IN MEMOR1AHI GLENN WILLETT Late Professor of the Law of Contracts and Legal Liability Late Judge of the Law Branch of the Moot Court Beloved by all who knew him the Class of 1935 SORROWFULLY DEDICATES THESE PAGES IN HONOR OF HIS MEMORY THE DOCKET JOHN L. CASSIN ASSISTANT DEAN OF THE LAW SCHOOL SECRETARY OF THE BOARD OF TRUSTEES THE DOCKET The Inaugural of George Wash- ington as the first President of the United States; he being also the first to suggest to the Con- gress the advisability of estab- lishing a national university in the District of Columbia . I NSPIRED by the messages of Presidents Washington, Madison and others, W. B. Wedge- wood, Arthur MacArthur, Eugene Carusi, Richard H. Alvey, and their eight associates first incorporated the National University in 1869 under the General Incorporation Law of the District of Columbia. Later the Congress of the United States by a special Act (29 Statutes at Large, 194) granted a broad charter to the original incorporators with full power “to grant and confer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees ' During the first part of its existence, the National University had the honor of having- five Presidents of the United States as Chancellors Ex-Officio. They were Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland. The first diplomas awarded were conferred personally by these Presidents. The Law School is one of the oldest in the United States and there have been graduated from it over seven thousand students. Among their number are many who have achieved distinction at the local Bar, others who have become Judges of national reputation, and still others who have served in Congress and other high official capacities. 13 u.s. The Inaugural of President Roosevelt March 4, 1933 F RANKLIN DELANO ROOSEVELT did not invent the New Deal. It is only by chance that he administers it, for it would have come without him. The New Deal was permanently born when Wall Street crashed in October 1929. It had to come with the growth of industrial power, of mass production and the end of mass immigration. The main economic factor underlying the New Deal is the very simple fact that we can and did produce more than enough for everyone in this country. Roosevelt’s greatest contributions to the people through the New Deal have been hope, action and to a limited extent, national and international respect. 14 The Political “PropolitioiY Unless these New Deal Democrats, Stop pulling bureaus out of hats, I fear that we will have to get A new and larger alphabet. Now, what this country needs today Is less and less of N. R. A. B. U. N. K. and E. T. C. But more and more of C. O. D. For in the sweet, sweet bye and bye Somebody has to P. A. Y. For all this “Jack” the U. S. A. Is handing out so free today. Our star of hope is growing dim ; We’ll soon be on the B. U. M. We’ll struggle, starve and break our necks, To meet the future T. A. X. Unless I make an N. G. guess It’s time to sound an S. O. S. And stop this flood of I. O. U. And I mean stop it, P. D. C. So I beseech you, F. D. R. Don’t stretch the alphabet too far, My shirt is gone, now, mister, please, Don’t take away my B. V. D.’s. 15 BOOK ORE “And then the justice. In fair round belly with good capon lin’d.

During this emergency, the New Deal Congress has deemed it necessary and proper to confer upon President Roosevelt broader and more sweeping powers than those possessed by any other previous peace-time President in the history of the United States.

No man has earned the right to claim intellectual achieve- ment until he has learned to lay his course by a star which he has never seen — to dig by the divining rod for springs which he may never reach.” “In saying this, I point to that which will make your thinking and your life heroic. Thus only can you gain the secret joy of the accurate thinker who knows that, one hundred years after he is dead and forgotten, men who have never heard of him will be moving in the measure of his thought ' JUSTICE OLIVER WENDELL HOLMES SETUORS 41 THE CHARLES PERGLER Patron of the Class of 1935 Director of Graduate Studies Professor of Constitutional Law mid Jurisprudence Member of the Law Faculty of National University DOCKET THE DOCKET THE DOCKET Address to Newly Admitted Members of the Bar By Hon. Frances Martin Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the State of Nezv York Delivered at the House of the Association of the Bar in New York City, February 25, 1935 Mr. President, Mr. Chairman, Members and Guests of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York: I very much appreciate the invitation of the Association of the Bar of the City of New York to be present this evening to meet the newly admitted members of the Bar. It is not often that an Appellate Division judge has the opportunity to talk to the newly admitted or younger members. You pass through our court room the day you are sworn in as attorneys, but from that day we generally lose sight of you. During the next four or five years you are busy in some office, or in a library doing research work, or in the lower courts, and as a general rule it is not until you have become lawyers of experi- ence that we see you again. There have been a few instances where young lawyers, within a short time after they have been admitted to the Bar, have appeared in the appellate courts and argued cases in a very creditable manner. They, however, are the exceptions to the rule, for it takes considerable experience properly to present a case on appeal. The average young man, after he has been admitted, has a long, difficult road to travel before he becomes a successful practitioner. In my talk this evening I may say something that will be useful to you as practicing attorneys ; some suggestion of mine may make your path easier in your journey to the heights of success in the profession. The first subject I shall touch upon is one that is of concern to all young attorneys. You have been told that the profession of the law is “too crowded” ; that there are “too many lawyers. ” To a certain extent those statements are not only true, but have been true for years. Similar statements were made when I was a young man starting out in the practice of the law, and I admit they were rather discouraging. Experience has shown that the profession is too crowded with incompetent lawyers ; men who will not work and who do not and cannot stand above their fellows. 44 THE DOCKET If that is the kind of lawyer you intend to- become then you will have plenty of competition, as every court is filled with such lawyers. There never was a time, however, in the history of the Bar when well-equipped and capable lawyers had greater opportunities to succeed in the profession. As you have decided upon the law as a career, I urge you to bend every effort to make yourselves better-than-average lawyers. Now is the time to start your journey to the top of the profession. See to it that every paper, brief or case that you have anything to do with is well considered and care- fully prepared. The courts are hampered in their work by carelessly drawn papers and poorly tried cases of the incompetent, slipshod and indifferent lawyer. To be a success as a lawyer, and that is undoubtedly the ambition of every man here this evening, you must have a love of justice, a well-trained mind, with a thorough understanding of the principles of the law, the ability correctly to apply established principles to concrete circumstances, a knowledge of human nature, the courage of your convictions, an unlimited capacity for work and a sterling character. You must have real moral stamina. No one who is weak, hesitating or vacillating can succeed at the Bar. In the law, more than in any other pro- fession, men fail of greatness because they lack moral backbone. Remember always that you should not permit your desire to win a case or to obtain a fee to overcome your duty to aid in the administration of justice. “A good name is rather to be desired than great riches.” I know there are thousands of lawyers who will not lend themselves to oppression and fraud, who will not stoop to trickery for temporary gain, who prefer to be known as men of character rather than as men of wealth, who stand for the high ideals and the principles which are the true foundations of our profession. Such men today have the respect of the entire community, and many of them hold the highest positions in our city, state and nation. There is no doubt but that in the nationwide, even worldwide, changes now under way in our industrial, social and political structure a vigorous and fearless Bar will reassume the great role played by it in the past. In closing, let me quote from that great legal scholar, Sir Frederick Pollock : “Remember that you are servants of the commonwealth and are devoted not to a trade, but to a science. Remember that the law of which we are ministers is a law of the courts and of the people. Remember that it is your office as lawyers to give authentic form to the highest public morality of which you are capable as citizens, and that this office belongs of right no less to the Bar than to the Bench.” 45 THE DOCKET T OR three years we have labored together, under- taking mutual tasks in the study of the law and in the activities of the class. The success of our undertakings has been due to the efforts of the in- dividual members who have worked unselfishly to further the interests of the class. To those individ- uals this page is dedicated, in grateful, although in- adequate, recognition of their services to the class, and in sincere appreciation of the support they have given to the class officers. As a class we have attained our goal. Now, in- dividually, we go forward to bring honor and suc- cess to ourselves and to our profession, through the diligent application of the principles we have learned together. To all the members of the class I wish the full measure of success to which they are so right- fully entitled.

Ewen Florence Horigan A erg eant-at- Arms Historian Charles W. Proctor Editor 48 = THE DOCKET THE DOCKET S we, the graduating class of 1935, assume our positions in the ranks of the legal profession, let us remember those words of wisdom, “The law is a jealous mistress.” Success in the legal profession comes only to those who strive honestly and unceasingly for the good of the profession, constantly bearing in mind the para- mount duty of integrity and unswerving loyalty. There will be times when difficult problems con- front us, problems calling for clear thinking and well-balanced judgment, and it is then that our train- ing received while students at National University will stand us in good stead. We have before us an uncharted future, a future which offers us countless possibilities and oppor- tunities to prove ourselves worthy of the name lawyers. With God’s guidance and help may we do credit to them and to ourselves. — GORDON WADE RULE Selected as Valedictorian by the President of the Class of 1935 50 THE DOCKET THE DOCKET This book is of the University Its pages are inspired by devotion to the institution And seek to portray a glorious year of its history And though the days are gone — we know That all the turmoil of events which made the year Will live in memory And so The time which study has claimed — and friendship — labor — love All the precious hours of existence Here within the walls of National We tried to so record that you who turn these pages in after years May spend a happier hour When you seek the pleasures of remembering. —CHARLES W.

Frances Anderson CITRONETLE, ALABAMA Andy comes from way down south in Alabama. She started with us in the fall of 1932, and has since earnestly pursued the study of the law, although it is rumored that she has a yen for art. She works for Uncle Sam at present and according to her own statement, expects to continue so to do after graduation. She registers as single, so there still is a chance for some lucky fellow. Salus Popnli Suprema Lex. (That regard be had to the public welfare, is the highest law.) 57 THE DOCKET Thomas J. Anderson MINNEAPOLIS, MINNESOTA Tommy came out of Minnesota to take his prelegal work at George Washington University and then entered National U. for his “grind” toward this L.L.B. degree which he will receive in June. He is very loath to speak of himself or his accomplish- ments, but we assume he, like all good law graduates, intends to practice law. His friends and classmates feel sure he will be successful. C. Newell Atkinson PATATINE, NEW JERSEY Newell calls Palatine his legal domicile and expects to return there to practice. He is a graduate of the Washington Missionary College and a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. His hobbies are riding, music and painting.

(That rule of conduct is to be deemed binding which religion dictates.) 59 THE DOCKET Job Barnard WASHINGTON, D. C. Job has a star on which to hang his legal career, his grandfather having been Judge of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, and like grandfather, like grand- son. Job is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity and the Temple Noyes Lodge, No. 32, F.A.A.M. Swimming and golf are his favorite hobbies. While the Solicitors’ Office in the Department of Agri- culture now pays his salary, he intends later on to strike out for himself as a practicing attorney in the D. C., common law pleading to the contrary notwithstanding. Candidate for LL.B. Frederick E. Bauer BERLIN, GERMANY This young man comes from Berlin, Ger- many. After attending nine different high schools in various cities in Germany and four engineering schools he had the far- sightedness to come to National for his law degree.

Blake ALBUQUERQUE, NEW MEXICO Frederic is a roving student, starting from Albuquerque, New Mexico. He received an LL.B. from the Atlanta Law School and passed the Georgia Bar.

He is now employed in the Reconstruction Finance Corpo ration, but intends to foresake Uncle Sam for the practice of law in Washington and Maryland. Candidate for LL.B. Jack P. Bonner FREMONT, OHIO Ohio not only produces presidents but aspiring young lawyers as well. Although Jack was born in Ohio, he was educated in the National Capital, having graduated from McKinley High School. He is a member of Sigma Phi Delta fraternity. Jack’s ability to cross examine expert witnesses is ex- plained by the fact that he is a law clerk in a local firm and he expects to make a special place in that office for himself when he has framed his LL.B. Ad Ea Quae Frequentius Accidunt Jura Adoptantur. (The laws are adopted to those cases which most frequently occur.) 63 THE DOCKET Edith Margaret Boyle PADUCAH, KENTUCKY This ex-banker lady was born in Paducah, Kentucky, where she lived until just a few years ago, when she forsook the State of her birth and migrated to Washington. She was first employed by the Veterans Admin- istration, but she has made a good start in her law career by having been transferred to the Department of Justice Tax Division. Edith has taken an active part in school affairs, being a member of the Cy Pres and the Kappa Beta Pi, serving as its Chan- cellor in her Senior year. She says she has no hobby, but from her record we think it will be specializing in tax work. Candidate for LL.B. Henry J. Brown DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA A modest, retiring young man, is H. J., and it was necessary to threaten dire things in order to elicit the fact from him that he was graduated with an A.B. from the Uni- versity of Washington. After cross-exam- ination he revealed that he is a member of Sigma Nu fraternity. At present Henry is a law clerk and intends to practice right here in the District of Columbia when he has passed the Bar. Rex Non Debet Esse Sub Homine, Sed Sub Deo Et Sub Lege , Quia Lex Facit Regem .

