Reports of Officers

The retiring president, Henry V. Macksey, of Framingham, Mass., read his report for the past year, which showed the association to be in sound financial condition and advancing along progressive lines.

Committee Reports Not Read

It was expected that a number of papers would be read in the form of reports from the chairmen of various committees as a list of committees due to report was printed in the announcement of the meeting. These reports tailed to materialize, however, and as a result of this curtailment of the program the meeting was ended earlier than the customary time.

Mr. F. A. Barbour proposed that a literary committee be appointed to draw up a program of lectures, speakers, etc., for future meetings, with a view to developing discussions along various, special lines of water works engineering. The motion was carried.

Address by the New President

In the election there were 323 votes cast for Mr. Sherman for president and four blank votes. The new president was given an ovation and made a short speech, telling of his belief and faith in the association. He said that the work of worth while committees must be revised and continued, others dropped, and new committees appointed. He emphasized the need of new members for the association and especially the addition of young men to the membership list. Mr. Sherman closed his address by thanking the association for his election as president and prophesied a prosperous and successful year during 1921.

The suggestion was made that the associate members be asked to take charge of one of the meetings of the organization.

The deaths were reported of Edward L. Hatch, of Stamford, Conn., who was elected to the New England Water Works Association in 1907, and Robert A. McKim, who was elected in 1915.
