April 10, 1875 — September 17, 1940 Roger O ' Donnell received his law degrees at National University and was a member of the faculty since 1914. National students will remember Professor O ' Donnell for his homespun wit and his ability to interpret the subjects of Torts and Common Law Pleading to embryo lawyers. He was a lovable, kindly, delightful man. All who knew him closely are enriched by the priceless mem- ories and ideals he left behind — all who studied under him could not be other than better by reason of his years amongst us. I 1 II E II O K I 1 II ERNEST WILLARD GIBSON, LL.D. December 29, 1871 — June 20, 1940 The death of Ernest Willard Gibson, Senator from the State of Vermont, removed from the Senate of the United States one of the outstanding Members of that Body, and from the Faculty of National University one of its most able professors. He was quiet and calm but always effective. He was a typical American, and his life covered a wide range of activities. Throughout his busy career he served his State in many official capacities, and he served his country as a Colonel in the World War. Now that Senator Gibson has gone, his ability, his fidelity, his patriotic record, his devotion to duty, will all loom large in the memory of those who are privileged to have known him.

AT THE BEGINNING OF THE SCHOOL YEAR THE FACULTY OF THE LAW SCHOOL WAS INCREASED BY THE ADDITION OF FULL- TIME INSTRUCTORS. THE FACILITIES OF THE SCHOOL OF ECONOMICS AND GOV- ERNMENT WERE EXPANDED TO INCLUDE A JUNIOR COLLEGE DIVISION TO MEET THE PRESENT DAY REQUIREMENTS OF PRE- PROFESSIONAL TRAINING.

