CASSIX ASSISTANT DEAN OF THE LAW SCHOOL SECRETARY TO THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES CHARLES PERGLER DIRECTOR OF GRADUATE STUDIES George Washington 1732 - 1932 Bicentennial I T is the singular misfortune of men of great eminence to have had their names transferred to a tradition and to become themselves almost unknown. The tradition grows as the individual becomes obscure. We all know the myths who loom large in history ; no one knows the real man. Until recently this was true of Washington. All honor, therefore, to those biographers who, before it was too late, rescued him from such a fate. Washington was not always the victorious military leader of a great movement, or the far-seeing, constructive statesman we now honor. There was a time for him, as for 11s all, when life was in the making, and the river had to find its way to the sea; when apprehension, doubt, and fear were among his emotions; and when the impenetrable future held many fantastic possibilities. He played a great part upon the world’s stage and, successful or unsuccessful, he played it well. Until recently he has been acclaimed because he played that part successfully. But with the dissipation of the mists which have so long enshrouded him, we realize that as a man he would have been great even though he had failed. We are now permitted to know him no longer as a myth hut as a human being whom we can understand and whose frailties endear him to us quite as much as his strength and character. Man of man, or clay, or dust, Who for his country labored, Not for greed or lust, But for a cause he saw, pursued, and won, Thus was the man — George Washington.

His successful early education and business training was largely due to an intense course in the school of experience. An appointment in the War Department brought him to Washington in 1918. He has filled various responsible government positions since them. On December 22, 1924, he was appointed Director of the Bureau of Engravingand Print- ing, by Secretary of the Treasury Andrew W. Mellon. The President’s Message T I I E hour approaches when the Class of 1932 must pass into history. The pleasant associations of classmates and instructors within the lecture halls of our University come to an end. We go forth treasuring friendships formed and with gratitude to our instructors for their patient efforts to impart to 11s a knowledge of the law, but saddened by the realization that a lifetime of study is required of those who would become learned in the law. Rut before setting sail in future quests, it is fitting and proper that brief acknowledgment be made here of the appreciation of the Class to those who have given so generously of their time and energy to the Class organization and the conduct of its affairs. 1 should be remiss in mv dutv to the Class, should 1 fail to acknowledge here its indebtedness to the Editor and his associates for the services rendered by them in the production of this book. The successful publication of The Docket is recognized as the ultimate challenge and crowning achievement of the class organization of each graduating class of our institution. The task imposed upon those charged with its production is an exceedingly onerous one, requiring long hours of toil, not easily spared by those engaged in earning a living and also the study of the law: their only reward the personal satisfac- tion derived from a task well done. It was my privilege, during the preparation of this volume, to attend many " executive sessions " held by the Editor and members of his staff and to observe their constant effort to produce a Docket which would be its owner’s most cherished possession in the years to come. A roster of those who have rendered outstanding service to the Class would he incomplete without the names of Kluttz, Speer, Otto, Schilz, Lan- caster, Golding, Hart, Petrie, Mendelson, MacKay, Kilgore, Weise, Pruitt. McCathran, Pancoast. Wraase, Starkey, Bigos, Spencer, Anderson, Palmer, Sakis, Dawson, Allen, Timpe, Ray, Kendrick, Snyder, Blake, O’Connell, and Goldberg. High praise is due each of these members of the Class for their efficient management of the class organization and their willing performance of duties and tasks assigned them. To my associate officers and to the chairmen and members of the various class committees, for their loyalty and support, and to the members of the Class as a whole, for the splendid spirit of cooperation displayed at all times by each of them, I wish to express mv sincere thanks. — V.

Justice is like the kingdom of God; it is not without us as a fact, but within us as a great yearning.” — Eliot. I T devolves upon the lawyer to shape the course of justice. Such is his heritage in the law, the responsibility which his profession lays upon him. Within each of us is a motivating impulse toward justice. It emanates from the heart, is bred of human compassion and deep understanding, and should embrace a true devotion to the law as an instrument of good. If that impulse becomes perverted within us, justice miscarries and wrongs and suffering result. It should be with a supreme sense of our obligations that we prepare to enter the legal profession. We must dedicate ourselves to the task of per- petuating the integrity of the law; we must sublimate our own interests to the broader interests of mankind, remembering always that victory achieved by a compromise with justice is the bitterest defeat of all. Let us then so conduct ourselves that we may be worthy to follow in the footsteps of those great men of the law who have gone before us. Let us regard the law, not as an impediment to but as a guarantee of justice. Let us assume the responsibilities of our chosen calling without equivocation, without compromise and with a profound realization of our opportunity to contribute richly to the greater freedom and happiness of our fellowmen. — Leo Speer, I alcdictorian, Class, 1932. f i Acknowledgment T O indulge in words of appreciation but lightly renders tribute to each of those individuals who assisted in the compilation and publication of The Docket and space forbids even the fulsome commendatio n that the details of such service deserve. The curtesies of Dean Hayden Johnson and the entire Faculty calls for our appreciation. The unanimous and spontaneous cooperation of the Class of 1932, its officers, members and more especially the loyalty and down- right hard work of the President, Walter T. Cardwell, has made this Docket a work of pleasure. William A. Kluttz has earned the crown of achievement by his untiring devotion as Business Manager. Special mention must be made of John A. Hart, Associate Business Manager; Paul C. Golding, who has conducted an unusually successful advertising department; Kenneth Petrie, whose circulation department had the pleasures of distribution ; William A. Kilgore, photograph department, and Clyde R. Maxwell, Scotch Chairman of the Finance Com- mittee, who underwrote this issue. I he conception of any work is first a thought picture and an executed impulse is necessary to bring it into reality. The [editorial Staff, listed in detail in the foregoing page, toiled day by day to reduce the plan to reality, and merits the appreciation of all who mav enjoy this book. Special mention of merit is due Lanceferd B. Pruitt, Associate Fditor; Charles F. Lancaster, Biographer; Marie E. McCathran, Assistant Biographer, and Reuben Gold- berg, Associate Editor. The Docket Committee collectively and individually has put forth their best efforts in the hope that this Docket would merit a pinnacle in the tra- ditions of National University.

