X0 3- HIXDIX X5 3 IOO Chancellor ' s Message T HE graduation of the Class of 1939 marks the end of the Seventieth year of National University. Your Alma Mater has reached the Biblical age of three score years and ten. The student body has been, in the main, those who were willing to sacrifice “their hours of ease, their instants of repose, their inns of rest” and the financial fruits of their own toil and labor in order to gratify their ambition to know the law and the reason thereof. Opportunities to gratify such an ambition are being greatly — and it may be reasonably argued, unduly — circumscribed. The back- ground and history of the University, however, and the character, thoroughness and practicability of its courses guarantee that the sphere of its usefulness will not be destroyed and it will survive the present tendency to limit the right or privilege of deserving youth to aspire to practice law. No man knows a great deal, even after a lifetime of intensive study and wide experience, but the Class of 1939 has had a wise guidance from a faculty of lawyers and Judges whose knowledge of the principles of the law is supplemented by the indispensable ex- perience of the courtroom and counsel table in the practical appli- cation of legal principles to the manifold problems of life. Equipped with this training you have the ability to understand and your future in the law lies in your own hands. Apply to the proble ms of the lawyer the same sacrifice and courage you have displayed in attaining your degrees and your success will be assured. With all good wishes, I bid you Godspeed. Leslie C. Garnett 7-1 IXDIPI S5R£foIOr LESLIE C. GARNETT Chancellor Gi D(DI OI3CoRn 0IOr s ' Dean’s JWessage T HE Law School of the National University celebrates this year the seventietli anniversary of its founding, and this makes all the more memorable everything associated with the gradu- ation of the institution’s 1939 class. In the history of the University, the class of 1939 will always stand out because of the period the year marks. I am confident that this class will also be remembered because of the achievements of its members, men and women, in their chosen profession. While the responsibilities of the legal profession have increased with the years, it is equally true that the opportunities are greater for those who are properly equipped. The aim of National University has always been to aid deserving young men and women to enter the ranks of a dignified profession upon the basis of individual merit and adequate prepar- ation. In this mission the institution will continue, and in this spirit I hid the class of 1939 good-bye, with the knowledge, how- ever, that we do not part, hut, rather, enter into a new relationship, that of fellow-alumni and fellow-craftsmen, with an eye single to upholding the best traditions of a great calling and a great insti- tution. Dr. Charles Pergler H I OTDISC X4D6IOX Dr. CHARLES PERGLER Dean of the Law School ft Q(DTDl5CoR JOIOr ;!Tae g ' WT N order to become a great institution a university must have for Jl its leaders men of ability, foresight, and vision, men who are not only adequate to the present need of the school but also to plan for the future. Even though it is housed in no great cathedral, National Uni- versity points with pride to its scholastic advancement during the years. Particularly have great strides been made during the past few years. Founded to provide means for securing a legal education in the Nation’s Capital, the school offers courses for those whose full time is spent in learning the law, as well as for those who are employed. National University is fortunate in the men and women who preside over its destinies. One of whom the Class of 1939 will al- ways remember with affection is John L. Cassin, our Assistant Dean. In the future, thoughts of our Alma Mater will always bring back pleasant memories of Mr. Cassin. The Class of 1939 JOHN L. CASSIN Assistant Dean of the Law School Secretary of the Board of Trustees ' n om national ntoersitg It istoru ATIONAL University this year completes its seventieth year as a graduate Ji institution of learning. It was incorporated by an Act of Congress in June 1869, and from that year when Dr. William B. Wedgewood, its founder, and his associates made it possible to obtain a higher education of professional stand- ing, to this day. National University has forged steadily forward to become one of the country’s leading educational institutions in the professional field. Five presidents of the United States, Grant, Garfield, Hayes, Arthur and Cleveland have acted as Chancellor ex-efficio of the University as an idicia of the caliber of the men who directed the affairs in its formative years. Although instruction was first given in several professional fields, including a department of medicine, the tendency as the years passed was toward the law, and so it is to-day. Law constitutes the predominant branch of the University, but it should not be over ' ooked that the school of Economics and Government, conferring the degrees of AB, BS, BCS and MCS is also a vital factor in the academic branch. Because of its rapid growth and changing conditions it was found necessary to reorganize the University in 1896. A new charter was granted by a special Act of Congress, (129 Stat. L. 194), conferring the power to grant university degrees. The new incorporators were all men holding high and honored positions in the Federal Judicial service. At the death of President Cleveland the Board of Regents abolished the office of Chancellor ex-efficio and elected Arthur McArthur, then a justice on the District of Columbia Supreme Court bench as the first chancellor, and succeeding chancellors in the order of their service have been Samuel F. Miller, Associate Justice of the United States Supreme Court, Richard H. Alvev, Chief Justice of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, Eugene Carusi, LLD.. Charles F. Carusi, LLD., Hay- den Johnson, LLD., Charles S. Hatfield. LLD.. Justice of the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, and the present chancellor is Leslie C. Garnett. LLM., formerly an Assistant Attorney General of the United States and United States Attorney for the District of Columbia. Dr. Charles Pergler, a former Minister to Japan from Czechoslovakia is the Dean of the Law School. The School of Law is one of the largest in the United States, having an enroll- ment of over thirteen hundred students from every state in the Union and many foreign countries whose pre-legal education was received in college and univer- sities throughout the country. Over seven thousand graduates have gone forth to achieve distinction in the legal profession as members of the Bar and Bench in governmental and civil capa- cities and who have otherwise enjoyed unusual standing as successful practitioners. National University stands a monument to the unselfish devotion of those who have guided its destinies through seventy years and made it possible for ambitious students of moderate means to achieve a professional education of the highest standard. Eighteen D(DXOl5(3K IOIOr J ' - vmiiustf O F all its boasts National University has no greater claim to fame than its outstanding Faculty. Included in this dis- tinguished group of jurists are the Chief Justices of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, and the United States Court of Claims; the Presiding Judge of the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals; a majority of the Justices of the United States District Court for the District of Columbia; and many other judges of the Federal and District Bench, past and present. Only in the National Capital could such an array of legal knowledge be gathered, and under such guidance a National gradu- ate slips from the role of student to lawyer. Not to be overlooked are the leaders of the Bar of the District of Columbia serving on the Faculty, many of them Alumni, and each a specialist in his particular field. The University is proud of, and grateful to, the Faculty.

