TENTATIVE PLANS DRAWN FOR 1951
Continued from Page One
CHEMI CAL NOMENCLATURE
The symposium on chemical nomenclature, the
first of those being planned for the Fall, 1951,
meeting, is being organized by Austin M. Patterson
(221 N. King St., Xenia, Ohio). The scope of the
proposed program is being planned to be somewhat
broader than the title might indicate. Plans call
for the inclusion of papers on chemical terminology
as well as, those on naming of individual compounds.
The relationship between nomenclature
and terminology on the one hand and methods for
coding, classifying, and indexing on the other
will also come up for consideration. Three halfday
sessions will probably be devoted to this
symposium, on which-as for other programs at
this meeting-it is hoped that overseas guests
will appear as speakers.
COMMUNICATION OF CHEMICAL INFORMATION
This symposium, which is being organized by
Robert S. Casey (W.A. Sheaffer Pen Company, Fort
Madison, Iowa), will stress the international
aspects of chemical communication and should
prove an excellent supplement to the symposium
on chemical nomenclature. One or two half-day
session will be devoted to its presentation.
MECHANICAL AIDS TO CHEMICAL DOCUMENTATION
Under the chairmanship of J.W. Perry (Room
14-S312, Massachusetts Institute Of Technology,
Cambridge 39), this program will be directed to
the summarization of the present state of development
of the art of using automatic and semiautomatic
equipment for searching and correlating
chemical information. It is believed that
the Division's overseas guests will be particularly

interested in the progress which has been made
in this country in recent years. A half-day ses
sion is being planned.
Members of the Division are urged to volunteers
papers for inclusion in these symposia or on sub.
jectS for the general sessions.
DISSEMINATION OF DATA
ON NEW CHEMICALS
Under the sponsorship of the Chemical Marketing!
Subdivision of the Division of Industrial and.
Engineering Chemistry, a symposium on the dissemination
of technical information relating to
new chemical products will be held on Tuesday,
September 5, at the ACS Fall Meeting in Chicago
unfortunately at the same time as sessions o
the Division of Chemical Literature.
While the program of this chemical marketing
symposium may be found in full on page 2678 of
the August 7, 1950, issue of Chemical and Engi,neering
News, the following description of its
purpose by its chairman, M.H. Baker, may be of
"The purpose of this symposium is to discuss
the extremely important part which the exchange
of information plays in the development of ne
chemicals for industry. Discussions will be hel
on the interpretation of laboratory literatur
into technical data sheets and the determination
of how much material should be presented to industry,
including advertising and brochures,
etc., plus field contacts and the like. We will
also discuss the need for information on the part
of the small companies, the management of the
company involved in developing the product, the
sales group, the advertising group, and others
generally inside the developing company, plus the
publications, potential users, etc., outside the

Sidney D. Kirkpatrick has become Editorial Director of both Food Industries and
Chemical Engineering, while John R. Callaham has become Editor of the latter
journal. . . . And a recent news story has it that McGraw-Hill has purchased the
journal Chemical Industries and may, according to rumor, change it to a weekly.
Construction has begun at Wayne University of the new Kresge Science Library which
will house, among other science materials, the famed Kresge-Hooker Scientific
Library. . . . The New York Chapter of the Special Libraries Association has published
the fifth edition of its Special Libraries Directory of Greater New York,
