SPRING MEETING PROGRAM
HAS WIDE APPEAL
Symposia on "The Evolution of a Patent" and "Abstracting
and Indexing Services" plus a panel
discussion on "Literature Chemists and Chemical
Librarians," added to general papers on such
subjects as research reports and literature summaries,
all combine to indicate that the Division
of Chemical Literature will present a well rounded
program, guaranteed to appeal to a large
group, at its Boston meeting, April 2-4.
Highlighting the first day's program will be
the panel discussion on "Literature Chemists and
Chemical Librarians," with T. E. R. Singer as
moderator. Irene M. Strieby will describe "The
Chemistry Librarian in Industry"; Mary Alexander
will present "A Brief Description of Tasks Requiring
the Services of Literature Chemists";
K. D. Metcalf will discuss "Abstracting and
Indexing Services"; and Eugene W. Scott will
deal with the "Literature Search: A Cooperative
Undertaking of Literature Chemists and Chemical
Much unnecessary acrimony has accompanied recent
attempts to define the boundaries of the
definitions of 'literature chemist" and chemical
librarian." This panel discussion, which
will be thrown open for participation from the
audience, should do much to clarify aspects of
the roles of both closely linked professions.
Eight papers on phases of "The Evolution of a
Patent" will follow the remarks of Gertrude A.
Munafo, who will preside Tuesday morning at this
symposium. Invention record procedures will be
discussed by Harold S. Meyer, who will be followed
by Herbert J. Krase's discussion of some
of the legal and practical aspects of the activities
occurring in the interval between the
idea and the patent. Guy R. M. del Giudice will
describe "The American Research Team: The Research
Worker and the Patent Attorney"; R. F.
Phillips will present "Processing Patent Suggestions
in the Fine Chemical Industry"; and
Benjamin E. Lanham (of the U. S. Patent Office)

THE YEAR AHEAD
J. W. PERRY, Chairman
The coming year is certain to be an exceptionally
busy one for all of us. The international
situation is making unusual demands - more
money for taxes, greater effort at our jobs,
higher efficiency in accomplishing them.
The task facing American chemists is an imposing
one. As members of the research and production
team, literature chemists will need to
perform their work with increased skill and
efficiency. Your Division of Chemical Literature
is striving to sustain and advance your
professional activity. Programs planned for the
coming year will consider such important matters
as abstracting techniques and abstracting services,
the preparation and prosecution of patents,
nomenclature in all its ramifications,
various problems in communicating chemical information,
and the latest mechanical aids to
documentation. Past programs of our Division