October 23, 185)1 - September 28, 1939 . . . his sun is gone down while it was yet day . . . George Edelin was a son of the District of Columbia. He was born and educated here; here he lived and died. He attended the public schools and pursued his legal studies at Georgetown University. Though his preparation for the professional work to which he then aspired was interrupted by his service as a Sergeant in the United States Marine Corps in the World War, his rise was swift and sure. Those of us who were privileged to know him as George, the friend, knew him for his genuineness and his affectionate interest in his fellows. We of National University who knew him as Professor Edelin are j os- sessed of a deep appreciation for the diligent and schol- arly manner in which he guided us in our quest for ad mission into the profession which lie mastered and loved. His fellow members of the Bar. and his associates in the firm of Peyser, Edelin and Peyser remember the brilliance of his talents in the courtroom and the broad humanism and understanding which flowed from his pro- found knowledge not only of the law but of all the best that has been said and done since the golden age of Classicists. It is not what w r c say about George Edel in which inscribes his name in honor. Rather, his beautiful char- acter, his devotion to the ideals of justice, and the warm memories in the hearts of the many he served — these have everlastingly engraved his name on the roll of good men.

In doing this we hoped to make this chronicle livelier and more representative of University life. It is my wish that the students will find a lasting pleasure in this book and that it will bring pleasant memories to them in years to come. Lawrence W.

Representative X X Forty-three 3 Iiittle t istorji T HE publication of the Year Book of National University’s student body was suspended when the United States entered the World War in 1917. In the fall of 1921, Professor Calvin I. Kephart, then a senior and post-graduate student, conceived the idea of reviving the book and enlisted the cooperation of his friend Thomas E. Rhodes, a fellow-student, now a practicing at- torney in the Southern Building. Other students joined in the plan. A change of senior class officers was necessary before the project could be undertaken and this was effected by vigorous action. Mr. Kephart did not have the time to assume the duties of editor-in-chief and this honor fell on Ralph C. Howard, now with the Civil Ser- vice Commission. The latter then appointed Messrs. Kephart, Rhodes, Marvin F. Bischoll, Otis F. Mohundro, and Tlios. W. Phillips as associate editors. A business staff was also organized. In due time the book of the class of 1922 appeared. It was called Stare Decisis, but after several years the students changed the name to that now used, The Docket. Messrs. Kephart and Rhodes were also active in debating and other student activities. About March or April, 1922, when the for- mer was president of the Miller Debating Society, both were asked to put on the first public debate over the radio at the electric sup- ply store then a few doors south of the law school building on 13th Street. The subject was Daylight Saving. Mr. Kephart upheld the affirmative side and Mr. Rhodes the negative. The unannounced decision was to be found among the hundreds of letters that the proprietors afterward received commenting on the debate.

