ANY ARE the threads that trace the Destiny of Mankind from the isolated existence of the Cave Dweller to the present Age of Enlightenment. Threads of Science — of Religion — of Educa- tion are woven into the woof and warp of the story of his struggle upward. But no force has been as powerful — no influence as great — on the molding of Mankind as has — Justice. To trace the course of Justice from its beginning — to mark its effect upon Man — to emphasize its ideals — we have constructed this 1930 Docket on the foundation of the Evolution of Justice. Cdited cui() pLibiislied by THE SEMIGR CLASS °f MATIOSiAL UMIVERSITY LAW SCHOOL hr 1930 Docket has been prepared with a view to making its real worth apparent when its readers browse through it in years to come. It is with deep appreciation that we extend our thanks to the Members of the Faculty, and the Associate Editors for their valuable aid in building this book. The Editor.

Its origin may be traced to the suggestion which was embodied by President Washington in his eighth annual message to Congress, directing the attention of that body to the advisability of establishing at the seat of the Federal Government, a National University which would provide for the “assimilation of the principles, opinions, and manners of our countrymen by the common education of a portion of our youth from every quarter.” Congress, however, did not act upon this suggestion. It was not until 1869 that Professor Wedgewood and a number of distin- guished associates endeavored to realize the high hopes for establishing such an institution of learning as Washington had in mind. Incorporated under the General Incorporation Law of the District of Columbia, the National University came into being. Although it has never been officially connected with the Federal Government, yet it was thought at the time of its organization that from this nucleus a governmental institution would eventually evolve. Later, the Congress of the United States by a special act granted a broad charter for the institution to Hon. Arthur McArthur, Hon. Richard Alvey, Hon. Charles C. Cole and their associates with full power “to grant and confer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees.” The first department of the new university to be organized was the Law School, which is now one of the oldest in the United States. It has occupied a commanding position of dignity and power among members of the legal profession of Washington and elsewhere because of the thoroughly practical character of the instruction, the excellence and high standing of the instructors, and the maturity and ambition of the student-body. The University enjoys the honor of having had as the first Chancellors, five of the Presidents of the United States, as follows : Ulysses S. Grant, Rutherford B. Hayes, James A. Garfield, Chester A. Arthur, and Grover Cleveland. More than 6,000 students have been graduated from the Law School during its existence, many of whom have attained eminence at the Bar while others have become judges of national reputation. In recognition of the growing demand for collegiate work of standard grade which would provide preparation for those who aspire to follow a business, financial or public career, and which would be correlated with the studies ofifered in the Law School, the University in the fall of 1923 opened a new department of the University known as the School of Economics and Government. This marks a new stage of expansion and growth on the part of the University and makes of the University a pioneer in a field the increasing importance of which is daily more evident. O ie DOCKET 1930 “The law should be loved a little because it is felt to be just; feared a little because it is severe ; hated a little because it is to a certain degree out of sympathy with the prevalent temper of the day ; and respected because it is felt to be a necessity.” OAe DOCKET 1930 TTital Im ADMINISTRATION 3Ae DOCKET 1930 OFFICERS OF THE UNIVERSITY Charles F.

In the fell clutch of circumstances I have not winced nor cried aloud. Under the bludgeonings of chance My head is bloody, but unbowed. Beyond this place of wrath and tears Looms but the Horror of the Shade, And yet the menace of the years Finds, and shall find me. unafraid. It matters not how strait the gate, How charged with punishments the scroll. I am the master of my fate : I am the captain of my soul.

Such is our fate. But realizing that it may seem cowardly to use the above statement as an alibi, we have concluded to ignore it, and stand wholly on our own merits, presenting our mediocre accom- plishments with a humility and modesty that may lie interpreted as you will. The class of 1930 is essentially normal. In due course, it has run through every experience that a normal university class is destined to experience. It lays no claim to being the best class that ever shall have been graduated from National University, because it knows better. It cannot claim to be the largest class that ever graduated, because it is a foregone conclusion that every class whose glories are extolled on Commencement Day is the largest that ever dawned on academic horizon. The class of 1930 cannot lay claim to being the worst class that ever gradu- ated, for its career has run true to form. That is to say, if true love never runs smooth, neither does real class spirit; for a time we had a motley of events and adversities which taught us the valuable lesson of self-adjustment for the furthering of class interest and the upholding and the extending of school spirit. But lest the public misunderstand, the class of 1930 has never failed to live up to its responsibilities. It has managed to do all things — but not all things well. All offices that needed staid and steady steersmen were satisfied. It has presented debaters, orators, rising young persons, and social leaders, in quite the approved manner. It was also able to produce a fair sprinkling of honor students. The class members in after years may doubtless forget how many honor stu- dents the class produced, or how many social affairs they had, but can never for- get the priceless friendships formed while in the class. College memories consist largely of friendships and no one can deny the fact that each member has a rich heritage of them to add to his memory’s collection. The class of 1930 is proud to have been able to serve as a more or less gray background of normalcy against which the flashing comets of more spectacular classes may loom all the brighter. When our Alma Mater calls, we will answer. We have ever tried to honor her name, cherish her traditions and be a living reality of her noble principles. The moment of farewell has come, we part. With eyes momentarily dimmed, but steadily ahead, we go out to be worthy sons and daughters of our Alma Mater. Addie A. Hughes, Historian.

Carusi aws FOR the governance of mankind have developed with the progress of the human race, and in harmony with the trend of man’s social, religious, ethical, political and intellectual evolution. To the unenlightened mind of our primeval forefathers, the forces of nature out of which they fashioned their primitive gods, were disorderly and capricious, to be feared and obeyed, their anger to be appeased by sacrifice and their good will propitiated. Law, if, in the modern sense, it existed at all, lay in a loose conformity to family and tribal usage, sanctioned by disapprobation and the vengeance of men and god s. Ancestors too, especially those notable for heroic achievement, easily grew into deities, and, as such, pro- tectors of the family and of the tribe. At the family fire-side or tribal altar the sacrificial offering was made. The burial place became sacred to the descendants, and in the exclusiveness of this spot was born perhaps the idea of semi-private ownership of land. Individual use of the implements of war and of the chase ripened into a sense of individual ownership, and the idea of private property in the modern sense is one of the early phenomena of social life. The idea of private property was, doubtless, early extended to human beings captured in war, and slavery may, in the case of female captives, have given to the relation of the sexes that element of exclusiveness which is the outstanding characteristic of the legal institution of marriage. For mutual protection and by reason of consanguinity, families grew into clans, and the religious and ethical ideas of the family became those of the tribe and customs widened into juridicial concepts resting upon reli- gion ; social forms were theocratic. Among the earlier branches of the great Aryan family were the Greeks. They had somewhat primitive gods, but were specially favored by them, in that, in the absence of any priestly caste, freedom of thought was possible to the people. The secular thought of Greece furnished future ages with all there was worthy of the name of philosophy. I he problems of man in his universe were freely ex- plored. Unfortunately it was not realized by the Greeks, with the notable excep- tion of Aristotle, that pure thought unaided 1 by scientific method leads only into the maze of metaphysical speculation. Freedom of thought led, however, to a critical examination of legal institutions and theocratic foundations, and while Greece made little contribution of permanent value to positive law, she cleared the ground and paved the way by the adoption of the theory of an ideal legal order, a natural law based upon the nature of man and the harmony of the universe. Insufficiently guided, however, by scientific knowledge, skill in dialectics was more esteemed than painstaking verification of postulated premises. Divers systems of philosophy, each with its special ethical viewpoint, arose, had its day; and wilting under the fire of critical analysis, led the Greeks into the uncreative ' field of uni ei sal skepticism. Private positive law could not grow in a city state where the individual was of concern only in his relation to and as he served the state. . Sonins of the Latin, on the contrary, lay rather in action than in spec- ulation , administrators rather than philosophers, the Romans had the temperament and racial characteristics to enable them to construct a world-wide political hege- One Hundred and Thirty ' one k)ke DOCKET 1930 mony and the world’s greatest system of public and private law. Their ethical ideas, however, were derived from Greece, with consequences of enormous im- portance in the development of law. It has taken the world twenty centuries to realize that natural law is not law at all, but “jurisprudence dans l’air.” The stoic philosophy of Greece had added the moral to the physical world in their conception of a code of nature, so that “it embraced not merely the visible cre- ation, but the thoughts, observances, and aspirations of mankind.” The Roman lawyer l elieved that the old Jus Gentium “was in fact the lost code of nature, and that the praetor in forming an edictal jurisprudence on the principles of the Jus Gentium was gradually restoring a type from which law had only departed to deteriorate.” The world still rests under the delusion that there exists a body of natural rights, pre-existing or co-existing with positive law. The main stronghold of natural law today is in the literature of international jurists. An examination of external nature negatives the existence of natural rights. Nature knows laws but nothing of rights. Rights are of human origin and represent a mode of thought. In the middle ages, theology dominated the social sciences. Scholastic dia- lectics discouraged scientific method. Natural law was no longer conceived of as the law of man’s nature in its relation to universal law, but as the will of God sacerdotally interpreted. The tendency toward secularization, was reborn with the decline of church authority, the dissolution of the empire into national states. The ancient system of positive law began again to be studied, but with the reformation religion came again to play a dominant role and for a time theology and natural law were in the ascendant, but gradually the distinction between law, religion and morality came to be understood, and the positivist view of law ap- pears, i. e., law to be regarded as a social instrument rather than as an end in itself, as a means to a secular end, to-wit, the preservation and improvement of society. No epitome of the evolution of law would be complete without some ref- erence to the English common law system. Its precise place is difficult of assign- ment by reason of the fact that the Roman law was never formally received into England. Its influence, however, upon the development of English common law and equity was undoubtedly greater than the natural pride of English jurists has permitted them to acknowledge. The social development of Rome and its world- wide dominion resulted in an elaborate system of positive law, public and private, and its formal reception in Europe molded the course of modern European juris- prudence. Roman law was secular. There are some parallels, however, between the early development of Roman law and that of English law. While the edicts and responses were the instruments in the former case, in the latter the law developed through the multiplication of ju- dicial decisions. By both processes law was made rather than discovered, but in both instances resentment against judicial legislation was allayed by resort to a fiction. The Romans postulated the existence of a reservoir of undeclared law, the so-called natural law, in accordance with which the Roman praetor legislated by edict. The English judge, in law making by case decision, insisted that he was simply announcing the pre-existing common law, of which he was therefore the discoverer rather than the originator. The parallel may be carried further in that the natural law was supposed to inhere in the common principles of the tribal laws, while the common law was supposed to have originated in the customs of the English people. With the prog- One Hundred and Thirty-two O ie DOCKET 1930 ress of the world and a greater knowledge of comparative law, the tendency is in the direction of a closer relation between the civil and the English common law systems in dealing with the novel problems of a rapidly changing civilization. The general acceptance of the evolutionary hypothesis by the nineteenth cen- tury led naturally to the historical method of study of legal phenomena. Law schools began to encourage the study of cases in their historical sequence. Com- parative law and legislation has begun to occupy the attention of scholars. If really scientific progress has been slow in bringing our legal system into harmony with the requirements of society, that has perhaps, been due to a failure to recog- nize that law as an efifective social instrument can only be scientifically developed by those who view it in its relation to the moral, economic and political interests of society. This viewpoint will not be generally approved so long as our people as a whole prefer ancient formulas and ethical conservatism to a candid acceptance of the data of experience. 4 OAe DOCKET 1930 Ah, make the most of what we yet may spend, Before we too into the Dust descend ; Dust into Dust, and under Dust to lie Sans ine, sans Song, sans Singer, and — sans End ! — Omar.

