    THE twenty-fifth annual council meeting of the Association of Scientific Workers was held during May 2-3 at the London School of Hygiene under the chairmanship of the president, Mr. R. A. Watson Watt, F. R. S. About two hundred delegates, representing the eighty-four branches into which the membership of almost six thousand is divided, attended the Council. In his opening address Mr. Watson Watt spoke of the remarkable growth of the Association especially since its registration as a trade union, and its affiliation to the T. U. C. Referring to the Conference on “Science and the War Effort” convened by the Association in January last, he said that in spite of the success of that Conference it is necessary to persist if the criticisms made then of the misuse of science in the national effort are to result in practical action.
