President Eisenhower proclaimed May 1st of this year as "Law Day," and the day was formally observed throughout the nation. Gratifying as that was, it is hardly enough, in this or any other era, for self-satisfaction about American appreciation of our heritage of liberty under law. More important than appreciation of this priceless heritage is appreciation of the stern duty that goes along with it. Unless we daily earn this prize, we daily lose some of it. Its real strength is the revitalizing effort we add to it in our daily lives. There soon would be no precious "liberty under law" if we thought only to enjoy it, and not to serve it.