How well we remembered the terror inspired by the dire tales of woe (told us by quondam Juniors) of Common Law Pleading. But that, of course, was before we learned of the balm in Gilead — the Little Green Book. We balanced it against Shipman and Keigwin and found it not wanting. Then the intricacies of Evidence melted before the gently guiding hand of our old friend, Mr. Bastian. And what a pleasure it was to hear again about “Lawson on Contracts” — even if it was in conjunction with Burdick. Too, we renewed our acquaintance, in the study of Real Property, with the man who struggled so nobly and patiently to lead us to a better understanding of the meaning of negotiability. The new friends we have met (speaking from the audience to the rostrum) have been equally productive of pleasant associations — Equity, which has revealed many unexpected moments of frivolity under the whimsical tongue of Mr. John- son — Partnership, punctuated ' and embellished by appropriate humor. All in all, it has been a pleasant year industrially. It was indeed a difficult task to select from the five splendid candidates one to fill the office of President. After much voting and much counting, Charles H. Bair was chosen. Miss Grace Ivanode, our popular young Cy Pres President, was unanimously elected to the office of Vice-President of the Class. William E. Deering, who so generously devoted his time and ' efforts to the welfare of the class as Secretary last year, was again elected to fill that position. The class de- cided that since Guy Baden had so competently saved the class money last year, the position should again be filled by him, and his. election was unanimous. Louis Engel, powerful physically and possessing a stentorian voice, was elected to serve as Sergeant-at-Arms. Genevieve R. Pratt was unanimously chosen as Class Historian. Our social activities (plural by courtesy) took place at a dance — a magnificent success — at the Carlton. But then, our history is made mainly within the sanctum ( ?) of Upper Hall, where we have gathered nightly, with stern devotion to our future. We have many pleasant memories of events which have transpired during this, the Junior year of the Class of 1931. We have taken one more step toward the goal which each year becomes nearer and more real. Genevieve R. Pratt, Historian, Class of 1931. Maryane I. Thomas, Associate Historian, Class of 1931.