Together with the study of law he manages to show a marked vir- tuosity in music, photography and short- hand. He is a member of the Naval Lodge No. 4, F. A. A. M. He says he does not intend to practice law, but should he do so, we wish him the best of success. Candidate for LL.B. Nathan M. Brown WILMINGTON, DELAWARE Nathan attended Wilmington High School and George Washington University and, since he decided to become a lawyer, wisely selected National for his law training. He is a member of Sigma Alpha Rho Fraternity and likes to indulge his sporting instincts by playing water polo. His special saying is “Honi soi, qui mal v pence” and whatever it means we hope it has to do with law or its related subjects. Washington will benefit by this candidate ' s admission to the Bar. Rex Numquam Maritur. (The king never dies.) 65 THE DOCKET Edward A. Callan BALTIMORE, MARYLAND This candidate for the LL.B. is an out- standing service man. When he was retired from the Marine Corps in 1926, after having completed 30 years and 21 days service, he was commended by Major General Com- mandant John A. Lejeune, U. S. M. C. and the Secretary of the Navy. He was cited for gallantry under hre at Cape Haitien, Haiti, in January, 1914. While at Cavite, P. I., in 1908-09, he served as Warden at the U. S. Naval Prison. He was also Special Corres- pondent for the New York Herald at Haiti and Vera Cruz. This classmate of ours was the founder of the Marines Magazine and has been Manager of the Nallac News Serv- ice at Washington, and is a special contribu- tor of service news in the Washington Star. Although Baltimore claims him as its own, he has served the U. S. in the Marine Corps in practically every country. He is now National Commandant of the Veterans Marine Corps Legion. Study seems to be a habit with him. Ryland C. Bryant, Jr. WASHINGTON, D. C. Ryland is a Washington boy for whom may be predicted great prominence and success. He was born in Washington and after graduating from a local high school attended George Washington University. He is a member of Sigma Phi Epsilon Fra- ternity at George Washington. At present he is in the Public Works Administration but if conditions permit and the remunera- tion is sufficient, he will join the ranks of practicing attorneys in the District of Col- umbia. Rex Non Potest Peccare. (The king can do no wrong.) 66 THE DOCKET Mary R. Cavis BOISE, IDAHO Mary, being a young lady of rare judg- ment, came back to National this year to complete her law school work. She comes from Boise, but liked Washington so well that she stayed to attend Strayers Business College and to embark on her law career. She is a member of the Cy Pres Club and of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority. Horses are her hobby. She is now employed as an underwriter in a local insurance firm and she expects to specialize in insurance law when the District Bar Examiners present her name to the Court for admission to the Bar. Wilma Christine Chandler KALISPELL, MONTANA “Billy” is from Kalispell, Montana, and is the second member of her family to grad- uate from National. She says that tennis is her hobby, but we think her pen and ink sketches should receive honorable mention. While at present she is secretary to a local attorney she intends to practice law in Kalispell, her home town, when she receives her LL.M. and M.P.L. Candidate for LL.B. Non Potest Rex Gratiam Facere Cum Injuria Et Damno Aliorum. (The king cannot confer a favor on one subject which occasions injury and loss to others.) 67 THE DOCKET Lionel A. Clover FREDERICKSBURG, VIRGINIA Lionel is one of the boys from across the river and like all true Virginians is fond of horseback riding and poetry.

Good luck, Lionel, and success to you in the practice of law ! Candidate for LL.B. Robert E. Clifford HAVERHILL, MASSACHUSETTS Bob came to Washington from Haverhill, Massachusetts, where he attended Haverhill High School and Bryant and Stratton Com- mercial School at Boston. His hobby is watching the Washington Senators play baseball on Sunday and in his spare time he is a clerk in the General Accounting Office. His plans for the future, he states, are un- certain, but if Uncle Sam will pay him enough, he will stay in the government ; if not, he intends to practice law in Boston. Candidate for LL.B. Nullum Tempus Occurrit Regi. (Lapse of time does not bar the right of the Crown.) G8 THE DOCKET Lester R. Conley ALDEN, KANSAS Les comes from Alden, Kansas, but now lives in Alexandria, Virginia. He holds a teacher’s certificate from Sterling College, Sterling, Kansas, and is a graduate of the Chillicothe Business College, Chillicothe, Missouri. He is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, and to use his favorite expression, he will “undoubtedly’ succeed in the practice of the law. If he is as assiduous in his application to the law as he was in his assignment of class activities, he will surely arrive. He is now Corres- pondent on the Executive Staff of the White House. Candidate for LL.B. Ruhl L. Cooper CLARKSBURG, WEST VIRGINIA “Mutt” is one of our very modest young classmates and the Committee only secured the information for this sketch by making- dire threats. He obtained his pre-legal edu- cation at George Washington University and then changed over to National. He enveigled his Honor the suretyship pro- fessor into giving him ioo per cent. “Mutt” has the honor of being “left-hand” man to the Attorney General of the United States being employed in the Anti-Trust Depart- ment of the Department of Justice. He will practice law wherever the inducement is most attractive. Quando Jus Domini Regis Et Subditi Concurrunt, Jus Regis Praeferri Debet . (Where the title of the king and the title of a subject concur, the king’s title shall be preferred.) 69 THE DOCKET William E. Day WASHINGTON, D. C. Bill is another member of the voteless throng. Unassuming and retiring in manner he is a regular fellow. His particular hobby is golf, but we think he should stick to tennis. While at present he is a printing pressman, he hopes some day, although he does not know how, when or where, to practice law. He is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. Candidate for LL.B. Fred Ralph Demino BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT Fred first saw the light of day in Bridge- port, Connecticut. He says his hobby is trying to break ioo, and watching others do it. He graduated from the Samuel Johnson Academy and is now an Inspector in the E. W. A. He expects to practice law in the District of Columbia and we predict for him success at the Bar. Roy N’est Lie Per Ascun Statue, Si II Ne Soit Expressement Nosme. (The king is not bound by any statute, if he be not expressly named to be so bound.) 70 THE DOCKET Karl Dieffenbach GARRET PARK, MARYLAND Karl is another free-stater, who will be the conservative of tomorrow. Early in his career he became distinguished as a most convincing debater, and won the interclass debating competition during his Junior year. He hasn’t quite decided what his future plans are, but we predict for him oratorical success at the Bar. Candidate for LL.B. Ragan M. Doub HAGERSTOWN, MARYLAND Ragan originally hailed from Hagerstown, Maryland, hut came to Washington for his education. He attended George Washington University, is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity and is a Mason. He is now salesman for the Beech-Nut Packing Com- pany, and what an advertiser he is ! Anytime you will find his neighbors in class sampling his goods, wares and merchandise. While he does not promise to practice law, we know that if he decides to, he will be a success. Candidate for LL.B. Audi Alteram Partem. (No man should be condemned unheard.) 71 THE DOCKET Edward F. Duffy WASHINGTON, D. C. Ed entered National after having received his B.S. degree from Springfield and his M.A. from Columbia University.

He is an agent in the Investigation Division of the Interior De- partment and while he says he “reverences the law lest it harass him,” he is still not sure whether or not he intends to practice. From his record we are sure, however, he will go far. Candidate for LL.B. Virginia A. Dulin WASHINGTON, D. C. Virginia is a member of the Bar of the District of Columbia and has already built a solid foundation for her law career. She is now learning the practical application of the law in the office of Colonel Bailey, with whom she is associated. Virginia has been very active in school affairs. She was Secre- tary of the Cy Pres Club in her Freshman year and Vice-President in her Senior year. She was Corresponding Registrar of the Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority in her Junior year and Marshal in the present year. In addition she has served on the Membership and Executive Committees of the Class. We wish you the best of fortune and success! Candidate for LL.B. Nemo Patriam In Qua Natus Est Exucre Nec Ligeantine Debitum Ejurare Possit. (A man cannot abjure his native country nor the allegiance which he owes to his sovereign.) 72 THE DOCKET Margaret H. Earley DISTRICT OF COLUMBIA Peggy is another bona fide native of the Capital. Before coming to National she graduated from Notre Dame Academy. This Irish lassie has been kept very busy since entering law school; she has served on sev- eral class committees and is a member of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority and of the Cy Pres Club. Cy Pres elected her Reporter in 1933 and President in 1934 and she was one of the main stays of the Docket Com- mittee in 1934. While she is at present em- ployed by the telephone company, Peggy has very high aspirations for the future in law, and we know that she’ll get there, having already been admitted to practice before the D. C. Bar. Edgar Hurtt Edelen ROSSLYN, VIRGINIA Edgar adopted Virginia as his residence when his home State changed its politics. Elucidating and illuminating fellow class- mates on the subject of temperance is his favorite hobby. He says he is a Southern Gentleman of Leisure, and that he expects some day to hold a Gubernatorial Office in Maryland. Edgar’s chief bid for fame at National is his ability to debate with gusto. Candidate for LL.B. Nemo Debet Esse Judex In Proria Sua Causa . (No man can be judge in his own cause.) 73 THE DOCKET Milton Edelson WASHINGTON, D. C. Milton is a native born Washingtonian and attended George Washington University and Temple University. He is a member of Alpha Kappa Sigma Fraternity. At one time Milton worked at the Weather Bureau and while he could forecast weather he was not taught to read the mind of examining pro- fessors. He decided that if he could ma ke money for someone else, he could make it for himself and he is now conducting his own grocery business. His future plans are undecided, but we think that the well-known dollar will decide his fate. Candidate for LL.B. degree. Travis H. Edwards WACO, TEXAS Waco, Texas, claims Travis as its own. He holds the Degree of Bachelor of Busi- ness Administration from the University of Texas ; is a member of the Masonic Study Club and also of Sigma Delta Kappa Legal Fraternity. Answering the question as to his intentions to practice law we find several question marks, but we expect some day to find Travis’ name among the legal lights in Texas matters. He is now employed in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Candidate for LL.B. Actus Curiae N eminent Gravabit. (An act of the Court shall prejudice no man.) 74 THE DOCKET James E. Ewen ANDERSON, INDIANA Jim is a Hoosier, but came to Washington for his higher education. He attended George Washington University then entered National to earn his LL.B. He maintained order in the Senior class, but says he would rather have been out golfing or fishing. He is a member of the Warren G. Harding Lodge No. 39, but he makes his living as an Audit Reviewer in the General Accounting Office. If the conduct of his Moot Court case is any criterion, Jim will be a success- ful lawyer. Paul Vincent Finegan RICHMOND, VIRGINIA Born in Richmond, Virginia, this candidate for the LL.B. at National obtained his early schooling at Gonzaga High School, Emer- son Institute, George Washington Univer- sity and National University School of Economics and Government, where he ob- tained his A.B. degree in 1934. That he is a very sociable, likeable fellow is evidenced by the fact that he is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, Newman Club of George Washington University, The Friars of George Washington University, The St. Thomas Men’s Club, and the Young Demo- crats of the District of Columbia. Paul goes in for riding, bicycling, swimming and hiking. Somehow he manages to be Pay- master at the Washington Times-Herald, and he says that some day he hopes to practice law. Candidate for LL.B. Actus Legis Nemini Est Damnosus. (An act in law shall prejudice no man.) 75 ffis THE DOCKET Jack Leon Folstein WASHINGTON, D. C. This versatile candidate deserted account- ancy for law. He attended Central High School in this city and the Benjamin Frank- lin University before coming to National for his LL.B. He admits of no wonders and no achievements but we think he is too bashful to tell what they are. He is a member of Alpha Delta Omega Fraternity and is not employed. Apparently has made the study of law his hobby. Like other good graduates of National he expects to practice in the District. James Ross Gamble ENFIELD, CONNECTICUT Ross started out to be a good secretary by attending the Washington School for Secre- taries but decided later that he would prefer to be a lawyer. In the meantime, he is secretary to a consulting engineer in Wash- ington. He is another one of our modest classmates but we expect big things from this candidate. His plans for the future at present are tentative but we expect to see his name among the legal luminaries some day, and National will be proud that he was a member of the 1935 class. In Fictione Juris Semper Aequitas Existit. (A legal Fiction is always consistent with equity.) 76 THE DOCKET William T. Geier WASHINGTON, D. C. This young aspirant to the LL.B. degree returned to National after an absence of several years in order that he might be a full-fledged practioneer before our courts. He is now associated with a patent attorney in this City and expects to practice in that field, where, we understand, clients are plen- tiful and fees are the largest. Billy is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fra- ternity. We are glad he returned to Na- tional to graduate with the 1935 class. Candidate for LL.B. Newell A. George KANSAS CITY, KANSAS After a year and a half of law in the Kansas City School of Law, Newell came to National U. to get his degree. He at- tended the Wentworth Military Academy Junior College and Preparation School in Lexington, Missouri, and is a member of the Snyder Senate of Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity. He varied his preparation for a legal career by engaging in the manly art of boxing. His favorite speech is “Continue the New Deal !” and we wonder if this is because he is in the Treasurer’s Office of the R. F. C. Kansas will benefit by his accomplishments, but we expect to see him back again some day as a chosen represen- tative of his home state. Executio Juris Non Habet Injuriam. (The law will not in its executive capacity work a wrong.) 77 THE DOCKET Robert B. Gilman BRIDGEPORT, CONNECTICUT Bob is one of the bright stars in our scholastic firmament, having won the John Byrne prize in Bills and Notes in his Fresh- man year and received honorable mention for the highest scholastic average in his first year and won second place in Real Property Text in his second year. He holds a B.S. from George Washington University, but he says he prefers to play the zither. He is a mighty fine fellow, and after he passes the Bar he expects to practice patent law in Washington, D. C. Candidate for LL.B. Ethel Ginberg WASHINGTON, D. C. Ethel displayed her quality of leadership and cooperation in everything she undertook during her candidacy for the LL.B. She served on several committees during her first two years and, in her Senior year, accepted the Business Managership of the Docket and the Chairmanship of the Cy Pres Banquet, 1935. Ethel attended George Washington University, is a member of the Cy Pres Club and was instrumental in organizing the Xi Chapter of Iota Tau Tau Sorority. While at present she is Secretary to the First Assistant Superintendent of Schools we expect to see her shingle hang- ing high and with the firm of Ethel Gin- berg Bros. Cursus Curiae Est Lex Curiae. (The practice of the Court is the law of the Court.) 78 THE DOCKET Joseph Ginberg WASHINGTON, D. C. Another member of the future firm of Ethel Ginberg Bros. Joe attended George Washington University where, in addition to being a good student, he played basketball with the team. He belongs to the Young- Democrats Club and is very active in that organization. Right now he is employed by the Federal Housing Administration, but expects to later follow in the footsteps of his brother and practice in the District of Columbia. Lewis Michael Glass CONWAY SPRINGS, KANSAS Conway Springs, Kansas, is the birthplace of this enterprising young law student. He received his pre-legal education at George Washington University and had the far- sightedness to come to National for his LL.B. He is a member of Phi Sigma Kappa Fraternity. He confesses to being a sea- farer and some day expects to sail to Shang- hai where he will hang out his shingle. The class wishes him the best of luck as he now takes his leave with his LL.B. tucked safely away. Consensus Tollit Errorem. (The acquiescence of a party who might take advantage of an error obviates its effect.) 79 THE DOCKET Henry S. Goodman PORTLAND, INDIANA Henry made his first appearance privately as a citizen of Portland, Indiana. He stayed there long enough to get his degree from the Indiana University and then migrated to the Nation’s Capital. At present he is em- ployed at the Federal Bureau of Investiga- tion, but we overheard Judge Peyser say that when he has become a member of the Bar they are going to move over and make room for him in his office. This sounds to us as though Henry’s future in the law is assured. His hobby is tennis. Candidate for LL.B. Helen Goodner CHERRYDALE, VIRGINIA Helen possesses those sterling qualities that make her a most valued friend. She received her A.B. degree from Mt. Holyoke College and came to National where she took all the prizes for scholarship. In her Junior year she had the highest average in Equity and Real Property. She is corresponding- registrar of Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority and is a member of the Cy Pres Club.

