Dr. Broome, Chairman of the Bylaws Committee,
presented a detailed report onthe proposed amendments.
The amendment permitting reduction of dues
for members with emeritus status should be announced
in the ACS news section of C & E N. The Committee's

the report given at the spring meeting, emphasizing

in the early future. The question was asked: "Does
DCL want to plan a Gordon Research-type conference?"
Bart Holm recommended against this approach. Though