He was awarded both the Primary and Advanced flight scholar- ships, and carried through in this endeavor as well as continuing his study of law. The Debating Club and the Order of Yellow Dogs number him among their members. Edward Stephen Adams National University has not only furnished Ed with an education but also time to stall the girls through leap year. He is definitely sure that the “one to be” must not be a clinging vine. It will be back to Hyattsville, Maryland after school to take the bar and practice, after which all applicants for marriage will be closely studied and considered. Hosea Bankhead Abernethy Sigma Nu Phi Flying Club “AB,” the good-looking mustachioed guy with that Southern drawl, comes from Mississippi and, so help me, “Suh,” he’s going back down “theah” to take the Bah. He is one of the Flying Club’s most experienced members and was the first to solo. He is chairman of the Flying Club’s Contest Committee. His favorite instructor is Professor Barse and his favorite subject is ADams 0418 -W. Roy Malcolm Alexander Sigma Nu Phi This mild mannered, jovial gentleman, who took such a shine to common law pleading, probably deserves membership in some organization featuring the world’s toughest toughies. Before he went into the Department of Agriculture he was on the District of Columbia police force and prior to that he was a corporal in Uncle Sam’s “Leathernecks” — still rates pistol shooting as a hobby. [ 28 ] Altho Ashley Allen Delta Theta Phi A is for triple- A Allen who comes from Alabama and works for Agriculture. He’s active in all student affairs and his salesmanship was unsurpassed when it came to selling those review lectures to aid the depleted class finances. Although his favorite subject is real property we’ll remember him for his good recitations in bail- ments and carriers. The gentleman from Alabama will be one of the State’s best attorneys. George Walter Armstrong George is a native of the deep South, first seeing the light of day at Irondale, Alabama. Being of an ambi- tious type, he came to Washington to study law. In his spare time he works at the Navy Department. After graduation George intends to take both the District of Columbia and Alabama bar exams. George should be a politician because he loves to make speeches. When the season is right, you’ll find George with his gun and dog just ’a huntin’. Charles E. Ammons Delta Theta Phi A student first of Constitutional Law and the general curriculum next, Charlie is employed by the Navy De- partment and hails from Mannington, West Virginia. His intentions are to take the bar examination in Washington, D. C., but definitely does not intend to practice the law. Yes girls, Charles is very much married. ft Charles A. Asbell Masonic Club The Masonic Club chose an excellent leader when they elected Charlie President. While he’s been at National University he has occupied his days at the Department of Agriculture. Charlie’s going to take the Indiana bar after graduation. His friendly smile and the fact that his attractive wife often attended lectures with him, made Charlie especially popular with his classmates. [ 29 ] Wallace Irvine Babcock Delta Theta Phi W. I. Babcock’s legal residence is Bath, Maine. He attended George Washington University before coming to National. His hobbies include golf, riding, ice- skating, tennis, traveling, and hunting, all of which have been suspended while he is studying law. W. I. was an officer of Beta Lambda Sigma during its early beginning and contributed much time and energy to its achievements. His present intentions are to take the D. C. bar examination after graduation. Victor A. Barnes Sigma Delta Kappa Vic came from Lyons, New York to enter the U. S. Forest Service where he is presently employed. He graduated from the Lyons High School and attended Washington College of Law before entering National University. He has no plans of either taking the bar or practicing at the present time. Frank F. Bacchina Quiet and unassuming, Frank likes to delve into the common law. With a good foundation in the common law he should be a successful attorney. Frank came to Washington from Orange, New Jersey, and is employed at the General Accounting Office. We wish you luck in your legal future, Frank. Richard Wyndham Barton Dick Barton is the handsome lad who’s never seen without a pipe. Unlike his classmates Dick went to the summer sessions too, and consequently received his LL.B. and his Masters degrees in the same year. Such an ambitious lad will soon be one of historic Alexan- dria’s leading attorneys. £ 30 ] William Burke Benge Peter Thomas Beardsley Delta Theta Phi Pete, the poet of National University, kept his class- mates awake with his rhymes and jingles. He’s an active member of Delta Theta Phi. Pete would give you “odds” on most anything, but we’ll give you odds that he turns those legal phrases to good advantage in the June bar examination. Bill is a native of Fort Gibson, Oklahoma. He is mar- ried and has one child. After graduating from Haskell Institute Business College he came to Washington to accept a position with the Bureau of Indian Affairs. After attending Benjamin Franklin University he en- tered National and has done very creditable work. His goal is to pass the D. C. and Oklahoma bars. When he has a free moment he likes a game of golf or if the weather s bad a good book will do. Carl Bergstrom Carl hails from the capital city of Nebraska and before joining his classmates at National a preparatory school in Georgetown and George Washington University. He is employed in the Census Bureau. Carl is always ready to help untangle a legal question with his classmates. Alphonzo William Billups Sigma Nu Phi “Bill” is a native son of South Carolina and came to National from the University of South Carolina. Was a member of the Executive Committee during his fresh- man year and has been active in all school functions. Bill was always good in coaching his classmates just before exams. After graduation he will take both the District of Columbia and South Carolina bar examina- tions. We will look for his name in the lawyers’ roster next year. [ 31 ] ★ ★ ★ William Leopold Bissi Chicago lort a good bet when Bill came to Washington to work for the Social Security Board. Now he plans to take the bar and practice in the District of Colum- bia. Toward the defense of his country he served a three year enlistment in the National Guard. Girls, note, he is still single. 0 H. Robert Bogusch Bob has attended the University of Virginia and the United States Naval Academy previous to enrolling at National. He is employed by a credit company here in Washington. Bob has not decided whether to use his law in connection with his present occupation or to hang out his shingle. He likes all sports but is pretty good on the links or the tennis court. Not being mar- ried, he found Saturday night classes particularly annoying. Helen May Bloedorn Kappa Beta Pi Cy Press Around school they’ll tell you that Helen is one of the hardest working and best liked students. The loser in a gladitorial encounter with an automobile, the class held its collective breath until the word came out that she was on the royal road to recovery. Helen will be remembered for her excellent work on the “Legal Regis- ter.” She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi and the Cy Press Club. Shelton Williams Bolen Sigma Delta Kappa Another Mississippi gentleman who’ll make good is Shelton Bolen. His hobby is listening and that’s a good one for any lawyer to have. Shelton likes Consti- tutional law, in spite of having taken it during one of Washington’s most torrid summers. [ 32 ] Nina Kathryn Bolkhardt Phi Delta Delta Cy Press Nina is one of the triumvirate of the Carver, Strawn, and Bolkhardt study club. This team knew all the answers around exam time. From Upstate New York. Nina takes her politics seriously. During recess Nina ' s witty stories helped to revive our spirits. We predict that Nina will be lawyer for Uncle Sam after she gets her be-ribboned diploma. Paul Frederick Borden Paul attended Maryland University before entering National. While there he was a member of the R.O. T.C. He is married and is employed at a local bank. After graduation he intends to take the D. C. bar and practice here. Perhaps Paul will be the one to promote good-will between the legal and banking professions. Ernest Coe Booth Delta Theta Phi Ernest hails from Bristol, Rhode Island. He graduated Magna Cum Laude. School of Experience. U. S. A. Since then he has done quite well as an Inspector for the Navy Department. His favorite form of relaxation is good music. Ernest intends to take the bar and we’d hate to be opposing counsel to him. Percy Lawrence Bowman Sigma Delta Kappa Pat is one of the most versatile of politicians. He originated the “flank movement” in class politics. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa and one of the members of the Docket staff of 1941. During his Junior year he was a member of the entertainment committee. Prior to National, he studied at Valparaiso University and the Silver Bow Law School at Butte, Montana. James Bernard Bradshaw Sigma Nu Phi (What’s that citation) Bradshaw will have plenty of notes and citations with which to start the practice of law. “Brad” was treasurer and a member of the Executive Committee during his freshman year. He received his B.S. degree from the University of Penn- sylvania and his M.A. at George Washington. He is employed by the Department of Justice and in June he’ll be joining his classmates at the D. C. bar exam- ination. The class will long remember Bradshaw’s questions from the floor. Benjamin B. Brown Ben is a native of Wilmington, Delaware. He is employed with a local firm. After receiving his degree he intends to take the District of Columbia bar and hang up his shingle. Between cases Ben is going to perfect his golf game and remedy his pet peeve “hooks and slices.” Stanley Homer Bronson Sigma Nu Phi A quiet lad who attended Youngstown College and George Washington University before entering National where he set an enviable record. He likes Sharon, Far- rell, Wheatland, The Buhls, Luhring, Pleading, Golf, Chips and does not have a single pet peeve. He be- longs to Sigma Nu Phi and the Yellow Dogs. What more could be said to prove him a regular fellow? John Schwarz Brown That tall, blond Johnny Brown came to National from Flushing, New York. Unlike his namesake John is a quiet unassuming chap with always a friendly smile and a cheery greeting. He is employed at the Department of Agriculture but after he passes the District bar he will, no doubt, practice law. [ 34 ] Lamar Browx Iamar Haims else District of CoIimHa as his domicile or vice versa. Me attended George Washington Univex- sirv berore cessing to Nadonal. T smar is s Lieutenant in the R O.T.C. When he ' s not studying lav he enyors s wimmi ng and walking. He will be remembered for his late entries in Professor Mun rex ' s class vith a pcettv blonde c o m pa nion. George D. Blxtixg a Phi Masonic Clnb Beaceme Business College, in his cone town of Tem- per ancev die. irgima, prepared George for entrv- mto the sacred “ H a ils or Naaoual.” Though quiet and unassuming throughout most of the year, he creates a considerable amount of furor when the result of examinations become known. He is a thorough-gome f arav ' T man. witn a wire and three children assedsmt cis family circle. George is an active member of Sigma Xu Phi Legal Fratemitv and the Masonic Qub. Ralph Albert Buexixg DcIsji Tkeu Phi The football and baseball playing gentleman from Cin- cinnati . Ohio, and the University of the same name, will pass the District bar and practice with the Inter- state Commerce Commission. If only we had better chairs at X. U. eh. Ralph? Then you could listen to vour favorite professor. Mr. Barse. in solid comfort. Wexdell W. Campbell Apex Honor Society Sigma .Va Phi Wendell came here from Topeka. Kansas. He is em- ployed in die Post Omce Department. He attended W ashbum College at Topeka and George Washington University. During his ireshman vear at Xarional he a member of the Constitution and Executive Com- mittees; in his junior year he held the olhce of I reasurer. W endell ' s greatest honor came in his senior v ear. when he was elected Sovereign Barrister of the Apex Honor Sonerv. His legal future will be suc- cess! ul. L 35 3 John Pershing Carr Delta Theta Phi From Afton, New York, to the War Department in Washington, D. C., and to our own N. U. comes this horse-loving six-footer with a ready smile for all. The University of Minnesota and Strayer Business Col- lege gave “Jack” a good start toward his law study and ultimate practice here in the District. Eugene Alexander Carusi Gene is following in the footsteps of his brother — our professor — Ugo Carusi. We know that he too will be a successful attorney. When Mr. Carusi isn’t hidden behind a law book he spends his time listening to Grand Opera. Robert Harold Carr Delta Theta Phi The Carr brothers certainly did confuse the professors. If one didn’t know the answer the other one did. Bob will be a lawyer for the government when he gets his diploma. His hobby is horseback riding and tennis. Both the Carrs are active Delta Theta Phi brothers. Elsie Sugden Carver Phi Delta Delta Cy Press Club The Eastern Main Conference Seminary and the Shaw Business College of Orrington, Maine, gave us this potential practitioner of law in D. C. She cannot make up her mind whether she likes Criminal Law, Evidence, or Swimming best — she is sure, however, that she dislikes the bus service between her home and school. [ 36 ] Joseph E. Caylor Whitley City, Kentucky, lost a good golfer, and Berea College, Berea, Kentucky, lost a good student when Joe came to Washington to prepare for our bar. He is quite fond of Real Property, especially when Professor Patterson is doing the honors. He’ll be going back to Kentucky before long to try his hand at their bar — he’ll get along all right. Bertha Luedders Claus Kappa Beta Pi Bertha will take the District bar examination and prac- tice here. She’s from across the Potomac in Arlington, Virginia. Besides tennis and books, International and Constitutional Law hold her attention, especially when taught by Professors Husserl and Pergler. Her work at the United States Treasury will keep her busy in case she decides not to practice law. Charles K. Chaplin Sigma Nu Phi Charlie came to us from Pottstown, Pennsylvania, and makes his living laboring for the Federal Works Agency, while attending National. He is a member of Sigma Nu Phi Legal Fraternity, and has been elected treasurer of the Senior Class. Young, single, and with a ready sense of humor, he is highly eligible, but his friends haven’t as yet been able to get him to take the fatal leap. The bar as well as the movies may soon be represented by a famous name. Irene Catherine Claveloux Cy Press Club Irene served with the American Red Cross in France during the World War. Before coming to National University she graduated from Washington Irving High School in New York, and attended Hunter’s College and the Washington College of Law. Along with her cooking and social service work she will undoubtedly find time to practice law here in the District of Columbia. [ 37 ] ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Samuel William Cochran Sam is down on all professors who discourage sleeping in class, but he should know that it wasn’t the profes- sors but the recently discarded chairs which kept him awake. He is an employee of the U. S. Patent Office. Sam intends to take the District Bar, but hasn’t quite made up his mind whether he’ll hang out a shingle or remain one of Uncle Sam’s devoted nephews. Andrew Grant Conlyn Delta Theta Phi “Andy” is another local boy who got the urge to study law, but is in doubt at this time as to whether or not he will practice what he has learned, although his intentions are to take the D. C. and Maryland Bar exams. A Second Lieutenant in the National Guard, as the class well knows from seeing him in that neat uniform on Tuesday nights. Good luck to you, Andy, and may success be yours. Kenneth Yager Cole Sigma Delta Kappa It is with deep regret that National relinquishes to Geoigia the cheery smile that was Ken Cole’s. With just enough sense of humor to temper a keen intellect, he quickly became a favorite among the students. His success as an attorney is assured. J. Anton Conner Delta Theta Phi After attending Pace Institute of Accounting, Ameri- can Institute of Banking, and New York University, Tony emigrated to Washington to take up the study of law. With Tony’s background of accountancy and legal lore, combined with his charming wife’s degree in Phi- losophy, we predict a successful future before the Courts. He is interested in photography as a hobby and his favorite law subject is “Equitable Trusts.” [ 38 ] Alfred Cottrell Al Cottrell, First Lieutenant, Infantry Reserves, plans to enjoy the vicissitudes of Washington weather ’til death do us part. Al received a B.S. in engineering from Lehigh and is now employed by the C. and P. Telephone Company. Law is merely incidental to a career, so Al doesn’t intend to practice, but those who know him believe this to be a loss to the legal profes- sion. His keen, analytical mind and an inherent ability to ferret out facts would have assured a modicum of success before the bar. Charles E. Cricher Masonic Club Unlike some of his classmates, Mr. Cricher really studies the law books that he carries in his brief case. Charles is the treasurer for the Masonic Club of N. U. and also a Shriner. He works in the Department of Interior, and his hobby is playing the piano and organ, when he isn’t taking lectures on that speedy stenotype machine. Charles D. Crandall Delta Theta Phi “Charley” hails from the great dust state, Oklahoma. After graduating from Lawton High School, he entered Cameron Junior College, where he acquired a hankering to travel. He landed in D. C. and found a job with the Navy Department. Desiring to further his educa- tion, he entered George Washington University, but somehow his studies there did not satisfy his yearnings so he turned to law, and, exercising his excellent taste, entered National. Charley has outstanding grades and we believe he will be successful in the law. He has been a valuable member of Delta Theta Phi, in which he was Custodian of Documents. John Ambrose Davey Delta Theta Phi John may be able to connect up his avocation of avia- tion with law. He came down here from Providence, Rhode Island, to take a position with the Civil Service Commission. His quiet, likable personality will carry him over the rough spots. Ernest Houston Davies Sigma Nu Phi Ernest came to Washington from the good State of Georgia to work for the General Accounting Office. And speaking of real Southern gentlemen, Ernest has all the qua lifications. Besides being a genuine scholar of the law, Ernie was the poet of the class and the Docket is deeply indebted to him for his literary as- sistance. Ernie’s poems and rhymes charmed many a coed, and helped to brighten a dull lecture. It won’t be long after Ernest has that diploma in hand that we will see him in frock coat and striped trousers present- ing his case before the austere Supreme Court. Donald Johnson Davis Sigma Nu Phi From American Falls, Idaho, Donald came to work in the War Department, and to study law at National. He will take the D. C. and Florida Bars, but he has not yet decided where he will practice. He will prob- ably be a trial lawyer, as his favorite subject is Moot Court. Catlett Gibson Davis Sigma Nu Phi He is that shy young gentleman from D. C. , but not too shy to notice pretty girls. Gabby is employed by the Capital Transit Company. He has become very valuable to the Docket staff as Assistant Photographic Editor, so don’t be surprised if he pops up and is “gone in a flash’’! Gabby is still single and vows he has no idea of a dual life, but we doubt it. If you are ever in a pipe emporium or photographic shop you may expect to find Gabby. Herbert Allison Davis He is the sandy-haired fellow who has his eyes and ears cocked on the professor, diligently taking notes. Herbie is from nearby Hyattsville, Maryland. It was here that he was reared and became so popular. Within a year or two you will find his name in politics run- ning for the state legislature of Maryland. Herbie at- tended George Washington University before entering National, and it is from his hard and serious studying that we know that he will be successful. His pet sub- ject is Evidence. [ 40 ] Ralph Day Bright as day and always on the alert, Ralph is known as a good printer and is employed with the Williams and Heintz Seld Company. He hails from the nearby town of Hyattsville in the Terrapin State. It is there he plans to practice, specializing in the field of mar- riage and the absolution thereof. Margot E. Diesner Cy Pres Club Once more the “Smoky City” of Pittsburgh, Pennsyl- vania, has scored by sending us Peggy. Although shy on first meeting, she is a charming friend and compan- ion once her reserve has been overcome. Goodwin Acad- emy and Iron City College furnished her educational background for the study of law at National. Her so- cial interests at school are centered in the Cy Pres Club, and her recreational hobbies are travel, dancing, and outdoor sports. Congratulations to the Social Se- curity Board on having such an employee as Margot. Constance Catherine Deenihan Cy Pres Club We hail our Queen for 1941. Connie attended the Washington School for Secretaries and then found em- ployment in the Finance Office, U. S. Army. Connie “chose” National for her study of law, but had National been doing the choosing it couldn’t have done better. She is still single, but it’s her own fault. If the boys had their way about it she would have changed her name long ago. Golf and music are her hobbies and Real Property is her favorite subject. Thomas Francis Dignan Tom came from Albany, New York, and is an em- ployee of the Department of Agriculture. Using good judgment in his choice of schools, he came to Na- tional. He is interested in golf as a hobby and insists that Real Property is his favorite study. At the present time he is still single, but we don’t know for how long. [ 41 ] i I i i I i - ★ ★ ★ Rita Marie Doherty Phi Delta Delta Rita is one of the unsung heroines who makes the tasks of men like Moe Mohundro of the Interstate Commerce Commission easy. Rita transferred from the Portia Law School at Boston to National, and Portia’s loss was National’s gain, as her strict application to her studies is an inspiration to the remainder of the class. John William Dollins After finishing his courses at Benjamin Franklin Uni- versity, John decided to combine law with the account- ancy, so he entered National University. Wise judg- ment, John. He intends to take the D. C. bar and then return to his home state of Indiana to take the bar and probably to practice. June Eleanor Do leman Cy Press Club The class in extra-curricular activities, which meets in the main corridor during classes, almost disbanded when June went to the hospital with a paralyzed arm. June is tall, lovely, and popular. She is one of the spark- plugs of the Docket Staff and is a member of the Cy Pres Club. June won’t say whether she is going to practice law. Wonder why? 0 Harry J. Donahue Before coming to Washington to work in the Post Of- fice Department, Harry’s home was in Patton, Pa. Harry entered into the realm of matrimonial bliss, hav- ing taken unto himself a wife shortly after the exam- inations last Fall. Good luck, Harry, and may your matrimonial and legal careers be equally successful. [ 42 ] Robert Emmett Driscoll Bob came to Washington from Buffalo with the express intent of further pursuing his legal education, which had begun at Fordham Law School. Fordham’s loss has been National’s gain, for his forensic ability in the debating society has done much to further that in- terest in the school. Bob received his A.B. degree at the University of Buffalo. Bob intends to follow the law in D. C., and we feel sure that his forensic ability and mental agility will assure a brilliant legal future. William Adolph Eggert William’s home town is Great Falls, Montana, and since coming to Washington he has been in the employ- of the Railroad Retirement Board. His previous edu- cation was received at the University of Montana. During his Freshman year he was the recipient of the “Godfrey L. Munter Award’’ for the best examination paper in the subject of “Sales.” Ping-pong is his hobby and Real Property his favorite law subject. John Garland Edwards John divides his time between his home in Bethesda, his job in the Department of Interior, and his studies at National. He has had to be faithful in his attend- ance at school to overcome the temptation to re-enlist as a regular in the U. S. Naval Air Corps. He at- tended the Bridgeport Engineering Institute and the University of Maryland, prior to his entering National. With an engineering degree behind him, he should be able to build a fine law practice. Joan B. Eggleston Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Joan is an employee of the Social Security Board. Be- fore taking up the study of law at National she at- tended Radcliffe College. Besides her duties as Report- er for the Cy Pres Club, she finds time to take an active part in the affairs of Kappa Beta Pi. Her hob- bies cover a varied field: fishing, soap carving, clay modeling, and cooking. Joan is deadly serious in her studies and as her favorite course has chosen that flex- ible (if not elusive) subject. Constitutional Law. [ 43 ] ★ ★ ★ Richard Edmund Ely Dick is a proud Virginian from the town of Alexan- dria and is gainfully employed by the Diamond Cab Association. In the study of law Dick is in dead ear- nest, which explains his scholastic success. Criminal law is his favorite subject, while his outside hobby is the noble game of bridge. Dick intends to practice law in the City of Washington, and no person who knows him has any doubt whatever as to his success in his chosen field. Jack Francis Ermerins Sigma Nu Phi Jack’s experience in accounting, together with his law, is really going to get him places. It’s a fine twosome — law and accounting. His accounting ability, coupled with his personality, was responsible for his election as Registrar of the Exchequer of Sigma Nu Phi. Even though Jack’s a hard-working boy he’s not dull — at least his stories are certainly entertaining. 6 Lyle Crawford Farmer Farmer, of Bailments and Carriers fame, should be a transportation counsellor. His experience at the Inter- state Commerce Commission would also be valuable in the railroad field. Lyle hails from Grand Forks, North Dakota, but he intends to practice in the District of Columbia. As is most lawyers’, Lyle’s hobby is golf. Edna W. Ferretti Kappa Beta Pi The sweet little redhead from Georgia, Edna Ferretti, leads the women students in scholastic honors. We pre- dict a very bright legal future for Edna. She works for the Civil Service Commission while attending National University. When her legal career begins she’s going to catch up on some of that traveling she’s been “hank- ering to do.” [ 44 ] Charles Henry Flasphaler Phi Beta Gamma Charlie is one of the Class leaders and also a conscien- tious objector of things in general. His is a “hail fellow well met” personality. His newspaper experience proved invaluable to the infant Midnight Oil and also to the Docket staff. Knowing Charlie as we do. we feel sure that a bar holds no terror for him. Here ' s a toast to your legal future, Charlie. Frederick Francis Fox Fred is an employee of the Department of Justice. His favorite hobby is the collection of rare coins. Fred says he will take the District of Columbia Bar, but hasn ' t quite made up his mind whether he will practice law. However, we feel sure that one bright day he will wake up with an office and a shingle. Girls — nota bene — Fred is still single. Henry Edwards Foulds Delta Theta Phi Ed is our candidate for All-Sport Enthusiast, with his prowess in bowling, golf, and riding to hounds. He is employed by the American Security and Trust Company, and whether he practices the law as a profession or uses it to advance himself in his present employment, it follows that he will be successful. Ed is a member of Delta Theta Phi Fraternity, and our best wishes follow him. Francis Joseph Frankina The Class of ' 41 will long remember Frank as being one of its most studious members. Frank comes to National by way of Harvard University and the Suf- folk Law School in Boston. He is at present employed by the Railroad Retirement Board, but you can bet vour bottom dollar he’ll go into private practice right after he takes the District of Columbia and Maryland Bar examinations. John Francis Fratantuono Sigma Delta Kappa Every student owes a debt of gratitude to John for the initiative he displayed and the hard work he put out in connection with the Roger O’Donnell Memorial Plaque. In one manner or the other, John’s time is completely absorbed by the law. Besides attending Na- tional, he works for the Nacrelli Bar Review School. He is Vice-Chancellor of Sigma Delta Kappa. © Harry Eugene Freyberg Harry crossed the continent to work for the Social Se- curity Board and to study law, and he will cross the continent again to hang out his shingle. He is tall, blonde, and good-looking, but lay off, girls, Harry is happily married and the proud father of a baby daugh- ter. No biography of him would be complete without mentioning the fact that he is a member of the United States Naval Reserve. Bertha Freriks Cy Pres Club From the good State of Wisconsin, Bertha is one of the scholastic leaders of the class. Before entering Na- tional, Bertha received her B.A. degree from George Washington. She is employed in the Interstate Com- merce Commission. We predict that Miss Freriks will be one of the students entertained by the faculty when the Bar results are announced. Paul C. Funty As an employee of the Farm Credit Administration, Paul came to National after completing a course at Washington Business College. Though serious in his studies, he is one of the most cheerful members of the class, always bubbling over with good humor, and al- ways ready to join in a joke. Since he is still single, it is presumed that the girls are just waiting until he gets that coveted degree [ 46 J Charles S. Francis Sigma Nu Phi Charlie brought some of that Southern chivalry to Na- tional. He’s that Florida gentleman whose Southern drawl is heard over at the Interstate Commerce Com- mission, where he’s employed in the office of Commis- sioner Eastman. A real legal scholar — that’s Charles. Ralph Gasque Sigma Delta Kappa Gasque in South Carolina’s contribution to the welfare and prestige of the Senior Class. He is Sergeant-at- Arms of the Class of ’41, as well as a member of the interclass debate team in ’40 and ’41, and on the Intercollegiate Debate Team in ’41. He works for the District of Columbia government. Ralph is a member °f Sigma Delta Kappa. Some day he wants to practice, but is having a hard time deciding whether it will be in the District or back home in South Carolina. Harry Gaberman Apex Honor Society Alpha Beta Phi Gentlemen, we give you Harry! He could well sit back and revel in the glory with which he covered himself as founder and president of the largest and most successful debating society in the history of National. He is a member of the Interfraternity Council, Marshal of Al- pha Beta Phi, member of the Docket Staff, a blessing to the Editor of Midnight Oil , and a Lieutenant in the National Guard. Harry plans to practice law in Massachusetts, and we predict a world of success for him. George Marvin Giammittorio Apex Honor Society Sigma Delta Kappa Known for his shrewdness, keen sense of judgment, and his records at National, there is no doubt of his suc- cess. He was a valuable member on the debate team for 1940, but the position of Business Manager of the Docket for 1941 took too much time for any activity on the Debate Club for 1941. He is a native Virgin- ian, where he intends to return to practice, and woe be to any opposing counsellors. [ 47 ] ★ ★ ★ Max Goldberg Alpha Beta Phi Max is a member of Alpha Beta Phi and the Interfra- ternity Council, but more than that he belongs to that select set who hold themselves out to the world with no little amount of pride as a native Washingtonian. He intends to practice law in the District, and his legion of friends assure him success. Max is one of the Class’ brain trusters; as a matter of fact, he was vale- dictorian of his graduating class at Langley Junior High School, but that was long ago. Winifred Hutchins Grant Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres Club The charming “Winnie” is a native of Maryland and received her pre-legal knowledge at Maryland State Normal and the University of Maryland. This ener- getic person is Chancellor of Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Delta Delta and Treasurer of the Cy Pres Club. An excellent student, she yet finds time for her favor- ite sports of golf, skating, dancing, riding, and playing cards. Is especially partial to Professor Munter’s lec- tures. John A. Graber Masonic Club John reaches Washington via the Washington Prepara- tory School of Winchester, in good ole Virginny. This genial chap is an excellent student and an active worker in the National University Masonic Club. He expects to hang out his shingle here in Washington, and ' may his career as an attorney be as successful as his career as a student. 