According to Chemical and Engineering News (April 20,
1953), "Battelle Institute is establishing a technological
information service aimed at assisting science and
industry in streamlining the job of tapping existing published
knowledge. The service, tailored to meet individual
needs, will include preparation of bibliographies,
coding and classification systems, and the development
of information processing equipment. Machine systems
used by the service will be standard business machine
punch card equipment, xeroadiography, microfilming, and
pertinent electronic devices. For information, write Robert
C. McMaster, Battelle Memorial Institute, 505 King
Ave., Columbus, Ohio."

Also reported in C&EN (February 2, 1953, p. 402) was
the announcement that "UNESCO will assist in the development
and improvement of scientific documentation
and standardization of terminology. One specific project
to be carried out over the next two years will be to compile
a translation of medical abstracts. The medical
sciences council will do the work. Other projects will
consist of preparing a handbook telling how to compile
special dictionaries and a multilingual technical dictionary
for certain fields of engineering. The International
Engineering Union will handle the latter project."

Of interest to chemical market researchers is a new
service offered by Foster D. Snell, Inc., publishers since
1950 of the monthly Chemical Market Report, which contains
annotations on articles and new items relating to
chemicals and chemical economics. Subscriptions to
this publication cost $180 per year, so, in order to
broaden its service to those who cannot afford this,
Snell is now offering, for $25 per search, to send abstracts
of all material published on a single chemical
since February, 1950. These CMR File Summaries are in
the form of copies of pages from the Chemical Market
Report which contain the pertinent references.

Those interested in clear writing will not want to miss
two recent nonmathematical articles on the subject:
"Literature by Slide Rule," by Stephen E. Fitzgerald
(The Saturday Review, February 14, 1953, pp. 15, 16,
53), in which the author points out succinctly that "brevity
does not necessarily equate with clarity"; and "Good
Writing for Good Business," by Harry Simmons (Systems
Magazine, January, 1953, pp. 24, 25), in which are tabu
