Text from Pages 1 - 190 of the 1942 volume:

Published under the direction of Josephine R. Garrison Editor William A. King Business Manager Jjorduorb The span of our careers at National University has been historic — personally and nationally. Personal in that our comple- tion of regulated study is recorded achievement. National in that the declaration of war will significantly direct our abilities toward a common love. o Our stage is the world. Our background is Shakespearean. Our players are civilian and military with bold hearts and gold spurs. program JVct ©ne (Administration jVct ®foo cl]ool of IGafu (Act ©t]rec •cljoal of Economics and dodermneni Act ,3[ou r (Organizations (Act 3fi e JHotogradure (Act Jitx fraternities and Sororities Act Jicfrett P cMratimt 1 liis book w c dedicate to those of our class-mates who are in our country , s service. They are emulating the example set by Cincinnattus in serving now to preserve our principles of government and hy having studied Law and allied sub- jects so as to return and insure in peace-time the continuance of recognition of the rights of man. We regret that the exigencies existing did not allow an opportunity for all to he pictured. They are, nonetheless, remembered and thought of. lo all of them we say, Godspeed, we will keep faith so that you will not re- turn to find your labors to have been in vain.” Mellon O.

Seith Edward Geoffrey Milton Lunch Associate Justice Arthur MacArthur of the Supreme Court of the District of Columbia, Chancellor of National University 1891 — 1896 (8th Chancellor), and one of the original founders of the school. The Class of 1942 pays tribute to the distinguished grand- son of a former Chancellor of this University; General Douglas MacArthur. General MacArthur will receive the degree of Doctor of Laws, causa honoris, from this University at the Commencement exer- cises in June, 1942. By his brilliant military operations he is enabling America to insure the continuance of Law as the guide of our lives and the rule for our actions. 7 Tlaekay Radio 1418 NEW YORK AVE.

Chancellor of the University (Mimtcsllor’s The Docket of 1942 marks the end of an era at National University. It is the last publication of a class admitted under the more liberal rules and graduating within three years. It commemorates the culmination of those years of application and sacrifice. It will be a cherished memento of valued friendships and sweet as- sociations. I congratulate the class and express for each of vou the wish that despite the dark days of peril through which we must pass, the future may hold for you the suc- cess and happiness your heart desires.

Dean of the Law Faculty ilcau’s Message At no time in American history, perhaps never in history, generally, was the legal profession faced with heavier responsibilities than today. The war — I would call it the Peoples’ War — is one for national survival, but by the same token it is a struggle for reestablishment of law and order. This is true in the international sphere, but also means that we must constantly affirm our belief in freedom under the law in the domestic sphere. That calls for competent lawyers, but also for a breadth of vision in the application of fixed legal principles and the formation of new ones. May the Class of 1942 make its contribution felt! In this, and all other respects, I wish it a career of real service to the Nation. JENNINGS BAILEY, M.A., LL.D.

