Judge Davis, and Fellow Members of the Bar: It is indeed very pleasing to see so many of you here and to have such a warm welcome from all of you. I have had the pleasure during the past three months of addressing a great many institutes on the Federal Rules, and it has really been a very stimulating privilege. I think up until last week I had addressed some 5,000 lawyers in different parts of the country, and as you can see, the number is steadily increasing. It has been most worthwhile to come in contact with lawyers all over the country and to see how really anxious they are to learn about the new procedure and how willing they are to reform their former ways of doing things in the Federal Courts.
