will speak at 11 a. m. Friday, April

University Convocation, it was an-
nounced yesterday by Dean Henry
M. Bates of the Law School. Mr.

Another address, "The Public Pro-
fession of the Law," will be delivered
by Mr. Seabury at the Founders Day
Banquet to be held at 7 p. m. the
same day in the Lawyers Club, Dean
Bates said. A third attraction of the
day will be the finals in the Law

the Henry M. Campbell Award, to
be held at 2 p. m. in Hill Auditorium.
The several members of the Supreme
Court of Michigan have been invited
to attend the finals and decide the
outcome, Dean Bates added.
Practiced Law In New York
Long known as one of the most
distinguished members of the Ameri-
can bar, Mr. Seabury has, in the
estimation of Dean Bates, "rendered
what is probably the greatest serv-
ice of this generation to the cause
of good municipal government."
Mr. Seabury practiced law in New
York until elected justice of the City
Court in 1901. He became justice of
the New York Supreme Court in
'1907 for the term 1907-1920, but re-
signed in 1914 to be elected associate
judge of the Court of Appeals. He
was Democratic candidate for the
governorship of New York in 1916,
but since then has devoted the bulk
of his time to private practice.

NEW YORK, April 6.-(/P)-It was
"New Beer's Eve" tonight for more
than half the population of the
United States.

map, and in the District of Columbia
-with a combined population of
about 70,000,000-the moment after

Admonition Sounded
The admonition came from offi-,
cials, from organizations, and from
the brewers themselves.
In every one of the 19 states it was
a day and night of feverish activity
for many. Brewery forces were
working at top speed, and from all
sections came reports that they
would be unable to supply the im-
mediate demand.
Licensing clerks here and in many
other cities found long lines at their
windows when they came to work-
and they grew in length throughout
the day.
Trucks and freight cars were lined
up in brewery yards, waiting the sig-
nal that would start them off with
their liquid cargoes.
