PRESIDENT HOUX: It is my duty, honor and pleasure as President of our Association to call this 56th Annual Convention of the American Association of Railroad Superintendents to order for all business which should come before it. It has been said when any groups are gathered together for good purposes that before commencing, they should invoke the Divine Blessing of the Supreme Being.
