Teacher and scholar meet again. Washington, D.C., April 1. Memories of school days were recalled today when Dean Harry M. Bates of the Michigan Law School, faced Senator Henry F. Ashurst, Chairman of the Senate Judiciary Committee, across the witness table in voicing his opposition against the President's court reform plan. Senator Ashurst was a student in Dean Bates' (right) law class at Michigan in 1903. As he and Dean Bates met, Senator Ashurst said: "If I have made a failure at law, I'm going to blame it on you," 4/1/1937
