Organize'^ ~ engineers' of Amesloa must l>e a steadying force in the tendency to multiply legislation now said to be sweeping* the country, Gano Dunn, prominent New York en gineer, told delegates to the Ameri can Engineering Council of the Fed erated American Engineering Socie ties at today's session of the flrit annual convention of thfe organization at the Cosmos Club. Mr. Dunn's speech came in the midst of a discussion over the ques tion of licensing engineers, .which provoked the liveliest debate Of the council's sessions thus far and which was participated in by representa tives of the leading- engineering so cieties. DlMcu.HMed tor Yen p. For more than a year the engineers ha ye beeq inquiring into the licens ing question in every state and mett ings have been held in various c.ties. Some states have adopted laws re quiring registration or.licensing of engineers and others have the ques tion up for consideration. Decided opinion both for and against the licensing of engineers exists throughout tsie country, it de veloped at today's session of the council. There are some important organizations and individuals, it.was declared, who feel that the American Engineering Council should endeavor to sceure passage of laws licensing engineers in those states that have no such laws. The majority, it was stated, feel that there should be no such law. Philip N. Moore of St. Louis, former chairman of the war relief minerals commission, declared his opposition to licensing, asserting the principle of the least government the better. Maj. F. J. Miller of New York. pas*, president of the American Society of Mechanical Engineers, offered a reso lution to refer the whole matter to a special committee, which would make a nation-wide investigation of the question of licensing. This reso lution brought on a discussion, which promised to be protracted. It Mas supported by Mr. Dunn, who de clared that it would be unwise for the council to take action of any kind before ascertaining clearly what licensing meant. He said that a movement was now sweeping the country and that the engineers must stoop a little to escape being over come by the storm. The licensing idea, he said, was causing the same concern to other professions and call ings and he insisted that the path must be clear and fre?? from doubt, before embarked upon. Mr. Dunn de plored the tendency to rush into leg islation and called upon the engineers to aid in checking it. Before the question of licensing came up. the engineers listened to a statement of unfavorable conditions in tiic mining industry by prominent mining engineers and producers. Ed win T. Ludlow of New York, president of the American Institute of Mining and Metallurgical Engineers, said that conditions were bad in the basic industries of copper, lead and zinc. Mines were shut down or running on short time, he said, and thousands of mining engineers were out of employ ment. Others Tell of Depression. Maj. Arthur S. Dwight of New York, Philip N. Moore of St. Louis and J. Parke Channing of New York also told of the depression in the mining industry. The council voted to press its cam paign for reform of the patent office. Following adopt ion of a resolution urging the passage of the Lampett bill, the council decided lo arrange for tiie appointment of a special com mittee to work with its patent com mittee. Speakers insisted that if Representative Mondell knew the facts he would not delay the pro posed patent office legislation. Another matter coming before the council today was the question of finance. The budget prepared by the finance committee revealed that, owing to business conditions, sharp economies must be effected. The new executive board of the council tomorrow will organize and map out a constructive program, in which the engineers have the sup port and counsel of Secretary of Com merce Hoover. Elimination of waste, now causing billions of loss annually to the Amer ican people. Is the most fundamental of all problems with which the na tion must deal. Seeretary Hoover said last night at a dinner given by the council in his honor at the University Club. Approximately 200 members of the council and their guest* attended the dinner, at which Dean Mortimer E. Cooley, president of the council, presided. The council presented to Mr. Hoover a copy of a resolution passed by it In which he was extolled for "the distinguished suocess which has followed him in his past services to his profession, his country and man kind."
