Prominent Jurist Declares Law
Profession Is Open To Women,


There is an excellent field for wom-
en in some specialized divisions of
the legal profession, Mrs. Alice Al-
exander, director of the Corporation
and Securities Commission at Lan-
sing, said yesterday in an interview
after her address to the Ann Arbor
Alumnae Club.
"However, women setting up a gen-
eral practice, or going into criminal
law," she said, "are at a disadvantage,
not because they are less intelligent
than men, but because the situations
they must encounter are often dif-
ficult for a woman to handle."
Mrs. Alexander has attained an al-
most unprecedented goal, being the
second woman in the United States
to plead a case before the Supreme
I Court. She is recognized as one of
the most prominent women lawyers
in the country, although she never
attended law school.
Admitted To Bar In '28
In 1913 she became the first and
only woman secretary of the old cap-
'World Cruise
To Be Theme
Of Annual Ball
A world cruise is to be the theme of
thetannual Architects' Ball, which i
to take place Friday, May 8, in Bar-
bour Gymnasium, according to Rob-
ert Morris, '36, general chairman of
the dance. The winner of the theme
Scontest is Marcella Orr, '36, who will
receive a complimentary ticket to the
affair. Lillian Scott, also '36, was
awarded honorable mention for her
The balcony of the gymnasium is
s to be used as the railing of the ship,
and life preservers are going to be
thrown over the balcony in order to
make it have as much the appearance
of an actual liner as possible. Under-
neath the railing there will be false
portholes, behind which scenes from
the various countries to be visited on
the cruise, will be painted. Various
types of banners and signal flags are
to be strung overhead in order to
hide the ceiling of the gym. Smoke-
l stacks and ventilators will make the
band platform very realistic.
Costumes for the Architects' Ball
are optional, according to Morris,
r and although more than half of
r those who do attend usually do wear
fancy dress, it is not required as
many have thought in previous years.
s A poster contest is now in progress,
and will be judged by various profes-
sors in the architecture school. The
winner of this contest will likewise be
awarded a complimentary ticket to

italized securities commission, and '
later became the first woman chief a
of that division. "My work made it I
necessary for me to learn a great g
deal of law, because I was dealing -
constantly with lawyers," she said.
As a result she studied law by her-
self, and was admitted to the Michi-
gan bar in 1928. Since her admis-
sion to the bar, Mrs. Alexander has
handled all the state's corporation
Mrs. Alexander first appeared be-
fore the Supreme Court in 1932,
when she pleaded the case of the
State of Michigan vs. the Detroit In-
ternational Bridge Co. The Bridge
Company had claimed that it should
be exempt from certain taxes be-
cause it was engaged in foreign com-
merce, while Mrs. Alexander ,as at-
torney for the state, maintained that
the mere collection of tolls for the
use of the bridge did not constitute
Pleads Before Supreme Court
"It was the greatest moment of
my life," she said with quiet dignity
and self-assurance, "when Istepped
before Chief Justice Hughes with
my sponsor, General Ansell, and was
told that I was admitted to plead be-
fore the Court."
In commenting on the court, Mrs.
Alexander said that "it is the might-
iet and most majestic court in the
world." "However, the kindly and
disarming smile of Chief Justice
Hughes counteracts the aloof and
awe-inspiring atmosphere of the
I court," she continued, "and enables
the lawyers to feel at ease, so that
they may do their best."
