Q Mullah on the faculty
Would you like a short vacation
From the cares of mundane
Would you like to listen, spell-
While you watch a man draw
Then just take this invitation
That you turn your steps our
And direct them to the Law
And get ready for the play.
First of all, We have a teacher
Who is not unknown to fame,
Who's a friend of Teddy Roose-
Doctor Lewis is his name.
You must pay most strict atten-
To the things he has to say,
Or you WO11,t know how to an-
What he wants, in just his
For he'll tell you of his Dexter,
He's a most amazing horse,
Who is sometimes worth a for-
From his speed upon the
And perhaps he'll mention
VVho's the best known of his
Or mayhap he'll speak of An-
And his multi-colored hogs.
For he has a large assortment-
A menagerie, in fact-
And he is not loath to use them
When he hasn't got an Act,
Which he hopes the next As-
Will adopt and make the law:
just at present We've been strug-
With the worst you ever saw.
Introduce now, his Aunt Betsy,
She's his wealthy, good, old
Ev'ry week or so she leaves him
Rich as Croesusg but he can't
Like a spendthrift use the
For it is a sacred trust,
For Clarissa, his pet mammal-
When he knew it, how he
Elephants, you know, are healthy
And as long lived as can be,
So you really cannot blame him,
For you'd do the same-"Di
you see ?"
But his little hour is finished:
Visitor, you now must move
To the courts of Billey Mikell-
At an argument he's smooth,
And as soft and gently spoken
As all men that you e'er saw,
'Till he hears it said that "each
Is presumed to know the law."
For the Dean will surely catch
If you try to work the bluff
That you have the case all
And you soon will cry,
If you want some real good
How to make a "coffin-nail,"
See the Dean-he rolls 'em
And has ne'er been known to
Then we have for your inspec-
Francis Bohlen, dubbed "Me

He can talk more loud and
Than the best prof in the land,
And can use such faultless Eng-
That some fail to understand.
But for him you have to hurryg
If you chance to come in late,
Well, the wiser course is not to:
In the hall you'd better wait.
For at repartee he's skillful,
And he sure can "bawl you
And as you can make no answer
The result is not in doubt.
just the opposite is Amram:
His reproof is soft, yet keen,
And the laugh is on the tardy-

For his office is an instance ,
Of the always "Open Doorf'

The ifaisturp nf the
- Q N I78Q the first effort was made to establish a professor-
il-5 Ship of law in the University of Pennsylvania. The
' , Q choice fell upon james Wilson then at the height of his
reputation as a leader of the b-ar, but better known as a
'H f? member of the convention that framed the Constitution
W of the United States, and later as an associate justice of
the Supreme Court of the United States.
The course of study was planned to cover three years and con-
sisted of three lectures a Week at 6 P. M. with a special course on
Saturday. The opening lecture was delivered on December 17,
1790, before a distinguished audience, including President and Mrs.
Washington, members ofthe Cabinet and Congress as Well as city
officials and judges. The first course was carried to a successful
conclusion, but in the second year the course was abandoned and
no law degrees were conferred during the incumbency of Mr. Wil-
No successor to james Wilson was appointed until january 7,
1817 when Charles Willing Hare, Esquire, was elected professor.
He delivered his introductory course in that year, but, before the
second course could be delivered Mr. Hare's health gave way and,
once more, there was a vacancy in the chair of law. There was
nothing strange about this failure to establish law courses in the
University at this early date. Similar attempts in other universities
also resulted in failureg even Chancellor Kent's lectures failed to
attract students. The public at this time did not demand a scien-
tifically educated barg some little reading with practical experience
in an office was regarded as the best qualification for practice. 1
In 1850 the Law School of the University of Pennsylvania was
finally and permanently established with the election as professor
of George Sharswood, then judge of the District Court of Phila-
delphia. judge Sharswood enjoyed a reputation for both learning
and urbanity and it was his personality that drew students to his
lectures and placed the school on a firm foundation. In 1852 two
additional professors were added, Peter McCall and E. Spencer
On july 2, 1852 the first public commencement of the school
was held when degrees were conferred in law. At this time the
University was located on Ninth Street between Market and
Chestnut, the site of the present Federal building. When, however,
the site was purchased by the United States Government and the
University moved to West Philadelphia, the Law School also moved
with it and the Faculty was still further increased. During this
early period the teaching force was drawn entirely from distin-
guished members of the bench and bar among whom may be men-
tioned Hon. J. I. Clark Hare, a pioneer of the History of Con-
tract Law, and George Tucker Bispham, F.sq., whose work on
Equity has become one of the most popular text-books of the coun-
try. During this period the success of the school depended alto-
gether on the personality of the teaching force. The system of
instruction was by lecture, there was no library and no accommo-
dation for the students. It was during this time that the law clubs
were established which have played such an important part in the
Law School work. 'In 1886 through the generosity of the family
of George Biddle, the Law School Library was founded as a mem-
orial to his memory and at this time it was decided that better
accommodations were needed, if the school was to keep in the van
of legal education.
In 1887 the school moved to Broad and Chestnut Streets
and occupied the sixth floor of the building then known as the
Girard Building, now as the Franklin National Bank Building.
Here the library was installed and in the following year, 1888,
the course of instruction was increased from two to three years.
The Faculty was further increased to nine professors and three
fellows, one elected each year from the graduating class. By 1895
the number of students in the department had so increased that
there was no longer room for them in the space occupied in the
Girard Building. By the courtesy of the city the school -was per-
mitted to occupy quarters in the historic buildings in Independence
Square. Lecture rooms were provided in the small roo-ms about
Independence Hall and, for a time, lectures were delivered in the
room once used as a meeting place of the First House of Repre-
sentatives of the United States, the scene of the Washington second
inauguration. The general quarters of the school were in the old
Criminal Court Building, II5 South Sixth Street, now removed.
At this time all the professors of the school were still members of
the bench or active bar. In 1896 a departure was made when Dr.
William Draper Lewis was elected dean of the school with the
understanding that he give all time to academic work. Many impor-
tant changes now took place. All applicants were required to show
that they had sufficient preliminary training to admit them to the
college department, a requirement then as high as the standards
of other leading law schools. For two years this requirement de-
creased the registration but by the third year it was back again
to normal. Students were now required to attend eighty per cent
of the lectures each year, and the third year subjects were gradu-
ally niade elective. About this time, too, the American Law Regis-
ter, now the University of Pennsylvania Law Review, was adopted
as the official publication of the Law School and has ever since been
conducted by student editors supervised by the Faculty. But in
many ways the most important change of the early part of this
period of the department's history was its removal to its present
quarters in West Philadelphia.
Cn February 21st and 22nd, 1900, in connection with the
Founder's Day exercises, the new building was dedicated. Many
notable guests were present at the University at that time, includ-
ing Justice I-Iarlan, representing the United States Supreme Court,
Gerard Brown Finch, 'representing the Cambridge Universityg Sir
Charles Arthur Roe as Gxford's representative. Oscar Soliman
Straus, United States Minister to Turkey, Wu Ting Fang, Chinese
Ambassador to the United States, were present, as well as many
distinguished educators. The entertainment of the guests was
arranged by committees of the Law Association of Philadelphia,
the Lawyers' Club of Philadelphia and the Pennsylvania Bar Asso-
ciation. In the course of the two days several notable addresses
were delivered and the whole occasion was one such as to be
remembered for a long time by the University and its friends.