He is a mem- ber of Alpha Sigma Lambda Fraternity. As a paying teller at the American Security and Trust Company this potential lawyer will make an excellent drummer for Paul Whiteman. His plans for the future are very “yes and no,” yes, he might practice law, and not, he might not. So far he has not had any experience with bars of any kind (so he says), but he is young yet. Can- didate for LL.B. De Minimis Non Curat Lex. (The law does not concern itself about trifles.) SI = THE DOCKET John W. Greene WASHINGTON, D. C.

We expect great things from this member of our class. His plans for the future, however, are uncertain, and some day we may be saying to him, “If your Honor please.” Omnis Innovatio Plus Novitate Perturbat Quant Utilitate Prodest. (Every innovation occasions more harm and derangement of order by its novelty than benefit by its abstract utility.) 82 THE DOCKET Henry Grossman BAYONNE, NEW JERSEY Henry is determined to do or die. He aspires to be the leading attorney of his time and we predict that he will be the attorney- general for the state of New York.

He was president of his Freshman class and treasurer of his Senior class at Columbia. He is a member of Phi Alpha Sigma Fraternity and is an Elk.

He later attained his pre-legal training at George Washington University where he was a member of Delta Tau Delta Fraternity. Law fascinated him so he enrolled at National for his LL.B. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. While his hobby is “Poor” golf, he makes his living as Busi- ness Manager of Division 9, Board of Public Assistance. His name will be heard in the roll call of lawyers in the District. Ubi Eadem Ratio Ibi Idem Jus. (Like reason doth make like law.) 83 THE DOCKET Phillip M. Hamilton SILVER SPRINGS, MARYLAND There being no institutions of higher learning in Silver Springs and Phil being very much in search of intellectual stimula- tion, he decided to matriculate here at Na- tional where he is a candidate for his LL.B. degree. S. J. Hanford WASHINGTON, D. C. This young man has a diversity of talents. He brag s about passing bills and notes, but says nothing about his ability as a rifleman of the National Rifle Association or as a demonstrator for Wrigleys. While he has spent some time as a clerk in the law office of Bailey Larsen, at the present time he is concentrating all of his efforts in passing the D. C. Bar. S. J. is a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity. Candidate for LL.B. Cessante Ratione Legis Cessat Ipsa Lex. (Reason is the soul of the law, and when the reason of any particular law ceases, so does the law itself.) 84 THE DOCKET = Harry Fleet Harper, Jr. WASHINGTON, D. C. Fleet is a former banker, who, after passing a successful course in the American Institute of Banking, left that temple of money changers and entered the Department of Justice. He plays golf, but as to how well deponent saith not. He is a very modest young man and it took all the members of the biographical committee to elicit this much information about him, but we are informed and believe, and therefore aver, that his start in the legal field now as special clerk in the Bureau of Investigation of the Department of Justice is only a stepping- stone to a very promising career in the law. Candidate for LL.B. John James Hassler OKLAHOMA CITY, OKLAHOMA John comes to us from Oklahoma City, Oklahoma and is a candidate for his LL.B. degree. He received his B.S. at Oklahoma A. and M.

The pleasant countenance above belongs to Indiana’s contributions to the National University and the class of 1 935- He is a former secretary of the Young Re- publican Club. Bob is now employed by the National Canners Association, and a big question mark appears after plans for the future in law, but we think we are destined to hear great tidings from him in the not far distant future. Dos T. Hatfield BOWLING GREEN, OHIO Dos hails from the state which has fur- ninshed the United States with several of its presidents, which puts this young man on the spot. He not only has to live up to the reputation of his state, but also that of his illustrious father, Judge Charles S. Hat- field, Judge of the Court of Custom Ap- peals. A very likeable chap is this son of Ohio as is demonstrated by the attraction he has for certain members of the fair sex. He obtained a degree from the American University before entering National and while at National was Vice-President of the Pan-Hellenic Council and Registrar of the Choate Chapter, Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. He plays a good game of golf and has been one of the most ardent supporters of school activities. We like this young man and we wish him well. Candidate for LL.B.

He showed rare discernment by marrying our own Eunice Johnson of the Class of ’34. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity. He says that he does not intend to practice law, he merely wants to know what it is all about. Candidate for LL.B. Leon C. Hoffman SHAMOKIN, PENNSYLVANIA Leon got his early training in Shamokin, Pa., where he attended the Shamokin High School. He is a man of ability and char- acter and we know that he will do well any- thing he might undertake. At present he is the District Manager of Beck-Hazard, Inc., and is a member of the B. P. O. E.

She is historian of the graduating class. Florence says she does not intend to engage in the general practice of law. She is an examiner in the United States Patent Office.

Malcolm is at present em- ployed as a clerk in the Treasury Depart- ment where he intends to stay, unless he gets a satisfactory offer to practice law. This young man is an habitual juror and apparently likes to serve. Odin Klovstad FARGO, NORTH DAKOTA This very popular member of our class attended Interstate Business College at Fargo, N. D., before coming to National U. In his Freshman year he was Chancellor of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity and served on several committees of the class during his Freshman and Junior years. He is the treasurer of the graduating class and has made an excellent officer. We congratu- late ourselves on our selection of treasurer but we congratulate him for receiving ' a big 99 in common law pleading. He is not a bookkeeper in the Treasury Department and says he has no definite plans for the future because he is a fatalist and believes that fate will decide his future. If his splen- did spirit of cooperation at National is a criterion, Odin has a wonderful future. Nimia Subtilitas In Jure Reprobatur, Et Talis Certitudo Certitudinem Confundit. (The law does not allow of a captious and strained intendment, for such nice pretence of certainty confounds true and legal certainty.) 91 THE DOCKET William H.

The fortunate town that has the distinction of calling him its own is Terre Haute, where he received the early part of his education.

He is a clerk in the Office of the Comptroller of the Cur- rency and is particularly interested in bank- ing matters.

At present, he is spending his leisure hours with the H. O. L. C. We wish him lots of success in the practice of the law. Emma Minton LITCHFIELD, KENTUCKY The teaching profession lost one of its most able members when this candidate de- serted that profession for law. After receiv- ing her degree from the State Teachers College at Bowling Green, Kentucky, having- taught in Kentucky for some time, Sister Emma packed her baggage and came to the Nation’s Capital to work for “Uncle Sam,” in the Treasury Department where she has been ever since. She does not intend to prac- tice law and we think that the legal profes- sion will lose a very able lawyer by this decision. Acta Exteriora Indicant Interiora Secrcta.

Golf is his hobby. He is now engaged in the real estate busi- ness, being connected with the H. G. Smithy Company, and apparently has no immediate definite plans for the practice of law.

His fraternity brothers tell us he is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity and has been active in the Joseph H. Choate Chapter.

In writing this biograpy we find ourselves at loss to give a word portrait of so fine a person in so short a space. However, we must mention that Kathryn holds about the highest secretarial position in the “New Deal” organizations, being Secretary to the Executive Secretary of the N. I. R. A. Board. Also, that she served on the Execu- tive Committee of the Freshman class, the Prom Committee of the Junior class, and is Associate Editor of The Docket. Kathryn’s plans for the future are not well known but whatever they are, or what- ever they may become we wish her all the luck, success and happiness in the world.

She was Presi- dent of her Junior class, the first woman to hold such a position, and is now President of the Cy Pres Club and Associate Dean of the Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority. Vera is now a Junior Officer of one of our local banks but her classmates feel that sooner or later she will desert the banking field and embark upon the profession of law where her splendid equipment and fine legal talent will mark her for a successful career.

She also claims no achieve- ments out of law school but the desire to press forward and her ambition is to at least once be the first to finish examinations. She is a member of the Cy Pres Club and like all good law students is never seen without a law book under her arm and is always in a hurry.

Candidate for LL.B. Morris Schwartz WASHINGTON, D. C. Morris is another son of the District of Columbia who forsook trade and commerce for the study of law. His hobby is bowling.

