A special meeting was held at this date in Mr. Farrers studio.

The meeting was called to order by the President at 830 P.M. with nine members present – viz: Messers Baldwin, Th. Moran, Shirlaw, Church, Sabin, Geo. Smillie, van Elten, Deilman, Farrer&Yale.

Dr. Yale reported as the results of the conference with the Committee of the Union League Club that the Union League Theatre could not be used for Dr. Seymour Haydens lectures, but the Art Committee were very desirous that the N. Y. Etching Club should get up an exhibition of etchings by its members for November 9th – the Union League Club to give a reception shortly afterward to Mr. Haden. A thorough search of the archives at the Union League Club turned up no record of either the referenced reception for Dr. Seymour Haden or an impromptu exhibition by the New York Etching Club, though both the reception and exhibition may well have occurred.

After considerable discussion it was moved, seconded and carried that the Etching Club accept the invitation to exhibit.

Upon motion of Dr. Yale, duly seconded and carried the Committee to obtain information in regard to Dr. Haden’s lectures and other matters was increased to five members, as follows, Messers Yale, J. D. Smillie, Geo. H. Smillie, Nicoll, and Thos. Moran.

The meeting the adjourned to Thursday, November 20 at 8 P.M.

so some one know about replacing silicon atom with phosphorous in semiconductors device?
s. Reply
Yeah, it is a pain to say the least. You basically have to heat the substarte up to around 1000 degrees celcius then pass phosphene gas over top of it, which is explosive and toxic by the way, under very low pressure.