9 Wilbur L. Gray, Jr. Sigma Nu Phi Wilbur attended the University of Virginia before coming to National, and is a member of Theta Chi and Alpha Delta Sigma social fraternities. Wilbur, praise Allah, is not a nephew of Uncle Sam, but “works” for a living as a broker in a real estate and insurance company. Intends to practice law, and his success is assured. [ 48 ] Bess Livesey Greenschlag Cy Pres Club Bess hails from sunny California, and behind a shy exterior there lurks a sweetness of disposition that can not be tied. She previously attended Metropolitan Uni- versity of Los Angeles and plans to take the D. C. Bar examination in the near future. Her partiality to the subject of Evidence may be colored by her high regard for Professor Bastian. Allen William Hagerty Apex Honor Society Delta Theta Phi It took the Docket to make public Allen’s middle name. He has won the admiration of everyone by his wholehearted willingness to put the welfare of the Class above everything else. He is one of the Class of ’41 ’s most valued members. He was a member of the execu- tive committees during his Junior and Senior years. In his Senior year he was also selected as member of the Apex Honor Society. The fact that he is an examiner in the I. C. C., and that he is married to one of his most charming classmates, is reason enough for his claim to fame. William Keith Hafer Apex Honor Society Sigma Nu Phi The import of Bill receiving his degree should not be lost. It means there will be no more floods, famines, or plagues. The world will be safe from everything except another councellor at law. Bill is a native of Pennsylvania. Every year spent at National has been marked by some contribution to his Class. He was Historian of his Freshman Class, Chairman of the Class Constitution Committee, member of the staffs of the ’39, ’40, and ’41 Dockets, Second Vice-Chancel- lor of Sigma Nu Phi, and Barrister of the Exchequer of the Apex Honor Society. Ruth Peacock Hagerty Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Ruth, a swell half of the firm of Hagerty and Hagerty, is a native Washingtonian. She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi International Legal Sorority and of the Cy Pres Club, and is the most indefatigable worker in either organization. Ruth and husband Allen expect to take the District Bar examination, and their many friends are boosting for their future. Nothing but suc- cess could follow such a perfect combination. N. Battle Hales Sigma Delta Kappa Interfraternity Council Battle Hales’ debut at National was marked by his immediate nomination for the Presidency of the Fresh- man Class. During his campaign he got acquainted with all of the students and retained their friendship throughout his internship at National. In his Senior year Battle was elected President of the Interfraternity Council. He is a member of Sigma Delta Kappa. We predict that Battle will follow in the footsteps of that other native North Carolinian who made good — Senator Bob Reynolds. Maebelle Hunter Ham Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club The stunning Maebelle is one of our most promising Portias. At present she is employed at the Veterans Administration, and we predict that ere long she will take her place on its legal staff. Maebelle is a mem- ber of Kappa Beta Pi legal sorority and the Cy Pres Club. Walter Hall Walter, the Virginia gentleman from Accomack County, is known for his Southern chivalry. He was an ac- countant student at Benjamin Franklin University be- fore entering law school. Walter is employed by the banking firm of Laidlaw and Company. He intends to take the District Bar. Hobby: A blonde (singular) . Pauline Hammer Cy Pres Club Pauline hails from Brooklyn and expects to return there to engage in the active practice of law. She is a valu- able employee of the Interstate Commerce Commission, but is counting the days until she can return to her native State. Her favorite subject is Evidence, and her hobby is gardening. A member of Cy Pres and can be counted on to do more than her share of com- mittee work. [ 50 ] Faye Hanley Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres Club When we were bored with the lectures our tired spirits were revived when we looked at Faye’s millinery. We’ll never forget that red one with the black feathers. Faye came from Paris, Missouri, to work in the Civil Aero- nautics Administration. She attended the Chillicothe Business College. If Faye will wear one of those pretty hats when she tries her first case we predict Justice will prevail for her client. John Mathews Harris John is a graduate of the American Institute of Bank- ing and is employed by the Anacostia Bank. He plans on taking the South Carolina Bar examination, and it is more than a possibility that he will soon be taking his new bride to that State to embark on a successful career as a practicing attorney. Our best to you, John Dorothy Lucy Harris Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Dot is an inveterate traveler and before coming to National cycled her way through France, Germany, and other European countries. She is a member of Kappa Beta Pi legal sorority and of the Cy Pres Club. Dot is employed at the Department of Justice, and expects shortly to take the District of Columbia Bar exams. In all probability plans for an approaching marriage will interfere with active practice of the law. Juanita Newton Harris Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Taking Juanita as a criterion, the homefolks of White- fish, Montana, are certainly of a happy, effulgent dis- position. Her pre-legal training was received at Duke University, and since coming to National University she can truly say, “Veni, vidi, vici.” The Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority, the Cy Pres Club, and the Debating Club all number her among their members. Tennis and chess comprise her hobbies, and her chief interest in her legal subjects is Real Property. [ 51 ] Leslie Freeman Hart Delta Theta Phi In a day, not far off, the Bar Association of the Dis- trict of Columbia will be pleased to list among its members the name of Leslie F. Hart. Leslie will tell anyone that his favorite subject is Contracts, and that Professor Patterson is tops with him. When the drums roll and the trumpets blare, Leslie, as a member of the Naval Reserve, will be in the front rank. He is a graduate of Benjamin Franklin University. With all sorts of fairness, he names blondes, brunettes, and red- heads as his hobby, with emphasis on the blondes. Bert Hubert Heacock Sigma Nu Phi Bert earns his livelihood working for the Department of Justice while absorbing legal knowledge at National. His pre-legal work was done at Birmingham-Southern College, in Birmingham, Alabama. He is still single, but highly eligible, and, if you care to know, is inter- ested in hiking, swimming, and Constitutional Law. He intends to take the bar in both the District and in Alabama, but prefers the Government service to the active practice of law. Samuel Steadman Harvey Phi Beta Gamma Phi Beta Gamma chose Sam to Chancellor it through a successful 1940-41 year. He received his pre-legal education at George Washington, and his business train- ing at Strayers. Even though Sam’s pet peeve is study- ing for exams, he always comes through with flying colors. LeRoy Luis Heller “Louie,” as known by the majority of fellow students, works for Uncle Sam in the Copyright Division in the Congressional Library, where he has proven himself an able worker, just as he has at National University. Louie attended Bradley College, University of Illinois, and Georgetown University before entering National. After you take the D. C. and Illinois Bars, we pre- dict a very successful career in law for you. [ 52 ] Carl Anton Hesse Sigma Delta Kappa Carl has earned the envy, but not the animosity, of his classmates by winning the prize for the best exam- ination paper on Bills and Notes in 1939. With such a record behind him, he should easily take the hurdle from his present employment with the U. S. News Publishing Company to the active practice of law. His hobby is chess and his favorite subject Real Property. The Chief Justice is also known because of his evasive decisions by saying, “It’s a contrariety of judicial opinion.” Hobart Roosevelt House Delta Theta Phi Hobart, while making his living as an employee of the Southern Railway, has attended Benjamin Franklin Uni- versity, emerging with a degree of M.C.S. behind his name, so who could doubt his success in the field of law? He was married some few years ago, and has managed to stay married, which is quite some trick in this day and time. Members of Delta Theta Phi think very highly of him, having elected him their treasurer. Arthur D. Horner A native Washingtonian, who has pledged himself to become successful despite the well-known handicap of being born here. Arthur, although known as being quiet and reserved, is very active when it comes to sports. He is one of the exceptions in baseball and football. After graduating from Central High School, he immediately resolved to study law, and, knowing Arthur, we are confident that he will be very success- ful in this field. Joseph M. Howarth Sigma Nu Phi Editor, soldier, and lawyer, Joe’s accomplishments speak for themselves. Receiving his schooling at Millsaps College and Ole Miss, where he edited the Law Re- view, after becoming a member of the Mississippi Bar, he became Secretary of the Mississippi Board of Law Examiners. After being admitted to the D. C. Bar by motion, he was made Sergeant-at-Arms of the D. C. Bar Association. Back in ’17, when there was also somewhat of a “ruckus over there,” Corporal Howarth, U.S.M.C., with the A.E.F., “made the world safe for democracy.” [ 53 ] ★ ★ ★ Richard Loren Hubbard Richard came to National with quite a scholastic record behind him, having studied medicine at Tulane Univer- sity in New Orleans, and then took postgraduate work in Dalhousie University in Halifax, Nova Scotia. In spite of his medical studies, he could not cure himself when the legal bug bit him, so here he is. A native of In diana, he has traveled far and wide, seeing plenty of the country, but still insists that his favorite subject is Real Property. James Roe Hunter Masonic Club James hails from West Virginia, and we salute that grand old State for sending us such a son. Formerly attended Marietta Academy and Marietta College in Marietta, Ohio. He is greatly interested in Criminal Law, but on the side is fascinated, by way of a hobby, in antiques. The Masonic Club at National University has honored him by bestowing upon him its Vice-Presi- dency. Luis Willison Huerta Delta Theta Phi Luis did very well by himself before coming to Na- tional, as he attended Benjamin Franklin University and put the finger on them for two degrees, B.C.S. and M.C.S. Attending football games is his chief hobby, but in the realm of his legal subjects he is most interested in Real Property. Elsie Mandley Hyatt Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club We salute the fair city of Minneapolis for sending us such a light-stepping, shiny-eyed little miss as Elsie. She decided to pursue the study of law at National University, where, because of her unfailing friendli- ness, she has become quite popular with her classmates, and it may be said that she comes within the exception of having both beauty and brains. We hate to dis- appoint the eligibles among the male contingent, but she has been married since 1935. Her hobby is boat- ing and her favorite subject is Domestic Relations. [ 54 ] Martha Isaacson Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club After leaving her home town at Youngstown, Ohio, Martha became employed in the Veterans Administra- tion. It was here she decided to attend National Uni- versity to study law, which she intends to use as an aid in her work. She does not intend practicing. But with her success in her grades, we heartily encourage her to give the idea of practicing very serious consid- eration. She is a member of the Kappa Beta Pi Legal Sorority and of the Cy Pres Club. Arthur Lee Jenkins Sigma Nu Phi “Artful Art” came out of the hills of West Virginia (Clarksburg) to run the Federal Works Agency as the duly appointed and acting agent of Uncle Samuel. A Sigma Nu Phi, he is a member of its important Exec- utive and Finance Committee, chairman of its Publicity and Smoker Committee, as well as Reporter for Mid- night Oil. With his eye on that Florida Bar examina- tion and a successful career in law, he blushingly nomi- nates A. L. Jenkins for “The Hall of Fame.” Hubert Louis Jacques Down from New Hampshire came Louis to toil for the Social Security Board. He attended Catholic University before enrolling at National. Although he is not sure he is going to practice, Louis has determined one thing, and that is, if he doesn’t practice, he will plead his case to the fish and win them over to biting. Elmer LeRoy Jenkins Delta Theta Phi Elmer has a Washington address, but still insists on holding his legal residence in Leesburg, Virginia. He is a member of Delta Theta Phi and served as Asso- ciate Editor on the Midnight Oil in 1939. His favor- ite subject is Constitutional Law, and his hobby would appear to be military tactics, as he has served with the Field Artillery and is a member of the Reserve. 1 1 ★ ★ Henry Matthew Johns Sigma Nu Phi Henry graduated from Central High School in June, 1927, and after one year at George Washington Uni- versity entered Benjamin Franklin University and col- lected a B.C.S. degree, June, 1932. He states a yen for postcards, but with the LL.B. due in June it would seem his hobby might be collecting degrees. When Henry gets to be a prosecutor he’s going to prosecute those “persistent horn blowers” to which he vehemently objects. Gilbert S. Kackley Delta Theta Phi After studying law at Indiana Law School in his home town of Bloomfield, Indiana, Gil decided to further his study by attending National University. He is em- ployed by the Cafritz Construction Company, where he is cursed with the reputation of being a very hard and industrious worker. Gil intends to take the District Bar, but is moot on the question of practicing. For a picture of a contented man give Gil a warm summer afternoon, a fishing rod, and a shady spot on the banks of a creek. Walter E. Joyce Walter forsook Scranton, Pennsylvania, to come to Washington, where he is now employed as Adminis- trative Assistant in the Reconstruction Finance Corpora- tion. The subject of Real Property intrigues him, but his pet peeve is “The Rule in Shelley’s Case.” Wal- ter has been a benedict since 1919, and is the father of one child. He doesn’t have much to say until ac- tually put on the spot, but then he comes out like a combination of a brain truster and a Philadelphia lawyer. Cecelia McGrath Kaiser Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres Club Cecelia formerly attended Draughon’s Business College and George Washington University, but decided her education would not be well rounded without a study of the law. She is a member of the Cy Pres Club and Phi Delta Delta. She nominates Real Property as her favorite subject, and playing the piano is her favorite pastime. Due to her success in the study of law, we predict that Salem, Missouri, will soon be her next port of call — as a practicing attorney. C 56 J Daniel Blaine Kimball Sigma Delta Kappa Minot, North Dakota, lost a good man and National University gained a hard-working student when Blaine came to Washington to reinforce the ranks of the President’s Executive Offices. Before coming to Na- tional, Blaine spent two years at the Minot State Teachers’ College. Blaine is the father of two children and an active member of Sigma Delta Kappa. • John W. Kitterman Sigma Nu Phi Johnny is the “mighty mite” of Sigma Nu Phi, and as a member he was chosen, during his Senior year, to be its Master of the Rolls. He has been “ Johnny-on - the-Spot” whenever called upon to help the class in any extra-curricular activity. Johnny is employed by the Hartford Accident and Indemnity Company. Won- der if his employer knows that he has a special griev- ance against alarm clocks? Meyer C. King Alpha Beta Phi Meyer, after leaving his studies at Brooklyn College to accept a position with the U. S. Government, pro- ceeded to reel off at B.C.S. degree at Benjamin Frank- lin University before entering National. He now holds a responsible place with the Federal Security Agency. On both the Housing and the Auditing Committees of Alpha Beta Phi, Meyer is more famous for those dou- ble dates with a certain fraternity brother, wherein he proves conclusively that the “male is more deadly than the female.” Stuart John Knapp Delta Theta Phi In search of a good place to study law after attending Columbia University, near his home town of Water- town, New York, John decided to settle in dear old D. C. and study at National. Good decision, John. He served one year in the Coast Artillery of the U. S. Army. “Success is yours who strives to make it,” is his motto. ★ [ 57 ] ★ ★ Richard Woodworth Knight Sigma Nu Phi Dick is a big man at National and was a big man at Ursinus College also, for Richard tips the scales at a mere 200 pounds of bone and muscle. Dick is not all bone and muscle, though, as his scholastic achievements in the legal field will testify. Dick serves in the hon- ored office of Marshal in Sigma Nu Phi (Legal) Fra- ternity, and we feel sure that this combination of brawn and brain will land Dick at the top of the pro- fession he intends to follow. Robert Koetting Skipping straight from the Razorback State and his home town of Arkansas City, Bob grooved himself into the job of a Personnel Classification Investigator in the Civil Service Commission. Before entering Nation- al, Bob attended Kansas Junior College in Arkansas City, Arkansas. Bob is still keenly interested in Do- mestic Relations, even though married for three years. His favorite hobby is with a kodak. He delights in snapping pictures of gum chewers, which are, inci- dentally, his pet peeves. Virginia Lois Knight Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club “Ginny” of the light brown hair had an idea that two lawyers are better than one and joined her husband at National in the study of law. In the meantime she is employed in the National Youth Administration. Virginia is a member of the Cy Pres Club and Kappa Beta Pi Sorority. William E. Koontz Sigma Nu Phi Masonic Club Bill is a native of Luray, Virginia, and the type of “Southern Gentleman” you read about in books. He is happiest when smoking a cigar, with another in his pocket to top the first one off. As Senior Aide to the Editor he rendered a yeoman’s service on the Dockett. Bill is the silent partner of the association of Billups, Koontz, and Lofgren. He did his pre-law work at William and Mary College and the University of Rich- mond. We expect Bill will go back to Virginia and live like a gentleman should, practicing law as a hobby. [ 58 ] Evelyn Lang Krupp Apex Honor Society Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Evelyn left Rockford, Illinois, with no thought of marriage, but during her Junior year at National ca- pitulated to Dan Cupid. The proposition that honors always come to those who deserve them is exemplified in Evelyn’s collegiate career — she served on the com- mittee for the framing of a Constitution for the Fresh- man Class, the Executive Committee in her Junior year, and President of the Cy Pres Club in her Senior year. She is a member of the Apex Honor Society. At pres- ent she is Secretary to Congressman Mason of Illinois. Anthony Thomas Lausi Anthony comes from one of those three States which have not yet joined the Union. He is Secretary to Senator E. W. Gibson, Jr., of Vermont, and after he receiv es his LL.B. expects to practice law. His favorite subject seems to be that complicated subject of Consti- tutional Law. He probably delights in determining the constitutionality or unconstitutionality of the object in controversy. Good luck, Anthony; here’s hoping you can get Vermont to join the Union after you have practiced law there. Robert J. Lamphere Bob joined the Seniors in their last year, and although he was with them for only a year he made many friends. Bob is an avid tabloid reader and most any evening before classes could be found behind a newspaper eat- ing his dinner and analyzing the headlines. His friends and classmates wish him lots of luck in his legal career. John P. Levendis A cosmopolitan, polished and urbane, John hails from the “great open spaces” of New York City, where he received his preliminary schooling via Brooklyn College and New York University prior to enrolling at Na- tional. Specializing in tennis “pour le physique,” and public speaking, for all purposes, John is a member of the Debating Society and of National University’s In- tercollegiate Debate Squad. His lucid logic and even- flowing delivery are bound to make a dent in the Dis- trict of Columbia practice. ★ t 59 I ★ ★ ★ ★ ★ Edward Daniel Lewis Sigma Nu Phi While originally from Pittsburgh, Ed could, neverthe- less, claim any one of five continents as his home. He has circumnavigated the globe several times as a sailor on tramp steamers, and has done his bit of fresh water sailing on the Great Lakes. The District of Columbia will be, however, his permanent abode, where he intends to engage in the active practice of law. Lisle Thornton Lipscomb Lisle attended George Washington University for a time, and then decided to study law, coming to Na- tional for that purpose. He intends to practice both here and in his native State of Maryland. His favor- ite subject is Bills and Notes, and his pet peeve is “Verbosity and Pomposity . ” With words like that, he ought to go to Philadelphia. Edgar H. Lindauer Sigma Nu Phi Lindy fairly exudes cheerfulness and good nature wher- ever he goes, and no social affair would be complete without some of those tall tales that he tells with such inimitable wizardry. Edgar was a radio operator for the United States Navy in World War I. He grad- uated from Bliss Electrical School in 1920, and is now assistant section chief in the Project Control Division of the Works Progress Administration. Edgar is active in Sigma Nu Phi, holding the chairmanship of the Degree Committee. Paul F. Lofgren Sigma Nu Phi Paul left Altoona, Pa., to take a position in the Navy Department as an Engineer. He has been successful in gaining popularity and the respect of his class, and the Sigma Nu Phi Fraternity has been very fortunate in having such a popular and active member. He has also done valuable work as Chief Liaison Officer for the 1941 Docket. He intends to practice law after he successfully hurdles the D. C. and Pennsylvania Bars. His hobbies are cartography, collateral law, reading, and travel. [ 60 ] Lawrence David Low Delta Theta Phi Lawrence comes all the way from the Middle West and earns his daily bread at the Bureau of Internal Revenue. He intends to practice law in the District of Columbia after passing the District Bar. As his favorite subject is Wills, we expect to find him in the probate courts. He is a member of Delta Theta Phi Legal Fraternity. Lauden C. Maness It was the inspiration of greater knowledge and not a shift of scenery that induced Maness to wander into the District of Columbia. He sought to probe the mys- teries of accounting and law. After acquiring a B.C.S. at Benjamin Franklin University, he entered National. As an employee of the General Accounting Office, both the accounting and the law should be of great aid to Uncle Sam. John Thomas Lutey, Jr. Sigma Nu Phi Hailing from Deadwood, South Dakota, John stopped here to delve into the legal lore. He chose the right place, too. Before coming to National, he attended Black Hills Teachers College and Columbus University. He likes sports and spends his leisure moments listen- ing to gavel music. John is a member of Sigma Nu Phi, and his name will soon be annexed to the roster of D. C. lawyers. Ralph Vincent Mangan Delta Theta Phi Ralph is a native of the District — a softly-spoken gen- tleman who is an outstanding Engineer for the Potomac Electric Power Company. Seeking higher education after graduating from St. John’s College, he entered National. Undecided as to whether or not he will hang out a shingle, we know that if he does, success will be his because of his brilliant arguments before Moot Court. A member of Delta Theta Phi and also Sergeant for the R. O. T. C. Good luck, Ralph. Blanche Margason Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club We take off our hats to Uncle Sam for having taken Blanche away from Terre Haute, Indiana, and Indiana State Teachers College to enlist her services in the U. S. Government. Blanche has not only been an efficient employee of the General Accounting Office, but has found time to be an officer of Kappa Beta Pi and to participate in most all student activities. We now warn all opposing counsels that they won’t have a chance when Blanche presents her client’s case to the judge and jury. Richard F. Meehan Phi Beta Gamma Leaving El Reno, Oklahoma, Richard came to Wash- ington to serve the Department of Justice. In studying law at National he is supplementing the education that was started at K. C. W. College and Huff College of Commerce. Dick is a member of Phi Beta Gamma and the Flying Club. Stanley G. Mattern Apex Honor Society Delta Theta Phi Cultured and every inch a gentleman. Stanley achieved his Junior College Certificate while attending George Washington University. At National, Stanley was elected President of the Junior Class, chosen a member of the Apex Honor Society and Delta Theta Phi. Stanley’s ability to play the piano enlivened most all the social functions held during his three years at Na- tional. We know that the Department of Justice will soon have a fine counsellor on its staff. Daniel Joseph Mencoboni Sigma Delta Kappa Because of an inspiration that Dan had as a young lad, he left his native town of Derby, Connecticut, to study law at National University. Dan is a supervisor in the United States Department of Agriculture, but does not let his responsible position interfere with his activities at National. Dan has been active in the affairs of Sigma Delta Kappa and has served the Class well as Assistant Business Manager of the Docket. [ 62 ] Leo Andrew Miazga Delta Theta Phi On leaving the mountains of Pennsylvania, Leo wan- dered into the Mayflower Hotel to put to practice his knowledge of accounting acquired in Business College. It was through this course that he encountered some legal questions which aroused his curiosity to learn some law. He entered National and is now contemplating taking both the D. C. and Pennsylvania Bar examina- tions. He is a member of Delta Theta Phi, and, like most good students, his favorite subject is Constitu- tional Law. John Frederick Miller Versatile in all respects, our most cordial friend hails from the fair city of Basin, Wyoming. Before coming to Washington he attended Leland Stanford Junior College in California, brushing up on the technique of a politician, which he plans on becoming after getting the good old LL.B., and then passes the Wyoming and Idaho Bars. Incidentally, if you ever invite him over for the night, please have long bed sheets. Everett Paul Miller Sigma Delta Kappa Quiet, unassuming, and tolerant, Everett has found time to hold down an important post in the Treasury Department, win an LL.B., and time to carry many extra-curricular subjects. Elected Treasurer of Sigma Delta Kappa for ’39 and ’40, he conducted the post so efficiently that he was elevated to the post of Chan- cellor for ’40 and ’41, where he set a record that will go down in the annals of the fraternity as a goal for future Chancellors. William John Monticone “Hi, Pal!” is his favorite greeting, with an ever- pleasing smile. He left Newport, R. I., to attend the University of Detroit, where he labored during 1926 and 1927. Shortly after, he came to Washington, and in 1930 received his A.B.S. from Catholic University. Deciding he hadn’t enough schooling, he entered Na- tional. Spent one year as a member of the Army Air Corps in the capacity of a Flying Cadet. Monty will be successful in whatever he attempts to do. [ 63 ] ★ ★ ★ Paul Hawkins Moore George Seymour Morgan Forsaking his home in the Black Mountains of North Carolina, Paul came to Washington to work in the War Department. After finishing a tough course at George Washington University, he decided to round out his education at National in the field of law. We predict that this tall and handsome North Carolinian will find his name not only among the roster of law- yers, but also in the marriage license statistics. Delta Theta Phi George just couldn’t make up his mind. Eastern Illi- nois Teachers, Illinois University, George Washington University, and, at long last, National. On the Social Committee for two years, George got to know most everyone of his classmates. He was Delta Theta Phi’s choice for a seat in the Interfrat Council. Lately, how- ever, the “flying” bug and club have claimed him. Now that he is settled at National, he’s flying high, looking for some brunette, or mebbe blonde, to share the wealth with him. William B. Morris Sigma Nu Phi “Monitor Bill” — a Southern gentleman from Fairfax County, in the heart of Virginia. Bill is employed in the personnel office of the Forest Service in the Inte- rior Department. We must give credit where credit is due, and we would like to proclaim that “Big Bill” has a “Little Bill” that is bigger than “Big Bill.” After playing a prominent part in Sigma Nu Phi, he went to the Dogs (The Yellow ones). Like all poten- tial executives, golf is his source of relaxation — that and totin’ young Bill across the floor. Samuel Moss, Jr. Masonic Club Blessed with an all-embracing memory of absolutely un- limited scope (he sure can quote anything) , the Sena- tor graduated from the U. S. Preparatory School in New York before arriving at National. The “third” Senator from New York is also Vice-President of the Masonic Club. The class will never forget his friendly “tiffs” with Prof. Munter. He was married in 1914 and has two children. Good luck, Senator, in your new field of law. [ 64 ] Anne Gorman Murphy Kappa Beta Pi The Teachers College of Connecticut tried to keep Anne as a schoolmarm, but after receiving a scholar- ship she decided she’d rather be a “Portia,” and con- sequently entered National University. Anne was the only active coed on the debate team. She is also a member of Kappa Beta Pi and has been active in so- rority and scholastic enterprises. Keep it up, Anne, and New Britain, Conn., will have reason to be proud of their pretty daughter. Laps David McCord IV Sigma Nu Phi “Mac” is a native of Tennessee and is at present with the Civil Service Commission. He is an excellent stu- dent and an able debater, and if he does not enter active practice it will be a great loss to that profession. We wish him much success. Lawrence Agnew Myers Sigma Delta Kappa Lawrence is a native of the District. He graduated from Western High School and is established in pri- vate business. After he receives his “sheepskin” he anticipates taking the District, Maryland and Virginia bars. Lawrence is a member of both Sigma Delta Kap- pa and Alpha Kappa Phi fraternities. He was married in 1930 and is the father of two lovely children. Good luck in your legal future. Ethel Norene McDermott Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Norene has more scholastic honors to her credit than a lot of us have collectively. Her records are tops, as follows: 1938-39, Carusi Gold Medal for the highest average of the -Freshman Class; a Handbook of Equity for the highest grade in Equity Cases, and a National University ring awarded for outstanding scholarship by the Phi Delta Delta Sorority. She is a Kappa Beta Pi, as well as Sergeant-at-Arms of the Cy Press Club. Norene is obviously headed for great things. ★ [65] ★ ★ Samuel David McIlwain Persistence is his middle name and it brought him great success in the insurance business. No doubt his train- ing received at Mississippi College and the University of Mississippi has contributed to his success, too, and equipped him with those necessary attributes of alert- ness, keenness and a powerful imagination for hypo- thetical questions of law. His love for Real Property may soon lead him to affix permanently a home for two thereto. Donald J. McLaughlin Apex Honor Society Sigma Nu Phi Debonair Don, smooth and sophisticated, hails quite appropriately from that great metropolis of the Mid- West — Bloomfield, Indiana. A product of G. W. U. and the U. S. Naval Academy, Mac has at National played a leading roll as Circulation Manager of the Docket, as well as in the activities of Sigma Nu Phi. Never a dull moment will be experienced by Don’s clientele, because his dancing feet will tap out his legal rhythmic maxims. Edgar Caldwell McIntosh Mississippi scores again by sending another favorite son to join the roster of Nationalites. Before enrolling at N. U. he attended George Washington University, where his pre-legal training was obtained. When Edgar was elected President of the Senior Qass he entered upon his duties with an enthusiasm that was only sur- passed by his diplomacy. Under his genial guidance the Class of 1941 made history that will long be re- membered by the School, the faculty, and his grateful classmates. Russell Harrison McLean From a city that is famed for its legal maxims and its outstanding legal personages — Cambridge, Mass. — Rus- sell came to Washington. Before National, Russell attended Boston University. Of course, his favorite subject is common law pleading. Russell’s name even sounds legal-like, so he should be a fine attorney. [ 66 ] Jeax McManus Kappa Beta Pi Words could not express her tireless and sincere en- deavor. Jean has held the position of Chief of Per- sonnel, Grazing Section. Department of the Interior, and yet has found time to complete her law course at National. Before coming to the District, Jean gradu- ated from Heiman Commercial College in Sheridan. Wyoming. Although she intends to practice law, she hasn’t decided whether the locale will be the District of Columbia or out in God’s country — Wyoming. George Kxox McMullax Apex Honor Society Sigma Nu Phi In the Law Library of Congress. Mac acquired a thirst for legal lore and National became the fountain at which his thirst was quenched. The University of Mis- sissippi furnished Mac’s pre-legal training. During his Junior year the love bug bit him and the result was fatal, for he marched the now Mrs. Mac up to the altar. Honors galore have been bestowed upon him. having been President of his Freshman Oass. member of the Apex Honor Society, and Chancellor of his fraternity. Claude McMillan Delta Theta Phi Tearing himself away from the mountains of Tennes- see, where the grass grows tall to cover the stills, Claude left home, but not until he had finished his education at the State Teachers College of Johnson City. Claude has been prominent in his classes and has been com- mended for his excellent exam papers. He contemplates taking the D. C., Tennessee, and Florida bar examina- tions, and on practicing, too. As a member of three bars, Claude’s practice should be very lucrative. Roy Harold Neilsox Sigma Nu Phi Ray may always be found in his usual seat, studying industriously before class. Sort of a quiet, reserved fellow, he has a lot of knowledge stored away in his cranium which he doesn’t brag about. He is a native of Washington and aspires to follow in his brother’s footsteps as a judge. He ' s employed with F.H.A., and enjoys all-around sports and. incidentally, ladies, is still single. Rex Kenneth Nelson Delta Theta Phi Breezed in from Corydan, Iowa, and became associated with the United Press Association. Went to George Washington University before entering National, where he achieved quite an outstanding record. Rex is in favor of practicing law after he passes the D. C. Bar. In his spare time he enjoys playing the trumpet and golfing. Good luck! David T. O’Neal Dave, the Lion-Hearted, and a friend of humanity, was born and reared on a farm near Woodstock, Vir- ginia. He spent most of his early life managing his farms there. Dave came to Washington in 1930, and is now employed by the Agriculture Department. He plans the work and issues orders to many employees in experimental work at the National Arboretum. He has made many friends at National with his genial smile and cordial manner, and was elected by a large major- ity as Vice-President of the Junior Qass. Ernest B. Nowell Sigma Nu Phi Ernest was induced to leave Lawton, Oklahoma, by the Post Office Department. In the midst of his new sur- roundings he found a sweet little Maryland lass whom he persuaded to cast in her fortunes with his “for bet- ter or for worse.” Ernest is universally liked, as evi- denced by his election as First Vice-Chancellor of his legal fraternity, and further accentuated by his appoint- ment to the post of Literary Editor of the Docket. He will take the Oklahoma and D. C. bars. Like Sher- lock Holmes, he is an ardent devotee of the pipe- smoking art. • Philip Owaroff Phil has “a nose for news” and is employed as a newspaperman. Between “scoops,” however, Phil found time to study law. His home town is Jeannette, Penn- sylvania, and it is Phil who is going to put it on the map. We wish you luck in your legal career. [ 68 ] Sarah Ann Perrin Apex Honor Society Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres Club Sarah’s ever-present good nature, her willingness to be of service to her classmates, coupled with her ability to do everything well, have endeared her to her fellow students. This was evidenced by her unanimous choice for Class Secretary in her Senior year. Sarah has al- ways been an active member of the class, as well as of Phi Delta Delta Sorority and the Cy Pres Club, of which she was Secretary in her Junior year. Our best wishes go with you, Sarah, for success in all future ventures. Gerald L. Phelps Gerald comes to us after serving time at George Wash- ington University and the University of Minnesota. He is married — no children at present. Although his heme is in Minneapolis, Gerald intends to practice law in D. C. At times Gerald is almost an expert at golf — line up, fellows! Gordon J. Peterson In this corner we introduce a fellow who is determined to get that lucre back in Plentywood, Montana, after he passes the bar. Prospective opposing counselors, we warn you, stop, look, and listen before picking your case, because we know his record at National. A word to the Wise is sufficient. Curtis Homer Porterfield Apex Honor Society Delta Theta Phi Ever-smiling, with a winning manner, Curtis is as clean-cut as they come. Both Strayer’s Business Col- lege and the School of Graphic Arts Association occu- pied his academic life before National claimed him. Here honors have literally rained upon him: Chairman of the Scholarship Committee in his Junior year, As- sociate Editor of Midnight Oil, member of the Inter- collegiate Debating Squad, as well as Master Barrister of the Apex Honor Society, and active in Delta Theta Phi Fraternity. [ 69 ] ★ ★ ★ John B. Preblich Esther Cady Quinn Slow, calm, unruffled, John has a tremendous capacity for absorbing high quantities of information as dis- pensed from the fount of knowledge. Starting out at the Washington College of Law, he is now rounding out his legal lore quite appropriately at National. Far from home (Sebastopol, California; not Crimea), he and time are destined to march on. Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Cheerful, good-natured, and big-hearted (to put it con- servatively) , Esther’s bubbling, vivacious personality is nevertheless tinged with just a touch of shyness. A Kappa Beta Pi, Sergeant-at-Arms of the Cy Pres Club in her Junior year, and in her private life secretary to a Senator from Maryland. She is an expert stenogra- pher and a devotee to the art of “knitting.” Robert Louis Redding Phi Beta Gamma It is no wonder that Bob’s citrus crop dried up when he left Orlando. His love for his native state and his fruit is beautiful to behold. His ambition is to return to Florida, set up a law practice, and prune his fruit trees. Whenever he decides to do so, it will be done well, because that’s the way Bob works. He stems from “jolly old England,” which probably accounts for his love for the old common law. He has participated in practically all student and fraternal activities. He will be an honor to the University. James Charles Rhodes Sigma Nu Phi Jimmie, Uncle Sam’s nephew, works in the U. S. Maritime Commission. Discarding hobbies, he finds himself engrossed in studying legal tangles or errors of “the learned judge.” With a ready smile and friendly greeting — we can’t help but like Jimmie. He absorbs law like a sponge — retaining both law and principles, believe it or not. Probably his success is partly the result of former studies at Carnegie Institute of Tech- nology, George Washington University, and U. S. D. A. Graduate School. The D. C. Bar will gain a good lawyer. [ 70 ] Wallace Hills Rhodes Sigma Nu Phi Having mastered the intricacy of telephone mechanics, the Rule Against Perpetuities gave Rhodes no concern whatever. An inveterate fisherman who, finding some of his friends skeptical of his prowess, with his usual thoroughness, took up photography to prove his feats to those who would say him nay. Ernest S. Robinson Out of the great Volunteer State came Ernest to mas- ter the law at National. The same homespun humor that endeared Andy Jackson to the nation won Ernest many friends at National. He always had his lessons and his good grades are evidence of that fact. We chided Ernest about his hunting until he finally brought in the remnants of a duck. We now believe that he’s a good hunter, but we are sure that he’s going to be a better lawyer. Edwin Richards Sigma Nu Phi Ed left Kansas right after or with the first dust storms — decided that Washington was a good place to test his talents. He entered National University in 1938. From then on we have seen this serious-minded youth progress rapidly. Ed knows that law is a varied field and thus deems it necessary to like all of his subjects so as to reap their benefits. 9 Glover Way Rogers After completing his work at Lebanon Valley College, Glover left Harrisburg, Pa., to join the family of the Railroad Retirement Board in Washington. Instead of choosing one of the more spectacular branches of the law in which to specialize, his decision has been to center his main efforts toward the mastery of Wills and Administration. James Philip Rogers Sigma Nu Phi Masonic Club Jim is the Rogers of Calvert and Rogers, Inc. He is a prince of good fellows. His hospitality is a compli- ment to his native State of Virginia and a byword at school. Remember the farewell party he gave for Gor- don Knight? Jim will use his knowledge of law as an aid in his business. His is one of the best liked per- sonalities in the Senior Class. Jim belongs to the Masonic Club and is a member of Sigma Nu Phi. Samuel Rosinoff Alpha Beta Phi Sam, the Chaplin of Alpha Beta Phi, is the official book reviewer for Midnight Oil. Most of us couldn’t find time to read our texts or even the sports page, but Sam outdistances us by reading extra-curricular books and then reporting to us about them. He is employed in the Internal Revenue Bureau, and after he takes the bar he will practice law. Albert R. Romero Sigma Delta Kappa Romeo, where art thou? Tall, dark and romantic-look- ing A1 comes from the land of pretty senoritas. He appears to be able to fall into a “bolero” step at any time or would look well in a toreador’s costume. En- joys horseback riding and wants to practice. St. Mich- ael’s College in Santa Fe, New Mexico, is his alma mater. Favorite subject is Domestic Relations. Good luck, old pal! M ABEL L. ROSS Phi Delta Delta It took a transcontinental trip to get Mabel here to us, but we’ve got her, and are right glad of it, for she came clear from Los Angeles. She has been honored by Phi Delta Delta by being chosen as their Chaplain. Though still single, she won’t be for very long, if a certain young man can persuade her to give that much- sought-after consent. [ 72 ] William Denton Ryan Sigma Delta Kappa Bill is a National thoroughbred, having come to the Law School from the E. and G. School. He’s bailiff for Sigma Delta Kappa and is a member of the Mid- night Oil staff. To the Satuiday night classes Bill is often accompanied by a lovely blonde, which causes some consternation among his classmates. With his Irish wit and knowledge of the law, life should be a song for Bill. John Virgil Sample Perhaps Booth Tarkington had John in mind when he wrote “The Gentleman From Indiana.” A very witty chap with a pleasant personality, he also numbers among his accomplishments a flair for clothes. He puts in his working hours at the Home Owners Loan Corporation and his leisure hours — well, we won’t say more — but don’t be surprised if he’ll hear wedding bells very soon. He expects to use his legal knowledge to further him- self in the governmental service. Frances Helen Scardefield Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club It is rather difficult to find adequate and sufficiently complimentary words to describe Frances. Everyone who has known her has been enriched in some way. This applies particularly to those who have been fortunate enough to read her notes. She has a smile that warms your heart and a mind that charms you with its excel- lence. She will have no difficulty solving her problems, whether they be legal or domestic. Kappas are proud to list her among their membership. Russell C. Schildt Clyde comes from Thurmont, Maryland. A man of sterling quality with an ambition to “go places” in the world of higher education. His B.C.S. at Benjamin Franklin University fits him to be an expert accountant and, combined with his ability as a lawyer, he will be successful. Collecting corncobs is his hobby. The Wash- ington Daily News will lose a good man, if he should ■decide to practice law. [ 73 ] ★ ★ ★ Harry G. Schmidt We hear “Schmitty” is an expert stenographer of great speed in the Veterans Administration. His ambi- tion is to shuffle out to Buffalo to hang out his shin- gle. You can always find him in the library before class delving through the books in search for more knowledge. His pet peeve is 5:30 classes. Nineteen hundred and thirty-eight was a lucky year for him, as he trudged down the aisle of marital bliss. Keep up the good work; you’ll get there. John Franklin Scholl Sigma Delta Kappa Little John attended the School of Economics and Gov- ernment in 1928. From there he found out that a nearby law book company couldn’t get along without him. Seeing so many fine young men buying these law books, John decided he’d join them. So, in 1938, he did and National University now profits by his pres- ence. During .he course of his second year John found out that marriage was a fine institution, so he entered it. We look to see John filibustering on the bill out of the sovereign State of Virginia in the near future. Harvey P. Schneiber Delta Theta Phi “Schneiby,” to you, is full of vim, vigor and celerity and exerts his good efforts as a Tariff Examiner for I. C. C. Served time at Northwestern U., and is un- decided as to whether or not it would be worth-while hanging out his shingle, but the opinion among the students and professors is that he will go places, be- cause he’s got what it takes. Keep up that manly per- sonality of yours and we will see you on the bench one of these days. How come we never heard him bragging about the big fish he didn’t catch? Alfred Jacob Schroeder Sigma Delta Kappa A clerk for the Post Office Department, A1 is striving towards greater heights in the field of law — perhaps to practice in the “Windy City.” Good luck to you! Don’t forget to use those arguments displayed in the classroom. Favorite subject is criminal law, and his goal is to follow in the footsteps of Clarence Darrow, not to mention his hobby of chasing “blondes.” Is an eligible bachelor, too. [ 74 ] Mary Natalie Schultz Kappa Beta Pi Mary may be accused of being late to classes frequently, but never a word from anyone when she turned on the ever-pleasing smile. Her marks may well be used as evidence of the fact that she was a studious and sincere student of the law. Her fast shorthand, which she keeps in practice as a private secretary, has enabled her to get all the professors’ lectures, and her classmates surely appreciated her notes. Oscar Joseph See Masonic Club Oscar, a member of the Metropolitan Police Force, shows the same initiative in his work and studies that made him an “all-state” end in his high school days. He is always in class, seriously and earnestly perfecting his knowledge of the law. He does not intend to prac- tice, but believes that his law will enable him to carry out his official duties in a more efficient manner. Os- car’s outstanding trait is his cheerful disposition and his cheery greetings have a ring of sincerity which has won for him innumerable friends. Morris S. Schwartz Morris is quiet and an unassuming gentleman who came to National University after having completed his pre- legal work at George Washington University. He is now in legal regulatory work with the Interstate Com- merce Commission, and plans to take both the District of Columbia and North Carolina bars. To whatever goal Morris aspires, we know that he will succeed. Marian Harlan Seltzer Apex Honor Society Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Marian Seltzer, nee Harlan, is a most charming twig of the family tree from which her home town in Iowa derived its name. We are all indebted to Marian for the three years in which she pounded out review lec- tures on her stenotype machine. In her Junior year she was Secretary of the class, elected as Barrister of Rec- ords of the Apex Honor Society, and Vice-President of the Cy Pres Club. Marian has been active in all student activities. To her neighboring colleagues she’s known as “Butch.” Kenneth V. Shane Whenever you see a pipe or stogie coming along, Ken will be behind it. He is noted for his good humor, pleasing personality and hearty wit, and never fails to correct the profs when necessary. He attended and graduated from Browns Central College and Blackburn College. The Illinois National Guard claimed his services for four years. His ambition is to follow Jean Boardman’s footsteps. His pet peeve is Moot Court and hobby is farming. Luck, old boy; you will have plenty of competition from your fellow students. Lacey Clinton Sharp Apex Honor Society Phi Betn Gamma He is Vice-President of the Senior Class, member of the Apex Honor Society and Interfraternity Council, which gives us the opportunity of applying Res Ipsa Loquitur. He hails from Texas and brings to National and his fellow classmates a friendliness which is as enjoyable as the sweet breezes from the Great Panhan- dle. It is our prediction that Lacy will one day have his name on a door in the House Office Building, where even now he so loves to tarry. Walter Joseph Shipman Sigma Delta Kappa Walter is a First Sergeant in the United States M a- rine Corps, having over nine years’ service behind him. Before entering the service he lived in Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania. Walter intends to take the D. C. Bar and he should pass it, for his hobby is “studying.” Samuel Augustus Silver From the sunny city of Raleigh, North Carolina, where the tobacco auctioneers sound like the Indianapolis speed track, emerged our Samuel, who has credited him- self with a degree of B.S. at North Carolina State. He has continued to humor his pet hobby of reading by studying the great field of law and now emerges from National University with an LL.B. [ 76 ] Joseph Fletcher Simmermon Sigma Nu Phi Masonic Club A native of Trenton, New Jersey, and not just a party from across the tracks, on the elite side, Joseph has determined to be one of those most useful fellows wherever he can be. He attended Drexel Institute in Philadelphia, Pa., and immediately found employment with the General Accounting Office. Josie will always be remembered for his everlasting and untiring efforts and success as Photographic Editor for this Docket. His popularity and ability may well be evidenced by his election to the high office of President of the Ma- sonic Club. Roy D. Simpson Delta Theta Phi Hailing from the good old Mardi Gras city down in the Pelican State of Louisiana, Roy joined the forces of the Social Security Board. Roy decided he not only liked to be an engineer of model trains, which is his hobby, but that he also would like to learn the func- tions of law. Hard seats and no place to take notes have not hindered Roy from absorbing law, but will always remain a pet peeve. Louis Simon Flying Club A native of Washington, Lou is associated with the firm of Young and Simon. A varied career at the Uni- versity of Virginia laid the foundation for his equally varied one at National. His activities on the Midnight Oil, on the Docket, and in the Flying Club, together with research in his favorite subject of torts, have kept him very busy. What time he is not snapping pictures of unsuspecting coeds, he is flying one or more planes at a local airport. May his practice of the law take him as high as a certain Stimson. Talbot Sinclair Sigma Delta Kappa Like so many Virginians, Talbot, who was born and reared in historic Alexandria, is starting out with law, too. Talbot intends to take the two most difficult bar examinations — New York and the District. While at National, Talbot was Treasurer of Mu Chapter, Sigma Delta Kappa, and actively participated in student ac- tivities. With offices in New York and the District, Talbot should have a very lucrative practice. [ 77 ] ★ ★ ★ Joseph E. Slater Joe should be a general counsel for a railroad company, for he comes from Altoona, Pa., where the trains all stop to recuperate from the mountains. Besides that, Joe has had experience with the Interstate Commerce Commission. Joe will take the D. C. Bar in June, and we are sure he will make a perfect score on his Real Property paper, because it’s his favorite subject. J. Slater Smith The cool springs at Green Cove Springs, Florida, could not keep Slater from the police department of Wash- ington, D. C., where he is employed as a clerk. Slater is a politician from away back, having participated in the University of Florida’s politics as well as those of the State. While at N. U. he served as Vice-President of the Freshman Class, member of the Executive Coun- cil of the Senior Class, and Chairman of the Corona- tion Ball. Slater’s big smile and engaging personality have won him many friends, and we are sure that they will be assets to the rising young attorney in his Flor- ida practice. Trueman C. Slingluff Here’s another student who found Constitutional Law more fun than work. “Sling,” who has just a good sense of humor, helped to enliven an otherwise dull lecture and an apropos story. We predict that his legal future will be well underway after the District Bar results are announced. Tera Math a Smith Tera’s nonchalance around examination times and her quiet, smooth, and reticent manners may be the reason for her thorough learning of law. Midland, Alabama, will soon be having one of its native daughters as a practicing attorney, which may well be a warning for any opposing counsel. [ 78 ] Allen Thomas Spurrier Sigma Nu Phi Still loyal to the land of his birth, Spurrier commutes from Maryland to the General Accounting Office and National University. He received his pre-legal work at Washington College at Chestertown (still in Mary- land). An old married man of four summers, he is an inveterate fisherman and is generally in the dog- house (color: yellow). Nevertheless, he gives “his Freda” appreciated jitterbug demonstrations on the slightest provocation. His loyal and conscientious ef- forts on behalf of his friends and the organizations with which he is affiliated are indicative of the high caliber contribution he will render his chosen profession. Clifford Earl Strawn Delta Theta Phi From the deep South, Cliff came to Washington to join the Government’s lending program. Having a B.S. degree from the University of Alabama, he came to National University to get his legal training. Although married last year, his previous training and present rank in the R. O. T. C. bid fair to take precedent over his marital obligations and take him into the military serv- ice of his country. Orman Harold Stalker Apex Honor Society Sigma Delta Kappa “Buddy” presents the carefree nonchalance of a fellow whose ambition is to glide through life. Underneath this happy-go-lucky exterior one finds a very serious- minded individual who is determined to make a success of his life. With his knowledge of law and his love for flying, he has a “sure-win” combination. Buddy’s “Nat Chat” column assisted in keeping the students well informed for two years. He also served as Master of Laws of the Apex Honor Society. Although his ambitions may soar, we know “Buddy” will reach the ultimate goal for which he aspires. Marion Gilmore Strawn Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres Club Our hats are off to the City of Omaha, Nebraska, for sending us such a sweet little girl as Marion has proved herself to be. The Interstate Commerce Commission chose wisely and well when they obtained her services. She is active in both the Phi Delta Delta Sorority and the Cy Pres Club, of which she was Treasurer in her Junior year. Marion is another who capitulated to the wiles of Cupid and became the bride of classmate Cliff at the end of her Freshman year. [ 79 ] ★ ★ ★ William H. Swan Sigma Nu Phi Born in Madrid (Iowa, folks) , Bill nevertheless came to Washington to study at Benjamin Franklin and Na- tional Universities, as well as lending his accounting ability to the government service. Wedding bells rang for him two years ago. He spends his spare time tak- ing pictures and relaxing on the golf course. Planning to take bar examinations in Iowa and the District, Swan should crack ’em both his first t:y. Harry Marbury Tayloe Harry grew up in historic Westmoreland County, Vir- ginia; attended Hampdcn-Sydney College, whence he came to Washington. His selection of National Uni- versity to further his ambition was influenced by the fact that his great uncle, Charles C. Tucker, one-time Court Reporter, taught at National. Harry thinks, talks, acts, and believes in law, but he is still well liked. This may be the reason for his excellent grades which he maintained throughout his three years at National. We know that his career as a student will be second only to his career as a practicing attorney. Henry Eldridge Sweet Erudite and also polite, Henry, who has made quite a name for himself by his grades at National, also at- tended Browns’ University and Harvard before deciding to polish off his learning of law. Henry can generally be found poring over his books until they suddenly change the texts in the middle of the course, and then you may find him somewhere canoeing or boating in an effort to cool his ire. William Carr Tayloe Bill, a serious, dignified, and conscientious student, is a gentleman and friend worth having. Like his brother and classmate, Harry, he well represents Virginia aris- tocracy. His outstanding trait is the firmness with which he holds his connections. “Work-at-Night” Tayloe is engaged in the real estate business in the District, and with the passing of the bar he plans to practice law. A clientele in real estate will be the foundation for a most successful career, which we pre- dict for “Just Plain Bill.’’ [ 80 ] Ada Lorexe Taylor Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Sometimes we wish that National would be a five-year school, because we just got to know Ada in our Senior year after she presented such a good moot court case. We liked her friendly smile and her cheery greeting. Ada works at the Veterans Administration and is active in Cy Pres and Kappa Beta Pi. Dan Leo Tierxey Sigma Nu Phi A proud native of Dubuque, Iowa . . . efficient ac- countant for the Department of Agriculture . . . good loser of wardrobes . . . happy groom of less than a year . . . champion golfer . . . fluent quipwriter ex- traordinary . . . fleabitten Yaller Dawg . . . hard- working newspaper and yearbook staff member . indefatigable defender of all that Nationals and Ameri- cans hold sacred . . . meet your favorite Irishman. Dan Leo Tierney. Richard Joseph Tear A quiet, easy-going fellow, ‘‘Dick” has constantly been of assistance to his classmates. His notes, which have been mimeographed to benefit the whole class, have been greatly appreciated. He is an able student and his questions are always direct and pertinent to the subject. Richard, or “Ferdinand, ” served four years in the United States Marines and his stories of Nicarauga keep one spellbound. His specialty ' is an excellent scrambled egg and roe dish. Di ck plans to practice law in the District of Columbia, and we know he will make a success of it. Culvin S. Totten Culvin, our Hoosier friend, is a man with a colorful background and numerous abilities. He is a veteran of John J. Pershing ' s First Army. He served as aeroplane technician and crew chief in the U. S. Air Service. He is qualified as a senior tool and diemaker, but is likewise familiar with the field of music. In his Junior year Culvin was a member of the Debate Club and Associate Editor of Midnight Oil. He has given all his spare time in his Senior year to managing the De- bate Qub. Culvin expects to practice in the District of Columbia. His future success is assured. ★ ★ Richard Alexander Trammell Phi Beta Gamma Richard is an employee of the District of Columbia, being Assistant Clerk of the Municipal Court. After passing the District bar he intends to stay right here and practice. At the present time he is single, but we all have very high hopes for him in the near future. With his practical experience about the Court House and his good background at N. U., Dick should be an A- 1 lawyer. Rosanna P. Turnbull Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Rosanna came to National from Pawnee, Oklahoma, as a shy, brown-eyed lassie, heart-whole and fancy-free. Dan Cupid intervened, however, and in her Junior year Rosanna completely capitulated and was marched right up to the altar where she said her “I do.” Her hobbies are golf and music, and her favorite subject, of all things, is Criminal Law. Chester Seth Turechek Sigma Nu Phi Chester, a cornhusker from Nebraska, has taken law at National in piecemeal fashion. He has won staunch friends in each of the classes which he attended. Al- though blondes, dancing and sports have taken much of his time, “Ches” has nevertheless maintained a high average in his studies. The Marines will no doubt be assisted by Chester, but if so he will come out on top with them the same as he did in his law work. Patrick R. Turpin Here is a fellow who is sincerely liked by all who know him. His law studies assisted him in getting a promo- tion to the Social Security Board, and his legal knowl- edge will, we believe, take him still further. Pat, who was married in 1939, brought his wife to school to take his notes and not to keep him awake. Although seemingly quiet, Pat has a sense of humor which de- lights all of his associates and which will make for him many friends and bring him much success. [ 82 ] Donald Dean Van Kirk Robert McKee Varnon Don is employed by the Interstate Audit Company, which concern is due to lose an excellent employee very soon, as he has his heart set on a law career. Contract law is his favorite subject, and may well turn out to be his specialty. By way of recreation, Don wanders far and near with a camera as his only companion. Reginald Ritmour Venable “Reg” is a Southern gentleman from V. M. L, so sturdy and staunch he stands — though single now, it won’t be long before he can give commands. Spent his childhood in Farmville, Virginia, among the cows and chickens, and is now an adjuster for Aetna Casualty and Surety Company. First Lieutenant in the Cavalry and plays a mean game of golf. You should hear him tell about his wild turkey hunts. When choosing a place in which to capitalize on his natural talents, Bob picked Washington rather than the home town of Greensboro, N. C. He earned his de- gree at the American Intsitute of Banking and then entered National. The Riggs National Bank, his cur- rent place of employment, furnishes the wherewithal by which Bob is ascending the educational ladder. Joseph John Walaity Joe, who helps Uncle Sam check his accounts at the G. A. O., came to Washington from that great me- tropolis — New York City. However, Joe likes Washing- ton and he’s going to take the D. C. bar and perhaps practice here, too His favorite subject is real property and for relaxation he likes the strenuous game of rennis. Gordon Lee Walker Sigma Nu Phi Gordon can best be described by that well-known phrase, “Prince of a Fellow.” His always beaming smile and pat on the back has helped many a fellow student who had become discouraged. He is a serious- minded legal student and his questions have forced the reply of “I don’t know” or “I’ll look it up” from many professors. His entire class wish him luck in life. Graham Weigle Graham won’t enlighten us as to his particular favorite among all of the various legal subjects, but we think that it should be Criminal Law, inasmuch as the Secret Service of the Treasury Department constitutes his pres- ent employment. In statute he is diametrically opposed to a Lilliputian, but his discourses in Constitutional Law are of a length that far exceeds his height. Fred Lawrence Weber Delta Theta Phi Tall, dark and good-looking, this former football hero is now a No. 1 Auditor with the General Accounting Office. His duck hunting is only what you read about in the books, because there never is any evidence of the wild fowl on the table. He, too, has succumbed; his favorite professor is Dr. Cassidy. Happily married, he says redheads are his weakness. He claims Ridgefield Park, New Jersey, as his home and doesn’t want to practice; thinks it’s too much grief. Rose Weiss Iota Tau Tau Cy Pres Club The “City of Angels,” Los Angeles, sent us one of its own in Rose. Entering into National activities with zest from the very first, she became Secretary of her class in her first year at school, served on the Educa- tional Committee in her second year, and was a mem- ber of the Docket staff as a Senior. As hobbies, Rose collects original prints, although she owes primary alle- giance to her violin. [ 84 ] John Price Wetherill John is a Lieutenant Commander in the United States Navy, for which position he has an educational back- ground gained at the University of Pennsylvania, George Washington University, and the University of Mary- land. He has been married for quite a few years, and his little family consists of a wife and two children. As a Navy man, his hobbies are, quite apropos, shoot- ing and fishing. Rollie Howard White, Jr. Rollie left the University of Maryland and became a banker, being at present employed by the National Savings and Trust Company. Get after him, girls — just think, he will be a banker and a lawyer, too, and what more could be desired? Favorite subject is Equity and his pet peeve is “School on Saturday night.” Harrold Bernard Wheeler The Law School of the University of Baltimore num- bered Harrold among its students for two years, after which he transferred to National. Until such time as that awe-inspiring hurdle known as the bar examination has been conquered, he is earning his daily bread as an employee of the Social Security Board. George O. Witbeck The Reconstruction Finance Corporation brought George from Salt Lake City, Utah — otherwise known to most of us as the home of the Mormons. His previous edu- cation was gained at the University of Utah. George believes in aiming high, so has claimed Constitutional Law to be his favorite subject. William James Wye Jim is employed by the Patent Office while pursuing his LL.B. at National. He comes to us with an S.B. de- gree from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. With such a background as this, his present state of so-called “single-blessedness” makes him a very desir- able catch for some member of the opposite sex. James Martin Young Delta Theta Phi By applying the same fight and spirit he used as an amateur mittman at University of Maryland, Jim had no trouble defeating Blackstone. Between rounds in this fight he found time to win his wings as a pilot and likes flying well enough to park a new car in Washington and fly to Miami between semesters. Theodore Reichert Zeller Delta Theta Phi A man who now has a perfect combination of a B.C.S. from Strayers College of Accountancy and an LL.B. from National can boast that he has the tools to work any problem General Accounting has to offer. A valu- able member to the Delta Theta Phi, as a Chancellor of Law, Zeller is still full of ambition to pass the bar and practice. As a member of the Executive Commit- tee of 1940, he also was a very valuable and useful fellow to the Senior Class. [ 86 ] SENIOR CLASS HISTORY This, the history of the class of 1941, must be brief because the life of the class is short. But it does have a history and each of its members has one, interesting, if we could but tell it. They have come from all parts of the country; north, south, east and west. They have come from all walks of life. They are of many races, of many religions, and of various political philosophies. With similar desires, hopes and ambitions their life history lines converged steadily upon one focal point — the entry into the class of 1941. Perhaps this class is no different from other graduating classes of the Law School of National University although we, ourselves, believe it is the best. It has the distinction of being the largest. It had an enrollment of 538 students in 1938 and the graduating class numbers approximately 314. It has the honor of being the first class to graduate since the school has been professionally approved by the American Bar Association as a Grade A law school. It is proud that it is solvent. During its first years lasting friendships were cemented. The second year has been one of understanding, cooperation and loyalty. Only graduation remains before the class members will again spread into all parts of the country. It is safe to predict its members will take their place in the arena of public affairs and bring credit to our beloved Alma Mater. During the life of the class the school has taken many strides forward. The Midnight Oil school paper was organized. Apex Honor Society was formulated. The Debating Club was revived. A Flying Club was founded. The Coronation Ball became an added attraction to the Docket activities. The Commencement Ball became an annual feature of the graduating festivities. Many of the foregoing were the result of active participation and promotion by the Class of 1941 and its mem- bers. It is regrettable that the active life of the class must close. But we should console ourselves with the thought that during its life we have made enduring friendships and have found inspiration and guidance from professors and fellow classmates. We are comforted that we can, and should, in after years meet frequently to review and to relive the happy and fruitful days of the Class of 1941. Genevieve A. Yonkers, Historian .

