CHAIRMAN'S COMMENTS --
The Mid-Year Meeting of the Association has been set for Friday, May 12, at the Radisson Cornhusker Hotel in
Lincoln. The date was set by the Executive Council at its recent meeting. A poll of the House of Delegate members
indicated that Friday was a slight favorite over Saturday for the meeting of the House, and the Council concluded that
the entire Mid-Year Meeting could be handled in one day.
All members of the Association, and particularly those who are delegate-members of the House, are urged to
reserve this cate on their calendars.
Present plans call for the House to convene at 9:00 a.m. on Friday. Items on the agenda will include the election
of the NSBA Delegate to the ABA House of Delegates, consideration of several items referred from the Executive Council,
and possible changes in some items of the budget.
Any member of the Association desiring a matter be considered by the House at this meeting should contact either
the delegate from his district, or any officer of the Association.
Speaker at the noon luncheon will be Professor Richard Effland of Arizona State University Law School, who will
talk on The Uniform Probate Code. This is a timely and vital subject with which we should all become familiar. A bill
to adopt the Code will undoubtedly be introduced in an early session of the Legislature. Professor Effland's visit is
being sponsored by the NSBA State Committee on Improvement of the Administration of Justice.
The afternoon of May 12 will be reserved for section and committee meetings. This is an ideal time for committees
to survey the results of their efforts so far and to begin to formulate their reports for presentation to the House at the
Annual Meeting on October 25. Delegates to the House must necessarily place tremendous reliance on the recommenda-
tions of the Association's committees. Committees and sections will also have to formulate any budget requests they
may wish to make to the State Committee on Budget and Audit by that time.
It is obvious that May 12 is going to be a busy and stimulating day. Plan now to join us!

Survey Shows Nebraska Lawyers Favor Association Offering of Professional Liability Insurance --
All active members of the NSBA in Nebraska recently received a questionnaire asking how they felt about the need
for the Association to offer professional liability insurance.
Jim McLaughlin of Weaver Minier Company reports that over 650 lawyers and/or law firms replied to the question-
naire. Of these, approximately 530 indicated the Association should sponsor such insurance for its members.
At this time, Weaver-Minier is actively investigating three possible insuring agencies for this type of insurance,
and hopes to have a report on a possible new professional liability insurance program within the next six weeks. The
State Committee on Insurance is keeping close watch on developments, so that any plan that may be adopted will meet
ds and situations of Nebraska lawyers as closely as possible.
Executive Council Authorizes new Medical-Hospital and Disability Insurance Program --
Jim Hewitt, chairman of the NSBA State Committee on Insurance, reports that at its last meeting the Executive
Council approved a new Comprehensive Medical Plan for NSBA members to be offered through Harold Diers and Company,
Omaha.
The new plan is a combination basic type hospital and a high limit catastrophe major medical policy. Persons
presently enrolled in an approved group plan will be able to convert with no loss of current benefits, and there will be a
90-day open enrollment period.
k   Diers and Company plan to have descriptive literature and enrollment forms in the mail in the next several weeks.
Iyoare interested before that time, contact them by telephone, (area 402) 341-3535.
