Abstract

Under the Organization Section in this issue of The Journal appears an analysis of legislation pending in the 79th Congress to implement the recommendations regarding research contained in the report recently submitted to President Truman by Dr. Vannevar Bush. In addition to the proposals analyzed in this article, several others have been introduced with a view to continuance in the postwar period of the coordinated and intensified research that did so much for the advancement of medical and other sciences during the war. For instance, one measure introduced by Mr. Thomas of Utah on July 26 is designed toward increasing interest in children while they are in secondary schools.

The number and diversity of the measures proposed are themselves an evidence of the difficulty of finding a formula for the purpose that will accomplish the desirable objectives without introducing factors harmful both to research and to our system of government.