The progress of the Law School was not to cease, however,
with its establishment in its splendid new quarters. Since that time
many important changes have taken place which have kept the
school continuously abreast of the leading law schools. ,
Among the helpful features of the modern courses are the
auxiliary lectures, these were begun in 1907. The Law School
is now fortunate also in possessing a large collection of important
legal works. In fact, the growth and development of our law
library should be a source of pride to every Pennsylvania man. In
1896 it contained 10,276 volumesg in just three and a half years
it increased to 22,0005 at the present time there are 58,000 volumes
on its shelves. These include complete sets of English and Amer-
ican reports, Colonial reports, Scotch reports, Canadian reports,
the I-Iawaiian reports, Austrian reports and many sets of periodi-
cals both English and American, also about 3,000 Treaties, Treas-
urer's decisions, Patent reports, Bar Association reports, Ordi-
nances, Digests and Statutes, and a collection of works on Roman
and Civil Law.
It is interesting to note thatthe average age of the student
body has no-t varied very greatly since IQOO. In that year it was
21.2. This year it is 21.4. The age limit of twenty years went
into effect in 1908. For a time it caused a. slight decrease in the
registration, but in five years it was back once more to the normal.
The largest enterlng class in the school's history was the entering
class of 1913, there were 186 in that class. The geographical dis-
tribution of the student body has been slowly but surely widening.
Not so many students are coming from Philadelphia, in proportion
to the numbers, more are coming from Pennsylvania at large, and
more from outside the state than in the former years of the school.
Some important changes in the Law School are of recent date.
Tn 1914 Dr. Lewis was succeeded as dean by Professor Williani E.
Mikell. In the fall of 1915 the entrance standard was raised to
the requirement of a college degree. This requirement places
the school among the three or four graduate law schools in the
country. A course in Legal Ethics was also instituted in the third
The change in the present requirements has, as was expected,
greatly lowered the membership in the first year class. However,
when prospective law students have adapted themselves to the new
requirements, no doubt we will see, as in the past when requirements
were raised, a gradual return to the normal number of students.
It will be seen from this brief resume of the school's history that
the University has from the beginning contributed nobly to the
cause of legal education in America even in days when such ideas
were unpopular and doomed to failure. Now public opinion
demands a higher standard of character, education and efficiency
on the part of its professional men. The pioneer work in the field
of legal education by busy lawyers and judges, considering the
scant support they received was splendidly done. Now, under more
favorable conditions. we may confidently hope for still greater
achievements in the future.

Ilaisturp uf the Qlllass of 1917
By CLARENCE FREEMAN
One hundred and sixty-six blithe and ignorant students, we
came to Law School in September, IQI4, to form the Class of '17
LAW. We were cosmopolitan, democratic and international.
Our first troubles aside from the price of books were our vac-
cination certilicates that the LAW required us to have before we
could be enrolled as members of the University, which we procured
by diverse methods.
We wondered in those days of intellectual infancy why the Law
was called dusty, but on our first visit to the stacks the weight of it
and the dust settled upon us to such a degree that you could fairly
hear one student ask the other, "Did you say you came Clean from
Work began, at least officially. The class buzzed and read its
newspapers in reference to the European war, which was then in its
infancy, and had a much more live interest than law. Mr. Loyd
taught Civil Pro, one of the most unique subjects in the first year,
whereby we contracted the habit of wandering into class about Io-15'
minutes late, which on one occasion irritated Mr. Bohlen so much
that he called us names and on another occasion he threatened to
The Class met one day and in true Convention style elected
George Williams temporary chairman and a committee to draw up
a Constitution, of w.hich Musser was Chairman.
The wise- ones invested in second-hand books, or none at all.
The Class hlled practically the whole first year room. Many pleas-
ant illusions were shattered there, and how some of the boys would
shun it. None of the glory, success or renown was present save the
steel cold smiles of the Learned judges, grinning sardonically down
at us from their engravings around the brown faded burlap which
graced the walls.
Dean Mikell became ill and Crimes stopped. that is, figuratively
speaking, West Philadelphia had eleven robberies in one week and
Bob Liggett threatened to carry a Black Jack. Shattuck was tracked
by sleuths as an up State murderer hiding in the city, but finally
proved an alibi.
We took up a collection for the Belgians at the doors one morn-
ing and how many found those hard seats comfortable? Generosity
certainly was not one of our faults on this occasion. Nevertheless,
our Class somehow came across and gave more than any other Class
inA'phe University, and then WE WERE ALL PROUD of the
Class elections came along-Politics? Mr. McNichol and
Senator Penrose step right this way-you can't possibly succeed
without our course of instruction. Pompey, Crassus and Caesar
were inferior ignoramuses compared with Tumolillo, Kravitch and
others CBonsall and Bellb. Also "Big" McGahren, whose father
was "Some Guy," as he informed the class at the beginning of the
year. Besides 'this old man was counsel for the Pennsy at 315,000
bucks a year." We were deeply impressed and longed for a posi-
tion in such a garden spot as Wilkes-Barre. "Big" was famous.
He was one of the candidates for president. He had all laundries
down to a fine point. When he needed a clean collar he just natu-
rally bought oneg and this he would do once a month, no matter
whether he needed it or not.
Among those who ran for office were Robottom, lack Sprat,
His Wife, Joe Gish and even Col. Rosiveldt. "A what's he want ?"
queried one of the worthies of the class. Many and good were the
speeches that were prepared to nominate the dark horses. The
Great Convention was in full swing. The uproar was deafening.
Here and there were little groups, their backs to the platform, lay-
ing plans for the traps that they should spring, above all, the lustily
raised voice of the chairman shrieking for order. Some accused
others of lobbying. Some second-year men were thrown out.
Finally all the nominations were in and the voting started.
George Williams was elected President-the first freshman
president for years that hadn't been a joke. Hargett received the
Vice Presidency, Katz was elected Secretary and Webby Treasurer.
Then came Thanksgiving. The sports got on their best togs
and took the "Only Girl in the World" to the Penn-Cornell game.
"Whatye think we got our coupon books for?" Several of the
Class appeared at Franklin Field dressed as Special Policemen.
Some system to see the game, wasn't it?
About this time George Williams and Earl Hargett made the
University Debating Team, were sent to New Orleans and won
their debate. I '
After Christmas and the good times it was hard to come back
to Earth, but we had to. Extra steam was crowded on and work
Some, realizing the helplessness of their situation, sank deeper
and deeper into the "Pucks" and "judges" with which they bounti-
fully provided themselves. Others, feeling in the same position
but being outclassed by the "Pucks" and "judges," buzzed even
louder than ever. This state of affairs irritated CSchnitzj Mr.
Schnader so much that one morning he remarked that you could
always tell the true students, because all students were just like
cans QPQ, i. e., the empty ones always made the most noise.
