These two recogni­ tions and establishment of the AMERI­ CAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY Local Section Public Relations Award increase the number of awards administered by the ACS to 19. The ACS Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry spon­ sored by the Synthetic Organic Chemi­ cal Manufacturers Association will rec­ ognize outstanding creative work in synthetic organic chemistry that has been published in an American journal during the preceding three years end­ ing Jan. 1 of the year in which the award is presented. The award con­ sists of $1000 and a certificate. A contingent allowance of $150 may be provided for traveling expenses to the meeting at which the award will be presented. The award will be pre­ sented for the first time in 1957. Also to be presented initially in 1957, the ACS Award in Industrial and Engi­ neering Chemistry sponsored by the Esso Research and Engineering Co. was established to stimulate funda­ mental research in industrial and engi­ neering chemistry and in the develop­ ment and application of chemical engi­ neering principles to industrial proc­ esses. The award consists of $1000 and a gold medal. An allowance of not more than $150 is provided for travel­ ing expenses to the meeting at which the award will be presented. To recognize outstanding public re­ lations activities by local sections of the ACS, the Board of Directors has established the ACS Local Section Pub- He Relations Award.
