The Congress is the a n n u a l contention of. members of the Na- nar Safety Council, and the Council is planning to make the ane this year something special n celebration of. 40 years of steady levclopment in accident prevcn- lori. It was In October of 1012 that i group of safety engineers for various steel companies met in the lotel Pfister hi Milwaukee in the First Co-Opera live Safely Congress. They w e r e ' f e w in number and were regarded with a touch jf bewilderment by their colleagues in the steel plants, but they were determined lo put a stop lo Lho accidents that were happening loo often in the steel mills. Sifety Council Born Out of their discussions in that six-day meeting came t h e N a t i o n a l Industrial'-.'Safety Council. T h e Council soon shed the Word "in- iustrial" and became the National Safety Council, the clearing house and major-domo of organized safety today. , When the 40th annual Congress louvcncs this fall, it will lake five )lg hotels lo hold Ihe .convention. VIoro than 12,000 safety people 'mm all over Ihe world will altcnd. More than GOO speakers will appear at 200 sessions, covering every conceivable phase of. safety. In adcli- .ion, the Congress exjwsllion will contain about 250 exhibits covering all types,of safety aids. Throughout the Congress emphasis will be placed on the progress that has been made in accident prevention in the four decades thai i n v e followed Ihe first Congress in Milwaukee. But no effort will be maclc lo minimize the size of the accident loll today and the huge problem .il presents. Cut Aecidtnt Toll The National Safety Council es- timates'that 500,000 lives have been saved through the combined efforts oC thousands of safety people since the organized effort lo cut Ihe accident toll began 40 years ago. This f i g u r e is based on the accidental death rate in 1913 and the rates for succeeding years. The Congress banquet this year will be highlighted, by n tribute to the pioneers of safety who atlend- ccl that first Safety Congress in 1912, or who enlisted in the s.nfcty movemeul immediately thcrcaflcr. William IT. Cameron, who was the firsl managing director of the Council and who held thai post until 19-12, will be honored at the banquet. Theme of (he -10th Congress will be the need for co-operalion in Ihe safely movement. Ned H. .Dearborn, president of Ihe Council, has made co-operation his chief goal since assuming presidency of the .Council 10 years ago.
