The Law School - In common with all other law schools requiring college work for admission, this school has suffered a very heavy loss in attendance because of war conditions. This, however, is a matter for pride and not for discouragement for it means that our students have gone into the army or navy or other branches of the national service in very high ratio to their total number. And this is by no means due only to the effect of the Selective Service Act for from the very beginning our men have volunteered in great spirit and promptness. In 1917 fewer than two-thirds of the then senior class were present at the Commencement exercises to receive their degrees. Most of them had gone by the middle of May. All this indicates that the profession is living up to one of its high traditions of patriotic service.
