Lee Roy E3. Keeley, attorney, whose
long continued fight for admission to
practice In th court of Oregon eemed
about to be concluded successfully, died
Sunday at his Portland home after
suffering for some' time from diabetes.
Keeley' turbulent career In Oregon
was marked by a stiff fight against the
Industrial accident commission tn en
forcing the workmen's compensation
law and by his futile libel suits against
two Portland newspapers.

Sid .Funeral Director and will be
shipped te Gleariche, Pa.. late thia after
noon. No . services will be held her.
Keeley was 35 year old and came here
from California several years ago. R.
C. Keeley, a brother, took charge of
the body here.
Belated action on Keeley's requests
tor a legal license was tiled tn the su
preme court this morning, when recom
mendation was made by th board of
examiners of th State Bar association
that Keeley be admitted ta practice. He
was refused the right' to practice fol
lowing charges brought by the associa
tion because ef his tactics in handling
the case of Mr Blanche Dfbbern. When
his temporary license expired the high
court refused either to renew It or to
formally admit him.
Keeley filed a mandamus action 1r
the federal court to compel the state
Justices to Issue him a certificate and
this was carried to the supreme court of
the United States, which decided ad
versely two weeks ago.
In his last application for admission
to the bar, filed last November, Keeley
admitted the errors of the experiences
upon which he waa debarred from prac
tice and asked for a reconsideration- of
his case. The committee which today
recommended his admission consisted
of Oscar Hayter. Roeeoe IV Nelson,
George A. Pipes and Thomas B. Green.
