THE report of the Secretary of the Smithsonian Institution, Washington, D.C., for the year ended tune 30, 1947, which includes reports on the newly letablished National Air Museum and on the Canal tone Biological Area, recently placed under the i administration of the Institution, records the resumplion and, in some directions, expansion of much of the normal research and field-work suspended during the War. Accessions to the National Museum are back to pre-war levels, and the International Exchange Service has considerably reduced the accumulation of material for foreign exchange built up during the war years, and the service will soon be again on a current basis. The two greatest needs of the Institution are additional staff and more building space.
