PLEASE NOTE THAT THE BAR CANNOT DENY WHAT APPEARS BELOW Lawyers Discuss Subjects Vital To Profession Unauthorized Law Practice By Lay Groups SALT LAKE CITY—In the public end professions! interest bar ! officials throughout the nation are uniting their efforts to bring 1 to public attention the dangers of unauthorized practice of the ( law by numerous lay organizations, lawyers from seven western states were informed Saturday. In an address titled "Organizing the Bar for Effective Action," Win. L. Murphey of Los Angeles •dM lawyers and judges attending an American Bar Association symposium on Unauthorized Practice of the Law at the Hotel | Utah Chet more than a dozen organizations are presently engaged ( Is the unauthorised law practice.

BOt. MURPHEY, chairman for ten years of the State Bar of California’s Unauthorized Practice of Law Committee, said that when state and local bar association unauthorized practice of law committees act to correct such practices by lay groups they should emphasize that they are doing so in the public interest. "Actually, the more crackpot law practiced by lay persons, the more business and money for the lawyer in handling the litigation which almost invariably results. It makes no more sense for a person to jeopardize his money and property by having an un qualified person handle a legal transaction for him than it does for him to engage a layman instead of a doctor to treat him when he is sick," he said. Murphey said the best way he has found to combat unauthorized practice is to have an integrated bar. a strong committee of dedi cated lawyers armed with the authority to institute civil and criminal proceedings against unqualified persons who attempt to. serve the public, and to obtain the cooperation and support of lawyers and the public in reporting infractions. , "In some States there are literally hoards of laymen in par ticular business fields, which are of great interest and concern to our problem of unauthorized practice of law." he said. "In California there are more than 100.000 notaries public; 125.389 licensed real estate brokers and salesmen; 800 licensed collection agencies; and 120.000 insurance agents and brokers. The task of educating these groups to what constitutes the unauthorized prac tice of law in their field, and to process infractions, is well-nigh insurmountable “The American Bar Association stands ready to help you in any 1 and every way we can." Murphey said. "Let's all work together toward a solution to this problem " Real Estate Brokers Urge A "YES” Vote For 103 VOTE\X 103-YES 103 YES COMMITTEE: Stewart M.

SALT LAKE CITY-The legal 'profession throughout America is suffering from an occupational disease economic anemia and like any good patient is doing; J something constructive about it-! The American Bar Association* has established the existence of ; the disease and through its special Committee on Economics of Law * Practice is assisting state and i local bar associations in taking | steps to raise the economic stand ards of the profession, Gerald C. | I Snyder of Waukegan. Illinois, told | I lawyers attending a seminar on bar activities held in connection [with the ABA Rocky Mountain) j regional meeting at the Hotel; 'Utah. I "One of the symptoms of thisl disease is a lack of appreciation .of the importance and dignity of I the legal profession. Another J symptom is the misguided notion that there is something noble in disregarding fair compensation when fixing fees, and that the lawyer is being generous by mak ing wholly inadequate charges for professional services." Snyder ■said. I | THE FORMER president of the Illinois c ,tate Bar Association who presently is serving as a member of th* Executive Council of the National Conference of the Bar ! Presidents, said the disease had I been contracted during the past 25 years and has drastically low ered the annual income of prac ! ticing lawyers. i i "A survey by the US. Depart ■ ment of Commerce discloses that | 11 1 be percentage of the National; i income spent for legal services; !has dwindled to about one-third |lof what it was 25 years ago.”i He pointed out that a review, 1 of almost any other profession or | business would reveal just how backward the legal profession is iwhen it comes to securing a just and reasonable compensation for its services. i "Each of you is fully familiar with the difference in educational requirements to permit a man' to practice law or to conduct a! real estate business. Yet. look at the fee schedule the real estate, man has! Puzzling Figures Where you live may affect your health. A recent Public Health Service survey, for ex ample, shows that lung cancer death rates vary rharply be tween cities. For white men, the New Orleans rate is 100% above the national average; Lima, Ohio is 60% below. * * :i: * * "IN OUR community it used to ( be that automatically, he was; given a five percent commission. That five percent commission wasi expected. Recently, the commis- 1 sion was raised to six per-' cent. 1 The six percent was ac cepted. And yet. the lawyer whoj calls into play' his professional; prestige, with his background of education and experience, is lucky if he gets one percent! "Our profession should take a' good long look at .our methods ot charging and determine whether! we are downgrading an honorable profession by an insufficient! charge." | Mr. Snyder observed that de-. jspite a large population increase! lin the past 25 years and billions; of dollars of increase in total j I national product, there are fewer.; ; young men being attracted to law', j as a profession. "The reason fori I this loss of appeal is readily ap parent when the economic picture is considered." he declared. ! HE SAID that the occupational disease is not peculiar to any one area but is nation-wide. "The effort to raise the economic con dition of lawyers is no task for the timid. A quarter of a century of lethargy- has to be overcome'" r A four po.nt recovery program. successfully instituted by the Il linois State Bar Association in their efforts to of lawyers in that state, was out lined for possible use by other state and local bar groups throughguj^jjjg^ Proced- j |ures recommended werr 1. State and local bar associa tions should meet and draft defin ite plans to meet their particular needs and then appeal to the 'grass roots of the profession, the ! individual lawyer, for support. 2. Bar associations should pro jpare a comprehensive question jnaire to determine the. exact economic condition of lawyers fa their states. 3. An economic institute should be held to translate into construe , tive action the research, dlscus : sions, and efforts to alert the Bar to the inequity at its economic position. ! 4. A Bar Economics Depart ment also should be established ' to maintain the honor and dignity of the profession and Its economic independence. j Great Names In Music | MARGARET TVNES Margaret Tynes will long re member the tremendous ovation she received from opera goers at Milan, Italy.
