IT is difficult to find in this country in these days a scientific worker, however recondite his studies may have been in pre-war days, who is not engaged in problems connected with the war, the development of industry, or the extension of trade. A similar state of things, at an earlier stage, is to be seen-in the United States, where, the National Academy of Sciences has formed a National Research Council, which is organising research on current problems. The council is nothing if not catholic in its ideas of war-time research, and the subjects allocated to its committees and sub-committees range from palseontology to psychology.
