Text from Pages 1 - 264 of the 1940 volume:

Kcc G|x Libns No matter what else you are doing, From cradle days through to the end. You’re writing your life’s secret story — Each night sees another page penned, Each month ends a thirty-page chapter, Each year means the end of a part, And never an act is misstated, Nor ever one wish of the heart. Each day when you wake, the book opens, Revealing a page clean and v hite, What thoughts and what words and what doings Will cover its surface by night? God leaves that to you — you’re the writer, And never one word shall grow dim, Till someday you wr ' te the word “Finis”, And give back your life book to Him. — Wallace Dunbar Vincent.

We are eager to reflect the memoirs of school days upon the mirror of Time and to fondle the thoughts of the Past when we shall wear our crowns of gray. In an earnest endeavor to preserve those events at National for future dreams and to portray to the soul of old Age the tender memories of Youth when we studied law, we, the Staff of the An- nual, present to our Classmates this issue, The Docket for 1940, and whatever interest it might include. By such means our dear friends will never leave 11 s, though we be parted by a chain of Years, but will be with us until we pass o’er the sea into the sanctuary of Eternal Sleep. Gordon B. Knight Ediior-in-Chief Content ADMINISTRATION FACULTY DOCKET STAFF SENIORS JUNIORS FRESHMEN POST GRADS SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS GOVERNMENT PHOTOGRAPHS ORGANIZATIONS ACTIVITIES FRATERNITIES SORORITIES FEATURES QQe Dedicate ow often, in our consideration of the law of contracts, have we learned that the basic requirement of a good and valua- ble consideration is amply fulfilled by the term “love and affection” ? Flowing out of the oldest and greatest form of contract, that of Matrimony, the consideration of love and affection provides the inspiration for this book. Without the germ of ambition, the desire to do worthwhile things, firmly implanted in our makeup as we were first sent toddling off to grade school, we could never have reached our coveted goal. Through the years of high school and later into the whirl of the struggle for advancement in the world of business and gov- ernment, the spark of ambition has remained alive because it had its origin in the precepts laid before us in early life. In the hope, therefore, that whatever success we may have thus far attained or which may be ours in the future, may in a small measure serve to justify the hopes, prayers and ambitions which have followed us through childhood, school and university, we lovingly DEDICATE the Docket for 1940 — to Our Mothers and Fathers G}t ponor Finis Garrett,, presiding Judge of the Court of Customs and Patent Appeals, gentleman and scholar. His wealth of knowledge, his comprehensive grasp of the principles of jurisprudence make him an instructor who teaches not only the law, but the underlying reasons therefor. The Senior Class takes pride and pleasure in thus honoring him. CQt ipau Tribute x ✓ ✓ and express our appreciation of William F. Martin, Attor- ney, compiler of briefs, monitor and friend. Our class motto could very well be “When in doubt, consult Martin”. His ready counsel, his sage and salty philosophy have endeared him to us all. We here- by proclaim him the only honorary member of the class of 1940. JVfrmmfetratum T iie Docket is appropriately dedicated to your Fathers and Mothers — at once a symbol of pride and devotion — repre- senting for the Class of 1940 a memorial of three years’ arduous labor and fine accomplishment. In the class room at National University, you have learned the priceless lesson that in the Law there is no place for the shirker, and your work here is an evidence that you realize that unceasing labor is the key to the mastery of Law. As you have honored your Fathers and Mothers by this de- votion and sacrifice here, so I venture to predict that you will honor your Alma Mater in the coming years in the further pro- secution of the study and the practice of the Law. We say goodbye to you as students, but we hail you as fellow marchers in the line of your profession. We wish for you a full measure of achievement: we watch your careers with jealous pride and we welcome the opportunity to aid you in every way in your journey to success. Leslie C. Garnett LESLIE C. GARNETT Chancellor A D Dir i56R ior edication of the Docket to Fathers and Mothers in its novelty is a ref resiling gesture. Too much may be made, and prob- ably is made, of differences between generations, and the action of the class in this respect is evidence of the fact that its members realize that whatever may be the differences between generations, there is also inevitable continuity of labor, striving, and effort, or, to express the thought differently, that it is a wise generation which realizes that it must build upon the foundations established by its predecessors. The thought applies to public affairs, and to act upon it means to work for progress without undue disturbances of the body politic. It applies, also, to institutional traditions. Genera- tions of law students have graduated from National University, and they have been a credit to the school as well as the profession. Those graduating now, and in the future, are entrusted with carry- ing on a fine tradition. In this, and for their career in the profes- sion, they have the best wishes of all those who have tried to aid them to become worthy members of a great profession, and unselfish servants of the country. Charles Pergler [:Ki irasc Rooior Dr. CHARLES PERGLER Dean of the Law School B p di r i5 3R 9ior I n observing the careers of the successful lawyers of the Bar of this District, I have become convinced that the primary reason therefor is “industry.” Thorough study and training are the preliminaries; constant application and sincere effort, the necessary elements toward the desired end. It follows, therefore, that hard work is the corollary to scholastic attainment. Pecuniary gain is the lawful reward, but public recognition and acclaim also the goal each should strive to attain. John L. Cassin JOHN L. CASSIN Assistant Dean of the Law School Secretary of the Board of Trustees HP IDISPP OIOP National Oniucrsitu ioistoru -|r v ational University tliis year completes its seventy-first year as a graduate J[ 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 standing, 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-officio of the University as an indicia 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 overlooked that the school of Economics and Government, conferring the degrees of A.B., B.S., B.C.S. and M.C.S. is also a vital factor in the academic branch. Because of its rapid growtli 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-officio 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. Alvey, Chief Justice of the District of Columbia Court of Appeals, Eugene Carusi, LLD., Hayden Johnson, LED., 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 As- sistant 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 enrollment of over thirteen hundred students from every state in the Union and many foreign countries whose pre-legal education was received in colleges and uni- versities throughout the country. National University stands a monument to the unselfish devotion of those who have guided its destinies through seventy-one years and made it possible for ambitious students of moderate means to achieve a professional education of the highest standard. i rxi ir i3 3i 5ior 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 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 Capitol could such an array of legal knowledge be gathered, and under such guidance a National graduate slips from the role of student to lawyer. Not to be overlooked are the leaders of the Bar of the Dis- trict 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. GEORGE P. BARSE, LL.D.

It is the hope of the staff that these endeavors have not been in vain and that the Docket for 1940 will serve as a memento, in pictorial form, of our lives while at National. In keeping with the theme and dedication of this book, may I say that whatever por- tion of it might have been by my own personal endeavor, I do dedicate that part to my dear Father and in memory of my dear Mother.

Words are not adequate or space available to express my heartfelt appreciation. To the Business Staff which has successfully assured the financial status of this Docket and to you fellow students whose cooperation has made this yearbook a reality, I offer my sincere thanks and extend to you every good wish for future success, remembering with you in no small measure that we are all indebted to our parents, to whom we respectfully dedicate this, OUR DOCKET.

As we now step forward to join the milling throng and take our places in our chosen profession, let us reserve a niche in our Hall of Memories wherein we can occasionally review the hours spent in study and struggle for achievement during these years. That the Docket will, in some measure, serve to keep alive the memory of those associations, friendships and fellowship, is our earnest hope. Earl J. Cox Associate Editor EARL J.

We believe that as the majority of the student body is employed that this is the manner in which they would want it treated. We have had problems to solve and difficulties to surmount and each time we found willing helpers. You have shown faith in the staff and us by honoring us with our positions and we sincerely hope that we have not dissappointed you. When you read these pages and note our mistakes and failures, please know that they are mistakes of the “head” and not of the “heart” — we have tried — believing that “It is better to have run and lost than never to have run at all.” On behalf of our staff we wish to thank the faculty, the students and friends for their continued support and cooperation. Gordon B. Knight, Editor-in-Chief Richard F. Kitterman, Business Manager o THE EDITOR’S NIGHTMARE by THOMAS W. EASTMAN — Feature Editor — No Senior pictures taken, and it’s February two. The staff have all forsaken Their work for bar review. The quips which were completed And typed in final form Must have ten words deleted From each, for uniform Must be all finished pages. The votes must be all checked To see who’s “Queen”. The cages Of all the CURS are wrecked; And Yellow Dogs are yelping Their moonward doleful moan. Shapiro needs some helping, For no one man alone Can handle all the details That simply must be met, Or else the Docket Ball fails And a deficit we get. And Haynes is down with measles, And Stockton has the mumps. And Lamoreaux has sprained her toe, And can’t put on her pumps. The judges’ invitations By mistake went to Peru. Dick’s visiting relations For a month, in Timbuctu. Virginia’s gone to Deadwood To buy an Easter hat. She says it does her head good To buy her hats like that. I cannot find my pants and shoes, The boss I’d better call. WHATEVER made me madly choose To take this job last Fall? The alarm clock’s bell! Where can I be? No words can tell the joy to me To find I’ve dreamed it all! enters Senior Glass lojstoru T he Senior Class as they approach graduation are in much the same position as one climbing a hill three years long, and suffering the same degree of fatigue. We can look back only over our collective shoulders as we must push along through May of 1940. In looking back, we have pleasant memories of our Freshman year when our next seat neighbor was just another plodder whom we knew not by name. In our Junior year, we were welded into a whole, learning to unite on problems both social and academic and just beginning to comprehend that some day we might be graduates. It is regrettable, but true that it has taken our Senior year to bring us to the proper acquaintance of one another and the whole class, and the high light of our social relations seems to have been brought to its climax in the Docket Dance of 1940 held at Almas Temple early in February. Scholastically we have suffered the usual casualties in pass- ing this way, but we are proud of our association during the past three years and look forward with ambitions that we may carry on in the traditions of those who have gone before.

During the years in School, our class has been aided by the desire of each to work for the good of all, by the spirit of true brotherhood in the law, and by in- dividual zeal in preparing for a noble profession. These attributes have enabled us to leave landmarks of our endeavor. In our first term, review briefs for examinations were initiated; later the Docket fund established. We have introdued the Miss Attorney Contest, The Queen ' s Ball, “Midnight Oil”, the school newspaper, and the Apex Honor Society, in this, our last year together. Our major enterprise, the Docket of 1940, is its own best witness as to its worth. Gordon Knight, Editor-in-Chief, and his loyal staff, through their untiring energy and initiative have produced not only this splendid Docket , but have been largely responsible for our new activities. Few days now remain for us as Seniors. We must leave classmates and school to make our mark in the world. That mark is not to achieve personal success alone, but to give leadership, wise counsel, and faithful service to mankind through the best principles of our profession. Knowing you will succeed in this purpose, I wish you good luck, good health, and happiness for every day of the future. George W. Carter President, Senior Class ’40 ml m saoioftsr m ■IB- GEORGE W.

