GODFREY L. MUNTER The Palace of Justice o x THE thirteenth day of October, 1932, the American Bar Associa- tion conducted the formal ceremonies attending the laying of the cornerstone of the new home of the Supreme Court of the Lnited States on the square east of the Capitol and north of the Library of Congress. This majestic palace of justice, built in a classic style harmonizing with the architecture of the adjacent public buildings, is rapidly nearing completion under the supervision of Cass Gilbert, the noted Xew ork architect, and his associates, Cass Gilbert, Jr., and John R. Rockart. The work is under the charge of the Supreme Court Building Commis- sion, of which Chief Justice Hughes is Chairman. Actual operation is in charge of David Lynn, Architect of the Capitol, who is a member of the Commission and its Executive Officer. Congress authorized an appropriation of $9,740,000 for the building, and about $3,000,000 of this has been spent for marble alone. The struc- ture, which is 385 feet from east to west and 30 5 feet from north to south, has four open courtyards 64 feet square. Vermont marble is being used for the exterior and Georgia and Alabama marble for the interior. I he portico will be of the Corinthian order and there will be a low pilaster treatment around the building. Beautiful bronze window casings will set the whole off with striking effect. On the main axis of the plan will be the Supreme Court Chamber itself, 82 by 91 feet, characterized by appropriate simplicity and quiet dig- nity. A magnificent law library, reading room, ample conference rooms, rooms for the Justices and rooms for the use of attorneys will be provided in the second and third stories. Even special telephone booths and con- venient rooms will be available for the Press, and there will be special rooms for the Attorney General, the Solicitor General, the Clerk of the Supreme Court and the Marshal.