Before coming to Washington as Attorney with the Federal Communications Commis- sion she was engaged in general practice and with the Corporation Commission of Okla- homa City. Hershel A.

News- paper work losing its attraction for him he answered the call of Washington and re- ceived an assignment in the General Ac- counting Office. He is a member of Alpha Delta Omega Fraternity and a First Lieu- tenant in the Officers Reserve Corps. He is too modest to tell us of his activities in law school, but he has held committee assign- ments in his Freshman and Junior years and is the Advertising Manager of the Docket for 1935.

Wilma is a member of the Junior Hadassah, Council of Jewish Federa- tion of Temple Brotherhood. Before enter- ing National she attended Polytechnic Insti- tute, Polytechnic.

He is our idea of a good fellow and we all wish him success when he becomes a real practicing attorney. Joseph M.

TRAVAIL O UT of the pain and suffering of an economic cataclysm our association was brought forth to see the light of intellectual day and wear the swaddling clothes of sophistry. In was 1932, the Bicentennial of Washington’s birth; the end of a presidential administration ; unrest and chaos were the order of the day. A small group of courageous individuals were undaunted. With single- ness of purpose and indifference to the thunderous rumblings about them they met together with a high aim. Their mentors admonished them that a destiny far greater than they realized was before them, that a great responsibility was upon their weak backs, that in union there was strength. Abrogating all manner of distraction they applied themselves to the task at hand and banded themselves together as an association. Thus was the child born, puny and insolvent, like the world from which it came forth. II. TRANSITION Times change, so do men. The Century of Progress was in full sway. Banks were reorganizing. The New Deal was in. Washington was the center of the universe. Our lusty youngster changed also. The class became the first to elect a woman as its president. It adopted a constitution and by-laws. It became solvent. The metamorphosis from the infant to the adolescent was rapid and not without casualties. The need for renewed courage was greater. The mentors spared no effort to make us work. They were cruel task masters. The association met the test and grew in strength and stature. The spirit of the New Deal was upon us; it permeated our existence at all times. Now, more than ever before we could envision what was in store for us in the future which was rapidly becoming less distant. We were approaching intellectual adulthood. There could be no turning back now, the goal was too near. III. TRIUMPH At last we come of age. Our mentors look upon us as equals and their stern demeanor softens. We are travelling the last course. How long it seems. 134 THE DOCKET How weary we are. But there can be no stopping now. Steadily the world is settling down, while we, who have been settled down for long, are beating our frail fledgling wings against the cage. The Supreme Court of the United States interprets the New Deal and sets down its momentous decisions in the four “Gold Clause cases. " We come now to claim our reward, but that reward is only a symbol. The cap, robe and hood are but representations of the cloth of wisdom cloaking- naked ignorance. The sheepskin scroll is our only weapon against the world. How effective it will he depends upon him who wields it and how well. We triumph now only to face other and greater obstacles. “Brethren, I count not myself to have apprehended: but this one thing I do, forgetting those things which are behind, and reaching forth unto those things which are before, I press on to the goal — 135 THE DOCKET THE DOCKET Judges of the Moot Courts MOOT COURT OF APPEALS HAYDEN JOHNSON Associate Justice W.

PEYSER Judge GEORGE E. EDELIN Associate Judge Primer of Common-Law Pleading What is common-law pleading? It is that form of pleading of the “common” or “garden” variety ; some of it is uncommonly bad. What is a declaration ? A declaration is a defiance. Thomas Jefferson wrote the original declaration, which defied the British bull to do his worst. When a young man is asked regarding his intentions toward a lady friend his reply is called a declaration ; sometimes it is followed by vociferation and vituperation. What is a demurrer? It is a term sometimes applied to the cars of the electric street railways of Washington. In other words, when traveling thereon you “stand, " you “stall,” you “stop, " you “halt,” you “delay,” you “demur,” (and sometimes you swear). What is a plea in suspension? When a man asks his wife to sew on a suspender button. What is a plea in abatement? When you request the garbage man to abate a nuisance by removing the matutinal garbage. What is a plea in bar? When you strike your friend to buy one for you. What is a similiter? This term refers to that beatific moment when your friend says, “T 11 take a highball,” and you say, “I’ll take the same.” What is the action of assumpsit? When you undertake to throw out your mother-in-law. What is a replication? The act of an aggrieved wife who salutes her husband with a washboard. How is the surrejoinder best illustrated? When the man of the house gargles Pilsner with the cook. Is common-law pleading a nuisance? Is is. Who was the most infamous pleader? Ed. Saunders. Who comes next in rank— in other words, who is ranker than Saunders? We decline to answer, for fear of incriminating ourselves. 138 The Law Branch of the Moot Court in Session r “pHIS is a scene of the Law Branch of the Moot Court in session; Judge Nathan Cayton, presiding. It is during these sessions that the senior students of National get their excellent practical training which makes them well equipped to practice before the local courts. This year saw Nathan Cayton, Judge of the Municipal Court of the District of Columbia and a National alumnus, presiding. That he did a splendid job in training us in actual court procedure was admitted by all. We wish to take this opportunity to thank him and we hope to meet him again sometime in that little red brick building down on C Street. 139 THE DOCKET ER— THE RULE SEEMS ] TO BE — BUT THE SUPREME COURT SAY5 ALTHO ' TWE WEIGHT OF AUTHORITY K — - BUT THE TUPREME COURT HAS REC- ENTLY INDICATED TO THE contrary J ANOTHER PRESENTS?! COMEDY THE DOCKET Class of 1935 W E present ourselves: the Class of 1935. After three years of labor, we alone remain, the “Survival of the Fittest ’ In September 1932, when the curve of the depression was at its crest, some two hundred and fifty students entered our law school. Ihe only dark cloud on the horizon was the fact that 1935 was so f ar awa y- We were immediately introduced to the daily routine of quiz and lecture and instructed to add to our vocabulary such terms as res ipsa loquitor, caveat emptor, obiter dicta , and innuendo. We were also cautioned to beware of the traps laid by the fourth and seventeenth sections of the Statute of Frauds. Throughout the first year the activities of the class were crowned with the usual success which has characterized our efforts throughout the entire three years. Our Freshman prom under the able management of Mr. Darraugh was both a financial and social success. Great qualities of leadership and eloquence broke into evidence in the Freshman debating team when Mr. Edelin from “Western Mary- land” expounded his forceful argument on the controversial subject of Divorce. The second year was not greatly different from the first in point of student activity. The curriculum of the National University is so arranged as to bring together in the second year the most interesting and difficult courses of the entire under- graduate schedule. For one studiously inclined, the Junior year is recommended as an intellectual banquet de luxe. In the fall of 1934 when we assembled for the last lap of our course, each one of us was keenly conscious of a gap in the ranks of our distinguished faculty. The termination of our Junior year was saddened by the passing of our beloved pro- fessor, Glen Willett. Commencement of 1934 saw him complete more than twenty years’ work at the National University where his able instruction and sympathetic understanding had guided many a student over the period of training which was later to determine success in his chosen profession. Professor Willett left behind him a record unsurpassed and rarely equalled as well as a beautiful memory in the minds of thousands of men and women who have gone out from the National University. It is with a great deal of pardonable pride that we point to the members of our Senior class who passed the bar examination in December of last year : Virginia A. Dulin, Margaret Earley, Goldie Sefkin and Herbert V. Mueller. And now the Senior year draws to a close and turns another page on a delightful, pleasant and unforgettable commentary which is abundantly filled with experiences, ambitions and accomplishments. We must pass on for we have greater achievements to attain, hi gher ambitions to strive for and more difficult obstacles to overcome in the great field of Law. We have received from our instructors that initial incentive which will spell success and advancement. Though the path be difficult, our courage is fortified by the inspirations which we have received under their splendid influence, which, apart from their academic instruction, will remain with us long after the principles in the “Little Green Book” and the “Rule in Shelley’s Case” have faded into the back- ground. So the Class of 1935 has written another page in the history of the National University and in its turning, we wish to sav in the words of the Noble Roman " Vale r — Florence M. Horigan 141 THE DOCKET 20 Years of Service pROFESSOR ROGER O’DONNELL completes his twentieth year of teaching at National this year. Regarded by students as one of the most exacting professors in the school, nevertheless we feel sure that he has been often secretly blessed by those who have struggled through the bar examina- tion on common law pleading. The following is a reproduction of the photograph of Professor O’Don- nell, accompanied by his biography, reprinted from the 1915 Stare Decisis , the predecessor of The Docket. ROGER O’DONNELL Dunkirk, D-U-N-K-I-R-K ? Sounds like the last resting place of all the departed Presbyterian ministers, doesn’t it? But it isn’t, gentle reader, so guess again. It is a pastoral little hamlet away up in the empire state of New York and was put on the map on April 10, 1875, when it gave to the world the article whose classic features are here portrayed. For on the date last mentioned at the aforesaid village of Dunkirk, Roger O’Donnell first took a peep at the world. Liking the looks of things pretty well, he decided to stay awhile, but Dunkirk with all its charms could not detain him, and after seeing all there was to be seen and learning all the rudimen- tary lore that its knowledge dopesters were able to hand out, little Roger shook the dust of the aforesaid village from his mantle, boarded a train, and was put “off at Buffalo.” In school he has grabbed about all the prizes that were to be grabbed and has absorbed about as much law as the Dean and his pals are able to hand out. He has at the same time managed to win and retain the affection and regard of about all of his fellow students and from no one in the class will more be expected than of Roger O’Donnell. 142 O ' DonnelFs New Book (That “Houn Dawg” Tune) THE DOCKET Tho’ the stuff that’s in it is good and sound The boys keep a-knockin’ my book around Makes no difference if it is buckram bound, They got a-cjuit knockin’ my book around.

