fl $ The first structure in America dedicated to the teaching of the law, — located at Litchfield, Con- necticut. Created by Tapping Reeve and carried on by James Gould, — 1775 — 1833. Ex Libris The 1931 Docket presents the Judiciary, the Executive, and the Legislative as its theme. No period in our history has been as conscious of the effects and influence of these different departments as the present. Therefore in pictures we tell the story of a perfect democracy. Copyright 1937 Wendell Scott Editor James W. Cherry, Jr. Business Manager Joseph C. Wells Advertising Manager THE DOORWAY TO A LEGAL EDUCATION We are indebted to John Randolph and James Madison of Virginia for our plan of government. During the Constitutional Con- vention the “Virginia Plan” became the basis for a National government that was theore- tically sound and eminently practical consist- ing of a Legislative, an Executive, and a Ju- diciary. This cheek and balance system of government has survived many governments throughout the world, and is a model for all Democracies. Edited and Published by The Class of 1937 of National University Law School Washington, D. C. THE 1937 DOCKE ' l Foreword T A he Docket Staff has assembled the material in these pages with the idea of showing the interests and influences, both cultural and scholastic National University has to offer its students. A full education is obtained by outside effects as well as by classroom recitation and lectures. We have in National University a school rich in tradition and legal success in the middle of the most dominant educating influence — the Government. With these interests and influences it is easy to understand why National University is second to none in legal professors, legal attainments, and legal lore. We thank National University as an entity, our professors, our surroundings and pledge emulation thereof. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Contents Faculty Seniors Juniors Freshmen School of Economics and Government Fraternities Sororities Features THE 1937 DOCKET Qui Bene Distinguit, Bene Docet T o present Godfrey L. Munter, A. Ph., L.L.B., L.L.M., mem- ber of the bar of the District of Columbia, Virginia, and California, Professor of Sales, Extraordinary Legal Reme- dies, and Practice and Procedure at National University, is to cre- ate an impression of austere dignity which, in reality, he makes every effort to dispel. A toppler of countless pedestals, it is characteristic that his own is first to fall. In declining to stand upon degrees and position, he unwittingly emphasizes rather than obscures the attributes through which that position was attained. As an instructor, Godfrey Munter shows himself intensely alive, keen and practical. He strips the law of the cloak of mysti- cism and reveals it a thing of human contrivance, based upon hu- man experience, but operated by men according to their several lights. In demonstrating the operation of the machinery of the law, he points out its weaknesses and its strength, sparing neither ab- stract doctrine nor human components. His are no reform lectures, however, but a pointing out of those features of our judicial system which might otherwise be learned by costly experience a service too often overlooked in ex- pounding dogmatic principles. The substantive laws receive due attention as, restlessly pac- ing the rostrum, he unleashes a powerful voice and emphasizes im- portant points with deliberately execrable diction, illustrating them with well chosen anecdotes. Ever interesting, he gives one the driest law in Munter’s inimitable fashion; and to those who are skeptical that learning is accelerated when facts are entertainingly presented, his courses are a complete answer. Ask any Munter student the fundamental principle of titles and the smiling reply will be, “You can not give what you haven’t got!” NATIONAL UNIVERSITY GODFREY L. MUNTER THE 1937 DOCKET ,31k 4 cniort;tm E mulation is the highest tribute his fellow men can pay to a man. More than an instinctive following of an ideal, it re- presents a conscious endeavor to attain, through the means another has shown to be efficacious, a more lofty place not only in the esteem of the community but in the more closely guarded circle of one’s own self-respect. In Hayden Johnson was found a man truly worthy of such emulation, for in that kindly gentleman, who from the wealth of his knowledge did impart to us with rare clarity and persuasiveness the fundamental concepts of equity jurisprudence, we were pri- vileged to know a man great by all the standards of civilization. A citizen of the highest type, a leader in civic betterment, an eminent scholar and educator, and an attorney justly renowned, it is a fitting commentary upon his character that he was best known and most revered as a just and honorable man. Equity was Hayden Johnson’s guiding light — that essential equity which contemplates an honest and direct approach to all life’s problems, and a wholehearted fulfillment of one’s duty to the community. As he once expressed it, “Great things are made easy by small, unpleasant tasks well done.” Such was his philosophy and much of his wisdom. His great- est service to us, and the many students who have gone before, was that we were privileged to know him, and from him learn the true value of those basic virtues. Our greatest tribute to him will be the practice and perpetuation of those principles which he so magnifi- cently exemplified. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY HAYDEN JOHNSON THE 1937 DOCKET Chancellor’s Message S uccess depends not only upon an adequate knowledge of the basic principles of a chosen occupation or profession, but also upon loyalty to those principles and intelligence and energy in their practical application. There is no short cut to real success. This admonition is given as you are about to leave your Alma Mater. Although the goal may seem inaccessible at times, be patient and unafraid, and, with the will to struggle ever onward and upward, you will reach that measure of success which you de- serve. “Would any man be strong, let him work; or wise, let him observe and think; or happy, let him help; or influential, let him sacrifice and serve.” On behalf of the Trustees, Officers, and Fac- ulty of the University, I bid you farewell. I do so with the hope that, through the years to come, we may all have pleasant mem- ories of our work together. Charles S. Hatfield NATIONAL UNIVERSITY CHARLES S. HATFIELD Chancellor THE 1937 DOCKET The Dean’s Message T he class of 1937 is about to enter the ranks of the legal profession at a time when the mission and the functions of lawyers are very much discus- sed and the very profession is subjected to much questioning. This is noth- ing new in its history, and it is a phenomenon which merely indicates that today more than ever lawyers have exceptional opportunities of leadership by the very nature of their activities before the courts and in legislative bodies. When so much is being questioned, and when old values are being revalued, a lawyer, to be at his best, must understand the trend of the times ; he must know something, indeed much, of present-day economic and social needs. A lawyer may know all the statutes and all the decisions of courts, but if he looks upon them and uses them merely as rules of a game he is still a poor lawyer. Decisions have value and are of real importance only in so far as they apply living principles. Law is and must be a stabilizing factor in society; but law, if we are to avoid disaster, must not make for pertification. Of all classes graduating from the National University I have been associated with, for obvious reasons the class of 1937 will always stand out in my memory. May all of its members be successful in their chosen walk of life, and may they rise to the opportunities beckoning to them. Charles Pergler NATIONAL UNIVERSITY CHARLES PERGLER Dean of Law School THE 1937 DOCKET - Historical Sketch T he history of National University presents an enviable record of achievement, dating from 1869, when the school was first chartered, to the present time. Five Presidents of The United States have served as Chancellors Ex-Officio of Na- tional University during its existence; namely Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland. Among the more than seven thousand graduates of National will be found many who have done honor to themselves, their school and their country in many and various capacities. The Alumni of National is represented in num- erous state and federal courts, in Congress, in the cabinet and in other high offices. The high regard which the local bar has for Na- tional graduates is manifested by the fact that the last four presi- dents of the District of Columbia Bar Association have been alum- ni of National University. The practical and efficient methods of teaching the law begun by W. B. Wedgewood, Arthur MacArthur, Eugene Carusi, Richard H. Alvey, and their eight associates is still prevailing at National University, and the hopes of George Washington are being fulfilled. National University is one of the oldest law schools in the United States and enjoys an unusually high standing among the legal profession. NA ' FIONA L UNIVERS1T) JOHN L. CASSIX Assistant Dean of The Laxc School Secretary of The Board of Trustees THE 1937 DOCKE ' l The Editor’s Message T X he Docket Staff this year presents. National University Law School, the Judiciary, the Executive, the Legislative, and other pictures of Washington. We believe that a year book should not only reflect personal and intellectual memories but the surround- ings that tend toward a full education. We thank the class for their assistance and encouragement in the compilation of this book. No publication can be successful without the concerted help of all and it is gratifying the cooperation we have received. We hope you like it. Thanks.

NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Supreme Court T he Constitution established “one Supreme Court and left to Congress the task of setting up other Federal courts as are necessary. The first Congress passed the famous Judiciary Act of 1789. This organized the Supreme Court and established lower Federal courts. Americans believe that no branch of our gov- ernment has been more successful in its workings than the judicial branch. that the judicial branch is the feature which crowns our entire system of government A judge of the Supreme Court is appointed by the President with the approval of Senate. No man can run that gauntlet of selectivity if he has one iota of unfairness, unkindness, prejudice or intellectual dishonesty about his makeup. He may hold his position during good behavior. — which has meant for life. He performs his work without fear or favor, for he cannot be forced out of his position. He upholds the Constitution and the laws of the United States, and deals out justice to everyone alike. The Constitution is the supreme law of the land, the Supreme Court has the final power to pass on any law made either by Congress or by the legislature of a state; it has power to decide whether the law is in accord or whether it is at var- iance with the Constitution.

All instructors are specialists in the subjects they teach. THE 1937 DOCKET A Book 7 wo Wlien Congress convenes in January and on other occasions the President of the United States addresses a joint session of the Legislative branch of the government. This view presents the first Congress to assemble since the adoption of the 20th amendment to the Constitution of the United States. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Legislative T o perfect the scheme of an ideal government the Legislative branch was es- tablished to give direct recognition to the will of the people. The legislative branch or Congress which is composed of the House of Representatives and the Senate makes the laws, thereby reflecting the will of the people or suggesting remedies by laws to enhance the general welfare of the people. All of the three pow- ers of the government, — legislative, executive and judicial, are vested in the Senate. As one of the branches of Congress it exercises its legislative power; under the Con- stitutional Mandate, requiring the Senate’s advise and consent to all nominations made by the President to federal offices, it exercises its executive power; and when the Senate sits as a court of impeachment of federal officers who are tried for ‘high crimes” and “misdemeanors” it exercises its judicial power. The House of Representatives has three powers which the Senate does not have; first, the House alone introduces or originates bills for raising money, although the Senate may pro- pose changes in it; second, the House may elect the President in case the usual method for his election fails; and, third, the House may bring charges of impeach- ment. Seniors THE 1937 DOCKET The President’s Message F or three years a distinguished and conscientious faculty lias labored with assiduous care to ground us in the fundamentals of the common law. Having prepared us for the practice of a great profession, by giving us a firm foun- dation on which to base our future study , their task is now complete. We now stand on our own feet, the successes and failures with which we are to meet will be the direct results of our individual efforts and abilities. Though we are now the proud possessors of LL.B. degrees, we must realize that we are by no means ready to begin the practice of law. Several more years of study, study and work far harder than that of the last three years must be gone through before we can really look upon ourselves as competent practicing attorneys. Many of our class will find only humble places in the profession which we have chosen, a few will meet with a moderate success, and a very few will climb to places of distinction and leadership. But regardless of the narrowness or breadth of the influence which each individual may wield in the legal profession, each of us should vow to always remember that, “Laws are made for men, not men for laws.” If we can always bear in mind that our system of law is a flexible, growing thing and not a stagnant set of rules, that the primary object of laws is to enable the pop- ulation of the earth to live together in peace and happiness, and that progress and advancement can come only through change, then and then only may we hope to play a small but creditable part in the long process of perfecting the greatest of all legal systems, and in the constant struggle for liberal and equitable legislation.

GORMAN HELENA LOUISE LOVELESS Forty-seven THE 1037 DOCKET Baccalaureate A s we are about to complete three years of intensive prepara- tion for the practice of law, it is fitting that we pause a mo- ment and consider the demands of that one outstanding fea- ture of the profession, responsibility. In a thousand ways we have unconsciously been impressed by the extent to which our system for the administration of justice is dependent upon the individual attorney. A client seeks his counsel, and then counsel sits in private judgment upon the merits of the cause. If he deems it actionable, upon him devolves the intricate task of preparation. From the com- mencement of the suit, the court looks to the attorney for an order- ly presentation of the salient facts and the applicable doctrines of law. Thus from the beginning to end the greatest responsibility for the just decision of the cause rests squarely upon the attorney. It is imperative that we, who are privileged to enter the pro- fession at a time when the law is achieving a heightened impor- tance as the vehicle of rapid changes in the social, economic and political structure of the country, understand and accept the duty which thus devolves upon us. Not only must we understand our particular factual situation, the broad background from which the controversy arose and the principles of law involved, but we must consider and present every aspect of the case which, in the light of present conditions, might be a factor in the determination of the cause.

The opportunity to practice what has been learned is given in the legal laboratory, the moot court. In the scene above Judge Cayton is presiding over a session of the Law Moot Court. Our experiences in moot court this year will long be remembered as pleasant as well as instructive. We are grateful to judges of the moot courts for their patient and wise guidance and we hope that when around the counsel table and be- fore the court or jury we will remember the things that they have told us about procedure.

UNI VERS IT) The President and His Cabinet T he Constitution of the United States provides that the President may require the opinion in writing, of the principal officer in each of the executive de- partments, upon any subject relating to the duties of their respective offices. By the words “executive departments” the Constitution takes for granted that de- partments, under the President’s direction, are to carry his work of enforcing the laws. The Cabinet Members give the President written reports of their departments, they also meet at his direction to advise and help him. It is said that Lincoln once asked his cabinet whether or not he should do a certain thing. Each member voted “no.” Lincoln himself voted “aye,” then added, “The ayes have it.” The President asks for advice then follows it or not as he thinks best. The cabinet members are very important in the work of the government. THE 1937 DOCKET MASON B. BRAY President, Class of 1938 NATIONAL UNIVERSITY President Vice-President . .