[ 6 ] •miiniiniiniHi Foreword This issue of THE DOCKET, like its prede- cessors, was compiled and published under the auspices of the Senior Class amid the unceasing activities for which National University Law School is famed. Its theme is the Supreme Court of the United States, deemed particularly appropriate at this time because the new home of the Court in W ashington is destined to be largely com- pleted before the close of the current year. The DOCKET is not the work of the editorial staff alone ; it is the result of the efforts of many contributors. W hat ever merit it may possess is attributable to the splendid cooperation of the Faculty and Student Body as a whole. The volume is a memento of days of work and play, but mostly work, spent at National University Law School. If in the years to come it shall recall pleasant memories of happy days spent there, then it will have served its chief purpose and the reward of its makers will be complete. 7 1 To The Honorable Charles Evans Hughes Chief Justice of the United States In Appreciation of His long patriotic public service, His preeminence as lawyer, statesman and jurist, His lofty ideals and scholarly attainments, and His noble character and humanitarianism. This issue of The Docket Is Respectfully Dedicated By the Class of 1933 Of National University Law School CHARLES EVANS HUGHES Chief Justice of the United States The Chief Justices of the United States ALL Justices of the Supreme Court of the United States hold office dur- ing good behavior, which in most cases is tantamount to life tenure, and accordingly, from the historian’s point of view, the lives of the Chief Justices are comparable to the reigns of kings rather than the administra- tions of Presidents or other officers elected for specific terms. The short span of our existence as a nation, as well as the length of the terms of the Chief Justices, is graphically illustrated by the fact that only eleven men, including the present occupant, have held that high office. Three of these were appointed by President Washington, while Presidents Adams, Jackson, Lincoln, Grant, Cleveland, Taft, Harding and Hoover appointed one each. Twenty-two of our thirty Presidents who preceded Franklin Delano Roosevelt never had the opportunity to appoint a Chief Justice. Such an opportunity has come to only two Democratic Presidents since the election of Jefferson. T he average term of the Chief Justices has been slightly more than thirteen years. John Marshall served thirty-four years and Richard Brooke Taney twenty-eight, a total of sixty-four years, or nearly half the time since the establishment of the Federal Government under the Constitution. Many men still living have known, or might have known, seven of the eleven Chief Justices, and four of them have been alive since the birth of most of the present students of the National University Law School. In one sense the Supreme Court of the United States began life as an orphan. Unlike the other two great departments of the Federal Govern- ment, it had no counterpart under the Articles of Confederation. The Constitution provided simply that “the judicial power of the United States shall be vested in one Supreme Court, and in such inferior courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish.” The number of the judges and their manner of selection, as well as a definition of the juris- diction of the Supreme Court, were left to Congress. r 11 i When George Washington became the first President of the Federal Government under the new Constitution he offered John Jay, an eminent New Y ork jurist and statesman, any post that he might choose. What that choice would be was not known to the public until, at a state dinner, President Washington turned to Jay and said: “You will sit at my right, Mr. Chief Justice.” Then and there the Supreme Court of the United States was launched on its notable career. Of John Jay it is said that he never sought public office throughout his long and unusual career as a public official. He brought to his new task a high order of ability and a wide experience in many fields of endeavor. Born in New Y ork City in 1745 of French Huguenot and Dutch ancestry, and educated at King’s College, now Columbia University, he had served as chief justice of his State, minister to Spain, secretary of foreign affairs under the Articles of Confederation and as one of the five commissioners who negotiated the treaty of peace with Great Britain at the close of the Revolution. He was for a time president of the Continenal Congress and was a member of that body when the Declaration of Independence was signed. His name would have appeared on that historic document had he not been detained in New Y ork on State business when the signing took place. Thus it happened that the name of no Chief Justice appears among the signers. As a holdover from the old system Jay was the first Secretary of State in Washington’s cabinet, acting ad interim pending the arrival of Thomas Jefferson in New Y ork. In Jay’s time neither the Supreme Court itself nor public opinion was prepared for the great work later performed by John Marshall. The Su- preme Court as “the sheet anchor of the Constitution” was a conception that came later. Jay ' s most important decision as Chief Justice was Chisolm v. Georgia, which held that a citizen of one State could sue another State and which resulted in the adoption of the Eleventh Amendment to the Con- [ 13 ] stitution to prevent such suits. A threat of war between the United States and Great Britain arising, Jay, while still Chief Justice, was sent to London and the famous Jay treaty was the result. So unpopular and unsatisfac- tory was this treaty that there was a great outburst of public indignation and the Chief Justice was burned in effigy in several communities. But the young republic was unprepared for a foreign war and the treaty was reluc- tantly accepted by Washington and confirmed by the Senate as containing the best terms obtainable at the time. Upon his return from England, Jay found that he had been elected Governor of New ork and he then did something that seems odd to us in this day — he resigned as Chief Justice to become Governor of his State! He was a brother of Sir James Jay, an eminent physician, who was knighted by George III and who was suspected of disloyalty to the United States after the Revolution, being practically disowned by the Chief Justice. To succeed Jay President Washington selected a distinguished South Carolinian, John Rutledge (1739-1800), who had served as an Associate Justice from 1789 to 1791 and who resigned from the Court to become chief justice of his State. He was a brother of Edward Rutledge, a signer of the Declaration of Independence, and the father of John Rutledge, Jr., who represented a South Carolina district in Congress from 1797 to 1803. Rutledge assumed his duties as Chief Justice in 1795 and presided over the Court during the August term, but in the following December the Senate refused to confirm his nomination. I he position was next offered to Caleb Cushing, the senior Associate Justice, who declined the honor. Washington now turned to Connecticut and his third choice met with the approval of the Senate. Oliver Ellsworth was born in 1 745 the same year in which Jay was born. He was of English ancestry and was edu- cated for the ministry at Yale and Princeton. There has always been con- siderable mystery as to just why Ellsworth suddenly quit Yale in 1764. In [ 13 ] that year President Clapp wrote in his journal: “Oliver Ellsworth and Waightstill Avery, at the desire of their respective parents, were dismissed from being members of this college.’’ Apparently there was no hard feel- ing, though, for Ellsworth sent all his sons to Yale for their education. Young Ellsworth wanted to be a lawyer, not a preacher, and because of his stubborn persistence in this course his father cut off his allowance. Unable to buy a horse, he frequently walked from Windsor to court in Hart- ford and back, a distance of twenty miles, in a day. His practice increased rapidly and he soon removed to Hartford, where he took his place at the head of the Connecticut bar and amassed a considerable fortune. For six years he served in the Continental Congress, and in the Constitutional Con- vention of 1787 he was the chief advocate of the “Connecticut Com- promise,’’ which adjusted some of the differences between the large and the small States. Upon the organization of the new Federal Government he became one of Connecticut’s first two Senators. He was the chief author of the bill organizing the Federal judiciary and John Adams referred to him as “the firmest pillar of Washington’s administration.’’ In those days the Chief Justice, as well as the Associate Justices, had to ride the circuit and Ells- worth found the task a severe strain on his constitution. His talents and temperament fitted him for the work of the advocate and legislator rather than for purely judicial business. A great lawyer rather than a great judge, what fame he was entitled to was eclipsed by the luster of his great suc- cessor. Chief Justice Ellsworth had several peculiar personal habits. Ad- dicted to snuff, his one vice, he would often become so absorbed in a task that he would unconsciously take out the powdered tobacco and instead of putting it in his nose place it in tiny cone-shaped piles on the floor around his chair. He regularly talked to himself, even in the presence of others. [ 17 ] Like Jay he went on a European diplomatic mission while Chief Justice and his last public service was as one of three commissioners sent to France in 1799 and 1800. An arduous sea voyage and a long journey by land through Spain and France impaired his health permanently. Negotia- tions with Napoleon being none too successful, the Chief Justice sent one of his sons to America with his resignation and lingered in England to recruit his broken health. Ellsworth had two sons who won distinction, though in a lesser degree than their father. They were twins, Henry Leavitt Ellsworth, the first commissioner of patents, and William Wolcott Ellsworth, Governor of Connecticut and member of Congress. President Adams now turned to Washington’s first choice and asked former Chief Justice Jay to take back his old job. In the light of the subsequent thirty-four years under the next Chief Justice, Jay’s reason for refusing is little short of amusing. He declined, he said, because the Su- preme Court lacked “the energy, weight and dignity which are essential to its affording due support to the national government.” Then, unexpectedly, the President offered the post to his Secretary of State, John Marshall of Virginia. The new Chief Justice was forty-six years of age and no stranger to public office. He had served as an officer in the Revolution, being with the Continental troops at V alley F orge, and somehow obtained enough leave to study law under Chancellor Wythe at William and Mary College. It was said that he was one of the best run- ners and jumpers in the V irginia forces and could, with a running jump, clear a pole laid on the heads of two men as tall as himself. On one occa- sion, while making an exhibition of his athletic skill, he ran a race in his stocking feet. His stockings were blue with white heels. This circum- stance, combined with his victory and personal popularity, led his fellow soldiers to nickname him Silver Heels and the sobriquet stuck to him throughout life. [ 10 1 When the Federal Government was organized Washington offered Marshall the post of Attorney-General, but he declined, preferring to re- main in private practice in Virginia without the interruptions that public office would entail. In 1798 he was one of the three commissioners sent to Paris to negotiate with The French Directory. Denied formal recogni- tion, the commissioners were told that a sum of money might induce the desired cordiality. “No, not a sixpence,” replied Charles Cotesworth Pinckney, angered by the hint for a bribe. When Marshall returned to America he was very popular with the Federalists and they gave him a ban- quet in Philadelphia. One of the toasts was “Millions for defense, but not one cent for tribute,” a saying which is ascribed to Pinckney but which he never heard until his return months later. In 1798 Marshall declined to accept a place as Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, but in 1799 he consented to be a candidate for the House of Representatives. While a member of the House he offered the famous resolution, written by Light- Horse Harry Lee, declaring that Washington, who had just died, was “first in war, first in peace, and first in the hearts of his countrymen.” Resigning from the House in 1800, he was tendered the post of Secretary of War by President Adams, an offer which he did not even consider. A few weeks later, however, he consented to become Secretary of State, and he continued to discharge the duties of that office until March 4, 1801, notwithstanding he had taken the oath as Chief Justice a month before. This is not a proper place to review the distinguished judicial career of Chief Justice Marshall. Suffice it to say that in the thirty-four years following Marshall’s appointment Jay’s description of the Court was belied, and, due to the Chief Justice’s genius and courage, the Supreme Court acquired the “energy, weight and dignity which are essential to its afford- ing due support to the national government,” none of which it possessed under his predecessors. The Jeffersonians complained that Marshall con- ni; 0m wmm ' aim m TOl p " L(L1 [ 21 ] tinued to make Federalist laws long after the Federalist Party was dead. John Adams had lef t the Capital in a huff without waiting to see his suc- cessor inaugurated, but he had, without realizing it at the time, left behind a greater force for consolidating the national government than Alexander H amilton and a dozen other leading Federalists combined. Chief Justice Marshall boldly declared that any act of Congress repugnant to the Constitution is void and that it is the function of the Supreme Court to so declare. This power, often criticized, remains un- shaken to the present day. However, contrary to the popular notion, com- paratively few of the many acts passed by Congress are later declared unconstitutional by the Supreme Court. It is estimated that between 1789 and 1929 Congress passed about 55,000 separate acts, considerably more than half of which were of a public nature. During this period of one hun- dred and forty years the Supreme Court, according to its librarian, declared only fifty-six acts and parts of acts of Congress unconstitutional. Associate Justice Samuel Chase of Maryland, a signer of the Declara- tion of Independence and the only Justice of the Supreme Court ever im- peached, was impeached in the early years of Marshall’s Chief Justiceship. The Senate acquitted him. In 1804 the Court received a valuable acquisi- tion in Associate Justice William Johnson of South Carolina, the youngest man who has ever been a member of the Court. He was thirty-two years of age when appointed and he served under Marshall for more than thirty years. The Constitution does not provide that persons shall have attained a certain age before they are qualified to become F ederal judges, as it does in the cases of the President, Vice-President, Senators and Representatives, and therefore it is presumed that any person of legal age is qualified in that respect. The feeling of the Jeffersonian party against the administration of the Supreme Court under Marshall subsided during the more conservative I 23 ] administrations of Monroe and John Quincy Adams, but it blazed anew after Andrew Jackson obtained the reins of government. In 1832 , when he was seventy-seven years old, the great Chief Justice handed down his decision in the case of W orcester v. Georgia. Worcester was a missionary who had been imprisoned in Georgia for preaching the gospel among the Cherokee Indians in violation of a State law. Georgia formally denied the jurisdiction of the Supreme Court of the United States and refused to appear at the hearing. In his decision Marshall declared the statute under which the missionary had been arrested was unconstitutional and the de- cision of the State court, which had convicted Worcester, was “reversed and annulled.” President Jackson, a strong believer in states rights and in sym- pathy with Georgia, declared, according to tradition, that “John Marshall has made his decision — now let him enforce it.” Of course the Court was powerless without the aid and cooperation of the executive branch of the Federal Government and consequently the mandate was never obeyed by Georgia. Even before his death the Marshall legend was growing so rapidly that many people assumed that he was the first instead of the fourth Chief Justice. He died July 6, 1835, in Philadelphia, full of years and greatness. Two days later the famous Liberty Bell of Revolutionary times was cracked while it was being tolled as the remains of the great Chief Justice were removed from the City of Brotherly Love to Virginia for burial. President Jackson’s choice to succeed Marshall was Roger Brooke Taney, who as Attorney-General had rendered an opinion in favor of the right of the President to remove the deposits from the United States Bank and who as Secretary of the Treasury had actually made the removal. Taney belonged to an old Roman Catholic family in Maryland, and his mother was related to the Thomas Brooke from whom the village of T. B. in Prince Georges County received its name. Broadly speaking, Chief Jus- MELVILLE W. FULLER— 1888-1910 tice Taney, who leaned toward strict construction to a greater degree than his distinguished predecessor, was more interested in the preservation of individual liberty and less interested in the preservation of property rights. He is best known in connection with the famous Dred Scott decision, which, intended to allay sectional strife by removing the question of slavery exten- sion from politics, had the effect of further inflaming the North and hasten- ing the coming of the Civil War. In the midst of that great conflict Chief Justice Taney died, and Presi- dent Lincoln appointed in his place Salmon Portland Chase, who was born in 1808 in New Hampshire, but who had settled in Ohio. Chase was edu- cated at Dartmouth and Cincinnati College. After serving as Governor and United States Senator he became Lincoln’s first Secretary of the Treas- ury. As head of the Treasury Department he put “In God We Trust” on our coins; as Chief Justice he gave us a popular saying which is quoted almost daily. In a letter dated May 1 7, 1 866, to Horace Greeley, he wrote : “The way to resumption is to resume.” He has been the only Chief Justice to preside over the Senate during the impeachment trial of a President of the United States. Chase’s death occurred in 1873 and President Grant chose to succeed him Morrison Remick Waite (1816-1888), who was born in Connecticut and who was educated at Yale, but who settled in Ohio. Upon Waite’s death in 1888 President Cleveland appointed Melville Weston Fuller (1888-1910) to succeed him. Fuller was a native of Maine and a graduate of Bowdoin, but had gone to Chicago and plunged into an active legal and political career. He has been the only Chief Justice who was small physically, all his predeces- sors and successors thus far having been tall and large men. A natural politician, thoroughly acquainted with the changing industrial conditions of his day, he was perhaps the best business head the Court has ever had. EDWARD D. WHITE— 1910-1921 Fuller was the first man to be commissioned “Chief Justice of the United States.” All his seven predecessors had been commissioned “Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.” Since Fuller’s ap- pointment the commissions have carried the shorter title. The official title of the head of the Court has varied widely in the different laws dealing with the Court. Even as late as 1926 Congress passed an act providing a salary of $20,500 for “the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.” On one occasion Chief Justice Taft reminded an attorney practic- ing before the Court that “the Chief Justice of the United States,” not “the Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States” is the correct title of the head of that institution. When Chief Justice F uller died in 1910 President Taft, a Northerner, a Republican and a Unitarian, did a handsome act by appointing to the Chief Justiceship Edward Douglass White, a Southerner, a Democrat and a Roman Catholic. Nonpartisan though the Court is supposed to be, it has been the only case in which a President has appointed to that office a man of a different political affiliation. White, who was born in Louisiana in 1845, a century after the birth of Chief Justices Jay and Rutledge, was the son and grandson of a member of Congress. Fie served as a private in the Confederate Army during the Civil War, being the fourth man with military experience to become Chief Justice. Jay was a colonel in the New York militia, though he never saw any very active service; Rutledge was active commander of the militia of South Carolina for two years in the Revolution when he was president of his State; and Marshall saw considerable active service as a commissioned officer in the same conflict. After serving in the United States Senate, White was appointed an Associate Justice of the Supreme Court by Presi- dent Cleveland in 1894, and he has been the only man elevated directly from an Associate Justiceship to the Chief Justiceship. Rutledge and Hughes [ 28 ] [ 29 ] had previous service as Associate Justices before their elevation to the highest seat, but both had resigned and left the Court. Upon White’s death in 1921 William Howard Taft, who had ap- pointed White, was himself appointed as White’s successor by President Harding, and he has been the only man thus far to occupy both the high posts of President and Chief Justice. Whereas Waite was born in Con- necticut and removed to Ohio, Taft was born in Ohio and removed to Con- necticut. Chief Justice Taft died in 1930 and President Hoover appointed to succeed him Charles Evans Hughes, who, like Jay, is a native of New ork, and who has successively held the offices of Governor, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court, Secretary of State, and Chief Justice. r so 1 yiHIIIIMIIIIJM!

