"Public Relations in Action"

Information was the keynote of the First National Standardization Conference, including the 32nd Annual Meeting of the American Standards Association, held November 27, 28, and 29 at the Waldorf Astoria, New York. The active discussion that fol. lowed the sessions on industrial mo. bilization, purchasing, construction, consumer goods, and on company use of standards, showed the vital interest of those present and indicated how badly such opportunities for exchange of ideas are needed.

The Annual Meeting at the American Standards Association, held the first morning, was presided over by Dr Harold S. Osborne, chief engi. neer of the American Telephone and Telegraph Company, and vice-president of ASA. In serving industry during 1950, Dr Osborne said, ASA has approved 149 American Stand. ards, 66 new and 83 revised. Among these were standards for the building industry, textiles, gas-burning appliances, highway traffic, motion pictures, photography, electrical prod. ucts, industrial safety, and mechanical industries. They bring the total of American Standards to 1,139.

Information on costs and results of American Standards Association activities never show the enormous expenditure of time and effort given by technical leaders in industry who have initiated and carried forward standardization projects, Walter C. Wagner said in his report as chairman of Standards Council. Some 4,000 experts from a wide variety of fields are now serving on ASA committees, he said. Mr Wagner paused to pay tribute to one of these men who is now retiring from active duty.

"Dr E. C. Crittenden, Associate Director of the National Bureau of Standards, has played a major part in the approval of basic standards," he said. "He has served outstandingly in the reorganization of ASA in 1928, and over the years has often acted as our Chief Delegate to the


[blocks in formation]

International Electrotechnical Com-
mission meetings here and abroad.
In his work on the Electrical Stand-
ards Committee and later as chair-
man of the Standards Council his
contributions were those of a balance
wheel in resolving the various view-
points and directing them to con-
structive ends. We trust that for
many years we may still continue to
have the benefit of his counsel and

“Voluntary standards are public
relations in action," Vice Admiral
G. F. Hussey, Jr, managing director
of ASA, told the meeting. Standards
for the installation of plastering and
for safety in the rubber industry
were developed with broad coopera-
tion between management and labor,
he explained. This, he said, showed
good labor relations. The Safety
Code for Mechanical Refrigeration
brought together representatives of
37 groups. This showed good public
relations among diverse groups.

"The ASA has been the greatest
factor in keeping solutions of indus.
trial problems in the hands of free
enterprise,” Admiral Hussey de-
clared. "It has provided the means
for such solutions, thus averting Gov.
ernment regulation."

Those who heard FTC's Lowell B.

Mason talk on Non Parallelia at the

Conference luncheon agreed that it

was one of the best luncheon speeches

they had ever heard. Mr Mason's

approach to his subject was enliv-

ened by the fact that he had just re-

turned from a visit to England.

Offcially, he was there to exchange

ideas with the Board of Trade and to

deliver two lectures before the School

of Economics and Political Science,

University of London.
