When an air conditioning engineer is asked to calculate the load for a room such as this, he must know how many people will occupy the room. He must know this because each one of us here is liberating about 400 BTU per hour of heat energy. That is, when we are at rest. If we dance or do some similar exercise, our heat rate goes up to as much as 700 BTU per hour.

With the ever-increasing necessity of economy of processing and uniformity of product, automation becomes more and more vital to the citrus industry. Our present purpose is to define the subject, briefly describe its functions, and discuss, as time will allow, its pertinent applications.

It is obvious that a paper on this subject cannot possibly deal with all of the great wealth of material that is available. Therefore, it is necessary to narrow the material down to a more specific subject that will be of interest and value to the greatest possible number of people that are gathered here.

Palletizing is a relatively new word in the materials handling field. Its origin, in the sense that we use it today, occurred probably not over twenty years ago.

The construction of the Louisiana-Florida gas line will bring natural gas to the 48th state to receive this fuel. Florida is the only remaining state without natural gas according to gas suppliers. The consumption of natural gas has been steadily increasing in industry in the past and will continue to increase in the future. The ease with which gas can be handled and burned makes it an attractive fuel for most industrial needs.

During recent years, a number of plans for the development and sale of rigid metal containers made of materials other than tin plate have been publicly stated. While dealing primarily with the use of aluminum alloys, these announcements (1, 2, 3, 4) reflect general interest since World War II in the development of metal cans made from tin-free materials which would replace or compete with tin plate cans. This discussion will review within the limitations of space and time the progress made in this over-all field and, in particular, indicate the major engineering and economic problems which attend this development area.
