A very large proportion of the scientific research of the United States is conducted in the laboratories of educational institutions. It is now widely appreciated that contact with knowledge in the making is the most effective means of seizing and holding the student's attention. And it is also recognized that no greater injury can be done to the cause of science than to compel a promising investigator, fresh from the researches of his graduate years, to relinquish all hopes of further studies because of the complete absorption of his time and energy by other duties.