Professor of Civil Procedure Ilufrge llulifing’s Message I salute the law class of 1942 and welcome you as members of our ancient and honorable body. You enter no quiet and calm life, or life of cultured ease. Yours is a calling of unceasing labor, sublime duty and grave respon sibility. The law is a jealous mistress and exacts unlimited devotion of heart and soul. mxox (Mass |3r£gtfrmfs (illtasaijr As the curtain rings down on the class of 1942, I appreciate this opportunity afforded me to say farewell to a grand class, one that has made its mark which will be recorded in the annals of history to take its place among the many fine classes that have preceded us at National University. In saying farewell, if my wishes hold true, it will be only as a group and never individually. Space does not permit me to tell you how grateful I am, but I do want to thank you sincerely for my election as president and tell you it has been an extreme pleasure working with you throughout the year as we have battled toward our goal — graduation — , many of us against overwhelming odds, but we have won — it’s the American in us — . To those of you who have expended ceaseless efforts in class activities and in the publication of this book, I wish to dedicate this message and to the class of 1942, the best of luck in passing the bar, wherever and whenever that may be and to furthermore wish you all of the grand things in life which you so richly deserve. I would not have wanted to have been president of a better class, and class- mates , in closing, please allow me to leave this thought with you “Let us always give the world the best we have and the best will surely come back to us.” Sincerely, FLETCHER D. MITCHELL, JR. HARRY JOHN AHERN Washington, D. C. Harry grew up in the District, attended Gonzaga College, and thence to National University, with the intention of following his father’s footsteps. He received his LL.B. in March and is now serving his “Uncle” as an officer in the U. S. Naval Reserves. WILLIAM CHARLES AILLES Ironton, Ohio Bill covers the alphabet — from OHIO to FBI and expects to use his law there. Most painful memory is paying tuition. Favorite persons — the entire faculty. IDA BRIGHT ALS Louisville, Kentucky Ida mowed down her A.B. degree in the Blue Grass country at the University of Kentucky and also graduated from the Lewis Hotel Training School. She works with the U. S. Board of. Tax Appeals, and we predict that she will change that “with " to “on”. Her “res ipsa loquitur” hobby is music. Ida has, in fact and in law, admired all of our distinguished faculty. Kapoa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club MATTHEW R. AMANN Rome, New York “Matt” has a flare for figures — we mean the mathematical kind — though of course we won’t limit his tastes to just that. He is employed in the General Accounting Office as a Principal Auditor and expects to use his legal training there and anywhere else whereby it will help him; and — knowing him as we do we are sure that he will be an out- standing “figure” in his chosen profession. Phi Beta Gamma ALFRED WRAY ANDERSON Atlantic City, New Jersey Tall, blond “Andy” works for Secretary Wickard in the fiscal division of the Department of Agriculture. He used to bounce a ball on the Boardwalk at Atlantic City, and now he bounces a swell baby boy — and in his spare time “bounces” a “spare” down the bowling alley. GILBERT L. BATES Washington, D. C. “Gil” will be remembered by his associates as a thorough student of the law. With an A.B. from Yale and LL.B. from National we can expect to hear of his achievements. Does “I remit you to the library” sound familiar to you, “Gil”? Good luck and every success. Delta Theta Phi RICHARD BEDELL Alsea, Oregon Richard enjoys his work at the Veterans Administration and he expects to use his law in qualifying for a position as an adjudicator in this government department, provided he isn’t drafted first. The Army and the Marines have first hand knowledge as to Richard’s military ability, and he would be a capable adversary either on the battlefield or in a court room. He says his favorite pastime is being “re- gusted,” but we know he doesn’t mean it. ESTELLE C. BERLINER San Antonio, Texas Estelle came to National via Southeastern University and their loss was our gain. Her cheerful smile and friend- liness has made her one of our most popular Portias. She is an employee of Civil Aeronautics Administration. If the stars in Texas shine like “Chili’s” eyes we know why “Deep in the Heart of Texas” was written. May our Seno- rita rumhba right into the success she deserves! Cy Pres Club MISHEL BERNSTEIN Washington, D. C. “Buddy” zoomed from McKinley High to National and intends to keep it up in the Air Corps as soon as gradua- tion is over — and after that, back to his first love — the law. WILLIAM JAMES BLAKE Alexandria, Virginia A true native of Virginia, “Bill” is an engineer with the Virginia Public Service Company. He hopes to apply his law with this company as he does not intend to hang out a shingle. The boys of Delta Theta Phi will always re- member him as the “infernal” revenue man who stood at the door the first of each month, receipt book in hand. Our good wishes for success and h? " ' : ness go with him always. We nredict his place at the top — the same as it has been in class. Delta Theta Phi Masonic Club FURMAN G. BOGGAN Tupelo, Mississippi “Tupe” as his nickname would imply, is a native of that rarest of rare towns — Tupelo in ole Mississippi. We like him for his friendliness, his wit, and because all the Yankee winds in the world couldn’t blow away that southern drawl — or that bow tie! Judge Luhring is his favorite instructor and John Edgar Hoover his favorite boss. Consistent good taste, we say! Delta Theta Phi EDWIN L. BRIGHT Washington, D. C. “Eddie” is a man whose real worth is appreciated when you know him. A consistently hard worker, he is never too busy to lend a hand to a hard pressed brother. He has a simon pure love of the law and should go a long way in it. Sigma Nti Phi, 1st vice Chancellor IVY LEE BUCHANAN Dallas, Texas A Texan in every sense of the word, that’s Ivy Lee. After attending State College for Women and Southern Metho- dist in Texas she settled down at National. Horseback rid- ing is her hobby and Dr. Cassidy her favorite professor despite his remarks about her miscellaneous hats. She ex- perienced a great moment when she passed the Mississippi bar. Good luck, Buckey — for your private practice either in Washington or Texas. Cy Pres Club WILLIAM A. BUDROE Dayton, Ohio We, of National, will remember Bill for among many other things in general, two in particular — always being immaculately tailored and always in the front row in what Dr. Cassidy calls the $2.20 circle. Bill is with F.B.I. A distinguished law} ' er once told him that if he becomes half the lawyer his father was, he would be a whiz. We wish you all of that and then some, Bill. Delta Theta Phi Interfraternity Council JOHN BYRNE CALHOUN Mobile, Alabama Johnny’s career at National has been “three years of hard but interesting work and pleasant associations’’. By wav of unanimitv. we admire and respect Johnny too! His inspir- ation to hurdle the D. C. Bar the first time, is two-fold — one charming wife and one promising son. Dr. Cassidy’s keen intellect and fine sense of humor have been enlight- ening and pleasing to Johnny. Every success will be and should be yours! Delta Theta Phi Apex Honor Society Docket Staff t HARCOURT EDINGTON CAMPBELL Portland, Oregon This is one “front row” student who really deserves to sit there. Harcourt has been a leader in all his studies throughout our years at National University. Studious, thoughtful, and sincere, we hope to be able to follow his career, as we are sure it will be an interesting and success- ful one. Apex Honor Society Masonic Club Docket Staff THOMAS K. CAMPBELL Las Cruces, New Mexico Like all story-book westerners, Tom is an astute poker player, always looking for a “pat” hand. As a flyer, we know you will first make the pot “sweet” for the enemy. You can’t miss if you combine your poker face, your brains, and your natural talent for law. Delta Theta Phi President, Flying Club WILLIAM FRANKLIN CAMPBELL Roanoke, Virginia “Bill” comes from the heart of the Old Dominion. At present, he is with the General Accounting Office and is undecided as to his future legal career. He is especially grateful to Professor Barse, who makes the difficult subject of law so comprehensive. Bill intends to further his edu- cational advantages unless Uncle Sam ses fit to call him for service. PHILIP JAMES CARROLL Ashburnham, Massachusetts Phil believes that Judge Luhring’s great interest in his students was both impressive and inspiring and Dr. Cas- sidy’s humor and wit were his favorites. He is with the F.B.I. and government work was the reason for acquiring an LL.B. Phil has definitely come from the right direc- tion and is more than definitely headed in the right direc- tion. SARAH AGNES CHARLES San Francisco, California Mississippi State College For Women in Columbus, Mis- sissippi not only gave “Charley” a B.S. degree, but also a lovely, gracious manner. She has resided in many parts of the country, but claims Sunny California as her legal residence; however, the Bar Examiners of Mississippi were so impressed w T ith her legal knowledge, that they ad- mitted her to practice law there. She has many outside activities, which accounts for her hobby of “touring”, but for the “duration” this will be her sacrifice in the interests of victory. Cy Pres Club Kappa Beta Pi JOHN FRANKLIN CLARDY Piedmont, South Carolina Johnnie, — Oh, Johnnie! What would the Docket have done without you? His hobby is photography and ’tis well for the Docket as he is the Photographic Editor and has done a swell job! While studying law, he still finds time for membership in the Emergency First Aid Corps, Amer- ican Red Cross of Arlington County, Fire Department and Rescue Squad. He was a Sergeant in the Marines be- fore he came to National and will reenlist as soon as he gets that sheepskin! We wish him well, for he has what it takes! Associate Chief Justice, Phi Beta Gamma Docket Staff CLAYTON BRASWELL COLLINS Takoma Park, Maryland While working nights at the Housing Administration, Clayton is a most industrious advertising manager for the Docket in the day-time, being a student of the Day Di- vision. He is looking forward to passing the D. C. Bar in June, and if Uncle Sam does not find need for him, he in- tends to enter the practice of law. Good luck, Clayton! President, Senior Class (Day Division) MURRAY COMAROW Brooklyn, New York A student whose ability as a debater is well-known, we shall always remember Murray for his excellent speak- ing voice and his clear, crisp enunciation. A prize winner in Negotiable Instruments and working for the Treasury, with one foot already in the Army. We predict that this New Yorker will become an able trial lawyer, banker, soldier or businessman and that when he finishes at grad- uation, it will be only the “beginning” of a very outstand- ing career. Debate Team DICK CONNALLY Brownwood, Texas When you lift that hat — there’s Dick. Passed everything from measles in Brownwood, Texas to A(nte) B(ellum) at the University of Texas — Dallas to you. suh! — And what’s more, he’s a “gwine back to Texas” when we sign off — but coming back to D. C. “in state”. Six foot — sym- pathetic — straightforward — sincere — and when it comes to picking winners (Editor’s Note: See the “L” Department under B.A.) — you can’t predict anything “much” about four aces in one hand! Treasurer, Senior Class Docket Staff MICHAEL JOSEPH COOK Washington, D. C. It was through Orman “Buddy” Stalker, Class of 1941, who was killed at Hagerstown, Maryland on March 16, 1942, in a plane crash while instructing a student pilot, that Mike chose National for his study of the law. “Bud- dy’s” guidance will not be forgotten. Mike is another pro- duct of the District of Columbia and his present training as law clerk in a local law firm will give him the ground- work for his future ambition to practice law — after he has answered his country’s call. WILLIAM EDWARD COSSON Morristown, Tennessee Along with the Secretary of State, Bill comes from Tennessee, and he is a member of the State Bar, suh. Bill matriculated to National after having attended Carson New- man College. He admits he studied law to become a Sena- tor and his many friends at National wish him nothing but the best of luck. Jural Society, President Delta Theta Phi JOHN LATHROP COTTING Tupelo, Mississippi John has mastered the law as he has everything else he set out to do. His favorite instructor, Judge Luhring — his favorite avocation — annihilating fried chicken. One of our favorite people — best to you, John! Delta Theta Phi ELDRED WESLEY COX Washington, D. C. Eldred’s career at National is indicative of the real rea- son why the F.B.I. always gets its man. Now a finger- print expert, he is paving his way toward the role of America’s No. 1 sleuth. A brilliant student, Eldred won all scholastic honors in his junior year and may give a re- peat performance in his senior year. Best of luck. KATHARINE POINDEXTER CROWLEY New York, New York “Kay” transferred to National from the University of Baltimore. She takes her study of law seriously and though she doesn’t intend to practice she will be an asset to Uncle Sam as an Adjudicator of Claims with the Social Security Board. Her two sons are her principal interest, and she has the ability to make a home for them and still attain success in the professional world. Luck to you, Kay! THOMAS WILLIAM CURRAN New Haven, Connecticut Tom holds a commission as 2nd Lieutenant in the Air Corps Reserve. Upon his completion of law he expects to become a full-fledged G-man; that is, unless Uncle Sam needs him. We wish this gentleman and scholar success in whatever he does but not as much success as Rip Van Winkle in his chosen hobby of sleep. Delta Theta Phi ANTHONY JAMES D’AVANZO Newark, New Jersey A supervisor of statistics in the Labor Department and decided to do more about it and now he has. With his personality and charm, a law degree will only be a starter. His favorite teacher — Dr. Cassidy’s “humor”. Attended Rutgers for two years. HALFORD G. DAVIS Washington D. C. Blessed with a highly gifted mind, with an original and inventive turn, “Hal” is one of the “cream of the crop”. He brought with him from Yale Univefsitv a distinguished background upon which he has built consistently. He can’t miss — and Uncle Sam thinks so too! Sigma Nu Phi LOUISE LENORE DAVIS Washington, D. C. Louise was chosen from many to represent the Women’s Bar Association at National, and has carried the banner high. Good things come in small packages, and being an honor student has not dimmed her sense of humor. Her knack of enlightening the spirits of those she meets will be an asset toward realizing her highest ambition, which is in the field of specialized law. Louise can always be de- pended on for hard work, and is not a “joiner”, but an ac- tive worker for any good cause. That was some banquet Cy Pres had, wasn’t it, Louise? Treasurer, Cy Pres Club Kappa Beta Pi CECIL THOMAS DEES Maj o, Florida Florida National Guard 1926-7; R.O.T.C- 1927-9; Naval Reserve 1935-9. Try to give him a purely orthodox answer or a rule without reason and you’ll find the quick, tena- cious mind of C. T. ever on the alert. Analytical in his study of law, ever eager to learn and question, we predict a great future for our Classmate. He is with the Civil Service Commission and his hobbies are tennis and canoeing. C. T. has such stuff good citizens are made of. Sigma Nu Phi LESTER J. DENNING Nasonville, Rhode Island Quiet and unassuming. Lester is one who takes “the law” seriously and has won the esteem and respect of his class. One as studious as he will surely attain a high degree of succe ss and realize in full measure his ambitions. Delta Theta Phi WILLIAM J. DOWLING Ashlev, Pennsylvania Bill is an examiner for the U. S. Tariff