The June meeting of the Board of Gov-
ernors was held on the 28th in Lakeview,
home of Herbert P. Welch, a member of the
board. The meeting was largely devoted to
routine business and a consideration of the
program for the annual meeting in Port-
The board considered criticism that action
has not been taken by trial committees on
several discipline matters and the president
was authorized to insist that prosecutors
file their complaints and complete the hear-
ings prior to the annual meeting.
The contract for the publication of the
bar Bulletin was awarded to the Stevens-
Ness Law Publishing Company, Portland,
who submitted the low bid.
The Lake county bar wits host to the
visitors at luncheon and arranged for those
who could attend the meeting of the Order
of the Antelope on Hart Mountain.
Led by Weich, who was supposed to know
the way, Gunther Krause, Portland; A. K.
McMahan, Albany, and William G. East,
Eugene members of the board, and Alexan-
der G. Brown, acting secretary, started on
the 67-mile trip from  Lakeview to Hart
Mountain. After driving 132 miles, the
party arrived at the scene of the Antelope
The Hart Mountain trip was a great suc-
cess, although the party did not join the
300 who camped out all night, but returned
to Lakeview, this time by the 67-mile route.
Welch was still trying to explain the Lake
county measuring system when the party
left Sunday.
The board meeting also was attended by
George M. Roberts, Medford; Robert D.
Lytle, Vale, and J. J. Crossley, Portland.
The July meeting will be held at Medford
on the 19th.
Arthur Tarlow, 40, widely known Port-
land attorney and president of B'nai B'rith,
died suddenly in Portland June 8. He was
active in the local and state bar and had
long been a member of the public relations
committee. He was a graduate of the Uni-
versity of Oregon. A native of Russia he
served as interpreter on a number of Im-
portant occasions.


To the Members of the Oregon State Bar:
For some several years -last past many
Otegon lawyers have voiced a desire to
have a monthly bulletin patterned after
those which have been so successful in other
jurisdictions, published by the Oregon State
Bar, whereby the whole Bar could be ap-
prised of matters of local as well as of
general concern to the profession.
Your Board of Governors, therefore, de-
cided to give this publication a trial, believ-
ing that it would merit your support and
serve to stimulate more interest in the ac-
tivities of the Bar as a whole.
As you well know, neither this nor any
other publication can prosper or succeed
unless those for whom it is functioning get
behind it and assist in every way to make
it the type of bulletin for which it was con-
ceived, namely, for the benefit of the law-
yers of the State of Oregon. It is your pub-
lication, just as the Oregon State Bar is
your organization. The latter has made a
success because you have given freely and
generously of your time and energy to make
it such, and I have every confidence that
with the same support you will make this
pubication one of great help and interest
to the profession, and of which all of us
can be justly proud.
Yours very truly,
Oregon State Bar.
The annual meeting of the Oregon State
Bar will be held in Portland, September 11
and  12, according to announcement by
Gunther Krause, member of the Board of
Governors and chairman of the convention
William 0. Douglas, associate justice of
the Supreme Court of the United States,
will be one of the principal speakers and is
scheduled to appear on the Friday after-
noon program. The committee is attempt-
ing to arrange for another national figure
to appear and if successful his talk will be
heard Thursday night.
The tentative program calls for the an-
nual meeting to open at 10 A.M. on the
l1th at the Multnomah hotel, where the

Preliminary plans for the 1943 convention
of the American Bar Association to be held
in Portland have been completed by a spe-
cial committee appointed by the Board of
Governors and headed by Lamar Tooze, a
member of the board as chairman. The
committee report has been adopted by the
board and a consideration of this report
will be one of the important matters before
the bar at the annual meeting in Portland,
September 11 and 12.
It is anticipated that a meeting of the
ABA would bring from 4000 to 5000 visitors
who would be in Oregon for at least a week
(luring which the convention normally runs.
If the report of the committee is approved
by the bar, a preliminary invitation will
he extended when the American bar meets
in Indianapolis, September 29 to October 4.
New York city has extended an invitation
for the 1942 convention.
The place of the convention is determined
by the Board of Governors of the American
Bar Association and the formal invitation
to come to Portland in 1943 will have to be
presented not later than the time of the
1942 meeting. It is planned to have the
county, city and state join with the state
bar in extending the invitation.
Surveys by the Portland Charmber of
Commerce have found that Portland has
adequate facilities for the national conven-
tion. The American Bar Association has
never met in Portland.
Finances are one of the most important
features. All overhead expense of the con-
vention is borne by the association, but the
expense of entertainment and other fea-
tures is a local problem. A survey of the
costs of other recent conventions shows that
the expenses have run from $7500 at Mil-
waukie in 1934 to $25,000 in San Francisco
in 1939.
It is the opinion of the committee that
an unequalled convention can be staged in
Oregon for $10,000. The committee has
suggested that the members of the state
bar vote a voluntary contribution to the
convention fund of $1.00 a year for the
years 1942 and 1943, payable with the an-
nual dues; that an effort be made to obtain
financial assistance  from  governmental
units and, third, that private solicitation be
relied upon for the balance.
The preliminary report contains a series