O NE of the most important emergency measures passed in 1933 was the National Indus- trial Recovery Act, a measure designed to remove many of the ruthless elements from competition, to better the relations between employer and employee, and by a just regulation of the hours of labor to increase employment. In our judgment, the name of the Act was unfortunate. It was not so much an Act for Recovery from the Depression as one for the betterment of conditions under which business and industry is carried on. The NR A has accomplished a great deal in the reemployment of labor, in improving wages, hours and working conditions, in eliminating unfair competition, in balancing production against consumption, in establishing a better, fairer industrial system, capable of greater and more substantial service to the general welfare. The NRA has, to a large extent, abolished the sweat shops and child labor. The whole effort of this Act may be regarded as a bold attempt to spread consuming power. The policy of the Administration has been to bend every effort to raise wages first, and to prevent undue rises in prices. Among the accomplishments of the NRA, the Administration points with pride to a ninety per cent codification of Industry and to the fact that 2,750,000 more industrial workers were employed in October, 1933, than in June, 1933, and that wage payments had increased at the rate of three billion dollars annually. Although the NRA has accomplished much, it has had its marked failures, the most outstanding of which are : 144 I. Failure to protect the Consumer. Unless competition, taxation or government regulation limits profits, wage boosts can effect no real improvement in distributing purchasing power. 2 General Johnson traded the regularization of competition, which in many cases meant monopolistic price fixing, for higher minimum wages and reduction of working hours. He opposed price fixing as such but he allowed open price agreements, provisions against selling below cost or below “average cost which lead, in fact, to price fixing. 3. Failure to provide a method for securing prompt and effective compliance. 4. Inability to eliminate inconsistent and conflicting provisions among the various codes. 5. Failure to protect small enterprises and minorities from monopolistic practices of large industries. We believe that the National Industrial Recovery Act should be extended. An extension of the NIRA for a period of two years, would permit the solving of major legal questions and the raining of further practical experience before permanent legislation is attempted. This would aid greatly in the drafting and effective operation of legislation designed to be permanent. The time does not appear to be opportune for new legislation. There still remain too many uncertain factors, fundamental in importance, which can be clarified only through the decisions of the U. S. Supreme Court or by further experience. An Act which ignores these factors or which attempts to deal with them before they are clarified may later prove to be fatally defective. Congress should set up a more precise standard to be applied, keeping in mind the question, can the government restrain the production of articles harmless in themselves and production of which is not classed, and cannot be classed as a public service enterprise? Serious constitutional questions also are present in attempts to fix a price, either maximum, minimum, or absolute, for goods or services the furnishing of which is not, and cannot be made, a public utility undertaking. Fifty years ago, when the burdens of attempting enforcement would have been much lighter, the U. S. Supreme Court considered federal action in this field to be wholly im- practicable. The Court said : “If it be held that the term (commerce) includes the regulation of all such manufactures as are intended to be the subject of commercial transactions in the future, it is impossible to deny that it also would include all productive industries that contemplate the same thing. The result would be that Congress would be invested, to the exclusion of the states, with the power to regulate, not only manufacture, but also agriculture, horticulture, stock-raising, domestic fisheries, mining — in short, every branch of human industry. . . . The power being vested in Congress and denied to the states, it would follow as an inevitable result that the duty would devolve on Congress to regulate all of those delicate, multiform, and vital inter- ests — interests which in their nature are, and must be, local in all the details of their successful management. It is not necessary to enlarge on, but only to suggest, the impracticability of such a scheme, when we regard the multitudinous affairs involved, and the almost infinite variety of their minute details.” Practical as well as constitutional considerations, therefore, suggest that permanent legislation should be restricted to business and activities clearly in the current of interstate commerce or so related thereto that they have a direct and substantial effect upon such commerce. The labor clause relating to membership in organization now provides that no one seeking- employment shall be required, as a condition of employment, “to join any company union or to refrain from joining” a “labor organization of his own choosing.” In any such provision the federal government is departing from its proper sphere as widely as in the other labor clauses and in addition is proceeding contrary to decisions of the U. S. Supreme Court, which held unconstitutional provisions of a like kind placed by Congress in a statute respecting persons employed by interstate railroads. 145 THE DOCKET T HIS is the opinion of L. Hand, Circuit Judge, on the famous “Poultry Case” which is now pending in the Supreme Court of the United States. 1 he decision of the Supreme Court on this case will, in a large measure, decide the fate of the N. R. A. United States Circuit Court of Appeals For the Second Circuit UNITED STATES OF AMERICA, Appellee, vs. A. L. A. SCHECHTER POULTRY CORP., SCHECHTER LIVE POULTRY MARKET, JOSEPH SCHECHTER, MARTIN SCHECHTER, ALEX SCHECHTER AND AARON SCHECHTER, Appellants. L. Hand, Circuit Judge (concurring) : I am one of the majority who think that counts 46 and 55 should be reversed, and the question at stake has enough importance to justify a statement of my reasons. It is always a serious thing to declare any act of Congress unconstitutional, and especially in a case where it is a part of a comprehensive plan for the rehabilitation of the nation as a whole, with the wisdom of that plan we have nothing whatever to do ; and were only the Fifth Amendment involved I should be prepared to read the powers of Congress in the broadest possible way. Moreover, the phrase, “fair competition,” seems to me a definite enough cue or ground plan for the elaboration of a code. Federal Trade Commission v. Keppel , 291 U. S. 304; Frischerw. El ting, 60 Fed. (2) 71 1 (C. C. A. 2) ; Sears Roebuck v. Fed. Tr. Com., 258 Fed. Rep. 307 (C. C. A. 7). Assuming that the preamble of the whole statute will not serve alone ( Panama Refining Co. v. Ryan, 293 U. S. 388), practices generally deemed unfair in any trade may I think be made the basis of a delegated power, which is obliged to conform to the varying needs of many industries. But the extent of the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce is quite another matter and goes to the very root of any federal system at all. It might, or might not, be a good thing if Congress were supreme in all respects, and the states merely political divisions without more autonomy than it chose to accord) them; but thapis not the skeleton or basic frame-work of our system. To protect that frame-work there must be some 146 THE DOCKET tribunal which can authoritatively apportion the powers of government, and traditionally this is the duty of courts. It may indeed follow that the nation cannot as a unit meet any of the great crises of its existence except war, and that it must obtain the concurrence of the separate states; but that to some extent at any rate is implicit in any federation, and the resulting weaknesses have not hitherto been thought to outweigh the dangers of a completely centralized government. If the American people have come to believe other- wise, Congress is not the accredited organ to express their will to change. In an industrial society bound together by means of transport and com- munication as rapid and certain as ours, it is idle to seek for any transaction, however apparently isolated, which may not have an effect elsewhere ; such a society is an elastic medium which transmits all tremors throughout its terri- tory; the only question is of their size. In the case at bar such activities as inspecting the fowls after they have arrived, licensing dealers, and requiring reports, are directed at least in part to the control of their importation, and it is not necessary that they should impinge directly upon the importation itself. So much was certainly decided as to this very industry in Local i 6 j Inter- national Brotherhood v. U. S., 291 U. S. 293. The “straight killing” rule is of the same kind; it compels a grading of the fowls at shipment and so determines how they shall be cooped and carried. But the regulation of the hours and wages of all local employees who turn the fowls into merchantable poultry after they have become a part of the domestic stock of goods, seems to me so different in degree as to be beyond the line. No one can indeed deny the prosecution’s argument that hours and wages will in fact influence the import of the fowls into the state ; and there are instances in which purely intrastate activities are so enmeshed with interstate that they must be included in inter- state regulation, else none at all is possible. That is the case with railway rates. Houston E. W. T. R. R. Co. v. U. S., 234 U. S. 342 ; R. R. Commission of Wisconsin v. Chic. B. Q. R. R. Co., 257 U. S. 563. Lehmke Farmers Grain Co., 25 8 U. S. 50, was of the same kind. There is no such intimate connection here. Again, the hours and wages of railway workmen may be regulated. Wilson v. New, 243 U. S. 332 ; Baltimore O. R. R. Co. v. Inter- state Commerce Commission, 221 U. S. 612. So too the other conditions of their employment. Texas N. O. R. R. v. Brotherhood of Railway Clerks, 281 U. S. 548. But this is limited to those actually conducting transportation, where the connection is as close as possible. The employees of these defendants were not engaged in transportation. Finally, there are decisions like Stafford v. Wallace , 258 U. S. 495, and Chicago Board of Trade v. Olsen, 262 U. S. 1, of which all that can be said is that the connection between the intrastate transactions regulated and interstate commerce was found to be close enough to serve. It would be, I think, disingenuous to pretend that the ratio decidendi of such decisions is susceptible of statement in general principles. That no doubt might give a show of necessity to the conclusion, but it would be in- sincere and illusory, and appears formidable only in case the conclusion is surreptitiously introduced during the reasoning. The truth really is that where 147 mw TH E DOCKET the border shall be fixed is a question of degree, dependent upon the con- sequences in each case. The only ground here for bringing hours and wages within the scope of Congress’s power is because the raw material on which the men work is substantially all imported into the state; they make dressed poultry out of live fowls. If Congress can control the price of their labor, I cannot see why it may not control the rent of the buildings where the fowls are stored, the cost of the feed they eat while here, and of the knives and apparatus by which they are killed and dressed. All these are necessary factors in the product and all have as much and as little effect upon the importation of the fowls to be killed and dressed as the labor, which is indeed little more than half the cost. There comes a time when imported material, like any other goods, loses its interstate character and melts into the domestic stocks of the state which are beyond the powers of Congress. So too there must come a place where the services of those who within the state work it up into a finished product are to be regarded as domestic activities. Industrial Ass. of San Francisco v. U. S., 268 U. S. 64. Generally the two will coalesce. Work upon material become domestic, can scarcely be other than domestic work ; in this it differs from inspection and its ancillary accompaniments. For although inspection is im- mediately concerned with goods that have arrived, they are ordinarily still in transit ; and moreover even were they not, the purpose is directly to control the importation of future goods, like the purpose of the conspiracy in Bedford Cut Stone Co. v. Journeymen ' s Stone Cutters Association , 274 U. S. 37. But labor done to work up materials begins only after the transit is completed in law as well as in fact, and it is not directed towards the importation of future materials; it is a part of the general domestic activities of the state and is as immune as they from congressional regulation. Judge Chase concurs in this opinion. In the u I-Iot Oil ” Cases, the Court speaking through the Chief Justice, in an 8 to 1 decision, held Section 9 (c) of the National Industrial Recovery Act to be unconstitutional. That Section gave to the President the power to prohibit interstate shipments of oil in excess of quotas authorized by the States. The Court held that the Section itself established no criterion to govern the President’s course, nor did it require any finding by the President as a con- dition of his action. After a minute examination of the entire Act the tribunal concluded that there was no provision which could be deemed to prescribe any limitation on the grant of authority in Section 9 (c). Such a delegation of power is unconstitutional. “The Congress is manifestly not permitted to abdicate, or to transfer to others the essential legislative functions with which it is thus vested.” The tribunal distinguished numerous other cases in which grants of legislative power had been assailed, and pointed out that in all instances where the grant had been upheld there had been some limitation, some standard or criterion with which the grantee of such power must con- us THE DOCKET form, and some set of facts which must be found to exist before such rule- making power could be exercised. “If Section 9 (c) were held valid, it would be idle to pretend that anything would be left of limitations upon the power of Congress to delegate its law-making functions . . . The question is not of the intrinsic importance of the particular statute before us, but of the constitu- tional processes of legislation which are an essential part of our system of Government.” The Court did not pass on the constitutionality of the provisions of the Petroleum Code or upon the right of Congress to prohibit the intersta te or foreign transportation of oil in excess of approved quotas, both questions being- unnecessary to the decision of the principle question.

" UNDERQRADUATES 151 THE DOCKET Class of 1936 W ARMED by the sun of diligent study and nourished by the refreshing rain of sympathetic tuition, the Class of ’36 entered its second stage of legal evolution, pushing forth its buds on the branches of jurisprudence. The familiar frost of reduced attendance that too often impairs the harvest of graduates failed to chill or blight these embryonic fruits of legal knowledge. The first gesture toward organization of the Junior class was its election of officers. Usual in procedure but unusually satisfying in results, this social, rather than political function installed William Jobe as president; Elisabeth Buchanan, vice- president ; Norman Morgan, treasurer, through re-election ; Glenna Crowder, secre- tary, through re-election ; Orrin Cox, historian ; and Carl Koch, sergeant-at-arms. Somewhat later, and on a special occasion, an election was held to fill the office of assistant editor of The Docket. Intense interest was aroused in this instance and the balloting evidenced an almost equal appreciation of the two major contestants, Stanley Gaines and Luther Angle. The former was victorious by a slight margin and the latter, forgetting the rivalry of the contest in the larger need of official capacity, energetically assumed the duties of assistant. The Junior class was responsible for the innovation, and probably the prec- edent, of an executive council. This advisory committee, appointed by the president immediately following his inauguration, was composed of Chairman Arthur Cle- phane and members Elizabeth Lipscomb, Charles Brooks, Kenneth Hamilton, and Charles Silverman. A second commission was appointed under the title, Constitution and By-laws Committee. Its object was the drafting of a set of rules for the Class of ' 36. Ed Enzor, its chairman was capably assisted by Wanda Hobbs, Albert Wheatley, Malcolm Sharpe, and Joseph Corrigan. The pause that remembers and applauds must include those genii of income, the Finance Committee, the efforts of which created the ordinarily surprising phenomenon of a substantial surplus. We offer congratulations and many thanks to Norman Morgan, its chairman, and Elizabeth Stratton, Cathrine Edmundson, Lynwood Lagerson, Mike Colasanto and Vincent Bradley, his capable co-workers. In the field of entertainment mere mention of the Junior Prom excites pleasant memories. In an atmosphere of conviviality, to the music of the Pickens Band, approximately seventy-five couples attested their enjoyment. The scene of this social and financial success was the Indian Springs Country Club ; its date the twenty-first of February. To find the cause for such consummate diversion no further search is needed than recognition of the astute and conscientious efforts of Jack Biscoe, chairman of the Entertainment Committee. Under his guidance and impelled by his peculiar gift of v leadership, the members of his committee, Kathryn Masco, Ralph Elliott, Frank Meyer, Robert McDaniel, and Lewis Jacobs, worked with a will, the fruit of which was an evening of pleasant relaxation. The success of ’36 in its various recreational pursuits should probably be attributed, in part, to its cosmopolitan atmosphere. Representatives from thirty- eight states of the Union and four insular possessions comprised the roster. The curricular attitude of the class was of studious endeavor ; its social temperament was moderate, stable and dignified. Obviously, a feeling of regret attended the year’s end, as the Junior class departed from their congenial unity. But an over- tone of optimism prevailed with the prophecy of maturity, when these buds would become the blossoms and eventually the rich harvest on the tree of forensics. — Orrin Cox 152 THE DOCKET WILLIAM T.

