March 15, 1974


     In her address to the House of Representatives in
New Orleans, President Mentschikoff proposed that the
recruiting function be separated from program activities
at the Annual Meeting by holding a separate Faculty
Recruitment Conference during the weekend following
Thanksgiving. The Executive Committee has decided to
try this on an experimental basis. Plans for the Con-
ference are now underway. Space has been reserved at
the Washington Hilton Hotel for Friday and Saturday,
November 29 and 30. The Faculty Appointments Desk will
be operated from noon Friday, November 29th to noon
Sunday, December ist. All those who sign up for the
fall edition of the Faculty Appointments Register will
be urged to attend the Conference, as will others in-
terested in teaching positions. The deadline for the
fall Register will be moved up to October ist, so that
the Register will be in the hands of the deans about
October 15th. If a sufficient number of late appli-
cations are received, a supplement will be distributed
early in November.

     All schools interested in recruiting new faculty
members for the 1975-76 academic year are urged to
make plans to send representatives to the Faculty Re-
cruitment Conference. Additional information on pro-
cedures and details on hotel arrangements will be dis-
tributed early in the fall.

     There will be no Faculty Appointments Desk at the
Annual Meeting in San Francisco, and deans are asked to
restrict recruiting activities during that meeting to
a minimum so that all may participate in the general
and Section program activities.


     The 1974 Annual Meeting will be held in San Francisco,
with headquarters at the Fairmont Hotel. Program Committee
Chairman Sanford H. Kadish of the University of California
at Berkeley, is planning a full day of activities of general
interest on December 28th, including panel discussions as
well as the Association Luncheon and Association Follies.
Section programs are tentatively scheduled for both December
27th and 29th.

    During the first session of the House of Representatives at the Annual Meeting in New Orleans, a few minutes were
devoted to a tribute to Michael H. Cardozo in recognition of his service as Executive Director for the ten years be-
tween 1963 and 1973. An illuminated scroll signed by all the Association presidents during that period and a pair of
graphic prints were presented with an introduction by Walter Gellhorn. Mike acknowledged the occasion with a few words
of appreciation, but has asked permission to transmit a part of his message to his colleagues in the AALS in this News-
letter, to reach those who were not present at the session and may not see the transcript in the Proceedings:

         This has been an especially heartwarming occasion because of the people involved. Those who
    heard the reading of the names on the scroll will readily realize why my work with the officers of
    the AALS has been so satisfying. They have been representatives of that special class of humanity,
    the law teachers, who combine the qualities of being lawyers - better to work with, to drink with,
    to argue with, than most other varieties of mankind- with that extra ingredient of concern for the
    public interest that distinguishes the law-trained educators. I thank all of those whose evincing
    of those qualities made my tenure so personally rewarding and whose contributions to the recogni-
    tion of that tenure created such pleasant mementos.
