The Nebraska State Bar association, at Its
faventli annual meeting Friday In Crelgh
ton Institute, adopted the report of the
committee on legislation affecting the pro
fession,' providing for the pppolntmcnt of
a committee of seven to secure th pas
sage of a Joint resolution In the legislature
submitting the proposition for a constitu
tional amendment to give -permanent relief
to tho supremo court situation.
It was pointed out that the present com
missioner system Is not satisfactory and
Is only a provisional arrangement at best.
The bar association Is In fayor of mIx or
nlna judges on the bench, of having them
residents of the capital city, of having
minority representation and of salaries In
creased so as to secure good men for the
positiona on the bench. .
The report submitted by B. F. Good,
chairman of the committee on Judicial ad
ministration, was read by Roacoe Pound.
The committee advised the return to the
district attorney system In place of the
present system of proseoution by county
attorneys. Many county attorneys arc In
experienced prosecutors, said the report.
It was recommended that a district attor
ney be selected for every Judicial district
of thq state, with deputies where they arc
needed. The county attorneys should be re
tained for advising county commissioners
and other like duties and the expense of
the salaries of the district attorneys could

of the county attorneys. It was lso rec
ommended that the grand Jury, he railed

.of the. Judges,, a it is now.

by tho suprtme court commission and that
lawyers who have practiced In other states
be compelled to undergo the same examina
tion upon coming to this state unless they
have been practicing for a certain number
of years, to be fixed by law.

and other made' pleus on behalf of the
poor young man "who studies law alone and
then finds, himself barred from practicing