Siddons pace DOES not permit of an exhaustive treatise of such an all-important sub- ject as the one undertaken. This discussion will, therefore, be confined to the more important events that have helped to shape the constitutional history of our country. Of course, with the submission for ratification of the Constitution itself there was set in motion the wheels of political action, which was destined to play an important part in the formative stage of constitutional development. The first result achieved under the influence of political faction was the adoption of the first ten amendments, the first eight of which comprised the Bill of Rights. No one can read those Amendments, which were prepared by the First Con- gress in 1789, and were ratified by the States in 1791, without perceiving how necessary they were to supplement the instrument that came from the Constitu- tional Convention of 1787, and which was adopted in 1788. It is likewise need- less to point out the jealousy that was felt by the people of many of the states against the establishment of such a government as the one proposed, without ex- press safeguards to protect the rights of states and individuals. Such an addition would ' relate, not to the framework of the government, but to the rights of the people ; and although these rights might be said to be exposed to no danger from the exercise of the powers which the Constitution was to vest in the new gov- ernment. it was, nevertheless, considered important that some express security be extended to them. For example, the Constitution was silent on the question of religious liberty. Nor was there any express guarantee of freedom of speech, or of the press. It is interesting to note that Hamilton was opposed to the passage of the so- called Bill of Rights. In his Federalist, he defined the Rights as being “in their origin stipulations between kings and their subjects, abridgements, of prerogative in favor of privilege, reservations of rights not surrendered ' to the prince.” His analogy did not, however, fully illustrate the question respecting the express res- ervations of particular rights. These were not to lie stipulations between king and subjects, but declaratory and restraining instruments, laying the government of the United States under prohibitions in addition to those contained in the Constitution itself. The whole tenor of the Bill of Rights, taken in the light of contempor- aneous history, show that they had their inception in the fear that in the powers granted by the Constitution to the Federal Government the safety of the people had not been sufficiently guarded. Construed ' in this wise by the Supreme Court, it has been repeatedly held by that body that these Amendments are not to be considered as limitations on the powers of the States or their people. By par- ticular reference to the Tenth Amendment every State remains a self-governing political community, in respect to its. own inhabitants, in every relation in which those inhabitants are not by the Constitution placed under the authority of the Federal Government. As an outgrowth of the discussions that arose over the adoption of these Amendments there developed ' two political parties, divided on the question of whether strict or liberal construction should be given the Constitution. Hamilton, One Hundred and Forty-three Oke DOCKET 1930 m the man to whom Congress turned with the great problems of national finance, became the leader of the liberal constructionists. It was the purpose of this party to find in the Federal Government the authority to do anything not expressly prohibited by the Constitution itself. Those who belonged to that party adopted the name of ' ‘Federalists. " The reader will remember that in the Constitutional Convention the term “Federalist " was applied to those who favored the contin- uance of government under the Articles of Confederation. With the contro- versy over the adoption of the Constitution, its friends appropriated the name to themselves, thus reversing its signification. 1 homas Jefferson became the leader of the strict constructionists, whose members were known as Anti-Federalists. The party was composed of the states- rights people, who sought to restrain the powers of the Federal Government to those expressly granted to it by the Constitution, and to retain in the States the powers not so delegated. 1 here ensued a determined struggle between these two parties which helped to shape the constitutional history of our country to a very high degree. In the formative stages of our new government was laid the foundation for the exercise of power by the Federal Government that has endured down to the present. This struggle began in earnest when the proposal was made by Hamilton in 1790 that Congress establish the Bank of the United States. A constitutional objection was at once raised by the Anti-Federalists, who asserted that for Congress to create a bank would be to create a corporation, and that no express authority to create a corporation had been delegated to the Federal Government by the Constitution ; that being a government of enumerated powers, the one in question was neces- sarily prohibited. It was answered by the Federalists that Congress did have the power under the Constitution “to make all laws which shall be necessary and proper for carrying into execution " the powers that it conferred; that the creation of a bank was useful as an agency to promote or render convenient the execution of the powers delegated to the United States; that it was therefore within the implied powers of Congress to establish the bank. The latter argument prevailed, and the bank was chartered by Congress. Twenty-five years later, in the cele- brated case of McCullough vs. Maryland, the constitutionality of the act creating it was sustained by the Supreme Court. Chief Justice Marshall, of whom more will be said later, laid down the following principle of construction : “Let the end be legitimate, let it be within the scope of the Constitution, and all means which are appropriate, which are plainly adapted to that end, which are not prohibited, but consistent with the letter and spirit of the Constitution, are constitutional.” From the administration of W ashington to that of Jefferson the liberal con- structionists held sway, and during that period the functions of the new govern- ment were put into successful operation under the wisdom of Hamilton’s direction and supervision. The financial policy had been developed ; revenues were collected with certainty and regularity ; the executive departments were organized and in systematic operation ; and the courts were discharging their functions. Commerce had increased, new enterprises were undertaken, and. in short, the countrv had started into its first era of prosperity. Of course, during this time animosities growing out of party rivalry were intense, and the Second Congress was greatlv distracted by dissensions. W ith the election of Jefferson, however, and the coming into power of the Anti-Federalists, the factional disputes that had almost resulted in disunion were abated. The great period of construction under Hamilton was followed by some One Hundred and Forty-four 2 he DOCKET 1930 sixty years of comparative inactivity under the regime of the strict construc- tionists founded by Jefferson. Congress, however, was not the only body that was actively interpreting the Constitution during this formative stage of our Government. The framers of the Constitution would have been justly subject to the reproach of devising a system fraught with the causes of its own destruction, if they had not also devised a tribunal to settle the contentions which the system was sure to generate. The ju- diciary department was intended to furnish such a tribunal. In the beginning its opportunity and influence was slight ; its place in the government feeble and inconsequential. It was overshadowed in the early years of the government by the immediate, active and dominant influence of the other departments. But today, as we look back over the course that our constitution has taken under the inter- pretation of that body, it is plain that we are largely indebted to the Supreme Court for our continued existence as. a nation, and for the harmony, stability, excellence and success of our federal system. No individual has played such an important part in the constitutional history of our country than a member of that court, who served from 1801 to 1835. That man was Chief Justice John Marshall, of whom it is not unjust to say that he established the principles of our national system of government, and laid the foundation of American constitutional law. The fate of that government hung in the balance in a number of the cases that came before him for decision. His presentation of principles in the so-called “constitutional decisions’’ shine among the most brilliant achievements of American statesmen during the first half of our national government. Not one of those principles has been abandoned or reversed by the Supreme Court, and they have established for posterity the work- ing propositions of republican government that are now considered fundamental. From the time of Marshall down to the present time, the Supreme Court has been a recognized factor in the development of our constitutional history. It is the authoritative exponent of the principles underlying the Constitution. In 1855 the Constitution was about to undergo its. severest test. The slave question had reached an ominous and 1 significant stage, and the decision of the Supreme Court in the Dred Scott case added fuel to the flames of sectional dis- sension. By that decision the South was triumphant, and the anti-slavery men of the North were outraged and injured. The questions concerning slavery in the admission of new states then pending were given additional bitterness. With the election of Lincoln saw the secessions of the eleven Southern States and the Civil ar. The Thirteenth Amendment was ratified in 1865 to give a post-war effect to the Emancipation Proclamation, which was acclaimed by the Abolitionists as the true object of the Civil War. Slavery w r as thereby constitutionally ended and the Dred Scott decision superceded. The Fourteenth and Fifteenth Amendments followed in quick succession conferring, the right of citizenship and suffrage on the negro, with results that at first were alarming. With the advent into the South of the “carpet-baggers” the offices under the Federal Government were attained by unscrupulous means, but with the declining of hostile feelings between the North and South, this condition was gradually abated, and the country started on that great period of reconstruction. Bv reason of the tremendous industrial progress of the country which fol- lowed Congress was soon confronted with the ever increasing problem of trans- One Hundred and Forty ' five T O ie DOCKET 1930 portation and interstate commerce. Exercising the power conferred by the Con- stitution in the commerce clause, Congress, in 1887, passed the first Interstate Commerce Law, which laid the foundation for many similar enactments, including the Sherman Law of 1890, which was aimed at combinations in restraint of inter- state trade and commerce. By far the greater part of the moulding of our constitutional history took place up to this period, and while in comparative modern times we have seen thou- sands of laws enacted by Congress and hundreds of decisions in the Supreme Court of the Lmited States, nevertheless, those laws and decisions are to a very large degree based upon the precedents set us by those laws and decisions which we have already considered. Perhaps the strongest and most effective theory of construction of that great instrument is that ascribed to it by Chief Justice Chase of the Supreme Court, in 1868, when he said : “The constitution in all its pro- visions, looks to an indissoluble Union composed of indestructible States.” One Hundred and Forty-six O . ke DOCKET 1930 The of Intercession FRESHMEN O te DOCKET 1930 Success “He has achieved success who has lived well, laughed often and loved much ; who has gained the respect of intelligent men and the love of little children ; who has filled his niche and accom- plished his task ; who has left the world better than he found it, whether by an improved poppy, a perfect poem or a rescued soul ; who has never lacked appreciation of earth’s beauty or failed to express it ; who has looked for the best in others and given the best he had; whose life was an inspiration; whose memory is a benediction.” One Hundred and Forty-eight OAe DOCKET 1930 Class of 1932 OFFICERS Harold E.

Nearly three hundred strong and quite unfamiliar with the course which we were to pur- sue we felt that we needs must have at the helm a captain who would 1 steer our ship through the legal storms to follow. Followed then a campaign rivalling that which preceded the Presidential election of 1928. Nominations were made and for a few weeks “politics” was the order of the day. Elections over, we found an able seaman and navigator presiding, Harry Schilz. Other officers elected were: Wellington McNichols, Vice-President; Anna Carte, Secretary; Virginia Stan- ford, Treasurer; Charles Swann, Sergeant-at-Arms, and Irene Lipscomb, His- torian. Later Miss Mary Bigos was appointed to fill the office of Secretary, due to Miss Carte’s withdrawal from school. Being susceptible humans we soon fell prey to the evils of the forest of knowledge — termed our first year. And, as a vaccination takes — or doesn’t, so it was with us by the end of the first term. Some of us felt woozy, others wobbly, and a lot of us downright sick when examinations rolled around. We felt even worse after a dose of “damnum absque injuria.” But it is “an ill wind that blows nobody good” and so examination safely over, March 1, ushered 1 in our first social triumph as Freshmen. Due to the en- thusiasm and diligence of Wellington McNichols and his associates our Freshman dance was a glorious success. The good ship “Freshman” has safely weathered the second term exams and bravely has started on the third and last lap of the journey of the year. The completion of this voyage marks an epoch in the lives of each of us. who is seeking a better knowledge of the law and may it find us more zealous than before. Shall we ever strive until our cry of “Excelsior” is echoed back by the rounded sides of that great welkin as we struggle towards the greatest heights known to man — success in life!

