PRESIDENT'S ADDRESS
By CHARLES D. WELCH
Before the Bar Association of the State of Kansas
I desire to thank the members of the Executive Council for their fine cooperation
in the administration of the affairs of the Association during the past year, and also
the various committees. They have done a good job in their respective fields.
I want you to know that I deeply appreciate the honor of having acted as your
President. I esteem it as one of the highest honors that one who loves the profession of
law can attain.
Our country at this moment is faced with the most momentous crisis which has
confronted it since the adoption of our Constitution.
We are now engaged in a global war, a war to the death, on many fronts. The
most important task which confronts every one of the American people is winning
the war.
When we remember the brutality of the Japs in Singapore, in China, their cold
blooded murder of our pilots, and the ruthlessness and bestial cruelty of Germany in
looting, starving, enslaving and massacring innocent citizens of those countries which
they have conquered, we should realize what it would mean if we should fail to win.
Better for all of us that we be stripped of all of our possessions and lose our lives
than live to be slaves of Hitler and Hirohito.
The lawyers of Kansas and of this Nation are alive to the danger confronting our
country and I know I speak for all of them when I say that to the last man they are
devoting themselves to doing everything they can to win the war. I know further that
without exception they stand behind our Commander-in-Chief in his announcement
to the Axis powers that we will not stop fighting this time until Germany and Tokio
have been invaded, and until unconditional surrender.
Of the 1600 lawyers in active practice in Kansas, more than one in every four
are now members of the armed forces. Most of them volunteers-many others are
awaiting the call.
Every lawyer not in the armed service is gladly doing his part-and giving every
assistance in the war effort.
Lawyers are acting as appeal agents, serving on draft boards, assisting in bond
sales, giving legal assistance to soldiers and their dependents.
