Visit Local Bars
Late In October
In accordance with the plans of Clay
V. Spear, President of the Idaho State
Bar, to visit with each of the local bar
districts, his itinerary through Southern
Idaho has been announced for the last
week in October.
President Spear plans first a luncheon
meeting with the combined Third and
Seventh District Bars In Boise on Wed-
nesday, October 29th. That evening he
will meet with the Fourth and Eleventh
District Bars in Twin Falls, and on the
following day a noon meeting is being
scheduled with the Ninth and Twelfth
District Bars in Idaho Falls. On Thurs-
day evening October 30th, the president
plans to meet with the Southeastern and
Sixth District Bars either in Pocatello
or Blackfoot, the exact place to be
Each of the local presidents is being
contacted regarding these meetings, and
although the dates are presently tenta-
tive, it is expected that they will be con-
firmed before the last week in October.
The northern bars will be contacted at
a later date, as those areas are more
accessible to the president and will not
require a special trip.

Without fanfare and with only
the usual confusion, we hereby in-
augurate Volume 2 of The Advocate
Uniform Law Commissioners
Consider Commercial Code
The Uniform Commercial Code was
the most prominent uniform law discuss-
ed at the National Conference of Com-
missioners on Uniform State Laws held
in Los Angeles, August 18 through 22,
according to Willis E. Sullivan, Boise
attorney and one of the Idaho Commis-
sioners on Uniform Laws. This new code,
which would replace the existing Nego-
tiable Instruments law, the Uniform
Sales Act and Conditional Sales Act,
and would modify other branches of the
law, including partnership and banking
laws, will be considered at the Idaho
Commissioners on Uniform Laws meet-
ing to be held in Boise, November 15,
Mr. Sullivan pointed out that the Ida-
ho Commissioners on Uniform Laws are
completely independent of the Idaho Bar,
being appointees of the Governor. A. L.
Merrill, Pocatello attorney, is Chairman

Prosecuting Attorney
Candidates Listed
(Because the office of prosecuting at-
torney in each county is one in which
lawyers have a professional interest, The
Advocate has attempted to compile a
list of all the candidates for this office
throughout the state. Since our sources
of information have been limited, we
hasten to explain that this is not an of-
ficial list. The reporter assigned this
task did the best he could within the
time allowed, and in the event there are
omissions from the list, we hereby apolo-
gize. Ed.)

C. Roden (R).
Adams: Carl H. Swanstrom (D).

Criminal Procedure
Being Explained In
Traffic Court Mefiings
At a conference of Southwestern Po-
lice magistrates, justices of the peace
and probate judges held in Boise on
September 25th, a new manual setting
forth criminal procedures in inferior
courts was presented and explained. The
conference was the first of six scheduled
to be held throughout Idaho during Sep-
tember and October for the purpose of
acquainting members of the judiciary
enforcing traffic laws with at least par-
tial solutions to their many problems.
Supreme    Court   Justice  Hen r y
McQuade, moderator of the conference,
pointed out that these members of the
judiciary are of extreme importance in
that most of the traffic charges in the
state are completely handled in their
courts. He urged the persons present to
become acquainted with the information
necessary to provide effective courts,
and suggested particularly that jail sen-
tences be considered in many cases
where only fines are imposed at the
present time.
The panel at the Boise meeting was
composed of Justice McQuade, as moder-
ator, District Judge Gilbert C. Norris
from the Seventh Judicial District, Wil-
liam C. Roden of the Attorney General's
office, Earl Koehler, Commissioner of
Law Enforcement, and Harold Davis,
State Safety Director. The panel presid-
ed at a question and answer period in
which they reported that many perti-
