Abstract

Members and Friends of the American Meteorological Society A sudden and urgent War Department assignment has, in the last minute, robbed me of the opportunity to take part in this most important of recent annual meetings. Its importance lies not merely in the fact that we today celebrate our twenty-fifth anniversary, but most of all in the fact that the Society is now emerging as a professional organization and hence is charged with clear-cut obligations both to its members and to the general public served by our profession. It had been my hope to give today a preliminary account of some of the post-war plans in meteorology which we have attempted to develop during the last few months. These plans are still largely in discussion stage and it is perhaps fortunate that unpredicted circumstances have delayed the accounting until our next meeting. I would like to take this opportunity to express my personal thanks to my colleagues in the Society who, through their faith and hard work, have contributed so greatly to insure a great future for the Society. To Dr. Brooks, who gave us the foundation on which to build, to the unsurpassed local Seminar in Kansas City who gave what is undoubtedly the best annual meeting program ever presented, to Prof. Houghton who, as Chairman of the Editorial Committee, is now giving us our new Journal. There are many others, but T.W.A.'s plane is waiting to carry me away and I have time only for just one more thought—Long live the American Meteorological Society!—C.-G. Rossby, President. Bull.