The painting which had been going on all fall finally drove us
out of the Study Hall. There were other causes that militated
toward our expulsion, but we musn't hurt "Slim" Van Syckel's
feelings. He sat near Harvy Geiger. At most unexpected mo-
ments his contagious laugh would escape, and the whole room would
gather round, while Slim, between paroxysms of laughter, would
attempt to explain the Joke.
Harv., with his knowledge of Harvard and how they did it
up there, was soon known as Dean Thayer, and one day was the
unappreciative recipient of a shower of light globes. He was once
called upon in Class as Mr. Geyser! One day he waved his arm
frantically in Class, but the Professor was busy and did not wait
on him immediately. Harv. snapped his fingers in a commanding
manner. What is, it Mr. Geiger? But Harv. had forgotten it.
Quite a few men dropped out in the early spring. The strain
was too great. Mr. Amram had us recite standing facing the class.
and one day he settled a hotly contested point for a Budding Genius,
who was I' Ping it a great deal when he said-purely unintention-
ally-'tWl1at's in your mind is of no consequence." And it wasn't.
We learned from Mr. Bohlen that an "Act of God" was any-
thing disagreeable. He called to our attention that uCourts have
education and common sense, and also that law is not the artificial
science for the prevention of the discovery of Truth." He told
us that a stenographer is a pipe through which a lot passes but in
whom nothing sticks. Does this sound reasonable to you?
Zell awoke one morning in Civil Pro from a profound sleep
and said, "VVhy, Mr. Loyd, if that is the case, we have to know
pleading, don't we P" "Yes," replied Mr. Loyd. The Class on one
occasion teased Harv. while he was reciting for Mr. Amram and got
him so excited that he called us nasty names.
The peace league of Arnold, Saylor, Adams and Boyle propa-
gandized the whole University, but made few converts. "VVhat are
'Ancient Lights'?" asked Mr. Brown one day. Sleepy student in
the corner said, "The Stars."
Cn May ISt off went the steam and we nearly frozeg ten days
before we had literally roasted. All due to the war, said the subtle
thinker. Even the rings around the sun were laid to this cause.
The matching stopped in the corners of the room, Bill Nixon
was even caught on one occasion with a text book under his arm.
The tutors did a rushing business. Every one got particularly
grouchy and complained of seven attacks of indigestion due to lack
of exercise, which they never took anyway, and with a jump one
morning we were in the exams. How we Bled in, got our numbers,
just like so many prisoners! How we agonized for five hours over
those "easy questions" you alone know only too well The exams.
were finally over. We said good-bye to our friends, and putting all
thought of law behind us hastened to our summer jobs or our play,
to forget as quickly and completely as possible that we were Embryo
Lawyersg or, as Herr Bohlen would have it, "Bull Pup Lawyers."
After the execution. Two-thirds of us came back for the
second year. We threw out our chests and strolled around as though
we owned the building, ignored the Bursar's office for the time
being, sold our second-hand books, that had stopped at all the Book-
sellers from Aristotle down, and had spent twenty-seven vacations
at Leary's, for fabulous prices.
At first we were too bored to work, but finally laid aside our
Snappy Stories and took up various "acts" which Dr. Lewis had so
kindly prepared for us. Only the persistent whisperings of Bell
and Love could be plainly heard. We fancied the faculty couldn't
catch us, and the spring was a long way off. The pneumonia squad
kept the windows open and let in gallons of cold air. Kalodner
turned up his collar and protested vigorously, finally aroused public
opinion, snowed the pneumonia squad under, and the windows
Our Class Election was just a little more noisy than the previous
one, if such a thing could be possible. Joe Lamorelle was elected
Presidentg Hirschwald, Vice Presidentg Shattuck, Secretary, and
Vint. Ereedley, Treasurer.
The "unprepared" slogan had its rise in the beginning of the
term, but it fell with a thud when Dean Mikell announced that we
would be marked on our recitationsg thereafter the best calculators
got away with it!
Trusts were hard. and many times when Dr. Lewis said, "Do
you see Pl' we didn't. On one occasion some one suggested singing
hymn 398. which, when looked up, turned out to be "Lead, Kindly
Lifhf"! One morning Dr. Lewis said, "She Passed from the
J ,, , 6 . . .
World. The Class looked blank. He continued for our 6Cll1ClCZlllO1l.
"She Died." The whole Class heaved a sigh. What a simple way
to settle such a complicated problem.
Bunny Perot's sleeping habit becomes a passion. He could be
found asleep on any and all occasions. Cnce Dr. Lewis called on him.
"Sound asleep," said he, looking over his glasses, and passed on to
the next victim. Bunny was awakened by the laughter, blinked
wrathfully for almost a minute and then continued his nap. In
Trusts we learned about "Pearly Pink Pigs" and Beppos that
should be protected. Dr. Lewis even asked one day whether Beppo
could come into court to enforce the perpetual delivery of his
breakfast as decreed in his master's deed of trust. Speculating ran
high. Charley Gordon practiced two or three starts for the door
and finally got away. f
The faculty forbade all Digests, and the Pneumonia Squad again
fell to workl Which one of the profs. they were trying to do away
with has never been discovered. Dr. Lewis got mixed in his meta-
phors one day and said, "If I pick up a rock and hit you over the
head with a brick?" He got no further. Webby disagreed with
the trend of discussion and was vigorously shaking his head in dis-
sent. Dr. Lewis spied his antic. "In order to prevent your shaking
your head off, Mr. Webb, I'll ask you why," said he. Webby told
him, and was wrong! Said Newman most earnestly one day: f'The
question is, What is the interpretation of afford Ca Fordj P" "A
Hivverj' shouted Pete Reigner, and all work was off.
On March 13th-perhaps the date had something to do with
Dr. Lewis' difficulties-he said, "Hogs are raised in Illinois. Every
one out there understands how to raise and slaughter them. Simon
L. Patton, of this University, who was born and raised in
Illinois- ? ? ! I"
Another time he said, "Love is ignorant"-"of the transaction,"
he meant to continue, but the Class wouldn't let him.. May arrived
and we felt just as Dr. Lewis put it one morning, when he said,
"The learned Chancellor who decided this case was a muttonhead
and-there are others." Mr. Squab CSchwabj give me a case of
Hello Myer CHalo v. Mayerj. Foss. Reeve came to grief one day
in Property. Said he in desperation, "Well, suppose he didnit have
a child, but had a daughter!"
Once again We went thru the nightmare of exams., and when
the last was over we shipped as tho from poisoned gas.
Some eighty-six of us were still doggedly hanging on last fall,
tho many conditions had been given out. Having buffaloed the Fac-
ulty to such a complete standstill for two consecutive years, we took
another hitch in our belts and decided it was "up to us." The dust of
ages had settled just a little more deeply on everything in the library.
Denworth and Lucas were appointed the two editors of the Law
Review and the competition for membership on the board was the
Hrst thing of interest. Many were called, but few were chosen. The
old Moss Bound Volumes that used to appear somewhat regularly
began to take on new life.