The RFC will lose one of its best accountants when Allan returns to Salt Lake City to practice law. We wish him the best of luck and we will drop in for last minute legal advice on our way to Reno. WALLACE BRYANT AGNEW Waterloo, Iowa B A 2 Just a long, lean, lanky, good-natured drink of water who claims he is something of a horseman, but judging from the stories we’ve heard, he has much in common with a certain past Prince of Wales. We don’t know whether he learned to ride at the University of Cincinnati or George Wash- ington University. However, it’s a safe bet that his Iowa clients will be so numerous he’ll have no need of transportation there. BERNARD ALTMAN Perth Amboy, New Jersey “Bernie”, a big husky blonde from New Jersey, slipped into Washington in 1936 with hopes of be- coming famous on the gridiron at George Wash- ington University. After one year “Bernie” de- cided that the study of Bracton, Coke and the original twelve tables would be more interesting. In 1937 National University found this ambitious neophite in the front row and he’s been a “front rower” ever since. Between the ladies and the law, “Bernie’s” time is well utilized at the Federal Housing Administration. FERN ALLEN ARNOLD Wardensville, West Virginia Who said National has no school-belle? Fern, with her dark eyes, peaches and cream complex ion is our own Scarlett O’Hara, and being a Secretary in Accounts and Deposits of Treasury Depart- ment fitted her ably to be a dues-eollecting mem- ber of the Membership Committee. Before enter- ing National she attended San Jose (California) State College. Fifty-five JAMES CHAPMAN ARNOLD San Diego, California From the land of “unusual weather” came “Jim” with his ready smile to give National University a better and more pleasant atmosphere. He’s a widely traveled young man but really pre- fers to be in California with a good boat in which to navigate the blue waters of the vast Pacific. He has attended San Diego State College, the Univer- sity of Illinois and George Washington Univer- sity but likes “old National” best. ARTHUR FOX ARRINGTON Monticello, Mississippi 1 as sub ! When someone rose behind you to recite with a slow, lazy drawl, you knew it was the Fox. But once he got started, legal pearls of wisdom flowed forth as though from the lips of a Webster or Munter. Fox swivel-hipped through “Ole Miss,” emerging triumphant with an A.B. securely tucked away, only to end up here in Police Court as Bailiff. Order in the Court! MARCELO PINIERA ASUNCION Philippine Islands Morris , the little man with the long cigar, is employed at the Treasury, and attended South- eastern University before coming to National. One of the faithful ‘rear guard”, he nevertheless manages to stay to the end of each lecture. “Morris” is as yet unmarried, but many find time to win and woo a wife, while flying between Wash- ington and the Philippines. He intends to practice law in both jurisdictions. J. EDWIN DWIGHT AVERY Greenfield, Indiana 2 A K “Eddie, the young one” (suave, well-groomed) will begin the practice of his chosen profession in his native Hoosierland, equipped with powers of persuasion as well as a full knowledge of the law, which is a great advantage, “.fudge”, in addressing a jury. Executive Committee 1938-39 and Docket Staff 1940, “Eddie” served faithfully and well. He was instrumental in rounding up Seniors for pictures and active in Sigma Delta Kappa. Thanks a million and the best of luck. Yellow Dog , 1940. mwmBm 1 S DioRs Fifty-six WESLEY BALDWIN Miami, Florida Little can be said of “Wes” that is not already well known to his classmates. One of the boys who always sat in the middle of the room — the better to see the clock. “Wes” could generally be found in one of the neighboring restaurants after class vociferously discussing law, politics and wimmin — especially wimmin. Besides being a law student he is one of Washington’s better baseball players and spends a large part of each summer on the local diamonds. WILLIAM HENRY BARRINGER Salisbury, North Carolina “Barry”, our Vice-President this year, has demonstrated his aptitude for hard work both in that office and the Masonic Club. His greatest dis- appointment at National has been that the effici- ency of the District Sanitary Department obviated the necessity of a Help-Keep-the-Campus-Clean Club such as he headed at Georgetown University. Too bad, “Barry”. CARL JOHN BATTER Woodside Park, Maryland B A 2 Introducing in this corner the gentleman who passed the D. C. Bar during his Junior year. And furthermore, a C.P.A. in two states which in itself is no mean accomplishment. Carl appears to be well equipped to practice in the constantly ex- panding field of tax law and all those counsellors who are annoyed by sur-taxes, exemptions and de- ductions are referred to him for advice at the usual fee. WILLIAM POLSON BELL Portsmouth, Virginia B A 2 In addition to his natural abilities “Bill” is gifted with a voice which should convince any jury that he is right especially if there are any women on the jury. Beta Lambda Sigma is proud to list “Bill” among its members. He is at present a bachelor but when he marries it is a safe bet he will be as successful in that as he is sure to be in his future law practice in Norfolk, Virginia. S ' eoiORST Fifty-seven NORMAN BOND BELT Hyattsville, Maryland After receiving a B.S. in Civil Engineering at the University of Maryland in 1933 , Norman sur- veyed the other fields and decided upon a legal profession. At the present time Norman is em- ployed as an inspector and draftsman at the Public Utilities Commission, but he intends to practice law in the District of Columbia and Mary- land after successfully hurdling the bar exams. LENOR MARTHA BENIK Baltimore, Maryland “Marth” is one of those rare persons with a passion for anonymity. After polishing off every- thing in the way of instruction at Strayer’s Busi- ness College and Brewbaker’s Secretarial School, “Marth” came to National for her LL.B. She is a clerk in the Department of Agriculture where she will utilize her legal lore, having no intention to enter practice. FLORENCE HELEN BENZING Cincinnati, Ohio A A Florence is employed as a secretary for the American Red Cross and before entering law school she attended the Economics and Govern- ment School. She served as Chancellor of Phi Delta Delta and is a member of the venerated Cy Pres Club. We are confident that her charming manner and attractive smile would take her far in “convincing the jury.” May you enjoy the utmost success in your chosen held. JOHN JAMES BERNARD Fredericksburg, Virginia 2 N £ “Lanternjaw Jimmy” was one of the best na- tured neophites of the law in school. Woe be unto the opposing counsel who attempts to sway a jury by pitting the wiles of a pretty blonde witness against Jimmy s smile! As Class Treasurer in our Ireshman year, “Jimmy” used his smile to a good advantage by enticing sheckles from the stu- dents to fill the Class Treasury. Bon Voyage on your road through life, “Jim”. m seoioRs ' m Fifty-eight JAMES HOWARD BISCOE Des Moines, Iowa One of the outstanding scholars in the class “Jim” forsook the City of Des Moines, and has- tened to Washington to be employed in Federal Crop Insurance Corporation. At N.U. he has taken an active interest in class affairs and faith- fully served on the Social Committee his Senior year. The class is indebted to him for the wisdom gleaned from his intelligent questions from the floor. “Jim” intends to practice law here in Washington. MELVIN M. BLAUSTEIN Washington, D.C. A B Melvin is a native son of Washington and plans to practice his chosen profession in the District. He will undoubtedly be the “Home town boy who makes good”. Melvin is Chaplain of Alpha Beta Phi and is one of a few peop le in Washington who does not work for Uncle Sam; a rugged indi- vidualist. DANIEL FARSON BODDIE Miami, Florida 2N $ “Dan”, a regular guy who really takes an in- terest in what is transpiring, after leaving Miami Senior High School, joined the Class of 1940. He has become an active member of Sigma Nu Phi but intends to transfer his activities to the sunny land of Florida to practice. His experience with the Navy Department will probably serve him well in the new field. SALVATORE BONGIORNO Brooklyn, New York All in the class who know this boy “Al” will ever remember and love him. Quiet, unassuming, friendly, he found a place in the heart of each. Those fortunate enough to have seats near him in class attest to his thoroughness in his work, and the determination with which he pursued his studies. His example was indeed inspiring and worthy of exemplification. “Al” will practice law here. m ffgraoRs - M_ B- Fifty-nine HARRY BONNETT Nashville, Georgia Harry’s practice of firing pertinent questions at the professors will serve him well in cross ex- amination of witnesses. Being accompanied to class so frequently by his Mrs. indicates team work that spells success. Although still indefinite as to plans for the future, we predict a brilliant one whatever may be his choice. He is at present a linotype operator in Uncle Sam’s big print shop. ROBERT FARRAR BRADFIELD Rocky River, Ohio B A 2 “Brad’’ is the perfect specimen of a man about school. Having that cheerful countenance and pleasant disposition which make up a swell per- sonality, he well deserves his many friends. As chairman of our Freshman Welfare Committee, Junior Executive Committee member, Chancellor of the Court of Law and Chancellor of the Court of Equity of Beta Lambda Sigma and member of the Docket Staff, his career at National has been pro- ductive of much constructive work. Yellow Dog , 1940. OSCAR WILLIAM BRYAN Las Vegas, Nevada 2 N If and when the women of National University seek alimony in Reno, we heartily recommend Oscar, who by that time will have carved his name in the legal annals of Nevada out in those western wilds where men are men and lawyers seek divorces for pretty socialites. Oscar attended Nevada University, Georgetown Law School and the Washington College of Law but he swears by National. He belongs to Sigma Nu Phi, Phi Delta Theta, and that great institution of marriage. Yellow Dog , 1940 JOSEPH BURSTEIN Chelsea, Massachusetts A B “Joe”, a bit of a mental giant, has acquired some of the highest grades in the Senior Class. During the day he serves Uncle Sam at General Accounting Office. “Little Joe” also swings a mean bow, being considered an artist by those who know. He has also rendered valuable assistance to his fraternity, at present serving as head of the Educational Plan of Alpha Beta Phi. ml fulfil ffaraoRsr i Lmc Sixty MARSHALL I. CARPENTER Arlington, Virginia Marshall is a native of Virginia, and is em- ployed as a market manager for a local grocery concern. Married, and the father of one child, he intends to return to Virginia and practice law. Any man that knows the law like Marshall knows vegetables is bound to be a success. The law is the berries, Marshall. But — remember — you don’t charge by the pound and you can’t weigh in your thumb. GEORGE WILLIAM CARTER Ava, Illinois Apex Honor Society , 2 N Vice-President in his Junior year, President in his Senior year, this boy well deserves both hon- ors. One of the really brilliant students in the class, he never seems to study but comes up with high marks in all subjects. George intends to practice law in his native Illinois, but we rather believe that such practice will be in the nature of a stepping stone to political office. His brothers of Sigma Nu Phi and his scores of other friends confidently predict his success. Yellow Dog, 1940. JOHN H. CHELLINGTON V inston Salem, North Carolina “Shelly”, a native Tar Heel, came to National L niversity after a sojourn at Furman University and George Washington University. Quiet and unassuming, “Shelly” is destined to reach the heights in his chosen profession. At present em- ployed by the Social Security Board as an Ad- judicator, John doesn’t know for sure whether to quit the government for law practice or remain with the S.S.B. ROBERT C. CLONTS, JR. Atlanta, Georgia Before attending National this studious young man acquired a B.B.A. degree from Emory Uni- versity in Atlanta, and attended Memphis and Georgetown Law Schools. Bob , who is married and has one child, still finds time to serve as a member of our class Executive Committee. He in- tends to use his legal knowledge in private em- ployment, and all who know him at National con- fidently predict success for him in all future un- dertakings. mmrnm m jsmions Sixty-one EDWARD ELLERBE COBBS Montgomery, Alabama “Ed” holds the distinction of being a member of the Alabama Bar and we all admire him for this accomplishment. He holds a B.S. degree from Alabama Polytechnic Institute and formerly at- tended Jones Law School, Montgomery, Alabama. While acquiring his LL.B. at National, “Ed” has been employed as a patent attorney on the staff of a local firm. WILLIAM P. COCHRANE Charlotte, North Carolina Apex Honor Society, 2 N f Despite his burning ambition to learn the law, which has caused him to partake of the rarefied atmosphere limited to those few with averages in the 90’s “Bill” has achieved considerable distinc- tion in extra-curricular activities. As Chancellor of Sigma Nu Phi and Photographic Editor of the Docket he has contributed much to the success of both organizations. His intention is to practice law here. We suspect “Bill” will be unable to re- sist the call of his native heath, North Carolina. Yellow Dog, 1910 GROVER WITCHER COE Miami, Florida Grover Coe, the personable young man from the sunshine State of Florida, who is known by every student at National University for his friendly and happy-go-lucky disposition. Grover attended Miami and Florida Universities before entering into the studies of his desired profession at National. For Grover, we predict a life full of sunshine in Miami where he expects to return and enter the practice of law. SAMUEL COHEN Washington, D. C. His career at National wasn’t just a “flyer” for “Sammy” although he is extremely interested in the modern field of Air Law and Areonautics as a whole. Hopes to have his LL.B. and pilots licence placed in a dual frame. He attended the University of Maryland before charting his course toward a place in the legal w r orld. Happy land- ings, “Sam”. sepiop.s i ifffiMgiaifr Sixty-two WILLIAM ALEXANDER CONOVER Denver; Colorado The past few months found “Bill” laboring diligently in his spare time as Assistant Photo- graphic Editor on the Docket Staff. Tiz appre- ciated during these trying days. “Bill” says “Not married — but could be”. So why not “Bill”? There is a suspicion this formidable Lochinvar has de- signs. Are we right? May you soon lay aside the old tomes at the Library of Congress and embark upon the more enjoyable task of compiling for posterity a biography on Johann Strauss. Yellow Dog, 1940. MILTON COOK Philadelphia Pennsylvania A B “Milt” attended Temple University and George Washington University before enrolling at Na- tional. He is employed as Assistant Statistical Clerk in the Bituminous Coal Division and is a member of Alpha Beta Phi Fraternity. “Milt” at present is a bachelor which condition will be re- medied soon after establishing himself in the prac- tice of law here. VICTOR JOSEPH COPPOLA Stamford, Connecticut With the background of two years of pre-legal and one and a half years at Georgetown Univer- sity Law School; “Cap” entered National Uni- versity. He is a U. S. Deputy Marshall in the Department of Justice by day and Sergeant-at- Arms of the Senior Class at night. After passing both the Connecticut and the District Bar exam- inations; “Cap” will be well qualified to practice law in the courts of his home state. EARL JAMES COX Indianapolis; Indiana 2 N Thanking lucky stars that “Judge” was merely a candidate for President; other wise we would not have his splendid service as Associate Editor of the Docket. Truly the “workhorse” of the Class; Earl has done much toward the accomplishments of the Docket, the Legislative Committee and all other class projects. A member of Sigma Nu Phi and Secretary to Congressman Larrabee of In- diana; Earl expects a successful practice in his native Hoosier State. Yellow Dog, 1940. m ffsraoBS ' l ag !e Sixty-three JAMES MURRAY CRACROFT Arlington, Virginia Not the rambling wreck from Georgia “Tech” but a Tulane Engineer! Since receiving his B.S. “Jim” anxious to “reach the heights” entered National University where he expects to annex the degree of J.D. to his name. Aside from study- ing law “Jim” serves his “Uncle” in the Forest Service and in leisure moments runs his little plantation in Virginia where he hopes to find the “Newdealistic Utopia of the More Abundant Life.” CHARLES DAILEY, JR. Aspen, Colorado “Cholly”, who prepped for National at the University of Colorado, really isn’t “the little man who wasn’t there”, he was only concealed behind his oversized brief case. With plenty of legal knowledge, and a smile that none can resist, this boy is headed for high places. May the class offer the hope, “Charlie” that your seat on the bench will be softer than the chairs at deali ol’ National. RALPH EDGAR DAUGHERTY Lakeland, Florida c B T “Babe” acquired a B.A. at the University of Florida before being brought to Washington by courtesy of the Democratic Party. As Associate Justice of Phi Beta Gamma and Inter-Fraternity Council Representative he has won many friends at National. Judging from the intensity with which he studied Florida statutes during classes, he will return as soon as possible to the Land of Flowers and Sunshine. JACKSON CASTINE DAVIS Norfolk, Virginia SN Before entering National, “Jack” obtained his B.S. degree at the University of North Carolina, and attended the Washington College of Law. The entire class regrets the fact that we have been privileged to associate with him for only one year. “Jack” is a member of Sigma Nu Phi, and will return to his native state to engage in an active law practice. Sixty-four M l SOXHOAS I M ! m LOUIS BURKE DAVIS Cleveland , Ohio A B c “Looey”; a member of Alpha Beta Phi; is cur- rently employed at the Navy Yard but is seriously considering a return to his native state; in the role of an embryonic attorney. With a captivating personality; and a running fire of humorous stories; this boy is definitely on his way up. It’s only a suggestion; but we believe that a firm of Davis and Burstein may someday win renown in the legal world. PLEASANT BAXTER DAVIS Washington; D. C. Apex Honor Society , B A 2 The possession of wardrobe from Esquire and an umbrella worthy of a Prime Minister are alone enough to distinguish this fellow from the common herd. Add to those worldly possessions a good- natured disposition which won him a multitude of friends and there you have Baxter. Another for- mer G. W. U. student; he worked on our Fresh- man and Senior Social Committees; Senior Ad- visory Committees; was Chancellor of Beta Lamb- da Sigma and member of Apex Honor Society. W. CLYDE DAVIS, JR. Virginia Beach; Virginia Clyde is another F.F.V. hailing from Virginia Beach. He has faithfully served the Class when- ever called upon; being Chairman of several com- mittees. Clyde is employed in the Advertising De- partment of the Hecht Company. Prior to matri- culation at National University he was an out- standing scholar at Atlantic University and by the way why does he smile so proudly these last few months ? Answer : Didn’t you see that clever birth announcement dated December 23, 1939? JAMES DONALD DAY Johnstown; Pennsylvania 2 A K “Red”; the sporting little bantam in the bowler hat; is more an authority on femininity that free- hold estates. That flashing red hair interferes with the slumbers of students around him. A popular member of Sigma Delta Kappa, “Don” has the happy quality of easily acquiring and holding friends. What a way this boy will have with an all girl jury. Sixty-five DORSEY HENRI DeLAVIGNE Washington, D. C. 2N Another Washingtonian, “Del " , sits back, takes in all the law and seldom says what he thinks. Employed by the Soil Conservation Service, De- partment of Agriculture, he plans to practice law in the District of Columbia. Member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity and a hard worker for any class venture, “Del " will be right up there when the final count is made. PEDRO VARGAS De LEON Manila, Philippine Islands Pedro is employed by the War Department and attended the University of the Philippines before coming to the states. He intends to practice law either in Washington or Manila. He has always taken an active interest in class affairs. It was nice knowing you, Pedro, and whether you re- main here or go back to your homeland, may the best of luck follow you. BERNARD DENNISON Washington, D. C. “B.D . " as his friends know him, graduated from Central High and then enrolled at National. He is employed by the A.F. of L. Machinists Union. We really haven’t a thing on this swell, decent, model young man. He is a great sports enthusiast and can handle a football, basketball, baseball and tennis racquet with skill. He also plays a slashing game of checkers. “D.B. " in- tends to join his brother in the practice of law. JACK SAMUEL DICK Washington, D. C. A B Our little man with the three first names is a native of Washington and attended George Wash- ington University prior to entering National. “Sam " , who also answers to the name of “Puffy " intends to practice in the District. When he isn’t studying law he usually is traveling along the Eastern seaboard visiting members of the fair sex. He has been very active in Alpha Beta Phi, serving as both Sheriff and Scribe. !n§= Sixty-six DUDLEY HARDEN DIGGES Washington, D. C. “Dud” is Assistant Secretary of the R.F.C. Mortgage Company which gives him a good foundation in Real Property and Trusts. He is a resident of the District of Columbia and formerly attended George Washington University. Don’t let that nickname fool you, for this fellow isn’t a “dud” when it comes to knowledge of the law. Mr. and Mrs. “Dud” are the proud parents of one child. JACK Y. DINSMORE Washington, D. C. Without an apparent care in the world, Jack is the essence of nonchalance and everyone in class is a target for his cheery greetings. He attended George Washington University before enrolling at National. Although now employed in private business Jack will soon make a valuable asset to the legal profession. Whatever may be his goal our good wishes go with him. HOWARD TANNEHILL DOTY Reading, Pennsylvania 2 A K Doty’s assets include two sons and to hear his glowing description of them, they must be the two greatest guvs in the world. Howard attended the University of Pennsylvania Wharton School of Finance before coming to Washington. He is now employed in the Bureau of Biological Survey, De- partment of the Interior. The Government will lose him soon however, as he intends to practice law in the District of Columbia. ROBERT VERNON HARRIS DUNCAN Alexandria, Virginia 2 A K “Bob” is a typical Southern gentleman, pol- ished, popular and very active in social and poli- tical affairs. A member of Sigma Delta Kappa, the Young Democratic Club and Lord Fairfax Club, his many friends may miss him since his marriage last fall. Like many of his former class-mates at William and Mary, he plans to practice law in the State of Virginia. W l 5«I -K RSr M IB- Sixty-seven RALPH OTTO DUNKER Aberdeen, South Dakota 2 N “Dunk” tlie “Dick”. Some sleuth ! Supposed to be a G-man, but all he ever looks for is some moll who likes little men with a hot line about what big shots they were back home in Aberdeen. Four letter man at Northern State Teachers’ College — he says. However, we do know he is a member of Sigma Nu Phi and a mighty fine friend to have. Yellow Dog, 1940. JOHN EDWARD DUNPHY Denver, Colorado 2 N The Class of 1940 here presents a real, honest- to-goodness law student. John’s school catalogue must have contained a misprint, because he seems to believe that if he gets a grade of less than 95, he has to take the course over again. So far, there has been no need for any such repetition. Besides his brilliant work in the classroom, John takes an active part in the affairs of Sigma Nu Phi. ROBERT EMMET DWYER Orange, New Jersey “Bob” wandered off the reservation at George Washington University one day and found him- self within the confines of National’s campus. Liked it so well he stayed on to become an active member of our Class. Got any traffic complaints — see “Bob”. He’s a clerk in Police Court which should provide him with some practical procedure not available in law school. THOMAS WILLIAM EASTMAN Alexandria, Virginia Apex Honor Society, 2 N j The politician, poet, and scholar; proud papa of three; story narrator, (good and bad) and eminent prospective attorney. With these and other virtues “Tommy” has endeared himself to us and inscribed in our minds the kind of a guy one ought to be. His goal is undoubtedly beyond the stars. His motto — “Aim high and believe yourself capa- ble of great things !” “Tommy” was Class Histor- ian in our Junior year and his counsel is sought by all. Yellow Dog, 1940. yS ' 6J IOJRS ' l BllgR EH ag Sixty-eight AUGUST FREDERICK EBERLY, JR. Bridgton, Maine It’s a long stretch, folks, from Bridgton to D. C. but if August says he’s going to practice law in both places we know that he will. August attended Lehigh University for two years before coming to National. He is employed as a calcu- lator at Farm Credit Administration. With the knack of wearing clothes well topped off by a professional-looking moustache, graduation the last of June will be the beginning of August. WILLIAM THOMPSON FINLEY Senecaville. Ohio “Bill”. a Buckeye from the metropolis of Se- neca ville. acquired an A.B. at Muskingum College at New Concord, and graduate work at University of Michigan. He works (?) at the Library of Congress. As Snapshot Editor of the Docket “Bill” proved himself a photographic genius and we are indebted to him for the unique and inimitable candid shots throughout this volume. Wherever you practice law “Bill” whether D. C. or Ohio we all wish you luck. JAMES SNOWDEN FLUCKEY Washington. D. C. “Slim Jim” is at home in Washington. D. C., but did much to broaden himself (intellectually) by obtaining a B.S. in the science of Engineering at Princeton University. Even this broad field did not furnish sufficient outlet for “Jim’s” ambitions so law found it’s way into his system. If he can command as much attention from clients as he gives his professors at school success will be his. HARRY J. FORBES Dallas. Texas Harry is the bachelor boy whose sunny dis- position and head of red curly hair has caused the fair sex in the class to spend more than the cus- tomary time in the “Ladies’ Lounge” making themselves presentable. Now employed as a Claims Examiner by the Department of Agricul- ture, Harry intends to resign and let the govern- ment shift for itself as soon as he completes his legal education. .S€P IQX SH [ !b§= Sixty -nine CHARLES STEPHEN FRANCIS Lakeland, Florida 2 N “Chas” is a clerk with I.C.C., a real Southern gentleman and a scholar of unbounded ability. He served faithfully and ably as Sergeant-at-Arms of the Freshman Class and is a member of Sigma Nu Phi (Legal). Many near riots were averted by “Charlie” changing his socks. For a time they were so loud that some of the students complained they couldn’t sleep. Yellow Dog, 1940. GEORGE L. FRANK Brooklyn, New York Although George hails from that well known Borough where baseball is a game and not a busi- ness, he has none of the eccentricities of his favor- ite team. Having studied at Brooklyn College be- fore entering National, he has distinguished him- self here as a student and willing worker on the Executive Committee. We predict for George a successful career as a practicing attorney in Washington. GREEN RAYNER GAILLARD Meridian, Mississippi “Ray” received his B.S. degree at Mississippi State College before coming to Washington to attend National University Law School, and in- cidentally to take over the post of Deputy U. S. Marshal in the Department of Justice. “Ray” and his wife will pull stakes this summer and head south where he will take the Mississippi bar exam- ination. All the world of success to you and your practice in Meridian, “Ray”. JAMES PATRICK GALLAGHER Washington, D. C. B A 2 One of the best known and most popular stu- dents in the class, “Pat” was President of the Freshman Class in 1936-37, Chairman of the Fin- ance Committee and Parliamentarian in 1938-39; and served as Technical Adviser to the Docket Staff. Now in private employment, “Pat” plans to practice law here. His associates on the Docket know full well that the energy and acumen he possesses will keep the reception office filled with satisfied clients when he enters legal practice.