Lambert V_ hat eminent English Jurist, Lord Coke, tells us that everyone ought to know a little law, yet we often hear that knowing only a little law is a dangerous thing. In general, the term law means a rule of human action and directs us to the rational as against the irrational. Man is a creature endowed with reason and free will, and the law is a sub- ject everyone is charged with knowing but in fact no one knows completely. It is classed as the perfection of reason based on common sense. But, alas, how lamentably few are gifted with a degree of common sense enabling them to so conduct themselves as to protect their own rights without trespassing upon the rights of others. 1 he law draws the line between barbarism and civilization. It protects the weak from the strong and insures all our property rights. It is the bulwark upon which Republics endure. The Emperor Justinian, that great founder and ' expounder of Roman civil law reduced the principles of law to three : FIRSTLY : THAT WE SHOULD LIVE HONESTLY. SECONDLY: THAT WE SHOULD HURT NOBODY. THIRDLY: THAT WE SHOULD GIVE EVERYONE HIS DUE. Were it possible for human nature to abide by these ideal principles without the compelling force of courts and police, perfect conditions would exist ! Starting, however, with intent to square as nearly as possible human con- duct to these ideals, our forefathers evolved customs and usages of the people of England from time immemorial coupled with words of wisdom from the lips of jurists of early days into what you have often heard referred to as the COMMON LAW. This means that great body of law termed “The Common Law of Eng- land. This was intended to, and did, prescribe rules of civil conduct command- ing what was right and prohibiting what was wrong. Under this law the early Colonies developed and our original thirteen states prospered. ashington, Madison, Franklin and Randolph had this to guide them in creating our imperishable constitution, which has proven so well constructed that up to the present it forms the foundation of all our federal jurisprudence ex- pressed by statutes from time to time enacted by Congress. ■Now there is another recognized law which we all have within our breasts, called the CODE OF CONSCIENCE, which tells us what is right and wrong. These judgments are infallible and the decrees are never silent. When followed there is no necessity for resort to either COMMON or STATUTORY LAW. But to revert to human law, from which has sprung our Courts, jury system and attorneys, of this it has been facetiously and aptly said that it is the nature of this law to contribute only to the happiness of lawyers. The Court, meaning a tribunal presided over bv a learned Judge, is vested with power to enunciate legal rules and precedents applicable to the instant trial. OAe DOCKET 1930 The Judge, however, is without authority to decide any question of fact aris- ing from the evidence. This right belongs solely to the Common law jury of twelve men, characterized as composed of a cross-section of humanity, because it is taken from men in all walks of life. No cause is terminated until all issues of fact have been unanimously de- cided by such a jury. Should a jury fail to agree upon a finding on the facts then the Court may declare a mistrial and a new trial of the facts involved is required before another jury. This same procedure is designed to apply to the trial of both civil and crim- inal causes. By the nature of things alongside the Common law of England there devel- oped what is known as Equity Jurisprudence, a system of law evolved to meet conditions that appealed to the conscience of the Chancellor designed to alleviate any harshness in the principles of the COMMON LAW. This branch of law gives us the right to ask a Chancellor for an injunction against wrongful conduct complained of where a rule of law is wanting to give relief. So valuable were the distinctions between these two forms of law that our forefathers in writing the constitution recognized them. So that in all federal jurisdictions the Courts are clothed with power to administer the Common Law as well as the law of Equity. It is Courts of Equity that have been found especially valuable in connection with recent Legislation, to meet unusual and progressive conditions in modern business life that could not have been foreseen by the Judges of the early days. For illustration, we naturally think of the Sherman Anti-Trust Legislation, designed to destroy objectionable trusts which were charged with stifling compe- tition and the writ of injunction became necessary to efifectuate the purpose of the law. So also it has to be invoked to carry out the highly artificial laws recently enacted to enforce the Eighteenth Amendment to the Constitution through the medium of the Enabling Volstead Act when efifort is made for instance to enforce the padlocking provision of that act. In some cases principles of Common Law have been found to be out of har- mony with certain conditions so that Congress as well as State Legislatures have from time to time enacted laws out of harmony with the philosophy of the old law. This is the inevitable evolution of the law which is required to keep pace with the spirit and conditions of the time. Usually, however, it will be found that such statutes are liberally construed by the Courts and the Common Law is left intact except so far as a particular statute may directly repeal or modify that law. This is illustrated by instances of new fields for the application of the law which have happened in recent years where rights are to be determined regarding the negligent operation of aeroplanes or automobiles, the Courts draw upon the reasoning and principles of the Common Law to render fair decisions. In Courts of Chancery the Judges without juries grant relief considering both issues of law and fact where no effective law or statute is found to govern. To tritely illustrate this, professionally the lawyer says Equity follows the law but never grants relief when there is an adequate and complete remedy at law. It is. however, in the application of the JURY System to the Criminal Law that we find the most attractive features of human interest. This branch of the law is inseparable from the jury, as no man can be deprived of the right under a One Hundred and Fifty -six criminal indictment to be tried by a jury. It is HERE that the honor and liberty of man is dealt with, HERE that the accused has the priceless safeguard of the presumption of innocence until facts are elicited ' sufficient to convince each of these twelve jury men — a jury of his peers — sitting in that jury box, of his GUILT beyond a Reasonable doubt. Of this doubt, the Supreme Court of the United States has held that affirmative evidence of previous good character alone may be sufficient to justify a jury in entertaining such a doubt and in rendering a verdict of Acquital. It is THEN and not until THEN that the Common Law of England, which is the foundation of our CHERISHED AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE, permits the word “Felon” to be stamped upon the brow of the highest or humblest citizen of this OUR REPUBLIC, THE UNITED STATES OF AMERICA. 1 O te DOCKET 1930 1 The School of Economics and Government FACULTY CHARLES 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 re- sponsibility 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.

Munter cr V he importance of having included in the curriculum of the University a course on Practice and Procedure has been recognized by the Chancellor for a number of years, but it was only three years ago that our institution, prior to any other local law school, took the initiative and offered the law students of Wash- ington an opportunity for the first time in the history of legal education to get practical experience and application prior to admission to the Bar. The course on Practice and Procedure has been a distinct success from the very beginning and students have been materially benefited by the course. Together with their aca- demic learning they have rounded out their education by this practical contact with the various Courts and official and semi-official personnel of the same. As Bar Examinations are being made more and more difficult and are based upon modern questions more than in past years, it immediately becomes apparent that no student can afford to disregard this course in his work at school. The course in Practice and Procedure has the same relation to the rest of the studies that a field course has in geology or electrical engineering. One may know all about the theories of these subjects but without actual field work such knowledge would be of little use. The courts in Practice and Procedure enables the student to become familiar with the actual mechanics in the preparation and filing of pleadings and other legal documents. We learn when and how to file such papers and how they can be pre- sented to the Court. Of particular interest to the criminal lawyer is the annual visit to the Washington Asylum and Jail and other places of confinement, where he is given an opportunity to actually use his theoretical knowledge in effecting the prompt release of prisoners. For those who have a preference for real estate or corporation law we have the visits to the Office of the Recorder of Deeds and the title companies where opportunity is given for actual participation in the handling of some case. It is particularly gratifying to the faculty and a distinct compliment to the Chancellor that since National University Law School has taken the initiative in this direction certain other local institutions have followed in our footsteps and have also added such a course to their scholastic requirements. 4 O ie DOCKET 1930 Graduate School CLASS OF 1930 Baradi, Mauro Bartoo, Robert J.

A lawyer may be popular, but the man of property wants security. If a lawyer can sing, let him sing; but the man in jail wants freedom. There is some advantage in being a joiner, but the greatest advantage lies in being a sound lawyer. Where one was a child one is always a child, except in a growing city. It is better to starve doing what one likes than to die of boredom. No Portia ever asked, “Should I practice first and marry afterward?” Look rather to the character of your associates than to what they offer you. There is little hardship for him who keeps his work up and his expenses down. If you resist starvation ten years, they will count you a lawyer. It gives a novice courage, first to learn how little he knows, in order to learn how little other lawyers know. Excess of ego takes a multitude of forms. If you can not close your case, you will seldom have a fee. Professional generosity is a characteristic of the Bar. Lawyers fight to find the truth, others only to dig a little. The law identifies itself with the affairs of the man, the community, the state, the nation, and with international affairs.

The average law graduate has little, if any, knowledge concerning the establishment of claims against national banks in receivership, and generally has to educate himself in relation thereto when he is called upon to prepare and file such a claim. Hence, I have prepared the following brief discussion of some of the outstanding general principles concerning such claims in the hope that the same may be helpful to you as an introduction to the subject and as a basis of making your task easier, if, during the course of your practice, you have occasion either to represent the receiver of a national bank or to prosecute a claim against the receivership.

