Fellowships for Research in Nutrition.  —Scientific attack on problems of the American diet was furthered recently by a series of fellowships established by Swift and Company for research in nutrition to aid the federal government in its long range national nutrition program.The fellowships provide for special research to be undertaken in laboratories of universities and medical schools with funds which the company has set aside as grants in aid beginning Nov. 1, 1941. The fellowships will be for one year but may be renewed if the project warrants.Any fundamental study of the nutritive properties of foods or the application of such information to improvement of the American diet and health will be eligible for consideration for a grant, according to Dr. R. C. Newton, vice president in charge of the company's research laboratories, who will coordinate the program.
