MEYER   ELKIN  (Supervising Conciliation
       Counselor), and STAFF

       All of us in the Los Angeles Concil-
iation Court are excited about this Quarterly
and hope that in the not-too-distant future we
can  all plan and attend the first California
Conciliation Courts Conference.

       Events  have moved rapidly here in re-
cent months  and  here  are  a few  sample
highlights:
     ........In July, 1962, the Los Angeles
       County Board  of Supervisors gave this
       Court  an  award plaque  for its out-
       standing  service to  the community.
     ........In the December, 1962, Reader's
       Digest, there appeared an article about
       the Court, by Paul Friggens, entitled,
       The   Walk-In  Court That  Rescues
       Rocky  Marriages.
     ........This Court recently adopted the use
       of the Port-A-Punch IBM card to carry
       out an ongoing research program which
       is built into the daily intake proce-
       dures. Sociological data from the ap-
       plication forms will  be obtained in
       every case where a Petition For Con-
       ciliation has been filed. Our Court is
       reportedly the first one in the United
       States making  use  of such research
       procedures,  which   should  provide
       invaluable data for articles about dis-
       tressed   families  and   counseling
       approaches to them.


        We would  like to welcome San Diego
 into the  family of California Conciliation
 Courts.  One  of  our  counselors,  William
 Brockley, was  appointed to the counselor's
 position in San Diego beginning January 28,
 1963. Our  best wishes  to San Diego  for a
 successful first year.