Election of class officers for the year took place on schedule in October. Unfor- tunately, many of the class held themselves aloof from active participation, either in the selection of candidates or in willingness to serve if nominated. However, the offices of president and vice-president created much interest and were closely con- tested, necessitating a final run-off between Milo Wilson and Fletcher Mitchell on one side and William McAleer and John Clardy on the other. Officers chosen were: Milo Wilson, President; Fletcher Mitchell, Vice-President; Alice Farquhar, Secre- tary; Ralph Picchiello, Treasurer; William Vassil, Sergeant-at-arms; and Ira Reese, Historian. At an early meeting of the class thereafter, the president appointed members to the various committees, including a committee to consider and draft any necessary changes in the Constitution. Besides a dance, several means of raising funds for the treasury were agreed upon. These plans, the class assessment and a financially suc- cessful dance enabled the Class of ’42 to take care of its obligations and yet leave the treasury in a solvent condition. Students, alumni, faculty and friends converged on the Carlton Hotel the night of April 19th to make the Junior Prom the gala event of the entire school year. Thanks due the entertainment committee. Amid the toils of work and study only too few moments of relaxation for comradeship and conviviality were to be gleaned. Not soon forgotten will be those sorority socials, fraternity smokers, flying club breakfasts, and other impromptu gatherings. It has always seemed to this writer that with the advent of this class National University took a decided uptrend in affairs generally and in intra-University activ- ities particularly. In addition to initiating the National University Flying Club and attracting the CAA scholarships here, the Class of ’42 has given impelling influence and strong support to the Debating Society, the Midnight Oil and the Queen con- tests. We have seen and felt the effects of the Apex Honor Society, a comprehen- sive and convenient law library, and approval by the American Bar Association. Mindful of the high ideals and worthy purposes of this Institution, we dedicate ourselves to the task of meritorious achievement — mark after mark — until the final goal shall have been reached.

