February 10, 11 and 12
Governor Timmerman, Attorney-General Callison,
and S. C. Bar Association President Wilcox have cn-
dorsed the three-day conference on Traffic Courts to be
held at the University Law School on February 10, 11,
and 12.
In a separate program accompanying this issue of
the NTVE1.rS-ULLET N the conference age.da is set
in detail. With traffic problems increasing, this confer-
ence is most timely and should be well attended by all
who do business with traffic courts.
Lawyers particularly should be concerned with im-
proving these courts because more citizens come into
contact with law, justice, and the courts in
traffic courts than anywhere else. People's experiences
there tend to color their impressions of the judicial
system to such an extent that a deeper respect for law
and order can be fostered. and resentment towards our
law enforcement system minimized, by having the best
possible traffic courts.
Lawyers throughout the state are urged to attend
this conference, and to encourage all Judges, City Re-
corders. Mayors. Magistrates, traffic officers, and others
concerned with our traffic courts to come. too.

President Wilcox Notes Association Growth
The Executive Committee of the South Carolina Bar
Association at its last meeting approved a plan of the
Public Information Committee to publish a NEwS BUL-
LETIN in the hope that it would stimulate interest, keep
members in touch with the Association and advised of
its activities, and would present other information of
g neral interest to the legal profession. This is in keep-
ing with the new spirit and purposes of the Associa-
For many years past the South Carolina Bar Assoc-
iation was to a great extent a social organization hold-
ing one meeting annually which was always enjoyed,
but only by the few members who attended. The As-
sociation should be a vital influence among the lawyers
of our state. Every lawyer in the state should be a
In 1953, under the able leadership of Dean Samuel
Prince, the Association undertook to broaden its in-
fluence and activities, and set up three meetings a year
in addition to the annual convention. Each is devoted
to an Institute of general interest and value in advanc-
ing the legal knowledge of the members of the legal
profession. These quarterly meetings have proved very
effective. The first was held in October, 1953, at Co-
lumbia as a Tax Institute. It was an enthusiastic meet-
ing and well attended by lawyers from all parts of the
state. The second was held in November, 1953, at the
University Law School, and an excellent and informa-
tive institute on Federal Statutes affecting b'isiness
transactions and farming operatior .xas conducted.
The thitu meeting, held in January, 1954, at the Fed-
eral Building in Columbia as an Institute ,n Federal
practice, was wel' attended and was the most outstand-
ing of the three meetings.
During the annual convention in Charleston in May,
1954, Dean Prince, the retiring President of the Asso-
ciation, was unanimously named as Coordinator of
Institutes for the year 1954-55. In October, 1954, he or-
ganized a fine Institute on the new Internal Revenue
Code, and brought to Columbia some of the most out-
standing tax authorities of our country. These gentle-
men did a superb job and the meeting was a huge
The Executive Committee has approved the Traffic
Court Conference for the current Winter Quarterly
Meeting, and we sincerely hope that this very worth-
while conference will be well attended by the lawyers
of South Carolina.
The South Carolina Bar Association has nearly
doubled in size in recent years and the annual conven-
tion held in Charleston in May, 1954, was the largest
in the Association's history. The organized bar of our
state is at last coming into its own. Our present ob-
jectives are to increase membership, further promote
