"Dynamics of Patent Practice"; Pike H. Sullivan's
paper on "Chemical Patent Practice" will discuss
the "hypertechnical attitude of the Patent
Office"; and Earl P. Stevenson and Frank N.
Houghton will present "Suggestions for Improvements
in Patent Office Practices in the Handling
of Chemical Patent Applications."
ABSTRACTING AND INDEXING SERVICES
Wednesday's symposium on "Abstracting and Indexing
Services" will find Eugene W. Scott presiding

can look forward to a busy and informative meeting.
THE YEAR AHEAD
Continued from Page One
have provided the basis for two books to be
published during the year - one on punched
cards (Reinhold) and the other on literature
searching (ACS Advances in Chemistry Series).
Members of the Division have recently received
a complete bibliography of all papers presented
before our Division.
A recently organized committee is studying
the question of maintaining and improving the
quality of papers presented before our Division.
A study on the use of chemical literature has
been initiated. Other projects are under consideration.
All of this activity requires close cooperation
between a large number of people. A report
on the organization of our Division will be submitted
to the membership in the near future. It
is hoped that this report will stimulate even
more Division members and associates to active
participation in Division activities.

As noted in the Winter, 1950, issue, the Executive
Committee of the Division of Chemical Literature,
at the Fall ACS Meeting, approved the
carrying of advertisements in CHEMICAL LITERA7URE.
A few appeared in the Winter, 1950, issue,
and several are included in this issue. The
revenue obtained will help to establish this
publication on a firm basis and will enable it,
eventually, to expand its services. Through this
issue, your editor has also served as advertising
manager, a position which will now be assumed
by John C. Lane.
Information on advertising notes and deadlines
will gladly be provided; we certainly would
appreciate your help in obtaining advertisers
who can benefit from access to our specialized
audience. Address all inquires to: Mr. John C.
Lane, CHEMIC4L LIERAIURE, Georgia Tech Engineering
Experiment Station, 225 North Avenue, N.W.,
Chemical literature workers, accustomed to speaking
glibly and accurately of "primary" literature
and "secondary" publications, had their
vocabularies further enriched last fall when
Chairman-Elect Julian F. Smith referred to the
Division's efforts in regard to "tertiary" publications
("literature about chemical literature")
Here’s what’s next.