Siff vi »ii f« ( ;v; ww m ZdMgtik; IHREE APEX HONOR SOCIETY The Society was formed in 1940, by a group of eight far-sighted students who thought it equitable to confer honor upon those undergraduates, who, by their zealous and consistent activity in University interests had merited the honor of public recognition. It was felt that any student could isolate himself with his books and eventually emerge a prodigy of erudition; however, in the eyes of the Society, he would not necessarily be an honor student — he would also have to possess those qualities of character and person- ality which render his membership in the Society desirable. Though there is no discrimination against race, creed, color or sex, a student must qualify under the new point system by acquiring at least fifty points, thirty of which are awarded for a minimum scholastic average of 85%. After completion of the first term of the Sophomore year, a student of the Law School with the requisite number of points may make application to the Society for consideration for membership. The Society is further limited to twenty-four active mem- bers. The Apex Honor Society is the only organization of its kind in National Univer- sity, and as evidence of its successful operation, extra-curricular activities have already increased by reason of students desiring to qualify for membership in the Society.

Cy Pres — " The nearest thing” to a bar association that the law school affords its women members — fosters the spirit of " social improvement, edu- cational advancement and promotion of good fellowship.” The Cy Pres Club was organized on October 2, 1920, the year after women were admitted to the University, by the Misses Jane Elizabeth New- ton, Donna M. Davis, Janette Wilensky, Anna M. Lombard and Lula Prather. On May 5, 1932, the Club was duly incorporated and a charter granted in the City of Washington, D. C. Membership is open to all women students in the School of Economics and Government as well as in the Law School, and the anniversary year records the active membership of more than seventy-five students, as well as a large honorary alumni member- ship. Four outstanding social functions are held each year: the tea for the Freshmen in September, the Fall Luncheon, the George Washington’s Birth- day banquet, and the Spring breakfast for the installation of officers. To the founders of the Club, to the alumni members, many of whom are listed among the prominent members of the bar, and to Mrs. Charles F. Carusi and Mr. Godfrey L. Munter through whose guidance and inspiration we have attained our present standing, Cy Pres extends her deepest gratitude.

