Chairman Smith stated the opinion of the committee:
A member of The Florida Bar states that a federal savings and loan
association has asked his firm to procure for display and distribution in its
building copies of The Florida Bar pamphlet entitled “Have You Made A Will?”.
The association wishes to make the pamphlet available to members of the public
who ask about problems relating to the preparation of wills.
This Committee is unanimously of the opinion that there would be nothing improper in
the firm securing the pamphlets as planned and nothing improper in the savings and loan
association displaying and distributing the pamphlets. The Committee, in fact, commends the
practice to members of the Bar.
