POUND NAMED CHAIRMAN OF AMERICAN BAR GROUP

SEVERE CRITIC OF ROOSEVELT PLAN TO PACK COURT

Roscoe Pound '90, former Dean of the Law School, has been appointed chairman of the American Bar Association's committee on administrative law by Arthur T. Vanderbilt, it was reported yesterday.

Now giving his course in Jurisprudence at the Law School, Roscoe Pound resigned as Dean of the Law School in the fall of 1935. Last fall he left on a round the world cruise, returning this spring. In March of this year it was learned that Pound had been named as the first "University professor" of the Lamont endowment.

An authority on administrative law, Pound was one of the severest critics of President Roosevelt's plan to pack the Supreme Court. He has consistently expressed resentment of what he terms the attempts of the Administration's attack on laws.