Anne Murphy, Ralph Gasque, and Harry Gaberman arguing in favor of a union with the British commonwealth of nations, dropped a 3 to 2 decision to Marquette University of Milwaukee over the aid, but later won from Lehigh Uni- versity at Bethlehem, Pennsylvania. This team also met Bucknell at Lewisburg, Pennsylvania. Culvin Totten, Murray Comarow, and Charles Gar lock, upholding the negative of the British Union question, took the measure of Bucknell here in Washington, and the United States Military Academy at West Point. David Fegan, John Levendis, and Harcourt Campbell clashed with the City College of New York in a non-decision debate broadcast in New York, at which time they maintained the affirmative of the Pan-American union proposition. Later they encountered Carnegie Tech. These events serve only as a prelude to greater accomplishments in the years to come. [ 122 ] INTRA-CLASS TEAM Culvin S.

Simmermon Photographic Editor Louis Simon Photographic Technician EDITOR ' S MESSAGE If it was possible I would like to thank personally everyone who has contributed to the success of the Docket for 1941. Without the interest, support and encouragement of the entire school it would be impossible to create this annual supplement to the history of National University. To the staff of the Docket for 1941, who cultivated a small idea into this volume, who sacrificed time and energy, we owe an everlasting debt of gratitude. Particular appre- ciation is due to George Giammittorio, Business Manager, who took over the responsi- bility of the Docket and who was the first Business Manager in the history of National to make the assets equal the liabilities. We likewise acknowledge the editing done by Margaret Lamoreaux, Associate Editor. More than thanks are owed to the Photographic Staff, Joseph Simmermon, Louis Simon and C. Gibson Davis. Although few seniors realized that there was an artist in the class, the caricatures throughout this book are the work of Arthur Bonham. Much credit should be accorded Ernest Nowell, the Literary Editor, and his assistant, Ernest Davies, for their work on the Senior section. To the Social Editor, Evelyn Krupp, who acted as stenographer, adviser, and did the many odd jobs that usually go unappre- ciated, we extend our appreciation. To all the staff, the Senior and Junior Class Presidents and the class representatives we thank you. It is also proper that we should acknowledge the fine work of Buckingham Studios and particularly the courtesies extended to us by Miss Keebler. The fine work of the National Engraving Company and the Benson Printing Company is likewise acknowledged. If there be errors or omissions in this volume we hope that you will forgive and forget them, for we did the very best that we could. Our wish is that this book may be a " prologue for what is past.” Lon Kile. [ 128 ] Altho A. Allen Patrick Bowman Charles D. Crandall C.