The Class Room buzz was louder than ever. We settled more
gaming debts, decided more questions of State and transacted more
real business during the Class hours than any other Class that
had ever attended the University. The Faculty, like men of genius,
handed us the palm in this respectg they remonstrated with us, but to
no effect. During the summer Reeve, Hoban, Liggett, Runkle and
the Historian had attended Plattsburg, so the Class did its part
for preparedness. ,
Listen! Apeler and Edelstein bet S10 on the Presidential elec-
tion. Now, matching pennies is no crime, for Sammy Sewall and
Bonsall do that, so it must be all right, and even Chancellor Webb,
"it seems to me." But to bet As yet it has not been paid, causing
much righteous wrath. just see what the election of Mr. Wilson
will do for a man! X
We unanimously called on Webby to make the first recitation
of the year. No one else had the cases. Electives were troubles
which bothered us quite a little and caused no end of grumbling.
Our Class elections rolled around again. This time we held
an orderly meeting and election-but talk about the politics that
went on. The German Secret Service has nothing on us at all. We
elected Bob Owens Presidentg Newman, Vice Presidentg Ed Shmid-
heiser, Secretary, and Eenerty, Treasurer.
The Class discovered that Mr. Bikle called in rotation. Every-
body got to talking about his case. If someone didn't come to Class
it spoiled the system. just this happened to Joe Marinelli. He started
reading a case when Mr. Bikle stopped him. It wasn't the case for
which Mr. Bikle had called. Said he, HI guess you thought Mr.
McCarthy wasn't going to be absent today."
Ned German voted for Wilson and raised a Charley Chaplin
mustache at the same time. Apeler-supposedly the Democratic
Committee-wrote Ned inviting him to parade with a high hat. Ned
borrowed the Kelly and arrived at the appointed place all dressed
up in his hat. It was too small and rested gently on the top of his
head. Harry led him up and down Chestnut Street. Every one
thought he was Charley Chaplin. A couple of girls asked to be
"knocked down" to Mr. Chaplin, but Harry, as his secretary, said
he was tired and didn't care to be interviewed.
Dean Mikell was shutting the windows one day when Bob Lig-
gett burst into the room, and, not recognizing who it was, shouted.
"I-Iey! don't shut the windows." The Dean kept right on. "Well,
leave the top one open, anywayf, said Bob in his most commanding
tone. Then he recognized the Dean. When last seen Bob was
'making 40 up Chestnut Street. -
Mr. Brown assured us on one occasion that twenty-two childrep
were not an impossibility. "But,', he continued, "it's not within my
Two real events happened to our Class during the year. The
first was that Miss Lerner joined us, and the other was that Webby
had an operation for appendicitis, and we all sent him flowers.
We had midvears and weathered them fairly successfully.
Before Carriers Mr. Bikle gave a voluntary hour and the "Chorus"
before the event was "Drink a High Ball."
In connection with the Marriage Laws of Pennsylvania, Mr
'Schnader was discussing "Bigamy," and said the second marriage
was always void. Swotes was acting and looking mystihed. "How
about it, Mr. Swotes?" said Mr. Schnader. "It doesn't take a
lot of gray matter to see that does it ?" "I don't know," said Swotes.
Senator La Fontaine, of Belgium, delivered an interesting
Acourse of lectures and was entertained one evening by the Alumni
Association at a very pleasant and enjoyable smoker, at which he
spoke of the possibilities of a world planned and balanced, as he
proposed, to prevent wars in the future. -
Dr. Lewis furnished us with the best jest of the latter part of
the year when he said, "See the yellow pamphlet in the library, page
'98, both sides," except perhaps when he called on Bob Kinzie, who
promptly got up and, leaning forward as tho to embrace Miss
Lerner, snatched the Corporation book laying open on her desk and
dragged it back to his own, when he prepared calmly, after looking
:at it, to recite. Or perhaps when, after we had copied all he had
said most carefully, he said, "Have you got that all down, gentle-
men? Well, that never was the law today, nor will it be the law
tomorrow in any jurisdiction." Curses!
And now for a serious word. The Class of 1917 Law sprang
'into being as tho by magic. Many of its members have fallen by the
way. For them we sorrow. To those who have endured belong
the fruits of victory. The years that we have worked together at
"The Grind" may prove to be, when we look back some time hence,
.among the happiest, if not the best, of our lives. For the University
which has been for some of us College and for others Graduate
School, but for all of us an Alma Mater, We should cherish the
fondest regard and affection. To the faculty we extend our most
hearty thanks for their kindness, their help and their fellowship.
Some we have come to know better than othersg all we have learned
to respect because of their ability and sound advice. For the friend-
ship We have formed and the associations which will mean so much
to us in after life, We are glad. For the best that has been brought
out in every man, We are thankful. For the future, We hope success.

Zliaffp was a Qinrker
Taffy was a VVelshman,
Taffy was a thief,
Taffy came to my house,
And stole a piece of beef.
Taffy was arrested,
Taffy he was jailed,
Till his friends got busy,
Taffy then was bailed.
Taffy was indicted
By the grand jury,
Witnesses all warned against
Taffy then was brought to trial,
Evidence was ledg
The prosecution confident
That it had Taffy dead.
But Taffy had a lawyer,
Taffy had a crook,
So Taffy swore he wasn't there
Upon the Holy Book.
So Taffy was acquitted,
Taffy was set freeg
And Taffy swore he would be good,
As good as good could be.
But Taffy didn't mean it,
For Taffy really knew
That the chances of his being hanged
Were fewer than a few.
Then Taffy ran for office,
Taffy got a job,
Taffy was the hero
Of the proletariat mob.
Taffy was an alderman,
Taffy had a cinchg
Everything that wasn't tight
Taffy used to pinch.
Taffy ran a gambling house,
The profits were immense,
He made so many dollars
That he threw away the cents
Taffy was a welcher,
Oh! but can it really be
That a man as bad as Taffy
Can be at liberty?
Why, Taffy's now in Congress,
Taffy makes the lawsg
And Taffy knows his business,
For he fills them full of flaws
On the evening of March 8, 1917, some seventy members of the
Class gathered at the Rittenhouse for the First Class banquet. The
very substantial dinner was much enlivened by the vocal efforts of
Messrs. Webb, Owens, Weisman and Layton. Sewall contributed his
quota to the spirit of the evening by ordering champagne for the
Faculty, which the latter very reluctantly but very quickly were per-
suaded to imbibe. That the host had himself quaffed generously be-
came apparent when he rose to explain to the Class a very intricate
problem in the law of real property. Unfortunately, a most lucid ex-
position of a rnooted legal point cannot sully the virgin pages of this
record. The occasional hurried disappearance and somewhat less
hurried reappearance of numerous members of the Class, notably
Turk, Kennett and Lamorelle, threatened to deplete the ranks of
the diners, but when finally chairs were tilted back and cigars lighted'
not a man was missing. '
john C. Bell, jr., of the Banquet Committee, introduced the
toastmaster of the evening, Owen Roberts, whose expansive smile
and delectable poise, not to mention his increasing avoirdupois,
attested the good judgment of the committee. Owen I. forthwith
pointed out that with Owen Roberts as toastmaster and Robert
Owens president QDavid Lloyd George and William Henry Lloydj,
the evening, and pretty much everything else, seemed to be in the
hands of the Welsh. The hrst lugubrious note of an erstwhile hilari-
ous occasion was struck when the toastmaster regretfully announced
the enforced absence of Professor Bohlen, adding that the latter
had been unable to stop the flow for some hours. Announcing a
strict embargo upon the "soft stuff," Mr. Roberts presented Presi-
dent Owens. Owens, whose mellilluous voice is equally attuned to
song or speech, made a stirring plea for class solidarity, whose elo-
quence elicited a warning admonition from the gallery against all
but words of one cylinder. Dean Mikell, the next speaker, who had
evidently been prepared to address the Class in a more serious vein,
shifted his ground under the fire of the toastmaster, and, in addition
to complimenting the Class upon the comparative silence of the occa-
sion. voiced an ominous warning against slackers. Weisman
rendered "Down Where the Swanee River Flows," after Al Jolson,
in real professional stvle, revealing a pellucid delivery that was
enthusiastically applauded. Denworth, between anecdotes, endeav-
ored to convince the Faculty that it was the best Law School Faculty
in the country, but without success. Mr. Bikle expatiated on things
in general, chancing to observe of one member of the Class that
nothing so became him in the classroom like the leaving of it.
