brought definitely home to non-member companies, their affiliation with the Association can be readily secured. The Committee is confident that if the work is laid out systematically a very great increase in the Association's membership is possible. It recommends, therefore, that the work be continued in the future and that the new committee develop a definite plan for accomplishing the above result.

FRANK R. COATES :- I would like to advise that in addition to the information contained in this report should be added a word in reference to the valuable assistance rendered the Committee by Mr. Lynch in the efforts to increase the membership among the Canadian companies.

PRESIDENT TODD :- Gentlemen, you have heard the Report of the Committee on Company and Associate Membership. Is there any discussion of the report? If not, we will take up the report of the Committee on Constitution and By-Laws, Mr. L. S. Storrs, President, The Connecticut Company, New Haven, Connecticut, Chairman.

REPORT OF SPECIAL COMMITTEE ON REVISION OF

CONSTITUTION AND BY-LAWS To the American Electric Railway Association:

GENTLEMEN: There seems to be some question as to the wisdom of carrying out the plan contained in the By-Laws which were adopted at the last convention relating to the meetings of the Executive Committee. The requirement that meetings of the Executive Committee shall be held every month, has resulted in some of the members of the Committee not attending the meetings with regularity. The suggestion which has been made that we limit the number of meetings is, I believe, in the interest of the officers and the operating staff of the Association, and these interests would be better conserved by not having so large a number of meetings as in the past, and this proposed change is suggested and recommended for adoption.

All matter in capitals is new matter.
All matter in brackets is to be stricken out.

Article IV. (c) THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE SHALL HOLD NINE REGULAR MEETINGS DURING THE ASSOCIATION YEAR (The Executive Committee shall hold a regular meeting before each regular annual meeting of the Association, shall hold regular meetings monthly on a regular day determined by the Executive Committee) and shall hold such special meetings as may be necessary. THREE OF THESE REGULAR' MEETINGS OF THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE SHALL BE HELD AT THE TIME OF THE MEETINGS OF THE ASSOCIATION, ONE BEING HELD IMMEDIATELY BEFORE THE ANNUAL CONVENTION, ONE IMMEDIATELY AFTER THE ANNUAL CONVENTION AND ONE AT THE TIME OF THE MID-YEAR MEETING OF THE ASSOCIATION. THE TIME AND PLACE OF THE REMAINING REGULAR MEETINGS SHALL BE FIXED BY THE EXECUTIVE COMMITTEE. THE [Such] special meetings may be called by the President or by any five members of the Executive Committee. Seven voting members of the Executive Committee shall constitute a quorum at all meetings. The Executive Secretary shall give such reasonable notice of all special meetings as the committee shall by vote prescribe, and all such notices shall, as far as practicable, specify the business to be brought to the attention of the committee at such meetings.

Respectfully submitted,

A. W. BRADY,

L. S. STORRS, Chairman, Special Committee on Revision of Constitution

and By-Laws. L. S. STORRS :- Mr. President and gentlemen, this proposed change has been sent to all our Member Companies by order of the Executive Committee, and this amendment of the ByLaws is now up for your action at the present time. Mr. President, I move that the amendment to the By-Laws, with respect to the meetings of the Executive Committee, be adopted as proposed.

FRANK R. COATES:- I second the motion.
(The motion was duly put to vote and carried.)

PRESIDENT TODD - May we have at this time the Report of the Committee on Publications, of which Mr. Storrs is also Chairman?

L. S. STORRS :-- I was rather hoping that this report would not be called for until we had a very much fuller attendance at the meeting; however, I will present it now.

(Mr. Storrs then presented the report.)
