    X HE AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY has accepted administrative responsibility for the AIVIERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY Award for Creative Work in Synthetic Organic Chemistry sponsored by the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association and the AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY Award in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry sponsored by the Ksso Research and Engineering Co. These two recognitions and establishment of the AMERICAN 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 sponsored by the Synthetic Organic Chemical Manufacturers Association will recognize outstanding creative work in synthetic organic chemistry that has been published in an American journal during the preceding three years ending Jan. 1 of the year in which the award is presented. The award consists 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 presented for the first time in 1957.

    Also to be presented initially in 1957, the ACS Award in Industrial and Engineering Chemistry sponsored by the Esso Research and Engineering Co. was established to stimulate fundamental research in industrial and engineering chemistry and in the development and application of chemical engineering principles to industrial processes. The award consists of $1000 and a gold medal. An allowance of not more than $150 is provided for traveling expenses to the meeting at which the award will be presented.

    To recognize outstanding public relations activities by local sections of the ACS, the Board of Directors has established the ACS Local Section Pub-He Relations Award. Appropriate certificates will be awarded separately in size groupings as follows: small (less than 200 members) ,- medium (200 to 499 members) , middle (500 to 999 members) , and large sections (over 1000 members) with discretion to make no award or more than one

    award as may be merited. T h e activities to be recognized will b e evaluated on the basis of local section, annual reports. Recipients of t h e awards for 1954 activities were announced a t the Minneapolis meeting in September (see C&EN, Sept. 26, page4027) .

    Further details of these awards, particulars of the James T. Grady Avyard for outstanding chemical reporting: also established in 1955 (see C&EN, June 6, page 2412), and complete information about other awards administered by the Society are given in ACS Bulletin 7, "Awards Administered by the AMERICAN CHEMICAL SOCIETY"; the 1956 edition will be available shortly.
