1. The Law of Ancestral Inheritance which he stated as follows:
C. EXPERIMENTAL STUDY OF INHERITANCE
Other Mendelian Ratios
PROFESSOR EDWIN G. CONKLIN
THE observations of men in all ages have established the fact that in general “like produces like,” and that, in spite of many exceptions, children are in their main characteristics like their parents. And yet offspring are never exactly like their parents, and this has led to the saying that “like does not produce like but only somewhat like.”
IN eastern North America about thirty species of coniferous trees make up at least two thirds of the existing forest, while the remainder comprises something like 250 hardwood or broad-leaved species. About 70 per cent. of the lumber sawed in the eastern United States at the present time is of conifers or softwoods, and if the statistics for eastern Canada and for fuel, pulp-wood, cross-ties, poles, etc., were included the preponderance of softwood in the area under consideration would be still more evident.
THE VALUE OF RESEARCH IN THE DEVELOPMENT OF NATIONAL HEALTH1
PROFESSOR BENJAMIN MOORE
THE history of medical science presents to the curious student a remarkable development commencing in the latter half of the nineteenth century, and one worthy of special study, both on account of the light that it sheds on the present position and the illumination it affords for future progress.
THE president of a Section of the British Association has two very distinct precedents before him for his address; he can either set about a general review of the whole subject to which his section is devoted or he can give an account of one of his own investigations which he judges to be of wider interest and application than usual.
IF the final test of democracy in America is to come in the cities, as Jefferson phophesied in his “Notes on Virginia,” it would seem that the test should at least be a fair one. Yet the municipal machinery of the average American state permits anything but a fair trial of the democratic principle.
AN election is a psychological experiment on a large scale. The trouble with most elections, however, as psychological tests, is that the questions submitted are vague, complex and variously understood. If one could put a simple and unequivocal question such as “Are you in favor of capital punishment?” or, “Do you prefer cooperative to family housekeeping?” the answers might be of great informative value as to the mind of the population.
THE EVOLUTION OF SERVICE BY UNION AND COOPERATION, CONSERVATION AND EXCHANGE
I. Evolution and the Conduct of Life
II. The Mosaic Vision of Science
III. Tragic, Cooperative, and Benevolent Nature
IV. Creation, Evolution and Service
PROFESSOR WILLIAM PATTEN
THE specialist, who has wandered far into the wilderness of created things, seeking the solution of his problem at its source, must pause now and again to note the location of the sun and the direction in which the streams are flowing. Having done so, he well may greet his distant colleagues and send a field-note of progress to his friends at home.
THE ADDEESS OF THE PRESIDENT OF THE BRITISH ASSOCIATION FOR THE ADVANCEMENT OF SCIENCE
A COMPREHENSIVE STUDY OF A DESERT BASIN
THE meeting of the British Association for the Advancement of Science in Canada, in South Africa and now in Australia exhibits those national traits which led to the founding and development of these dominions, and year after year the president of the association represents the leadership in science which the British races have so continuously maintained since the time of Roger Bacon.
