Training the Research Worker


    IN his annual report for 1947–48 to the Trustees of the Carnagie institution of Washington, Dr. Vannevar Buel president of the Institution, again refers to the appropriate relationship between the governing board and the scientific staff in such instituations, and particularly in regard to the shaping Prgrammes of research. Dr. Bush's discussion of these relations is of considerable general interest, particularly when greater attention is being paid to the organisation of research staff in industry and when the general conditions and conduct of academic research are being re-examined.
