Washington Law Review


I always enjoy coming here, because it brings me back to the delightful days when I had a chance to associate with you more intimately. I am glad to be here today to express my thanks to the Bar Association of this State for the excellent cooperation that I have had, while serving as your Governor, in the matter of filling vacancies in our Judicial positions. While there were some contests in that area, at the present time, in the main, the people have expressed extreme confidence in your recommendations and there has been little opposition of many of the posts that have been filled. I feel that with your help the Bench has been strengthened and that we can continue to improve our administration of justice and our techniques in the judicial end of our businesses to the extent that the people of the State will benefit.
