Society Bylaw Governing Papers
SIGN LEGIBLY HERE—:
Bylaw VI, Sec. 5, governs presentation of papers at Society meetings. The following rules shall apply to the presentation of papers at this meeting.
1. The term "paper" shall include any presentation for which the title and authors are listed on the program and which may be reduced to writing either prior to, during, or subsequent to the meeting at which presented. 2. No paper shall be presented at a national, regional, divisional, or other major meeting unless its title appears on the program for the meeting. 3. No paper by a chemist or chemical engineer residing in the United States who is not a Member of the Society shall appear on the program of a national, regional, divisional, or other major meeting of the Society unless it be a joint paper with one or more Society Members, or unless for a national meeting or a national-divisional symposium, it be a paper whose author has been invited to present it at a symposium organized by a Division of the Society and the chairman of such Division has certified to the Executive Secretary of the Society prior to publication of the program that presentation by the author of such paper is important to the success of the symposium. 4. The Society shall have first right to publish papers presented at national, regional, divisional, or other major meetings of the Society. However, after a paper has been accepted for a meeting program, the author may request its release either before or after its oral presentation. Under no circumstances shall release, if granted, permit publication before the oral presentation. Within fewer than 60 days after receiving a request for release (and the complete manuscript, if an Editor requests i t ) , the Society shall give the author a decision to release the paper or to accept it for publication subject to the usual editorial revision. Note. Requests' for release should be addressed to Miss Stella Anderson, Secretary, Committee of Editors, ACS Publications, 1155 Sixteenth St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036. 6. The Society assumes no responsibility for statements or opinions expressed by individuals in papers or discussions thereof. 7. The President shall have authority to exclude any paper from a program at any time prior to its presentation at a meeting of the Society.

CANDIDATES FOR EMPLOYMENT All candidates for employment are required: (1) To be members or paid student affiliates of the ACS (2) To be registered and in attendance at the meeting (3) To consult a special bulletin board twice daily: (starting Monday, Jan. 20) sometime between 12:30 P.M. and 1:30 P.M. and 4:45 P.M. and 5:00 P.M. or 8 A.M. and 8:30 A.M. the following morning Candidates desiring to register for the Clearing House in advance may secure application blanks by writing to the American Chemical Society, 1155 Sixteenth St., N.W., Washington, D.C. 20036; requests should mention the Denver Meeting. Candidates may also wish to register for the meeting in advance; see details on page 156 under "Avanced Meeting Registration."

EMPLOYERS All employers' representatives are required: (1) To be registered and in attendance at the meeting (2) To register for the meeting before reviewing Clearing House applications (3) To agree that no placement charges will be made and that registrants will be advised at the time of first contact of geographic location, name of employer, and nature of position Registrants' records will be available for reviewing beginning Monday, Jan. 20, at 8 A.M.
NOV. 4, 1963 C & E N
The Board of Directors has voted the following Regulation governing papers to be presented before national, divisional, regional, or other major meetings, supplementing Bylaw VI, Sec. 5. Regulation VII, Sec. 3(a). Authorship of papers shall be accredited only to individuals and not to companies or laboratories. ( b ) If a paper is declined by any Division of the Society, the Secretary of that Division is instructed to notify the Secretary of any other Division to which it is likely to be offered. Notes. Priority is based solely upon the date of receipt of the complete paper deposited for publication with the Secretary of the Division or the appropriate editor. The Council has empowered officers of divisions to request any paper in advance, so that it may be passed upon and an indication made to the author as to
whether he is to read the entire paper or to abstract it in order to allow time for discussion. "By title" should be placed on the announcement of any paper when the author will be absent, so that Members may understand in advance that the paper will not be read. All such papers should be placed at the end of the program. If a paper is contributed by two or more authors, its title and abstract should indicate which author will present it at the meeting. Titles should be accompanied by information concerning desired projection equipment. Divisional Meeting Rooms Divisional meeting rooms will be equipped with standard lantern-slide projectors ( 2 x 2 inches and 3 1 / 4 X 4
inches), screens, blackboards, pointers, chalk, and reading desks with public address attachments. An attempt will be made to furnish motion picture and other special equipment upon the request of divisions or individuals if notice of such special needs is sent to the Washington office by Dec. 15. News Service Authors of papers will perform a great service and increase the efficiency in handling publicity by sending special synopses, abstracts, and other information of public interest to Roy Avery, Managing Editor, ACS News Service, 733 Third Ave., New York, N.Y. 10017.
