The fall meeting of the Council of the Section
was held on September 18, 1976 in Washington,
D.C. The date of the meeting was advanced
several weeks ahead of the usual October date in
order to give the Section committees additional
time to prepare any recommendations they
might have forthe midyear Council meeting. The
attendance of committee chairmen at the Coun-
cil meeting was excellent.
In connection with recommendations from
committees to the Council, all committee chair-
men were cautioned that it was essential they
obtain the approval of the Resolutions Review
Committee, as to form, on all reportsand recom-
mendations prior to presenting them to the
All committee chairmen were also informed of
the good news that Antonin Scalia, a member of
the Council and Assistant Attorney General of
the United States, Office of Legal Counsel, and
also Chairman of the Section's Agency Liaison
Committee, and his two Vice-Chairmen, Carl
Goodman, General Counsel, Civil Service Com-
mission, and Thomas Newkirk, Office of Legal
Counsel, would assist each committee chair-
man desiring liaison with a federal government
agency to initiate that liaison directly through
the general counsel of the agency, rather than
through other agency personnel, as in the past.
It is anticipated that this will give the Section's
committees more effective contact with the
agencies than in the past.
At the meeting, the Council considered and
adopted proposed comments which the Labor
Committee had prepared for submission to the
Occupational Safety and Health Review Com-
mission with respect to its rules on filing. Peter
Wolff, Co-Chairman of the Educational Ad-
ministration Committee, reported on new
regulations proposed by the Department of
Labor establishing procedures to enforce its
responsibility in the area of non-discrimination
in educational institutions.
Further consideration was given to the pro-
posed resolution presented by the Banking
Committee relating to the procedures of the

Comptroller of the Currency and the Federal
Home Loan Bank Board for improved informal
adjudication and the availability of staff recom-
mendations in proceedings to charter new
national banks and federal savings and loan
associations. Representatives of both agencies
were present at the meeting to present their
viewpoints in opposition to the proposal. Wil-
liam Murane, Vice-Chairman of the Section's
Banking Committee and former General Coun-
sel of the Federal Deposit Insurance Corpora-
tion, stated his enthusiastic support for the
revised proposal of the Committee. Following
extensive discussion in which Council mem-
bers, Robert Dixon, former Assistant Attorney
General, Office of Legal Counsel, and Manuel
Cohen, former Chairman of the SEC, partic-
ipated, the proposal, with amendments, was
approved by a vote of nine to six.
Robert McCarty, Chairman of the Member-
ship Committee, and Nelson Crowther, a Coun-
cil member, former Chairman and now Vice-
Chairman of the Committee, reported that
membership in the Section had increased by ten
percent over the past year and at an average rate
of five percent over the past five years. In
response to their request for suggestions as to
how to sustain and increase this membership
growth, the names of a number of legal or-
ganizations whose members might also be
interested in joining the Section were sug-
gested. Further suggestions are welcome from
all Section members.
Arthur Bonfield, Chairman of the Division, of
State Administrative Law of the Section,
reported that he has four projects on the agenda