Commission and studied law to round out his general education. Music is his hobby — but this may be stifled temporarily, as he hopes for a Commission in the Naval Reserve. With his LL.B. behind him, he should make a success in anything which he tackles. NETTIE MARIE DULBERGER Washington, D. C. In the daytime, Xettie toils in the legal division of the Office of Price Administration. Her ability is well re- corded, as she won a scholarship to Butler University in Indianapolis, Indiana, and also attended Indiana Univer- sity and Indiana Law School prior to entering National. Her biography is as interesting as one of Judge Luhring’s lectures! LILLIAN INGRAM DUNHAM Akelev, Minnesota Lillian is helping the war effort by appointing Warrant Officers in the Xavy. Those of us who have watched her in action during XIoot Court, predict she’ll be an outstand- ing Portia! She married Lawyer Dunham, a 1940 Na- tional University graduate, and says that although he in- duced her to study law, he rues the day. as she now knows her legal rights! Recording Registrar, Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Docket Staff ROBERT THOMAS EAGAN New Philadelphia, Ohio ••Bob " is an analyst with the War Production Board and when it comes to an anah ' sis of some legal problem tossed out b3 ' one of our professors. Bob reallv proves his abilitv He intends to practice either in D. C. or Ohio and, well— knowing him as we do, we won’t be surprised at fmdino- this classmate of ours with law offices in both jurisdictions 5 Luck to 3-ou, Bob. Phi Beta Gamma DOROTHY BURNAP ECCLESTON Emporia, Kansas Like a valve in head type motor, this smooth moving quiet little lady is always there with the power in a pinch. Unassuming, cheerful, helpful, studious and efficient, Dot stands high on our list of charming and useful people. She expects to earn her living via the law and will be a credit wherever she serves. At present a Secretary on the “Hill”, we know she is just starting to climb for the cloud region in her profession. Cy Pres Club JOHN POOL ELLIOTT Richmond, Virginia I-A and proud of it! Why not, John? You can’t go wrong with that drawl and smile — even if 3 011 are ma rooned on a womanless island. His favorite pastime — a Professor Barse lecture — good sense we say! Delta Theta Phi Docket Staff RUSSELL VANCE ENTLER Keyser, West Virginia “Shrimp” is a real seaman, first-class, and when we say “first-class” we do mean just that — he was assigned to the Presidential Yacht, U.S.S. Pctomac, in the Navy Yard, Washington, D. C. His first day in class will always be remembered, when Professor Munter queried :i “Sailor, where is your domicile?” His land-lubber hobby is his car — which time will stifle, if the O.C.D. doesn’t! His last- ing impression of National is his association with his fra- ternity, and we know his brothers feel likewise toward him. Delta Theta Phi MABLE MARIE FARMER Frankfort, Kentucky When the roll is called, Mable, we are sure your name will be close to “Abou Ben Adams” — our hats are on to you for being a cooperative classmate, an excellent student, and a grand person. We predict that no pinnacle will be too high for your attainment. As proof of her ca- pacity for discernment, Mable says her favorite subject is Constitutional Law and she likes it so well, she is going to take it again for mental exercise! Her rich humor found expression in black and white caricatures which appeared in our various and sundry periodicals. President, Cy Pres Club Kappa Beta Pi Secretary, Apex Honor Society Art Editor, Docket Staff ... Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. EDISON ALLEN FARQUHAR Connellsville, Pennsylvania Ed is our idea of perpetual motion — school, Chevy Chase, work, Connellsville, Pennsylvania. He says he only does fingerprints for F.B.I., but we suspicion he is tracking down bigger game. Finishing law at 20 is no sinecure alone, but Ed took it in stride with everything else. If he doesn’t land at the top, something is wrong up there, but we’ll bet on him across the board whatever he chooses to do. Sigma Delta Kappa Sergeant-at-Arms — Senior Class MARY ALICE FARQUHAR Connellsville, Pennsylvania Petite, blond Alice is one of the most popular misses at National University and the reason is not hard to see, as she is always willing to help others and do her bit. Her favorite pastime is portrait painting and her brother Edi- son, and being an efficient Secretary — so good, in fact, she has been Secretary of her class in both Junior ancl Senior years. It is said that those surrounded by beauty are inspired to greater heights, therefore, we know our Alice will reach the stars. Secretary — Senior Class Cy Pres Club GEORGE H. FELA Wilkes-Barre, Pennsjdvania In his quiet and genial way, George has absorbed much law at National and will apply it with his accounting knowledge in business back home. If the opportunity presents itself, he hopes to practice and we predict that he will be found a leader in everything around Wilkes-Barre. His hobby is music, and if you haven’t heard George do the Beer Barrel Polka on the “go-from-you-come-to-you” box, you “hain’t heard nuthin’ yet”. His favorite instruc- tor, Professor Munter. REGINALD EDWARD FENNELL Chevy Chase, Maryland “Reg” earned his A.B. at George Washington Univer- sity before coming to National. He has studied the law with the intention of some day hanging out his shingle. Hereby National produces a real asset for any bar. Phi Beta Gamma CLARENCE WILBUR FISK Kensington, Maryland Speaking of veterans — here’s one — and World War No. 2 is only an encore. He went thru No. 1, has an A.B. from George Washington, is an ace student and a lover of crim- inal law — helpful and kindly — What material for a Judge! DAVID PATRICK FITZGIBBONS Oswego, New York We will give you “Fitz” as an unusual combination of student, friend, and the rarest of wits. He was the chief pillar and support of justice Bailey’s class on Conflict of Laws. We first knew him as an excellent student and later discovered him to be the possessor of a fine sens? of humor and an ability to make and keep many staunch friends. HOWELL W. FOWLER Arlington, Virginia W ell known and well liked by his associates. Studious and capable, we know Howell will br ing glory to our alma mammy. WILLIAM ALEXANDER FOX Roanoke, Virginia Bill is a family man, whose hobby is gardening. Biggest thrill he recalls was getting 100% in Suret 3 ship. He hopes to practice in Virginia, and we bet he will be in the front rank of the Bar. His favorite study is the Constitution favorite professors Dean Pergler and Professor Walker- discriminating taste, Rather! Master of the Rolls— Sigma Nu Phi IRVING FRANK Brooklyn, New York Irving is that studious lad that hails from Brooklyn. He received his pre-legal training at Brooklyn College and ex- pects to use his legal training in connection with his work as an Adjustment Clerk with the Social Security Board. He is a member of the Debating squad of National and won a copy of Corpus Juris Secundum for the highest mark in his course in Contracts. His quiet likable personality will carry him over the rough spots. BERTA FRIEDMAN Buffalo, New York Berta is the quiet dark-eyed lass that sits in the front row and always knows the answers — beauty and brains — and as proof, she is carrying away with her from National University the Eugene Carusi Gold Medal; the University Class Ring from Alpha Lambda Chapter of Phi Delta Del- ta Sorority and the Corpus Juris Secundum for the highest grade in Equity. What further can be said? We wish you all the luck, Berta! Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges. Cy Pres Club LEON WARREN GARBER New York, New York Leon has always displayed a keen interest in class affairs by inquiring “Just what’s going to happen next?” He toils in the daytime with the United States Coast Guard and studies law at night to help him up that proverbial “ladder”. His favorite teacher was Professor Baldinger. We are sure that success will be his in all future endeavors. Alpha Beta Phi JOSEPHINE RUTH GARRISON Lawrence, Massachusetts Intelligent and attractive, behind those sparkling blue eves will be found an agile, retentive mind, proving that brains and beauty do mix. Jo has both — and a lot more. On the side, she helps gather Uncle Sam’s taxes in Internal Revenue, flies an airplane, hits the nineties in her exams, encourages the rest of us and helps everyone, everywhere, every way, every time — you can’t miss Jo — a grand person to call our friend. Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Flying Club Docket, Editor Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges SAMUEL GILLMAN Washington, D. C. “Lanky” attended Wilson Teachers College, but soon decided that arguing his way through life was much easier than teaching school. His contention is that graduation in June will be the most outstanding event in his life, and affirms that when Uncle Sam is through with him, he will settle down to the practice of law here in Washington and his classmates wish him every success! JAMES D. C. GOULDIN Bethesda, Maryland When the tower of Babel was “a” building, Jim’s an- cestors got into an argument — who wouldn’t — and he’s been at it ever since! He’s the kind of a guy who takes either side and later it makes you mad because you were “sap” enough to take the other. Bethesda claims him, but we’d like to look in the book again in 1955 and find him there, and we bet we would still say “Sock me again — I can still hear him”! Jim, you’re a natural! Delta Theta Phi RAYMOND MARTIN GRALTON Alexandria, Virginia Ray has really won the hearts of the students — correc- tion!! hearts and stomachs. We will always remember his classic doughnuts on the last class night of each se- mester — no wonder we all passed, aided and abetted by Gralton’s doughnuts. Generous, studious and industrious, Ray has the whole class betting on his brilliant future. Sigma Nu Phi Vice President — ‘Senior Class INEZ MARIE GRIER Macon, Georgia Inez is with the Veterans Administration and is taking law for the purpose of advancement in government serv- ice. National University examination weeks have been her nemesis — Judge Wheatley her favorite instructor. Her sac- rifice for the “duration” will be her hobby of motoring! Cy Pres Club CYRUS GUNSBERG New York, New York “When you can keep your head when those around you are losing theirs” — then you may be placed in the same category with Cy. Amid worried expressions, groans, and gloom at exam time, Cy’s cheery face and confident manner stand out as a rainbow in a sky of dark clouds. We won- der if he obtained the “cheer” formula from City College, New York? His hobby is “hunting” — intricate legal prob- lems! Historian, Alpha Beta Phi RALPH DONALD HAGERMAN Rochester, New York Ralph is also a former student of the School of Eco- nomics and Government, but with his analytical mind, he passed right on through to the Law School. He sits quiet- ly in class absorbing all lectures and when the roll is called for scholastic averages, you can rest assured that Ralph’s name will be among the top few. He is an ardent and in- telligent student of the law and a sincere friend. With such a background, his success in Government service is assured! EDWARD C. HALL Hattiesburg, Mississippi The South has sent us some fine boys and we have found Ed to be in the top rank. He has shown a keen interest in law and will probabE be before the Supreme Court some- day and not “via the Atlantic Seaboard!” WARREN G. HARDING Washington, D. C. Another budding genius from the Nation’s Capitol. War- ren is loath to leave National, as he was a former student of the School of Economics and Government and matricu- lated into Law School in 1939. If you aspire to the heights of your illustrious namesake the House on Pennsylvania Avenue will be the end of the road for you! Sigma Nu Phi LILLIAN S. HARPER Marquette, Michigan Lilian possesses the quality of accomplishing her aims. One of our most industrious students of the law and one of our midst most likely to succeed. BYRON J. HARRILL Arlington, Virginia Byron finished school in March and being such a pleasant fellow-student we have missed his presence. Law was the most important thing for Byron and because of that his achievement of that ultimate goal is — well — res ipsa lo- quitur. DOLPH HAYS Little Rock, Arkansas Dolph transferred from George Washington University to National. He is now a law clerk with a Title Company, but his ambition is to enter private practice. With his abil- ity to meet people and argue a case in the best Ozark style, we know he will be a success — but only after the Big Uncle is through using him to “argue”!! Good luck — always! EWART ATKINS HESTER Alissoula Montana Ewart was presented with a B.S. degree from George- town University School of Foreign Service and he has rounded out his education through the study of law. He has Dr. Cassidy earmarked as his favorite teacher at N.U. Ewart remembers World War I, having seen active serv- ice in the 1st Machine Gun Battalion, 6th Regiment, of the U. S. Marines. His classmates join together in wishing him a bright career. LOUIS S. HILLMAN Fall River, Massachusetts The old Fall River Line — and did Lou learn it? Never missed a trick since Paul Revere lost his saddle. At pres- ent is an " Interior” decorator for Mr. Ickes, but with his sheepskin on his shoulder will soon be on his way. Co- operation and loyalty such as you’ve given us, will take you far in anything you set out for Lou — bon voyage! Alpha Beta Phi Inter-Fraternity Council, President ARTHUR HINTZE West Pittston, Pennsylvania Honesty is a rarity. Art s ys his most lasting impres- sion for life will be Dean Pergler’s examination in Consti- tutional law! Hobby — pulling at a G string — on a violin and we testify that he can! F.B.I. has him doing the " imprint” act, but with law in his satchel — look out! t ROBERT PAUL HONSAKER Uniontown, Pennsylvania “Bob” is the guinea pig of our laboratory. He has more ideas than Kresge has notions, but withal an administrative perspective and analytical surveillance that enables him to quickly appraise the results and willingness to “swap horses” in the middle of any stream. His favorite memory — Dr. Husserl lecturing by flashlight during a D.C. black- out. We shall miss you, Bob! Sigma Nu Phi ROBERT V. HUGHES Cincinnati, Ohio Hughes is affectionately known as Texas, even though he comes from the near eastern state of Ohio. Because of his grand sense of humor and quick wit, he has borne the brunt of many a joking remark by the professors. Despite his happy-go-lucky attitude, his remarkable dissertations on law and quick analysis indicate that his choice of the legal profession was the correct one. RICHARD D. HUPMAN Washington, D. C. Dick takes a realistic approach to the study of law. Plis object is to make it win him his “bre ad and butter” and with his legal research background at the Library of Congress, he should realize his object. His favorite hobby is listening to horse ‘‘tales” but he’s adjusting his hearing to the backfire of a “jeep” for the duration. EDMUND CARL JANN Washington, D. C. We have discovered gold in this classmate. A.B. from Kollegium St. Fidelis, Stans, Switzerland; and served in the Swiss Army. Emploved as Librarian by the Law Li- brary of Congress in the research department in Foreign Law. ELLSWORTH MARTIN JENNISON Norwich, Connecticut Ell hails from Yanke 1 New England. During the day he searches patents and trademarks for a livelihood, but at his leisure he searches for stamps and coins for his personal collection. So do we, but we never even raise a car check or a green trading stamp. His interest in law is ingrained and he intends to continue it — even if it becomes only an adjunct to a well-rounded education. WILBUR P. KANE Altoona, Pennsylvania Do not confuse Wilbur with “Citizen Kane” even though he will no doubt achieve a modicum of such success. He has a flair for getting along with everyone which accounts for his many friends among the Class of ’42. AARON KAPLAN