[ ] Historical Sketch T he National University in Washington was originally incorporated in 1869 under the General Incorporation Law of the District of Columbia. Professor Wedgewood and several associates were the leaders in its organization. In one of his first state papers as President of the United States George Washington advocated the founding of an institution of higher learning under the auspices of the Federal Govern- ment, and the National University in the Capital of the Nation was formed as a nucleus around which it was hoped a government institution might spring up, although it has at no time been officially connected with the Government. During the first half of its existence the National University had the honor of hav- ing five Presidents of the United States as Chancellors ex officio. They were Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland. The first diplomas awarded bore the signature of President Grant as Chancellor, and those awarded in the four succeeding national administrations bore the signatures of Presidents Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland, respectively. In those days it was customary for the President of the United States, acting in his capacity as Chancellor of the University, personally to confer the degrees on the recipients at the public exercises held in the National Theatre in W ashington. In 1896 Congress by a special act granted a broad charter to Arthur MacArthur, Richard H. Alvey, Charles C. Cole and their associates, thirteen in all, with full power “to grant and confer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees.” The thirteen incorporators constituted a self-perpetuating Board of Trustees of the Uni- versity. Unfortunately space does not permit mention of all the distinguished men who have served on the Board of Trustees, nor of those members of the Law School Faculty who have so unselfishly dedicated their services to the cause of legal education in the District of Columbia. The Law School is nonsectarian, is one of the oldest in the United States and has enjoyed an unusual standing among members of the legal profession in Washington and elsewhere on account of the thoroughly practical character of the work carried on in the School by successful practitioners at the Bar, and by reason of the high character of its unusually mature and ambitious student-body. There have been graduated from the Law School during the sixty-three years of its history approximately 6,500 students. Among their number are many who have achieved distinction at the local Bar, others who have become judges of national reputation, and others who have served in Congress and in other high official capacities. The Chancellors of the National University who have served since President Cleve- land have been Associate Justice Samuel F. Miller of the Supreme Court of the United States; Bishop John Fletcher Hurst; Associate Justice Arthur MacArthur of the Su- preme Court of the District of Columbia; Chief Justice Richard H. Alvey of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia; Eugene Carusi, LL.D. ; Charles F. Carusi, LL.D., and Hayden Johnson, LL.D., the present Chancellor.

Born at Glens Falls, N. Y., in 1862, he was educated at Colgate, Brown and Columbia Universities. The very number of prominent posi- tions already held by him makes unsatisfactory a short sketch of his life. After practicing law for several years and teaching and lecturing on the subject for several more he became special counsel for a number of large organizations, both public and private. In 1906 he became special assistant to the Attorney General in a coal investigation and following that experience he held or was offered the following long but incomplete list of public trusts: Republican nomination for Mayor of New York City, which he declined; two terms Governor of New York; Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States; Republican nominee for the Presidency of the United States; Chairman of the New York City District Board of Draft Appeals; Special Assistant to the Attorney General in charge of aircraft inquiry; Secretary of State of the United States; Delegate to and Chairman of Washington Arms Conference; Special Ambassador to the Brazilian Centenary Celebration in Rio de Janeiro; Chairman New York State Reorganization Commis- sion; Chairman of the American Delegation to the Sixth Pan American Conference in Habana; Member of the Permanent Court of Arbitration at The Hague; Judge of the Permane nt Court of International Justice; President of the New ’f ork Bar Association; President of the American Bar Association, and dozens of others almost as important. Only last year, since he has been Chief Justice, he became President of Guatemala- Honduras Arbitral Tribunal. The Chief Justice is author of many vol- umes of addresses and lectures of great importance to the legal profession, to statesmanship and to public thought. 4 Chancellor’s Message For THREE years we have been associated in a common endeavor. During these years in the pursuit of this object there has been woven about us the bonds of mutual understanding, of friendship and of good fellowship. You are now about to bid adieu to your Alma Mater, and each of you to embark upon a career in which the principles you have mastered here are to be practically applied. Upon behalf of the University and its Faculty I am bidding you farewell. May we always remember the pleasant and fruitful years we have spent together; may our feelings and friendships for each other grow stronger as the years multiply; and may you go forth from the School with the knowledge that through the vicissitudes of life the wistful eye of your Alma Mater is upon you, ready to encourage and applaud. And, with the varying shore of the world, may you too bear in mind that whether material success be quickly gathered or long deferred, whether recognition comes early or late, there must always be with us that foundation of real and lasting success that comes only with the knowledge of adherence to principle and integrity to our ideals.