D. 1939 THE GRAND FACULTY of National University Law School in the District of Columbia aforesaid, upon their oaths, do present: That the Class of 1939, late of National University, aforesaid, on, to wit, the thirteenth day of June in the year of our Lord one thousand nine hundred and thirty- nine, and at the National University aforesaid, after three years of diligent study, tenacity and perseverance, through long hours of eye strain and fatigue, with bene- fit of lectures, end on end, and aided and abetted by one, William Martin, and after receiving aid and assistance through the medium of relaxation by participation in certain extra-curricular activities, to wit. Class Organization, in which Presidents Gallagher, Jamison and McIntosh were leaders over the successive years; a class smoker in 1936, and a dance in that same year, at the Willard Hotel; a Spring For- mal dance held at the Lafayette Hotel; in the following year, after a long and bitterly contested political campaign which lasted well into the winter term; a hard working Docket Staff and various sub-committees worked furiously to complete their assignments during the last year, and as a final “get-together” before the very ser- ious business of the quarterly examinations and the June Bar Examination, the Docket Dance held at the Kennedy Warren Hotel. Under all the aforesaid attending circumstances the said Class of ’39 did take and carry away from and off the pre- mises of said National University, then and there being, certain knowledge and ex- perience which said Class of 1939 was able to glean, under the aforesaid conditions, of the market value of five hundred four dollars and fifty cents, ($304.50), ex- clusive of the value of tools used in said taking, which may or may not have been re- tained by the aforesaid Class, with the intent therewith to arm itself against cer- tain obstacles of the future, namely: the Bar Examination of the said District of Columbia, or the bar examinations of one or more of the several states of these United States; and with the intent to pit such profits as it retained by said taking, against all the world with a view of obtaining further fame and fortune; in the form, force and effect of the Statute passed in t lie year of our Lord one thousand eight hundred and sixty-nine, creating said National University, and in the manner ap- proved and provided by said faculty and trustees of aforesaid University, and with a view to the heritage passed on to said Class by such eminent former Chancellors, as: I residents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland, and with due respect to the seventy long years of earnest endeavor by the past and present faculties, in consideration of the dignity, respect and affection for those halls of learning, where trod, alike, famous and little known alumni of said University, and in the interest of peace and government of these United States of America.

Forty-seven m .£ 3X)IQRSr W IDB= Senior president ' s Message ' tT ' VOTHING is more refreshing and stimulating than accomplishment. Through JL Z. sacrifice we have achieved an objective that enhances that measure of accom- plishment. In most instances the acquisition of a professional status has been somewhat deferred. Circumstances prohibited an earlier realization but the rugged individualism that distinctively identified the founding Fathers is manifestly and inherently perpetuated. We have devoted three useful years pursuing the study of a time honored profession. Unquestionably all of us have increased our stature and broadened our minds through comprehensive study and diversified associations. We now have as a part of us the rudiments and fundamentals of an instrumentality that has and will continue to have a profound influence upon the lives of the people in our respective communities and spheres of activity. If this instrumentality is pro- perly applied untold benefits will result and definite contributions will accrue to society. If it is abused unhappiness and strife will prevail — the Fatherhood of God and the Brotherhood of Man will be violated. The ultimate destiny of our nation, to a large degree, depends upon the legal structure as executed by Lawyers who above all are intimately acquainted with and appreciative of the principles on which this government was founded. The practice and application of the Law requires the utmost discretion and diplomacy. The one great and consuming objective should be Service, for only with this conception can a Lawyer truly fill his righteous place in the scheme of things. Service stripped of materialism and self aggrandizement represents the ideal status. It must be constantly recognized that the Law is a living, growing and elastic media, not frigid and unchangeable. Laws are designed to contribute and must not contri- bute to design. Our comparatively young country is presently undergoing a strenuous and vigorous economic and political renaissance. During this period of adjustment and thereafter, we must particularly endeavor to cultivate common sense which has never failed to respond in a crisis. Our Democratic government offers us a coopera- tive freedom which develops a life of abundant happiness exemplifying the Golden Rule: “Do unto others as you would have them do unto you.” Vigilance, must for- ever be our watchword, and a zealous custody of our fortunate privilege must be maintained so that it can never be said that the American people are living coffins of their dead souls. We must emphasize the greatest good for the greatest number consistently, bearing in mind that Democratic self government finds full expression in an intelligent populace which is permitted to enunciate and invoke freely, without reserve, the cardinal philosophy of equal justice to all under the Law. Let us in- delibly reflect that mutual respect is the necessary requisite for a harmonious exis- tence. We should keep attuned to courageous thinking, tempered with the counsel and guidance of the Ruler of the Universe. To each of you I personally wish for happiness and continued success consistent with your particular aspirations. The tangible evidence of your accomplishment here erases any doubt as to the eventual outcome. I am deeply appreciative of the honor that you have bestowed upon me. As the years move forward it is my fond hope that I will have the frequent opportunity to he of further service to you.

