A BRIEF ACCOUNT OF THE AMERICAN BAR
ASSOCIATION MEETING IN LONDON
By 0. B. EIDSON, President
The Bar Association of the State of Kansas.
The'pilgrimage of members of the American Bar Association to London for
the concluding portion of their 80th annual meeting in July of 1957, was a
most memorable experience for those who were privileged to attend. Our
British hosts went all out to provide entertainment. On arrival at headquarters
in the Savoy Hotel, those of the American lawyers who had registered in ad-

British Judiciary. The latter entered from the left rear down a wide stairway
in single file, turning towards the audience on a further broad stairway which
lead down the center of the platform. All of our lawyers on the stage, as well
as in the audience in the hall, stood at attention during this entrance. The Lord