Washington, D. C. “Kap’’ the quiet unassuming chap who has so ably served as Assistant Librarian of the Law School, is a native Washingtonian. He intends to use his legal training in the Veteran’s Administration where he is now employed as Accountant. He will have no difficulty in attaining what- ever goal he sets for himself, because he has the stead- fastness of purpose and the determination to ‘keep on keep- ing on’. Marshall, Alpha Beta Phi GEORGE FRANCIS KASSLER, JR. New York, New York Born among the fighting Sixty-Ninth in li’l ok New York and still fighting his way thru the red tape of the Veterans Administration, George has what it takes to fight his way into anything he wants. And his law won’t hurt him — in fact, he had to fight for that too — Good luck, George, we’ll be looking for you in somebody’s “corner” soon when the bell rings. JOHN PATRICK KELLY Watersmeet, Michigan Jack’s favorites of Common Law Pleading and Federal Rules of Civil Procedure and Dr. Cassidy, are sure-fire steps to a successful practice, to say nothing of that Ph.B. from Marquette University. A wolverine who honors the State and Michigan grows great lawyers. (Judge Cooley sat on that bench). Visiting the Mellon Art Gallery is his favorite hobby-lobby, wherein he finds there are many words in pictures. He is not only the teachers’ pet. but also our pet and pride. j ORIAN R. KENNEDY Panhandle, West Virginia West Virginia is a State and a man of war on the high seas. " Ken” came from the State and did two " hitches’ for Uncle Sam before he decided on National for law and F. B. I. for experience. Meantime, he developd two swell hobbies — a fine wife and a Junior " finger print”. He’ll make it — and how! WILLIAM A. KING Arlington, Virginia He is a native of the Bucke3 T e State, having received his pre-law and part of his legal training from Ohio University and Ohio State Law School. Bill is a Prince of a Fellow and " KING” is no misnomer. He is one of those excep- tional persons who can do a dozen different jobs equally well and still keep smiling. He is the Student Librarian of the Law School and has endeared himself to all who have contacted him. He intends to practice law in the District and we hope he will attain the success he so richly de- serves. Delta Theta Phi Business Manager — Docket Staff ANDREW F. KRISTOVICH Wilmington, California " Kris” earns his tuition at the General Accounting Of- fice. but spends many long hours over some legal tome. At the drop of a hat he will recite harrowing tales and deeds of valor concerning the Yugoslavs’ fight for freedom. -Ml of us wish “Kris”, " God Speed”. PHILIP JOHN LaMACCHIA New York, New York Phil is the silent type. “Little said and much done’ ' would be his motto. He attended our School of Economics and Government and is now a supervisor in the Depart- ment of Justice. His vibrant voice in response to class queries makes us feel we shall be privileged to hear it in Congressional Halls some day, or crowded courtrooms. JOHN FRANCIS LEAHY Boston, Massachusetts Jack admits he likes to argue and taking law was fol- lowing a natural inclination which gives him an opportuni- ty to give vent to his ability as a trial lawyer. He will protect the “home front” after graduation bv joining the Massachusetts National Guard. He is a believer that good old- fashioned work can be as much a hobby as any type of play. Vice-President, Day Division THEODORE LeBLANC Los Angeles, California A Californian whose personality is well-known. “Ted” has served his country in the Coast Guard Service for twenty-three years, and is about to add to his officer’s wardrobe, the cap and gown of the graduate lawyer. In the sudden rush of war, in the excitement of the draft, we very often forget those who have served our country well for many years. We salute you, as a guardian of our shores and as a fellow graduate! Chief Justice, Phi Beta Gamma JANIE GAMMON LEE Chicago, Illinois Janie is a Portia that can handle a home and a profes- sion with success. Though she doesn’t intend to practice she feels law has broadened her interest in people and the world and will benefit her in many respects. Janie enjoyed Constitutional Law most but she’s been an excellent stu- dent of all subjects. Cy Pres Club MAJOR WILL H. LEE Gage, Oklahoma Our Major in the U. S. Marine Corps is “Pop” to us. He is, has been and expects to be in the service. A colonel of a student and a prince of a gentleman he is one of our best assurances of future victories. We salute you, Pop, and may you enjoy the results of your true and honest efforts. BERTHA AGNES LEWIS Trenton, New Jersey The Selective Service has found Bert A-l as a secretary. And for her selection (psst! !— private) it’s a tall Texan what wears big hats. Kappa Beta Pi selected our gracious Bert for their scholarship student. She may utilize the law for the interests of the Government but there’s a tempting offer from a Texas firm. The odds aren’t even. Apex Honor Societv Kappa Beta Pi Cy Pres Club Docket Staff JOHN C. MANNING Amesbury, Massachusetts Jack is a hard worker and a real student. He has served as a class officer in the day school. He is with F.B.I. and we believe he is to be an agent. Jack has the knack and whatever he sets out to do is as good as “did”. VINCENZA MARSEGLIA Providence, Rhode Island Just why a musician would join a crowd of “gang busters” has always had us down. But not only does Vee hit the high C’s in law but confesses that she likes the lec- tures of at least two faculty members. This is heresay! Vee, we thank you. Your artistry has smoothed many a weary path and the compliment of the First Lady at the Cy Pres Banquet was more than deserved. We wish you the best — you’ve earned it! C} ' Pres Club TEMPA MARSHALL Tuls a, Oklahoma “Bamby” has led an active life, majored in physical edu- cation at George Washington University, and is a member of the Red Cross Motor Corps. Her favorite pastimes are swimming, dancing, and her husband — Bernie Altman, a prominent National graduate. Secretary, Flying Club JOSEPH L. MARTINEZ Albuquerque, New Mexico Joe obtained his B.A. degree from the University of New Mexico. He decided that the Nation’s Capitol was the place for him and — presto here he is. He decided to at- tend a few morning classes at National in order to relate to the night students the ease of life which his day class- mates had shown him. As Assistant Sergeant at Arms of the U. S. Senate, he is now obtaining experience in “law enforcement.” We predict Joe will find the way easy to success. Delta Theta Phi VIRGIL MASSEY Provo, Utah Yerg is an instructor of Chemistry at the Army Medical College, having received his A.B. degree at Edmar Univer- sity’. He is affiliated with the B.P.O.E. — the grandest peo- ple on earth. His teaching and learning will be used to the detriment of all those opposing our American way of life. LESLEY BERTRAM MAYER Alexandria, Virginia The great dissenter in voice and principle. However, his persistence and ability to question professors can only be matched by his record of honorable service in World War I. Never rattled and always aggressive, we know Mayer will go “over the top” again wherever the going is the toughest, just as his son is doing now in World War II M. PROSSER MAYNARD Alexandria, Virginia Jack says his young s on is his hobby, and we have an idea that his young son has a hobby too, and that’s his Dad. Jack is an excellent scholar, but this is only the foundation for a man who is possessed of not only dogged determination to succeed, but the intelligence, personality, and zeal to accomplish his purpose. We are sure he will succeed. Apex Honor Society Sigma Nu Phi President, Masonic Club CLEMENT THEODORE MAYO Denison, Texas Hard working, friendly, and ever willing to assist a class- mate in solving a fine point of law, Mayo spends many hours in the library extracting legal gems. As a reporter at Interstate Commerce, he knows the dividends thorough- ness pays. We know he will follow thru to success in whatever he does. STANLEY HYMAN MENDELSOHN Cleveland, Ohio Danny came to Washington to do a little sleuthing in the Fingerprint Section of the Federal Bureau of Investi- gation. He expects to utilize his knowledge of law in fur- thering himself in this work. The two subjects of Consti- tutional Law and Domestic Relations held his closest at- tention, especially when taught by Professors Pergler and Tobriner. If Danny does as well in the outside world as he has in school, we will be hearing more about this clever classmate of ours. JULIAN MICHAELSON Washington, D. C. Mike got his corporation law groundwork with the Stock Exchange Board before he went to the Veterans Administration where he is now employed and where he someday intends to use his legal training. He expects to start helping win this war right away and as it is no “mil- itary secret” the way he can handle boats we expect him to be saying “Anchors Away”. Your classmates join in say- ing “Smooth Sailing, Mike”. Alpha Beta Phi “J” HARRY MILES, JR. Indianapolis, Indiana Harry — the “Navy Torpedo Expert” as nicknamed by his professors — set the class on fire when he shot forth in class with his recitations. His uniform inspired the boys and confused the girls and though he entered National in his senior year, his friends are numerous. With Harry representing the Navy, America’s future is insured. CARLTON J. MILLER Three Rivers, Michigan For sheer adventure, Carlton left the lakes and woods of Michigan for the Nation’s Capital, where he soon became a credit authorizes a law student, and auditor for General Accounting Office, a proud father, and last, but hardly least, a full-fledged lawyer, who expects to use it all the way! Phi Beta Gamma HARLEY S. MILLER Hamilton, Ohio Harley has his eye on a well-defined goal. Knowing him as we do, we predict that he will reach that goal, for to know Harley is to be aware of his conscientiousness, his steadfastness and his grim determination to succeed. But we are not trying to portray him as too grim, for he is also lots of fun, possessing a rare sense of humor and a personality that spreads good cheer. Whatever you do, our best wishes are with you always! Masonic Club JOSEPH ANTHONY MILLER Lowell, Massachusetts Joe’s mother taught him right from wrong, National taught him the legal methods to protect those rights, and as a result Joe decided the Courts Martial Division in the Army was ideal to see and gain the practice and the principles. He would be a lawyer but if the country calls he will answer. Reading and Dr. Cassidy are his favorites. A credit to New England and a credit to National. Sigma Delta Kappa MATTHEW MILLER Omaha, Nebraska Matt intended to use his law in the Department of Jus- tice, but now expects to be in the Navy. If Latin maxims and legal phrases will win the War, the Navy can move for a directed verdict. Photography is his hobby, and we expect developed proof of victory! Marshall, Phi Beta Gamma FLETCHER D. MITCHELL, JR. Emporia, Virginia Born with a gift of leadership and a sense of humor to jump the difficult hurdles, Fletcher well deserves his nick- name of “Pres.”. As proof of his ability, he has taken the hardest “cases” — the Seniors — and welded them into one cause of action and seen them thru as President of the Class. Fletch always comes up smiling, and it is our opinion he will be on the winning side all the way. If we get in trouble, we’re going to have him as attorney for the defense; and win, lose or draw “Pres.” — here’s best of luck to you! President, Senior Class President, Apex Honor Society Who’s Who Among Students in American Universities and Colleges Master of the Ritual, Delta Theta Phi Vice-President, Jural Society Docket Staff WALTER CLIVE MORELAND Washington, D. C. Walter took law after attending Wilson Teachers Col- lege. He has spent summers at Fort Monroe and his hob- by is guns. Add them together and we have a potential medal winner. Those professors who gave out some good hard law without “flights of fancy” were his favorites. We expect to hear of your valor, Walter, be it legal or military. Sigma Delta Kappa HAMILTON HONG-KWON MOY Washington, D. C. Hamilton has what it takes to get places, and we know he isn’t even started. Business man, philatelist, student, connoisseur of good taste and why not — he springs from the Orient and a civilization from which the heroes of China today are a mere replica of the entire history of the Empire. West and East do meet, Hamilton, and e’ll be seein’ you soon in uniform for Uncle Sam. In anything you choose — you won’t fail! Apex Honor Society WILLIAM F. McALEER Washington, D. C. “Bill” says he’s 200% eligible for military service. We vote him at least 199% eligible for anything he tries to do. He is one of the most popular of our classmates, and his “pep” and personality make him stand out as a favorite person on our list of eligibles. He is a D. C. native and now attached to the District Court for the District of Columbia. He likes his work so well that as an avocation he has acted as monitor for the class for the past three years. Chancellor, Sigma Nu Phi KENNETH D. McLEAN Sault Sai .t Marie, Michigan Mac is the recipient of a B.C.S. Degree from Benjamin Franklin University and he intends to consolidate his knowledge of law and accounting and put it to use for him in some administrative branch of the government. He is already well on the way toward his goal, being employed in the Office of the Secretary, Navy Department. He is an admirer of Professor Barse arid enjoys his lectures. We have no doubt but that his legal future will be very suc- cessful. Sigma Nu Phi GEORGE MAYHUGH McLEAREN Arlington, Virginia “Mac” crosses the Potomac twice daily while coming to and from his Virginia home, but nevertheless, he is one of those rarities — a real native of the District of Columbia. He is a bloodhound in the library, a very thorough student in all subjects, and above all, a family man. We predict he will be a success in whatever he attempts! FINLAY MacLENNAN Caspar, Wyoming His hobbies of hunting and fishing serve him in the General Land Office where he is employed and may further serve him in the Armed Forces. Scotty s favorite subject was Constitutional Law and he liked Prof. Walker because both the subject and the professor were good. MATTHEW J. McMAHON New York, New York Matthew attended St. John’s College and St. John’s Law School at Brooklyn, New York before coming to National. His purpose in studying law is to use it as a background for a business career. His hobbies are public speaking and the Brooklyn Ball Club. His love for stimulating discus- sions will carry him far in any endeavor he chooses to follow. Debate Club DOROTHY M. NICHOLSON Chevy Chase, Maryland Dottie finished Holton Arms “Magna Cum Laude” and has maintained a high scholastic standing throughout law school. All her brilliance has not gone to brain however, for it shines in her wit, her voice, her aeronautical ability to " fly high”, her popularity; and it now glitters on her third finger, left hand. Dottie has been both ornamental and useful in the lives of her fellow students and her hap- piness and success is the wish of all. There will be great mourning at the bar when you put out to sea — (Matri- mony). Phi Delta Delta, Cv Pres Club MATTHEW JOSEPH O’BRIEN Boston, Massachusetts Mat is possessed with the Yankee dry humor and straightforwardness which has won for him the admiration of all. We congratulate you on your G-man appointment and feel sure J. Edgar selected a gentleman perfect to help him guard our country. Our best wishes follow you, Mat, wherever you go. Delta Theta Phi PAUL A. O’BRYAN Philadelphia, Pa. The luck of the Irish go wi’ ve, Paul, and all our best wishes go too! We admire your lofty principles and for that reason, you are known by us as an outstanding busi- ness man, an excellent student, and a sincere friend. You will long be remembered by not only your fraternity brothers, but the many oth er classmates who have come to know you during our years at National University. Dean, Delta Theta Phi HARRY