Excerpt from Weights and Measures: Sixth Annual Conference of Representatives From Various States, Held at the Bureau of Standards, Washington, D. C., February 17 and 18, 1911

The sixth annual conference convened at a. M., in the lecture room of the Bureau of Standards, the chairman, Dr. S. W. Stratton, Director of the Bureau of Standards, presiding.

The chairman. Gentlemen, it gives me very great pleasure to welcome you, the delegates to this, the sixth convention of State and city officials.

The representation is not as large as we expected, and not as large as we Ought to have, but no one knows, perhaps, as well as Mr. Fischer and myself, what the difficulty is in getting representation from the States that have no organization. There is no difficulty after the State has perfected its organization, but to get a new State started, and to get a delegate from a State in which the work has not been put on the proper basis, is a very slow process. Most of the governors respond with a formal letter expressing their hearty sympathy with the work and wishing it success, but stating that they are unable to send a delegate on account of lack of funds, or lack of this or lack of that. Sometimes we get discouraged; sometimes it seems that it is almost impossible to get the State officials to gether; and yet I am very greatly encouraged at the number that we have this morning.
