THE Industrial and Agricultural Research Section of the Royal Statistical Society, formed by the Council in 1933, has just issued its first publication as a supplement to part 2, vol. 97 of the Journal of the Royal Statistical Society. The issue will be biannual (price 5s. each) and the second number will be published at the same time as part 4 of the current volume of the Journal. Some indication of the type of problem considered by the Section is obtained from the titles of the papers comprising the first number, which are as follows: “Application of Statistical Methods to Production and Research in Industry”, “Statistics in Agricultural Research”, “A New Method of Handling Statistical Data”, and “Methods of Estimating from Samples the Population Standard Deviation”. In addition, an account is given of the formation of the new section, and a bibliography of papers on agricultural statistics published during 1931-33 is included. The payment of an annual subscription of 105. (excluding postage) secures both numbers of the supplement each year, and also confers the right to attend the meetings as an associate member of the Section. Orders and subscriptions should be addressed to the assistant secretary, Royal Statistical Society, 9 Adelphi Terrace, London, W.C.2, and marked I.A.R.S.