He intends practicing law in Texas and will probably follow in father’s footsteps, district attorney, judge, Member of Congress. Yellow Dog, 194 0 . CLYDE EDWARD GARTLEY Lead, South Dakota Apex Honor Society, B A 2 With a quality of sly humor and sincerity of purpose seldom equalled, Clyde not only captures but holds the friendship of his associates. You’d think from the name of his home town that he is a rootin’ tootin’ son of the plains — but not so. He is a mild spoken, studious fellow who earnestly wades thru the job at hand and produces results. Clyde is a member of Beta Lambda Sigma and as- sisted the Docket Staff immeasurably. Yellow Dog, 1940 . CHARLES ALLEN GEARHART Ellicott City, Maryland Watch “Charlie” smash precedents with the same gusto with which he smashed baggage for Greyhound Lines. Charlie is one of those boys who charts a course and heads straight for his mark, with no deviation. That look of grim de- termination bodes no good for his opponent at the counsel table. An alumnus of Ellicott City High School, and now of National University Charlie is destined for a brilliant career. COURTLAND I. GILLETT Fremont, Nebraska 2 N Courtland attended Omaha University of Law before coming to Washington. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi and his return to National after an absence of a year, was welcomed by his many friends. Courtland is undecided whether or not he will practice law, preferring at present to use his ‘Tamin’ ” in the Office of the Solicitor, De- partment of Agriculture, where he is employed. M fferaoRS ' m lug. Seventy-one EDWARD F. GINGER Chicago, Illinois If “spice is the variety of life”, “Ginger” has it, with his ready wit and bubbling good humor. “Ginger” hails from Chicago, Illinois, attended the University of Illinois and received a B.C.S. degree from Benjamin Franklin University. We predict a successful career for him in the practice of law in the District of Columbia or Chicago. It was nice knowing you ! DAVID HIRAM GOFFEN Brooklyn, New York A B Although “Dave” hails from Brooklyn he tries hard to live it down. He is now employed by the I.C.C. and received his pre-legal training at Brooklyn College. Though still single, he wouldn’t be if he could save train fare to bring his fiancee from Brooklyn. “Dave” is a member of Alpha Beta Phi and is one of the students who made the publication of the 1 Rochet possible. SAUL MEYER GOLDFARB Woodbine, New Jersey Saul is one of the most versatile men in the class as evidenced by the fact that he is at present employed in the G.A.O., has attended the Baron De Hirsch Agricultural Academy and now tops these achievements with an LL.B. In addition he is married and a proud papa. May you enjoy the fruits of your labors, whether in practice of the law or in any other field. A. LEON GOLDMAN Auburn, New York Leon has a flying start on the field, being as- sociated with the law firm of Peyser, Jacobsen and Peyser. Perhaps that’s why he is so upset if his marks happen to fall below 98. He is from Au- burn, not the famous prison but the town where it is located, and reports from that area indicate that he is an expert at ping pong and has trophies to prove it.