ZIMMERMAN One Hundred Seven M m-Umous M IB- Baccalaureate T ODAY it appears as though a liberal trend indeed is not only creeping, but driving itself into our present legal system. This however, is only the logical result of the interpretations of certain of our intellectuals. By striving for the better, for the higher type of legal expression and application, we as students of the legal profession are reaching the achievements for which we seek in our economic as well as legal philosophy. Any radical demonstration in our democracy is short lived, but its aftermath establishes a trend that cannot he extinguished. Lawyers of tomorrow, it is this liber- al thought indeed that we should acknowledge, must control, keep alive. Development and progress comes by positive and intelligent action which is necessarily methodic and steadfast in its nature. Impulsive thought, radical change, despotic rule, the iron hand of the dictators offer no solution to our problems! New ideas cannot run rampant in our present system, but they must he allowed a place to mature and prove themselves. By tempering liberal influ- ence with the basic spirit of the law and by tempering the basic fundamentals of law with liberal thought, we may achieve definite progress so that we as individuals and united as a nation, may bet- ter this world for living for ourselves and those about us.

Eastman, Historian T HE Junior Class is at a disadvantage in tins, the seventieth year of our school. We can neither sav how proud we are to be graduating, nor how proud we are to be instituting our study of law in such a memorable year. We are, however, deeply appreciative of our good fortune in being students at a school with such a long and illustrious record in furthering the aims and amibtions of those who devote their nights to the law. During the first week of the school year we were inexpressibly shocked and grieved by the sudden death of George Edelin, under whom we had studied Nego- tiable Instruments, and were to study Real Property. At about the time when the strangeness of different studies, different instruc- tors, and a different class room was being dissipated by the sight of Bill Martin peddling briefs in the lower hall, we suddenly realized that Common Law Pleading and Real Property were no longer future contingent estates, but had vested, and that if their quantum was measured bv the time necessary to master them, we were seised of freehold estates for life. In October, Professor Campbell took ov er with great success Professor Edelin’s course in Real Property. We initiate the good ones, Campbell this year. Ford last year. Just after the Christmas holidays Judge Garrett graciously presented the class with a gavel, made from the wood of one of the historic cedars bordering the drive at the Hermitage, home of Andrew Jackson. o FIRST TERM DICTA Syme: “Each partner presumed that each other partner was a liar and a thief, and all these presumptions were probably correct.” Barse: “How long are you guys going to keep on not reading the text?” Garrett: “When Adam was expelled from the Garden of Eden, he was a physical degenerate, a mental prostitute, and a spiritual wreck.” Campbell: “And now, before we go to Waste — ” o FIRST TERM LEARNING Every partner is an agent in estates pur autre vie By the Statute of Enrollments and the writ of praecipe.

One Hundred Thirteen KIDIOJR5 junior dlass president’s JWessage F ELLOW classmates, we, as members of the Class of 1940, have completed two- thirds of our journey on the highway of legal learning. We have facing us one more year of study after which we will be eligible for our examinations for admission to the Bar. Ever since the day we started in National University, the goal of each and every one of us has been the successful completion of our law studies whereby we can enter into the profession of our choosing. We have all known the effort, hardship and sacrifice that we have had to make the last two years to achieve our present status. We have always been mindful that if we succeed our success depends upon ourselves. If we fail, we have only our individual selves to blame. The road lies ahead of us and we alone can travel that road. As your president and bv virtue of that office, I wish to congratulate the Class of 1939 for this wonderful book and to extend on behalf of the Class of 1940 our greetings to the faculty of National University, especially to the Honorable Judge Finis Garrett for his presentation of a Gavel that was made from a tree located on the “Hermitage”, the home of that great warrior and statesman, Andrew Jackson. This gift shall be given to the University and become part of its tradition. As we approach our senior year our incentive for carrying on is furnished us by the great men who have graduated from this school and have made themselves famous in the practice of the laws. If we succeed and gain honors in later life, they will reflect upon our Alma Mater and to its credit, and if we bring disgrace upon ourselves, we bring disgrace upon this institution. I feel that I express the wish of each and every member of this class that success with honor and integrity will be the culmination of our efforts. I wish to thank each and every one of you for your cooperation in our social and financial activities, because our finances are in excellent shape, and we face our senior year with the greatest of faith in the future. Also, I wish each of you good luck and God speed in all vour efforts. Sincerely, Wilson M. Matthews One Hundred Fourteen Kimons WILSON M.