Seith Treasurer, The Flying Club With the assistance of Dean Eugene Carusi and Charles E. Ford the nucleus of the flying club drew up its charter and applied to the National Intercollegiate Flying Club for an official charter. At a formal dinner meeting on June 14, 1940, Lt. Col. Larner of the National Aero- nautics Association presented the charter to the National University Flying Club. Guest of honor at the banquet was Rear Admiral J. H. Towers, U. S. N. The club selected its air base at Congressional Airport, Rockville, Maryland, because of its availability and equipment and due to the fact that a majority of its members sprouted their wings there. Besides many informal and instructive " doughnut breakfasts” at the airport, the most important event took place at Hyde Field, Clinton, Maryland, where the Flying Club’s initial air meet met with success and left all with the desire for bigger and better air exhibitions. The club’s pledge and purpose is to foster the national objectives of the N.I.F.C. in the development of college flying and to abide at all times by such operating standards established by the N.I.F.C. It’s immediate purpose is to allow National’s " legal eagles” an outlet for their air aspirations and talents. Keeping abreast with progress the National University Flying Club has added much to the prestige of the school and the future should hold continued success toward higher minds and better flying.

Good fellowship, one of the cardinal principles of Freemasonry, has been proclaimed during the past two decades; and student scholarships bear tangi- ble evidence of its charity and are a tribute to the generosity of the late Dr. Charles F. Carusi. Through the moulding and strengthening of the character of the individ- ual man, Freemasonry has sought to improve the general human welfare. Today, when the world seems to have lost all balance and reason, we are more cognizant of the increasing need for fraternal harmony; and realizing those tasks which are before us as we seek to teach the laws of man, we are ever mindful of the Laws of the Great Architect of the Universe, Maker and Ruler of all worlds.

A contest to name the embryonic news- paper was announced in the first issue, a single sheet, and the judges, after exam- ining the entries, finally awarded the prize to Dr. Gellerman’s selection — Mid- night Oil. Earl J. Cox, Class of 1940, and well- known for his excellent work on the Docket of that year as Associate Editor, was selected as editor-in-chief of the news- paper. Earl-Clayton Grandstaff, ’42, and Elmer L. Jenkins, ’41, were made asso- ciate editors. With th e beginning of the fall term Earl-Clayton Grandstaff became editor- in-chief and Michael J. Walsh, managing editor of the Oil. Genevieve Yonkers was appointed associate editor. The newspaper expanded, both in scope and circulation, despite the many difficulties encountered which are only natural in an evening law school publication. In January of 1941 a change in the editorial staff again placed Earl Cox in charge as editor, with an editorial board composed of Genevieve Yonkers, Samuel Schevack and William Willett. Midnight Oil has had tough sledding like every infant publication. The stormy period has been weathered and ' we” of the Oil are proud of our child. With the foundations established Mid- night Oil is looking forward to an optimistic and influential future. STAFF Helen May Bloedorn Current Legal Register William Ryan . . .

" THESE WORDS OF EDWIN MARKHAM SERVE AS A MOTTO FOR THE FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES IN THESE DAYS OF DARK DESPAIR. TO STRENGTHEN GOOD FELLOWSHIP, RAISE THE STAND- ARD OF ETHICS, AND ESTABLISH GREATER GOALS FOR THE LEGAL PROFESSION ARE A FEW OF THE AIMS OF THE FRATERNITIES AND SORORITIES. TO THIS END THEY HAVE ACCOMPLISHED MUCH AND WITH AN INCREASED UNITY OF SPIRIT AND COURAGE WILL KEEP THE STAR OF BROTHERHOOD BRIGHT. FOUR ALPHA BETA PHI Legal Fraternity ALPHA CHAPTER Incorporated under the Laws of the District of Columbia , 1923 Honorary Members Judge Milton Strasburger Alvin Newmeyer Isadore Hershfield Since its creation in 1923 the Alpha Beta Phi legal Fraternity has had one creed — to bring out the best in its members — and but one purpose — to use its influence as an organization for the betterment of its component parts. 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 organiza- tion-sponsored debates and essay contests on legal subjects. These competitive pur- suits 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 composition 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 Washington, and the members have invariably performed those fraternal acts which could only reflect favorably upon their organization.

Davis Harry Gaberman Max Goldberg Samuel Moss, Jr. Nathan Rosenberg [I57J Simon Sherman ★ ★ ★ In the Spring of 1939, a select group of students in the National University Law School, formed a local fraternity for the furtherance of friendly association and mutual aid in curricular activities — this group called itself the Beta Lambda Sigma Law Fraternity. Realizing the advantages of a nation-wide affiliation, this group sought to establish a chapter of the great national law fraternity, Delta Theta Phi at the University. On January 26, 1941, the Charles Evans Hughes Senate was formally brought into existence. Personal permission for this honor having been granted by the present Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. [ 153 ] Peter Thomas Beardsley Vicc-Dean William H.

This meeting was highly successful and resulted in the formation of the Council. In due course a constitution was drawn up and submitted and, on the tenth day of February, 1939, was adopted by the following fraternities: Sigma Delta Kappa, Phi Beta Gamma, Alpha Beta Phi, Delta Theta Phi. The constitution provides that the council consists of two representatives from each fraternity, the present officers and representatives being: President, N. Battle Hales; Vice-President, Harry Gaberman; Secretary, Robert Red- ding; Treasurer, Hobart House; Sigma Delta Kappa, Ellison D. Smith, Jr.; Alpha Beta Phi, Max Goldberg; Phi Beta Gamma, Lacey Sharp; Delta Theta Phi, Curtis Porterfield. Aside from promoting the mutual interest of its component activities, it strives to inculcate the altruism and ethics of the legal profession, to promote the welfare of the student body, to further the best interest of the University itself, and to foster those ideals of legal training foremost in American tradition. In its short history, the Inter- Fraternity Council has indeed made an impression upon the school life. [ 162 ] Harry Gaberman Vice-President Robert Redding Secretary Hobart R.

By the installation of Alpha Omicron Chapter in Paris, France, in November, 1927, Kappa Beta Pi became the first fraternal organ- ization, general or professional, to install a chapter on the European continent. To- day, there are 49 student chapters in rec- ognized law schools in the United States, Canada, France and England, and eight alumni chapters, and members of Kappa Beta Pi are to be found in England, Ger- many, China, South Africa, Brazil, and the Argentine Republic. Omicron Chapter, chartered May 3, 1921, with a membership of four, at a time when women were striving for recog- nition in National University, today has a membership of approximately 100 and is the largest student chapter in the sorority.

Its purpose is to promote the high- est 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 attainment, law students at the University of Southern Cali- fornia at Los Angeles, the Phi Delta Delta Legal Sorority, Alpha Chapter, was incor- porated under the laws of California on No- vember 11, 1 91 1. Chapters have since been installed in nearly all the leading coeduca- tional law schools in the United States and Canada, with foreign associates in India, Egypt, Denmark, Austria, Portugal, the Neth- erlands, and Mexico. 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. At National University an award is presented each year to the freshman woman student attaining the highest scholastic average. Phi Delta Delta was a charter member and active organizer of the Women’s Professional Pan-Hellenic Association, and Mrs. Vashti Burr Whittington, former deputy attorney general of Pennsylva nia and national pres- ident of Phi Delta Delta, was first president of the association. Dr. Jean Stephenson, a member of Alpha Lambda Chapter, was pro- fessor of Parliamentary Law at National Uni- versity and was the first woman member of the University faculty.

It will enable us to reckon our gains and losses, strike a balance, and start afresh. This is an important, an almost inestimably important service. But here- after, as before, the changing combination of events will bear upon the walls of ancient cate- gories. ' Life has relations not capable of division into inflexible compartments. The moulds expand and shrink.’ Existing rules and principles can give us our present location, our bearings, our latitude and longitude. The inn that shelters for the night is not the journey’s end. The law, like the trav- eller, must be ready for the morrow. It must have a principle of growth.” [ 175 ] ★ ★ ★ EVERETT P. MILLER Chancellor SIGMA DELTA KAPPA [ 176 ] SIGMA DELTA KAPPA MU CHAPTER Character and Scholarship The Sigma Delta Kappa Fraternity was founded in 1914, at the University of Mich- igan with a charter membership of six. There are now twenty-eight active and ten alumni chapters throughout the United States. 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 in- stilled with the Law and the ideals for which our Fraternity stands. Thus it will be in future years — a link to this ever-growing chain of Mu Chapter’s history. This year has been one for which its officers and mem- bers have good reason to feel justly proud. Mu Chapter was represented by Brothers Ellison D. Smith, Junior, and Everett P. Miller, at the twenty-sixth annual convention held in Louisville, Kentucky, December 29- 3 1 , 940 - Mu Chapter held its initiation ceremony, banquet and entertainment in the Hay- Adams House on March 1, 1941. At that time 19 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 mem- bers of Mu Chapter, should record on these pages, our tribute to the founders of Sigma Delta Kappa, and our pledge to maintain these ideals of Christian character and schol- arship, thereby to become more learned in the Law, and honored members of this ancient and honorable profession.

STOCKTON [ 188 ’ 9 MISS GERALDINE W. PIKUL [ 189 ] HISTORY OF THE NATIONAL UNIVERSITY The National University in Washington was first incorporated in 1869 under the General Incorporation Law of the District of Columbia. Some time afterwards the Congress of the United States by a special act (29 Statutes at Large, 194) granted a broad charter to Arthur MacArthur, Richard H. Alvey and Charles C. Cole and their associates, thirteen in all, with full power " to grant and confer diplomas and the usual college and university degrees.” Justices MacArthur and Cole both served upon the bench of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, and Justice Alvey, at one time Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of Maryland, was the Chief Justice of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia. Among the other incorporators were Eugene Carusi, at that time Dean of the Law Faculty, Howard H. Barker, Dean of the Medical Department, and John Goode, Attorney General of Virginia and at one time Solicitor General of the United States. From the beginning of its existence the National University was looked upon by those in charge as an institution intended for real national service, and during the first part of its existence it had the honor of having as ex-officio Chancellors of the University, five of the Presidents of the United States. These were Presidents Grant, Hayes, Garfield, Arthur and Cleveland. The diplomas awarded during their terms of office bear their signatures. The other Chancellors of the University were Associate Justice Samuel F. Miller of the Supreme Court of the United States, Bishop John Fletcher Hurst, Associate Justice Arthur MacArthur, of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, Chief Justice Richard H. Alvey, of the Court of Appeals of the District of Columbia, Eugene Carusi, LL.D., Charles F. Carusi, LL.D., Hayden Johnson, LL.D., and Charles S. Hatfield, LL.D., of the United States Court of Customs and Patent Appeals. The present Chancellor is Leslie C. Garnett, LL.M. The Law School is nonsectarian, is one of the oldest in the United States, and has enjoyed an unusual standing among members of the legal profession in Washington and elsewhere on account of the thoroughly practical character of the work carried on in the school by successful practitioners at the bar and by reason of the high character of its unusually mature and ambitious student-body. There have been graduated from the Law School during the 71 years of its history approximately 7,000 students. In 1940 National University Law School was provisionally approved by the American Bar Association. This marks a new era in the history of National Uni- versity. Under the guidance of Chancellor Garnett and his assistant, Eugene Carusi, National’s history will continue in yet greater eras.

The members of the Society are proposed by the Dean and confirmed by the co-founders remaining in school. The privilege of confirmation thereafter is confined to the senior mem- bers who act as a senate. In proposing members, the Dean, the Honorable Charles Pergler, known in Eu- rope as in America for his statesmanship, idealism and scholarship, will be guided by considerations of leadership, humanism and scholarship. Law is a social science, it is a means to certain ends which society has ascertained for itself. These ends may shift. The means towards the accomplishment of these ends must be re-defined from time to time. This makes the study of law at once fascinating and interesting. The lawyer must not exploit his fellow citizens, he must aim to make his com- munity better through wise laws. He will not help to rear this structure or temple of law without realizing his great indebtedness to the Architect of the universe whose plans, by the aid of reason and study, he must always endeavor to ascertain. While law in action as well as law in books is constantly observed by the member- ship of the Jural Society, and the great legal classics of the law studied as well, the great reformers of the law are not forgotten. Neither race, class, nationality or religious preferences are considered in determin- ing the membership of the Jural Society. Laws are in vain where the soul is bar- barous.

Ferocious Bull Terrier Inquisitive Pup Custodian of the Ancient Relic . . . Official Fumigator Gentlemen of the jury, the best friend a man has in this world may turn 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 clouds 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.

FACETS OF CASE LAW The cases from which the exhaustive annotations in American Law Reports are prepared are carefully pre- sented to accurately reflect the prevailing’ principles in- volved. Even as a diamond of many facets projects the light rays that strike it, so the cases in an A.L.R. anno- tation reflect their light to the mind of an attorney pon- dering over his problem. If full reports of each case cited and discussed in A.L.R. annotations were published in a separate set, they would fill some 3600 volumes of reports. If you personally duplicated the cutting and polishing time spent on A.L.R., it would take you over one thou- sand years. The easy access to over eight hundred thousand reflections of case law in A.L.R. annotations is why attorneys refer to A.L.R. as a library in itself.
