the meeting adjourned at 9:50 a.m.
The business meeting of the Division of Chemical
Literature convened at 4:10 p.m. on September 6,
1950 at the LaSalle Hotel in Chicago, Illinois,
Dr. E.J. Crane presiding.
Informal reports were made by the officers and
chairmen of committees, each of whom called for
questions and discussion of his activities from
Mr. M.P. Doss requested that the deliberations
of the Division's Executive Committee be reported
more fully to the members of the division. It
was agreed that such reports should be published
in Chemical Literature.
It was moved, seconded, and passed that a
message of condolence in the name of the Division
should be sent to Mrs. Spencer C. Stanford. On
motion, the meeting was then adjourned.
According to the official schedules for the
1951 meetings, titles for papers to be presented
at the Spring meeting were to be in the hands of
the secretary of each division before November
22, while abstracts must be submitted by January
26. The policy established by the Division of
Chemical Literature has been to have all titles
and abstracts for papers submitted to the appropriate
symposia chairmen (or chairman of the
Program Committee, for general papers), who in
turn transmit the approved schedules to the
To insure that the program for the Fall (Diamond
Jubilee) meeting reaches foreign chemists in time
for them to plan to attend the meetings, the
ACS has advanced its deadlines for papers for
the Fall meeting to March 2, 1951, for titles
and May 25, 1951, for abstracts; these are the
dates by which symposia chairmen must have the
appropriate material in the hands of the Division's
Prompt payment of 1951 dues-a form for which is
provided in this issue-will save the Division
the expense of follow-up letters. Pay now, and
avoid missing issues of Chemical Literature, etc.
Recently, 20 or 30 new members of the Division
failed to receive separates of the abstracts of
the Spring, 1950, meeting, because our supply
was exhausted. A small additional supply has
been located, and copies will be sent to those
who write to say that they did not receive them.
USES OF PERIODICALS
Dee Myatt, managing editor of Industrial and
Engineering Chemistry, has suggested to the
Division that it in some way sponsor or encourage
a study of the inner-organizational use of
scientific and technical journals, perhaps as
the basis for a program or paper for some future
meeting. Concrete knowledge on the extent of
use of journals in technical libraries-and of
the circulation given to journals obtained by
personal subscriptions-would be of real value
to libraries and individuals in gaging their
subscription programs, and could be useful tc
the journals themselves as a measure of effect
Mr. Myatt writes that "I could visualize such
a survey being carried out with very little fuss
if various members of the Division were willing
to obtain data on journal usage in their own
particular organizations." In order to deter'
mine whether or not such an approach is practical
and statistically useful, members of the Divisio4
