    IN connexion with the Blackpool meeting of the British Association, Dr. W. F. Bewley delivered a public lecture on “Science and the Glasshouse Industry” at Blackpool South on September 11. Dr. Bewley prefaced his remarks by directing attention to the importance of protected crops in any scheme of food production which might become necessary if Great Britain should ever be faced with another war, and argued that new land should be broken with the plough and brought into the high state of fertility which is essential for the successful cultivation of vegetables. He also stressed the value of such crops in the diet of the people.