The inextinguishable Webb, besides being very much in evi-
dence, in a little talk on "The Class Versatile," demonstrated beyond
the shadow of a reasonable doubt that we were the most wonderful
Law Class in the universe Qby the grace of God, and in the Univer-
sity of Pennsylvania by emendation of Professor Amramj. Unfor-
tunately, however, he refrigerated the warm spot in our hearts 'thus
secured by voicing a very pathetic ballad, entitled "Breweryland."
Mr. Keedy's remarkable expose of Faculty methods in ten cate-
gorical questions and answers was easily the bright particular star
of the evening. This was supplemented by another remarkable and
poetic outburst, "To the Ladies," the ardor of which several less for-
tunate members of the faculty cynically attributed to the fact that
Mr. Keedy is unmarried.
Mr. Loyd recommended trepanning of the skull as a certain
method of passing the finals, and expressed the interest of the
Faculty in the success of the Class. During the last he was merci-
lessly heckled by the toastmaster and the gallery.
Mr. Amram, who was attending a Third Year Class banquet
for the first time, pointed out the irreconcilable conliict between gas-
tronomic activity and after-dinner speaking. He came heroically
to the defense of Turk, whose presence at the Third Year banquet
was a matter of surprise to other Faculty members, and between
Talmudic aphorisms reminded the Class that each student owed
at least one book to the legal profession. Turk did not try to justify
his presence to the Faculty, but confined himself to an explanation
of his prompt arrival. Mr. Schnader, to use his own words, being
a good baby of the Faculty, did little on the floor, but animadverted
touchingly to the late departed Harvey Geiger.
With the singing of "Auld Lang Syne," 1917 disappeared.
Ghz igihhle lam library
"This library was founded in 1886, in memory of George Bid-
dle, and continued in 1891 in memory of Algernon Sydney Biddle,
and in 1897 of Arthur Biddle, the three sons of George VV. Biddle.
They died before their father, having lived as became their high call-
ing of the law. Truth, Courage, Honour, Love and Duty, their
These are the words that face all who enter the central door of
the library. In and out, over the brass plate upon which they are
written pass the men whose work room is the library, and whose
lives are to be dedicated to the "high calling of the law." And as
they pass, whether they are careless of its message or mindful
of its meaning, the plate shines the brighter for their passing feet,
and the brave and beautiful words stand forth the more clearly.
The library thus holds out to the men at their first entrance to it
the inspiration of high ideal, attained by the men for whom it stands
as a memorial, to be attained by those for whom it was founded.
With such a beginning of the institution the authorities control-
ling the Law Department, and the faculty committee which guides
the policy of the library, have at all times felt the necessity of using
the funds entrusted to them with the most conscientious concern
for the upbuilding of a library which should not only be a "good
library, "but which should represent most liberally and widely every
step in the growth of the law. With that thought in mind they have
collected the Coutumes of the European countries, the earliest
sources of the English law, and so on through the growth of the
English Common Law into the modern American law which rep-
resents the latest legal thought of the day. '
As the tablet already mentioned says, the library was begun
in 1886, by a gift from Mr. George W. Biddle, himself a prominent
member of the Bar of Philadelphia, of five thousand volumes which
had formerly been the library of Benjamin F. Brewster, once an
Attorney-General of the United States. This was an excellent col-
lection, comprising the United States reports, the reports of the
states, and the usual English reports, with a few treatises, and old
English folios. Through a wise provision of the founders it was
stipulated that certain funds were to be annually provided by the
Department for the benefit of the library.
The hrst home of the library was in the Girard Building at the
corner of Broad and Chestnut Streets, where the law Department
also had a temporary home. In 1895 the Law Department was
removed to a building in Independence Square, which had recently
been occupied by the criminal courts of the County, and the library
was given the court room for its reading room, while the books
found a resting place around the walls of the room. It was a large,
airy and not inconvenient place, and there was room enough for the
seven or eight thousand books which the library then contained.
The building itself was a rather curious old structure, containing
rooms in unexpected places: among these. and high up under the
eaves of the building, were the rooms where the criminal juries
used to be locked up for the night. The old straw mattresses had
been left behind, and many other pieces of furniture not thought
worthv of removal to the more elaborate surroundings of the new
City Hall. Among these pieces of furniture were the judges, bench,
the tip-staves' chairs and clerk's table of the old tcourt room. These
were all preserved and are now used in the Moot Court Room of
the present Law School building.
In 1896, when VVilliam Draper Lewis was made Dean of the
Law School, funds which had been accumulating were spent upon
the library, as-well as a loan from the trustees, and the library grew
quickly in the following four years so that upon the removal of
the Law Department to the new building in West Philadelphia, the
library had attained an accession number of 20,000 volumes. In
1897, however, shortly after the death of Mr. Arthur Biddle, Mrs.
Biddle, his widow, presented his library to the Law School, which
comprised approximately three thousand volumes, of very excellent
and useful books, very largely reports of the United States, Penn-
sylvania, and treatises. During these four years the collection was
begun of the English colonial law, including statute law and the
reports, and the very small number of treatises was increased many-
fold. Other donations of books were made by the Townsend fam-
ily, Hampton L. Carson, and other members of the Philadelphia
The new building of the Law School gave up its entire second
floor to the purposes of- the library. Two great reading rooms for
undergraduates, each accommodating two hundred students at sep-
arate desksg a smaller and more homelike graduate room, and a
stack room equipped with a "bracket stack" on the first floor and
the old oak bookcase on the second promised room for growth for
the next five years. One of the large reading rooms was named
for the first chief justice of Pennsylvania, Thomas McKean, and
a fine portrait of the judge was donated to the library by Mr. Car-
son. It is an interesting work by Robert Vonnah. The large hall
at the south end of the building is named for judge Sharswood.
reorganizer of the Law Department in 1850. No good portrait of
Judge Sharswood is owned by the library, but a poor picture in oils
is hung in the room named for him. MclVlurtrie Hall, the reading
room for the graduate students, has a fine portrait, by Chase, of
Richard McMurtrie, for whom the room was named.
