Fifty names were added to the membership roll since the Annual Meeting last August.

The deaths of fourteen have either been reported or have come to the knowledge of the Treasurer. The names of these have been sent to the Committee on Legal Biographies, Mr. Baer, of Cincinnati, Chairman.

The resignation of thirty-seven members have been received during the year.

At the last annual meeting held in Cleveland a resolution was adopted remitting the dues of those members who were in the Military or Naval Service of the United States. The Treasurer endeavored to find the names of those coming within the scope of this resolution. The result was that sixty-eight members were in the Military Service. The Treasurer further states that there are probably more than this, but he has been unable to learn their names, but as they come to hand will embody them in the Annual Reports from time to time.

The total number on the rolls of the Association at this time is 1,089.

Earnest efforts have been made to collect all back dues, but as many were in the Military Service it was thought not safe to drop names from the membership for non-payment of dues. The names of all have therefore been retained and dues for preceding years have been added to the 1919 statement, the result of which cannot now be reported, for the reason that there has not been enough time to respond. Respectfully submitted,

THE PRESIDENT:—The Executive Committee has no report to make except as given in the report of the Secretary, who was also Secretary of the Executive Committee.

The next is the report of the Committee on Grievances. I understand that the Chairman, Mr. Ballard, is not here, but his report is here and will be read by the Secretary.

The Secretary read the report of the Committee on Grievances as follows:


COLUMBUS, OHIO, July 8, 1919. To The Ohio State Bar Association:

The Committee on Grievances takes pleasure in reporting that no complaint has been brought to its attention against any member of the Association during the past year. Members of the Association have not been affected with Bolshevism or kindred evils, and are lending their best efforts toward solving the problems of reconstruction. Respectfully submitted,



Simeon M. Johnson, of Cincinnati, moved that the report be received and filed.

Motion seconded and carried.

THE PRESIDENT:—The next will be the report of the Committee on Judicial Administration and Legal Reform.

SIMEON M. JOHNSON, of Cincinnati:- Why has that report not been printed and sent to the members?

THE PRESIDENT:-It has only been prepared just a short time, I think. The Committee just had a meeting.

Louis H. WINCH, of Cleveland:- Judge N. B. Billingsley, the Chairman of the Committee, is unavoidably detained in New York City. He expected to be here today, but I received a telegram from him asking me to submit the report of the Committee. The report of the Committee consists of three propositions or questions, two submitted to it by the Executive Committee and one proposition originated by this Committee. The report is as follows:
