A Periodic Report to the Members of the Section of
Public Utility Law of the American Bar Association
Announcing the Utility Section Newsletter
With this, the first issue of the Utility. Section Newsletter,  your Officers and
Council expand the area of the Section's service to its members. The Newslet-
ter is launched with the high hope that it may provide an increasingly valuable
aid, and that it will receive the enthusiastic support of our entire membership.
We welcome your suggestions and assistance in forwarding the work of the Section
and join with all our members in extending to the Section's Committee on Publica-
tions our best wishes for the success of its fledgling Newsletter.  The editor of
the Utility Section Newsletter is Francis X. Welch, the Section's Secretary.
His address is 332 Pennsylvania Building, Washington 4, D. C.
The Utility Section Newsletter will generally consist of a message from the
Chairman, news of the Section, announcement of meetings and programs, news
about the membership, and significant developments with respect to legislation,
decisions, articles, and other pertinent items in the field of public utility law.
Material with respect to the various areas of utility industry interests will be con-
tributed from time to time by members of the respective committees ol the Sec-
tion. It is planned to issue the newsletters approximately three times during the
calendar year: in the fall, winter, and spring. Because the annual convention of
the American Bar Association and the general sessions of the Section customarily
take place in August, it will not be necessary to publish the Utility Section News-
letter during the summer in view of the fact that the annual report of the Stand-
ing Committee is distributed to the membership at that time.
The Chairman's Message
The Chairman's first message through this new medium to the members of the Sec-
tion of Public Utility Law will, understandably, deal with the Newsletter itself.
The Last Retiring Chairman of our Section, Clarence H. Ross, of Chicago, active-
ly supported the proposals of several Council members that the Section establish a
quarterly newsletter. As a result of action taken at the 1960 Spring Meeting of
your Council, Mr. Ross appointed a special committee to formulate plans for the
project. It was composed of Horace P. Moulton, Chairman, and Messrs. Herbert
B. Cohn, C. William Cooper, Jerrold Seymann, and Francis X. Welch, the Sec-
tion's Secretary. Following a meeting in New York city in May, that committee
unanimously recommended the project, and this recommendation was approved by
the Council at its meeting in Washington, D. C., last August.
The Council of your Section wants to extend the work of the Section and to increase
the value of its services to its members. The Utility Section Newsletter,  it is
hoped, will be a definite step in that direction. In laying out the ground rules for
his Publications Committee, Chairman Moulton recently wrote, in part:
