    Mr. Alden H. Emery

    American Chemical Society

    1155 Sixteenth Street, N.W.

    Washington 6, D.C.

    Dear Alden:

    I am writing to in answer to your letter of July 21, about the proposal that the A.C.S. designate a representative or representatives to serve on an advisory panel to the Committee on Food Protection of the National Research Council.

    I think that it would be wise for the Society to make such an appointment. I think that it might well be to desirable to have more than one representative of the Society because of the importance of the question and the magnitude of the contribution that these representatives might make. Perhaps two would be a suitable number. I do not know the people in this field well enough to make recommendations.

    I would think that it would be satisfactory for the president of the Society to make the appointment.

    Sincerely yours,

    Linus Pauling:W
