    A PERMANENT Commission for the Application of Psychology has recently been appointed, by the Italian National Board of Researches. It aims at promoting among State institutions, labour organizations and private persons the application of psychology in any field, with regard to selection and orientation, as well as to the organization of work. At present, applications in the scholastic field, where professional orientation has become a function of the school, are being studied in the first place; applications in industries, aviation and public transport will follow. The president of the Commission is Prof. P. Agostino Gemelli.