He now works as a patent searcher for a local legal firm. “Eddv” advises that after graduation he will practice law in Washington, New York, Pitts- burgh, Chicago, or points west. The class wishes him the best of luck and suggests that the selling of legal ability to clients is quite different from selling punch boards. SHIRLEY V. GRIFFITH Chattanooga, Tennessee 2N “Griff” attended Chattanooga College of Law before coming to Washington to aid Jim Farley, our Postmaster General. He seems to have learned quite a lot from Mr. Farley and has been cam- paign manager for successful political tickets in our class for the past two years. It is rumored, however, that his young daughter manages him as adroitly as he manages campaigns. “Griff” is a Sigma Nu Phi and is Art Editor of the Docket. Yellow Dog , 1940. SANTIAGO G. GUZMAN Edinburo, Texas Santiago, a very quiet Texan in the classroom, is another prospective practitioner for the Lone Star State. However, despite his traditional West- ern retiscence his sincere friendship is very vividly outspoken. A graduate of St. Edwards University, Austin, Texas he is at present As- sistant Secretary to the Honorable M. H. West, Congressman from Texas. ALEX N. HAMILTON Jackson, Mississippi Here’s a boy who has a name to live up to. By all records to date Alex is doing just that. Doesn’t know whether to practice law or con- tinue his employment with the Department of Commerce. In either field his many friends wish him success. Our wonderment is “Why Alex didn’t want to buy a Docket”. ml m ssmaas m _ !b- Seventy-three WILLIAM HENRY HARPER, JR. Greenwood, Mississippi Apex Honor Society, j B T “Bill” has had a fascinating law school career. After an unsuccessful race for Class Presidency in the Junior year, he announced this year, “1 do not choose to run” — but his spirit and good will produced such achievements as Chief Justice of Phi Beta Gamma, member of the Interfraternity Council, and Assistant Business Manager of the Docket. “Bill” also served as Chairman of the Social Committee in the Freshman year. Yellow Dog, 1910. JAMES ROBERT HARRIS Arlington, Virginia 2Nc “A” Deputy Commissioner of Revenue, and not “The” Deputy Commissioner of Revenue. “Jimmy” wants it understood that he doesn’t run the show in the courthouse in Arlington Coun- ty, but we all know that he could ably fill the position as “The” Deputy Commissioner of Reve- nue. Is this modesty or discretion? “Jimmy” is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and he intends to practice law in the D. C. and Virginia. GERALD LEWIS HARTMAN Bloomsburg, Pennsylvania “Jerry”, though a native of the Quaker State, has become so acclimated to Washington by reason of graduation from Eastern High School and em- ployment with the D. C. Government as Audit Clerk that he intends to make his home and prac- tice here. A diligent student, “Jerry” will pro- bably succeed in his profession in spite of keen competition from his former classmates. HELEN ALEXANDRA HAYNES Hamtramck, Michigan K B n As the ch oice of the Senior Class for Miss At- torney, Helen demonstrated her pleasing per- sonality and popularity with her class-mates. Fur- ther evidence of her esteem is her selection as a member of the Senior Executive Committee. A nice gal and one whose friendship is to be treas- ured. As a legal secretary with Rural Electrifi- cation, Helen will have ample opportunity to use her legal talents although she does not intend to practice. M i seraoR.s ' m B Seventy -four WARREN RAYMOND HEARN Dresden, Tennessee Apex Honor Society, 2 N f Warren gave his all to the study of the law and so will reap the fruits of his earnest endeavors. He was an active member of numerous commit- tees and Vice-Chancellor of Sigma Nu Phi. War- ren’s main weakness was giving too many points on Tennessee. Warren sports a B.S. degree from Murray State College, Kentucky, aand hopes to add his LL.B. this June. Yellow Dog, 1940. THELMA LOIS HENDRIXON Greenfield, Indiana K B n “Teddy” has been continuously active in stu- dent affairs during our three years at National. She has served as Vice-President and President of the Cy Pres Club, and as Recording Secre- tary of Kappa Beta Pi Sorority. A faithful Na- tional University booster, she received her pre- legal training in our own School of Economics Government. Now employed in the Department of Agriculture she hopes to practice law here and we sincerely hope that she will realize that ambition. JAMES DANIEL HOBBS Ahoskie, North Carolina 2N f “Jimmy” is a clerk in the Works Project Ad- ministration and an active member of Sigma Nu Phi. As Senior Aid to the Editor he rendered val- uable service on the Miss Attorney Contest as well as on other assignments given him, performing his w ork cheerfully and efficiently. The class cer- tainly will remember him for O-yez ! O-yez ! in Moot Court. Yellow Dog, 1940. LEO DAVID HOCHSTETTER Pittsburg, Pennsylvania Leo was the fellow behind the scenes who so capably handled the newspaper publicity for our “Miss Attorney” contest. His experience in pub- lic relations work gained with the C.I.O. and as National University Public Relations Counsel con- tributed much to the success of that venture. Leo attended both the University of Chicago and G.W.U. before coming to National. Newspaper work being his first love, he will probably follow that vocation rather than enter the field of law. Yellow Dog, 1940. jsBBlgW l 5€I IOX S Seventy- five ROY CHARLES HOFFMAN Ida Grove, Iowa “Blackie” studied for his A.B. degree at the University of Iowa and G.W.U. and is now work- ing determinedly for a J.D. Besides studying con- scientiously he found time to render invaluable aid as Assistant Technical Adviser to the Docket Edi- tor. He is a section chief in the Department of Agriculture and is undecided as to the future. His capacity for hard work, however, and his able mind assure success in any career he undertakes. Yel- low Dog, 1940. VERNE DUNN HOFFMAN Ida Grove, Iowa c A A Upon her arrival in the Capital City from Detroit where she sojourned one year in a law office, this young legal aspirant decided to take the law in her own hands. In January 1938 Verne joined our Class and has since devoted her con- certed efforts to obtaining the coveted degree. The Class all wish “Sis” great success in the practice of law as well as her admiring husband who buys all the briefs and fixes things with Mr. Cassin each month. CHESTER A. HOLDEN Cleveland, Ohio “Chet” is that studious minded fellow who al- ways sought to extract the utmost from the Profs., by a series of searching questions. This results in grades such as 99, which he got in Review. (It is suspected that he also writes the questions which Bonnett asks.) His native habitat — the sixth city — probably will seem lonsome after the intrigue of the Nation’s Capital. We predict great things for him. GEORGE RICHARD HOUSTON Washington, D. C. “Doc”, Sergeant-at-Arms last year, Treasurer this year, is the best known man in the class. For three years he has distributed attendance cards and never failed to heed a distress signal. He became the proud father of a son and heir last June and subsequently, but not consequently, underwent a serious operation. In his spare time he is a clerk at the U. S. Supreme Court. Yellow Dog, 1940. Seventy-six ROBERT HOUSTON HOVIS, JR. Fayetteville, Tennessee Smiling jovial Hovis sat in the front row all three years and says a person can learn more law thata way. A strong sympathizer of his native state both in law and football he plans to practice back home if “Rose Bowls” don’t take away his transportation. When the time comes to pass that Tennessee bar exam we expect Hovis to be right in there pitching. WILLIAM REMBERT HOWELL Winder, Georgia “Bill” began his education at Georgia Tech. Since then he’s rambled, but he’s not quite a wreck. Assistant Business Manager of the Doclcet, he has done a wonderful job of keeping the adver- tisers quiet until this book went to press. “Bill”, “Buck”, or “Bert”, take your choice — is the only man in class who can sleep through lectures, date beautiful girls, and wind up with a 90 average. GRAHAM FREDERICK HUTCHISON Chicago, Illinois 2 N Graham, an artistic developer of poetry dur- ing dull class lectures, did much to make ou- Senior year one of the happiest of all. A member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, Graham is destined to reach the heights. Hasn’t declared his intentions as to practicing law, but whatever may be his choice to do, our best goes with him. FREDERICK DALE IRWIN Mishawaka, Indiana 2N “Fred” looks forward to the day when he re- ceives word that he has passed the Indiana Bar. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Frater- nity and attended Wabash College before coming to National. Nothing flashy about “Fred” but in that quiet way of his he goes straight for the goal and we all know he will be one of the first to come through on top. ml mw m 5ei iojRs m Seventy-seven CHARLES IRVIN JENKINS Tarboro, North Carolina 2 A K “Charlie” is a graduate of Benjamin Franklin University, having received his Bachelor’s and Master’s degrees there. He is also a C.P.A. in both the District of Columbia and North Carolina, which is no mean accomplishment. As a member of Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity and Editor of Si-De-Ka he has found time between his hobby of collecting degrees to make many friends and do much useful work. ROBERT LOUIS JERNBERG Juneau, Alaska “Bob”, Deputy U. S. Marshal, afforded the class several happy hours this year by his able testimony in the role of Coroner in Moot Court. Formerly a student at Washington State College, “Bob” will return home to embark on a legal career, and if he can cross examine as well as he can answer questions while serving in the capacity of witness, he will never have to depend on gold mining as a livelihood. LLOYD E. JOHNSON Los Angeles, California Lloyd is one of the strong, silent types of men who study over their beer. There is little known of this man but if his conduct in class is an in- dication of his daily endeavors the Audit Division of the GAO is certain to be benefited by his pres- ence. We wish you the best of success in your practice as a sundown lawyer. HUGH C. JONES, JR. Hominy, Oklahoma Apex Honor Society, 2 A K A wandering “Sooner”, Hugh came to National University after a sojourn at George Washington University. He is a Junior Investigator in the Federal Works Agency and a good one if he goes at it in the same diligent manner with which he pursues the solution of vexatious legal questions. Hugh is active in Sigma Delta Kappa and Docket Staff member and tells us that he intends to follow the legal practice in Oklahoma. ml m saoioRs ' iuwbbbbe Seventy-eight yL MOCCCUW y ? oo 3 v — LILLIAN ARABELLE JONES Columbia, South Carolina j A A Lillian, who already holds an A.B. from the University of South Carolina, will be the happy recipient of a J.D. from National University. Her active interest in class affairs is evidenced by her membership in the Cy Pres and as Reporter of her sorority. Phi Delta Delta. Her associates in Moot Court will testify that upon her entrance into the practice of law she will prove a formidable opponent. LUCILLE MILLER JONES Bethesda, Maryland Here we find the happy combination of beauty, intelligence and personality all wrapped up in one grand person. “Lucy” is married and followed the man of her choice through National University and if he were not such a brilliant fellow in his own right we would be inclined to think the legal competition would be too great. Lucy attended George Washington University and served as Sec- retary of her Freshman Class. DAVID J. KAPLAN Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Before finally deciding on law as a career, “Dave” previously studied commercial art at the Livingstone Academy. He has now definitely com- mitted himself, however, to a legal career in Washington. Prominent in class affairs “Dave” has served on several committees during the past three years and graduates with the best wishes of the entire class. He is employed by the Panama Canal. FRANK M. KARSTEN St. Louis, Missouri 2N “Kark”, the blonde demon from St. Louis, is Secretary to one of the “Show Me” Congressmen. A member of Sigma Nu Phi and something of an orator, “Kark” hopes to practice his hard earned knowledge of the law in the District. If he pur- sues his clients as diligently as he has his studies, a successful barrister will be the result. Many a barrel of “midnite oil” has been burned by this lad as you may well know. m .sexaoRs i i cibk sb Seventy-nine MICHAEL KEARNEY New Hampton, Iowa “Mike”, we’ve often wondered just how tall that corn does grow? We do know that you’re a bit ahead of us with an LL.B. in December and an LL.M. coming up in June. “Mike” attended Iowa and Georgetown Universities before coming to National. Our best wishes go with you when that shingle goes up in Des Moines. RICHARD F. KITTERMAN Des Moines, Iowa Apex Honor Society, 2 N j Business Manager — The Docket for 1940 — Here’s the man the Class of ’40 can never ade- quately thank and our thanks are not enough. Working with the Editor in that fashion, known to classmates, brothers, and staff members, we could never have gone to press without him. “Dick” is married and has one son. Our good wishes for success and happiness will go with him always. We predict that he will find a place at the top. Yellow Dog, 1940. EDWARD J. KNADLE Wahpeton, North Dakota Having attended the State School of Science in Wahpeton for two years and Gregg College in Chicago, Illinois for one year, “Ed” finally found himself in the National Labor Relations Board here as a law clerk. With his legal training at National University behind him we expect him to go far in the field of labor relations. All our good wishes, “Ed”, for a successful career. GORDON BENNETT KNIGHT Sioux Falls, South Dakota Apex Honor Society, 2 N Our Docket Editor has the rare combination of tireless energy plus the quality of leadership which makes others want to work with him. How well this is known to all his Docket associates. “Gordy” devoted two years to academic work at Sioux Falls College before taking up his legal studies at National, but plans, for some undisclosed reason, to practice law in Arizona. He is also an active member of Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. Yellow Dog, 1940. ml !n§= Eighty CHARLES WILLIAM KOECHLEY Bellevue, Ohio “Charlie” attended Ohio State University and soon after came to Washington as a Soil Conser- vation engineer. He decided to answer the calling of the law and embarked upon his career of higher learning by entering National University. He is a diligent student and should have no trouble in building a flourishing law practice once he is armed with his LL.B. WERNER B. KORBY Detroit Michigan A striking resemblance to Prof. Carusi of Crim- inal Procedure may not be indicative of as thorough a knowledge of the subject but we venture to predict that Werner; upon commencing practice in Michigan; will soon convince his opponents that the hours spent at National University were not wasted. Werner will probably find that his B.C.S. from Benjamin Franklin University will be of valuable aid in his future practice. CHARLES EDWARD KREY Washington; D. C. “The man with the bushy hair”; that’s “Charlie”! He is also well known for his job as presiding officer over large quantities of ice cream. Among other achievements: a B.S. degree from Cornell University and membership in National University Masonic Club. May his exposure to the vagaries of the law be a stepping stone in his chosen field of endeavor. THEODORE ADELARD LaDOUCEUR Manchester; New Hampshire “Ted”; as we know him; arrived from up North several years ago. He is now employed by the Labor Department. “Ted” can proudly boast of his lovely wife — the lucky stiff — as yet there are no children but “Ted” is biding his time. Back in Manchester; New Hampshire, a big “little city”, he attended St. Augustine Academy. “Ted” has no intention of practicing law in Washington. ml ml smioBS m Eighty-onc JOHN MARSHALL LANE Providence, Rhode Island John, now employed at the Naval Medical School, intends, after passing a half-dozen or so bar examinations, to practice law in the District of Columbia, Massachusetts, Rhode Island, North Carolina and Mexico. His is a noble purpose, well worthy of his illustrious predecessor the original John Marshall. We feel however that we must of necessity warn him that he cannot buy a com- muter’s ticket between Washington and Mexico. HENRY GRADY LANGLEY Fitzgerald, Georgia 2 N This big, quiet fellow received an A.B. from the University of Georgia before favoring the War Department with his services. He is a member of National University Masonic Club and Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity. Henry intends to practice law here and from his studious mein he should have no trouble. His nickname is “Happy-Go-Lucky” but his serious manner belies the inference one might imply from such a handle. NORMA D. LAYTON Denver, Colorado K B n Norma is one of our most promising Portias, having prepared for her legal education at Den- ver University and George Washington University. She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi and has a host of friends who wish her success in her career as practicing attorney here in Washington. Norma is known best for her quiet, pleasant manner and excellent grades in all of her studies. LUTHER THOMAS LEE Helena, Montana Coming to National from the University of Montana, “Lee” immediately became one of the most active members of our class and during our Junior year held the position of Chairman on the Welfare Committee. He does not intend to prac- tice law after graduation as he will devote the majority of his time to his hobbies — blondes, brunettes, redheads and airplanes. Senior repre- sentative for Docket Staff. ml Mi l sepTORs m s§= Eighty-two GERTRUDE LEIBSON Brooklyn, New York I T T After attending Brooklyn College, Gertrude took a position with the Securities and Exchange Commission and came to National to join the Class of 194-0. She is a member of Iota Tau Tau Legal Sorority. Her ambition is to engage in legal work with the Government and knowing her ability, we feel sure she will be an asset to any Government agency. HAROLD ALLEN LEVY Welch, West Virginia “Hal” is employed by the Labor Department. He has an A.B. from George Washington Univer- sity but is having difficulty in deciding whether or not he will practice law and if so, where he will practice. Any assistance in this matter will be appreciated bv him. “A rose by any other name would smell as sweet” — Munter. ROSE DRUCHER LIPPMAN New York, New York Why bother to say anything about “Tiny”? Everyone lias seen her, heard her, and felt the imprint of her high heels as she belatedly took her seat in the middle of the row. Employed by FHA she is a member of the Cy Pres Club. No one is sure, but many of her classmates suspect that “Rosie” has her hats designed by “students” at “Epilepsy Tech”. How the boys whistle — it must be the hat ! BOYNTON PARKER LIVINGSTON Falls Church, Virginia 2N cf Boynton was well versed in the law before he entered National University. His position as a law clerk exposed him sufficiently to provide him with an exceTent legal background with which to awe the tyros in the Freshman Class. Boynton took an active part in Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity al- though a substantial part of his time was spent in massaging his cowlick. M -SSDJQRS | g Eighty-three BERNARD GUY LOVELESS, JR. North Beach; Maryland Bernard has a B.C.S. degree from Benjamin Franklin University which he utilizes in his pres- ent position in the Federal Works Agency. His LL.B. will make two bachelor’s degrees, which is fitting and proper as he is not yet married. His greatest ambition is to become Mayor of North Beach. May it be realized in the very near future. SHIRLEY RUSSELL LOWMAN Huntington, Indiana 2 N ( p Shirley is known in our class as an expert in the preparation of legal documents. We don t mean the experience he has acquired in the Government Printing Office. Shirley has the happy faculty of acquiring friendships which are lasting and real. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) fra- ternity. Whether government career or legal prac- tice, the best of luek, Shirley. ROBERT WILLIAM LUDDEN Scotia, New York “Bob” is one who took the “work s” at National University having first completed the School of Economics Government before embarking upon the studv of law. He is employed with the National Park Service, and at present is undecided whether to continue in government service or strike out for himself as a practitioner of the law. Whichever it is, our best wishes go with him. EARL WILSON MacCALLUM Knoxville, Tennessee 2 N 4 He may be quiet and unassuming but friend- ship to “Mack” really means all that the word implies. No lengthy or flowery orations does he deliver but when he speaks it is with a tone of authority denoting confidence. And well may he possess confidence after those long hours of dili- gence. “Mack” attended the University of Ten- nessee before coming to National, and is a member of Sigma Nu Phi. seyions ' !B§= Eighty-four MILES EDGAR MAGARGEL Bellefonte, Pennsylvania 2 N f “Mac” attended Penn State before coming to National. A willing worker, he was Chairman of the Class Advisory Committee and Docket Repre- sentative in his Freshman year, and Junior Class President 1936-37. He served as Liason Officer of the Docket. His brothers of Sigma Nu Phi and his classmates generally all acclaim this genial and popular lad. Aw ! shucks, ma ! I can’t think of anvthino; against this fellow. I ellow Dog , 1940. VINCENT JOSEPH MANCUSO Washington, D. C. 2 N f Another native Washingtonian, popular with the class and his Brothers in Sigma Nu Phi Fra- ternitv, chosen as Marshal of the fraternity. W ork- ing as a clerk for the D. C. Government, “Vince” has always done his part in any class venture putting his shoulder to those many things that needed a little shoving. Keep shoving “Vince” — you’ll get there. WHITNEY MARKLEY Idaho Falls, Idaho “Mark” is a fellow who doesn’t have much to say, but keep your eye on him. There’s ability there, my friend. He is at present employed as a Clerk in the GAO and acted as Chairman of the Committee presenting the “gavel” at the Docket Dance. He hasn’t said yet whether he will enter legal practice but may good fortune follow you always is our wish, “Mark”. JAMES B. MARSHALL Lakeland, Florida Apex Honor Society, 2 N Working night and day as Literary Editor on other Senior biographies how can “Jaybee” expect a good write up of himself? Master of the Rolls of his fraternity, popular with all the students, this lanky “gator” is going places. Employed by Internal Revenue as auditor, J.B. does not intend to practice law. Attended Benjamin Franklin be- fore National University, married, and has one heir. J.B. held a front seat throughout the three years — laches (sleeping on his rights). Yellow Dog, 1940. Eighty -five iEBW l .S ' gDIQRS | Sf ■■ ROBERT L. MARSHALL New York, New York “Bob” will long be remembered by the Class of 1940 as the boy who got his hair cut by a lawn mower during our Junior year, the story goes that “Bob” was saving up to get married and decided to make one haircut do the work of ten. Babies screamed, women fainted, and strong men turned pale at the sight, until his hair returned to normal length. BINGHAM WITMER MATHIAS Chambersburg, Pennsylvania “Bing”, now employed as a clerk by the Com- mittee on Invalid Pensions, House of Represen- tatives, will soon take his place as one of Wash- ington’s actively practicing attorneys, and at the same time National will be losing one of its most popular students. Besides being an excellent stu- dent in his own right, “Bing” in his quiet way has helped many another student untangle knotty legal problems by his excellent and friendly advice. WILSON M. MATTHEWS Enon, Ohio 2 N Too much cannot be said in favor of this fellow. A member of Sigma Nu Phi, “Matt” is employed in the Bureau of Internal Revenue and if he is as efficient there as he has been as Vice-President of his Freshman Class and President of his Jun- ior Class, the Treasury has a man of which they may well be proud. Active in all class affairs and a real cooperator when work was to be done. Wilson, we salute you! Yellow Dog, 1940. CARLOS LEROY MERRICK Carydon, Iowa Carlos has forsaken his native Hawkeye State and plans to enter practice in the District of Columbia. In the interim he is employed at the Federal Housing Administration just waiting with bated breath to hear the words of appointment as an officer of the Court and member of the District of Columbia Bar. Eight y-six SROJORS NOURHAN MESROBIAN Elmhurst, New York “Mes” with his wavy locks and engaging smile is everyone’s friend. That’s something of a feat for one executing the onerous duties of a Deputy Marshal. Whether or not he will practice law is still a question mark. Serving process, just a hint. “Mes”, should produce a world of pointers on “How to be a defense attorney”. FRANKLIN TERRANCE MILES Washington, D. C. Franklin has attended many schools, namely, Duke, Maryland, George Washington University, and Rollins College in Florida. Last but not least, he is now a student at National University and for all his efforts he will be awarded a law degree in June. May you find this helpful on your road through life and may fate smile upon you when your shingle is out. It was nice knowing you ! FRANK J. MONACO Atlanta, Georgia 2 N $ With that LL.B. sealed and delivered, National Park Service can expect to lose Frank very soon. Frank is a member of the Georgia Bar, having attended Atlanta Law School before coming to National to complete his studies. A member of Sigma Nu Phi Frank originally hailed from New York City where Wall Street was a familiar haunt. With his experience we expect him to soar to great heights in the legal profession. Yellow Dog, 1940. HERBERT F. MOORE Winston Salem, North Carolina “Herby” Moore, another “Tar Heel” student is just about ready to start helping Hoover (not Herbert) track down a few public enemies but his most apparent capability, in a classroom at least, is to incite a riot with his boisterous cheering and other enthusiastic demonstrations. “Herbie” is devoting deep thought to matrimony and as a suggestion, Domestic Relations will solve any il- lusions he may have on the subject. pBBg M S gi)iaRsr Eighty-seven WAYLAND WILSON MOORE Winston Salem, North Carolina B r Wayland is the youngest member of the Class of 1940. His hobbies consist of all the sports, especially basketball and swimming. Cares nothing for politics and is Chancellor of Phi Beta Gamma Fraternity. He is allergic to women except on the golf course — a very popular student whose curly locks are envied by all comely maidens. P.S. Where do you get those hats, “Wally ? I ellow Dog, 1940. CHARLES EVERETT MORGAN Scranton, Pennsylvania B r Charles, a member of Phi Beta Gamma Legal Fraternity, was Bailiff of that organization dur- ing 1938-1939. He is a graduate of Central High School, I). C., and received his B.A. degree from the University of Maryland. He works in Pub- lications Section, National Guard Bureau, War Department, and will receive the coveted J.D. de- gree with the Class of 1940. “Charlie” always attacked legal questions witli an earnestness that can only assure future success in legal practice. GLENN F. MORGAN Bethesda, Maryland 2 N This gentleman was invariably late for class but did not depend upon any favor from the profs in order to get high grades. Self-made until now — now self-sufficient. The fraternity that first cornered him, Sigma Nu Phi, is proud to enjoy his friendship and intellectual stimulation. Glenn is successful as a practitioner before the I.C.C., so, it’s fairly certain that the law will fit right into his system. CHRIS D. MORITZ Seymour, Indiana Looking for someone to do the “heavy work”? Look no further. “Butch” did yeoman service on the “Miss Attorney” contest. He made many trips between Washington and Indiana to convince home folks he should be Prosecuting Attorney. After two years pre-legal work at Notre Dame, Chris joined us in his quest for an LL.B. He expects to prac- tice in Indiana. Knowing Chris, he probably will. Yellow Dog , 1940. S jX3QRS Eighty-eight ANNICE PEARLE MOUNT Enterprise, Alabama k b n “Pam” hails from Alabama and works in the Internal Revenue. She is a Kappa Beta Pi, was Secretary to the Junior Class and is Social Editor of the Docket. She coyly refuses to state her in- tentions, but hearken to a future instructor at National: “In the famous construction steel case, Chancellor Mount, sitting on the wool-sack, un- hampered by plans or girders, delivered this well considered opinion”. JOHN ALLAN MUNTEAN Sharon, Pennsylvania 2 N “Johnny’s” from the Quaker State and doesn’t know whether he wants to practice law here or there but, whichever it is, he’s a cinch to win. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and an all ’round good fellow. Those voluminous notes he takes in class have proved their worth as he is now “looking down the throat of an LL.B. RAY R. MURDOCK Beaver, Utah In conjunction with Ray’s full time position as Secretary to a member of Congress, he is striv- ing for a legal career. Ray attended the Univer- sity of Utah and George Washington University before coming to National University. During the first year “Ray” set the pace by attaining the highest average of the class and indications are that another John Marshall is in our midst. “Ray” specializes in economic theories of Constitutional Law. W. GEORGE MURPHY Hawley, Pennsylvania “Petie” is Senior Class Historian and sure you’re not surprised are you, that a lad named Murphy is interested in politics ? He refuses to commit himself as to whether he will practice law. Possibly that depends upon whether his consti- tuents — God bless em ! — continue to return Mr. Rutherford to Congress, and consequently, George to his present position as the Congressman’s Secretary. iii S€I)IOR5 3M Eighty-nine terence McCracken Washington, D. C. B A 2 “Terry” McCracken, one of the boys from whom little was heard during the course of a term, apparently had no particular difficulty mastering the subjects. Nevertheless the “jitters” he ex- perienced before each exam were positively amaz- ing. After “prepping” at Devitt and Millard, National University finished the job. Incidently, “Terry” was further plagued with exams in the School of Economics and Government while pre- paring himself for the law. MARGUERITE McDOWELL Chillicothe, Missouri K B n Marguerite takes her law seriously and recent- ly quit her government job to work for a practic- ing attorney. She is a Kappa Beta Pi, was a mem- ber of the class Executive Committee and Secre- tary to the Cy Pres Club in her Junior year. This year she is Secretary to the Senior Class and Vice-President of the Cy Pres. She also repre- sented her class as maid of honor at the school ' s Docket Dance. FRANK REED McLAUGHLIN Arlington, Virginia 2 N A native Hoosier, more recently a Virginian whom we all recognize by that ever present smile. “Pop” has recently broadened his smile to a beam since he is now the proud father of twins. Frank is employed in the Arlington County Treasurer ' s office and expects to practice law in Virginia and District of Columbia. He is a grand gentleman and scholar. We wish him success in achieving his goal. DALE RICKERT McMICHAEL Wahpeton, North Dakota Dale, the Gregg speed artist has accumulated copious notes during his school career, reporting some lectures verbatim. He previously attended the North Dakota School of Science before com- ing to the Capital to take employment with the Civil Service Commission. Don’t let your short- hand get rusty, Dale. It ' s very handy in a court room. ml Wi 56J0IQRS m Ninety HOWARD THEODORE NEWLAND Manhattan Beach, California “Ted” really believes in adequate preparation, and before he entered National, he took prepara- tory work at North Carolina University, U.C.L.A. and Pasadena Junior College. While at National he served as a member of the Welfare Committee in the Senior year and is responsible for many of the excellent caricatures appearing in this publi- cation. He is determined to practice law, but is not certain as to the proper place. Yellow Dog, 1940. EARL ARTHUR NEWLON Prophetstown. Illinois Earl came to us on a transfer from Washington College of Law, proving class will tell. Employed as an adjudicator in S.S.B., he tells us he intends to use the legal knowledge gleaned from National University to help Madame Sec- retary or her successor. It is our prediction that the folks back in Prophetstown had better keep an eye on this young man. OSCAR HAIGHT NIELSON Burley, Idaho “Pete” represents the great potato State, and though his manner is mild and unassuming this “lion of the west” will someday, we hope, replace the recent great loss of the late Senator Borah. Before coming to National University, “Pete” received a degree from Albion State Normal, at- tended the University of Idaho and George Wash- ington. “Pete” is well qualified to practice law because of his splendid government experience as an Examiner with the FWA. WILLIAM HEYHURST NIXON Tulsa, Oklahoma B A 2 “Wild Bill Nixon from Oklahoma” — That’s what he was known as in the days back in Tulsa- town before he ever heard of the Rule in Shelley’s Case. When they roped him and moved him to Y ashington they had a hard time making him wear shoes and stockings and even go to school — Now look at him — knows all about the rule in Shelley’s Case, and a lot of other cases. He’s al- most a lawyer. 5€I IOJR5 M Ninety-one ONCKEN OWENS, JR. Washington, D. C. 2N Oncken Owens is another local boy who got the urge to study law but has no immediate inten- tion of using it as a means of livelihood, being presently engaged in the banking business. His previous training at Benjamin Franklin and Amer- ican Institute of Banking makes him especially qualified for the position he now holds. As a mem- ber of Sigma Nu Phi he has had the last word on the Finance Committee. CECIL DENNY PATTERSON Riverside, California “Pat”, that slender, studious young fellow who is always positive in his statements, is a printer at the GPO which probably accounts for his stead- fastness in view. “Pat” is never late for class but necessarily leaves early and it is well for Prof. Syme that he did not see fit to rub his fur for so doing. Hold tight to your legal address “Pat” because when you are ready for Congress you will have to have this connection. GERALD L. PHELPS Minneapolis, Minnesota “Jerry”, a clerk with the Interstate Commerce Commission, obtained his educational background at the University of Minnesota and at George Washington before enrolling at National. A ser- ious and conscientious student, he has held his grades well above the class average all during his course of study. Jerry would like to remain in Washington, but finds the call of his home state hard to resist; consequently, he is still un- certain concerning his future course. WENDELL DASHIELL PHILLIPS Los Angeles, California Wendell will long be remembered by his class- mates as the student whose pencil pointed toward the rostrum, and often forcibly called professors to task when they tried to slide by a difficult question without giving an adequate answer. He is now an examiner with the United States Em- ployees Compensation Commission, and undecided as to the future. That pointed finger could influ- ence many a jury, Wendell, if you entered active practice. Ninety -two HARRIET PIERCE Calais, Maine K B n Harriet has had much more success than her home state has in recent elections, having held the office of Treasurer in the Cy Pres Club dur- ing 1938-39. She is also a member of Kappa Beta Pi Sorority. Before entering National she attended the Washington School for Secretaries and gradu- ated from Calais Academy. She may practice law if marriage doesn’t intervene. CHARLES J. POWE New York, New York Charles studied at New York University before coming to Washington and launching his legal career at National University. He is currently employed by the GAO as an auditor. “Charlie” at present is one of National’s most eligible bache- lors. He hasn’t decided on practicing law but when he finds so many of his classmates shingles out, the lure of the law will get “Charlie” too. BEVERLY CRUMP PRATT Port Royal, Virginia Before “crossing the border” “Bev” attended Virginia Polytechnic Institute, and the Univer- sity of Virginia, and later the American Institute of Banking. He is now employed in a bank here. “Bev” is undecided about practicing law and we have a hunch that with this background and an LL.B. in addition, he will become an economic royalist. Whether he chooses finance or law, his success, we believe, is assured. JOHN HOWARD PRICE Waco, Texas 2 A K “Too Much Unnecessary Information” might, in some cases, be embarrassing. The records show former attendance at Washington College of Law. “Too Much Information” might mean to a busy person insufficient time or it might be construed as plain laziness — in any event we wish you the best of luck John. ml m 56I IORS ' I b lWiRBlg Ninety-three MARIE V. RAFTERY Washington, D. C. Marie came to us from St. Cecilia’s Academy and due to her sweet disposition rapidly became one of the best liked members of the class. After being in dry dock (Providence Hospital) during the summer of 1939 , she was welcomed back in time to complete her studies and graduate with us. Marie is a Docket Clerk at the Interstate Com- merce Commission. Since her entrance to National University she has been an active member of Cy Pres. ABRAHAM ROBINSON New York, New York Before coming to Washington to enter National University and incidentally to work for the Gen- eral Accounting Office, ‘‘Abe” obtained his B.B.A. degree from the College of the City of New York. An able student, “Abe’s” questions are always direct and pertinent. At present he does not in- tend to practice law. “Stand up Abe”, and accept our wishes for the success you so richly deserve. CHARLES ROBERT ROCK Irvington, New Jersey “Chuck”, a native of New Jersey, came to National by way of St. Benedict’s Preparatory School and Columbus University. He is now em- ployed as a clerk in the Department of Justice, and hasn’t made up his mind as to whether he will enter private practice or stick with the Justice De- partment. The entire class wishes him the best of luck in whichever course he takes. JEANETTE ROD Washington, D. C. I T T Jeanette makes grades as high as some of her clever hats. She is a native Washingtonian, an auditor in the Bureau of Internal Revenue, a member of Iota Tau Tau National Legal Sorority and the Cy Pres Club. She has always taken an acti e interest in class affairs and has never been timid expressing herself. Good luck to you Jeanette, and may success be yours. mmoRs M Ninety-four NATHAN JOSEPH ROSENBERG Washington, D. C. A B “Natie” acquired a secretarial diploma at Strayer College. That bit of training has proved valuable to him, since he is now a stenographer with the District Government. To date “Natie” is a bachelor, but how long he will remain so is a deep dark secret. Also known as “Rosy” he was scribe of the Alpha Beta Phi during 1938-1939, and during the past year served as Associate Justice of that Fraternity. HUGH EDWARD ROZELLE Ashland, Alabama Hugh is another Alabaman who longs for the home pastures as he definitely proclaims his in- tention to return to his native state to practice. Perhaps, who can tell, he will some day follow his famous uncle. Associate Justice Black, to a seat on the Supreme Court Bench. Hugh in his own right is quite a public speaker, having been quite active in debate while in his Freshman year at National. MAURICE RUBEN Chicago, Illinois Maurice is the proud possessor of the degree of B.S.C. from Northwestern University, and is em- ployed as an auditor by the United States Em- ployee’s Compensation Commission. Desiring no parts of a government career, this faithless fellow is waiting only until he passes the bar before he leaves Uncle Sam flat and hangs out his shingle here in Washington. ARTHUR RINGWALT RUPLEY, JR. Carlisle, Pennsylvania Arthur attended St. John’s College, Harrisburg Academy, and Emerson Institute before coming to National. He is engaged in the real estate business in Washington and says he plans to practice law in the District. A clientele in real estate should be a foundation for a most lucrative practice. “Art”, just keep in mind the Rule against Perpetuities. S joioRs y j? !a§= Ninety-five ROBERT JEROME SAKS Washington, D. C. One of those unique figures, a native Washing- tonian, blonde “Bob ’, the suave Houdini, is a source of worry to his associates. “Where’d Saks go?” cries “Cv” and “Sammy” retorts “In the bag.” “Bob” attended Strayer’s Accounting School before coming to National. As an office clerk for a local men’s clothing house he should have the “inside” on some clients when he begins the prac- tice of law here. FRANCES ELIZABETH SAYWELL Watts, Oklahoma k b n The Class will never forget the night when Carusi sent us all home early, because “Fran” walked out on him. Sa d Carusi, “The reason for my staying here no longer exists.” A member of Kappa Beta Pi Sorority, and the Cy Pres Club, “Fran” is one of the most popular girls in class. She works for the Treasury Department, and what was that crack Wineliell made about Government gals? Say you’re sorry, Walter. FRANCIS ANTHONY SCHROFF Arlington, Virginia “Buddy’ ’, as he is known to his friends, came from Washington and Lee High School to Na- tional Law School. He is at present employed as bookkeeper for a local plumbing supply firm (when is a bath tub part of the realty, “Bud”?). You may encounter that ques tion after you’ve hung out your shingle here in Washington. BENJAMIN SHAPIRO Washington, D. C. “Bennie” may not belong to royalty but lie’s a prince of a fellow. His cheery greetings in the hall have a ring of sincerity seldom found in the casual exchange of salutations. “Ben” is a Clerk in the General Accounting Office and has not yet decided whether he will practice law or stay in government. Wherever he may be though, that place will be brighter for his having passed. Sinn W s -dk rs Ninety -six PHILIP EDWARD SHAPIRO Philadelphia, Pennsylvania “Phil” from Philly is employed at the Navy Department. As Chairman of the Docket Dance he was primarily responsible for the success of the function at which we crowned our first Queen. One of the most enthusiastic of students, “Phil” studies law, thinks law, talks law, and just talks (with both hands). Most assuredly, here is one who will practice what he learns. Not married yet, but he’s only waiting on the word from “Dottie”. Yellow Dog , 194 0. SIMON SHERMAN Washington, D. C. A B “Sv”, the lucky boy, is law clerk for a local firm of attorneys, and will stay with the firm after his graduation. Having served as Marshal of his fraternity, Alpha Beta Phi, and as treasurer of the Inter-Fraternity Council, “Sy” is one of the more prominent members of our class. If he gets only one-hundredth as many clients as he now has friends, his future success is assured. Yellow Dog, 1940. PHILIP FERGUSON SHORE Reno, Nevada “Phil” comes from a town that should be a good one to go back to, for a lawyer. He has a B.A. from the University of Nevada and had some work at the University of California before coming to Washington as a Clerk in the House of Represen- tatives. Something tells us this young man is scheduled to make a name for himself in the legal world. GLENN KENNETH SHRIVER Littlestown, Pennsylvania Glenn is another accountant with a B.C.S. de- gree from Benjamin Franklin University and also attended Temple University. As a member of the Audit Committee of our class last year, he demon- strated his ability by checking the voluminous records and quickly analyzing the intricate ac- counting system employed by the Treasurer and promptly rendering a report. Glenn intends to forsake the Keystone State and practice law in Washington. Ninety-seven m .sejHOR.S m I11P5 GERALD EMERY SIBLEY North Kansas City, Missouri A long, tall boy from Missouri. He juggles freight tariffs with the greatest of ease in the Claims Division of the General Accounting Office. “Sib” has not yet decided as to whether he will practice law, but we think that when he sees the bright and hopeful shingles of his comrades spring- ing up all over town, his will be forthcoming too. ROBERT EUCLID SILCOTT Arlington, Virginia “Bob” is a Review Examiner in the General Accounting Office, is married, and has one child. During his junior year, “Bob” served as a member of the Executive Council of the class. Further, affiant saith not — but we’ll add our prediction that he will be up close to the top whether it be in private legal practice or in the Claims Division, GAO. NEHEMIAH SILVER Philadelphia, Pennsylvania A B f “Nick” — the walking address book, conducted a secret “lonely hearts” bureau. “Nick” and his “listen”, “let’s talk” could be seen in a conversa- tion “confiding” in any corner, anytime. Beside these achievements “Nick” attended George Wash- ington, Catholic University and Sioux Falls Col- lege at Sioux Falls, South Dakota. He is a mem- ber of Alpha Beta Phi and intends to practice law in the District — move over Mr. Peyser. ALICE JOESTING SMITH Bethesda, Maryland K B n “Joe” attended Chicago and George Washing- ton Universities before coming to National. Imbued with the true civic spirit she has been a member of three committees, Welfare, Social, and Execu- tive, during her three years here. She is also an active member of the Cy Pres Club. With all these responsibilities she still finds time to make many friends and to serve the Veterans’ Admin- istration as a valued employee. ati r s djors i ijif Ninety-eight CHESTER D. SMITH Pocahontas, Arkansas Before realizing his possibilities as a barrister “Chet’ ' was a professor in one of the better high schools in Arkansas. Since undertaking the study of law, he has taken an active interest in class affairs acting as Chairman of the Executive Com- mittee during our Junior year. At present he is a Field Examiner for Civil Service Commission but his classmates predict a bright future in the held of law. EDWARD MOORE SMITH Arlington. Virginia Apex Honor Society, B A ' l Here is a fellow who is sincerly liked by all who know him. In all student activities, “Ed ' ’ has always taken an active and useful part; he served on the Constitution Committee in the Freshman year, and on the Executive Committee as a Senior, and is a member of the Kappa Alpha social and Beta Lambda Sigma Legal Fraternities, as well as the Apex Honor Society. Yellow Dog, 1940. KENNETH BRAZIER SMITH Rock Island. Illinois A quiet easy-going fellow who comes from that large Smith family, “Ken” was always in class, digging in seriously, perfecting his knowledge of the law. His always beaming smile and genial slap on the back helped many a fellow student who was becoming a bit discouraged. When “Ken” hangs out his shingle in Illinois the old timers had better pep up considerably. MARK H. SMYTHE Mitchell. South Dakota Apex Honor Society, SX i) Mark attended George Washington University and later acquired a B.C.S. at Benjamin Franklin L ' niversitV; before matriculating at National. As treasurer of the Junior class and member of Sigma Xu Phi he has deservingly won many friends dur- ing his career here. Mark s outstanding trait is the firmness with which he holds his convictions. Sufficient to say that he is a gentleman and a friend worth having. Yellow Dog, 1940. s€Pioqs Lac Ninety-nine SIDNEY LOUIS SNEIDER West Palm Beach, Florida From down where the balmy breezes blow and the palms wave to and fro — came Sidney to get an LL.B. at old National University. He previous- ly attended Oglethorpe University and Columbus University. “Sid” works for the Railroad Retire- ment Board as correspondence clerk, but intends to practice in Florida. With the climate we have here, we can’t say that we blame him. ABRAHAM ROY SPALTER New York, New York A B A serious-minded studious fellow but a real friend, we can not bring ourselves to bestow any abbreviated appellation except Mister Spalter. The moustache only lends the dignity which should accompany one of his attainments. He attended George Washington University and is employed with the Federal Power Commission. GERTRUDE STONE Brooklyn, New York Gertrude attended Hunter College before com- ing to Washington to work in the Department of Agriculture. She has always been interested in class affairs and served as a member of the Executive Committee in our Junior year. She is also a member of the Cy Pres Club. She is undecided as to whether she will practice law but her many friends predict her success if she does. RICHARD HUME STRINGFELLOW New York City, New York 2 N Prior to entering National, “Dick” attended Strayer Business College, the American Institute of Banking, and Washin gton College of Law. A member of Sigma Nu Phi and intensely interested in class activities, “Dick” is always willing to lend a hand when needed. As a member of the Who Knows Committee, he was originator of the fa- mous “P.I.P.” slogan. Upon graduation “Dick” in- tends to practice law somewhere or anywhere. Yellow Dog , 1940. One Hundred atl i geraoRsi ijg mijm EARL H. STUDY Muncie, Indiana True to his name, Earl devotes every spare moment to school work. He and “Hal” put more time on their Moot Court case than most attorneys do for a fee. Earl finally selected National after having tried Ball State of Indiana, George Wash- ington University and Ohio State University. This wandering Hoosier is a member of Tau Kappa Epsilon and the Masonic Lodge and is employed as Administrative Assistant at Federal Security Agency. DONALD CHARLES SUTCLIFFE Milbank, South Dakota 2N Contrasting opinions question whether “Don” is guilty of grand larceny or embezzlement. The crime: Stealing from our midst during the Fresh- man year a very charming young lady, whom he did take unto himself in Holy Matrimony. This nefarious crime is yet unpunished, the perpetrator having been released into Dorothy’s custody, is basking in matrimonial bliss. His Brothers in Sig- ma Nu Phi are ashamed of his offense but proud of his staunch friendship and excellent grades. Yellow Dog, 1940. GEORGE BENJAMIN THOMPSON Morganfield, Kentucky 2N ( As a member of the Docket Staff, and Social Committee, George has rendered much valuable service. Add to this the office of Second Vice- Chancellor of Sigma Nu Phi, and the ability to maintain excellent grades throughout his stay at National, and you have the reason George is so well liked and respected by all his numerous friends. May his career as an attorney be as successful as his career as a student. ROBERT BRUCE THOMPSON Seattle, Washington “Tommy” wended his way clear across the con- tinent to become an auditor in the United States Employees Compensation Commission and a stu- dent at National University stopping awhile at Ben Franklin University. Now that Dr. Pergler has erased state lines for him, perhaps he will feel he can serve the home state just as well by remaining on these shores. He is a member of the National University Masonic Club. W l 56DIORS M One Hundred One WILLIAM ROBERT THOMPSON Oak Hill, West Virginia “Bill”, unlike Caesar at the Rubicon, did not definitely commit himself when he crossed the Potomac to enter National University. Now profit- ably employed as an auditor by the General Ac- counting Office, he can’t decide whether to remain there, or hang up a shingle and look for clients. In either field, his many friends in school wish him the best of luck, and confidently predict success. GEOFFREY MATTHEW THORNETT Washington, I). C. Geoffrey M. Thornett was probably the most photographed student of his class, occupying the position of Secretary to the D. C. Board of Com- missioners. By frequently handling the “big seal” he really got into the study of the law, not to mention all those pictures. Geoffrey is an authority on real property and equity, this being evidenced by his running away with the honors in Professor Barse’s Review. DAVID WOODS TOMPKINS Alexandria, Virginia 2 A K “Tommy” has an M.C.S. degree from Benja- min Frank’in University which is helpful in his position as Accountant for a local firm. A mem- ber of Sigma Delta Kappa, “Tommy” doesn’t intend, just now, to practice law but will probably find his legal knowledge helpful in the commercial world, amortizing the expense of acquiring an LL.B. over a long career as a successful ac- countant. THOMAS LEO TOOLE Wilkes Barre, Pennsylvania “Tommy” acquired a degree in Accounting at Rider College and also attended the University of Baltimore. He is employed by the Interstate Com- merce Commission. He’s still single girls ! That love of accountancy would probably be of valuable aid in keeping a family budget on an even keel. We do not know whether Thomas intends to practice law but if he does we predict an early recognition of his talents by potential clients. One Hundred Two ScirsgraoRsr iii a JOHN GRAVES TURNER Little Rock; Arkansas “ Johnny”; a former team-mate of Slinging Sammy Baugh at Texas Christian, is with the Press Intelligence Division, Executive Office of the President. After attending G.W.U. for a time, he came to National to complete his legal educa- tion. After receiving his LL.B. and successfully hurdling the bar exam, John plans to bid all this farewell and hie himself to Fort Worth, Texas to hang out a shingle. JULES DEAN WADE Philadelphia, Pennsylvania It should be spelled “Jewels” for he is really a gem, polished and smooth, but not flashy. Jules is employed in Soil Conservation Service as an investigator and outside of that his principal in- terest is the study of law. Watch him crack that bar exam on the first attempt and begin soon to attract clients by the score — even if he has to add a van dyke to that little moustachio. VIRGINIA MAURINE WALLGREN Evanston, Illinois K B n “Ginny” got her pre-legal work at North- western University. She is secretary to an attorney, and plans to practice here. This energetic lass is a Kappa Beta Pi, Chairman of the Student Re- lationship Committee, Secretary of the Docket, and was Chairman of our Social Committee last year. Even professors take special notice of our favorite blonde. Who made Mohundro and Carusi stop between syllables ? Who made Garrett fall upstairs ? WILLIAM LORD WARREN Washington, D. C. “Bill”, one of Jim Farley’s distinguished as- sistants in the Post Office Department, received his pre-legal training at another local college, Catholic University. The study of law is really serious business with “Bill”. He intends to use his legal knowledge as a means of supporting his wife and two children.