SENIORS The Honorable Daniel Calhoun Roper Secretary of the Department of Commerce , Honorary Member of the Class of 1933 aniel Calhoun Roper, who has been chosen as the Honorary Mem- ber of the Class of 1933 of National University, is a native of South Carolina, having been born in Marlboro County in that State in 1867. After receiving his A. B. degree from Duke University in 1888 he plunged into public life and began that long and distinguished career which has finally brought him to one of the most honored posts in the Federal Gov- ernment. From 1892 to 1894 he was a member of the South Carolina House of Representatives; from 1894 to 1897 he was Clerk of the U. S. Senate Committee on Interstate Commerce, and from 1900 to 1910 he was an expert agent with the U. S. Census Bureau. While in the latter position he developed a plan for collecting cotton statistics by a count at frequent intervals during harvesting seasons of the bales turned out at the ginneries. Amid the demands of public business he found time to study law at the National University Law School and in 1901 graduated with the degree of I.L.B. President Wilson found Mr. Roper employed as Clerk of the House Ways and Means Committee and he entrusted him with one high commission after another, including that of First Assistant Postmaster General, Vice Chairman of the U. S. Tariff Commission and Commissioner of Internal Revenue. Throughout his busy career Mr. Roper has found time to fill numerous positions of an educational and phil- anthropic character. .f President’s Message As we turn the pages of the book of life in the golden years to come, we shall likewise turn the pages of this book to hnd a memory on each page — memories of friends, of associates, of trials, of tribulations, of days of persistent toil — memories that supply the invigorating tonic of the elixir of living — memories of youth — ambitious youth bonded together to attain the privileges and mental stimulus afforded by a quest for a degree in the law. Our path in realizing our common desire to have this memento of our three years of association has not been without its obstacles, disap- pointments and disheartening difficulties that at times seemed impossible of surmounting. Adversity, personal as well as financial, has plagued us. The demands upon our time, both in educational and vocational pursuits, have seriously handicapped us in promoting extra-curricular activities. The depressed condition of the times has still further limited our sphere of cooperative activity. It is then, in the light of these circumstances, that I extend, in terms of glowing praise, my most sincere tribute to those members of the class who by their days — yes, weeks of unselfish effort and labor — have made possible the publication of “The Docket, Class of 1933.“ Their reward must lie in the knowledge and satisfaction of a job well done — in bringing success where failure seemed inevitable — and in the grateful appreciation of their fellow classmates. To name this group would be at the risk of omitting someone deserving of recognition. Ely, Marler, the Greenwoods, Raeder, Ragan, Shipman, Butler and Leahy are hut a few of those who were called and found not wanting when the crises in the matter of the production of the book arose. In this connection, I deem it but appropriate to pay commendation to the Special Docket Committee composed of Rothchild, Galbraith and Byers. Solely by dint of contin- uous hard work, coupled with good judgement, they effectually brought order out of chaos and paved the way for our persevering editor to com- plete the difficult task of compiling and arranging all manuscript and then producing the completed book in time for distribution. To my fellow officers, Committee chairman and Committee mem- bers I likewise offer my heartfelt gratitude. Among others, Miss Barnes, Mrs. Galbraith, Robey, Sigal, Raeder, Hilton, Miss Bartels, Mrs. Ely, Del ong, Katz, Foster and Howard rendered conspicuous service and ad- mirably acquitted themselves in their designated tasks. To you, my fellow classmates, I extend an expression of thanks and appreciation, the sincerity of which the written word cannot convey. The honor you have conferred upon me in electing me your president, and the repeated occasions upon which you have given me manifestations of your confidence, in happy and troublous days alike, will ever be treasured as a beautiful memory in my life. May success follow each and every one of you in your chosen pro- fession is my earnest wish. [ 69 ] Class of 1933 OFFICERS President Jack K. McFall Vice-President Laurie Barnes Treasurer Frederick E.

I hroughout civilization the lawyer has been entrusted with duties and obligations which are the very foundation-rock of government and justice. Not infrequently, the effort, the diligent study and the sacrifice which proper fulfillment of these trusts require, seem far out of proportion to the material compensation; yet, there is abundant reward in the knowledge that, in entering the profession of the law, we are permitted to be disciples in a noble calling, that we are having placed in our custody an instrumentality for good, a means by which we can render greater service to our fellow man. 1 oday, apathy toward civic and patriotic responsibility threatens our well-being. Confidence in our national institutions has been shaken far more by a feeling of indifference than it has by action of those forces who seek this objective. Grave problems beset the land whose citizenry recedes from active interest in matters governmental. As we enter the field of law we must dedicate ourselves to the restora- tion and advancement of the principles and ideals that brought this Nation into existence. We must assume the responsibility of leadership in the march against civic lethargy. Then will we have established claim to place in this honored profession. James J. Butler, V ale die tori an , Class of 1933 [ 73 ] To the Class The achievement of any single thing demands the cooperation and help of many for the execution of a task. I have, as Editor of The Docket, been privileged in the association and help of my fellow students. Without this help it would not have been possible to place this book in your hands. I have never asked for help but that I have received it in bountiful meas- ure. We have tried to make this Docket interesting to you. If we have achieved a small measure of success, if thru the years to come you may pick up this vol- ume and it may bring to you a warm recollection of the happy days spent at National University, then we have been repaid a thousandfold. For the help and assistance of Dean Hayden John- son and the members of the faculty we are truly thank- ful. May the book please you. Edward J.

DEXTER jtsst Biographer A Precedent Case — A Tribute Class of 1933 vs. Depression et al. of 1933 w T HE National Law School Class of 1933 came into existence in the first college year after the break of the prosperity boom in 1929. As is traditional in our University, the Class is composed of students well past the usual college age, many of them married with families, and all of them dependent entirely on their day-time employment to pay for their education. The unparalleled depression imposed trials and hardships which have been in- delibly impressed upon the Class as well as each member. In many cases the burden was greater than could be borne and some members were forced to drop out or to postpone indefinitely the completion of their legal training. During our first year there was a total enrollment of 423, the second year 292, and the third year 274 members. We want them to know that the Class is greatly saddened by their loss from our ranks and we trust that some day they will be able to pick up where they left off and join us later in the ranks of the alumni. Those who remained found it no easy task to weather the attack of the Depression. Drastic reductions in salaries, jobs completely swept away in some cases, funds totally lost or tied up indefinitely in closed banks, all these threw their force against our Class activities and so cut into our revenue that the very publicaion of The Docket itself was threatened. The President of the Class apprised us of the seriousness of the situation and a Class emergency was declared. Twelve of our classmates without hesitation joined in pledging over $800 to insure the publication of The Docket. These were Jack McFall, John R. Galbraith, Clinton W. Simonson, Ralph A. Byers, Emmett R. Car- roll, Eugene E. Ditton, Bernard Van Loen, Leon G. Morris, Alfred A. Hilton, Louis Rothschild, Donald H. Sanborn and Ira D. Scott. To these the Class extends its sincere appreciation. After the resignation of the first editor chosen the Class gave plenary authority to a special committee to issue The Docket. This committee consisted of Louis Roth- schild, John R. Galbraith, Ralph A. Byers and Jack McFall as ex officio members. Edward J. Leahy was selected as the new Editor. It was only after surmounting seemingly unconquerable obstacles by the Class, the special committee, the new Editor and the previously appointed staff, that it was possible for this Docket to be produced within the short time remaining before gradua- tion and without additional cost to the subscribing members. The publication was effected without calling for a single emergency pledge. To the special committee, the Docket Staff and the appointed committees who worked from the beginning of the year and continued their efforts to the end, and to the Editor, who, without notice, was called upon to assume an apparently hopeless task and performed it with most admirable dispatch and satisfaction, and to all who assisted by service or in any way contributed to the successful publication of this book, despite sudden and most discouraging difficul- ties, the Class cordially extends its thanks and appreciation.

