397. lappuse - ... may be increased by military discipline. The emphasis laid by Mr. Root on the importance of organization in science must not be misinterpreted. For many years he has been President of the Board of Trustees of the Carnegie Institution of Washington, and an active member of its Executive Committee. Thus kept in close touch with scientific research, he is well aware of the vital importance of individual initiative and the necessity of encouraging the independent efforts of the original thinker....

15. lappuse - MY DEAR DR. WELCH : I want to tell you with what gratification I have received the preliminary report of the National Research Council, which was formed at my request under the National Academy of Sciences.

xiii. lappuse - By every means in our power, therefore, let us show our appreciation of pure science, and let us forward the work of the pure scientists for they are the advance guard of civilization. They point the way which we must follow. Let us arouse the people of our country to the wonderful possibilities of scientific discovery and to the 238 AMERICAN SOCIETY FOR STEEL TREATING November responsibilities to suppport it which rests upon them, and I am sure they will respond generously and effectively.
397. lappuse - This attitude follows naturally from the demand of true scientific work for individual concentration and isolation. The sequence, however, is not necessary or laudable.
