THE Report of the National Research Council of Canada for the year 1930–31 states that although industry has been under a cloud, during the year the demand for scientific assistance addressed to the Council has increased greatly. There are now 29 research committees associated with the Council in the solution of scientific and technical problems which arise in industry, and the annual expenditure is a little more than 550,000 dollars. Five fellowships of 1200 dollars, 22 studentships of 1000, and 35 bursaries of 800 dollars a year have been awarded, and 35 researches conducted in Canadian universities have been assisted during the year. From the summaries of the activities of the associated committees and of the reports on assisted researches, it is evident that Canada is building up a corps of research workers whose influence on the future of her industries is likely to be most important.