Zielinski District of Columbia THE DOCKET Class of 1937 T HE Class of 1937 began its slow ascent to the heights of legal knowledge as late September 1934 gave way to the colorful October of that sig- nificant fall. Fledgling barristers from various institutions of learning swarmed about the portals of the historic law school of National University — a heterogeneous trass motivated by ore impulse — the search of legal knowledge. The rapid acquisition of the legal temperament was deterred by the turbulent struggle for class organization. Chaos was rife in every meeting until the wishes of the class were voiced in the desire for petition form of government. The result was the tendering of the leadership of the class to Joseph Richie, of Pennsylvania. Earl Edwards, a Washingtonian, was selected as vice-president ; Edna Mae Nance of the Lone Star State was chosen as secretary; Leon Cubberly of New Jersey, as treasurer; John Joseph Leahy of New York was named sergeant-at-arms, and Carol Cox of Georgia was elected historian. The confusion of opening days was quickly superseded by the organized procedure of lectures and debates. Instructors, learned in law, soon made the foundering Freshmen aware of the profound qualities of the subject which ihey had undertaken to master. Misgivings crept into the heart of each of us as we were engulfed in the terminology of a strange science. We realized that the quest had now begun in earnest. Cy Pres, the woman’s organization of the school, welcomed the Freshman girls into its circle. Fraternity and sorority rush season, with its attendant victories and renewed fellowship, followed close in the wake of class organiza- tion. Old 1937 was becoming an entity and liking it! A few probationary weeks and examinations were imminent. During the hectic pre-exam period many friendships were formed and flowered over round table discussions and in study classes as we frantically sought enlight- enment. The first obstacle hurdled, a wave of confidence surged over the neophytes and conviviality reigned surpreme at the first Freshman class function which marked the close of the examination period and the beginning of the Christmas holidays. The weeks developed rapidly into months and we have forged ahead, grappling with new subjects, our horizons ever widening. The end of the year has come — we have learned so much, yet so little — we stand, yea we stand with an overwhelming sense of humility at the arch of the towering temple of the Law, and we gaze wistfully and eagerly into the vista which opens before our eyes end into the future. — Carol Cox 162 THE DOCKET THE DOCKET Earl Edwards Vice-President Edna Mae Mance Secretary Leon Cubberly Treasurer John Joseph Leahy 6 ergean t-at-A rms Carol Cox Historian 164 THE DOCKET Standing Committees EXECUTIVE Ralph A.

During the great war, thirty million acres of prairie land were ploughed up and added to our tillable area, in order that we might feed our own people and our allies. When the war ended, this left us with an agricultural area, which could produce far more than we could consume at home. Foreign markets were accordingly essent : al and for a time, they were obtained through loans which our bankers extended to foreign nations, in order that they might pay for importation from America. But this policy could not continue indefinitely. In the long run, imports and exports of goods and services must balance, and under our tariff policy this balancing by heavily increased imports was impossible. Therefore, exports of agricultural products gradually dropped ; surpluses of basic commodities grew unwieldy, and prices of staple crops fell to disastrous levels. In ’32 wheat sold at 25c a bushel, corn at 10c a bushel, and cotton at 5c a pound at many a farm. 172 THE DOCKET The Agricultural Adjustment Act was designed to bring the prices of farm products again to a remunerative level, and in order to accomplish this, it was deemed necessary that production be curtailed. The areas devoted to wheat, to corn and to cotton, were reduced under agreement with the producers. Under this Act, Congress authorized the Secretary of Agriculture to undertake fundamental plans for improving the position of basic commodities and to assist producers of other farm products in order that the farmer might benefit by modern marketing methods. Secretary Wallace has set about making production meet market demands bv offering the farmer Cooperative Benefit Payments, and by Marketing Agreements and licenses for those handling agricultural commodities. A great deal of our present difficulty came about because when the farmer stopped buying, the city worker was laid off. The city worker could no longer buy food and goods made from farm grown fibre and the farm surplusage mounted. As incongruous as it seems, it was found that there was a direct ratio between the length of the bread line in the cities and the height of the mountains of surplus farm products. Unless the farmer could sell, he could not buy; unless he could buy tools and clothes and other manufactured goods, the city worker was out of a job and unable to buy what the farmer had to sell. It was a vicious, deadly circle. Over six million dollars a year is being spent by the AAA to carry out its various projects. This is taken care of by the establishment of processing taxes, the proceeds of which are available for these jobs and for other expenses. The processing tax is collected from the first processor. He is the one who first turns raw material into usable forms and may be the miller, meat packer or textile manufacturer. The Administrator points to a thirty per cent rise in prices. He also maintains that this is not the only standard. He points out that farm income increased thirty-eight per cent in seven months and that the ability of the farmer to pay has also increased. THE DOCKET Cases Arising Under the AAA. Under the Act of May 12, 1933, known as the Agricultural Adjustment Act, the Secretary of Agriculture approved a marketing agreement and license for the cling peach industry of California. The purpose of the agreement was to regulate the production of this commodity and to secure for the farmer a fair price for his product. The defendant packing company refused to comply with the terms of the agreement, contending that the Agricultural Adjustment Act is not a valid exercise of the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce, and that the attempted restriction of the canning industry’s produc- tion is a violation of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment. The Secretary of Agriculture brought suit to enjoin the defendant company from further operations. HELD, the Agricultural Adjustment Act is constitutional, and the Secretary of Agriculture is entitled to an injunction to restrain violations of the act. ( United States and Henry A. Wallace , Secretary of Agriculture v. Calistan Packers , Inc., — F. Supp. (N. D. Cal. 1933). This decision, handed down October 2, 1933, represents the first major victory of the Federal Government in court action brought by it to enforce any of the recent Acts of Congress constituting the so-called recovery program. The Agricultural Adjustment Act (Public Law No. 10, 73rd Congress, 8) lays down fairly definite standards for the Secretary of Agriculture to follow, although under 8 (3) he is empowered to prescribe terms and con- ditions to eliminate unfair commercial practices and charges, and to prescribe penalties for violations thereof. In this, Congress was merely confer ring- administrative functions upon an agent, and was not delegating legislative powers. Such a power of delegation is highly essential to the adequate enforce- ment of legislation of this character. ( United States v. Grimaud , 220 U. S. 506 (1911) ; Hampton Jr. Co. v. United States, 276 L T . S. 391 (1928). This was a valid exercise of the power of Congress to regulate interstate commerce. This power is granted to Congress in broad terms, and consequent- ly it is to be construed, not restri ctively, but broadly, in order to give Congress the power to regulate any and all commerce which may seriously affect the interstate commerce. Where the control of interstate commerce necessitates the regulation of intrastate commerce, Congress has the power to so regulate. Stafford v. Wallace, 258 U. S. 495 (1922) ; Lemke v. Farmers Grain Co., 258 U. S. 50 (1922) ; Southern Railway Co. v. United States, 222 U. S. 20 (1911) ; Minnesota Rate Cases, 230 U. S. 352 (1913) ; Bech v. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, decided by the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, August 29, 1933, and reported in 41 Wash. Law Rep. 633 ; Economy Dairy Co. v. Wallace, Secretary of Agriculture, decided by the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, August 29, 1933, and reported in Wash. Law Rep. 622. 174 THE DOCKET The Agricultuial Adjustment Act does not, nor do the agreements validly entered into under it, constitute a violation of the due process clause of the Fifth Amendment. In the case of congressional legislation the presumption of validity is a strong one, and the courts will not pronounce it invalid unless it be clearly demonstrated so. Congress has found that an economic emergency exists, and the court, upon this finding, and upon its own judicial notice of the economic distress of the country, reached a similar conclusion. The peach canning industry, one affected, in the emergency situation, with a public interest, has been seriously handicapped by these conditions. Congress has the constitutional power to adopt appropriate legislation to cure this evil. Block v. Hirsh, 256 U. S. 135 (1921) ; Wilson v. New, 243 U. S. 332 (1917); Levy Leasing Co. v. Siegel, 258 U. S. 242 (1922) ; Atchison, T. S. F. Ry. Co. v. United States, 284 U. S. 248 (1932); Southport Petroleum Co. v. Harold L. Ickes, Secretary of the Interior, decided by the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, August, 1933, and reported in 41 Wash. Law Rep. 577. How far reaching may be the scope of this decision in its effect upon future controversies certain to arise under the Administration’s recovery pro- gram, is indicated in the following excerpt from the opinion of the District Court, as delivered by District Judge A. F. St. Sure : ‘‘Neither the Constitution nor the due process clause requires the perpetuation of conditions which impair the national vitality. To adopt the view that the Constitution is static and that it does not permit Congress from time to time to take such steps as may reasonably be deemed appropriate to the economic preservation of the country, is to insist that the Constitution was created containing the seeds of its ow.: destruction. This court will not subscribe to such a view.” BOOK FOUR Far better it is to dare mighty things — to win GLORIOUS TRIUMPHS EVEN THOUGH CHECKERED BY FAILURE THAN TO TAKE RANK WITLI THOSE POOR SPIRITS WHO NEITHER ENJOY MUCH NOR SUFFER MUCH BECAUSE THEY LIVE IN THE GRAY TWILIGHT THAT KNOWS NOT VICTORY NOR DEFEAT QRADUATES 177 THE DOCKET Edgar Poe Allen PENNSYLVANIA Organizations : Sigma Chi Fraternity, Phi Alpha Delta Legal Fraternity, Captain, Judge Advocate General’s Department, Officers Reserve Corps, Member of the Bar of the District of Columbia.

