Our College Social Events
Campus gossip is whirling these days
with  elections, transatlantic  damsels,
prize fighters and touchdowns, but stand-
ing out above all is that topic, Our Col-
lege Social Events 
Take in any campus you may at this
time of year and the talk always centers
around the social life, so naturally enough
D. C. L's campus takes its place with
From a glance at the program drawn
up for this semester, the average student
will find that his spare time will be spent
in a social way, first mixing with his class
mates to meet the Profs. and students in
general and then later the girl friend
will hold sway.
As yet, no dates have been definitely
set. However, it is always the custom to
first turn to the frosh and impress on
their minds that there are other human
beings attending school besides fresh-
men. And it has also been a tradition
at D. C. L. to bring out this subservient
idea in a friendly manner.
As has been said, the Freshman mixer
is first on the program. This is sponsored
i'y the Senior class and taken advantage
f by the Sophs. The mixer always turns
out a success. To begin with,.the Frosh
are bound by all the powers that.-be to
put in an appearance; the Sophs turn out
en masse because it's their opportunity cf
getting even; Juniors and Seniors hav-
ing more or less settled down, come out
of curiosity. This affair should not be
passed up by the Freshman. It presents
an opportunity at the outset of college life
to meet boys you will be associated with
possibly the remainder of your life. Our
advice is: Watch for the date and be
sure and come.
By this time, Fraternities have planned
their annual fall frolics. These will be so
arranged as to not interfere. Hallowe'en
provides a splendid background for these
About the end of November the annual
D. C. L. reunion will be held. This is
considered from the standpoint of the
officials to be the most important event

Welcome, Freshmen, Welcome
To the majority of Freshmen this will
be the first time you have seen your
school paper THE BRIEF CASE.
Published by the students for the stu-
dents of the Detroit College of Law.
We extend to you our heartiest welcome
in the work which you have just com-
menced; warn you that it is hard and
serious; but promise you the reward is
measured by the sacrifice.

Senior President

Ave Atque Vale!
The Class of 1928 has made history in
the Detroit College of Law. Early in our
career we demonstrated that we were a
class which wanted to do things-and did
them. We point with pride to the fact
that out of the four chief functions of the
year, the Reunion and the J-Hop were
inaugurated by us.
Nor has the class ever wanted for able
leadership. In the Freshman year we
organized with Julian G. McIntosh as the
executive of the Evening Section, and
John Lemke of the Afternoon Section.
These men were succeeded by Harold J.
Watt and Ted Schubel as presidents dur-
ing the Sophomore year.
The class of 1928 initiated the D. C. L.
Reunion in 1925, under the leadership of
Lew W. Levinson. He has to his credit
some of the greatest of all college parties.
We have found that we can leave it to
Lew and feel assured that we will have
a real party.
In February, 1925, a class entered which
chose A. B. Baldwin as its president; this
group has added a great deal to our
accomplishments and to them we are in-
debted for D. C. L.'s first class paper, the
Soph Sketch, edited by Robert F.
DuChane and Roy Scott. Each of them
has since been honored by election to the

New Home For D. C. L.
Projected and Plans Are'
Already Under Way
The College of Law is to have new
quarters according to the intention of
the Trustees who have appointed a com-
mittee to consider new and suitable hous-
ing commensurate with the needs of the
school.  The committee members are:
Chester M. Culver, chairman; John Bry-
ant. C. C. Green, Dr. F. 0. Clements,
Paul King, C. M. Harmon, Harvey Wal-
lace and Dr. A. G. Studer.
Mr. Culver referred to Dr. Studer for
further information, and the latter was
somewhat reticent, stating that the mat-
ter was not definite enough for publica-
tion yet. He did state though that the
committee has requested   Dean   Wm.
Krichbaum. and Director of Education
T. Paul Hickey to draft plans showing
the needs .of the college. These plans
are intended to show the number of class
rooms, assembly rooms. locker rooms, of-
fices: and floor space and seating ar-
rangement in each. Such plans would
probably indicate the lobby. reception
room, library, halls, the number of floors
necessary, in general the space distrib-
ution required in a modern collegiate
It has been learned from an authorita-
tive source that the most modern equip-
ment is to be installed and that the loca-
tion will continue in the central down-
town section of Detroit.
This is great news and we are all happy
to know that the Detroit College of Law
is to have fine new quarters exclusively
for those studying law. We can only say
speed those plans, and don't forget to
provide an office for the staff of the Brief
Case in the plans for the new building.
The Bar Exam
On Setpember 6th, 1927, nearly three
hundred students gathered at the Mich-
igan State College to take the State Bar
Examination. Some were hopeful, some
despondent, all nervous. Four years had
been spent in preparation for this momen.-
tous event, and it is small wonder that
pulses were racing. However, as I have
been told to merely outline the procedure
of the examination I will confine myself
to the subject.
As a condition precedent to taking the
examination, each applicant must con-
form to the rules of the State Board of
Law Examiners. These rules are pub-
lished in pamphlet form and may be ob-
tained at any time from the Clerk of the
Supreme Court. The forms, as supplied
by the Board, must be filed within thirty