With a scrambled election the first order of things and after many arguments and speeches we finally elected the following officers: Stanley G. Mattern, President; David T. O’Neal, Vice-President; Marian Harlan, Secretary; Wendall W. Camp- bell, Treasurer; Robert West, Sergeant-at-Arms ; and Charles Dearborn, Historian. Hardly had the smoke settled when the campaign for the sale of Dockets had begun and we found ourselves deep into a Miss Attorney Contest, pulling for this girl and that girl, with the result being in favor of Miss E. Margaret Lamoreaux as Junior finalist in the contest and Miss Marian Harlan, runner-up. We publicly acknowledge our choice for she became the “First Queen of National University.” With the sale of review briefs we have managed to keep a somewhat func- tioning treasury and even made a profit from the Junior Prom. With a well organized class, a successful Junior Prom, the class year success- ful financially, the first Queen chosen from our class, a Debating Society sponsored by members of the class, we the Class of 1941, look forward to an even more successful Senior year. Charles F. Dearborn Historian KIPIOJR5 One Hundred Ten The Calf path One day through the primeval wood, A calf walked home as good calves should. But made a trail all bent askew, A crooked trail, as all calves do. Since then three hundred years have fled, And I infer the calf is dead. But still he left behind his trail, And thereby hangs my moral tale. The trail was taken up next day By a lone dog that passed that way; And then a wise bell-wether sheep Pursued the trail o’er vale and steep. And drew the flock behind him too, As good bell-wethers always do. And from that day, o’er hill and glade, Through those old woods a path was made. And many men wound in and out, And dodged and turned and bent about, And uttered words of righteous wrath, Because ’twas such a crooked path; But still they followed — do not laugh — The first migrations of that calf, And through this winding wood-way stalked Because he wobbled when he walked. This forest path became a lane, That bent and turned and turned again; This crooked lane became a road, Where many a poor horse with his load Toiled on beneath the burning sun, And traveled some three miles for one, And thus a century and a half They trod the footsteps of that calf. The years passed on in swiftness fleet, The road became a village street; And this before men were aware, A city’s crowded thoroughfare, And soon the central street was this Of a renowned metropolis; And men two centuries and a half Trod in the footsteps of that calf. Each day a hundred thousand rout Followed this zigzag calf about And o’er his crooked journey went The traffic of a continent. A hundred thousand men were led By one calf near three centuries dead. They followed still his crooked way, And lost one hundred years a day; For thus such reverence is lent To well-established precedent. A moral lesson this might teach Were I ordained and called to preach; For men are prone to go it blind Along the calf-paths of the mind, And work away from sun to sun To do what other men have done. They follow in the beaten track, And out and in, and forth and back, And still their devious course pursue, To keep the path that others do. They keep the path a sacred groove, Along which all their lives they move. But how the wise old wood-gods laugh, Who saw the first primeval calf. Ah, many times this tale might reach — But I am not ordained to preach. — Author Unknown Tar IOB5 re: One Hundred Eleven junior Class president’s JWessage a llow me to extend my most hearty and sincere good wishes to the class of ’41 and my thanks and appreciation for the honor and privilege of being elected as your leader. I feel very strongly that our class is making excellent progress in scholastic attainment and equally as well in that important phase of school life, namely, extra- curricular activities. Through the efforts of the Scholarship Committee a Debating Team has been established, plans to invite outside speakers to talk on fields of law pertinent to our classroom work and other projects to more fully acquaint the stu- dent with the practical application of the law outside of the lecture room. The importance of studying and obtaining a comprehensive knowledge of the law is highly important. This may be shown by the high enrollment in the law schools and bv the many important positions in government and business occupied by men with legal training. In addition, however, it is of equal value that we have as an objective the continued and increasing level of school morale and cooperation with our fellow class mates so that the friendships which we have made and the high ideals of our class will be perpetuated long after we have closed the portals of our academic career. In the spirit of these remarks and with many thanks for your fine cooperation, I wish you every success throughout the school terms and in the years to come. Sincerely yours, Stanley G.