Parker Class History “Power to do good is the true and lawful end of aspiring.” — Francis Bacon. K NOWING well that our class life is drawing rapidly to a close, the writing of a class history brings the feeling of acting in a testamentary capacity. However, the cause justifies the end, for as individuals we can draw much satisfaction from this untoward event, as we are now approaching the summit after years of labor. But it is not unnatural that we should glance hack over the long road we have been ascending. The first evening spent at this school is vividly impressed upon our memories. We were warmly welcomed as neophytes in the law by our late Chancellor, Dr. Charles F. Carusi, and by the late Mr. Justice Frederick L. Siddons. It was a pleasure and an honor for our class to meet and to know these two distinguished students and teachers of the law. Since that time we have been steeped, evening after evening, for three well filled years, in the mysteries and intricacies of the law. Coming here as a typical assortment from all parts of the United States and from the far corners of the earth, with personal ambitions and purpose, but all with one common intent, we soon developed into a class unit. New friendships were formed, many of which will he lasting. For all of us the close association as a class through so many periods of stress has welded a bond which is much stronger than we can realize at this time. In spite of the intensity of the curriculum we have found time for the enjoyment of participation in the numerous school fraternities, clubs, and societies. In this connection it is interesting to note that the ladies, whether in or out of law school, have the undeniable right to change their minds. As freshmen, so called, they joined the Cy Pres Club. As juniors they changed the name to Queen’s Bench, and at the beginning of the Senior year they changed the name back to the Cy Pres Club. Girls will be girls. Regina precare non potest. We must not forget our three Proms. The Freshman and Junior Proms at the Carlton Hotel, and the Senior Prom at the Willard Hotel. All of them were joyous jostling affairs, overflowing with good fellowship, which we will remember for many long years. During these three years we have become intimately acquainted with two of the most amazing gentlemen in history, John Doe and Richard Roe. They [ 65 ] have suffered the rigors of the common law, and have profited by the benefi- cence of equity. At present they are living in peace at White Acre and Black- Acre, but most probably as feasors will their memory continue, ad infinitum, so that for us a successful future is assured. It is proper in concluding to pay tribute to our instructors, who have toiled to make us understand that the “retainer” is the touchstone of legal success, and who insist that although a fee simple is important in realty, an ample fee is more important in reality. Armed with these mighty secrets a bright future beckons to us. “Let us join to guard the weak from oppres- sion, and to secure to every man the possession of what belongs to him ; let us institute rules of justice and peace, to which all may be obliged to conform.” — Rousseau. —William G. Mac Kay, Historian. I ce l Martin Aaronson WASHINGTON, D. C One of Washington’s native sons. Legally bound from the start, he acquired his foun- dation of general business tactics at Business High School, this city, and on graduation wisely joined the legal ranks at National — a candidate for the LL.B. A brilliant student, destined for a great career. To this end, the class of ’32 stand behind you to a man ! The present has a right to govern itself the past is not a duty , it is only a necessity — Leonard Abrams WASHINGTON. D. C. This young man hails from the “Keystone State.” Receiving his early education at Pottstown High School, he further pursued his studies at Scranton-Lackawanna College, Pa. Aspiring toward an LL.B., he entered our legal halls and has earnestly and dili- gently labored with us in his latest endeavor. A capable man with admirable qualities, we know you will succeed. as far as it can . . . Historic continuity with Mr. Justice Holmes. I «7 | Frank J. Adams WASHINGTON, 0. C. Born in Schenectady, X. Y., Frank received his early education at Schenectady High School. Interested in recreational moments in the art of self-defense and golf, he de- cided to pursue the art of defending others and so, on to National for an LL.B. The Metropolitan Police Force is losing one of the best, but their loss is the profession ' s gain, for in Adams we have found a real gentleman, a good student, and an all-round good fellow ! James E. Ainley BETHESDA, MD. The Bay State sent an able representative to us in Jim Ainley. He attended Alabama Polytechnic Institute and Lawrence Com- mercial School prior to joining the legally- minded at National as candidate for an LL.B. A keen observer of human nature, an angler by hobby, a lawyer by profession — the three together should make for deep thought, quiet reflection, and — an honest lawyer ! II ' hat we anticipate seldom occurs; what we least expected generally happens. — Benjamin Disraeli. [ C8 ] Albert F. Anderson Orpha McKay Allen WASHINGTON, D. C. A 1 is a genuine product of Washington, be- ing born and educated here in the Technical High School and George Washington Uni- versity. The law attracted him and so to National and an LL.B. In anticipating practice in the nearby courts of Virginia, he has earned a splendid record. A member of the Delta Tau Delta and Masonic fraterni- ties, he is keen on golf, baseball and hunting. WASHINGTON, D. C. The smiling countenance which greets you is that of one of ’32’ s most capable Portias. Talented, clever, and beguiling, “Fae” would have you believe that “getting educated” was the most exciting thing that ever befell her lot, but even that wouldn’t be minus excite- ment if one’s schooldays were shared with the popular “Red” Grange. A member of the D. A. R., and Kappa Beta Pi, she gra- ciously served our social committees during junior and senior years. Ignorance of the law excuses no man; not that all men know the law , but because tis an excuse every man will plead, and no man can tell hozo to refute him. — John Selden L 09 J John G. Anderson WASHINGTON, D. C. Ail abundance of ready wit and humor is ever at the command of this, the class comic —“plain John.” Many harsh diets of saw- dust (apologies to Prof. Patterson) have been softened by natural witticisms from him. The gentleman admits having had many honors bestowed upon him, and we know for a fact that we crowned him with the Historianship of the Junior year and made him Keeper of the Counting House this year. We expect big things of you, John. Leon Arboliras BOHAL, BOHAL, P. T. Intensely interested in politics and the study of international affairs, Leon is General Treasurer of the Modernist (political) Par- ty: member of the Board of Trustees of the Yisayan Circle Club ; a member of Ric- cabono Seminar and the Masonic Club of National U. His early education was had at Bamboanga and Mindanoo High Schools, Philippine Islands. He carries back to his native land the best wishes of us all. There is no debt with so much prejudice put off as that of justice. — Plutarch. [ 70 ] Inocencio Y. Arellano SARIAYA, TAYBAS, P. I. The Philippines may well be proud of her native son, Inocencio. For three years he has been in the office of the Philippine Trade Commissioner; attended Liceo De Manila; George Washington University; Washington College of Law, and Interna- tional Chiropractic College, Manila, P. I. This young man has already the degree of D.C.S. and is quite talented in music. The best wishes of the class go with him to his native land. Willard Carleton Ayers CUMBERLAND, MD. The hills of sunny Maryland sent forth to National a titian-haired, broad shouldered, capable youth whom the Class of ’ 32 great- ly admire and respect. From Allegheny High, he took up his studies at the Uni- versity of West Virginia, where he secured unto himself an A.B. degree, and is now aiming toward a degree of Doctor of Juris- prudence. He intends to practice in Hag- erstown, Md. Inconsistencies of opinion , arising from changes of circumstances , are often justifiable. — Daniel Webster. [ 71 ] William Andre Bachrach WASHINGTON, U. C. The smallest state of the Union sent us a lot of “gray matter” in the shape of our friend and classmate, Bill Bachrach. A background of knowledge acquired at Hope High and Brown University, has stood him in good stead during these “dog-days” here at N. U. Bill is an ardent supporter of our popular instructor, Prof. Munter — may you be as successful as he in your future prac- tice in Rhode Island. Confer G. Bailey WASHINGTON, I). C. This dark, sleek-haired youth with the pleasant ways and mannerisms is a genuine product of D. C. “Jack” attended Central High and George Washington University before wisely choosing National for his Alma Mater. His winning ways have made him invaluable as a member of the social committee during the Junior and Senior years. Jack has a real hobby for traveling. We hope they will lead him into a most successful legal practice. “ There is no right zvithout a delicate edging of zvrong.” I 72 ] Harry Berg WASHINGTON, D. C. Harry is another product of our own soil. He decided that the ‘‘Mother Country” was best and received his early education