CHAIRMAN'S MESSAGE
December's Council meeting in Marina del Rey.
California, faced a long agenda. It included six items
for possible action by the ABA House of Delegates,
twelve items for decision by the
Council alone, and nineteen
committee reports concerning
on-going projects.
The Council elected Alwyn
V. Freeman of Beverly Hills,
California as the new editor-
in-chief of The International
Lawyer for a two-year term.
Freeman was chosen on the
recommendation of a special   James T. Haight
search committee from  among a dozen serious
candidates for the challenging but unpaid task.
Freeman's 35-year career in international law spans
responsibilities in government, teaching, prolific
writing, and the private practice of law. We're
convinced we have a very worthy successor to
Eberhard P. Deutsch, to whom high tribute was paid
at the December meeting.
The impact of inflation was evident in all Council
discussions. Law student annual fees were reluctantly
increased from $3 to $5, effective July 1, 1975. This
will take place concurrently with the regular member
fee hike from $10 to $12.50, adopted by the Section
last August.
The Council determined to examine Section income
and expenses on a continuing basis, particularly while
the publications program  continues to expand
agressively.
Two books will be published in the next few
months: Business Transactions with the U.S.S.R. and
The Multinational Corporation  Checklist. The
Council also  approved  publication  of articles
originating in the Section's recent institute on Current
Legal Aspects of Doing Business in Black Africa.
Because Mid-East oil dollars are pouring into this
nation with deep implications, a National Institute on
Foreign Investment in the U.S. has been tentatively
scheduled for Chicago on October 2 and 3, 1975,
under Section planning.

INTERNATIONAL LEGAL
EXCHANGE PROGRAM
The ABA's International Legal Exchange Program
(ILEP) is moving rapidly ahead with notable accom-
plishment. In conjunction with colleagues in New
York City, a lour week program was arranged for
twelve Israeli lawyers, housed with families of lawyers
in New York City and Washington, and with a pro-
fessional program which included a seminar at the
New York Stock Exchange on American investments
in Israel, jury selection in a U.S. District Court, a visit
to the U.S. Supreme Court. the office of the Attorney
General and visits to the oflices of several U.S. Con-
gressmen.
In early November, ILEP hosted six high-ranking
Portuguese judges, the first to come to the United
States since the new government came to power. And
in the spring of 1975 the first organized ABA
exchange group of three of our distinguished
colleagues, Chesterfield Smith (outgoing President.
ABA), Lawrence Walsh (President-Elect, ABA), and
the Honorable Shirley Hufstedler (U.S. Court ef
Appeals in Los Angeles) will visit the Soviet Un;on. A
return visit by three distinguished Soviet practitioners,
including the President of the Association of Soviet
Lawyers (the Chief Justice) will also take place in 1975.
ILEP has also become the recipient of income from
the ABA's Henry Morris Trust to be used to assist