Finance Committee One Hundred Twenty-three THE 1937 DOCKEl History of the Junior Class W ell, here we are in 1937, and the Class of 1938 may be found, as always, scrambling for seats in classes little depleted by major examinations. Well, here we are — as previously remarked — with pardonable pride in our achievements which are beginning to evince itself among the members of the class. Witness the green young freshman of 1935, now metamorphozed with the hard won understanding of Agency, Contracts, Torts and Criminal Law nestling under his hat who is beginning to look like “something”, as they say. Under the stern supervision of our Freshman President, Steele Kennedy, our class elections were held and when all but the shouting was over, when all candidates were hoarse, it was clear that Miles Magargel had won the Presidency, that Mason B. Bray was Vice-President, Leila Terrill, Secretary, Lorrena McClosky was in charge of the money bags and David Youngblood was again Sergeant-at-Arms. Presently the chair of President was vacated, Magargel resigning, and the position thus vacated was promptly filled by our popular Vice-President who immediately appointed Frederick Glasgow to succeed himself as Vice-President. Thus happily steered through our Junior year we have been trying hard to live up to the proverbial idea of a Junior, and have carried it oft pretty well, though One Hundred Twenty- four NATIONAL. UNIVERSITY secretly we’ve been looking forward to the time when we may adopt the serious and aloof manner of a senior. No more perfect selection could have been made for Chair- man of our Social Committee than Culver Chamberlain. Polished and capable, he has successfully headed the Freshman Mixer, the Fall Term Ball and the brilliant Junior Prom, held on April 1st at the Shoreham, which was the climax of the social activities of the class for the year. This year our professors will probably subject us to the toughest exams ever administered, but experience has shown that it is hard to down the Class of 1938. We look forward to a full roster next September and feel that this will be due in no small part to the interest and inspiration we have gained in the ancient halls of our Alma Mater. One Hundred Twenty- five THE 1937 DOCKET Book Four The Department of State T he first department of our government, and the first of importance to be established was the Department of State, under the direction of the Secre- tary of State. He is custodian of the great documents of the United States, its treaties, and all laws of Congress. He conducts correspondence between the President and the states. He proclaims the admission of new states to the union, and amendments to the constitution. He has charge of the great seal of the United States which lie affixes to all presidential orders, commissions, and proclamations. These duties concern our domestic affairs. Both in peace and in war that work is of the greatest importance, for under the Secretary of State serve all the United States representatives to foreign countries — ambassadors, ministers and consuls. These carry on the business of the United States government with the countries to which they are sent. They protect American citizens and promote American inter- ests. The State Department issues passports to all people who wish to go to foreign countries and protects them while they are abroad. The administration of the War and Navy Departments are carried on in the State, War and Navy Building. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Department of Treasury T he Secretary of the Treasury manages the finances of the nation. His office is unique in that, unlike the other Cabinet Members, he owes a great re- sponsibility directly to Congress. Under the direction of the Secretary of Treasury the revenue of the country is collected. After Congress passes a law laying a duty on imports, it is left to the Secretary of Treasury to collect that duty from every importer. He directs the safe keeping of money so collected. He directs its disbursement according to law. All money coined or printed by the United States government is coined or printed under the direction of the Secretary of Treasury. The Treasury Department has charge of the construction of new federal buildings, the administration of the Coast Guard, the Public Health Service, and the work of secret service agents. The Secretary of the Treasury in his reports of national finances shows to the people the state of the Treasury, the money deposited therein, the debts outstanding, the amount of taxes and the governmental expenditures.

Waldmann One Hundred Tzventy-nine THE 1937 DOCKET History of the Class of 1939 Per Curiam : — T here assembled on September 28, 1936 in the lower Auditorium some 350 members of the Freshman Class together with many friends and upper class- men to attend the opening exercises for the scholastic year 1936-1937. Here amongst great speeches by the Chancellor, the Dean and members of the Law Faculty we were initiated as embryo attorneys to the traditions and glory of National University. Our work commenced in earnest and ’ere we had started the study of Agency and learned the “Doctrine of Estoppel” it became incumbent that as a class we should organize as such. We then proceeded with the nominations and electing of officers. The number of candidates for each office made it necessary to hold a run-off election which resulted as follows: FOR PRESIDENT William A. Monster — 109 James Patrick Gallagher — 131 FOR VICE-PRESIDENT Powell Connor — 144 Norman Rogers — 91 One Hundred Thirty NATIONAL UNIVERSITY FOR SECRETARY Harold Alderson — 105 Virginia Silver — 130 FOR TREASURER Constance Deenihan — 85 Dorothy Fluck — 151 FOR SERGEANT-AT-ARMS Hugh McCullough — 88 Fisher Black — 144 Were it not for a limited amount of space a full account of the election, the speeches, turmoil and electioneering would be gone into at detail; suffice it to say it was a political pot purri and a good time had by all. The officers selected are of the highest type and representative students. Immediately following the election President Gallagher appointed various committees most important of which was the Constitutional Committee composed of the following students: — William A. Molster, Chairman; Walter J. Turnbull, Cle- ment I. Nusbaum, Mrs. Florence M. McClouth, Bryan J. Gorden, Jack Lyon Bateli- eller, Frederick P. Hobart, Charles Everitt Hutsler, Paul V. Last and Hugh Everitt Rozelle. This committee drew up a Constitution and set of By-Laws that are to guide us through our college years. It was excellently drafted and received the unanimous approbation of the class. Pursuant to the Constitution a second election was held to name the officers of the Executive Committee and the following received the highest number of votes: — Joseph Andrews, III, Chairman, William A. Molster, Constance C. Deenihan, John J. Crim and Regina Marie Deenihan. This committee acts as an advisory board to the President as representing the thought of the entire class as a matter of expediency. As the Docket goes to press the Social Committee is working hard to make successful a Prom and get together the last Saturday of the Spring Term, May 22nd, when school will be over for most of us until next fall. This is written as our first year is drawing to a close, each and all have made many friends. We are a body united in a common bond in the study of the worlds most respected profession. We have run the gauntlet of “revocation,” “estate by the entirety,” “Patterson’s prudent Virginian,” “nemo dat quod non habet,” “mens rea,” “bonds for bloated billionnaires,” “notes by George,” “innkeepers,” “tort- feasors,” “damnum absque injuria ” and the “rule against perpetuity.” we have made a noble stride toward the monitors 70 questions, our professors have been courteous and kindly and we go forward into our Junior year with renewed hope and pros- pects. Joseph Andrews, III, Historian, Class 1939 One Hundred Thirty-one THE 1037 DOCKET Book Five The Department of Justice T he Department of Justice is under the direction of the Attorney General of the L nited States. He acts as government lawyer, advising the President and the Cabinet Members on legal questions. Recently the Department of Justice has been greatly enlarged as a result of a public demand for a concerted drive on organized crime. Congress responded to this demand by enacting laws in- creasing the number and scope of criminal offenses with which the Federal authori- ties could deal, by adding money to the annual appropriation for the Bureau of investigation, such money to be expended in the identification and apprehension of criminals. Thus the criminal division of the Department of Justice was expanded and a nation-wide war was on against kidnappers, bank robbers, racketeers and other gangsters. All this was necessitated by the failure or inability of state authorities to deal successfully with crimes which were heretofore regarded as local in character and not coming within the purview of the Federal laws, but which were committed by roving criminals knowing no state boundaries. The success of the Department of Justice in combating crime is a heritage that every American can well be proud. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Post Office Department P robably one of the finest services rendered by the Federal Government is that of the Post Office Department under the direction of the Postmaster General. Today mails are transported by trucks, speedboats, airplanes, railroads, and steamships. Many additional services have been added to the original service of forwarding ' letters, — such as money-orders, the parcel post service and postal sav- ings system. On the wall of this fine building you will find this beautiful ideal for the largest business in the world: “The Post Office Department in its ceaseless labor pervades every channel of commerce and every theatre of human enterprise, and while visiting, as it kindly does, every fireside, mingles with the throbbings of almost every heart in the land. In the amplitude of its beneficence it ministers to all climes and creeds and pursuits with the same eager readiness and equal fullness of fidelity. It is the delicate ear trump through which alike nations and isolate individuals whis- per their joys and their sorrows, their sympathies to all who listen to their coming.” Post Graduates THE 1937 DOCKET LOWELL WHITTIER BASSETT Washington, I).

