    VOLUME VIII, NUMBER 1, APRIL 1977


            FROM THE CHAIRMAN
So far my year as Chairman has been most exciting.
With no relief from my own practice, the Section's
business has made a normally hectic pace even more
hectic. But I've enjoyed the
meetings and calls and cor-
respondence, the institutes
have been exceptionally good,
and the Palm Springs Council,
Wneting fell during the coldest
days in Chicago's history.
   At that midwinter meeting, I
 appointed the nominating
 committee for the August 1977
 annual meeting. In accordance   Lester Asher
 with the Section's by-laws, I consulted with Jay Siegal,
 the chairman-elect, and selected Evan J. Spelfogel,
 Samuel J. Weintraub, and Louis P. Poulton to serve
 as the nominating committee. They will make their
 report at the Section's annual meeting in Chicago.
   The National Institute on Developing Labor Law,
 which was held in Washington, D.C. on March 1 and
 2, was very successful and the participants were all
 excellent. Vincent Apruzzese and Robert Baptiste
 deserve thanks from everyone who attended the pro-
 gram they worked so hard to arrange. One member of
 the Section (Jana H. Guy) wrote the following com-
 ment about the sessions on the Developing Labor
 Law:
   I wanted to share with you my enthusiasm about the
   program at the recent ABA National Institute on Devel-
   oping Labor Law in Washington, D.C. As a rookie in
   labor law, I found it most helpful, not only as an update
   in many areas, but also as a foundation in some areas not
   high-lighted in my law school labor courses.
   Please add my congratulations to those you must be
   receiving from many sources for a program that was
   obviously well planned, and equally well executed.
   The National Institute on the Labor Law of Health
 Care Institutions will be held in Washington on April
 28 and 29. This also promises to be a most valuable
 meeting. Robert Connerton and Vince Apruzzese
 have invited experts from different fields to review
 developments since the August 1974 Health Care
 Amendments to the National Labor Relations Act.
   The Section's plans for the annual meeting in
 Chicago are taking shape. On the afternoon of August
 8, Professor Harry T. Edwards, the Secretary of the
 Section, will discuss Labor Law Decisions of the


Supreme Court 1976 term. On August 9 there will be
a dinner jointly sponsored by the International Labor
Law Committee of our Section and the International
Society of Labor Law and Social Security. The annual
luncheon of the Section will be held on Wednesday,
August 10, and we will honor Archibald Cox, a past
Secretary of the Section, a long-time participant in
our work, and a leading authority in the field of labor-
management relations. I have invited  F. Ray
Marshall, the new Secretary of Labor, to be a speaker
at our annual meeting, and he has indicated that he
will accept the invitation.
  The National Labor Relations Board will, of course,
be represented in our Chicago program, and we will
discuss developments with respect to the Board,
OSHA, and the EEOC. The poet laureate of the labor
relations field, Edward B. Miller, former chairman of
the National Labor Relations Board, has been invited
to present one of his poetic works during the course of
the annual meeting in Chicago.


          ABA NATIONAL INSTITUTE
             ON HOSPITALS AND
          HEALTH CARE FACILITIES
Section members are urged to mark their calendars
for the Section's Third National Institute of the year,
to be held on Labor Relations Law in Health Care
Institutions in Washington, D.C. at the Shoreham
Americana Hotel on April 28-29, 1977. The program
for this Institute is being designed to present a com-
prehensive and in-depth treatment of all aspects of
labor relations relating to health care and will focus
particularly on the NLRB's exercise of jurisdiction
and conflicts with state law, bargaining unit deter-
minations, strikes and picketing and the role of the
Federal Mediation and Conciliation Service. The
program is being arranged by Robert Connerton, who
was active in securing passage of the 1974 health care
amendments to the National Labor Relations Act,
and is under the overall direction of Robert Baptiste
and Vincent J. Apruzzese, Co-Chairmen of the
Committee on Institutes and Meetings.