DISCUSSION ' receiver for a national bank may be appointed by the Comptroller of the Currency of the United States either on the ground of insolvency (which is most frequently the occasion for the appointment of a receiver) or for violation of certain provisions of the national banking laws (Sec. 1, Act of June 30, 1876, 19 Stat. L. 63, U. S. C., Title 12, Sec. 191 ; U. S. R. S. Secs. 5141, 5191, 5201, 5205, 5208, and 5234, U. S. C. Title 12, Secs. 54, 141-143, 83, 55, 501, 591 and 192). The assets of such a bank are then liquidated 1 by the receiver under the direction of the Comptroller of the Currency, for the primary purpose of settling the claims of creditors, in accordance with the procedure prescribed by U. S. R. S., secs. 5234, 5235 and 5236 (U. S. C., Title 12, Secs. 192, 193 and 194). Such liquidation is not under the supervision of either the state or Federal Courts, and is purely ad- ministrative in character (Kennedy vs. Gibson, 8 Wall. 498; Altman vs. McClin- tock, et al, 20 Fed. (2) 226; Hulse vs. Argetsinger, 12 Fed. (2) 933; In Re Earle, 92 Fed. 22 ; Snohomish County vs. Puget Sound National Bank, 81 Fed. 518), although Section 5234 U. S. R. S. does provide that sales of assets of, or compromises of debts due to, the receiver, shall be “upon the order of a court of competent jurisdiction.” (Incidentally it may be emphasized that such an order is essential to the passage of legal title to the asset, and to the validity of the com- promise so obtained, and the purchaser and his abstractor, in the case of a sale, and the debtor in the case of a compromise, should insist upon the record being complete in that respect). The creditor makes application for allowance of his claim upon a printed form provided by the receiver, and if the same is approved a Receiver’s Certificate is issued and subsequent dividends will be based upon such certificate. If the claim is disallowed the creditor may file suit in either a state or a Federal Court to establish his claim, but the judgment can do no more than establish the claim, and no execution can issue against the receiver, payment being a matter vested in the administrative discretion of the Comptroller. (Earle vs. Penn. 178 U. S. 449; Merrill vs. National Bank of Jacksonville, 75 Fed. 148; Allen vs. United States, 285 Fed. 678). DOCKET 1930 If such suit is filed in the State Court, the receiver has the right to remove the same to the Federal Court (regardless of diversity of citizenship or of the amount in controversy) on the ground that it is a suit arising under the laws of the United States of which the Federal District Court is given original jurisdiction, in that it is a suit involving the winding up of the affairs of a national bank (U. S. C., Title 28, Secs. 71 and 41, par. 16; Studebaker Corporation vs. First National Bank of Florence, et al. 10 Fed. (2) 590; Larabee Flour Mills vs. First National Bank, 13 Fed. (2) 330. Hence, ordinarily, the claimant will save time and expense by filing suit in the first instance in the Federal Court, inasmuch as receivers are under standing instructions to remove all such cases to the Federal Courts. Section 5235 U. S. R. S. (U. S. C., Title 12, Sec. 193) requires a public notice to be given to creditors for a period of three consecutive months, “calling on all persons who may have claims ” against such bank to make proof of claim, and consequently creditors have at least such minimum period within which to file application for proof of claim. However, at any time after the expiration of such period of public notice the Comptroller may, through the receiver, under the pro- visions of Section 5236 U. S. R. S. (U. S.C., Title 12, Sec. 194) make a “ratable dividend on all such claims as may have been proved to his satisfaction or adjudicated in a Court of competent jurisdiction, and, as the proceeds of such association are paid over to him, (he) shall make further dividends on all claims previously proved or adjudicated In view of the foregoing it is considered that it is important that the creditor prove his claim within the period of public notice, or at least prior to the time the Comptroller is ready to declare a dividend, as otherwise the creditor will have to await further collections by the receiver, and it may be that such subsequent collections will not be sufficient to pay the creditor who has deferred proving his claim the same amount of dividends paid to creditors previously proving their claims. If the claimant is indebted ' to the bank at suspension, the mutual debts and credits thus existing between the bank and the claimant are subject to set off at the demand of either party. Such debits and credits, in order to be subject to set off, must exist as of suspension (although not necessarily due at suspension; Scott vs. Armstrong, 146 U. S. 499), and they must be mutual in character (Scott vs. Armstrong, supra; Yardley vs. Clothier, 51 Fed. 506; Williams vs. Rose, 218 Fed. 898). For instance, an executor or trustee or agent, cannot set off his deposit carried in his representative capacity, against a debt due from him to the bank in his individual capacity (Federal Reserve Bank vs. Early, Receiver, 30 Fed. (2) 198; National Bank vs. Insurance Company, 104 U. S. 54; United States vs. Na- tional Bank, 73 Fed. 379; Morse on Banks and Banking, 6th Ed. Sec. 334). The assessment due from a shareholder of an insolvent bank in receivership is not such a debt as will be subject to set off by such shareholder against a deposit or other debt due him by the bank, and 1 in such case he must pay his assessment in full and take payment of his claim on a parity with other general creditors, in the form of ratable dividends (Williams vs. Rose, 218 Fed. 898; Wingate vs. Orchard, 75 Fed. 241; Morse on Banks and Banking, 6th Ed., Vol. 1, pg. 788). However, on principle, where such shareholder has a preferred or secured claim against the bank to which he is entitled to full payment, the right of set off would seem to exist, inasmuch as he woul d ' be receiving no greater preference or ad- vantage than that to which he would be entitled under the law. (Welles vs. Stout, 38 Fed. 807). Frequently the creditor’s claim is based upon collection items (checks, drafts, etc.) forwarded by a correspondent bank to the receivership bank, before suspen- One Hundred and Seventy OAe DOCKET 1930 sion, for collection and remittance, and suspension of the receivership bank occurs after collection but before remittance to the correspondent bank is completed. In such cases controversial questions arise as to the right of the correspondent bank to set off the amount of the unremitted items against any indebtedness owing by the correspondent bank to the suspended bank at the time of suspension. If the correspondent bank received the collection items from its depositors on such terms tha ' it became the owner of the items (City of Douglas vs. Federal Reserve Bank 271 U. S. 489), the correspondent bank undoubtedly has the right to set off the amount of said items against any money which it owes the suspended bank, inas- much as the suspended bank owes the amounts of the items to the correspondent bank as soon as it collects the same, and consequently mutuality of debits and credits exists at suspension. On the other hand, if the correspondent bank receives the items from its depositors merely as an intermediate forwarding and collecting agent, it would seem clear, on principle, that the suspended bank, upon collection of the items, does not owe the amounts thereof to the correspondent bank, but to the depositors of the correspondent bank who are the owners of the items, and consequently said depositors would be the real claimants against the suspended bank, and the correspondent bank could receiv e payment for the items only as the agent of its depositors. Therefore it would seem to follow, in such case, upon principles already discussed, that the correspondent bank cannot set off the amount due it as agent against the amount which it owes the suspended bank in its indi- vidual capacity, as there would not be mutuality of debits and credits between the two banks. This is the position taken in what is believed to be the latest case on the question (Federal Reserve Bank vs. Early, Receiver, 30 Fed. (2) 198; affirmed by the Supreme Court March 12, 1930, 74 L. Ed. 332), where it was held that the Reserve Bank, as agent of its depositors, could not set off the amount due it as forwarding agent of collection items against money it owed the suspended bank in its individual capacity for the cash surrender value of membership stock owned by the suspended bank ; but the court did permit the Reserve Bank to charge the reserve deposit balance of the suspended bank with the amount of the unremitted collection items, on the ground that a special contract existed among the parties granting the right to the Reserve Bank, in favor of its depositors as the owners of the items, to charge the reserve deposit. The determination of the question thus depends upon the facts in the particular case. See also Federal Reserve Bank vs. First National Bank, 277 Fed. 300, and Storing vs. First National Bank, 28 Fed. (2) 587, allowing the deposit of the suspended bank to be charged. It is believed, however, that these latter cases are distinguishable from the Early case, supra. Theoretically the creditor’s claim against the bank, even though it was non- interest bearing before suspension, bears interest from the date of suspension of the bank, inasmuch as the suspension of the bank is tantamount to a demand for payment and the deposit (or othef debt) then becomes overdue; but no one creditor can collect interest to the prejudice of the other creditors (Merchants ' National Bank vs. School District, 94 Fed. 705; White vs, Knox, 111 U. S. 784; Richard- son vs. Louisville Banking Co., 94 Fed. 442; Poisson vs. Williams, 15 Fed. (2) 582; Sexton vs. Drefus, 219 U. S. 339), and interest will be paid only where there are available funds to pay all creditors both principal and interest. The National Banking Laws contain no provisions for the allowance of pre- ferred claims against suspended 1 national hanks, but on the contrary Section 5236 U. S. R. S. provides, as already indicated, that the Comptroller shall make a “ratable dividend” upon the established claims. The allowance of preferred claims, as distinguished from the claims of general creditors, is the result of court OAe DOCKET 1930 decisions, and is based upon the theory that the assets in the hands of the receiver embrace property belonging to the preferred claimant, title to which had never vested in the bank and which, therefore, the bank had been holding in trust. For example, a bank may have received money for a specific purpose, or may have received items for collection and remittance, as distinguished from receiving the funds or the items on deposit, as a consequence of which it would be considered that title did not vest in the bank. Hence, under the foregoing theories, the Comp- troller, in the liquidation of an insolvent national bank, proceeds to make a ratable distribution of the proceeds of such of the assets as are available for the benefit of general creditors, but such property as may be identified or allocated as belong- ing to a preferred claimant is delivered to him, such delivery consisting of either the specific property so identified, or such funds in lieu thereof as were derived from said specific property, assuming that said funds were added to the general assets of the bank and had not been dissipated by the bank prior to suspension and were, consequently, taken over by the receiver. From the foregoing it may be noted that three elements must exist as the basis of a preferred claim against a suspended national bank : (a) A trust relationship between tbe suspended bank and tbe claimant. (b) Augmentation of the assets, of the bank as a result of the trust relation- ship, whereby the bank acquired actual funds (as distinguished from the making of mere bookkeeping entries) constituting tbe property of tbe claimant; (c) The tracing of such funds to the assets taken over by the receiver at suspension. (See Beard vs. Independent District, 88 Fed. 375; Empire State Surety Com- pany vs. Carroll County, 194 Fed. 593; Farmers National Bank vs. Prihble, 15 Fed. (2) 175). It has been held that the burden of proof is upon the preferred claimant to establish his claim. (Schuyler vs. Littlefield, 232 U. S. 707). The question of whether or not a preferred claim exists must be determined by the application of the Federal statutes and the Federal decisions, inasmuch as state statutes and decisions attempting to create a preference claim cannot encroach upon, or interfere with the plan of liquidation of national banks contemplated by Congress. (First National Bank vs. Missouri, 263 U. S. 640; Davis vs. Elmira Savings Bank, 161 U. S. 275; Easton vs. Iowa, 188 U. S. 220; Cook County National Bank vs. United States, 107 U. S. 445; Palo Alto County vs. Ulrich, 201 N. W. 132; First National Bank vs. Selden, 120 Fed. 212). The rights of a secured creditor of a suspended national bank are substantially different from the rights of a secured creditor in bankruptcy proceedings. In bankruptcy cases tbe secured creditor is required to apply the actual or estimated liquidation value of the collateral or security as a credit upon the amount of his claim, and is permitted to prove a claim for the balance only, and will therefore receive dividends only upon the amount of his claim as so reduced (U. S. C. Title 11, Sec. 93; In Re Davison, 179 Fed. 750; In Re Rudd, 180 Fed. 312). In na- tional bank receiverships, however, the secured creditor is permitted to prove the full amount of his claim without giving credit at that time for the actual or esti- mated ' liquidation value of the security, and is entitled to receive dividends upon the full amount of the claim, regardless of the security, until such time as. the dividends so received, plus the proceeds of such security as may have been actually liquidated, will pay off the claim in full, at which time the surplus, if any, of the security, will be delivered to tbe receiver. (Merrill vs. National Bank of Jackson- ville, 173 U. S. 131 ; Sexton, Trustee vs. Dreyfus, 219 U. S. 339). One Hundred and Seventy-two O ie DOCKET 1930 If the Comptroller becomes satisfied that the assets will not be sufficient to pay all creditors in full he may, under Section 5234 U. S. R. S. levy an assessment to enforce the shareholders’ liability imposed by Section 5151 U. S. R. S. as amended by Section 23 of the Act of December 23, 1913 (U. S. C. Title 12, Secs. 63, 64), whereby such shareholders are made individually responsible “for all con- tracts, debts and engagements of such association each to the amount of his stock therein, at the par value thereof, in addition to the amount invested in such stock.” Such shareholder may be required to pay such assessment to the full extent of the par value of the stock held by him, instead of merely paying a pro rata amount, but such stockholder has a right of contribution from the other stockholders. (First National Bank in Eureka vs. First National Bank of Eureka, 14 Fed. (2) 129). The levy of such assessment is discretionary with the Comptroller, and where he does not make an assessment the creditors have the right to enforce shareholders liability by a bill in equity under Section 2 of the Act of June 30, 1876 (U. S. C. Title 12, Sec. 65. See Wyman vs. Wallace, 201 U. S. 230, and other cases cited in Volume 12 U. S. C. A. pg. 146 et seq). The Comptroller (or the creditors and shareholders, where the Comptroller fails to act), may take appropriate action also against the officers and directors of the suspended bank to compel reimbursement, for the benefit of creditors, of all losses of the bank caused by knowing violations of the National Banking laws or by negligence and improper conduct, in the course of management of the affairs of the bank. (Briggs vs. Spaulding, 141 U. S. 132; Corsicana National Bank vs. Johnson, 251 U. S. 68; Bates vs. Dresser, 251 U. S. 524; Bowerman vs. Flamner, 250 U. S. 504; Rankin vs. Cooper, 149 Fed ' . 1010; White vs. Thomas, 37 Fed. (2) 452). When all creditors who have duly established their claims have been paid in full, the receivership may be closed, and the surplus of assets is distributed to the shareholders, of the suspended bank in accordance with the provisions of Section 3 of the Act of June 30, 1876, U. S. C. Title 12, Section 197). George P. Barse. 4 O ie DOCKET 1930 The Savant How glibly he speaks of contingent remainders, Choses in action, true bills, and attainders, Estates in fee simple, estates in fee tail, Habeas corpus, and also blackmail ; The doctrine cy pres to him is no bunk, He even discourses ’bout nunc pro tunc, Feme sole and feme covert ’thout any compunction Then tells all about the writ of injunction, Both pendente lite and final decree, And homicides of every degree ; Res ipsa loquitur, then he will venture, Estoppel, hereditaments, also indenture ; Shelley’s rule is familiar to him, And grounds for attachment he gives with a vim, And grounds for replevin and also divorce, Easy as falling off from a horse; Certiorari and quo warranto, Quantum meruit and accounts pro tanto, Specific performance, trover, conversion, Proceedings in rem, assumpsit, reversion ; But most remarkable, I must disclose, The canons of legal ethics he knows.

