THURSDAY, MAY 2, 10-10 Among Perils Of An Explorer's Life COUNTER OTIWS Aclivilies Of New Rules Committee Highii % h t s Year's Reports UTTU: flOCK, Ark., May 2 <UP)— Members of the legal profession will have a feeling of victory when they assemble in Hut Springs for Ihe annual convention of ths> Atkansns liar Association May :!--! and look back upon the positive results obtained in (He liist year or the "house denning" piograrn for which the association fought for so many years. The new Bar Rules Committee, created by the Slate Supreme 1 Court to carry out a constitutional amendment sponsored by the association, has lost no lime in go- ins about, its job of cleansing the profession of its unethical members. One attorney has been disbarred, another 1ms been found guilty ol unprofessional conduct, with sentence pi-tiding, and 20 formal complaints are under consideration by the tinr Rules Committee, which has the authority to prosecute in ttio courts whenever it, is deemed necessary. Several attorneys have been brought before the bench in federal courts for- unprofessional conduct in what may be considered tile' indirect result of activities of the new committee. "These figures tell only part of the story of the committee's work." said Secretary J. Mitchell Cockrill. "There's no way of showing' in black and while tlie number of attorneys who have set their own houses in order and stopped questionable practices because the Bar Rules Committee has made it clear > such practices will not be tolci-at- Thc movement for an Integrated bar iti Arkansas was started several years ago by a group of Ihe slate's leading barristers, who saw that if they did not take steps toward self-regulation, ail the members of ibe profession would suffer from the wrong-doing of n few. They met with all the obstacles that customarily block the paths ol reform groups. Legislators, either fearful of losing votes, or suspicious of some ulterior motive, refused to pass laws lhat would give the bar the necessary authority . to regulate its members. Hut the attorneys did not give up and finally, by .carrying the issue directly to Ihe people through n referendum, obtained what they sought. ,,,.., , E , , Back in" 1935 the Arkansas Bar Association nt its nmiitl convention named a committee to draft an integrated bar bill and at the 1931! convention Ihe association approved the draft of the proposed measure, voting to sponsor it in the 1937 legislature. The legislature turned thumbs down on (he measure. So Hie bar, at its meeting the following year, decided lo put the matter squarely up lo the voters in the 1939 general election in the form of an amendment to the slate coiislilu- tlon. Attorneys personally circulated petitions to obtain enough signatures lo place an amendment on , Ihe ballot. They went before civic groups and clubs of all kinds to explain the measure and urge people lo give li their approval. And when the election returns were in it was found that Ihe Manila's Woman Marhcr And KJII-IHT Husband Work, Play her MANILA. All;.. May '.!,.

The amendment, is the shortest, ever adopted in Arkansas. H merely says: "The Supreme Court shall make rules regulating the praclice of law and professional conduct, of ultorncy.s-al-luw." Had the amendment never been passed, the stale's high tribunal, if it hat! so desired, could have made these rules. Tiie .supreme court justices, however, fulled to assume this authority until they were directed Ki clci so by tlie definite mandate from the people. On April 23, 1939, the cowl adopted the cannons of ethics ol (lie American Bar Association as the standard of professional conduct of attorneys and provided for disciplining any attorneys who violated these cannons. H set up Ihe Bar fiiile.s Com- miltee and gave it authority to prosecute offenders through the courts; it assessed a fee of one dollar per year on all attorneys to pay (he committee's expenses; and it provided thai attorneys who refused lo pay the fee should be denied (lie right to practice in state courts. The 13ar Rules Committee is composed of one member from each of the slate's congressional districts. The present committee includes Ernest. Neill, Batesville. chairman;- Cockrill, secretary; Charles D. Frlersnn, Jonesboro; A. L>. Smith, Siloam Springs; John I'. Woods, Foil Smith; A. J. Johnson Star City; and O. A. Graves. Hope, omcials emphasize Hint the com-i mitlee is not a part or the bar) association but, is considered an "arm" or the Supreme Court. ConipJninls or charges against, attorneys may be liled in affidavit form with any member of the committee, which holds regular meetings in Die Supreme Court chambers. As its first, step llic committee considers these complaints .\nd decides whether they are worthy oi investigation. Secretary Cockrill said some of the complaints received were unreasonable and others Involved only minor matters not involvl:i;; the question of unprofessional conduct. These arc tiled away without further action by Ihe committee. lint when a complaint appears to be justified, a copy of the evidence is sent by registered mtiil lo the person chRrged and he Is Instructed to attend a hearing- before the committee at which the complaining witness also is present. It Hie committee at -this hearing (Hills Ihe charges againsL the attorney should be prosecuted, it lias authority lo Institute disbarment, proi-cedliigs in cither circuit or chancery courts. Every effort is made to protect attorneys from injustices in the { mailer of complaints. The com-' Hilltre proceedings arc kept nb- solutely secret mull charges nre filed In court. The liar Rules Gom- miilec secretary recalled ouc case in which n complaint, vi-ns filed against a prominent attorney ami when Ihe committee met lo lake up (he case it was found llml Ihe complainant. \ras a patient, in th e insane asylum. The regulatory committee plans to steadily broaden its activities lo rentier more service to the profession. "Of course we. will always have a few shysters with us, as Is iruc of every other profession, but the new program will go n long vvny toward protecting the people froiii legal racketeers," Cockrill declared. ft has been estimated Hint approximately one-linlf of the fishermen of the world are Japanese. ku-'.siis.
