I am not attempting here to give you a complete
report on Division activities. Reports of officers and
committee chairmen will be presented at the Spring
meeting-which I hope many of you will attend-and will
be summarized in the next issue of Chemical Literature.
I would like to remind you, however, that all our officers
and committees are doing, to the best of their abilities,
only what they believe you want them to do. If there
are misunderstandings about your wishes concerning
the activities and aims of this Division, I hope you
will let me know.
I would also be glad to hear from any Division
member who would like to be more active in Division
affairs. Our present committees would welcome more
workers with fresh ideas; new projects can only be
undertaken if there are enough willing people interested
in carrying them out; and quite soon we shall be electing
new officers for 1960. Please remember that the
Nominating Committee and other committee chairmen
cannot read your minds. If you are concerned about this
Division and would like to do your share in shaping
its future, please volunteer your services.
Elsewhere in this bulletin you will find the
program for the Spring meeting, to be held in Boston.
It is a shorter program than any we have held in recent
years-in response to the expressed desire of some
Division members, and also an appeal from the A.C.S.
for shorter programs by all Divisions; the length of
future programs will, of course, depend on the number of
worthwhile papers submitted and the available space
in the convention city.
I would like to emphasize, however, that there
is always room on our program for the author who has
something new to say on any aspect of chemical documentation.
If you have found a new way of retrieving
or communicating chemical information, or a new
approach (practical or theoretical) to an old problem
in this field- do let the program committee know about it.
If you don't have enough data for a full-length paper,
perhaps your idea is suitable for a discussion together
with other people's related ideas. The Division of
Chemical Literature should be the place where you
can sound out your problems and ideas and sometimes
get a fresh approach through discussion with others.
If you don't feel that this is so, the Division is failing
in one of its most important functions.
Having thus ground all my favorite axes, it
only remains for me to bid you welcome to Boston.
Your colleagues of the Northeastern Section look forward
to seeing you and hope that you will enjoy your visit.
See you in April!