In the sixteen years that have passed since the library entered
its new home its growth has been steady. The repayment of the
money borrowed from the trustees caused a temporary inability to
make purchases, which was overcome by the raising by Mr. Lewis
of an Alumni fund which amounted to some four thousand dollars.
The librarian was sent to England, and there purchased many of
the English "source books" which are now becoming scarce, and
also added more colonial laws and treatises. This was in 1904. A
gift from the heirs of Richard McMurtrie in 1906 of some thirty-
five hundred volumes which had comprised the library of that dis-
tinguished lawyer, was a valuable addition to the library. Neces-
sarily many of the books were duplicates, but most valuable dupli-
cates and very useful to the students in adding to the number of
reports. ln 1010 the librarian was sent to England aufl the conti-
nentg more valuable books were unearthed from the cellars of "Lin-
coln's lnn Gate" and its neighborhood.
One of the interesting foreign law books thus secured is a copy
of one of the very curious old books of the continental law known
as the "baschsenspiegel" and printed in Leipsig in 1582. lt is in a
very odd binding, and written in Old German, with glosses in Latin.
The oldest book in the library is the Abridgrnent of the- Com-
mon Law by Nicholas Statham. It was printed for Pyson, one of
the earliest of the English printers, either in London or Rouen, it
is not known which, and is in a very beautiful imitation of the manu-
script hand of an earlier period. This book remained untranslated
until in 1915 the book was translated by the librarian of the Biddle
Gther very old books are a copy of the Vieux Natura Brevium,
printed in 1534, the Antiquity of Courts, 15343 Antiqua Statuta,
I5I4, Lyndewood's "Provinciale," a very early printed book on
Ecclesiastical Law, without date, but circa 1500, and in the original
old boards, now much broken, and bearing only portions of the skin
covering. There are many others of the same order, SOITIC of the
smallest size known to the printer, others great folios, like Fitz-
herbert's Abridgement. These books are none of them mere curiosi-
ties or legal lumber, they are all books that form the foundation of
the knowledge of the law, and are of the greatest practical value to
the student who must get back to the beginnings of the law if he is
to know the significance of its endings.
Physically the library is really very beautiful, the great reading
rooms with their nobly arched ceilings and fine proportions and the
smaller reading room with its pleasing color and oaken shelves are
dignified and restful. The stack room was remodeled in 1914, and
now has a modern steel stack of two stories, over one-half its space,
while the other half still has its old bracket stack with the super-
imposed old oak cases for the second tier.
Wliile the library is what is called a closed stack library, the
students have access to- the shelves while working on moot court
cases, and for special work of other kinds, while the men who by
their standing in their course work have won the honor of being on
the editorial staff of the University of Pennsylvangia Law Review
and Law Register, are assigned desks in the graduate room, and
thus come into close touch with the old English books there housed,
and also with the contents of the stack room, where the larger num-
ber of the books are housed.
The library has now an accession list of nearly 6o,ooo volumes,
and as it is a comparatively young library, there is very little of
what is known as "dead wood" on its shelves. It has been built up
with a definite policy that it should be a library which offers to the
undergraduate all that he could need in his work, to the graduate
student all that he could ask for the thesis of the treatise that he
might be creating, for the research worker as great resources as
might be gathered together for his assistance. The resources of
the library are not large for such a workg it has to be restricted
here and there, but the policy is never forgotten, and the effort is
The high thought, the garnered activities, the crystallized enthu-
siasm of generations of 'great minds have here been gathered to-
gether, so that the men who are to follow the same great profes-
sion in which they were leaders may indeed be inspired to make
"Truth, Courage, Honour, Love and Duty their guide."
Law School Rotunda
Zin 332 Qhffice
The other day as I strolled into the office-ostensibly to look
at the Docket, but really, like everyone else-to commune with the
little blonde, my prospects for a usoulfuli' visit were interrupted by
the brisk passage through the door of a dapper looking gentleman
in a frock coat. He seemed much preoccupied-so much so, in fact,
that his big bone glasses were curiously out of place upon the fore-
head instead of in front of the optics, and the little green bag which
he carried banged loudly against the desk.
Dr. Lewis at once began, "Mrs, Sneezer, haven't I a class in
First Year Corporations tomorrow at four o'clock? I know I put
the Trust Hour ahead to that time, but I must call both off. Some
very prominent gentleman from Patagonia wants to meet the other
Governor of Pennsylvania and myself at Harrisburg tomorrow at
four--to arrange for the passage of the "Uniform Act for the
Abolishing of Yellow Pamphlets," which is up for passage in the
New Zealand Legislature, last week. D'you see? So, of course it
is quite obvious that I can't teach Equity tomorrow at four."
I heard all this, gentle reader-and in my meditations as to
the working of great minds, I forgot even the little blonde. I de-
termined to peruse the Docket more vigorously than ever-the
Docket being nearer to Bessie's room than was the place where I
was standing. Poor "Mrs, Sneezern was looking over the schedule,
and said, "Well, Dr. Lewis, the change in your Associations III
hour is the fourth change this week."
"Impossible, my good lady," said the Doctor. "The hour comes
only twice a week, so how could I change it four times? and the
students"-he meant us here, fellows-"won't object. They never
do-they never have a chance to-and besides those New Zea-
landers must have the benefit of my act. Don't you see ?"
Mrs. Sneezer did not see. but. being a "good lady," said, "To
what hour shall I charge it then, Doctor ?"
"Chl what hours have you ?" said the Doctor, still very much
preoccupied. He seemed to have spied the goodlooking blonde too
by this time, and, rushing over to her, said, "Here, Miss Hershage,
will you please take this: 'Dr. Lewis will be unable to meet the
Class in First Year Trusts tomorrow afternoon at three o'clock,
but if his machine doesn't break down, he will meet it at three
o'clock yesterday afternoon instead, if he can get Mr. Loyd to
change with him.' " And, much satisfied, the Doctor breezed out.
The Docket didn't look good to me any more, and I tottered
out into the hall into the waiting arms of stalwart Sammy "See-
Wall,l' who held me up until I recovered. "Sam, old boyf' said I,
"do you take Associations P"
f'Yes, worse luck," said he, "perfectly beastly course."
f'Well, you and I must tomorrow afternoon at four o'clock
take the Associations' hour yesterday at three o'clock." By that
time I was so completely quashed that words failed me. Sam ac-
quired a worse limp than was otherwise necessary and went off
quite speechless. .
I awoke the next morning with a more severe headache than
I had retired with the night before, and tried to remember that I
was due at class the day before yesterday at four o'clock today. I
got to school somehow, and in the corridor our otherwise quiet and
usually unperturbed Mr, Loyd was pacing around like a lion. Dr.
Lewis was retreating hastily, and Mr. Loyd was saying, 'fDon't
change my hour without notifying me, again. I don't give a hang
for the New Zealanders or anybody else." just then "Me Lord"
came up an cheerily slapping Mr. Loyd abaft the dorsal fin said,
"I-Iello Billy, what in the world's the matter now P" I don't know
what "Billy" said but "Me Lord" agreed with him energetically. I
was very glad that Yeornan Lerner was not on deck.
