The annual dues for 1916 became payable on January 1,1916. It is suggested that dues be paid in lump sums covering a period of two to five years; this method of payment has advantages for members as well as for the Institute and is practised by a number of members, both regular and associate. Response to this notice will save the Institute a considerable sum in stationery and postage. Beginning January 1, 1916, members residing abroad permanently or for any length of time will be charged postage at the rate of fifty cents a year.
It is believed that the scope of usefulness of the Proceedings to members of the Institute can be increased and all members are invited to assist in this work.