Keith Hafer, Historian I T is with trepidation that the Historian attempts this account, for we have known each other only eight months. These months, however, have been fertile ones in many ways, and we who embarked on tbe great sea of Law in September have now weathered the first of many storms, and thereby earned our able-bodied papers. The Class of ’41 started off on an active foot. The candidates for class office were many, the nominations were hotly contested, and the voting was heavy; and to the ringing of campaign bells and the whirr of paper campaign platforms through the air our class officers were elected. George K. McMullan rode to our highest office on a platform which promised the most active class since 1 869 ; and we are glad to hold “Mac” to his platform, for in the seventieth year of the National Uni- versity Law School it is fitting that we make an effort to commemorate this anniver- sary through enlarged and unified student activity. The first meeting of the class officers was held to appoint special committees and committee members ; and shortly thereafter to draw up a constitution, which was put to a vote before the class on Friday, January 13 and which, despite the date, was ratified with surprisingly few dissentions. The inaugural dance of the class was held on January twenty-first at the Na- tional Press Club. Sydney’s Hotel Mayflower orchestra shelled the corn for those of us who were inclined to “jitter”, while a staff of immaculate waiters gave able assistance to all and sundry embryonic attorneys desiring experience at the bar. This, then, brings to a brief close the summary history of the class to date ; but bear your gavels in hand and y our caps and gowns at fingers touch for a Master’s ticket awaits us all in a brief two years before the mast of jurisprudence.

In our quest of legal knowledge, each one of us is conscious of the distinct advantages and fine opportunities offered by this University that we have selected to become our Alma Mater. May we as a class, in some way, contribute to the archives and history of this institution that will per- petuate its glory. Our greatest fortune, as students of the law at National Univer- sity, lies in the staff of fine men who labor patiently to assist us in our undertaking. The confidence that we have in the power and wisdom of these learned men causes us to humbly relv upon their guidance and assistance throughout our three years of study. For their exceedingly kind and sympathetic effort to enlighten our eager minds upon the reasons of the law, we are ever grateful. As a class, let us never overlook the advantages of our own association. While the legal profession is a noble one, friendship is the height of perfection in society. As we meet here in our class rooms throughout the ensuing two years, may each of us ever bear in mind that, though we master the science of law, unless we cultivate the friendship of fellow students, our time will have been far less than well spent. The degrees of success in forming favorable acquaintances in this fine group during our association as a class will be a scale on which future achievements of each stu- dent can be measured. May we all labor and strive to conduct ourselves in such a way that we form lasting ties of friendship with members of our class, as well as to qualify ourselves to uphold the standards of a historically noble profession. As we end our first successful year in National University, our task has just begun. It will be our earnest endeavor to carry on throughout the next two years and make the Class of 1941 the greatest in the history of our school. In order to fully deserve the praise awarded us this year for hearty cooperation and fine class spirit, may we all meet again next term with renewed effort to push on and have an even more successful year. For the mutual benefit of all, let us strive to maintain the pleasant and friendly atmosphere that has been ever present throughout this first year. Sincerely, Geo. K.

Francis Martin Presiding Justice of the Appellate Division of the Supreme Court of the state of New 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 experience 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 at- tor neys. 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 dis- couraging. 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. 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, how- ever, 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 carefully prepared. The courts pose- mnDayieds One Hundred Forty-five 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 vacil- lating can succeed at the Bar. In the law, more than in any other profession, 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 vour 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 op- pression 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 foundation 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 wav in our industrial, social and political structure a vigorous and fearless Bar will reassume the great role played bv 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.” PQ56 ' 6jeTOOH6e5 One H undrcd Forly-six JOSE M.

