile — that is, if you pay. " Chic” Cassin is Assistant Dean of the Law School, his official duties being to bawl the fellows out for smoking above the first floor. Then we have " Pergy” Pergler’s den. He is Dean of the School of Economics and Govern- ment, that branch of our University that can prepare you for anything and everything if you will stick around and attend classes. In this room we have the University Postoffice. " Rascob” Rasnek is the suspected postmaster. Many students answer magazine ads, such as, " Why be a Wallflower? — Learn to play a Sax”, (on " Meggs” Bryan’s advice), and this is where the beautiful red lettered literature comes in reply. " Tony” Fletcher, the Grapefruit King, does NOT receive his FAN mail at this address. (It is only a seventh class postoffice and far from being able to handle such a deluge). " Gene” Weisbender and Harry Kay have their girls write them at this address so they will think it’s a place like Harvard or Yale, or some other such joint. Going through the west door we enter the ill-famed and illegitimate WAR COL- LEGE, the official Rogue’s Gallery of the University. Here we have pictures of former grads and members of the Faculty dating back to the period of the Renaissance, or some- where near A.D. " God knows when”. Bewhiskered and bebald gentlemen who would make a fortune nowadays advertising a good hair tonic. We see our friend " Judge” Willett in his cap and gown. Oh! My yes! He went to law school once. Manifestly so. n? ? — v ? — v ? — v ? ? ? ? -C y r Y NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL . r ? n T U Cb «0 L 0 L JT T_ [ 235 ] rJ r r -1 ? n . i Mi nor. ferO Dnr ' fraf - — v ni z. . ? rTj i a iv i i v L. V MDCCCl J JJ II V. V «- Li U u TTTr U b. d We gaze upon the figure of our distinguished Dean and present Chancellor and see him as he was back yonder before he wore size elevens and five-sixteenths. There is " Freddy’’ Siddons, our astute professor, with a mustache. Yes, that is a mustache. Around the wall on the benches we see students. Yes, they are the coming judges, attorneys, prisoners, convicts, etc., of our nation. We hear some conversing on the Turf. ( " Ed” Xmas and " Willy” Donaldson). We find " Cy” Tappy and Segaloff matching pennies again, or yet. Perhaps they have a date tonight and need some extra change for a gallon — of gasoline. On the west end of this room we see the Dean’s office. He just left in a Diamond cab (,15c initial charge) so we will not be able to see him. Leaving " Administration Hall” we go up one flight across the campus and find Lower Hall. Just why they call it that, I do not know, but Murray Crosse says its because the Freshmen meet there, and I guess he’s right. This is where the opening exercises are held and where the Dean and Judge Siddons fill you full of bunk about the advantages of studying law — for $17.00 a month (now $18.50 and subject to change without notice) . Stepping out in the corridor we see Armand DeBirny and Vernon Baker trying to pledge the same victim. There’s " Walt” Bryan coming to the front for the Sigma Delts — but the guy will finally go Alpha Eta Phi, I bet a dollar. Either that, or by Cy Pres. To our left is New Lower Hall. This is the assemblage of the Seniors, or rather, those who expect to graduate. These pictures you see hanging on the wall are of former " whatnots”. We understand that the Dean is going to put them on easels and place them down the aisle so the students will be more impressed with the history of the school. At the west end of this Hall is the Ladies’ Rest Room, where the ladies and a few co-eds rest and powder their shiny noses. This is properly termed the " Co-ed’s Bar- racks”. Either that or the Feline Club. Can you hear Sylvia telling Alice where to buy her clothes? Miss Slattery is playing " Charlie My Boy” on the piano. " Tilly” Triplette rushes out — apparently late for another party — or the same one. Going up another flight across the campus we come to Upper Hall, the home of the lofty Juniors. The bags under their eyes are caused by late hours sitting up studying Common Law Pleading and Evidence. Here is where Sigma Nu Phi hung a bronze tablet, which you see on the rear wall, commemorating some kind of anniversary. This affair was held on a SUNDAY MORNING and Cassidy announced before the Class that we need not bother about wearing our (or someone else’s) tuxedo. Therefore we went. To the south of this Hall we find the Moot Court Building. I could tell you a lot about this place but many would like to forget, so we better not mention anything about it. I recall that breach of promise case, for instance! Going to the east a bit we enter the University Law Library. As we enter we see " Ed” Aaronson and " Sally” McColligan duck their cigarettes — they thought we were Cassin. Here we find law books at least a hundred years old. The dust of the Ages proves it. Most of the students are reading — no, those are not law books. They are newspapers. Donald Brown and Baldridge are the only ones seen really studying — they are trying to figure out how their bunch lost that Senior Class election. Take a look out the front window and gaze across the land- scape. We can see into the boudoirs of the apartment house across the way. We H 4 4 — 5 4 — V 4 5 4 4 5 r 1 5 c c c c 4 — ) n NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL l O O AA U 41 c 5 “T j 1 236 ] THE WAR COLLEGE look into a Studio and see girls kicking mighty high and many a class has assembled late — and not until they have pulled the shades! Just off the third floor landing we find a very beautiful spot of our campus — the ole fire excape. Here we find groups and cliques at work. We see Armand Cyr and " Tommy” Tosesello watching the shadows in the windows across the alley. Oh yes, we have both eastern and western exposure. Arriving at the bottom of the steps and getting back into the main corridor on the first floor we see a little pair of stairs going down to the basement. Now this takes you to the " Boy’s Barracks”, where many engage in the art of literature, etc. We have not time to go there and perhaps after all the only persons we would meet would be " Meggs” Bryan, the wonder-wonder boy who speaks seven languages; " Nick” Nichols, the Insur- ance Adjuster, with his spats and cane; and " Bob” Billhimer, the Glee Club of our School. Neither are of much interest and besides they all might want to bum a fag. They have stopped smoking — their own. [ 237 ] MESS HALL Well, beings its meal time, I’ll take you to hear the boys eat. The MESS hall is right next to " Administration Hall”. I think it was put here so the Dean would not have to go very far for his coca cola. You can recognize it by the sweet aroma of cabbage. We can hardly get inside because " Joe” Vaughan and " Bill” Skeels are blocking the door playing that slot machine. (Both have a hand full of mints, so they must be winning) . Rubin and Politz are making so much noise eating their ham sandwiches that Lena can hardly hear to take orders. Here comes " Grip” Olson shak- ing hands with — nobody because everybody has better sense. (There is another kind of grip machine you put a penny in). " Bill” Medley eats in here since the Senior Class election. He spent all his money trying to get elected, so " they” say, and now its " bef stoo”. I really think its because he gave out too many five cent campaign cigars. Kieth Gaylor has been in the phone booth for the last hour trying to make connections with a girl friend and " Johnnie” Batman is eating a steak tonight. (He’s Class Treasurer). The other boys are drinking soup. Sigma Nu Phi is giving a dance, so we will go out. We will find a lot of Phi Beta Gamma boys there, because they haven’t any place to dance, and then too, its free. No, we will not find " Dave” Lynn there because of political reasons. He is dying to go but they never invite him. (Afraid he might take something besides elections, I guess). This is a rush dance for goats. Must be getting ready for another campaign. Goats rhymes with votes. We understand that is the primary purpose of initiation anyway. Being owls, this orgy will not break up until dawn. No, " Bill” Kelly is not here tonight. He is home walking the baby to sleep. SECOND DAY OUT: The Phi Beta Gamma boys are giving a big Whoopie at their " villa on the Potomac”, so we better go out and get in on the eats. (Hot dogs and creamless coffee — maybe). They are so far out in the country that when " Bill” Cann goes out he always tells his wife before leaving, " I’ll write”. The District Com- missioners would not let the boys have a house in town so they went to the suburbs. They have too many " knock-down-drag-out” affairs. Ask " Doc” Smith if that isn’t right. After wading through grass up to our necks over a road full of rocks, gullies and mud, we finally reach the villain. If you listen right hard you might hear the Potomac off in the distance. After getting inside it’s not so bad and in fact, worth the journey. The whoopie begins with a round of drinks — ice water and perhaps a little ginger ale. The boys can’t afford much. We dance by a victrola of some prehistoric model unknown to man. It must have been the inventor’s model. The piano looks good, but it don’t work either. If you don’t care to dance you will have to stand up, because " Margy” Kline is using the chair. Let’s get out of here before the cops come. This might be somebody’s birthday!!!! THIRD DAY OUT: Tonight is the Senior BrAwL. Come and " enjoin” your- self. Big dance, can’t even bump anybody. You have to look around to find yourself in such wide open spaces. Wish " Tubby” Fletcher was here so we would have a crowd. " Joe” Vaughan and Harry Kay look worried for some KNOWN reason, but when Lynn dropped in about closing time his smile became frozen when he saw the crowd and it took a chistle and an ice pick (which Billhimer had handy) to get him straight again. r C H7 j V i 7 ' V r- ■ n NATIONAL UNIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL u | u 5 [ 239 ] (They say he is personally bound on The Docket contract). From here, though very unusual, we go to Child’s on the Avenoo. The first thing I knew some guy hits our Editor on the trap, then Ray’’ Woolard wades in with a left hook to the jaw and the gong saved the day. The said editor ran around picking up his teeth and a woman screamed — still no cops. " Joe’’ Vaughan stood around and wanted to help, but as quick as a " flask” he thought he better stay out. After matters cooled down we went inside for a hot meal. Some of us had money enough, because he hadn’t paid for our dance tickets. We went on credit. Billhimer wanted to know what all the rumpus was and after being told he walked outside — thinking, of course, that National University was behind him. Before he had time to admonish the naughty bums, the birds went " tweet tweet” and the stars were shining bright! Ray” Woolard, National’s champion splinter, ran one of ’em down and turned in. After it was all over, six cops appeared. Billhimer sat tight. " Joe” pulled his overcoat tighter. In fact, everything was tight. We would take a fourth day off and go to the WAR COLLEGE SMOKER, but Freedman would " rather not hear anything more about it,” for he intends to practice law someday, and the less said about it the better. This concludes our journey and I hope you are fast asleep by this time. And have we a Campus? Oh! Yes, yes! We have a Campus, AND HOW! n q Q Q Q Q national university law school 4J, 0 cCL dJT 43 , 4 c_ □ [ 240 ] Bob ' s Back Again KLEP CONGRATS MACK LAU6H CLOWN LAV 6W SAuuY ’THE: BRiTistf nf coni«6 ' TKfc 4VD i£ TlUtfctfie Sought As Burglar j Stout (twhere the w« 5T I3E6 A 5 ' ' . fpE f r r%AN HiCKEY f«vt wT oh »» OH the i-f r ‘OPHELiA THE oL t Biu‘ £ VNN PANORAMA OF THE WORLD’S LEGAL SYSTEMS The Story of the Origin and Development of the Law — in Pictorial Form The distinguished author, Dean Wigmore, of Northwestern University, Chicago, in this work, has done for the Law what Wells in his “Outline of History” and Van Loon in “The Story of Mankind” did for these broader general subjects.

Such a review under proper guidance unifies the great mass of uncorrelated principles which the stu- dent has learned in 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 certainly not the most effective method of review.
