Would you like to listen, spell- bound, While you watch a man draw rings ? Then just take this invitation That you turn your steps our way, And direct them to the Law School, - 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- velt's- Doctor Lewis is his name. You must pay most strict atten- tion To the things he has to say, Or you WO11,t know how to an- swer What he wants, in just his way. For he'll tell you of his Dexter, He's a most amazing horse, Who is sometimes worth a for- tune From his speed upon the course. And perhaps he'll mention Beppo, VVho's the best known of his dogs g Or mayhap he'll speak of An- tome, 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- sembly ' Will adopt and make the law: just at present We've been strug- gling With the worst you ever saw. Introduce now, his Aunt Betsy, She's his wealthy, good, old auntg Ev'ry week or so she leaves him Rich as Croesusg but he can't Like a spendthrift use the money, For it is a sacred trust, For Clarissa, his pet mammal- When he knew it, how he cussed. 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 man Is presumed to know the law." For the Dean will surely catch you If you try to work the bluff That you have the case all ready, And you soon will cry, "Enough" If you want some real good pointers How to make a "coffin-nail," See the Dean-he rolls 'em quickly, And has ne'er been known to fail. Then we have for your inspec- tion, Francis Bohlen, dubbed "Me Lordnz Has a wondrous flow of lan- guage- Runs the Compensation Board. He can talk more loud and clearly ' Than the best prof in the land, And can use such faultless Eng- lish 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 out," 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 our mirth we never screen. Even tho' as skillful lawyers We appear at Practice Court, We are ready with our laughter VVhen some classmate gives us sport. But perhaps you're in some trouble, Want a case you cannot find: Billy Loyd is always ready With advice both sound and kind. l And you never need to falter In the fear that you will bore, For his office is an instance , Of the always "Open Doorf' There is also Mr. Keedv. He's the God of Bills and Notesg As a subject for Cremation I-Ie'd have scored a lot of votes. But at last we know him better Since our banquet Qwhich we boastj, When he answered to "The Ladies" With a most inspiring toast. And the mention of the Ban- quet, Owen Roberts brings to mind, How he bossed the whole as- semblage . With a wit, now sharp, now kind. We will ne'er forget his watch- word, CI-low it echoes and it ringsj. "Will you PLEASE have much LESS order? Robert Owens, next will sing." And those long two hours on Thursdays, VVhen we learned of gifts and wills, Towards the ending of the ses- sion :Twas like taking bitter pills. For the spring was in the class- room, And our minds were oft afield, Yet he held us all attentiveg Laws of Property, unsealed. There's a course called Legal Ethics, Teaches much we need to know, And itls really quite instructive, Only most of us donlt go. Brown can take the hardest question, H And with patience slow but sure, Clarify its hardest sentence, And a meaning plain secure. And, indeed, if you write short- hand, Copy down each word and phrase, You won't have to read a text- book, And need never do a case. If you like to read long cases And can stand late evening hours, You should calculate your chances, Also husband up your powers. And prepare Supreme Court cases Which the Constitution teach: Bikle likewise shows how Car- riers May be brought within the reach Of the courts, by proper pro- cess, Plus sure knowledge of the law, For if you forget the statutes Youlll be fooling with a saw. There are some you've not in- spected Cn this tour around the halls, But perhaps you'll make another And return within these walls. But as hosts you'll have some others, For the Class of Seventeen Will depart from out these por- tals, For our work all Ht and keen. Yet we still will have a fondness For the days of classroom work, And the Faculty who taught us Knotty points to never shirkg That we ne'er should leave a problem Once we've taken up the grindg And that tho' we oft are weary, The reward we'll sometime hnd. And at last We make our entry In the world of "working" men, Wliile we make our heartfelt farewells To the days at dear Old Penn. :Qc ---- 000 The ifaisturp nf the liam btbnnl - 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- son. 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 Miller. On july 2, 1852 the first public commencement of the school was held when degrees were conferred in law. At this time the 37 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 38 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 39 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 year. 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. W .

MORTON WITKIN. 329 N, 7th si., Philadelphia, Pa. AEP Born, Philadelphia, Pa., May 1, 18945 Central High Schoolg University of Pennsylvaniag Varsity Debating Team. 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 Pittsburgh P" 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 stop teaching. 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. 86 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 F T. 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 boomed. 87 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." 88 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 remained closed. 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. 89 "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 - 90 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. 91 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 'personal experience." 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 92 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. 93 CLASS OF I9 I 7 CARLETON B. WEBB, T1'6GJ1L7'CV lawn nf 1917 First Year Class 1914-1915 GEORGE P. WILLIAMS, Presz'den.t F.-NTLTCN L. LIARZETT, 17100-Pre ALBERT L.

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 101 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. 4 I 102 x l 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 guides." 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, 103 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 104 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 Bar. . 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. 105 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 Law Library. 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 ' 106 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 never relaxed. 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 HB7 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 108 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 about it. "Mr, Squab, give us I-Iello Mayer." 109 legal QEtbit5 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 llO 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. 111 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 was considerable. 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. 112 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 State Boards. 113 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 title. ' 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.

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 appeared. . 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 of authority. 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. 147 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.

Newman 148 Ebac Qhrher uf the Qlluif "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 10 membership: Raymond K. Denworth Edwin A. Lucas VVm. Poster Reeve, gd Barnie Wfinkelinan 149 R I AX- P . VD +R- F ' 5 .
