there will be certain permanent exhibits of fundamental scientific interest, but perhaps more significant will be the system of rotating exhibits designed to show the latest discoveries in pure and applied science in ways readily intelligible to the general public. These exhibits will then be shown in other large centers throughout the country wherever satisfactory arrangements can be made. At the present moment, there is being shown a most striking exhibit of the wireless telephone and of the essential discoveries in pure science which have led up to its perfection. This exhibit has been prepared by the American Bell Telephone and Telegraph Company and the Western Electric Company, with assistance from the Signal Corps of the army.

It is hoped by these methods to arouse a much deeper and more widely disseminated public appreciation of the progress which is constantly going on in scientific work, and of the sig. nificance of this work for the prosperity of the commonwealth. If the Council can accomplish some fraction of the general purposes which have been outlined in this chapter, it may well feel that it has served its purpose. Its organization is plastic, and can be made to conform to the changing needs of successive generations. It is based upon an unselfish devotion to the development of human welfare through the most energetic prosecution of the resources of science.
