Tellers. President Downs:-Your outgoing President wishes to congratulate this convention for having what I consider an excellent meeting. I have attended nearly all of your twenty-three meetings, but never saw so many members in their seats at the opening of the first session on Tuesday morning and so many in their seats in the evening as we have at the closing on the third day.

The attention which the members gave to the proceedings during the convention made it very easy for me to conduct the affairs of the meeting. I believe there has been more said at this meeting that had real weight and less that was relatively unimportant than at any other meeting we have ever held. You are to be congratulated. You have had a particularly good series of reports this year, which will be of great value to railway companies.

I will ask Mr. Morse and Mr. Wendt to escort the new President, Mr. J. L. Campbell, to the Chair.

(Messrs. Morse and Wendt escorted the new President to the Chair.)

President Downs:-Mr. Campbell, you have been elected as President of the greatest body of railway men in the world, a position which but few men merit and a position to which but few have attained. I have watched your work ever since you and I have been in the Association and you well deserve the honor bestowed upon you and I am sure there is no danger of the Association work going down under your direction. I congratulate you. (Applause.)

President-Elect Campbell:-Mr. Downs-If I shall deliver this office to my successor with as much credit to myself as you have delivered it to me, I shall be satisfied. (Applause.)

Gentlemen of the American Railway Engineering Association :-The El Paso & Southwestern Railroad is not a large railroad-only a little more than 1,000 miles in one corner of the country. The honor and distinction which you have conferred upon one of its representatives is an exemplification of the democracy and generosity this Association. I esteem it a great honor and it is a great delight to be thus distinguished by you. However, I am not presenting any apologies for the El Paso & Southwestern Railroad. Mr. Morse will tell you, if you ask him, that it is a bang-up railroad and, as far as it goes, is just as wide as the Pennsylvania.

I do not view the responsibilities of this office with undue trepidation. On the contrary, I approach them with some confidence solely on account of the men by whom I shall be surrounded, men who will be my advisers and helpers, men whom I have learned to know and love as indeed I have come to know and love all of you with whom it has been my good fortune to come into personal contact and association. For the coming year, I bespeak for the Board of Direction, the chairmen of the standing committees and the committees themselves your heartiest coöperation and assistance. I am sure you will respond promptly to all calls from these committees for your help so that we will gather here again a year from now and duplicate the success and distinction which have marked the convention this year. (Applause.)

Immediately upon the adjournment of the convention the Board of Direction will meet and I especially desire that the Directors elected at this convention will be present.

If there is no further business before you, I now declare the twentythird annual convention of the American Railway Engineering Association adjourned sine die.

The twenty-fourth annual convention of the American Railway Engineering Association will be held at the Congress Hotel, Chicago, March 13, 14 and 15, 1923.

At a meeting of the Board of Direction held March 15, 1922, C. E. Lindsay was elected a Director to fill the unexpired term of the late Colonel Geo. H. Webb, and W. P. Wiltsee was elected a Director to fill the unexpired term of G. J. Ray, promoted to Vice-President.

E. H. FRITCH,

Secretary.