The result of those efforts is most gratifying. It stands ready at all times to aid women in the study of law, and to encourage any movement for the benefit of mankind, and is particularly interested in the removal of restrictions against women in the professions. While the primary purpose of the sorority is to further its members interests in the field of law, yet it includes in its activities many occasions for happy social enjoyment.

It may even be that I have been a little in his favor, on we never hear his side. We have none but the evidence for the prosecution, and account of his not having a fair show. All religions issue Bibles against him, but yet we have rendered the verdict. To my mind this is irrgular. It is un-English, it is un-Amrican. Of course, Satan has some kind of a case, it goes without saying. It may be a poor one, but that is nothing; that can be said about any of us. As soon as I can get the facts I will undertake his rehabilitation myself, if I can find an impolite publisher. It is a thing which we ought to do for anybody who is under a cloud. We may not pay him reverence, for that would be indiscreet, but we can at least respect his talents. A person who has for untold centuries maintained the impos- ing position of spiritual head of four-fifths of the human race, and political head of the whole of it, must be granted the possession of executive abilities of the loftiest order. In his large presence the other popes and politicians shrink to mid- gets for the microscope. I would like to see him. I would rather see him and shake him by the tail than any other member of the European Concert. O ie DOCKET 1930 LO U I S tNGLe Sergexr.t it Arms DAVID 5IM0NS Vi ce - F r e s 1 d e n t G€OR.G 6 W.

Tolson Publicity ✓ore than nine years have passed since that small group of Master Masons conceived the idea of establishing, within the halls of National University, an or- ganization founded upon those fundamental principles of Brotherly Love, Relief, and Truth. There were only twenty men, 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 Univer- sity. 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 en- counters 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. One Hundred and Ninety ' Seven CLAR6NC6 B W6156 CUARL6S W.

Notwithstanding our small membership, we feel that much has been ac- complished this year in promoting friendly relations and mutual understand- ing with the student body of this University. It may be interesting to mention that two Filipino graduates of this in- stitution, members of the 1905 Class, are now prominent in Philippine public life. They are Hon. Filemon E. Perez, member of the Philippine Cabinet, and Hon. Antonio C. Torres, President of the Municipal Board of the City of Manila. Other Filipino graduates of earlier years are doing creditable work in private life. As in previous years, degrees will be conferred upon some of our mem- bers this year. To them we say: Godspeed and good luck! May they prove worthy of the name of their Alma Mater and of the country of their birth ! The Philippine Columbians desire to publicly acknowledge their grati- tude and appreciation for the fine college spirit and kindly attitude shown at all times by the faculty and student body to the members of our organiza- tion. The members also desire to express hereby their deep appreciation of the honors brought to the association by our President, Jose A. de Jesus, who is also President of the Filipino Club of Washington, D. C., and Vice-Presi- dent, Mauro Baradi, both members of the Philippine bar, as well as the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia and the Supreme Court of the United States. They won all the debates wherein they participated, including one against the George Washington University, and another held under the aus- pices of the “Little Congress’’ whose membership includes all secretaries of Senators and Representatives of the U. S. Congress. Mr. Baradi, besides winning the 1929 Oratorical Contest of the Filipino Club, has also prepared a digest of Cases on American Constitutional Law, which, according to a written statement of Dr. Charles Pergler, “have proved of exceptional benefit to the students in the course”.