Due to its rapid expansion it developed into the present school of Eco- nomics and Government. It was only fitting that in Washington, there should be a university to pre- pare students for the domestic and foreign service of the various branches of the government. Instruction in Economics, History, Sociology, International Relations, and Political Science supply a foundation and background in social sciences to law students and to those who have already been admitted to the Bar. It is the aim of this Department of National University to meet the growing demand for special- ized training in Economics and Government, and to supplement the studies offered in the law school for a broader and wider education and background. Prior to 1939 , there had been no permanent student organization in the Eco- nomics and Government school. Various attempts had been tried unsuccessfully to organize student activities. Due to the increasing interest of the students, and with the assistance and approval of the faculty, the Student Forum was inaugurated in January, 1939. We hope by the establishment of this organization to further and advance social and scholastic relations not only among students, but the faculty as well. We would like to build up the “E and G” school not only in active membership, but also in more diversified fields of study; to add to the school spirit by the es- tablishment of social organizations ; and to make contributions to the successful con- tinuance of the school by our alumni support. W e are proud to be the inaugurators of this new organization; in the future we hope it will continue even more successfully than it began. Seiko Nishio Historian One Hundred Fifty-three eqoYXxpiqg 16 69 19 39 Bean’s Message T HE Class of 1939 is now on the threshold of graduation. With formal examinations successfully completed, another and equally important phase of work commences. The training which you have received was made available, almost without exception, by your own efforts and most of you had already “gone to school to men and events” before beginning your studies. In our day the struggle to survive is more intense. To achieve the success all men crave, demands in full measure determination and self-sacrifice. I sincerely believe that the characteristics of courage and energy which have led you thus far, will, in the years to come, point your way to success and happiness. Congratulations — Eugene Carusi One Hundred Fifty-four ecopocDios p eoieRO(iKinG EUGENE CARUSI Dean of the School of Economics Government eqopocpiqg T oveuixpeocy presidents Message T HE increase in the powers and duties of government creates a corresponding need for a broad understanding of its operation. The newly created Student Forum was founded to serve as a discussion group in the problems of econom- ics and political science. Members of the Students Forum are drawn from the four corners of the eartli impelled by a variety of motives which defy enumeration. We gathered together, a motley heterogeneous band, and undertook an organization bound together by close association, scholastic endeavor, and close social and fraternal relations. What was once a group of individuals, strange to each other, is now a solidified body of mature men and women, imbued with common ideals and a better understanding of the Economic and Political problems that confront us today. But, in spite of the brilliant prospects of fame, success and wealth held out to us by the future, we all experience a certain sorrow at the realization that this unity of purpose and spirit, achieved at so great an expenditure of time and hard work will end for some of us, while for others the end will be prolonged only a few years. We all realize that the ties formed here are by no means severed when our status is changed from that of student to alumnus. The members of the Forum will disperse here and there in this man’s world and become individuals again. The spirit of the Forum alone will remain to supply the memory of each student with pleasant recollections and to encourage the students who follow to achieve greater success in their chosen fields. I should like to take this opportunity to thank the Docket Staff for making our participation in the Docket possible this year, and I feel quite sure that this marks the beginning of a long period of business and social friendship between the officers of the Docket, the members of the Law School, and the School of Economics and Government. May the Students’ Forum continue its participation in the Docket for many years to come. I appreciate the honor of being elected the president of the Students Forum, which is the first organization of its kind in the School of Economics and Government. I am grateful to those who have so generously given their time and efforts in making possible its organization, and to the officers for their cooperation and untiring efforts in helping to create a permanent, well-organized body to re- present the School of Economics and Government.

The Club then became a member of the Local Advisory Board for the Masonic Clubs of the District of Columbia. The oldest official record that has been called to our attention of the approval of Masonic Clubs was in the incorporation of the Free Masons Club bv the Common- wealth of Pennsylvania in September, 1876, at Philadelphia. The various clubs later met in April 1 90.5, at which meeting resolutions were unanimously adopted, organ- izing the National League of Masonic Clubs. The national organization was incor- porated in the District of Columbia on September 15, 1922. From a membership of 1,500 when the resolutions for a national organization were adopted, the National League has grown until today there arc about 555 clubs with a total membership of more than 250,000, and has become international in aspect, having clubs located not only in the United States, but in the Philippine Islands, Canal Zone, Haiti, Honduras, Canada, and China. The Club at National University occupies a most unique position among the clubs in Washington. Every Master Mason is eligible for membership in the club. Those who find their duties of school so confining as to prevent their attendance at Lodge can find the same high principles of the fraternity fostered and developed by the Club. To those Masons whose Lodge Membership is maintained outside the Dis- trict of Columbia, the Club offers Masonic fellowship and brotherhood. The Club has as its purpose the cultivation of a finer appreciation of the value of brotherhood among a select group of men who have a common intent, a common purpose and a common goal, and who are already bound by the obligations of a Master Mason.

That was in 1919, and the following year, when there were less than ten women enrolled, the Cy Pres Club was founded. In 1921, inspired by the belief that “Cy Pres” was too indefinite the members changed the name of the club “Queen’s Bench” and as such functioned for eleven months. The express reason is not recorded but in 1931 the original name was restored, and in order to perpetuate that name, the Cy Pres Club was incorporated in May, 1932. In this seventieth year of National University’s life, ten per cent of the student body are women. Twice in its history, in 1930 and in 1936, the Club petitioned for appoint- ment of a woman on the faculty without success. However, so large was the enroll- ment of women this year that the Cy Pres Club sponsored a petition to the Board of Trustees for the appointment of a Dean of Women. Cy Pres — “The nearest thing” — to a bar association that the law school affords its women members, forsters the spirit of “social improvement and enjoyment, educa- tional advancement and promotion of good fellowship.” g OFFICERS Ruth Marvick President Juanita Harris Vice-President Marguerite McDowell Secretary Harriet G.

