ASSOCIATED ENGINEERING SOCIETIES
OF ST. LOUIS
A Monthly Periodical
ST. LOUIS, MO., JANUARY, 1922
This is the initial number of the JOURNAL OF THE ASSOCIATED ENGINEERING SOCIETIES OF ST. LOUIS, to be published monthly as the successor of the JOURNAL OF THE ENGINEERS' CLUB OF ST. LOUIS. The change is made by the Executive Committee of the Engi. neers' Club with the approval of the Joint Council of the Associated Engineering Societies, in conformity with the well established spirit of co-operation among the engineers of St. Louis.
THE JOURNAL will present news items and personals relating to the activities of the member organizations represented in the Associated Societies.
With the co-operation of the authors THE JOURNAL will print abstracts of papers read before the Associated Societies. It is the belief of the Joint Council that, in their complete form, papers of merit should be given the wider publicity afforded by the technical press, and not be confined to the limited circulation of our own membership. Papers of local interest, having marked value as records, will be printed in full, if circumstances will permit.
THE JOURNAL will devote space to the activities of the Federated American Engineering Societies and other agencies seeking to establish the engineer as a factor in the public service.
THE JOURNAL will carry advertising. This will make possible a larger and a better publication. The hearty co-operation of the membership is requested in the securing of this “sinew of war.”
This much we promise. It remains for the individual members of the Associated Societies to manifest their interest, their approval or disapproval, their constructively critical tendencies, all to the end that THE JOURNAL may be able to fulfill its design of devotion "to the interests of the engineering profession in St. Louis."
Entered as second-class matter, February 11, 1916, at the post-office at St. Louis, Mo., under
the Act of August 24, 1912.

THE FEDERATED AMERICAN ENGINEERING SOCIETIES.
The annual meeting of American Engineering Council, the representative body of the Federated American Engineering Societies, was held at the Cosmos Club, Washington, D. C., on January 5th and 6th, 1922. The sessions were preceded, on January 4th, by a meeting of the Executive Board of 1921 and followed, on the afternoon of the 6th, by the first meeting of the new Board elected for 1922.
The meeting was very well attended, practically all societies being represented, and the progress of the three sessions was marked by free and interested discussion and close attention on the part of delegates and visitors. Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, of the University of Michigan, President of the Federation, presided at all sessions.
It is probably safe to say that no organization of engineers has ever, in the first year of its life, accomplished as much of interest to the public or the profession at large, as American Engineering Council. The difficulty has been, not to find work to do, but to select from the mass of matter presented, the subjects most deserving of attention.
Mr. L. W. Wallace, Executive Secretary, presented a complete report of the activities of the Council for the past year. The results of these activities have been given wide publicity, and the following list of the more important items undertaken is given in the nature of a review:
A Report by a Special Committee on “Waste in Industry.”
Co-operaton with the Department of Commerce in various conferences, the nature of which is exemplified by the one on varieties of paving brick, which resulted in an agreement among manufacturers to reduce the number of varieties from 66 to 11.
Support of the Kenyon Bill providing for the prevention of cyclical depressions by setting aside appropriations for public work.
Improvement in the Employment Service of the Federation.
Approval of a special report on Classification and Compensation of Engineers.
Consideration of suggested changes in Government Contracts.
Support of the Lampert Bill providing much needed relief for the V. S. Patent Office.
.I study of Work Periods in Continuous Industry.