But not for long. As Will Rogers said, “A certain amount of fleas is good for a dog, because it keeps him so busy scratching that he has not time to worry about being a dog.” We soon were so busy studying, briefing cases, and otherwise pursuing the fundamental principles of Jurisprudence that there was no place in our minds or consciousness for our former fears. Election time was heralded late in the fall term by groups of students gather- ing before, between and after classes discussing various candidates and policies. “Soap-box oratory” flared forth and newly acquainted students would rise, with little or no provocation, and expound upon some doctrine of their own. Principal groups got together in an effort to clinch the election and eliminate other candidates, but a conservative tendency and the natural stubborness of certain fairminded stu- dents soon undermined the workableness of such tactics. Election night found each one fairly settled on his own convictions resulting in the voting being well split up. Except for the oflice of Vice-President, which Milo Wilson carried with a proud majority, a secondary run-off was necessary to disclose the election of Harvie Belser, President; Gay Burns, Secretary; Kenneth Wallace, Treasurer; Wade Slier- rier, Sergeant-at-Arms ; and Ira Reese, Historian. Preparation for semester examinations took precedence over further considera- tions of class administration and class functions at this time. With the beginning of the Winter term the President, in a meeting with the other class officers, appointed students to the various committees. It was decided at this time to adopt the Con- stitution of the previous Freshman class. A dazzling and long-to-be-remembered Freshman Prom held at the National Press Club on February 16 captured our interest and enthusiasm for only too short a time. Congratulation to Miss Mabel Stockton, our representative in the PIP contest for Miss Attorney, 1940. We may well be proud of the class spirit exhibited in this connection and of our contribution to this Yearbook. All of us have developed a sincere attachment for National University and have strengthened our convictions and determination to forge through the course with flying colors deriving the maximum from it in associations as well as knowledge gained, and making the old school proud of its Class of ’42. Ira F. “Jerry” Reese, Historian LEGAL MAXIMS That which does not appear will not be presumed to exist. It is the consent of the parties, not their cohabitation, that constitutes marriage. The honesty and integrity of a judge cannot be questioned, but his decision may be impugned for error either of law or of fact. He who considers merely the letter of an instrument goes only skin deep. One Hundred Twenty-six -jrs YOU WELL KNOW, among the great compensations enjoyed by students attend- C 1 11 ing this school are the precious friendships formed here. These friendships grow up without political, religious or racial affiliation, and in some instances closely rival the brotherly affection of Damon and Pythias and other comrades of legend. The Freshmen in Section II, of National University’s Law Department, have readily accepted the opportunity to share each other’s friendly associations — for they are aware that from time immemorial one of the outstanding traditions of the Bar has been good fellowship. The above picture is prima facia evidence of the warm, fraternal and frivolous spirit which prevails before, between and after classes. This altogether obvious frivolity, however, is merely a mantle behind which we hide from the alien-world the many-sided-genius of the class members. We have in our section many who are destined to be among America’s outstanding Barristers, while others will, in later years, liberally contribute competent leadership to our country both in the Judicial, Legislative and Executive fields of the State and National governments. Members of the faculty appearing on the rostrum in the picture, reading from left to right, are: Professors Hill, Canfield, Boardman, Dean Pergler and Parkinson. Michael J. Walsh Section Two , Freshman Class One Hundred Twenty-seven pmsrKM ' iT Class president’s Message e have begun the study of the subjects of law, and by the end of the scho- lastic year we should have acquainted ourselves with the basic principles in- L herent in the subjects undertaken so far. If we have, then we shall be able to grapple with confidence the subjects remaining in our course of study here at National Universitv. We shall always be indebted to our instructors for their interest in the class, and for the fruits of their experience in the law, which they have expounded with brevity and forcefulness in their lectures. No one realizes more fully the value of the word “appliance” than we do, and with the benefit of such knowledge we are going to make use of the word not only in Law School, but in actual p ractice as well. With all past accomplishments behind us we are ready to look to the future with the hope that we may be of some use to our country and its people through the medium which we have undertaken to claim as our profession.