Further, the friendships of these years of studious contact are to be remembered and maintained. I he Class of 1933 carries in its memory something more than the Rule in Shelly’s Case or the hundred and one other rules of law with their thousand and one exceptions. Latin maxims will pass into the limbo of forgotten things, but we shall always hold fresh memories of our fellow students and those who have led us through the jungle of the Law. Your Historian’s recollections go first to the opening night. The late Charles F. Ca rusi, whom we were fortunate in knowing, in simple and homely words welcomed and informed us that the intent of National Uni- versity was to teach us the “Trade of Law” ; to make us skilled artisans in distinguishing right from wrong. He caused us to realize and appreciate the dignity and the sovereignty of the Law. We now appreciate his timely thought, that the mere study of the Law alone makes better citizens. We can truly add that the study also makes better friends. The First Y ear. The Cl ass wisdom was at once manifested when we selected for President, William G. Shipman, under whose able leadership we changed from strangers to true classmates. As Vice President, the charming Miss Katherine G. Peffers was elected and the whole school took a lively interest in the romance that resulted in her becoming Mrs. James K. Ely. Other officers elected were Everett A. Edwards, Treasurer; Chester S. Ring, Secretary; Thomas David, Sergeant-at-Arms ; and E. G. Daniels, Historian. The primary class activity was naturally the “Prom” held at the Carlton Hotel, and its success was due largely to Herbert J. Smith, as chairman of that important committee. The Second Year. With the dignity of second-year students, good judgment was exercised in the class organization. James K. Ely, the benedict, was selected as President; Charles Raeder, Vice President; H. Donald Leatherwood, Secretary; Fred Robey, Treasurer; Jesse Chessin, Sergeant-at-Arms ; and James Ragan, Historian. The social feature of the year was a dance held at the Kennedy Warren, and to James Ragland, as chairman of the committee, fell a great deal of the credit for a most success- ful event. Particular mention should be made of the fact that our second year ended with our class organization the wealthiest in the history of the University. In these days of difficulty in balancing budgets, nothing more need be said. The Third Year. As seniors, our class history has been even more auspicious than it began. Jack K. McFall was recognized as outstanding and selected as President of the Class. Miss Laurie Barnes, honor student of the year before, was selected as Vice President. Frederick Robey was re-elected Treasurer, and Mrs. Lorena H. Galbraith, an honor student of the first year, was elected Secretary. Thomas David was again chosen Ser- geant-at-Arms, and O. C. Ma rler was elected Class Orator. I he office of Class Historian was awarded to Louis Rothschild. The senior “Prom” was held at the Willard Hotel and Charles Raeder was chairman of the committee responsible for its real success. Ours has not been a mere academic relationship between faculty and student and it is not only proper but desired that we here express our appre- ciation, respect, and friendship to the Dean and the Professors. Tolerant of our shortcomings, ever helpful, these Gentlemen of the Law have by their actions instilled within us that spirit which should be an attribute of all lawyers. That spirit is not to foster litigation and conflict, but to support moral and legal Justice ; to be true Officers of the Court. The temptation is to thank by name our individual Professors, but a class history should not repeat the Faculty list. Their names, however, will not be forgotten by the Class of 1933. So it ends. In mere words it sounds prosaic, but we, the members of the Class of 1933, will never regard it so. For these were three years of benefit and friendship, and the ties that have been formed and the memories created will not easily pass from our recollections. We pledge that our appreciation to those who made it possible will be expressed in future accom- plishment. In the words of Shakespeare: “Parting is such sweet sorrow.” Louis Rothschild, Historian.

When Dan adds his new de- gree to the one he already has he says that he will open a law office in Washington. [ 87 ] Dan Batt DEFIANCE, OHIO Candidate for LL. B. degree. Of all the things there are to read Dan prefers to peruse Consti- tutional Law. Dan has an A. B. from Defiance College, in Ohio. He is now employed by Rep- resentative Frank C. Kniffin. Politics have a powerful appeal for Dan, so we may see him a member of Congress himself a little later but right now he has aspirations toward establish- ing a law office in his home state. Miguel Bauza LARES, PUERTO RICO Candidate for LL. B. degree. Born in Lares, Puerto Rico, educated in Perkiomen Seminary, Pennsburgh, Pennsylvania, Albany Business College, and New York University, and having been connected with the diplomatic service in the Republic of Argentina, South America, and the export business in New York City, Miguel brought a rich and varied experience to Na- tional.

Browning SOUTHBRIDGE, MASSACHUSETTS The stork, while navigating over the city of Palatka, Florida, dropped off Ralph, but he later decided that Southbridge, Massachusetts, was a good place, too. Before going North, however, Ralph convinced the University of Florida that he deserved a degree marked B. S. in M. E., and so with a law degree added he will turn his attention to elucidating the Patent Law here in Washington. Ralph is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa. sm Charles C. Brunner PORTLAND, OREGON Mr. Brunner has a B. S. degree from Johns Hopkins University, he also attended the Uni- versity of Oregon, and later the George Wash- ington University.

He will practice law in the D. C. t 95 ] Elden A. Cary FAIRFAX, VIRGINIA “Buck” is a product of Eastern High School of Washington. Being an extremely modest chap, it’s his pleasing personality and his eagerness to be of service that make him so well liked by our class. Buck is employed in the War Depart- ment.

Cunningham ALBERT LEA, MINNESOTA The Rule in Shelly’s Case and the ex ceptions to the hearsay rule will be fully explained to the gentry of Minnesota when Leo opens his law office.

Desjardins FALL RIVER, MASSACHUSETTS Armand received his A. B. degree from Na- tional University School of Economics, so it’s no wonder that with such a foundation as that the study of law came rather easy to him.

The w ar interfered with Harry’s completion of his studies at the State College, but his thirst for knowledge led him to National. Harry is a great hunter; he’s married and has three children. Russ, when he gets his LL. B. degree, will journey to his home state, “Missouri”, and open the biggest and busiest law office in the entire state. Laclede High School and Chilli- cothe Business College, in Missouri, were the two institutions of higher education that Russ attended before coming to National. He is em- ployed by the Bureau of Customs. Golf and hunting are his two delights. The school is the manufactory of humanity. — Comenius. [ 112 1 VIM IIIHIIlllllil Alex Feinberg George D.

CLARENDON, VIRGINIA It is our sincere hope that George will reach the same heights at law that he reaches in that trusty airplane, for he is not only an embryo lawyer, but quite an aviator, having completed a course at the National Flying School. George is well liked by everyone, and we know that with an LL. B. and an airplane he will be far over our heads. Happy landings, George.

C. and then later he expects to open a branch office in his home town. Jimmie went to Aquinas Institute of Rochester, and the Blessed Sacrament School.

B. degree from George Washington University, and while there he was admitted to the membership of the Honor So- ciety, the Phi Sigma Rho. When Irving be- gins his law practice in Washington, he will soon become one of the most distinguished members of the D. C. Bar. Irving’s interests are varied, for he is keen about baseball, music, reading, public speaking and debating. Swimming, hiking, driving, horseback riding, music and reading are all of interest to Miss French, and such an array of activities attests to the versatility of this young lady whom we call Frenchie. Wayne High School, in Ohio, and Strayer’s Business College were attended by Miss French. She does not expect to prac- tice law when she graduates, but right now has a secretarial position with the Supreme Coun- cil, 33 Degree.

Quinn WASHINGTON, D. C. True to the home town, this likeable Washing- tonian is going to remain in the District of Co- lumbia for the active practice of law.