Originating with a charter membership of six, it has truly be- come national in scope. There are now twenty-four active and ten alumni chapters throughout the United States from Maryland and the District of Columbia to California, and from Michigan to Alabama. Mu Chapter was chartered in March, 1921, at National University. Each succeeding year, new members have come, seeking for knowledge of the Law, later to depart instilled with the Law and the ideals for which our Fraternity stands. Thus it is this year. Thus it will be in future years. As a link to this ever-growing chain of Mu Chapter’s history, this year has been one for which it’s officers and members have good reason to feel justly proud. Throughout the year smokers and pledge meetings were held, to promote fellowship and indulge in conviviality. Mu Chapter was represented by Brothers Culver Chamberlain and James W. Dickey, at the twenty-fourth annual convention held in Baltimore, December 29 — 31, 1938. Brothers Rowland F. Kirks, Homer C. Rose, and Charles R. Hodges were initiated into the Fraternity at the convention initiation ceremony. Mu Chapter held it’s initiation ceremony, banquet and dance in the Washing- ton Hotel on February 15, 1939. At that time thirty-five new members, and one honorary member, Howard S. Leroy, Professor of Radio Law and Air Law, of the graduate school, were initiated. This year is the Silver Anniversary of Sigma Delta Kappa’s founding. In these twenty-five years, over nine thousand men have been pledged to the ideals of it’s founders, that are embodied in it’s ritual. It is therefore fitting that we, the members of Mu Chapter, should record on these pages, our tribute to the founders of Sigma Delta Kappa, and our pledge to maintain their ideals of Christian character and scholarship, thereby to become more learned in the Law, and honored members of this ancient and honorable profession.

The past two years have added largely to its membership and, while still holding to its original purpose, it now takes an active part in the affairs of the student body in general, through the inter- fraternity council and class organizations. Recently assurances have been received that its petition to become affiliated with a large National legal fraternity will be welcomed. In this event Beta Lambda Sigma is to be known as the Charles Evans Hughes Senate, personal permission for this honor already having been granted by the present Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

WALKER e b r mu Two Hundred Nineteen i a e gT7 - gupha Beta phi Xjegal Pratemitu J If S regards tlie 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 hare 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 exact- ing conditions and circumstances as do the majority of those attending National University 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 else- where. 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, beneficial 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 rapidly changing concepts of government and law ; we have realized the growing importance of allie d 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 extemporaneously 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 encour- age 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 con- tinue to encourage a lively discussion of moot questions, our annual competitive de- bates and essay contests which tend to develop a higher degree of legal ability; we will continue to conduct a moderate program of social events and seasonal athletic activities, 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 organization 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 brotherhood.

As a result of these discussions, a group, comprising members of the several fraternities met at the Raleigh Hotel to deliberate on this question, and in due course a constitution creating the Inter-Frater- nity Council of National University was drawn up and submitted and, on the tenth day of February, was adopted by the following fraternities: Alpha Beta Phi Sigma Delta Kappa Phi Beta Gamma Beta Lambda Sigma The constitution provides that the council consist of two representatives from each fraternity, the present representatives being: Alpha Rata Phi Abe Itasnik Beta Lambda Sigma J. Patrick Gallagher Phi Beta Gamma Ralph Edgar Daugherty Sigma Delta Kappa Rowland Kirks Officers of the council, elected to serve for the first year of its existence were : President Nathaniel Massie Turnbull Phi Beta Gamma Vice-President P. Baxter Davis Beta Lambda Sigma Secretar 1 James William Dickey Sigma Delta Kappa Treasurer Simon Sherman Alpha Beta Phi In order to perpetuate the council and to keep politics at the minimum, the several offices will rotate among the participating fraternity groups as prescribed in the constitution. Aside from promoting the mutual interest of its component societies, the In- ter-Fraternity Council is pledged to further the best interests of the University it- self, and foster those ideals of legal training foremost in American tradition.

INTERNA TIONAL ) irT " APPA BETA PI Legal Sorority was founded on December 15, 1908, at Kent 111 College of Law, Chicago, Illinois, the first legal sorority for women. The fundamental idea of the Founders of the Sorority was to promote a high- er professional standard among women studying and practicing law, by means of educational and social enjoyments.” The international success achieved by the sorority is evidence of the fact that the high and worth} 7 aims of the Founders have been maintained and fostered, Kappa Beta Pi being the first Greek letter organization to establish a chapter in a foreign land. Today there are forty-six student chapters in this country and abroad, as well as eight alumnae chapters. Kappa membership extends to many countries of Europe including France, England and Germany, and around the globe to China, South Africa and Brazil. Oinicron Chapter at National University was established on May 3, 1921, and since that date its membership has steadily increased until Omicron has become the largest student chapter in the Sorority. The chapter in conjunction with the Univer- sity, supports three scholarships each year in order to aid ambitious young women who are financially unable to pursue the study of law. Omicron chapter is forever mindful of the objectives of the sorority, attempting to build lasting friendships among women lawyers and to provide the incentive for its members to seek higher goals in the legal profession. Among the outstanding Kappas in the United States are the following: Judge Florence E. Allen, of the Federal Circuit Court of Appeals of the Sixth District; Genevieve Cline, Judge of the United States Customs Court; Ellen K. Ready, Judge of the Municipal Court of District of Columbia; Sarah Tilghman Hughes, Judge of the Circuit Court of Dallas, Texas; Jesse Sumner, Congresswoman from Illinois, and Phyllis M. Kelly, one of the founders of the Sorority and former Judge of the Probate Court of Cook County, Chicago.