All of these opportunities are the by-products of your daily existence. Use them, and you may find what many of the greatest concerns have found, that the real profit is in the utilization of the by-products. Among the aimless, unsuccessful or worthless, you often hear talk about ‘killing time.’ The man who is always killing time is really killing his own chances in life; while the man who is destined to success is the man who makes time live by making it useful.” Two Hundred and Six T)Ae DOCKET 1930 Choosing, Your Career By Hon. John W. Davis ou should have a good digestion, to quote a famous English chief justice, if you are to become a successful lawyer. Likewise, you need to possess real character and the industrious traits of the bee. The profession also demands an analytical mind — the ability to get at the root of a proposition and to sep- arate essentials from non-essentials. Furthermore, you must be an excellent judge of human nature and have a sound moral sense, together with the determination to work hard until you have accomplished your set task. The law is no profession for the drone or shirker. To succeed in it you have to labor and study unceasingly and to put in long hours in office and court. An old saying has it that a lawyer works hard, lives well and dies poor. There is much truth in it. You should be something of a business man to make strides in the pro- fession. Very often you will be called upon to advise clients on matters that have a decided business aspect aside from the legal. Such problems require more than mere knowledge of the law. Great Oratory Unnecessary Don’t think you have to be a great orator to succeed as a lawyer. If your reasoning powers are of high order and you have a logical mind, with the other qualifications, you will find ample satisfaction and sufficient finan- cial rewards without the gift of oratory. Some of the greatest lawyers in the country are not famed for their talents as speakers. Daniel Webster summed up the matter when he said : “The power of clear statement is the great power of the bar.” If you have the gifts of persuasion, clear and logical expression and are keen and alert, you will succed as a trial lawyer. If you lack some of these qualities, but possess other necessary traits, you might get the best results by devoting your time to office work. Long preliminary training is required of the law student nowadays be- fore he is qualified to seek admission to the bar in most States. The require- ments will become even more stringent as the years go by. Generally speak- ing, you can utilize six years of collegiate work in order to be best equipped for your career in the legal profession. Such a course, combining the cultural with the legal, will furnish you with the broad general education that is more and more being demanded of lawyers. It will equip you with a knowledge of history, philosophy, litera- ture, economics and with a broad grasp of English, provided, of course, that you are an intelligent student. With such a background your legal education will have a greater value than if you restricted your studies to the law. Those of you who can’t afford the longer course need not be discouraged. You can obtain a broad, cultural background by wide and intelligent reading. Two Hundred and Seven 04.2 DOCKET 1930 Do as much of this as you can, regardless of your preliminary education. The variety of cases that arise in the practice of law demand a knowledge of many subjects. When your law course has been completed, and you have been admitted to the bar, your next step will depend on circumstances. If you already have had practical service in a law office and have the necessary finances and pros- pects of an immediate clientele, you can start practice in your own office. Smaller Community If you intend practicing in a smaller community, where, if your oppor- tunities may be somewhat limited, your living expenses will be less and the demands put upon you physically fewer, this would be the wiser course for most of you. Outside the big cities the financial rewards at the top are not so great, but they are bigger in the intermediate stages. If it is your plan to practice law in a larger city, you would perhaps find it of advantage to enter the employ of a firm. If you have not completed the necessary clerkship it would be necessary for you to do this. You can earn on an average of $2,000 a year at the start if you can qualify for a position with one of the large city firms. You will have to be an outstanding student in college to get such an opportunity. Your future, if you make such a connection, is in your own hands. If you hang out your shingle in a smaller community you will be do- ing well if you are making expenses at the end of two or three years. How- ever, you will have a chance there to emerge sooner as a figure in public and professional affairs. Big law firms in the cities will offer you plenty of opportunity if you have ability. You will have the chance to work on cases of increasing impor- tance as you progress, whether you associate yourself with one upon finish- ing your college course or after a period of practice outside the metropolitan areas. Such an association might lead to a partnership or to an important post with a big corporation. Few of you can attain such success, but the goal and incentive are there for the capable ones. Financial Gain Secondary Don’t be induced to take up the profession by prospects of financial gain. While you will be assured of a living if you are capable, you should not enter practice unless the law appeals to you as an attractive life’s work. The profession offers you a great opportunity for public service and a gateway to public life, because you are constantly studying the problems of government. For that reason you are better equipped to deal with them than the average man in other walks of life. The practice of law furnishes a constant stimulant to your intellectual powers through the variety of demands put upon you. While you will have to do a certain amount of drudgery, you will have no dull times mentally. And that, aside from financial and recompense. other considerations, is a decided Two Hundred and Eight OAe DOCKET 1930 ACTIVITIES 4 DOCKET 1930 “The violet is much too shy, The rose too little so, I think I’ll ask the buttercup If I may be her beau.

M. L. Gassoway officiating. The groom is a popular young bum who hasn’t done a lick of work since he got shipped in the middle of his junior year at National. He manages to dress well and keep a supply of spending money because his dad ' is a soft-hearted old fool who takes up his bad checks instead of letting him go to jail where he belongs. The bride is a skinny, fast little idiot who has been kissed and handled by every boy in town since she was twelve years old. She paints like a Sioux Indian, sucks cigarettes in secret, and drinks mean corn liquor when she is out joy-riding in her dad’s car at night. She doesn’t know how to cook, sew or keep house. The house was newly plastered for the wedding and the exterior newly painted, thus appropri ately carrying out the decorative scheme, for the groom was newly plastered, also, and the bride newly painted. The groom wore a rented dinner suit over athletic underwear of imitation silk. His pants were held up by pale green suspenders. His number eight patent leather shoes matched his state in tightness and harmonized nicely with the axle- grease polish of his hair. In addition to his jag he carried a pocket knife, a bunch of keys, a dun for the ring and his usual look of imbecility. The bride wore some kind of white thing that left most of her legs sticking out at one end and her bony upper end sticking out at the other. The young people will make their home with the bride’s parents — which means they will sponge on the old man until he dies and then she will take in washing.

