The order of exercises of the meeting and the reports of certain committees for the year 1920-1921 were printed in a special pamphlet, which issued to members more than 30 days in advance of the meeting. The reports are as follows:

Standing Committees.--Admiralty and Maritime Law, Commerce, Trade and Commercial Law, International Law, Jurisprudence and Law Reform, Professional Ethics and Grievances, and Noteworthy Changes in Statute Law.

Special Committees.--Change of Date of Presidential Inauguration, Legislative Drafting, Uniform Judicial Procedure, Legal Aid Work, and Law of Aviation.

Sections, Allied Bodies, etc.—Trade-Mark and Copyright Law, Comparative Law Bureau and Section of Legal Education.

The new monthly JOURNAL has now completed its first year. The Secretary has co-operated closely with the Board of Editors of the JOURNAL, and has from time to time supplied current information concerning the affairs of the Association. The Secretary's office has had charge of the details of the printing and issuance of the Annual Report, and the special pamphlet containing reports of standing and special committees

In response to a growing demand, and by direction of the Executive Committee, the Secretary has re-arranged the geographical list of members by cities and counties, instead of merely by states as formerly, and has inserted opposite the name of each member the date of his election. The new list appeared

in the 1920 volume of the Association Reports, and it will be · revised and re-published in the 1921 volume.

The Secretary has received during the year reports of the various state bar associations, and a number of other books, all of which have been acknowledged through the JOURNAL.

The Secretary's office, established in the Tea Room of the Hotel Sinton, will use the system of registration cards as in recent years. These cards may be obtained at the office or in this meeting room. Cards should be signed legibly, and, after all blanks are filled, should be returned promptly.

Members and delegates are requested to register as soon as convenient after arrival. Daily lists of those in attendance will be printed for distribution at the meeting, and the last revision thereof will be included in the Report of the Proceedings.

A separate register of the members of the Judicial Section will be kept in the Secretary's office, Hotel Sinton, and members of that Section are requested to register their names and addresses immediately upon arrival.

All members of the Association and their families are entitled to a special railroad rate of fare and one-half for round trip to Cincinnati. A special desk has been provided at the Secretary's office, Hotel Sinton, where railroad certificates will be endorsed and information supplied.

Copies of the Constitution and By-Laws, program of 1921 meeting, lists of officers and committees, copies of committee reports, Canons of Ethics and other literature of the Association can be had at the Secretary's office in the Tea Room of the Hotel Sinton. Upon request at Secretary's office, stenographic service will be supplied.

Pigeonhole furniture has been provided in the Secretary's office for mail addressed to members in care of the American Bar Association; members will please inquire periodically for mail, messages and telegrams.

Application blanks and information concerning the status of applicants, as well as all information concerning membership may be obtained at the Headquarters of the Association.

The Secretary endeavors to keep the street address of each member, and prompt notification of changes is requested.

• Respectfully submitted,

W. THOMAS KEMP, Secretary.
