PROBATE CODE REVISION CONMI.ITTEE HARD
AT WORK -- WATCH FOR LOCAL HEARINGS
An NSBA Special State Committee on
Probate Code Reform has now been an.
pointed by President Welch and is hard
at work. The committee is reviewing
the Uniform Probate Code no-i in the
Nebraska Legislature as LB 354(1973),
working to put the code in a form that
will be effective and wxeful for Neb-
raska citizens and the legal profession.
Robert R. :Trover, Omaha, is chairman
of the commttee; vice chairimen are
William A. Day, Jr., of Omaha, Thomas
M. Davies of Lincoln, and Charles W.
Phillips of Lincoln.
Others on the committee are Robert
Adams of Omaha, Ivan A. Blevens of
Seward, Dean R. Dalke of Beatrice,
Warren K. Dalton of Lincoln, Edgar R.
Geesaman of Omaha, Lynn D. Hutton, Jr.
of Norfolk, Donald H. Kelley of North
Platte, Kent 0. Littlejohn of Omaha,
Frank J. Mattoon of Sidney, Hon. Robert
C. McGowan of Omaha, James M. McQuillan
of Ogallala, Robert L. Mills of Osceola,
Charles E. Oldfather of Lincoln, Hon.
Ralph W. Slocum of Lincoln, Jeffrey D.
Toberer of Omaha, Howard E. Tracy of
Grand Island, Thomas W. Tye of Kearney,
and Charles E. Wright of Lincoln.
The committee hopes to at least par-
tially complete its work in time for
hearings on LB 354 that are now-scheduled
over the state for October and early Nov-
emer. At this time, hearings are being
considered for North Platte, Scottsbluff,
Northeast-Nebraska area, and Omaha. The
hearings will probably also cover LB 8
(1973), the Revised Nebraska Criminal
Code.
We'll try to make sure every lawyer is
)nformed as to the hearing nearest him,
so every point of view can be heard at
these meetings.

RULE CHANGE TO RAISE DUES SET FOR
COURT HEARINJG O J OCTOBER I
-A hearing on a proposed amendment to
the RULES of the State Association to
raise the annual dues for all members
has been scheduled for 2:00 p.m. on
October 1.
The hearing before the Nebraska Sup-
reme Court in the State House in Lincoln
will be open, and all lawyers who wish
are urged to appear and testify.
The proposed amendment was considered
and passed at the Mid-Year Meetinq of the
House of Delegates last Spring. Purpose
of the increase would be to establish a
Client Security Fund, hire a Counsel for
Discipline, and set un a greatly-expanded
program of continuing legal education and
hire a CLE Director.
Committees of the State Association have
been working on problems in these areas
for some time, and made their recommenda-
tions to the House at its meeting.
A proposal for a Client Security Fund
that would be put into operation in Fiscal
1974 was adopted by the House at its meet-
ing. It would be funded through dues in-
come at approximately $10 per member per
