ASIS is interested in taking over the publishing
of ISA. This might be acceptable to DCL provided
it did not lose the present benefits, which
are: member discounts; publicity on the masthead;
and a voice in policy through its representation
by two board members. Details of ASIS plans were
lacking, and Conrad will investigate further.
Peter Sorter has replaced Lee Starker on the ISA
board as a DCL representative.
Conflicts with CAS were noted--the Open
Forum was scheduled at the same time as the Executive
Committee meeting. Better communication
with CAS was urged, though formal links were
frowned on. Plans were made for possible rescheduling
of the Chicago Executive Committee meeting
if it were to conflict with CAS (that conflict
has evaporated--CAS will have the Open Forum on
ACS will handle dues billing for members and
affiliates in the future, and a reinvestigation of
the duties of the Assistant Secretary is in order.
Kaback will look into this and report in Chicago.
The League of Arab States Industrial Development
Center had asked for assistance in establishing
a documentation center. Broome had informed
them that DCL was unable to help.
ACS had requested Divisions to prepare brochures
of information for those who request additional
information as a result of the brief descriptions
in the overall ACS brochure on the
divisions. Gelberg will handle this.

The Council of Communications Societies invited
DCL to join them. Joining would involve
payment of $200 dues, and the plans of the Council
include the publication of a competitor to
ISA and other duplicative efforts. The request
was turned down.
There was a program committee report. Preliminary
program plans were published in C&EN
(7/20/70). Planned programs appear on page 8
of this issue of Chemical Literature.
ACS ANNOUNCES NEW PUBLICATION
The ACS recently announced plans to publish a
new journal aimed at the 100,000 plus industrial
chemists in the U.S. and abroad. The journal,
called Chemical Technology, will be more a current
awareness magazine than an archival journal. It
