APPLIED KINETICS AND REACTION ENGINEERINGSUMMER SYMPOSIUM, June 13-15 Nineteen papers have been committed for the Third State-of-the-Art Summer Symposium sponsored by the I&EC Division. Titles and authors for the committed papers are listed below. Abstracts, attendance fees, and preregistration forms will be published next month. The symposium, as in past years, will be held at ACS Headquarters in Washington, D. C. Plan now to attend-and visit the Nation’s Capitol before the summer heat sets in. CHAIRMAN R. B.

PREVIEWING INDUSTRY FOR CHEMISTRY AND ENGINEERING STUDENTS
The Division has begun a program aimed at assisting students of chemistry and chemical engineering to familiarize themselves with the industrial environment, the nature of industrial problems, and the scope of industrial operations. The Connecticut Valley Section, chosen for the project because of its large number of students and industrial sites, has run three field trips-to Monsanto’s Springfield plant, Pfizer’s Groton plant, and Combustion Engineering’s Windsor plant. One hundred forty-five senior and graduate students participated under the guidance of professional chemists and engineers. The transportation costs for these trips were underwritten by the Division, which considers them to be significant factors in fostering relations among students, the Society, and the chemical industry.