So I went to class. Dr. Lewis was there, smiling as usual. With
a terrible bang on the desk with his hand, he announced as fol-
lows: "Owing to a perfectly absurd error of the typist, a rather
complicated notice of my hour tomorrow was put up. I hnd it con-
venient to be in Irlarrisburg tomorrow, and I can't meet you until
next week, the time to be hxed later. If Mr. Lamorelle Qaccent on
the LamU or Mr. Owen will see me at my convenience, Ilve no doubt
that an hour convenient to me can be arranged. I'm sorry to put
you and the faculty out this way, but what are you going to do
"Mr, Squab, give us I-Iello Mayer."
Broadly speaking, it might be said that this third year course
without examination is a necessary evil. Certainly it is necessary,
because no "bull pup" lawyer should venture forth into professional
life with only the ordinary layman's sense of morality, he must be
especially equipped to assume the duties of servant of the courts
of justice, he must know how much to charge his client, and how
little to do for him. The course is an evil because it requires the em-
bryonic practitioner to devote one hour a week of his extremely
valuable time to a lecture of doubtful soporiiic quality and without
enjoying that rare and soothing pastime of taking notes. True, it
is that there have been attempts at this, but alas, always of no avail.
Rumor has it that in the early days one ill-starred fellow was seen
writing "surruptiously" in a far corner of the room, and, of course,
it was hinted that so-and-so was taking notes. There are two pos-
sible explanations for this. It is suggested, first, that the erring stu-
dent labored under the delusion that he was attending a course in
Criminal! Procedure, secondly, that he was writing sweet nothings
to some one, perhaps a classmate. Whatever the substance of fact
involved it is sufficient for our purposes to observe at this point that
this ill-advised student has never been able to live down his unfor-
tunate reputationg his valiant efforts in the face of common sense
and public opinion were all in vain, and no once since his benighted
day has challenged the well established traditiong no one has been
known even to think of taking notes. It may be here inserted
that the few white blurs dimly visible about the dingy room when
the light is exceptionally good are not open note books, but copies
of the latest war extra or the Saturday Evening Post. These lit-
erary classics do not venture out into the twilight gloom until the
last of the melancholy line of drooping students has slunk into class
and begun that futile task of trying to adapt his body to the posi-
tion required by comfort, the posture least painful in the juxtapo-
sition of human form to inhumane chairs. Even then it is only after
the buzz of greeting and gossip exchange has passed around and
the tender, propitiatory, introductory remarks have been duly of-
fered that the dull monotony of the lecture is in full swing. Soon
afterwards the minute hand of the well-watched clock climbs up-
ward and we think of food, not for thought.
At Hrst blush it would seem that itis highly improper to require
the third year student to take a course of lectures on a subject for
which he was presumably Cwe hope for the bestj trained in the
nursery or the Sunday school. "Personary'l we feel that such extra
ethics as are peculiar to the lawyers' code could be incorporated
"pari pazoo" in the other courses, where they would be the more
readily noted and the better understood. "Unquechnably" there
could be a great saving of time and trouser seats if a small printed
book were substituted as required reading. However, to anticipate
just a bit, it might be said that the student is fond of his hot and
heavy air, lungicularly speaking, to be sure. After a two years'
diet of dust and obnoxious ozone he craves the delights of existence
in our own Black Hole of Calcutta. Far be it from us to question
the dictates of the higher beings who rule Mt. Olympus, we can-
not think or act for ourselves, we have but to do or die, or both,
and in that connection let us just add that while ordnance of a big-
ger caliber attracts our attention in these days, still the canons of
the board of censors Cnot the "movies"j give some of us much to
think about in connection with our future.
With these few random cursory remarks we will pass on to
a discussion of another interesting part of the law of contingent-
that is, to another matter which we will just ru-un over in a sume
mary manner. As a general proposition, despite the fact that one
hates to learn something about which he knows very little, still
the course in legal ethics is quite popular. In fact, every one takes
it, as well as he can. Everyone attends "reglally" in the fall because
he feels he is getting away with a lot of heavy legal work if he
hangs around law school, and incidentally he feels histchances are
apt to be good for passing Third Year Property. In the winter the
cold drives those not content with the fragrance of the cabbage and
onions basement or the soot of the library rooms into the smelly
little superheated and underaired hole known as No. 3. By spring
the fetid odors of the class room become so argumentative and per-
suasively offensive that a few of the less docile and unasphyxiated
students rebel against the misrule of the register huggers and insist
on keeping the doors open fora few brief moments. Presently it
occurs to some one whose memory does not run to the contrary that
there are a few windows in the room that might be opened, if even
for an inlinitesimally short time. By the use of great tact and
mechanical ability they are able to pry open a window before the
crowd assembles. Wlietlier the consciousness of the influx of new
air, uncontaminated save by the sweet delectable odors emanating
from reduction plants and glue factories of residential West Phila-
delphia, is too much for the hothouse hibernates or whether it is
the sudden realization that there is something out there beyond
those impassable windows that is new and strange, at any rate the
the class is startled and it protests against the iniquity of open
windows. And so it is May before the free air of the heavens can
be inhaled and the light of day once more seen in No. 3.
Indeed, throughout the long, cold winter it is impossible for
the keenest eyesight to see through the beclouded rectangles, and
even th most powerful imagination cannot pictur what lies beyond
the impenetrable barrier. A law school tradition says that at one
time Sansom Street and its pleasant environs were quite visible
from our building. This fanciful tradition may have had its in-
ception at that historic time when the nonagenarian whom we see
collecting cigarette butts in the alley was a small boy, for he is said
to be the daring culprit who hurled a pebble through one of the
smudgy panes, thinking our beloved structure was a prison. The
records of the school show that a few quick observant students man-
aged to peer out into the unknown before the lithe and agile janitor,
aided and abetted by sons of the aged students Qveterans of many
exams.j, managed to stem the tide of inrushing air. To do this it
was necessary to use some highly valued pre-Revolutionary news-
papers which had seen years of service as water-cooler cleaners.
While all these anecdotes are substantially true, still for our pur-
poses here the facts don't much matter. The main principle in-
volved. is that the windows were never fully recognized as such
until the spring of 1917, when they were actually cleaned, one can-
not say washed, because more than that was necessary. They were
quarried. The due process was gradual and during the excavations
we found quite interesting the archeological study incident to our
inspection of the various strata of accumulated filth inside and out.
Faces, figures and initials from the glorious past of our old school
lay revealed to the irreverent eye of the present day student. The
only objection to the new regime was the great expense incident
to the purchase of smoked glasses, the glare even on a cloudy day
Wlien one forgets to loo-k at the clock and gazes out into the
glorious beyond, visible now through those historic panes, one falls
to thinking about the approaching exams. which come as ever to
ruin one's '4May Day pleasures in the spring." Then one becomes
thankful after all that there is such a thing as a course without ex-
amination. It is comforting to think that one has cheated the
authorities into giving credit for no work. One is even tempted to
surrender his deposit to the Bursar.
Zlnterzqtlass Ease 335111 Games
Before any martial spirit filled the air the second and third year
men gave vent to their surplus energy by playing their annual base-
ball game. That day is the one day when things legal are abso-
lutely banished into the limbo of forgotten things. But this year the
third year men, who always have an air of arrogance, had especial
grounds for jubilation in that Wallace, a Varsity pitcher, was to be
on the mound for the Seniors. The shoots he served up were much
to the liking of the second year men, and the way they hammered
him would do credit to seasoned veterans.