The Secretary of Interior administers the national parks, public lands, pensions of soldiers, Indian affairs, and the reclama- tion service. One of its most important bureaus is that of education, in which bureau information as to what other progressive school systems are doing can be obtained. In recent years we have been forced to realize that it is imperative that our national resources be conserved for future generations, and it may be said that the conserva- tion of these resources has become the most important function of the Interior Department. NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Department of Agriculture T he American farmer is a most important figure in our social and political structure as evidenced by this great departmental service to them. The far- mer benefits by the collection of facts and dissemination of information relat- ing to agriculture. The building of major interstate and intercounty roads; weather forecasting; biological and economic research; forestry; regulatory work designed to eliminate or prevent social hazards; and the grading and standardization of com- modities are among the services rendered by this department that promote our nation- al health and well-being. So efficient are the means of disseminating agricultural in- formation that it is said that where, as formerly, there was a gap of a quarter of a century between the knowledge obtained in the laboratory and the putting of it into useful farm practice, the space has been nearly closed. Radio, the press and ex- tension services, motion pictures, and exhibits all have a part in making available promptly the valuable information uncovered by experts. Economics o Government THE 1937 DOCKET The Dean’s Message T here was a time when I thought that mental brilliance was the heart of success. My views have changed. Now I think that two, at least, of the requisites for success are honesty and energy. You are graduating because you have these qualities. You have had the honesty to look squarely into the face of your future; the energy to act according to your fearless self-analy- sis. You have had the courage — a compound of these essentials — to carry thus far your legal efforts. The attorney with these qualities need have no fear of the future.

One Hundred Forty- five THE 1937 DOCKET The School of Economics and Government T his branch of the University was established to meet the growing demand in the national capital among those aspiring to a business or public career, for specialized university training in economics and government. With a view of providing a carefully planned course which would be correlated with the studies offered in the Law School, in the fall of 1923 the Board of Trustees, at the instance of Chancellor Charles F. Carusi, opened this department under the name of the College of Finance and Business Administration. Its rapid expansion soon developed it into the present School of Economics and Government. The aims of the School are : ( 1 ) to give instruction to men and women primarily in Economics, History, Sociology, International Relations, and Political Science; (2) to prepare students for the domestic and foreign service of the various branches of the Government; and (3) to supply a foundation and background in the social sciences to law students and to those who have already been admitted to the Bar. EDUCATION FOR BUSINESS AND CITIZENSHIP The successful business man, using the term in its broadest sense, is a highly trained individual wdio must be a real specialist in a chosen field and must also pos- sess a foundation of general knowledge that can be obtained only by close and sysematic study. Experience is indispensable in all walks of life, but much that men, until recently, acquired by the trial and error method can be learned in the class- room, under competent instructors. The business man in order to succeed must understand not only business technique, but also social and economic phenomena, and must conduct his affairs in accordance with recognized economic and social laws, as well as with a knowledge of the governmental organization of the body politic. Therefore, a School of Eco- nomics and Government, with a properly balanced curriculum, fills a real need and affords the present and prospective business man and woman an opportunity to develop their abilities and to obtain a firm grip upon problems they are to meet in daily affairs of life. SPECIAL TRAINING FOR LAW STUDENTS In organizing the School of Economics and Government particular attention has been devoted to the needs of the Law School student body. Many members of this group are desirous of obtaining thorough collegiate training and appreciate the advantages this would give them. For such students courses are offered which are designed not only to enable them to obtain credits toward a collegiate degree, but also to obtain such instruction in the fields most helpful to the lawyer — economics and government. The work of the lawyer of today is concerned not merely with questions in- extricably mixed. Particularly is this true in Washington where by far the most lucrative practice is not before the courts, but before government departments. Constitutional questions so frequently raised in these cases are best handled by the One Hundred Forty-six NATIONAL UNIVERSITY lawyer with adequate training in history and government, while in their practical aspects a knowledge of economics, finance, investments, accounting, taxation, and similar subjects is almost indispensable. Particular emphasis is laid upon the courses in economics because of the increasng opportunities for legal talent in the fields of coporation management, as trust officials of banks, and as trustees of estates. ADVANTAGES OF STUDYING AT THE NATIONAL CAPITAL To the students of economics and government, Washington offers special ad- vantages. It is the seat of the Nation’s business. Here are various departments of the Federal Government; here are formulated and debated the laws and policies which affect trade and commerce, both foreign and domestic; here are the various agencies which exert a powerful influence upon business procedure, such as the Federal Trade Commission, the Interstate Commerce Commission, the Tariff Commission, the Federal Reserve Board, the Bureau of Internal Revenue, and the Departments of Commerce, Labor and Interior. Other trade and industrial organi- zations having headquarters in this city are the United States Chamber of Com- merce, the Automobile Chamber of Commerce, Bureau of Railway Economics, Na- tional Education Association, National Geographic Society and American Federa- tion of Labor. Washington, in short, is a vast political, social and economic labora- tory to be made use of according to the energy and will of those who may profit by observing its processes at close range. The numerous museums and libraries, containing rich treasures of literary and historical material, offer unusual advantages to the research student. Chief among these is the Library of Congress, the second largest library in the world, containing more than 3,000,000 books and pamphlets. THE TEACHING STAFF In selecting its faculty the University, throughout its history, has striven to keep always in mind the elemental, yet often obscured, truth that the problem of education ultimately resolves itself into the fundamental relationship of the student and the teacher. It has constantly emphasized the paramount importance of the instructors men who in their subjects have received special academic training, who have had practical experience, and who possess, moreover, those rare attributes of personality which distinguish the real teacher from the pedant. Some of the present faculty are government specialists ; others are business executives, or practising lawyers; some are scholars engaged in research in Wash- ington. Able men of this type, many of whom have formerly served elsewhere as university teachers, give students instruction of the highest quality of excellence. It is worthy of note that many of the present teaching staff hold doctorate degrees from such graduate institutions as Harvard, Yale, Pennsylvania, Johns Hopkins, American and the London School of Economics and Political Science. One Hundred Forty-seven THE 1937 DOGKE ' I Book Seven The Department of Commerce I t works to promote our commercial interests. Like the Department of the In- terior, it performs a wide variety of services. It includes the Patent Office, the Census Bureau, the Bureau of Mines, the Bureau of Standards, the Bureau of Fisheries and others. The promotion of commerce and industry, through the dissem- ination of rapidly changing commercial information at home and abroad, through analysis of basic statistical and other data collected by the Department, through safeguarding the products of ingenuity and initiative bv patent protection, is the duty and aim of the Department of Commerce. Protection of life and property by marine and air regulations, by preparation of maps, charts and tables, by broadcasts of weather, — as well as business conditions, is among the great range of responsi- bilities of this organization. Scientific research to develop the products of industry and make them available in reliable, less expensive, and safer forms for the consumer, direct information aids to individual industries, improvement of commercial and sportsmen s fisheries, and enforcement of air and marine safety principles are some of the services rendered to specific segments of national economic order and to the United States as a whole. NA TIONAL UNIVERSITY The Department of Labor T he youngest department of our government is that of Labor, having been added in the year nineteen hundred and thirteen. Its purpose is to foster, promote and develop the welfare of wage earners and improve their working condi- tions. In this department are the important bureaus of immigration and naturaliza- tion. The first enforces the immigration laws of Congress. The Naturalization Bureau follows up the immigrant, helps him to become Americanized, and finally to be- come a nationalized citizen. The Children’s Bureau and the Women’s Bureau seek to promote the welfare of children and working women. More and more the Labor De- partment reaches out into our social structure and improves and corrects those many things that tend to make an unhappy and discontented population. This work is ever increasing and important to the general welfare of our country. Organizations THE 1937 DOCKET Sigma Nu Phi (LEGAL) JOSEPH H.

