SOME comment is called for on the note on the Imperial Forestry Institute which appeared in NATURE of Jan. 15, p. 96, and which is likely to produce a wrong impression in the minds of those unacquainted with the facts. With reference to a proposal to spend a sum of £75,000 on the erection of new buildings to accommodate the Imperial Forestry Institute at Oxford, the following observation is made: "On the face of it the scheme appears to be a laudable one. Nevertheless, it would seem to demand further careful consideration if this money or the bulk of it is to be provided from the Treasury." As, there has been no suggestion that the Treasury should make any contribution towards the scheme, the fears expressed in regard to national expenditure may in this instance be set at rest.
