NOTE. The two appendices submitted with the report are omitted. They consist of the following:

1. A Vital Statistics Bill for the Consideration of State Legislatures approved by the American Medical Association and the Division of Vital Statistics of the United States Bureau of the Census, being a pamphlet of 26 pages which can be obtained by sending a two-cent stamp or addressed envelope to the Bureau of Medical Legislation, American Medical Association, 103 Dearborn Ave., Chicago.

2. The Bulletin of the U. S. Census Bureau, S. N. D. North, Director, on the Legal Importance of Registration of Births, being a pamphlet of 32 pages, of which the last 10 pages are a reprint of portions of the committee's report in 1907 (see A. B. A. Reports, Vol. XXXI, p. 1223).


By order of the Executive Committee, the following prices have been fixed for the reports; they are about sufficient to pay the cost of printing and postage.

Vol. 1 (1878), postpaid, paper, 50 cents; cloth, 75 cents.

Vols. 2 to 26 (1879 to 1903), postpaid, paper, 75 cents each; cloth, $1.00 each.

Vols. 27 and 28 (1904 and 1905), postpaid, paper, $1.00 each; cloth, $1.25 each.

Vol. 29 (1906, Part 1) (American Bar Association Proceedings, only), postpaid, paper, 75 cents each; cloth, $1.00 each. Vol. 30 (1906, Part 2) (Proceedings of Sections, Association of American Law Schools, Uniform State Laws), postpaid, paper, 50 cents each; cloth, 75 cents each.

Vol. 31 (1907), postpaid, paper, $1.00; cloth, $1.25.

Vol. 32 (Sharswood's Ethics) will not be sold, but will be furnished without charge, if requested, with Vol. 31, as long as the supply lasts.

Vol. 33 (1908), postpaid, paper, $1.00; cloth, $1.25.
Complete set to date, Vols. 1 to 33, paper, $24.00; cloth, $32.00.

Each member of the Association will receive, as soon as published, and without cost to him, one copy of the proceedings for each year of his membership. A bound copy will be sent, unless the Secretary is otherwise directed. Members desiring extra copies, and new members desiring back reports, will be charged the above prices.

The great number of applications for sets of reports from libraries and educational institutions, and the small number of copies of many of the volumes on hand, render it necessary to restrict the furnishing of complete sets to those Bar libraries and other general libraries in which the reports will be of most use. Applications should state the size and character of the library and the class of readers using it; and also what volumes (if any) are already on hand. When such applications can be granted, the reports will be furnished to libraries without expense other than postage or express charges.

The reports will be published each year about February 1. JOHN HINKLEY, Secretary. 215, North Charles Street, Baltimore, Md.
