If Frank Holman [a Washington State attorney and previous presidento of the American Bar Association] has added to my burden in one respect, he has lightened it in another. He has given me a point of departure for my talk today. During his year as President of the American Bar Association he never hesitated to speak out boldly on the problems of the day, even though many of these problems were controversial in nature. In thus speaking out, he was fulfilling his highest duty, not only as President of our Association, but also as an American lawyer. The rest of us should follow his example. I hope to do so.