During the past year a large number of men were initiated, with the Grand Secretary attending the first initiations, and banquet, which was held in January at the Lee Hotel. In 1935 The Glenn Willett Memorial Library was established to assist mem- bers who are unable to purchase all of their text-books. In December 1936, Vice-Chancellor Sanderson attended the National Conven- tion, in Augusta, Georgia, as the official delegate of this chapter. The requisites of this fraternity are a high Christian character and scholar- ship. It is urged that the members take an active interest in the general student ac- tivity as well as those of the alumni. The members of MU suffered a great loss in the death of Dr. Hayden John- son, in the spring of 1936. Dr. Johnson was greatly interested in the welfare, and work of the fraternity as well as being an active member. One Hundred Fifty-nine THE 1937 D0CKE7 S igma delta kappa had its inception at the University of Michigan in 1914, and during the past twenty-three years more than 8,500 members have been initiated into the bonds of Christian brotherhood. It has been termed by Banta’s Greek Exchange as the “fastest growing pro- fessional Greek Letter Fraternity in the country”. Its officers have been young men who have taken an active part in building up the organization to the place it now holds in the collegiate world. It has chapters from New York to San Francisco, and Michigan to Texas with alumni in every state of the Union, and many foreign countries.

In 1923, the late Charles Francis Carusi placed at its disposal two full scholar- ships in the school of law, to be awarded by the club to worthy Master Masons who were unable to pay the necessary tuition. The club furnishes free the required books to these students.

Theodore Rislev One Hundred Sixty-eight NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Alpha Beta Phi Legal Fraternity ALPHA CHAPTER Incorporated Under The Laics of The District of Columbia, 1923 A s regards the study of law, the field of law, and the opportunities in law, we of Alpha Beta Phi have continually striven, through direction, guidance and program, to avoid the bare idealism which is so characteristic of many fra- ternal organizations, and to achieve for ourselves, concrete, lasting and beneficial results. It is quite obvious that the students attending Law School under the exacting conditions and circumstances as do the majority of those attending National Univer- sity have but little time to devote to extra-curricular activities, resultingly making it incumbent upon any group or organization which would monopolize such valuable time, to offer greater benefits to the individual than could be achieved elsewhere. It is because of these problems that have faced us in the past and which shall again face us in the future that every member of this organization looks upon Alpha Beta Phi as a natural and substantial part of his Law School career, as an active, bene- ficial organization, which serves its purpose as surely as do the various subjects composing the curriculum. It is for these reasons that during the fourteen years of its existence, Alpha Beta Phi has continuously striven to keep abreast with the rapid- ly changing concepts of government and law ; we have realized the growing impor- tance of allied education in addition to that strictly along legal lines; we are aware of the essential necessity of a good speaking voice, and the ability to talk extempor- aneously and cogently; nor have we underestimated the vital importance of good health as a pre-requisite to the successful study and pursuit of our chosen profession. These activities, and others equally difficult to cover to any degree in school, we have sought by various appropriate means to bring home to ourselves, looking toward a well-rounded law school career. We have and will always encourage a respect for age and experience generally and in the law particularly, willing to learn from those whose feet have trodden the path long before ours; we will continue to en- courage a lively discussion of moot questions, our annual competitive debates and essay contests which tend to develop a higher degree of legal ability; we will con- tinue to conduct a moderate program of social events and seasonal athletic activi- ties, providing valuable relaxation for body and mind. That our plan has proven a good one is demonstrated by the high type of lawyers that now represent this or- ganization and the bonds of close friendship and sympathetic understanding that has grown up among us all. Our organization represents the attachment which grows naturally upon those to whom the study of the law is a source of ever-increasing enjoyment, composed of men who have sought to reinforce their legal education by alignment with others of a common purpose. And that common purpose is the desire to someday, step before the bar, trustworthy attorneys, respected by the courts, a source of honor to our families, our school and our botherhood.

Alvey Debating Society T he Alvey Legal Debating Society continued on its march to success in the debating field for the third year and its latest success was just recorded by a unanimous victory over the Freshman Debating Team. The subject of the debate was “Resolved that the Constitution of the United States be so amended as to permit a reenactment of the N. R. A. in principle.” The Alvey Society was repre- sented by David Trundle, Donald Mitchell, Harry Clendenning and Leila Terrill, alternate. Not only did our representatives win the debate but Mr. Trundle was crowned as the best speaker. For three successive years the Alvey Society has won unanimous decisions over all opponents. The following officers were elected for year 1936-1937. President, Giles Mor- row; 1st Vice-President, James S. Hayden; 2nd Vice-President, Ilene Crigler ; Sec- retary, Leila Terrill; Treasurer, John S. Kenestrick; Sergeant-at-Arms, Joe Under- wood; Historian, Marion Poole. Through the past year great enjoyment and much benefit has been derived by our association. The purpose of the Society is to further the art of debating among the student body and to participate in inter-collegiate de- bates. Through the able leadership of our President we have furthered our purpose and are now ready to hand over the torch to succeeding enthusiasts of debating. May they continue in our footsteps, accomplishing even greater things, bearing the ban- ner of Alvey Legal Debating Society to the heights of Success. Marion E.

One Hundred Seventy-tzvo NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The Simon Bolivar Club “AME A SU VECINO COMO SE AMA A SI MISMO” By Ignacio Ricardo Baca, President N ational University Law School has graduated many Latin-Americans of the Western Hemisphere whose legal attainments in their respective countries have injected a newer sense of pride in the blood of our people. We are just- ly proud of them, especially since the recent Montevideo Conference where their efforts were largely responsible for the better understanding that exists today among the peoples of the Americas. It is the purpose of the founders of this Club to implant the seeds of Good Will in every University attended by students of Hispanic descent so that we can all join forces in bringing about the realization of the ideals fostered by the immor- tal South American Liberator.

