THESE """ SCALE MODELS
PROVIDE A VIVID, THREE-DIMENSIONAL LOOK AT MOLECULAR STRUCTURES!
Dimethyl-polysiloxane Chain LaPine-Leybold atom models according to Stuart and Briegleb have outstanding advantages. They are large. Measurement, assembly and visualization of molecular models are easy, quick. They give an exact picture of the spatial arrangement of organic compounds magnified b y l . 5 x l 0 8 .
Models snap together quickly. Spring metal wedges make rigid connections for multiple bonds. The "hydrogen-bridge" uses a hook-and-eye connection that enables larger angle shifts and permits the construction of strongly bound, hydrogen-bridged molecules.

Society to Dedicate Headquarters Building Month of October will be observed throughout Society as ACS Building Dedication Month
A milestone in the history of the American Chemical Society will be observed Oct. 7, with the dedication of the new headquarters building.
A three part program has been set up:
A morning session at the new headquarters at which the actual dedication ceremony will be carried out. National officers and directors, designated representatives of divisions and local sections, and a few staff members will attend this session.
A luncheon in the Statler Hilton, sponsored by Corn Products Co., for those at the morning session and several special guests.
An afternoon session in the auditorium of the Carnegie Institution of Washington at which three outstanding addresses will be presented. This session will be attended by a larger gathering.
Dr. Albert L. Elder, President of the Society, will preside at the morning session. Dr. Arthur C. Cope, ACS Board Chairman, will present the keys to Dr. Alden H. Emery, Executive Secretary, who will accept on behalf of the staff. Highlights of the building project will be reviewed by Dr. Wallace R. Brode, chairman of the
ACS Building Committee, and Dr. John H. Nair, chairman of the Planning Committee for the building fund drive. Dr. Dael Wolfle, executive officer of the A A AS, will convey the congratulations and good wishes of other scientific societies. One of the commissioners of the District of Columbia will comment on the importance of Washington as a scientific center and on the.value of ACS to the community.
Speaking at the luncheon will be Robert G. Ruark, vice president of Corn Products. In the afternoon, Dr. W. Albert Noyes, Dr. Charles Allen Thomas, and Dr. Glenn T. Seaborg will present addresses on the role of chemistry in basic research, applied research, and education. Government representatives, officials of other scientific societies, and educators will participate.
In recognition of the Oct. 7 event, ACS Building Dedication Month will be observed throughout the Society during October. Slides of the new building and accompanying text are available to all sections for use at section meetings. To obtain them, write to the Division of Public, Professional, and Member Relations at ACS headquarters, . 1155 16th Street, N.W., Washington 6, D.C.

WAUPOL RCI's PVAc COPOLYMER
WITH PROVEN DURABILITY ON EXTERIOR WOOD
^ This Rahway, N. J., home was coated with j a 32% PVC vinyl copolymer emulsion I paint to determine the durability of RCI | 9120 WALLPOL on previously painted
wood. Two coats were applied to the cedar shakes in April, 1957. No primer was used. The shakes had been painted with linseed oil house paint two years earlier; the surface was in good condition and showed only slight chalking. The photograph and the close-up attest to the condition of the house 3 years later. The surface condition of the house is good, with only slight chalking on south and east exposures. RCI 9120 WALLPOL incorporates all of the latest advances in PVAc emulsion technology. Small particle size, high dis-tensibility and a uniquely balanced emulsi-fier system contribute to these distinct advantages when used on properly prepared exterior wood:
"Qease of application spreads easily ~^ quick-dry in as little as 30 minutes '~Qeasy soap-and-water clean-up of tools and equipment
~ retains its appearance for many years excellent tint retention and low dirt pickup
~ blister resistant film allows moisture vapor permeability

Communication: Subject of Discussion at N.Y. Meeting ACS communication, internal and ex-ternal, will be featured at two events of the 138th National Meeting in New York. One event will involve the close-by problem of how to improve communications within the Society. This will be the topic at the local sec-tion officers group breakfast, Sept. 14, in the Chelsea room of the Governor Clinton at 7:30 A.M. R. K. Neuman, who heads the staff office concerned specifically with this function, will dis-cuss "The Local Section's Role in Im-proving ACS Communications." There will be plenty of opportunity for others to express their views. Harold Ter-rine, chairman of the Council Policy Committee's sub-committee on im-proving communications, will be on hand, as will representatives of local sections which have given special at-tention to this problem.
Later in the day, beginning at 2:30 P.M., there will be a public relations workshop in the Statler-Hilton Hotel. This will be devoted to ways of get-ting the story of science and ACS ac-tivities into the newspapers. This problem will be discussed by a science writer for a major metropolitan daily newspaper, an editor of a newspaper which has no science writer, Roy Avery, managing editor of the ACS News Service, and Mr. Neuman. All local sections are urged to have repre-sentatives there.
Local Sections Reactivate Building Fund Campaigns Several local sections of the ACS will reactivate their building fund cam-paigns for the ACS headquarters build-ing during the 1960-61 season. Many of these sections did not reach their goals for one reason or another. One section had their campaign chairman transferred soon after the campaign began. A section officer said, "The campaign sputtered to a stop because it was impossible to get good leader-ship on short notice." This section expects to meet or exceed its quota in its renewed campaign. Other sections ran into similar difficulties.
R. V. Mellefont, ACS Treasurer, is interested in discussing plans with local section representatives for re-newing their campaigns. He is par-ticularly interested in meeting with
those people who will attend the Na-tional Meeting in New York. Confer-ences can be arranged with Mr. Melle-font on Sept. 14 and 15 in New York by writing to American Chemical So-ciety, 1155 Sixteenth St., N.W., Wash-ington 6, D.C. In New York confer-ences may be arranged during the meeting by contacting the receptionist in the Empire Suite, at the Statler Hilton.
Brubaker Elected Dr. Carl H. Brubaker, Jr., associate professor of chemistry at Michigan State University, is the 1960-61 chair-man of the Michigan State University Section of the ACS. He was treasurer of the section in 1957-58. Dr. An-drew Timnick is chairman-elect, Dr. James L. Dye is secretary, Dr. Richard H. Schwendeman is treasurer, Dr. Robert N. Hammer is councilor, and Dr. Harold M. Sell is alternate coun-cilor. All are at Michigan State.

l a b o r a t o r y a t C h e m s t r a n d Corp., is the 1960-61 chair-m a n of t h e Mobile - Pensacola Section of the ACS. Dr. Ed-ward F. Rehm of
Courtaulds, Inc., is chairman-elect, Charles E. Bater, Jr., of Courtaulds is secretary, Robert E. Pennell of Chem-strand is treasurer, and Dr. Reid H. Leonard of Baptist Hospital is coun-cilor.