at Business High School and George Wash- ington University before enlisting among the aspirants for an LL.B. at National. Swimming and basketball serve as alterna- tive hobbies when he is not engaged in his duties in the Internal Revenue Department. A good student, we are sure of his future success. James E. Bertoglio WASHINGTON, D. C. Out of the west came “Jim” and worse luck - for us natives — he is bent on returning to the land of sunshine and “movie actresses” — California. A native of Butte, Montana, he attended Creighton University, Omaha, Nebraska, and then Georgetown University ere coming to N. U. for an LL.B. “Jim” enjoys hunting, music, and football when not delving into the law. “Go west” young man, and we expect good tydings of you. The world is wearied of statesmen whom democracy has degraded into politicians. — Benjamin Disraeli. [ 73 ] t Mary Bigos WASHINGTON, D. C. The Class of ' 32 is proud indeed of “our Mary.” Earned her A.B. at George Wash- ington University, and now National Uni- versity is conferring upon her a coveted LL.B. ; winsome, sweet and wholesome, Mary is doubly blessed by being truly bril- liant ; distinguishing herself at the outset, she won the Gold Medal for the best Fresh- man Examination ; member of Phi Delta Delta, and present Chaplain. Watch for the firm of Ray and Mary ! Eternal vigilance is the William P. Blake, Jr. HYATTSVILLE, MD. “Bill” isn’t any part an Indian even if he was born in Emahaka Mission, Indian Ter- ritory, Oklahoma. There he received his preliminary education and finally meandered “out here” where he has already completed an accountancy course at the now Benjamin Franklin University and anticipates “ac- cepting” an LL.B. from National this year. A hard plugger, the Membership Commit- tee wisely chose him for a member during Junior and Senior years. Both accountancy and music strongly appeal to “Bill,” but it looks as though law is his chosen field. price of liberty . — Curran. [ 74 ] Fred Monroe Booth WASHINGTON, D. C. This dapper young “heart-breaker” is a product of D. C., but “heartbreaking” is not Fred’s only talent, for he is naturally clever and adept and we who know him predict that his climb, long but rapidly sure, to the pinnacle of his desires, in his chosen field, will be rewarded with well-earned success. Fred is strong for baseball, bridge and music, but his greatest interest is — well, they go together — a legal career and — matri- mony. G. Edgar Bowersox LANSDOWNE, PA. This jovial, pleasant and capable young man joined us toward the end of our rough jour- ney here at National, having previously attended Temple University and Dickinson Law School before choosing National as hunting grounds for a coveted LL.B. He is a devotee of tennis and wait — he has dra- matic ability as well. Profound thinking and keen judgment should win you many laurels. Good luck to you. One that will not plead that cause wherein his tongue must be confuted by his conscience. — Thomas Fuller. I 75 ] Joseph Myers Bowman WASHINGTON, D. C. “Joe,” a member of Phi Beta Gamma, is one of our Virginia gentlemen. He attended Bridgewater High in that state, and later George Washington University. Finally he showed great wisdom in selecting National for his degree of LL.B., and has labored diligently with us future legal lights. Politi- cal science and geology hold great interest for Joe but law will occupy most of his time in the not far distant future. Joseph H. Branson, Jr. WASHINGTON, D. C. The class of ’27, Harvard College, contrib- uted a worthy student to the class of ’32 in Joe Branson, who already has many attain- ments listed to his credit and many more “just around the corner.” Earning his A.B. from Harvard he conceived a legal career and joined our ranks. A member of the Trident Club, Harvard University, Joe is strong for tennis, hiking and history. Remember it is as easy to marry a rich woman as it is a poor woman . — Thackeray. r 7 ] Gaspar Gerena Bras WASHINGTON, D. C. The island of Porto Rico must indeed be proud of this, her native son who has an enviable record of achievements already at- tained. Previously educated in the Univer- sity of Porto Rico, he is the worthy author of a book of poems written in Spanish, as well as being a composer and director of the Tropical Serenaders Ensemble. As goes without saying, with such a mind, he cannot but reach his desired goal, an LL.B., B.C.L., and a successful practice in New York. Henry J. Brown WASHINGTON, D. C. Henry comes to us from Hinton, West Vir- ginia. A member of Sigma Nu Phi legal fraternity, this pleasant personality proved his worth as a member of the Social Com- mittee in the Junior year. With Henry, golf is all-high, but I might add that his sun- shine smile never fails. A high-powered salesman just now, he will ere long be sell- ing legal wares way down south — to the natives of Chattanooga, Tenn. The law: It has honored us; may we honor it. — Daniel Webster. [ 77 ] Martin Leonard Burke WASHINGTON, D. C. Martin is one of the finest youngsters in the class and is a native of the Capital City. He attended Asheville City College and then decided on a legal career and National. At present employed in the Department of Commerce, he is determined to practice in Asheville, North Carolina, and we are unan- imous in our wishes for his unbounded success. Benjamin Cabrera-Cruz WASHINGTON, D. C. I - ar-away Central America is represented also in ' 32’s contribution to law in Ben Cruz, who received his pre-legal education in the Spanish Schools and George Washington University, this city. Talented in music but particularly interested in languages. We predict a varied and successful career in his chosen career of law in the great city of Guatemala, Central America. It is said that God is always on the side oj the heaviest battalions. — Voltaire. f 78 ] G. D. Chesteen WASHINGTON, 1). C. And here we have a real southern gentleman from Mississippi; studious and intelligent, this enterprising boy has already amassed the degrees of A.B., Univerity of Texas, and B.C.S., Washington School of Account- ancy, and now an LL.B. from our National! He is an Assistant of the Joint Congres- sional Committee on Taxation; he contem- plates hanging out his shingle in the Lone Star State. Individualities may form communities, but Walter Timmons Cardwell WASHINGTON, D. C. We salute— OUR PRESIDENT! We ex- pect great things from this combination of brilliance, personality and good sportsman- ship. At National, Tim has been the recip- ient of many honors, being Vice-President in ' 31 and present Second Vice-Chancellor of Sigma Nu Phi. His responsibilities as Chief of Section, Internal Revenue Bureau does not interfere with his being just a pal to us. No parting tribute could convey the respect and admiration we hold in our hearts for Tim. it is institutions alone that create a nation. — Disraeli. f 79 ] ( i • - ♦ y v Benjamin A. Card WASHINGTON, D. C. This modest, retiring gentleman with the quiet ways and the sunny smile is a native of Illinois. Prior to his candidacy for an LL.R. from National, he secured the degree of B.S.C. from Kansas University. With such a running start, we of the Class of ’32 are sure of Mr. Card’s ultimate success whatever may be his chosen held. Emory W. Clapper WASHINGTON, D. C. Emory is that stalwart, capable-looking youth who is now engaged in getting the unfortunate into court, being a Deputy U. S. Marshal, but expects soon to defend them for being there! He attended Edinboro State College and George Washington Uni- versity before coming over to National. He is a member of Acacia fraternity and a de- votee of football. The inhabitants of the Lone Star State are his future victims and the Class of ’32 are confident of his un- bounded success with an LL.B. " Beware of men who practice law by ear.” I so 1 Paul H. Cochran WASHINGTON, P. C. Paul is another representative of the Middle West. He received his early schooling in Indiana and then decided on an LL.B. and National. Socially, he is a member of the Order of DeMolay, Phi Beta Gamma, Lin- coln Republican Club and the Indiana State Society. Paul is leaving us to go “back home to Indiana” where we know he will make a name for himself in legal circles Andrew W. Clarke WASHINGTON, P. C. And here is Andy Clarke. Being good look- ing and a sportsman are not his only gifts, for legally-speaking, Andy is more than clever. We who know him predict that there’ll be more ado about him in legal fields in the not far distant future. Here’s look- ing at you, Andy ! To have a thing is nothing if you ' ve not the chance to show it, And to knoiv a thing is nothing, unless others know you know it. — Lorp Nancy. I si ] Ruth Beatrice Cohen WASHINGTON, D. C. We invite your attention to the smiling countenance, the future junior partner of “Cohen and Cohen, ” attorneys at law, who lays claim to the distinction of being the youngest member of our class. Ruth is clever and artistic, claiming tennis as her hobby. May your attributes stand you in good stead in your future legal endeavors. Julia Cohen WASHINGTON, I). C. Julia represents the senior member of the family firm of “Cohen and Cohen,” one of the two attractive sister-acts at National. Win- some and sweet, she participates in many club activities and is “wild” about music. Capable in more ways than one, Julia is bound for a very successful legal career in D.