J. OCKERSHAUSEN Washington, D. C. It is rare that we try to write a biography of a person about whom there is so much to say that we hardly know where to begin. Outstanding student, accomplished musi- cian, soon a soldier, and finest of friends, Harry is the sub- ject for much more lengthy history. But, we will merely add to the above “good luck, always, you deserve to suc- ceed and we know that you will.” Apex Honor Society Tribune, Delta Theta Phi Docket Staff ALICE VINCENT O’NEAL Milton, Wisconsin Alice expects to use her law for the protection of hei business rights. She divides her time between the duties of a housewife and studying law. She collects anti(|ues. Dr. Baldinger is her favorite instructor and appropriately for times to come — taxation is her favorite subject. Cy Pres Club WILLIAM T. PACE, JR. Detroit, Michigan Bill never gives up without a good fight as he proved in his moot court case. Dr. Cassidy’s vocabulary was a con- tinuous source of amazement to him. Bill’s good dis- position has won him a host of friends during the three years of law school and they all join in wishing him the best the legal profession offers, (without or with Bill Mar- tin’s briefs.) Sigma Delta Kappa HERBERT MAYFIELD PALMER Oklahoma City, Oklahoma Herb picked up a B.S. degree at Central State College and was awarded an American Legion Scholarship at Okla- homa City University. He has the notable ambition to be- come a Congressman and with his winning personality, his excellent scholastic record and gainful experience with the Reconstruction Finance Corporation, we predict a unanimous vote back home to seat him in the United States Congress. HENRY GRAVES PONS Washington, D. C. Henry is a Travel Clerk for the Office of Emergency Management. He volunteered his services to the Navy and if the pending appointment does not materialize he will practice actively. Horseback riding is his hobby which will prove more than useful when the four-wheelers be- come scarce. Delta Theta Phi ELIZABETH R. PRENTISS Washington, D. C. This studious girl came into our midst very quietly and became a fellow-student before we were aware of it. Long hours of work and study have not daunted Elizabeth so we feel assured of her success. Cy Pres Club IRA FRANKLIN REESE Ballinger, Texas Jerry has retained the friendliness and interest in other people that are earmarks of the “Longhorn”. Dependable and steadfast he is sure to succeed and is certain to make and keep friends wherever he goes. He was elected class historian for three successive years, the last by proclama- tion. Pie spent eight years in the U. S. Navy and is proudly going back. Books, aviation, Profs. Cassidy and Munter — favorites. Flying Club, Vice-President Masonic Club, Vice-President Delta Theta Phi Debate Club Class Historian HAROLD WILMER REID, JR. Alexandria, Virginia Harold expects to be inducted to the Army in June, 1942. He took the law with the intention of becomin rr an F.B.l. agent. Our tall, distinguished gentleman favors the subject of criminal law and the faculty member who understands his students — Dr. Cassidy. Good luck, Harold. Sigma Delta Kappa ELEANOR M. RICHARDS Ligonier, Pennsylvania Eleanor has made our three years at National more than pleasant. Her liking for International Law and her present vocation the State Department will probably lead her into the diplomatic corps. Biking is Eleanor’s trouble blower-away. Her argument in Moot Court left a lasting impression on her and left her classmates assured of a suc- cessful practitioner. Mrs. Roosevelt at the Cy Pres ban- quet proved the outstanding event on Eleanor’s school calendar. Cy Pres Club Docket Staff RAY WILLARD ROARK Danville, Virginia Ray came to us with a bachelor of Commercial Science degree from Southeastern University. With a bachelor of law tacked on in June, Ray will be a-ready and a-waiting for more ladders to climb. His registration in the first draft makes him subject to call. He thinks Dr. Cassidy a very learned and enlightened professor and the students very friendly. We think you’re alright, Ray. Sigma Delta Kappa ANTHONY W. ROLL Forestville, Alary land Tony tells us that Real Property and Prof. Barse are his favorites; but his fraternity brothers imply there is a third — blondes. Outstanding and dear to Tony are the friend- ships made during school years. Handsome Tony is draft- able but expects to practice later. Sigma Delta Kappa DANIEL A. RONDINARO Norwood, New Jersey “Alarshal” attended the School of Economics and Gov- ernment. He is interested in learning what rules and reg- ulations govern his country and how they are established and expects to uphold and defend those laws against any force which tends to endanger or molest our democratic way of living. Those are fighting words which could easily be punctuated with his favorite pastime of amateur boxing. Expects to be inducted into service very shortly and may all our soldiers believe as you do, Daniel. Sigma Delta Kappa HARRY V. ROQUET Riverside, California Legal problems interest Harry at National; facts and figures did at Census; later just figures at G.A.O. and now more figures at the War Department. What have you figured is the next step, Harry? Having come to the Capi- tol City from Ohio via California, we expect your legal knowledge will emerge in some distant corner of the world. ELERK ROSENBLOOM Washington, D. C. Elerk is the possessor of the deepness of those proverbial “still waters ' . Quiet, attentive, scholarly, he went his way among us — and will be remembered. The best to you, ElerL and hard work and concentration does bring the best rewards. His teacher of the law and also student of the law is Prof. Bastian. ANDREW E. RUDDOCK Homer City, Pennsylvania Reticent Andy has proved he is able to conquer. At Blackburn College, Carlinville. Illinois he received an as- sociate degree in Artj and Sciences. At National he was awarded the Eugene Carusi Medal for the highest scho- lastic average in the freshman class, and the National Law Book Company award for the best examination in Equity Jurisprudence Cases. His law degree has been a lifetime ambition. Although Andy has no definite plans we see clearly very definite success. MARGARETE MARY RYAN Omaha, Nebraska Our first appreciation of a real “corn husker” came after meeting “Putz” from Omaha. She comes from the wide open spaces where men are men and women are glad of it and can out — think, talk, sing, play, cook, swim, dance and stud} ' — any eight people we know. As a side line she runs the library at Civil Aeronautics and directs about twenty neophyte lawyers into the proper paths to find “the law of the case’ . Outspoken, frank, smart, happy and super-intelligent, we predict high places for Margarete in the law, in Government or politics — for which we hear she has a yen! We wish you the best always— chef in the kitchen, an artist in the drawing room, student in the class room, a worker everywhere — and a lady always. Cy Pres Club Kappa Beta Pi THOMAS SANTA MARIA Barrington, Rhode Island Thomas served in the Army for 4 years with the U. S. Marine Corps and left as a Sergeant. He also added wings when he received his pilot’s license last fall. He admits that law fascinates him and hopes to be able to practice someday. Prof. Patterson and Real Property were his favorites even though Thomas was always put under cross- examination during that class. His opponent in Moot Court dared to quote a dissenting opinion for authority and the dissenting expression of the judge left a lasting impression. Thomas has the makings of a winner in all bouts. Sigma Delta Kanoa ALESIO SAVIOLA Buffalo, New York A1 joined forces with J. Edgar Hoover in order that good should always triumph over evil. He is a fingerprint classi- fier and attended National University, Day School, in order to become a special agent with F.B.I. — and we feel sure he will make it too! CATHERINE A. SCALLY Wauwatosa, Wisconsin This dark-haired lassie hasn’t been with us long, but in the short time we have known her, she has gone over in a big way. A little mite in size, she has tall ambitions. She is at present with the Social Security Board. She thinks Professor Cassidy is “tops” — second only to the Dells of Wisconsin. Good taste, we say! lota Tau Tau Cy Pres Club SAMUEL ISAIAH SCHEVACK St. Louis, Missouri Sam received his early schooling in the “Show Me” State and worked for the St. Louis Star-Times as a reporter. He is employed by the War Department. Prior to coming to National he attended George Washington University. His ambition is to be a defense attorney — “the champion of the little man”. In the Midnight Oil da s he was as- sistant Editor and wrote the column “Our Profs”. We hope his ambitions will be realized. LISTER SELLS Fresno, California Lister can combine work and pleasure in the correct pro- portion with his keen sense of humor to balance his seri- ous oursuit. He is the father of a young son, who figures “big” in his future ambitions. It has been great to be associated with you for the past three years and we wish you every success! Delta Theta Phi COOKE SETTLE Nashville, Tennessee Cooke is employed at the Bureau of the Census, Depart- ment of Commerce as an Associate Mineral Economist, and we feel sure that with his B.S.E.E. from George Wash- ington University and his LL.B. from National, it will take him a long way in his chosen field. To show how unusual he is, he has “four” favorite professors — and doubles in brass on the side — clarinet and saxaphone. He may be quiet and unassuming, but friendship to Cooke means all that the word implies. The best of luck to you, always! Delta Theta Phi JOHN FRANCIS SEXTON Palisade, Nevada John earned his A.B. from the University of California before settling down to the serious task of obtaining a legal education at National. His favorite professor is Dr. Cassidy. For the duration John will serve the country in one of the branches of the Navjr. ALLAN RUSSELL SILL Barnesville, Ohio Allan sure makes the girls’ hearts beat faster when he writes those beautiful sonnets. Aloim with his writing abil- ity and industrious nature, he has maintained an excellent record in his studies. This is a mere inkling as to the future accomplishments Allan is sure to achieve. BERNICE SIMMONS Houston, Texas The velvet brown eyes of Bernice have been used to good advantage, not only in snaring hearts but in packing away a good knowledge of her subjects and in ferreting out first editions — which she collects. She could win cases, we are Mire, by her ability alone, but her whimsical charm will be no drawback when she stands before a jury. Bernice is definitely going to practice law and we wish and predict for her a splendid future. Cy Pres Club Kappa Beta Pi I MARTHA SIMPSON Springfield, Massachusetts Ole King Cole wasn’t even merry ’till Mitzi joined the Coal Commission and now he’s flaming and we are fum- ing, because we gotta bank our fires in June. Besides, she s the eighth wonder of the world — she likes ALL her pro- fessors but the best guy in the world is her husband, Cooke Settle, who made it a duet and graduates with us (and with her) too. God speed and bless you both! Reporter, Phi Delta Deta Cy Pres Club JUDGE NEWELL SINGLETON Washington, D. C. Judge is one of the most eligible bachelors enrolled at this honorable institution. Before coming to National, he attended Hendrix College and the University of Missouri. He will long be remembered for his mellifluous voice, his friendliness, and for his failure to pass out enough attend- ance cards. He is now connected with Western Union, but we can’t understand how Radio missed him! Sigma Delta Kappa FRANK SIPPLEY Princeton, New Jersey “Sip” came to us with a B.S. from the University of Vir- ginia and says that he is going to return to Princeton, New Jersey to practice law after graduation. Although a first rate athlete, he is finding the hurdles too high when trying to sell tires under O.P.A. restrictions, so he’s going to do something about this immediately and enter the army to help end the rubber shortage. Happv landings, Sip! CHARLES WINFRED SKINNER Huntington, Indiana Charlie Skinner, Lieutenant (j.g.) in the Navy, was dubbed a bachelor of laws in March. Moot Court was his avcrite subject and he hopes that active practice will be his eventual fate. Horseback riding, flying and swimming — three dimension sportsman. Our association with him has been most pleasant and we know his likeable personali- ty will help him succeed. Sigma Nu Phi DOLLIE MURNAN SMITH Washington, D. C. Dollie was awarded a class ring from Phi Delta Delta Legal Sorority for the highest average in completing full work for the Freshman year of all women students. Her abilities are many, and her art work as reproduced in this Docket is “res ipsa Loquitur”. Dollie will be one of our most promising practicing Portias. Phi Delta Delta Cy Pres ELLISON DuRANT SMITH, JR. Lynchburg, South Carolina Ed attended Wofford College in Spartanburg, South Car- olina and will practice in his home state. His hobby is raising bird dogs and fox hounds. His favorite subject was Equity. He is employed in the United States Senate with the Agricultural and Forestry Committee. We wager he’ll follow in his father’s footsteps and we expect to ap- plaud him from fhe gallery some day. Flying Club Interfraternity Council Jural Society Sigma Delta Kappa, Chancellor JOHN PARKER SMITH Washington, D. C. J. Parker attended Emerson Institute and Massachusetts Institute of Technology. During World War I he joined the Officers Reserves of Navy Aviation and expects to re- turn to service. He will practice after taking both the D. C. rnd Maryland bar examinations. Horses are his wise hob- by. Contracts under Prof. Canfield has left a vivid impres- sion on J. Parker. At present he is employed with the Veteran’s Administration. Sigma Delta Kappa Flying Club RAYMOND CURTIS SMITH East Lansdowne, Pennsylvania Another of our Smith boys. Raymond attended The Wharton School of Accounts and Finance of the Univer- sity of Pennsylvania. His law is to better prepare him to earn a living and he has found it interesting and has been happy at the opportunity to study it. His diversion is the theatre and concerts. He will serve the country and if preferences will be heard it will be in the Medical Corps. Sigma Delta Kappa WILLIAM FRANCIS SMITH William is with the Lands Division, Department of Justice Prof. Baldinger is his favorite because he’s such a swell person. And Tennis is his sport because it’s a good racquet. He will practice but his number is the next one to yours. WILFRED BYRON SORRELL Hyattsville, Maryland Rip came to National after attending Wilson Teachers College. He is employed at F.B.I. This year a beautiful and lovely brunette said “I do” to Wilfred. After gradua- tion he may help the J. Edgar Hoover forces police the U. S. A. Sigma Delta Kappa Interfraternity Council HENRY STEIN Washington, D. C. Being a native Washingtonian has been no handicap to Henry. Although he is quiet and reserved, when called upon to recite extemporaneously he has never failed to answer with eloquence and vicissitude. We are confident Henry will be successful in the legal field. Prof. Patter- son and contracts were his favorites. Alpha Beta Phi MABEL ELIZABETH STOCKTON Allardt, Tennessee “Mabeth” returned to her home state last fall and passed their bar examination with flying colors. She is a grand person and a tireless worker for the class. She has always managed to do more than her share of any work and we can never thank her sufficiently for her flawless job as Circulation Manager of this year’s Docket. Mabel thinks our school is tops and ditto for the students; and we think she will attain the top in her practice of law. Kappa Beta Pi Apex Honor Society Cv Pr Club Docket Staff, Circulation Manager Who’s Who in American Universities and Colleges THOMAS STUART STRONG Bunker Hill, West Virginia Tom became acquainted with law making in the West Virginia Legislature in 1933-34 and decided to follow it up by getting a degree from National University.

