" ... to acquaint the student of law with the traditions and the humanity of law; to foster a spontaneous affection for the principles that should pervade the legal profession; to promote solidarity and fel- lowship among the law students; to per- petuate the spirit of Notre Dame in the ranks of the profession in after life. " OO READS THE PREAMBLE to the Constitution of the Student Law Associa- tion. Under the capable direction of George Fletcher, a senior in Law school, the Asso- ciation, once known as the Law Club, carries out its aims in many ways. It spon- sors the freshman reviews to acquaint in- coming law students with some of the technical aspects of law school; it holds a Communion breakfast each semester to foster the growth of religion in the individual members; it conducts a smoker each semester to promote good-will and friendship among the students; it sponsors the Spring Formal and the Law Ball to give the lawyers- to-be their own social functions; and it gives the Senior Banquet in honor of the senior law class. Such promi- ment men as Senator Herbert O ' Connor and Justice Tom Clark are numbered among the guest speakers who have appeared at previous senior banquets. The Student Law Association also initiated the Legal Assistance program for Notre Dame students and employees. The FIRST ROW: R. H. Michaud, L. Mustica, R. Downey, J. Deeb, T. Broden (moderator), G.

Layden. law doesn ' t permit law students to handle cases, but they are allowed, and qualified, to give legal advice and help to those in need, and to guide them in choos- ing a lawyer. This new program will also give the law students an opportunity to familiarize themselves with factual cases and thereby gain valuable experience. Summed up briefly, the Student Law Association has but one purpose to make the Notre Dame man a better man, in the eyes of his country and in the eyes of his God.

The Bookmen A RECENT ADDITION to the extra-curricular scene is Bookmen, an organized discussion group that has not existed on campus since 1946. Bookmen was revived early in the spring semester by a few students interested in an organization for a serious exchange of ideas on contemporary literature and the arts. Since the " old " Bookmen provided a pattern for such an organization, a renaissance of the club was soon under- Seated: Richard L. Kilmer ( moderator I , James Bates (president). Standing: Frank Haendler (vice president), Hugh Schadle (secretary-librarian). way. As the idea grew, so did the number of interested students and, after a speedy formation of a constitution and election of permanent officers, Bookmen emerged as a firm and full-fledged campus organization. In its basic plan the club follows the pre-war Bookmen. The subject matter for discussions, formally defined as " literature and the allied arts, " actually includes any field from which a " meaty " discussion can be drawn. Politics, Economics, Science, History are all delved into by the members. The only definite restriction to subject matter is that material for discussion must be drawn from writings of the contemporary period, which is roughly outlined as writings from the middle of the nineteenth century to the present. The discussions themselves are relatively informal. A member may either present a paper on his topic, which is afterwards discussed by the members, or he may simply initiate the discussion directly and guide it along various phases he has planned. Very often the meeting time is divided in half, and two members pre- sent separate or related topics. The structure of the club has few ramifications. The officers include a president, who arranges for a program for each meeting and presides between discussions; a vice president, who is in charge of new membership proceedings; and a secretary-librarian, who keeps a record of meetings and arranges for borrowing and lending of books between members. The time and place of meeting is decided by all the members at the begin- ning of each semester. Bookmen ' s re-activation this year has met with great success. The members hope that continued interest on the part of students will re-establish its firm place of the past as a campus organization.

Father Hesburgh, Father Lochner and Mr. and Mrs. Patrick Crowley at the final session. 434 SENIORS, after three and a half years of attendance at hundreds of lec- tures which they were required to attend in order to obtain their degrees, voluntarily re- quest tickets to attend a series of fifteen lectures which they are not required to attend, you have some evidence of the interest shown this year in the Marriage Institute. This is the third time such a series has been offered here by the Department of Religion. We hope that it will be possible to present a similar series every spring. Those eligible to attend are all seniors, graduate students, married students, and any student who plans on being married before the next Marriage Institute will take place. All sessions were held in the Law Auditorium. The sessions were conducted in informal style with the speakers remaining seated at a table on which were three matched microphones, part of a special public address system set up just for the Marriage Institute. There was also Student ' s Comments From a questionnaire filled out by the students at the end of the lecture series, the following comments are of interest: " It certainly improved my outlook on matrimony, namely, the spiritual and psychological side. " " Very informative. " " I received the answers to many very important questions in- volved in marriage that I very likely would not ever have hod answered properly anywhere else. " " Possibly the most worthwhile evenings spent at Notre Dame, aimed at temporal and external happiness. " " I liked the sincerity of the speakers, their real desire to be helpful. " " It gave me an inside view of marriage. " " It was to the point and should prove very helpful in later life. The talks were full of details and hints. " " It instructed me on the Christian principles that should be carried into marriage. " " I liked the informal way it was carried on. " " I liked the presence of laymen on the panels. " " I liked Father Sheedy ' s frankness and the attitude of the Crowleys. " " I liked the question period after the talks for they helped to learn of other ' s problems. " " It gave me a good insight into how to cope with problems that I will meet. " " I liked the frank medical discussion because Dad certainly didn ' t tell me. " " I liked the frankness with which it was conducted. " Rev. R. ]. Lochner, C.S.C. and Ed Krause on the first discussion
