At the 1915 meeting of the Missouri Bar Association, the committee on judicial administration and legal procedure recommended "that the matter of making rules for the government of civil practice in the trial courts be delegated to the Supreme Court." A similar recommendation was made by the committee on judicial administration and remedial procedure in 1912, and by a special committee on judicial administration and legal procedure in 1913. The proposal was approved by the Missouri Bar Association in 1913 after a long debate, and it was vigorously advocated by the president of the Association in his annual address in 1914. To lawyers now long accustomed to the regulation of the minutest details of judicial procedure by statute, the proposal may seem somewhat radical, but the history of procedure in Missouri would seem to show that it would only, enlarge a power which the courts have long exercised.