It might well he said to depict Wall Street when the United States went off the Gold Standard and certainly the chaos then is comparable to the New Deal monetary policies. We doubt very much if the “New Dealers” have a definite policy concern- ing money, although the President seems to have a very definite aim which involves the spending of billions of it. That aim may be expressed in two words, “personal security.” It comprehends security of investments, security for bank deposits, security in the price level, security for children, security against the sweat shop and ruthless exploitation of labor and security against the vicissitudes of life — unemployment, old age, sickness and accident. The price which must be paid to carry out this aim of the President’s is staggering. It must be paid for by someone and obviously the only persons in a 190 THE DOCKET position to pay are those who have money. In its final analysis this means a taking from those who have it and a giving to those who haven’t. Many people are justly alarmed at the ever-growing size of our national debt and our failure to balance the budget. At the beginning of the World War, we were substantially without a national debt. During the two years of the war, our expenditures rose to forty billions of dollars, of which thirteen billions were raised by taxes, and twenty-seven billions by the sale of bonds. In the next ten years of prevailing prosperity the national debt was lowered to between sixteen and seventeen billions of dollars. Then came the depression and, by March ’33, when the present administration took office, the national debt was just under twenty-one billions of dollars. From that point it has risen to approximately twenty-eight billion, five hundred million dollars, against which there are assets in the form of collateral loans amounting to over two and a half billion dollars, leaving the net increase of the national debt, since the President took office, about five billion dollars. This estimate does not include the recent appropriation by Congress of almost five billion dollars to the Public Works Administration. Such a gigantic national debt is extremely disturbing and every effort should be made to reduce it and to balance the budget at the earliest possible date. This would provide confidence, stimulate private initiative, increase opportunities for private employment and banish the fear of inflation. THE DOCKET A “Monetary 11 Letter Secretary, U. S. Treasury Department, Washington, D. C. Gents : The enclosed form, on which I am asked to make a record of my income for the last fiscal year, is returned to you with my deepest appreciation of this subtle form of flattery. I was particularly impressed by its resurrection of old forms and figures of English speech such as “compensation from outside sources,” “net profit received,” “income from rents,” “interest on bank deposits,” etc. One question I got a great laugh out of was, “Were you during the taxable year supporting in your household one or more persons closely related to you?” Boy, that’s a honey ! Say, Mister Secretary, you would be surprised ! There are so many persons closely related to me staying at my house, that I am what you would call sur- rounded. Only the other day three more distant cousins of my wife ' s blew in making a new high for the movement. And one of them brought a friend. For the last four y irs my house has been full of strangers all claiming to be my cousins or aunts or something. I can’t identify half of them, and what burned me up was when my wife’s Uncle Jerry, who has been living with us a year, slapped me on the back the other day and asked, “Haven’t I seen you some place before?” The blank says it will allow me $400 for each dependent relative, and I would say the Government is overpricing them, as I would trade the entire lot for $11 and throw in a pair of bicycle pants and a magic lantern. (Two of my wife’s aunts you can have for the asking.) Heigh-ho and lackaday. The blank also asks me to “Describe your business as provided in Item 2” and I am glad to answer, Lousy, Mister Secretary, Lousy. And it asks me to “enter on line 1 of Schedule A my total receipts for 1934.” I wish you would stop joking, Mister Secretary. Fun is fun, but enough is enough, and you can carry anything too far. Then you say something about allowance for “Obsolescence, depreciation and depletion.” That’s where I come in. As an American business man I am a study in obsolescence, I am depleted, deflated, depressed, denatured, denounced, deranged and dejected. And so is my old man, Yours in a barrel, Signed 192 THE DOCKET Cases Relating to the New Deal Monetary Policies On February 18th, 1935, the Supreme Court determined one of the most important and momentous questions which has ever been before that body. In a five to four decision, the justices held constitutional the abrogation of gold clauses in private contracts and the refusal of the government to pay gold coin in return for gold certificates. The two cases on private obligations involved railroad bonds which provided for payment “in gold coin of the United States of or equal to the present standard of weight and fineness.” Payment was demanded in gold or equivalent of gold according to that standard. It was held that this was a contract for the payment of money, not of gold coin as a commodity, nor of bullion. Congress was acting within its power in abrogating such contracts. In as much as Congress has the power to coin money and to regulate the value thereof, and to pass any laws necessary and proper to the exercise of this power, the Acts were valid, and, furthermore, such contracts must be taken to have been made with reference to the possible exercise by the government of such rightful authority. The constitutional authority cannot be fettered by private contracts. Such clauses cannot stand when they interfere with the policy of Congress in the exercis’ng of that authority. In the “ Gold Certificate Case” it was decided that gold certificates of the United States were likewise contracts for the payment of dollars, not for gold as a commodity. At the date of presentation the dollar had not been devaluated, although the price of gold had increased. The plaintiff was therefore paid on the basis which existed at the time the certificate was issued, and thus sustained no actual loss. Even had he been paid in gold, he would have been required to surrender that gold immediately and could not deal in it or export it. Consequently, his damages were at most purely nominal, and no action could be brought therefor in the Court of Claims, since that body was not instituted to try such a case. In the “Liberty Bond Case,” however, the Court was unanimous- ly of the opinion that Congress had exceeded its authority in abrogating its own contracts. There is a vital distinction between the power of Con- gress to control the contracts of private parties, and its power to alter or repudiate its own contracts. The Court stressed the phrase of the Con- stitution that Congress has the power to borrow money on the credit of the United States, and pointed out that if the standard of payment may be repudiated, then the amount to be paid may also be repudiated, which would ultimately destroy the credit of the government. However, the plaintiff failed to show that he had sustained any actual loss in relation to buying power. Payment in an equivalent of the present value of the gold dollar would constitute an unjustified en- richment. The damages being purely nominal, the Court of Claims has no jurisdiction. 193 BOOK FIDE The Base of All Metaphysics And now gentlemen, A word I give to remain in your memories and minds, As base and finale, too, for all metaphysics.

WALT WHITMAN SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND QOUERNMENT THE DOCKET Dean s Message T N this school year, it has been my privilege to associate in the class room with men and women of “eager and inquiring minds,” and it is such association that makes of class room work some- thing more than a duty — it makes of it a pleasure and a mission. The Class of 1935 yields to none of its predeces- sors in eagerness for knowledge and understanding. It has caught the spirit of the University — a spirit of free investigation and free inquiry. With more feeling than I can express, I wish the members of this class God-speed and many opportunities for service in the spirit of the National University.

Of all the organizations set up by the “New Dealers” this one bids fair to be of greatest permanence. The act of Congress, approved June 16, 1933, which created the PWA declared that the fabulous appropriation vouchsafed was to be devoted “to serve the interests of the general public.” The appropriation, in the first year, reached the enormous total of $3,700,000,000. The organic legislation provided that the authority to allocate funds should expire by limitation June 16, 1935. The fact that a good deal of work- had been undertaken on a long-range basis made is necessary for Congress to extend the act. This was recently done by an appropriation of almost $5,000,000,000. One of the most important results of all the PWA work has been its general effect on the country. The work began at a time when there was 204 THE DOCKET considerable discouragement over depressed economic conditions. Housing construction had lapsed, there was a dearth in the erection of school buildings and a general slowing up of improvements of public facilities. Hie outpour- ing of billions of Federal funds to stimulate fresh work not only provided direct employment, putting wages into the pockets of thousands of workmen, but it bettered the whole national tone. For example, many towns acquired waterworks and sewer systems which had never before enjoyed such con- veniences. Therefore, local comfort and health were raised to new standards. Impressive as are the actual single P YA projects themselves, including the giant Fort Peck Dam and Reservoir costing $80,000,000, the Grand Coulee and Bonneville Dams on the Columbia River costing $94,000,000, the com- pletion of the Boulder Dam in Colorado, which is pictured above, the Midtown Hudson Tunnel in Xew York and many others too numerous to mention here, it cannot be too strongly stressed that the bettering of social and economic conditions has been the broadest and most beneficial of the P YA results. The number of men to find work directly has been calculated at 1,500,000, while those employed in the furnishing of materials has raised the total to twice as many more. It would be impossible to trace all the work created by the P YA because the powers granted under the organic act were so broad that some way could be found to finance any worthy project the President and the P YA staff approved. Because of the PAY A the national wealth has increased immensely. Some of the elements of wealth are potential, some present, some latent. The mere fact of employment of millions of workers, giving them a livelihood for the period of the undertakings and stiffening their morale at a time of acute depression, was a contribution to intangible national wealth too imponderable to assay, yet nevertheless actual. To sum up then, the PWA has bestowed immense benefits upon the country. The main objection to it of course, is that it is daily costing tremen- dous sums of money. Ye hope that when the period of national emergencv shall have become an event of the past that a permanent Public Works Admin- istration will be set up as a Federal Government agency with expenditures more commensurate with the benefits to the people as a whole. 205 THE DOCKET Federal Judge Grubb, on February 22, 1935, in the case of Ashwander v. Tennessee Valley Authority , granted a permanent injunction restraining the TVA from carrying out the purchase of local electric distribution properties in Northern Alabama on grounds that proprietary operations of the Federal Government would be an unconstitutional act. The decision also restrained the Public Works Administration from aiding the TVA in carrying out its illegal program by lending Federal funds to municipalities in the valley area to finance the construction of their own distribution plants to use TVA electric power. The decision, casting as it does a grave shadow of doubt upon the constitutionality of the vital aspects of the TVA program, was reported (at the time of the writing of this article) as likely to be appealed by the Federal Government promptly to the United States Supreme Court for early adjudica- tion of the important issues involved. A passage of Judge Grubb’s opinion is reprinted below. “A plan for the development of the Tennessee River Valley, as a social experiment, is in no sense related to the improvement of navigation of the Tennessee River, or to the national defense, or to the regulation of Government-owned lands, and the production and sale of electrical power in aid of such development and experiment, would not be incidental or related to the exercise of any of the constitutional powers named. “The scope of the project of the Tennessee Valley Authority, as outlined by its directors, and as it is being administered by it, forbids the idea that its purpose in dealing with electric power is for the salvaging of a surplus to prevent its waste. On the contrary, its disclosed purpose is to furnish an example of Government operation of electric power production in the interest of public operation and ownership of such utilities, and also to furnish physical aid to a social experiment being conducted by the Authority in the Tennessee River Valley, for the improvement of the race. The official declarations of the directors can be read only with this result. They show that the project is not limited to the improvement of river navigation, to the national defense, or to the proprietary interest of the Government in its own land, but is infinitely wider in scope, being intended to create an ideal community, as a social experiment, and to give it aid by supplying cheap electric power, produced by it, for that purpose.” “Under our dual system of government, the United States, in the exercise of its constitu- tional powers, even within the confines of one of the States, has paramount power over the State. In matters of internal concern not affecting any constitutional power of the National Government, the State, under the reservation contained in the Tenth Amendment, has exclusive authority. If the Tennessee Valley Authority, within this State, is engaging in a proprietary adventure, unrelated to any power conferred upon it or on its principal by the Constitution, then it is doing an unauthorized thing. Engaging in the business of producing and selling electric power, as a utility, it would become subject to State regulation, and likely be in competition with private utilities, or with the State or its municipalities, while so engaged. It is contrary to the genius cf our dual government, that the National Government should do business, in a proprietary capacity, of an internal nature, and not related to a constitutional power, within the limits of a State, and occupy extensive areas of territory therein for that purpose. It would be fraught with possibilities of collision between such governments and 206 THE DOCKET individuals. The Tennessee Valley Authority, if the averments of the bill are sustained, is engaged in producing and selling electric oower in Alabama, in an enterprise having no substantial relation to the improvements of navigation or any constitutional power, on an elaborate scale, building dams designed for maximum electric power production to increase surplus power; fixing rates and terms in displacement of State functions, with the declared purpose of increasing the magnitude of the enterprise in the future. This is not a plan involving only the disposing of surplus electric power necessarily created in the improvement of navigation of the Tennessee River.” BOOK SIX “The love of a man for a woman, And a woman for a man, Waxes and wanes as doth the moon ; But the love of a brother for a brother, Is as constant as the stars, And endureth forever ’ OLD ARAB PROVERB FRATERNITIES 209 THE DOCKET Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) Joseph H. Choate (Alpha) Chapter Washington, D. C. CIGMA NU PHI Fraternity (Legal) is founded upon the honorable tra- ditions 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 beneficiently 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 perpetuate the spirit of such a brotherhood and ever increase its achievement in surpressing 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. 210 THE DOCKET OFFICERS Mori son Vice-Chancellor Jaquette Master of the Rolls Stevens Chancellor Hatfield Registrar of the Exchequer C.

CHOATE Chapter of Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) is glad to announce that it can look back on the past year with great satisfaction, and is equally proud to state that the prospects for the ensuing year appear to be very bright. It has not been an easy matter for fraternal organizations to keep on top during the past few years. Choate Chapter, however, is able to boast of this achievement, despite the fact that old man depression was wielding a war club which has played havoc with the entire country. The first event of social importance during this year was the Fall Dance which was held on October 20, 1934, at the Kennedy Warren Hotel. This was fol- lowed by the Annual Fall Smoker, held at the Hamilton Hotel on November 7, 1934. Brothers Godfrey Munter and Wilbur Gray gave very fine addresses at this affair. A number of new men were initiated into the fraternity in January and February, most of whom received their first taste of Sigma Nu Phi enthusiasm in a strictly social sense at a most successful dance held at the University Club on January 19, 1935. Our deep thanks of appreciation to Brother Munter who very kindly donated the use of the club to the Fraternity on that night. Officers for the year of 1935-36 were installed at the Hamilton Hotel on February 27th. Brother Merton A. English, Jr., was voted as Chancellor for the current year and succeeded Brother Edward A. Stevens. Other brothers elected as officers were: James S. Parker, James L. Proffitt, C. Richard Wilson. Hartford E. Bealer, and Linwood E. Lagerson. Each of the retiring officers was presented with a key in, appreciation of the commendable work carried on during his term of office. A very enjoyable smoker was held at the Hamilton on April 10th of this year, and the fraternity was privileged and honored in having as principal speaker on this occasion, its good friend Justice Charles S. Hatfield. Brother Munter also pre- sented a most interesting talk on the “Liability of an Endorser,” the text of which message will undoubtedly remain in vivid relief to those fortunate enough to hear it. The Chapter was further honored on this instance by the presence of two members of the Executive Council, Brothers Carlyle Baer and El wood Seal, the Grand Master of the Rolls and Grand Custodian of the Seals, respectively. Pertinent remarks were introduced by both of these members of the Fraternity and we trust that they may see their way clear to attend similar functions in the future. The final social event of the year, a dance, is- planned to follow the Alumni Banquet given by the University. This will be in conjunction with Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity and the National University Masonic Club, and will be held in the main ballroom of the Mayflower Hotel, May 4, 1935. Choate Chapter is also honored in having in its membership. Brother Charles W. Proctor, the editor of The Docket, and about the most outstanding man in the school. Congratulations to you Charlie, we are indeed proud to count you among our membership. All in all, Choate Chapter considers this year as highly successful. That it will be more so in the future is evidenced by the fact that two events of interest and importance to all are included in plans for the coming year. The first of these is the possibility of National Convention, probably held in Atlanta, Georgia, at a date as yet undetermined. The second, and one very dear to the hearts of those who are out of school at the present time, is the proposed establishment of an Alumni Chapter at National University. The demand for such a chapter has created an absolute necessity for one at National and it is hoped that specific plans will be effected in the near future which will make this possible. 214 THE DOCKET Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity PREAMBLE TO THE CONSTITUTION We, the brethern of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, in order to establish and perpetuate a union of brotherly love, dedicated to mutual helpfulness, service, and fraternalism, aiming to stimulate a respect for the law of the land and learning in its various branches, to promote zeal and ambition in its study, to maintain the high standards of the American Bar, and for the advancement of the highest ideals of ethical and professional honor, do- ordain and adopt this constitution as the supreme law of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity.