A graduate of Central High School, with two years of A.B. work at George Washing- ton University to his credit, Bruce is another native Washingtonian of which we are proud. His position as Estate Clerk of the American Security Trust Company will be much benefited by the vast knowledge which his candidacy for LL.B. has obtained for him. Louis Newman Conroy WASHINGTON, 1). C. Born in the State of Utah, Louis attended Ogden High, Logan High and George Washington University before aspiring for an LL.B. at National. He is already en- gaged in legal work, being Law Clerk for the reputable firm of F. G. Matson, et al., but is undecided as to his own future prac- tice.

Joseph Coopersmith WASHINGTON, D. C. Far-off Russia is well represented in the Class of ’32 and Joe is one of which we are proud. Attending Business High, he aspired for an LL.B. and M.P.L., and so to National where we have enjoyed his sociability for three long years. Tennis, swimming and music occupy his time when not engaged in his duties at the Patent Office. Future practice in Washington should endow him with many laurels.

Coulliette WASHINGTON, I). C. T 1 e pleasant countenance above belongs to Florida’s contribution to N. U. and the class of 1932. We think well of this native Floridian and are confident of his future success. While his attainments are varied, his combined talents have been concentrated chiefly to the task of civic betterment in his community. His efforts, combined with his spirit of perseverance, should certainly bring him his utmost desires. A. Lane Cricher WASHINGTON, D. C. Here is a man, a student and a pal. Born in I ronton, Ohio, he attended I ronton High and Columbia University, receiving an A.B. from the latter. An active member of the American Statistical Association, Phi Gam- ma Delta and numerous other organizations, he is the capable chairman of the 1932 Advi- sory Committee. He occupies a responsible position in the Dept, of Commerce. We are sure of his success in any position. Reason is the life of the law; nay , the common law itself is nothing else but reason . .

