B ffalo Courier-Expre~s The editonal continues, 'we salute the officers
and members of tire Erie County Bar Association, whose work in es-
stablishing a program whereby legal services may be charged to a credit
I F as earned the organization a prestigious Award of Merit from the
Ani erican Bar Association? The master planners of the Master Charge
were our beloved pa. r president,
Mr. Robert Koren and Frank
~ Whitcher recently elected to our
ard of U ectors. As your Presi-
dent I w enely proud to havc
n present this award by the
President of tire American Bar As-
sociation, James F. Fellers, at the
?~ annual neeting of that association
~ in Honolulu on August 14, 1974 I
~tsY&ut~                         was literally bcsicgcd with ques-
tions from the bar executivos f urn
~V&1~9tF                         all over thc country, who all ex-
~           p e sed mt re t in adopting our

a r s proh Wove cost. This attitude is exempl~fied by a re em
lea r o t ed rot of rYe New York Times whic a concluded: The
Iv s y cc s nt quared, a edreval, gros ly inetfic ent and de-

public service. Jusnec must become a reality in the 1 yes of all Amen-