His ability and winning personality will carry him far in his chosen field. Sigma Delta Kappa JEAN MONROE STURGEON Amarillo, Texas Jean hopes to he a corporation lawyer some day, even though the military service may soon interfere with his career, hut in the meantime the government is utilizing his services as an Examiner in the Bureau of Internal Revenue. Dr. Husserl’s teachings left a lasting impression on this serious-minded person. Best of luck to you in your chosen profession. Sigma Delta Kappa RALPH A. STYER Phoenixville, Penna. After securing his A.B. at George Washington, Ralph decided on law as a chaser, and he took it in stride too! Ralph is no ordinary fellow — his favorite subject is common law pleading, his hobbies, music and horticulture. We are sure his knowledge of the law will take him speedily to those heights of attainment for which he is aiming! CORINNE M. TANGUAY New York, New York Like her namesake Eva — the “I don’t care girl of yester- year” — Corinne is always bubbling over for a new adven- ture. Beneath her exterior gaiety will be found a serious mind that yearns for learning and achievement. Sincere in her studies, as she is with her friends, we predict a bright future in whatever she chooses to do. CV Pres Club Flying Club DONALD KENT TAYLOR Springfield, Illinois Donald is a 20th Century Lincoln. His likeable person- ality has won him the lasting friendship of his Frat broth- ers. He says Dr. Cassidy’s humor and wit made every lecture an event to remember. Vice-Chancellor, Sigma Delta Kappa DAVID H. THOMPSON Chester, Pennsylvania He attended the evening school of Accountancy and Finance at the University of Pennsylvania in 1934 and to complete this background, “Tommy” came to National to secure his LL.B. When his school days are over, he plans to enlist in the Naval Reserve. Wherever he goes — our best wishes go with him! Treasurer, Sigma Delta Kappa NANCY AUBYNE THOMPSON Zanesville, Ohio Nancy possesses many boy friends — ergo, she is witty and charming; and many girl friends — ergo, she is sweet and friendly. She came to National from George Washing- ton University and with a background of exoerience in the Department of Justice and an LL.B. on her young shoulders, we find nothing but success ahead for her. Dancing and horseback riding are her hobbies and she has proclaimed that Professor Canfield is her favorite faculty member. Cy Pres Club, Reporter Docket Staff WILLIAM R. THORNTON Chicago, Illinois In the last World War, Bill was a little young to enlist — only the State Militia would accept him — but he saw plenty of action there. After the 1st Armistice, he chose the Windy City for his work and study and on the cam- pus of Northwestern University, he learned accountancy which he is now applying to good advantage in the Gen- eral Accounting Office in Washington. With his LL.B. well-earned, he is seeking a Commission in the Army to do service for Uncle Sam in the second World War. His favorite teacher was Professor Baldinger, who, in his own words, is a “fine guy”! Sigma Delta Kappa JOHN G. TRAPNELL Metter, Georgia Jacks liking for logic led him to study law. He is with the District Vehicle and Traffic Department and probably will be m service soon. He has the hobbies of outdoor sports and traveling, but not on the hit and run idea. Ex- amination D.T.’s and getting a “mortar board” were his outstanding events at school. A good part of our tall slender Georgian is the true southern hospitality with a lesser amount of drawl. Sigma Kappa Delta WILLIAM VASSIL Manchester, New Hampshire Bill is employed by the Army in the Office of the Provost Marshal General. He was stationed in Honolulu for three years with the 19th U.S. Infantry, 1932-5. Our six-foot three-inch laconic New Englander claims that deep-dish apple pie is his favorite but we have it on authority that it really is his lovely wife and new heir. Sigma Delta Kappa, Vice Chancellor MELLON OWEN WASHBURN Groveton, Texas We are proud to present our “Horatio Alger” who has been on his own since he hit the high age of 13 years. He toured our country thoroughly and served our country for many years. He now is a Lieutenant (j.g.), U.S. Naval Air Reserve. We would like to share with you his entire biography but may we attempt to cover it by saying that Mellon is truly a self-made man. Completing law has been the ascertainment of a life-long ambition. We wish you all the success only you deserve and may the best of luck keep with you. Sigma Nu Phi, Registrar of the Exchequer STANLEY BOYKIN WATSON Brandywine, Maryland Stanley was knighted “Bachelor of Arts” at the Univer- sity of Maryland. He is a man we have all learned to ad- mire and like. His ability to make friends and to learn the law and know how to use it will carry him a long way to- ward success. Prof. Munter’s sales course was an outstand- ing event and Dr. Cassidy’s Constitutional law course was his favorite. A native “Frec-Stater” he expects to practice there. All your classmates cordially wish you “Good luck”, Stanley. Sigma Nu Phi JAMES V. WELCH Washington, D. C. James is a clerk at the Department of Justice. He, too, expects to serve with our forces to assist in winning jus- tice for the world. Sigma Delta Kappa HOMER N.

