The position taken by the Council on the proposed tunnel under the Rocky Mountain National Park has been questioned by some members of the Society. This fact is relatively unimportant because the issue involved is highly controversial. However, every member of the Society must be concerned with the procedures used by the Council to take a definite position on such a question. Professional societies are essentially democratic organizations and, as such, the administration of them must be democratic. In the following paper Professor H. H. Chapman, President of the Society, at the time the Council reversed the position previously taken by its Executive Secretary on the Rocky Mountain tunnel, describes in detail the procedure of the Council. This paper is published in order to give each member of the Society an opportunity to form his own opinion concerning the basis for and the justification of the Council action.
