An   analysis of the problems
and some of the possible solutions
in the field of character investiga-
tion prior to admission to the bar
was the theme of an       address
delivered by Oscar Hauglund he-
fore the National Conference of
Law Examiners on August 25 at
Boston. Mr Haugland, a member
of the Hennepin County Bar As-
sociation  and  Secretary  of the
State Board of Bar Examiners,
was one of the three persons se-
lected by the National Conference
to address them. According     to
others present at the meeting,
the discussion was hailed by the
delegates as   a  very  thorough
and able presentation of the sub-
Mr. Haugland quoted at length
from various surveys and reports

ernor Olson during his illness by
the Hennepin County Bar Asso-
ciation, and he dictated a letter of
thanks while at his summer home.
Because of the sudden turn in his
condition, he was unable to cor-
plete the sending   of the tele-
gram. We print below the Gov-
senor's  unsigned  letter  and  a
letter from his secretary, which
is self-explanatory.
I am enclosing a letter dic-
tated by the Governor while
he was at his lake cottage
just prior to his last trip to
Rochester. Before the letter
could be written and returned
to him for signature, he be-
came seriously ill and never
had an opportunity to sign it.
One of his last requests,
expressed to me at the hos-
pital, was that I should mul
you this letter even though
it was unsigned.