Aaron at- tended Central High and George Wash- ington School of Engineering before coming to National and aspiring for an LL.B. and M.P.L. He is a member of Alpha Beta Phi. He is at present employed as Patent and Trade Mark Assistant. We who know him predict an enviable future in his future legal endeavors. Arthur S. Cudmore WASHINGTON, D. C. Another home body, Arthur is destined to make a legal fortune in the Capital City, for he is the making of a very fine attorney. Educated at Business High and Steward School of Accountancy, he is the present Secretary and Treasurer cf A. D. Loffler, Jr., Inc. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa and the National League of Masonic Clubs. The class extends very best wishes to you. Candidate for LL.B., Sgt.-at-Arms, Class of 1932. Discretion of speech is more than eloquence; and to speak agreeably to him until whom we deal is more than to speak in good words or in good order. — Francis Bacon. 1 87 ] Charles R. Culligan WASHINGTON, D. C. Toronto, Canada, sent us one of the finest and best students we have in the Class of ' 32.

( 190 ] SENIOR PROM Grand Ballroom, Willard Hotel, December 4, 1931 Willettisms W hile Debtor and Creditor have their turbulent accounting. Supply and Demand wait idly at the door. Law is only stepmother to the people ' s progress ; that is to say, it corrects the child it did not bear. By what reason do you suppose Government can support the people when it subsists wholly upon the people’s produce? Violence to the violent is but instinct; gentleness to the gentle is but native grace. Law is creature of the public conscience, feared because it is severe, obeyed because it is necessary, respected because it is just. A litigant who appeals to the court of last resort is a benefactor of the Law. If you have diligently prepared and are anxious about your client’s case, what worries must your adversary have ! I he difficulty with ancient pleading is that the rules so much confuse the common sense of it. Keep doing what you find worthy to he done ; the public will find you fit in something, and by its gossip will extend your fame. The difficulty with most new lawyers is that they are profoundly ignorant of facts. A quick start from a high position leads downward, perchance a leap from the precipice. If a lawyer gives his time to the work which he has. he will soon have much work to which to give his time. Never count on defeat, but accept it gracefully, according to the adage that “Lawyers strive mightily but eat and drink as friends.” Despise not the wisdom of a hook agent. One said to me that in twenty years of selling law books he had known many lawyers that failed, and that each failure was due to the violation of one or more of these simple precepts: (i) Be in your office when not in court; (2) Do the work that you have to the best of your ability; (3) Distinguish between what is mine and what is thine. r 192 ] LAW MOOT COURT IN SESSION Fall Ter m Moot Courts National University MOOT COURT OF APPEALS Hayden Johnson W.

EDELIN RUSSELL P BELLEW Legal Witticisms W HILE flippant or witty conduct by an attorney towards the Court is to be discouraged, yet it is apparently quite proper at times for His Honor to discard the mien of seriousness and solemnity as is shown in the opinion of the late Mr. Justice Morris of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, in a case wherein the defendant had been convicted in the Police Court on a charge of being a person of evil life and fame. “It does not appear that the learned ‘professor. ' who seems to have combined the pursuit of the heavenly art of music with the more mundane and prosaic occupa- tion of delivering provisions from a grocery wagon, ever acquired fame of any kind, neither good or evil, by his performances, such as Xero did who is said to have fiddled while Rome burned. And if he is designated as a ‘man of evil life’ because nightly, for a consideration, he dispensed the harmony of sweet sounds to admiring bands ... it might well be argued that he deserves praise rather than blame for seeking to lead his auditors from Cypress to Parnassus, from the . . . groves of Daphne to the purer fountains of Helicon. It is true that excessive playing of the piano has sometimes excited homicidal mania throughout the whole neighborhood : but we have no complaint that our learned ‘professor ' here gave cause for any such feeling ... or in any way disturbed the peace and quiet of the place.” — 26 App. D. C. jo. The following anecdotes illustrate the tribulations of the legal profession: One day when Lord Coke, sitting on the woolsack in the Queen ' s Bench, was trying a case, he was much annoyed by a man in the back of the room who kept moving about, shifting chairs, and poking into corners. Finally the judge stopped the hearing and said : ‘‘Young man. you are disturbing the court by the noise you are making. What excuse have you to offer for your conduct ?” “Why, Judge,” said the young man. “I ' ve lost my overcoat.” “That’s no excuse.” retorted the judge. " People often lose whole suits in here without making half the disturbance.” A Federal grand juror went to United States Attorney French, and asked to be excused from serving, as he was hard of hearing. “You remind me of another grand juror who went to the judge and asked to be excused.” said Mr. French. ‘On what ground? ' inquired the judge. ‘I ' m deaf in one ear.’ responded the grand juror. ‘That’s all right.’ answered the judge. ‘The grand jury hears only one side of the case.’ ” A boy on a witness stand was being badgered a good deal by a lawyer, who finally asked: “Xow. see here, boy: isn ' t it true that your father is a man of rather shady reputation and that he has been arrested once or twice?” “Well.” said the boy calmly, “you can ask him if you want to. for he is settin ' right over there on the jury.” t 196 j Natural Law I T is not enough for the knight of romance that you agree that his ladv is a very nice girl — if you do not admit that she is the best that God ever made or will make, you must fight. There is in all men a demand for the superlative, so much so that the poor devil who has no other way of reaching it attains it by getting drunk. It seems to me that this demand is at the bottom of the philosopher ' s effort to prove that truth is absolute and of the jurist’s search for criteria of universal validity which he collects under the head of nat- ural law. I used to say, when I was young, that truth was the majority vote of that nation that could lick all others. If, as I have suggested elsewhere, the truth may be defined as the system of my (intellectual) limitations, what gives it objectivity is the fact that I find my fellow man to a greater or less extent (never wholly) subject to the same Can’t Helps. If I think that I am sitting at a table I find that the other persons present agree with me; so if I say that the sum of the angles of a triangle is equal to two right angles. If I am in a minority of one they send for a doctor or lock me up ; and I am so far able to transcend the to me convincing testimony of my senses or my reason as to recognize that if I am alone probably something is wrong with my works. Certitude is not the test of certainty. We have been cocksure of many things that were not so. If I may quote myself again, property, friendship, and truth have a common root in time. One can not he wrenched from the rocky crevices into which one has grown for many years without feeling that one is attacked in one’s life. What we most love and revere generally is determined by early associations. I love granite rocks and barberry bushes, no doubt because with them were my earliest joys that reach hack through the past eternity of mv life. But while one’s experience thus makes certain pref- erences dogmatic for oneself, recognition of how they came to he so leaves one able to see that others, poor souls, may be equally dogmatic about some- thing else. And this again means scepticism. Not that one’s belief or love does not remain. Not that we would not fight and die for it if important — we all, whether we know it or not, are fighting to make the kind of a world that we should like — hut that we have learned to recognize that others will fight and die to make a different world, with equal sincerity or belief. Deep- seated preferences can not be argued about — you can not argue a man into liking a glass of beer — and therefore, when differences are sufficiently far [ 197 ] reaching, we try to kill the other man rather than let him have his way. But that is perfectly consistent with admitting that, so far as appears, his grounds are just as good as ours. The jurists who believe in natural law seem to me to he in that naive state of mind that accepts what has been familiar and accepted by them and their neighbors as something that must he accepted by all men everywhere. No doubt it is true that, so far as we can see ahead, some arrangements and the rudiments of familiar institutions seem to he necessary elements in any society that may spring from our own and that would seem to us to be civilized — some form of permanent association between the sexes — some residue of property individually owned — some mode of binding oneself to specified future conduct —at the bottom of all, some protection for the person. But without speculating whether a group is imaginable in which all but the last of these might disappear and the last he subject to qualifications that most of us would abhor, the question remains as to the Ought of natural law. It is true that beliefs and wishes have a transcendental basis in the sense that their foundation is arbitrary. You can not help entertaining and feeling them, and there is an end of it. As an arbitrary fact people wish to live, and we say with various degrees of certainty that they can do so only on certain conditions. To do it they must eat and drink. That necessity is absolute. It is a necessity of less degree but practically general that they should live in society. 1 f they live in society, so far as we can see, there are further condi- tions. Reason working on experience does tell us, no doubt, that if our wish to live continues, we can do it only on those terms. But that seems to me the whole of the matter. I see no a priori duty to live with others and in that way, but simply a statement of what I must do if I wish to remain alive. If I do live with others they tell me that I must do and abstain from doing various things or they will put the screws on to me. 1 believe that they will, and being of the same mind as to their conduct I not only accept the rules but come in time to accept them with sympathy and emotional affirmation and begin to talk about duties and rights. But for legal purposes a right is only the hypostasis of a prophecy — the imagination of a substance supporting the fact that the public force will be brought to bear upon those who do things said to con- travene it — just as we talk of the force of gravitation accounting for the conduct of bodies in space. One phrase adds no more than the other to what we know without it. No doubt behind these legal rights is the fighting will of the subject to maintain them, and the spread of his emotions to the general rules by which they are maintained ; hut that does not seem to me the same f 198 ] thing as the supposed a priori discernment of a duty or the assertion of a preexisting right. A dog will fight for his bone. The most fundamental of the supposed preexisting rights — the right to life — is sacrificed without a scruple not only in war, but whenever the interest of society, that is, of the predominant power in the community, is thought to demand it. Whether that interest is the interest of mankind in the long run no one can tell, and as, in any event, to those who do not think with Kant and Hegel it is only an interest, the sanctity disappears. I remember a very tender-hearted judge being of opinion that closing a hatch to stop a fire and the destruction of a cargo was justified even if it was known that doing so would stifle a man below. It is idle to illustrate further, because to those who agree with me I am uttering commonplaces and to those who disagree I am ignoring the necessary foundations of thought. The a priori men generally call the disse ntients superficial. But I do not agree with them in believing that one’s attitude on these matters is closely connected with one’s general attitude toward the universe. Proximatelv, as has been suggested, it is deter- mined largely by early associations and temperament, coupled with the desire to have an absolute guide. Men to a great extent believe what they want to — although I see in that no basis for a philosophy that tells us what we should want to want. Now when we come to our attitude toward the universe I do not see any rational ground for demanding the superlative — for being dissatisfied unless we are assured that our truth is cosmic truth, if there is such a thing — that the ultimates of a little creature on this little earth are the last word of the unimaginable whole. If a man sees no reason for believing that significance, consciousness and ideals are more than marks of the finite, that does not justify what has been familiar in French sceptics; getting upon a pedestal and professing to look with haughty scorn upon a world in ruins. The real conclusion is that the part can not swallow the whole — that our categories are not, or may not be, adequate to formulate what we can not know. If we believe that we come out of the universe, not it out of us, we must admit that we do not know what we are talking about when we speak of brute matter. We do know that a certain complex of energies can wag its tail and another can make syllogisms. These are among the powers of the unknown, and if, as may be, it has still greater powers that we can not understand, as Fabre in his studies of instinct would have us believe, studies that gave Bergson one of the strongest strands for his philosophy and enabled Maeterlinck to make us fancy for a moment that we heard a clang from behind phenomena — if this l iau i he true, why should we not he content? Why should we employ the energy that is furnished to us by the cosmos to defy it and shake our fist at the sky? It seems to me silly. That the universe has in it more than we understand, that the private soldiers have not been told the plan of campaign, or even that there is one, rather than some vaster unthinkable to which every predicate is an imperti- nence, has no hearing upon our conduct. We still shall fight — all of us because we want to live, some, at least, because we want to realize our spontaneity and pro ve our powers, for the joy of it, and we may leave to the unknown the supposed final valuation of that which in any event has value to us. It is enough for us that the universe has produced us and has within it, as less than it, all that we believe and love. If we think of our existence not as that of a little god outside, but as that of a ganglion within, we have the infinite behind us. It gives us our only but our adequate significance. A grain of sand has the same, but what competent person supposes that he understands a grain of sand? That is as much beyond our grasp as man. If our imagina- tion is strong enough to accept the vision of ourselves as parts inseverable from the rest, and to extend our final interest beyond the boundary of our skins, it justifies the sacrifice even of our lives for ends outside of ourselves. The motive, to be sure, is tbe common wants and ideals that we find in man. Philosophy does not furnish motives, but it shows men that they are not fools for doing what they already want to do. It opens to the forlorn hopes on which we throw ourselves away, the vista of the farthest stretch of human thought, the chords of a harmony that breathes from the unknown. — Oliver Wendell Holmes.

