EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE continued.
member of that committee has been assigned several
divisions for liaison. An information petition will be
submitted to Council requesting $1. 00 for each duespaying
member whose division participates in a national
meeting. About six million dollars is poured into national
meetings as a result of registration fees alone.
Councilors Ginsberg and Bowman asked the
Executive Committee for instructions for the Council
meeting. The Committee urged them to use their own
best judgment in voting. Many of the points discussed
at the D. O. C. will come up for consideration at Council.
Until the proposed Professional Relations Division has
presented a tentative program, there will be no need to
vote about its admission to full divisional status.
In line with the recommendation made at the
D. O.C., the Executive Committee passed a motion that
DCL recognize emeritus and retired members in the
same way as the national ACS, inviting them to remain
members of the Division without paying dues. This action
will be written as a proposed amendment to the
In Dr. Frederic Benson's absence, Mr. Ralph
O'Dette presented the report of the Nominating Committee.
The slate of candidates is: for Chairman-Elect,
Stuart M. Kaback and James E. Rush; Secretary, Charles
E. Granito and Ray W. Ihndris; Assistant Secretary,
Margaret K. Park and Mary Jane Ruhl; Councilor, Helen
F. Ginsberg and Ben H. Weil.
The Executive Committee discussed the desirability
of having Councilors remain in office for more than
one term, so that they could become better known and
more active in the Council. Dr. Helen Ginsberg, whose
term ends this year, is a member of the Council Publications
Committee, and it would be desirable to have
her continue to function on that committee. After some
discussion, however, the Committee came to the conclusion
that there is no democratic way to promote the
re-election of Councilors; in fact, some local sections
have been criticized for the practice of keeping Councilors
in office for multiple terms. The most we should
do to promote longer terms for Councilors is to mention
the Council activity in the biographies of incumbents
who are running for re-election, letting the members
take this into account in voting.
The final report of the Awards Committee was
received. In view of the establishment of the E. J.
Crane Award by the ACS Board, the committee recommended
that DCL not sponsor an award for work in
chemical literature; that DCL establish a committee
whose function would be to solicit and assemble information
in order to make nominations for the Society's
Crane Award and the Dayton Section's Patterson Award;
that DCL volunteer to help administer the Crane Award.
