FORTIETH ANNUAL MEETING

THE OHIO STATE BAR ASSOCIATION

held at

CEDAR POINT, OHIO,

Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday, July 8th, 9th, 10th,

FIRST SESSION

Tuesday afternoon

Three o'clock

July 8, 1919

The Fortieth Annual Meeting of The Ohio State Bar Association was called to order in the Assembly Room of the Hotel Breakers, Cedar Point, Ohio, Tuesday afternoon, July 8, 1919, at three o'clock P. M., by President Ensign N. Brown, of Youngstown.

The President then delivered his address. (See Appexdix, page 54).

Upon motion, the address of the President was received and ordered to be made a part of the minutes of the meeting.

Secretary Charles E. Blanchard presented his annual report, as follows:

SECRETARY'S REPORT

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

Your Secretary submits the following report for the past year:

The report of the proceedings of the last annual meeting, held at Cleveland, Ohio, August 26th and 27th, 1918, constituting Volume 39, has been printed and distributed to the members of the Association, to a large number of law schools and law libraries, and to the exchange list of the Association throughout the United States.

By reason of the depleted condition of the treasury of the Association at the close of the Cleveland meeting, and by reason of the increased cost of the printing and distribution of the copies of this volume, the executive committee instructed the Secretary to print only the minutes of the Proceedings at the last annual meeting, together with the annual address of the President. To comply with this order the discussions of reports of committees, resolutions, recommendations, motions and all addresses delivered before the Association, except the President's annual address, were omitted from Volume XXXIX. To lessen the expense of the publication of Volume XXXIX the Secretary was also instructed by a majority vote of the Executive Committee to have Volume XXXIX bound in paper.

Since this volume of the proceedings has been distributed to the members of the Association, several members have made inquiry of the Secretary if it were not possible to obtain a cloth bound volume, stating that they were preserving all their volumes and desired to have them in uniform binding as heretofore.

Due to the effective and energetic methods by which our present Treasurer has collected past and current dues of the Association, the treasury of the Association is now in the best condition that it has been for the past several years. Your Secretary, therefore, suggests that it may be advisable to republish Volume XXXIX in conjunction with Volume XL for the year 1919, and to bind both volumes in one cloth covering, thereby maintaining the uniform binding of previous years.

Notices were duly sent by the Secretary to all standing and special committees, calling their attention to such matters as had been referred to them, and urging all committees to take an active part in furthering the work of the Association.

The Secretary has received, during the year, annual reports from numerous State Bar Associations, all of which have been
