Dewey of New York lead to defeat in November. 1948, needs a thorough leadership housecleaning. Opposition to present parly lenders apparently extends from GOP National Chairman Hugh D. Scott, Jr., on down the line. In fact, the convention though so little of what it culled the "financially wasteful, essentially uncooperative and generally useless" policies of Ren Whitehurst.

Many individual delegates: salt! as each issue arose that "if the Republican National Committee was for It. they were apMnst it." Scott did't fire well in the matter of the new chairman's selection.

The principal change Is In the requirement that all candidates pa-ss a bar examination. At present, graduates of the state's two aw schools, the University ol Arkansas Law School at Payetteville. and the Arkansas Law School at Little Rock, are enrolled without examination. The new rules do not prohibit (he time-honored practice of "reaping taw" In a private law office. Such students must spend four years of full-time study In a private office after registration with the state board. Upon completion of the four years of study, they, too, must pass the bar examination The new rules provide, however, that in the case of any veteran of World War II whose education was interrupted, the stale board shall have the light until July 1, 1952. to waive the new academic and legal study requirements and permit him to take the bar examination.
