    THE International Congress for Scientific Management to be held in London on July 15 and subsequent dates is the sixth of a series which have been held in various European capitals since 1924. The hosts of the Conference are a Councilâ nominated by a number of societies interested in one phase or other of the management movement, and the technical societiesâ which has appointed an executive committee composed of outstanding industrial leaders and others with Sir George Beharrell as chairman. The patron is H.R.H. The Prince of Wales. The organisation is in the hands of committees having as chairmen, Dr. E. F. Armstrong, Sir Henry Fowler, Mr. G. R. Freeman, Sir George Courthope, Prof. Winifred Cullis. The genesis of the invitation is the desire both to entertain the delegates in England, to show that Britain has a factory and business organisation fully up to the most modern practice, and to arouse public interest in general in the subject of scientific management.
