FUTURE PROGRAMS WELL IN HAND
Boston-the home of the bean and the cod-is to
be our meeting place next Spring. On that occasion,
as already, announced in the Fall number of
Chemical Literature, we are scheduling two
symposia: "Evolution of the Chemical Patent"
(Symposium Chairman: Mrs. G.A. Munafo, The
Texaco Development Corp., 135 E. 42nd Street,
New York 16), and "Abstract Services" (Symposium
Chairman: Dr. Eugene Scott, Interdepartmental
Committee on Scientific Research and Development,
Atomic Energy Commission, Washington,
D.C.). The organization of these symposia is in
an advanced stage; incidentally, the ACS Committee
on Patents will co-sponsor the symposium
An added attraction will be a round-table
discussion on "Library Chemists and Chemical
Librarians", being arranged by T.E.R. Singer,
535 Fifth Avenue, New York, New York. We literature
chemists have frequent occasion to cooperate
with members of the library profession. In this
respect we are in much the same position as
chemists doing experimental research who have
frequent occasion for cooperation with patent
lawyers, or chemists with management responsibilities
who work with accountants. The purpose
of the round-table discussion being organized
by Mr. Singer is to contribute to harmonious
and effective cooperation between the chemical
and library professions. It is hoped that this
program may also contribute-if that be necessary-to
a better understanding of the role
which a literature chemist may play on the
modern chemical research team. By suggesting to
Mr, Singer topics for consideration at this
round table, you can help to make the discussion
lively, enlightening and profitable.
At the following Fall meeting, in New York,
the American Chemical Society will celebrate
its Diamond Jubilee and will be host to the
International Union of Pure and Applied ChemContinued

THE SECOND YEAR
Chemical Literature was born one year ago, with
the Winter issue for 1949. It has now apparently
been accepted as a desirable serviceto members
of the Division of Chemical Literature, and
its continued publication seems assured, especially
if more members are obtained, if Division
members and associates pay their dues, and if
the present program for obtaining advertisements
meets with success. Your help in all of these
measures is earnestly solicited.
Since your editor has recently changed positions,
he can now voice, for himself and for
the Division, an unbiased and sincere vote of
thanks to the Georgia Tech Engineering Experiment
Station for its invaluable assistance in
the establishment of this bulletin. Had it not
been for the encouragement and very concrete
financial help of this organization, in permitting
the staff of its Technical Information Division
to edit, type, Vari-Type, and address each issue,
and to obtain the necessary work material and