Watch yourself ! You do what eases you. Tired of walking, you sit. Tired of sitting, you walk. If you are honest, you pay your debts because it eases you. If ignorance is irritating to you, then you seek knowledge. If mere knowl- edge leaves you uneasy, you try for understanding. If you are moved by ambition, you put your understanding to work. Where there is no uneasi- ness there is no action. Where there is action there is uneasiness. What a man is determines what he does. Watch other people! No two show the same reaction to the same stimulus. Great deeds show the doer had greatness in him. Little deeds tell a different story of a different man. The failure to live usefully is a demonstration of the in- active quality of uselessness. Living usefully shows the active quality of usefulness. Perhaps, as some say, ease rots a man, but mostly it shows him already rotted. “They too may serve who only stand and wait” is not true of them that only wait for something to turn up. I hat “some are born great” was said of position, not of accomplishment, and we have forgotten their names. The Class of ’33 believes in these things. Otherwise, it would not be. We believe that if a man has knowledge he can acquire understanding, and that if he has understanding he will show wisdom. We believe in pre- paring for the day of action, knowing that our conduct will be worthy only of ourselves. We believe in self-discipline and self-improvement as the only sure foundation of successful living. We know that education justifies itself, not alone because it is useful to the man, but because the man is made useful thereby. But industry is not enough. Progress is necessary. Consider the ants and bees. They have a perfect government to which they are perfectly obedient. They have solved the problem of the produc- tion and distribution of their wealth. Still, they are ants and bees ! t 198 ] MOOT COURT Oddities of the Law I N Zion, 111., it is a misdemeanor, punishable by a jail sentence, to make an ugly face at anyone. An ordinance prohibits the wearing of false whiskers in Los Angeles. It is illegal to sneeze on Sunday in West Virginia. A New York law prohibits sitting on a park bench with a newspaper as a seat pad. In Pennsylvania it is illegal to sing in the bathtub. A North Carolina law forbids the selling of gasoline during church hours. A Missouri statute requires that all innkeepers furnish their beds with sheets at least nine feet long. It is a violation of the Sullivan law in New York for a person who has found a gun to turn it over to the police. In Northfield, Conn., it is illegal to eat while proceeding along a street. It is a misdemeanor in Massachusetts to walk on the street with a dog on Sunday. Flying a kite within the city limits is unlawful in Norfolk, Va. In Maine persons walking on the streets with their shoelaces untied are subject to a fine. It is illegal to wear hatpins in theaters in Memphis. In Cleveland, Ohio, it is unlawful for two men to drink out of the same whisky bottle and get drunk at the same time. It is against the law in Newark, N. J., to sell ice after 6:00 P. M. without a doctor’s prescription. The punishment is thirty days in jail for stealing your neighbor’s bees in New Haven, Conn. In Evanston, 111., the penalty for robing or disrobing in public is regu- lated by the particular article, the fine being $2.50 for one shoe, $5.00 for both, etc. On Staten Island, N. Y., you may water your lawn provided you hold the hose in your hand while doing so, but to lay a hose on the lawn or to use a sprinkler is illegal. It is against the law in Erie, Pa., to fall asleep in a barber’s chair. Alma Mater Farewell Tune: Gaelic Melody ‘‘Believe Me.” Like the plaint of the ocean when chanting afar In the murmuring voice of the sea, Like the fragrance that lingers where violets are, Live the memories hallowed in thee, Alma Mater, but hark how the late evening bell And the homeward-way song of the lark Are in melody joining their tender farewell lo the day as they welcome the dark. While our parting portends that we share nevermore In the cares which so mingle with joy That they leave not a dream-shadow sorrow of yore We declare that no power can destroy All the fervor and faith of the days that are gone, Bring the years their disfavor or fame; For as fresh as the glittering dews of the dawn Shall our friendship be ever the same. Ira Dwight Scott. Juniors Junior Class History T HE Class of 1934, after a summer of recuperating from its initial plunge into law, returned with but few missing from its ranks and now advances are mere steps on the road leading to the LL.B. degree. We had hardly answered roll call when the political clouds began to gather, and the campaigning for officers of the Junior Class was on. When the storm broke and the tempest was over, the rainbow appeared, by which the class had benefited, for the successful candidates were: Robert Green- wood, president; John C. White, vice-president; Mrs. Anna L. Moulton, secretary; Barney Jones, treasurer; Roland N. Benninghoven, sergeant-at- arms; and Rachel Racoosin, historian. Through the efforts of George C. Shulz, chairman of the Constitu- tional Committee, and his able assistants, Ralph R. Reed, Laforest Sauls- bury and Joseph H. Henderson, the class, which had gone for a year with- out a constitution, evolved a set of working rules and has been nourishing under them. Eunice Johnston and her Brief Committee and Mr. Marshall and his Ring Committee were successful in helping the class raise and save money, which are great virtues in this day and time. The crowning feature of the class social season was the Junior Prom. Under the guidance of “Bob” Greenwood, the committee composed of John C. White, Charles F. Lanman, George R. Morris, Jr., Miss Leo Dunn, Elmer Haberkorn, James Flaherty, Frank Laskin and James J. Clancy suc- cessfully engineered the affair which was given in the main ballroom of the Hotel Mayflower. Leon Brusiloff personally conducted his ten-piece orchestra, which was one of the shining stars of the evening. The class was also fortunate in obtaining several dance numbers from Phil Hayden’s Studio, which added pep and entertainment during the evening. The Daw- son Brothers, formerly on Broadway and now members of our class, sang several popular numbers, and the class showed their appreciation by a great ovation. Our own Jim Flaherty, winner of the National Broadcasting and R. K. O. audition contest, favored us with several songs, and Jim received his well earned big hand. Jim also acted as our master of ceremonies. Everyone who attended had a fine time. The scholastic standing of the class as a whole has been very good. J. Louise Rowe received the Eugene Carusi medal for the highest average in the Freshman Class and “Bobby” Bransford honorable mention. “Bobby” also won the John Byrne Company Prize for the best examina- tion on Bills and Notes, with Conrad Christel as “runner-up.” As the year draws to a close we are reluctant to see our upper class- men, the seniors, make preparations to leave, for we have looked to them not only as examples, but as friends. When we, in our turn, resume the responsibilities they leave behind, we will try, in the same manner, to carry on the traditions of the school.

Freshmen History Class 1935 r I v HOSE who have tried to express on paper a representative showing of their knowledge of the “law of contracts’’ will sympathize with a his- torian trying to do justice to the activities of a class year at “National” in one page. There have been many things left unsaid — we look back upon our first year at “National,” full of memories impossible to record, and ask the reader (as we would have liked to ask our professors) to apply the doctrine of “Res ipsa loquitor.” The class of 1935 met for the first time “as such” on September 29th, 1932, in “Lower Hall” where we were fittingly launched on the boundless sea of law by the oratory of Dean Johnson and a number of members of the faculty whom we were soon to hear at greater length. The inspiration of these opening addresses has not left us. It initiated us to some extent into the spirit of “National” as we began from the first to look forward to our classes. Space limits the details of our class election. With “Bill” Mar tin (said to be the only thoroughly read author in school) acting as chairman, we had a lively election. The class has had good reason to be thankful for its selection of officers. We all feel indebted to them for establishing our class organization, and although the task must have seemed thankless at times, the efforts were appreciated by every member of the class. The officers and the committees set forth on the following pages deserve our sincere thanks. As we became hardened (or perhaps stunned) by the constant: “read (he next fifty pages,” we began to realize that “the law is a jealous mistress.” Our so-called social life consisted largely of that between-class cup of coffee at Pop’s. We wish to express our sincere appreciation to the members of the faculty under whom we studied during our Freshman year. Their con- sideration and patience will stay with us, as well as the memory of those professors, and the principles they propounded so thoroughly. We thank the graduating class for these pages in their “Docket” and wish them a successful future. T. R. Barker, Historian.

This, the largest class in the School’s history, has distin- guished itself in many ways. Its scholarship has been of a uniformly high grade; its ranks have held fast despite the ravages of economic depression; and its personnel is a token that the opportunity has been accepted of prepar- ing for the increasing demand of a complex modern society for adequately trained men and women, capable of meeting the challenges of a legal, governmental, or business career. Under the leadership afforded by the graduates of 1933 there has been a notable growth in what is known as “School Spirit,” and this of the high- est quality, based on an appreciation of fellowship in common studies. Through such media as the Segnu Forum, the Pi Alpha Epsilon Fraternity, the Philippine Columbians, the Crier, and the Docket, they have left an indelible stamp upon the student body and created worthwhile precedents for those who follow in their footsteps. It is with pride, and with genuine regret, that the faculty and Dean take leave of the graduates of 1933.

