Miscellaneous Publication No. 131 of the Bureau of Standards, Washington, constitutes the Annual Report of the Bureau for the year ending June 1931. Notwithstanding the decrease in industrial activity in the United States, the demands on the Bureau for its services were greater than in the previous year, and the working costs were 2,600,000 dollars, an increase of 5 per cent on last year. The staff number nearly 12,000, and the salaries 710,000 dollars. A new hydraulic laboratory, capable of dealing with 300 cubic feet per second, and two new radio stations have been built, and a new administrative building and a high voltage laboratory are in contemplation.
