How About YOUR Dues?
A close check-up of the
Association's membership
roll has just been made and
shows that only 58 members
have not paid their 1937
dues. Many of these delin-
quencies are due only     to
oversight or neglect. This
list of unpaid members has
now been placed in the hands
of the Membership Commit-
tee. If your name is thereon
will you   please  cooperate
with the committee to the
end that this delinquent list
may be wiped out. The best
way to do this would be to
send your check in to the
treasurer  at  once. Thank
you.

FOUR CLASSES
.TO RECEIVE
ATTENTION
Loring Outlines
Successes of
Commission
Four specific classes of cases
will occupy the attention of the
Hennepin County District Court
Commission    on    Unauthorized
Practice of Law and the Hennepin
County Bar Association's commit-
tee on the same subject according
to the report given by Edward J.
Loring, Chairman of the Commis-
sion at the first luncheon meeting
of the Association at the Dyckman
hotel on Tuesday, September 21.
The four classes of cases to be
studied and acted upon are:
1. Insurance Adjusters.
2. Accountants.
3, Title Insaranee Comsmsstes.
4. Trust Companies.
Mr. Loring outlined the work
which has been thus far accom-
plished by the Commission and
our association  committee, and
pointed out that in the field of
collection agency and pro rata
company abuses the actions taken
had  been  highly  successful in
eradicating unlawful practices.
The interest of the bar in this
subject was evidenced by the large
attendance which overflowed the
facilities which had been provided'
and necessitated the bringing in
of a number of additional tables.
In regard to the work for the
coming year, Mr. Loring reported
that the final action with regard'
to insurance adjusters had not been
definitely  determined  upon. He
suggested that in conferences thus
far held, it was thought that in-
sistance that adjusters be lawyers
might be the extent of present
action.
As to accountants the commis-
sion and committee have already
held meetings with representatives
of the accountants group and a
joint special committee is planned
to attempt an amicable adjust-
ment.
Mr. Loring pointed out that in
the case of the last two classes
Title Insurance and Trust Com-
panies there had    always been
much complaining by lawyers but
very little real evidence presented.
He insisted that the members of
the bar furnish real evidence on
which to base complaints or that
the entire matter be dropped.
Continued support of the com-
mission and committte by the as-
sociation and its individual mem-
bers both in the securing of evi-
_ence of abuses and by financial
contributions was urged by Mr.
Luring.
