the con vention was delivered following a fish luncheon at the Surf by Judge Seth Thomas Fort Dodge of the United States circuit court of ap peals speaking on Origin of the Power of Courts to Declare Statutes Cites Important Activity I would suggest that an im portant activity of the bar asso ciation shouldbe the stimulation of favorable law said Col George Bogert professor of the law school of Univer sity of Chicago at the high school auditorium Friday morning We must have the laws carried into effect The newspapers have shown how labor groups have flaunted the laws during recent months It is not the fault of labor alone but we find this public sen timent through all walks of life We must do what we can to see that those who are enforcing the laws have our support We must see to it that the general citizenry of the country has a feeling of re spect for the laws And we cant expect the rest of the public to obey our laws unless the legal profession takes the Law Professor Changed The law professor has changed a great deal from the time when he started teaching according to Colonel Bogert from the old pro fessor with the long white beard who could not get along at the bar so began teaching to the modern law professor who is interested in the advancement of the law pro fession and he added has a sense of That Colonel Bogert is of the modern school of thought might be surmised from the fact that he came here as a pinch hitter for the Honorable Charles M Hay of Washington D who was un able lo attend and sandwiched his talk into the morning session so that he might talk at Rochester Friday afternoon and then fly to Bloomington where he is scheduled for an address at the University of diana Saturday Suggests Improvements Colonel Bogert touched on sev eral movements for the improve ment of the profession in his re marks here He suggested im provement in legal education and suggested that Iowa change its requirement for admission to the bar He also suggested improve ments in the ethics of the fession by investigating character of students entering law courses and keeping records of them and by providing spon sors for each A suggestion was also made that the Iowa Bar association might also be interested in a survey of the economic status of the bar and the question of whether the public is getting adequate legal service Colonei Bogert attacked methods used in the publication of law books at needless expense and stated that the profession should cooperate in the matter of statute law Oppose Court Bill The association went on record Friday morning as unanimously opposing the supreme court re organization plan now before con nine one t ne from each congressjonal went on record as oppos amendment or compro on ;
