CHICAGO BUSINESS MEETING
Thursday, September 11, 1958
B. H. Weil, Chairman of the Division, presided at the
meeting and first called for reports of the officers
and of the Nominating Committee. The Treasurer, Virginia
Valeri, reported a total of 812 members of the
Division and 197 associates as of August 15, 1958.
Revenues for the year exceeded expenditures resulting
in a bank balance of approximately $2500.
The Secretary reported that the number of votes
cast for the Bylaws revision was disappointingly small,
as only 118 members voted. All suggested revisions
were approved by more than a majority of those voting,
so that application has been made to the American
Chemical Society for approval of their adoption by
The Chairman of the Nominating Committee, Erna
Graemse, announced the election of Karl Heumann,
Chairman-Elect; Fred Bassett, Treasurer; and Charles
Bernier, Member-at-Large of the Executive Committee.
Charles Zerwekh, Chairman of the Program Committee,
reported that a questionnaire is to be sent to
all members and associates requesting suggestions
for future programs. He made a special plea that
these questionnaires be filled out and returned.
Eleanor Marr suggested that more general papers be
given in the various fields of interest. It was also
pointed out that descriptions of specific solutions
to a problem were helpful, especially when more
general principles were not clear-cut.
There was considerable discussion regarding advertising
in Chemical Literature as a good source of
revenue for the Division. It is hoped that members
and associates will patronize the advertisers whenever
possible. Harriet Geer, Secretary.
