Indian Law conference set
On October 17-18. 1997. North
western School of Law of Lewis &
Clurk College and the Indian Law
Section of (he Oregon State Bar will
host an Indian law conference of
considerable significance. Inspired
by the lOlh anniversary of the 1987
book by Charles F. Wilkinson,
American Indians. Time, and the
Law, the conference will focus on
the status of tribal sovereignty. In his
book, Professor Wilkinson provided
a spirited defense of tribal sover
eignty and the status of tribes as
separate governmental and tento
rial entities in the U.S. constitutional
system. Based on a detail study of
Supreme Court decisions, he con
cluded that tribes had achieved at
least some stability in their "historic
task of creating workable islands of
Inianncss within the larger society."
Professor Wilkinson, the Moses
Lasky Professor of the Law at the
university of Colorado, will be the
featured speaker at the October con
ference. He and other notable schol
ars and practitioners in the Indian
law field will explore judicial and
legislative developments over the last
ten years to assess the current status
of tribal sovereignty. On the first
day, speakers will address such top
at (503) 768-6672.

The Oregon SAFE KIDS Coali
tion is joining Dee, Jackie and Jana
Norton of Seattle to promote the use
of rear crossview mirrors. Driven by
the tragic loss of three-year-old C.J.,
who ws killed two years ago by a

parking lot of his parent's apartment
complex, the Nortons have waged a
campaign to make positive changes
to prevent other families from similar
misfortune. The Coalition is appeal

stories and experiences to contact the
Norton's to join them in their efforts
to reduce injuries and death. The

when backing up in a residential area

Crossview Mirrors are about ten
inches in diameter, convex, and
mounted on the top left rear corner of
the box portion of trucks up to eigh-teen-feet
long. When purchased in
volume the cost is $30 - $50 installed
on newly built trucks. During 1984,
in four major cities, Federal Express
installed rear crossview mirrors on
its entire fleet of deliver trucks. After
one year the company discovered a
33 percent reduction in backing inci
dents. Compared to the millions of
dollars paid annually to victims of
backing service truck incidents, they
have a very positive cost-benefit ra
tio. Armed with this information the