He is executive assistant to the Attorney General, a Mason, a Sigma Delta Kappa and a candidate for LL.M. and M.P.L. Mauro Baradi A.B., LL.B., LL.M., M.P.L. PHILIPPINE ISLANDS. From the Philippine Islands comes Mauro Baradi, who has distinguished himself and added honor to his land by his splendid achievements in scholarship and oratory.

Baltimore is famous for her charming and gracious ladies — Mary Rose Deering com- bines this tradition with that of scholastic attainment. She is now a candidate for LL.M. and M.P.L. and indeed, a Wonderful Girl. Robert Melvin Charles, LL.B. NEW YORK. Robert Melvin Charles comes from New York, where they seem to excel in produc- ing line legal minds. Washington is greatly enriched thereby. After viewing the array of bars of which he is a member, you will agree with us that he is, indeed, “Charles the Great.” He practices before the following Courts : U. S. Supreme Court, Indiana State Supreme Court, District Supreme Courts of New York and Vermont, and Court of Appeals, D. C. He comes now seeking another honor — LL.M.

Nelson Bean, a candidate for LL.M. and M.P.L., member of the District of Columbia Bar, admitted to practice before both the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia and the Court of Appeals, member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and Historian of the Class of 1931, is a native son of whom Virginia is proud and so is National Uni- versity — Y ou bet. William E. Deering, LL.B. MARYLAND. “If you want anything done, ask a busy man to do it.” Bill Deering is the busy man and the class offices, held by him, as well as those in Fraternities make us wonder when he studied law and how he passed the Bar — That’s easy? Superior mind! Seriously, Bill merits and has the affectionate esteem of the Class of 1931 and 1932. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity and a candidate for his LL.M. and M.P.L. The applause of a single human being is of great consequence . — Samuel Johnson. f 209 1 Ernest C. Mellor, LL.B. WASHINGTON, D. C. Some time after his first birthday in New Rochelle, New York, Ernest Mellor went to Hagerstown, Maryland, High School, then on to Ben Franklin University in Washing- ton, D. C., from which he graduated. The yearning to become a legal luminary burst into flame with an LL.B. from National and now he’s blazing away at a Master of Laws and a Master of Patent Law. He is a mem- ber of Sigma Nu Phi. Francis G. Morrison, LL.B. WASHINGTON, D. C. Francis G. Morrison is surely Washington minded, for from his birth his accomplish- ments have been in Washington ; Grammar School, Emerson Institute and National University. He is associated with the Fed- eral American National Bank and Trust Company, a member of the Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity and a candidate for an LL.M. We are proud of our Native Son. It is hard for an empty bay to stand upright. — Franklin. r 210 j A Reginald B. Munson, LL.B. With an LL.B. from George Washington, Reginald Munson came dashing over to National to capture an LL.M. and an M.P.L. With these for a start, Virginia, Washington and National University may well be proud of another able lawyer. He’s a Sigma Al- pha Epsilon, too. I am resolved to grozv fat, and HDD Elihu Holland Moore, LL.B. TENNESSEE. An ex-marine from Tennessee came to Na- tional in search of law and found it. How- ever, “locomotives and his watchin’ the train,” — acknowledged interest and hobby, — sound as if another good engineer had gone wrong. Elihu Holland Moore is a Mason and member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Frater- nity and candidate for Master of Laws and Master of Patent Laws. Candidate for LL.M. look young till forty . — Dryden j m l ‘211 1 Lyle L. Robertson, LL.B. IOWA. Tall corn and fine students seem to be a special product of Iowa. From Coe College comes Lyle L. Robertson to demonstrate the latter. He’s a candidate for LL.M. and M.P.L. and a member of Alpha Kappa Pi Fraternity. Some Demonstration! M. Maurice Parshall, LL.B. MICHIGAN. From Michigan comes M. Maurice Parshall with an LL.B. from Southeastern, a C.P.A. (Ga. ) 1926, and membership in the Georgia Bar. If there were such a thing as an “Allonge” for degrees, he would need one, after graduation in June, to accommodate the new LL.M. and M.P.L. Litigious terms , fat contentions , and flozving fees . — Milton. [ 212 ] Atherton G. Southworth LL.B. WASHINGTON, D. C. With Warwick High School, of Brockton, Massachusetts, and Pace and Pace Institute conquered, Atherton Southworth tackled Na- tional University to acquire an LL.B., but to complete the conquest an LL.M. will be added to the spoils. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, a Mason, and a member of the Bar, D. C. Known as the ‘‘Judge,” eh what! Kathryne Pickett, LL.B. JOPLIN, MO. Those who come from Missouri are said to be unusually free from gullibility, and this no doubt is due to a special quality of mind. Kitty, from Joplin, has convincingly demon- strated the latter, for, in addition to having won a bachelor, she is now a candidate for two masters — LL.M. and M.P.L. She is secretary to Congressman Phil. D. Swing, of California, and a Phi Delta Delta. Some Girl. I had rather have a fool to make me merry than experience to make )iie sad. — Shakespeare. I 213 ] James E. Phillips, LL.B. WASHINGTON. D. C. To complete his broad held of interests, elo- cution, philology and etymology, James Phil- lips turned to the law. He is a candidate for the degrees of LL.M. and M.P.L. and a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. Good luck, old man ! Andrew J. McGaraghy, LL.B. WASHINGTON, I). C. If you join a special interest in business administration and government with a Bach- elor of Law degree, you have a member of the bar, but if you add to that an LL.M. and an M.P.L. you have a very able student of law, and then if to this you add a mem- bership in Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, the result is — Andrew J. McGaraghy — a fine fellow. “Any child with a few stones can destroy beautiful zcindoics but only an Albert Durer can make them. " [ 214 ] Roster of Graduate Students CANDIDATES FOR DOCTORATE James R.

I , CHARLES LOUNSBURY, being of sound and disposing mind and memory, do hereby make and publish this, my last will and testament, in order, as justly as may be, to distribute my interest in the world among succeeding men. That Part of my interests, which is known in law and recognized in sheep-bound volumes as my property, being inconsiderable and of no account, I make no disposal of in this, my will. My right to live, being but a life estate, is not at my disposal, but these things excepted all else in the world I now proceed to devise and bequeath. Item : 1 give good fathers and mothers, in trust for their children, all good little words of praise and encouragement, and all quaint pet names and endearments, and 1 charge said parents to use them justly, but generously, as the needs of their children shall require. I ton: 1 leave to children, inclusively, but only for the term of their childhood, all, and every, the flowers of the field, and the blossoms of the woods, with the right to play among them freely, according to the custom of children, warning them at the same time against the thistles and the thorns. And I devise to children the banks of the brooks and the golden sands beneath the water thereof, and the odors of the willows that dip therein, and the white clouds that float high over the giant trees. And I Leave the children the long, long days to be merry in a thousand ways, and the night and the moon, and the train of the milky way to wonder at, but subject, never- theless, to the rights hereinafter given to lovers. Item : I devise to boys, jointly, all the idle fields and commons, where ball may be played, all pleasant waters where one may swim, all snow-clad hills where one may coast, and all streams and ponds where one may fish, or where, when grim winter comes, one may skate, to have and to hold the same for the period of their boyhood. And all the meadows, with clover blossoms and butterflies thereof, the woods with their appurtenances, the squirrels and birds and echoes and strange noises, and all distant places which may be visited, together with the adventures there to be found. And I give to said boys, each his own place at the fireside at night, with all the pictures that may be seen in the burning wood, to enjoy without hindrance, and without any incumbrance of care. Item: To lovers, 1 devise their imaginary world with whatever they may need, as the stars of the sky, the red roses by the wall, the bloom of the hawthorn, the sweet strains of music, and aught else that they may desire, to figure to each other the lastingness and beauty of their love. Item: To young men, jointly, 1 devise and bequeath all boisterous inspiring sports of rivalry, and I give to them the disdain of weakness and undaunted confidence in their own strength. Though they are rude, 1 leave to them the powers to make lasting friendships, and of possessing companions, and to them exclusively I give all merry songs and brave choruses to sing with lusty voices. Item: And to those who are no longer children, or youths, or lovers, 1 leave memory, and bequeath to them the volumes of the poems of Burns and Shakespeare, and of other poets, if there be any, to the end that they may live the old days over again, freely and fully, without tithe or diminution.

DONALD LEATHERWOOD Secretary CHARLES E.RAEDEA Vice -Frercdeni I I JUNIOR CLASS ’33 IN SESSION History T HE Class of 1933 started the present school year with no perceptible depletion from the current economic distraction. In fact seats were at a premium; the “standees” giving the classroom the appearance of a “first night” at the Follies. We even had the “star actor” from Brooklyn again with us. The class lost no time in organizing and when the battle-smoke had cleared away Jim Ely had been elected “Skipper” of the class; Charles E. Raeder, Vice-President; Frederick E. Robey, Treasurer; Donald Eeatherwood, Secre- tary; Jesse Chessin, Sergeant-at-Arms, and John J. Ragan, Historian. With the election of officers out of the way the efforts of the class officers were turned toward the selection of committees and preparation for the annual Junior Prom. James Ragland was named Chairman of the Social Committee and immediately began formulating plans for the dance which turned out to be one of the finest from a social standpoint and most successful financially. Held at the beautiful Kennedy- Warren ballroom — one of the finest in the city — with music furnished by Fes Colvin and his Aristocrats, so successful it was that the Class of 1933 is one of the richest, if not the richest. Junior classes in the history of “dear old National.” Our erstwhile professor, Mr. W illett, has said, “One may succeed and marry, but you will probably marry and succeed. " From all appearances this “Willettism " is given strength by the romance of the former Miss Katherine G. Peffers and our President, James K. Ely, who are now “Mr. and Mrs. " The announcement of their marriage during the Freshman year brought forth a shower (of rice from Herb Osborne ) and good wishes from their classmates. Others known to your narrator who have joined the ranks of the “bene- dicts during the past year are Ralph Byers and debonair Jack McFall. Good luck, boys. There are worse things than getting married. And for you skeptics and " knockers” of the tie that binds, all I can say is “Try it and find out.” The prize for the highest average in the Freshman class went to Mrs. Lorena H. Galbraith. The reputation of the male contingent was saved by our Vice-Persident, Charles E. Raeder, who was awarded the prize for the best examination in Bills and Notes. Oh, yes, we have another prodigy in our class, our classmate from Brooklyn. We will probably hear more from him before we graduate ( ?). — J. J. Ragan, Historian.

