The first session of the State Society Officers' Section was called to order on Wednesday, July 8th, at 2 P. M., by the vice-chairman, Dr. Benjamin Sandy, of Minneapolis, Minn. Dr. Sandy, in calling the meeting to order, said:
I believe it unnecessary at this time to dwell upon the importance of dental organizations, local, state and national, All great movements in the past have been fostered by these organizations and thru them the profession has been cemented together. We must never-theless admit that there are many evils and weaknesses in the present form of dental organizations. This is shown by the fact that in some of our state organizations, where, with one exception, I believe, the percentage of members to those eligible ranges from 15 to 60 per cent, when it should be 95 or 98 per cent. We should not have men with no executive training occupying for the first time positions of importance in the organizations, learning by experience rather than
by training. These conditions are the excuse for the existence of this section. We have with us today men who have given a great deal of time and thought to these conditions, men who are past as well as present masters on the subject of organization work, and I take great pleasure in calling upon our president, Dr. Homer C. Brown, Columbus, Ohio., who will now read his paper entitled, "The Responsibilities of the State Society Officers." (Applause.)
(Dr. Brown's paper was published in May number of The Journal, page 101.)
THE CHAIRMAN then introduced Dr. Arthur D. Black, of Chicago, Ill., who read his paper entitled "The Conduct of State Societies and Their Components, in the Planning of Programs and Administration."
(Dr. Black's paper was published in May number of The Journal, page 110.) The session then adjourned until Thursday, July 9th, at 2 P. M.
The second session of the State Society Officers' Section was called to order on Thursday, July 9th, at 2 P. M. by the vice-chairman, Dr. Benjamin Sandy.
THE CHAIRMAN: The first thing on our program for this afternoon is a paper on "A State Society's Aim; Making Effi
cient Dentists," by Dr. Otto U. King, of Huntington, Indiana, General Secretary of the National Dental Association. (Applause.)
(Dr. King's paper will be published in a later issue of the Journal.)
THE CHAIRMAN: I regret to say that Dr. Price has been called home by the serious illness of his son, and his paper will not be read. This closes the program of this section at this time.
