    THE Educational Centress Association is arranging a non-technical course for laymen and men of science who want an opportunity of studying the relations between science and society ; it is to be held at West-ham House ,Barford, near Leamington, Warwickshire, during August 20–27. Inquiry will be made into the application of science to the raising of the standard of living and of bodily health ; and in considering the reciprocal issues between science and society particular attention will be paid to recent developments in industrial and agricultural practice and to such topical questions as the atomic bomb and the Lysenko controversy. The course will be conducted by lectures and by seminar discussions, and during the latter students will concentrate either on chemical and physical considerations or on biology as applied to nutrition and disease. Further particulars can be obtained from the Education Secretary, Educational Centres Association, 8 Endsleigh Gardens, London, W.C.I.