Within the last few months the Univeisity has also been undergoing a change. You, yourselves, in stepping forth as University graduates will have materially changed your status in the world in which you live and move. However, this transition is, fortunately for you, not as violent a process as for the average American graduate of the average American university. On entering the University, you as adults had, by your own efforts, already made your own way, and the University has merely provided you with better equipment with which to continue. We believe and hope that this equipment will be utilized by you not only to the benefit of yourselves, but also to that of the world in which you live. This is the real test of its worth. Accept my congratulations and sincere good wishes.

This program was inaugurated to meet the present day requirements of sound pre-professional training which is to serve as an educational foundation for Amer- ican vouth. The School of Economics and Government was first organized in the fall of 1923, by the Board of Trustees at the instance of Chancellor Charles F. Carusi, 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. To the students of economics and government, Washington, the seat of the Nation’s business, offers special advantages. It is a vast political, social and eco- nomic laboratory to be made use of according to the energy and will of those who may profit by observing its processes at close range. The faculty of the Junior Col- lege Division, conforming with Nati onal tradition, has been chosen with the view of bringing out to the fullest, the advantages of Washington. The present faculty consist of a nucleus of full-time instructors and a group of government specialists and research executives whose specialized knowledge is of great value to the stu- dent in the field of advanced investigation and research. The Student Council for 1940, of the Junior College Division, working with its faculty adviser, Dr. Louis Charles Smith, has initiated a program of extra-cur- ricular activities which we hope will be a goal for all future classes.

No doubt such an innovation caused the then faculty and students much L trepidation. We men of the present student body are firmly of the opinion that this was a wise and progressive step. We cannot conceive of the University without the heartening and enlivening presence of the ladies. They keep us more in- terested in class and social affairs, encourage us by studying with us, and con- sistentlv make better marks than we do. We now, for the first time, publicly honor our fair colleagues. As an inadequate expression of our esteem for them all we have selected one as ' ‘Miss Attorney of 1940” and Queen of the Docket. Finalists in the Personality Contest were Miss Helen Haynes, Senior; Miss E. Margaret Lamoreaux, Junior; Miss Mabel Stockton, Freshman; and their run- ners-up were Miss Marguerite McDowell, Miss Marian Harlan, and Miss Gay Burns. The judges of the contest met the finalists at a luncheon and there questioned them on Intelligence. At the Docket Dance the same judges passed upon the question of Personality and Pulchritude. The verdict of the judges, based on the three re- quisites, was for the Junior representative, E. Margaret Lamoreaux. The homage which we pay to her she well deserves. She indeed has the ne- cessary requirements of Personality Intelligence, and Pulchritude which we de- mand that our “Queen” possess. LONG LIVE OUR GRACIOUS QUEEN, MARGARET I !! JWasonic Qlub I n the fall term of 1920, the enthusiasm and civic spirit of Masonic members of the student body of National University led them to lay the foundation for the present Masonic Club. Generously aided and encouraged by the Late Dr. Charles F. Carusi and members of the faculty, those pioneers of N. U. Masonic Club organized for the traditionally Masonic dual purpose of promoting good fellowship among all students, and of providing material assistance to deserving Masonic students. Since its inception the Club has included in its active and honorary member- ship many outstanding brothers who have distinguished themselves in the legal pro- fession in the District of Columbia and nearly every state in the Union. In accordance with its dual purpose of promoting good fellowship and con- crete assistance, the Club sponsors one or more social functions each term, and furnishes two scholarships to deserving Masons who, otherwise, might not be able to secure a legal education. The Scholarships in Law were made possible through the consideration and cooperation of our late Brother Charles F. Carusi. In add i- tion, the Club, through the courtesy of Dean Pergler and the late Chancellor Hayden Johnson, now awards two tuition scholarships in the School of Economics and Government to deserving students, whether Masons or not. Among outstanding social events of the Club during the year 1939-1940 should be mentioned the get-together in the Fall, at which Brother Charles Krey was the genial, generous host, and the one in the Spring at which the Club was host to faculty, current and alumni members of the Club.