L.TREYlUt-O FRESHMAN CLASS ’34 IN SESSION History of The Class of 1934 “If only myself could talk to myself As I knew him a year ago I could tell him a lot That would save him a lot Of the things he ought to know.” T H It year of 1931 will long be remembered in the history of our Country as the year of the depression, but it will also be remembered in the history of National University as the banner year in Freshman Class enrollment. Contrary to the established rule that the best things come in small packages, the class of 1934, the membership of which exceeds any previous class by at least eight per cent., also has the distinction of ranking with the best in scholarly attainment. Of course, we all realize that we have a long, hard road to travel before reaching our goal, but with the many advantages offered bv the National University we should complete our course with the same courage and ambition that has been manifested by tbe student body thus far. A great amount of credit is due the faculty in our first year. After all it takes a good foundation to construct a strong building, and should our experiences in the future be as pleasant as they have been in the past, we have much to look forward to. When we study the roster of the alumni of National University and consider the high places held by these men and women in legal, financial and political fields, we then realize that we have much to live up to. We have been extremely fortunate in our selection of William Boyd Craig as our class President. He has proven himself an able executive and worthy of the office in every respect. We are all pulling for vou, Bill ! The crowning social event of the Class was the Freshman Prom, held on April 15, 1932, at the Willard Hotel. The. true spirit of cooperation was demonstrated by the large attendance not only by members of our class but also by the upper classmen. Term examinations were over and everyone felt carefree and happy, which was evidenced by their participation in this affair. “There is no defeat, in truth, from within; Unless you’re beaten there, you’re bound to win.” — Severino Trujillo, Jr., Historian. { 237 ] Freshman Class Committees EXECUTIVE Eugene Carusi George Schulz ENTERTAINMENT Louis Berman Joseph C.

BERNARD MAYO Dean of the School of Economics and Government Dean’s Message W E of the faculty of the School of Economics and Government are justly proud of these graduates of 1932. Our pride, however, is mingled with regret. For we, perforce, must take leave of men and women who have been not only our students but our friends and companions in a common undertaking. To our mind they amply prove the wisdom of the late Chancellor Carusi in founding a department of the University which, working in conjunction with the Law School, would meet an increasing demand from a complex modern society for men and women adequately equipped in the social sciences, and capable of meeting the challenges of a legal, governmental, or business career. I he founders budded well. Each year has witnessed the infusion of new life by a more numerous student body, the addition of new courses and new instructors, and the extension of facilities. Each year has witnessed a growth in the mutual relationships of the Law School and the School of Economics and Government. Each year a group of graduates, stamped as the product of our institution, has gone forth into the world to reflect credit upon themselves and upon their college. All this is well illustrated by these graduates of 1932. A number hold responsible positions in the government service, five are practising attorneys, one a former state Supreme Court Justice, one a legal expert adviser in foreign trade. Many have come to us from leading universities. From col- leges formerly attended, one has received his Phi Beta Kappa key, one a Magna Cum Laude degree in law, another a Magna Cum Laude degree in foreign trade. That our University is truly national in scope and in influence is shown bv the wide geographical distribution of these graduates. That these men and women of the graduating class of 1932 will reflect credit upon themselves and upon their University not only in the nation but abroad, is the confident hope of the Dean and faculty, who now, with pride and genuine regret, bid th em Godsj eed. t 246 ] CHARLES PERGLAR HOWARD Lf.

DOCKET! IS 1951 Fraternity Man We hear so much about fraternalism, Now really, what does it mean? Is it merely a group bound by oath and pledge? Well, at first that is what it would seem. Perhaps some think they have done something great, If they join up with this or that, Perhaps some think they are a fraternity man, Just because they belong to some Frat. Fraternalism means a lot more than that: It means doing good where you can ; Not merely the wearing of a ring or pin, But a general fellowship with man. It means playing square with each man you meet, It means being true to the creed, It means being true to those that come your way, And, if you can, help the fellow in need. So remember, it’s not the secret pledge, Or the rules of any clan, But our fair dealings with one another. That makes us a fraternity man. — Lanceferd B. Pruitt, Jr.. ’32. T rri T T! TM 1 T V ?

Greenwood Arthur J.DiAon Vol. XXIX “The Ledger " of Joseph H. Choate Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi T ALKING over the happy moments of such a year as the last has been is a double pleasure enjoyed in fact and memory. As has been our custom, an elaborate Guest Night Program was the initial festivity of the scholastic year 1932. Our guests were greeted and cajoled by that intriguing mistress of ceremonies, the inimitable Maxine Doyle, of Earl Theatre and “thank you’ ' fame. The Brothers Alvin W. Hall, Director of the Bureau of Engraving and Printing, Professor E. R. Woodson, and Pro- fessor G. L. Munter, of many talents, were there to regale us with stories. What a night of entertainment, winding up with a buffet supper! The boys all voted for a return engagement. A few weeks later the members all turned out in a body to attend the special performance at the Earle Theatre for the benefit of the unemployed. Bill Kilgore went backstage with our compliments to Maxine. Our annual dance was held in November at the Hay-Adams House, and if you have seen the pictures of it you know we had a good time. During the Xmas Holidays we took on Holmes Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi, for the annual bowling tournament to determine possession of the cup. A clean- sweep for our side, and the cup may be seen on our shelf shining in all its lustre for another year. The latest at this writing is the presentment of a fraternity bulletin board, now placed in the halls of National by those members of the Class of 1932 who are also members of Choate Chapter, so that be who runs may read. Ob ! 1 almost forgot to tell you, Pruitt, without consulting any of us, took it upon himself to get married. “Jim” Ely did Iretter (by the boys) when he stepped out. “Bill” Kluttz and a lot more of the boys passed the bar. “Tim” Cardwell goes from one “executive session” to another so that now bis children have to look at his picture for identification when he comes home — some day. And last and best of all was our fraternity banquet in February at the Hay-Adams House. Just members night with A. E. Otto as toastmaster. Chancellor Kluttz was presented with a golden shield for service of merit. And so to press ere the cock’s crow herald the headlines of another day. r 274 1 Sigma Delta Kappa Intercollegiate Law Fraternity Scholarship : : Character S IGMA DELTA KAPPA was founded at the University of Michigan in 1914, a fraternity choosing its men for character and ability rather than because of their material means or their station in life. Among its objects are, to bring together congenial members of the legal profession and those fitting themselves to become such for mutual association in a social and business way ; to enable students of recognized law schools to meet and associate with other students of character and ability from their own schools and other institutions ; to perpetuate the friend- ship formed at college; and, to further the best interest of the Fraternity, the schools in which its chapters are located, and the Government of the United States.

THE GEORGE WASHINGTON MASONIC NATIONAL MEMORIAL ALEXANDRIA, VA. National University Masonic Club Affiliated with the National League of Masonic Clubs T HE National University Masonic Club was installed on December 4, 1920, with twenty-one members. It was organized for the purpose of promoting a spirit of good fellowship and cooperation among all the students, and more especially among the Master Masons of the School. The Club from its beginning enjoyed the hearty support and cooperation of our late friend and brother Chan- cellor Carusi, who was a life member of the Club and through whose generosity the Club is authorized to award two full scholarships each year to deserving members of the Craft. The success of the Club is reflected in its social gatherings and in its attainments of the objects for which it was organized. The annual banquet of the Club held each year is its outstanding social event and is looked forward to with pleasure by members of the faculty and of the club. No history of the National University Masonic Club and the place which it occupies in our school life should he written without some mark of respect and tribute to the memory of those that have made the journey to that undiscovered country from whose bourn no traveler returns. For many years Dean Charles Francis Carusi, Mr. Justice Frederick L. Siddons, Dr. Albert H. Putney and Hon. Henry L. Rathbone have been among us instructing and preparing 11s for the great profession in which by precept and example they had attained high honor and distinction. Behold how swiftly the sands run and let 11s as much as possible imitate the example of these exemplary brethren in whose passing we have suffered such great loss. HONORARY MEMBERS Y. A.

As the year is drawing to a close, we look with a great deal of pleasure to the years that have passed, for our dream of Victory has not been disappointed. When we compare the pleasure of anticipa- tion with the realization of our accomplishments it is with a great deal of pleasure that we have reached the goal of our desire. We can rest assured that we are richer in the treasure of warm friendship which our years of association have given us; and when we come to the parting of the ways, we will realize that we have gained that unexplainable something which is not to be lost with the passing of time. This group, which founded the fraternity, was motivated more by a feeling of comradeship than by the collegiate aspect of a fraternal group. The latter was merged with the truly spiritual force that actuated and brought the first group into fraternal being. Our founders were anxious that the ties formed should never be severed, and so by pledging themselves to everlasting friendship, organized into a fraternal group; the growth of which was beyond their broadest imagination and fondest hope. Our progress has withstood the acid test of time and if we have enhanced, in the least bit, the fraternal spirit of Eternal and Everlasting Friendship, we will deem it a shining symbol of our effort.