Delta Theta Phi WILLIAM SHERMAN WILLETT Los Angeles, California Bill takes his schooling seriouslv, as evidenced bv his attendance at Stanford University and George Washington University. With a background such as this he can’t help but succeed in his chosen career, that of practicing law. Coin collecting is a hobby with him because “it’ll stop in- flation.’’ Always active in school affairs and willing to lend a helping hand to others — just some of the outstanding characteristics of Bill. Our hats off to you, Bill, and best of luck.

Clarence now is with War Ordnance, Fiscal and Legal Division. LEONARD MARC YAGER New York, New York Leo attended New York University but decided law at National would be a wiser choice. In 1941 he was awarded the prize in Common Law Pleading, and without doubt that proves law is his dish. Dr. Baldinger is Leo’s favorite faculty member because he is a plain, regular fellow who knows the law and how to instruct. He has been a cooper- ative classmate and we wish him the mostest of the bestest. Alpha Beta Phi, Exchequer GENEVIEVE ASENATH YONKERS Flintstone, Maryland A bearer of degrees and honors.

Zyg also expects to be in the army soon. EMMETT JENNINGS O’BRYAN Charles Town, West Virginia We confess our e rror, Emmett, but the O’B’s were vio- lative of the rule against multifariousness.

We salute you and wish for you well-deserved success in your chosen career. Raymond M. Gralton, Vice President ; Mary A. Farquhar. Secretary ; Dick Con- nally, Treasurer ; John F. Clardy, Sergeant at Arms ; Ira F. Reese, Historian. Class istorg “Far better it is to dare mighty tilings — to win glorious tri- umphs — even though checkered by failure — than to take rank with those poor spirits who neither enjoy much nor suffer much — because they live in the gray twilight that knows not victory nor defeat.” The goal toward which we have striven so long — which three years ago seemed so far away — which many times we wondered whether or not we might ever achieve — has at last been gained. The National University Law School, Class of ’42, turned out an outstanding group of budding young lawyers, the like of which has not been surpassed in the entire history of the University. Feeling the necessity for an early crystallization of policy, the Class of ’42 set out promptly to elect its officers for the Senior year. Minus the soap-box oratory and cross-purposes of other years, nominations took place in a friendly, business- like atmosphere. Many able candidates were named for the various offices, but principal interest centered around the selection of a president. The final choice of the class was Fletcher Mitchell, President; Raymond Gralton, Vice-President; Alice Farquhar, Secretary; Dick Connally, Treasurer; Edison Farquhar, Sergeant- at-arms; and Jerry Reese, Historian. Especially worthy of the praise and thanks of the Class of ’42 are those mem- bers of the Docket staff who have devoted so much time and effort to making this yearbook a reality. Suffice it to say that they are those persons who have always exhibited a wholesome class spirit, but we have especially felt the force of their personalities in this particular endeavor. Also entitled to a word of recognition are those persons who have been awarded various prizes at National. The Chancellor’s Gold Medal for the highest average in the Freshman class went to Andy Ruddock. The Hurst Gold Medal for the high- est average in the Junior class was won by Eldred W. Cox. In both of the forego- ing awards, Ralph D. Hagerman gained honorable mention. Other prize winners for high marks in various subjects were Catherine Ann Scally, Leonard M. Yager, Vincent J. Kohoutek, Murray Comarow and William J. Blake. With the recall to active duty in the U S. Navy of Assistant Chancellor Eu- gene Carusi, not alone the Class of ’42, but the entire University felt a distinct loss.

As we go forth treasuring friendships formed, and with gratitude to our in- structors for their patient efforts to impart to us the knowledge of this most ancient and learned profession, may we never forget the sacred obligation of the Blind God- dess of Justice at whose shrine we have so tirelessly knelt. In the eyes of the pub- lice we occupy a position more exalted than that of a mere advocate. Let us resolve that in espousing the cause of a client we shall not seek to prevail by a compromise with Justice. We must always suplimate our own interests to the broader interests of mankind in perpetuating the integrity of the law. IRA F. “JERRY” REESE Historian. GRAYDON L. ANDREWS LAWRENCE J.

STRICKLAND 3Jrcfll|man ffilass History We have made a momentous decision in our life in following that road leading to an LL.B. and we must not let it fade out and be lost in the distant horizon. Now, more than ever before, we must put our shoulders to the wheel with the determination to someday complete our courses. Interruptions may come our way but until they do we must concentrate all our efforts to gain a sense of accomplishment from classes at National University. Incidents to remember include: our twelve Federal Bureau of Investigation employees with their “do or die” attitude at elec- tion time; the cigars “tendered” by three of the boys; feminine pulchritude being “justly enriched” by a diamond from a former student; the “drunken” visitor ex- pounding his philosophy; that eloquent “no second choice” comeback at Dr. Cassidy; our stalwa rt representative on the debate team ; the entire class, sooner or later, gaining “possession” of Dr. Baldinger’s watch; unrelated discussions over a “coke” of legal knowledge and the almighty draft number; these and many others will re- call to mind your first year as a law student. May we meet in future years, mes amis, (quoting Dr. Cassidy) before the bar ! DIXIE T. SMITH President ANNE H. MONROE Class Historian Virginia L.

KENNETH V. SHANE Nason, Illinois Kenneth will long remember Na- tional’s splendid faculty — especially Dr. Gellerman’s keen, analytical mind. Won’t we all? t(|e The first social event of the year, the reception for new students and faculty. The corridors, faculty room, and chancellor’s office blossomed forth with palms, ferns, flowers, softly lighted candles, tea or punch, little cakes, and slightly self- conscious students and faculty. But the stiffness wore off, dissolved in friendliness, and everyone was happy. Club and student activities began almost immediately. The Student Body held a meeting for nominations of candidates, and then proceeded to elect officers for the year. In a sharp contest Rodriguez emerged victorious as president, Scott as vice- president, De Lind as secretary, and Lacy as treasurer. E. . G.’s first party of the year, a get together ably put over by Jack Boam, Bill Scott, and Jerry Pikul, held at Nesline’s Restaurant on Rhode Island Avenue.

Centro Hispanoamericano, launched forth on its second year of “promoting in- ter-American understanding” with great success. Officers elected were Gosgrove, Boatright, and Nishio. The French classes under the leadership of Jerry Pikul formed a club, which held dinner meetings at L’Escargot and an occasional social at the home of one of its members. The Economics Club under the sponsorship of Dr. Whitney, and leadership of Wilson, Sornson and Bohnke continues to delve into supply and demand, diminish- ing returns, and price ceilings. Another serious group — the students of Public and Personnel Administration. Their club under the able direction of Leon Zieger, supplemented its class room work with a program featuring addresses by experts in various fields of public ad- ministration. Pearl Harbor!!! Classmates appear in uniform. Some leave for the battle- fields. Blackouts at school — air raid instructions — the constant reminder of war! Exams again, and to sooth the shattered students nerves a party followed at the Hayloft. Dancing, refreshments and fun ! Now the spring term — the final plunge into studies, activities, and 1941-1942 passes into history. AGNES COSGROVE Ap ex Monov Society In 1910 a group of eight far-sighted students consolidated to form a society which would give recognition to those students who not only attained a high scho- lastic average, but also, by their zealous and consistent activities in University in- terests, merited the honor of public recognition. This Society was appropriately named the Apex Honor Society. By old standards it was believed that the average student could absorb him- self in his books and eventually emerge a prodigy of erudition; but according to the standards of capitol society this did not mean he had become an honor student. He would also have to possess those qualities of character and personality which would render his membership in the Society desirable. In order to be considered for membership a student must qualify under the new point system by attaining at least fifty points, thirty of which are awarded for a minimum scholastic average of 85%. After completing the first term of the Sophomore year, a Law School student attaining the required number of points may make application to the Society to be considered for membership. The Society is limited to twenty-four active members. The Apex Honor Society is the only organization of its kind in National Uni- versity, and as evidence of the high esteem in which it is held, participation in extra- curricular activities has greatly increased by reason of students desiring to qualify for membership.

The major- ity of the original members of this club were ' ‘soloed” at this airport. The club’s purpose is to foster the national objectives of the N. I. F. C. in the development of college flying. Though the outbreak of the war in the latter part of the year 1941 temporarily suspended the private licenses of our members, the club will continue to live in order that the “legal eagles” of National University may always be a factor in American aviation.

Smith Club Toward the close of the academic year 1940-41 a group of students engaged in graduate work carried into effect a plan for furthering the interests of those students who continued in school for further professional training beyond that required for the Bachelor’s Degree or bar examination. It had been felt for some time that there was a distinct field of service for an organization which would further the scholastic, social and professional interests of graduate students, and would thus encourage future students to undertake that additional year of work which it is hoped in each case will serve to “crown the edifice of professional training”. The new organization was enthusiastically received by the student body. At the first Annual Banquet in honor of the recipients of graduate degrees in June, 1941, the “launching address” was delivered by Chancellor Leslie C. Garnett, the charter was presented by Dean Charles Pergler, both of the speakers being in- troduc ' d by the jovial Master of Ceremonies, Professor Godfrey L. Hunter. Dr. Lewis C. Cassidy, Faculty Advisor ; John F. Miller, Vice-President ; Lee Berger, Corresponding Secretary ; E. William Koontz, Treasurer. ®I ] b fund The Jural Society was founded in National University on the first day of March, 1941 . The names of its charter members appear upon the opposite page. The members of the Society are proposed by the Dean and confirmed by the co- founders who still remain in school. The senior members, acting as a senate, there- after have the privilege of confirmation. In proposing members, the Dean, the eminent Honorable Charles Pergler, known in Europe as well as in America for his statesmanship, idealism and scholar- ship, is guided by considerations of leadership, humanism, and scholarship. Law is a social science. It is a means to certain ends which society has acertained for itself. These ends may shift. The means towards the accomplishment of these ends must be re-defined from time to time. Because of this, the study of law becomes at once interesting, fascinating and spellbinding. The true lawyer does not exploit his fellow citizens; instead, he aims to better his community through wise laws. While the membership of the Jural Society is constantly studying law in action as well as law in books and the great legal classics, the distinguished reformers of the law are not forgotten. Neither race, creed, class or nationality are considered as factors in determin- ing the membership of the Jural Society. Laws are in vain w here the soul is bar- barous. GILBERT L. BATES THOMAS K.

