predicted that the League would face
an extremnely difficult situation owing
to the absence of any decision re-

ing year.
Hall agreed with what he termed
"that instinct of the man-in-the-
street which regards the prevention
of war as the fundamental purpose
of the League and sll other aspects,
as entirely subsidiary." In a situa-
tion where a government cannot
maintain order, he noted, its other
functions have little meaning. "And
this is as much true of the League,
which represents the primitive be-

is of any national state," he con-

Michigan Law Review Honors
. Dean Bates In November Issue

Associate Su e e Court
Justice Stone Writes,
For LegalMagazine
The November issue of the Michi-
gan Law Review which came off the
press last Tuesday is dedicated to
ex-Dean Henry M. Bates of the law'
In this issue are three articles con-
cerning Dean Bates: one by the Hon.
Harlan F. Stone, Associate Justice
of the United States Supreme Court;
a history of the Law School cover-
ing the years Dean Bates was in
office, by Professor Emeritus Edwin
C. Goddard, of the Law School; and
a more general article by Dean,
Emeritus Roscoe Pound, of Har-
Retired Last June
Dean Bates retired last June under
the University retirement ruling and
was succeeded by Prof. E. Blythe
Stason. According to Justice Stone,
Dean Bates began his university
career at a time when the Michigan
Law School,.like those of other lead-
ing American universities, was in
the historic stage of transition from,
the performance of its traditional
function as a vocational training
school to that of a more intensive
investigation and study of law as a,
branch of the social sciences, by
methods and with objectives which
were to make a more appropriate
subject of university study.
Professor Goddard says that Dean,
Bates' attitude toward this transi-

The pictures, taken by Mr. Line

Europe's foremost trouble spots to-
day. With the aid of the Finnish
Government, Mr. Line was able to'
include ind his picture such phases
as the countryzs modern develop-
ment, social aspects, youth move-
ment, the work carried on by women
and the Great Arctic Highway, of
vast military importance today

tion was ably illustrated by his re-
port to the President in 1921. In
this report, Dean Bates said, "The
naive, not to say primitive, concep-
tion of law teaching as merely the
teaching, dogmatically, of the so-'
called leading principles, has long
since become outworn and discarded.
by those at all well informed re-
garding legal education. Today, the
legal scholar and lay teacher must
study and teach law as it is, but also
with the historical viewpoint and
Changes Since His Entry
Dean Pound's article tells of the
changes that have taken place since
Dean Bates first ent.er.ed into the
legal education field, when, in order,
to practice law, it was only neces-
sary for a person to "read" law in
an attorney's office until he decid-
ed he was able to pass the relatively
easy examinations. The generation
of Dean Bates has seen marked im-
provement in legal education, stric-j
ter bar examinations and, the pro-
duct of these, a modern lawyer with
a socially broad viewpoint with a'
scientific knowledge of the law.
Persontally, Professor Goddard
points out, Dean Bates was little
wont to trifle with the indifferent or
frivolous student. But for the ear-
nest student and his success, both in'
the law school and in his after days
in practice, no sacrifice of time and
trouble on the part of the Dean
seemed too much. "One of his ma-
jor interests in the last years of his
active service has been a movement
to organize the alumni of the Law
School with the aim of securing
great benefit both to the school and
to the members in the active prac-
Wanted Improved 'Spirit'
"Dean Bates has said that it has
been his aim to see developed at
Michigan a more scientific study, a
much more serious study, and a more
conscienitious devotion to legal per-
formance, as compared with earlier
periods-in short, an improvement
in the 'spirit' of the entire institu-
tion. All these things have been ac-
complished in good measure."
In addition to serving as faculty
member for 36 years, and dean for
29, Dean Bates spent much time on
committees, special commissions and
lecturing. Among other organiza-
tions, he belonged to the American
Bar Association, Michigan Bar Asso-
ciation Committee on Legal Educa-
tion, Legal Research Committee of
the Commonwealth fund, National
Association Science Research Coun-
cil. From 1913.to 1916, he was presi-
dent of the National Order of Coif
and, in 1913 and 1914, president of
the Association of American Law

Professor Koella
Explains How Warx
Cut His Yapation
A summer's vacation in Europe in-
terrupted by the outbreak of hostili-
ties was described by Prof. Charles
E. Koella at Le Cercle Francais'
meeting last night.
After correcting his bluebooks and
recording the marks in record time,
Professor Koella and nis wife left
Ann Arbor June 12 to sail from New
York to Rotterdam.
Their itinerary included Belgium,
Holland, Hamburg, Copenhagen and
Norway where they spent six weeks.
When war was declared, the Koel-
las were travelling in Switzerland.'
A hurried journey was made from
Lucerne to Paris in the midst of the
evacuation, Professor Koella said.
Upon reaching Boulogne they found
there was no transportation by boat,
train, or air available. The only
means of reaching Rotterdam to
catch a boat sailing for home was by
a small taxi belonging to an Eng-
lishman which had not been requi-
sitioned for military use.
The party was forced to wait sev-
eral days before the expected vessel
arrived to bring them home.

frost with dhat caisual man-

phies, he elucidated, is that they are
bad pieces of exhibitionism. "From
Another World" deals not so much
with Untermeyer personally but with
the persons and events which have
impressed him. "It's commentaries
rather than confessions," he observed.
"The tone is that of informal conver-
sation-not too heavy on the-one
hand-not like the in-the-beard
mumblings of an old man with one
foot in the grave-and yet not too
many wisecracks.",
On the dusty cover of "From An-
other World" is the legend that, at
the age of 90, Mr. Untermeyer hopes
to undertake more serious work.
Probably for lack of space the legend
ends there. "That more serious work,"
Mr. Untermeyer said, to complete the
description, "will consist of breeding
a really bright new strain of red
irises. After all, Burbank's dead and
someone has to do it."