SPRING- Two Hundred Fifty-eight NEEDS ITS LAWYERS • Conflicting rights, with which the law yer deals, vary only as does human nature. One hundred and eighty -five years ago, before this nation was horn, these problems were answered by lawyers. 1. The effect of the statute of frauds. 2. The admissibility of deeds in evidence. 3. Admissibility of copies of register of births and deaths. 4. Partition of title. 5. Construction of wilts. 6. Depositions in former causes. 7. Attachment of consignment sale. 8. Private memorandum book as evidence. 9. Questions of statutory construction. Today ihe general practitioner has much the same tvpe of question. One hundred and eighty-five years from now, lliese same questions will be answered by the lawyers of that day. This nation, any nation, needs its lawyers, has needed lawyers, and will need lawyers whatever modifications take place in its philosophy of government. These questions are in the first ten cases reported in Vol. 1 L. ed., col- lected from pre-Revolutionary sources by A. J. Dallas, the first U. S. Su- preme Court Reporter, and by him incorporated in his first volume of reports. From that day to this U. S. Supreme Court Reports have been the source of much help on those questions of most interest to lawyers. Their inclusion in eighty-two compact volumes with valuable Co-op annotations and the famous Roses Notes makes L. ed. the outstanding set of reports of the day.

But it so happens that H. B. Moulton, or Judge Hozea B. Moulton, as we love to call him — graduated nine years before Mr. Freeh, and is still with us today, and two years ago at- tended the banquet of the alumni Association of the University. Not only has Judge Moulton the distinction of being the only survivor of the first graduat- ing class of the National University Law School and its oldest graduate, hut he is also probably the only survivor of the great Arsenal catastrophe of June 17, 1861. Judge Moulton, the lone survivor of this ex- plosion, was born in Concord, N. H., June 28, 18-13, and early joined the Union Army with his two brothers. He was twice wounded before reaching Gettysburg, where he was shot in the breast and was dis- charged from the Army by President Lincoln. He was later assigned to the posi- tion of Chief Clerk at the arsenal, where he was serving at the time of the ex- plosion. His father fought in the War of 1812-15, and his grandfather in the American Revolution. The Law School, when Judge Moulton attended, was at Fifth and E streets, and here it remained throughout 1873.” Tzvo Hundred Sixty-six cknoiHlcdpents T HE publication of a year book is a most intricate, delicate and technical job requiring an expert knowledge of the graphic arts in all its phases. No one person can have all these qualifications, or do all the work necessary to the completion of this task. Therefore, I want to mention the names of some of those individuals whose labors have played a large part in the composition of the 1939 Docket. First, thanks are due Karl L. Wilson who spent many hours of his valuable time assisting the Editor in the compilation of this publication. Except for his splendid cooperation it would not have been possible to develop the theme portrayed throughout this entire book. This theme is carried out by means of his excellent art work. Also, thanks to his two assistants, George F. Vaia and Aubrey P. Windham. Unless one has had the actual experience, it is difficult to realize the important role played by the engraver and the photographer. They must be persons in whom the Editor can place the utmost faith and confidence. The 1939 Docket has been for- tunate in having as an engraver one who has all these requisites and one who was most efficient in meeting all engraving problems. Likewise, our photographer merits similar praise. I want to sincerely and heartily thank Mr. .lack Gold of the Col- legiate Publishing Company and Miss Keebler of the Buckingham Studio for their earnest and tireless efforts in cooperating with the Editor. No one person worked more faithfully and diligently than the “Big Collec- tor,” Griffin T. Garnett. Griff and his group of capable assistants took complete charge of all advertising as well as the sale and distribution of the books. For their efforts, they have to their credit the greatest success in this regard in the history of the Docket. “Thanks a Million” Griff, it’s been a pleasure working with you. Mention should be made of the fine work of Van Beuren Wright DeVries and his full Literary Staff — Miss Burmah Miller, Miss Genevieve Baugh and Miss Louise O ' Neill — for their efforts on the biographical and entire literary composition of this annual. To Miss Ida Seltzer, Miss Irene Berenter and Miss E. Margaret Lamoreaux go the Editor’s thanks for their secretarial work, and to Sam Perkins an “orchid” for the Snap Shot Section of this book. Every member of the Staff has done his part as has our president, John Luther McIntosh, Jr., and the other class officers. The whole Senior body has truly played a large part in the success of the 1939 Docket for without their cooperation this book could not have been published. The Editor and his immediate assistants, Francis G. Knight and John R. Garner will return next year to aid the Class of TO in every way possible. That they receive as much pleasure from their work as did the 1939 Staff, is the wish of Lawrence W.