(Club M. P. MAYNARD President Tlie light of Freemasonry first appeared at National University in the year 1920 with the installation of the National University Masonic Club, a club now affiliated with the National League of Masonic Clubs. Good fellowship, one of the cardinal principles of Freemasonry, has been pro- claimed during the last two decades; and student scholarships, a tribute to the generosity of the late Charles F. Carusi, bear tangible evidence of its charity. Through the moulding and strengthening of the character of the individual man. Freemasonry has been shown to improve the general human welfare. Today, when we are fighting for the survival of our institutions admist a world in chaos, there is even greater need for fraternal harmony and the brotherhood of free man as personified by the principles of Freemasonry.

O’BRYAN Dean The Charles Evans Hughes Senate of the Delta Theta Phi law fraternity was established in the spring of 1941 and is the youngest of the fraternal groups at National University. Formerly a local fraternity known as Beta Lambda Sigma, this group, realizing the benefits to be derived from a strong national legal society, petitioned Delta Theta Phi for its permission to establish the present chapter. Per- sonal permission for the honor of using his name was granted by the former Chief Justice of the Supreme Court of the United States. The fraternity has as its basic principle the furtherance of friendly association among its members and mutual aid in curricular activities.. Harry J. Ockershausen, Tribune ; Fletcher D.

By the in- stallation of Alpha Omicron Chapter in Paris, France, in November, 1927 , Kappa Beta Pi became the first fraternal organization, general or professional, to install a chapter on the European continent. Today, there are 49 student chapters in recognized 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, Germany, 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 recognition in National University, today has a membership of approximately 100 and is the largest student chapter in the sorority.

INTERNATIONAL ) Phi Delta Delta Legal Sorority was founded November 11, 1911 in the Uni- versity of Southern California at Los Angeles, upon the ideals of justice, wisdom, love, loyalty, and truth. Its purpose is to promote the highest standard of profes- sional ethics and culture among women in law schools and in the legal profession. Alpha Lambda Chapter was installed in National University July 1, 1928. Phi Delta Delta today has chapters in nearly all of the leading co-educational law schools in the United States and Canada, with foreign associates in India, Egypt, Denmark, Austria, Portugal, the Netherlands, and Mexico. There are 57 undergraduate and alumnae chapters, with a total membership of over 1600. The Sorority lias an endowment fund for the purpose of aiding students who need financial assistance to complete their l aw studies. Each year an award is pre- sented by Phi Delta Delta to the freshman woman student at National University achieving the highest scholastic average. A principal recent fraternal activity was the participation of Phi Delta Delta in the first conference of the Inter-American Bar Association held at Habana in March, 1941. The Inter-American Bar Association has for its primary objective the establishment and maintenance of relationships between associations of lawyers, national and local, in the various countries of the Americas. It will serve as a med- ium for an exchange of ideas to further understanding and good neighborliness among those engaged in the science of jurisprudence in the Western hemisphere. Phi Delta Delta became the first legal fraternity to join th Inter-American Bar As- sociation when Catherine L. Vaux, First Vice President, signed the Constitution of the Association for Phi Delta Delta in March, 1910. Some of the prominent members are Mrs. Mabel Walker Willebrandt, Honor- ary President of the sorority and former Assistant Attorney General of the United States; Honorable Ruth Bryan Rhode, former Congresswoman from Florida and ex-Minister to Denmark; Judge Fay Bentley of the Juvenile Court of the District of Columbia; Honorable Georgia Bullock, Judge of the Superior Court of California, and a founder of the sorority; Judge Lucy Howorth, of the U. S. Veterans Board of Appeals; Judge Marion Harron of the U. S. Board of Tax Appeals; Dr. Emma Wold; Honorable Jeannette Rankin, Congresswoman from Montana; Plonorable An- nabel Matthews; Honorable Sophia O’Hara; Mary Agnes Brown; and Elisabeth Prender Buchanan, Honorary President of Alpha Lambda Chapter.

SMITH MARION GILMORE STRAWN IRENE V. WRIGHT LOUIS S. HILLMAN President 3lttter ratrautg fflomtttl Realizing the need for closer cooperation and coordination of the fraternal activities of National University, a meeting was held in 1938 by members of the various fraternities, which resulted in the formation of the Inter-Fraternity Council. As provided by the constitution adopted in February 1939, the Council con- sists of two representatives from each of the member fraternities: Sigma Delta Kappa, Phi Beta Gamma, Alpha Beta Phi, and Delta Theta Phi. The present officers and representatives are: President, Louis S. Hillman; Vice-President, Theodore Le Blanc; Secretary, William Budroe; Treasurer, W. Byron Sorrell; Alpha Beta Phi, Cyrus Gunsberg; Delta Theta Phi, Lister Sells; Phi Beta Gamma, John Clardy; Sigma Delta Kappa, Ellison D. Smith, Jr. The history of the Council is notable for its efforts to promote the mutual in- terests of its members and to further the welfare of the student body and of the University itself. It has fostered those ideals of legal ethics and training inculcated in the minds of the students by the splendid faculty which has always held before us the picture of the true lawyer in the American tradition. It is our hope that the spirit of cooperation shown by the Council and its members in the past may be an incentive and inspiration to those who follow to carry on the work to greater heights. ELLISON D. SMITH, JR. Chancellor jSigitm Bella Bappa The Sigma Delta Kappa fraternity was founded in 1914 at the University of Michigan. It lias had rapid growth until now there are 28 active and 10 alumni chapters throughout the United States. Mu Chapter was chartered in March, 1921 at National University. Each suc- ceeding year new members have come seeking for knowledge of the law, later to de- part instilled with the law and the ideal for which our fraternity stands. Thus it will be in future years — a link to this ever-growing chain of Mu Chapter history. The past year has been one for which its officers and members my feel justly proud. Our fraternity is dedicated to ideals of Christian character and scholarship in order that its members may become more learned in the law and honored members of this ancient and honorable profession.

Eligibility for selection and listing in Who’s Who requires two full years of training and students must be rated as a junior or senior or have advanced standing. Qualifications required consist of a combination of a four-point test: — charac- ter,. leadership in extra-curricular activities, scholarship and potentialities of future usefulness to business and society. The students, before acceptance by Who’s Who, are carefully and impartially selected after thorough consideration as to all the required requisites. The purpose of Who’s Who is to serve as an incentive for students to get most out of their college careers ; as a means of compensation to students for what thev have already done; as a standard of measurement for students comparable to such agencies as Phi Beta Kappa and the Rhodes Scholarship award; and, as a recorn- mendtion to the business world.

In “Official Stream” lived a widow with her five children, among whom I am the second youngest. Despite the little education she had received at home, my mother was broadmineded and far-sighted. She saw to it that all her children obtained a good cultural training. One of her ambitions lingered in the attainment of woman’s social rights and freedom, for in her days the Chinese women’s social status was much inferior to that of men. The old Chinese custom denied daughters the rights of inheritance. My mother was forced to adopt two sons in order to inherit my father’s immense estate. She rebelled against this social inequality, and hoped that the custom could be changed for the betterment of the weaker sex. One day she remarked to me: “I hope that my children will help the women of China. Perhaps you will become a lawyer and labor for the uplift of our women’s position.” Although rather uncon- cerned then, her words stamped deeply in my mind. That was why I studied law hoping that some day my humble service will profit China’s womanhood. My young imagination of being enrolled in a reputable school was realized when my mother declared one day that I could attend Wen Shan Girls’ School, which was situated in the city proper. While vehicles could not operate on the steep mountain steps, my sister and I were carried in a sedan chair by three strong coolies. For awhile we were greatly thrilled. However, calamity fell upon us with- out a moment’s notice. Whether we were too heavy a load or the bamboo poles were not endurable, my sister and I were suddenly dumped on the ground when the chair poles broke. While I was not physically hurt, my poor sister suffered a serious in- jury and had to return home. I proceeded my journey by being carried on the back of a coolie. What an experience it was — the first day of school ! After finishing higli school I enter Hwa Nan College which conferred upon me the B.A. degree in 1928. I have had the happiest time of my life during those college days. Easter concerts, May Fete, summer conferences, Chirstmas celebra- tions, Junior and Senior nights, glee club, pageants and various other extra-cur- ricular activities crowded our enthusiastic lives. Between 1928-1985 I taught schools first in China and then in Singapore. In the summer of 1935 with my mother’s ad- vice, I sailed to America for further education. During the last six years I attended Johns Hopkins University, the American University, and National University, which conferred upon me the Master’s degree in 1938. Finally, my mother’s wish has been partially fulfilled when I obtained the J. D. degree from National University in September 1941. Now, I pay my re- spects and appreciation to all teachers for their guidance and instructions. More- over, allow me to present my best wishes to all schoolmates. May we strive our best to serve humanity, to achieve the victory of democratic ideals, freedom and inter- national peace.

W HILE the decision in this cele- brated case was merely to the effect that the negligence of the plain- tiff in leaving his animal on the highway so fettered as to prevent its getting ou t of the way of vehicles did not preclude recovery against the de- fendant, today it constitutes the cor- nerstone of one of the most important exceptions to the doctrine of contribu- tory negligence. In some jurisdictions, it is called the doctrine of last clear chance, while some jurisdictions call it the doctrine of discovered peril, while others de- note it as the doctrine of supervening negligence, and still other states characterize it as the humanitarian doctrine. See 38 AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE , title NEGLIGENCE , section 215 et sequitur for . . . 1. A statement of the doctrine (see. 215). 11. Its origin and nature (see. 211i). III. Its requisites and conditions (sees. 217-225). IV. Its scope and application (see. 225 et seq.). This is illustrative of the AMERICAN JURISPRUDENCE way of pre- senting the rules of law governing the 400 main subjects of the legal alphabet from Abandonment to Zoning.
