Bulletin HASKINS & SELLS 55
T H E practice of having a meeting of
members, managers, and heads of departments
was inaugurated at the Executive
Offices, Tuesday, June 17, 1919. It
is planned to hold these meetings every
other Tuesday at two o'clock in the afternoon,
and to have them extend over a
period of about one hour. At such times
there will be discussed matters pertaining
to our organization and work. It is hoped
that members and managers from out of
town will, by their presence, add to the
pleasure and value of the meetings when
their visits to New York coincide with the
days on which meetings will be held.
The following announcement, which
will, we think, be of interest to everyone
in the organization, is quoted in part from
General Order No. 69 of the War Department,
under date of May 24, 1919:
"Awards of distinguished-service
medal.—By direction of the President,
under the provisions of the Act of Congress
approved July 9, 1918 (Bul. No.
43, W. D., 1918) the distinguished-service
medal is awarded to the following-named
officers and civilians:

it in an exceptionally meritorious
manner during the remainder of the war.