Ballad of the Fraternity of the Law Albeit gods and kings once gave the law And fantasied that fear might e’er profane The people’s faith to sacrifice in awe, The living law is human, social, sane; Not wrought by wildest changes bigot-swayed Though bathed in world-wide waves of blood and fire, The lasting law, communing minds have made, From substance of a growing world’s desire. One blatant consul shakes the temple door But singly sounds no summons so sublime As to assure his creeds forevermore Will echo down the corridors of time, Or Solomon or Sargon wake to thaw A C;esar’s heart; so tenets still require That Truth and Wisdom fortify the law Lest some Napoleon stay the world’s desire. The conqueror’s code his conquest well may close But son or sorceress queen of kindred kind, Who follow, seek in vain a seer who knows How kinship of the blood, instead of mind, M ay once control the deathless brotherhood Of sentinels of justice who conspire For constancy of law, while it is good, To cure the wrongs that warp the world’s desire. When Harold by the hand of William, fell On Hasting’s field, the conquering cousin’s brawn Could not command a power to foretell The dawning of the day, when weaker John W ould drop a Magna Charta from his hand, Unwillingly the tyrants to retire, And laws with new-found equity expand ' Fill they avouch the changing world’s desire. Now Daphne’s grove once green, in ruins lies, No more Apollo twangs his golden lyre, To-day’s dictating god to-morrow dies, — They stubborn yield to Time’s relentless ire ; Nor goddess, king, nor code, nor creed all-wise Can overcome the powers that inspire Unfailing vigil hosts who fraternize To save the law to serve the world’s desire. — Ira Dwight Scott. [ 240 ] Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) Joseph H. Choate (Alpha) Chapter Washington, D. C. S IGMA NU PHI Fraternity (Legal) is founded upon the honorable traditions of the ancient Order of the Coif, whose noble conceptions of the great good that a fellowship of select men pursuing attainment in the Law ' might bestow upon their fellows and mankind, have so beneficently influenced the development of legal ethics from the twelfth century to the present time as to be constantly reflected in every land where the system of jurisprudence is related to that of England. To per- petuate the spirit of such a brotherhood and ever increase its achievement in suppress- ing prejudice, fostering open-mindedness and combining courage with humility to the end that neither the progress of the individual nor the advancement of justice in the law shall ever be retarded by the defilement of the truth or the perversion of wisdom, are high among the purposes of this fraternity. The Joseph H. Choate Chapter was organized February 12, 1903, at National University and is the parent chapter of the National organization of Sigma Nu Phi. Declaration of Sigma Nu Phi United by the strong tie of true brotherhood in the law, we mutually resol ve to labor for the good of our order, our country and mankind. We w ' ill strive to pro- mote the well-being of students and practitioners of the law, and to cultivate the ethics of the profession. To secure harmony and maintain good will, thereby perpet- uating the brotherhood, it shall be our earnest endeavor to suppress personal, sectional, religious and political prej- udices, as well as all unhealthy rivalry and selfish ambition. To the end, therefore, that we achieve fraternal har- mony and lasting benefit, we humbly implore the guidance and assistance of the Ruler of the Universe. c ACTIVE CHAPTERS Joseph H.

Luhring February 10, 1933 AN OCCASION which will remain forever in the memory of Joseph H. Choate r Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity, was the meeting and banquet held Friday, February 10, 1933, at the fashionable Hay-Adams House for the purpose of con- ferring honorary membership upon Honorable Oscar R. Luhring, Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia. The exercises honoring Justice Luhring were attended by many distinguished guests, among whom were Hon. Patrick J. Hurley, Secretary of War ; Chief Justice Alfred A. Wheat and Associate Justices Jennings Bailey, Jesse C. Adkins, James M. Proctor, and F. Dickinson Letts of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia; Dr. Hayden Johnson, Chancellor of National University; and Theodore Cogswell, Register of Wills, D. C. Bro. Godfrey L. Munter, prominent Washington attorney, acted as toast- master and conferred the degree of honorary membership upon Justice Luhring and presented him with the plaque of Sigma Nu Phi. Responses of felicitation were made by Hon. Patrick J. Hurley, Secretary of War, Bros. Eugene R. Woodson and Edward S. Brashears of the Alumni, and Bro. Elwood H. Seal on behalf of the Executive Coun- cil of the National Chapter. Justice Luhring received his L.L.B. degree at the University of Virginia in 1900 and began the practice of law at Evansville, Ind., the same year, at the age of 21 ; he was a member of the Indiana House of Representatives 1903-1904; Assistant United States Attorney 1st Judicial Circuit 1904-1908; United States Attorney for the same district 1908-1912; member of the 66th and 67th Congresses from the 1st Indiana District 1919-1923; special assistant to the Secretary of Labor 1923-1925; Assistant United States Attorney General 1925-1930; and appointed Associate Justice of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia July, 1930. In his response, Secretary of War Hurley, among other remarks, told of the ex- periences gained and contacts made through Sigma Nu Phi and heartily endorsed college fraternities. Secretary of War Hurley received his legal training at National Uni- versity and is a member of Choate Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. The membership of Sigma Nu Phi wore white carnations and the guests pink. One of the most impressive parts of the convocation was the replacing of the white carnation for the pink one upon Justice Luhring by Bro. Munter, showing to all present his mem- bership in Sigma Nu Phi. The main address of the evening was delivered by Commander Robert A. Lavender of the United States Navy, who was radio engineer for the N. C. Naval Planes which first spanned the Atlantic ocean. He discussed the legal situations affecting American citizens in China and presented motion pictures of the Chinese territory which is now in the heart of the Sino-Japanese troubles. Entertainment consisting of musical selections was furnished by Bro. James W. Flaherty, Ralph H. Gauker, and Harry Woodward. Dr. Joseph F. Beattie supplied the humor. The committees on arrangements were: Reception Committee, Stanley E. Otto, Chairman; Degrees Committee, Frederick E. Robey, Chairman; Entertainment Committee, Ralph C. Vogel, Chairman, and House Committee, Markham W. Payne, Chairman. kf ' [ 244 ] BANQUET SIGMA NU PHI Sigma Nu Phi OFFICERS Chancellor Ira D. Scott 1 st Vice-Chancellor Stanley E.

Choate Chapter Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity A L1HOUGH the country went deeper into the red in its financial books during the year 1932-1933, your fraternity bookkeeper in posting “ I he Ledger” for that “ year has nothing but black letter entries of red letter days. Not only was there plenty of smoke at the Hay-Adams House at our guest night on Thursday, November 10, 1932, but the Entertainment Committee whipped it into a red- hot occasion with snappy entertainment under the able direction of Miss Rosalie Legge, mistress of ceremonies. The main treat of the evening was the speech of Justice Oscar R. Luhring of the D. C. Supreme Court bench who related many an amusing incident as well as helpful suggestions from his experience as a young attorney. The speaking was also augmented by talks from Bros. Godfrey L. Munter, Amos T. Pagter, Chester Guy, and our own officers. A buffet supper closed the evening’s entertainment. We next record the successful annual inter-chapter dance with the Holmes Chapter of the Washington College of Law on November 17, 1932, at the Columbia Country Club. “Ted” Rutley and his committee saw to it that the several hundred couples thoroughly enjoyed the Dagmoir music and regretted that the dance had to close at 2 a. m. The enjoyable time had has since formed the lively topic of many a conversation. Although it seems that the members of Choate Chapter were disappointed by placing too much faith upon leap year, “Gene” Carusi being the only one to take the fatal marital step, w T e nevertheless widened our fraternal circle to include the daughters born to the wives of John Shipman and “Bob” Greenwood. Oh ! I almost forgot to record that famous fishing party of a certain four, w T ho despite the rainy night and their anxious wfives, returned home the following day with- out even a fish bought at the local corner store. So successful w r as the banquet given on the occasion of conferring honorary mem- bership upon Justice Oscar R. Luhring, that your bookkeeper has already written this entry separately in the preceding pages. At the time of this entry the boys of Choate Chapter have not yet determined by what score they intend to beat the bowling team of Holmes Chapter, despite the slight discordant note of some of our less boastful members who claim that the chapter is tired dusting off the old cup and want to delegate that task to the Holmes Chapter. At our meeting of February 23rd, Chancellor Scott was presented wfith the fra- ternity shield, suitably engraved, for his services of merit. And lastly was the spring supper and dance given by the Choate Chapter wdth the Kappa Beta Pi Sorority of Na- tional University, held on April 21st at the Indian Spring Golf Club under the able direction of Chairman Ralph C. Vogel. And so to press before the coming events require further posting.

