       Annual Meetings

              1968: Judged by numbers attending and by the expressions of satisfaction from
       participants, the 1968 Annual Meeting in New Orleans was a success. There were 1,853
       registered participants, certainly the largest number ever to take part in an AALS
       Annual Meeting. With wives and other family members, we filled two hotels and had
       many rooms in several others. The addresses and the proceedings of the round tables
       dealing with the theme of the meeting, Legal Education and the Developing Countries,
       will be published in a separate issue of the Journal of Legal Education as soon as
       the editing process is completed.

              1969: As previously announced, the 1969 Annual Meeting will be held in San
       Francisco, with the San Francisco Hilton as the headquarters hotel. President Lockhart
       has selected the theme, Contemporary Social Research, The Law and the Law School, as
       the dominant subject for the principal addresses and most of the round tables. Pro-
       fessors Maurice Rosenberg and Harry Kalven are the co-chairmen of the Program Committee,
       and Professor Roger Cramton is acting as coordinator of the program planning. A grant
       from the Walter E. Meyer Research Institute of Law has been made available for the
       planning and preparation for the meeting.

              Relevant to the annual meeting and its theme was a conference on Legal Education
       and the Social Sciences, which was attended by about two dozen participants at the
       headquarters of the National Science Foundation in Washington on February 10 and 11,
       1969, and supported by a grant from the Foundation. A report on the conference will be
       distributed shortly.

       1970 Committee Memberships

              Enclosed with this Newsletter is a message from President-Elect Jefferson
       Fordham, soliciting expressions of interest and preference in committee assignments
       for 1970. It will be helpful to him, in making appointments to committees,
       if he can receive a generous response to this request.

       Libraries Standards

              On January 17, 1969, there was mailed from the Office of the Executive Director
       an announcement of the promulgation of revised Regulation 8 of the AALS Executive
       Committee Regulations, dealing with standards for law school libraries. The Regulation
       had been promulgated by the Executive Committee on December 29, 1968, as a result of the
       action by the membership in amending paragraph 8 of Section 6-1 of Article 6 of the AALS
       Articles of Association at the general session on December 29, 1968. Copies of the Reg-
       ulations were duly sent to all member schools, and will remain in force unless, within
       60 days from the date of mailing, one fourth of the member schools register objection.

       Law Students and the Draft

               Other than the Armendaris (also spelled Armendariz) case, mentioned below, there
       have not been any significant developments concerning Selective Service in the last
       several months. Although statutory authorization to induct for training and service ex-
       pires on July 1, 1971 (not June 30, 1969, as stated in the previous Newsletter), several
       changes are being proposed. As has been extensively reported in the press, proposals,
       similar to earlier ones, are currently being considered to institute the so-called