Four women pioneers in the study of law conceived the inspiration of binding themselves together for the purpose of promoting a congenial, intellectual and professional atmosphere among women students of the University. This culminated in the founding of the Cy Pres Club, which is now the largest women’s organization in the University. Membership is accessible to students in the School of Economics and Govern- ment as well as to those in the School of Law. The Club sponsors a number of social functions each year, which promote a closer relationship among the women students and tend to enlarge their mutual interests. The outstanding social event is the Annual Banquet on the 22nd of Februarv, to which all members, their friends, faculty and alumnae are invited. [ 292 ] EDNA T.

Its charter was granted on May 3, 1921. Since that time it has steadily progressed toward its goal of service and fellowship, and has kept pace with the increase of women students in the school. Omicron stands ready at all times to aid women in the study of law, to encourage any movement for the benefit of mankind, and to elevate the standard of the legal profession. It is particularly interested in the removal of restrictions against women in the profes- sions. The Chapter supports three scholarships in the University each year. While the primary purpose of the sorority is to further its members’ interest in the field of law, it nevertheless sponsors numerous social activities during the school year, which tend to promote a feeling of mutual interest and understanding among the members.

At present there are forty-three student and eight alumnae chapters in recognized law schools in the United States, one chapter in Canada, and one in Paris, France. Kappa Beta Pi is the first fraternal organization, general or professional, to install a chapter on the European continent. Kappa Beta Pi numbers among its honorary members such women as Judge Kathryn Sellers of the Juvenile Court of the District of Columbia; Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean emeritus, Washington College of Law; Judge Florence E. Allen of the Supreme Court of Ohio; Helena Normanton, England’s first woman barrister; Mine.

Minnesota f 30fi | Pi Alpha Epsilon Fraternity “You benefit yourself only as you benefit humanity.” T HE gregarious instinct latent in most of us, when appealed to in the proper form and developed in the laboratory of human contact, usually fulfills the obligations upon which any organization, fraternal or otherwise, is founded. Pi Alpha Epsilon has a history that is brief but full of instances justifying its creation. Not only have the members secured the friendships necessary to social progress but they have had the opportunity to develop their intellectual talents beyond the usual University bounds. Furthermore, the members have evidenced qualities of kindness, tolerance and understanding necessary to insure fraternal harmony. - This fraternity has for its aim the development of each individual so that in his progress through the years to come he will carry on the traditions of the great brotherhood of man, and, as the 1 grains of sand pour from the hour glass of life the world will regard him as John Gay felt when he wrote of a departed friend : “In manner gentle, of afifections mild ; In art a man, simplicity a child.” — Joseph J. Snyder, President. :w ] Mauro Baradi Joseph M c Groary Pi Alpha Epsilon Fraternity Henry Reil The Segnu Forum HE Segnu Forum, as the name will imply, is an 1 organization of the students of the School of Economics and Government of National University. The formation of this club fulfilled a desire ever present in the minds of the students of this branch of the University. The objects of this group are embodied in its constitution as follows : “the mutual promotion of interests of the students, the stimulation of the mem- bers in the fields of literature and the social sciences, the creating of a spirit of fellowship through oppor- tunities afforded for mutual acquaintance, and the fostering of a closer contact between the faculty and the student body.” — Joseph L. McGroary, President. | . ' !( !) i Stella C. Gray r rtistoruL i The Philippine Columbians Mauro Baradi President Inocencio Arellano Leopoldo Martelino Vice-President Reporter Pablo P. Mam aril Secretary Alfredo Cruz Historian Anacleto Madarang T rea surer - " •effe - Arturo Tomelden Student Representative MESSAGE OUR AIM T HE Philippine Columbians, composed of Filipino students in the National University of Washington, D. C., was organized to strengthen the tie that binds Filipinos together for the attainment of a common cause — the freedom of their country and happiness of their people. Coupled with this, is a desire to get in close contact with the youth of America, for we believe that through such association, a knowledge of real conditions obtaining in both countries can be acquired. We are grateful to the professors and the Student Body as a whole for the hospitality and courtesy extended, and the attention gives to us. Conscious of this fact, every Filipino who leaves the halls of the University feels that he has a duty to perform and a mission to accomplish. We say “duty” because the completion of a course is not in itself an end. It is a means by which the student is enabled to make or mar himself as he goes out in the open field of life; if he works well, he succeeds; if he lags behind, he fails. We say “mission” because the Institution was not only founded to award diplomas and confer degrees ; it exists to build better men and make responsible citizens — happy and independent. The literary and social programs rendered, the donation of books dealing with the Philippines to the University, our cooperation with clubs and fraternities, and more recently, the annual reception and ball held in which professors and students of the Alma Mater were guests — these were some of the activities of the Philippine Columbians during this school year. We share with the rest of the Student Body in a movement to promote better fellowship and mutual understanding among all concerned. The Philippine Colum- bians are convinced that this is one way wherein they can render some help to their motherland and at the same time contribute toward the building of a bigger and better Alma Mater. — Mauro Baradi, President.

P ARI ' of the obligation of a university to its students is that it provide an unlimited held for an exchange of ideas and the development of ideals without which there can be little progress. Particularly is this true of National University, having in its student body men and women from all parts of the world and every walk of life. To minister to the needs of these students in the matter of making them acquainted one with another ; to furnish each one with an insight into the habits, thoughts and aspirations of his fellow students, and to provide a medium for individual expression is the work of an integral part of the University, the school paper. Although The Crier is in its infancy it has succeeded in creating some interest among the students and faculty. Many contributors have made it possible for the paper to function independently of financial support from the University authorities. Gradually, it is hoped, the student body as a group will utilize this publi- cation so that its fullest advantages may be enjoyed. When this goal is achieved then the spirit of the above quotation will be the foundation for the most prized possession of any university — a harmonious whole. — Joseph J. Snyder, Editor.

Perhaps you say just live your life today, You know the story of the (lav that’s gone; But happy is he, master of his destiny, Who can see the future as he goes along. You say perhaps that in this life. Fate plays a mighty part, But would that 1 could just look ahead, And see the pathways in life ' s chart. Happy is the man who can lay a plan, And see the outcome at the start. Happy is he who can follow that plan, And knows when to choose from head or heart. Some say it is predestination That determines the path we trod. But happy is the man of tomorrow Who knows the will of his God. Whether it be fate or kismet, Or whatever it mav chance to he. Happy is the man who travels the way. As a master, knowing his course. Sooner or later we learn that life is so, That sunshine mingles with happiness and sorrow But happy is he who looking ahead can see. To-morrow and to-morrow and to-morrow. — Lanceferd B.

WE SPECIALIZE IN COPYING c Preparing for the Bar Examination I t is possible for the law student to review for the Bar Exami- nation without supervision, just as it is possible to study law with- out attending law school but the method is certainly not the most effective. Competent guidance is as essential in review as else- where. Frank S. Smith The Bar Examination Fifty per cent usually fail. Personal deficiency is the cause. Self -preparation requires more than blackletter text and quizzers. One omits what he thinks he knows. Self-correction of unknown deficiencies in understanding of principles, law-applica- lion, and accuracy of expression, are not easy, even if time were available. Repeated failures after taking mere “ quiz courses show that the bar examination is NOT a memory lest. The applicant must analyze about one hundred problems covering the field of law, apply the pertinent principles, reason to logical conclusions, and express concise answers with brief supporting arguments. After all the money, time and energy devoted to a general study of law, is it wise to invite 1 ailure? Not being admitted to the bar may obstruct advancement now. Later it may cause irreparable loss. Eligibility is jeopardized by delay. Requirements become more rigid. How can a student properly prepare without interference with regular law school work? National students know the answer.
