New Lawyers Will Be Sworn In August 10

On Thursday, May  25, the Constitution and Bylaws of the
South Carolina Bar Association were amended to create a
Young Lawyers Conference of the Association. Membership
in the Conference is limited to members of the Association,
not over thirty-six years cf age. There are approximately
250 members of the Cooiterence.
The purpose of the Conference is to stimulate the interest
of young lawyers in the objects of the Association, to carry
on activities which will be of assistance to young lawyers,
and to make reports and recommendations to the Executive
Committee of the Association.
An organizational meeting was held on May 26, at which
time bylaws were adopted and officers and Conference Ex-
ecutive Committee members were elected. At the organiza-
tional meeting a resolution was unanimously adopted au-
thorizing the Conference to affiliate with the Junior Bar
Conference of the American Bar Association. Officers of
the Conference are: Glen E. Craig of Columbia, Chairman;
J. Kenneth Rentiers of Charleston, Vice-Chairman; and
James C. McLeod, Jr., of Florence, Secretary-Treasurer.
Members of the Conference Executive Committee are: Wim.
H. Vaughan, Jr., of Charleston, James C. Cordell of Colum-
bia, Jack F. McIntosh of Anderson, C. Victor Pyle, Jr., of
Greenville, Virginia A. Gaston of Chester, and Thomas E.
Rogers, Jr., of Florence. Wm. H. Gibbes of Columbia serves
as the Member of the Conference on the Executive Com-
mittee of the Association.
Conference activities, which have already been planned,
are as follows:
1. Luncheon following admission ceremonies: A luncheon
will be held in Columbia following the next admission
of lawyers to practice before the courts of this state.
This luncheon is being planned by the Conference and
will be sponsored jointly by the South Carolina and
American Bar Associations. The purpose of this hnch-
eon will be to welcome these lawyers to the profession,
and to encourage them to participate in organized Bar
activities at the county, state and national level.
2. Elliott Memorial: A committee, with Louis Howell of
Spartanburg as Chairmm.n, is being formed for the pur-
pose of establishing a memorial in memory of Profes-
sor W. T. Elliott. Mr. Talley, as he was affectionately
known by tile Law students, served as a Law Professor
at the Law School from 19:32 to 1960. In view of Mr.
Talley's service to the Law School, it is believed ap-
propriate that his memorial be evidenced by contri-
butions being made in his name to the South Carolina
Law School Endowment. NMembers of the Conference

..... SCBA  ....
Judges and !-',yers from throughout the State have
made contributions towards the painting of a posthumous
portrait of Chief Justice Taylor H. Stukes, of Manning.
The portrait is being painted by Albert Murray, an artist
of international reputation, and will be unveiled in the fall
on a dav which will be set aside for this purpose by Chief
Justice Claude A. Taylor. Memorial exercises honoring the
late Chief Justice will be held at the same time.
While many lawyers and firms have already contributed,
those who have not made contributions and desire to do so
should send the same to Stukes Memorial Committee, 1225
Washington Street, Columbia. Booklets containing the
names of the donors will be presented to Mrs. Stukes and
to the Court.
Mr. Murray painted the posthumous portrait of Chief
Judge John J. Parker which hangs behind the bench in
the courtroom of the Fourth Circuit Court of Appeals in
Richmond. He has also clone portraits of many other prom-
inent Americans in Government, industry and the pro-
fessions. He is working from a number of excellent photo-
graphs of the late Chief Justice loaned for the purpose by
Mrs. Stukes.
