Scientific Research



IN common with other subscribers to the Scientific Research Association, I recently received an intimation from the acting secretary and the treasurer that the support accorded to it was not sufficient to justify the establishment of the proposed organisation. There can, however, be no question of the importance of the aim the association had set itself—the promotion of research, irrespective of the economic advantages it may bring with it; and it may be some satisfaction to those who feel this to know that the National Union of Scientific Workers has formed a research council to promote the interests of research for its own sake. It is desired to make this council as representative as possible of every branch of scientific investigation. Communications from all who have the success of such a movement at heart should be addressed to the secretary of the National Union, Major Church, 19 Tothill Street, S.W.I, or to myself.
