CHAIRMAN'S COMMENT


We are nearing the end of another productive year
for the Section, in spite of the trauma of the loss of
Mary Ellen Krug last December. I am extremely
pleased to report in that regard
that the ABA Board of Gover-
nors approved the Section's
contribution of $10,000 to
establish a Mary Ellen Krug
Scholarship at the University of
Washington School of Law, to
be awarded annually to a de-
serving student of labor and
employment law, and a check
has been sent to the school for  Laurence J. Cohen
that purpose. We are being joined in this effort by
the Labor Law Section of the Seattle-King County
Bar Association, which is contributing a like amount.
  The activities of the Section have continued to
grow during the year, and plans for additional ac-
tivities are underway. When my duties as Chairman
end at our Annual Meeting in August, I will pass the
torch to Allan L. Bioff, of Kansas City, Missouri,

with a feeling of pleasure and confidence (and some
relief). From my long association with Allan, I know
that he will provide outstanding leadership for the
coming year.
  Our Annual Meeting in New York, on August
11-13, will mark the 40th Anniversary of the Section.
The record of achievement over this period has been
truly phenomenal and one in which all Section mem-
bers can take great pride. As we commemorate this
milestone, we have planned what promises to be a
most exciting program. The Section will devote a ma-
jor portion of its program to the growth of drug and
alcohol problems in the workplace and the increasing
use of polygraphs by companies, with emphasis on
balancing employee privacy rights with employer
needs. Highlights will include, on Monday after-
noon, August 11, Section Secretary Michael Beck's
Annual Review of the United States Supreme Court
Decisions, followed by a program on drug and
alcohol screening in the workplace, co-sponsored
with the Section of Individual Rights and Re-
sponsibilities and the Young Lawyers Division. The