From this humble beginning in 1914 has grown a truly national organization, now numbering more than eight thousand members, in thirty-six active chapters and nine alumni chapters, drawn together by the belief that CHARACTER is the true test of manhood, that scholarship is the first duty of a student, and that participation in all worth-while forms of social and professional activity are to be encouraged as developing a well-rounded pro- fessional group. The active chapters of Washington, Mu Chapter of National University, Alpha Mu Chapter of Columbus University, Alpha Rho Chapter of the Wash- ington College of Law and the Washington Alumni Chapter were hosts to the twentieth annual convention which convened here in December, 1934. To perpetuate the memory of our beloved Brother Glenn Willett Mu Chapter has established the Glenn Willett Memorial Library, the purpose of which will be to provide book scholarships to the members of Mu Chapter.

DOROTHY PARKER 22 232 SORORITIES THE DOCKET Cy Pres Club O RGANIZED February 22, 1920, by four women who had availed themselves of the recent innovation which admitted women as law students at National University, the Cy Pres Club is a lasting reminder of the ideals and aspira- tions of its founders. With the purpose of stimulating an atmosphere of good-fellowship and a genuine respect for the high intellectual and ethical standards of the legal profes- sion, the Cy Pres Club was founded; its aims have been attained in the closely bound group of women law students at the University. The club boasts the distinc- tion of being the largest, as well as the oldest, women’s organization at National. This year the New Deal bestowed its blessi ngs upon the Club. In September, 1934, thirty-eight women entered the law school and all of them joined the Cy Pres Club, making the membership the largest in the history of the Club. Since the club was stronger — in numbers — than ever before, we seized the opportunity to improve the conduct of our faculty. As a result of conferences with Dean Johnson and Dr. Pergler, we organized the “Court of Unlimited Jurisdiction” which sat on the night of February 22, 1935, at the Carlton Hotel in connection with the Annual Dinner of the club. Mr. H. Winship Wheatley, President of the Bar Association of the District of Columbia, was one of our honored guests, as were Mrs. Charles F. Carusi, Mrs. Hayden Johnson and Mrs. Wheatley. The Presiding Judge was Edwina Avery, President of the Women’s Bar Association of the District of Columbia; Margaret Earley was Clerk of the Court; Bill Martin acted as the Marshall ; Dean Johnson and Doctor Pergler were Associate Defense Attorneys ; the members of the club prosecuted the Professor- Defendants, who were obliged to use their utmost skill in defense. As the wheels of justice turned, the Court of Unlimited Jurisdiction established unheard-of new rules of law and procedure and cleared its docket of pending cases with dispatch. Dean Johnson successfully defended against a charge of false pretenses. Doctor Pergler and Walter Bastian were probationed on promises to restore to us our constitutional rights. Although Judge Nathan Cayton and God- frey Munter attempted to trifle with the Court, they reckoned without our severe Judge and were speedily convicted of exceeding judicial discretion and disturbing the peace. Tom Rhodes was enjoined from departing from bachelorhood. The Judges Strasburger and Hatfield were ordered to interplead the legal connotation of the term “Portia.” Gene Woodson was given immunity by complying with the Court’s order to recite poetry. George Barse was properly “cammed down” with a “K. O.” George Edelin begged for and received the privilege of coaching the next Cy Pres football squad, and O. L. Mohundro was assessed damages for slander. Judge Luhring properly pleaded guilty to a charge of plagiarizing the scriptures. Earlier in the year, the club held its annual fall breakfast at the Admiral. Miss Fay Bentley, Judge of the Juvenile Court, was our guest and speaker. We are indeed proud to have had Judge Bentley with us. Her friendliness and good com- radeship will be long remembered as well as what she told us of the problems confronting her in her work. The officers and members of the club feel that this has been a particularly interesting year; we are indeed grateful for the cooperation of Dean Johnson, Doctor Pergler and all of the members of the faculty, and to the club of next year we wish greater success.

Within a short time after National University inaugurated a “New Dear’ for women by per- mitting their enrollment in the Law School, Omicron Chapter was formed, receiving its charter May 3, 1921. The aims of the Sorority are three-fold : the promotion of a keen appreciation of the standards which have earned for the legal profession a place apart in the minds of mankind ; the stimulation of scholastic attainment among its members ; and the cementing of the bonds of friendship, forged on the anvil of a common en- deavor. Fidelity to these ideals has empowered Kappa Beta Pi to extend it activities into the international field, the Sorority at present having, in addition to the forty student and eight alumnae chapters in this country, one chapter in Canada and another in France. Omicron Chapter has kept apace with the growth of the Sorority as a whole, contributing in a large measure to the progress of women at the University, and ever striving to emulate the high ethical standards and spirit of fellowship which Kappa Beta Pi symbolizes. In furtherance of these purposes the Chapter maintains, in conjunction with the University, three scholarships each year to which aspiring young women, otherwise unable to obtain legal training, are eligible. Throughout the year opportunity is afforded the members to hear discussions by outstanding women lawyers at the social affairs which the Chapter sponsors. Kappa numbers among its members many women who have achieved notable success in the legal profession: Judge Florence E. Allen, Federal Circuit Court of Appeals of the Sixth District; Judge Genevieve R. Cline, United States Customs Court of Appeals ; Mrs. Kathryn O’Loughlin McCarthy, former Congresswoman from Kansas ; Judge Mary Bartelme, Circuit Court, Illinois ; former Judge Kathryn Sellers of the Juvenile Court, District of Columbia; Judge Mary B. Grossman, Municipal Court, Cleveland, Ohio; Judge Lillian Westrapp, Municipal Court, Cleveland, Ohio; Judge Theresa Meikle, San Francisco, California; Judge Alberta Wright, Missouri; Judge Hughes, Texas; and our beloved Mrs. Ellen Spencer Mussey, dean emeritus, Washington College of Law. Distinguished sisters in other lands include: Madame Suzanne Grinberg, France; Judge Freda Bahl and Dr. Martha Hagemeyer, Germany ; Dr. Edith Ringwold-Meyer, Switzerland ; Dr. Eugenie Lekkerkerker, Netherlands; Dr. Bertha Lutz, Brazil; Helen Normanton and Sara Moshkowitz, England. 239 THE DOCKET Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority OFFICERS Anna L.

For convenience we shall list them as follows: Conservatives: Vandevanter, Sutherland, Butler and Mc- Reynolds : Liberals : Hughes, Roberts, Cordozo, Brandeis and Stone. This Court has been the busiest in years as well as the most important from the standpoint of the controversies which have faced it. Also it has, justly or not, been the most criticised Court for a long period. It should not be necessary to defend this greatest Court of all time but, since from all sides we hear reports that it has reached the twilight zone of its existence, that it has somehow failed in refusing to check the spending power of the Federal Government and other mistaken ideas, w-e feel it appropriate to take this opportunity to express ourselves on this much controverted subject. Let us first examine an editorial from the New York Times which we feel correctly expresses the true view : “The people’s confidence in the Supreme Court as an institution of our government was too strong to be destroyed. It has visibly grown with time. Throughout the Court’s checkered history thinking Americans have, conscious- ly or unconsciously, adopted ex-President Madison’s judgment that suprem- 248 THE DOCKET acy of Constitution and law, without a supremacy in both exposition and execution of them, would be as much a mockery as a scabbard put into the hands of a soldier without a sword in it! Theodore Roosevelt paid public tribute to the immense part played by the Supreme Court in clarifying the great policies through and by means of which this country has moved on to l er present position.” Many people seem to think that the Supreme Court has failed to check the spending power of the Federal Government. The truth of the matter is that the Constitution did not place, and was not intended to place, any restraint on the power of the people through their elected representatives in the Congress in appropriating and spending the public money except such as the people might exercise in the election of their representatives. Therefore we feel that the Court acted correctly in refusing to hold unconstitutional an appropriation of public money by Congress where the Court had no jurisdiction to do so. There have been opinions expressed to the effect that the Supreme Court decides cases according to the predilection of the justices thereof and then institutes a search for prior cases in support of such decisions and that this was the manner in which the Gold Clause Cases were decided. As every well- trained student of the law who is familiar with the opinions of the Supreme Court knows, there is nothing new or startling in the opinions of the Court in the recent Gold Clause Cases and that they were decided honestly we have no doubt. There seems to be a growing sentiment to the effect that the Supreme Court has stretched the Constitution far beyond the bounds intended for it by its authors. We believe that it was settled beyond controversy many years ago that the Constitution was an elastic document and that it was to be interpreted in the light of existing conditions. That Justices Hughes, Roberts, Cordozo, Brandeis and Stone have been very liberal in their interpretations we are well aware but we feel that Justice Holmes gave a true definition of a liberal when he said, “I define a liberal as a man who recognizes that growth is the law of life.” In Atcliinson T. S. F. Railroad v. The United States the Supreme Court recognized the existence of the economic emergency " which dominates con- temporary thought.” We believe that it should do so for the twentieth century has brought many new theories into the law and the Supreme Court should be and we believe is the leader of the new school of thought. A pragmatic, sociological jurisprudence is gradually supplanting the mechanical and con- ceptional systems of the past and there is a growing recognition by the Court of the significance of the social and economic background as a basis for justify- ing the constitutional validity of legislative acts. In conclusion we wish to state that it is our belief that an overwhelming- majority of American lawyers will agree that the Supreme Court of the United States has visibly grown with time and that of all the institutions of our government, national and state, it possesses the greatest confidence of the people. 249 THE DOCKET Acknowledgment T O Deans Hayden Johnson of the Law School and Charles Pergler of the School of Economics and Government the Editor wishes to extend his thanks for their many courtesies. To Luther Angle for his untiring efforts and downright hard work, enough thanks cannot be given in these few lines. The Junior class is indeed fortunate to number among its members one who has worked and watched the growth of this book from its conception to its reality. If the experience has not turned his thoughts away from the editorship of next year’s book then he is even more of an enthusiast than I believe him to be. The editing and management of any college annual is a highly compli- cated business. It plunges one into a maze of technical matters for which, only too frequently, he has little or no preparation. He is expected to produce a work which, from the printer’s standpoint would do credit to an experienced publisher. He is expected to know enough about printing, engraving and book- binding to turn out not only a high grade volume but one which is fairly inex- pensive because of the economies he is able to effect. Placed in such a situation the editor naturally has to rely a great deal on his printer and his engraver for help and so, for his advice, assistance and willingness to go far beyond the letter of his contract, Mr. Emmett Deady of the Lynchburg Engraving Co. has earned my lasting gratitude. Also thanks must be given to Mr. Raymond Thompson and the J. P. Bell Co. for their cooperation in the last minute rush to place this book in your hands before the end of school. Every book of this type must be a product, in its final analysis, of some- one’s taste as applied to a given set of material and so last, but far from least, I wish to express my most sincere thanks to Miss Kathryn Randall whose exquisite taste is responsible for whatever special merit this book may possess. 250 THE DOCKET PATRONIZE OUR ADVERTISERS The lines running at the foot of the following pages are excerpts from letters actually received at the H. 0.