On May 5, 1932, the Club was duly incorporated and a charter granted in the City of Washington, District of Columbia. From the group of charter members, Misses Jane Elizabeth Newton, Donna M. Davis, Janette Wilensky, and Anna M. Lombard, there has evolved a live and growing organization which now has an active membership of more than 50 stu- dents, and a large honorary membership of alumni. All women students of the University are eligible for membership in the Cy Pres Club. Associate membership in the Club is open to women students in the School of Economics and Government. The purpose of the Club is to help its members advance in the study of the law, to promote closer friendships, and to stimulate the members to a keener interest and deeper understanding of the legal profession. The banquet, held on February 22, and the spring breakfast, for installation of officers, are annual social affairs. One of the most prominent of the honorary members is the Honorable Ellen K. Raedy, Judge of the Municipal Court of the District of Columbia, who, in 1939, became a member of the faculty of the Law School.

Its members are drawn from the ranks of those students who have reached at least their Junior year and who have been especially distinguished in some branch of student activities. The purpos e of the society is to band into one body those undergraduates, who, by their zealous and consistent activity in University interests, have merited the honor of public recognition, in order thereby to promote the welfare of the Uni- versity by all the means at its command, to aid and encourage student activities and to build up a stronger college spirit among the student body. Such an organization as this cosmopolitan, distinctive society conducted as it is upon broad lines of general helpfulness both to the students and the institution is of no mean value to a university. It offers an incentive to earnest participation in college activities and will go far to keep up a high standard of endeavor in publications, debating, and class activities or enterprises which are such essential elements of true college life.

Yeaman Hot Dog!! jT V entlemen of the jury, the best friend a man has in this world may turn 2jr against him and become his enemy. His son or daughter whom he has reared with loving care may prove ungrateful. Those who are nearest and dearest to us — those whom we trust with our happiness and our good name — may become traitors to their faith. The money that a man has he may lose. It flies away from him, perhaps when he needs it most. A man’s reputation may be sacrificed in a moment of ill-considered action. The people who are prone to fall on their knees to do us honor when success is with us may be the first to throw the stone of malice when failure settles its cloud upon our heads. The one absolute, unselfish friend that man can have in this selfish world — the one that never deserts him, the one that never proves ungrateful or treacherous — is his dog. Gentlemen of the jury, a man’s dog stands by him in prosperity and in poverty, in health and in sickness. He will sleep on the cold ground, where the wintry winds blow and the snow drives fiercely, if only he can be near his master’s side. He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer, he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of the world. He guards the sleep of his pauper master as if he were a prince. When riches take wings and reputation falls to pieces he is as constant in his love as the sun in its journey through the heavens. If fortune drives the master forth an outcast in the world, friendless and homeless, the faithful dog asks no higher privilege than that of accompanying him to guard against danger, to fight against his enemies. And when the last scene of all comes, and death takes the master in its embrace, and his body is laid away in the cold ground, no matter if all other friends pursue their way, there by his graveside will the noble dog be found, his head between his paws, his eyes sad but open in alert watchfulness, faithful and true even to death.

The subjects for de- bate were leading cases taken from classroom work. On March 27 a team composed of Clyde Gartley (Senior Class) and Harry Gaberman (Junior Class) engaged in a debate with The College of the City of New York on the question “Resolved that the United States should follow a policy of strict economic and military isolation toward all nations outside the Western Hem- isphere engaged in armed international or civil conflict”, winning bv a unanimous decision. Plans are being formulated in order to schedule debates with other univer- sities and possibly a radio debate during the school year of 1910-41. One Hundred Seventy-six IM w M M 1 " iPratenttfes Sigma Du phi T he Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity (Legal) was organized at National University in 1902 and was incorporated by an Act of Congress, February 12, 1903. These high ethical ideals — the upholding of truth and justice, a true brother- hood in the law, a proper reverence for the courts, and a seeking for the true meaning of the law — were the fundamental principles that the fourteen founders of Sigma Nu Phi took from the oldest English legal society, “The Order of the Coif,” and sought to inculcate and perpetuate in the membership of this organization. From the date of incorporation Sigma Nu Phi has made unwavering progress. At present there are twenty-eight active chapters chartered in law schools through- out the country and eleven alumni chapters that comprise a brotherhood of almost five thousand. It is appropriate, therefore, that we, the members of Joseph H. Choate (Al- pha) Chapter, pay tribute to the Founders for the success achieved by adherence to their high and worthy aims and pledge ourselves anew to maintain their paragons of character and scholarship, whereby we shall become more learned in the Law and more honored and valued by this ancient and noble profession.

Originating with a charter membership of six, it has truly become national in scope. There are now twenty-eight active, and ten alumni chapters throughout the United States, from Maryland and the District of Columbia to Cali- fornia, 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 Saunders Parrish and Talbot Sin- clair, at the twenty-fifth annual convention, and The Silver Anniversary, held in Chattanooga, Tennessee, December 29, 1939. This year has been a very successful one for Mu Chapter in promoting co- operation and good fellowship in the Inter-Fraternity Council. Mu Chapter held it’s initiation ceremony, banquet and entertainment in the Kennedy Warren Hotel on January 15, 1940. At that time 10 new members were initiated. Mu Chapter is holding another initiation banquet and dance before the school term ends. 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 having been granted by the present Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States.

Alpha Beta Phi has always endeavored to live up to the implications of its name as a legal fraternity. One means of accomplishing this has been through or- ganization-sponsored debates and essay contests on legal subjects. These competi- tive pursuits have served the two-fold purpose of keeping the whole membership thinking in legal lines and also to bring out latent powers of oratory and composi- tion in the participants. Alpha Beta Phi has sought to complement formal legal instruction by informal legal discussions: it has sought to serve — and successfully so — as a means to the attainment of social and professional objectives envisioned by aspiring young men. By means of gathering in one group those of a common purpose, Alpha Beta Phi has carved itself a respected niche in the professional and social order of Wash- ington, and the members have invariably performed those fraternal acts which could only reflect favorably upon their organization.

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-Fra- ternitv Council of National University was drawn up and submitted and, on the tenth day of February, was adopted by the following fraternities and has since been in active organization for a year: Alpha Beta Phi Phi Beta Gamma Sigma Delta Kappa Beta Lambda Sigma The constitution provides that the council consist of two representatives from each fraternity, the present representatives and officers being: President J. Patrick Gallagher Vice-President Francis G. Yeaman Secretary Nehemia Silver Treasurer William H. Harper, Jr. Alpha Beta Phi Simon Sherman Beta Lambda Sigma P. Baxter Davis Phi Beta Gamma Ralph E. Daugherty Sigma Delta Kappa John F. Scholl 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 Inter- Fraternitv Council is pledged to further the best interests of the University itself, and foster those ideals of legal training foremost in American tradition.

Do you ever go and visit, that good brother who is sick, Or leave the work to just a few, then talk about that clique.

INTERNATIONAL ) T he first legal sorority in the worlds Kappa Beta Pi was founded in 1908 at Kent College of Law in Chicago. The founders organized to form a legal sorority with the express object of thereby promoting “a higher professional standard among the women law students . . . and to strengthen by educational and social enjoyments the time that binds us.” In 1934 Kappa Beta Pi was admitted to the Conference of Law Fraternities and in 1925 the first legal sorority became the first international legal sorority, establishing a chapter at Osgood Hall Law School in Toronto, Canada. Today there are members of Kappa Beta Pi in France, England and Germany, China, South Africa and Brazil. Members of Kappa Beta Pi hold judicial and other posi- tions of honor in the various States. Some wear the silk of King’s Counsellor in London and Toronto. Judge Ellen K. Raedy of the Municipal Court of the District of Columbia and first woman member of the faculty of National University is a Kappa, being a graduate of National and a member of Omicron Chapter, and the “first lady” of Kappa Beta Pi, Judge Florence Allen, is the first woman to be raised to the bench of a Federal Circuit Court of Appeals, being a Judge of that Court in the Sixth Circuit. Kappa Beta Pi establishes chapters only in schools on the approved list of the American Bar Association. Nevertheless the sorority has forty-six student chap- ters in the United States and abroad, and eight alumni chapters. Omicron Chapter, established at National University in 1921 is the largest of the chapters. In conjunction with the University Omicron Chapter supports at National three scholarships each year for woman students. The Chapter maintains a small library for its members at the law school, and members of Kappa Beta Pi are active in all the affairs of the school.

INTERNATIONAL ) Installed July 1, 1928 — Alpha Lambda Chapter P hi Delta Delta Legal Sorority was founded upon ideals of justice, wisdom, love, loyalty, and truth. Its purpose is to promote the highest standard of professional ethics and culture among women in law schools and in the legal profession. Upon the petition of five young women of vision and high scholastic attain- ment, law students at the University of Southern California at Los Angeles, the Phi Delta Delta Legal Sorority, Alpha Chapter, was incorporated under the laws of California on November 11, 1911. Chapters have since been installed in nearly all of the leading eo-educational law schools in the United States and Canada, with foreign associates in India, Egypt, Denmark, Austria, Portugal, the Netherlands and Mexico. At the present time there are fifty-four undergraduate and alumnae chapters, with a total membership of sixteen hundred. The sorority has an Endowment Fund, a large part of which is reserved for scholastic loans to students who need assistance in order to complete their law courses. Some of the prominent members are Mrs. Mabel Walker Willebrandt, Hon- orary President of the sorority and former Assistant Attorney General of the United States, Honorable Ruth Bryan Rhode, former congress-woman from Florida and ex-minister to Denmark, Judge Fay Bentley of the Juvenile Court of the Dis- trict of Columbia, Honorable Georgia Bullock, Judge of the Superior Court of Cali- fornia, who was a founder of the sorority, Miss Stella Akin and Miss Helen Carloss, Special Assistants to the Attorney General of the United States, Judge Lucy Ho- worth of the U. S. Veterans Administration Board of Appeals, Judge Marion Har- ron of the U. S.

Reports L. ed. now consists of 47 books containing 1 to 304 U. S. Reports. Originally planned to meet the situation where economy of shelf space is of prime importance the saving in labor and material enables us to market this edition at a remarkably low price. | Printed from the plates of the famous L. ed. on thin paper of great opacity, the workman- ship of this set of U. S. Supreme Court Reports is of the h ighest quality. The first 70 books of U. S. L. ed. (single volumes of official U. S. 1-271) are bound in 35 books. Volumes 71 to 82 are the identical volumes of the famous L. ed. This makes a total of 47 volumes con- taining all the decisions of the Court officially reported in 304 volumes or more than six vol- umes of U. S. Reports per volume of this com- pact set.

It embodies a knowledge of printing, engraving, binding, and arranging in methodical manner, material submitted, for which we, as editors of college annuals, are seldom prepared. Through the long hours of arduous tasks, bitter disappointments, conflict of study and whatnot, a reliance must be had upon a large number of people who will cooperate to the fullest extent. It is my intention to mention a few of those persons who have helped make this publication whatever success it might be. To my friend, advisor and counselor, Dean Eugene Carusi, I give my whole- hearted thanks for the everlasting support from school and faculty and himself during the entire period of experimental situations of the Docket. To Mr. Jack Gold, of the Collegiate Publishing Co. and Miss Thelma Keebler of Buckingham Studios for their continued effort goes my lasting gratitude. Future editors and staff members should be certain to enlist their aid in publishing the Dockets that are to come. To Brother Kitterman, Business Manager, words or pictures could not begin to express my feelings for his aid in everything that we attempted to do. As all you students know, Dick, had that never-ending smile, always that same attitude to forge ahead and add support. Thanks, Dick old boy, it has been more than a pleasure. To our Queen, Miss Margaret Lamoreaux, as Junior Aide to the Editor, acting as secretary when we were without one, as rewrite, typist, editor, practically every position on the staff, I say, “Thanks a million, Margaret,” and my advice to the Junior Class, be sure to put Miss Lamoreaux on the Docket Staff for 1941. To Earl Cox, Associate Editor, who after two attacks of illness, came diving right into the hard work before us more than willing to do his share. Certainly we could not have gone to press without “The Judge”. To those four men of the Photographic staff, Bill Cochrane, Bill Finley, Bill Conover and C. G. Davis goes an expression of gratitude for the splendid coopera- tion in picture taking and picture mounting that undoubtably these few lines will not cover adequately. The entire snapshot section is an excellent example of this hard work and energy. To Miss Mabel Farmer, who acted as Special Staff Artist, we do homage as they would for “Allah”, for it was she that enabled the staff to carry out our theme in art work. No one person worked any harder than Jimmy Hobbs, and Chris Moritz, keepers of the contest books, and Bill Howell, that advertiser seller-upper, Bill Harper, accountant for the staff, J. Patrick Gallagher, our own technical advisor, and Pearl Mount, Social Editor. Every member of the staff of “The Docket for 1940” has done their part, and mention should be made and thanks given to Carl Garrett. Mark Smythe, Oscar Bryan, Dick Stringfellow, Clyde Davis for their work on the “Who Knows Committee”, and to Phil Shapiro, Chairman of the Docket Dance. Phil, with so much nervous energy, proved beyond a reasonable doubt that his choice as Chairman of the dance was above expectations for success. Also those Tzvo Hundred Fifty-one Sunday workers on the Senior quips, I doubly thank, J. B. Marshall, Tom Eastman, Clyde Gartley, George Thompson, Roy and Verne Hoffman, Hugh Jones, Bill Har- per, Frank Yeaman, Pat Gallagher and all other helpers. To Miles E. Magargel, acting as Chief of Liason on the staff, working on the “W.K.” committee and Dance Committee were incidentals to the many favors suggested and accomplished by “Mac”. To Tom Eastman, our Feature Editor, I can’t begin to say thanks, he’s the fellow all of us would like to be. As a staff member, Tom, helped with every depart- ment of the book, night, days or Sundays, we found him always willing to help to- ward success. And last, but not least, our President, George W. Carter, hanging over us like a hawk to see that all was accomplished, suggesting, cooperating, and in reality serving his faithfulness to the class by doing those things, has helped make this book what it is. It is my wish that the Senior Class and other students in the University may keep this volume as a memento of unprecedented activities in the University so that in later years, looking back over the annuls via “The Docket for 1940” they might get some pleasure and satisfaction knowing that at least an attempt was made to describe in words and pictures a short history of their lives while at National University.