OAe DOCKET 1930 LEGAL ETHICS “The three main requisites of a lawyer are learn- ing, diligence, and integrity ; but the greatest of these is integrity.” Ti uo Hundred and Sixteen T)ke DOCKET 1930 d 3 Twenty-One Rules of Practice ook knowledge of law is like a chest of fine tools in the hands of an un- skilled artisan — useful, but impracticable, without experience. Practice in law must be largely learned from contests in courts. It is the lawyer’s trade; the more he has of good practice, the better he will know how to apply his learning. To have the keen tools, and the well learned trade, both at command, may make him an accomplished workman. No arbitrary rules of study can be laid down, as few follow the whole field of law, and more adopt some specialty, and read accordingly. From observation, practice, reading, attendance at courts, in different states, and counsel with able attorneys, the following rules, with reasons, are given as aids and suggestions in general practice. The general rules of practice may be confined to twenty-one, and by careful attention to each, great advantage will be gained over a haphazard method of trials, without any fixed purpose in examination of witnesses or argument to a jury. They may lead to winning a few extra cases a year. RULE I Study every case by itself thoroughly, and make a clear brief of both law and evidence. A lawyer in court without a brief is like a captain at sea without his chart ; a driver without a tried horse ; a marksman with an unknown gun. But one with a well-mastered case is strong in every muscle ; indeed, his victory is over half accomplished. RULE II Know what each zvitness will swear to, separately, and together. Show each witness the importance of candor ; of holding to the truth, and talk- ing in a reasonable manner, with facts and circumstances so woven together as to secure confidence. RULE III Open the case fidly before any evidence is in. Whether the plaintiff or defendant, the claim should be known, and fastened in the minds of the jury, from the start. If for the plaintiff, a careless, half heed- less statement is made, little importance will be attached to the suit until it opens itself, as it were, and, in such cases, juries often take an early prejudice that re- quires a great amount of evidence to remove. It is, therefore, very essential to success that a terse, clear, and forcible opening be made, and one that is compre- hensive and interesting to a jury. RULE IV Be forcible, firm, dignified and clear. A jury will not be long in reading between the lines, if counsel lacks force and earnestness of manner, and an interest in his client. A firm and dignified bearing will be impressive alike to court and jury, and add respect for your argument that never comes of “shilly-shally,” and frivolous statements. It is a good plan to see some experienced juryman, early after a trial, for a few trials at least, and ask, how that case was presented. In nine out of ten cases he will say, you ought to have made this or that point a little plainer. The jury did not understand it fully. Two Hu ndred and Seventeen OAe DOCKET 1930 RULE V Never be bluffed out of Court , but do not begin the bluff. Once in court stay in, and be an opponent, as Shakespeare well describes through Polonius : “Beware of entrance to a quarrel, but being in, bear it that the opposer may beware of thee !” A sudden turn in a suit — a new point sprung upon the trial — an enemy from the flank — should draw out the resources of an advocate ; and happy the man who is equal to such occasions. Great lawyers seldom stoop to petty advantages. RULE VI Brevity of facts , terseness of statements, tell best. Only one lawyer, since Rufus Choate, has succeeded by lengthy sentences, as an advocate before juries — Mr. Evarts — and his happiest efforts are given in less elaborate style than is his usual custom. Men like Colonel Ingersoll, who cut up their statements in little stars, are followed with greater interest. RULE VII Never allow yourself to switch off — “Kill the squirrel!” A trite old saying is, “Stick to your text.” In a lawsuit many things happen to try one’s patience ; witty retorts, stinging replies, low personalities, may so en- gage counsel and jury as to smother and obscure the case. Jurors take sides, and lawyers that grow personal, and enter into outside discussions, will lead a jury in the same direction. The real winner, after all, is one that, with singleness of purpose, holds to his point, and hugs the issue to the end. RULE VIII Remember, juries do not know all of the facts. Lawyers appreciate the fact that cases come to the office in a vague, uncer- tain way. The half is not always told ; that, even with several calls and explana- tions, it is difficult for a counsel to understand the facts of a law suit. Think, then, how much more it is to show these facts to the twelve new listeners, under the narrow rules of evidence, and to enable men unlearned in the law to reach a correct decision. Is it a wonder that juries blunder? Is it not a wonder that they do so well ? Let each witness be carefuly examined, and cross-examined, and re-examined, until they know the effect of a halting, unreasonable, untruthful story, and know how much stronger a fact is accompanied by a circumstance. A fact is always stronger and clearer, coupled with a picture of how it happened. RULE IX Show no uneasiness in temporary defeat. Sometimes a point fails, a branch of a suit falls through. It may not be more than the regiment of an army. It is no time to flinch or show color ; it is a time to bring out mettle. At such times Mr. Lincoln is said to have cooly remarked : “We will give them that point ; I reckon they were right there.” Proceed with as much coolness as though the value of the loss were less than a shilling. But use the other forces, and see that the whole bottom of the case never falls through a small opening. Good lawyers say that cases they were sure of winning, are often lost, and others that seemed lost in the middle of a trial, turn out splendidly in the end. Two Hundred and Eighteen T Ae DOCKET 1930 RULE X Drop a bad ivitness — Cross-examine only to gain by it. To cross-examine a sharp witness is to strengthen his testimony. Frank Moul- ton, in the Beecher trial, was always ahead of his examiners. To repeat and repeat often, is to weld and rivet with the jury what has been said, as most witnesses would sooner vary the truth than own to a falsehood. It is only on cases of doubtful identity that cross-examination tells so completely, and then it is dan- gerous ground. Cross-examination should be used with caution, discretion and judgment. RULE XI Make your evidence reach the real heart of the case. Before every trial witnesses should be examined, and never sworn without cause, and held to a strict rule of evidence, until, with truth and candor, they can bring their story to the gist of the action. More witnesses swear around a point, and omit vital and essential elements, than come squarely up to the mark, and make their meaning fully known. Sometimes a case turns on the intent, again on the cause, and often on who was the offender. To know what the core od the case is, and hold it in sight, by the proof is the part of a wise counselor. RULE XII “The main point in law is good evidence,” Is an old adage, and one not to be forgotten. Impress client and witnesses with the fact that a lawyer should know the good and bad sides both, and be pre- pared to meet either ; as scouts are sent out before a battle, so witnesses should be tested before trials. Show them the real issue, and hold them hard on the line of directness. For after all, “Man is a mystery that no other man can solve ; we are all spirits in prison, making signals that few can understand.” RULE XIII Avoid frivolous objections — Save your forces for the main chance. Many a lawyer, to be witty or show off, will talk over and work over his ground in small matters, that weary the court, and become stale when needed in the final argument. An old lawyer once said, “The worst thing that can happen to a young man is to think he is smart.” Mr. Lincoln was noted for giving away small points. “We may be wrong on that, your honor,” he would say ; or “I think we were wrong there, but it is not the gist of the matter anyway.” This fair play and liberality always told with a jury, and when he finally said, “Now, this much we may ask, and when I shall state it, it will be a reasonable demand.” Then, with all the husk trimmed off, he would state, in a candid way, such a reasonable request that the justice of his de- mand stood alone and relieved of everything, but a fair, just judgment. RULE XIV Speak clearly, carefully and candidly. Jurors respect and admire candor, and occasionally relish wit, as it serves to rest and relax their minds for better efforts; but levity continued at any length, is like a variety show, soon forgotten. Courts and jurors should be impressed with the single thought that you are not inviting them to either Two Hundred and Nineteen O ie DOCKET 1930 a quarrel or a play, but to determine some right, and rediess some wrong that you failed to settle otherwise. Aaron Burr’s great rule was: Be terse. The art of selection, he said, was the greatest human faculty. His arguments were made in half hours, never longer. RULE XV Drop all examinations and arguments in the right place. When a witness has reached a clear point and a smile follows, pei force, leave the point — let it stand like a rock on the mountain side, uncovered and alone. To stop will attract attention and rivet the mind to its importance. It is only here and there, like mile-posts, that salient points are fixed in the minds of a jury, and each should stand alone in its strength and clear- ness. RULE XVI Let judge and jury know you mean what you say. From the date of receiving a case it should grow on the mind contin- ually. By frequent reviews before the trial, by making additions to briefs, and by earnest study, it should be a case for a near friend, which to lose will cause you pain. Let it be as though you might never have another case, and on this one hung all your reputation as an attorney for life. There is no power in persuasion like where one believes what he says, where it breaks down all opposition, and cuts to the hearts of hearers like the language of a Moody or a Luther. Great men have been earnest men. Great orators have been moved by their own words and arguments, till they filled their hearers with the fire of enthusiasm. RULE XVII Consider your adversary powerful, and he ready for him. It was a rule of Napoleon never to underrate an enemy. In court trials the enemy is usually, and almost always, stronger than we expect. Hearing- one side, and that imperfectly, and generally well colored, the attorney is often surprised to find he has much to contend with before unknown, and if he has gone to trial weak in law or evidence, he may find too late, that his enemy is all powerful and cunning, and he may fight against odds, when he looked for an easy victory. There is only one way to be tolerably sure of winning, and that ' is to be always ready, always prepared, and always willing to provide the best weapons of warfare. RULE XVIII Suits turn on evidence of facts, with the application of the law. To make a legal defense, or a lawful demand, the evidence must be with- in the rules of law and the statute of limitations. So before going to court, every case should be tried in the attorney’s office ; tried with the evidence and law at hand, and tried with a full knowl- edge of the facts, but, more than all, in starting a suit, to use the right par- ties, to bring the right action, is vital to the life of the litigation, and no rule of practice should be more carefully heeded than this. Be sure you are right! The true temper of the steel depends alike on the degree of heat and the cor- rect time to cool the metal ; the law and the facts must be well united to make a judgment possible. Two Hundred and Twenty OAe DOCKET 1930 RULE XIX Twenty questions of fact will arise to one of law, in court trials. It is seldom that cases are lost on technicalities, more frequently on de- fective proof of facts. There are so many means of negligence, so many re- leases, or receipts and discharges, that lawyers are often defeated by some paper carelessly signed, without consulting counsel. In view of these facts suitors should be cautioned early in the case to leave all settlements entirely with their counsel, and never settle without advice. The more thoroughly the facts are prepared and studied, the more certain will be the result. If a case fails by a law point that no one can foresee or prevent, counsel should never be blamed for it. But a failure on a point of fact that could be fore- seen is an act not often forgiven. RULE XX See that you do your work well. It brings business. To give one rule for increasing business, embodied in two words, I would say: Be thorough. A well made deed, abstract or paper, will bring other like work to an office. A well tried case, fully and forcibly put, will bring other suits.. “That is the way,” said a listener, “that I would like my suit tried if I had one.” He is a worker, is a recommend for a lawyer; he makes his client’s case his own, is better; he wins his case, is still better ! But no one can win cases without work. Great efforts are made after long study. RULE XXI Hold on hard to the strong points of law and fact. It is related of Mr. Lincoln that he seemed utterly regardless of little points, holding to the core of his case, and winning by his liberality and fair- ness. In the trial of disputed bills he would waive interest or forego trifles, from time to time, until the close, when he would bend to his work of win- ning the main issue with a determination seldom witnessed, and having won the jury by good humor, he would fasten their judgment on the sum he de- manded. The higher one rises at the bar, the less is known of little, quib- bling demands and defenses. In the “upper stories” men battle for principles and property with manly weapons. If there is one maxim more to be remembered than others, in practice, it is, “Be Thorough.” Is it a demand to collect? Get it admitted; get it se- cured; never higgle over trifles; watch the main chance. Is it a compromise between neighbors? reach a just settlement and insist upon it. Is it a breach of contract? make whole the injured party. Is it a family difference? end the litigation. Is it the liberty of a man in chains? show him to the jury in his noblest manhood — surround him in court by his friends and neighbors ; tell what is good of him ; assume not that he is wholly innocent, but that he may not have been proven guilty. The sacred calling of a lawyer imposes earnest- ness of manner, study and ingenuity, tact and energy, and a heart full of love and loyalty for r ight, and with them every promise should be kept as invio- late as if made under a solemn oath. ’Tis said, “The accusing spirit that flew up to Heaven’s chancery with the first oath, blushed as he gave it in, and the recording angel, as he wrote it down, dropped a tear upon the word, and blotted it out forever!” Two Hundred and Twenty ' one OAe DOCKET 1930 c ke DOCKET 1930 A CAUTIOUS LAWYER To Whom It May Concern: This certifies that I will undertake the case of for $100.00, payable at the rate of $1.00 per week, or as much more as all concerned can pay; but to secure my said fee I must have some security, and accordingly will take a deed of trust on ’s place at No. 14 Avenue, City. If I find a title to the same clear, and I have said deed to said property and tax receipts now in my possession for said investigation. To see that I am safe and will be justified in undertaking the work offered me. I do not propose to turn my hand over, or to turn around on my heel until I am sure that I am right and protected, and I shall then go ahead. If I d ' o not clear or prove him an imbecile or a kleptomaniac, I will only charge $25.00 for my fee.

Har- ris Company, F Street at 11th. The needs of University men and women are given special attention. “WORDS AND PHASES” Don’t fail to read the interesting notice to National students from the West Publishing Company, of St. Paul, Minn., regarding their valuable publication en- titled “Words and Phrases.” This is a work that will be found to be indispensable.

Such a review under proper guidance unifies the great mass of uncorrelated principles which the student 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.