Une feature of the game was the cheering of Meyer Zeff, who,
wildly waving his arms and working himself up to a frenzy of en-
thusiasm, led the ,I7 men in a rhythmic cadence of pratracted cheers,
interrupted by Harold Saylorls loud yells for the manager, who,
poor fellow, had a thankless job. When he unceremoniously
brought Rudy Hirschwald in from right held, said Rudy having
performed up to that stage of the game in a iiawless manner, he
was laid open to the charge of discrimination. At that stage some-
body should have rushed Ben Kline on the scene to see whether
or not there could be cause for complaint on the part of the party
who was shipped from the team. But Bikle was of the opinion
that the maxim "de 7I'lfIlZi17Zf-fp applied, and that the loss of two in-
nings' glory was not cognizable in the Court of University County..
Eight to four told the tale, and the boys certainly handled
themselves like Connie Mack's Yanigans.
At this time we wish to expressly overrule some loose dictum
that appeared in the 1916 Record. With all due apologies to their
Editor, we cannot help but call attention to this sentence, Mfhe
adverse judgment of eight to four does not truly represent the
ability of the third year class, but the dictume must be read in
connection with the subject matter of the case, i. e., baseball. At
this juncture pay special attention to the videliccf, note for the
Wlien one considers that nine bases were stolen by the 1917
team, that the only two extra base hits were made b-y Freedley and
Schwab, that Weisinan, our dependable southpaw, had the '16 men
pushing the willow wand through the air, either to strike out or
rly to short, that Bourquin, after he got warmed up to his task,
dismissed the side in a masterful manner, the conclusion is pre-
sented with compelling force that the ,I7 class have a paramount
The fact that Dean Mikell and Professor Bohlen umpired
shows that the law school professors have much in common with
their pupils, and as at the Club and Class banquets enter whole-
heartedly into the spirit of the occasion. Howard McCall, our
worthy captain, was a real lighter, and we regret that he is not with
us this year, but we feel sure that Dave German will take ZeH's
place on the cheering line Capologies to Robert W. Chambersj. The
three twins, Greeley, Shmidheiser and Egan, all got into the game,
and from their kittenish behavior it was easy to tell that they were
but reaping the fruits of their consistent training.
The baseball game may be a trifle in comparison with such im-
portant things as writing notes for the University of Pennsylvania
Law Review, but as even the case editor will tell you, one can
not work quite all the time, and so this tiresome recital closes with
a plea for the continuance of this game as a deep rooted custom
in the annals of the Law School.
Having entered into the third year we successfully defended
our title as champions against an alleged all-star team of the then
second year class as the figures below show.

The club has striven to promote fellowship among its mem-

work. It is hoped that this policy will bear fruit, not only in the
Way of results in legal training, but in the formation of friendships
that will endure in after years.

prominent members of the Barg but the desirability of fostering a
social and friendly spirit among the men who are going to spend
their lives closely connected in the practice of their profession is
constantly kept in mind. The connection between the student mem-
bers and active practitioners is kept alive by the annual banquets,
and also by the frequent talks of the graduate members of the Bar
at the room of the club in the Law School.

The Law Review Staff
ihr Iain Zivuimu
The first number of the University of Pennsylvania Law Re-
view appeared in November, 1852. lt thus had its beginning at a
time when legal journals were by no means numerous, and ranks
among the oldest of American legal publications. For several years
it was published by D. B. Canfield 81 Co., publishers, as a monthly
magazine, and while considerable effort was devoted by the early
editors to placing before the members of the Bar important articles
by leading members of the profession, its chief mission, perhaps,
was the publication of abstracts of current decisions as they
Between 1880 and 1890 the introduction of the system of
uadvance reports" performing a similar service rendered the pub-
lication of such a magazine less profitable, and in 1891 the magazine
was transferred to the University of Pennsylvania Press, a com-
pany organized primarily to print publications of the University.
At this time, and since the date of its origin in 1852, the publica-
tion appeared under the name The A77'Z87'fCU11 Law Register. A
year later, the University Press having ceased to exist. the maga-
zine was vested in a trustee and continued under the editorial
management of VVilliam Draper Lewis, Esq., George Whartoii
Pepper, Esq., and Williaiia S. Ellis, Esq. The policy of the maga-
zine was altered to meet the needs of the profession and more
attention was given to the publication of legal articles by writers
In 1895 the editorial management was given over to a board
of students elected from those of the second and third year classes
of the Law School of high scholastic standing, and since that time
the management has continued unchanged. In 1897 the trustees
assigned the copyright of the magazine to the University of Penn-
sylvania, and in 1908, that the publication might be identified more
closely with the Law School, the name was changed to Uizizfersiry
Of Pe1'z11syI7Janria Law Review and A171,87'iCG'1Z Law Regfister.
It has been the constant aim and purpose of the La-'zu Review
to be of service both to the practitioner and to the student. A typi-
cal issue contains three or four leading articles of authority by
prominent members of the profession, both practitioners and teach-
ersg several "Notes" or short discussions upon recent decisions of
importance, prepared by members of the boardg a department for
"Recent Cases" in which recent decisions are digested and anno-
tated, likewise prepared by members of the board, and a depart-
ment of book reviews.
The members of the board are chosen under a competitive
system, and to those selected the work affords experience in the
work of annotation and in the marshaling and effective use of
masses of material which is perhaps not so extensively obtained.
in any other branch of Work at the Law School.
In conclusion it should be mentioned that the Law Review'
has, during the past year, experienced one of the most prosperous-
periods of its existence. Its circulation has been broadened to a
considerable extent and a new interest seems to have been taken.
by the members of the profession and a new appreciation of its
value as an aid to the practitioner.

"To foster a spirit of careful study and to mark in a fitting
manner those who have attained a high grade of scholarship" the
Order of the Coif was organized in a number of law schools of
the United States. In furtherance of this end on May 16, 1912,
the National Secretary of the Order of the Coif authorized four
,members of the Class of 1912, to organize formally a chapter of
that society in the University of Pennsylvania Law School.
The order of the Coif is a name derived from the old English
'f'Order of the Coif" which was composed of the Sergeants-at-law.
On attaining the degree of the coif, or becoming a sergeant, a
barrister would retire from the Inn of Court by which he was called
'to the Bar, and then become a member of Sergeants' Inn. I-Ie
would then wear his coif-a close-fitting cap of white lawn or silk
a--either as a distinguishing mark of his profession, or as Brand,
in his "Popular Antiquities" puts it, to bring luck. In either event,
.at the end of the seventeenth century when wigs becamethe fashion,
a round space was left on the top of the wig for the. display of
the coif, which was afterwards covered by a small patch of black
.silk edged with white.
Fashion is ever changing, and today tlig distinguishing sign of
'the order in this country is nothing more than a watch key, similar
in general shape to the Phi Beta Kappa key, but with the corners
clipped, bearing upon its face a head, showing the wig with the
symbolic coif of the past ages.
The following members of the Class of 1917 have been elected
