Detailed reports of the annual spring meetings of the Arkansas Academy of Science have been sent out to all members. Therefore, only a summary of Academy activities for a more permanent record will be reviewed. Further secretarial information will be found in tabular forms elsewhere. While the period under discussion has never been equaled before in history, the Academy has held meetings each spring, though on a smaller scale. In the meantime new evidence that the people of our part of the country sense the importance of research in industry may be seen in the new research organizations such as the University Bureau of Research, The Southern Association of Science and Industry, The Gulf of Southwest Industrial and Agricultural Conference, Inc. and the Midwest Research Institute.
