            REGULAR MEETING HELD ON FEBRUARY 12, 1954

            Thirty-two members of the Chicago Association of Law
Libraries gathered at the Normandy House Restaurant on Friday,
February 12, 1954 for the regular luncheon meeting. Mr. Charles
A. McNabb, Chairman of the Constitutional Revision Committee,
was presented by the President, Miss Jean Ashman. Mr. McNabb
presented proposals for changes in three sections of the Consti-
tution, as defined in the letter of January 29th which was cir-
culated to all members by our Secretary-Treasurer, Miss Dorothy
Scarborough. A unanimous vote in favor of adoption of the amend-
ments was cast. Mrs. Virginia Dun'rp, Chairman of the Program
Committee, presented Mr. Francis J. Rooney, joint author of the
forthcoming publication entitled RESEARCH IN ILLINOIS LAW, who
described this work and answered queries concerning it. Mrs.
Dunlap explained that Mrs. Bernita J. Davies, the other joint
author, was unable to be present because of the great demand upon
he' time necessitated by preparation for the new law library at
the University of Illinois. 14r. Rooney explained that the pur-
pose of the book was to indicate some poInts of departure in
legal research involving Illinois Materials. He expressed the
hope that the volume would be of considerable value to law stu-
dents and lawyers. Some of the topics treated in its eight
chapters are: Judicial Systems and Court Reports, Administrativ0
Law, Statutory Law, Citators, and Digests. Although, Mr. Rooney
disavowed any intention to educate law librarians, it may be
predicted safely that the work will become a vade mecum not only
for all law librarians in Illinois, but for many others across
the nation.
