President's Message
)       It is interesting to note that within the next two
years there will take place two outstanding meetings
of lawyers in the international field within the West-
ern Hemisphere. The first meeting is to take place in
Mexico City in July, 1964 on the occasion of the
biennial meeting of the International Bar Associa-
tion. The second meeting will take place in May, 1965
in San Juan, Puerto Rico on the occasion of the bi-
annual meeting of the Inter-American Bar Associa-
tion. It should be of considerable interest to all law-
yers interested in international affairs that these two
major meetings are taking place in the general Latin
American area. It certainly appears appropriate at this particular period in the
development of international law and the relations between lawyers of other
nations, that emphasis should be directed toward the Latin American countries.
In view of comparatively recent developments in Cuba with the evidence of the
infiltration of the communist philosophy among our Latin American neighbors,
it seems more important than ever that lawyers of the Western Hemisphere
should confer, exchange ideas, and meet on a common ground for the purpose
of discussing problems of mutual interest. It appears to me that to some extent
at least, American lawyers have overlooked the responsibility of achieving
communication and accord among our colleagues of the Latin American coun-
tries.
In November of this year it is my intention, as President of the American
Bar Association, to tour some of the Latin American countries for the purpose
of exploring the possibilities of cooperation between the American Bar Associa-
tion and the Inter-American Bar Association toward the strengthening and
development of legal institutions in the Western Hemisphere and to attempt
to promote better and wider understanding among lawyers and laymen in