International ) Sorority T wenty-nine years ago Kappa Beta Pi, the first legal sorority for women, was founded at Chicago-Kent College of Law, Chicago, Illinois. It was incorpor- ated under the laws of Illinois, on December 15, 1908, a date which is an- nually celebrated by all Kappas. A pioneer also in the international field, Kappa Beta Pi was the first Greek-letter organization to establish a chapter in a foreign land. The aims of the Sorority are high and worthy: to encourage the study of law by women; to bind together in a spirit of good fellowship those women who have adopt- ed law as their profession; to maintain a high standard of scholastic achievement, and to raise the standard whenever possible ; and to practice the highest code of legal ethics, and encourage others to do so. Each of the student chapters fosters high scholastic attainments in a concrete way by the presentation of awards for academic achievements. Today there are forty-six student chapters in this country and abroad, as well as eight alumnae chapters. Our membership circles the globe, with Kappas in ac- tive practice in China, South Africa and Brazil, as well as in many of the countries on the continent of Europe, and the British Isles. Omicron Chapter at National University dates its existence from May 31, 1921, when its charter was granted, making it the second chapter in the city of Washington. Since that time it has grown in size as well as in accomplishments, and is proud to count among its members many who are engaged in active legal work here and else- where. Among the many distinguished jurists and lawyers on Kappa’s rolls may be mentioned Florence E. Allen, judge of the United States Circuit Court of Appeals, who holds the highest judicial office ever occupied by a woman, and Genevieve Cline, judge of the United States Customs Court. Omicron’s own Ellen K. Raedv, judge of the Municipal Court of the District of Columbia, and Hazel Palmer, assistant pro- secutor in Missouri, are well known to National University. Others whose abilities have been publicly recognized by judicial appointments are Sarah Tilghman Hughes, judge of the Circuit Court, Dallas Texas; Justine Wise Tulin, Domestic Relations Court Judge, New York; Judge Cecil B. Weiner, Children’s Court of Erie County, and the following Municipal Court judges: Theresa Meikle, San Francisco; Ida May Adams, Los Angeles; Mary B. Grossman and Lillian M.

Lombard Donna M. Davis Jenette Wilensky T he Cy Pres Club enjoyed one of the most successful years it has had since the idea of such an organization crystalized and the club created in 1920 by six women students. This exclusively feminine organization has become an integral part of the University and the social events under its sponsorship are an- ticipated events of the school year. At the beginning of the scholastic year the election of officers was held. It was presided over by Elizabeth Lipscomb, president of the Cy Pres Club during 1935- 1936. Marion Poole, who had served the club the year previous as chairman of the social committee was elected president by acclamation. The confidence placed in her by the club members has been more than justified by her energetic and imagina- tive leadership. During this year the traditional events of the Cy Pres Club, two breakfasts and the Washington Birthday Banquet, were enjoyed by the members and their guests. At the first breakfast, held on the Sunday following the first term examina- tions, the guests of honor were Pearl Bellman Klien, who delivered a most interest- ing and enjoyable talk, and Judge Ellen K. Ready, an honorary member of the Cy Pres. The Cy Pres Banquet, held every year on Washington’s Birthday was, this year, a particularly enjoyable affair. The members of the committees arranged an exceptionally clever program in which the faculty participated. Under the title of ‘Major Boner’s Hour”, the professors recounted experiences that were illustrative in a negative way of the perfect attorney. The guests of honor at the spring breakfast which took place at the end of the year were the members of the Cy Pres Club who were about to graduate. The purpose of the Cy Pres Club is to further the study of law by creating a unity among the women students of National University that is based upon a develop- ment of their common interests through friendly understanding and comradeship. It makes available to the women of National University, through extra-curricular activities, a knowledge of law that cannot be obtained in the lecture hall. Its en- thusiastic members agree that in the past year the Cy Pres Club has well served its purpose. Margaret Talty Reporter One Hundred Eighty NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Officers MARION E.

Tanyoan Member W e are soon to leave the halls of our beloved Alma Mater. Before we do so, it behooves us to bid her fond farewell, and also express our profound gratitude to the Faculty under whose guiding hands we have been in- tellectually ushered to the ultimate pursuit of our educational objective. As members of the Philippine Columbians of the National University, it will be an unfriendly gesture on our part if we do not acknowledge with due acclaim the fruitful and pleasant association we have had witli the Student Body,— fruitful because we have learned a great deal of the refinements and ideals of American youth, — pleasant because in our contacts we have cemented the bonds of good fellowship and true friendship. As we go forth from this great institution of learning, let us not forget that we have a solemn duty to perform. As young citizens of our country we are bound to be her leaders tomorrow. We have been schooled and nurtured under the bless- ings of American institutions. It therefore remains our sublime duty to help provide the youth of our native land with the learning thus acquired to the end that the welfare of our country will be materially enhanced. The first year of the Commonwealth transition period has just ended. The achievements during that past trial term are indications that spell success for the future Philippine Republic. Our people have no fear whatsoever of impending consequences. They have confidence in their ability to manage their own domestic affairs and an unshakable faith in Filipino statesmanship to conduct their foreign relations through the channels of intelligent diplomacy. In less than nine years, as provided for by Law (Public Act No. 127, Approved March 24, 1934), we hope to inaugurate the glorious advent of Philippine Independence. And, when that glor- ious day comes, it will mark the historical realization of America’s magnanimous promise, — the redemption of Filipino freedom. The whole world will then witness the full-grown flower of American democracy and civilization in the Orient Seas which will bloom in posterity from the barren hills of the Batanes to the palm clad shores of Jolo.