II Each chapter shall establish and maintain a high standard of scholarly attainment which shall be an essential requirement for admission to it and a controlling rule of conduct for its members. III Members shall scrupulously avoid any dishonorable means of obtaining scholastic credit or passing the examination for admission to the Bar, for the cheating student of today is the shyster of tomorrow, and deserves no place within the order of Phi Beta Gamma. IV All members and chapters shall observe the laws and honor the traditions of the respective universities with which they are affiliated, so they may retain the approval and inspire the confidence of such universities. V The officers of all chapters shall accept as their paramount duty the establishment of contact between the student members of their chapter and eminent, honorable and exemplary members of the legal profession, so that the characters of its members may be strengthened and their ambitions fired to worthy attainment. VI Each chapter and its members shall actively contribute to the improvement of the educa- tional facilities and the raising of the standing of the university with which it is connected to the end that the opportunities of their future brethren, who shall perpetuate this brotherhood, may be bettered and the American Bar benefited. VII Graduate members shall observe and obey the Canons of the American Bar Association and the unwritten ethics of the legal profession so they may attain that high plane of professional honor which is required of them. VIII Graduate members shall so shape their conduct and affairs that they may be qualified in all respects, both moral and professional, to associate with gentlemen, to minister in the forum of justice, and earn the respect and inspire the confidence of the world.

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 Chancellor 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 National University Masonic Club and the place which it occupies in our school life should be written without some mark of respect and tribute to George Walter Smith, who for many years has served as Chaplain-Almoner. Bro. Smith has served in practically every official position of this splendid organiza- tion, and by his untiring devotion to the ideals and purposes for which it was founded has won for himself the well deserved title of “Father” of the Club. The Club this year departed from its long established custom of holding a banquet, and gave a dance instead, which proved to be one of the greatest social successes in the history of the Club. ' 1 ' he Club is grateful to Bros. Otto, Delancey, Schwab and others who were responsible for the success of the dance. HONORARY MEMBERS W. A. Bastian Turin B. Boone L. A. Dent G. E. Edelin Hon.

HOWARD [ 262 ] Cy Pres Club SHORTLY after women students were first admitted to the National University Law School, four far-sighted young ladies in the year of 1920 organized a Club, in which all women members of the law school would be eligible for membership and called it the Cy Pres Club of National University. The purpose of the organization is to help its members advance in the study of the law and to promote good fellowship in the student body. To carry out this purpose the Club holds bi-monthly meetings, and in addition, sponsors a number of social lunctions each year. The meetings promote a closer relationship among the women and tend to enlarge their mutual inter- ests, as on these occasions persons prominent in the profession are invited to address the club on subjects of interest to women aspiring to enter the legal profession. The outstanding social event is the annual banquet, held Feb- ruary 22nd, to which all members, their friends, faculty and alumni are invited. During the past year the Club was incorporated and granted a charter as the Cy Pres Club of National University. Steps are now being taken to build up a Cy Pres Alumnae as it is believed such an organization would be of mutual benefit to the alumnae as well as the present members of the Club. ■ ' Mrs. HAZEL PWILBRICK fTrea surer Miss.

Its progressive and earnest endeavors have enabled it to become one of international scope and influence. At present there are forty-one student and eight alumnae chapters of Kappa Beta Pi in recognized law schools in the United States, Canada, and trance, it being the first fraternal organization, general or professional, to install a chapter on the European Continent. Many Kappas have achieved signal success. 1 he most distinguished in the United States are Judge Genevieve R. Cline of the United States Customs Court of Appeals; Judge Florence E. Allen of the Supreme Court of Ohio; Judge Mary Bartelme, Cir- cuit Court, Illinois; Judge Kathryn Sellers of the Juvenile Court of the District of Columbia; Judge Mary B. Grossman and Judge Lillian Westropp, Cleveland, Ohio; Judge Theresa Meikle, San Francisco, California; Judge Ida May Adams, Los Angeles, California; Judge Alberta Wright, Missouri; Miss Kathryn O’Laughlin, Congresswoman-elect from Kansas; and our own Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean emeritus, Washington College of Law. Our distinguished sisters abroad are Madame Suzanne Grinberg, France; Judge Freda Bahl and Dr. Maria Hagemeyer, Germany; Dr. Edith Ringwald-Meyer, Switzerland; Dr. Eugenie Lekkerkerker, Netherlands; Dr .

The desire to promote good fellowship among women of mutual interest resulted in a petition to the Grand Chapter of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority for membership. The coveted charter was granted by Grand Dean Kathryn O’Loughlin McCarthy, now Congresswoman, and on May 3, 1921, Omicron Chapter was instituted in National University. Motivated by Kappa’s high standards and scholastic requirements, the chapter has progressed toward its goal of fellowship and service, keeping pace with the steady increase of women students at the University. Early, these pioneers realized that the pledge for service embraced a field larger than its membership and when the opportu- nity for service to others arose, the sorority was able through the generosity of our late Dean Charles F. Carusi to meet this need, and each year since 1925 Omicron has awarded a scholarship to a woman who otherwise could not pursue a legal education. Omicron stands ready to aid women students with their legal problems and to endorse any movement tending to raise the standards of the legal profession, being par- ticularly interested in the removal of restrictions against women in all professions. While the primary purpose of this sorority is to further the interests of its members in the legal field it nevertheless sponsors numerous social activities which tend to promote a feeling of mutual friendship and understanding.

Frigillana Pablo P. Mamaril Vice President Secretary T reasurer Manuel A. Argel Jose A. Urquico Maraino C. Pimentel Student Reporter Representative to Student Body Historian MESSAGE W E ARE about to bid goodbye to the Alma Mater, perhaps never again to enter its halls. And we shall certainly miss that contact with the Student Body which has enabled us to learn something from Amer- ica’s institutions and know more about her young people. However, we have cause for rejoicing. 1 he dominating ideal of the Philippine Columbians, like any number of Filipino organizations where- ever they may be, is to strive for the independence of our country. That ideal is now nearing its realization, for on January 17, 1933 — a memorable date in American-Philippine history — the Congress of the United States passed an Act (Public, No. 31 1, 72c! Congress) : “To enable the people of the Philippine Islands to adopt a constitution and form a government for the Philippine Islands, to provide for the independence of the same, and for other purposes.” This is the first time in history that a people of one race obtains liberty and independence from another, not through war and bloodshed but by means of constitutional processes and in an atmos- phere of peace. We accept the Philippine Independence Act as America’s proffer of independence. We shall count the hardships and difficulties that may come our way as the cost of freedom, the price of liberty. We believe America means to be just to us. And that belief coupled with the Filipinos’ desire to mold their own destiny shall encourage us to forge ahead and continue marching on. It will not be long until the students and young citizens of today will be the professors and statesmen of tomorrow. In a little more than a de- cade, we hope to inaugurate the Philippine Republic. And when that his- toric event occurs, we shall observe it with joy and thankfulness; joy, be- cause of the triumph of a righteous cause and the consummation of our su- preme ideal; thankfulness, because the people and government of America, through their official spokesmen, have not only redeemed a promise so honorably made, but helped build the first Christian Republic in the Far East. Now as in the years to come, it will be our purpose to continue the amicable relations existing between the youths of America and the Philip- pines and preserve that bond of friendship which neither time nor distance can efface.