TANYOAN BIBIANO BITANGA Treasurer Member Member One Hundred Ninety-two NATIONAL VNIVERSITl Class Reflections I N September, 1934, we who stand today as the Class of 1937 began an associ- ation which has been pleasant in memory, profitable in experience, and en- lightening by virtue of hard work, extreme patience, and constant persistence. From almost every State in the Union, we came, to the number of five hundred, bearing with us an equal number of individual opinions as to the requirements for becoming a successful lawyer and the best method of acquiring the necessary educa- tion before our final tilt with the bar examiners. Knowing that a group cannot exist as a unit without a common rule, we first concerned ourselves with class organization. Amid flowery oratory and frank ribald- ry, shouts of glee, and groans of disappointment, class officers were elected and our constitution was adopted, on the basis of which (or in spite of which) we have continued through three years of law school. During the years that we have met, night after night, both in class rooms and in “cramming” sessions, there has grown within us not only an ever increasing know- ledge of the law, but a deep appreciation of the friendships formed and a feeling of admiration for the endeavor of each of us, in his individual way, to improve his position in life and to become a credit to the profession he has chosen as his own. In order that our brows might not become permanently lined from serious contemplation of the mysteries of the law, we have descended from stern dignity to happy frivolity at parties sponsored by the various organizations at National, be- ginning, in our Freshman year, with an informal “get-together” at the Hayloft, and climaxing, in a burst of glory, with the Senior Prom at the Mayflower Hotel. Though at times we have felt the road was unending, we feel that the reward of our efforts is now at hand; the hope of this reward has been the incentive which has urged us on, precept by precept, to the summit of our goal. As we stand at graduation, before the sacred portals through which we must pass before we may enter upon the pursuit of our career, we view in retrospection the road over which we have traveled. Long hours of toil and weariness fade into insignificance; we remember only the knowledge acquired, the inspiration gained, and the cherished associations formed in our years at National University. It is our hope and prediction that this Class of 1937 will have a fair repre- sentation in the future government of our Nation, and that a few of us, at least, will have a place in National University’s “Hall of Fame.” Myrtle Helm Class Historian One Hundred Ninety-three THE 1937 DOCKET - The Doctrine Of Separation Of Powers This Treatise teas written for the Docket by Dr. Charles Pergler, D.C.L., LL.D.j Statesman, Diplomat, Educator. The Editor T he doctrine of separation of powers is as old as expositions of the science of government. So we find Aristotle speaking of departments of government when he declares that “the first of these is the public assembly; the second, the officers of the State; the third, the judicial department’’. Polybius sees the great merit of the Roman political organization in what he considered its checks and balances. If the concept for a time disappeared, the cause lies in the downfall of the Roman republic and, quite later of course, the period of absolutism which fol- lowed feudalism, when, for that matter, all power was lodged in the hands of feudal lords. The revival of the idea appears as early as the 16th century, however, when the Frenchman Bodin pleads for administration of justice by independent courts. Later both the Englishman Locke and the Frenchman Montesquieu argue for a sep- aration of powers, and Blackstone particularly sees in this principle a guarantee of liberty. Due to the influence of the jurists referred to, especially of Montesquieu, the framers of American Constitutions, state and federal, were familiar with the princi- ple of separation of powers and most, if not all of them, were firm believers in its validity and usefulness. A factor of equal importance undoubtedly was colonial ex- periences, especially frequent clashes of colonial legislatures with royal governors. The Constitution of the United States does not in so many words provide for a separation of the departments, vet the division is established quite effectively by the declaration that “all legislative Powers herein granted shall be vested in a Congress of the United States”; that “the executive Power shall be vested in a Pres- ident of the United States of America”; and that “the judicial Power of the United States shall be vested in one supreme Court, and in such inferior Courts as the Congress may from time to time ordain and establish”. This clearly means that each department shall exercise only those powers entrusted to it by the Constitution and may not trespass upon the powers of other governmental branches except as this is e ' xpressly permitted by the fundamental law by way of what may be considered exceptions. Some of the State Constitutions are even more explicit in establishing the principle of separation of powers, and we find it declared in certain state con- stitutions even before the adoption of the Constitution of the United States. Thus the Constitution of Georgia of 1777 contained the provision that “the legislative, executive and judiciary departments shall he separate and distinct, so that neither exercise the powers properly belonging to the other”. In view of the provisions of the federal fundamental law it was inevitable that the problem of separation of powers should arise in a number of cases before the federal courts and ultimately reach the Supreme Court of the United States. In the leading case of Kilbourn vs. Thompson (103 U. S. 168, 26 L. Ed. 377) the Supreme One Flundrcd Ninety-four NATIONAL UNIVERSITY Court declared that “it is believed to be one of the chief merits of the American system of written constitutional law, that all powers intrusted to government, wheth- er state or national, are divided into three grand departments, the executive, the legislative, and the judicial’ . In that case it was ruled that no general power of inflicting punishment by the Congress of the United States is granted by the Consti- tution, and therefore a witness, upon whom punishment was imposed for refusing to testify and produce certain papers before a congressional committee investigating the settlement of the affairs of a bankrupt firm, was entitled to recover for false arrest against the Sergeant-at-Arms of the House of Representatives who acted pur- suant to a resolution which was held to be in excess of Congressional powers. In that case it was of course decided that the matter was one into which the House of Representatives had no jurisdiction to inquire; but the question was left open wheth- er the power did exist in so far as necessary to enable either House of Congress to exercise successfully their function of legislation. Later it was positively held, however, that power to secure needed information in order to exercise the legislative function effectively is an attribute of the power to legislate, or, as the Supreme Court expressed the principle, “that the power of in- quiry — with powers to enforce it — is an essential and appropriate auxiliary to the legislative function”. (McGrain vs. Daugherty, 273 U. S. 135, 71 L. Ed. 580). That power to legislate, entrusted by the Constitution to a legislative body, cannot be delegated may be called a constitutional truism, and the principle requires little more than a statement. It is simply an assertion of the maxim delegata potes- tas non potest delegari found in the law of agency and widely applied in the con- struction of constitutions, both federal and state. The more difficult question is, What is legislative power? Elsewhere the writer had opportunity to point out that “the essence of legislation is the declaration and creation of standards, rules, norms. It is the creation of Law. A German jurist defines it as ‘ a declaration of the domi- nant social organism (the state) by which a legal standard is created or imposed’ (Gareis). Everything else may be, and should be, entrusted to the administrative branch of the government. A legislative body is extremely unwise if it goes beyond its legitimate function, and it is this which frequently makes for trouble in a de- mocracy and gives rise to charges of inefficiency and that it is slow and cumbersome.” (World Affairs for December, 1936). In order to carry out congressional policy, it has been found necessary to en- trust discretionary powers to administrative commissions and executive officers, but of course within defined limits. If such limits are defined and if Congress does es- tablish a general rule for the guidance of administrative and executive officials, such powers are not considered an improper delegation of legislative functions. An out- standing example of this practice is the power of the Interstate Commerce Commis- sion to fix reasonable rates for interstate passenger and merchandise traffic after adequate notice and hearing. The rule is almost one of practical necessity because, manifestly, Congress is not in a position to determine every rate, and so to require in such and other cases would literally make government impossible. (Interstate Commerce Commission vs. Goodrich Transit Co., 224 U. S. 194, 56 L. Ed. 729). On similiar grounds, too, the Supreme Court has sustained the so-called flexible tariff ' law under which, upon proper investigation, the President bv proclamation may in- crease or decrease any rate or duty necessary to equalize differences in costs of pro- One Hundred Ninety-five THE 1937 DOCKET duction in the United States and the principal competing country in a given indus- trial field. (J. W. Hampton Co. vs. United States, 276 U. S. 394, 72 L. Ed. 624). It is only recently that questions of delegation of legislative power have come to the fore in the field of constitutional law in a manner requiring much considera- tion by the courts and the members of the Bar. This is obviously due to the expan- sion of governmental functions in meeting economic and social problems, and it is to be expected that in the future lawyers will be forced to wrestle with the issue much more than heretofore. It is a problem of government in the broad sense and not mere- ly of constitutional law in the narrower meaning. Waste of natural resources has led not only the federal government, but also a number of commonwealth governments, to attempt regulation in fields heretofore considered an untouchable preserve of private business and industry. Thus states have passed legislation regulating production and withdrawal from storage of petro- leum. Under the National Industrial Recovery Act, the President was authorized “to prohibit the transportation in interstate and foreign commerce of petroleum and the products thereof produced or withdrawn from storage in excess of the amount per- mitted to be produced or withdrawn from storage by any state law or valid regula- tion or order prescribed thereunder, by any board, commission, officer, or other duly authorized agency of a state”. The National Industrial Recovery Act also conferred upon the President the power “to prescribe such rules and regulations as may be necessary to carry out the purposes of the law”. The Supreme Court took the view that the provisions quoted are entirelv too broad; that no reasonably definite standard is laid down for the guidance of the executive, and that therefore Congress unconstitutionally attempted to delegate pow- er clearly legislative in character. (Panama Refining Co. vs. Ryan, 293 U. S. 388, 79 L. Ed. 446). Later the entire National Industrial Recovery Act was held unconstitutional is an unanimous opinion by the highest federal tribunal. The Act authorized “Codes of Fair Competition” to be formulated by trade or industrial associations, and gave these codes the character of laws to be enforced bv coercive measures. The profession was not surprised when this method of law-making by such associations, and not by Congress, was declared unauthorized by the Constitution (A. L. A. Schechter Poul- try Corporation et al vs. United States, 297 U. S. 495, 79 L. Ed. 1570). The “Bituminous Coal Conservation Act of 1935’ ' among other things also dele- gated the power to fix maximum hours of labor to a part of the producers and miners, and, also, producers of more than two-thirds of a district’s annual tonnage and a majority of the miners, were empowered to fix minimum wages for a district or group of districts. The court took the view that in effect this conferred upon a majority the power to regulate the affairs of a minority and that “this is legislative delega- tion in its most obnoxious form ; for it is not even delegation to an official body, pre- sumptively disinterested, but to private persons whose interests may be and often are adverse to the interests of others in the same business”. (Carter vs. Carter Coal Co., 80 L. Ed. 749). Under a very recent case (United States of America vs. Curtiss-Wright Ex- port Corporation, et al, 81 L. Ed. 166) a much greater delegation of legislative pow- Onc Hundred Ninety-six mi HIM 1 Mil Mini I I MIMMIMMIMMIMM IMI III!

This is on the theory that the investment of the Federal govern- ment with powers of external sov- ereignty does not depend upon the affirmative grants of the Constitu- tion. It is said, too, that federal power over foreign affairs is not only different in origin and essen- tial character from that over inter- nal affairs, but the President alone has the power to speak or listen as a representative of the nation. Con- gressional legislation in fields touch- ing upon foreign affairs, when its effectiveness depends upon negotia- tion and inquiry, must accord the President a degree of discretion which would not be admissible in do- mestic affairs alone. Therefore, a Joint Resolution of Congress, au- thorizing the President to prohibit the sale of arms and munitions of war in the United States to countries engaged in war in South America (the Chaco conflict), was not an in- valid delegation of legislative power to the Executive. Generally speaking, as one result of constitutional division of powers, courts cannot control the action of executive offices unless such acts are ministerial, imposed by law and in- volve no exercise of discretion. A mandamus, however, will lie against an executive officer, even a member of the Cabinet, to compel the perfor- mance of a purely ministerial act. (Kendall vs. United States, 12 Peters 524, 9 L. Ed. 1181). But when the State of Mississippi sought to restrain President Andrew John- son from enforcing the Reconstruc- tion Acts of 1867, alleging unconsti- tutionally, the court refused permis- sion to file the necessary bill on the ground that neither the President, nor Congress, can be restrained in their actions by the judicial depart- ment, although their acts, when per- formed in proper cases, are subject of judicial cognizance (Mississippi vs. Johnson, 4 Wallace 475, 18 L. THE 1937 DOCKE ' l niiiiiinniiiiiiiininmiimiiimiiiiiiimiiiiiiiiiiiiifii Ed. 437). In another of the Recon- struction eases it was said that, in order to invoke judicial action, the rights in danger must be rights of persons or property, not merely po- litical rights (Georgia vs. Stanton, 6 Wallace 50, 18 L. Ed. 721). Preparing for the Courts, of course, have the power to punish for contempt, which power is inherent and may not be abolished although it can be regulated. Where, however, punishment for contempt is of a criminal nature — criminal contempt — the President may exer- cise the power of pardon without in- vading the province of the judiciary. A distinction is made between civil contempt, when the punishment is remedial and for the benefit of a complainant, and criminal contempts when the sentence is punitive and in public interest (Ex parte Grossman, 267 U. S. 87, 69 L. Ed. 527). Creation of offices is a legislative function, but the power of appoint- ment and removal of officials is ex- ecutive in nature and may not be limited by Congress. (Meyers vs. United States, 272 U. S. 52, 71 L. Ed. 160). A careful distinction must be made between removal of execu- tive officials and those whose func- tions are quasi-judicial, and, while also administrative, are created for the purpose of carrying out legisla- tive policy. In the case of adminis- trative commissions, entrusted with discretionary powers and established as agencies of Congress, the latter may place restrictions upon the President’s power of removal. (Hum- phrey’s Executor vs. United States, 295 U. S. 602, 79 L. Ed. 1611). Finally, it has been said that ju- dicial power can be exercised under the Constitution only when a proper case between parties is submitted for judicial determination, and that there is no general veto power in Bar Examination IT is possible for the law student to review for the Bar Examination without supervis- ion, just as it is possible to study law with- out attending law school, but the method is certainly not the most effective. Competent guidance is as essential in review as else- where. FRANK S.

Congress cannot obtain a ju- dicial declaration of the validity of a congressional act by merely con- ferring jurisdiction upon courts in a class of cases unless an actual con- troversy arises for judicial deter- mination (Muskrat vs. L n i t e d States, 219 U. S. 346. 55 L. Ed. 246). Non- judicial functions will not be assumed by courts, but neith- er will courts permit interference with such functions. Not only does the Constitution prohibit diminution of judicial salaries during judges’ continuance in office, but an income tax levied upon judge’s salary under a law passed years following the judge’s appointment was held unau- thorized bv the Constitution as tend- ing to interfere with judicial inde- pendence (Evans vs. Gore, 253 U.S. 245, 64 L. Ed. 887). It is an elementary principle of constitutional law that courts will not pass upon political questions. These are varied and numerous, and lie wholly within the province of the policymaking, the legislative and ex- ecutive departments. Whether or not a government is the legal govern- ment of a state is a political ques- tion (Luther vs. Borden, 7 Howard 1, 12 L. Ed. 581). Whether or not a state has ceased to possess a repub- lican form of government is not sus- ceptible of judicial determination, the question being political in nature (Pacific States Telephone and Tele- graph Company vs. Oregon, 223 U. S. 118. 56 L. Ed. 377). Numer- ous questions affecting foreign rela- tions, such as recognition of foreign governments, are political and there- fore within the province of the ex- ecutive (Oetjen vs. Central Leather Co. 246 U. S. 297, 62 L. Ed. 726). a 1006 Tenth Street, N. W. District 7-5-7-4 This sketch has been deemed ap- propriate because the Docket this year is dedicated to the concept of separation of powers. It is. however, only a sketch and not an exhaustive studv of an increasingly important problem of government and constitu- tional law. If these few lines shall serve as a stimulus to further study and thought, the writer will feel more than amply repaid. iiiiiiiiiiiiiiHiiiiiiiiiMi ■ urn [■] iinniiiinnini THE 1937 DOCKE ' J 0 Hill I Ill in 1 1 ii i ii 1 1 ii i it mu ii ii i it ii MiiiiiiiiimiiiHm 111 mu i iii mi linn i if mi i min mi ilium IIIIIIIH0 TIi m s s you may not know about A.
